The Train of the Night

Lucy Liu came with Zac Posen, as many celebrities arrived on the arm of the designers who dressed them. You can see him adjusting her train here - the most spectacular train, like, ever. Again, the images don’t capture it adequately. I mean the detail of every ruffle, each piece was like an individual handcrafted flower…so magnificent, like art on a body, and the way it clung to every inch of her - tonight she was the Asian of the Night. Full Story

A For Effort

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 8, 2007 00:00:00 May 8, 2007 00:00:00

The hardcore posing I wrote about earlier? The inordinate amount of effort and strain that goes into creating a perfect red carpet photo? Christina Ricci made that happen last night. But while it wasn’t easy and she certainly worked her muscles off, thrusting that chin forward, cocking her hips just so, the results paid off – tonight she was breathtaking. Full Story

Honour of a Lifetime

When celebrities arrive, hundreds of photographers and reporters start shouting their names. “Anna! Anna! Over here!” My producer Lara was standing on a riser wrangling interviews. We were beside ourselves over Anna Wintour and her daughter Bee Shaffer. Anna has the body of a 12 year old – she is exquisite. Full Story

The Gala, the Gossip, the Fashion

The theme was honouring Poiret – the 20s are back, metallic is in full rage. Some did it well, others threw up all over themselves. But as suggested by my producer the lovely Lara, I’d be remiss if I didn’t describe what we’ve now dubbed Anatomy of a Red Carpet. Because seeing the photos is one thing, but watching how they achieve the photos is more fascinating that you can imagine. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Paris to prison and Lilo drugging caught on tape… both on the same weekend??? The Gossip Goddess is a generous bitch. More on that later…
Bad news: am traveling this week, first to NYC Sunday night on the red eye, then to Edmonton midweek, will be posting on the fly.

Good news: am on assignment with eTalk covering the Costume Institute Gala on Monday night at the Met!!! The Costume Institute Gala is The.Most.Fashionable event of the year, with the frosty Anna Wintour presiding and the incomparable Cate Blanchett co-chairing… seeing Cate living and breathing twice in the same year? I am overcome.

Other expected attendees include: Salma Hayek’s baby daddy which means she could be there clashing with La Lopez and Marc, Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, my Kiki, John Legend, Liv Tyler, Gisele Bundchen, Scarlett Johansson, Lucy Liu, Julianne Moore (red heaven!), and Lindsay Lohan if she’s brave enough to wipe the coke off her face and show up.

Will have all smutty details for you Monday night.

New articles between flights, check back often for fresh updates.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. From my girl Kathy in Florida where Christina Aguilera performed on Saturday night: when bantering with the audience, Xtina promised a great show, promised to sing her heart out, and said she would not "pull a Britney on you!" Hee.

PPS. Lime green and pink – was the Queen’s hat at the Derby delicious or what?

PPPS. Am a bitch of my word. As you can see, there is movement on the Freebie Five. Rocky Delgadillo is the new #1…

Prison Bitch… Please

Dragging that dog around only when it’s convenient – as a dog owner, this just might be her most heinous crime yet. I mean really… Really… While shopping, while the pappies are hounding her left right and centre, in the middle of a media sh-tstorm, in the middle of a clothing boutique no less, how much comfort can this hag really be getting from her Tink exactly at this moment? Pray Goddess some bull dyke puts a collar on this bitch behind bars and drags her around like a sex gimp. Full Story

A New Fortress

New home for the GMD and his RoboBride. The cost? Only $35 million. Katie’s new prison home is in Beverly Hills, seven bedrooms, nine bath, 1.3 acres, with – of course – a tennis court and a pool. Turns out the Cruise compound up to this point has only been a rental. So now with a more permanent residence with his permanent wife, Tom is said to be anxious to give Little Sci a little sibling. Full Story

Imperfect Perfect

Am sitting at Pearson airport with my producer Lara. As she says, it’s all about cutting the jeans into shorts just so…with the pocket sticking out below the hem. Here’s Rachel Bilson with chipped nails and a couple spots and the best mini red Chanel looking perfect imperfect – sometimes non polished is better than flawless, non? Full Story

Marrying Random

I like this girl…she is a doll. Have met Brittany Murphy twice, both times she was a doll, if not a little crazy. Especially last year at a Toronto Film Festival afterparty drunk off her tree. Still…she is lovely. Lovely and polite and not Jessica Alba. But she does have an engagement problem. Full Story

It’s Always the Shoes

Cameron Diaz – always always the best footwear. And the premiere of Shrek The Third was no exception. Pink dress, metallic pumps – love, love, love. She looks divine, non? And well timed too. Because Pip was there and you bet your boob job she wanted it bad. To be breathtaking. To turn heads. Full Story

Man-Purse vs Injections

Two men, not so tough call. First - Jared Leto a week ago at the Australia VMAs. As I said at the time, Jared worked the straight iron and appears to have taken over from Kate Bosworth in emaciation. I’m told from Aussie gossips that among all the celebrities in attendance including Nicole Richie, Good Charlotte, and Fergie it was Jared Leto and 30 Seconds to Mars who were the most demanding, the most outrageous divas. Full Story
