Dear Gossips,

The Met Gala did not disappoint – on drama, on style, on ass…

And for almost 20 minutes there it turned into Jessica Biel’s debutante ball – WTF?

There is no doubt: we will disagree. Many times we will disagree. Fashion is an intense conversation. Please do send your thoughts, can’t wait to debate. But a word if you will: it’s called the Costume Institute Gala. It’s not your office Christmas party, it’s not even the Oscars. It’s not what YOU would wear. On this night, with this crowd, with a gun to your head, some would say it’s actually better to be ugly and original than pretty but boring. Ready?

Today will be article and photo heavy. Posts will spill over to the next page. If you’re visiting the site late in the day, please scroll down and click on VIEW MORE ARTICLES to catch each one. They’ll be coming quickly followed by other non-Met related gossip including More Twilight/New Moon photos and set scoop.

It’s Tuesday. Blogging all day. Refresh it!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

The purple is back

Chuck’s purple was missing for a few. It was back last night. And as Michelle noted, some sh-t went down. Not the most well-acted episode, but great escapist fun. Group plotting against one thieving bitch with impossible resources. Please! We all dreamed of a similar takedown in high school. And of course the best part, the heart and soul of this show – Blair and Chuck and their endless game of Russian Love Roulette. Full Story

I’ll watch with you…

But you’re probably not watching alone. I know this because I saw photos of you the other day with an attractive girl, holding hands but separating when you realised you were being papped. This troubles you but you are papped so infrequently, I cannot honestly say that I’m sorry about seeing the pictures. Full Story

Young love in the rain

Marcus’s best friend Kona comes over every day and they hang out. Sometimes they sleep on the bed. Sometimes they grunt at each other and stay in separate bedrooms. At 3pm, on the dot, like clockwork, they present themselves outside my husband’s office and not very respectfully demand that it’s time for ballchasers. Full Story

Here they come

The Volturi. In Vancouver. Here are Michael Sheen and Jamie Campbell Bower arriving yesterday for New Moon. For those of you who are not familiar, Michael Sheen is the father of Kate Beckinsale’s daughter. It’s widely believed she left him for Len Wiseman during the filming of Underworld. Full Story

OK that’s a wrap on the Met Gala. Much more gossip to come. Hose yourselves down Twi-hards…new photos are coming. After these words from my friends:

Even this is more attractive than Tori Spelling (Dlisted)

Oh yeah baby Lyla! (Hollywood Tuna)

Victoria Beckham: see through and a PUH (Just Jared)

Reese and Jakey Roman Romance! (Pop Sugar)

Who’s racing Lilo to rehab? (Drunken Stepfather site NSFW)

Unlike Madge, her accent is real! (INO)

Cam single? Shelfy panics! (Cele|bitchy)

Here comes the Fox assault (Popoholic)

Guy Ritchie is like John Travolta? (Holy Moly)

Nip slips aren’t age-ist (The Superficial)

Shelfy the bride

Who got married yesterday? You would think it was Shelf Ass. It was her special day. Let me explain. At every photo agency database it was pretty much the same – two women occupied more pages and image space than any others. The first… Madonna. Obviously. The second. Jessica f-cking Biel. Full Story

Posehard pose-off!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 10:58:15 May 5, 2009 10:58:15

When Victoria Beckham met Renee Zellweger…who posed the hardest? Who posed so hard she need hip replacement surgery? Maybe we need a new poll. Ok, f-ck the Claudia vs Heidi poll. Let’s pit Posh and SnapFace head to head. Big surprise. Snappy’s wearing a strapless dress. It’s the best way to show off some back bones. Full Story

This black dress

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 10:30:00 May 5, 2009 10:30:00

Is f-cking exquisite. It’s Versace. Thematically similar to Shelfy’s dress (more on that later) only far superior. And of course on someone who can wear it. Never was pro-Claudia back in the day. Christy and Linda and Yasmine Ghauri, they did more for me especially on the runway. Over the years though she’s grown on me a little. Full Story

Even her sister can’t stand her

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 10:15:08 May 5, 2009 10:15:08

Interrupting the Met series for a quick Meltdown Update and Photo Assumption. What’s Lindsay Lohan up to? Oh she hit up some launch last night in LA with her sister. Wonder if she tried for an invitation to the Gala. We saw her 2 years ago, almost the last to arrive, pretending like she belonged. Full Story

It’s my IT band

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 5, 2009 10:05:51 May 5, 2009 10:05:51

My ass has been aching for weeks. It’s my IT band. Even in a sitting position it’s cramping now. And when I drive. And especially when I sleep. Also, I have chronic neck and shoulder pain. I’m telling you this because I just popped in for quick physio. Physio makes me sleepy and slow. Full Story
