People has the most awesomest gallery on “celebrities” and their childhood Halloween costumes. How adorable!! Of course, they had some H&N in that mix, and included Cheryl Burke of Dancing With the Stars. She once dressed up as a belly dancer.

“I was a belly dancer that year for Halloween, it must have been the year that Aladdin was popular!” says the Dancing with the Stars fixture, pictured at age 6. “My favorite part of the whole costume was the snake bracelet curling up my arm, I felt so adult and glamorous.”

It must be nearing the start of a new Lost season, because the cast members are peeping out slowly. Here’s a random candid of Naveen Andrews with his older child Jaisal (I *think*). They were shopping at Jenny Bec’s, a children’s retail store in Santa Monica.

David Allen Grier, the actor and comedian, got married this summer to Christine Kim, the Hot & Nerdy Associate Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem, and now they are going to have a baby!

Kim talked to People and said that “We’re really excited. I have no morning sickness, no bizarre cravings” she says. “As far as David is telling me, unless he’s lying, I haven’t had any crazy, hormonal mood swings. It’s been a pleasant pregnancy so far.”

(Sorry the photos are so blurry…I did my best to find pictures of her/the couple…it wasn’t easy!)


Baby Season October 24, 2007

Celebrity baby-making totally on trend this year, and Rachel Roy, never one to be off-trend, revealed to’s Style File blog that she’s got a baby on the way!

Although we’re only midway through the week, it’s shaping up to be a pretty good one for designer Rachel Roy. We caught up with her moments before the premiere of “Mr. Untouchable,” the new film produced by her husband, Damon Dash, and just as she was about to head to Chicago for a hush-hush taping with a certain television icon based in the Windy City. Although she was mum on the details (she’s keen to keep any possible taping under her hat until it’s confirmed and on the telly), it wouldn’t be the first time that the Tribeca-based designer appeared on a certain television show reaching millions of sets around the world. What she did confirm—and what she admits to being just a tad more excited about—is a certain debut that won’t happen for another six months: her second child with the hip-hop mogul. Yep, Rachel is pregnant! “It’s number two,” she said. “And I am thrilled because number one, Ava, is the best thing in my life, and I have always wanted to have another little Ava—or Ava as a boy! So high fives all around!”

Little Daisy True was with mommy Meg Ryan doing some grocery shopping the other day. She was wearing a cute little flower dress — how very Daisy of her! The sad part is that she’s already wearing glasses. She’s like, two! Meg Ryan looks really happy with her, though. It’s funny that an adopted baby can make you get photographed more.



What will they name her? October 18, 2007

The Sex and the City movie plotlines seem so all over the place. But, this one definitely has continuity with the show — Charlotte’s adopted daughter from China comes to NYC. She’s pretty cute.
