WeΓÇÖre arguing about a lot today. But I doubt weΓÇÖre arguing about this, right? There was no one worse than this. Kate Upton apparently went to Anna Wintour and asked for a ticket, offering to pay her own way in. I hate to say it...but you can tell.They say there model classes, as Sophia Neophitou infamously declared Full Story

Beautiful girls, both. And willing to experiment. The results arenΓÇÖt necessarily perfect but there is imagination here, there is spark, and if this is any indication, thereΓÇÖs much to look forward to in Kristen StewartΓÇÖs collaboration with Balenciaga. LOVE the tank heΓÇÖs put her in on top but IΓÇÖm just not sure this particular styling isnΓÇÖt better suited to a premiere rather than a gala. Full Story

Succeeding where Cameron Diaz couldnΓÇÖt...Rihanna doesnΓÇÖt get enough credit for how fashionably astute she is. You expect her to show up here with horns or vagina-riding a surfboard, some kind of crazy, and instead she lets Tom Ford do exactly what Tom Ford does best. Tom Ford owned the Oscars with a white cape for Gwyneth Paltrow. Full Story

Writing ΓÇ£ribs & breastsΓÇ¥ just made me hungry. Have been eating clean for days. God I would love a rib. Just one rib.Gwyneth Paltrow gave us ribs last night at the Met Gala with a serving of side breast. I donΓÇÖt actually mind the side breast. ThatΓÇÖs G, you know? G can flaunt a side breast without looking cheap. Full Story

I honestly donΓÇÖt know why this fringe is still in play. It covers everything. ThereΓÇÖs nothing left to see. Some faces... sure. Some faces have some things to hide. I wish I could hide my nose, my droopy eyelid, and the part of my jaw that dips lower on one side than the other. Jessica Biel doesnΓÇÖt have these problems. Full Story

Did Cameron stay close to Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce last night? Did they keep a 3 table separation, minimum, between Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel?Cammie brought her game face though, didnΓÇÖt she? Look at her face. She looks great in the face. Prettier and fresher than sheΓÇÖs looked in a long time. Full Story

IΓÇÖm not a fringe fan. ThatΓÇÖs partly feng shui and, well, look at Jessica Biel. WeΓÇÖll get to her in a minute. If thereΓÇÖs one person who can do a fringe though, itΓÇÖs Marion Cotillard. The difference?Hers is super choppy and short. With hers you can still see all of her face. That face! I suppose that face works with whatever hair you give it. Full Story

Have you read Nicole KraussΓÇÖs The History Of Love? ItΓÇÖs such a beautiful, devastating book, you really should if you havenΓÇÖt already. Anyway, thereΓÇÖs a part near the beginning as weΓÇÖre being introduced to old Leo Gursky, who seems to finding ways to put off death by redirecting pain to different parts of his body, so as not to burden the already weak parts. Full Story

Big Ass Met Train: Beyonce

They probably had to hire extra staff at the venue to move her around and up and down in this Givenchy. I suppose if thereΓÇÖs anyone who can maneuver her way around a dress...YouΓÇÖve seen Beyonce on tour right? I have been bitching about feathers all day. Why stop here? Get over the feathers already. Full Story

Pretty sure weΓÇÖre spitting at each other we are fighting so hard over this one.YouΓÇÖre all like what the f-ck, right? But go back to the beginning for the word on boring. Boring is much worse than ugly. And besides, is it ugly? Really? I think itΓÇÖs actually rather pretty. Like the prints at Liberty Full Story

I donΓÇÖt give a sh-t about Tim Tebow and the Jets are a joke for signing him but I needed to report something and get it out of the way so this is why heΓÇÖs here. You know that new show The Choice? Click here for a refresher. IΓÇÖve been hearing rumours all over the place that heΓÇÖs one of the four bachelors. Full Story
