The weather’s nice in NY today, so it’s no surprise that Rihanna is out shopping in a white bustier…wait, what? This girl is displaying so many dramatic looks that we can barely keep up! The singer was spotted sans umbrella—or shirt, for that matter—checking out clothes at Intermix in Soho. Who knows what she might show up in a few hours from now…

The day after sporting a tuxedo at the Costume Institute Gala, Rihanna worked two dramatic looks yesterday in New York City. During the day, the singer wore dominatrix style thigh highs with cutoff jean hotpants and Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses to go to lunch at Da Silvano and shop. Then at night, Riri busted out in a bright yellow jacket and dramatic makeup for a night on the town. Perhaps Cinco De Mayo was making the artist feel spicy! [Source: Splash News Online]
The New York Post is reporting that actor Kiefer Sutherland got into a disagreement with Jack McCollough – one half of the design team Proenza Schouler – and ended it by breaking McCollough’s nose with a head butt, Bauer style. They apparently got into it at an after party for the Costume Institute Gala, disputing about – of all people – Brooke Shields. The fashion designer has apparently filed a complaint with police.
Sources on the scene allege that Sutherland, who’s been arrested on DUI charges in the past, was wasted. “Sutherland was really drunk and he got accidentally bumped by McCollough,” said one spy. “They started arguing and then he just head-butted him.”
Another party-goer who spotted Sutherland at an earlier after-party, revealed that the 24 star,” was running around wearing a giant feather boa and acting totally crazy. He was dancing feverishly and twirling people around all over the place. He seemed to be quite intoxicated.”
Some reports claim that Jack accidentally knocked Brooke to the ground, upsetting Kiefer, but her people have come forward to dispute this claim. “Jack did nothing inappropriate,” said Brooke’s rep. “It’s not clear what caused Kiefer to do what he did.”
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. What do you think of VB’s new look? [Photo: Splash News Online]
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.
