Lindsay Lohan Mistaken For Donatella Versace At Fashion Show

Ooof. Well this is awkward. Lindsay Lohan caused quite a stir when she arrived at Cythia Rowley’s New York fashion show on Friday night. But unlike Nicki Minaj, it wasn’t because of what she was wearing. Hell, it wasn’t even because she was Lindsay Lohan. Apparently it’s because people thought she was 55-year old fashionita and plastic surgery victim enthusiast Donatella Versace. Oooh, that’s gotta sting. According the New York Magazine, Lindsay staged her big entrance right as the lights went low and the show was about to begin. And with her newly platinum locks, suspiciously plump lips, orange-hued skin, inappropriately tiny shorts and equally inappropriately huge sunglasses, the 25-year old starlet was a dead ringer for the elder Versace.

“Then, the entire room full of journalists sat ramrod straight and let out excited, disbelieving, four-letter expletives as we all realized this was actually Lindsay Freaking Lohan,” reports The Fug Girls. “The take-home here for Lindsay should be that we all initially mistook her for somebody much crispier who is thirty years her senior.” The photo you see above was taken back in 2009, so we shudder to think how the two look side by side right now. Between this and reports that little sister Ali has undergone plastic surgery, it has not been a good week to be a Lohan face! Is it in the genes to age weirdly? Or is it in the genes to make bad decisions?

Rihanna Goes Blonde And Buff For Armani Ads

Emporio Armani unveiled its new print ads today, staring a scantily clad Rihanna lounging in the back of a classic car. And they manage to turn “dammmnnnn” into a nineteen syllable word. Seriously, this looks like the start of the best car wash of our lives. The steamy black and white images were photographed by Steve Klein, famous for directing Lady Gaga’s equally sexy music video for “Alejandro”. The Barbadian beauty showed off a new blonde Tinkerbell ‘do for the shoot, which we’re feelin’ is most likely a wig. RiRi was announced as the face, or should we say “body” of Emporio Armani underwear back in July, following in the footsteps of Megan Fox and Victoria Beckham. Whatever she’s selling, we’ll take it. Two, in fact.

Nicki Minaj Makes Gumballs Glam At Fashion Week

Nicki Minaj looked like she stepped off the Candy Land game board when she showed up at the Carolina Herrera Spring 2012 fashion show in New York City this morning. With Fashion Week is in full swing, we knew Miss Minaj had to up her usual bizarro steez. But she definitely outdid herself in her Amazing Technicolor Gumball Coat, aka “The Coat Of Many Flavors”. OK, it’s not actually made of candy, but it’s still pretty awesome/insane. And she even had the guts to wear it next to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour! Damn, that takes some serious gumballs. Luckily the prickly fashionista didn’t chew out Nicki’s gummy ensemble, but seemed to hit it off with the rapper. Check out the gallery below for more!

Ryan Gosling Brings His Mom To The Ides Of March Premiere, Makes Us Look Bad

OK, listen up Ryan Gosling. We speak for the dudes of the world when we say, stop making us look bad! It’s bad enough that our girlfriends are constantly disappointed that we don’t kiss like that stupid scene in The Notebook (and we’ve hurt our back trying). But lately you’ve been running around stopping fights and earthquakes, and taking your hot costars on wholesome dates to Disneyland. It’s all too much! And now you’ve brought your mom as your date to the Ides Of March premiere at the  Toronto Film Festival!? How the hell are we gonna compete with that!? It’s gonna make that cardigan we got our moms for Christmas look like a worthless piece of felt. Congrats, Donna Gosling. You have the best son in the world. There, we said it. You happy, Gosling!? Check out more adorability in the gallery below.

Justin Bieber Wants To Be Married By 25, And Will Probably Steal His Wife’s Jeans

And now a lil’ somethin’ for all the ladies…particularly those in middle school. Are you dreaming of settling down someday with your one and only true love, Justin Bieber? Well get a move on, because you’ve only got eight years to lock that dude down! The Biebs has just told Women’s Wear Daily that he hopes to be married by the age of twenty-five. So start saving up for that engagement ring!

When asked what he saw for himself in five years, the seventeen year old singer gave a surprisingly mature answer. “Well, by twenty-five or twenty-six, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family,” he told the magazine. “I want to be a young dad. I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do; to be successful, to do a movie or whatever. But if the time is right,  I definitely want to be married by twenty-five.” Before Biebs gets buried under an avalanche marriage proposals, we should say that this is probably not the best time to bring up the subject. “I’m not looking to get married right now,” he clarified. So there’s no need to lay the smack down on his current girlfriend, Selena Gomez.

But there might be a downside to being the future Mrs. Bieber: you may have to worry about him stealing your clothes! At Dolce & Gabbana’s Fashion Night Out, Bieber told Life & Style magazine about how he gets into women’s pants (no, not like that). “I’ve worn women’s jeans before because they fit me,” he says. “It’s not a trend; it’s just, whatever works, works.” He cites his buddy Kanye West as his style inspiration, and when the rapper recently wore a woman’s sweater, Justin took note. “It wasn’t [so he'd] look like a woman in a sweater; it was just a regular sweater that happened to be a woman’s.” We’re diggin the confidence, Biebs! Just get ready to be buried under a mountain of jeans from female fans.

Rapper Tinie Tempah Shells Out $37,500 For Marty McFly Kicks

It’s official: the future is now. Fans of the classic film franchise Back To The Future have always coveted Michael J. Fox’s space age kicks from the second installment. Fox’s character MartyMcFly has to travel to the year 2015 to get his power-lacing Nike Mags, but luckly for us we don’t have to wait that long. Nike has produced a limited edition run of 1,500 pairs of the sneaker! The shoes sadly lack the power lacing (what have we been doing with our resources, America!?) but they still look pretty damn cool, featuring LED lights and an electroluminescent Nike logo. Heavy!

How do you snag a pair for yourself? Well the shoes aren’t sold in stores, but are up for auction on eBay. Nike says that the proceeds are going towards the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson Research, which the temptation for us to buy ‘em all the more overwhelming. And apparently we’re not the only one who’s having a hard time holding back. British rapper Tinie Tempah bought himself the first pair last night at an LA auction for a whopping $37,500! Great Scott!! A source close to Tinie says that the dude’s a serious shoe collector. Ya think!? At least it’s for a good cause. And we’d probably do the exact same thing if we had the cash. We haven’t had light-up shoes since our LA Gears back in ’95, and we miss them terribly.

Jenny McCarthy Twists The Knife In Jim Carrey’s Heart With Hot New Bikini Pix


We’ve already told you about Jim Carrey‘s continued decent into weirdness today, and when these hot pix of of his ex Jenny McCarthy hit the streets, we’re starting to figure out the reason why. Letting Jenny’s babe-tastic bikni bod slip through our (metaphorical) figures would be something we’re not sure we’d ever recover from. The former Playboy Playmate and current mega-hottie got playful with her new BF Paul Krepelka on the sands of Malibu. Although turning thirty-nine this November, the lovely Jenny proves that age ain’t nothin’ but a number that seriously bums out everyone that doesn’t look like Jenny McCarthy. Poor Jim! Check out more of the hotness in the gallery below.

Lindsay Lohan Claims Sister Ali Hasn’t Had Plastic Surgery

Despite the fact that the before and after shots clearly look like two entirely different peopleAli Lohan‘s older sister Lindsay (you all remember Lindsay) claims that the young model hasn’t had any plastic surgery done. “She has never,” she told E! News. Well, that’s settled. Lindsay would never lie about anything, right? Another source close to the Lohan Clan explains that Ali’s puffed lips, chiseled cheekbones, and restructured nose is because she “just lost a lot of weight.”

Well, we can’t argue with that, because the teen did look alarmingly skinny, raising concerns of her physical well being. “She is very underweight. By looking at her cheekbones you can tell she has muscle wasting going on,” Dr. Majid Ali, the editor of The Journal of Integrative Medicine tells RadarOnline. “I’m unsure how she is losing weight but she has the look of someone who may binge and purge plus calorie restrict.” Great.

The natural reaction would be to suspect modeling, an industry which admittedly does place a great deal of pressure on women to obsess over body image. But Ali’s agency is also claiming that littlest Lohan hasn’t gone under the knife, and is just growing up. “As a young girl who is growing up, it’s natural for her facial features to change slightly,” says a rep from Ali’s agency, NEXT Model Management. “We see this with many of the younger models we represent.” Ahhh right, this is also known as, ‘The Michael Jackson Defense.’ But still, numerous top doctors protest otherwise. Prominent New York surgeon Dr. Jon Turk tells US Weekly that “It appears that she has had a rhinoplasty and chin implant, giving her a narrower and more defined nose as well as a stronger jawline.”

All we can say is: heed this cautionary tale, Noah Cyrus. And hang in there Ali.

Beyonce Bows Out Of Michael Jackson Tribute Gig?

Despite initial reports that her pregnancy wouldn’t stop her from Moonwalking, Beyonce has apparently pulled out of the high profile Michael Jackson tribute concert this October. Bebe was supposed to have her spot beamed in live via satellite to the concert arena in Cardiff, Wales, but a source tells RadarOnline that this is sadly no longer the case. Instead she will be  offering up a “a special contribution on video.” No word yet on why the singer had to take a downgrade, but we’re guessing it’s pregnancy related. But fans who already have tickets to the sold out gig probably aren’t too bummed. They still have performances from Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Gladys Knight, Ne-Yo and Smokey Robinson to look forward to!

Elizabeth Olsen and Camilla Belle strolled into the celebration wearing stripey gowns, while Emma Roberts took a more casual approach in a bright cardigan.
