Is that how it works? Because Blake Lively is a regular at this event. And she didn’t show. Oh I’m sure there’s an official reason that works for everyone, a reason that doesn’t involve petty gossip. But still. And yet. Blake considers herself a fashion girl. The fashion girls were all in New York. Love matters more though than a pretty dress. Full Story

Blake Lively opted not to go and stay in Vancouver with Ryan Reynolds instead. This was Leighton’s time to make her move. And she has proved she can do well at the Met Gala. She was great last year in Louis Vuitton - click here for a refresher - and a major winner also in Louis Vuitton in 2009 - click here Full Story

Sometimes...it’ll just never be your league, you know? And that has nothing to do with what you think I think of her. There were several TV girls present last night. All of them were TV girly by Gwyneth Paltrow’s definition. Dianna Agron, totally. Lea Michele, 100%. But Kristen Bell was TV girliest of them all. Full Story

Renee Zellweger and Carolina Herrera are like... I mean it’s a longstanding style collaboration. And, frankly, as I’ve noted before, it was getting kinda stale. So this, this is a very pleasant surprise. Here’s Renee with Peter Dundas, artistic director at Emilio Pucci. With Renee, an open bony back is a must. Full Story

You want a costume?THIS is a costume. THIS is art. It’s exquisite. It’s a statement. It’s requires a specific wearer. And you can’t wear it anywhere else. You can’t even find it anywhere else. Unlike what we just saw with Michael Kors and Alba and Swank, Florence Welch in McQueen by Sarah Burton is what you’ll remember. Full Story

Michael Kors dressed a lot of people last night including Jessica Alba and Hilary Swank. I mean, there’s nothing technically wrong with this, or any of his other guests, with one major exception, but it’s really not all that exciting either, is it? Is this Met Gala worthy? There’s Alba’s one shoulder burnt gold that’s forgettable at best and Swank’s in unremarkable red with a high collar that you know you’ve seen before just in a different colour and maybe with a small variation in detail. Full Story

Anna Wintour presides over this event. Its official name is the Costume Institute Gala. So, as I say every year, this is NOT the Academy. There is no constituency here from Palm Springs to fellate. The people you want to blow are the precious fashion bitches. In other words, the style assessment has a slightly different standard. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Met Gala is tonight - it’s the dress porniest event of the year! As always, we’ll go hard on the recap tomorrow. Judging from the arrivals I’ve seen so far over the last couple of days in New York, it’s looking like another good one.  Read Full Intro

Clench up, Legolas!

The first time I saw The Avengers, I nearly lost my f-cking mind over this line. There are so many lines. We could totally geek out for an hour on a liveblog just throwing lines back at each other. But this is why I love Tony Stark. Because he’s the greatest. “Shakespeare in the park” is another favourite. Full Story

Linda Evangelista has reached a settlement with her baby father Francois Henri-Pinault which apparently came as a surprise to the media waiting outside the courthouse today. Right now, as it just happened an hour ago, the terms of the deal have not been disclosed but...Linda was supposed to testify today. Full Story
