Rising Trend: 'Heidi' braids

Earlier this year, People magazine rated Sienna Miller's braided 'do, better known as the 'Heidi Plait', for the Golden Globes as one of the worst hairstyles of the evening. However, according to various sources, her look is popping up on celebrities such as MK Olsen, Penelope Cruz and Emilie de Ravin and runway shows for Bottega Veneta (right), Behnaz Sarafpour and Givenchy (center).

Jail time for Ms. Richie

Nicole Richie is going to JAIL!

Ok, so it's only four days, but she is still going and being fined for $2,048 after pleading guilty Friday afternoon. Her sentence is the result of driving under the influence of marijuana and pain medication Vicodin causing her to drive in the opposite direction on a Burbank freeway December 11, 2006. The pregnant socialite was also ordered to enter a drug and alcohol program which must be completed by February 20, 2008, her return date to court and must serve her sentence by September 28, 2007.

Celebrity mug shots

Following the blog about Lindsay's arrest, I thought I'd share other memorable celebrity mugshots with you:

The saga continues

More trouble for Ms. Lohan. Two weeks out of rehab, and having recently turned herself into Beverly Hills Police, she was arrested early Tuesday at around 1:30 am with a blood alcohol level between .12 and .13 percent (wasn't her ankle bracelet supposed to 'detect' that earlier?) Officials arrested her for suspicion of drunken driving, transporting narcotics, driving with a suspended license and alleged cocaine possession (so the rumors are true). Like most celebrities, Lohan was released on $25,000 bail.
<--Lohan's mug shot from July 24, 2007.

Sidenote: People can talk as much trash about her as they want...but I, in a weird way, feel bad for her. I don't think she should be let free of her crimes, but I feel bad that she doesn't realize how fortunate she is to have the wealth and success she has, to have fans who look up to her (and all she does is set a bad example) and for having parents who can't help her lost soul. I hope one day I can resume being a fan when she straightens out her head.

Goodbye Bob Barker...Hello Drew Carey ??

Television's most beloved game show host, Bob Barker, retired earlier this year in June after more than 35 years on The Price Is Right and 50 years in show biz. After announcing his retirement in October 2006, buzz began circulating who would be his replacement for the popular game show. The 6, 586th and last episode of Price was taped on June 6th and aired on June 15, 2007. Since, Barker's host position has been handed down to - no, not Rosie O'Donnell (thank heavens) - funny man Drew Carey! Carey confirmed his position on a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman. I personally don't think it's a bad choice. While he's not the same as Barker, Carey has experience with audiences as a comic foremost, with Whose Line Is It Anyway, The Drew Carey Show and as the host of a new prime-time CBS game show, The Power of 10. Carey says he recognizes the responsibility in taking up the offer and hopes to maintain the show as what it is known for - the longest running game show on television.

LaLohan turns herself in

As reported by The Insider, Lindsay Lohan, who checked out of rehab last week, turned herself in to the Beverly Hills Police Department Thursday for driving under the influence and committing a hit and run during the Memorial Day weekend earlier this year. Even now as she is legally able to drink, she is voluntarily sporting an alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet. Her court date is currently set for August 24. Lindsay's new movie I Know Who Killed Me will debut Friday July 27.

"Hairspray" - Must See Movie

"Hairspray" debuted in movie theaters nationwide yesterday. Rarely do I see movies on release dates since I loathe cinemas being packed to the hilt with noisy crowds of people. But I had nothing better to do on a Friday night, so I tagged along with my parents to a 10 o'clock showing. From the first song, to the very last, I never stopped laughing. The audience loved it (except for my parents who needed constant nudging on my part to stay awake...10 is late for them ya know) and at least every 10-20 minutes, everyone was genuinely laughing out loud.
"Hairspray," based on John Waters' Broadway production and a remake of the 1998 movie musical, is already garnering great reviews from critics. They claim that director Adam Shankman retains Waters' theme of feeling like an outcast and overcoming that feeling. The film's story of embracement and tolerance provides "a beautiful message wrapped in crazy paper" Shankman says. Not only does it stick to the original, intended theme, it lures in the audience and makes every second count.
Director: Adam Shankman
Cast includes: Nikki Blonsky, John Travolta, Amanda Bynes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, Queen Latifah and Zac Efron.

Now Available: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

It's here y'all. The long-awaited final book of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is in stores NOW as of 12:01 July 21. An estimated 72.1 million copies were bought in the first 24 hours worldwide. My neighbor invited me to the midnight release party at our local bookstore but I bailed. I went last year but I have a feeling this year might have been a bit more exciting. I admit I never even finished the first book (oops) but I do enjoy the movies and the plot/imagination behind it all. Though, I ruined it for myself...I read a few spoilers, but you needn't worry.I will not spill any beans to devoted fans =)
