While filming the upcoming Into the Blue, Jessica Alba is on location in the Bahamas with fellow hotties Paul Walker (2 Fast 2 Furious) and Josh Brolin (of TV’s Mister Sterling). Not a bad gig – but how is a young starlet to protect her delicate skin from the ravages of the sun? Alba had her makeup artist, Garret Gervais, order her Fresh’s Creme Ancienne, a moisturizer for the face and body that goes for $250 for 3.5 oz., a source tells us. Fresh sent her the cream and a bag full of free products.
SPEAKING OF FREE STUFF…
Looks like the accessory for the moment this spring will be the Floraine bag from the Elliott Lucca collection (by designers Mark Talucci and Todd Elliott), if the swag-fest backstage at the Grammys was any indication. Justin Timberlake chose a cognac-colored hue for girlfriend Cameron Diaz, Sharon Osbourne scooped up a black one, and Amber Tamblyn and Alicia Keys both preferred green. And since one just can’t have enough free stuff, Timberlake and Dave Matthews each also picked up digital cameras and a cordless mouse from Logitech.
STANDING UP FOR DAD
Ozzy Osbourne, Godlike Genius? Well, yes, according to veteran British music magazine New Musical Express. MTV’s favorite dad, who took the top honor at the magazine’s award show, was ill and couldn’t attend the ceremony, held at London’s Hammersmith Palais, so he sent daughter Kelly in his place. Kelly, wearing a black bustier and chocolate-colored satin skirt, collected NME’s gong statuette on her dad’s behalf and said: “Ever since (Ozzy) heard he had won this award, he’s been wandering around the house with a big smile on his face, so thank you.” The young Osbourne told us she really came to the show to see NME’s Rock & Roll Man of the Year winner, Har Mar Superstar.
