We have now entered day two of the prestigious Paris Haute Couture Week, the spark that lights the fuse of fashion weeks to follow. Yesterday was Atelier Versace (for the first time since 2004!), Alexis Mabille, Christian Dior, and Giambattista Valli, among others. This morning, not one, but two Chanel shows took place, followed by Giorgio Armani Privé and Givenchy later in the day. Of course, it’s my long-standing dream to attend just one of these breathtaking ceremonies, but for the time being I’m forced to spectate from the sidelines. Couture Week brings out some of the biggest and brightest names in street style, and I’ll be damned if they weren’t dressed to the nines. The biggest turnout comes from models, actresses, superstars, and socialites, who no doubt have the means to show up the girls actually on the runway, but they tend to skew fairly casual for these festivities. Here are my choice looks from the past two days; expect another feature covering the next two!

For an Italian Vanity Fair cover in 2010, she was photographed by Bruce Weber with her face essentially untouched by excessive studio makeup or Photoshopping. Yes, Marion went au naturel on a Vanity Fair cover and was no worse for it. That’s because she has what has to be the most flawless skin ever possessed by a human being. Keep reading »
“You know, when I eat three peas, I’m pregnant. When I visit a city, I’m buying a house. In the winter I separate, in the summer I marry. It’s been 15 years since I’ve been getting married every year. In addition, I have to answer all these rumors!”
— Vanessa Paradis gets the prize for the best “mind your own business” response to a journalist asking her about the alleged Johnny Depp breakup. The rumor is that Vanessa and Johnny — who never married but have two kids together — are separating because he has fallen for his “Dark Shadows” co-star Eva Green, who is also a gorgeous Frenchwoman. We were hoping this split was just vicious gossip, but everybody knows a People magazine cover means business. [Starpulse]
Last week Miley Cyrus celebrated boyfriend Liam Hemsworth’s 21st birthday by licking a confectionery replica of a penis. My, what a large cake. She looks like she’s done this before. It’s all that any man could wish of his 19-year-old girlfriend — that she be well-versed in giving cake jobs. See the NSFW version after the jump. [TMZ] Keep reading »
