The September Issue is a big deal within magazines especially fashion-centric ones, so I’m delighted to read today that my #3 Style Crush Rachel Bilson has landed the September cover of InStyle UK! She looks uh-mazing in a Herve Leger bandage dress and in fact because she is the cover star I’m going to go pick up a copy. There’s a video on the site and you can see the nail varnish she is wearing, and it looks to me like a purply-grey and I love it, and will be hunting down a version for myself.
You know what I like to watch 90210, the new version of Beverley Hills 90210 television series that was around from 1990 to 2000.
It’s okay, it showcases some nice pieces of fashion and the story lines are out there with all the other teen soaps in the US.
The one thing that bothers me is the disappearing frame of AnnaLynne McCord. I mean her mouth just becomes more prominent every time I see a picture of her, she needs some fat on her to distract from staring into that black hole.
Here she is at the CBS/The CW/Showtime Summer Party at the Beverley Hilton Hotel in California, don’t get me wrong she looks gorgeous in the dress but she is just so tiny.
On set filming:
I suppose she’s not all ribs and jutting bones skinny, but it just seems when she’s sharing a camera with someone as gorgeous as Jessica Lowndes who is probably the most natural and curviest of the cast you wonder why she feels the need to be that tiny! It’s ridiculous that Jessica is probably called ‘the fat one’ even though she’s probably only a UK size 8, when the girls of the cast are stood next to each other she would be the one normal girls would associate with and it’s nice to see that she’s happy not super skinny.
It’s probably just jealousy from me that AnnaLynne gets to share a bed with Kellan Lutz, he’s so fit and hunky that I bet he wonders he might snap her in half if he touches her. And that’s without being a vampire…
Once again I’m on Vogue, as I literally have nothing better to do than browse all the lovely photographs. I was looking through the Cartier International Polo gallery to see who went (quite a collection of people Geri Halliwell to Tina Hobley, who?) and David Gandy popped up looking perfect in this double breasted suit jacket with cropped sleeves. I mean what man could pull that look off? No one but Gandy, I say.
And then to my delight Vogue suggests I visit David Gandy’s blog. Yes that’s right he’s the newest guest blogger for Vogue.com! They have so many it’s hard to keep up reading them all but this one I definitely will especially seeing as though his new ad for Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue with Anna Jagodzinska is out shortly and it is intense.
I just feel so sorry for Rob Pattinson in this video clip. He just wants to go to wherever he’s going but he’s got a billion papparazzi following him around.
Now I’m a bit 2-sided here, as someone interested both the media and how news is reported I love to hear about what celebrities get up to but this is just awful. To be invaded so much on a daily basis I don’t know how RPattz keeps up this nice guy persona. He’s soooo lovely and cute and pretty and well you know the rest.
I’ve just been browsing Vogue.com and they have a feature on Beach Chic, and I must admit I do love looking at swimwear and the way that designers accessorise the beach outfits. I just find it difficult to really channel the same or similar looks, I mean when you go to the beach or on holiday can you really get away with a cut-out swimsuit or a mahoosive jewelled necklace, all I’d keep thinking is “what about my tan lines??!!!”
I think this amazing picture that Vogue have used of Raquel Welch is classic and stunning, and goes back to a simpler time and design.
However I do like a few of the swimsuits that are featured in the gallery, and if I had the time and money I would go ahead and load up my suitcase with fantastic pieces and wear a different one every day I’d be lazing about on my imaginary beach in Fiji.
I think this suit by VPL would look 10 times better on me, I have what is called curves not juttin hip bones.
I’ve got plenty of ideas now for when I go on my travels next year, I hope I get spotted for Vogue Australia haha!
Okay I have to say something about the genius that is Comic-Con. I’ve come to realise these past few years how much of a BIG DEAL it is. And I wish I was there.
According to Wikipedia the convention was founded in 1970 by comic fan Shel Dorf, so it’s been going strong for 30 years.
It’s grown considerably in popularity and from just showcasing comic books. Now it seems Comic-Con is the recreational site of choice for self-confessed celebrity geeks, most are actors/actresses/directors/producers/stars from television series and the like.
I mean where else would you see (apart from say the Oscars) would you see Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman under the same roof?
All there for their respective films, Angie sat on the panel for her new action movie Salt, where she said: “I think this is a better action movie than the ones I have done.” And as we all know Angie is a fan of the semi-automatic kind of weapon and she added, “I got to play with just about everything including using a fire extinguisher in a way I’d never used it.”
For the Green Lantern panel, Blake Lively showcased her talents (yes I’m talking about her boobs) and Ryan Reynolds was there too looking all dishy. JustJared reported that a female attendee had tweeted about the panel, “Nerds in Hall H transfixed… It’s like a normal dress but only it’s missing a chest piece. Even I’m transfixed.” Fantastic. I’m plenty sure that Scarlett Johansson only agreed to be in The Avengers is so she could go to Comic-Con and spy on her hubby Ryan Reynolds.
*Update – Blake is wearing Preen’s Haulster Bra
Yes for me the big announcement, well I hadn’t heard that Joss Whedon had decided on the cast of The Avengers until Comic-Con, but who would play who in this hugely anticipated comic-movie.
Samuel L. Jackson – Nick Fury
Scarlett Johansson – reprising her role as Black Widow
Chris Hemsworth – Thor
Chris Evans – Captain America
Robert Downey Jr. – Iron Man
And Tah dah….
Jeremy Renner – Hawkeye
Mark Ruffalo – The Hulk
The last being my favourite, I really am excited to see Ruffalo play the green monster, the whole movie will be tres good.
I also saw a little preview of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack (yess someone had illegally recorded it and posted it on Youtube but it was awesome), there were plenty of other reveals including some from Alan Ball the creator of True Blood.
So let’s just talk about how effing fantastic that show is. Adapted from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris (I am currently reading them I suggest you go out and buy them all NOW) it follows a a telepathic barmaid, the title character, who realises she lives in an amazingly dangerous world of the supernatural which she is begrudgingly a part of. Think sexy vampires (nothing like Twilight), hot werewolves, weird maenads, witches (books not the show yet) and fairies. Yes FAIRIES.
If you think this sounds like shit, then you are wrong you have not sampled the delights of Eric and co. Here he is in his glory:
Here’s the Season 3 preview that was aired:
Oh yeah and Olivia Munn was there next to some stormtroopers (yeah every Star Wars’ geek wet dream):
As well as all these wonderful people and wonderful films and television shows, comic books, fantasy novels, video games, anime and collectibles I would just like to say how much I would like to have been there. And as discussed with fellow blogger Contains Scenes of Mild Peril and fellow tweeters, I want to be there one day. One day…
