Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kat Von D & Jesse James fug up the Art of Elysium event


These are just some of the photos from last night’s Art of Elysium’s gala. It was a parade of “Who?” for the most part (Rachel Bilson was there, shock), but there were a few bigger names, for some reason. I was going to start out with my beloved Gerard Butler, but I was quickly transfixed by Jennifer Love Hewitt and her boyfriend Alex Beh. I mean… when did Jennifer Love lose her damn mind? I can’t even see how this dress looked good on the rack. YIKES.

The second biggest WTF appearance was Jesse James and Kat Von D. Kat looks like death warmed over. Jesse looks heavily medicated. They so deserve each other. Oh, and yes, Kat looks pregnant. Gross.



On to Gerard. He’s been looking so good lately – he’s lost some weight, and he’s kept it off. His hair is a really great length now, and the only thing that would really improve his appearance is a really great shave. BUT – I just have to say this: even at his gut-and-moobs explosion best, I still would have hit like a house on a fire.



Kelly Osbourne, looking like hell. Bad makeup job, dumb prom dress.


Nicole Richie – like the dress, hate the hair and makeup. She was aiming for vintagey 1920s, and she just looks corpsey.


I strongly believe Julia Stiles got some radical Botox. Her face looks like it’s made of wax.


James Franco was there! He looked baked.

    One cannot take food into these events so I can only assume Jennifer was attempting to smuggle in a pressurized container of marshmallow cream when it detonated.

  2. HotPockets says:

    My co-worker always tells me that I bare a resemblance to Kat Von D and than I proceed to go “BLehhhh..” but every male there always tells me that’s a good thing, because she is really hot. Am I missing something here? because I always think Kat looks like Hell warmed over.

  3. jackie says:

    CAT Von D INDEED! She looks like she was jacked in the face with whatever Kim K is using – EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWW!

  4. Rachael says:

    Julia Stiles jumpsuit is bangin. I want one. Super classy.

  5. Gabriela says:

    She always looks pregnant, yet she always goes for tight bandage dresses. Bitch loves to look ridiculous.

  6. malachais says:

    @hotpockets, Kat normally looks bad in photos. She look alot better in video/in person. IMO she doesn’t look so bad in these pics, and I’m surprised they’re still together.

    Julia looks like she’s got some heavy foundation on along with bad lighting.

  7. Trillion says:

    Agree that Gerard looks better than usual here, but why can’t he just take care of that neck hair? Franco looks a little better than usual too, but I hate that he continues to attempt facial hair. It’s like he’s trying to sabotage his natural cute-ness.

  8. Gabriela says:

    @malachais Wow, seriously? How does she look any good? She looks like Michael Jackson. God, look at that hair, that proeminent belly, terrible stretched face. And we’re not even talking about someone who may not look that good on the outside, but the inside makes up for it. We’re just talkin about someone who is ugly both ways. Obviously ugly, I mean.

  9. original kate says:

    jesse and kat look like they’re on their way to a kegger on the other side of the trailer park.

  10. lisa says:

    I always laugh when Kelly O critiques celebrities on their clothing choices.

    I wonder why she Joan and the others don’t chat about their hits and misses.

    Nicole doses not look good. that dress looks like it has hairs on it. Butler needs to go to a good barber. that neck hair is nasty. James is OK.. but he always looks stoned.

    Man.. the awards season and such are so far blah.. nothing fun or interesting.

    ITAWY on this
    … from last night’s Art of Elysium’s gala. It was a parade of “Who?” for the most part,


  11. guesty says:

    I like jloves dress. Don’t judge! Lol.

    That’s a very intriguing name for a charity.

  12. Sigh. says:

    BLERGH! Soooo sick off GButt’s neck fur!

    When I meet him, the very first thing I’m gonna do is wrestle him to the ground, lather him up…and…uh…what were we talking about?

    And Nicole and KvD needs to at least switch dresses. That’s too much dress/too long for Nicole, and Kat needs to cover up some more of her Sunday Comics, they’re distracting at best (and I have tattoos).

  13. Holly says:

    I think Gerard Butler is one of the hottest men in Hollyweird, but I hate that he cannot seem to find one person in his life that will tell him to shave that GD neck of his! Also, he is a bit too thin now. The King is dead, boo hoo. He was hotter when he had muscles. Now he looks like all the other skinny people he associates with.

  14. brin says:

    Jennifer Love Hewitt’s dress is as disturbing as Julianne Moore’s dress that also looked like two dresses in one (maybe they can’t make up their crazy minds). Nicole’s hair looks awful…kind of a bad version of Reese’s hair in “Water for Elephants”.

  15. Zzzzzzzzzz says:

    I kinda like Kat Von D’s dress here. And yeah she’s got a bit of a belly but so what. Wish she’d refrain from the zombie make up though. I’ve decided she and Jesse James are probably a really good match together. Sandra Bullock must have been insane to think she could ever tame/change this guy. Gerard Butler looks better than he usually does but he still grosses me out.

  16. heb says:

    Kat is def wearing those Herve Leger dresses on purpose to spark preggo rumors. This is the second time Kat, come on!

  17. Launicaangelina says:

    I like Kelly’s make-up. Dress, not so much. Kay Von D always has a gut. U can tell she doesn’t do any ab workouts. She likes the pregnancy rumors, I’m sure.

  18. Yasmine says:

    Haven’t seen Julia Stiles for a while, and I just remembered that she also went to an ivy league school, Columbia. Yet she isn’t the snotty and condescending biatch that Natalie Portman is. Another reason I like Julia Stiles even more. I agree with Kaiser, her face does look waxed, is it the lighting?

  19. dit says:

    Wish Julia Stiles would make more memorable movies. I need to see her in Dexter.

  20. bubbles says:

    no matter how skinny Kelly O gets her arms and legs always look untoned and gross. come on, cover up, gurl. it’s messing with my appetite. you just ain’t that.

  21. Really? says:

    Love James him more if he is baked!

  22. jc126 says:

    I think it’s bloat, not pregnancy. But they’re both idiots, so they make a good couple – better two idiots with each other, than them ruining the lives of other non-idiots.
    I like Kelly Osbourne, and I hope she keeps off the weight.
    James Franco – hot as always.

  23. kimberly says:

    Kat VonNasty looks like a crackhead in those pics. . . side note: love that her book is a 5.99 bargain book!!! haha

  24. Shannon says:

    I very much doubt that Julia Stiles would ever do Botox. She’s pretty serious about being an actress – a real one I mean, not one who stands around looking pretty.

    Kat Von D needs to STOP whatever she’s doing to her face, she’s starting to look like Jocelyn Wildenstein.

  25. DrM says:

    Julia Stiles…WTF?? She looks heinous…I tend to agree with the Botox call K…

  26. Minx2 says:

    Who invited Jesse and that Kat woman? Someone really tried to cheapen this event. Yuck!!

  27. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Butler: Gilette disposables, $7.99 a bag. I know you’re a Scot but this is ridiculous.

  28. Gigohead says:

    Who was the organizer of this event? did they pull a list from the local DMV? Who invited Jesse James? The guy is pond scum. Kat Von D is losing big time with this guy. I saw in Sephora that they were trying to unload her makeup 50 percent.

  29. L! says:

    Kat Von D & Jesse James are still together? Wow. I thought they broke up awhile ago…

  30. candy says:

    Jesse and Kat are a match made in heaven. Sandra was in over her head thinking she was a tough girl. She and Ryan deserve each other just as these two do.

    I’m guessing Gerard Butler is playing a werewolf in his next movie?

  31. Ohforf says:

    I think Julia Stiles just has a REALLY shiny face. I noticed it during this season of Dexter, and in places on her face that they don’t botox.

  32. Camille says:

    They *all* look fecking awful. *shudder*

  33. Emily says:

    When DOESN’T Franco look high? That said, if I didn’t have a hosting gig or nomination, I’d habitually rock up to these things stoned, too. I imagine it would improve them.

    Love Julia’s jumpsuit, too. Hope she’s not using botox though.

  34. orion70 says:

    Everyone can hate on the neck fuzz, but I would curl up on that for an entire winter and be a very, very happy girl. I love me some Gerry no matter what he looks like, but I agree, he has been looking especially pounce-worthy lately.

  35. Quixotic1205 says:

    @yasmine Seriously I think Julia Stiles is shingled pretentious and snotty. Way back when people actually cared and gave her interviews on Leno and Conan, she was absolutely unbearable. She read stupid poems she wrote while at Columbia. She sucks and think shes way worse than Portman ( and worse at acting too!)

  36. Shay says:

    Aren’t those wretched tight bandage dresses yesterday’s news? It doesn’t matter what Kate Von D wears, all her trashy tattoos bring down everything. I’d cringe if I was the designer she chose to wear.

  37. Samigirl says:

    @heb, I was waiting on someone to point out the fact that this was the 2nd time she wore this dress to an event. It looked terrible months ago, looks bad now.

  38. Scarlet Vixen says:

    @Quitxotic & Yasmine: Ya, Julia Stiles is way worse than Natalie Portman. At least Natalie can be gracious and sweet at times. I’ve never seen Julia Stiles to be anything other than snooty and condescending.

    BTW, did anyone catch the Critic’s Choice Awards? I thought Natalie Portman was kinda adorable, and her speech seemed awfully genuine and sweet.

  39. Victoria says:

    What the hell does Kelly O do? She’s ugly and too short. That face! That fake British accent! She was raised in California and only visited England for God’s sake!

  40. Saor says:

    Kat Von D- she’s one stupid bitch.

  41. bagladey says:

    I thought Jesse James so hated the red carpet that he only used to put on his “monkey suit” and do the spiel because of Sandra? Jesse and Kat both look low rent in their ill-fitting, cheap-ass looking clothes and horrible shoes. They look like they’re walking the red carpet at a porn show.

  42. December says:

    Kat Von D reminds me of Kayako, the freaky ghost chick from The Grudge. I can’t decide who is scarier.


    Oh – anyone else notice the ring that’s on the left hand? I see she’s trying to start up the engagement rumors again.

  43. truthzbetta says:

    This post is hella funny.

    Kat and Jesse. Where to begin, just so nasty. I mean Colin Farrell is naughty nasty but an excellent lay from all we hear, and the fact he wanted to bone a 70 year old classic British, well respected actress when he was 28 is the classic of all times. Also, he pleasures women in many ways. That tongue does more than a great Irish brogue. He’s a giver.

    Jesse James is just a disease. And the alien from Deep Space 9 with him just made me throw up. I wish I didn’t share a planet with these two.

  44. KJ says:

    I’ll jump to Kat’s defense for a millisecond. It wasn’t until she became a tabloid fixture that she started really messing with her face. If you see her on early episodes of Miami Ink and LA Ink (first season only) she really does have beautiful features. She used to be very, very pretty. When she started the fucking with her face, she fell prey just like every other celeb who thinks theyre not good enough even though they looked better BEFORE the work. Now she constantly looks frozen and waxy, and the hair color is disgusting. It completely washes her out. It’s like she was going for Morticia Adamms.

    That being said, she sucks and so does Jesse so I’m glad they’re with each other and not terrorizing normal people (Sandra Bullock). Crazy + crazy = good. Crazy + sane = UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIP LEAVE NOW.

  45. B says:

    JLH has always been an ’80s-ish dork, imo. I used to think Kat was hot, in a way, now she looks needy, love the HL dress though…

  46. Richi says:

    EWWWW KAT looks so trashy!

    That dress of Jennifer is hideous as ever!!!!

  47. Hakura says:

    I’ve always thought of Kat Von D as the sort of person that (if you accidentally bumped into her) would leave a ‘sticky residue’ on you. Jesse is already slimy beyond the point of no return, so they’re a great match up.

    I used to like Kat, I was fascinated by her skills as an artist. But it got to a point where she was her own biggest fan, & become somehow convinced that she’s God’s gift to the tattoo industry.

    Then oddly, even released a makeup line meant to COVER tattoos… Isn’t that a little counterintuitive? It even makes a quiet statement that enough people regret getting them or run into situations where they aren’t appropriate… that a full makeup line is necessary. She has waaaay too many, obviously… I can’t stand that look, it just makes her look filthy. (I’m sure as hell not dissing tattoos. Just when people take it THAT far.)

    Holy GOD, WTF did Julia Styles do to herself? She doesn’t even look like a well done wax figure.

  48. Kasey says:

    Is it just me or does JLH’s dress look like either a maternity outfit or a hiding a bump outfit? Don’t get me wrong, I do NOT think she is pregnant. She strikes me as one who follows the love, marriage and THEN a baby carriage model. But I just can’t believe it didn’t cross her mind that this dress is unflattering for anyone who isn’t pregnant.

  49. Shazza says:

    Kat is looking very Rumer-ish to me.

  50. Jennifer says:

    I feel the need to shower after seeing the Jesse James/Kat Von D pic…

  51. Laura says:

    I don’t think Kat looks pregnant, maybe just a tad bloated/bad posture. Ugly, yes, pregnant, no.

  52. JenJen says:

    Jesse James continues to publicly hurt and embarrass Sandra. Maybe that is why she looked so weird at the globes. He re-opened his twitter this month just to publicly state that Kat is his other half and that he has never felt so loved.

  53. eagerusbeaverus says:

    Kat Von D will make a great mom..Her skin is already an Etch A Sketch.
