Just when you thought the recession had put an end to champagne-popping, booty-shaking club videos, Hollywood heavy-hitters Jake Gyllenhaal and Ron Howard pull up in luxury cars and step into the club in Jamie Foxx’s latest video “Blame It.”

Foxx teams up with T-Pain to bring yet another grinding-in-the-club video and pulls award-winning actors Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Forest Whitaker, Academy-Award winning director Ron Howard and even super producer Quincy Jones along for the ride.

Look real close and you’ll also catch a glimpse of Morris Chestnut, Bill Bellamy, Cedric the Entertainer, Foxx’s sister, and a dancing panda in a suit!

Celebrity Stylist Reveals Latest Muse: Forest Whitaker’s Daughter

Celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch, who has styled everyone from Halle Berry to Beyoncé, writes in his column for ABC News that Forest Whitaker’s oldest daughter, Autumn, is “my my newest protégé at 16.”

Bloch, whose “BFF and traveling buddy” is Whitaker’s 36-year-old wife Keisha, says Autumn “doesn’t fall far from the tree!” The in-demand stylist accompanied the Whitakers and Autumn to Paris during Couture Fashion Week, where Keisha was “thrilled at the idea of seeing fashion to the umpteenth degree.”

“I think there has to be a happy middle ground between couture and ready-to-wear,” Keisha, who Bloch says is “one of the few who actually wears couture,” says of her fashion philosophy. “In fashion, there are definitely those statement moments and other times where classic chic and subtle work best.”

Bloch writes, “I’m happy to say I had a part in one of those statement moments, when I dressed Keisha for the 2006 Oscars. The buttercup yellow bias-draped Georges Chakra [pictured with Bloch and the Whitakers] sheath she wore the year her husband Forest won for best actor helped launch the couturier’s successful foray into red carpet dressing.”
