The Oscars redcarpet 2012

http://www.tmz.com

The 84th Academy Awards are about to get going. The stars have walked the red carpet, most looking the part… some not so much. Some of the stars I caught a glimpse of included Michelle Williams (amazing in her red dress), George Clooney and his beautiful girlfriend Stacey Kiebler, Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow. People are saying she is a best dressed nominee, in her Tom Ford outfit tonight. She looks great.

Glenn Close also looked amazing tonight. She looks great in her Zac Posen designed outfit. Stacey Keibler is wearing Marchesa, as is Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock.

Trevor Noah to feature on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this week


Congratulations to South African comedian, Trevor Noah. The star, who is currently in the USA, will make an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this coming Friday. Big news for him, the industry and what an awesome way to kick off the New Year. He’ll be featured alongside Hollywood royalty Glenn Close and another guest Van Hunt.

We’ll no doubt get to see the episode on CNBC Africa on DStv soon. I’ll find out when it airs so that both you and I can set our reminders to see how Mr Noah gets on. Nice one Trevor, on your way to super stardom!

UPDATE: You can catch Trevor Noah on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this coming Tuesday at 9pm, channel 410 on DStv.
