Alice, Anne, and Avril

Tonight in London, the premiere of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Can’t decide if I like Anne Hathaway’s dress. Love the colour, love the styling, but maybe the chest is pulled up too high? Not important. I don’t have to like the dress to like the overall look. The overall look is lovely, sultry, sleek, sexy. Full Story

The classic coat

If you’re Canadian you know this coat. It’s part of Canadian fashion history, was unconsidered uncool for a while, and has now been resurrected, tweaked, and remarketed... with so much buzz that they’re all over it in New York. Jeanne Beker of Fashion Television wears hers all around town. Full Story

Heard from many Christensen/Bilson fans who were jazzy about the new photos yesterday and today there are a lot more. Still in Vancouver enjoying the atmosphere of the Olympics, Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson once again spent a low key afternoon in town on Monday, taking the ferry over to Granville Island, enjoying some Mexican food outside on the benches. Full Story

Hayden Christensen arrived in Vancouver on Saturday with Rachel Bilson. He was spotted out and about among the masses downtown, popped into Future Shop, then hit up the NHL Club Bud party with Rachel at the Commodore. Hayden worked the carpet briefly while she ducked inside. They did not stay long. Jon Hamm stayed much longer. Full Story

For non-Canadians, HBC stands for Hudson’s Bay Company, basically Canada’s signature department store. Been around forever. Like pioneer styles. HBC is also the official Olympic clothing sponsor of Team Canada. And everyone is walking around with the gear. There are line-ups outside the store in Vancouver around the corner at all hours of the day, not just Canadians, but people from around the world dressing themselves in head to toe Maple Leaf. Full Story

Celine Dion: Through the Eyes of the World hits theatres this weekend. Celine and the family attended the premiere in Miami last night. There’s her angel, her miracle, her amazingness, her most wonderful, the blessed, the child of her life and love and existence, the transcendental, the elemental, the every word that describes every great feeling – her son Rene Charles. Full Story

They all try to act and sing

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 15, 2010 15:58:00 February 15, 2010 15:58:00

Why do they all have to do both? Country Bitch can sing. Who says she can act? The same applies to so many of them. In reverse too. Like Leighton Meester. Acting good. Singing, no. Anyway, here’s the Country Bitch in Hawaii shooting Soul Surfer this weekend showing off her best Country BitchFace. Full Story

Ryan on love

GO away! Or give a bad interview. Act like a douchebag. Be like Ryan Reynolds. Live inside your own ass, snarl at fans and photographers. Stop being sweet and sex at the same time. Stop being so engaging and intense. Stop being so interesting and interested. Even in a journalist. Like paying attention to what she says. Full Story

Look at me like you look at her

I cursed Shannon for sending me this video of Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams at Sundance being interviewed for Blue Valentine. You’ll know why as soon as you hit play, the way he focuses on what she says, the way he can’t take his eyes off her, how he follows her eyes with his eyes from the side, and then he touches her. Full Story

Grammy Country Bitch and the Senator

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 1, 2010 07:29:41 February 1, 2010 07:29:41

He rushed to LA to be by her side after Hockey Day in Canada as the Senators schedule conveniently allowed for Mike Fisher to join his fiancée for Grammy weekend where they made their official Hollywood debut. However, Carrie Underwood walked the carpet alone, telling Ryan Seacrest that she didn’t want to feed Fisher to the wolves just yet. Full Story

Free hands, no pockets

We run on weekends in the endowment lands, a forest in Vancouver with great trails and light hills and the most beautiful trees, and a section that looks like the ewok territory from Return of the Jedi. I used to go alone, with Marcus, but Fiona and head up there together because there are now some safety concerns after an attack last year. Full Story
