Creative Captioning: Iman Dances Stands with Wolves

Halloween seems to have come early in New York where the fashion world elite gathered Thursday evening for Fashion Night Out. Below, Mrs. David Bowie -- aka super model doyenne Iman -- seems to have been thrown to the wolves. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a gut-busting caption to accompany the picture. I don't want to pressure anyone, but hilarity better ensue. And ASAP. (Getty Images) The best of the bunch will be elevated to a place of prominence in this here blahg....

George Clooney, Boldly Going Where He's Gone Before?

Clooney and new love Elisabetta Canalis Tuesday in Venice. (Getty Images) George Clooney, we've got your number. This morning the net is awash in pix of you and your new girl, Elisabetta Canalis, stepping out at the Venice film festival. Your willingness to escort her on to a red carpet is, of course, taken as tacit admission that this is a "real" relationship and not yet another Como summer fling. But, George, the whole Venice thing is a little stale. It was only two years ago that you led a different woman -- 28-year-old cocktail waitress/reality show contestant Sarah Larson -- on to the same exact carpet to the same exact effect. Clooney and Sarah Larson at the 2008 Academy Awards. (AP) I'm not saying that you've got some kind of ritualistic courting thing going on or even that you could mayhaps jinx your blossoming relationship with Canalis. But...

Wear Faux Fur While Reading About Faux-lebrities

(Hachette Book Group) What's the fall forecast for celebrity shenanigans? Any prognostications as we go forward? -- Submitted to Thursday's Celebritology Live chat I don't know about prognostications, but the three items below are guaranteed celeb happenings. Mark your calendars: The Speidi Book: Heidi Montag and husband Spencer Pratt may be way past their 15-minutes of fame limit, but that hasn't stopped the Hachette Book Group from publishing the couple's "How to Be Famous: Our Guide to Looking the Part, Playing the Press and Becoming a Tabloid Fixture." Due on shelves Nov. 16, the picture-filled paperback is chock full of useful advice -- like Pratt's guide to being a "villain" -- on how to be an utterly vapid waste of space. Stay tuned, I'll surely have a bit more fun with this one closer to November. The Rachel Zoe-ization of America: The diminutive stylist's line of faux fur coats...
