Last Saturday night was my sister's birthday. To celebrate, she invited a group of people to her house at 8 p.m. At 8:30, we turned off the lights to observe Earth Hour. I catered the informal event.

The model photos are magnificent, but it's the behind the scenes snapshots that have me ogling over the twenty Casting Call finalists that made their way to San Francisco (with chaperones) to have their mugs captured on camera. I was lucky enough to attend the fun and kid-friendly photo shoot that had dozens of toys, grilled cheese sandwiches for pint-sized palates, shoulder rides and even an impromptu hurdles session for one of the cuties who wanted to show the photographer his athletic ability!
After meeting a few of the lil darlings, I don't know who to choose! It's up to the public to vote so check out this slideshow of Gap's showstopping guys and girls to help you make your decision!
A little while back we came up with 10 ways to turn your wedding into a foodie fantasy. We created this list to help Sabs, a Sugar gal, host her very own foodie wedding! All of her dreams came true last Friday, Aug. 8, when after four years of engagement, she was married! Here, I take you on a behind-the-scenes look at her fabulous foodie ceremony and reception.
On Saturday night FabSugar hosted her annual summer luau. Instead of throwing a regular luau, Fab's party had a sophisticated, chic black and white theme. While Fab created the look of the luau, I was in charge of the snacks and specialty cocktail. To take a look at the food and decor of our memorable party, click the "Start" button.

I know a lot of you didn't get to see the "Grey's Anatomy" season two gag reel before it got pulled from YouTube the first time around. Luckily, there's another chance: One of my favorite parts, which shows the actors' reactions after flubbing their lines, is back online. Check it out while you can, but be warned: Some of the actors and actresses (Ellen Pompeo, I'm looking at you) get a little saucy with their language when they've screwed up a scene, so best to get the kiddos out of the room first. And if that's not enough "Grey's" for you, don't forget to check out my recap of this week's episode and this awesome photo gallery from the May 3 episode that also serves as a pilot for "Private Practice".

Thanks to Defamer for pointing me to the "Grey's Anatomy" gag reel, a set of three behind-the-scenes videos that have mysteriously appeared on YouTube. The videos are heavy on the inside jokes, with writers and backstage staff reenacting some classic "Grey's" scenes and generally poking fun at themselves. Unfortunately, parts 1 and 2 appear to have been taken down, so if you got to watch Katherine Heigl's fake on-set freakout, consider yourself lucky.
Meanwhile, if you hurry, you can still watch part 3, which includes a montage of drinking scenes (hint: there are a lot) and some writers' room antics with a cardboard cutout of Patrick Dempsey. To watch the clip, read more
Yesterday Children of Men received a number of Oscar nominations, including Achievements in Cinematography and Film Editing, both of which I think are fully deserved. Director Alfonso Cuaron has been lauded for the complicated, highly-choreographed scenes in the film that were shot without interruption — particularly a battle scene in which Clive Owen and four others are riding in a car and an angry mob descends upon them.
So I was excited to find a very cool behind-the-scenes clip that explains how they pulled off the remarkable sequence. With the help of a complex device surrounding the vehicle and a pivoting camera inside, the entire scene was filmed without any cuts. The amount of preparation and cooperation required of the cast and crew to time everything just right is tremendous. You'll see what I mean if you watch the video, so read more
