“I didn’t know who he was, since I was too young for ‘Beverly Hills 90210.’ But the First time I saw him, I got butterflies. And the first time he casually touched me? There was so much electricity.”
– Megan Fox is not afraid to point out the 13-year age difference between her and her husband, Brian Austin Green. But I just want to point out that, ahem, with “90210″ airing in reruns on SoapNet from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. every week day (not to mention Breakfast In Bed on the weekends!), there is no excuse for not being familiar with Green’s acting prowess and David Silver’s smooth moves.

Is it just me, or was the beauty for this year’s Oscars kind of a bore? The ladies looked lovely as always, but for the life of me I couldn’t pick out a makeup look that really wowed. Maybe it’s because some of the real stunners, the young actresses who can afford to dare to stand out from the pack, skipped the ceremony entirely and made their way over to the Vanity Fair party a few hours early instead. Basically every time Elizabeth Olsen, who’s quickly becoming my favorite Olsen, leaves the house and is photographed, I subsequently covet to death whatever makeup she’s wearing — she always looks fresh-faced and pretty, never overdone. Predictably the Vanity Fair fête was no exception, but it was her appearance the night before at the Independent Spirit Awards that really stuck with me: the rose gold eyeshadow she sported is well on its way to becoming a major trend. The girls in Glamour‘s beauty department were one step ahead of me in identifying the frequency with which the gorgeously gilded shade has been worn. Let me tell you, I’ll take anything rose gold without question, but I’m really in love with it when swiped on lids. Here are the products you can use to get this celeb-approved look.
Damn, that girl can keep a secret: Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are married, the couple’s jeweler has confirmed to Us Weekly. The pair had tongues wagging at the Ocars on Sunday night when they were both spotted wearing rings. Now jeweler Jaime Wolf has confirmed the happy couple was wearing wedding bands made of recycled platinum and conflict-free diamonds. That’s very Natalie, isn’t it? (Her engagement ring was vegan, too!) Unfortunately, there’s no other deets on where, when or what she wore, because Nat’s rep and manager have declined to comment. We’re bummed to be kept in the dark, but impressed they were able to marry without anyone knowing! [Us Weekly]
Natalie Portman isn’t the only celeb who’s gotten hitched in secret. We’ve rounded up a slew of other hush-hush celebrity marriages to which we also weren’t invited.
“I never sit in judgment. Lindsay Lohan and I have more in common than people think. We’ve all done things we shouldn’t. It is just that I did stuff at college when nobody knew about it, so I’m not a saint. I wasted time doing self-destructive things. I found out you can only dance on so many table tops. I got all that out of my system and I am healthy and grounded.”
– Reason #412 why I love Anne Hathaway: she is honest about how her squeaky-clean “good girl” image is just that — an image. It’s true that everyone experiments when they’re young, but child stars like Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus have to do it in the public eye. Although Anne is being pretty gracious here … something tells me that she and Lindsay have nothing in common. [The Sun UK]
Lady Sybil Crawley on “Downton Abbey” is my new girl crush and not just because she’s a rabblerousing feminist. The actress who plays Sybil, named Jessica Brown Findlay, is a jaw-droppingly lovely “English rose,” as they say. Jewelry designer Dominic Jones must agree, because he’s hired Jessica to appear in ads for his new jewelry line. I’m not going to pretend to like her makeup style here — it evokes Angelina Jolie from the Billy Bob days, or maybe any Helena Bonham Carter movie — but, hey, the jewelry looks pretty! [Styleite]
Angelina Jolie, despite the fact that she was not a nominee, was the talk of the Academy Awards. There was the whole Leg Thrusting Debacle — the actress was quite dramatic about using the high slit on her dress to display her right leg — but the blogosphere was also exploding with comments and questions about her weight. Namely, that she looked “gaunt,” “too skinny,” and “shrinking,” with many crowing that she should “eat a cheeseburger” and “put a lil’ more meat on those bones.”
I will admit to being one of those people who commented on her being too thin. I’ve been thinking about that reaction though, and am disappointed in myself for snarking on her weight. Keep reading »
