David Furnish‘s Cannes yacht party may have been Monday, but Hayden Panettiere and British TV presenter Steve Jones were still sunbathing together the next day. The pair have been seen frequently together for about week, in both London and Cannes: if they’re not dating, they’ve truly become fast, half-naked friends. Eat your heart out, Milo Ventimiglia!

Paris Wants Kids, Beckhams As Godparents

Paris Hilton has big plans — not only is she planning kids with boyfriend Doug Reinhardt, she’s also intent on making Victoria and David Beckham godparents to the little celebutante-in-waiting. Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival (and apparently after a few drinks), Paris referred to The Hills star as her “future hubby,” although we’ve heard that line before . What we haven’t heard is her plan to turn Posh and Becks into the pair responsible for keeping her future tot away from those DUI disasters.

“I am going to ask Victoria and David to be godparents to my children. We had dinner with them in LA and really hit it off. I’m going to name my kids David and Victoria because she is so hot and I want kids as beautiful as her,” she said.

Um, does Paris actually realize that making people godparents or naming them after somebody doesn’t actually influence the genetic makeup of your kids? Never mind. Run Victoria, run! [Photos: , Splash News Online]


Style Wars: Model Vs. Model

Two hotties who have both posed for Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret walked the red carpet at the Looking for Eric premiere at Cannes, showing a bit more skin than is customary at the festival. (Unless, that is, you are Paris Hilton.) Eva Herzigova, a Czech model and actress, wore a nearly backless, see-through dress that showcased her statuesque legs while Doutzen Kroes, who hails from the Netherlands, wore a dress that showed off suntanned thighs. Which model looked the best?

Paris Hilton Strips Down At Cannes

Cannes isn’t all parties and film deals for Paris Hilton. The socialite and boyfriend Doug Reinhardt took to the pool at the Eden Roc Hotel to soak in some rays and pose for the paparazzi. If Paris was worried about her skimpy swimsuit shifting inconveniently, she didn’t let anyone know.

EXCLUSIVE: Mariah And Nick’s 20-Minute PDA Fest

Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon

Although she had canceled her scheduled appearance at Nikki Beach following the Cannes premiere of her film, Precious, Mariah Carey decided to make a late and brief appearance to the afterparty for her film on Saturday night. After guests had finished dinner, which started at 9 pm, Mariah and hubby Nick Cannon waltzed in at about 11:30pm and gave a full fledged PDA fest for the partygoers.

“They were all over each other – just looked really in love,” a source tells TheĀ  FABlife.

Although the divalicious singer and her husband only stayed twenty minutes, partygoers didn’t consider it a diva move.

“She looked really tired from the premiere and doing press all day. Everyone was just pleased she showed up,” the source reveals.

Indeed, this glamazon had places to go and people to see, and one of those was Roberto Cavalli. Mariah and Nick headed over to his yacht for another glamorous soiree after chatting with guests and shaking hands. [Photos: Getty Images]

Ryan And Abbie: Cutest Couple In Cannes?


Although their relationship reportedly got off to a somewhat scandalous start, when Ryan Phillippe was still married to Reese Witherspoon, Ryan and girlfriend Abbie Cornish emerged as quite the wholesome, happy couple when they hit the Nowhere party in Cannes this weekend. The couple looked tan and fresh, with Abbie sporting little makeup and Ryan looking casual in a black t-shirt.

As the couple hits the French Riviera to see if Abbie’s film Bright Star will nab the Palme d’Or, they have some tough competition from other hot couples, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon and Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt, who have also been hitting the festival arm in arm.

From Paris To Cannes

MTV has picked up the documentary Paris, Not France, which shows a behind the scenes look at the life of the world’s most famous heiress.

The film debuted last year at the Toronto Film Festival, where, after watching the film with the audience, Paris Hilton‘s initial fears about the film’s portrayal of her were allayed.

The international rights are now up for sale at Cannes, where Paris and boyfriend Doug Reinhardt arrived this weekend for a little fun and business on the French Riviera. [Source: The Hollywood Reporter; Photos: Splash News Online]

Nude Cyclists Ride Through Cannes


Not only was Mariah Carey kept waiting this weekend, but her hours of primping and perfecting her red carpet outfit were all for nothing when a group of nude cyclists stole her thunder by riding through the Riviera seafront completely in the buff.

The stunt was spearheaded by director Felix can Groeningan who grabbed four actors from his film, La Merditude des Choses, and pedalded down the oceanfront of the French Riviera, in an attempt to recreate a scene from their film. [Photo: Getty Images]


Mariah Left Waiting At Cannes?


It’s usually everyone else waiting on Mariah Carey, so who could possibly make the diva wait for over an hour, holed up in her hotel room until his arrival? Not hubby Nick Cannon, but director Lee Daniels, who reportedly kept the songstress waiting for a screening of her movie Precious at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend when he showed up an hour late.

Reports claim the singer/actress waited at her posh room at the Hotel Martinez until Lee arrived, which made her extremely late to walk the red carpet.

“Can you imagine Mariah waiting for anyone?” a source asked, who continued, “Both Mariah and (co-star) Lenny Kravitz were pissed off. They thought it was disrespectful.” [Photo: Getty Images]


Style Wars: Eva Longoria Vs. Hot French Actress

Another day at Cannes, another set of full-length gowns. Eva Longoria Parker and Frederique Bel (known mainly in France) both attended the premiere of Bright Star wearing dresses with hugely expansive bottoms. Looking at these pictures, it’s not hard to imagine either of these ladies busting into a flamenco dance. But only one actress can win our Style War. Who has the better look?
