This week, Londoners were treated to a gigantic billboard on which a naked Kelly Brooke illustrated how Reebok EasyTone sneakers will make anyone's ass look as good as hers. Seriously. That's all it takes. A pair of sneakers. And you'll have an ass as fine as Kelly's. Genetics are irrelevant.
So there was all this talk in June about Lindsay Lohan appearing nude in an ad campaign for her line of handbags. It seems that never happened but she did hook up with Marc Ecko for a series of ads promoting the designer's Cut & Sew Fall 2010 campaign.She'll appear in several videos for the brand as well.
Explaining the campaign, Ecko said he decided to use Lohan as a digital muse for the campaign which, among other things, he says is an homage to old James Bond posters.
The photoshoot took place May 7. TMZ images from the campaign.

Just how many Kardashian sisters are there? Well, it depends on which last name you want to go with because there's Jenners and there's Kardashians. But that's not what we're talking about. No. We're just letting you know 12-year-old Kylie Jenner will appear in an upcoming series of Sears commercials to promote the retailer's Crush Your Style - The Search for America's Top Style Crush contest. See Kylie explain it here.
And then if you want to switch gears a bit, check out her 14-year-old sister, Kendall, who, following her much older sisters, exposes plenty of cleavage in a photo shoot she did with photographer Nick Saglimbeni.
Does this sort of thing perpetuate the trend of kids growing up too quickly? Debate.

Oh wait, is that too many layers of stereotyping?
- Guys, why do all the work looking for a date when you can just sit back and let the women come to you?
- If you own a company, you can direct your own commercials. And that's just what Justin Timberlake did for his 901 Silver Tequila. The ad is dumb.

The fact Hollywood is even humoring Sylvester Stallone by making his The Expendables is shocking in and of itself. Of course, as these things go, it could be the biggest blockbuster of all time.
But the fact the film warranted the creation of Rambo: The Musical by the creators of Conan the Barbarian: The Musical is pretty impressive. Who knows how stupid or how brilliant the movie will be but this rendition of Rambo is a good one.
You have to hand it to Stallone though. Who thought a dude like him could create an Oscar winning film about a block-headed boxer. Or pull in 70 million 30 years later with the final chapter of his Rocky saga. To see what he can do with every big name action hero of the last thirty years, all together in one film, including Governor Schwarzenegger, will be intriguing to say the least.
Everyone has sex in the middle of a hardtop playground, right? Especially if you're not in school any more, you're a hard-bodied model and it's a Calvin Klein commercial. And if a guy named Fabien Baron directed you and Lara Stone was the object of desire, it's all perfectly plausible. Oh, and let's not forget the thousands of dollars you'll receive in exchange for a few scrapes and bruises suffered during the shoot.
Yea. It's a new commercial for Calvin Klein Jeans. And yea, there's nudity (brief). But it's art. So it's all good, right?

If you've ever watched Gossip Girl - come on, admit it, you know you have - you'd have witnessed the transformation of Jenny Humphrey (Little J) from innocent cutie to head bitch in charge of Constance Billard. In the real world, Jenny is Taylor Momsen and she's 16 so there's only so much drooling you're allowed to do before you fall into a certain category of sleaze ball.
That said, she looks good fronting Macy's new line of eighties-themed clothing, Material Girl, from the material girl herself, Madonna, and her daughter Lourdes. The line will hit stores August 3.
Previously, Momsen, well known for her provocative style of dress and her "badass" attitude has been the face of British retailer New Look. Here's a promotional video for the Material Girl line after the jump:
