Drew Barrymore has scored yet another Vogue cover. And why not? Drew sells well. Anna Wintour loves Drew Barrymore. So here it is – here’s the latest Drew looking lovely on the March issue. Dewy, fresh faced…and even a little frozen? But in a good way, non? In a “she will never age for us” kinda way which is almost reassuring: that the last 25 years seem so much softer mirrored back in her face. Full Story

It will be Cruz Beckham who inherits his parents’ love of the spotlight! But of course it will be Cruz. Cruz after all was conceived as an answer to the public infidelity – a message to the world: We Are the Beckhams. We Will Survive. As such, thick skin and attention seeking was programmed into Cruz’s DNA, the first inklings of which were presented to an audience of thousands at Madison Square Garden last night. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Oscars in less than a week – have you filled out your ballot? Deadline for the Annual Contest sponsored by Mercedes-Benz is Thursday night. And a Miu Miu bag is on the line! Click here to enter.

Revival of the Oscars means everyone is busy recovering from plastic surgery and human growth hormone injections. Hollywood is back to normal – yay!

It’s Monday, am blogging all day with quick reading breaks - am having a full blown addictive love affair with a new book. Check back often!

Yours in gossip,

To be shirtless, of course. Matthew McConaughey – his new ad for Dolce & Gabbana has just hit YouTube…so cheeseball you will lose your sh*t. And at the very end, at the very end of course he had to lose his shirt in living colour, showing off a chest so orange it’s practically magenta! His blood vessels are being strangled!

And his turned out feet. This of course is maybe gaybe Matthew Broderick, husband of Sarah Jessica Parker, out with the dog in matching trousers. I had a boss who walked like this, waving a pinky in the air with spittle collecting at the corner of his mouth and he had a thing for young Asian boys. We called him a Rice Queen. Full Story

David Beckham – who cares if he’s a cheater? He’s hot and romantic and generous with his money… so what if he shags a nanny or a Spanish skank now and again? It’s the cosmetics of a marriage that matter the most, non? Of course it is. It’s the cosmetics of any situation that Mrs Beckham lives for. Full Story

The #1 movie at the box office this weekend was Jumper, earning just over $27 million, securing a first place finish for Hayden Christensen and effectively saving his career. Another wonderful example that trading on love pays off personally and professionally, especially when love is so damn cute. And Hayden and Rachel are undeniably cute together. Full Story
