Let me tell you about Mariah...

Mariah Carey can:
Wear sunglasses at night...
Find friends that are even bigger Divas then herself...
Shop at any designer store, at anytime, all over the world...
Make belief that a bikini is actually a genuine form of attire...
Walk her dog wearing designer sunglasses, heels and Herve Leger dresses...
Show no modesty when it comes to bragging about her wardrobe size. Unlike other celebs she feels free to state that she has about "1000 pairs of designer shoes".

Rihanna Kids Choice Awards

While most of the female celebs who choice to play it on the safe side, Rihanna rocked all out as she attended the Kids Choice awards. Cutesy polka dot top, jodhpurs, sky high heels and lashings of colour on her lips and nails made her look the it!

West Of Kanye

Clooney Likes His girls "Classy"

Wow! George Clooney sure knows how to pick em! One of the most desired bachelors of our time, has landed himself one of the most sexually available girls out there.
Scandalous photos of Clooney's girl, Sarah Larson have surface all over the internet. Larson, 29, apparently gets paid to attend parties as a high class call girl, in other words-act like a slut. Photo's include her posing expictilly, licking other girls behinds, making love in public...and the list goes on.To make it worse, these photos were only taken late last year, when she was already dating with George. She's even wearing a dress George bought for her in the photo where she's up against the wall with some strange man wrapped between her legs. It doesn't look like much "acting" is going on in these pictures. Poor Clooney...will he ever get married?

It Must Be Love

Party of Five and Ghost Whisperer star, Jennifer Love Hewitt, is certainly in love with her new Prada Fantasy Fairy bag. She's even got herself a wallet to match!

Miss Hewitt has been seen toting around the bag nonstop ever since it reached her possession, and who could blame her?
The gorgeous eclectic designs which still feature on the Prada Website, have caught the eye of many including quirky actress Tilda Swinton. And if counterfeit website are anything to go by, this bag is certain to become a hit!

A Note From Jillian Lewis

BPR asked Jillian Lewis her advice for Season Five hopefuls and this is her response:

I will be at the casting in Miami this week. I am really excited especially because I've never been there before. Charleston was amazing. What a beautiful city filled with so many beautiful, nice people.

Advice for season 5 hopefuls:

Bring your best work, represent it with pride and integrity. If the judges respond negatively, defend your point of view professionally and responsibly. If the judges respond positively, be humble and grateful. Keep in mind that it is about the designing but it is also a television show, so present yourself well, look your best and bring your personality. If you make it onto the show, prepare yourself with focus and stamina because it is NOT easy. Best of luck to season 5 hopefuls.

BPR Interview with Tim Gunn in Los Angeles

Los Angeles-based Field Reporters, Jonathan and Alitia Trimm provide BPR readers with a close look at the Season Five hopefuls and a great interview with Tim Gunn.

Thank you Jonathan and Alitia.

When we arrived at the W hotel in Westwood, there was already a line of about thirty designers standing ready to fill out paperwork and move up to the auditioning process. There was a great mix of men, women, and experience levels waiting in line. We approached a few of the designers to question their motivation for auditioning and to understand their design aesthetic.

Click here for the interview with Tim.
Yes, he will declare that Christian Siriano is the new Marc Jacobs!

*This collage was done with my own pictures from last weekend
I've spent this long weekend (Friday to Monday) in Barcelona. It was really great. At first, when in the plane, I was a bit dissapointed because I thought it would be bigger, but it was just a feeling, when you are down there, it's big enough. I was prepared to visit a lot of places in such a short period of time, so that's why I bought the guide which is down. The books on the left... ok, I must admit I bought them in Barcelona, I couldn't avoid it, and in fact it was only five!
Jean Nouvel, the architect who designed the Agbar Tower (on the collage, the one which is very similar to Norman Foster's one in London), won yesterday the Pritzker prize, which is similar to Nobel but only for architecture, so I couldn't choose a better moment to visit it! Gaud� impressed me greatly, especially the G�ell Park, it's amazing! Also "La Pedrera" the building in the last picture, is totally worth seeing it. It's so different to any other building which I've ever seen, the waves-shape on the facade and those balconies, I wish I could live there!

He pasado este finde en Barcelona, y me lo he pasado genial. Cuando estaba en el avi�n me sent� un poco decepcionada porque pens� que ser�a m�s grande, pero bueno, una vez que puse los pies en la tierra se me pas� esa sensaci�n, y obviamente ahora pienso que es lo suficientemente grande como para ofrecer todo lo que uno necesita para vivir, y m�s. He comprado una gu�a para poder visitar todos los sitios de inter�s r�pidamente ya que solo ten�a tres d�as.

El premio Pritzker de arquitectura fue a parar este a�o a las manos del franc�s Jean Nouvel, el arquitecto que dise�� la torre Agbar, (en el collage la pod�is ver, es el �nico rascacielos que aparece). A m� me recuerda demasiado a la torre que hizo Norman Foster en Londres (Swiss Re Tower) y sinceramente me gusta m�s la de Foster, pero bueno, esta no est� nada mal, lo que me impresion� fue ver en el sitio en el que est�, ya que pens� que estar�a en el centro de la ciudad.
La obra de Gaud� para m� fue sin duda lo mejor de Barcelona. El parque G�ell es realmente impresionante, y bueno, uno de mis edificios favoritos era La Pedrera, y ahora que he tenido la oportunidad de verlo in situ me gusta m�s a�n. Es tan perfecto! con esas formas tan sinuosas, y esos balcones! los que en �l viven son muy muy afortunados.

It was totally necessary showing you this. Mediterranean style, we had brunch in a cool place next to the Cathedral. They offer Spanish pintxos, (typical from Basque Country) and they were so good! Spanish omelette, bread and chorizo, ham, and the rest, you just can see it.
Uno de los d�as hemos almorzado en un bar que est� al lado de la catedral y que es de pintxos, y bueno, he puesto la foto porque estaban todos tan ricos, que creo que merece la pena hacer una referencia a ese lugar, por si alg�n d�a vais!

La Pedrera, designed by Spanish architect: Gaud�

Shopping never looked so good

Victoria Beckham is officially to glamorous for me. She has reached untouchable status in my books, with her incomparably polished outfits, slick hair and celebrity BFF's.

She is one of the few women in Hollywood that can get away with being completely dolled up to bambi foot around her favourite designer boutiques donning oversized sunglasses, from her superb eyewear line and carrying a covetable Hermes Kelly Longue bag.

Let whats said, be said...Victoria Beckham is still my girl...
