13 is the new 30

Brilliant Us Weekly comparison – on the left Lilo at 13. On the right her sister Ali at 13. Clearly times have changed. Should 13 year olds look this… experienced? The expression in those eyes, the wanton dip of her chin, the suggestive pout – how many years, even months, before the next Lohan trainwreck hits TMZ? I’m about to offend you, if you can’t handle, stop reading now. Full Story

Remember the best story from last week? George Clooney and Fabio throwing down at some restaurant because George’s bitch came out when he mistakenly believed Fab’s female friends who were seated at a table nearby were taking photos of him? The incident was a source of major Clooney DEquiveration and provided the most press Fabio’s received in years. Full Story

Blunt is Better

The ravishing Emily Blunt in UK In Style December issue hailed as Britain’s newest screen siren along with Keira Knightley. Yes yes, totally agree. Except Emily has thankfully exited her “black mood” phase and doesn’t walk around hating the world. Emily can currently be seen in The Jane Austen Book Club which has been overwhelmingly well received by the Washington Post, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times, and Roger Ebert. Full Story

Fringe Friends

Liv Tyler and Kate Moss last night with matching fringe in contrasting black and white attending the 7th on Sale Gala. Oddly enough, neither is particularly well dressed but Kate does look remarkably improved since ending her Crack Love, non? Stil… Crack Love is forever. Probably only a matter of time. Full Story

Keep It!

Yet another child star, only 18 but looks like she’s 30, and probably sleeping with a 30 year old co-star with the blessing of a stage mother molded after Dina Lohan – Hayden Panettiere is a DUI waiting to happen. Predictably she is also an actress AND a singer. Right. As you’ve seen, Hayden is revelling in her role as the latest “It” girl. Full Story

The Other Boleyn Girl: The Trailer

It was slated for a December release, at the height of awards contention, the junkets were actually scheduled for around right now…but then about a month ago, The Other Boleyn Girl disappeared off the circuit, yanked by the studio with no explanation, and slotted instead for a February release – no man’s land. Full Story

VS Homo Hotness

Damn Doogie!  Yes… Doogie. Doogie is HOT. Sigh. All gays are hot. I love hot gays. This hot gay needs a hag. Does he have a hag? And is that his boyfriend? I hope not. I’m thinking Doogie and Wentie Miller. Yum. I would watch, wouldn’t you? Splash Full Story

VS Orange, Bloated, and Bulging

I know you’re out there – the Gerard Butler fan club. I know he’s your quiveration. And while I’m not a beefcake girl myself, I can understand why he might set your loins afire. But dude… This is all kindsa wrong. Gerry at the Victoria’s Secret show last night – as you can see, as Bridget’s mother would say, he’s so orange he’s practically purple. Full Story

Lance Denies

Of course he does. Even though multiple sources in multiple New York papers saw the two of them making out, Lance Armstrong is backing away. Lance told Page Six: "Ashley Olsen and I are strictly friends. Full Story

The Spice Girls – Victoria’s Secret

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 16, 2007 07:08:29 November 16, 2007 07:08:29

Two songs, two outfits, and of course a change of clothes for the carpet – it’s not about the music, but it’s all about the Spice. So f*ck the British critics this morning who are calling it a disappointment. Since when were vocals part of the comeback criteria? Feast your eyes rather on the military themed ensembles for Stop and the custom Cavallis for Headlines (Friendship Never Ends), their new bland song that requires only posing and puckering, and also note what the girls chose for the press line before beginning the show. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Confession: I am stupid. SO stupid. To have waited this long to enjoy My So Called Life?


But almost better, I think. Because watching it in your 30s for the first time is better. Not that I ever doubted it was great, I just never bothered to confirm that it was great. And 17 years later, it is still great. 17 years later it still stands up.

Cracked open the box set yesterday on a rainy, bloated, blah evening – husband at the hockey game – me at home with Chinese take out…was the perfect setting. And the perfect pilot episode. So on the off chance you’ve been as stupid as me… don’t be.

Congratulations to the winners of the My So Called Life Collector’s Edition DVD set: Joanne C, Karolina K, Meghan L, Janelle B, and Sarah B. Also to Melissa D for winning the Miss Sixty fragrance.

And attention Patty R. Are you Patty R? Do you know Patty R? Your Gemini Swag Bag is waiting! Please get in touch or if you know Patty, please tell her to get in touch!

Thursday – live blogging, check back often.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Happy belated birthday to Erin W – you’ve been reading a long, long time. And you started the Facebook group too! Hope yesterday was fantastic. Thank you, love you, owe you.

PPS. Many of you wrote to ask about the Alice + Olivia dresses I wore during TIFF. Specifically the black sequined strip tank that ends in a bubble, also worn several times this season by Sienna Miller, and the white sparkly feather number earmarked for Colin Farrell but for a sudden rainstorm. Images attached.

Well here’s your chance if you’re looking for holiday party fashion. To accommodate extra stock for the Christmas rush, Kiss & Makeup is kicking off Christmas with a food drive and trunk sale this weekend only including fashions by Alice + Olivia, James Perse, Cynthia Vincent, and Eugenia Kim (best hats ever). Bring a can of food, get 10% off…bring 4 cans, get up to 40% off. It’s a sweet, sweet deal. And if you don’t live in Vancouver, call them. They will ship. I’m going Friday morning for a first crack before the hordes. I am prepared to fight!

PPPS. Mute Stones is not Nicole Kidman. Or Charlize Theron. Those two have won Oscars. But while Mute"s family and her husband may be decorated, she herself ...not so much.
