Australia: New Girl (liked) New Dress (not liked)

                                              Natalie Imbruglia from Australia

pictured above: Natalie Imbruglia, Australia’s up and coming singer/actress as she causes a “hateful stir” during the opening of the David Jones store in Sydney Australia on “Boxing Day”….  ( Note:  Stylefrizz called the dress a “Granny” dress but the dress is actually the “Fireball Tear Dress” by Alice McCall…So there!).

England: Newly Back

 Kate Winslet

She’s Back:  Kate Winslet 

 Kate “has” been out of the spotlight but are we glad she’s back…. (acting in movies that is).  Look  for Miss Winslet in  “Romances and Cigarettes”, “All The Kings Men” and “The Holiday”….

France: New Miss France

                                                                                                Miss France Valerie Beague

Because Miss France (Valerie Beague) did a racy photo shoot for Entrevue Magazine that included a shot of her in a Christ-like pose in a swimming pool, she is now banned from competing in Miss World and Miss Universe beauty pageants.  She will, however,  get to “keep her crown”….  P.S.  The “new” non-crucified Miss France “hails”  from the Polynesian Islands… ( Talk about crossed up! ).

England: New Hit Movie

Helen Mirren

 pictured above: Academy Award Winner, Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren is now starring in “National Treasure: Book Of Secrets” which in only two weeks of release, has already made $70 million dollars at the box office!…. (“You go Queen!”)

pictured above: Winner Jessica Springsteen

Did you know that American canter Bruce Springsteen is being sued by an Olympic equestrian (Todd Minikust) for allegedly backing out of a contract to buy a $850,000 horse for his daughter Jessica?    It seems that Jessica is a budding young rider who participates in (and wins) riding competitions held in “The Hamptons” (see picture above).  Will an equine dispute resolution be forthcoming? ….(“Frankly Scarlett I don’t give a damn” …Whinny!)
