Just when I thought Cate Blanchett couldn’t get any cooler, she shows up at LAX in this slouchy menswear suit and thick glasses, looking freakin’ flawless. This is really making me rethink my go-to flying outfit of leggings, baggy sweatshirt, and a stress-induced zit. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Earlier this week, Victoria Beckham kindly put us all in our place by posting a photo of her dog Harry wearing one of her dresses. A dress that I definitely can’t afford. Harry was apparently being treated to a dress fitting because he suffered through getting his teeth cleaned. I wonder what Vicky does for David when he goes to the dentist. [Twitter]
A headline in the UK Sun that read “Curry In Surrey” informed me that Brad and Angelina spent almost $4,000 on curry and booze at a London restaurant. A source at the Mogul in Bagshot curry house in Surrey said“There were five friends and two of their bodyguards there and they ordered a mountain of food and booze. It might seem hard to believe that they ran up a bill of nearly £3,000 at a normal curry house but they are really generous and extravagant.”
Generous and extravagant indeed. We wonder if we had that much money if we would take our friends out for dinner. Maybe so. But for $4,000 worth of curry? Definitely not. I mean, Brangelina, you could have just donated it to us. We need new computers. Click through to see more ridiculously expensive items celebs have burned their money on.
Elizabeth Taylor has long been on our style inspiration radar, but her memory is more alive than ever now what with that trainwreck Lindsay Lohan depicting her in a très highbrow Lifetime film. The horror! Elizabeth (who actually loathed being called Liz) was, unlike Lindsay, shambolic in the best way possible, the hottest mess that ever lived. She was a genetic mutant born with double rows of eyelashes, a violet-eyed lush and lover who was famous for her roles, her romances, and her prevailing kindness. Let’s not forget her fashion influence: she helped to bring Valentino and Halston into demand, and when she passed away last year, her jewelry collection was rumored to be worth well over $150 million. They just don’t make movie stars like Elizabeth anymore. Keep reading »
Married for 2 years to The Office‘s John Krasinski, actress Emily Blunt tends to keep mum when it comes to their relationship. She explains why – and talks babies – in a new interview with Manhattan magazine.
“This is what I find difficult about talking about my marriage: It’s hard to sum up something that’s so vital and means everything to you in a sound bite. Do you know what I mean?” The 5-Year Engagement star asks. “All I can say is that it’s an effing blast. It’s just great, and I’m so happy.” Read more…
“I’ve stopped wearing makeup when I’m not working. For a while I thought I had dark circles and bad skin, and then I realized I was seeing myself that way because I didn’t recognize myself anymore without makeup. Now when I wear it, I think I look really weird!”
— Surprise, Leighton Meester is as far from her “Gossip Girl” character Blair Waldorf as humanly possible! This is so true — as someone who wears a full face of (admittedly light) makeup from when I wake up in the morning until I wash it off before bed, I’m sometimes appalled by my own foundation-free face because I’m so used to a false sense of perfection. I like to skip the spackle on the weekends so that I don’t forget what I look like. Leighton is on the cover of Lucky’s July issue, where she also talks about shopping for clothes at garage sales and thrift stores, and falling in love with everyone she meets all the time. A girl after my own heart in so many ways! [Just Jared]
