A Fashion Designer's Best Friend

Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with Kevin Federline? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a nameless extra in a music video? Have you ever wanted to witness the birth of artistic genius? Er ... okay maybe that one is stretching it a bit ... at any rate, here is your chance to fulfill two of these three wants ... Kevin Federline put out a call to all his homies on My Space and is inviting anyone in earshot to be a part of his music video:


C'mon ... who wouldn't want to be a part of Spederline history? Even DJ AM wants to be a part of the magic. The details are pretty sketchy ... all we know is that the video is being shot LIVE at Pure in Las Vegas this Saturday night. I'm guessing the Cheetos and Red Bull will be provided for you. If anyone does go to this shoot, I'd love to hear about it! Believe me, I'd go if I were gonna be in Vegas this weekend. [Source, thanks Glenda]

Since Britney Spears has been sequestered away preparing for the birth of her second child, I guess we'll have to content ourselves with Jamie Lynn Spears news ... which is fine by me, actually. JL harkens back to a kinder, gentler time and reminds us all when Brit was just an innocent girl herself. It wasn't long before innocence was lost tho ... how long before the same fate befalls little Jamie Lynn? Here are pictures of JL with her boyfriend from, what looks like, a tropical vacation locale:


They make a cute couple ... I'm hoping this dude turns out to be Jamie Lynn's Justin rather than her K-Fed. If this kid turns out to be an aspiring rapper I totally giving up on the whole Spears clan once and for all. [Source]

ATTENTION: PROJECT RUNWAY SPOILER ALERT WARNING

Wednesday night is, once again, my favorite night to stay home and watch TV. With new episodes of The Hills and Project Runway airing on the same night, I'm happy to sit in front of my TV to watch all the ridiculous drama. I'm bummed that The Hills is ending next week tho ... how ever will I get along without my weekly fill of Heidi's insipid antics? Sigh. Altho, props to her for finally dumping that a-hole boyfriend of hers. At least I'll have Project Runway to keep me entertained ... last night's episode featured, by far, my favorite challenge of the series so far. Designing for the latest hot fashion accessory is pure genius:


I absolutely loved this challenge ... those dogs were so cute ... all of them (well, except for Keith's fugly dog). I love how each designer picked out the dog that was an exact canine representation of themselves. Just ... brilliant! I don't know what sort of fairy godmother Bradley has looking over his shoulder but the fact that he not only finished a garment to walk down the runway BUT ALSO got praise for that garment (from Nina Garcia, no less!) was utterly stunning. He is a lucky, lucky dude. He seriously got the best birthday present ever. Keith is becoming more and more of an ass with each episode. I get that he's trying to be the new Santino but it's just not working for me. While Santino had an evil, maniacal flair, Keith suffers from just looking like a bitchy jerk. I'm not a fan. If Vincent designs one more hat I'm going to scream! I love that his dog tried to take his hat off right there on the runway ... the dog appears to be smarter than Vincent. I like Laura's designs ... generally ... but they all tend to look the same. She needs to get out of that fur-lined jacket thing ... she's beginning to strike me as a one-trick pony. I absolutely did not agree with the judging this week ... Uli's outfit was cute but I really liked Kayne's outfit best. Sure Katherine's design was simple but Angela's outfit was flat out ugly ... it looked like the ugly thing she was wearing herself. Her days are numbered ... she needs to G-O already. Incidentally, Vera Wang needs to go too ... it's not that I don't like her, I just miss Michael Kors' bitchiness. I'm not sure why Ivanka Trump was a guest judge ... she was very boring to me. She could've at least brought along her own dog or something. Whatev, I loved last night's ep ... I kept squealing at the doggie cuteness ... it really was my favorite challenge so far. Woot! Next week we get to see someone get booted from the show ... I can't hardly wait!!!! [Source]

Fox threw it's little Fall season party this week and brought out all their big guns ... including two of my fave Fox big guns, Kiefer Sutherland and Rachel Bilson:


While Kiefer looked a little ... worn out, Rachel was looking amazing. I'm actually surprised that The OC is still coming back for another season ... it really seems to have run its course. I'd really like to see Rachel Bilson get attached to another, more interesting project. Maybe she can score a role on 24! She's young and feisty ... I can see her working behind a desk at CTU. Can someone make that happen for me? [Source, Source]

Nick Lachey paid a little visit to MTV's TRL yesterday to debut his new video I Can't Hate You Anymore ... oh yeah, he was also on hand to spend some quality time with his new girlfriend TRL VJ Vanessa Minnillo and by "quality time" I mean "let's not stand too close to one another because we want to appear professional and not at all sexually involved":


The chemistry between Nick and Vanessa was totally nonexistent ... which makes no sense to me. They should've played up their relationship a little bit to make things more interesting. A kiss would've been nice. Without any sort of sexual tension, we were left to entertain ourselves with Nick's boring new video (click HERE to see it for yourself). With lyrics like, "Waaaa waaa/Booooo, hooo/Blah, blah blah", this song is sure to shoot straight to #1. [Source]

Scarlett Johansson was on hand for the NYC premiere of her new Woody Allen-directed movie Scoop, here are a couple pictures from the red carpet:


Blah! There's hardly anything to make fun of in these pictures. I mean, how many times have we seen Scarlett's shiny forehead and witness her unfortunate fashion choices? Where's the fun in that anymore? [Source]

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum has taken frightening to a whole new level ... they have decided that Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was the right candidate to serve as the model for their first infant wax statue ... behold the terrifying results:


Two-month-old Shiloh is the first infant re-created in wax by Madame Tussauds and can be seen with her wax parents standing over her at the international museum's branch in Times Square. A ticket to take a peek at what the museum calls "the world's most famous baby" costs about $30. Shiloh, whose lips are pouty like her mother's, rests in a woven basket in an African-themed nursery. Visitors can have their photos taken with the famous wax family, and $1 from each photo will be donated to UNICEF. Um ... no way would I want to get near these scary-looking things. That wax baby is freaky, y'all. Altho, if you would like to shell out the $31 bucks to get your photo with the wax family, I'd love to see it. [Source]

Prince Harry has really grown into a fine man, hasn't he? He keeps getting bigger and bigger every time we see him:


It looks like he, not his older brother William, is the proud inheritor of the Royal Family Jewels. They look very impressive. [Source]

Did you know that Harry likes the color pink? Why else would he choose to show the world his pink sock?


See, I could totally make a grossly inappropriate "pink sock" joke here but I choose to take the high road. I mean ... Prince Harry wearing an actual single pink sock is hilarity personified ... there's no need to take it into the gutter. [Source]

Pamela Anderson is either in dire need of raising funds to pay for her multiple weddings to Kid Rock or she has just completely flipped her shizz ... here are pictures of Pammy launching a new gambling website called PamelaPoker.com:


Pamela Anderson confirmed she's ready to tie the knot with Kid Rock in France. And California. And Michigan. And Tennessee. "I'm going to get married a few times this month to the same guy," said the 39-year-old bride, who wore a white veil pulled back from her face during a news conference Wednesday about her new online poker site, PamelaPoker.com. She said her nuptials to the rocker, whose real name is Bob Ritchie, will take place near St. Tropez, France. They are reportedly planned for Saturday. The former Baywatch star said the celebrations will also take her across the United States after the first ceremony. "We had to do Malibu, we've got to do Detroit, and we've got to do Nashville," she said. She offered no other details on the ceremonies. Asked how she's coping with her nerves before the big event, she replied: "I have two words for you: champagne." LOL! I love it. Well Pammy, I have five words for you: Congratulations! [Source]

Could it be? Is it true? Has Xtina Aguilera finally gotten rid of all of that horrible red lipstick that she has been smearing all over her face for years now? Check out these awesome pictures of Xtina coming out of The Ivy looking all nice and natural ... and compare them with pictures of Xtina and her old look:

Um ... sure Xtina looks kinda spaced out in these new pics, but she looks so much better than she used to look when she was heavy into her drag queen phase. She looks amazing with the natural, more muted color on her face. It looks like married life really calmed her down ... and I greatly approve. [Source, Source]

Awww check out these adorable pictures of Eljah Wood seeing off his girlfriend as she flew out of LAX earlier this week:


Our little Hobbit is all grown up. He hasn't grown quite as tall as his girlfriend but he's the man nonetheless. Cute! [Source]

What do you get when you come across a gaggle of Paris Hilton sidekicks and lackeys all convened together in a show of force on any given night in South Beach?


Hahahahhahaha ... yep, this is all you get. [Source]

Game time! Can you guess who these very ample and bulbous breasts belong to? It's not hard to figure out ... just stare directly at them and concentrate:


Click above to see who it is

You just know those things are stuffed with a whole lotta Big Macs and Quarter Pounders (with cheese). Can you correctly guess who it is? [Source]

And finally, Undented has unveiled the first look at the new Tori Amos box set of rarities, demos and b-sides titled A Piano: The Collection:


It really does look like a piano keyboard. Save your pennies, folks ... this Tori Amos box set, which is set for release on September 26, will set you back about $75 bucks. [Source]

Da News:
David and I got to spend the afternoon hanging out before he had to fly back to NYC. I had all these grand plans about cleaning up the apartment but that kinda never happened once I laid down on the couch. Yeah, I was pretty much dunzo for the rest of the day. Jim and I watched Project Runway together last night and that was pretty much it.

Tonight, Davey and I are going to see the Jonathan Larson show Tick, Tick Boom! which is playing at the Coronet Theater here in LA. This is the musical that Jonathan wrote before he wrote Rent. I have wanted to see this show FOREVER so I am very excited for tonight.

I also got a call to do a thing this afternoon ... I'll have deets when I get more info. That is all ... I'm out.
