Kelly Osbourne, looking extremely cute.
Kanye West, looking extremely pretentious, is wearing the cover from his Louis Vuitton shoe buffer as a scarf, and a big-ass 70s-style bow-tie.

Tilda Swinton doesn't look too bizarre, for once.
Angelina couldn't get more plain and simple with her elegant black gown, and she needs a little powder.

Can Iman be any more airbrushed?
Style icon and international supermodel, Iman, returns as Host of Project Runway Canada. Iman leads a panel of expert industry insiders who will judge the talent and skills of 14 promising new designers from across the country. Legendary Canadian Fashion Designer Brian Bailey reprises his role as mentor to the competitors.
Vying for top-spot as the next Canadian fashion star, contestants compete in dramatic challenges hoping to seize their breakthrough moment. Faced with do-or-die tasks and extreme pressure, aspiring designers must endure the added stress of living under the same roof. Personalities will clash and tension will rise over the 12 episodes, culminating in a two-part finale.
Only one designer will win it all – a cover and feature spread in ELLE Canada, a professional portfolio photo shoot courtesy of L'Oréal Paris, a 'Runway to Retail' business mentorship with Winners, and $100,000 to start their own fashion line.

So what are you waiting for? Go to Boucheron and put your heart's desire under their tree. Who knows - it may someday be yours!

Anna Wintour played matchy-matchy with her shoes, hose, and her glittery argyle-gone-awry top, while Andre Leon Talley channeled all of his favorite clowns at the same time.
Speaking of clowns, the lovely Charlize Theron looks even lovelier standing next to designer John Galliano, who is never afraid to get dressed up for an occasion.
Wacktress Juliette Lewis doesn't look half bad in a shiny jumpsuit, but her feet look like they're shedding in those buff-colored fringed shoes.
Did Blake Lively get new boobs? And why is she channeling Little House on the Prairie?

I'm rather interested in this dress that Gemma Arterton is wearing in a party scene during Quantum of Solace. I couldn't find an image of the whole thing, but the splatter effect reminded me a bit of the Narciso Rodriguez that Michelle Obama wore on election night (but prettier and subtler). Anyone know the designer of Gemma's silver and black number?

Running my fingers along the length of you,
I admire your size,
your veiny maleness,
Holding you in my hand, I imagine the
pleasure yet to come
As I inhale deeply,
breathing in your pungent aroma
which fills my nostrils with its earthy sweet scent.
I touch my tongue lightly to your tip,
feel its smooth curve.
I test the opening there
which will soon be moist
from the wetness of my lips.
I cannot wait to take you into my mouth
To taste you.
My lips part with anticipation.
Not resisting any longer,
I suck gently,
igniting the flame.
Soon my desires are filled
and you are spent,
lying on your side in the ashtray.
And I contemplate my next cigar.
(Ha! Got you there, didn't I?)
Kilian Hennessey,known for the romantically named and conceptualized fragrances in his L’Oeuvre Noire (The Black Masterpiece), has produced a seventh scent for the line. Created by Calice Becker, author of four other By Kilian scents, as well as Dior’s J’Adoreand Hilfiger’s Tommy Girl, the scent is meant to evoke an olfactory memory of a first encounter. Fragrances are indeed excellent mnemonic devices, and Prelude to Love makes me think of my first (and second, and third, and ninth) encounters with the richly fragrant place known as the Beauty Floor at Bergdorf Goodman. A place with which I am indeed in love. It is a place that, in my mind, is redolent of iris (even if it really isn’t).
Prelude to Love Invitation opens with a light yet bright bouquet of bergamot,orange, and lemon that is pleasantly soapy. Presently we encounter neroli which is immediately followed by a lovely soft iris note, buttery and soft, not at all rooty. It lingers on the skin softly and sweetly, bathed in subtle floralcy with a clinging hint of citrus.
Prelude to Love speaks in a whisper. It’s lovely and subtle, a scent that stays close to the skin and that will draw in those around you for a closer whiff. Perhaps a first encounter.

H&M will launch the collection of tailored jackets, polka dot knits and even a “showpiece” coatdress adorned with Victorian ruffles, this Thursday, November 13th. They're limiting customers to 2 pieces of any style so hopefully they won't completely sell out in the first fifteen minutes.
Save a c0uple pieces for me, willya?
