To post pics of Robert Downey Jr? No reason necessary. Except that he’s the reigning king of the box office and quivers the loins. This is RDJ at Kimmel yesterday signing autographs for fans. As you already know, Iron Man killed it at the box office last weekend and is primed for a repeat performance, going head to head against Speed Racer which has been plagued by low public awareness.

Yesterday was George Clooney’s birthday. He went out for dinner with friends like Ellen Barkin and Karen Duffy and also, of course, Sarah Larson. Not sure if that’s a tear in her dress or a strategically placed little gap. Curiously enough, as mentioned earlier, Cindy Crawford was in town. Full Story
See how she rises? Here’s Sarah Larson yesterday in New York without George Clooney posing with Giorgio Armani as he receives the Couture Council’s Global Fashion Leadership Award. She’s a good looking girl but let’s be honest… on model standards, it’s not like she’s Gisele, or Natalia, or Sasha, or Coco, or Stam. Full Story
Gwyneth Paltrow’s appearance on Jonathan Ross aired in the UK on Friday and by all accounts she was charming and endearing. She even had a pint! Gwynnie said she’s no longer on a macrobiotic diet and likes to indulge in fish and chips and ice cream and beer. She also discussed the big scandal surrounding the naming of Apple and proposed sh-tHouse as an alternative. Full Story
Happy Birthday Laura from your bestie Brenna. Sending you my very best hopes that it’ll happen soon. And when it does… let me know! Happy 23rd Birthday Emily – you’ve been the most supportive Maid of Honour to your sister Kristiina! Happy Birthday Rhonda G! Will definitely hit you up for that drink if I’m in Victoria! As for Jeff Goldblum… I had a moment with him on a red carpet once two years ago. Full Story
It’s my 2nd year in a row and there is nothing…NOTHING… like the Costume Institute Gala. On the sheer number of celebrities, their arrivals so fast and furious you need a swivel neck to make sure you catch them all. Inevitably you miss a few interviews because you’re tied up with someone else. And many of them don’t feel like stopping for every outlet. But what they say really doesn’t matter. It’s what they wear, how they move, who they’re with, and the little dramas on the carpet.
Oh there was drama.
Nothing more dramatic than the arrival of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Or should I say KatE? Yes. He presented her. I almost passed out. Yes, Blair actually called KatE a beard on Gossip Girl.
BLAIR MAKES MY LIFE.
But you know what else made my life? This year it was Tom Ford that blew me off. It’s like you’ve never truly lived until he’s made you feel completely insignificant in his divine presence.
All the details coming up. It’ll be a long column today so scroll down and click on VIEW MORE ARTICLES to make sure you don’t miss a post. And don’t forget to watch eTalk tonight for the coverage.
Tuesday – am online all day. Check back often! And please excuse typos. Am bleary eyed and blogging.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Talked to Ms Wintour. I’ve officially died.
PPS. The best, best, best Rossum … EVER!!!
PPPS. Speaking of hurling out some Rossum… brace yourselves. George Clooney is totally in love with Sarah Larson.
PPPPS. Posh looked like sh*t!
They caused a commotion last night that could only be rivalled by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Needless to say, Tom and KatE were the last to arrive. Quick tangent: Blake Lively came just before them. Like… Blake Lively? Sit DOWN Blake Lively! Katie’s dress up close was spectacular. Entirely beaded, the colour just popped, and those shoes.

David fixed up that mess on his face and he was back to his quivering standard. Victoria on the other hand… Victoria was a disaster. It was the worst she’s looked in a long, long time. It was atrocious. Like gasp-inducing atrocity. Like if he was contemplating cheating again, last night would have been his final push. Full Story
Some things you have to see to believe. Lara and I lost our sh*t last year over Bee Schaeffer and Anna Wintour only to get completely undressed by the divine Ms W. This year it was a different story. But first… Bee was wearing this over-the-top Nina Ricci. She had wanted it to be green a la Poison Ivy but Olivier Theyskens was feeling more purple. Full Story
A favourite moment for sure. Stella McCartney and Kate Moss –like two girls in high school caught up in their own inside joke. Held hands virtually the whole time, giggling uncontrollably, laughing at other people, often not bothering to hide it… mostly it was Kate, of course. It was Kate acting like she was learning impaired and Stella the indulgent parent. Full Story
