charlotte-dawson

I didn’t know Charlotte Dawson. I met her briefly once at a Women of Letters event back in June 2012 and I remember thinking that she was even more beautiful in person than she was on TV. I have been a fan of Charlotte since the first season of Australia’s Next Top Model. I loved her frankness in judging, but also the kindness she showed the contestants. She appeared to be a person who cared deeply. Read More

2013 oscars – full list of winners

Oscars

The 85th Annual Academy Awards was held at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and was hosted by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. While initally skeptical about the choice of MacFarlane as host, I actually found him to be rather good. Granted, I haven’t seen it all, but I loved the opening monologue which you can watch below. Continue reading for my fashion picks, some amazing performances and a full list of winners.  Read More

2013 grammy awards – full list of winners

GrammyAwardsTrophys_620_120512

The 55th Grammy Awards happened at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Despite some strict dress code rules this year, the read carpet at the Grammy’s is always interesting. For my fashion picks, I’m going for the most ‘sensible’ as it’s hard to judge the really out-there styles the Grammy’s bring. There were performances by Justin Timerlake and Jay Z, Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys and that’s just the beginning! fun was a big winner taking home Song of the Year and The Black Keys taking home a few awards. Gotye and Adele were winners as well (obviously). Read More

2013 SAG Awards – full list of winners

SAGAwards

The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards were held at Los Angeles’ historic Shine Auditorium. With less than a month to go until the Academy Awards (or the Oscars as they are more commonly known), the SAG Awards are generally a glimpse at what is to be expected for the wins. Celebrating both Film and Television, Australian’s were very well represented. Without a host, I generally prefer the running of the SAG Awards to almost any other, as it is seamless and well run. My favourite part of the ceremony? When Dick Van Dyke won the Lifetime Achievement Award. Keep reading for my fashion picks, Dick’s acceptance and a full list of winners. Read More

The 2013 Golden Globe Awards have come to a close. Unfortunately (but also fortunately) I have been at work so I haven’t been able to watch the ceremony yet (though it is recorded on iQ at home) so I can’t give you a run down of the ceremony, other than to say that Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell presenting the award for Best Actress in Comedy or Musical was hilarious. What I can do is give you my fashion favourites and a full list of winners. Enjoy! Read More

comedy at the expense of others

One of my favourite comedic actors is Will Ferrell. I love Anchorman and Step Brothers and The Other Guys and basically any movie he’s ever been in. He’s just my kind of comedian. When I saw a recent clip of him on Conan talking about how upset he was that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson, I was laughing so hard I had tears. If you check it out, I think you’ll agree:

I had a much better quality copy of this video before it was removed and this may be removed by the user after publishing.

katie finally gets out

In happier times…

This is the first weekend in a long time that I’ve actually slept in, not that I’ve had to be up early, but the fact that my body actually allowed me to sleep in and it seems that while I was sleeping, Hollywood decided it would be a great time to release some of the most intense celebrity news of the year. First, that the super lovely Adele is expecting her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki which you can read about here. And second, and possibly more importantly, that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise after over five years of marriage. Read More

the element of surprise

I’ve spoken before about my love of Giuliana and Bill Rancic and how I’m very happy for them that they are expecting a baby via gestational surrogate. This week, they held a baby shower with their friends and enticed them on the invite with the knowledge that by the end of the shower, they would know if it was a girl or a boy. My initial gut feeling was that it was a girl, don’t ask me why, I just really felt that it was. But having a second look at the invitation, the gender of the baby is pretty obvious, isn’t it? I just hadn’t realised it until now. If you want to know whether Giuliana and Bill are having a boy or girl, keep reading.  Read More
