Nobody really dresses up for Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards, because whether they are entertainer, presenter or honoree, they know they are likely to be wearing a coat of slime by the end of the evening. Among those slimed at this year's event on Saturday were Pitbull, Sandra Bullock, Kristen Stewart (picking up a coat of green goo when she hugged Bullock) and Neil Patrick Harris. [Los Angeles Times] Selena Gomez, who picked up the award for favorite television actress, managed to avoid the goo. She looked summery in a sheer blue top and white shorts by Oscar de la Renta, Gucci heels and a Diane von Furstenberg bag. [Just Jared Jr.]

The election is just days away, and for political junkies, it's a nail-biter. "I'm a wreck," said former Clinton White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers, standing near the bar at the book party for "Vanity Fair's Hollywood" in Los Feliz the other night.
