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

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

Mad Men Season 5 Episode 8 recapIt is the mark of a show like Mad Men that even the episodes that aren't the strong pillars of television art, the ones that don't end with everyone together at a maudlin dinner table, has the ability to surprise.  There are things that happened this week that I didn't think could exist in the world of SDCP, but they keep expanding our world, the one we share with them, to make the impossible true. Full Story
