Although Sarah Jessica Parker was assured the dress she wore to the Sex and the City NYC premiere had not been worn publicly by anyone else, that turned out to not be true at all.
The Nina Ricci gown designed by Olivier Theyskens had been worn by socialite Lauren Santo Domingo at the Met ball less than a month earlier, and Lindsay Lohan wore it for a Harper’s Bazaar shoot.
â€œIn the big picture, this is not important, but there is a relationship between the entertainment industry and fashion,â€ Parker said on Thursday evening, adding. â€œWeâ€™ve watched sales dwindle and weâ€™ve watched people be less inclined to spend money on clothes.â€ To Parker, these are reasons for companies to take particular care with their relationships. â€œLook, my affection for the dress hasnâ€™t changed,â€ she said, â€œbut what they did was so short-sighted. Itâ€™s just unethical and disappointing that they would allow the dress to be worn again.â€

Actress Tatum O’Neal, age 44, was busted on Sunday on the Lower East Side, trying to buy crack and cocaine.
“When the police approached, she asked them, ‘You know who I am, right?’ ” one source said.
“Then she said, ‘I’m researching a part – I’m doing this for a part as a junkie.’ ”
The source said detectives found a pipe on O’Neal, daughter of actor Ryan O’Neal. The pipe and screen were clean.
“Then she said she’d been clean for two years, and that she’d just came out today,” the source said.
“Can’t we just forget about this?” sources said she begged the detectives.
Uh, Tatum? Researching a role as a junkie? Hasn’t, like, your entire life been that research?
Tatum was booked on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and is expected to spend the night in jail.
Aren’t you getting a little old for this shit, Taters?

Is this just what happens to anyone who stands next to Sarah Jessica Parker, or has Katie Holmes put on a good deal of weight in the past few months?
I mean, don’t get me wrong, she looks healthy, but, still. She used to be a stick, and now she actually looks like a woman.
This pic was taken backstage at the MTV Movie Awards. There are 8000 more pics from this event after the jump.

Sex and the City brought in a whopping $55.7M this weekend, nearly twice what analysts had predicted.
Indiana Jones slipped to #2, bringing in only $46M in its second weekend.
The film put up numbers never before seen for a movie aimed mainly at women, who do not tend to rush out in huge numbers for opening weekends the way males do. In fact, it had the best debut ever for an R-rated comedy.
