After becoming new BFFs in Cannes, Peaches Geldof and Paris Hilton hit the clubs in London, and in one fell swoop have become the most powerful attention-seeking double-headed paparazzi-baiting monster known to mankind. The two talent-free “creative” celebutantes were out at new nightspot Baroque, and spent most of the night gossiping away in the corner.Ã‚Â Paris only interrupted her night to request her own song Stars Are Blind from the club DJ — only to act surprised when he didn’t have it. Oh, come ON, love.
The Cannes Film Festival is not just a film competition, but a red carpet battle to see who can bring the chicest and most glam red carpet style to the French Riviera. From Angelina Jolie in Versace to Anna Mouglalis in Karl Lagerfeld to Kerry Washington in Zuhair Murad, these stars really brought it on. Check out our gallery of the 2009 Cannes Film Festival’s Best Dressed!
Some stars bring their chicest getups to the Cannes Film Festival, and some totally miss the mark with their outfits. From sheer atrocities to overdone trim, these starlets really didn’t make the cut when it comes to red carpet fashion.

Has party girl Peaches Geldof mended her former wild ways? The 20-year-old divorcee British socialite was especially reserved last night, when popping into the Hollywood Reporter/Creative Coalition party at the Martini Terrace during the Cannes Film Festival. Minus new BFF Paris Hilton, Peaches arrived in a long floral dress, a conservative choice for the reputed wild child.
Peaches took a seat to the side in the VIP lounge and let attention be focused on her pals rather than her. After quietly chatting, Peaches headed out around 10:30 pm, going practically unnoticed by partygoers. [Photo: Getty Images]
A motherly match made in showbiz hell? Or the best, most mental-sounding celebrity pairing for a long while? Apparently Courtney Love has take it upon herself to be an American mom for Peaches Geldof, sharing her home and her wardrobe with the erstwhile Brit when she’s in the U.S.
“Courtney was one of the last people to see Peaches’ mum Paula Yates before she died and has always promised to look out for her girls. She has a special soft spot for Peaches — and the pair chat regularly on the phone and, as is the case these days, over Twitter,” a source says.
But Courtney couldn’t just be spreading maternal love — nope, reportedly she’s also been spreading rumors that Pamela Anderson is broke and trashy. Britain’s Metro reports la Love as claiming Pammy “doesn’t have a credit card” and lives on a “trailer park in Malibu”. Ladies, ladies! How old are we here? [Photos: FilmMagic, Getty Images]
UPDATE: It seems Peaches wasn’t the perpetrator of what isn’t in any way being called DrinksGate! No, in fact she had the drink poured over her – because she allegedly threw a shoe at a group of guys in the club. Apparently, she thought it’d be “funny,” until the bloke squared up to her and poured a drink over her. Which meant Peaches called the police herself. Over a drink-pouring incident. Of course.
Peaches Geldof was questioned by police at hip London hangout Bungalow 8 last night after an incident where someone … had a drink poured over them. Rock’n'roll! Woo! She’s already dealt with the cops over (numerous) shoplifting accusations, and is clearly aiming for the full teenage range of crimes. (Next up, she’ll probably smoke a cigarette indoors, or try and have a beer on the London Underground! She’s so crazy.)
The British Paris Hilton (oh, come on, she is) claimed she doesn’t drink anymore in an interview last week, but we’re suspicious that anyone sober could end up having an intimate chat with the cops at 3:30am in a hotel lobby. She left soon after though, after kicking off her night at burlesque drag bar Madame Jo-Jo’s, no doubt to go home and reflect on the awesome emptiness of her life. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Americans give the English Barack Obama (for a couple days, at least), and the English are giving us another TV presenter to take over the schedules just like Cat Deeley. Currently the darling of the stylish London party scene (she’s mates with Kelly Osbourne, the Geldof girls and Lily Allen amongst others), Alexa Chung has presented countless music and fashion-based TV shows and has been heralded by the style press in London as the coolest girl going. Which she kind of is. And she’s headed to Brooklyn (of course).
“Alexa has been offered a big show over there so she’s heading off this summer. She’s picked out an apartment really near to Daisy Lowe‘s in trendy Williamsburg in Brooklyn, close to where Peaches Geldof moved last year,” says a source.Ã‚Â Agyness watch out – let the hipster-off begin!
Peaches Geldof has been a little quiet of late getting divorced and hanging out at Bungalow 8 in London, but she makes up for it in an interview with Grazia magazine, where we actually start to like her a little bit. (Yikes.) How can you fail to warm to a 20 year old who defends Madonna‘s choice of 22-year-old Jesus Luz by saying the Material Girl just fancied some “hot, young c*ck”? Or admits she fancies ranty chef Gordon Ramsay because of his “intense lines” and thinks she may have a chance because “he’s meant to be an adulterer, so who knows?” And who finally admits she hasn’t really done anything by saying, “I hope that one day I will do something that my family can all be proud of.” You’ve still got time, Peaches – just stop marrying boys in bands with stupid hair and launching pretentious magazines. That’ll be a start. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Peaches Geldof is back in London and busy making her presence felt by turning up to everything and anything where there may be a camera. Last night she joined the ranks of British celebrities Emma Bunton, Britain’s Got Talent presenter Amanda Holden and various soap actresses by attending the Children’s Champion Awards, which honors those who work with children.
Does Peaches work with children? (Not unless you count her ex-husband…heh). Has she got any children? Has she ever expressed a desire to give anything back to society by helping out needy children? Why did she think that brown dress was a good idea? And those shoes? Was this just a blatant attempt to get in the papers yet again? Too many rhetorical questions in one go. But surely she is an early candidate for Free-Loading Attention Whore of 2009… [Photo: Splash News Online]
