More Gossip Girl spoilers!

I know, I know, I'm going crazy with the Gossip Girl posts...but this was too good to pass up! Looks like there's going to be new hook-ups this season!

Spotted: Blake Lively (a.k.a. Serena van der Woodsen) lip-locking her newest on-screen love interest in Times Square. This new boy will be played by John Patrick Amedori

Also spotted...Taylor Momsen smooching Chace Crawford on the set of Gossip Girl. Seems like Little J's new friendship with Blair will soon be ruined.

Runaway chic?

Spotted: Taylor Momsen on the set of Gossip Girl. Is little Jenny Humphrey planning to run away from home?

Usher...lingerie designer?

This seems more like something Diddy would do!

At lingerie designer Marlies Dekkers's show in Paris yesterday, Usher told WWD that he would like to design a lingerie line himself.

It's not limited to only women, however. He plans on including men's styles as well.

Men's lingerie? Does he mean boxers and briefs?

He told WWD, "Comfort and intimacy is very important," and said that some of his designs are featured in his new video, "Trading Places."

Do you think him and his wife will be wearing matching sets from this collection?

It's Paris Fashion Week!

Paris Fashion Week has just begun and I couldn't be more excited! Stay tuned for updates, and my fav looks from the runway!

Britney Spears has a sex tape

Just in the midst of her big comeback, Britney Spears has hit another roadblock. Her former boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib is claiming that the pop singer has a sex tape.

Like a true paparazzo, he's willing to sell it for "the right price."

He tells Heat magazine, "There is such a tape, but I won't discuss prices for hypothetical enquiries. Unless there is a locked-in deal, I will go no further."

Supposedly, the video was shot in Mexico, and features Britney in nothing but a pink wig.

This news really infuriates me. Why can't anyone let Britney succeed? This jerk needs to back off and let Britney do her thing!

This is just ridiculous

Tyra must be happy! Her CW show, America's Next Top Model, is going to be a video game for Nintendo DS.

In the game, players will guide a model through challenges and photoshoots. If they make it to the end, they will be crowned the winner.

The game will be available in stores November 7th.

Seriously...who would buy this? Tyra will probably have to give them out on her talk show, although she's probably too cheap to do that. It would be interesting to see what the video game Tyra looks like though...

I heart Versace...

And Versace loves hearts, which was evident when Donatella placed 3-D hearts throughout her Spring 2009 collection. Although there was no distinct theme, the collection was true to Versace's signature style: sexy, glamorous, and fierce.

Milan Fashion Week: Spring '09 - Dsquared²

Dsquared² unveiled a very wearable collection in Milan this week. Crisp oxford shirts and wide-leg jeans were staples of the collection, and were accessorized with scarves, hats, sunglasses, and more specifically, a red bomber jacket. The collection also featured sexy swimwear, flowy, full-length dresses, and a few looks for men.

Another fabulous collection from two of my favourite designers!

Dolce & Gabbana throws a pajama party in Milan!

Dolce & Gabbana sure knows how to make pajamas look chic. Their spring 2009 collection featured spotted and striped silk men's pajamas and structured silhouettes, including Mickey Mouse ear sleeves. Models were adorned in precious stones and embroidery, which added glamour to the sleepwear turned to daywear. The finale featured romantic ball gowns, with full skirts and decorated with roses.

Front row attendees included Dita Von Teese, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

Sacha Baron Cohen invades Milan Fashion Week!

Sacha Baron Cohen sure knows how to pull a prank.

The comedian stormed onto the catwalk and did his best runway walk down the stage during the Agatha Ruiz de la Prada show in Milan today.

Using a fake pass, Cohen waltzed past security guards backstage, before heading onto the runway in a blonde wig and layers and layers of clothing.

Cohen was channeling his character, Bruno, an Austrian fashionista, for his new film, Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male.

Security was called in after Cohen refused to leave, and Italian police took him to the nearby station, demanding his name, age, address, and details from his passport.

I feel bad for the designer, but this is definitely a brilliant stunt! At least she'll be getting more press for her show this way!

Check out the video of this incident below.

This was bound to happen...

After coming out as a lesbian on the radio show, Loveline, Lindsay Lohan is taking it back. Well, at least her publicist is trying to.

"There was no confession," said her publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnik to TVGuide.com. She deemed the two as very close friends, not a couple.

I was a little bit shocked when Lindsay came out, I really think this is just a ploy to keep the attention on her.

We'll see what happens later on down the road!

Gucci's Spring '09 collection compared to Zara's designs

Image via style.com

No wonder I loved this collection! The front row attendees of Gucci's spring '09 show however, weren't too impressed.

WWD said, "Gucci looks are all over Zara," and The Wall Street Journal blog predicted that the suits in the collection "could easily hit the shelves of Zara and H&M months before they get to Gucci’s boutiques."

Although I agree that I could see a lot of these looks being sold at Zara, maybe Frida Giannini should be cut some slack. There's a reason why these collections are deemed ready-to-wear, and not couture. Although the designs are supposed to be innovative enough to set the trends and inspire mass retailers, designers have to keep in mind that their clothing must be wearable enough for their customers to sport them.

Take Gianfranco Ferré's collection, for example. It was possibly one of the most brilliant collections from Milan Fashion Week so far, but really, how many people will wear that in real-life, other than the true fashionista, who's also ultra wealthy (a very rare breed)?

If Gucci-inspired looks are going to be worn by many come spring, then it looks like Giannini did her job as a designer.

Rihanna adds designer to her resume

Finally! A celebrity line that we can actually look forward to!

Singing superstar, Rihanna, has revealed that she will be designing her own fashion line.

"I'm not one to rush into anything. I want to take my time," she told WWD. "I can't say when it will be released, but it's definitely going to happen."

Ever since she broke away from the image her record label created for her (Circa: release of "Umbrella" and the unveiling of what now is 2008's most coveted hairstyle), Rihanna's been proving to the public that she is a true fashionista. I mean come on, who else can rock an H&M corset on the red carpet?

I can't wait to see what she comes up with!

Catching up: Clay and Lindsay come out, and Ed Westwick is determined to prove he won't join them.

Former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken comes out as a gay man on the new issue of People [Perezhilton].

Lindsay Lohan
confirms her relationship with Samantha Ronson [BBC].

Spotted: Gossip Girl badboy Ed Westwick making out with actress Drew Barrymore. Looks like he's really trying to put those gay rumours to rest [Vanity Fair].

The beginning of her comeback

The artwork for Britney Spears's new single, "Womanizer." Thoughts?

Angelina Jolie's a doll

Image via dailymail.co.uk

Behold the Angelina doll - "so lifelike, it's creepy."

Created by Noel Cruz, an artist from the Philippines, the doll recently sold for £2,000 on Ebay.

Inspired by the actress's "enigmatic beauty," Cruz started with an ordinary doll, removed the factory paint, and repainted it with acrylics.

There's no doubt that the doll looks exactly like Angelina, but he forgot one little thing...the tattoos! He is offering to paint them on for £10 to £20 though, depending on the complexity of the design.

I wonder if Angelina will be making a special order for a Brad doll!

Could this be the reason why she's super skinny?

Spotted: 90210 star, Shenae Grimes smoking, and carrying a shopping bag with six packs of cigarettes.

Lately, the Canadian actress has been receiving criticism from the press for her diva-like behaviour and skinny frame.

Perezhilton reported last week that the 18-year-old was so proud of her starring role on 90210 that she was "tormenting" the cast, crew, and extras and told them, "This is my show - everyone else is riding my coattails."

The cover of Us Weekly displayed Grimes and skinny co-star Jessica Stroup with the headline "Too Skinny for TV." The magazine reported that the two stars have never been seen eating and that their other co-stars were planning an intervention.

She seems like someone who loves any kind of attention, but she needs to learn negative attention will only get you so far. And stop smoking Shenae, it's just going to make you look more disgusting.

Milan Fashion Week: Spring '09 - Gianfranco Ferré

My absolute favourite collection from Milan so far is by Gianfranco Ferré. Although the clothing may not be exactly practical, his use of architectural shapes and structures is genius. Belted frocks, extravagant pockets and billowy sleeves were staples, and the soft fabrics counteracted the severe geometric shapes. The collection was so brilliant, it was reminiscent of Chanel's Fall 2008 Couture. Pretty good for a Ready to Wear collection.
