Dear Gossips,

Oscar weekend is finally here. And almost every celebrity too. Many are dashing to NY, some for a mere few hours like Kate Beckinsale, only to rush back to LA, not willing to miss a minute of the action. Obviously Kate Beckinsale. There are parties and events every night. She has a prom dress to wear every night.

As for my dress, it’s between two to be camera tested on Saturday during technical rehearsal. The first is the Greta Constantine attached. This would explain my search for a non-bride up style. The second is Andy The Anh. Don’t have a photo. It’s grey, strapped bustier-ish bodice, fitted tight to cocktail length just below the knee. Am thinking finger rolls in that case. Thoughts?

So we’re live on CTV and A Channel and Star! on Sunday – click here for the schedule in your area. Also, I’ll be live blogging the Oscars from the press room. Click here on Sunday to visit the live blog and yes, I hear you. Giv’er. My head shot is the ultimate balls, rights? I don’t know why I’m orange with white lips.

And finally, they’ve asked a few of us on the broadcast team to Twitter during the entire process, from live show to the press room and the parties, so here’s my Twitter page even though I’ve no idea how to use it. Please note it’ll be shut down by end of day Monday…

Enough shameless self promotion. You’re here for smut…

Friday – am blogging all day between shoots and rehearsals. Also blogging this weekend! Check back Saturday and of course late Sunday night.

Enjoy your Oscar parties! My favourite Oscar party idea is from Michel R whose friend “hands out dozens of those plastic golf practice balls so that people can throw them at the tv when they are annoyed with the person on screen.” In other words, everyone must throw at the same time when Shelf Ass Jessica Biel walks on stage.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Karmic Cuckold is not Julia Roberts although she’s rumoured to be one of the surprise presenters on Oscar night.

He’s not Karl…

But that doesn’t make him less amazing. Giorgio Armani. SO amazing. Mr Armani opened his store in New York this week. He commemorated the occasion by blogging, for the first time ever, with the NY Times. It’s the best, best, BEST way to end your week. I can hear him, I can see him waving his hand, blinking slowly, inhaling with impatience… sigh. Full Story

Happy 43

Today is Cindy Crawford’s birthday. Might explain why she was carrying a bottle of tequila to a friend’s place yesterday – there is much to celebrate. Superficially, I mean. Because when I’m 43 and I look like this, and I can afford to have a skilled medical professional helping me, I’d be slamming back the tequila too. Full Story

Mischa = Tori

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 20, 2009 12:48:57 February 20, 2009 12:48:57

It’s almost the same dress, non? Tori’s in green, Mischa’s in purple, although sure, Mischa Barton is better looking. But again, most people are, with the exception of Donatella Versace. This post however is not about the assness of KFed Jr’s wife. This post is about the assness of the girl who broke my arm. Full Story

Vintage Pattinson

Many of you lusty Robert Pattinson fans pounded my email yesterday needing more details, annoyed and insisting I should have been stalking him and not Grey Goose. This is crazy talk. But… I will try to make up for it. First – some of your pressing questions.Was the young aunt-ish looking woman a girlfriend? Any romantic vibes? Not the normal kind. Full Story

Maggie Grace last night at the Global Green pre-Oscar party – what a f-cking mess. Sateen + Jumpsuit = HORROR Then the winged liquid liner, at least that’s what it looks like. Should be illegal. This is something I am particularly sensitive about. Because as an Asian, so many old school makeup artists think this is what has to happen with our “exotic” eyes. Full Story

Ugly is forgettable?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 20, 2009 07:39:07 February 20, 2009 07:39:07

Since when? How do you forget this face…for all the wrong reasons? Not sure why Tori Spelling is at fashion week but she is because I guess they’ll let any riffraff in the door these days. So she pulls up at the Christian Siriano show last night but the security didn’t recognise her. Full Story

All our girls

All three, at the same event, looking gorgeous! Here they are Kate Winslet, my Marion Cotillard, and Freida Pinto last night at the US Ireland Alliance Pre-Oscar Gala Awards Ceremony. Cute story about Marion from a couple of months ago the first time met Kate. She was, like, overcome. Because she’s such a big fan. Full Story

Shelfy Straight to DVD

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 20, 2009 06:47:03 February 20, 2009 06:47:03

Why is Jessica Biel so desperate to have Justin Timberlake at her side on Oscar Sunday? Well, let’s see. She’s supposed to be a movie actor now but Easy Virtue still hasn’t hit theatres and the other movie she had in the can, Powder Blue – it’s apparently going straight to DVD Full Story

Of course she’s here

Sienna Miller arrived in LA yesterday afternoon and, what did you expect?, headed straight for a party, seen here at the Grey Goose event last night with Dev Patel. Are you worried? Our sweet young Dev corrupted by Sienna? He’s not married. She’s not interested. You shouldn’t worry. Full Story
