We’d like to save the best for last, so we’re going to start with who didn’t hit the mark at last night’s Tribeca Ball in New York. The event was honoring Robert de Niro, FYI, and was held at the New York Academy of Art. We’ll start with Solange Knowles on the left. Love the coral lips and print blouse, but not exactly loving those high-waisted, shiny trousers. Taking “shiny” to a whole new level is Carla Gugino, in the middle. She’s such a beautiful woman, but that bouffant hair is all wrong, especially when paired with that red, satin dress. We get she was trying to go retro, but couldn’t get it right. Then there’s Paz de la Huerta on the right. We don’t even know what to say, or where to begin. Just … NO.
We’re moving on to the meh pile next, which comprises Padma Lakshmi and Helena Christensen. To see what they wore, and what we have to say, click after the jump. The best dressed lot also awaits you! Read more…

Happy Columbus Day, you lucky people who get Monday off from work! The Italian explorer Christopher Columbus braved the murky Atlantic Ocean in search of silk, spices and other wonders of China and India (the countries he was attempting to find). Instead he landed right smack into the Bahamas, a happy accident that eventually resulted in the “discovery” of the good ol’ United States. In honor of this national holiday, Scandalist is exploring Columbus’ homeland and the goods Italy is infamous for — its women.
Which hotties are hopping into Sophia Loren‘s Italian leather shoes and taking over her title as Italy’s prima donna? Peep the pics below and let us know how well we’ve rated these Italian hotties after the jump.
Though she’s taken up kabballah and adopted a posh British accent, don’t be fooled: the Motor City mama was born Madonna Ciccone, and raised in a strict Italian-Catholic household. Which may account for some of her rebellion.

20. Aria Giovanni
You might be familiar with this Penthouse pet and adult film actress from such films as Alabama Jones and the Busty Crusade or Aria. And though she’s not entirely of Italian descent, she certainly is 100% hot.

19. Carla Gugino
The Entourage hottie got her start opposite another one of our Italian hotties — Alyssa Milano, on Who’s The Boss? The raven-haired fox has brains to boot with that hot bod: she was her class’ valedictorian.
