Although the two walked out together, Britz and her Yeti fur jacket took off for another destination -- while Miss P hopped into her car, put on makeup ... and then ducked back into the party!
Just minutes before it turned Midnight -- officially making it Britney's birthday, Paris either pulled out of popping bubbly with the popwreck, or just wanted to steal some of her spotlight! Either way, happy 26th pal!
BritBrit might feel a little better about the situation, after learning that the blonde bobbed heiress jumped into the wrong SUV earlier in the weekend.
Jacko Turns Eco-Crazy
Michael Jackson has lost the glitz and the glamor -- goodbye limos, hello Prius.
Jacko went shopping at the Sharper Image in Bev Hills Friday, and left in a chauffeur-driven Prius that looked as if it were covered in bird poop. But Michael wouldn't suffer such an indignity -- they were actually leaves.
It appears that Jacko has found affection for another new mom -- Mother Earth.
Eva Longoria -- Desperate to Spend
Eva Longoria could singlehandedly keep New York City's economy afloat with her rampant shopping.
The currently unemployed "Desperate Housewife" made her rounds all around the island, bagging a truckload of loot at Coach and then some more at the Solstice store at Time Warner Center. Then she made her way to Armani Exchange -- the same one where LiLo did some damage on Black Friday -- and pounded the plastic even more.
From Brit to Liza, Fur Flies for Femmes
Looks like some celebs still aren't hiding from wearing a dead animal -- in the name of fashion.
Even as the anti-fur movement gets more vociferous, TMZ -- in just one weekend -- spotted Britney Spears, Liza Minnelli, Eve, Sharon Stone and even Madonna fur-nished with all manner of fur-ish coats. We're told that Britney proudly took her shagerrific (and very real fur) coat at her birthday party in Bel Air.
PETA, as ever, took Liza to task for her outerwear, telling TMZ in a statement that it "hopes that Liza, who abstained from fur for years, gets back on the wagon of compassion." As for Sharon Stone, the anti-fur brigade was less charitable, saying, "Put your fur coat away, Sharon."
Reps for Eve, Sharon Stone, Liza and Madonna haven't yet gotten back to us about the provenance of their clients' coats.
One notable exception -- Sarah Jessica Parker, whose Star Wars-esque fur coat, we're informed, is fake.
