ANNA NICOLE SMITH told Larry King last week that she is 27. She also said that her son is 16 and that she was 17 when he was born. With luck, her math skills will improve when she receives the $88 million she was awarded in March from the estate of her late husband, oil tycoon Howard Marshall. If not, starting in August, viewers can watch her squander the cash when the E! channel airs a reality series of her life. E! says it had the idea before The Osbournes (though that show's success probably sped up production). Smith's once sybaritic ways have abated since Marshall died at age 90 in 1995 and she gave up modeling to become a full-time litigant, battling his sons over the money. But she told King she wants more children and hopes to conceive via a one-night stand. Let's see the Osbournes top that.
THE PERFECT BOND GIRL
The first Miss Russia to win the title of Miss Universe would impress both Tsar Nicholas and Comrade Khrushchev. OXANA FEDOROVA, crowned last week in Puerto Rico, trained at the Russian police academy and boasts among her talents hand-to-hand combat and the ability to assemble a Kalashnikov rifle in a matter of seconds. Her victory caused typically gloomy Russian souls to bloom with pride, with her triumph leading all national newscasts. One report aired snippets from her school records, including such praise as "Physically in good condition. Knows the rules for maintaining and firing weapons. Knows how to keep state secrets." Proving that Fedorova is also heir to her country's imperial past, she favors luxurious evening wear and exhibited during her victory walk a flair for moving gracefully while sporting a jewel-encrusted tiara.
For the role of Elektra in the upcoming film Daredevil, JENNIFER GARNER plays a wealthy student by day and an avenging ninja by night. Both personas sport great clothes, says Garner, currently shooting the movie while on hiatus from the TV show Alias. The outfit below is what she wears to "go out killing." Elektra is particularly keen to off Daredevil, played by Ben Affleck, and to do so, she employs pronged knives called sais, which she spent months training to use. "At first I was a danger to myself and everyone else," she says. "It was extremely cool, but next summer I'll probably be looking to do a comedy."
YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU'LL MEET
What, you may ask, is Olympic speed skater APOLO OHNO doing hanging out with THE CLINTONS? And why is he wearing his gold medals at the beach? Reasonable questions, and ones for which there are in fact answers. For its July issue, W magazine brought Ohno to the Dominican Republic where, serendipitously, the Clintons and Chelsea's boyfriend IAN KLAUS happened to be on vacation. When W asked them to pose together, the Clintons eagerly agreed. "They were in awe of Apolo, treating him like a celebrity," says W fashion director Joe Zee. In return, Ohno apparently made no snide comments about Bill's shirt.
