Posh and Lily So David and Victoria Beckham are both working for Emporio Armani now. Victoria has become the face of their range of women’s underwear. Yes she looks fantastic in the new photos of the Spring/Summer collection but the photos were only published after she approved extensive Photoshop!! So they basically airbrushed everything, her ‘mummy tummy’ was removed, her legs lengthened and apparently she wouldn’t go barefoot because her feet are so ugly from bunions yuk! So don’t worry girls she doesn’t really look anything like she does in this picture here. Victoria will make a cool 12 million from the campaign; David’s deal was worth 20 million. Do
you think that’s fair!!! All they have to do is pose in their underwear, attend a couple of Fashion shows and wear the gorgeous free clothes… Nice work if you can get it! Meanwhile, Lily Allen has been back in the tabloids recently after being spotted in the Caribbean with some silver haired bloke… Who turns out to be none other than Jay Joplin a millionaire art dealer who at 45 is 22 years older than her. She was also spotted out and about in London in this fox fur Prada hat, and her necklace has a machine gun on it...Its all for the attention isn’t it!! But I don’t think she will be smiling when PETA get a hold of her!!!
viva penelope! Spain’s favourite actress Penelope Cruz has already had a fantastic start to the year. The new Woody Allen film ‘Vicki Cristina Barcelona’ in which she stars alongside Scarlett Johansson, has already won her numerous awards, including a BAFTA this month for best supporting actress and she has been nominated for an Oscar for her supporting role. She first achieved fame in several Spanish hit films including Jamon Jamon, and Todo Sobre mi Madre. In 1997 she starred in Abre los Ojos which in 2001 was re-made into Hollywood blockbuster Vanilla Sky, which starred Penelope and the weird and wonderful Tom Cruise, after appearing in the film together they went on to have a tempestuous four year relationship which finally ended in 2004. In 2006 she starred in the Spanish film Volver receiving wonderful reviews and being nominated for both Golden Globe and Screen Actor Guild awards. She is the first Spanish actress to ever be nominated for an Academy Award for best actress, for her role in the film. Vicki Cristina Barcelona is due to be released in Spain this February and I can’t wait to see it, because although most of the film was filmed in Barcelona, I have heard rumours that parts were actually shot in one
of our beautiful towns here on the Costa Blanca, Altea. So fingers crossed for the Oscars this month. I think you all know I am rooting for Kate Winslet to win Best Actress for her role in ‘The Reader’ and I would love Penelope Cruz to win best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘Vicki Cristina Barcelona’ I am also a huge fan of the new Spring/ Summer 2009 collection that she has brought out this season with her Sister Monica for Mango… Check it out at www.mango.com I’ve already got a couple of knockout dresses on order!
talented hottie of the month Robert Pattinson, 22 is an English actor and musician. I recently saw him in the new film adaption of Twilight, based of the novel written by Stephanie Meyer, and fell madly in love with him after five minutes. Robert plays a vampire in the movie which has become a world wide hit since it was released in November 2008. He is also becoming well known in the music world after writing and performing two songs on the Twilight soundtrack... ‘Never think’ and ‘let me sign’. I can’t wait to see him in the next two films of the Twilight series….

the oscars W
ell it’s Oscar time again… Gorgeous Frocks and Huge Rocks will be making their way down the Red Carpet!!!! I can’t wait to see what everyone will be wearing. This years 81st Academy awards will be held as usual in Hollywood and are going to be hosted by the ‘Sexiest man Alive’ Hugh Jackman. Of course, what we are all waiting for is to see whether Kate Winslet will be taking home the Oscar for best actress!!!! I really hope she does because she deserves it... Poor girl always gets nominated for something but always goes home empty handed, it would be great for an English actress to take the gold statuette back to Britain. So here are my Predictions for the 2009 Oscars:
Best actor in a leading role Brad Pitt The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (one of the strangest films I have seen recently but Mr Gorgeous Pitt was Fantastic… Best actor in a supporting role Heath Ledger – The Dark knight (without a doubt, he has to win, all of you that have seen the film will agree, he played an amazing part) Best actress Come on Kate Winslet, for her part in The Reader. Best film It has to be the Indian rags-to-riches love story ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. I love this film I have already seen it twice it has action, suspence, a love story... Everything you need for a great film…. So let’s see how my predictions get on at the Academy awards on the 22nd February!!! I will be reporting live from the Red Carpet….. Yeah, I Wish!!!!!!
