Hollywood stars usually hate being pictured in an outfit which has been worn before. But actress Lindsay Lohan showed she was proud to wear second-hand clothing as part of a campaign for ethical fashion. The 22-year-old was pictured wearing vintage clothes in a bid to encourage people to swap their unwanted threads. Lindsay is fronting this year's Visa fashion swapping event, which will take place in London this month in association with clothing charity TRAID. And she had no trouble making the re-cycled clothing look like they had just come off the shelf of a designer store. In one picture the sexy actress looked racy in a simple black blazer and a short red mini skirt. And without a top or bra under the blazer, the singer looked seductive as she posed for the campaign. Lindsay who has recently started her own fashion leggings range looked stunning in the second hand attire. The star who is backing the campaign to encourage shoppers to swap their unwanted clothing in the Visa Swap shop in Covent Garden says she is excited to have taken over this years event ... Lindsay said: "The concept of swapping clothes, getting something for nothing and refreshing your wardrobe appeals to everyone."
MMM MMM ... Lindsay generally looks good in anything that she wears, so it shouldn't be difficult for her to inspire others to participate in this Visa Fashion Swap event to help raise money for TRAID (the Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development). Linds is lookin' pretty sexy for a charity that sounds so dry. Leave it to L. Lo to sex up recycling :) [Source]

I hope this haircut was authorized by the Heroes producers ... not to mention her dude Milo ;) I'm not sure how I feel about it, to be honest, it looks a bit uneven in the back. Watch it turn out to be a janky wig or something ... course, if it's not a wig and it's just a janky haircut, well, oops. [Source]

You know, now that it's the "in" thing to be all responsible and not crazy, I bet Lindsay really working towards keeping her life on track so that she doesn't end up ruining what great progress she's accomplished over the past few months. I think this is a great sign of things to come ... I am very much looking forward to the new, improved and stable Lindsay Lohan. [Source]
David Beckham received a new first in his playing career today when a 'love struck' male fan ran onto the field to hug and high-five him, as his LA Galaxy side clung to a 3-2 lead over the Colorado Rapids in America's Major League Soccer. A shocked Beckham looked on as the fan was knocked down by Galaxy teammate Chris Klein and then pinned by one of Beckham's suited security men. But ever the gentleman, after realizing he was in no danger, Beckham helped pull the fan to his feet before the youngster was taken away. "I was slightly concerned when I first saw him running at me because he didn't have a smile on his face and he didn't have a Galaxy shirt on," Beckham told the LA Times website. "So I didn't know if he was going to come and give me a hug or something else. These things happen in games all over the world. Luckily, he just wanted to give me a high five and that was the end of it."
Awww ... what a good sport. Becks is a sweetie even when he's not sure if he's about to be accosted by an unknown assailant. Good for him. Pics not enough? Click HERE to watch the video. [Source, Source]
In related news, the littlest Beckham, Cruz, showed up at the Galaxy vs. Rapids game over the weekend showing off a few new tattoos ... just like his daddy:
Aww ... so cute. You know, it won't be long before these pretend tattoos become real tattoos. Something tells me that the Beckham boys are prolly gonna follow in their father's body modification footsteps very early on ... surely to the chagrin of their parents. Cruz would look ace with a full back tattoo, no? [Source]
We did venture out last night to meet up with Steph, Alek, Jordan and his friend to see Sex and the City (the third time for me, second time for S&A and first time for David, Jordan and his friend) ... after the movie, Jo Jo and his friend had to jet off while the rest of us grabbed some grub:
Then it was back home to work again. This afternoon, more work awaits ... I have a bazillion other things to do as well in the next couple of days. Sarah arrives tomorrow night and then the big party Wednesday night ahead of the relaunch ... Gods, give me strength.

She's one of Hollywood's most glamorous young stars often praised for her sense of style and elegance. However Mischa Barton has fallen foul to that much-dreaded social faux-pas - treading in dog mess. The beautiful 22-year-old, sporting a pair of pink butterfly wings, was leaving the Hero Awards in Los Angeles with her mother when she took a wrong step and stood in the canine excrement. Fortunately Barton appeared unfazed by the mishap when it was pointed out to her by another guest.
Hee hee ... I think it's a bit much to say that Mischa Barton is "one of Hollywood's most glamorous young stars often praised for her sense of style and elegance" but I do feel bad that the poor girl stepped in a pile of dog doo while wearing her fabulous Christian Louboutin shoes. Tho, I feel worse for her guest/assistant/whoever who it fell upon to scrape the mess off Mischa's shoes. ICK but LOL! [Source]

On the one hand, I'm glad that they are giving the Hulk another shot at box office glory ... on the other hand, I'm afraid it might turn out just as terrrrrible as Ang Lee's movie Hulk. I'm encouraged that the story is much more in line with both the comic books and the 1970's TV series but the CGI graphics kinda look a bit similar (ie. kinda Shrekish). My gut tells me that this movie will be better than the previous Hulk movie but it remains to be seen if that will actually the case. The movie opens in theaters this coming Friday ... I hope it has an incredible opening weekend :) Yes, I should be shot for that lame line. [Source]

Awww ... it looks like Nic/Joel, Speidi and Lance Bass all made friends with Barney the dinosaur -- which is really funny because my friend Darion ran into Lance later on yesterday night at a private Pride pool party and had little encounter with him. I wonder if Lance grabbed Barney's butt, too? Anyways, I love that Heroes star Zachary Quinto, Buffy alum Seth Green and ex-Young and the Restless star Lauralee Bell all came out to support the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. It is very heartening that Young Hollywood is so willing to lend their support to such an amazing charity. It's events like this that give me hope that Hollywood isn't really filled with vapid, self-serving folks and that people actually care. Wee! [Source]

As usual, the TV Land Awards brought together an unusual collection of Hollywood stars. On the red carpet and during the show, taped Sunday, they joked around or, more seriously, shared details of their lives. USA TODAY was at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., to catch the action:
•Lionel Richie, who was presented the Icon Award for his 40 years in show business. He said on stage as he accepted his award, "Just surviving 27 years of Nicole Richie. … I stand here as survivor."
•Justin Timberlake, who presented Mike Myers with his award. He was greeted by shouts of love from a male audience member. "That's OK. Nothing wrong with a little bromance," Timberlake joked.
•Dawn Wells of Gilligan's Island. She talked about the October arrest in Idaho that made headlines in February; she was placed on probation after being caught with marijuana in her car. "None of it was true," Wells said. "I was weaving on the road and trying to find the (car) heater. (Police) never gave me a breathalyzer test, but they asked to search my car and found three (marijuana) roaches. My friend had been driving my car earlier in the day. He admitted to it all." She continued, "The story mushroomed, and I lost out on a Girl Scout speaking engagement."
•Gary Coleman of Diff'rent Strokes. Coleman walked the carpet solo but says that despite reports, he and wife Shannon Price are still together. Their one-year anniversary is Aug. 28, and she is expecting him "to come up with something spectacular," he says. He wouldn't comment on reports that he's still a virgin, but he had plenty to say about Price otherwise: She likes to sell items on eBay, including Coleman autographs. And she wasn't with him because she was at home, where "she has three dachshunds. She is very much a caregiver to them."
Um, hello! Clearly the most Golden moment of the whole affair was the arrival of 3 of the Golden Girls on the TV Land red carpet -- Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan and Betty White. Altho all 4 of the Golden Girls are still alive, Estelle Getty suffers from Lewy Body Dementia and is no longer well enough to able to make public appearances (Rue McClanahan revealed in an interview a few years ago that Estelle has deteriorated to the point where she no longer recognizes any of her GG co-stars and, very sadly, has no recollection at all of the show). I know Estelle was there in spirit tho, she is always present in spirit whenever the Golden Girls get together. Despite the fact that we are inundated with a plethora of (oftentimes useless) award shows, I really love the TV Land Awards for the mere fact that all of our favorite classic TV stars have a chance to be featured all together at least once a year. I mean, how else would Barry Williams be able to occupy his days? The TV Land Awards will air on TV Land on June 15th. [Source]

Seriously ... Charo has to be the one of the fiercest women IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. I've been a huge fan of Charo ever since I was a little kid ... my parents have been big fans of her for years. Some of you may know Charo from her stint on The Surreal Life a few years ago but she has been an accomplished performer for decades now. I wish I had known that Charo was performing this weekend cuz I would've gotten my buns down to the fete to see her perform. This post is for my boy Erik back home in Detroit who has to be the biggest Charo fan I've ever met ... I'm sending out a major Cuchi-Cuchi to you!!! [Source]

From what I understand, this weekend's performance will be her only concert stop of the year. After Olivia completed her second of two encores, she was brought back on stage to be presented a proclamation from the City of West Hollywood which essentially named her the coolest woman on Earth! This year's Pride event scored a real coup by getting Olivia Newton-John to perform but it was really no surprise me. Olivia has been a huge supporter of GLBT rights and it made total sense that she would sign on to headline this year's event. Olivia, it is with all sincerity that I say, I Honestly Love You :) [Source]
Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren have welcomed a baby girl. She was born this weekend at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Alba's father was overheard saying "she's beautiful." Warren -- in a T-shirt, jeans and baseball cap -- was spotted carrying food into the maternity ward Sunday. Her rep had no comment. Alba, 26, and Warren, 28, announced they were expecting last December.
HMMM ... the report is very light on deets and has no official confirmation. Also, People magazine has yet to report this news so ... I'm holding off on the congrats until we know for sure. [Source]
UPDATE: People magazine got confirmaion from the couple's rep, they did indeed have a baby girl:
Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren have welcomed a baby girl. Honor Marie Warren was born June 7 in Los Angeles, her rep, Brad Cafarelli, confirms. This is the couple's first child.
Accordingly, much congrats are in order!!!
