Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Christina Hendricks, Christina Ricci, and Jessica Chastain were all in attendance for the ELLE Style Awards, held in London last night at the Savoy.
Who hit it out of the ballpark? I like Rosie’s look, but I’m not feeling Christina’s purple floral dress nor Jessica’s. It’s a style awards ceremony, so I set my expectations high.
Ouch. Victoria’s Secret casting director Sophia Neophitou says she would never use Kate Upton for their brand’s televised show. She tells the New York Times:
“‘We would never use’ Ms. Upton for a Victoria’s Secret show. Adding that the choice would be “too obvious.”
“She’s like a Page 3 girl,” Neophitou continued, referencing the spread of scantily clad women that runs in the British newspaper The Sun. “She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.”
Her fans want to make it clear that Kate HAS modeled for Victoria’s Secret in the past. So apparently she’s good enough for their print ads, but not TV? And how unprofessional of this casting director to slam her like that in an interview.
The stars of VH1′s ‘Mob Wives’ headed over to visit with Rachael Ray and even let her give them a ‘make-under’. Renee Graziano, Drita D’Avanzo, and Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola dished with Rach (episode airs Thursday, Feb. 16):
Renee on the recent article the Post wrote about her:
“Well, first I’d like to thank the Post. Mr. Maddux, because the picture was great. I gotta be honest I’m really happy with the picture and especially with the article because the truth of the matter is for me it’s extremely personal. Not so much because it’s my dad or my ex husband. It’s because my son is involved. I think as mothers here, that is really the seriousness of it. What my ex husband did to my father and the other families is disgraceful.”
Renee’s younger sister created the concept of the show:
“Jennifer, my younger sister, my brilliant younger sister and I say she’s brilliant and this is not speaking on a “Mob thing”, this is speaking that she put a great cast together. She took it to a level that she wants women to know what our struggles are so we can help other women that are in the same position or similar positions to us as well. So kudos to Jennifer.”
Renee says she’s the one who brings the drama:
“Outta the three of us? Oh, it’s me! it’s definitely me!”
Are you watching this show? I think I need to start embracing more reality TV and just enjoy the trashy goodness that it is. I hadn’t even heard of this one and it’s in season 2 already!

‘Titanic‘ is heading back to theaters in April after receiving the 3D treatment and Kate Winslet is a little freaked out by the whole thing. She recently got a small 17 minute peek at it and shared her thoughts.
“A whole new generation is going to get to experience the film,” Winslet tells USA Today. “It’s very exciting that I can actually sit with them — together — and we can all watch it in a movie theater. That is going to be quite amazing, actually.”
“I was literally like, ‘Oh my God, make it stop! Is that me? Oh my God, that’s me. Block my ears, somebody! Somebody club out my senses. Make it f-cking stop!’”
While her costar Leonardo DiCaprio “looks so young and so skinny,” in the 1997 blockbuster, Winslet, 36, admits she’s “slightly freaked out” about seeing her 21-year-old self onscreen again.
“I’m sure I wasn’t really a very good actress. Seriously, we are talking about something that happened 15 years ago. It is a very long time ago. I’ve learned so much, and I’ve changed as a person so much since then. It is really quite weird. Can you imagine anything stranger? It’s going to be like famous all over again, Titanic all over again!”
I’m game to see this again in 3D. I don’t honestly care about the 3D part of it, just seeing it on the big screen again will be fun!
Are there any movies you’d go to the theater to see even though it’s been available on DVD for years?
Leighton Meester’s character Blair Waldorf isn’t the only one obsessed with fashion! Leighton was in a great mood as she was seen entering the Vera Wang show for New York Fashion Week.
Did you watch ‘Gossip Girl‘ last night? I started watching the show (all four seasons) right before the fifth season began and I’m completely addicted. I resisted it for years, but now I know what I was missing out on! I hope it goes for at least few more seasons.
