Talk about eye candy. Two of my favourite beautiful people looking beautiful – it doesn’t get much better than this. I watch too many British films for my own good and first noticed Rebecca Hall in Starter for 10, an adorable film adaptation of the eponymous novel by Mike Nichols starring James McAvoy. Jon Hamm needs no introduction, but I am pleased to report he will be burning up the screen as the delicious Don Draper in a week or so when Mad Men returns on the 25th to dazzle us with politically incorrect awesomeness and beautiful outfits.
Rebecca Hall and Jon Hamm star in Ben Affleck’s old-school cops and robbers thriller The Town due in theatres early September.

Against the comforting, neutral slate of the wilderness, she defines herself. In the cool snow, she revisits who she has been. Among soft fur branches, she becomes who she will be.
This season is about those times when we abandon what we’re told we should do, and instead we do what we feel. We take the time alone. We retreat. We step boldly into a quiet place. We look at ourselves in a clear mirror or a lake, and we confront our fears and our histories. We emerge more whole. We embrace the present.
Sophisticated and gentle, the lily & jae autumn/winter 2010 collection tells a story through colour, texture and shape.
From silken dresses to cashmere coats, this collection is suffused with warm 90s palette of burgundy, grey, navy, black and brown. Fabrics are natural, yet versatile, and rich in both content and texture – from custom printed silk to cheek-soft cashmere.
Shapes are self-assured: timeless pieces with a hint of trend. Inspired by vintage silhouettes, and a touch of regionalism – warm wool-cashmere blends are made for the Canadian climate.
A confident collection with earthy appeal and a complete array of looks…
