Dress You Up In My Love

Thank you all so much for sending in all of your awesome Halloween pictures. It was so fun getting to see what you guys look like all dressed up for Halloween. Believe me, it was very difficult narrowing down the pictures to what I thought were the Top 5 Best Pix. I chose the pictures that spoke to me most ... but all of your pictures were very fun, very inventive and very cool to check out. I wish I could send everyone stickers but ... well, that just can't happen. So ... here are my picks for my 5 fave Halloween pictures:

Aren't they great? They're either funny, timely, well done or just cute. If you are one of the five people who sent me these pictures I will be emailing you for your addresses so I can send out your stickers.

As I said, I had a hard time narrowing down my picks ... so just for fun, here are the ones I chose for honorable mention:

There were a lot of Spederline submissions ... here are my fave Spederline pix:

There were also a lot of Jem and the Holograms/The Misfits submissions ... here are my fave ones:

And just because ... here are a couple sets of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

Once again ... thank you all for sending in your pictures ... I loved checking them all out ... I hope you all had a great Halloween and I hope we can do this again next year.


UPDATE: Here are pictures of some of my friends in their Halloween costumes ... they're just too good to not share ...

The Cereal Gang = Adam as Frankenberry, Jim as Lucky the Leprechaun, Jon as Count Chocula, Davy as Crackle, Jeff as Cpt. Crunch and Rachel as Boo Berry. Adriana as the Sand-Witch, Brian as Bert. Tony as the 80's Roller Boogie Boy and Lisa as the piece of Sushi. Ryan as Harry Potter and his friend Angie as Hermoine. Ultragrrrl and Josh as Spederline (Halloween '04). Matt and Wilia as Failed Super Heros Super Busy and Super Sleepy.

And JAKE made the best Frankestein EVER!

Soooo hot! What a fun Halloween!!!!!!!



Whoa ... it's a bird, it's a plane ... it's a whole slew of hot bloggers hanging out at a Halloween party. Check out blogbuds Matty, Bradford, Andy and crew gettin' into the Hallowe'en spirit:

Matty and the other heros look great ... Bradford as The Joker looks amazing ... and Andy WHO DIDN'T DRESS UP still looks cute ... but he's a poop head for not playing well with others. [Source]

Happy Halloween, bitches! You guys look great!



I Am Samhain

Happy, Happy Halloween ... Halloween, Halloween ... Happy, Happy Halloween ... Silver Shamrock:

It's Halloween, bitches! The danceparties are over and now it's time to get down to bizznazz ... it's all about the candy today/tonight. I hope you all have a fun and spooky Halloween. To all you pagans out there, Happy New Year!!! [Source]

There is a lot to cover today ... so let's get to it ... here are some pictures of Britney Spears and her dear baby Sean Preston as they are deboarding their private jet as they arrive in LA:

Booo! The baby is still covered up ... Hmm, K-Fed is nowhere to be seen ... I wonder if there is trubs in paradise? It is my understanding that things are not going well with our dear Spederline. I'm gon' have to keep my eye on them ... [Source]

One last Spederline thing, here is a picture of Kevin and Christian Audigier -- he's the main designer for Ed Hardy (also responsible for the Von Dutch designs):

Ain't he a pretty sight? Well, if you want Kevin's new look you can buy it at If you want the original, authentic Kevin Federline look then you can buy it HERE. [Source, thanks Patricia]

Check out these amazing pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal from the Jarhead press conference over the weekend:

Oh yeah ... I deff approve. [Source]

Here are some pictures from the New York City premiere of Jarhead ... Jake was joined by his co-stars Jamie Foxx and Peter Sarsgaard:

Smashing ... they all look great ... Pete's lookin' a bit bloated but it's hard to look good standing in close proximity to Jakey poo. Click HERE for interview video from the premiere (thanks Sarah). [Source]

Pink reader Kristen was lucky enough to attend the NYC premiere of Jarhead and confesses that she spent more time watching Jake watch the movie rather than watch the movie herself (I'd have done the same thing!). Here are her personal pictures that she shares will all of us:

Yes ... that's right ... Kristen got to meet and take a picture with Jake Gyllenhaal. Rock on, K ... good for you! And thanks again for sharing your pix!! [thanks Kristen]

Look at how amazing Claire Danes looked at the premiere of her new movie Shopgirl last week:

There ain't a thing wrong with her ... even her hair is blowing in the wind majestically! Well ... the dress does make her look a wee bit like a Twinkie but still ... she looks great! I'm gonna try and wrangle someone to go see Shopgirl with me this week. [Source]

Here are some pictures of our dear Jilary in their Halloween costumes for Haylie Duff's Halloween party:

I'm not sure what Hilary is supposed to be (she looks "French") but Joel is obviously Alex from A Clockwork Orange. Hi, he's hot ... except that he's missing his jock strap. Haylie looks like she's trying to be Wonder Woman ... well, she's close enough I suppose. [Source, thanks Kari]

Hilary Duff was all smiles this weekend in her hot-ass boots at the 12th Annual Dream Halloween For Children Affected by AIDS Foundation last week:

Hot, hot boots. [Source]

Dakota Fanning was also on hand at the Dream Halloween fundraiser ... but she showed up in a Halloween costume:

Her little friend (who looks like her twin) is supposed to be Mary Poppins and I think Dakota is supposed to be dressed as Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind. Why am I not surprised that 11 year old Dakota Fanning is a Gone with the Wind fan? I'm convinced that girl is actually 48 years old. [Source]

Xtina Aguilera and her fiancee Jordan Bratman got all gussied up for the Body English Halloween party in Las Vegas this weekend:

She actually looks great. Not too skanky ... she actually looks cute. Jordy's costume isn't that spectacular but matched with Xtina's ... he looks cute too! What the hell?! There isn't anything bad to say about Xtina ... and I'm shocked. Leave it to Xtina Aguilera to look her absolute best for the scariest holiday of the year. [Source]

Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie, the original SkeletwinsTM, reunited at Blender magazine's Rock and Roll Halloween party last week:

::SIGH:: They make such a great duo ... they may not be as sickly thin as they used to be (well, at least Lindsay isn't) but I still love my SkeletwinsTM. [Source]

Whoa! When Whitney Houston puts away the crack pipe she really cleans up well ... check out La Diva at 25 Strong: The BET Silver Anniversary Celebration which will air Tuesday night on BET:

I'm not sure how long Mary J. Blige is letting Whitney use her wig but she looks great in the meantime. You go, Whitney! [thanks Johnnie]

Ashley Olsen glammed out for the Fendi 80th Anniversary Party Hosted By Karl Lagerfeld. Here are some pictures of Ash and Ms. Lagerfeld at the event:

Is it me or just Karl Lagerfeld look like Jay McCarroll in about 30 years? What is it with the fashion types? Anyways ... Ashley was really workin' that vapid look that she does so well ... and her arms look meaty. Quoi?! I wouldn't say she looks healthy, per se, but she is lookin' a might better than she usually does ... or am I thinking of Mary Kate? I always get those 2 mixed up. [Source]

Check out these adorable pictures of Reese Witherspoon and her baby boy Deacon:

The only thing that would be cuter would be if a shirtless and sweaty Ryan Phillippe, glistening in bright California sunshine, was the one pictured with baby Deacon ... yeah ... that would be cuter. [Source]

Eva Longoria is goin' all over the world with a nasty hickey on her neck ...

... but that hickey ain't as disgusting as that thing she's got on her head. WTF? Her stylist needs to be fired ... and then tortured to death. I love that she is wearing sleeves on that sleeveless dress ... OY, what a mess. [Source]

Here are some new promo pictures of Madonna from her Confessions on a Dancefloor photoshoot:

Okay ... enough with the Kylie Minogue homage. I hope we get some new pictures soon. [Source]

Here is the cover of Lindsay Lohan's new album A Little More Personal (Raw):

Have I mentioned that I really hate her first single, Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father) mainly because of her overuse of the parenthetical bracket? I mean, the song sucks but the parentheses just make it all the more worse. I hope this new album isn't chock full of confessional bullcrap ... I get enough of that from Ashlee Simpson's new album. [Source]

Pink reader Jenny sends us this picture of the supposed house that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes purchased in Ottawa Hills (which is a suburb of Toldeo, OH):

Um, have I mentioned the frightening proximity of Toldeo to Detroit? What if TomKat actually do move to the area?! The Scientologists are coming! The Scientologists are coming! Heaven help us all. [thanks Jenny]

Jake Gyllenhaal and crew are on the cover of this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly:

Welcome to the suck, indeed. [Source]

Detroit radio station Channel 955 dj Spike was lucky enough to meet Gwen Stefani at her Detroit show this past weekend:

They both look great! Thanks for sharing the picture, Spike. You know who to call the next time you have a backstage engagement to share. Isn't Ashlee Simpson comin' our way next month? [Source]

I was able to meet some Pink is the new Blog readers at the Gwen Stefani show ... here is a picture of me with Elizabeth, Angie and Kelly:

I have to give a shoutout to Ryan (who took this picture) and to Joel who came over to Say Hey! as well. [thanks Elizabeth]

I got to spend the afternoon with Tracey and Zakiya yesterday. I cannot get over how BEAUTIFUL my goddaughter is. She is seriously the cutest baby in the world. She came over all dressed up in a cute little pink Laura Ashley ensemble ... SOOO cute!

I was in the mood to get grossed out so I went out for a late showing of Saw II last night ... Erik, the gentle flower that he is, opted out:

Oh.My.Grossness. It was totally gross ... I loved it! It was a great sequel to a great movie ... it's not Shakespeare, people -- it's just good ol' fashioned blood and gore -- perfect for Halloween-time. I thoroughly enjoyed it even tho I watched much of the movie from between my fingers. If you're not a fan of needles (like me) then you will find one particular scene especially difficult to watch. Blah! I loved it!

And how pissed am I to find out that I could have been THIS for Halloween?!? Boo!!! I wish I had found it sooner ...

Today I begin my preparations for my next trip out to LA. Yes, I will be flying out to LA this Thursday for another week in SoCal. I have a lot to do this trip out but I'm still planning on blogging each and every day. It better be warm, y'all ... I'm already dunzo with the the cold here in D-Town ... and it's only just begun.

REMEMBER ... today is the last day for you to send in pictures of your Halloween costumes ... tonight I will be picking my Fave Top 5 and will post them tomorrow ... winners will get a Pink is the new Blog sticker!

I'm out.
