Front row at Vera Wang today – Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley, faces full of judgment. On normal people, these expressions could most certainly be interpreted as negative reviews. Given that these two only smile once a year, however, in this case it’s much more difficult to say. I will always have nightmares about Andre Leon Talley at the Oscars last February. Full Story
Angelina Jolie travelled to Iraq this week, risking her life to fight for the rights of displaced refugees. As you can see, she looks bunk. Super tired, super weary, battling through pregnancy sickness while trying saving the world. The most beautiful woman, arguably, in Hollywood during an interview with CNN waved off the makeup artist, appearing on international television – and you know this will get aired everywhere – to urge the global community to do what’s right by victims of war.

Gwen and Gavin in black and fuelling the baby bump obsession. Why do people lose their sh*t these days over baby bumps??? More intriguing is the Gwen/Madge connection. As you can see, Gwen and Gavin brought their brand to the Malawi event last night, though there have long been rumours that her Madgesty does not appreciate that Gwen is essentially the new Her. Full Story
Salma with her baby father and fiancé at last night’s Malawi event. Francois is the head of the company that overseas Gucci. Which means he wrote Madge’s cheque last night. But look at the engineering achievement of this dress. Salma’s tits, even pre-Valentina, were enormous. Full Story
Being crazy is one thing. Because if you’re cool and crazy, it’s all good. Cool can turn crazy into an artform – just ask Christopher Walken. But there is nothing, nothing, nothing worse in showbiz than being uncool. And Tom Cruise is uncool. Tom Cruise is SO uncool that he makes anyone who associates with him uncool too. Full Story
Most of you hate her snotty little face and her smut little attitude. It’s the way she looks at you, right? Because she is better than you. She is one of a few select women in the world who get first pass at the new Balenciaga bag half a year before anyone else. So of course she’s better than you, she’s better than everyone… don’t you know??? This is my Gwyneth last night in support of her BFF Madonna, radiant in pink, as fit as she’s ever been with long, taut, lean legs and hair that looks like it’s been trimmed… total gorgessity in her Oscar-winning colour. Full Story
Somehow Britney escaped from the psych ward yesterday – apparently a lawyer overruled the medical recommendation and let her go. As you probably know, she tore off immediately for Adnan and the paps. Why her parents were not holding vigil outside that hospital door, why Lynne wasn’t handcuffed to her child, how she managed to saunter outta there without her parents throwing themselves in her way is beyond me. Full Story
She brought Lola. Lola who is already 11 – can you believe she’s already 11? – and refreshingly actually still LOOKS 11, unlike Ali Lohan who only looked 11 when she was inside her Dina’s womb. And while Lola is clearly showing the unmistakable sign of little girl vanity, her mother appears to be succeeding in holding on to her youth. Full Story
Chinese New Year’s Eve and I miss my mother. She called me last night to remind me about the rituals, to let me know she’d posted my lucky money pockets, and not one word of criticism. In fact, it’s the only time of the year my mother gives her bitch a break, for fear of starting the upcoming lunar new year on an unlucky foot - an attitude so self serving it ends up being bitchy anyway.
My very best wishes to you and yours for a healthy and prosperous Year of the Rat, a year traditionally of new beginnings and maybe even new loves – nice AND naughty. Given that the rat is also associated with romance, word is 2008 also promises sexy time and scandal, hand in hand.
Translation: more smut!
Wednesday – cleaning all day, blogging all day, refresh refresh refresh! And scroll down for late articles you may have missed.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Thanks to the lovely ladies at Style Spy for the feature as Girl of the Week!
PPS. From Katie to Megan – congratulations on your “bejewelled state”!
PPPS. Ryan Gosling is not having problems finding good help. Nor Leo. And not Three Whiskers Orlando Bloom either. Coke isn’t Clooney’s thing and Elijah Wood is too easy.
