RIP: Farrah

"Cancer is my own private war. The strain, the nausea, the fever take turns challenging my strength, my mind and my spirit"
Farrah Fawcett passed away today from cancer at the age of 62. It's horrible because just the other day she announced that she would marry her boyfriend of 30 years. In my eyes, I remember watching her in "Man of the House," and in Health class, we watched "The Burning Bed." Although I know when most people think of her they think of "Charlie's Angels." She epitomized the 70s to so many people, not to mention the Farrah hair style was as renowned as Donald Trump's is now.
R.I.P Farrah (1947--2009)

Speaking of Farrah Fawcetts hair, could we forget when Paris Hilton tried to pull it off for a red carpet event? She was attacked by bees.

According to a recent article, Johnny Depp and his co-stars from "Public Enemys" dined late at Gibson's Steakhouse in Chicago, ordering food and wine that totaled a $4400 bill, then Depp left the waiter a tip of $4000. Sometimes it really is good to be a waiter, I guess.

These pictures are from the premiere of "Public Enemys." I think he stayed pretty conventional in his fashion choices, but I do love how he added the blue shades.

Givenchy premiered a beautiful resort collection a couple weeks ago. It included drape dresses with gold accents that gives his clothes the feel a goddess, not to mention that gorgeous blue jumpsuit.
