PS oh my goodness i almost forgot…right after leaving work i had to run down to the ATM machine on hollywood blvd (at labrea) i saw this woman putting some stuff in her trunk (a nice bmw) and i thought she looked familiar – i quickly realized it was joan van ark (do i have any knots landing fans in the house?) i approached her and said ‘ms. van ark?’ she turned around and i told her how much i enjoyed seeing her on nip/tuck this season – she was very gracious by saying thank you and shaking my hand – she said ‘oh it was silly’ i mentioned how much fun the show was – in addition to being one of my favorites! gosh i love having little random celebrity sightings – you just never know when they’ll happen!
When Glamour debuted in 1939 as Glamour of Hollywood, it was a fashion tome devoted to getting the movie star look. Now, the magazine will honor its roots with the March “Hollywood” issue. Featuring everything from A-list actresses to female power players leading the charge in Hollywood, the March issue celebrates women at the top of the entertainment industry. The special “Hollywood” issue, which hits newsstands February 12, will be published simultaneously with the launch of glamourfilmfest.tv, an online independent film festival showcasing short films by female filmmakers.
