British whosis Katie Price and latin lover Leandro Penna attention-shifting on the red carpet at the London premiere of Total Recall. Now forgive me, Brits, but I haven’t really followed Katie since her Jordan days. The last thing I remember was that she deflowered the only boy I’ll ever love, Gareth Gates, which was SO UNFORGIVABLE that I cancelled my subscription to Heat and vowed never to mention her again. But that was a bajillion years ago and I’ve mellowed somewhat. I think we all have. So tell me: Do we still hate her? She looks like she’s cleaned up her act a bit. And she turned out to be a good mum, didn’t she? How do the British feel about Katie nowadays? And is Leandro kind of hot or is it a trick of the camera? (Photo: Pacific Coast News)

Those irrepressible teen socialites Peter Brant II (18) and his brother Harry (15) were given the New York Times Style treatment in an article entitled “The New Princes of the City.” Writer William Van Meter gushes: “[Harry and his brother] are the well-spoken product of cross-pollination of the Übermenschen. Their father, Peter M. Brant, is the industrialist, art collector, polo enthusiast and publisher of Interview. Their mother is the supermodel Stephanie Seymour. Both are wisp thin. Peter’s deadpan, detached demeanor contrasts with Harry’s livelier, impish quality, a witty rejoinder ever ready.” There is much discussion of the boy’s fabulous style. Harry says his has evolved. “I used to only wear overalls, Alaïa T-shirts, and my mom’s Manolo Blahnik loafers,” he said. “That was my uniform.” Now he goes for “a designer armed forces look in a Louis Vuitton military jacket and Saint Laurent combat boots.” The Brant boys have 70,000 followers on Twitter. “Most of my tweets happen between 1 and 5 in the morning,” Harry said. “I’m a night owl, and random thoughts pop into my head. I’ll be watching Mommie Dearest, and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, my God, Joan Crawford is amazing.’” As for their future plans (besides partying), those seem to be up in the air. “‘I’m young and have a lot of time and can sit on that question,’ Harry said, before casting a comical sneer at his older brother. ‘But Peter, you have to hurry. You’re old candy. You’re withering away.’ Ever blasé, Peter tilted his head, looked at him blankly, then turned away, showing off his strong profile.” (via The New York Times)
PS, boys: Ryan and Joan are laughing at you.
She’s “reinventing herself” by going au naturel on the cover. Or that’s what she’d have us believe. Actually, she merely replaced her clown-length fake lashes with transvestite whore-length lashes and slathered her face with a pound of actual makeup instead of the pound of the pancake batter she usually uses. Does it work? Does this new look make you think: “WOW! KIM K! She’s just like us! She’s regular folk! I want to hang out with THIS Kim! I’ll forgive ALL her previous fame-whoring ways!” Um, not likely. But she does look better, I’ll grant the stylists and editors that.
Glamour model-turned-DJ Lauren Pope arrived at the Breaking Dawn premiere in London wearing a “custom made” dress by Louis Heal that made J-Lo’s infamous Grammy dress look positively puritanical in comparison. Tweeted Pope (in an Eliza Doolittle accent, I presume): “On way to Twilight premiere, hope we ain’t too late! I musta used a whole roll of tit tape on my dress, pls stay in place!! Ha…” and ”Its tit taped within an inch of its life down my bum! Ha ha.” Stay classy, Lauren! Love you! And I love the fist-in-crotch action in this picture, trying to keep a gust of wind from traumatizing poor Taylor Lautner, who had ALREADY SEEN ENOUGH! “Please, Mommy, make it stop!” he was overheard sobbing in the men’s room later.
