National Photo GroupComedic actor Matt LeBlanc will be playing himself on a new Showtime series called "Episodes." It looks like a hilarious satire in the vein of "Curb Your Enthusiasm"--in one scene LeBlanc must audition to play himself on a new TV series, against a room full of actors who are trying to perfect LeBlanc's famous line from "Friends," "How you doin'?" So funny! But what has really caught people off guard (us included): Matt LeBlanc is now a silver fox.
One blogger says this makes him feel really old. But let's not forget that LeBlanc is 42. Many 42-year-old men have some grey hair, if not a head full of it, by that age unless they dye it. Perhaps we're not used to seeing a celebrity with his natural hair color. Or maybe the fact that we still watch LeBlanc's character, Joey Tribbiani, on 16-year-old "Friends" repeats makes us associate the actor with still being in his 20s.
With Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston still looking so young and fantastic in the public eye, does a little grey

Splash News/WWDSome of you may remember my post from last fall about Stella McCartney's collection for Gap Kids and Baby Gap. The designer made a more affordable (yet still pretty expensive) line for kids that was perhaps not the most practical for kids, but unquestionably adorable. Which is why we weren't totally surprised to see Carla Bruni, the first lady of France, wearing the military coat while singing Beatles ballad, "And I Love Her," on stage. (Stella is Paul McCartney's daughter, in case you didn't make the connection.) The jacket is the most expensive item in McCartney's Gap Kids collection, retailing for $128, and must run fairly large--when was the last time you fit into a kids XL?Read More »from Who wore it best: Carla Bruni or Madonnaâ€™s four-year-old daughter, Mercy
Meanwhile, Madonna made sure to scoop up the same military coat for her four-year-old daughter, Mercy, who debuted the look this weekend en route to the Kabbalah center. While Mercy's outfit is probably more sophisticated than anything we've ever worn, she is the Material Girl's daughter after all. We wouldn't

Getty ImagesWhile the #1 most important thing is being happy in your own skin, we also like to give props to famous ladies with legs, curves, and hair we'd kill for! You know, the stars we'd most want to look like if we could afford to enlist an army of private chefs, nutritionists, personal trainers, and world renowned colorists to help us. Oh, and maybe if we could alter our DNA just a smidge.Read More »from The celebs with the best body/butt/boobs/legs/eyes/hair
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment poll of 2,000 men and women on which celebs have the best assets. Not surprisingly, women and men have differing opinions on ideal beauty. While 24% of females polled thought Beyoncé had the hottest body, one in five men named Megan Fox. Incidentally, Fox was also the most popular choice for who the guys would most want to sleep with if their parter gave them a celebrity pass. Moving on...
Move over J.Lo and Kim Kardashian--Beyoncé was also picked by both sexes to have the best butt, gaining 34 percent of the vote. Hey, she did coin the term "bootylicious" after
Thanks to Chanel, clogs are everywhere we turn, and just this morning celeb stylist Rachel Zoe was preaching about the shoes in her newsletter. She writes: "When Karl Lagerfeld sent a slew of less-than-conventional clogs down Chanel's spring runway, many people questioned his genius at first, but th
Getty ImagesThis morning the internet is abuzz with the latest celebrity scandal: Jane Fonda admits to having plastic surgery after claiming she wouldn't have any more. This is big news, because whenever a big star has cosmetic surgery, the media has a field day. People speculate about what was done, magazines enlist experts to weigh in on which procedures the believe were performed, and reporters even flat out ask the celebs to own up. But does any of it really matter?Read More »from Celeb surgery: do we want or need to know?
Sure, gossiping about who has done what to their faces and bodies makes for a juicy topic of discussion. In today's star-driven culture, haven't we all spent a moment speculating about whether a celebrity has gotten a new nose, a boob job, or a little botox? And the more popular or famous a celebrity is, the more we concern ourselves with their appearance. If comedienne Kathy Griffin gets a ton of plastic surgery, no one really cares or notices. But if Angelina Jolie has a procedure done DROP EVERYTHING! Last week tabloids were
Getty ImagesOver the past few years, Coco Rocha has become one of the biggest working models out of a new batch of young talent in the industry. This past week she walked in fashion shows for famous designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Zac Posen, but the New York Times and the New York Daily News reported that, "Coco Rocha is too fat for the runway." Now Rocha has taken to her blog, Oh So Coco, to set the record straight.Read More »from Coco Rocha challenges the modeling industry
Rocha describes herself as, "a 21 year old model, 6 inches taller and 10 sizes smaller than the average American woman." What is confusing about this, is that as stated in recent press about Rocha, she is sometimes considered too big for the modeling industry. Rocha says that while she has been privileged to work with editors, stylists, photographers, and agents who treat her with respect, not all of her peers have been so lucky. "Surely, we all see how morally wrong it is for an adult to convince an already thin 15 year old that she is actually too fat," writes Rocha.

This morning I found myself among around two-dozen lucky female editors who were given the opportunity to meet Sarah Jessica Parker. As a woman who has seen every episode of "Sex and the City" practically to the point of memorization, I am what you might call a really big fan. And while I once embarrassed myself by approaching Parker in a grocery store many years ago, I was delighted to meet her again under far sweeter circumstances. "Sweetie Pie" restaurant, to be exact: an adorable, girly restaurant in Manhattan's West Village, not far from where Parker herself resides.Read More »from Sarah Jessica Parker's new fragrance: "A party in a bottle"
As we sat down to brunch, Parker's new scent, SJP NYC, was set up on every table for editors to try. The perfume was incredibly fruity and juicy--something you'd look forward to spraying on once the temperatures rise. "What I really wanted to do was capture an image, a snapshot of Carrie Bradshaw," says Parker. "Sort of a freeze frame of her walking down a New York City street in the late spring, in a floral pink
As Fall 2010 Fashion Week comes to a close here in New York, we're left to wonder, what does it all mean? Luckily for us, designers have blaringly hit us over the head with some exciting, gorgeous, and wearable trends we can't wait to step into come September. Now if only we didn't have to wait so long.
New York Fashion Week is nearly over, but the presentations and events have still been action packed. Check out everything you need to know about the past day in Bryant Park.

Getty ImagesOver the past decade we've seen countless stars use their celebrity to create and launch clothing lines.

So why does Madonna suddenly feel the need to jump into the already over-crowded sea of celeb designers with a collection for Macy's?Read More »from Madonna may be the last celeb on Earth to launch a clothing line
Sure, Madonna is a style icon and long-time trendsetter, and she's already worked on a collaboration with H&M back in 2007, but there are a few logistics to a Madonna collection we can't quite wrap our minds around. For starters, we're not sure who her target shopper is.
