Two words: Pete Doherty.
Â Â Â I am not even sure what fascination he holds. Once a boyfriend of Kate Moss? Read that story. Druggie? Read that story.
Â Â Â Unless he cleans up and gets a knighthood, I am not sure why anyone would make him the subject of any story. Youâ€™ll notice we didnâ€™t, all year.
With less on the newswires today except for more Sarko and Bruni, we thought weâ€™d put up a few of the unpublished images from our server. Here are two that didnâ€™t make publication for one reason or another: American Idolâ€™s Katharine McPhee (mentioned by Summer Rayne Oakes in Lucire 20) at a skin cancer beneﬁt hosted by Too Faced Cosmetics in May 2007; and, in the same month, two models at a Diesel function in the same area. These were from Lucireâ€™s west coast editor Elyse Glickman.
In todayâ€™s video, Peopleâ€™s Ericka Souter discusses her magazineâ€™s end-of-year double issue featuring the best and worst of 2007. Patrick Dempsey is the stand-out celebrity, and makes the cover as â€˜Star of the Yearâ€™. Inside, thereâ€™s an interview with President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush.
In addition, People pays tribute to eight other celebrities:
Amy Adams: the Breakout
Katherine Heigl: Americaâ€™s New Sweetheart
Carrie Underwood: the Chart Topper
Tyler Perry: the Triple-Threat
Matt Damon: the Sexiest Hero
Johnny Depp: Most Versatile Actor
Christina Applegate: Comeback of the Year
Tyler Perry: the Triple-Threat
Will Smith: the Biggest Legend
Weâ€™d say Peopleâ€™s pretty on the ball with their picks as 2007 draws to a close. Now, who will be the stars of 2008? We wonder.
How did the celebrities creating designs for the H&M Fashion Against Aids collection get their inspiration? What are the meanings behind the designs? In this video, they reveal all. (Licensed till June 18, 2008.)
Last night, the nominees for Lucireâ€™s Car to be Seen in 2008 were announced:
Â Â Â Look, ma: no minivans or SUVs. These still have not distinguished themselves, in our book. One looks much the same as the otherâ€”except for the Volvo XC60, which we hope to see in production form in 2008.
Â Â Â I had wanted the Renault Laguna (above) to make it, but the divisive styling has seen to its omission. Pity: the 5Â·5 l/100 km (55 mpg Imperial) dCi model sounded just right for our fuel-sensitive times. Itâ€™s not often such a big car comes with a tiny 1Â·5 litre engine.
Â Â Â Still, out of the six nominees the ﬁnal award should still be hard-fought.
