We realized we spend far too long looking at pictures of Victoria Beckham when the sight of her NOT in a skintight/figure-hugging item of clothing is enough to genuinely surprise us. But hey, it’s our job, so we bring to you Posh in a full, girly skirt rather than the ass-clinging pencil skirt or skinny trousers she normally sports. Some are referring to her new(ish) style as a copycat of the 1960s trends on Mad Men but we just think Posh looks really, really nice. More relaxed, more fluid and more comfortable.

We couldn’t help but pause at the pictures of Lindsay Lohan at last night’s party for Teen.com and wonder, what the f*ck is going on with that finger? Since we remain perplexed, we need your help. Is she:
- Digging around for a dollar or two?
- Attempting her latest sexy pose?
- Pondering what the hell happened to her career?
- Trying to kick smoking by sucking on her finger?
The actress once again dragged her little sister Ali out past her bedtime last night, and their blossoming BFF-ness has some experts concerned. “If you have an older child who is breaking a lot of the rules and engaging in dangerous and risky behavior, this can have a negative impact on the younger child,” a psychiatrist told the NY Daily News.
Is lonely Lindsay runing her teen sister? You tell us. [Photos: GettyImages]
We’ve already exposed the Costume Gala’s worst-dressed celebs. But for every fashion misfire at this glamour fest, dozens of stunning outfits created by the world’s best designers adorned the stunning bodies of the world’s most famous people. This year’s theme was “The Model as Muse.” So it should come as no surprise that skin was on display in abundance. From open-backed gowns (Kate Moss, Ciara) to high hems (Gisele, Rachel Bilson) to semi-bare midriffs (Claudia Schiffer, Eva Longoria Parker), the gala was an orgy of flawless flesh. Check the pics.
The Costume Institute gala, held annually at the Met museum in NYC, is considered to be one of the most glamorous events in the world, but that doesn’t mean the celebrities who attend are immune to fashion missteps — or even fashion catastrophes. This year’s theme (“The Model as Muse”) was responsible for more than one “high-concept” outfit that we fail to understand.
Model Shalom Harlow‘s poofy black creation, for example, might be a brilliant piece of avant-garde design to some. But we’re just laypeople here at theFABlife, and when we look at her gown we see nothing but the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.
Similarly, fashion insiders might look at Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton and see an abstract-psychedelic masterpiece. But the getup just gives us a headache. Then there’s Madonna (fashion offenses listed here), Rihanna (we have no words) and Kirsten Dunst (we want to like this country-inspired dress, but flatter it does not). See pictures below of 2009 gala’s worst outfits.
We know it’s been a stressful time, Madonna. We know it must have been hard on Monday when the judge in Malawi adjourned his decision on your appeal to adopt Mercy until a “later date.” It must be really strange seeing daughter Lourdes develop her own headline-grabbing style at the tender age of 12 — suddenly you’re not the most fashionable one any more. But really, is this, um, “experiment” at the Met Gala the answer?
The ribbon defies gravity. The hair looks like you’ve just swept it up in a scrunchie to put your mascara on. The dress looks like you’ve nicked it from Cyndi Lauper’s 1985 wardrobe. And the heel on those boots is just wrong. Still, we’ve got to give you a medal for style bravery. Combined with the famous grass dress last year, it seems without Guy Ritchie, Madge is embracing her inner fashion nutcase. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Who needs a bra, anyway? Lady Gaga doesn’t think so, and she stepped out in New York after her star-studded concert wearing only a chiffon see-through jumpsuit. Clearly some over-the-shoulder boulder holders would have ruined the lines of the “look” so she protected her modesty with a couple of carefully placed stickers. Ouch. They also had the unfortunate effect of looking like giant nipples. But knowing her so-forward-it’s-fallen-over style, that was probably the intention.
With all due to respect to Aretha Franklin‘s contraceptive diaphragm and Brooke Shields‘ big blue cowpie, the Best Celebrity Hat Of The 2009 Kentucky Derby has to go to Star Jones‘ feather-brain, just for her ability to stand upright while wearing it. And now you know what it looks like when a swan explodes.
Check out some of this year’s hat-related highlights in the gallery below.

Everyone from Tom & Gisele to Orlando & Miranda went to the party for Rachel Zoe at Gramercy Park Saturday, but Goldie Hawn was one attentive assistant away from being the main event. When the 62-year-old arrived at the event with Liv Tyler, she was dangerously close to falling out of her dress—not that she’s shy. Tyler wound up leaving the party with Hawn’s daughter, Kate Hudson, who looked great even hidden under a jacket. Are they sure she wasn’t switched at the hospital with Tara Reid?
