Gwyneth Paltrow honored in Chicago

Jun 16 2013, 3:17pm CDT | by

Gwyneth Paltrow was honored at a prestigious gala in Chicago on Saturday night (06.15.13).

The 'Iron Man 3' actress, who recently released her second healthy eating cookbook, was thrilled to receive the annual Renaissance Award at the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute's (SAIC) gala.

Wearing a high-collared cream dress by Alexander McQueen, the 40-year-old Oscar-winner was joined by her actress pal Amanda De Cadenet at the event, titled 'A Summer Soirée with Gwyneth Paltrow,' at the Ritz-Carlton hotel, where she took to the stage to discuss her film choices as clips from some of her most notable performances were displaced on a big screen.

The 'Shakespeare in Love' star, who has two children, Apple, eight, and Moses, seven, with her rocker husband Chris Martin, also shared her artistic process and aspirations before being presented with her award by School of the Art Institute of Chicago President Dr. Walter E. Massey.

Director of the SAIC, Jean de St. Aubin previously said: "It is a privilege to honour Ms. Paltrow, one of the most versatile actresses working today, with the Gene Siskel Film Centre's award.

"The diversity of characters she has portrayed on the screen, from the deft romance and comedy of 'Shakespeare in Love' and "Sliding Doors,' to her heart-rending performances in 'Proof' and 'Contagion,' is truly impressive. Audiences have come to know Ms. Paltrow from the honesty and intelligence she exudes and we look forward to hearing about her inspirations and favourite memories when we celebrate her many accomplishments."

Tickets to the event, beginning at $400, sold out well in advance and all proceeds benefited the film programming and educational initiatives of the Gene Siskel Film Center.

Previous honorees include Robert Downey Jr., Reese Witherspoon, Jamie Foxx, George Lucas, Nicole Kidman, John Woo, Michael Mann, William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman.

Blake Lively’s Website Is Officially Here!

Jul 22 2014 12:03pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

The 2014 ESPYS - Arrivals
Time to add a new bookmark, darlings. Blake Lively’s lifestyle site Preserve is officially live as of today! Thus far, I’m hearing a lot of positive reviews mixed with some confusion about the spooky factor. I did warn you that the aesthetic would be a bit dark and spooky, loves, but some of you are still shocked at just how much of a Southern Gothic vibe carries through. And I’ve heard rumblings that the antique look of the photos, which seem to be run through the Nashville Instagr ...

Jay Z & Beyonce Are Consciously Uncoupling

Christian Dior: Front Row - Paris Fashion Week : Haute-Couture Fall/Winter 2014-2015
A few weeks back, the Internet lost its shit after Beyonce started changing song lyrics to oddly specific accusations of Jay Z cheating on her. And now comes word that they’re trying to pretend to be happily married long enough to make it through their “On The Run” tour which makes the fart-sniffing trailer about ridin’ and dyin’ together all the more ridiculous. Which is a goddamn impressive feat considering it already had Jake Gyllenhaal and Sean Penn playing a white g ...

The 2014 ESPYS - Arrivals
We are so lucky, guys -- and sorry, but it can't just be left that way. See, Blake Lively -- whom we actually do kind of admire around these parts -- started up a website, and while we'd known it was coming for awhile, we'd sort of been apprehensive about it possibly being all annoying and self righteous a la Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP website, chock-full of things we either weren't interested in the material consumption of, or that which we ...

Ryan Reynolds Attends 'El Hormiguero' Tv Show
This may be a controversial opinion, but I think that Vogue magazine’s heyday is far behind them. Their articles highlight the who’s who of nobody cares, and their style features are increasingly bizarre. But every so often even Anna “I’ve Had The Same Hair For 40 Years” Wintour gets something right, namely this month’s cover girl, Blake Lively. The notoriously private B opens up and admits that despite her lifestyle site, Preserve, not eve ...
