Considering yesterday’s Tribeca Ball red carpet was more meh than fabulous, we expected the Tribeca Film Festival’s Vanity Fair party to up the ante. Sadly, it didn’t. There were some stand-outs. Jessica White nailed it again in a cream gown with lace overlay and a sexy slit up the draped thigh. Helena Christensen looked fresh and fine in a summery white cocktail frock which was yards better than her pastoral maxi at the Tribeca Ball. Sticking to the white theme was Leelee Sobieski wore a very simple Jil Sander gown (see above right) that we absolutely love. Unfortunately, she killed it with a weird Star Wars-esque ‘do.
There were a couple of other head-scratchers too. Like why would Catherine Zeta-Jones put on that terribly unflattering metallic gray Michael Kors frock? Why would someone as gorgeous as Lily Cole put on a glorified sack? Why would Dakota Fanning (who was also a juror in the World Competition Category) put on a weird headband when her hot pink Lanvin dress was lovely enough on its own? To answer all these questions and to ask a couple of your own, head to the gallery to check out what everyone wore.
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…
The FABLife is playing March Celebrity Madness this month, putting 64 of our favorite stars into brackets and having you vote to decide our ultimate FAB icon. First we’ll be pitting four similar celebs against each other in the divisionals, with the winners pairing (and squaring) off in our Sweet 16 until only one is left standing. It’s just like the NCAA, except…ok, it’s nothing like the NCAA.
The ladies of Sports Illustrated‘s annual swimsuit issue are a happy, hug-ready bunch at promotional events, but only one will get to sweeten up our Sweet 16. Will it be T.O. Show vet Jessica White, Just Go With It‘s Brooklyn Decker, cover girl Irina Shayk or “Rookie Of The Year” Kate Upton?
Welcome to The Daily Hot – our round-up of the sexiest pics and stories on the interwebs. Today’s steaming pile of hotness:
1. Playboy model
, and her giant boobs, on the beach in Hawaii.
2. Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model
sizzles in topless photo shoot.
3. Buff daddy
hit the beach with son Levi and daughter Vida.
We’re trying to keep up here. Naomi Campbell pulled a Naomi Campbell on model Jessica White by banning her from her 40th birthday party. And now Jessica White has apparently pulled a Naomi Campbell of her own byÃ‚Â supposedly pulling a woman’s hair while hitting her.
Jessica allegedly went crazy over a cab dispute in New York, and her beat down is said to have causedÃ‚Â Ã‚Â ”abrasions, swelling and substantial pain.” Naomi’s legacy lives on. Hallelujah!
Jess’ reps are nay-saying the whole incident and her lawyer Mark Jay Heller has stated, “The Sports Illustrated models that I represent, Rachel Hunter and Jessica White, are all good sports and super people, they are not the type of women that get into cat fights. Stories concerning celebrities frequently get blown up…” True. And celebrities often pull hair and hit people. We’re just sayin’.
Heller also revealed that Jessica had just broken up with Sean Penn and was celebrating her back-to-singleton status with girlfriends! And our reaction was…. Jessica was dating Sean Penn? Why didn’t we remember this? And yeah, breakups are hard, but if this whole story is true, then don’t go around clocking people. Get a hair cut. Or buy some news shoes.
