A WTF? Fashion Moment Courtesy Maison Martin Margiela

Just when I think my fashion sense s'all sophisticated --and I begin to take pride in my ability to find beauty in what most would quickly deem fug-- a designer like Maison Martin Margiela earns high praise for his showing at Paris Fashion Week and leaves me totally confused (and in this case, also kind of scared).

I mean really with the hair? It's "art" and people aren't really going to wear these pieces, right?

FYI: Margiela's Paris fashion show on Tuesday marked the brand's 20th anniversary; a landmark event made more significant by abounding rumors that Margiela was looking for a successor and ready to retire. However, a spokesperson for the always elusive designer, who refuses to directly answer questions from reporters, tried to assuage the fears of his followers, and reportedly 'categorically denied' Margiela, 51, was going anywhere...for now.

In addition to a coat, seemingly made from blonde Barbie doll hair [pictured above]
, the Margiela spring 2009 collection featured an array of crazy-ass wigs, ranging from enormous platinum afros, worn backwards, to I-don't-what-this-is.

Though it has teeth and undoubtedly bites.

But set aside the wigs, and odd use of hair, for a second. And take in possibly the worst camel toe known to womankind.

It's either that or a backwards thong. Regardless, talk about uncomfortable. It almost (emphasis on almost) makes you see past the M&M-inspired leather jacket equipped with sleeve stirrups; or that the model's face is obscured by some sort of nylon-looking mask.

Still, if this collection's all about fun, and not meant to be taken seriously, then kudos! Job well done.

To think I pegged SamRo as the t-shirt with oversized swim trunks-type.


Jessica Biel is the Catch of the Day

And yes, unfortunately someone thinks she's a keeper.

Biel has, count em', five movies in the works (six if you count her short film Hole in the Paper Sky, which she, reportedly, executive produced). The most imminent--Easy Virtue--is slated for a November release in the UK.

After that, Biel, 26, will star in a movie called Powder Blue; and will follow in the footsteps of Lindsay Lohan by playing a stripper (cause it worked out so well for the latter). That gem is supposed to hit theaters sometime next year.

Pictures are from a photo shoot for Flaunt magazine.

Meg Ryan & Dennis Quaid: Divorced But Still Making Each Other Mad

Dennis Quaid is apparently pissed that ex-wife Meg Ryan recently divulged unflattering details about their troubled nine-year marriage.

In the October issue of InStyle Ryan, 46, said "Dennis was not faithful to me for a long time, and that was very painful," adding "I found out more about that after I was divorced." She then went on to explain her remarks during an interview with Diane Sawyer, saying I just wanted to "fill in the gaps for people."

But it seems Quaid, 54, would rather have the gaps unfilled or something, cause he fumed to NY Daily News.

"It was eight years ago, and I find it unbelievable that Meg continues publicly to rehash and rewrite the story of our relationship," he said. "Also, I find it regrettable that our son, Jack, has to be reminded in a public way of the turmoil and pain that every child feels in a divorce."

Quaid, who has since remarried and had twins, added "I, myself, have moved on years ago and am fortunate to have a happy, beautiful family."


FYI: Ryan also dished to InStyle about her romantic relationship with her Proof of Life co-star Russel Crowe, who she had an affair with while she was still married to Quaid.

“I think he took a big hit. But Russell didn’t break up the marriage. He was definitely there at the end, but it wasn’t his fault," she said. "I was a mess. I hurt him too at the end. I couldn’t be in another long relationship, it wasn’t the time for that. So I got out.”

Jack Osbourne Helps Chase Down a Mugger

The Jack Osbourne of yore, i.e the Jack Osbourne we knew and kinda liked on the MTV reality show The Osbournes, is nowhere to be found.

He's slimmed down, appears to lead a healthy lifestyle, climbs rocks in his spare time and helps chase down muggers?

Yes apparently Osbourne, 22, helped chase down a mugger on Saturday, after he reportedly saw him steal a woman's bag.

Along with five other good Samaritans, including a paramedic, Osbourne then wrestled the mugger and pinned him to the ground until authorities arrived.

“I could see the girl was in trouble, it just felt like the natural thing to do," Osbourne (The Prince of Sunshine?) said. "I’m glad it turned out okay.” [People, News of the World]

Um, yeah.

Travis Barker Released From Hospital

After nine days, Travis Barker has been released from the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital in Augusta, Georgia. [People]

"Travis is in good condition and was discharged this morning," Burn Center spokesperson Beth Frits said on Monday. "He has left Augusta."
Barker, who lives in Los Angeles, is headed back to California, according to a source. "He's on a bus headed to L.A." the source said. "Trust me, he will never fly again – ever."

The musician, 32, was admitted in critical condition in the early hours of Sept. 20 after a Learjet 60 carrying him and five others crashed upon takeoff from the South Carolina's Columbia Metropolitan Airport, about an hour away.

Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein, who also survived the crash, was released from the hospital on Friday. [NYT]

Where is Taylor Momsen's Moms?

Yes 'Moms' is intentional. And I don't want to preach or tell anyone how to raise their kids (esp. since I don't have any, thank Bob) or anything. But after seeing a bunch of recent pics of Gossip Girls' Taylor Momsen, one question comes to mind. What are her parents doing, letting their 15-year-old daughter leave the house looking like this?!?


Momsen is like supermodel gorge. But the outfit (and makeup) she wore to the 5th Annual Fashion Rocks event on Sept. 5 is risqué even for an adult. Momsen has been a whopping 15 for all of two months!You'd never know it though.

Here's Momsen looking older than her years again at a Metropolitan Opera Gala on Sept. 22


It's hard to believe that eight years ago this was Momsen as Cindy Lou Who in the live-action, Jim Carrey, film version of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Scarlett Johansson & Ryan Reynolds Wed in Canada

Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson got married in Canada over the weekend, according to People.

And the world just got more boring.

The ceremony was reportedly held at a remote wilderness retreat outside of Vancouver, B.C. Only about a handful of family and friends were in attendance.

Johansson, 23, began dating Reynolds, 31, last year shortly after his split from singer Alanis Morissette. This is the first wedding for both. But probably not the last.

Heather Locklear Arrested for DUI

Heather Locklear was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of prescription drugs on Saturday afternoon in Santa Barbara County, Calif.

"Around 4:30 p.m., a female witness saw Heather Locklear driving erratically while leaving a parking lot in Montecito," California Highway Patrol spokesman Tom Marshall told People. "The witness said Locklear was revving her engine loudly, and backed over a pair of sunglasses several times." (She was probably picturing Denise Richards.)

Because Locklear, 47, appeared "disoriented and impaired," she was taken to a local CHP station and drug and alcohol tests were administered, Marshall said. The actress was cooperative.

"Alcohol was ruled out as a factor, but based on the officer's observations, we believe Locklear was under the influence of prescription medication," Marshall added.

Locklear was arrested on suspicion of DUI and being under the influence of a controlled substance. She was booked at a local jail around 7 p.m., and released hours later. [People]

This isn't all that surprising. Locklear has been kind of mess for at least the last several months. In June she even underwent four weeks of treatment in Arizona, supposedly for anxiety and depression.

I think she might actually be wearing really short shorts or some kind of bodysuit thing.

Clay Aiken Gives First Post-Coming Out Interview

Clay Aiken, 29, gave his first post-coming out interview to Diane Sawyer on Thursday morning. And DListed is right, Gayken is likable (gasp!). And he's also kind of funny.

Anyway, don't be weirded out by the intro. (which includes Aiken singing a lullaby to his six-week old baby). It picks up after that.

Additional Note: While Claymates, (i.e. Gayken's fanatical fans, who I guess, consist primarily of middle-aged women), have, reportedly, been mostly supportive of his revealed homosexuality, comments left on message boards suggest that at least a few of his fans are kinda having a hard time dealing with the news.

"I've cried a river of tears and truthfully do not know where I stand right now. I am envious of those who can take this news and continue to state their unconditional love and support for Clay"--Clayncfan at The Clayboard

Others just flat out refuse to believe it.

"[The People cover] Reeks of photoshop to me. We can probably even find the picture of Clay's head from a recent fan photo if we look hard enough. Believe if you want, I just know that nothing is true unless it is printed in the fan club..."-- Playbiller at

T-Pain Adds a Hearse to His Car Collection

Big Tymers bragged about having "an ol' school Caddy with a 'diamond in the back'" in their 2002 hit song "Still Fly."

These six long years later, someone has finally outdone them.

T-Pain added a '91 Cadillac hearse to his collection of 22 cars(!), recently.

And if that weren't enough...

"I just got a blue top put on it," he says. "And I've got a matching blue fiberglass coffin in the back."

Dayum! Stunna.

'What did T-Pain put in that blue fiberglass coffin,' you ask? "Speakers and TVs," of course.

Also, the hearse apparently came equipped with an aroma. No, not new car smell. An embalming fluid aroma. You see, shortly before T-Pain, 22, bought the hearse it was actually used to transport dead bodies.

"We had to Febreeze the hell out of the car," he says. "Everyone is afraid of it. But I don’t think of it in that way. It’s a car."


The hearse was also used as a prop (of sorts) in a recent photo shoot for T-Pain's upcoming album Thr33 Ringz, to-be-released on Nov. 11.

T-Pain's other newly purchased whip is a '07 Lamborghini Gallardo, BTW.
