Kristen Stewart Criticized By Rape Groups For Paparazzi Comments

While anyone who’s seen photos of Kristen Stewart being chased by paparazzi can imagine how horrifying the experience must be, directors of numerous sexual assault groups have come forward to question Kristin comparing the harassment to rape in Britain’s Elle magazine.

“I understand that Kristen Stewart was expressing that she feels violated,” Harriest Lessel of the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault told Radar. “Sure violation is a form of sexual assault, but it’s the most serious and the most personal. It’s clearly a poor choice of words.” “Rape is a violation in which one has no choice. A star seeking publicity has choices. Although rape involves loss of privacy, loss of privacy does not constitute rape. Let’s use a little logical thinking here,” said Margaret Lazarus of Rapels.org.

It probably won’t be long before Kristen gives a retraction (she actually played a rape victim in the 2004 film Speak), but do you think she should have to? Is her treatment by the paparazzi a logical outcome of Twilight‘s massive publicity efforts, harassment or something worse? Let us know what you think in our TheFABLife poll.

Chris Brown And Courtney Love Show Their Faces At Marina Abramovic Party

From the middle of March til the end of May, performance artist Marina Abramovic spent every day sitting silently at the Museum of Modern Art in NY as part of her The Artist Is Present exhibit, while “visitors were encouraged to sit silently across from the artist for a duration of their choosing, becoming participants in the artwork.” Finally, after days upon days upon days of holding her bladder (Abramovic claims she held in her bodily functions during the eight hour stints) and being stared upon by the curious, the obsessed, the teary-eyed and even the famous (Lou Reed! James Franco! Kim Cattrall!), it was time for Abramovic to hobnob with the cultural elite at a wrap party. Attending alongside that elite were such unexpected celebs as the cosmetically altered Courtney Love and the cosmetically altering Chris Brown—two people we’d hate to be stuck across from for any length of time. If you had to sit face-to-face with either star, which one would it be? Check out the celebs in the gallery below—you won’t belive what Christina Ricci wore—and let us know who you’d pick in our TheFABLife poll).

Sarah Jessica Parker’s Blue Dress: Seaworthy Or Another Titanic?

Considering the size of Sarah Jessica Parker‘s headgear at the Sex And The City 2 premiere last night in London, she couldn’t be expected to wear that hollowed-out gothic tree at the afterparty as well. So instead she slipped into something more comfortable, a long heavy-looking blue gown we think we can spot a pony in when we let our eyes relax. Are you liking this oceanic outfit? Check out the gallery and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Gwyenth Paltrow Goes Deep At Louis Vuitton Opening

With glamorous women like Gemma Arterton, Elle MacPherson and Kirsten Dunst also attending the opening of Louis Vuitton’s Bond Street Maison in London yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow had her work cut out for her to stand out. Unsurprisingly, the Iron Man 2 star went low, showing off a gaping decolletage on the red carpet. Do you think she pulled it off? Check out the gallery and let us know in our FABLife poll.

Milla Jovovich Goes Big At Cannes

Milla Jovovich stepped out in a big way at the premiere of Exodus—Burnt By The Sun 2 at Cannes this weekend, hitting the red carpet in a voluminous gown that screamed “get out of my way!” even more than those massive guns she swings around in the Resident Evil movies. We love Milla—remember when she made that Bjorkish album in the nineties?—but this looks like an arty variation on something that would go with clogs. Do you like her front bustle? Check out the gallery and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Cannes Craziness: Is Elizabeth Banks Trying Too Hard?

If Elizabeth Banks has been trying to get our attention, she’s certainly succeeding. The star of comedies like Role Models, Zack & Miri Make A Porno and The 40 Year Old Virgin has consistently worn the most dramatic outfits at the Cannes Film Festival this week, ranging from a strawberry swirl of a gown at the Poetry premiere to a blue blast of sparkle-motion at Wednesday’s Armani party to the backless studded marvel above at yesterday’s Artists For Peace & Justice benefit. Should Elizabeth give it a rest or are you loving her flamboyance? Check out our gallery from last night’s charity bash and  let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Marion Cotillard: Cannes Cutie

While we prefer Marion Cotillard with longer hair, the Public Enemies star certainly looked striking at the Chopard anniversary party at Cannes last night, sporting a severe pompadour and sparkly jumpsuit (who does she think she is, Kristen Stewart?). Marion stepped out on the Croisette the next morning in a shiny, strapless dress that ironically looked more casual than the pants she wore the night before. Which look do you like more? Check out both in the gallery below and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Paris Hilton Vs. Avril Lavigne: Who Looks Hotter?

If you’re annoyed by Paris Hilton‘s emaciated frame and Avril Lavigne‘s eternal youthfulness, be glad you weren’t at LA’s annual Race To Erase MS event this weekend. Everyone got an eyeful of Paris’ ribcage to the plunging neckline of her long, silver gown, while Avril rocked a hair ribbon more suitable for Toddlers & Tiaras than a 25-year-old divorcee (though with alleged boyfriend Brody Jenner sticking to his mom on the red carpet, she may have met her child-like match). Check out the gallery and let us know who looked better in our TheFABLife poll.

Whitney Houston Bombs In London: Should She Quit Her Tour?

When will Whitney Houston give up? The singer has been plagued with vocal troubles since her comeback tour began, and last night’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” in London may have been her raspiest yet (why does she do that extended dramatic pause if she can’t hit the big note anyway? It’s like hushing a room before soiling yourself). But despite drug rumors, boos, demands for refunds and the occasional “illness”-related postponement, Whitney still has almost thirty dates left to her European tour. “Sometimes, the old girl sings, but not tonight. I want to do it, but she doesn’t want to,” said Whitney on stage. “She’s getting a little…temperamental, even.” Maybe the old girl should get a time out, then? Canceling an entire tour is a serious headache, but is she damaging her voice and reputation more by staying on the road? Watch her performance of “I Will Always Love You” and let us know whether you think she should hang it up before she’s caught wandering the streets like the “Donka Doo Ball” lady.
