The hair will always be crazy and in her face. And a nest in the back. And I’m not sure any stylist would admit to having created it. Can you imagine HBC having her hair done anyway? Or by anyone else? She did this in the hotel, right? Had to have. And then there’s the dress. It’s fine up top before disintegrating into frayed pieces at the bottom. Full Story

Renee Zellweger went back to her favourite, Carolina Herrera, to present at the Oscars. It was one of several “tank” style dresses with gold accents that we saw on the night -- including Catherine Zeta-Jones, with whom she presented. It didn’t work for Zeta and it doesn’t work for Renee. Full Story

I’ve always been entertained by the FLOTUS acronym, and I feel like it gets used in print and not enough out loud, not least because “First Lady” is an annoying title to have. So much more often, she’s just called Michelle Obama, which I think is her subtle way of trying to phase out the phrase. Full Story

I couldn’t come up with it in 140 words or less on Twitter in time but my point is -- did you have a reaction to the fact that Michael Douglas and Jane Fonda make more sense than Michael Douglas and Catherine-Zeta Jones…? Many of you thought it was damage control that they showed up together just as rumours spread last week that they’re in trouble. Full Story

We have a very specific way of covering major award shows here at LaineyGossip; it takes us longer but it’s only because we want to talk about everything like you’re talking about everything when you were watching, instead of just throwing up the pictures right away. Also, we love to argue about it. Full Story

Justin Timberlake posed with fans at BBC Radio 1 today while continuing to promote his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience in London. Do you think that a year ago, he was hoping that he’d be in LA instead, getting ready to attend the Oscars as a nominee? At any point while shooting Trouble With The Curve, do you think he allowed himself to believe that working with Clint would get him consideration? This makes me laugh. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence is considered one of the favourites for Best Actress on Sunday (even though more and more momentum seems to be shifting to Emmanuelle Riva). Taking advantage of her profile going into the weekend, promotional images from two separate campaigns not related to Silver Linings Playbook have been released. Full Story

Well I guess this is how it works with Taylor Swift -- any time she shows up somewhere with a new guy, they must be dating. This new guy is called Tom Odell, a British musician. They met at the BRIT Awards earlier this week. Last night they hit up a pub and then the Groucho Club. (Can you picture Taylor Swift throwing back a pint?) It’s understandable, being in London, on Harry Styles’s territory, why Taylor would want some company. Full Story
