Another day, another viral Ben Affleck interview.
It was a busy week for celebrity style with the Golden Globes, but with dozens of before and after parties, there was plenty of incredible celebrity fashion on tap. Here are our favourite red carpet dresses of the week.
The Aussies were taking over L.A. this week. First up, Abbie Cornish in DVF at Diane Von Furstenberg’s Journey of A Dress Exhibition Opening Celebration held at LACMA. Looks like it may have been borrowed from the American Hustle set, but we love it!
Over at the G’Day USA Black Tie Gala, Elle Macpherson glittered in gold.
Naomi Watts was the epitome of old Hollywood glam in a delicate pale blue Marchesa dress.
Cate Blanchett continued to reign over Hollywood, this time in silk Prabal Gurung.
OK, it may not technically be a red carpet dress, but Lupita Nyong’o wins by a mile in her Peter Pilotto top and shorts at the Film Independent Spirit Awards nominations.

Don’t we love to look at celebrity hairstyles? At their best, they inspire us to take a photo to our own stylist and say, “Make me look like this!” At their worst, they inspire us to say, “Oh no – why did she DO that?”
Here’s a look at five of our favourite celebrity hairstyles and the lovely ladies who wear them. Are you in the mood to try something new?
Michelle Williams’s pixie cut
This actress had some tough competition from Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus, but the adorable blonde has been wearing the style for a while now and always looks totally perfect. We’ve heard that Williams is growing out her hair for a movie role, but can’t help but hope she’ll get her pixie back after it’s over!
Lea Michele’s trendy fringe
The star of Glee sports a long blunt cut with a thick fringe, setting her apart from most current celebs that have lots of layers. The look works for Michele, and plays up her beautiful dark eyes. Other beauties who know how to rock a fringe include Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and Jessica Biel.
Jennifer Lopez’s long layer
J.Lo has had long hair for several years now, but she’s never looked better than she does right now, with her lengthy, flowing layers falling over her shoulders. The layers give this style just the type of versatility this multi-faceted fashion icon needs. Other stars with long, luscious layers are Blake Lively, Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon.
Solange Knowles’s gorgeous curls
Beyonce’s baby sister knows how to get her own individual look by flaunting the natural texture of her short hair in tiny ringlets. Other girls with curls we love include Rihanna, Zoe Saldana and Jennifer Hudson. Curls are at their best when bouncy and shiny.
Cameron Diaz’s bouncy bob
The blonde beauty claimed to be unhappy with her shorter ‘do, but later fell in love with both the look and the easy maintenance. We will probably see Diaz with long hair again soon, but the shorter style is definitely a great look for her. Kiera Knightley and Julianne Hough have also impressed us with their beautiful bobs.

Third marriage for J.Lo.
JLo still searching for lurveSerial wedder Jennifer Lopez has reportedly married new love Marc Anthony on Saturday. According to US Weekly, the couple married in front of about 40 guests at her home in Los Angeles. It has been 6 months since the split of the infamous ‘Bennifer’ and only five days after the divorce of Marc and his ex- wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres. Although representatives of Marc and J.Lo weren?t available for comment, friends said everyone was surprised about the wedding. “She didn’t hardly tell anyone?, the unidentified friend told US Weekly. “It was a lovely low key intimate affair for the closest friends and family.” This is the third marriage for Jennifer, and bets are on as to how long these nuptials last.
Broadway’s man of the moment, Hugh JackmanBoy from Oz makes us proud!
Congrats are in order to Australian spunk Hugh Jackman! He has taken out Best Actor in a Musical at the 58th annual Tony Awards. His portrayal of the flamboyant Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz has been wowing audiences on Broadway. Hugh thanked his wife, actress Deborra-Lee Furness for being a great “musical theatre widow” and dedicated the award to Allen’s memory. Other attendees at the awards were Renee Zellweger and Nicole Kidman.
Cameron flying soloHas Cameron dumped Justin?
Rumours are rife over the relationship between Cameron Diaz and her toyboy Justin Timberlake. According to News of the World, the Charlie?s Angels star has broken up with the pop star because she thinks he’s holding back her career. Cameron came to the realisation two weeks ago when the pair were in Cannes. Justin tried to persuade her to become his live-in-lover, but she didn?t feel ready to make that kind of commitment. Friends say, ?It’s over. The problem is, she isn’t really taken seriously in Hollywood because she is dating a pop star. Cameron feels she stands a better chance of taking her career to the next level without him.? Cameron is currently vying for a spot on MTV?s next season lineup. Her project, Trippin? features herself and her famous mates as they travel to various countries to spotlight environmental issues.
The future Mrs BloomOrlando Bloom to propose
Sorry ladies, Orlando Bloom is about to be taken off the market. According to Teenhollywood, the Troy spunk is preparing to ask actress girlfriend Kate Bosworth to marry him. Orlando has been telling people on the set of his latest film that he is likely to propose when Kate flies out to visit him later in the month. He is currently working on Ridley Scott?s latest film Kingdom of Heaven which is about the 12th century crusades. (On a side note, he has been forced to wear a chest wig to make him appear more credible as a blacksmith turned warrior!) Sources on the set say, ?He is very traditional, so he will literally kneel down before her.” Kate has told him she wants to be proposed to in an exotic location, so Orlando has decided Morocco is the perfect place. Sssh?let?s just hope that Kate doesn?t find out about the surprise.
Johnny won’t ruin Vanessa’s good name
Flat note Johnny DeppJohnny Depp says he would never ask his Vanessa Paradis to marry him as it would ruin her ‘perfect name’. He said he often thought about proposing to the mother of his two children, but the name issue had held him back. “It’s so perfect and so beautiful,” Johnny said. “It would be a drag to stick her with Paradis-Depp. It’s like a flat note.” But he said he would not hesitate if she was to propose to him: “She’s the woman of my life. I would do it in a second.” Oh what a guy – so talented and thoughtful too! And so old fashioned. Not every bride chooses to ditch her surname, Johnny.
She’ll always be J-LoLopez regrets calling herself J-Lo
Jennifer Lopez has ‘fessed up that she regrets giving herself the name J-Lo. She made the admission during an interview for the US show Inside the Actor’s Studio. The New York Post reports that Lopez was not shy about stating her favourite swear words (here’s a hint, it rhymes with bucking door) even though her mum was sitting in the front row. She referred to Guadalupe Lopez as “my mom, the millionaire” – a reference to her million dollar jackpot win on the dreaded poker machines at an Atlantic City casino earlier this month. When host James Lipton asked J-Lo: “If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive?” She replied: “‘Nice going, you did your best,” and “There are no paparazzi here.” Nice to see that is all she is worried about in heaven!
Glowing with love, Kate MossKate Moss’ secret love
Rumour has it Kate Moss has fallen in love with hunky British actor Daniel Craig. Kate, 30, and the Tomb Raider star have been dating for a month after meeting through mutual friends. Kate is said by pals to be “besotted” with Daniel, 35, who starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in last year’s movie Sylvia. And the multi-millionaire cover girl has told friends the romance is serious. “It was love at first sight for Kate,” said a pal last week. “Daniel is bright, charming and leads a very low-key life – just what Kate’s looking for at the moment.” The friend said: “It is serious, and they both know it. Kate doesn’t want anything to rock the boat. She is blown away by him.” The friend added: “Both he and Kate want to keep things low-key. “But the sexual chemistry between them is so potent that you’d be blind not to see it. Some things you just can’t keep quiet.” The pair met after Daniel, who has an 11-year old daughter from a brief marriage in his 20s, starred with Kate’s pal Rhys Ifans, 37, in the new film Enduring Love. The news is not good for Kate’s estranged partner Jefferson Hack, father of her toddler daughter Lila Grace. He still had hopes of reviving their four-year relationship. Magazine boss Hack, 31, moved out of their London home two weeks ago, but the couple reportedly remain “good mates”.
Daryl HannahPolice quiz Daryl Hannah over Kill Bill poses
Actress Daryl Hannah has been questioned by police after she struck kung fu poses at the LA premiere of Kill Bill: Vol 2. The actress, who reportedly gets nervous when meeting the press at glitzy events, decided to hide behind her assassin character Elle Driver. She told Teen Hollywood: “I usually just race into theatres at premieres. But this time I thought I would walk in like Elle with her cocky attitude and stuff. So I went through the press line and I was standing on my car and doing kung fu and giving them the finger or whatever. Then when I came out of the theatre, there were five policemen waiting for me, wanting me to take a breathalyser test.” Hannah said they talked to her for a minute or so before letting her go: “They said: ‘Well, you seem okay.’ They couldn’t seem to understand that I was just acting. It was weird.” Only in Hollywood!
Madonna, mind the gap!
Has Madge become the Material Merchandiser? According to London’s Guardian Unlimited, Madonna has finally gone all commercial on us! Following the well-trodden path of fellow fashion-endorsing celebs, the Material Girl is set to spruik for US clothing label Gap. Both Madonna and hip-hop funkster Missy Elliot are the latest recruits for the retail giant?s upcoming next campaign, aired in the US in later this month. Word has it that TV commercials will feature Madonna’s Eighties dance hit Into the Groove while the queen of song bops along in khakis, t-shirts and jeans. No one at Gap would go into the specifics about the deal but needless to say it?s bound to be worth more than a few free pairs of cargo pants to old Madge.
J.Lo is soooo faithful
Jennifer Lopez wants the world to know that she was never unfaithful to her second husband Cris Judd! She?s also made it clear, in a Reader’s Digest interview published last week, that she definitely didn’t sleep with new fianc? Ben Affleck until she had separated from husband number two. In case you were wondering, (which we weren?t) J.Lo wants the world to know that she was, in fact, “a very faithful person.” Lopez and Affleck, one of Hollywood’s most-talked-about couple, met in 2001 on the set of the soon-to-be released comedy Gigli, but according to the 32-year-old singer/actress/entertainer/model she and Judd were already having problems at that point in their marriage. Lopez filed for divorce from Judd in July 2002, after less than a year of marriage, and became engaged to Affleck, 30, four months later. Lopez said that after two failed marriages, she was working hard at her new relationship. “We talk about everything (with) brutal honesty? And when you do that nothing’s left to chance,” she said. Let?s hope so for everyone?s sake!
Brolin leads Lane down aisle
Looks like actress Diane Lane is ready to give up the single life – she has just become engaged to spunky fellow thesp Josh Brolin(Goonies). The Unfaithful babe said yes to Brolin?s proposal on the fourth of July weekend. The couple, who like to keep their private lives private have not revealed any details about proposal nor the forthcoming nuptials. Bummer we love news of a good romantic proposal!
Hopefully it will second time lucky for both of the actors who have each taken a stroll down the aisle once before. Lane was hitched from 1988 to 1994 to Highlander actor Christopher Lambert, with whom she had a daughter, Eleanor. Brolin, who grew up in Hollywood, (his father is legendary actor James Brolin) was married to actress Alice Adair from 1989 to 1992. He was also engaged to Matt Damon?s ex- British actress Minnie Driver – the pair set to tie the knot in 2001. The nuptials were called off, and with no official reason given, the rumour mill spun into overdrive citing a supposed spat between Minnie and Brolin?s step-mother, none other than the Queen of Divas herself, Barbra Streisand, over the wedding plans. Ohhh wouldn?t you have loved to have been a fly on the wall during that catfight?
Honeymoon baby for Russ and Danielle
The recently hitched Mr and Mrs Crowe have finally confirmed, through TV host Ray Martin that they are in the family way. Oscar-winner Russell Crowe, star of epic films including Gladiator, and A Beautiful Mind is set to star in his biggest role to date, that of dad. New wife Danielle is reportedly 14 weeks pregnant and apparently feeling all the effects. Last year, the former Miss Spencer vowed to make Rusty a dad before his 40th birthday, and with a bundle of joy due in January 2004, she is going to make good with her promise. Crowe turns 40 on April 7, next year, which is also the couple?s first anniversary.
J.Lo to sue
Looks like Jenny from the Block will be making an appearance in court in the near future ? she?s started legal proceedings against her former manager, Benny Medina. The actress/singer/model/entertainer is seeking millions of dollars in back-commissions claiming her former manager negotiated deals on her behalf without a license. This is a violation of the Californian Talent Agency Act, and if Medina is found guilty, it will void any contracts he negotiated for her and therefore she shouldn?t have had to pay him any commission. Phew!
Medina is not taking this lying down, hitting back at Ms Lopez by issuing the following statement “The accusation that I misappropriated money from Jennifer Lopez is both untrue and offensive… Lopez, by making false allegations against me, is now trying to add me to the long list of people whom she has used and discarded after she took from them all she could get.” He continued, “It is unfortunate that Ms. Lopez is using a Labor Commission suit as a means of mitigating her outstanding financial contractual obligations to my company and me… I look forward to the opportunity to have the world come to know the real Jennifer Lopez. I will defend myself against these lies and will collect from her every dollar for which I am owed.” Lopez is also seeking to dissolve any remaining partnerships with Medina and Handprint Entertainment. Owweee sounds like J.Lo may have bitten off more than she can chew this time!
Ed and Christy expecting?
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Ed Burns and Christy Turlington with a baby carriage? The gorgeous couple, who wed last month in San Francisco, after an extended courtship are apparently ?with child?. The fab two were spotted at birthing classes in New York. And with a new addition to the family on the horizon, the Burn-Turlington household are no doubt occupied with thoughts of baby names, and suitable godparents for the little one. There?s no shortage of divine celebrities amongst the couple?s inner circle. Their recent nuptials included A-list invitees like Sting and wife Trudi Styler, Vin Diesel and sexy Irish rocker Bono, who reportedly filled in for Turlington?s dad on march down the aisle – her father having passed away from lung cancer two years ago. Wonder if the U2 frontman will be given a guernsey as the baby’s godfather too?
Maguire says Spider-Man 2 ‘better’
Sensational Spider-man Tobey Maguire has reportedly revealed that the forthcoming spidey sequel is ?better? than the original. “I’m really happy with it … It’s going to be better than the first one. The story is a lot better,” he said last week from LA during a press conference for his new film Seabiscuit. Maguire, who shot to fame last year playing the superhero, said filming on the sequel was about two-thirds complete. In the sequel, Maguire’s character, Peter Parker, enrols as a university student, but two new villains, Dr Octopus and the Lizard, are hell bent on his destruction. The next arachnid installment is due to be released in the US in June 2004. Guess that puts pay to those nasty rumours doing the rounds that Maguire wasn?t going to be fit enough to be Spiderman again!
Demi?s boyfriend threatens to sue
BUSTED big time! Ashton Kutcher is threatening to sue the London Evening Standard for making up a quote about how much he likes “f***ing” current girlfriend, and mother of three,Demi Moore. The quote in question went something like this, Moore “was the hottest actress in Hollywood when I was growing up. I was in love with her when I was 10. Now it’s great, I’m (bleeping) her.” But the young star of Dude where?s my car? and That 70?s Show wants the paper to publish a retraction and issue an apology for publishing the fabricated interview in its July 7 issue – or suffer the legal consequences. “If the Evening Standard fails to provide Mr. Kutcher with an appropriate retraction and apology, he will evaluate all of his legal options,” “This is an example of some of the outrageous conduct that is committed by the media,” said publicist Matt Labov. “It is obvious that the Evening Standard wanted to publish attention-getting quotes from Mr. Kutcher about the relationship and, having none, simply made them up.” As if the press ever do that Mr Labov?
