Hey Starlets, Give This Trend the Boot

Sandra Bullock. (Getty Images) A recent runway trend starting to crop up on red carpets is the pairing of clunky ankle boots with otherwise typically shape-hugging knock 'em dead dresses. Ill-advised for anyone not about to appear in a Pussycat Dolls stage show. Not even perky Sandra Bullock -- at Wednesday's premiere of her new movie "All About Steve" -- can pull off this look. It doesn't help that Sandy's Lanvin dress isn't so knock 'em dead and appears to be two sizes too big and constructed from funeral parlor drapes. But even that might be forgivable were in not for the big black -- and in Sandy's case scuffed -- boots. But lest you think I'm using the boots as an excuse to pick on Bullock, here are two young starlets who also followed Sandy's footsteps into booted ickiness: Left: Scout Taylor-Compton at the premiere of 'Halloween 2.'...

What Would Gwyneth Do? I DON'T KNOW!

AWOL GOOP guru Gwyneth Paltrow. (AP) So here we are in the last lingering days of summer and I've got several problems: too many tomatoes, a wardrobe not ready for a fall transition, I'm flummoxed as to what type of toilet bowl cleaner to buy to avoid speeding the planet on its way to utter environmental collapse and, most frightening of all, my upper arms are getting flabby. How can things have gotten so messed up so quickly? It seems like it was merely a month ago that I was happily tossing summer salads and contemplating the joys of a high colonic. It was, in fact, Aug. 5 -- the last time Gwyneth Paltrow posted any instructions to us, the faithful subscribers of her weekly newsletter, GOOP. The only celebrity guidance I've had is from that walking skeleton Rachel Zoe who yesterday did her best to convince me that...

Celebrity Museums: Late Summer Road Trip?

Burt Reynolds in 1977's 'Smokey and the Bandit.' (Universal City Studios) Even before Michael Jackson's sudden death in June there had been talk of turning his one-time California estate, Neverland, into a museum where fans would be able to gather to pay tribute to the erstwhile King of Pop. But no need to sit home clicking online fan pages when several perfectly lovely celeb museums are already up, running and just waiting for you to arrive. I've passed on the obvious (Graceland, Madame Toussaud's) to list some more obscure destinations. This selection is by no means exhaustive, so add any additional suggested stops to the comments section below. Burt Reynolds & Friends Museum Jupiter, Fla. Make haste to this shrine to Florida native Reynolds, who you may remember as the open-shirted Bandit from "Smokey and the Bandit" or the skeevy old porn producer from "Boogie Nights" or as Loni...
