Style Wars: Jordin Sparks Vs. Jennifer Hudson

Man, do these gals clean up nice. American Idol alums Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Hudson arrived early on the scene at tonight’s VH1 Divas concert and they both had a gorgeous shine going on. We are loving Jordin’s dress with a passion, but we think Jennifer – who gave birth only a month ago – looks pretty killer in this black and silver number, too. Which diva hits a higher note for you?

Do You Smell Fierce…Or Sasha Fierce?

beyonce
Every celebrity has a perfume nowadays, so it was only a matter of time before Beyonce signed on to create one too. Beyonce recently made a deal with fragrance manufacturer Coty to release a scent in 2010, but Abercrombie & Fitch wanted to make sure that the singer, whose last album was called “I Am…Sasha Fierce”, didn’t use her alter ego’s name on the product. Abercrombie owns a trademark to the word “fierce” and uses that as a name for one of its own fragrances and they’re worried that a Sasha Fierce fragrance might cause confusion or cost them sales.
Call us crazy but can’t we deduce that Abercrombie jumped on the Tyra/Christian Siriano/every other diva-tastic celeb bandwagon when they decided to co-opt that word? Get over it, guys. No one is going to confuse anything you do for anything Beyonce does. Regardless, Beyonce and Coty have assured everyone the word “fierce” will not show up in any of its branding. Which is good because if someone told us we smelled fierce, we’d think it was time to shower. [Source: BBC; Photo: Getty Images]

Lindsay Tries To Steal Seats At Fashion Show

lindsay_lohan

La Lohan never ceases to amaze us. Yesterday we reported that she and Taylor Momsen were getting chummy at a fashion show earlier this week, and now comes the rumor that when Lindsay showed up to the G-Star runway show with her sister Ali and some pals, she actually tried to move Momsen’s seating card to accommodate her own crew. Not such good pals anymore, it seems. She also started tossing around the seating cards of Juliette Lewis and Christian Siriano, until the event producers tried to stop her, at which point she yelled at them “Don’t f*cking touch me!”. Lohan also allegedly put up a fuss when she had to pose for pictures and chat with the press ’cause that’s, like, work and stuff. [Source: NY Post; Photo: Getty Images]

Charlize Is Tangled Up In Blue

charlize_theron_1

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Charlize Theron on the red carpet, but when she stepped out last night for the premiere of her new film The Burning Plain, she looked amazing. We think that electric blue dress looks beautiful against her hair and red lips. So, ok, the film didn’t have an official red carpet, but even when she’s walking through some questionable, vomit-like green garbage, she looks stunning. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Lindsay Parties With The Underage

lindsay-hangs-main1

It’s nice to see that Lindsay Lohan and her 15-year-old sister Ali remain close, but not to get all Judgey Judgerson around here, we wish Lindsay would set a better example for her sis and not like, invite her along for the ride that is her life. Earlier this month, LiLo took Ali out on the town in L.A. where they hit up places like the Crown Bar and Teddy’s, a bar inside the Roosevelt Hotel. A patron at Teddy’s said “Both of them were smoking like chimneys and dancing around.” When asked what he thinks about such outings, daddy Michael Lohan said “I’m glad Lindsay and Ali remain so close. However, they’re independent people and are capable of making their own decisions.” Sigh. We’re kinda glad we had parents that punished us for being bad.

Now Lindsay has taken to corrupting yet another teen: she and 16-year-old Taylor Momsen were hanging out with one another during Fashion Week (don’t they look happy?). Momsen has mentioned how disillusioned she is with being 16, but might we suggest spending time in the company of non-Lohans? You know, just in case she’s concerned with career longevity.

Kim Kardashian: “Kourtney Has Been Wearing Khloe’s Clothes”

kardashian-sosters-main1

Kim Kardashian is totally the undermining sister who manages to dole out backhanded compliments and subtle insults without really realizing it. Take, for example, what she said about her sisters recently – while Kim might think she’s making an innocent comment, it comes off as kinda bitchy. While talking to an E! Online reporter, Kim discussed Kourtney‘s fashion challenges while being pregnant, saying “She’s huge. She is huuuuge! I think she’s in denial of buying maternity clothes, because she just borrows Khloé‘s clothes.” Ouch. Kim then realized her slam and followed up by saying “Khloé is going to kill me for saying that, but it’s really because Khloé is so much taller.” Nice save, but we’re pretty glad that we’re not related to Kim, we’re self conscious enough as it is without her sisterly comments.

Dear Lord, Please Let This Be A Wig

katherine_mcphee_3

Hold up there, Katharine McPhee, what have you done to yourself?? (Yes, that really is Katharine McPhee, we could barely recognize her.) The American Idol singer, known for her gorgeous long brown locks has done something rash and cut them all off – we haven’t felt this way about a hair hacking since Felicity and we don’t like it one bit. McPhee was on hand at Macy’s in New York City to make an appearance, but we think she and her new hair will be showing up more often these days since she has an upcoming album scheduled for a January 2010 release.
