“I’ve lost 100 pounds. I feel like I’m back in my element and not wearing a suit, a bad suit. And I honestly didn’t even realize what I looked like too much. Right before I did Dancing with the Stars, I bought these dresses in size 14 to 4, the same dress, and I said, ‘You know what I really want? I really want to be in this dress in a 4.’”
What do you guys think though? Am I off in my doubting, do you think Kirstie really has lost that much weight? Or is this just another deluded statement from everyone’s favorite Scientologist?

Man, that Joan Collins. What a crazy bitch, right? Everything this woman says is pretty much pure cattiness, and I’m not going to lie, it makes me giggle. So, of course, if there’s a new story going around about Joan talking shit about a good handful of today’s lady stars, I’m going to let you guys know about it.
On Gwyneth Paltrow: “Is she the one who called her grandmother a rude word on air?” she asks, dismissively. “I thought that was pretty shocking.”
On Keira Knightley: “Well, she’s thin,” is all Joan will say.
On Carey Mulligan: “I don’t want to comment on Carey Mulligan,” she remarks sadly, before proceeding to do just that. “I can’t believe she’s playing Eliza Doolittle in a new movie.”
On Kate Winslet: I move on and show her a picture of Kate Winslet taken a few days earlier at the Venice Film Festival. She lets out a huge sigh. “Oh, that’s a dreadful dress. The worst dress. And ghastly shoes and an awful hairstyle. I’m sorry.” She shakes her head.
On Adele: “She’s a very good singer, very, very talented, but she has a terrible hairpiece.”
On Kate Moss: Kate Moss is “OK, but she’s not Linda Evangelista in my mind.”
On Victoria Beckham: “Oh I love Victoria Beckham. You’ve finally found someone I like.”
But really, how wacky is Joan Collins these days? Do you love it?

I’m just kidding, of course I don’t feel like a fool! I feel happy and proud and delighted to be able to show you guys the latest single from Florence and the Machine, “Shake It Out.” It’s fabulous, as always, and I reckon it’s a pretty darn good way to kick off this evening.

Wait a second, is that Rihanna with mostly normal hair? Like, real hair and not nylon fibers attached to a cheap rubber-backed suction strip? Why yes, it certainly appears to be! It also appears that she might have gotten permission from Dr. Huxtable to raid his wife’s closet while she was out on some lawyery business trip, too, because that outfit? Woo. It is straight outta the Cosbys.
Love it? Leave it?

This isn’t the first time Williams has posed as Marilyn: she appeared in a haunting promo shot for her upcoming role in the movie My Week with Marilyn.
In the Vogue interview, pin-thin Williams admits she tried to gain weight for the part. “Unfortunately, it went right to my face,” she explains. “So at some point it became a question of, ‘Do I want my face to look like Marilyn Monroe’s, or my hips?’” The director settled, finally, on using foam padding to create Marilyn’s curves.
Williams threw herself into studying Monroe’s life, mannerisms, and movements for the part.
“I do remember one moment of being all suited up as Monroe,” Williams explains, “and walking from my dressing room onto the soundstage practicing my ‘wiggle’.
“There were three or four men gathered around a truck, and I remember seeing that they were watching me—and for the very first time, I glimpsed some idea of the pleasure I could take in that kind of attention. Not their pleasure, but my pleasure. And I thought, ‘Oh, maybe Marilyn felt that way when she walked down the beach.’”
Three years ago, it felt like we didn’t have anything, and now my life—our life—has kind of repaired itself.
Look, it’s not a perfectly operating system—there are holes and dips and electrical storms—but the basics are intact.
It’s changed how I see the world and how I interact on a daily basis. It’s changed the parent I am. It’s changed the friend I am. It’s changed the kind of work that I really want to do. It’s become the lens through which I see life—that it’s all impermanent.
