We know how it gets at this time of year. You’re invited to a million different events, you don’t always have time to shop for new outfits for them, since you’re really supposed to be shopping for presents for other people. So you’re stuck either recycling party dresses from past events, borrowing friends’ dresses, or running into a store, blindly grabbing the first thing you see and changing in the restroom at work. This is what we imagine happened to Parker Posey, Fergie, Chloe Sevigny, LeAnn Rimes and Kevin McHale over the weekend. We really doubt they looked in the mirror before attending the special screening of W.E. at MoMA in New York and the Trevor Project’s Trevor Live! event in Hollywood. They just have more important things to do. See for yourselves…

We don’t usually cover the Broadway beat here at TheFABLife, but for Pee-Wee Herman, we will make an exception. In case you hadn’t heard, Pee Wee (played by Paul Reubens) is bringing his legendary Pee-Wee Herman Show stage show to the Great White Way for a few months so that those of us who grew up on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse can relive our childhood. Mecca lecca hi, mecca heiny ho indeed.
It’s safe to say Pee-Wee is one of the biggest influences in our young life and we can quote approximately 99% of Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure verbatim. (By the way, you do know that actor Mark Holton, a.k.a. bike thief Francis Buxton went on to play John Wayne Gacy, right? Scariest poster ever? Yes, yes it is.) So, we personally can’t wait to see the Broadway show, but apparently neither could a lot of celebrities. Check out who was there on opening night, including some of our Playhouse faves like Miss Yvonne (the most beautiful woman in Puppetland!) and Cowboy Curtis (played here by Phil Lamarr, not Laurence Fishburne – he’s busy with other things these days.)

We are Target people. We go in that store needing batteries and come out with $100 worth of crap. Their designer clothing line, where A-list designers create a lower-priced line to be sold to the broke, downtrodden masses is one of our favorite things about the store, and the latest designer hopping on board is Zac Posen. Posen’s line launches on April 25, but there was a launch party last night at the New Yorker Hotel full of celebs who can afford the real thing, and they were all decked out in the designer’s duds.
Stars like Claire Danes, Selma Blair and Parker Posey were all wearing clothes from the lower-priced line – some of them we loved, and some were, as our mom says, a little too “busy” for our tastes. Still, we totally plan to pillage the racks to find one in our size. It’s haute couture, after all.

Was last night Hot Mess Night and no one told us? While the Character Approved Awards were confusing passerby in NYC, the Costume Designer’s Guild Awards was bringing the noise in Beverly Hills. Ladies like Anna Paquin, Emily Blunt, Kristen Bell and Anna Kendrick—not to mention fashion-forward fellows like Eddie Izzard and Alan Cummings—were on hand to celebrate those who keep actors looking great on screen. While you’d expect such stylists to make a big impression on the carpet, some—we’re looking at you (and quickly looking away), Mona May—might have been trying a little too hard. See who wore what in the gallery below.

We admit that our only real knowledge of Lyme disease came from watching the Seattle season of “The Real World” when crazy Irene, afflicted with the disease, went nuts on her cast mates and ended up getting smacked in the face by Stephen. Obviously there’s more to the disease than shouting at your roommates and talking to yourself, and it’s proven to be debilitating enough to knock Parker Posey out of an upcoming play she was to star in.
Posey, 40, was set to star in “This,” an Off-Broadway comedy, but a statement released by the theater company said she was forced to withdraw “due to a developing case of Lyme disease.” Posey has long been a fave of ours, mainly because of her role as a waitress at the DQ in “Waiting for Guffman,” and we hope she recovers quickly.
