Meanwhile, Brittany Murphy took the whole Vogue association to the extreme, striking one pose then another, then another for the cameras.
"I’ve been doing this since I was two years old," she said. No one could stop her.

But the statuette, redesigned and sprouting a pair of shapely legs, proved more provocative. Steven Tyler called it an S&M Barbie, while Hugh Grant announced that receiving one left him "semi-aroused."
The award’s designer, Vanessa Beecroft, claimed she fashioned the statuette after her yoga instructor, but for her part, Karolina Kurkova, who won the Model of the Year, took all the credit.
"They copied my legs for the award," she told anyone who would listen. "Spaghetti legs!"
