Jessica Simpson put on a form-fitting LBD and left her hotel with Eric Johnson yesterday on their way to her fan event at Macy's Herald Square. She spent the evening meeting and greeting fans who shopped her newest lines, especially the denim, which she twittered pictures of women happily wearing. Jessica's NYFW duties included playing guest judge at the Project Runway show, and she's had her own stylish events to tend to away from the Lincoln Center tents. The Jessica Simpson Collection was on full display, as was her cute chemistry with Eric, when she styled her best friends last week. Jessica kept her blond locks pulled back amid rumors she had a falling out with Ken Paves, though she's excited to share sweet moments with the current main man in her life. They kept the good times rolling after her press duties were over, and Jess changed into another tight number to celebrate Eric's birthday at the clubs Avenue and Lavo.

Johnny Depp and good friend Keith Richards were a matching pair in fedoras leaving dinner in London last night. Depp is in the UK straight from a few days filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in Puerto Rico with his newly revealed-to-be-pregnant costar Penelope Cruz. His summer working on Pirates looked a lot like vacation as he hit the beach in LA and relaxed with his bikini-clad lady Vanessa Paradis when on location in Hawaii. His last role also provided a luxurious locale when he and Angelina shot The Tourist in Venice. We finally got the first trailer for their sexy thriller, which hits theaters before we know it on Dec. 10.

The True Blood finale may have had disappointing moments, but season three was hot as ever thanks in no small part to sexy Joe Manganiello.

Angelina Jolie, Shiloh, and Zahara touched down in London this morning, coming off the long flight from Los Angeles. The trio were also hand in hand at LAX last night on their way to their adventure. Shiloh's latest expression of her "Montenegro style" included unlaced combat boots to go with her stuffed-animal backpack, while Zahara looked too cute in her Mary Janes and yellow cardigan. Angelina has been piling on the new movie projects this Summer, most of which will showcase her dramatic side rather than gun-slinging skills. Still, she's dominating BuzzSugar's Kickass Female Character Bracket as her Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, Fox from Wanted, and Jane from Mr. and Mrs. Smith are all still in competition! Her next badass film is just around the corner since the trailer for The Tourist was just released, and Angelina and Johnny Depp look smoking hot in the upcoming thriller.
Ryan Reynolds was the man of the hour at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of Buried last night. The movie, which takes place entirely inside a box where Ryan is trapped, was among Buzz's favorites at Sundance and is gaining more glowing reviews. Ryan and Scarlett Johansson are coming up on their second wedding anniversary later this month, though in keeping with their private nature he brought his mom Tammy as a date instead. Ryan is among the many hot guys stopping through Canada and the well-dressed actor has more promotional appearances ahead before Buried's Sept. 24 release. He gave us a peek at his sensitive heart, charming sense of humor, and amazing abs on the October cover of GQ, but that's not all he has going for him. Ryan is adding TV comedy producer to his ever-growing resume.

Even historic Fenway Park got red carpet ready for the Boston premiere of Ben Affleck's second directorial project, The Town, on the Red Sox home field last night. Ben had the support of his cast, along with his friend, and fellow Beantown native, Matt Damon. While the stars of the film were dressed up, Matt and pregnant Luciana looked ready for a ballgame in jeans. Blake Lively's boyfriend Penn Badgley joined her for the journey up from NY after Regis and Kelly yesterday morning. Jon Hamm also had his partner Jennifer Westfeldt on his arm, while Jeremy Renner and Rebecca Hall were solo. Ben's wife Jennifer Garner is home in LA with their daughters, though she stopped by TIFF with him last weekend. Ben recently spoke about what it means to make Boston films, saying, "Boston is a place that — and I was the same way, living there — that likes to see itself reflected, likes its own, likes to see a reflection of its values. New York doesn’t so much care about a New York movie. . . But Boston knows. Boston knows if you’re from there. . . It means something to them."

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson stepped out of their hotel in NYC yesterday. The two are back in the city after spending most of last week there, but taking off on Friday and enjoying an antiquing adventure elsewhere. She's promoting her new denim line with a fan event at Macy's tonight, and we got an inside look at the line when she styled her closest pals. Eric has become Jessica's constant companion over the past months, while she reportedly had a falling out with Ken Paves. Hopefully, the longtime best friends will patch things up and until then, she seems very happy with her guy. Some of you worry Jess is putting herself out there too much with her frequent romantic twitpics, though she has never been one to keep her emotions in and so far their love is still heating up as the Summer cools down.
Jennifer Aniston cracked a smile as she carried her salad on the set of Wanderlust in Atlanta on Monday. She's been in Georgia filming the dramatic movie for a few weeks and the Southern heat looks like it's treating her perfectly sun-kissed body well. While Jennifer spends time far away from LA, rumors about her love life are going strong. Her date with Cougar Town's Josh Hopkins was apparently just as friends, but there are reports that she's involved with Lindsay Lohan's ex Harry Morton. There's also the usual John Mayer stories, the latest being that they met up when his tour swung through Atlanta though he adamantly denied a rekindled romance last month. Whatever the case, Jennifer seems happy to be hard at work and we're excited to see her on the season premiere of Cougar Town one week from tonight!
Angelina Jolie held hands with Shiloh and Zahara as they made their way through LAX this evening to catch a flight out of town. Angelina's outing was perfectly timed as we got a first glimpse at her and Johnny Depp in The Tourist. Check out the brief teaser after the jump and stay tuned tomorrow on Buzz for the whole trailer! Brad Pitt is still finishing up work on Moneyball in LA while Angelina has been filling up her schedule with new movie projects and her philanthropic adventures as the UN goodwill ambassador. Angelina came under fire last week for a CNN interview in which she said Brad is the only friend she talks to about her causes, but as usual the criticism doesn't seem to faze her as she and her older two daughters head off on their next adventure.
Jessica Simpson hasn't been shy about showing off her relationship with Eric Johnson since the couple went public during a PDA-filled birthday trip this Summer. He's been by her side for the past few months, playing the role of supportive boyfriend while Jess keeps up her busy schedule. We also got an insider glimpse of their sweet chemistry in NYC just last week. She's used her Twitter to proclaim her love for Eric with cute shots of romantic moments including the latest yesterday when she posted a photo and wrote, "I have a major crush on you." Eric seems happy to be a part of her life, so tell us what you think of Jessica's public postings — picture perfect or too personal?
Christina Applegate stuck to watching from the beach as her shirtless fiancé Martyn LeNoble tested out his surfing skills at the Surfrider Foundation's 5th annual celebrity expression session in Malibu on Saturday. It was her second philanthropic event of the weekend after attending Friday's Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon. Sam Trammell, who's come a long way in terms of career and hotness, stripped off his wetsuit to show off his abs after hitting the waves. The dramatic season three finale of True Blood aired last night and on it Sam's character took a turn for the dark side. Anthony Kiedis and One Tree Hill's Austin Nichols also tested the waters during the fun, athletic, shirtless guy-filled afternoon by the ocean.

Chelsea Handler played capable host at the 2010 MTV VMAs on Sunday in LA. After the handsome guys and fashionable women hit the white carpet they took their seats for a roller coaster of an evening. Eminem and surprise guest Rihanna were first to hit the stage, then Chelsea had Lindsay Lohan's help opening the show. Eminem left and flew back to NYC for his concerts with Jay-Z right after his performance, which meant he couldn't accept any of his awards. He and Lady Gaga were the big winners of the night, and check out the whole list on BuzzSugar. Justin Bieber of course had all the girls screaming with his outdoor performance while his mentor Usher showed off his amazing dance moves on stage. Taylor Swift's ballad about Kanye West was one of the most talked-about moments, and she went barefoot to contrast her D&G dress.
Chelsea got into a hot tub with the cast of Jersey Shore and emerged with a big fake pregnancy belly, but it was Cher's stomach-baring outfit that stole the show. Cher stepped out looking like a blast from the past to hand Video of the Year out to Lady Gaga. Katy Perry joined Nicki Minaj to present an award, during which Katy joked about meeting her fiance Russell Brand at the 2009 VMAs. Russell didn't accompany Katy this time around, though she brought him on her manicure. Kanye closed the show with his new anthem, "Runaway," in which he called for everyone to "raise a toast to the douche bags" implying that he is one of them after interrupting Taylor last year. Overall it was a fairly tame VMAs as the stars headed out to keep celebrating at all the afterparties.

Lindsay Lohan popped up in Chelsea Handler's VMA show opening tonight. She filmed the cameo before flying to NY to be with her family instead of joining in the white carpet fun. In the sketch, Lindsay poked fun at her damaged reputation, turning the tables and calling out an alcohol monitor, anklet-wearing Chelsea for being drunk on the job. Check out the clip and tell us — did you think it was hilarious or not so much?
Kanye West took a totally different route than Taylor Swift with his VMAs performance tonight. She sang a powerful ballad, which is getting a mixed response, while Kanye surprised the crowd with an over-the-top anthem. He acknowledged his own mistakes by raising a "toast to the douche bags" and rapping about his bad behavior with women. While it's an unconventional apology at best, he did say he recently wrote a song for Taylor Swift in apology. Whether or not this track is directly about last year's VMA incident tell us what you think about Kanye's "Runaway" — love it or over it?
