A new GOOP collaboration: monogrammed underwear with Cheek Frill. If you’ve been reading this site for a while, you know I love a monogram. I monogram the sh-t out of my sh-t. Pyjamas, towels, notebooks, anything that can be monogrammed, I’ll monogram it. But I don’t wear underwear. Full Story
The Victoria Beckham flagship on Dover Street in London opened today. I’ve attached some photos.

And I love that piece of green wall in one of the dressing rooms that she’s posing against. Full Story

It's my birthday tomorrow. And look at my gift to you! New photos of Benedict Cumberbatch on set of the BBC2 production of The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses. Sarah always talks about his voice.

Lindsay Lohan's doing Speed-the-Plow in London. The production is currently in previews. Last night, theatre-goers had an opportunity to see her perform. There was some laughing. Some of the lines are too close. Some of the lines are too true. But the laughing also had to do with the fact that she had to be prompted. Full Story

One of the earliest rumours about the True Detective Season 2 casting was that Ellen Page and Kate Mara would replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. I was excited about that.
