Premier power couple and noted dynamic duo Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly throwing a bash of Olympian proportions two days before the 2012 London games begin.
In a surprise marketing maneuver, the male half of Brangelina is rumored to be the new face of the world’s most iconic perfume. That’s right, Brad Pitt is shilling Chanel No. 5.
- Jacob & Co., the jeweler famously name-checked in practically every rap song from the early-00s, has apparently knocked off Brangelina‘s engagement ring, though they claim to have already had a similar style in their bling repertoire. [Fashionista]
- Who else but Ralph Lauren would design the US Olympic and Paralympic teams’ opening and closing ceremony looks? The US Olympic Committee revealed the quintessentially American designer’s vision for the latter yesterday and naturally the only thing missing is a gold medal or two. [WWD, sub req'd]
- Fran Drescher is an ordained minister and has taken to marrying gay and lesbian couples, which the Nanny explains thusly: “Well, you know I’d already married a gay man, so now I might as well marry a few gay men.” And that’s what we call shtick, kids. [NYT]
- Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt of legendary celebrity couple Brangelina are reportedly engaged, since Angie has been spotted sporting one hell of a rock on her ladyfinger that Brad allegedly designed. Since they’ve repeatedly said they wouldn’t get married till everyone — gay and straight — had the right to, here’s hoping Fran Drescher performs the duties for these two queens. [Fashionista]
Hollywood’s wildest night was a bit on the tame side as the 2012 Golden Globes lapsed into occasional coma. Host Ricky Gervais was more well-behaved and seemingly less drunk this year than last — a bad decision on both counts — though there was some well-played shtick regarding Jodie Foster‘s Beaver. The stars, however, came prepared with their own jokes with the best comeback of the night courtesy of Best Original Song winner, Madonna. After being introduced by Gervais, Madge quipped: “If I’m just like a virgin, Ricky why don’t you come over here and do something it? I haven’t kissed a girl in quite a few years…” A collective snap arose from the Beverly Hilton after the Material Girl dropped that sass bomb, though to be fair, she’s been on a roll as of late. The rest of the night was a series of mild shock — mostly thanks to Angelina Jolie‘s
inspiring scary skeletal frame — and even milder surprises thanks to a few upsets in the TV category where shows no one watches nabbed some of the top prizes while in the film category. No one was shocked, however, when Meryl Streep won Best Actress in a Drama, except Meryl Streep, who garnered another Globe for that reaction on her way up to accept for The Iron Lady.
