Here they are, our picks for Best Dressed at this year’s Costume Institute Gala. Our finalists captured a mix of moods, from old-school glam girls Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Greene, to pops of color on Kristen Stewart and J-Lo, to the risky and avant garde looks on Christina Ricci and Ginnifer Goodwin. The one thing they all have in common – serious confidence, which is our favorite red carpet accessory.
Christina Ricci wants some more booty for her behind. You know… some more rwar! for her rear. She translated while preening at the Chrysalis 9th Annual Butterfly Ball, “I’m desperately trying to convince my boyfriend to get me the Brazilian Booty Lift!”
The 30-year old actress was convinced, after watching an informercial for the DVD workout series, that the killer combination of dance, lunges, plyometrics and more would pack in more junk in her trunk. She continued saying, “I was like, ‘Don’t you want me to have that ass?’ They are just Brazilian butts!”
Ricci’s shaping up for her Broadway debut this September, and the rest of her’s looking more than fine, as photographs from the Ball reveal. She thanks the treadmill for maintaining her bodacious bod. She revealed, “I do a lot of walking on my treadmill because I injured myself once jogging. Now I just walk on an incline….I really try to do something physically active every day.” Work it!
Sandra Bullock wasn’t the only estranged wife to step out this weekend. Brooke Mueller celebrated husband Charlie Sheen‘s plea agreement on his domestic abuse case by attending the 9th Annual Butterfly Ball in LA. Not only did Brooke show up sans Charlie, she wasn’t sporting a wedding ring either. While this would seem support rumors that the Sheens are splitting, this may just be a joke on the paparazzi like that mustache Charlie wore after visiting a hooker/answering an emergency “12 step” call.
Also attending the bash were stars like Christina Ricci, Ben Stiller, Matthew Morrison, Ryan Phillipe, AnnaLynne McCord, Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart. While we certainly couldn’t blame Mueller for putting her marriage behind her, we do have to wonder if she was using a ticket sent to Charlie Sheen—it’s not like she’s a celebrity on her own…yet. See photos of the stars in the gallery below.
Kate Hudsonand Gwyneth Paltrow must be the best of friends—they’re apparently joined at the hip. The blonde scions of Goldie Hawn and Blythe Danner clung to each other for dear life at the 150th birthday gala for Chopard jewelry in NYC last night. While their companionship may have been contractually obligated, it’s also possible Miss Hudson put up with being called “Katherine” all night so on-lookers wouldn’t have as good a view at her alleged boob job. See photos of these stars and more in the red carpet gallery below.
Since we can’t celebrate peace or prosperity while we’re at war and our economy is in the dumps, we’re ringing in the new year with the next best thing: celebrity bikini pics! Our gallery is ordered from one to 100, with one being the hottest. We tried sticking mostly to candid photos, but bent the rules a few times — especially for Miranda Kerr (her Victoria’s Secret shots are just too hot!).
Christina Ricci called off her engagement to Andre The GiantOwen Benjamin,just three months ago, but now she is getting hot and heavy with new beau Curtis Buchanan. The twolovebirds heated up the Miami beach with their fit bodies, making out and swimming in the ocean before walking back to their exclusive beachfront hotel. Oohlala! [Photos: Splash News Online]
Christina Ricci is engaged to her boyfriend of about five months, comedian Owen Benjamin. The odd couple (she is 5’1″ and he towers over her at 6’6″!) met on the set of their new film All’s Faire In Love and went public with their relationship on Halloween.
Owen and the soon-to-be Mrs. Benjamin held an engagement party at the Palihouse in Hollywood, CA last Saturday where the couple and their pals reportedly partied late into the night to celebrate.
