Alone with Mr Armani

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

Apple or Sh*tHouse?

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

Dear Gossips,

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.


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!

The Presentation in Combination

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. Full Story

Hot Becks, Old Posh

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

Being Bee’s Bitch

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 6, 2008 10:46:00 May 6, 2008 10:46:00

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

Stella and Snarly Kate

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 6, 2008 10:36:25 May 6, 2008 10:36:25

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

And God Created Them

These two are obscene. So obscenely goodlooking they need a new word. A new word to describe their complete and total gorgessity domination. It is SO unfair! Watching them paw at each other is even worse. They stood there on the landing, basking in their own beauty, quite obviously ridiculously in love with each other and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Full Story

How Sarah Succeeded…

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 6, 2008 10:07:57 May 6, 2008 10:07:57

Where so many others failed. It’s an undeniable truth: Sarah Larson has secured George Clooney. As secure as George Clooney can be secured. Said it before, will say it again: this girl knows how to play. This girl knows not to over-ask. She knows not to over-reach. She will never expect more than what she was made for – it’s a winning formula more of those tv girls should start following. Full Story

Josh & Diane at the Met

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 6, 2008 10:04:00 May 6, 2008 10:04:00

Without question, Joshua Jackson was the most stylish, the most dashing, the hottest dude at the Costume Institute Gala, period, the end. Suddenly Pacey has turned into a fashion boy. Yum. He came of course with Diane Kruger who looked lovely in silver with pink shoes and pink lips. They held hands half way up the stairs and then split up for interviews. Full Story
