Sasha Pivovarova

Blessed with not just beauty but an artistic eye, model Sasha Pivovarova was recently asked by Chanel to create an illustration in honor of Chanel’s upcoming Moscow show. Apparently, Karl Lagerfeld was so taken by the catwalker’s talents that he has recruited her to work on a book of original illustrations inspired by Russian fairy tales. Pivovarova on her Muses: “My drawings were inspired by the joy of seeing fairytale characters come to life in one of the main theatres of Moscow, the city where I was born.” - PFSK

Kiefer Sutherland and Jack McCollough

Make no mistake: Jack Bauer will kick your ass. The 24 star reportedly started-and ended-a fight with Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough at a Metropolitan Museum Costume Gala after party in May 2009, where Sutherland was chatting with Brooke Shields. Sutherland believed McCollough had bumped into Shields and, after he neglected to apologize, was head-butted by the actor and suffered a broken nose. Shields' statement? McCollough did nothing wrong. McCollough told investigators that Sutherland "was drunk and obnoxious and wouldn't back down or be logical." The two have since called a truce, but Sutherland will be charged in court for the assault.

Axl Rose and Tommy Hilfiger

Everybody knows you don't mess with preppy fashion designers-but some have to learn their lesson the hard way. In May 2006, Tommy Hilfiger went after Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose in the middle of Rosario Dawson's 27th birthday party at Manhattan club The Plumm, for reasons that still remain unclear. Some say Hilfiger was peeved that Rose moved his girlfriend's drink, others say he was annoyed that he'd been asked to make room for the rocker and his entourage. And still others paint a more thuggish image of the fashion mogul, suggesting the attack was premeditated. Whatever the reason, Hilfiger went "nuclear" on Rose, socking him in the eye, before being escorted out. After the fight, Rose brushed himself off and played an acoustic set with the rest of GNR. All's well that ends well? -The Daily Beast

GLORIA VANDERBILT, iconic New Yorker, has gone from poor little rich girl to dirty old lady. Her novel, "Obsession: An Erotic Tale," out in June from Ecco books, has found its way into my hot, little hands, where it's burning a hole. Packed with four-letter words I don't think my mother knows, as well as innovative tips for employing garden vegetables, there's not much I can print. It's Al Goldstein, filtered through the exclusive Miss Porter's School. - Andrea Peyser, NY Post
