Peep what Padma Lakshmi wore to the 2009 White House Correspondents Dinner. Yes, you heard me right. Padma didn’t wear this transparent little number on a late-night booty call to her man’s house. She wore this to party with the President!
I’m sorry, but if I were Michelle, lil miss Top Chef would have seen the bottom of my stiletto as Secret Service and I showed her the door.
What was she thinking wearing this inappropriate dress to such a swank shindig? And before you try sticking up for the usually polished Padma, I want to say that I don’t buy the “I had no idea my dress was this sheer” defense. Even Lady Gaga or Aubrey O’Day would have had enough sense to put on something opaque before meeting Obama.
You know what I think? I think Allure Magazine started somethin’ with their May 2009 spread of stripped-down celebs. Perhaps it made Padma a little too comfortable in her own skin?
In the interview that accompanies the photo below, Allure asked Padma if she’s confident about her body. I believe Saturday’s wardrobe malfunction answers that question, but anyway…Padma replied, “Yes; I like the way I look. I think I look better now than I did in my 20s, because I’m more confident about my body – and I don’t want to look like anyone but myself.”
Did you know that Leighton Meester was a blonde before auditioning for Gossip Girl? She dyed her hair before scoring the career-launching role of Blair Waldorf, Queen Bee of NYC’s Upper East Side. “That’s a big deal but I’m glad I did”, Leighton once said.
But, from the looks of these recent pics, Leighton has gone back to her roots.
So how do we like our beloved Blair as a blonde?

Who’s afraid of the big, bold lip? Surely not Alexis Bledel. Just look at how she fabulously flaunts an orange-red kisser.
Let this be a lesson to all of you who fear the saucier shades on the color spectrum. Minimal eye makeup and a bright lip color make her unearthly baby blues pop. Alexis sported a similar look at the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 premiere last year, when she opted for a vibrant, blue-pink lipstick.
Today, Kim Kardashian unveiled a new hair color via Twitter. Though Kim referred to her new shade as “blonde,” it’s obvious from the Twitpics that her hair is actually a caramel-y light brown.
I love me some Kim, but I can’t get behind this hair. Her dark mane was so glossy and lush. If genetics had blessed me with that hair, I’d never do a damn thing to it. I’d just shake what my momma gave me.
What do you think about Kim’s new do?
On a recent trip to Mexico, Kim Kardashian accidentally fell asleep in the sun…and awoke to what appears to be a pretty serious case of sunburn.
Today on her blog, Kim dishes about the miracle product that healed her hide:
This face cream saved my life! It’s called Anti-Oxidant Skin Preserver and it’s by Kiehl’s. It is the only thing that calmed down my sunburn and healed my skin!
I am so thankful for this product. It’s very heavy and greasy but that’s exactly what dry skin needs. It’s thick like Vaseline, but its so nourishing for the skin. Having this sunburn was the biggest wake up call for me. I realized how damaging sun is and how important it is to take care of your skin. I’m going to use this moisturizer every night! I’m also on the search for the perfect facial sunblock, so I will keep u posted!

Yesterday, Jessica Alba debuted honey-colored locks. Are you feeling the new color? I’m on the fence…mainly because I’m too distracted by the purple shades, which remind me of a pair my pediatric dentist would put on me before my teeth cleaning and bubblegum flouride treatment.
