These are tough economic times. Even Hollywood, even celebrities must downsize. And even the famed Vanity Fair Oscar party is scaling down too. It is one of the most coveted invitations of the year. And it will be even more so in 2009. Normally held at Morton’s, Graydon Carter has just announced that Vanity Fair’s Oscar party will instead take place at the new It place to be, the Sunset Tower, Jennifer Aniston’s favourite place to have dinner.

Adrien Brody brought his Elsa Pataky with him last night to the Hollywood premiere of Cadillac Records. She’s the one who inspired him to buy that fake castle, remember? By the way, did you know that photo shoot originally printed in Spain and it was 40+ pages??? Of him in a bathtub reading a script with NO WATER IN IT? And leaning up against a tractor with his EYES CLOSED? Ugh. Full Story
Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman – she’s like the Ali Lohan of 40 year olds. 40 going on 70. Right?

The cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone featuring, who else?, Britney Spears, keeping the record alive: bare abs every time. But take a closer look at that nasty fake thumbnail. Really?

Am attaching a couple of images from inside the magazine – as you can see, especially from the side angle, that body really is the tightest it’s been in forever. Full Story

As for Twilight – needless to say, it was a crazy opening box office. So crazy that they’ve confirmed they will go ahead with the sequel, hopefully with a bigger budget for better effects. More fangirl cheese on the way. Yay? Nay?
Monday – am blogging all day. Check back often.
Yours in gossip,
The real test is next weekend. Because everyone who desperately needed to see Twilight would have seen it already. So can its momentum be sustained?

Out and about in New York today. Little Sci’s little dress is, as always, the cutest. But her mother… I don’t know what that is. Like, plaid might be all the rage but in this form? But plaid in prairie styles? With boots in the winter and not on the beach? And you know she CARES about style. Full Story
