Gwyneth Paltrow Goes “Mean Girls” On Vanity Fair

  • Why is Gwyneth Paltrow emailing all her friends and asking them not to speak with reporters from Vanity Fair for an upcoming story about her? They must have done something to piss Her Gwyn-ness off. Anyway, that’s so middle school. [Huffington Post]
  • Speaking of middle school, Kanye West slammed Kim Kardashian’s sex tape pal Ray J while performing on Jimmy Fallon last night.  [The Hollywood Gossip]
  • “Bridesmaids” star Maya Rudolph gave birth to her fourth kiddo with director Paul Thomas Anderson. Mazel tov! [US Weekly]
  • “American Psycho” is becoming a TV series on FX. Remember, casting directors, been there, done that and Scott Disick cannot act. [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »

Let’s All Look At Vanity Fair‘s Best-Dressed List, Shall We?

Vanity Fair, that magazine that your parents probably have in their bathroom magazine rack, does a yearly analysis of the best-dressed celebs, socialites and entrepreneurs. Generally, it seems, the only qualification to appear on the list is that you have to be really, ridiculously rich.  Of course, nice clothes help. But really, money does not buy you actual style (nor does it buy you class, as LuAnn de Lesseps can attest). With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the latest Vanity Fair list. As expected, the list has some celebs on it, but it’s also got a healthy number of models and socialites (including one dude whose “profession” is master of foxhounds) — plus quite a few struggling musicians and C-list actors whose families happen to be incredibly wealthy and well-connected (trust funds, anyone?). Oh, are you possibly vaguely related to the Medici’s or some other powerful Renaissance family? You’re on it.

We put together a short list of some of the dozens of best-dressed picks, analyzing what they wore — plus, we also threw in some of the people we think actually deserve to be on the list. (I mean, how do you leave Diane Kruger and Solange off a best-dressed round up?) Take a look, won’t you?

A new Vanity Fair/”60 Minutes” poll surveyed American adults about the qualities they look for in an ideal woman. And, by George, we’ve got one: she’s a “bold and experienced” “good mother” who hates the movie “Fatal Attraction,” doesn’t smoke, and is a doctor. But don’t feel bad if that doesn’t describe you … because it doesn’t describe most of us.

Here’s a closer look at the stats so you know exactly what you should be like, if you want to make a bunch of random people who read Vanity Fair and/or watch “60 Minutes” like you:

kerry washington covers vanity fair

Well done, Vanity Fair, for shooting the brainy and beautiful Kerry Washington for your August cover. Even on the cool blue tiles of a swimming pool, the lovely “Scandal” star is sizzling hot. She just landed her first ladymag cover on Elle last month, so it figures the woman who plays Olivia Pope would dominate Vanity Fair by summer’s end. This is one issue I can’t wait to arrive in my mailbox.  [Jezebel]

You — Yes, You! — Could Top Vanity Fair‘s Best Dressed List

Because I was a weird kid, I’ve been reading Vanity Fair since I was, like, 14. There’s nothing I enjoy more than long-form stories about society murders, celebrity addicts and presidential affairs. Every year, Vanity Fair also comes up with a best-dressed list, chock full of names of socialites, French nobility and a gallimaufry of minor European royalty. Usually I don’t know more than a few of the names on the list, and couldn’t even begin to imagine the clothing budgets these people must have.

But this year, VF is making things a bit more democratic. In a ploy to seem relevant, the aged magazine is opening its Best Dressed competition to the public. Nan Kempner is rolling over in her extra-small couture grave. Keep reading »

The writer in charge of Amanda Seyfriend’s mini-interview with Vanity Fair referred to Ms. Seyfried as “very pale and very interesting,” which, I don’t know, sounds like a kind of a weird backhanded compliment or something. Typically anything described by journalists as “interesting” isn’t at all. And plus, I guess I’m more taken with this huge dog she’s posing with than I am with Amanda. [Vanity Fair]

  • Lindsay Lohan weirdly tweeted at Tom Cruise that she “had NO part” in the current Vanity Fair cover story about him auditioning possible wives … although LiLo’s name is never mentioned anywhere in the article. The Huffington Post reported the Lindsay met with Tom back in 2005, not Vanity Fair. But Lindsay explicitly denies talking to VF, which seems sort of weird she is suddenly injecting herself into it, no? And now I have a headache again for trying to make sense of Lindsay Lohan.

Vanity Fair releases its Best Dressed list annually in the September issue, and each year the results are less surprising than they are, well, wholly expected. It’s the typical Hollywood-meets-high society fodder: nubile French starlets, rap moguls, heiresses, oil magnates, real estate tycoons, athletes, and royalty regularly monopolize the coveted ranks without so much as batting a diamond-studded, private jet-flying eye. Really, nobody who makes the list particularly cares whether or not they make it, because they don’t have to. As for the top spot, well, that goes to Kate Middleton this time around — is there anything more predictable? Keep reading »

Her 12 Best Looks: Fan BingBing

Fan BingBing is a major star in her native China, where she’s managed to eek out a dual career as both a film star and a pop singer. That means you can find her on multiple red carpets in a month, wearing multiple gorgeous and effervescent gowns.

This month, BingBing’s been granted a profile in Vanity Fair — a sign that her fame is in no way on the wane. In it, she admits to never leaving the house sans fards and having a particular penchant for red lipstick. Us too, lady, us too.

When she was a child, she fell in love with clothes — her mother owned a boutique. And it’s evident in the sartorial choices she makes these days. Check them out after the jump.
