“She just needs to be quiet. She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.”
Martha Stewart waltzed right past the side-eye and straight up dissed Gwyneth Paltrow in the new issue of Net-A-Porter’s Porter magazine, according to Page Six. Stewart has long turned up her nose at actresses-turned-lifestyle experts, but she seems to reserve particular ire for Paltrow and her website/newsletter GOOP. Keep reading »
Blake Lively sat down with Vogue to answer 73 questions and heartily promote her new lifestyle site Preserve while decorating cupcakes. Things we learned? She identifies most with the male characters on “Sex and the City” (oh how I’d love for her to elaborate on that one), she’s a fan of Alan Watts, and she likes chocolate souffle. We also now know that her hubby Ryan Reynolds refers to their kitchen as “The Blakery,” and that she isn’t sure that people still go to Starbucks these days. Yes Blake, they do. [Vogue]
The clothes at last night’s fancy-pants Met Ball soiree were pretty and all, but I’m never going to be able to afford a custom-made, one-of-a-kind Lanvin dress. Not like I would have anywhere to wear it, so whatever. I — and you! — can, however, take some cues from some of the daring and stunning makeup looks worn by fabulous ladies like Beyonce, Emma Stone, and Marion Cotillard. Here are seven of my favorite made-up faces, plus the exact products used to achieve such flawlessness…
Ah, yes, just what the Internet needs: one more myopic blonde celebrity so enamored of her perfect, precious life that she’s deluded into genuinely believing that she can help you, yes, you, you darling humble peon, attain a similar perfect, precious, curated life. (Aw, it’s so cute how you can’t even curate your own life!) Thanks, Blake Lively! What would we do without you and the new company you plan to launch, the main element of which is “about storytelling and … about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that” — turn to GOOP for all of our life-curating needs? Heavens forbid. Curated, in this context … what does it mean? Does anyone have a GOOP dictionary on hand? Oh, no, my apologies, Blake, I recognize that “there’s nothing like it out there — it’s without a genre.” Reaaaaaal sorry about that. [via Jezebel]
So many Well Played fashion moments this week, so little time. Natalie Portman and Sarah Jessica Parker brought out the big guns for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala (someday I hope to be fancy enough to be invited to a “gala” or some sort), Eva Mendes looked radiant at Vanidades’s Icons of Style Gala, Miranda Kerr worked it the opening night of Romeo & Juliet on Broadway, and Blake Lively rocked a cool pantsuit situation at the Beauty in Wonderland event in Milan. Which star do you think was the best dressed of the week?
