Dear Gossips,

Welcome back from the Labour Day Holiday. You ready? Summer Smut is over. We are balls deep in the middle of festival season as Venice and Deauville happened concurrently this weekend, to be eclipsed by TIFF which begins on Thursday and NY Fashion Week on Friday.  Read Full Intro

Leather & Tartan

This is Emma Watson arriving in London at the British GQ Awards in leather and tartan which reminds me a little of Sarah Jessica in Alexander McQueen at the Met Gala several years ago so I’m thinking this might be McQueen too? Perfect for her. A great look. Just the right amount of young and a little bad assy too. Full Story

My friend Lorella took her boys back to school shopping the other day. She messaged me about not being able to find Laurentian colour pencils which are, we both agreed, FAR superior to Crayola. I tried to stay away from retailers this weekend knowing it would be back to school crazy but as I’m leaving for Toronto tomorrow and TIFF for 10 days, I needed some supplies too. Full Story

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy looks to have lived up to expectation in Venice. Reviews are very, very good. It’s now well positioned for an award season run. And what a cast. Several of them were at the festival for the photo call and the gala including Colin Firth, always dashing, with wife Livia, and Benedict Cumberbatch whose fans have been more and more vociferous lately about his inclusion on the site. Full Story

Written by Sasha My wedding is coming up and I hate "the big, white dress" thing, but it's a traditional Catholic ceremony, so I sucked it up and got one. To add a little punch, I also got a royal blue shrug-type jacket from anthropologie with a cute, ruffley neckline and a bow on the back. Full Story

The Ides of March played to medium plus reviews in Venice. Not bad. The Descendants however was very, VERY well received in Telluride this weekend. Most agree, at this early stage, that George Clooney will earn another Best Actor nomination for this performance, on top of whatever he may get for Ides. Full Story

Carey Mulligan: beach, ring, boyfriend?

Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire (with wife and children) spent some down time at Bondi Beach this weekend. They’re in Australia shooting Gatsby. Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t seem to have any interest joining his colleagues on these occasions. This... doesn’t make me want to like him. You know what I do like a lot about Carey? I like that she’s not dressed up in cute clothes at the beach. Full Story

New week, more Fassbender

You horny broads seemed to enjoy it last week. And since Michael Fassbender was in Venice for Shame, in addition to David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, more photos are available to start the new week. They’re saying he gives a searing performance in Shame directed by Steve McQueen. They’re saying his portrayal of a sex addict shows the promise of an actor who may be the heir to. Full Story

Gwyneth, Venice, Beysus, no Madge

Gwyneth Paltrow and her good friend Matt Damon, with his wife Luciana, were in Venice this weekend promoting Contagion. G was slouchy and tired looking in orange Prada at the photo call, though I love the shoes that were paired with the outfit, and she chose Prada again for the gala, a blush bow gown that’s almost like the 15 years later sequel to her infamous Oscar pink Ralph Lauren, remember? Love her (me) or hate her (you), here’s what you can’t argue about Gwyneth Paltrow: she makes expensive things look expensive. Full Story

George Lucas keeps ruining our childhood

Written by Sarah Last year was the 30th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back. I’m not a huge Star Wars nerd, but I’m enough of a Star Wars nerd to be excited about this, especially since the Field Museum hosted a charity screening of Empire, which afterward included a cocktail reception honoring Lucas. Full Story
