The bag does hit Harrod’s in December at a £30 price, which admittedly lifts […]

Murdoch Press claims Sophie Anderton offered sex, drugs

November 24, 2007/23.52

The Murdoch Press, using an undercover reporter who almost goes under cover, reports that Sophie Anderton has resorted to vice (use your imagination) to help fund a property in Notting Hill. There’ll be enough moralists lecturing Ms Anderton on what is right and wrong but let me say one thing about the modelling industry: this sort […]

The Kin hit the Troubador with Josh Kelley and the Pat McGee Band

/22.55

[Cross-posted] It’s not all the time I hit the clubs. There are musicians who can attest to that—mostly because of deadlines or time frames of when they are going on and the distance I have to drive.    Recently the Kin toured with Josh Kelley and the Pat McGee Band for well over a month […]

Heidi Klum nuts over knockers

November 23, 2007/23.22

Heidi Klum, the German supermodel (I believe we may use that term) stars in a commercial for the telecast of the Victoria’s Secret show next month. The promotion sees Klum joking about her breasts, referring to them as ‘great knockers’, perhaps showing how British colloquialisms have crossed the Pond.    The show, which airs on […]

Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen: the next actress of note?

/4.22

I’m thinking ahead to 2008, as many folks in my shoes would. And I have had some thought about future celebs and who I wouldn’t mind securing for our pages.    When Lucire editor Laura Ming-Wong chose Bruna Tenorio as one of our faces for 2008 in issue no. 24, I noticed that models and actresses […]

The Tesla Roadster is ready

October 13, 2007/23.29

Here’s Lucire’s Car to be Seen in 2007, in production and available to the public. The Tesla Roadster might not sound throaty and grunty but for those of us who grew up with Knight Rider, I suspect we will not care. And the rich environmentalists and celebs who will buy one certainly won’t. You may […]
