Rihanna wasn't wearing her best red carpet look at the InStyle Covergirl party in LA Thursday night.
Today in Heath Ledger's hometown, 600 people came out to mourn and celebrate the late actor's life. The invite only ceremony included family and friends, but no baby Matilda. Songs were sung including a lullaby by Ben Harper called Happily Ever After in Your Eyes written for Matilda per Heath's request almost two years ago. The family and Cate Blanchett spoke as well as Michelle Williams who read Shakespeare's, Sonnet 18, you know, "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day." After the sad ceremony, the mood changed as 50 of the friends, including Michelle, ran onto a beach with (and some without) their clothes on. Here are more details of the celebration, which finally produced some smiles that would have made Heath proud:
Those in the water laughed and cheered as Michelle watched from the shore. Ledger's sister Kate also took a dive into the water and was surrounded by pals splashing around her while her father Kim Ledger watched from the restaurant's balcony and shouted, "Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!" giving two thumbs up in the air.
As the sun began to set, the swimmers came on shore and stood in a line on both sides of Williams and linked arms. In the last five minutes, as the sun moved toward the horizon, the mourners stood in silence, watching and embracing. Williams hugged Kate Ledger and smiled as she watched the sunset at 8:15 p.m., local time. Two mourners in the group summoned up the moment as they stood behind Williams. "The sun goes down on our love," they said. "But it will never go down on Heathy."
As saddening as this whole thing has been, it is so sweet to finally see some smiles. Michelle clearly has an excellent support system and we hope she and the rest of Heath's family continues to mourn in peace as well as slowly learn to smile again.
Some of the biggest names of Fashion Week were there to close down the tents in NYC yesterday. Donna Karan, Sean John and Ralph Lauren all showed off their new collections on Friday in front of star-studded front rows, but it was the Marc Jacobs show last night that had everyone buzzing. After starting over two hours late last NY Fashion Week, MJ got things going relatively on time and surprised the audience with a live Sonic Youth concert while the models strutted the runway. Check out photos of the looks MJ churned out this time over on Fab. As reported, Kevin Federline was front and center for the show alongside the likes of an especially fierce looking Victoria Beckham and Selma Blair. Hotness. K-Fed looks a little tired these days — I wonder why. The man of the hour Marc himself looked like he was having a blast at the show and after party, gotta believe it's always a relief as soon as it's over. NY Fashion Week always feels like a marathon so I'm betting this weekend will involve a lot of sleep for the A-List front row staples.

A handful of the UK's finest were at London's Grosvenor House on Friday evening for the Awards of The London Film Critics Circle cocktail party. James McAvoy and Vanessa Redgrave were on hand to represent their Oscar-nominated film Atonement, while others like Sienna Miller simply enjoyed the evening's festivities. No Country For Old Men took home Film of the Year, but James didn't go home empty-handed as he won Best Actor. All of this award-giving is yet another reminder that the Oscars are rapidly approaching — so fill out your Oscar ballot before the big day arrives!

Last weekend John Mayer boarded the Mayercraft Carrier on a cruise with some of his biggest fans. We realized while it might be a dream come true for the passengers it could have become a total nightmare for the celebrity. John seemed to be such a good sport about the whole thing, but we can imagine how it could go wrong. So tell us — would you pay to go on a cruise with your favorite star?
