How To Throw An English Garden Party, According To Gwyneth Paltrow

Back in August, Gwyneth Paltrow invited some of her nearest and dearest to the Hamptons to celebrate all things Stella McCartney and Goop.

Lucky for us, that fancy English garden party was filmed and edited down to a 76-second experience.

The video was made live on Thursday by the folks at Goop, along with Paltrow’s letter about her designer BFF and their collaboration:

“Sometimes in life you get a girlfriend who becomes like a sister. Someone who really sees you. Who is as honest with you as they are loving. Who shares a similar world view, who has similar values. Who is a bit of a life raft when you live in a country that you lovingly adopt, but is not your own. Who also happens to be hilarious and a bit naughty and is constantly trying to get the balance of everything right, just like you are. Who is also one of your favorite designers ever, who has a ruthless eye and makes perfect, perfect things. Stella is that girl and so much more. I convinced her to do a collaboration, a very mini capsule collection of some beautiful, covetable things.”

The behind-the-scenes post also has cute photos of other famous friends like Naomi Watts, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cameron Diaz, as well as recipes for pot pies and fish and chips.

Paltrow can next be seen in the comedy Thanks For Sharing.

Naomi Watts: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

Naomi Watts Diana

Naomi Watts is a good actress. There, I’ve got that out of the way. Although originally born in Shoreham, Kent, Watts began her career in 1986 appearing in The Love Alone, before setting on that familiar path of Australia-based actors – soaps. She then went on to supporting roles in films such as Flirting (good film, you should see it) before properly exploding onto the Hollywood scene with David Lynch’s surreal mind-f**k Mulholland Drive.

Since that role, she’s had an up-and-down career, churning out both brilliant films and absolute clunkers. She’s obviously extremely talented – you don’t get Oscar nominations for no reason – but like most actors outside of Daniel Day-Lewis, can occasionally fall foul of poor decision-making or a bad performance. From the advance reviews it appears she’s struck disaster again with Diana. For my money, this is a shame – most of the time, she can be relied upon to deliver excellent performances, and I hope this article makes that apparent.

Of course I am also obliged to point out her poor performances, and Diana not-withstanding (I don’t mention it in this because I, like most of you, haven’t seen it), there are a number of those sprinkled among the gems.

So without further ado, let’s get down to our weekly column. Keep in mind, there’s a SPOILER WARNING in effect.

NAOMI WATTS opted for a white Versace gown at the world premiere of her latest film, “Diana.”

Hit or miss?

LMK 100570

Naomi‘s fashion choices are usually on the simple but elegant side, and she made no effort to break out of that formula when she hit the red carpet on Thursday for the premiere of “Diana”-the much-awaited biopic about the late, beloved Princess of Wales.

The actress wore a white Versace gown with an asymmetrical neckline, a keyhole bodice, and a thigh-high slit.

To complete the outfit, Naomi went with silver Chopard jewels, a black Edie Parker clutch, and black Christian Loubotin peep-toe pumps.

A simple updo and light makeup provided the finishing touches.

Naomi Watts Poses For Pretend Paps In Spain

naomi watts shooting commercial for el corte ingles

Lights, camera, action!

The magnetic Naomi Watts was spotted filming a commercial for Spanish department store El Corte Ingles in Madrid last Wednesday.

Dressed in a sequined turquoise gown with a high slit and with her golden locks styled in flowing waves, the 44-year-old actress oozed glamour and sensuality on set.

As always!

Judging by the photos from the shoot, Miz Watts was playing an A-lister on the red carpet assailed by dozens of paparazzi clamoring for that one perfect shot.

Hmm, sounds like a typical day in Naomi’s high-profile life.

Bet she didn’t have to reach too deep to be inspired for this role. Ha!

We can’t wait to see the commercial, but until then check out more behind the scenes pics in the gallery (below)!

Robert Pattinson Snags Another Indie Movie Role In Queen Of The Night

Cosmopolis has definitely helped launch Robert Pattinson‘s foray into big boy movie roles!

The recently single hottie has best been known for his role as Edward in the Twilight franchise up until this point, but we have a feeling that is all about to change.

R-Patz has been cast in Werner Herzog’s upcoming indie film Queen Of The Night, in which he’ll play T.E. Lawrence — the British Army officer who is the subject of the 1962 classic Lawrence of Arabia.

He’ll be acting alongside Naomi Watts, who is playing English writer Gertrude Bell.

The film will follow her adventures as a writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer and political attach for the British Empire.

Before that, we’ll see Pattinson continue to distance himself from the hoards of adoring Twi-hards as he begins production on the Australian Outback drama The Rover and military drama Mission: Blacklist.

At least his younger fans still get to watch Breaking Dawn – Part 2 before they lose him to art house cinema for good!
