Suri Cruise debuts

New York - With a cherubic face and a shock of dark hair, Suri Cruise - subject of the world's most anticipated baby photo - made her debut Wednesday on the cover of Vanity Fair.

The magazine's 22-page spread of 4 1/2-month-old Suri and her famous parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, includes photos taken by Annie Leibovitz for the October issue, on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles and nationwide on Sept. 12.

Born April 18, Suri had not previously appeared in any published photos, prompting some public speculation about her very existence.

Leading up to the frenzy over the photos, "We were just living our lives, being a family," Cruise says. "Actually, we were taking our own photos and always planned to release those at the right time."

Looking good, doing good

New York - Lisa Marie Presley, Debbie Harry, Eve and Dita Von Teese are the newest crop of unlikely makeup models in MAC Cosmetics' Viva Glam ad campaign.

It's not just the spokesmodels who are unusual, it's also the product they promote: 100 percent of the sales of Viva Glam lipsticks and lip glosses are donated to HIV and AIDS programs, including treatment, education and daily necessities.

Presley said she agreed to participate in the campaign because of its fundraising efforts.

"MAC is actually, honestly, really true blue about its charity," the 38-year-old singer - and daughter of Elvis Presley - told The Associated Press in a recent phone interview.

"You can see it making headway. They've raised $70 million that's been used incredibly well. It's not a campaign full of fluff, and I'm not a fluff person."

Custody case continues

Los Angeles - Michael Jackson must pay $60,000 in attorney fees for his ex-wife as she pursues a custody case against the pop superstar, a judge ordered Wednesday.

Superior Court Judge Robert A. Schnider gave the entertainer until Sept. 28 to meet the order. He did not rule on whether to grant Deborah Rowe visitation rights to the couple's children, Prince Michael and Paris.

Jackson and Rowe did not attend the hearing.

Rowe, a former nurse for Jackson's dermatologist, married him in 1996 but filed for divorce in 1999 and later gave up custody rights. She asked a judge to reinstate them in 2003 after Jackson had been arrested on child molestation charges.

He was acquitted last year and now lives in Bahrain.

Jackson also has a third child, Prince Michael II. The boy's mother has never been identified.
