Fashion Week Frenzy: Elise Overland’s Warrior Princesses


overland.jpgWelcome back to our coverage of New York’s Fall Fashion Week where we’re recapping all the craziness in Manhattan surrounding the season’s style shows. Mary Alice Stephenson, America’s Most Smartest Model host and Harper’s Bazaar contributing fashion editor, gives us the lowdown on the hottest designers. In today’s installment, we meet Elise Overland, one of the winners of the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award, an honor given out to emerging designers. Overland’s known for her rocker-ish taste — she’s made clothes for stars like the Smashing Pumpkins — but her show this time was a tad more sophisticated than it was stage-ready. It had plenty of attitude, though, as did its designer, whose personal style we’ve always thought of as being very Red Sonja meets Clan of the Cave Bear. Overland is striking, and so are her clothes. She attracted some well-known types to celebrate with her, including model/musician Irina Lazareanu, artist Hope Atherton and first daughter Barbara Bush. More after the jump.

* “Should’ve known better when you came around/ That you were gonna make me cry.”

* “Sweet reunion Jamaica and Spain/ We’re like how we were again/ I’m in the tub, you on the seat/ Lick your lips as I soak my feet.”

* “Haters, start your engines, I hear ‘em gearin’ up/ People talk so much sh*t about me at barbershops/ They forget to get their haircut.”

* “So since I’m not your everything/ How about I’ll be nothing, nothing at all to you/ Baby I won’t shed a tear for you, I won’t lose a wink of sleep.”

* “I know you’ve got your reasons/ Hey let’s call it even/ Turn out all the lights/ And go to bed.”

* “Old teenage hopes/ Are alive at your door/ Left you with nothing/ But they want some more.”

* “There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to have just one more chance/ To look into our eyes and see you looking back.”

* “I can’t give up your love without dying baby/ I’ll wait until the sea is dry baby/ How do we know what love is/ Until it is free?”

* “How’s your life? It’s been a while/ God it’s good to see you smile/ I see you reachin’ for your keys/ Lookin’ for a reason not to leave.”

* “Stood on the corner for a while/ To wait for the wind to blow down on me/ Hoping it takes with it my old ways/ And brings some brand new luck upon me.”

Brit & Jamie-Lynn Loathe Their Rents


britneyjamie.jpgJamie-Lynn Spears – Britney’s little sister with a big belly – is allegedly trying to run away from her overbearing Mom. May we suggest she does it this week? We have a feeling Mama Spears is kinda distracted right now at the mental hospital, so pack that Louis Vuitton suitcase up and run, girl! She has apparently forbidden Jamie-Lynn from seeing her baby-daddy, so the Nickelodeon starlet is hightailing it to her dad’s house in Los Angeles. She also, supposedly, just wants to party like her big sis, according to a source who revealed, “Jamie Lynn knows Britney smoked and drank during her pregnancy — and because Britney’s boys turned out fine, Jamie Lynn thinks her baby will be fine too.”

Yup, they’re just a normal pair of sisters! Meanwhile, Britney is stuck in some padded room at the hospital hating on her pops, who is now legally in charge of her medical care and her money. She sent her lawyers to court yesterday to get him removed from as her conservator (the fancy title he’s been given), but the court ruled in his favor. Her lawyer elaborated: “There has been an estrangement for quite some time. With him as conservator, that is causing her more agitation and more distress.”

As if her pink wig wasn’t distressful enough – that thing really itches, ya’ll!

Football Is Like, Totally Sexy



Dearest Eli,

Congrats to you and the guys about the big win! God, I’m really not up on how the game is played, but I had a great time at the Super Bowl party I went to. It was hot. I was so impressed with the way you made that winning drive into the tight little end zone. Loves it! You grabbed the pigskin, clasped it tightly in your big hands, and just kept on pushing it forward over and over again. It seemed like the whole field was one big bed and you were in charge. Is it hard to keep that kind of drive going for a long time? Are you sweaty by the time you’re done? Are you doing anything this weekend? We should connect so you can teach me some of the rules. I know I’ve got what it takes to be the ball carrier, and would love to learn what a tight end can do. Some guys have even said that I’m a really good open receiver! And hey – what’s this I hear about a three-point stance? Text me, hon.

Yours, Paris

PS: Seriously, you better call. Don’t make me ring up Tom Brady!

Paris Hilton Not a Hottie Last Night



Someone needs to tell Paris that she’s at the premiere of her lame movie The Hottie and the Nottie, and not winning the Nobel Prize for most beautiful princess in the world. Aside from the fact that she baked herself to a nice golden crisp that will guarantee a serious wrinkle crisis in a couple of months, her over-the-top look – combining a pink gown with a diamond overload – only further proves how seriously she takes herself. She may never get invited to the Oscars, but at least she can play pretend at her movie premiere.

Meanwhile, her co-star Christine Lakin, who plays a acne-covered balding freak with rotten teeth in the flcik, actually looks totally bangin’. The nottie has become the hottie, and the hottie has become, well, more of a mess.

Check out more pics from the premiere:

Kardashian Kids Punk Brandy’s Mom



Kim Kardashian is in the news again today, and it’s not because of her giant ass – but because she might be a giant ass. Singer Brandy‘s mother Sonja Norwood has sued Kim, after she allegedly racked up over $120,000 of charges on Norwood’s AMEX. Apparently Kim was Brandy’s stylist in 2004 (wait, what? She’s a stylist?) and Norwood gave her the credit card to make one purchase for her daughter. But Kim supposedly passed on the number to her sisters, and the trio used it for $62,793.83 worth of purchases in 2006 and $57,841.82 in 2007. For those of you without calculators, that puts the final tally at $120,635.82. The Kardashian sisters even apparently spent thousands at their own (horribly named) boutiques, Dash and Smooch.

Kim also once dated Brandy’s brother Ray-J – her partner in that sex tape that she loves to hate on – which may have also rubbed Mama Norwood the wrong way. And why wouldn’t she just cancel the card after she noticed over $60,000 worth of charges on the thing?! Honestly, we’re glad that she didn’t, because we can’t wait to see this play out in front of a judge. How is Kim going to afford the sexy outfits she’ll need for court without that Norwood cash flow?

DVD Debut: Beatles Good, Blondes Bad


New DVDs are released every Tuesday, which leads us to the eternal question: What should you buy? Our critic Charles Bottomley weighs in on every week’s must-haves and please-forgets.


Across the Universe
The last time someone tried to make a Beatles musical, we ended up with Steve Martin singing “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” in 1978′s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. This retro refit is more successful, with Liverpudlian scally Jim Sturgess turning on, tuning in, and dropping out Marilyn Manson moll Evan Rachel Wood through the usual 1960s kaleidoscope. The editor’s scissors, however, should have been applied to Bono coo-coo-coo-choobing his way through “I Am the Walrus.”

Commentary from director Julie Taymor and her composer hubbie Elliot Goldenthal, alternative versions of Eddie Izzard singing “For the Benefit of Mr. Kite.”

Rating: Buy!
