PARIS -- Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Ciara and Lily Collins were among the starry crowd at the Givenchy show Sunday night at Paris Fashion Week, where designer Riccardo Tisci installed a five-car pileup for a runway centerpiece, complete with a wrecked Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz, and set the show to a live tribal drum beat, courtesy of a group of musicians in the rafters.

Rex Ryan is OK. No one was injured in the three-car pileup that allegedly started when the New York Jets coach's Ford Mustang collided with another vehicle in Bethlehem, Pa., last week. Obviously that is wonderful news and by far the most important aspect of this story. But I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to say this to Ryan: Come on, man! We all know that you are your own man, march to your own drummer and all that. There's the whole potty-mouth thing, the boastful predictions, the ridiculous tattoo, the infuriating loyalty to a struggling quarterback an entire city wants benched, and on and on. We get it -- you're one cool dude.
