Looks like the Bear Jew is hungry for Peaches. Inglorious Basterds star/Hostel director Eli Roth was spotted kissing British socialite/underwear model Peaches Geldof in his car yesterday, following their quality time at the Vanity Fair Oscar After Party Sunday night. While mum on their depth of their relationship, the 20-year-old divorcee confirmed her date with 37-year-old Roth on Twitter. “At the Vanity Fair Oscar night party with @eliroth who’s got a silent movie star look going down tonight. Very sharp.” (Roth himself has stayed mum on the matter, except for a Twitpic of himself tanning before the big show).
Was it just a wild weekend for Geldof and Roth—who really is 37, we can’t believe it either—or is it something serious? Take a look for yourself in the gallery below.
In the world of people famous for doing nothing, children of celebrities reign supreme. What’s funnier about the fame that’s been handed to them though, is when they actually try to get paid for doing work and prove their ineptitude. Take this most recent example of Peaches Geldof, mostly famous for boozing and feuding with Kelly Osbourne and Lily Allen (who are both members of the Children Of Celebrities club themselves), but who is now modeling lingerie. For whatever reason, the Ultimo lingerie brand opted to hire Peaches and her vacant stare to model its latest line. We’re not experts, but we think this girl might need a Top Model lesson in how to smize. Or at least how not look like a Weekend At Bernie’s-style walking corpse. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Having thoroughly stained England at last week’s NME Awards, Courtney Love has zipped down to Milan for Fashion Week, where she displayed might be her new trademark—garish headwear! Love sported a heavy bejeweled headband at the Vogue.it show Friday, green peacock plumage at last night’s Robert Cavalli show and the black seaweed above at the afterparty. If you ever wondered what Stevie Nicks‘s corpse would look like slowly rising out of Crystal Lake in the world’s worst Friday The 13th remake, now you know.
“Peaches was the perfect choice for this campaign,” said company head Michelle Mone after signing the socialite. “She’s young, edgy with lashings of style.” Interesting choice of words, “lashings.” Take a look at the gallery below and decide if the “it” girl has it.
Tom CruiseandJohn Travolta better open the doors of that Scientology Celebrity Center to accommodate another big star – yes, world, Peaches Geldof has decided to join their ranks! In a toe-curlingly awful documentary shown last night on British TV, “Fearne Meets Peaches”, the spoilt dilettante proved that she’s exactly how we perceived her to be, i.e. rude, self-obsessed, generally unpleasant and speaking in a hilarious Transatlantic twang.
But the big reveal from this unholy televisual mess is that Peaches has been a Scientologist for like, two years now. And she explains her religious beliefs in a typically astute fashion: “It’s like, something I agree with? I felt like I needed to have a spiritual path? It’s like I always kind of felt like I was lacking something when I didn’t have a faith. It’s like pop psychology.”
Well, we’re in no doubt that if Scientology want another follower to give their PR-embattled “religion” a positive boost, they, er, had better look elsewhere. [Video: YouTube]
Finally, a celebrity trend that anyone with a couple of dollars can emulate (if they really want to). Yes, unlike hair extensions, Birkin bags and expensive trips to rehab, some British ladies are rocking the home-dye look by changing their locks to a shade of purple-red usually seen on the side of a cheap home hair-dye kit.
First Cheryl Cole gave her glossy locks a dodgy color rinse, and now Peaches Geldof has followed suit. We actually think Peaches looks pretty good with the new shade – and we’re loving this new recession-era hair chic. [Photo: Splash News Online, ]
Surely it was inevitable: Britain’s most notorious fame-seeking lost little girl finding “refuge” in a celebrity-baiting, eerily-unsettling religion.Ã‚Â And yes, Peaches Geldof has apparently decided to cynically sign up to find her spiritual self in Scientology, because she developed a girl-crush on Katie Holmeswhen she spoke to her for Nylon magazine.
“Peaches was very impressed by Katie, she loved interviewing her and really wanted to become friends with her. She thought that taking up Scientology would be the perfect springboard to work her way into that New York clique,” reports the Evening Standard.
We applaud Peaches’ canny move, because you can’t really be a proper celebrity without a suitably controversial religion to pin your mast to, can you?Ã‚Â And David and Victoria Beckham have proved a little more resistant to the charms of Thetan-loving than first expected, so Peaches looks to be as good as they can get.
The Bruno party hit up London last night, with the film’s star Sacha Baron Cohen dressed up as a very raunchy Household Cavalry guard. Arriving to the strains of “I Will Survive” and with an eclectic group of celebrity guests including his babymamma Isla Fisher, cook Nigella Lawson and the ubiquitous self-titled “party granny” Jo Wood, Bruno predictably got controversial. He first said “It’s great to see so many D-listers here tonight. I’m talking to you, Pixie Geldof,” and then added he was looking forward to meeting Prince Harry, “because I’ve heard he’s a total slut!”
But was it as cheeky as the Borat premiere in London three years ago? His Kazakhstani alter-ego dressed up in a shiny yellow jacket (which actually looks bang on-trend with the current 80s revival), and brought along his “family” in a horse and cart, including his hooker sisters. We’re not sure, but there’s no other premieres like it. [Photos: Getty Images]
In case we hadn’t given her enough attention,Peaches Geldof is now a lesbian. She’s been “spontaneously” spotted kissing various gal pals around town recently and turned up at the London premiere of Bruno last night wearing a white wedding-dress style outfit with her matchy-matchy friend Sandra S. Well, if it worked forLindsay Lohan, and if you’ve already gone down the starter marriage/overdose/shoplifting/posing naked on the beach route in order to grab headlines, what else is an attention-seeking sad little girl celebrity to do?
But it reminded us of the last time Sacha Baron Cohen did a huge premiere in London – three years ago for his film Borat. Then, Peaches — looking like the archetypal touchy teen and dressed in totally un-styled chain store clothes — almost seemed unsure about the cameras. Ah, it was almost a more innocent time.
