At last night’s Mr. Porter Suits & Style event, the combination of cocktails, television and fashion created the perfect way to spend a Tuesday evening. At first glance, onlookers walking around the High Line probably wondered why men in check shirts and bow ties, holding big, white umbrellas were escorting people along the walkways. Or why there were women with clipboards manning the roped off entrance; or even why were there 1960s hits blaring from the speakers inside? Little did they know it was a cocktail party and fashion show hosted by Mr. Porter and Vanity Fair Magazine to celebrate the USA hit T.V. series, Suits.
Ah, Courtney Love. The mere mention of the shameless rocker's name alone constitutes an automatic shaking of the head. Or at least it does for me. And yet, she is just so deliciously entertaining to watch...
What is the Hole frontwoman talking about now?
This time, actually, she talks to Vanity Fair about her late husband - Kurt Cobain of grunge band Nirvana. His apparent "suicide" in 1994 has affected not only rock fans everywhere, but the entire music industry as well. Their most popular album, Nevermind (1991), has become a cultural icon. Left behind are his wife and their now 19-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
Finally, news about Angelina Jolie that comes from her own mouth, instead of other "sources" making claims about things she MIGHT have mentioned.
In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, A-lister Angelina addresses the constant rumors of marriage and of the "supposed" new additions to the Jolie-Pitt household. She reassures that there is “no secret wedding” coming up for her and long-time partner Brad Pitt. "I’m not pregnant. I’m not adopting at the moment,” Angelina then adds to contributing editor Rich Cohen.
Justin Timberlake, one of the most successssful stars working in showbiz, is almost equally famous for his intriguing personal life; along with his credentials as recording artist, actor, entrepreneur, constant SNL visitor...you get the picture.
It comes as no surprise that during an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, the subject of his past relationships is brought up. This is an especially touchy issue since Timberlake's four-year relationship with actress Jessica Biel just ended in March.
Then again, the interview quickly turns focuses on another memorable ex: none other than pop princess Britney Spears. It seems just like yesterday...the royal couple of MTV conquered not only the music charts, but the tabloid magazines as well. It was similar to watching Ken & Barbie in real life. Now it is nothing but a memory (tear), after cheating allegations caused the infamously bitter break-up.
From his relationship with Kristen Stewart to Charlie Sheen, Robert Pattinson opens up in the interview he gave to Vanity Fair. Here's what he has to say.
- On dating Stewart: "When this is over, the media will lose interest. There'll be nothing to say. It won't fit into a headline anymore. It won't fit into a template."
- On Stewart as an actress: "She's cool. Even before I knew her I thought she was a really good actress. Like, I saw Into the Wild, and I thought she was really good in that. I still think there are very few girls in her class that are as good as she is."
2010 was an excellent year for the Twilight actress.
First, she's dating one of the cutest guys in the world, Robert Pattinson.
Second, Stewart was ranked number one in Vanity Fair's Hollywood Top 40. She raked in more than any actress in Hollywood last year, totaling $28.5 million overall.
She takes the lead to Jennifer Aniston ($24.5) and Angelina Jolie ($23.5).
But Stewart still has a long way to go to equal men actors...
The number one is Johnny Depp who earned $100 million in one single year. He's followed by Leonardo DiCaprio ($62 million), Adam Sandler ($34 million), Taylor Lautner (($33.5 million) and Robert Downey Jr. ($31.5 million).

In an interview with Vanity Fair that took place right before Lindsay Lohan was headed to the slammer and then rehab for violating the conditions of her probation from a DUI arrest, Lohan said she wants her career back. Most of her mistakes she chalks up to be young and irresponsible. She said this about being on her own in Los Angeles as a teenager, “it was very go-go-go and I had a lot of responsibility, and I think just the second I didn’t have [structure] anymore – I was 18, 19 – with a ton of money and no one really here to tell me that I couldn’t do certain things… And I see where that’s gotten me now, and I don’t like it.”
