No more fashioning tiny little cowboy hats out of duct tape for you! EW reports that Faith Hill and Tim McGraw Barbies are due out from Mattell this October. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Tim and Faith sent us photos of every detailÃ¢â‚¬Â doll designer Linda Kyaw says of the $69.99 doll duo. Ã¢â‚¬Å“including TimÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s complete suit, piece-by-piece; and FaithÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dress, make-up, and clear shots of her hair preference.” Let’s hope Faith’s hair preference is “hacked apart by a pair of safety scissors and colored in with watermelon-scented marker,” because that’s all our Barbies sported!
“The couple knew exactly what they wanted to see in doll form, and they helped us achieve the best possible results,” Kyaw explains. We were kidding about all the Barbie abuse, of course; clearly the dolls are collector’s items only. No one needs to see Tim McGraw’s face get chewed on by the family dachshund or Faith Hill’s leg get jammed in a heating grate, not even in toy form.
Scotty McCreery is the new American Idol! The teenaged country singer beat Lauren Alaina to win the the title which capped off a spectacular show. The two hour Season 10 finale took place at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles and they really packed in as much as they could. Beyonce dazzled on stage, Jennifer Lopez sparkled in a very JLo-esque jumpsuit and old and new American Idol contestants turned up in hordes. Like Sanjaya Malakar — remember him? A lot of this seasons contestants got to sing with their idols like Tony Bennett, Tim McGraw, Tom Jones, Judas Priest …. and Lady Gaga! Jack Black rocking out? Classic!
But more than anything, we were just happy to see some of our contestants and winners of past American Idol’s. Adam Lambert who was so glam it hurt, Allison Iraheta, Jason Castro (with his preggers wife Mandy Mayhall), Kris Allen… the list goes on. We’ve put a gallery of arrivals at the event so you can memory check everyone who came. Congratulations, Scotty! Can you believe he’s just 17? What a massive moment for country music.

We were totally planning to write about the puffy pink party dress Leighton Meester wore to last night’s Country Strong screening in LA, until we took a closer look at what Gwyneth Paltrow was wearing. Looking at her from the left, it appears to be a bland, body-covering tarp. But catch from the back right and…WOW. Did Gwynnie really go commando to pull this look off? If anything needed to be country strong, it was the string holding this outfit together.
Get a closer look at this eye-catcher (and Leighton’s—did she make it out of used pieces of gum?) in the gallery below.

Some of the biggest women in entertainment came out for the 13th annual “Unforgettable Evening” benefit in LA last night, raising money for the EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund. Among the stars present were Reese Witherspoon (making her first red carpet appearance since splitting with Jake Gyllenhaal), Taylor Swift, Olivia Wilde, Christina Applegate, Julianne Hough, and Faith Hill, whose hubby Tim McGraw posed hatless for a change. As slinky and stylish as Swift and Wilde were, the most striking lady of the night may have been Rita Wilson, who sported some serious shoe bling next to husband Tom Hanks. Check out her jewel-encrusted footwear in the gallery below.
