Celebs Come Out for the Costume Institute

jessica_costume.jpg

I have no idea what this event was, but it may as well have been the Oscars for how many stars showed up. WireImage calls it “Poiret: King of Fashion” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Everyone was there, including Jessica Simpson and the breasts she seems to have just recently discovered. Celebs pictured here include Jennifers Garner, Connolly, Lopez and Hudson, Ellen Pompeo, Donald and Melania Trump, Christina Ricci, Chloe Sevigny, Cameron Diaz, Gisele Bundchen, Anna Wintour, America Ferrara, Alicia Keys, Kate Bosworth, MK Olsen, Mischa Barton, Naomi Watts (quite preggers) and a billion others.

Paris Hilton Files to Appeal

Hilton’s lawyers are filing to appeal the sentencing Paris received on Friday, essentially claiming the the trial judge did not have a right to give Paris the 45 days of jail time.

View the appeal here.

I don’t think this means she will necessary be granted an appeal, just that she’s trying to get one …

Meanwhile, Gawker’s selling “Don’t Free Paris” shirts. This would be an acceptable “I love you, Beet” gift if anyone wants to get me something just because.

Ty Pennington Sobers Up …

God, it must have sucked to wake up as Ty Pennington today. Like, it’s one thing if you’re Paris Hilton and you score a DUI — everyone has their fun with it, but you’re famous for being a party girl anyway, so what the hell, at least it keeps you in the papers. But when you’re Ty Fucking Pennington, America’s Golden Boy and host of what is arguably the most family-friendly, red-state-courting, Jesus-loving show in evening network television, this fucking sucks. It’s like Barney got caught shooting up.

Anyway, Ty-Ty shook off the hangover for long enough to get this statement out well in time for the east-coast evening news:

I made an error in judgment. We all make mistakes, however this is about accountability. Under no circumstances should anyone consume alcohol while driving. I could have jeopardized the lives of others and I am grateful there was no accident or harm done to anyone. This was my wake-up call. I also want to apologize to my fans, ABC Television and my design team for my lapse in judgment and the embarrassment I have caused.

Hey, Ty, just a little tip: if they suspend your license and put you on probation, don’t drive anymore. Just trust me on this one.

Brit Did a Vegas Show Yesterday

I guess there were actually four mini-shows on Brit’s “comeback” agenda. You would have heard about this last one sooner, except Paris is going to jail and Lindsay got caught on tape doing cocaine, and all of a sudden no one cares that Britney’s bouncing around on stage for a few minutes.

Brit did another 5-song, 14-minute set at the House of Blues in Las Vegas on Sunday. She wore the same skimpy fuschia top we’ve consistently seen her in, and sang “Hit Me Baby,” “I’m A Slave,” “Breathe on Me,” “Do Something” and “Toxic.”

She was lipsynching, per usual.

“It was just to create a buzz and it worked,” said one of Britney’s dancers.
