Random Photos Part One

Three parts today.

Apparently Kate Middleton is too polite to say what the rest of us are thinking about her official portrait. It is just not her and looks not great at all.

Lady Gaga seems to have shrunk to Snooki proportions.
Miranda Kerr at a photoshoot in LA.
Advanced photobombing. This is a person who must be a geometry teacher.
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone laugh about Josh Brolin's arrest record.
Rihanna is very very skinny.
Sarah Jessica Parker and one of her twins. The other probably got the nanny.
Speaking of kids, here is Hilary Duff with her son.
Taylor Lautner went out on another date with his high school sweetheart.
Vanessa Hudgens with yoga pants and UGGS. It is the Hollywood uniform.

Love the photobomb -- now that's creative :)

MISCH said...

I know, keep saying no more Uggs...but they are so warm and comfy..

If I were Kate I would demand that portrait be destroyed.

Seachica said...

Vanessa Hudgeons must have a high monthly paps bill. There is no other explanation for her being photographed so often still.

phoenix said...

Kate's portrait is hideous, and makes her look at least a decade older than she is. The royal family needs eye checkups to have let this fly.

nudibelle said...

rih is VERY skinny
that boy is no good for you, rih
Molly, you in danger girl

Amber said...

@MISCH - move to MN and you can get away w/it for functional reasons ;)

That painting is horrendous. The painter is obviously talented, but they did not flatter Kate in the least.

*karen* said...

I cannot believe that they allowed that portrait to be released and didn't redo it. Did the artist have her pose while she was still ill from her hospital stay?

KPeony said...

Her hair looks grey, her eyes look tired, it looks like she just farted and is pretending like she doesn't smell it and her nose looks big.

What did she do to that artist to deserve this?

greenmountaingal said...

Uggs are comfy. So are yoga pants. I've been known to wear yoga pants with a cute top and heels to dinner. Expandable pants are key for pigging out.

Kate looks so old in portrait. I hope she can get a redo.

I don't find Ryan Gosling or Emma Stone attractive.

Miranda Kerr looks fabulous.

Where has Gaga been?

LottaColada said...

OMG who added all those bags under Kate's eyes?! They aged her quite a bit.

Lautner is still dating women?

discoflux said...

Did I enter a time warp and Kate Middleton's been missing for 30 years and this is the age progression photo from a milk box?

DBZee said...

Dear lord, did Wills have a bitter ex who happened to be a portrait artist? That painting is *awful* and not even close to what she really looks like. Maybe Queen mom doesn't like her after all, to let that hideous piece of work go public.

Awesome photobomb!

Heh, reveal! Ryan Gosling's got your back, Emma!

jw11 said...

Is SJP the mom who only likes on of her kids?

Frufra said...

I totally agree that Kate's portrait is too dark, but I feel it really went wrong around her left cheek area. The right side of her face (her right, not our right) looks like her; the left side doesn't, IMO.

SingBlue said...

The Royal Family need to hire Cecilia Gimenez to fix that painting for Kate.

A virtual Friday Cocktail to the reader who figures out why!

NapAssasin said...

EXACTLY what I thought that implied also. That totally gives me the sads every time I think of that blind.

Frufra said...

Isn't Ms. Gimenez the person who "fixed" some old religious painting - and by fixed, I mean ruined? Sorry, too lazy to google up the deets.

Amber said...

@Sing is she the lady that "fixed" that fresco in the church?

SingBlue said...

Frufra is correct. Ms Gimenez was the 80+ lady who decided to fix Ecce Homo, or the Fresco Jesus which had been slowly rotting in a Zaragoza church for over 100 years.

She must've got herself an agent, as last I heard she was trying to claim a cut of tourist receipts from revenue from daytrippers flocking to see the mess.

SingBlue said...

(Amber - you were also correct. As it's a virtual Friday Cocktail, I'll stretch to two!)

greenmountaingal said...

Hahaha I get it! That would be awesome!

Sarah said...

I think this is actually a reveal on the father that doesn't want all of his kids. This implies that mom has one and the nanny has the other...not dad.

goes in circles said...

Is Gaga really that short?!

Lulu G said...

Gaga brought me to this:

We represent the lollipop guild, the lollipop guild, the lollipop guild and in the name of the lollipop guild we'd wish to welcome you to Munchkinland.

Vicky said...

Am I the only one that thinks Taylor Lautner looks cute with that girl and that possibly, just possibly he's into her? That twinkle in his eye is either for her- or some hot guy walking by his car. Also- I finally broke down and got Emu boots, because they're made in AUS and not China like Uggs. And they are delicious and my formerly frozen toes thank me for it. Why people in LA think they need them is beyond me, but this New England girl is loving th squishy heat these little lambkins produce. Ahhhhhhh....

YoMismo said...

I think MI5 has to do something with the painter, poor Kate. Yes, the portraits seems to have been worked out by Cecilia Giménez who, totally OT, presented the last 12 bells (las doce campanadas) in new year's eve in a Spanish TV network (neox, if you are interested, 1% of audience, btw), she is rentabilizing the masterpiece she made with the Borja (village in Zaragoza, Spain) ecce homo.

I'm surprised TLautner's sweetheart is actually a female.

LetLoveRule said...

All of the VS angels stand like that, in that exaggerated posture which I guess is supposed to be flattering?! In heels, no less. Seriously, they're doing it in every photo and every appearance. It must be in their contracts. I hope VS is going to pay to fix their spinal problems in a couple of years! Hell, they probably have pain already.

Their Pilates teachers must CRINGE.

MBK said...

Clearly, the royals should've hired the artist who did Kramer's portrait.

Agent**It said...

Enty, you missed the best play date pic of the day :

Sherry said...

Exactly my criticism of the portrait Kpeony.

Damn, I missed the virtual cocktail.

Did Gaga also forget her pants and just wore her stockings?

Jessie said...

Such an awkward stance by Miranda Kerr.

Lautner looks super happy with his friend. There's definitely love there whether it is romantic or not is their business.

H said...

I had no idea.... her costumes always led me to believe she is very tall..

canadachick said...

off with that artists head ! Thats horrible.

Robert said...

That has to be some elementary school kid impersonating Lady Gaga, right? Or maybe looks it because she's wearing flat shoes? Wow!

Mango said...

@ Vicky - It was 57 degrees in L.A. last night. Cold enough.

I actually laughed out loud at the portrait of Kate. If I were her I'd be mortified. They need to wrap that bad boy up and put it in the attic and bring it down in 20 years.

whocaresnow12 said...

The artist either loathes Kate, or is just a horrendous painter.

LottaColada said...

IKR? I bet it's like 50-60 degrees in LA and it's considered Ugg weather. Meanwhile here in NY I can see my own breath when I talk on my porch. 30 degrees is still pretty decent for winter here in the Northeast!

Renoblondee said...

The way Miranda is standing makes her body look like a transvestite and she has got a fabulous body normally!

Erik said...

That portrait of Kate is atrocious.

Taracu said...

I thought the same as @Sarah. It seems almost a reveal on the mom who the father is never with the kids bc he didn't want them.

candibugbug said...

The portrait of Kate looks haunted.

Taracu said...

I thought the same as @Sarah. It seems almost a reveal on the mom who the father is never with the kids bc he didn't want them.

All about Eve said...

Another newyorker here @ Lotta! I also got Emus las year and they were nice and cozy.

bonnie blue-blade said...

57 degrees is cold? It's 38 degrees where I am and it's pretty mild for January...on the east coast

Liliana Rose said...

It looks like Kate, just ten years from now (or after having her first ever real job: motherhood). At least some royal or representative for the family "okayed" the end result; you know the "unveiling" is not the first time the family or subject sees the portrait... for obvious reasons. Either way they will have a new one made soon due to public response.

Lola said...

Taylor Lautner is ridiculously hot (acting ability aside)

They should put that portrait of Kate away and bring it back out as her official 50th birthday portrait.

Kowalski said...

Emu boots are made in China. They just do everything to distract you from that fact.

Love From Australia, I think are the only major brand made in Oz?

Kowalski said...

oh, but it's not about keeping warm, its about regulating the heat. blah blah blah. I'll shut up.

LaLa said...

Rihanna's head looks ginormous!

Sunny said...

That picture of Hilary holding her baby is reminding me of when Kramer couldn't bend his legs because his Sergio Valente jeans were too tight

I want my hair to look exactly like SJP's in this photo. But first I must grow out my unfortunate side bang situation. Why did I do that? Grrr!

For the 2 people who may live near me: Kate Middleton's portrait is reminding me of the Cardiff Kook situation

Kloie said...

Is that how she gets out of the car? She is trying ridiculously hard to be noticed.

E Gee Be said...

@sunny, anyone who can throw a Sergio Valente reference into a comment section is a-okay in my book, side bang or not. Just keep working the braid, even just for the bang, it will be grown out in no time....

sylmarillion said...

@singblue, Michael K already fixed it for you :)

Gaga was always small, it's just that she wears ginormous heels most of the time so you don't notice.

Get yourself together, Rih. Seriously.

Hilary's baby is sooo cute!

I detest that pose Miranda is doing.

Mooshki said...

Oh, come on! 57 degrees is shorts and tank top weather!

Anna Namiss said...

Uggs are the best! Mine lasted from 7th grade to 29 years old. How many other shoes can last that long? Plus I dare you to find a better pair of shoes for walking on the beach. The sand can't get in, even if your feet get a little wet the moisture can't get through, your ankles are encased in warm soft fur, no drafts or sand getting in anywhere! Camping, early school mornings, beach walking, running to the store, and they look cute with jeans, what's not to love? Sure they're not $500, foot cutting, foot cramping, freezing cold, easy to slip and fall in, easy to twist an ankle in, lower back cramping, blood blister creating, s&m bondage for your feet and won't make strangers drool at you and imagine you in bed with them, but why would you want that anyways?

marine said...

Actually it's been very cold in Los Angeles...maybe not east coast cold but colder than what we're used to. Nothing wrong with keeping warm...

tamarind said...

Thank you enty. you have inspired me to do a portrait. an oil of kate middleton that will be 150xtimes better than that thing....she looks so,,,,tired? it was prob done from a pic of her where she looks drained.stressed.

Katie O. said...

The photobomb thing isn't really that impressive. If you can see the cameraman in the mirror, they can see you.

I wonder if the portrait of Kate is supposed to be able to represent her for years to come. So they put some age on it so that, in 30 years when people look at it, people don't crack up about how young she looks.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

That photobombing via mirror has become a thing, with the main difference being nudity. People will list a piece of furniture on Craiglist or eBay, get naked, then photograph the furniture, being sure their naked selves show up in a mirror or other reflection.
