The REAL Pamela Anderson... and the glam TV version

Pamela Anderson has long held the enviable status of being one of the world's most desirable women.

But everyone has bad days, and yesterday the former Baywatch star went for a stroll in New York's Central Park with her 10-year-old son Dylan and a mystery man looking worn-out and uncharacteristically dowdy.

The 41-year-old may not have been looking her best but, proving she still knows how to accessorise, was carrying a designer bag.

However, just hours later and Pamela had undergone a complete turnaround.

Arriving to film an appearance on The David Letterman Show, the mother-of-two looked stunning in a tight white dress that showed off her best-known assets.

Earlier this month, Pamela enjoyed a two-hour stint on Australia's Big Brother reality TV show.

Despite being paid a reported £245,000 for her guest appearance on the KFC-sponsored show, the star took part in a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) protest against the fast-food eatery just one day later.

Vegan animal rights campaigner Pamela took to the streets with fellow protesters demanding the fried chicken giants implement better guidelines for treating the birds.

She said she was unaware the chain was partially funding the reality show prior to signing up.

Eva Longoria Parker makes uncharacteristic fashion faux-pas but still looks pretty in pink

She's revered as having an immaculate taste in fashion, but yesterday Eva Longoria Parker appeared to have an uncharacteristically off day on the wardrobe front.

The Desperate Housewives actress was accompanying her basketball star husband Tony to a barber shop in Los Angeles.

Wearing a peculiar combination of a bright pink dress and an off-white hat, the 33-year-old patiently waited while San Antonio Spurs star Tony had his head shaved.

Pretty in pink: But Eva Longoria Parker didn't look her usual stylish self

Nevertheless, Eva looked as typically beautiful and relaxed despite her colour coordination.

Just one day earlier, looking stylish in a sleek black dress and cadet cap she appeared to be channeling her friend Victoria Beckham

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Victoria won't mind that Eva has now copied her signature biker chic look.

Recently, heiress Paris Hilton was seen sporting much the same look.

And it's not just Victoria's wardrobe she has been studying, as earlier this week she unveiled her new 'Pob' - the Posh bob - hairstyle, after she chopped her glossy brunette locks for the shorter style.

Eva was seen in Hollywood after leaving a hair salon, where she had her eyebrows waxed.

Jennifer, who already has a 2-year-old daughter Violet with Affleck, is believed to be more than five months pregnant.

Affleck's firm friend Kevin Smith, who also starred alongside Garner in Catch and Release, said the Hollywood pair make ideal parents.

He told People magazine: 'Jen is such a Martha Stewart type. She is a perfect mum.'

Baby Bennifer: The couple are preparing for the arrival of their second child

And Ben is a great dad, which I found not that surprising, but it's a side of him that I never thought about before he became a dad.

'He's a great father. He loves that kid of his.'

Of juggling motherhood with her career, Garner says: 'My job is great to have as a mom. I get to take breaks and then work in a really concentrated way. During that concentrated time, it sucks, but whatever.'

Garner and Affleck started dating in July 2004 after splitting from Alias co-star Michael Vartan and Jennifer Lopez respectively.

Outrage as Britney Spears' toddler plays with cigarettes as smoking singer watches on

Britney Spears' parenting skills have come under fire yet again after photographs emerged showing the star smoking in front of her son as he plays with a packet of cigarettes.

The singer, branded 'Puff Mommy' by the American press, eventually takes the Marlboro Lights and a lighter from the two-year-old's hands, but continues to subject him to second-hand smoke.

What a drag: Britney Spears puffs on a cigarette outside her Beverly Hills home as her son Sean Preston reaches for her packet of Marlboro Lights

I wonder if mummy can see me now: The three-year-old begins to pull a cigarette out of the packet

Health experts have criticised Britney's 'shocking' behaviour, calling her a 'poor role model' for her children.

It comes a week after Britney officially agreed to give her ex-husband Kevin Federline sole custody of the couple's two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden, 1.

She is currently allowed two visits and one overnight per week in the settlement.

Stepping in: Britney eventually takes the packet and lighter from her son

It is the latest in a string of high-profile parenting dramas for the 26-year-old.

In January this year, she was placed on lockdown for a mental evaluation after she locked herself in a room with Sean Preston at her LA home and refused to hand him over to Federline.

In February 2006, she was caught driving with Sean Preston on her lap with no seat belts and the following month she received a visit from child welfare officers when Sean Preston fell from his high chair, bruising his head.

That same year, she was photographed nearly dropping him while leaving a New York hotel.

Arriving at the French Riviera's seaside with a female friend, a hot and bothered Bar swiftly removed her floral jumpsuit.

It appeared the beauty was desperate to jump in the inviting water as quickly as possible as she performed a rapid strip before plunging into the refreshing sea.

Bar's golden tan was perfectly complemented by her hot pink bikini and aviator shades.

Mischa Barton gets frisky on the beach with her rocker boyfriend

Actress Mischa Barton certainly made the most of her time at the beach, as she canoodled with musician boyfriend Taylor Locke.

The star looked svelte in a colourful bikini, and sported a natural make-up free look as she spent the afternoon on Venice Beach, Los Angeles, kissing and cuddling dark-haired Locke, guitarist of rock band Rooney.

The pair have been dating since earlier this year, and it looks like they're going pretty steady.

Love on the beach: Mischa Barton makes her feelings for her musician boyfriend Taylor Locke pretty clear as they canoodle on LA's Venice Beach

Free-spirited Mischa recently spoke about her love life, telling the US edition of Marie Claire: 'I’m lucky to know you can have more than one soul mate in life.

'But, like a true actress, I’m always changing the way I feel about who I want to be. Nowadays, I feel I’m settling more into a woman and I’m understanding who I am.'

However, last year it seemed as though Mischa was struggling to put spoilt teen Marissa Cooper, who she played in teen drama The OC, behind her, after she was arrested for driving under the influence.

The actress was sentenced to three years probation and to complete a three-month course in alcohol education after pleading no contest to drink driving charges in April.

Beach babe: Mischa looks svelte and toned as she wore a colourful bikini on Venice Beach

Recalling the incident in the interview, Mischa admits she was shocked at her arrest, because it grouped her with other young Hollywood stars she would prefer not to be associated with.

She spoke out about the low period in the new issue of US Marie Claire: 'It was a low point in my life. I mean, the truth of the matter is, I was being irresponsible to begin with – I moved to LA and never got a license.

'I don’t know, it was just an awful low for me'.

She added: 'Even though, in a lot of ways, my upbringing has been quite liberal, something like that is embarrassing and appalling for my parents.

'It was a surreal experience and I was shocked at how much press it made but, the thing is, I apologised – and you have to just hope that that’s enough, because what else can you do? I’m just living life, and people make mistakes, you know'.

Their will they, won't they romance kept viewers guessing for years.

And as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reunited on the red carpet at the London premiere of The X Files: I Want To Believe, the two actors looked very close.

The film is being released in the UK and Ireland on Friday.

Leggy Kelly Brook flashes her famous pins AGAIN as she enjoys a summer day out

When Kelly Brook first leaped to fame, she quickly gained attention for her cleavage.

But as the Kent-born beauty attempts to establish herself as a serious actress, she's making sure the focus moves south to her fabulous long legs.

In recent weeks, the 28-year-old model-turned-actress has been flashing her slender pins in a series of short skirts.

Legs eleven: Kelly Brook shows off her pins in a short summer dress as she strolls down a London street yesterday

Spotted out enjoying the sun in London yesterday, Kelly gave her long legs the appearance of extra length with a pair of sky-high heels.

Days after wearing another colourful outfit at the polo, Kelly opted for a low-cut mustard floral summer dress for her solo trip to the capital.

Along with her handbag, Kelly was armed with a camera, perhaps preparing to get her own back at the paparazzi and take her own photos of them.

Despite the continued presence of her engagement ring on her wedding finger, Kelly hasn't been seen with on/off fiance Billy Zane for several weeks.

Legging it: Kelly Brook clutches a camera for her day out in London

While Kelly has had to remain in England to film her role as presenter on TV talent show Dirty Dancing: The Time Of Your Life, Billy has been in his native America filming his latest movie Magic Man alongside Bai Ling.

After splitting in April, it appeared the couple couldn't live without each other as they were spotted back together at the Cannes Film Festival in France two months later.

On Sunday, Kelly made a fashion faux pas when she teamed a floral jumpsuit and red gloves at the Cartier International Polo event in Windsor.

Despite her unusual choice of handwear, Kelly's short outfit guaranteed maximum paparazzi attention by flashing her long legs.

It's the first time the pair, who have been married for 11 years, have been seen together since a US magazine claimed he had a three month relationship with another woman while she was filming the Sex and the City movie.

It also follows fresh reports the couple have been 'living separate lives for some time'.

A source said that the 43-year-old actress had told a friend she and Broderick, 46, 'had been out of love for a long time but remain married for their son'.

'Sure they fight like other couples but they love each other and their little boy. They are so private and hate all this silly gossip.'

Now Eva Longoria takes biker chic inspiration from pal Victoria Beckham

Actress Eva Longoria must be desperate for fashion tips, as the Desperate Housewives star appears to be taking plenty of inspiration from her friend Victoria Beckham.

As the 33-year-old actress stepped out in Hollywood wearing sunglasses and a black cadet cap, much like her former Spice Girl friend.

And it's not just Victoria's wardrobe she has been studying, as earlier this week she unveiled her new 'Pob' - the Posh bob - hairstyle, after she chopped her glossy brunette locks for the shorter style.

Both she and Victoria's other Hollywood pal, Katie Holmes have copied Posh by chopping off their locks. But a source claimed Eva, who plays Gabrielle Soliz in the TV drama, has changed her look to look dowdy for a DH plot.

The source told Star magazine: 'Her character has let herself go. Gabrielle has gained weight and cut her hair.'

Eva, who is married to basketball player Tony Parker has recently denied reports she was pregnant with the couple's first child.

Tony said: 'She's not pregnant now if that's your question. I'm not thinking like that right now.'

Terrorist's daughter who grew up to be the face of a lingerie brand

The picture of her wielding a machine gun was one of the most infamous of the seventies, but now it is Patty Hearst's model daughter Lydia who is striking a memorable pose.

Newspaper heiress Patty became notorious after joining the American guerilla group that kidnapped her.

More than three decades later, her 23 year-old daughter has been named the face and body of lingerie designers Myla and appears in a series of provocative poses wearing satin and silk underwear.

Sitting pretty: Lydia was named Supermodel of the Year at the 'Fashion Oscars'

She started modeling four years ago and has since worked with leading photographers including Mario Testino and Mark Abrams.

In the past year her career has taken off most recently at the "Fashion Oscars", she was named "Supermodel of the Year".

Her ascent to stardom is a far cry from her mother's. In 1974, Patty Hearst then aged 19, was kidnapped by left-wing US guerrilla group the Symbionese Liberation Army from her family home in California.

Her captors initially demanded for the release of jailed members of their radical group, and later for the Hearst family to distribute £30 of food to every poor person in California.

Neither was carried out and Hearst later claimed that she was kept in a cupboard for months.

She shocked her family when she eventually joined the group and adopted the name Tania.

The image of her holding the gun caused controversy in the seventies. She was later arrested with other members of the SLA after a bank robbery.

Despite claiming that she was brainwashed, Hearst was sentenced to seven years in jail. President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence after two years and later Bill Clinton eventually bestowed a presidential pardon.

Hearst later married her former bodyguard Bernard Shaw in 1979. The couple are still married and have two grown up daughters.

Initially she tried her hand as an actress but most recently has made her name as a dog-breeder.

The Hearst family name is one of the best known in the US. Her grandfather – press baron William Randolph - built up one of the largest magazine and newspaper businesses in the world.

He was caricatured by Orson Welles in classic film Citizen Kane. Her father Randolph was valued at $1.8 billion shortly before his death in 2001 at the age of 85.

Luxury lingerie brand Myla was founded in 1999 and is now worth in excess of £25 million.

What if Bob Geldof, Vinnie Jones and Frankie Dettori could see you now, Claire King?

In her Emmerdale heyday, Claire King was famous for playing glamorous über bitch Kim Tate.

But nine years after leaving the Dales, it appears the 45-year-old actress was having an off-day from her usual sleek appearance after she was spotted in London yesterday.

Pulling an unflattering face, Claire looked a world away from the striking blonde who captured the attentions of famous men including Bob Geldof, Vinnie Jones and Frankie Dettori.

Now and then: Claire King pulls a face as she walks through the wind in London yesterday - and (right) as Kim Tate in 1999

Despite being dressed to the nines in a skin-tight black mini dress and high heels, a scowling Claire clearly wasn't feeling as glamorous as her outfit.

The actress soon realised the impracticality of her outfit as she was spotted struggling with a suitcase and other bags on the central London street.

After attracting the attention of eligible males in the eighties, it appeared age is finally catching up with the actress.

In her 2006 autobiography Confessions Of A Bad Girl, Claire caused a stir when she claimed she had an affair with Boomtown Rat Bob Geldof in the early 1980s, while his late wife Paula Yates was pregnant with Fifi Trixibelle.

Defending her colourful love life, King said, 'There have been many people in my life, some famous, some not so famous. It's not my fault that Bob Geldof happens to be one of the most high-profile celebrities in the world.

'To me he was always Geldof. I would have written about him whether he was famous or not. I'm not intending to cause any trouble - but I couldn't have left him out as he was one of the biggest loves of my life.'

In the book, the former Bad Girls star also kissed and told on jockey Frankie Dettori and actor Vinnie Jones.

Rod Stewart's girl helps Rhys Ifans get over Sienna Miller...

Rhys Ifans looked like a broken man for weeks after his split Sienna Miller, but the Welsh actor has a spring back in his step - and a new blonde on his arm.
