Some weekend reading for you, people....
I think of male celebrity awards dressing as pretty boring, normally - it's that George Clooney wedding tuxedo look - but this Vanity Fair slideshow suggests otherwise. Ladies, check out Ryan Gosling in a cobalt blue tuxedo. All this ahead of the Oscars telecast on Monday.
I am a little bit obsessed with the fabulous Emanuel brothers, the trio of LA siblings. Ari is one of the biggest Hollywood agents (and apparently inspired the Ari character in TV's Entourage), Rahm is the former chief-of-staff for Obama, now mayor of Chicago, and Ezekiel a noted bioethicist. I once sat next to Ari at a dinner party and was absolutely enamoured by him; he was so switched-on and charismatic and intelligent. Ezekiel has just written a memoir, and an excerpt is here in Vanity Fair. I love the sound of this family.
I haven't picked up US Cosmopolitan magazine in a million years, but by gosh, this new editor-in-chief Joanna Coles makes me want to. Ms. Coles gives this great quote: “A couple of male gay friends of mine have suggested they write sex columns for me. And I was like ‘Buddy, women are fine without [sex] advice from gay men.' Read more of this quotable editor here.
Imagine the PR nightmare facing this cruise ship line: on the Carnival Triumph, passengers had to deal with overflowing toilets, limited food supplies and terrible conditions when a fire broke out and the ship lost power. Not only will they be refunded, but get this: the ship said they can keep their bathrobes! Whoo-hoo!
You know those Awkward Family Photos that have been turned into books? These are Awkward Pregnancy Photos. Warning: once you see this, you can't un-see it.
It's hard to go past this: an ostrich-feather-embellished helicopter, with Swarovski crytals, which is what Marie Antoinette would've zipped around in, apparently. Excuse me, pilot, take me to Barneys, stat!
