It was only a matter of time before Michael Jackson's stunning daughter Paris Jackson launched a fashion line, became a model, a singer or started acting. Well, the time is now. We hear the 13-year-old has landed a starring role as the heroine in Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys, based on a young adult book series by Dennis H. Christen about a dolphin, a dragonfly, a jellyfish and lots of magic spells Paris's grandmother Katherine Jackson wanted her to wait until she was 18 to start a career. But apparently performing is in her blood.

Wanna get into Mario Lopez's underwear? Now you can. No Calvin Klein ads for this popular Extra host. He decided to do his own three level M underwear line: basics for Elementary, dressier pieces in Atelier and athletic undies for Play. It's all a load of briefs, trunks, tees, tanks, knickers, singlets and long johns. Fabrics include cotton-polyester-spandex blends, cotton-Modal and antibacterial poly mesh for the athletic pieces. Colors run the gamut from basic black, white and gray to purple, army green and red. And there's even a patented “M” (for Mario) fly.

“It’s smart, sexy and masculine,” says Lopez, who (natch) models the line, adding that his underwear "goes from the boardroom to the bedroom and everywhere in between.”

Anna Nicole Smith naked, pregnant and painted gold? At first we thought this must be a joke. But sadly, no. Turns out the troubled model shot these ads for an internet casino GoldenPalace.com shortly after the 2006 overdose death of her son Daniel. The photos -- inspired by Shirley Eaton's appearance in the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger -- were to launch an exclusive "Anna Nicole" slot machine. But before they could be released, she died of a drug overdose in 2007.

"As big fans of Anna Nicole, we felt a collaborative effort would be mutually beneficial," a company spokesman has said. "Unfortunately, the tragic events that followed so closely after the photo shoot proved to be overwhelming for the starlet. Out of respect for her and her family, the campaign was immediately shelved."

According to Golden Palace.com, the golden-girl photo shoot was all Anna Nicole's idea. "Like her persona, she wanted to capture the moment by doing something outrageous, memorable, and fun," the spokesperson said.The company hopes that by now releasing the photos, they are paying homage to the starlet's "free spirit and zany sense of humour that captured a worldwide audience and countless devoted fans." Or just shamelessly getting publicity for their online casino? You decide after you check out the photos here.

We hear that four Los Angeles-based contemporary designers Geren Lockhart, Rachel Pally, Cynthia Vincent and Karen Zambos are getting ready to broaden their horizons with lower-priced collections for QVC this spring. Congrats to them all!

Oscar de la Renta has dipped into kiddy clothes with limited editions for charitable causes. But he's getting serious with a new kid-centric clothing line.  None too soon. Super Stylist Rachel Zoe has plans for a boy's line. Stella McCartney, Fendi and Gucci are already in the children’s market. And Victoria Beckham -- whose baby girl Harper Seven Beckham has already been spotted in Chloé and Stella McCartney -- is also considering designing a children's line. Don't look for Oscar taffeta evening gowns for girls. Wordis that line is for parents who 'want their children to look like children.' How refreshing! A capsule collection will hit Bergdorf Goodman and Harrods, and some Oscar boutiques this spring.
