They were talking about SJP's friggin' hat on 'Morning Joe' today and I thought, 'This is going to be in the Morning Mix!'

How awesome is Dennis Farina?

I can only imagine the things William Shatner has either said or heard during liaisons, e.g., "Warp Speed, Mr. Sulu" or "Beam Me Up, Scotty" on the one hand, and "He's dead, Jim" or "Illogical" on the other. And you know, I'd realllly rather be imaginging other things right now.

Is Joaquin going to call his album "Chinese Democracy II"?

If they keep taking away his gun, how will Dennis Farina EVER Get Shorty?

What was the point of releasing that Bill O'Reilly video? Is there anyone left who knows who he is that *doesn't* know he's an ass?

9021Oh, no, Donna's back. Can Silver be far behind?

I hope that Shatner's next album includes his version of "Love To Love You Baby," so we could all know what it's like to be in bed with Captain Kirk.

td, based on The Shat's account of his first day in NYC, he'd never say "Beam Me Up, Scotty."

Not that there's enough Romulan Ale in the galaxy to persuade the Chief Engineer to reverse his transporter buffer in *that* way, anyhow.

No one is going to care about this. But I just want to say it's a damn shame about Fall Out Boy. That lead singer has a hell of a voice but it's become all about that metrosexual loser bassist Pete Effing Wentz and his giant lips and hair and it really sucks.

I thought the acorn on the hat was bad. Low and behold there are butterflies as well. Oy.

Jailhouse officials should also be on the look out of the old file in the cake from Remy's fiance.

Regarding "say what" I need the context. Is the woman saying it in an excited manner or is it more along the lines of, I shaved my legs for this crap? I can't access NY Post.

Oh, SJP, I want to like you....I really do. You always seem so down-to-earth and normal in interviews, but then you go and wear a hat like that and it's like you're f'ing with us.

I really liked SJP's dress, and she wore it so well. The hat, not so much, but it's very Carrie Bradshaw and since she's promoting the movie with that character, she is forgiven.

Now for the catty part...my legs look much, much better than Kim Cattrall's. And that makes me very very happy.

Interesting tattoo on Brad Pitt. It looks like some weird space language.

Posted by: Bored @ work | May 13, 2008 9:54 AM | Report abuse

I saw some of the SJP pics yesterday.

The first pic I saw was a group shot where they all had their arms around each other, and it looked like Kim Cattrall had gotten a bouquet and was forced to hold it upright above SJP's head for the pose. I thought "oh, I'm sure SJP will just *LOVE* the postmodern version of putting 'bunny ears' behind someone's head in a photo.

The second photo, SJP was by herself and had her hand up to wave to the crowd. From the angle, the flowers now looked like a monstrous wrist corsage because her hand obscured most of the hat. I thought - "wow, that just can't be comfortable."

Then I saw the final shot of that thing on her head and just sighed. Too bad - it was a very pretty and flattering dress and she looked so cheerful and happy and smiley. She could have just had fabulous hair and looked fabulous, but nooooo.

Oh, and for the questions about how it's staying on her head? It's called hat-pins. And considering the way it's on her forehead, I'd say some spirit gum. It actually looks like a pretty well-balanced piece of millinery, so once stabilized it should have been okay. Though, yeah, I hope she took it off in the theater or sat in the back row.

"Madonna's demands annoy U.K. music festival organizers" Uh, yeah. Everything about Madonna annoys, well, everyone. She also needs to get over herself.

Only an American would object to Sarah Jessica's hat. It was made by an Englishman and is, therefore, superior to American fashion. Pass the tea.

WI, Ms. Parker would be grateful if you didn't use the word "Whoa" in comments about her. She's a little sensitive about that, as she is about any words with (unintended, to be sure) equine connotations.

Joaquin Phoenix has to be a perfectionist if he wants his record to meet the high standards of other celebrity vanity bands like Keanu's Dogstar, Russell Crowe's Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts, and the masterpiece of the genre: Bruce Willis' Return of Bruno.

The fascination with fascinator hats escapes me. I always say "What is that thing she is wearing?" It always looks to me that the facehuggers in Aliens missed. Some of them are quite lovely, just do not work as hats. Yes, I am talking to you Brits and your Royal Family. I never want to see another fascinator on Autmn Kelly (soon to be Mrs. Peter Phillips), Princess Beatrice or Princess Eugenie. Thank you.

Please, please, please, let the Romo/B*easts rumors be true.

The Ashlee Simpson rumor is not the most interesting thing about Ashlee lately. Apparently over the weekend, she called Britney Spears "trashy." Pot meet kettle.

Well, I guess we have another member of the Icky Veiny Arms Club. SJP.

The hat is SO Carrie Bradshaw.

I agree with Lisa1. The long face is definitely balanced with short hair. My fave was her adorable blond curly bob -- season 5 of SATC I think.

Unfortunately, now it's back to the stringy, uncombed mess she sported in season 6 of SATC. Doesn't she have stylists? Sarah, get thee to a colorist and get a brush and some conditioner pronto!

By the way - I actually love cool hats. A legacy from my late grandmother who had dozens of them.

I even loved Camilla Parker Bowles' hats at her wedding/dedication ceremony to Prince Charles. They were a touch outré but still classy and cool and - most importantly - they fit/matched the the outfits she was wearing at the time.

As for this one? I don't dislike the colors or even the flowers of this hat (though the acorn is a little odd - the hat shape should be simple with the extravagant plumage). It's just the *wrong* hat for the dress and the occasion. Just because the Brits wear hats at some of their formal occasions does not mean you slap on any old thing.

Posted by: Chasmosaur | May 13, 2008 2:13 PM | Report abuse

Take the growing bits off, and the acorn cap part is rather beautiful. I'd wear it! And I'm sure she must have a pound of hat pins tucked up under there, but with her head tilted just so in that pic the whole piece really looks gravity defying.

Didn't mind SJP's hat, but her hair was a mess. Looked like she'd just rolled out of bed and didn't have time to run a comb through it. I liked the dress and color, but thought the hemline could have been a tad longer for her age and the occasion. The shoes were nice, but not with that dress. I dunno--it was as if a lot of the pieces were OK, but just didn't mesh into the right finished product.

Other than the color, Catrall's dress was not good for her. The cut and length were just bad. The worst of the four by far.

Davis usually looks nice, and this occasion was no exception. Very stylish and poised looking--like her character.

Nixon was the real surpise. Fabulous, sophisticated dress. And her hair and complexion were gorgeous.

Oh, and re SJP's arms--they do kind of look like she stole them from Madonna, don't they? Is it just because she's so thin or, like Madonna, a byproduct of excessive workouts?
