Just fedexed 3 dresses for donation (Lida Baday, Sweet Chemise, and Temperley) to the Frocktail Party on November 12th in support of Juvenile Diabetes Research. Major Canadian designers have also contributed, and Coco Rochas is parting her Sunny Fong (want!), and my colleague Tanya Kim who has the most badass wardrobe is gifting one of hers too… so if you’re looking for something to wear for your holiday parties, it’s a great way to do it while giving back at the same time.

“Eff love”, she says. “Because love is so blind”.
This a brief a quote from Rihanna’s interview with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America Thursday during which she addresses the beating she took at the hands of Chris Brown and her decision to leave him after initially going back to him. By far the most insightful however is her answer to the question: why the shame?
Rihanna tells Diane: "I fell in love with this person. That's embarrassing, that that's the type of person that I fell in love with. So far in love. So unconditional that I went back. It's humiliating to say this happened. To accept that? It's a traumatizing experience."
THAT TYPE OF PERSON.
Right. So now that person is granting interviews of his own. To MTV. He fares better here than on Larry King Live but that’s the difference, I suppose. Larry King Live is live. MTV can be heavily edited. Even sh-ttier though is the fact that Brown’s new album release date has been moved up by one week. Some say it’s because the record company is encouraged by advance buzz and the earlier drop is an attempt to capitalise on that momentum for holiday shopping. F-cking stupid, that’s what.

Yours in gossip,
Diane Kruger in New York at a Chanel event and Fete d’Hiver. Am crying. Tears of hungry want. So bad. Of course it’s Chanel. And therefore completely unaffordable. But it’s the perfect colour and the perfect cap sleeves and the perfect fit and f-ck her for wearing it and also loving Joshua Jackson because she does and they do and she slips in and out of Vancouver undetected every other weekend or so and she was here for Halloween and they walked around downtown undisturbed and totally wrapped in each other and this dress … when I daydream about me and James Franco, I will be wearing this dress.

Good on James Marsden. Finally. Because he’s almost always the other guy. Except with Katherine Heigl. He was the guy for her in 27 Dresses. Which is almost worse than being the other guy. In The Box however James is Cameron’s guy. It’s a thriller about a box and a million dollars and a button that kills someone… and what do you do? Trailer is below and the film opens on Friday.

Best way to wash the sick of Polanski away? Mimi Cheese! Who else would appear on Ellen and show off her garters? Please. I just watched it this morning. It’s making up for the rain. She managed to walk by herself up to the couches. SO. PROUD. I have replayed this part 3 times. Because her face as she emerges, and the double waves, while tottering on her shoes, is the most amazing of amazingness in the history of amazings. Full Story
Emma Thompson put her name on that petition. You know the one. The one that so many of them signed in support of Roman Polanski. SO MANY. And among them so many of our favourites. Like Emma Thompson. But now an update, thanks to Elizabeth for sending the link. Apparently Emma was recently confronted by someone disappointed in her decision and she explained that she’d been rethinking it and promised to remove her name from the list. Full Story
The Yankees celebrated their World Series victory last night at 1Oak and their WAGs were invited. All the ladies, and Chace Crawford too. Because he’s, like, so totally into sports. Please. Chace is barely qualified to hold Matsui’s bat. Still… a man party is a man party and Chace has man bangs he wants to show off. Full Story
