Car Crash Review: Eclipse

July 4, 2010

The Twilight franchise is like junk food for my head.  It’s like looking at a big, sugary donut and you crave it, so you eat it, but afterwards you feel a bit guilty and sick and think you really shouldn’t eat one again any time soon.  But then of course you do.

The films in particular are a total sugar-crash for my mind.  They seem like a really good idea at first, but by the time I’m halfway through I’m sort of waiting for it to end  and feeling sort of silly for getting so excited over scenes of saccharine teenage love in the first place.

But I went to see Eclipse last night with about 500 other loons who thought it was worth going to see in the middle of the night and actually really enjoyed it and think I probably could watch it again without asking myself “why!?” afterwards.



Oscars 2010: And more people wore more stuff

March 13, 2010

As well as the event itself, the after-parties cultivated yet even more outfits to ogle, especially the Vanity Fair one.  And you know what?  That bloody Cameron Diaz only went and did it AGAIN later in the night.

Like the dress she wore for the ceremony, this is glitzy, glam and super-flattering but also makes her look youthful.  Another huge thumbs-up.

I think we can now finally forgive her for that time she kept wearing bowler hats.


The Oscars happened and some people wore some clothes

Dear reader, give your eyes a long, cool, delicious sip of this:

Oh Cameron.  Oh Cammy, Cammy, Cammy.  Wow.

I actually gasped when I first saw this picture and then looked around the room to see if anyone else was looking over my shoulder, also basking in the feminine sparkliness.  As it happened, no one was, they were all working like I should have been, but still, I basked alone and oohed and ahhed to myself over how gorgeous she looks.

This is, by far my favourite look of the night.


And while we’re talking about the ladies of Nine

I can’t tell what’s more glowing and vibrant – the dress, or Penelope herself.

This is exactly how satin should be worn – no creases or unsightly lumps or bumps.  It’s an unforgiving material but Ms Cruz has totally made it her bitch. The colour, cut, everything about that dress was made for her.

Somewhere in Hollywood, a makeup artist has just been sacked…

How on earth did that happen?  Nicole Kidman must have looked in a mirror the last opportunity she had before stepping on the red carpet!

An over-zealous makeup artist must have decided to give her a quick finishing touch in the limo and not blended properly.  A costly mistake.  I can’t quite imagine the scene that must have ensued when Nicole saw these pictures.

I wonder whether it was noticeable to all who was there or whether the excess powder only showed up against the glare of the paps’ camera bulbs?

Rihanna’s dress is scary, however you look at it

Ok.  If you look at the big, angry gorilla’s mouth for long enough, it starts to look as though she has a big, gory, gaping wound in her stomach.

You know, a bit like that scene from Death Becomes Her:


So, either way you look at it- big, screaming monkey or big, gory hole – it’s not really the best look.
