Dear Gossips,

Iman in person does not disappoint. As Duana described, it’s like all her parts taken individually seem like they can’t possibly work together, but somehow they do and the result is total magnificence. Yesterday was Project Runway Canada at Fashion Week. I was sitting across from her, it was an effort to pay attention to the collections. Iman is watchable for hours. Hours. And her reactions, her reactions are even better live.

Did I throw myself at her feet and beg to be her servant? No. Why? Because 100 other people beat me there as soon as the lights went up.

Also…

Am now also obsessed with Rita Silvan, Editor in Chief of Elle Canada. Even more elegant in person with a hint of bitch and a dash of condescension. Love. Never mind talking to her, was too afraid to get near her. This is always a good sign.

As for the designers and the clothes, will not spoil it for you. Suffice to say, there shouldn’t be any doubt about the winner.

I’m telling you, if you are a fan of the Heidi Klum version, it’s nothing compared to Project Runway Canada. Trust. Click here to start from the beginning.

It’s finally Friday. Almost over. New articles all day between shoots. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Smack no kids is not Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend, not Sandra Bullock and Jesse James.

PPS. Photos attached from the Heart Truth Red Dress event the other night. Adored my dress. Evan Biddell made me what he called a “Future Space Girl” dress. Hair too.

Friday Night Women’s Health

Don’t you love starting your weekend with Taylor Kitsch? Here he is in Women’s Health. Delicious. Like him in stripes…you? When asked about what he has in common with Riggins, TK said: There are definitely pieces of me in him. When I was 16 or 17, I was closed in like him--but I didn't have as many girls at my fingertips. Full Story

Posh expansion

In this shot she looks almost athletic, one of the few celebrities who need photoshop for ADDING size, not reducing it, here’s another slide from Victoria Beckham’s Armani underwear campaign. It’s not like she works out… Actually reminds me of Gisele’s body. Maybe they used Gisele’s body? Anyway, Posh went out for dinner to Nobu last night with Katie Holmes in Hollywood. Full Story

Cam foils

Celebrities… just like us! Or so they say. Cameron Diaz went to have her highlights touched up on Wednesday in LA. While in the chair she checked her blackberry obsessively. Michelle said last night at dinner: blackberry is the adult security blanket. Totally. At fashion week, whenever there’s nothing to do, or there’s someone who can’t find a friend, or there’s a lull in the conversation, they all whip them out, send a text, check the hockey scores, twitter, whatever… Cam is supposedly prepping for a few upcoming photo shoots in support of her upcoming film My Sister’s Keeper based on Jodi Picoult’s book. Full Story

Striped Cougar

Courteney Cox on the set of her upcoming new tv series Cougar Town in stripes, with toned arms and legs, and her face freshly touched up for yet another attempt at a hit show. But the hair… The hair is perfect cougar hair. No matter the writing, at least the styling, the styling totally works. Full Story

JLo Love Shame

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 20, 2009 08:08:19 March 20, 2009 08:08:19

This is Chris Judd out and about last night in LA…remember him? He was married to Jennifer Lopez before she left him and took up with Ben Affleck five minutes later. You will note, her in between times are always very short… JLo is never single for very long. But seeing Chris Judd, it reminds me – this is one thing I love about her: Jennifer Lopez has super Love Shame. Full Story

Seth Rogen > Lindsay Lohan

Sit DOWN Spray Tan! Lindsay Lohan in the new issue of Nylon looking cranked out and rather conceited. This is a girl who loves herself. This is why she’s not sad smut. She worships the camera worshipping her: “I love doing photo shoots… I mean, if I could just sign with IMG and do ad campaigns and model more, I’d do that… because that’s fun for me. Full Story

First day of Spring

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 20, 2009 07:14:15 March 20, 2009 07:14:15

Warm weather… it’s coming, right? Because we were treated to mild temperatures earlier in the week only to have it plunge below zero today. In time for the weekend. Boo. By contrast, it’s balmy in Los Angeles, as evidenced by Hilary Duff’s short shorts, pictured here yesterday at a casting call clutching a script. Full Story

Bella and Jacob by the beach

Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart were in Tofino, British Columbia yesterday – where Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were married but not at that resort – shooting around South Beach and the Wickaninnish Inn. More of that is happening today. Rachelle Lefevre is said to be around too. Full Story
