On my way to work last week, I lost my cell phone on the bus. Naturally, I panicked but I was secretly giddy because it meant getting a new cell phone. I’ve been obsessed with getting my paws on LG’s sleek Prada cell phone, which operates very similarly to the iPhone. (Prada and LG’s way of saying, “Screw you, Apple!”) Sure, the phone is driven by design and not function, but who the hell cares as long as it’s slim and beautiful – that’s how I like all things in life anyway!

But fashion is a cut-throat world and there’s always a young, prettier model competing for attention. This is where the new Dior phone comes in. The $5000 (!!!) phone comes with a “My Dior”, which is a small clip so you don’t have to rummage through your purse. It’s kind of like Mini-Me to Austin Powers, if you will. The colors remind me of the Dior Addict lip gloss although I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Don’t laugh but it’s a little too gaudy for my taste. In all fairness, if you pay that much for a phone, it damn well better be gaudy!

There’s also a Motorola RAZR by Dolce and Gabbanna decked out in gold and a Samsung phone by Armani. Luckily, or unluckily, the bus company found my cell phone so you won’t see me walking around town with a haute couture phone for now. On a brighter note, surely this is a sign that fashion can be found anywhere, anytime. Hallelujah!

Have you been drooling with envy over the headbands Blair Waldorf (aka Leighton Meester) wears on Gossip Girl? Well, don’t worry that pretty little head of yours because Queen B’s headbands are designed by Jennifer Behr and you can buy them from her website! She has a whole array of fab headbands including the ones seen on the show. They don’t come cheap but some of the lower-end ones might give you a taste of what it’s like to be an Upper East Side princess.

I previously wondered if it was the beginning of the end for Agyness Deyn. I hate to say I told you so. Burberry is parting ways with the Brit after reports that Mario Testino handed down the orders. A source told U.K.’s Metro that:

“She was just a flash in the pan. Last year she was quirky but now she is challenging Moss in the fame stakes by positioning herself everywhere. That kind of popularity just hasn’t sat well with Mario, who is looking for something different.”

Agyness won’t disappear into oblivion but there are a few factors working against such as her age. Don’t fret for this blonde pixie though since she still has a “burgeoning” music career to fall back. Hee. Being let go from Burberry does explain why Rosie Huntington-Whiteley accompanied Christopher Bailey to the Met Gala instead. Word is Rosie (as seen prowling on the Victoria’s Secret catwalks) will be the new face of Burberry. And the plot thickens! 

Poor Agy. It’s always a tough pill to swallow when you’re booted for someone younger. Maybe she can write a new song about it? Something like “Burberry Heartbreak”  has huge potential I think.

This is for my boyfriend who thinks Chanel Iman is “hot”. New York Magazine recently interviewed the young model and I particularly enjoy the “candids” of Chanel on the website’s slideshow. As for rumours about her nabbing the cover of Vogue Italia all-black issue, word is that she may share the cover with Iman.

She has the man (Johnny Depp), the voice, the look, and now she has the contract. Kirsten Dunst has been bumped as the spokesmodel for Miu Miu and will be replaced by the French beauty instead. Is there anything this woman can’t do?

People.com just released photos of Blake Lively and Penn Badgley in Mexico’s Mayan Riveria getting cozy. It’s been circulating for awhile that the Gossip Girl costars are romantically involved, but finally they’ve been caught red-handed! Their relationship might cause tension on set if/when they do split, but in the meantime, as Lo Bosworth of The Hills once said, “It melts my little black heart!”

How underwhelming was Serena’s big secret on Gossip Girl last night? But nevermind, there were a lot of other things to love on “Woman on the Verge”.

  1. Michelle Trachtenberg as Georgina Sparks (“Sarah”) is brilliant. Did you see how she stopped crying and hiked her eyebrow up in trumph after Dan turned his back at the concert? She IS the Wicked Witch of the Upper East Side.
  2. I love Blair and Chuck together, especially as they hatch plans to take down the Wicked Witch. They’re so perfect for each other and to me at least, I think it’s obvious that they want to have a romp in the sack. Go for it, I say!!!
  3. Hallelujah! The writers kindly allowed us a break from the insufferable Jenny Humphrey. Not that I don’t like the girl, there’s just been a lot of focus on her drama-rama the last few episodes.
  4. Wouldn’t you love to see the collection of headbands Blair has worn? This episode was no different with Blair in a pretty white headband.
  5. And finally… my favourite part of the episode was the “gang’s” pep talk with Serena. Blair called them the Breakfast Club!!! Best of all, after everyone announces their respective crimes, Chuck only needs to say this: “I’m Chuck Bass.” Swoon
