Who wore it better: Liz or Gaga

Gaga vs Liz Hurley

Gaga vs Liz Hurley

Is this even a contest? We admit it is not. The dress (once and forever known simply as That Dress) fits Liz better across the body, it’s the right length for her, her hair colour works better with it , the accessories pick up the gold and echo the shapes of the pins, and she has more sense than to wear a revealing drop dead dress with shoes that look like she mugged a fetish Clydesdale for them.

Also: face the same colour as body. These things matter when there’s that much skin on show.

Liz Hurley is fierce. Lady Gaga is forced.

How’s it going, Kristen Stewart?

It's one step away from finger guns

It's one step away from finger guns

Holding it together, I see.

Kristen, sweetheart. I knew Liz Hurley. Liz Hurley once snubbed a friend of mine. You, my dear, are no Liz Hurley.

Liz doesn't actually care if it all falls apart, as indeed it did a few years later

Liz doesn't actually care if it all falls apart, as indeed it did a few years later

Actually, I don’t hate the dress. I don’t see the point of it, but I don’t hate it. It looks like a twenty-thousand dollar cross between a punk rock leather jacket and a Christian Louboutin spike shoe. That said, something has obviously fundamentally changed in the celeb-o-sphere: She’s showing evidence of some emotion other than “mopey” and that’s got to be either a good thing or a sign the Rapture is indeed approaching. So what the heck, here’s to that with a Happy Face cocktail and some gossip links:

Batman shows off his Buggysnake, his birds, and his Bat Moves in Badass Brazilian Bat Dance Action! (raincoaster)

Name That Sock! Holey celebrity footwear, Batman, whoever that is should be arrested! (Ayyyy)

Cambridge Scholar? You might be good enough to sign on as a servant at Casa Goopy. Yes, it’ll be torture working for her, but think of the book deal! (AgentBedhead)

It’s a man, baby! Blind item not quite as blind as this retro leading man might wish. (BusyBeeBlogger)

NOBODY ignores Anna Wintour and lives. Sienna Miller had better start saying her prayers (and also laying off the facial fillers). (CelebDirtyLaundry)

Did Jessica Biel get her pity fuck after all? Gerard Butler says…she’ll take what she can get; wouldn’t you? (CelebritySmack)

Photo PROOF Gerard Butler looks like the Great Gazoo! I’m not kidding, people. Cannot be unseen! (INeedMyFix)

Is this a photo of Jack Black playing with himself on the red carpet? Yes. Yes, I’m pretty sure that it is. (MathewGuiver)

Rafael Nadal shows you one reason to love white jeans. Well, technically this might be two reasons… (SwoonWorthy)


Somehow this is Prince Harry’s fault

The Royal Wedding entrance like none other. My shameful past as a Prince Andrew fangirl with full-on subscriptions to Majesty AND The Royals comes out as I say the Princess Ann and Camilla lookalikes are really startlingly good, but the emo cynic within me comes out when I note that even the fake Prince Harry has way more fun than the fake Prince William, who has way more fun than either of the real ones.

Now, let’s toast these glorious ersatzii with (what else?) a Buck’s Fizz and some common gossip links.

Fred Astaire will have none of your tawdry, drunken gossip links

Fred Astaire loved his shoes

Fred Astaire loved his shoes

Strangely for a man of his era, but not-so-strangely for a trained athlete, Fred strongly maintained that he had no favorite drink, so I suppose when we salute Fred we will have to do it with an elegant dancing slipper full of imaginary Champagne. He may not have known much about alcohol, but he obviously knew from shoes, and for that we honour him.

And then trudge right on to our tawdry, drunken gossip links. *hic*

Hump Day Hunk Links: Jake Gyllenhaal AGAIN

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal. I was going to write a more elaborate caption, but I got distracted

Yes, yes, we’ve featured Jakey-poo time without number, but I defy you to watch this video and not give it up for him (although perhaps Anne Hathaway sort of steals it). Jake Gyllenhaal, talking about his favorite romantic love song.

Adolf Hitler, found at last? (raincoaster)

Louis Vuitton is Sari

Louis Vuitton Sari Dress

It doesn’t look much like a traditional sari, but this is the new Louis Vuitton ready-to-wear limited edition Sari Dress by Marc Jacobs. It’s made of vintage Sari materials, primarily silk of course, but also including gold threads. And while on the one hand, lovely fabrics, nice idea, unfortunately, none of these strapless, bubble-skirted 80’s throwbacks have anything like the authentic allure of a real sari, or even the stylishly referential nod of this dress from Ralph Lauren:

or this, from Tadashi Shoji, at Saks:


In short, while sari fabrics ARE awesome, they’re not the most awesome thing about the sari. The most awesome thing about the sari is…the sari.
She looks good in anything, but she looks amazing in this

However, the top is important too, Elizabeth.

Hump Day Links: the capital of Colin Farrell

Ah, after all these years, what has not already been said about the protean talents of hottie and character actor Colin Farrell? Remember the time LiLo gave him her phone number in the gym? And he asked her how old she was? And she said seventeen? And he handed the card back and said call me in a year? and she did? And the rest is (medical) history?

He didn’t look like this back then:

A Baby Free Get Away Ends For Colin Farrel and Alicia!

Yes, it’s Colin “hottest fry cook in the chip wagon” Farrell, the pride of Dublin. Actually, given how drastically Lindsay’s gone downhill in the last year, he’s probably out of her league now, however much he might try to tone down teh sex-ay.

And believe me, he’s trying.

Colin Farrells soul-killing soul patch

So Colin, what do you think of Bruges? (NSFW language, unless you work as a blogger, in which case at least be sure the people in the cafe can’t hear this)

Sure, blondes have more fun, but does she LOOK like a girl who likes to have fun? (AgentBedhead)

There IS justice in the world (AmyGrindhouse)

Kendra Wilkinson a FAR better actress than anyone suspected (BusyBeeBlogger)

If nomenclature and PR couldn’t keep these guys together, what hope IS there? (CelebritySmack)

Reader question: Celebrating your assets

Q: If I were to describe myself in two words, it would be “fantastic rack”. Tell me, how should I celebrate this undeniable fact?

A: I offer up two options to pay tribute to your bounteous bosom.   Firstly, you can order a tasteful floral arrangement to be delivered straight to your pushed up boobs, where they will sit quite nicely and draw attention to the area in question. Alternatively, you can construct an equally tasteful shrine for these marvels – it may take a little getting used to at first, but once the worshippers start gathering to pay their respects you will surely find the effort was totally worth it.
