Dear Gossips, Sundance – the Swag is obnoxious and the Poseurs are obnoxious but Sundance is also the great equaliser. In a town where, theoretically, it’s too cold for famef&ckers to toss their tits and bits about for attention, bundling up means concealing the flesh, and when your eyes aren’t drawn to sensory skank overload, it actually means the Boys have a chance. And Sundance is FULL of pretty boys. Beautiful boys. Famous and not famous milling about Main Street and not all of them gay… Heaven. Still…back to the famef&ckers – seriously, I love them. Women of all ages and sizes trying like ass to get in, sneak in, bribe their way in anywhere THEY happened to hanging, no matter what the cost or consequence. Saturday night we were at the MySpace/Tao party – Pharrell and Mos Def scheduled to perform, Diddy showed, Sienna showed, almost everyone showed – and these tramps were crashing the door, literally crashing the door, begging security with the most pathetic but creatively inspiring promises, willing to offer their first born for the privilege of partying with the blessed… It’s the kind of shameless blowing you can’t help but admire. Full Sundance report below and more… Monday – live updates in between travel. Check back often for fresh posts, scroll below for late articles from Friday. Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. Much appreciation to Mackage for the warmest, most beautiful coat ever – so gorgeous even the girls at the Fred Segal lounge were impressed. Tune in to eTalk tomorrow to check it out. And also to Shelley and Gina from the MAC Cosmetics Pro Team, providing makeup services for celebrities at Sundance, for getting my face on for a full weekend of partying. Thank you, love you, owe you! PPS. Canada – be proud. We are represented in fine fashion this year at Sundance with Sarah Polley leading the way. The film is called Away From Her and is already generating lofty expectations for a possible Award Season run in 07/08.

Dear Gossips, Gwyneth is coming. Gwyneth is coming to Sundance. Honestly, there are parts of the day when I think about this and I can hardly breath. The best part about Sundance so far? Definitely the poseurs – Kfed lookalikes flanked by scantily clad famef*ckettes cruising Main Street looking for celebrities…almost as enjoyable as going to a hockey game and observing the Hockey Whores. Oh…and Robert Redford is a stud. Saw him at the opening press conference yesterday, like all movie stars he was shorter than you’d expect but still kinda hot. In that older dude kinda hot way. And hair the most mesmerising shade of… Yellow. Wrinkled but sexy weathered wrinkles that go well with his deep voice and thoughtful banter and his willingness to say whatever the hell he wants. Many of you have observed that Brad Pitt bears a striking resemblance 20 years younger and if that really is where he’s headed – definitely NOT a bad thing. Star-filled weekend ahead, will keep you posted if I don’t freeze first. As for Isaiah Washington? Maybe I’m just a grudge-keeping petty ass bitch but what’s an apology with a gun to your head? Does “Sorry” really mean “Sorry” when it comes only out of consequence? Nope. Not to me. Can his ass. Hire someone else. Let him watch Burke from the privacy of Unemployment Central as he entertains offers from Patricia Heaton for a talk show about “Family Values”. Friday – blogging throughout the day, check back often for new posts, and have a great weekend! Yours in gossip, Lainey

Quiver for the Jigga

At the GM Style Show on Saturday. What is it about Jay Z? Definitely not empirically good looking….probably far from, in fact. And yet…there’s something, you know? It’s the way he looks in his clothes, I think. Jay Z has great clothes, better clothes perhaps than Puffy Diddy Daddy. And an air of something rather distinguished. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson: a goddess is forgiving

If it were up to me, she’d be single and lookin’ for Colin Farrell. Unfortunately for Colin, Scarlett has other plans and after bungling his relationship with her the first time ‘round, it appears that Josh has groveled his way back into Scarjo’s good books and the lucky sod was proudly making out with her in NYC last week. Full Story

Three Whiskers and The Lion

Look how it wilts against Leo. Orly de-whiskered of late, with a true heavyweight at the Ecofabulous Party Benefiting Global Green yesterday, perhaps getting some helpful pointers about how to evolve from teen scream to legitimate actor beyond sprouting a few sparsely placed chin hairs. But is it too late? If he couldn’t live up to the manly quotient for the Crusades, how will he ever overcome the whimpering whisker? Definitely a career crossroads for Orlando Bloom. Full Story

La Posh et Le Karl

Despite what you may think, this is NOT a wax figure of my Posh. It is actually her, in the flesh, at the Bambi Awards in Stuttgard, alongside Karl Lagerfeld who must have been in a good mood since he didn’t bitchbeat her concrete tits with his Bitchbeating Fan. Actually, the Bitchbeating Fan seems to be missing, though the fashion torture gloves are present and accounted for and not put into use. Full Story

Ryan Gosling, Oscar Buzz

Best Actor at the Stockholm Film Festival – obviously not as prestigious as the others but in a year when no clear frontrunner has emerged and it’s already late November, Ryan Gosling is currently firmly planted in 7th or 8th place, maybe even higher. Definitely could make the five nominee list if there’s enough of a push, though lack of studio power might kill those aspirations, and if so…too bad as his performance has been praised unanimously across the board. Full Story

Little Sci goes to City Hall

In Rome, Little Sci with her parents dressed in white – paperwork perhaps in advance of the Saturday ceremony? Sorry gossips…can’t help it. But she is sooooo cute! And soooo long! Clearly not her father’s genes… And um…don’t mean to be catty but is the GMD looking a little less taut these days? As in bulging out of that suit? Definitely not as fit as he was in MI:3 which I just saw this weekend, not a bad movie actually, and he did look…even cute…until he jumped on his manly man motorcycle and then I had to giggle. Full Story

Possessive Posh hates the Pound

Snoop Dogg says he wanted to hang with Becks but was shut down by his wife because she thought he’d be a bad influence…and can you blame her??? With all due respect to Snoop, and I do love Snoop, he doesn’t exactly make for innocent company especially in the company of a prolific cheater. Seriously… Can you imagine how much poon would get pillaged in the wake of a Dogg/David hook up? Definitely support my Posh on this one. Full Story

In light of the report today in the UK Daily Mail, perhaps it"s timely to revisit a post from the past - an article I wrote in 2004 after British tabloids first starting yammering about her alleged and expensive cosmetic enhancement. Full Story

Take a look at this photo. Provocative, non? Would it make you feel any different to learn that HER FATHER took this??? And sold them to WireImage? Sorry…maybe I'm just an Asian prude but to me? That's f-cking creepy.   There is nothing profound in saying that our lives are shaped by Defining Moments, moments that dictate each and every move thereafter, experiences that form the basis of future experiences and how we react to them. Full Story

It Should Be Reese

Talk about lighting up a room... America"s Sweetheart? Please make it Reese. Because in the battle for boring black and the MiniVan Majority vote, chin for chin...Reese trumps the other. Having children instead of pretending to actually want them, a bonafide movie career, an Oscar-winning movie career, clever PR campaigning too, and perhaps a little fraud thrown in for good measure - Reese is the one, don"t you think? Here she is at the Children"s Defence Fund event last night, glowing in black, beautiful with red lips, and oh - a loose little blouse too, sure to elicit the incessant bumpwatch. Full Story
