Behind-the-scenes videos are fast-becoming more interesting than the ad campaigns themselves. Having trawled through videos from the likes of Kate Moss (Longchamp), Abbey Lee (Pop) and Lindsay Lohan (Purple), we were starting to get a little jaded by videos of the sort. That was until Twilight uber-hunk Kellan Lutz came on the screen.
Starring in the latest Calvin Klein ads, Lutz shows off his rippling muscles in a way that reminded us very much of Mark Wahlberg in those Calvin ads of the '90s. Lutz also uses the film to tell us a little bit about himself. He loves to swim and snowboard. He's a "boxers, not briefs man". He loved wearing nothing but the underwear on the shoot because, "Calvin Klein underwear just holds you together." All we can say is R-Patz who?
Last night's Golden Globes led into a few after-parties - including the official fete at the Beverly Hilton Hotel's Oasis Courtyard, plus an HBO event at the hotel's Circa 55 restaurant - and that gave us the chance to see partygoers who didn't make it to the red carpet. That includes Lindsay Lohan, who chose a sparkly hooded dress for the occasion (and also crashed a gathering hosted by the New York Times Style Magazine), and the likes of Ashley Olsen, Amanda Seyfried and Camilla Belle. Even actresses who did hit the awards ceremony, like Golden Globe-winner Chloe Sevigny, showed up to let loose. And if everyone could let loose while looking as good as Ms Sevigny in Christian Lacroix Haute Couture, then we should head to Beverly Hills parties seven days a week.
