Everyone's favourite female roommate, Zooey Deschanel, was walking on air in her ethereal Reem Acra gown at the Emmys. But better than her dress was her nail polish. That's one seriously talented manicurist she has.

Like A Fine Wine...

...James Van Der Beek only gets better with age. Don't you wish Dawson looked like this?

How could you not fall in love with that smile? I did - this summer during my Mad Men marathon.

What divorce drama? Heidi Klum stuns on the Emmy red carpet - and shows ex-husband Seal what he's missing.

No wonder those legs are insured...

BSB Does Old Navy

The Backstreet Boys jumped on the Old Navy gravy train. 

Hoping to reignite the ON-flame for children of the '80s, Old Navy has hired hasbeens to star in their new ad campaigns. I, for one, love these ads because I'm a fan of anything nostalgia. Backstreet Boys, Beverly Hills 90210 - sign me up. The general population, on the other hand? Not so much. 

Enjoy, everybody

Oh, Maxwell

Maxwell Drew Johnson certainly inherited the best of both her parents' genes.

The adorable four-month-old was the star of mom Jessica Simpson's Twitter account earlier today. The twosome were celebrating dad Eric Johnson's birthday, and obviously Jessica couldn't resist sharing photos of her daughter. If I have a baby as cute as Maxwell one day, I'll be doing the same thing.

How Much Privacy Can A Royal Expect?

The royal family can't catch a break.

On the heels of Price Harry's nude photo debacle, the always-perfect Kate Middleton is at the center of a topless brouhaha. The Duchess of Cambridge was caught on camera - sunbathing topless, no less - by a photographer with a super long lens. The paparazzi also mentioned to snap some shots of William delicately applying sunscreen to Kate's thonged-behind.

The royal family is rightfully angry. Actually, angry doesn't begin to describe it. They used the D-word (Diana) in a media statement they released once the photos went public. "The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so," said a palace spokesperson. If the Queen's people are bringing up Diana, then you know it's serious.

My take: the Harry and Kate situations are very different. Harry invited in this controversy, similar to other scenarios (or PR nightmares) that the spare heir is often plagued with. Kate's nude scandal is different. This was a clear invasion of her privacy as she was on private property, in the backyard of a secluded family home, when the photographer creepily snapped her photo. It's a breach of privacy. She's not a celebrity - or a reality star - she's the future Queen.

We Are Never Getting Back Together

This is better than MMMbop. Thanks Hanson - and Taylor Swift for the breakup anthem of the year.
