Christian Audigier is best-known as the designer behind such brands as Ed Hardy, Diesel, and Von Dutch, as well as his label Crystal Rock, named after his daughter. This weekend, Christian threw Crystal (decked out in super-high heels and a tight, skimpy dress) a sweet sixteen birthday bash, and as the rest of the world was heating up ramen noodles and searching for jobs, Crystal was receiving not one – but two cars as a gift.
It only gets worse, my dear Old Navy-clad friends. Nicky and Paris Hilton presented Crystal with her decadent gift, after both T.I. and the Pussycat Dolls performed at the party. The rich are not only getting richer, they’re getting more ridiculous too.
Got some free time between clipping coupons and paying bills? Check out video of the extravagant affair above, and browse pics below. We’ve included some extra shots of Crystal, who’s got the body – and the attitude – of a 25-year-old party girl. Classy.
You may have thought head-shaving pop star Britney Spears was a little too busy losing it over the past two years to pay much mind to the tabloids, but it turns out she’s been keeping up with Katie Holmes. In a clip from the upcoming MTV documentary about the singer, Britney’s seen out shopping with an assistant. She plucks a shirt from a rack, holds it up, and tells her assistant, “This is very mommy.” Her assistant replies “It’s very ugly,” to which Britney says, “It is very Katie Holmes.” BURN.
No word on whether Britney was shopping for that pesky custody trial that remains unresolved, but we think she could take a page out of the devoted bride of Cruise’s playbook, at least as far as parenting goes. On the other hand, these pictures make us think Brit may have a point.
Somewhere on a private jet floating above America, Kanye West is angrily typing into his Macbook Air: “OH NO YOU DIDN’T STEAL MY SUNGLASSES LOOK AND STICK FRINGE ON IT BEYONCE!!!!!” But alas, Mrs. Jay-Z has done just that, making a fugly look even fuglier on the set of her new video. Also steamed is undead child murderer Freddy Krueger, who can’t believe Beyonce would mimic his infamous knife-glove without his permission (see pic below).
Even with all the style-stealing going on, there is one thing Beyonce can take credit for: that horrendous triangle towered crown. That look, embarassingly enough, is all her own. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Kanye West is a simple man, and yearns for just two things in life – an internship at a fashion house to hone his second career choice, and “some pussy.” Does a man really even need anything else to survive?
Once his latest album drops next month, Kayne plans on interning with a designer (Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons, possibly) in hopes of perfecting his passion for fashion. We admire his desire to learn, but something tells us his ego might have a hard time running out for coffee and sorting mail.
Interestingly enough, the rapper is also having a hard time getting laid. Kanye kept a German audience waiting two hours at his concert last night, and then when he finally strolled onstage he announced, “I really need some p***y tonight!” Maybe he’ll meet another intern on the job who will oblige?

Apparently the best way to keep your bank account stacked in the U.K. is to launch a lingerie line. Not a bad gig if you have the bod to do it, and luckily that’s about all Katie Price – aka Jordan – has going on these days. Here she is modeling her latest lingerie venture, Asda Living, in Essex this week. As much as we can’t stand the spotlight-hogging model and mom of three, there’s no denying she’s what Tyra Banks might call “bloody fierce.” [Photo: Splash News Online]
Yep, that’s the dress you wore at your cousin’s christening in 1988. But Whitney Port‘s fashion sense told her to wear it as a shirt, complimented by some pink rubber sandals. Blam! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Supermodel Agyness Deyn – seen last night in NYC – proves that not everyone is going through terrible economic times. Just the cost of her shoes alone could save 5 different failing companies. Jerk. [FilmMagic]
Anna Wintour, the icy bird-like behemoth who heads Vogue magazine, is apparently ready to retire. “Her contract is up soon,” reports a skinny spy. “She’s thinking of retiring. She feels she’s done it all and had enough.”
We imagine numerous staffers are secretly thrilled about her plans, as Wintour is a notoriously tough boss (if this is news to you, read/watch The Devil Wears Prada and get back to us). But the boney, bobbed fashion guru has been blamed for various missteps at the magazine, including passing on collaberating with Project Runway and losing out on ad sales to Elle (who also snagged the Project Runway gig). She’s also allegedly so burnt out from her editrix stint that she could barely muster the energy to save Men’s Vogue, which folded this fall. But is she ready to give up power – and her Starbucks-carrying slaves? [Photo: GettyImages]
Resident MSNBC dork-hottie Dan Abrams is apparently getting a taste of all the good stuff Elle MacPherson has to offer. The odd couple have been spotted getting cozy around NYC since early this summer; most recently they left the exclusive Waverly Inn arm-in-arm.
What’s to like about Abrams? For starters, he’s smart. The guy graduated from Duke University and Columbia Law School, and he’s the Chief Legal Correspondant for NBC News. Plus he’s a testicular cancer survivor, and we all know the ladies go crazy for a weepy survival story. Abrams has already dated actresses like Jaime Murray and Elisabeth Rohm, so he’s no newbie when it comes to hot chicks. Whether he can handle a superstar like Elle ‘The Body’ MacPherson remains to be seen, but surely Dan knows he’s got the reputation of nerds everywhere riding on this relationship. If he can score with the hottest woman on earth, why can’t we? [Page Six. Photos: WireImage, GettyImages ]
The good news just keeps on coming for Girl Next DoorKendra Wilkinson. First, Hugh Hefner‘s ex-girlfriend announced her engagement to Philadelphia Eagles star Hank Baskett, then she signed on to pose for a Mark Ecko lingerie campaign, and now the sporty blonde will make a cameo on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother. Kendra joins Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt on the episode, where she will play a magazine version of herself. Marshall, played by Jason Segal, will happen upon her as he tries to find a place at work to read.
Fellow bootylicious E! reality star Kim Kardashian, who sent Kendra good wishes on her engagement, is also set to make appearance on the series. According to Kendra, this is not about to jumpstart an acting career. “I’m scared of the entertainment business,” she says. “I’m scared of being around all these people. I just hope I can get a behind-the scenes job.” [Source: Us, Foxnews.com; Photo: Getty Images]
