Dear Gossips,

Every year there’s only one party I want to go to during Oscar week. Soho House/Grey Goose is always f-cking epic. Two years ago we danced back to back with Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore. Last year Jennifer Aniston was eating at a table behind us and Robert Pattinson dined at a table in front of us and Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, and Mimi sat separately but paid their respects (to each other) while the entire room watched.  Read Full Intro

Demi to present and Cammie again???

More presenters have been added to the Oscar list for Sunday. Among them Demi Moore and Cameron Diaz. Demi tweeted that she was at rehearsal today. Last night she and Ashton Kutcher hit up the Hollywood Dominos event - a regular for them. As you can see, she's in top form for awards season. Very very fresh. Full Story

Like it or not?

Ryan Kwanten was working a new look last night at the 3rd annual Women in Film event. Hair smoothed down and glasses, still a little sweaty in the face but kind of adorable all the same. Or not? It's maybe not my favourite but I prefer this over what we've seen from him before: open shirts and douchey looking necklaces, Vegas skeeze styles. Full Story

The GMD’s Oscar tan

With the exception of the Brange and Depp, all the heavy hitters are in town for Oscar week. It’s when sh-t gets done. And what would a high profile week be without the presence of the GMD reminding us that he’s still relevant? Tom Cruise spoke last night at the 5th Annual Oscar Wilde: Honoring The Irish In Film event, riding up on his bike, all manly mans in his biker jacket, delivering his remarks with trademark intensity and jaw-clenching emphasis. Full Story

We’re at the end now. There are several names I can’t get to. The list was just too long, one of the most impressive party turnouts in recent memory. And what exactly makes this impressive? Well, any time Madonna shows up it’s never, ever a bust. Soho House West Hollywood is situated on the top 2 floors of an office tower on Sunset featuring a wraparound glass terrace and a huge patio with a pond on one end. Full Story

Soho House/Grey Goose Part 4

Only caught a quick glimpse of Natalie Portman and her new man. She is SO small. And that skirt is shorter than you think. The outfit also looks better than it photographs. Portman was having a word with Carey Mulligan. It was all I could do not to have a Sapphic meltdown all over the grand piano. Mulligan stayed close to Maggie Gyllenhaal most of the time, with Peter Sarsgaard coming in and out of their little area. Full Story

Soho House/Grey Goose Part 3

If you missed the first 2 parts, please scroll down. Dan and I spent a lot of time marvelling at Jason Bateman, wondering what kind of elixir he must be drinking to look so eternally young. I mean it’s astonishing. He is so handsome and he’s working a nice tan and he doesn’t look leathery and there’s still a boyishness about him that’s totally adorable. Full Story

Soho House/Grey Goose Part 2

If you missed the first part, please scroll down. Seems like Kelly Osbourne is Dave LaChapelle's new muse. Well...she's skinny now, right? Kelly had her hair done Marilyn Monroe styles, in a bedazzled silver teacup dress, like Balenciaga 2 yrs ago. Kelly is thin, small, and shy. Didn't seem entirely comfortable, almost as though she was asking herself how she got here. Full Story

There's a lot to say. And I'm shooting at the Kodak right now so blogging on my blackberry. Don't want you to wait so long for me to write so am splitting last night's observations into several posts. Photos will come later when the agency sends to me. For now we're using file shots. Full Story

Rihanna for Megan

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 5, 2010 07:40:13 March 5, 2010 07:40:13

This is for Megan who is trying to be brave. When it feels sh-tty, you’re right, there’s no better choice than Harry Potter. And of course here’s Rihanna to get you through. Good luck on Tuesday. It’s time to join the world again. I know you’ll be great. As for Rihanna – she was in Berlin yesterday for the Echo Awards. Full Story
