Supermodel Naomi Campbell was all smiles when she turned up unexpectedly on the Dolce & Gabbana catwalk, a day after her much publicized sentencing on charges of "air rage."

One of the most amazing illusions in "Forrest Gump," a movie chock-full of special effects that opened Wednesday, has nothing to do with old newsreel footage--but with Gary Sinise playing a Vietnam veteran with both legs amputated.

A 300-pound man found floating in 54-degree waters two miles off Long Island was saved by his girth, doctors said. Robert Slutsky, 54, was rescued Monday morning dressed in a flannel shirt, T-shirt and boxer shorts. Officials told the Daily News that they have no idea how he got there. No boats were in sight, said fishermen who came to his rescue. He was in critical condition Wednesday. "He gave his name, but he remembers nothing of the event or how he got there," said Dr. Michael Bloch.

A Kansas burglar apparently likes to be clean -- but isn't very adept at clean getaways. Police in Wichita said a man apparently broke into a house Friday night to wash his clothes but fled in boxers, with his jeans still in the washing machine. Here's what happened: A woman reported that she returned home, found her basement laundry room in disarray and went upstairs to call her husband. That's when a man wearing only blue boxer shorts came upstairs, grabbed her purse and ran out the door.
