It’s Haute Couture Week in Paris. Cate Blanchett and Katie Holmes were front row, alongside Roberta Armani today at the Giorgio Armani Prive presentation. As you know, Cate has long enjoyed a close friendship with Mr Armani. And of course Mr Armani designed KatE’s wedding dress. So Cate flew in from Australia where she’s been spending most of her time these days to support the designer. And KatE flew in from Miami where she spent the weekend with her husband Tom Cruise to celebrate the Fourth and also his birthday. 

Yesterday, courtesy of Connor Cruise, we enjoyed these photos of him trying to avoid eyeballing some tits on the beach. Today Tom himself is following up that gold with some of his own. Or, rather, it’s his hand. 

Maybe it’s just me, but these shots of Katie, saying goodbye to Tom before heading to Paris, are cracking me up. It’s only his arm! Like he’s some kind of arms dealer. Or Greta Garbo. A blessing from the SUV. And look how grateful and happy she is too. Because she feels truly fortunate to receive his absolution for daring to go to a fashion show? Or is it relief to be away for a few days? 

Whatever. I don’t question anymore. It’s been 6 years that they’ve been together, almost 5 since they were married. If we’re going to found out anything, it won’t be for another 4 years.
