Madonna played it sexy in a demure, star-covered Stella McCartney dress for tonight's Met Gala in NYC. She had her longtime manager and close friend Guy Oseary as her date for the evening, and he posed with her on the red carpet. Madonna's loose curls and bright red lips completed the classic look and she was careful not to get her stiletto heels stuck in her gown as she made her way up the stairs. Stella McCartney had a big night dressing her celebrity friends, with Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hailee Steinfeld, and Rihanna also decked out in the designer. Weigh in on Madonna and all the rest of the 2011 Met Gala red-carpet pictures with Fab and Bella's live love it or leave it polls!
Javier Bardem was quite the sprited cheerleader alongside his very pregnant wife Penelope Cruz at last night's Christmas Lakers game in LA. Javier and Penelope stayed in California for the holiday due to the airport trouble in Europe, and it looks like they had a blast despite the team's tough loss. The happy couple were even featured on the kiss cam and happily obliged with PDA for the crowd! The Staples center was packed with celebrities including Cameron Diaz, who was back from her bikini-filled vacation in Mexico with Alex Rodriguez in time to spend the weekend at home. She had Guy Oseary instead of her romantic getaway partner ARod as her courtside date. Jeremy Piven and Emmanuelle Chriqui had a mini Entourage reunion, while Kanye West chatted with Kris Jenner.
Madonna attended Kabbalah services on Saturday in NYC with Jesus Luz and her children ahead of her adoption appeal beginning today in Malawi. Unfortunately, more drama surrounds the proceedings — the man claiming to be Mercy's father filmed a three-part-interview with The Early Show in which he talks about wanting to take care of Mercy himself. He has never met Mercy, and Madonna's rep says no one's sure if he's actually her dad. Sounds like things are getting complicated for Madonna, but she's not one to shy away from a fight.
