Our favorite new obsession, Downton Abbey, won Best TV Drama Ensemble at the 2015 SAG Awards last night. Only a few members of the cast were on hand to accept the award but fan favorite – and recent Golden Globe winner – “Anna” aka Joanne Froggat was one of them. Where was the rest of the cast? We loved seeing them out of their early twentieth century attire. Congratulations!

The fashion year got a kick-start on Thursday night with the first annual Los Angeles Fashion Awards hosted by the Daily Front Row. The inaugural event was attended by a mixture of celebrities and musicians including Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Kanye West and two of Marilyn Manson’s exes: Rose McGowan and Dita Von Teese. Kerry Washington and Rachel Zoe were also in attendance. Stunning 19 year old model, Gigi Hadid, was named model of the year at the event.
Don’t sleep on these two sales at Gilt today – both are selling out already. L.K. Bennett is Kate Middleton’s favorite footwear – she’s rarely seen without her rose/nude colored heels. As we mentioned, items are selling out quickly – click here to start shopping now.
Proving she’s still relevant at 56 years old Michelle Pfeiffer is featured prominently in two popular songs right now. Both songs, released last year, have been big hits – consistently making the top 50 songs on iTunes and Billboard. The first song we heard her name in was Riptide by newcomer Vance Joy, who has said he loves her movies and that in the Fabulous Baker Boys she embodied the beautiful woman. In the next song, Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson, she is mentioned along side the lyrics white gold – likely referring to her role in Scarface where she played a cocaine addict. We are dying to know what she thinks of this recent adulation!
The video for Uptown Funk has been viewed over 100 million times on YouTube. The song actually mentions Michelle in the opening line. Mark Ronson told Billboard they knew they were onto something exciting when they wrote those specific lyrics.
We love this song and the video for Riptide does not disappoint – it’s very creative. It’s already been viewed over 43 million times.

Bradley Cooper was in our city – Washington DC – last night for the premiere of his much anticipated new film, American Sniper. The premiere took place at the US Navy Memorial, where he mingled with some of our local “celebrities” such as Vice President Joe Biden. Bradley shared with a local reporter that he attended Georgetown University so he is familiar with the District. The Washington Post reported that the actor was sighted having dinner later at Cafe Milano. He’s such a great actor – we’re looking forward to seeing the movie.
We have been a fan of Sia since her hit song “Breathe Me” came out a few years ago. And, we thought her Chandelier song and particularly the video were very clever. However, the new video starring 12 year old Maddie from Dance Moms and Shia LaBeouf – sparring around in nude bodysuits in a cage – is undeniably disturbing. Without question it brings to mind pedophilia. Obviously, we are not the only ones who thought this as Sia has now released a statement apologizing:
“I anticipated some ‘[pedophilia]’!!!’ Cries for this video. All I can say is Maddie and Shia are two of the only actors I felt could play … These two [warring] ‘Sia’ self states, ” she explained.
Personally, we think the video should be taken down. How Melissa, Maddie’s mom, approved of this is astounding … fame is one thing but putting your daughter into that position is disconcerting. Here are some of the images from the video. What are your thoughts?
