No veins, much younger

Madonna’s ads for Louis Vuitton – she looks great. No bulging muscles, no veins, no close ups on those weird ass cheek bones… Steven Meisel shot this campaign and having worked with her before, clearly he knows how to draw out her best, giving us a softer, younger, beautiful Madge. Full Story

Holiday white wedgies!

The GMD and Little Sci were sighted yesterday in New York…and so were his white wedge sneakers – for extra, extra lift! How many pairs did he custom order? They’re always so new and fresh. You think he has a cobbler on permanent payroll? Someone who knows how to install the height trickery in every pair of new shoes? Like an official Scientologist Cobbler? I am totally convinced… As for Little Sci – so many of you emailed yesterday after seeing Granny Freeze holding her Sunday, remarking that it’s just like how Tom Cruise holds his daughter too… like total novices. Full Story

Boozy boys’ night

George Clooney was in London last night. Matt Damon is in London too. They hooked up for dinner at Nobu – evidently George pounded his way through dinner because he already looked rather unsteady as he was leaving. But that was just the beginning. Next he headed for Whisky Mist, calling it his “club crawl”…. Full Story

Finally Aguilera

Been complaining about Christina Aguilera and her repeat medley-ing from the VMAs and then at the AMAs…but last night, last night she made up for it all. A wickedly restrained performance at the Grammy nomination show with no freaky sideshow gimmicks, no dancing thank God, no copycat Lady Gaga styles, just straight up singing, quality singing with a limited amount of vocal gymnastics… It was heaven. Full Story

Is this your Kate?

Kate Winslet with Ralph Fiennes last night at the NY premiere of The Reader. Of course she’s gorgeous. Of course she’s kickin’ it in that Herve Leger. But this … is this your Kate? This overtanned, overblonde Real Housewife of Some County? Maybe it’s just me. Anyway, Kate is officially kicking off her double Oscar run – entered into contention in the Best Supporting Actress category for The Reader and the Best Actress Category for Revolutionary Road which has been building upon very positive early praise for both her and Leo and the flow of the film as a whole. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Even her ex husband is helping her out. Kevin Federline’s exclusive with People was released this morning while she celebrated her 27th birthday in New York last night. More on that later. More on Sean Avery too…although writing about him is like fulfilling his greatest dream. He is not unhappy today…trust. In fact, he’s probably happier today than he’s ever been. That everyone is talking about him, that everyone knows him, that he is the top headline… he is the male disease equivalent of Paris Ebola Hilton.

Wednesday – new posts all day and please scroll down, get caught up on late articles from yesterday.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Pippy doesn’t walk?

My husband and I, we are golf purists. And he’s too cheap to pay for a cart. But mostly we walk the course because that’s what golf is. You hit and hit and hit, and you walk, with your bag on your back, and you’re tired, and you don’t turn your hips because you’re tired, because you’ve been walking for hours, and the shots start to suffer, and if you come in with a good score having overcome all those elements, truly you can play the game. Full Story

Dudes and open-mouth posing

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tonight in London for the Twilight UK premiere. The mayhem wasn’t exactly as dialed up as it was in America. Twilight fever is still catching on. Sigh. Kristen’s dress… I love… so much. Whoever’s styling her for these events should work with Taupey Garner. Full Story

SI honours my summer crush

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 3, 2008 13:26:12 December 3, 2008 13:26:12

It was an easy choice: Michael Phelps has been named Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year. And while I’m no longer in love with him, I can certainly still appreciate his body in Beijing. Full Story

No work, more parties

As I mentioned earlier in the Kristen Stewart post, am told that Lindsay Lohan was supposedly quite desperate for the Joan Jett part that Kristen has just confirmed. In other words, still no roles for Lilo. Which means more paid parties with Samantha Ronson. The two went shopping the other day at Dior, then this morning, Lilo was spotted at LAX, presumably catching a flight to Toronto where Sam is booked to DJ at The Courthouse tonight. Full Story
