It took artists six months to dupe Janet Jackson—nope, that's not Michael—but the singer finally met her match, a waxwork body double based on a pose from her 1989 album Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814, at London's Rock Circus. Her latest CD, The Velvet Rope, is due in stores Oct. 7.
Photographer, shoot thyself! Shunned by paparazzi these days, and not minding a bit, George Clooney smiled (faintly) for a fan's camera at Planet Hollywood in Manhattan. The ER star was making the rounds to promote his new thriller The Peacemaker and drop off some movie memorabilia.

The moment seemed right for sibling rivalry when Jessica Lange (left) and Michelle Pfeiffer, who play feuding sisters in the new drama A Thousand Acres, blonded happily for an off-screen reunion at the movie's Beverly Hills premiere.
Frasier's David Hyde Pierce and Coach's Shelley Fabares put their best feet—their only feet, in fact—forward to mark the path of the upcoming Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk 1997 in L.A. Both have a personal interest: Fabares's mother suffered from Alzheimer's, as did Pierce's grandfather.
Two-time Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman obviously didn't deem himself worthy of honoree John Travolta, his costar in the forthcoming drama Mad City, while presenting him with this year's American Cinematheque Award in L.A. Also on hand were singer Garth Brooks (rear left), who performed, and Jay Leno, who hosted.
Either soap stud Kristoff St. John of The Young and the Restless meant to take the under out of underwear or he just got dressed in a hurry for his brief appearance at the BVD Extreme Bowling party in L.A.
