Alice in Wonderland Premieres in Rainy London

It wasn't the most beautiful of nights, but the cinematically gorgeous Alice in Wonderland premiere in London brought out everyone from stars Anne Hathaway (top photo), Mia Wasikowska (second photo) and Helena Bonham Carter (with director Tim Burton, third photo), to Avril Lavigne (who showed up with estranged husband Deryck Whibley, bottom photo), Johnny Depp, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Michael Sheen.

The stars got soaked on the green carpet outside of the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square - all in the name of good cinema!

We can't wait to see this one.

Who the F is This?

Her name is Teresa Palmer.

The 24-year old Australian model/actress is best known for playing Violet Nottingham in Adam Sandler's 2008 film Bedtime Stories, but will be starring in the forthcoming Young Americans alongside Topher Grace and Anna Faris in May 2010.

Here is Palmer at the premiere of Shutter Island at the Ziegfeld Wednesday night.

Looking forward to seeing more!

We've always been intrigued by the designs we see when we pass the Faconnable store on 51st in Midtown, so when we got an invitation to preview their Fall 2010 collection at their plush Fifth Avenue offices Thursday, you know we jumped!

Matt Damon Talks Green Zone with Director Paul Greengrass

The last person we saw at Apple Soho's "Meet the Filmmaker" series was Sarah Silverman, so it's kind of amazing that the next person at their program was her SNL song muse Matt Damon!

Poison Ivy trekked through the blizzard Friday night to attend Damon's Q&A with film director Paul Greengrass - the man behind Damon's forthcoming Green Zone and the brains behind the Bourne Ultimatum and Supremacy.

Green Zone is the story of a "weapons of mass destruction hunter [Damon] on a quest for the truth in Saddam [Hussein's] palace in Green Zone, Baghdad," explained Greengrass, who hired 30 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to play actual soldiers in the film.

"They helped us get the details right and make it authentic," Damon said, admitting that "I felt like a deadbeat actor barking orders at these 30 vets without coming out of character and apologizing."

The Q&A also took a less serious tone, with Damon realizing "I always have to do a lot of running in all of [Greengrass'] movies," and talking briefly about upcoming flick True Grit.

"I'm really excited to work with the Coen Brothers, Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin," Damon said, when asked if there's anyone he wanted to work with but hasn't.

"That's why I have this mustache. Either that, or I'm getting into 80's porn."

When asked if he thought the invasion of Iraq was a mistake or a malice, Greengrass replied that it doesn't matter.

"What matters is that it created a toxic legacy of mistrust," Greengrass explained. "The contract between the governed and the government was damaged and it's going to take a long time to fix it. I'd rather not have some bloke in a bar impose his views on me, but rather, tell me an interesting story. That's what we're trying to do."

Fergie, Will.i.am Tear Up During Emotional Madison Square Garden Concert

It was an emotional night for the Black Eyed Peas Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. The hip-hop foursome - arguably regarded as the most successful group of the last decade - just learned that their latest single "Imma Be" hit number one on Billboard's Hot 100.

"Six number ones is not an accident," frontman Will.i.am told the crowd, wiping away tears before performing the night's closing song "I Gotta Feeling" with co-producer David Guetta on the turntables.

"We've been the Black Eyed Peas since 1995," Will added, letting the audience know it hasn't always been smooth sailing for the group.

BEP played more than two hours of hits during the AEG Live-produced show, including "Let's Get It Started," "Don't Phunk with My Heart," "Pump It," "Where is the Love" and "My Humps," while each member also came out for a solo performance (highlights: Will.i.am spinning Michael Jackson on a suspended DJ booth, second photo, and Taboo flying through the arena on a glow-in-the-dark motorcycle, video below).

"This has been a dream of mine for so long," Fergie said, too tearing up before her solo performance of "Glamorous" featuring special guest Ludacris. "To come to New York City and headline Madison Square Garden!"

Check out videos of the waterworks, along with Fergie's Ludacris duet and Taboo's motorcycle ride, in Poison Ivy's exclusive concert videos, below.

Joey McIntyre, Sutton Foster Perform for Equal Rights

"Let's cut the shit," says Joey McIntyre. The New Kid on the Block got a little heated during an equal rights benefit performance at Feinstein's at New York's Loews Regency Monday night, urging the hundred-something people in the room to support their gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

"We're all here because we want the same thing - equal rights," advocated Tony Award winner Sutton Foster, who opened the night with a dazzling set.

The True Colors Tour, a monthly cabaret organized by Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund and Broadway Impact, has featured everyone from Jason Mraz to Wanda Sykes to Lea Michele since its inception in 2007.

McIntyre performed a varied lineup for the crowd of adoring fans, ranging from "Love," a song he auditioned for NKOTB with ("I guess it worked," he joked), to a cover of Wyclef Jean's "Grateful," to The Music Man's "Gary, Indiana," to New Kid's first single "Please Don't Go Girl."

"I sang this song when I was 14, before my voice changed," McIntyre warned the audience. "Now I sing it just a couple steps down."

Check out McIntyre's performance of "Gary, Indiana" below, and visit the True Colors Fund to make a contribution toward equal rights today.
