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?

Tonight the rich, famous and obnoxious all descend upon the steps of the Metropolitan Museum to attend the Costume Institute Ball – the most fabulous society event of the year thrown by Vogue magazine. We weren’t invited – our Old Navy maxi dress just didn’t cut it for the black tie affair – but we’ll be watching from afar to bring you the best and worst fashion moves of the night.
In honor of the always glamorous affair, we’ve rounded up some of the worst outfits from the last two Balls for your viewing pleasure. Our fingers our crossed that the stars bust out some bad fashion tonight – all in the name of charity, natch. [Photos: GettyImages]
She’s done it! Rumer Willis has run out of neckline! The only way should could have sunk deeper at Genus Magazine’s Britweek Designer Of The Year fashion show would have been to unzip her shorts, and they seem buttoned to that suit jacket (what is going on there?). We can guess why she likes to show off her cleavage, but we’re not sure why she couldn’t cover those splotchy gams with pants—she looks like a conservative magician’s assistant.
Check out Rumer’s love for low-cut in the gallery below.
We had faith that Pam Anderson would some day bring sexy back, but it looks like all hope is lost. The actress turned up at her son’s baseball game draped in a blanket, looking more like a cult leader than a Playboy cover girl.
We know she doesn’t need to be red carpet ready all the time, but this look is a bit ridiculous, even for the trashy TV star. Has Pam taken her hot mess look a little too far? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Who knew Nicole Richie would pop out one (soon to be two) tot and transform into a role model? The reality TV actress has turned her drugged up party girl image around and blossomed into a mom, jewelry designer, style icon and all around do-gooder. That’s why we’re celebrating Harlow’s mama as The FAB Life’s Mom Of The Month!
Why We Love Nicole:
- Her style: Nicole has dumped the glammed up super-skinny look for relaxed, bohemian chic.
- Her Twitter: She pokes fun at boyfriend Joel Madden and chronicles her obsession with American Idol. Nic’s almost as normal as us – except that she tweets with pals like Ashlee Simpson and Miley Cyrus.
- Her website: One day she’s writing about her most embarrassing moment (joining an all-girl hip-hop group at age 10) and the next day she’s video-blogging about the crisis in the Congo. Self-deprecating and aware? Amazing!
- Her charity work: Nicole and Joel started a foundation that benefits mothers and children in need. In the words of her former BFF Paris Hilton, “That’s hot.”
While we love First Lady Michelle Obama and her affinity for J. Crew cardies (note the argyle number she dons below), we have to question her judgment on these overpriced kicks she wore to the Capitol Area Food Bank in DC. To the untrained eye, they appear to be your standard $40 canvas sneakers, but upon closer inspection, they’re Lanvins detailed with satin and grosgrain ribbon laces, and will run you a hefty $540-$565 at Barneys. Co-volunteer Jill Biden was no slouch as she sported a preppy look complete with Tory Burch flats. While it’s a tad tactless to wear shoes that could feed a family for a month to a food bank, at least she’s not in a skirt suit and heels.

We can’t quite believe a year has flown by since Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon shocked the world by getting married after only dating for a short while. We thought they’d be over in six weeks, but the pair has pleasantly surprised us with their bizarre love for each other, which was apparent at their one-year anniversary bash last night.
The couple gathered family and friends in the VIP section at the Moon nightclub in Las Vegas to toast their love. They chowed down on a four-foot cake as Nick deejayed and presented a surprise video to Mariah, featuring moments from their life together that were caught on tape. The singer wept during the presentation, and declared, “I have the best man in the whole wide world.”
Nick also professed his love for his bride, telling the crowd, “This is the most amazing person in the world. I dedicate my life to her daily, and together this union is gonna last forever. She is my rock.”
Congrats, you wacky lovebirds! Let’s see if you make it to anniversary #2. [People. Photo: Splash News Online]
This sexy star is wearing an incredibly glamorous pair of kick-ass heels, but she probably should have tried them on in the shop first. Who is it? Find out after the jump.
Fashion-wise, we know that for 2009, big hair is back, back, back. Big shoulders are back too. So what an insane inspired idea to combine the two in a never-seen-before fashion mash-up! Kate Moss models the new “hairy shoulders” that are sure to take off big on the cover of V magazine — and we can’t wait to see the Topshop version hit shelves soon! Hopefully they’ll come with their own brush and de-tangling conditioner to keep them in tip top shape. Let’s also hope that they don’t frizz up if you’re caught out in the rain. Brilliant. Ahem.
