Dear Gossips,

Dress porn takes priority. So we’re covering the Met Gala first, then everything else after Smutty Tingles. It will be a heavy day on the blog. Very heavy. So if you’re visiting late in the day, please scroll down and click VIEW OLDER to get caught up. This opening and a many of the early posts were written through the night so if there are new photos that are worth seeing, I’ll get those up later. We’ll try to load the pictures and the articles to the site as quickly as possible but given that there is commentary that accompanies each set, I may be slower than some of my peers. Will try to be worth the wait.

As always, please do send your thoughts. Every message is read, eagerly. And I look forward to the unspoken arguments, raging through the ether, from your inbox to mine.

Ready?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. The Desert Dogs took out the Predators! And I love being wrong if it means the Country Bitch isn’t going to the Stanley Cup.

This became the face of Chanel

Where was Chanel last night at the Met Gala? Why was Karl so underrepresented? E! News is reporting that Chanel No 5 has signed Brad Pitt as the face of the fragrance. Apparently the deal is worth 7 figures and he’ll shoot the ad in London some time this month. Full Story

First look at Charlize Theron’s son Jackson as she makes her way to Europe for Snow White And The Huntsman and Prometheus promotion. Jackson is not Louis, Sandra Bullock’s son. Sometimes people get confused, you know? So...Is Jackson a new Baby Pimp?Well. Full Story

Her name is Joan Smalls. She is a model. She accompanied Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing to the Met Gala. I’ve received several messages today about this, specifically re: Zoe Saldana, and why no one is talking about her from last night.No one is talking about Zoe Saldana because SHE WASN’T THERE. Full Story

Smash Season 1 Episode 14 recapI know it's going to make you fall off your chair but "Previews" was the episode I liked best in awhile. There was a plot that moved from A to B to C, and that's more than we've had to hang onto in a long while. Also, we saw actual production numbers in the show, and for the most part, they're pretty flawless. Full Story

Hot Harry goes to Washington... in a tux!

Hot Harry was in Washington yesterday to receive an award in recognition of his work with wounded servicemen. He was surrounded by military men. He seemed very comfortable. And he looked perfect in his tux. And he may or may not be bootycalling Chelsy Davy. UK gossips say the two are sneaking around again but not “officially” back together. Full Story

Girls Season 1 Episode 4 recapThe naming of Jessa's young charges on this show is a triumph. I'm not being tongue in cheek at all. Lola and Beatrix. The names fit perfectly. Demographically, historically, the names are even well spaced, as they would have been popular at the exact times each girl was born. Full Story

We’re arguing about a lot today. But I doubt we’re arguing about this, right? There was no one worse than this. Kate Upton apparently went to Anna Wintour and asked for a ticket, offering to pay her own way in. I hate to say it...but you can tell.They say there model classes, as Sophia Neophitou infamously declared Full Story

Young, fresh, and boxy at the Met: Carey Mulligan & Kristen Stewart

Beautiful girls, both. And willing to experiment. The results aren’t necessarily perfect but there is imagination here, there is spark, and if this is any indication, there’s much to look forward to in Kristen Stewart’s collaboration with Balenciaga. LOVE the tank he’s put her in on top but I’m just not sure this particular styling isn’t better suited to a premiere rather than a gala. Full Story

Pull back at the Met: Rihanna in Tom Ford

Succeeding where Cameron Diaz couldn’t...Rihanna doesn’t get enough credit for how fashionably astute she is. You expect her to show up here with horns or vagina-riding a surfboard, some kind of crazy, and instead she lets Tom Ford do exactly what Tom Ford does best. Tom Ford owned the Oscars with a white cape for Gwyneth Paltrow. Full Story
