amanda1 copy copy (Small).jpg

As Fashion Correspondent for E! Networks The Daily 10, Amanda Luttrell-Garrigas is not only a disher, she’s a dish. You’d think Viacom would give her a series. Until then, she answered our kinda new and semi-improved questions.

1. What’s the first thing(s) you read in the morning? My emails then nytimes.com
2. What’s your favorite guilty pleasure website? People.com
3. What job do you fantasize about having? The one I have only more of it.
4. Last movie you saw? Shampoo
5. Last book you read? Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
6. Best show legendary biz/movie star encounter. I’ve had many, Leonardo DiCaprio who is wonderful and Kate Bosworth who is lovely, Cate Blanchett who is so elegant and radiant, but Tom Hanks tops my list. We crossed paths on the shuttle bus to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation carnival. He is a force of nature.
7. Proudest media moment? I’m working on it.
8. Ever had a brush with the law? Describe. Nope. I’m the good girl.
9. If you got a unicorn what would you name it? Intrepid Lavinia Shenkunde of the African plains and Irish Moors
10. What does your TiVo think about you? It thinks I love football… hmmm maybe it thinks I’m my husband…

17.What natural talent do you wish you had? A more flexible body
18. What’s your theme song? It changes depending on the day. Today it is the theme song from Star Wars. Nobody does it like John Williams, except maybe Alexandre Desplat
19. Do you believe in love at first sight? No. But I am a romantic.
20. When’s the last time you volunteered? Where? This morning at my daughter’s school.

RADAR LOVE: FBLA Goes to the Party

MRoshan_022107_2 reduced.JPG

FBLA went to Radar’s party at the Standard Hotel last night and had a surprisingly good time. There’s always that moment, when fully dressed, one thinks, “To hell with it”, and decides to climb out of the pumps and stay home and eat in front of the tv.

But we went and were glad we did (although David Carr’s predictions were way off.) The magazine’s check-in chick had actually heard of FBLA. She directed us towards the PR guy who pointed out Maer Roshan, Tinsley Mortimer and Fabiola Beracasa, and more importantly, the bar. The Patron tequila people thought a solid ice bar would be just dandy, but they were wrong. We spent a great deal of time dragging people over to meet the half-frozen bartender, just to make sure she didn’t die of hypothermia.

Chatting with the boys from Patrick McMullan, we learned that they’ll be shooting the Vanity Fair party and they didn’t need a date for that, thanks. Clint Spaulding, besides shooting for McMullan, is working with the Maysles, which made him the coolest person in the room, not that he knew it.

HuffPost’s Julia Allison and her cute blonde friend, Via Osgood, were trying to get people to look at her camera and yap about Radar. She’s got a unique approach–look a little lost and maybe someone will help you. We steered her to the man-candy: Mickey Kaus, Andrew Breitbart and Jay Alexander. We rescued Matthew Belloni, editor of Hollywood Reporter Esq.–or maybe it was the other way around, as she thought he was an agent, with CAA or Endeavor.
