We never covered these photos of Minka Kelly attending the Jenny Packham event at New York Fashion Week last month, so here they are. Minka looks great in red, and while I think that nude pumps have always been a horrific trend, the dress is pretty fantastic, but I’m very partial to red in general. Please though — even if you don’t like Minka, take it easy on her in the comments because she catches a lot of hell here. Yes, Minka might give off the slight air of eau de famewhore, but she really doesn’t seem like a bad person. Above all, please don’t make any “cankle” remarks. Nobody can do much (if anything at all) about the size of their ankles regardless of weight or fitness, and those sorts of remarks are nothing but catty and rude. I don’t mind Minka all that much. She seems kind of vacant, but that’s not unusual in Hollywood, and her cute booty should be more than enough to satisfy Chris Evan’s self-proclaimed ass fetish, right?
For those of you who don’t like the Minka and Chris Evans pairing though, there might be hope on the horizon. A story in this week’s Star brings us details about how Minka’s friends are not crazy about Chris at all and are all like, “Chris is a playboy!” because he’s taken to hanging out with Hugh Hefner and sons. I wonder if he’s wearing those douchey sunglasses while visiting the Playboy Mansion? Ugh, I don’t know why anyone would hang out at that place, but here’s the story:
Minka Kelly and Chris Evans are giving their romance another shot, but they have one big obstacle — her friends! A source tells Star that Minka’s pals think The Avengers star Chris, 31, has an out-of-control ego, partying all night instead of spending time with Minka, 32. Chris has been frequenting parties at the Playboy Mansion, where he’s become close friends with Hugh Hefner and his sons. “Minka’s friends think it’s just a matter of time before he cheats on her,” the insider says. Minka, whose three-year relationship with Derek Jeter ended in heartbreak last year, is wary of Chris playing her. But her chemistry with him trumps her friends’ doubts, the tipster says. “Minka claism that she and Chris have such amazing sex, she can’t stay away from him!”

A lot of you thought that those recent photos of Chris and Minka kissing in public demonstrated that he was far more into her than vice versa. But then we heard that Chris was hanging with a hot blonde at a bar while he and Minka were supposedly already rekindling their romance, so who knows? I’d like to think that Minka was ready to date a gentleman after putting up with Derek Jeter’s shenanigans for three years, but Chris may very well not be the gentleman we all hoped he would be if he’s hanging out at Hugh Hefner’s place. Yuck, indeed.
