Gabrielle Union in Valentino at the Fashion Awards: amazing and dramatic?

There was a great turnout at last night’s Fashion Awards in London, which named Kim Jones of Dior Men and Fendi as designer of the year. Here’s a link to the list of designers who won. First off was Gabrielle Union in a huge bright green Valentino with a side cape and a cutout bodice. I love the big poof in her hair I just wish her makeup wasn’t so subdued. A lot of women were wearing toned down makeup so that must be on trend. You know I like a giant Valentino gown, it fulfills my childhood Barbie fantasies. Just once I would love to wear an enormous dress like that – with all the diamonds too!

Billy Porter hosted, and he made his entrance in a houndstooth sequin Richard Quinn look with pointy shoulders. He was surrounded by acrobats in floral Richard Quinn jumpsuits. I’m trying to decide if Quinn should have coordinated the dancers’ looks with Porter, but that might have been too matchy looking.

Model Munroe Bergdorf looked like a Disney villain in this Richard Quinn ensemble. She’s the lizard queen who lures in children with her mesmerizing eyes. I love how she’s playing that up too.

Addison Rae got the worst Richard Quinn. You might wonder why she was there, but this event was sponsored by TikTok. Look at how uncomfortable she is in that ill fitting garish pink and silver bodice and tight mermaid skirt. She looks mad in some of the photos. It’s what she deserves.

This is Lily Allen in Fendi. I really like the idea and execution of this suit. It’s a tuxedo suit with just the lapels and I don’t think I’ve seen that before. It’s hard not to notice how small she is now.

Gillian Anderson was in Chloe, and she was there with their Creative Director, Gabriela Hearst. This looks so comfortable but it’s a mumu.

Finally here’s Charlie XCX in a black sequin Tommy Hilfiger. We’ve seen this dress from so many designers! Someone phoned this in, but it’s not bad overall. I bet Addison Rae wishes she had this gown instead.

David Harbour Lily Allen Marriage

David Harbour on how Lily Allen’s daughters inspired him to propose


David Harbour appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote Stranger Things and the Black Widow movie. I guess Jimmy is back to desk and couch interviews now, things really are returning to how they once were. The first thing Jimmy did was congratulate David on getting married. David and Lily Allen surprised most of us by getting married in Las Vegas last September during the pandemic. They posted some pictures to their social media from their wedding, but beyond that, neither spoke much about any of it. However, on Kimmel, David opened up a bit. He said that he and Lily had actually gotten engaged before lockdown, but it was Lily’s daughters, Ethel and Marnie, who inspired him to make things official. David said he married Lily so her daughters would know what to call him.

David Harbour made it official with Lily Allen due, in part, to some accidental advice from the British singer’s two young children.

The Stranger Things star, 46, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday, where he spoke about how Allen’s daughters Marnie Rose, 8, and Ethel Mary, 9, whom she shares with ex Sam Cooper, played a role in the couple’s decision to wed in a low-key Las Vegas ceremony last September amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We got engaged right before the pandemic. Then the pandemic hit and nothing was happening,” Harbour said of his plans with his partner, 36.

“We were riding around beginning of pandemic — she has two kids, these beautiful daughters, 8 and 9 — and we were riding bikes out in the country trying to figure out what we were gonna do for the next year or however long it was going to take. And the little one was riding along and she was going like, ‘David, dad, David, dad.’ Because the D got her confused,” he recalled. “And the older one got very upset with that, which I understand. She was like, ‘He’s not our dad! He’s not our dad!’ ”

Harbour continued: “And then younger one was like, ‘Well what is he? He’s kind of our dad.’ She’s like, ‘No he’s not, he’s our stepdad.’ And she goes, ‘What is he?’ And she goes, ‘He’s just some guy in our lives!’ ”

According to the Black Widow actor, that conversation confirmed it was time for him to take the next step.

“I was like, ‘I need to marry this woman,’ ” Harbour joked. “Because the emotional fallout … “

[From People]

If you watch the clip on Kimmel, it’s really funny. David is a great storyteller. But I kind of think there’s an element of truth here. David and Lily had a unique rollout to their relationship. It’s become obvious they aren’t doing it for anyone but themselves. Remember when they first took up, they were hanging all over each other in the streets? I really thought that was going to be their brand. But their honeymoon phase matured and we heard very little from them. They didn’t disappear, just kept to themselves mostly. David clearly became involved with Lily’s daughters, that was apparent on their social media, but he was respectful of their father, Sam Cooper. So I think when he heard Marnie call him “some guy in our lives,” it was funny, but he also wanted to prove to them he was in it for the long haul. If that message was more important than the bells and whistles of a big ceremony, why wait? Maybe David saw the chance to prove his dedication to Lily and the girls right then and there. And the wedding looks like a lot of fun. I’m still in love with Lily’s wedding look. I think everyone go the wedding they wanted.

David said both Marnie and Ethel still jokingly call him, “some guy in our lives.” I love it. It’s like a pre-teens way of keeping the new parent in line.

On how she lost a lot of weight lately:

‘I just eat a lot of crisps, I’m not really eating a lot of proper meals [while on tour]. I think it’s touring and dancing and probably, you know, the not wanting to eat room service thing. I don’t really like food being mass produced, you look at those kitchens and they’re huge just I don’t like it.’

… says Lily.

Beyonce Responds to Solange/Jay Z Fight…Sorta

Beyonce Solange

Beyonce posted four photos of her sister on Instagram this morning. (Photo:

Solange Knowles deleted almost all shots of Beyoncé from her Instagram, but Bey‘s taking a different approach. This morning she posted four images of her with her sister– as well as one of her at the MET Ball with Rihanna, whose party was allegedly the cause of the fight.

-Oh, and Beyoncé may have had her wedding tattoo removed. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?

-Meanwhile, TMZ has a story about Solange and Jay Z shopping for jewelry together at Mr. Flawless yesterday. They’re sticking to it, even though Mr. Flawless himself told Wendy Williams they weren’t in his shop.

-Whatever was the cause of the elevator fight, Wendy Williams is determined to get to the bottom of it! She has a pretty compelling theory that seems to combine Jay‘s history with Rachel Roy with a bunch of blind items.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are letting their kids plan their wedding, which means it’s going to be either Disney or paintball-themed.

-The rumours continue to swirl that Brad Pitt might star in True Detective Season 2. He and Angelina keep talking about working together again. Could you imagine if they both signed on?! I would seriously need to stock up on smelling salts…

Justin Bieber is being investigated by the Los Angeles police for attempted robbery after allegedly snatching a cellphone on a mini golf course. Sigh.

-Where there’s Miranda Kerr, there’s drama. Her new boyfriend had a knock-down, drag-out fight with his best friend in the middle of the street.

-What feud? Ryan Murphy insists Naya Rivera and Lea Michele are both returning to Glee next season. Of course, who even knows what’s happening next season after last night’s dramatically low ratings. Even The Originals beat it!

-I’m so glad Rachel Bilson is wearing shorts on her Health cover. It’s her thing.

Miley Cyrus claims that her recent onstage rant  (“I’m gonna tell those motherf–kers that broke my heart, particularly one, to suck my fat d–k and to enjoy hearing this song for the rest of your life”) had nothing to do with Liam Hemsworth.

-Hallelujah! Two and a Half Men will be put out of its misery after next season.

Lily Allen says she turned down a role on Game of Thrones because she didn’t want to have any awkward scenes with her brother, who plays Theon.

-Meanwhile, this alternate ending to Tyrion‘s big courtroom speech is priceless.

Kristen Stewart is a music video director now.

-CBS announced their fall schedule and surprised everyone by passing on How I Met Your Dad.  CBS boss Nina Tassler told reporters there were “elements of the pilot … that didn’t work out” and she asked the creators to retool it, but they refused. Considering all the flack they got from the HIMYM finale, you’d think those guys would be open to some constructive criticism.

-Speaking of the fall TV season, here are the trailers for the new shows coming from TBS/TNT and ABC. Selfie looks particularly terribleJohn Cho and Karen Gillan both deserve so much better. And ABC continues to come up with the worst names for shows ever. Shonda Rhimes’ latest series starring Viola Davis looks like a winner, though.

Nicole Kidman‘s Grace of Monaco debuted at Cannes to scathing reviews.

-I feel like we’ve seen the Gucci gown Blake Lively wore at Cannes many times before.

-And now there’s going to be a James Franco documentary because of course.

Olivia Munn is reportedly dating NFL hunk Aaron Rodgers after splitting from Joel Kinnaman. I don’t even know who that is but I’m assuming it’s a downgrade because HOLDER!

-Meanwhile, here’s the Deliver Us From Evil trailer with Olivia Munn and Eric Bana.

-This is so sad: the director of Searching for SugarMan is dead at 36, possibly by suicide. That was my favourite documentary last year.

Prince William hosted a star-studded event last night. I’m obsessed with Emma Watson‘s lip colour!

-This roundtable with the cast and crew of The West Wing is awesome, especially when they start bitching about the long days. Says Bradley Whitford: “The hours on that show were so bad. I mean, just horrible. I remember… saying, ‘The invisible carnage of the unf**ked wives and the children not being read to is just wafting out.’ ”

Andy Samberg’s SNL promos are predictably goofy.

Chris Martin‘s rep is shooting down rumours that he’s dating Alexa Chung. And reps never, ever lie.

Tom Cruise is reportedly stepping up his pursuit of Jessica Chastain for Mission: Impossible 5.

-Meanwhile, the new Edge of Tomorrow trailer repeatedly kills Tom Cruise. Someone clearly knows what the people want!

Watch This: Lily Allen’s Video for ‘Air Balloon’

I still can’t get over how much I love this song. It’s a little MIA ‘Paper Planes’ derivative, but only in the slightest way – but it’s all around REALLY listenable. If this is a taste of what Lily Allen has to offer on her new album, I’m all in (though I always have been a fan).

The video was shot on location in Cape Town, South Africa and directed by someone called That Go. I’m not generally a fan of music videos and prefer just to listen to the songs, so it’s no surprise that the video does nothing for me. The song itself, though… so good.

What do you think of ‘Air Balloon’?

Lily Allen on Music Comeback: ‘I Was Bored at Home with Kids’

lily allen

Lily Allen is back in the spotlight, and pop music fans are excited. I know I can’t wait to hear her new album. But why did Lily – who swore she was done with the music industry for good – decide to come back? The last we’d heard upon her retirement, she was ready to spend her time concentrating on being a wife and mum. Turns out, that wasn’t so fulfilling after all and she really missed being creative.

Talking to, she revealed:

“Why did I choose to come back? I ran out of money! No, I’m joking! I thought I’d be a really happy mom just sitting at home, playing with my kids. That was my dream.

“I love my children, but I’m a very impatient, busy person naturally so two babies, neither of them can talk, it was quite boring! Staying at home all day talking to people that can’t talk back.”

“I didn’t realize how much of a creative person I am and that I need somewhere to put my creativity.”

I’m glad Lily was so honest (as always). I think a lot of people would feel guilty admitting that just being a mother wasn’t totally fulfilling in and of itself because they’d be afraid it would make it seem like they didn’t totally love their kids, which is silly. You can love your kids and want to do something for yourself, too – which all people with common sense know, of course. Love me some Lily Allen.

Also, ‘Air Balloon’ is a really good song.

Lily Allen: Of course I’d rather look like Kate Moss than look like myself | lily allen

On the pressure of looking a certain way:

Of course I’d rather look like Kate Moss than look like myself. I wish I didn’t feel like that and I think the reason we feel like that is because of the imagery we’re fed all the time.Women are still expected, in some weird way, to kind of sit there and look pretty, and not talk.

‘So often, when women say things that are outspoken, or  as I call it just saying things, people jump on that and try to make us look stupid for having an opinion. That doesn’t happen with men. Come on, we’ve done feminism. People are aware of it. Can it just happen now?’

… says Lily in Elle Magazine.
