At the Deauville Film Festival yesterday and also at the premiere of The Private Lives of Pippa Lee with Rebecca Miller. Robin Wright looks amazing, non? Total photo assumption, of course, but it’s like we never saw her this relaxed, open, and enthusiastic in pictures when she was with Sean Penn. Full Story
Everyone here in Toronto is on high Clooney alert. Even though he hasn’t travelled more than 3 blocks from his hotel since arriving, he cannot go anywhere on foot. Must be in a car from stop to stop, even if it’s only 100 yards, not because he’s high maintenance but because it’s a security issue. Full Story
She is determined to hide this pregnancy for as long as she can. Penelope Cruz’s Broken Embraces screened at TIFF last night and Pene picked the perfect dress to hide the burgeoning bump. It’s beautifully cut, non? Drapes well, is still flattering, shows off her best assets: Those legs. Full Story
Is this the latest figure to be inducted into London’s Madame Tussauds? Nope, it’s just Victoria Beckham coming out of her Mattel box for the night to do a t-shirt signing at Bergdorf Goodman for New York’s Fashion Week. Seriously, all the fuss about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch could just be a sighting of Posh doing the backstroke in the ocean. Full Story
Jennifer Connelly looks beautiful IN SPITE of that dress. Jacek loves it of course because of the see-through breasts. This is the problem. It’s not just that it isn’t photographing with the light, it’s also that it’s not a particularly great fit. The material clings awkwardly around her chest, looks cheap. Full Story
To Maggie aka Buddy celebrating her birthday in New York – have a great time! And here are a few of your favourite photos specially selected by Brianne. Happy birthday Lindsay B! Wish I could be at your keg party Saturday. 4 kegs??? Ryan is generous! For Christine S – Happy 20th Birthday! Don’t be sad – you’re not allowed to be sad on your birthday. Full Story
I like the name Sparrow. Better than some of the so-called “normal” names out there. Like Chad. Sparrow > Chad. Chad is the “party on, dude!!!” Gross.
As for the argument that calling a child Sparrow will invite a beating…yes… for a kid in your neighbourhood, totally. But Sparrow is growing up with Zuma and Bronx and Princess and Inspektor and Poet and Lyric and Sonnet…
They don’t live where we do. Pointless to judge them based on a set of criteria that doesn’t apply to their world especially since they won’t be hanging out with your kids.
In Toronto now for TIFF kicking off tonight. George Clooney is already here. Arrived yesterday. But without the Elisabetta. Boo. I love her. Have become totally obsessed with her. You ever visit her official website? Poke around in there and remember – she’s dating George Clooney. HER!!!
Blogging all day today. Check back often. Also look out for Alan’s first post.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Drew Barry Live @ etalk! On Saturday September 12th! I offered to open doors and sweep floors just to be there. Laura grudgingly said yes, like she was doing me a favour or something. You however can be part of the audience. See how tiny she is in person. Very, very little. Interested? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gwen Stefani at NY Fashion Week. Last night Anna Wintour attended a party in her honour. Today it was the runway. Want the jacket, want the bag, want the shoes, want the pants. Also want how she wears the pants. Why can’t I wear my pants like that? Duana bought a L.A.M.B. bag in LA last year and she has pretty much used it exclusively since. Full Story
This is Anna Kendrick leaving Vancouver heading to Toronto for TIFF for one of the most highly anticipated films of the festival. Yes. The one I won't stop yapping about: Up In The Air. It will not make nearly as much money as New Moon, but then again, prestige or profit? Lucky for Anna, she gets to enjoy both. Full Story
The opening gala tonight at TIFF at Roy Thompson is for Creation starring the aforementioned Jennifer Connelly. Normally that’s the big cheese. But at the Elgin it’s Penelope Cruz for Broken Embraces with Pedro Almodovar. And it’ll will be a clustesrf-ck too. Especially since she’s pregnant. Full Story
