One year ago this week, Emeli Sandé’s first album entered the charts at number one. Twelve months on, Our Version Of Events is enjoying its 53rd consecutive week in the Top Ten – a record for a debut bettered only by The Beatles’ Please Please Me in 1963 – and the woman behind it is a household name.
The Scottish singer-songwriter crowned an exceptional year on Wednesday night by winning two Brits – best female and best album – while her debut was the only album to sell a million copies in Britain last year. She performed at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympic Games, while next month’s UK tour is a complete sell-out. Strangest of all, the 25-year-old managed to achieve all this without exploiting her sexuality or getting embroiled in a celebrity scandal.
An old-fashioned pop star, she has kept her private life to herself.
With Sandé, it is all about the songs, a virtue emphasized by this week’s release of her first live album. Recorded last November, Live At The Royal Albert Hall is a CD and DVD double-pack that reiterates the qualities that have made the singer pop royalty. It features hits such as Heaven and Next To Me, and wraps her soulful, heart-stopping voice in atmospheric strings and seductive rhythms.With intimate, piano-led songs her forte, the centerpieces are the ballads Clown and River, back-to-back tracks that are simultaneously sad and uplifting. On Clown, she admits to being a novice pianist, but her performance is still mesmerizing.
Other highlights include a haunting take on the Cup Final hymn Abide With Me (as sung at the Olympics opening ceremony) and a note-faithful cover of Nina Simone’s I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free.
‘From the age of eight, she’s been my inspiration,’ says Emeli.
As live albums go, it isn’t perfect. Emeli has the soulful voice and songwriting abilities of Simone, but she has yet to acquire the stagecraft that is a hallmark of her other great influence, Alicia Keys. While the New Yorker will fall back on her inner showgirl when she plays a big venue, the naturally reserved Sandé can seem overwhelmed by the occasion.
‘Wow, I’m playing the Royal Albert Hall,’ she says. ‘This is my wildest dream come true — and it’s all happened so quickly.’
Her fans, however, react warmly to her girl-next-door charm, especially when she touchingly dedicates songs to her watching mum, dad and sister Lucy. If the tender, reflective nature of Sandé’s material threatens to make this album slightly one-paced, the singer is inspired in her choices of collaborators, and guest appearances by rapper Professor Green (on Read All About It) and singer Labrinth (on Beneath Your Beautiful) ensure that the energy levels soar at the end of the evening.
Beyond her undoubted artistry, though, what has made Sandé such a star?
The thing that sticks out the most about the singer is how down to earth she still is. In an era of TV-created idols, she offers something different:
The daughter of a Zambian father, Joel, who moved to Britain on a scholarship and now teaches engineering, and an English mother, Diane, from Cumbria, she was raised in a small, conservative village in the Aberdeenshire countryside.
From there, she went not to stage school but the University of Glasgow, where she completed a medical degree, specialising in Clinical Neuroscience.
In the final year of her studies, she spent time in hospital wards meeting patients with spinal injuries and schizophrenia. Had she not taken up music, she would now be a qualified junior doctor.
‘My intention was always to become a doctor,’ she said ‘I specialized in neurology, and I found medicine a real challenge. ‘It was something that was going to stretch me, because I wasn’t just stuck in a research laboratory.’
‘I was in a hospital, and I got to see people at their most vulnerable. Ultimately, though, I wanted to try music.’
There is a touch of steel to Sandé, too, along with the strong work ethic that is a prerequisite for any modern pop star. The singer concedes she was ‘headstrong’ as a child, and, in her teens, she declined a record deal after winning a Radio 1 talent contest, preferring to cut her musical teeth by writing hits for Cheryl Cole and Susan Boyle.
Her approach has won her the admiration of her peers. Jay-Z praised her ‘unique sound’, Rihanna asked her to write a song for her, and Dido, when I interviewed her recently, was quick to acknowledge a singer she sees as a kindred spirit, not least for the fact that Sandé, like Dido.
Even amidst the prying eyes of the paparazzi, she managed to get married to marine biologist Adam Gouraguine in a very private ceremony.
‘I think she’s brilliant,’ Dido told me. ‘It’s voices that resonate with me, and I love hers. She’s the most exciting female artist of the moment. She never gets boring, either, because I don’t know anything about her private life, which is great.’
Sandé herself is already looking ahead, with this live set previewing two songs from her forthcoming second album. The first, Enough, is a big, flowing piano ballad. The second, Pluto, looks more to the Massive Attack-style strings of her debut single Heaven. On the evidence of these, the stunning success of Our Version Of Events is no fluke.
‘You have a duty to be a positive role model, especially when some of your fans are young girls,’ she says. ‘You get 13- and 14-year-olds thinking they have to dress a certain way to get on.
But my inspirations were Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone. With them, the music always came first.’
President Obama played golf with Tiger Woods on Sunday as he took a break from work during President’s Day weekend. The unexpected golf pairing came as the President enjoys a ‘boy’s weekend’ away from his wife and daughters, making his decision to spend the afternoon with one of the world’s most notorious philanderers even more pointed.
Though it would be an intimidating round – undoubtedly for both parties – Mr Obama warmed up on Saturday by playing with Woods’ former coach Butch Harmon. After getting pointers from Harmon, Mr Obama must have been feeling good about his game as he played with the Masters’ Champion and Jim Crane, who owns The Floridian Yacht and Golf Club where they were seen playing.
Golf Digest reporter Tim Rosaforte reported that the Commander-in-Chief reported to the club’s driving range at around 11am as he warmed up for the ‘historic’ round with Woods and Crane. No photos of the trio have been released and the president’s normal pool reporter was barred from covering the event, but gossip is flying at the country club as members tried their best to get an insight into how the round was going.

The Obama girls, shadowed by security, enjoyed the hospitality of wealthy Democratic donors Jim and Paula Crown – and angered other visitors by shutting airspace so they could land their plane. Their trip came as President Obama golfed with Tiger Woods in Florida – a day out that was kept under wraps from the public and the media despite the taxpayer footing much of the massive bill.
In Aspen, Michelle, Sasha and Malia, as well as a few friends, headed to the slopes for all-day private lessons with numerous pro skiers from the Ski and Snowboard School of Aspen, the New York Post revealed. All-day courses with the school cost between $107 and $200 per person, but the White House said the First Family was picking up the tab.
‘The first lady and the Obama daughters are on a private family trip to Colorado,’ a spokesperson said. ‘Personal expenses are being paid for by the Obamas.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Marking a month since Barack Obama officially embarked on his second term as President, a selection of candid shots from his inauguration weekend have been released. From Michelle’s new bangs and her stunning inaugural gown to Malia and Sasha’s grown-up looks the intimate photos offer an insight into how the First Family geared up for festivities.
The pictures, some of which have never been seen before, were selected by official White House photographer Pete Souza and uploaded on to Flickr last week. Highlights include a view inside the presidential limousine as Mr Obama and his wife journey through crowds gathered at the inaugural parade in Washington D.C.. The couple are seen laughing in the back seat as they sit side-by-side wrapped up in their winter coats. Another shot captures the President, 51, in a moment of prayer during a special worship service at St. John’s Episcopal Church, which kicked off inauguration day. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The White House has unveiled a new official portrait of Michelle Obama to mark her second term as First Lady. The photograph, shot on February 12th by White House photographer Chuck Kennedy in the Green Room of the White House, shows her with the new bangs she debuted last month on her 49th birthday.
And unlike the last official photo, in which she proudly bared those toned upper arms she is so famous for, this time she wears a sleeved black-and-navy dress by Reed Krakoff. She has also toned down her jewelry – instead of the double strand of pearls there is a single one. Her barely-seen earrings, wedding and engagement rings are the only other accessories.
Mrs Obama’s make-up has definitely been given an update though – while the last portrait was widely-praised when it was released in February 2009, the pearlescent finish of the lipstick now looks dated. Her new photo shows her sporting a bright pink gloss which looks softer and more modern. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The White House is circulating a draft immigration bill that would create a new visa for illegal immigrants living in the United States and allow them to become legal permanent residents within eight years, according to a report published online Saturday by USA Today.
President Barack Obama’s bill would create a ‘Lawful Prospective Immigrant’ visa for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. The bill includes more security funding and requires business owners to adopt a system for verifying the immigration status of new hires within four years, the newspaper said. In response to early criticisms of the leaked proposal, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said on Sunday that Obama meant for the draft proposal to be a back-up plan in case the bipartisan immigration teams in Congress are unable to come up with a bill fast enough.
‘We’ve not proposed anything to Capitol Hill yet,’ McDonough said on ABC’s ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos.‘ ‘We’ve got a bill, we’re doing exactly what the president said we would do last month in Las Vegas, which is we’re preparing. We’re going to be ready.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Pictures finally appeared of President Obama on Monday evening as he headed home to Washington after a relaxing golf weekend which was kept heavily under wraps. The President was on the course on Monday for the third and final day of a Florida vacation with departing US Trade Representative Ron Kirk, the president’s Chicago pal Eric Whitaker and White House aide Marvin Nicholson.
The President had enjoyed a round of golf with Tiger Woods on Sunday – a fact that only emerged by chance after media were banned from attending the event. The traveling pool of journalists who follow the President’s every move were reportedly furious after being shut out of his round of golf and not being allowed on to the club grounds. It has long been a White House tradition that pool reporters cover the President’s rounds of golf and even have the opportunity for a few questions on the course. The President waved after he jogged up the steps of Air Force One at Palm Beach International Airport while a White House aide heaved golf clubs and large bags on board.

The notorious philanderer and Mr. Obama played out a ‘boy’s weekend’ over the President’s Day weekend at the Floridian Yacht and Golf Club and Woods was quizzed at a press conference after a practice round at the WGC-Accenture Matchplay Championship in Arizona.
‘He’s got amazing touch,’ said Woods. ‘He can certainly chip and putt. If he ever spent — after these four years — spent more time playing the game of golf, I’m sure he could get to where he’s a pretty good stick.,’ said the world’s number two golfer somewhat diplomatically.
Asked if the president and Woods had squared up against each other over 18-holes, the 14-time major winner revealed that Mr. Obama had been his partner in a foursome against U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane.
‘He was my partner, and as I said, we won. Playing with Mr. President was pretty cool,’ Woods said. ‘He’s just a wonderful person to be around. We won.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

David Cameron is encouraging Barack Obama to leave his wife Michelle at home when he attends the G8 Summit in the UK this year. British sources say the Prime Minister wants the summit in June to be WAG-free to ensure leaders remain ‘focused’ on issues like tackling tax avoidance, without the distraction of having their wives and girlfriends in tow.
Diplomats have begun the delicate process of inquiring whether the spouses of the world’s most powerful individuals are happy to be left behind during one of the highlights of the global political calendar. It is being made clear that Samantha Cameron plans to break with G8 tradition and not host a separate program of activities for visiting wives. If the ploy is successful it means that the likes of Michelle Obama and Valerie Trierweiler, girlfriend of France’s Socialist President Francois Hollande, will not attend the summit, being held at the luxury Lough Erne resort in Northern Ireland.

Robin Roberts has returned to Good Morning America exactly five months after she underwent a bone marrow transplant in her battle against a rare blood disorder. The beloved host was given a raucous welcome by her fellow hosts – and there were even congratulatory messages from the Obamas, Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton and actor Bradley Cooper.
Roberts, who took a break from the show as she fought myelodysplastic syndrome, looked relaxed, healthy and proudly displayed her closely-cropped hair as she returned to the co-host’s chair.
‘Hi, it’s Robin, and I’ve been waiting 174 days to say this: Good morning, America!’ she said. ‘I am so full of gratitude. I share this morning, this day of celebration, with everyone.’
‘I keep pinching myself and I realise this is real,’ she said. ‘This is actually happening, and I don’t have my froggy slippers on, or do I?’
Her return, which had been promoted two weeks ago by ABC, was celebrated by the show’s fans as thousands sent well-wishes to Roberts on social networking sites and brandished signs across the country and outside the studio in Time Square. The Obamas also shared in the celebration, welcoming Roberts back with a video message
‘We just want you to know that the whole Obama family – we’ve been thinking about you and praying for you and rooting for you every step of the way,’ the first lady said. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

First Lady Michelle Obama showed off her dancing moves during her Friday appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Mrs Obama was a crowd favorite on the NBC comedy show and wasn’t afraid to get physical in front of the New York audience. While in the Big Apple she was also interviewed by Good Morning America host Robin Roberts and health guru Dr Oz, as part of the celebration for the 3 year anniversary of her Let’s Move! campaign to fight childhood obesity.
‘In honor of the first lady’s Let’s Move campaign, and to encourage parents everywhere to get up and get moving with their kids, Jimmy Fallon and Michelle Obama present the Evolution of Mom Dancing,’ the show said in a YouTube clip released on Friday before her appearance aired.

She’s currently four months pregnant with her first child, and has understandably hit some bumps on the road to discovering her maternity style. But Kim Kardashian on Friday was the epitome of chic as she made her way to Los Angeles International Airport. The 32-year-old reality star, who’s due in July, looked elegant in a billowing printed blouse, black leggings and her staple: stiletto boots.
‘On my way to Nigeria! Can’t wait!’ Kardashian tweeted to her 17.3 million followers earlier in the day.
For her 21-hour flight, Kim donned the loose-fitting polka-dot blouse and thigh-high boots. It was a major improvement for the E! star whose cleavage was worthy of a Russ Meyer movie earlier that morning at the gym. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Forget a birthday, it’s all about the birthweek as Aston Merrygold enjoyed another night out to celebrate his 25th. The JLS star partied with bandmates Marvin Humes, JB Gill, old friend, Olympic gymnast Louis Smith and some other local Essex faces at The Sugar Hut.
And as an extra special treat, Aston was presented with a birthday cake iced with a picture of himself and a microphone on it. Mick Norcross made sure to keep Aston and his part well lubricated, as well as putting in some face time with the birthday boy at his nightclub. But he wasn’t the only TOWIE star in the venue, with Joey Essex, Billie and Sam Faiers popping in to say hello.
Although the girly reality contingent were in the house – and a source claims that Sam was allegedly kicked out of it too – it was all about the boys with Aston tweeting earlier in the day, ‘Done done and done..

She isn’t known for throwing diva-like tantrums but Kendra Wilkinson could have won a gold medal for her recent hysterics. The former Playboy model was seen losing her cool as she trained in Los Angeles, California, for new American reality show Splash.
The 27-year-old was left fuming as she appeared to be screaming and shouting at her personal diving trainer Greg Louganis on Friday afternoon. The beautiful blonde was irate and furious over something and clearly wanted to make her point clear.
While Kendra was throwing her toys out of the pram Greg was remaining calm and never lost his cool. The gold medal winning Olympian simply sat back and took the tirade in his stride as an animated Kendra threw her arms out and gestured angrily. At least the reality television star looked good while being mad. The mother-of-one showed off her slender figure in a blue swimsuit and also wore a personalized pink bathrobe which had her name embroidered into the chest. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

One never knows what to expect from a Marc Jacobs fashion show. From the ready-to-wear to the start time, the designer always switches it up which is actually pretty refreshing in an industry where trend is queen. Has anyone ever presented their offerings twice? Well, leave it to Jacobs to break the mold.
He sends the models out first under the light of the set’s giant orb sun which casts a grey light over the designs and the runway, but doesn’t stop there (much to the excitement of buyers and editors) shooting out the looks again with full lights. There’s no way to deny the easy glamour of the season’s pieces, which appear as if a socialite just rolled out of bed.
Polished, retro collared blouses, high-waist briefs, pajama-inspired styling — the Marc Jacobs woman will be decadently dressed for Fall, yet very comfortable. Imagine that! Visit FashionBombDaily to view the full collection…
Chelsee Healey may have finally learned that sometimes less is more. The Waterloo Road actress looked much better than she normally does as she stepped out wearing less make-up than usual. Chelsee, 24, was out shopping in Manchester on Friday afternoon sporting her laid back look when she bumped into Marcus Collins.
The former X Factor runner-up was also in town doing rehearsals for his musical Hairspray and was extremely happy to see his friend. No doubt Collins would have complimented Healey on her more natural look as the two chatted away in the street. While Chelsee went with the minimal look for her face, her clothing was as loud as ever.
She teamed a black fur jacket with a pair of jeans and some leopard print fur lined brown boots. The former Strictly Come Dancing star had picked up a number of things during her shopping trip including something from Ann Summers and American Apparel. Despite having her hands filled with new items, however, seeing Marcus was the highlight of her day. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Looks like there’s not a club in town big enough to entertain both Chris Brown and Drake. According to TMZ, the two tried to party at the Playhouse Nightclub in Hollywood on Wednesday, but the Take Care singer was turned away because Chris already had a table.
The Don’t Wake Me Up singer was inside celebrating an anniversary party for the clothing brand Popular Demand, and the bouncers knew that Rihanna would be arriving later on. So when Drake showed up at the door around midnight, they respectfully asked him to leave, and he headed off to another bar without incident.
Brown and Drake have a tumultuous relationship, having been involved in a famous brawl at the New York City nightclub W.I.P. last summer where members of their entourage broke bottles and nearly destroyed the place. Last November police revealed they had no plans to file criminal charges over the incident after concluding their investigation. But the singers are now suing each other over the June 14 incident after French model Romain Julien claimed he sustained facial lacerations in the fight.Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

They call it the city of love, but for Selena Gomez, Paris is also the city to get over lost love with your girlfriends. It has been a tough few months for Selena after breaking up with long-term boyfriend Justin Bieber, but the star is getting some much needed girl time thanks to her new film, Spring Breakers.
The singer turned actress jetted into Paris on Saturday with best friend Ashley Benson and their fellow Eurasian co-star Vanessa Hudgens. While officially in town for the French premiere of the independent movie, it was clear that Selena was reaping the emotional benefits of working with her friend.
Despite the long flight, the 20-year-old smiled as she made her way through the crowd, holding on to the Pretty Little Liars actress’ hand.

She might be supermum, but she’ll leave the crime fighting to her son Louie. Sporting a fresh coat of super hero face paint, Sandra Bullock’s toddler gripped tight to his mum’s hand as the pair strolled around Beverly Hills on Friday.
The growing youngster looked excited to show off his red mask and yellow thunderbolt, a tribute to the comic book hero The Flash. Louis kept close to his Academy Award winning mum as he matched his make-up with a fierce snake tee and some camouflage pants. Sandra, who has been tapped as a presenter at next week’s Oscars, wore a feminine khaki blazer and a striped tee over black pencil jeans and matching leather boots.
The 48-year-old star adopted her son two years ago from New Orleans when he was a newborn and after her marriage to Jesse James collapsed. The Blind Side actress had said that adopting her son has changed her outlook on life.

She is about to welcome her first baby into the world with rapper Kanye West and they are currently planning to renovate a new $11m Bel Air home. And it appears that Kim Kardashian is offloading some of her other properties. The reality star was flattered when she recently sold her Beverly Hills mansion to a buyer who wanted all her fine furniture too.
Kim sold her 4,000-square-foot abode for just under $5 million, and the price included every piece of furnishing including couches, mirrors, coffee tables and even the rugs, according to TMZ. The 32-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star bought another house in a pricey neighborhood in January.
Kim apparently wanted a quick sale and didn’t bat an eyelash at seeing her top quality furniture go, even her beloved custom-built vanity dresser, all of it worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. She originally bought the Mediterranean home in 2010 for $4.8 million, so it’s not a stretch to guess that Kim lost money on the deal. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Now Chandra is helping to shed light on the condition, also known as cyclic vomiting syndrome, by serving as celebrity ambassador for the organisation CureMito.

She found fame as a blonde bombshell in Nineties cult film 2 Days In The Valley. And it appears Charlize Theron is anxious to get back to her lighter look following a recent stint as a brunette.
The 37-year-old was snapped with freshly dyed locks while out shopping with her mother and son on Saturday at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills. The South African beauty offered a peek of newly dyed platinum blonde hair under a white beanie as she made her way to her car. The Prometheus star shaved off her trademark flowing blonde locks for her role as Furiosa in Mad Max 4.
Once filming wrapped, her buzz cut started to show dark roots as it grew back, leading to speculation that the actress was in fact a natural brunette. But blonde must be where the Oscar winner feels most comfortable as she wasted no time in hitting the dye bottle. The former model looked stylishly casual as she spent a leisurely morning shopping with her mother Gerda and her baby son Jackson.

Kris Humphries is allegedly willing to risk his career over his divorce battle with Kim Kardashian. The Brooklyn Nets basketball player’s team is on track to score a place in the 2013 Playoffs, which run from April 20th to June 20th, and he is said to be willing to miss the games in order to face his estranged wife in court on May 6th.
A source close to the 28-year-old athlete, who is on a two-year contract worth $24 million, told gossip website TMZ.com that Kris has already decided he will skip the Playoffs if the trial, which could last two or three days, clashes with a game.
The sports star is keen to have their 72-day marriage annulled on the grounds of fraud, insisting Kim only married him for publicity on her show ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’, but was advised against the decision by his former attorney Marshall Weller. However, Mr. Waller has since quit the trial and Kris has hired out-of-state lawyer Lee Hutton to help on the case, but will need another Californian representative on board. Their split has been dragging on since October 2011. The former couple got engaged the previous May after just six months of dating. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Recognizing online video and only streamed on the net, the event may have not been Hollywood’s biggest but the former Buffy star made sure to look her best. The 32-year-old took to the red carpet in a unusual high-necked red and gold paisley patterned dress.
The dress – which was made of a shinny fabric – was tight from neck to waist and then flared out in a short ice skate-style skirt which showed off the star’s slender but toned legs. Letting the dress speak for itself, the brunette beauty wore no jewelry bar a simple ring and teamed it with patent black round-toe pumps.

They are on opposite sides of the country. But that doesn’t mean Coco can’t indulge in some racy banter with her husband Ice T, who turned 55 on Saturday, February 16. And the reality stars made it public as they shared photos of themselves on Twitter. Peepshow star Ice T was first as he posted a shirtless photo on Twitter showing him flexing his muscles in his living room.
Along with the photo, the rapper-turned-actor tweeted: ‘I’m 55 today. “I’ve been your age.. You’ve never been mine.. Pay Attention.”‘
An hour later Coco played the same game, with a particularly racy tweet. It showed her sitting on the edge of a couch in her dressing room while displaying her curvy figure in lacy blue brassiere and panties. Completing her skimpy outfit were a sparkly pair of beige fishnet stockings and beige platform high heels. Wearing a black and pink cap emblazoned with her name on front, Coco posed in a way that she obviously thought was seductive while holding a glass filled with candy.

Sandra Bullock’s little boy covered a lot of ground getting to Charlize Theron’s house. Tottering along and clasping his yellow toy truck, Sandra’s three-year-old tot Louis was the picture of cuteness.
Sandra stepped out on Sunday with Louis in tow to attend a party at pal Charlize’s home in posh Beverly Hills.

Breaking up with somebody is hard enough. But when your protective and outspoken sisters get involved, emotions are bound to end up overloading and causing more problems. That was exactly the case for Rob Kardashian on the latest episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami as his siblings tried to help him deal with his split from singer Rita Ora.
Kourtney, Kim and Khloe chimed in as Rob and Rita embarked on a Twitter war and tried to give him advice. They told Rob he needed to cut communication for a while.
Eldest sister Kourtney warned: ‘She’s the one that’s in the wrong but she’ll probably try to make it like you’re in the wrong.’
Kim shared her opinion: ‘Don’t post anything else. Everyone has problems,’ but Rob makes the point that he doesn’t want to leave it as it is because fans will think he has been spiteful.
‘I don’t want people to think I’m being a bitch,’ he shared.
Kim thinks being nasty is not the answer, sharing with the camera that: ‘Ever since Rob has broken up with his girlfriend he has been dating all these girls that I don’t think are his type.’
Then things turn serious when she calls her mother to spill details of the rude conversation they had. She told Kris Jenner about him asking if Kanye will do a song with his friend. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

It was a weekend of outdoor activities for Heidi Klum and her adorable brood as they made the most of California’s warm weather and hit the beach for a Sunday bike ride.
With her bodyguard turned boyfriend Martin Kristen by her side, the supermodel smiled her way through the perfect family Sunday on Santa Monica’s famous boardwalk. As she strolled along with her partner, her mother Erna pushed her youngest, three-year-old Lou, in the pram behind her while the other three children raced around on their bikes and scooters.
The boys, Johan, six, and Henry, seven, were quick to leave their family in search of adventure, but Leni, eight, stayed close to her mother hoping off her bike to stroll between Heidi and Martin. Los Angles is quickly leaving winter behind, but it seems the 39-year-old is not quite ready to shed her warmer clothes. For the family’s outing, the German stunner donned long black silk pants with a white print, a black T-shirt with large white polka dots and covered up with a long woolen coat and scarf.

She was one of the most high profile stars to grace the front rows of New York Fashion Week. But Zoe Saldana was clearly pining for her rescue dog Mugsy, as she rushed to pick him up from his sitter as soon as she touched down in LA on Sunday.
After a hectic few days dashing from show to show, the Star Trek actress looked happy to be back in her home town, dressing down in a baggy grey dress and going completely make-up free. Clearly one of her main priorities, Zoe made a beeline to her dog-sitter after arriving back in town, keen to get her hands on her pet pooch. Smiling as the little fella bounded out of the house, the A-lister then picked him up and carried him all the way to her car while inspecting him.
The 34-year-old, who recently split from Bradley Cooper, only adopted the rescue home dog in December, tweeting a picture of him to all of her followers. Obviously very attached to her little pet, Zoe clutched him tightly to her as she wandered along the road, looking like she’d been having withdrawal symptoms.

He gained a disappointing track time during his first stint on the Top Gear test track in 2007. But Lewis Hamilton made sure to show them how it’s done as he returned to the BBC Two show on Sunday night for an attempt at the Star In A Reasonably-Priced Car lap record in the hope of becoming the fastest professional on the circuit.
Smashing fellow Formula One star Sebastian Vettel’s previous record of 1 minute and 44 seconds, the 28-year-old sportsman managed to lap the circuit in a Suzuki Liana in an impressive time of 1 minute and 42 seconds. Hamilton previously appeared on the show back in 2007, but the wet conditions on the day meant he wasn’t happy with his lap time.
After hearing his winning time announced, he said: ‘Wow, holy crap. I’m surprised.’
With the star humming as he made his way around the track, host Jeremy Clarkson commented: ‘You weren’t even concentrating.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Matthew Williamson eschews his signature form-fitting silhouettes and over-the-top embellishment for a much more refined look for Fall 2013. His quintessential brights and bohemian flair are still at play, though given a new modern spin with roomy coats, knee-length peasant skirts, covered skater dresses, and more.

It was a big deal for the Kardashians – the moment one of their own made the leap from reality star to a TV personality with a real job. But after just one season sources claim Khloe Kardashian has been fired as a host on the X Factor, following a disappointing reception.
‘They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe,’ an insider confirmed to the New York Post. A spokesperson for the X Factor refused to confirm the report, instead stating simply: ‘The producers have not yet made the talent decisions for this year.’
Despite her wide popularity as a star on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe came to the X Factor with no hosting experience. Her lack of training showed as she occasionally appeared nervous and unsure of how to act in front of the cameras. The live show format was challenging for an inexperienced host, meaning links could not be re-recorded and Khloe’s comments were out unedited. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Salma Hayek proved she’s no shrinking violet as she attended a London Fashion Week show on Monday. The actress, 43, picked the perfect shade of purple to attend the Christopher Kane show with her husband of four years Francois-Henri Pinault, 50.
The billionaire wore a coat in a matching color to ensure they made a suitably fashionable pair. Salma looked elegant in her velvet frock with its black band around the waist that both flattered and accentuated her voluptuous curves. She finished off the stylish ensemble with a simple pair of T-strapped pointy black heels and black handbag and fedora hat.
Her love of fashion is evident, for Salma continues to be a dominant presence in the fashion world. It doesn’t hurt that Francois-Henri is the owner of several businesses, including luxury fashion brands Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and Gucci. Being married to the fashion tycoon practically guarantees Salma unlimited access to the world’s top fashion houses and a front row seat at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week last month.

She’s famous for playing tough women onscreen. But when it comes to her son Jackson, Charlize Theron shows a decidedly softer side. The actress, 37, was snapped kissing and cuddling the one-year-old while out and about shopping with her mother Gerda on Saturday in Beverly Hills.
The trio stopped by Children’s Place and Niketown, likely shopping for some birthday gifts for the little boy, who celebrated his first birthday party the following day. The former model was a doting mum, laughing and cooing as she placed a protective hand on the little tyke’s back while her mother Gerda held him close.
At one point the Prometheus star lent in and gave Jackson a cuddle as they walked, causing him to stick out his tongue and giggle, clearly loving the attention from his mum and grandmother. The South African beauty was also seen holding her son’s hand as he took a few teetering baby steps. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Having seen what fame did to his father you might expect Prince Jackson to shun the spotlight. But the 16-year-old has followed Michael Jackson into showbusiness with his appointment as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
The role is certainly a step up from the usual first jobs of delivering papers and washing cars. Prince will talk to celebrities for the show, with his first interview with Oz The Great And Powerful stars James Franco and Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi set to be screened this week.
‘I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor,’ he explained.
The teen told ET: ‘I’ve been raised around stuff like this so it was different being the interviewer instead of the one being interviewed.’
During the interview Prince refers to his late father, when he is complimented on his maturity. ‘That’s what most of my people say,’ he responds. ‘That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right.’
And it also seems younger sister Paris is following in her father’s musical footsteps. The 14-year-old tweeted a picture of herself strumming an electric guitar at her home on Sunday, captioning the snap ‘“#bass #jammin #music.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Chrissy Teigen has admitted that she has ordered four bridal gowns for her wedding to John Legend. The 27-year-old model, who has yet to choose a venue, says that her inability to prioritize is delaying the ceremony.
‘I have four wedding dresses at this point and no location,’ Ms Teigen told New York Magazine at a launch party last week. ‘They’re not here yet, but they will be,’ she said of the gowns, several of which are from Vera Wang. ‘And it’s going to be really sad. If you need any, let me know.’
The model and her Grammy-winning fiance are the stars of Chrissy Teigen’s Hungry, a new reality show that follows the couple as they choose their wedding menu. But with a lack of venue and date for the ceremony, plans still remain tentative.
‘We were going to get married in Tennessee at a beautiful farm,’ explained the brunette beauty, ‘but we overhauled it.’ She admitted: ‘I can’t ever make up my mind.’
And apparently Mr Legend, 34, is equally bad at making decisions when it comes to the wedding.
‘He doesn’t care,’ she said. ‘The worst part is he won’t look at my dresses and tell me if he likes them. He refuses to see them.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

She just endured a 20 hour flight after jetting to Nigeria for less than a day. So it was no wonder Kim Kardashian looked exhausted as she touched down at LAX airport on Monday. While she had a full application of make-up applied to her visage, the pregnant star appeared sleepy-eyed as she walked through the terminal.
The 31-year-old reality star kept her bump hidden beneath a simple white shirt which she teamed with black pants. But she did manage a smile for the cameras, perhaps glad to be home. Following her controversial trips to the Middle East and the Ivory Coast earlier this year, the reality star headed to Nigeria on Sunday.
The 32-year-old tweeted: ‘Just landed back home! 20 hrs of flying. No big deal.’
Despite staying less than a day in the city of Lagos, she was paid a reported $500,000 for her fleeting visit, angering some commentators in the African country.The mother-to-be was billed to ‘co-host’ the Love Like A Movie event with African R’n’B crooner Darey Art-Alade, for which tickets cost N100,000, or $640. But according to local reports Kim stayed at the event for 45 minutes, making a 45-second statement on the microphone. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

After signing up for celebrity diving TV show Splash, both stars were certainly aware they would be flashing a fair bit of their enviable figures in a variety of bathing suits and diving attire.
And famous participants Katherine Webb and Kendra Wilkinson were confidently showing off their curvaceous figures during practice for the show on Monday. It was very much a case of battle of the bathing suit babes as the stars flashed the flesh in revealing swimming costumes.
Former Miss Alabama Katherine had the edge in the sexy stakes in her purple low cut monokini which featured side cut out panels and purple lacing. Kendra’s black and gold suit showed off her famous Playboy curves but was a little more modest in comparison to her rival. The smiling Katherine seemed to be in good spirits as she showed off her new diving prowess by the pool. She left her brown hair loose around her shoulders, while Kendra tied her blonde locks up in her usual ponytail. The blonde bombshell later changed to practice in a blue and black wet suit.

In what appears to be a sneak preview of her new vintage fashion line, Eva Mendes went shopping on Sunday in a pretty lavender dress. It was the second time in two days the other half of Ryan Gosling strolled around wearing a retro style.
The 38-year-old announced last week that she has partnered up with New York & Company to create Eva by Eva Mendes, which will be an affordable vintage-inspired fashion line. The purple frock, which appeared to be a play on the 1970s peasant dress look, had slightly puffed three quarter sleeves that Eva rolled up; it also featured a belted cinched waist.
Despite a billowy bottom, Eva’s famous curves could still be seen as she parked her car on a Los Angeles street and entered a furniture store. She paired the dress with a pair of beige platform sandals, the same ones that she wore the day before with yet another vintage look. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

They are not known for being shy when it comes to expressing the most intimate details of their lives, but Kim Kardashian went into overshare mode on Monday night’s episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami. During a photoshoot for UK Cosmopolitan magazine, Kim and Khloe discussed filling out the magazine’s questionnaire and in particular what Kim would do if she was a man for the day.
‘If I was a man, I would want to know what it’s like to have sex with myself,’ Kim told her sister. ‘I would just want to know what it would feel like.’
As Kim speculated, older sister Kourtney was busy looking after children Mason and Penelope, often at the expense of her work commitments. She was absent from an Australian radio interview to launch a new Kardashian Kollection range because she was looking after her children, forcing Kim to do an impression of her.
‘Ever since Kourtney has had the two babies, she has tried to bail out of work situations,’ declared Kim. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

She went public with their romance only five months ago, even then stopping short of calling what they have a ‘relationship’. And after months of being tight-lipped about their budding romance, it seems Heidi Klum is finally comfortable displaying her affection for her new boyfriend, Martin Kristen.
The German supermodel tenderly laid her head on his lap as the couple soaked up the gorgeous weather in Los Angeles on Sunday with her four children.

The couple were later seen taking a stroll, while Heidi leaned on the shoulder of her former bodyguard, turned boyfriend.

Until now, Tom Ford has been limiting his collection viewings to small gatherings and presentations for the fashion elite. With Fall 2013, he branches out a bit to stage a runway collection for the brand — still virtually impossible to be invited to, but a little more in the Fashion Week vein with a catwalk and images readily available for public consumption hours later.

They may only be tiny tots but it seems they could be the new celebrity power couple of the future. Beyonce and Jay-Z’s 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy appears to have an admirer in the form of Alicia Keys‘ son Egypt, two. Alicia’s husband Swizz Beatz revealed Egypt and Blue may have shared an innocent kiss – much to the dismay of rapper Jay-Z.
During an appearance on US television series The Wendy Williams Show, Alicia said: ‘I think Egypt kissed Blue and I don’t think Jay liked it very much. He called my husband and he was like, “Watch your son.”‘
But the stand-off between the couple seems to have not have lasted too long as Beyonce and Jay-Z were seen chatting to Alicia and her son at a basketball game in Houston, Texas on Sunday.

Christopher Bailey has been at the creative helm of Burberry for over a decade now and has successfully managed to usher the longstanding, prim and proper fashion house into the 21st century with his modern spins on the classics.
For his latest collection for the Prorsum brand, he taps into a naughtier sensibility, inspired by Christine Keeler, the infamous English model, showgirl, and prostitute whose affair with the British Secretary of State for War, John Profumo, led to his resignation from Parliament in 1963.
A pretty racy subject to tackle, though controversy is what great fashion collections are made of. Titled “Trench Kisses”, the offerings meld the brand’s signatures with hints of the boudoir including grommets, sheer latex, heart print briefs, and so much more.

She’s shown a new reticence about her body since announcing her pregnancy, hiding her changing figure in layers of dark clothing. But Kim Kardashian overcame her shyness to show off the beginnings of a baby bump in a bikini as she posed for her first pregnancy photoshoot.
Wearing a white two-piece and a simple floral sarong, the reality star was styled as a ‘Tahitian princess’ and kept her make-up simple and hair brushed back. The images were shot by photographer Bruce Weber at his Miami home just five days after Kanye West announced his girlfriend’s pregnancy back in January. Looking relaxed and happy, Kim also takes to the pool in the shots, her hair wet and eyelashes glistening.
She told DuJour magazine she was having an easy pregnancy, with no morning sickness, no cravings and no fatigue.: ‘I used to always say I can’t wait to get pregnant because I will just eat whatever I want, but it’s completely different,’ she told the magazine. ‘I’m like, OK, I want to eat as healthy as possible.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Is it Heidi Klum or is it Kate Moss? Well, to be frank, Ms Klum looks rather a lot like the Croydon-born superwaif in a new shoot for Germany’s Interview magazine shot by one of Kate Moss’s favorite photographers, Rankin.
Of course, Mossy also counts Mario Testino as a close friend, so she has no shortage of snappers on speed-dial for dazzling portraits. But Rankin has photographed Kate, who is 39 just like Heidi, in iconic poses; and Klum seems to be recreating one of her looks right down to the retro silk shift dress and sultry eye make up.
Even on the cover, the glam rock stylings are very Kate… though Heidi’s different bone structure is more apparent. But the white one piece is definitely something that the British party animal would wear. Heidi has also followed in Kate’s footsteps in the relationship stakes by ditching the alpha males in favor of a supporting male. Kate married The Kills star Jamie Hince and found her life to become increasingly stable after dating egotistical Pete Doherty, and Heidi is dating her bodyguard Martin Kristen.

Proving why she is going to be a fan favorite in her new high diving reality show, Kendra Wilkinson showed off her new moves poolside on Tuesday. The former Playmate put in some serious flip practice in Los Angeles, California, using a harness and diving board over a net.
The 27-year-old has clearly been putting in a lot of practice recently as her form looked perfect as she expertly jumped, then tucked in her body to do the forward flip. In doing so, the mother of one showed off her perfectly toned athletic body.

When it comes to maternity wear Kim Kardashian has taken rather an unconventional approach. And while her aversion to smock dresses and elasticated waists is impressive, it occasionally leads to some rather strange outfits.
The reality star stepped out in an eye-catching combination of leather pants and an unusual dress-type top on Tuesday. The top featured plunging floor-length sections on either side that floated around Kim’s legs as she walked, but hung like pants when she stood still. With Los Angeles experiencing a rare rainy day Kim covered up by layering a blazer on top of the dress – also in black.
A pair of high black leather sandals completed the look. Kim was photographed in her outfit as she left a photography studio and headed to a petrol station to fill up her car. Women are advised that if possible they should stay clear of the pump while pregnant, in order to avoid inhaling fumes which could affect their child’s development. While the risks of the any dangerous chemicals being at high enough levels to cause a problem are very low, Kim didn’t take any chances. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

He sought out the job on his road to becoming well-rounded ‘as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor’ and on Tuesday night Prince Jackson struck out on his own as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
Despite those efforts, Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old son found himself the center of the story on Tuesday evening. The 30-minute program featured clips of co-host Brooke Anderson grilling Prince with questions in between teasers for his first assignment, while he patiently waited for his moment to step into her shoes and test his skills as an interviewer.
With little known about the length of Prince’s contract, producers were keen to exploit their most high-profile – and their youngest – new celebrity reporter. Teasers airing before his debut showed the teenager stiffly dressed as if ready to sit for a serious interview, while co-hosts told viewers about ET’s newest addition. Critics immediately put out their claws – surely a 16-year-old has not earned the credentials to juggle on-air interviews, despite his or her own status as a celebrity or even a studious cinephile, as Prince described himself.

She is rumored to be pregnant with her fourth child. And biracial actress/comedian of African-American and Caucasian Jewish ancestry, Maya Rudolph, added fuel to speculation that she is expecting as she turned up to the 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards in Los Angeles wearing a billowing kaftan.
The 40-year-old’s green floor length animal print dress hid any sign of a baby bump as she strolled down the red-carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Away We Go actress posed proudly with one bracelet-embellished hand on her hip and wore her wavy auburn locks out to rest on her shoulders.
The 40-year-old glowed as she smiled for photographers at the Lacoste-sponsored ceremony inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel. She is already mother to Pearl, seven, Lucille, three, and Jack, 19 months, with writer and director Paul Thomas Andersen. Up All Night’s Maya apparently told the NBC show’s executives that she is with child recently, throwing the future of the program into uncertainty.

She is most famous for her preppy and prim alter ego Charlotte York in Sex and the City. But on Tuesday night, Kristin Davis turned the tables on everyone and showed off her sexy side.
The 47-year-old actress, who was attending National Geographic’s Battle for the Elephants premiere in New York, hit the red carpet wearing a daringly low-cut frock. Kristin’s black dress showed off quite a bit of skin and featured a plunging V-neckline. The long sleeves trailed to the tops of her hands but had eye-catching cutaway details on both shoulders.
The full and flowing skirt fell to just above the knees, showing off her curvy legs in sheer black stockings as well as her pointy black high heels. Kristin’s svelte waistline was offset by a narrow black belt, which she seemed quite proud of.

At one time Tulisa had a reputation for regularly enjoying wild nights out on the town. But these days big sessions are few and far between as she spends much of her time on date nights with her boyfriend Danny Simpson.
And in keeping with her new chilled self the singer was spotted enjoying a quiet night out with pals in Manchester on Tuesday. Shunning a skimpy dress and massive heels, the 24-year-old kept it casual in a pair of black faded skintight jeans and printed grey T-shirt. Over the top she wore a black jacket while she carried a large black bag and wore a pair of open-toe black heels. Keeping it simple she wore a simple necklace, as well as a watch.
The X Factor judge looked particularly bronzed, perhaps still left over from her short break in Marbella recently. Showing off her natural prettiness she wore little make-up and her raven black hair fell loose. Tulisa was joined for the evening by a couple of friends, who seemed to be making her giggle as she walked along, as well as her PA and best mate Gareth Varey, who still had his foot in plaster.

She’s kept her newly dyed platinum blonde pixie crop under wraps up until now. But on Tuesday Charlize Theron fully unveiled her new look as she stepped out to go to the gym.
Shunning scruffy workout clothes the actress cut a super chic figure in her skintight leather pants and smart blazer. Presumably planning on changing once inside the gym, she teamed the pants with a loose fitting green blouse and a large khaki green scarf which she wrapped around her neck.
Matching with her green theme she carried a small green handbag with gold chain. But it was her short crop which stole the show as it was the first time she has appeared hat-less since she dyed it back to her famous blonde color. The Prometheus star shaved off her trademark flowing blonde locks for her role as Furiosa in Mad Max 4. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Every child can’t wait to hear the school bell ring for home time and Halle Berry’s child is no different. But it seems the actress was just as happy on Tuesday when she collected her little girl Nahla. The actress was all smiles as she arrived to pick her adorable child fathered by ex Gabriel Aubry.
The youngster – who turns five-years-old this March – seemed giddy as did the 46-year-old Cloud Atlas star who tried to keep up with her quick-stepping offspring. Her toned legs were draped in form-fitting denim pants as she walked up to fetch her daughter.
Appropriately dressed for skies which were threatening rain, she donned a well-cut knee-length coat and big boots with a casual stripy sweater. Nahla, not to be outshone by her mother, looked predictably cute in child-size construction boots. Setting off her wintry outfit, the young girl wore stripy tights, a denim skirt and a miniature blazer.

CNN morning anchor Soledad O’Brien is reportedly leaving the network and Erin Burnett will be replacing her alongside new co-anchor Chris Cuomo.
‘The deal to move Erin to the morning alongside Chris Cuomo is basically done,’ a source told the New York Post. ‘Soledad had been told she’d get a prime-time slot, but that hasn’t yet happened, and now she is telling friends she is likely to leave.’
The source added that O’Brien: ‘doesn’t seem to fit the direction the network is going’ under new CNN chief Jeff Zucker, even though she is ‘talented at producing in-depth, serious pieces of journalism, and is a tough interviewer.’
Zucker has made a number of sweeping changes at the network since he took over, including hiring ABC’s Cuomo and Jake Tapper. Both men found their paths to higher-profile jobs at ABC blocked.
Cuomo, who was news anchor at ‘Good Morning America’ from 2006 to 2009, was passed over for George Stephanopoulos as co-host of that show while Tapper twice didn’t get a shot at the anchor job on ‘This Week,’ first when Stephanopoulos left and then when he returned to the Sunday show.

Prince Jackson was in the mood for celebration on Monday after landing a new job with Entertainment Tonight. And the 16-year-old marked the occasion with lunch at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills with his young sweetheart Niki Berger and his aunt La Toya Jackson.
The teens held hands and cuddled as they left the restaurant. Niki was carrying a toy monkey, perhaps a gift from her beau, whose late father Michael also had a love of chimps. The couple were first pictured in 2011 and they are clearly still going strong.

It seems growing up in the spotlight has proved a valuable asset for Prince Jackson in his new line of work. Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old son was cool and collected during an interview with James Franco and Zach Braff despite technical glitches marring his first interview as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.

She was joined by a male companion as the pair stopped into a local cafe in Studio City.

Prince ‘Blanket’ Michael Jackson II turned 11 years old on February 21, 2013. The youngest of three, who is regularly referred to as ‘Blanket’ is quickly growing up before our eyes.
It was too long ago, when the King of Pop used to go through great lengths to conceal his children’s appearance in public. As a result, Blanket and his siblings were often seen wearing masks, scarves, and shawls over their faces when they were seen in public.
On naming Blanket, the King of Pop said: “It’s an expression I use with my family, I say, ‘You should blanket me … you should blanket her with something, meaning a blanket is a blessing, it’s a way of showing love and caring.”
“Blanket adored [Michael’s songs]. He could easily be the next Michael Jackson. He loved to dance with his dad and Michael taught him to do the moonwalk.” – A family friend, on Blanket’s love for his father’s music.

Earlier this week it was reported that her contract on the X Factor USA had not been renewed after she failed to win over audiences. But if Khloe Kardashian was feeling any sadness or animosity over the decision, she did a good job of concealing it on Thursday.

She usually looks glamorous and put together when she appears on TV screens every morning on Live! with Kelly and Michael. But Kelly Ripa looked like a different woman completely as she stepped out to go to the gym on Wednesday.
It seems her early morning starts have started to take their toll on her as she appeared make-up free and a little bleary eyed.

She is photographed constantly and all eyes are on Best Supporting Actress nominee Anne Hathaway ahead of the Oscars on Sunday. But that didn’t stop the Les Miserables star from invading someone else’s photo opportunity on Wednesday.
Anne seized her moment and photobombed actor Harold Perrineau at The Art of Shaving & Bungalow 8 Pop-Up in West Hollywood. As the Zero Dark Thirty actor posed for a reserved snap during the party, playful Anne suddenly popped up over his shoulder with a big smile on her face.
With the end of awards season just days away, there’s no doubt some of the toast of Tinseltown are looking to let their hair down. And it seems as though Anne did just that during the event, which was held at the Petit Ermitage hotel. Drummer Sheila E, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto and Jeremy Renner were also in attendance. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The clan are in town for Sunday’s Oscar’s where Salma is presenting an award. The stylish trio were fresh from Milan Fashion Week which may explain why they all looked so groomed. The Mexican-born actress is married to French billionaire Francois-Henri, who owns a large number of luxury fashion brands Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and Valentina’s favorite, Gucci. Salma graced the front row of the Gucci show earlier this week in Milan and as she arrived in LA she looked chic in a belted dress, knee high boots and a delicate blouse.

She was victorious in her first year after her girl group Little Mix became the first band ever to be crowned winners. But after a disappointing second season, Tulisa is reportedly set to pay the ultimate price for the ailing ITV show created by Simon Cowell. In a dramatic shake up, the 24-year-old is apparently weeks away from learning she will not be asked back for the tenth series.
According to The Sun, Cowell is set to give Tulisa the chop following ‘pressure’ from ITV to get the talent show back on a winning streak. Show insiders also revealed that Simon had to ‘fight’ to keep long time friend and veteran judge Louis Walsh on the panel as he was also up to receive the boot. Listing Contostavlos’ poor album sales as another reason the star is no longer right for the role as a mentor, the inside source said she’s ‘had a good run’.
A source told the paper: ‘Apart from her performance on last year’s show, you can’t have a singer whose album only reached No35 in the charts sitting in judgment on other singers.’
Continuing the informer added: ‘Tulisa has been on the panel for two years. She had a good run, but all good things come to an end. No decisions on this year’s judging panel have been made yet and this is pure speculation.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

She can afford the top restaurants in town but for Khloe Kardashian there is nothing better than grabbing a little fast food courtside while watching her husband play basketball. The reality star and her mother Kris Jenner combined catching up for a fried dinner and watching Khloe’s husband Lamar Odom’s team the Clippers do battle in Los Angeles, California, on Thursday night.
Proving why she is seen as the most approachable of the Kardashian sisters, the 28-year-old did not care who was watching as she sat front and center and enjoyed her food. Despite pulling some unusual facial expressions as she noshed down, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star looked great as she watched her husband of three years play. The reality star donned light blue distressed jeans, stylishly cuffed above the ankle, with a tight grey long sleeved top showing off her curves and a new pair of studded Pigalle Plato Christian Louboutin shoes. The brown haired beauty – who wore her locks in a half up half down hairdo, also debuted her newest and no doubt one of her priciest pieces of jewelry. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

He was heavily criticized for making an appearance on his girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And it seems that Kanye West has taken the backlash on board. It has been reported that the father of Kim’s unborn child has refused to appear in anymore episodes of the family’s popular program in fear that it will tarnish his image.

Karl Lagerfeld has an uncanny knack for blending modernity with classic silhouettes and for his latest collection for Fendi, he looks to bring back the original meaning of the brand’s “FF” insignia, originally standing for “fun furs”. One of fashion’s longest standing designers succeeds, playing on the house’s signature in exceptional ways. As is inherent to Fall, the brand is quite enthusiastic for the season, splashing the cozy texture everywhere from coats to booties.
The Fendi woman does it all effortlessly with a touch of edge thrown in for good measure, courtesy of the collection’s mohawks that are simultaneously punk and ’80s-inspired, but equally as gentle, transforming her into a cockatoo of sorts. The palette has its unconventional moments as well including the requisite neutrals, but also giving way to brights like cobalt and neon pink. Visit FashionBombDaily to view the full collection…
She has been experimenting with her maternity style extensively since her pregnancy was announced at the end of last year. And Kim Kardashian got it spectacularly wrong when she stepped out in a pair of garish snakeskin peplum pants on Friday whilst leaving her Beverly Hills mansion.
The patterned attire failed to flatter the 32-year-old’s pregnancy curves with their ill fit and frilled waistband. Kim paired the ensemble with a similarly unflattering turtleneck black sweater, which showed off a hint of her midriff.
The tight top was a little on the small side for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, whose figure continues to blossom as she gets nearer to her due date. The brunette star once again pared down her accessories by wearing just a simple pair of black suede heels on her feet and oversized diamond earrings in her ears. She wore her chocolate locks out in a wavy style, parting her tresses at the side. The odd outfit is the second one in a row for the reality mogul. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Gabriel Aubry kept his spritely young daughter close as she skipped her way to school. After almost losing joint custody last year to his ex-girlfriend Halle Berry, the Canadian model had good reason to be protective. Enjoying his parental duties, the doting father walked hand-in-hand with Nahla on the way to class in Beverly Hills, on Friday.
Little Nahla, looking sleepy but happy to be with her father, was dressed in an adorable ensemble. The youngster – who turns five-years-old this March – wore white trainers, accompanied by a stretchy pair of white leggings. She completed the outfit with a purple skirt, green shirt, and a cute light pink jacket. The excitable child could not keep her feet on the ground as her father coolly walked her from the parking lot to school. Named by People Magazine as one of the world’s Most Beautiful People, Aubry, 37, kept it low key in a pair of white trainers and paint splattered blue jeans. It was a bright sunny morning in California and the top-earning male model rolled up the sleeves of his black button down, barely covering the white tank top underneath.

Their new movie sees them wearing little more than bikinis. So it is perhaps hardly surprising that the stars of Spring Breakers chose such daring dresses for the Paris premiere.
In keeping with the theme of the movie, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine chose to flaunt their cleavage in plunging gowns, while Selena Gomez broke the trend and instead revealed her back. Of all the dresses 23-year-old Ashley’s was perhaps the most revealing. While the embellished black number was a modest floor-length, it featured a cut out section running from neck to breastbone, exposing her cleavage.
The Pretty Little Liars star matched it with suitably gothic dark nail varnish and a knowing smile, while wearing her blonde hair in waves. Vanessa went for a prom dress style peach gown with a full skirt and black rosettes decorating her cleavage. The hard-working dress only just managed to contain her curves, slipping to reveal her bra as the High School Music star signed autographs for fans. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

She spends a lot of time in her new film Spring Breakers wearing just her bikini.
And it seems Selena Gomez has become quite accustomed to flashing the flesh as she proved on Tuesday at the German premiere of her film.
The Disney star turned heads wearing a suit with a plunging neckline and nothing beneath it, showing off plenty of skin. Showing she’s a fully-fledged movie-star now the 20-year-old opted for the powerful-looking suit which featured fierce looking gold shoulder pads. The fitted jacket cinched in at her waist showing off her slim figure, while the low-cut aspect of it meant her breasts were on display.
The slim-legged pants made her legs appear even longer than usual, as did her black stiletto heels. Her sleek dark brown hair had been styled in large curls and helped complete her overall glamorous look. Selena looked particularly statuesque as she stood beside her co-star Vanessa Hudgens, who despite wearing heels was noticeably shorter than her co-star. The High School Musical actress looked stunning in one-shouldered multi-colored sequined dress. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

After braving the snow in Berlin and the bitter chill in Paris, it was time for the Spring Breakers cast to warm up in Madrid. And at the Spanish premiere on Thursday, Vanessa Hudgens looked thrilled by the change in climate.
The actress showed off her legs in a glamorous gown which featured a very high split as she walked the red carpet at the Callao Cinema in Madrid. Embellished with silver pieces all over her floor-length and scooped back number, Vanessa teamed it with pointy silver high heels. As she walked over to greet fans at the venue, the brunette was forced to carry the long material in her hand to avoid tripping over and revealed plenty of skin while doing so.
Her firey look resembled that of a flamenco dancer which was perhaps intentional seeing as she was in the European country famous for the ballroom style. The 24-year-old actress teamed it with Norman Silverman earrings and an Adeler ring. She wasn’t the only one to bare her flesh for the screening, which was graced by Spanish actress Ana Arias.

In the film Spring Breakers, they play a gaggle of girls who turn to a life of crime to fund their wild school holiday. So it’s no wonder the stars are so comfortable showing off some skin. Selena Gomez and her co-stars continued on their whirlwind tour of Europe as they walked the pink carpet for the premiere of their film at the Adriano Cinema in Rome on Friday.
The former Disney actress showed off her slim physique in a black jumpsuit with a plunging sheer neckline that left little to be desired. She accented her tuxedo-inspired onesie with gold chain accents along her neckline and hip and sky-high Casedei heels that placed her high above her co-stars. Selena also styled her long brown locks in beachy curls that look like she just stepped out of a real spring break.
Her outfit was a welcoming continuation of the sheer trend she’s been sporting at premieres across Europe this week, including her appearance in Germany on Tuesday in which she turned heads in an Atelier Versace pantsuit with a plunging neckline and a sheer open back. And 20-year-old’s exposed neckline was a stark contrast from her costars, who opted for more modest looks on the appropriately colored pink carpet. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

She’s known for being the niece of former Wimbledon player-turned-TV presenter John Fashanu. But it looks like Amal Fashanu wants to be known for something else – flashing a little too much skin, as both nipple and a lot of thigh were on show on Wednesday evening.
The 24-year-old suffered a serious wardrobe malfunction as she attended the premiere of Arbitrage, which stars Richard Gere. The aspiring model made sure all eyes were on her, although it was perhaps for the wrong reason in her red leopard print dress. While the dress was full length and featured long sleeves it didn’t do much at all to cover her up. The thigh-high split was more a hip-high split meaning much of her leg was completely on display.
Opting for breast as well as leg, the dress featured a cut-out detail which, once she turned to one side, meant her nipple was on display. Not satisfied with that amount of flesh, when she turned around it revealed another cut-out panel so her back was on show too. Completing her look she wore red lipstick and a pair of red heels and clearly excited about her look, she tweeted: ‘#fashion #animalprint #event #london #letsdothis #red #heels #mac.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

During one magical chapter of her childhood, Vanessa Hudgens lived in Anaheim, California — home of the 510-acre Disneyland theme park. On many days, Hudgens, her mother, and her younger sister would wake up, do schoolwork for a few hours and then head to the Happiest Place on Earth, where the family’s season passes became a regular part of their home-schooling curriculum.
“I don’t know if it was very conducive to a good learning style,” she laughs, “but it was fun.”
As it turns out it was time well spent. When Eurasian Hudgens, who is of Filipino and Caucasian American descent, was 15 she was cast as the leading lady in the Disney Channel’s High School Musical. The 2006 TV movie not only jump-started Hudgens’ acting career, but inspired a lucrative multimedia franchise.
“In 10,000 hours, they say you can master anything,” Hudgens deadpans. “10,000 hours in Disneyland and you’re the queen of Disney.”
Eurasian of Filipino and Caucasian American descent!
During her reign, from 2006 to 2008, Hudgens reprised her role as the sweet, brainy songbird Gabriella Montez in High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3: Senior Year.
She collected enough tween-centric awards and nominations to fill a Disney-licensed tote bag; dated her on-screen love interest and frequent duet partner, Zac Efron, in a highly publicized romance; recorded two studio albums–the gold-certified solo pop record V, and its follow-up, Identified; and zigzagged across the continent for a High School Musical concert tour.According to Forbes, she became one of Hollywood’s top-earning young stars, alongside Daniel Radcliffe and the Olsen twins. But these years weren’t all shopping mall tours and generous Mickey Mouse paychecks. In 2007 nude photographs the actress had taken ended up on the Internet.
“That was just a really shitty situation that sucked,” Hudgens tells me over breakfast at Kings Road Cafe in Studio City, her mood deflating for the first and only time in the two hours that we spend together. “That was by far the worst moment of my career.”
But perhaps those photos were a blessing in disguise, signaling to the world that she was not just the one-dimensional squeaky-clean face on the HSM collectible lunch boxes.
She was a typical 18-year-old girl with a camera phone and a sexual appetite. Hudgens manned up and took responsibility for the pictures, apologizing to her fans. (Disney stood by her throughout the ordeal, simply admonishing the actress with an afterschool special-worthy message: “We hope she’s learned a valuable lesson.”)
Five years later, Hudgens is about to embark on the most crucial year of her career yet — one which could cement her as a wide-ranging dramatic actress. After supporting roles in projects like Zack Snyder’s fantasy thriller Sucker Punch and the sci-fi adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Hudgens will plumb markedly darker depths in her next three movies — all scheduled for release in 2013.
If the first of these films — Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers, out March 15th — is any indication, the 24-year-old is headed into legitimate adult acting territory — a leap that few Disney stars have managed to land. Korine is the unconventional filmmaker — who shocked audiences and no doubt many parents, with his 1995 breakout film Kids — from whom the idea for the wickedly original Spring Breakers sprung.
The cra-mazing crime comedy stars Hudgens as one of four bored best friends who bust out of their small-town college and rob a restaurant to finance their spring break. After a raucous few days, the bikini-clad quartet is arrested, only to be bailed out by a corn-rowed rapper/gangster named Alien (James Franco), who incorporates them into his Florida crime scheme.
After making twisted, experimental films like, Gummo and julien donkey-boy, Korine returns to the same gritty world of unsupervised teenagers that he explored in Kids. But he tops himself in Spring Breakers, showing uncensored displays of debauchery that would make even the hardest-partying frat boy blush.
In other words, it’s a father’s — and a certain corporate mouse’s — worst nightmare. Ironically, though, it was Hudgens’ father, a retired firefighter, who flagged Spring Breakers as a script worth reading.
“He loved Kids so he was really excited for the project,” she says, then quickly adds, laughing, “He didn’t read the script, but when he saw that Harmony’s name was attached to it he said, ‘That’s going to be a really interesting project.'”
Asked what she considers the key to making the tough transition from Disney star to grown-up actress, she says,
“It’s always been hard for actors to cross that bridge but honestly, you have to hold out and do what you think is right for yourself,” she says, adding, “But I also think it is about finding someone who truly believes in you. Harmony took a really big jump in hiring me and [co-stars] Selena [Gomez] and [ABC Family actress] Ashley [Benson].”
Although Hudgens seems to think Korine gambled on her, the filmmaker says that he wrote the female roles with both Hudgens and Gomez in mind. In part because he loved the idea of incorporating actresses whom the audience “is not used to seeing in this way.”
(“This way” meaning that the girls writhe suggestively over each other, wield shotguns, take bong rips and snort coke off other spring breakers’ stomachs.) Korine even suggests that it was Hudgens who took a chance on him.
“From the very beginning, I’d say, ‘This isn’t going to be like anything else you’ve done before. We’re going to push it. So I need you to be bold.'”
Hudgens heeded his advice. And in what Korine considers her most impressive scene — one in which she and Benson shove a gun in Franco’s mouth — the actress not only holds her own against her Oscar-nominated co-star, Franco, but with the help of Benson, overpowers him with the kind of unexpectedly aggressive and manipulative temperament you might see in a David Lynch villain.
“The scene wasn’t even written like that,” Korine says. “She took it to this other place where she kind of tried to emasculate him and then he ends up strangely turned on by it.”
The actress refers to the scene as the one in which she and Benson “make James our bitch” and explains that it was not difficult to get into the Franco-taming mindset.
“You sit there. You’re smoking your fake blunts. You just do it.”
It was Franco, her avant-garde co-star, who attracted her to the unlikely project. (“I saw that James was already attached and I am his biggest fan. I thought, ‘I need to be in this movie.'”).
But even though they shared intimate scenes together, including a three-way love sequence in a swimming pool, Hudgens is not any more familiar with the enigmatic actor now than she was when she first read the script.
“I still don’t know him,” Hudgens says in wonderment. “I have no idea who James Franco is. I know who Alien is. He’s that into method acting. He comes on set as his character. In between scenes, he is still his character.”
“When I first saw him, I was speechless because he just completely transformed himself. The way he talked, with that accent… Everything he does is so organic.”
She did, however, bond with her co-stars Benson, Gomez and Rachel Korine (Harmony’s wife) over crushed-up vitamin B, which the actresses snorted on camera in lieu of cocaine. The foursome quickly realized that the vitamin’s effect was not unlike that of the drug it was simulating.
“We would run around set like mad men, and people would wonder, ‘Did you switch that out with anything?”’
Although her acting career began rather innocently — when she played Mary in the nativity story at age three — Hudgens has always yearned to test her dramatic limits. She’ll follow Spring Breakers with the thriller Frozen Ground, in which she plays a drug-addicted prostitute.
“Ever since I was young, I wanted to play really heavy and intense roles and really push myself in a dramatic direction. So I was like, ‘A prostitute! I can play a prostitute! This is going to be exciting.'”
The role that demanded the most transformation, however, is the wayward teenager she plays in the upcoming Gimme Shelter. For the survivalist drama, which is based on a true story and co-stars Rosario Dawson, Hudgens gained 15 pounds, chopped off her hair, wore three fake piercings and prepared by spending two weeks inside several covenant shelters for pregnant teens.
She describes the film as “my Monster,” and says she was so unrecognizable, even to herself in the mirror, that it took her time to regain her confidence and sense of self.
“It’s nice to be girly!” she exclaims. “I need my nails and my hair.”
Exiting the restaurant to head out on a hike, the actress protectively warns, “There are a lot of paparazzi outside, just so you know. So don’t get freaked out and scared.”
Indeed, a swath of photographers lie in wait, and trail us to a nearby park. They document her paying the parking meter, and station themselves at the bottom of the hill to await her return.
Pulling a basketball cap far down on her face, Hudgens whispers: “I’m always afraid that when I’m wearing a hat, I’m just going to run into a pole or something.”
A clumsy misstep might be the most exciting thing these paparazzi could catch her doing these days.
She spends most of her free time decorating her house (she just finished a Moroccan-themed room) and watching Girls and reruns of The Office with her boyfriend, Austin Butler, the handsome male lead in The Carrie Diaries.The couple has been together for a year and a half but they’re not quite ready for the next step — a puppy. After cooing at several passing dogs, Hudgens laments the fact that she can’t commit to canine ownership — even if she was a successful surrogate to her sister’s toy poodle, Moonshadow.
“I took her with me to shoot a movie once. After that, I realized it’s a lot of work, and she was kind of bitchy. I’m always traveling, so it’s hard.”
As we round a bend and overlook Los Angeles on an unexpectedly clear day, our conversation returns to Disneyland. The actress still adores her frequent childhood destination, and after a recent visit to the park’s legendarily private Club 33 — the only place in the park that serves alcohol — Hudgens has a new appreciation for her former home away from home.
“There’s nothing more fun than being drunk at Disneyland,” she giggles. Vanessa Hudgens has officially left the theme park.

Designer Rachel Roy’s home was a cabinet of curiosities: A vintage scalloped-edged screen in the softest of greens, a meticulously organized collection of National Geographic’s (some dating back to the 1930’s) and a host of Indian deities and dream catchers that turned up in the most unlikeliest of places.
It was these treasures that greeted us when we arrived at Roy’s home (along with her beyond cute puppy).
While Roy may live among the clouds with her two daughters in tow, her home and style is heavily rooted in historic reminders, which keep her grounded.
Her collection of colorful Indian saris, National Geographic’s (“it started with my family’s love of collecting them, my grandfather used to receive them in his State Department office”) are faithful symbols of her past. And though her Manolo collection could easily rival that of Carrie Bradshaw’s, Roy’s quick to credit her humble beginnings.
“Manolo’s were my first pair of designer shoes,” she told us. “I used to save up and wait until they went on sale. I would make friends with all the sales people and they would call and let me know when a sale broke. They were one of my favorite investment pieces and still are to this day.”
From every cataloged art tome that Roy uses as inspiration and research to the cherished pieces found in her jewelry box – each item tells a story of Roy’s past, present and future.
“The pieces I choose always have a deeper meaning and story behind them. My collaboration with Deepak Chopra really reflects that: we did a sword body chain that has ‘Keep the Stillness Inside of You’ engraved on it and when I wear it, it reminds me to just that.”
With a killer soundtrack playing in the background – Rhianna Radio, F.Y.I. – Roy took centre stage, captivating us all with her effortless glow and presence, while Jake snapped away feverishly.
My collaboration with Deepak Chopra really reflects that: we did a sword body chain that has “Keep the Stillness Inside of You” engraved on it and when I wear it, it reminds me to just that.
“I think I got it,” he said… just minutes later. This clearly wasn’t her (or his!) first rodeo.

Thandie Newton has told how she was abused as a teenage actress on a casting couch. The 40-year-old British star said she was still scarred by a ‘horrific’ incident involving an unnamed male director when she was 18 and looking for her ‘big break’.
Miss Newton, now a mother of two and married to the film producer Oliver Parker, said she later found out the director involved had shown a video of her ordeal to others in showbusiness.
The Cambridge-educated actress, who has starred in films including Crash and Mission: Impossible II, has chosen to speak out about her abuse as part of an international campaign to end violence against women, One Billion Rising – the number who have been raped, beaten or abused.
‘When I was a 16 year old fresh from boarding school going out in, you know the casting couch, I was definitely objectified to an extreme. ‘The way I was made to feel. The way I was exploited and the kind of role and the kinds of things I was expected to do in auditions.’
Foster asked: ‘So you were abused as a 16-year-old?’ Miss Newton replied: ‘Yes.’
She goes on to explain, however, that at the time she didn’t know how to react because it was conducted in what she describes as a ‘professional environment’.
Referring to the incident that happened when she was 18, she continued: ‘It was a screen test. There were two other people in the room – the director and the casting director, who was a woman.’
‘The director asked me to sit with my legs apart – the camera was positioned where it could see up my skirt – to put my leg over the arm of the chair. Before I started my dialogue, [I was told to] think about the character I was supposed to be having the dialogue with and how it felt to be made love to by this person.’
She was confused because it was a ‘professional environment’: ‘I was thinking “this is so strange, why would I need to do that?”’ she said. ‘But this is the director, there is the casting director, [it] must be normal.’
‘I’m 18 years old, you know, and I’m thinking this is, obviously… I was in a protected… there were boundaries.’
Three years later, she discovered the video was being shown by the director to other showbusiness figures.
‘It turned out the director… used to show that video late at night to interested parties at his house – a video of me touching myself with a camera up my skirt,’ she said.
Miss Newton declined to name the director or say if she knew whether he was still in the business. Now married to producer Oliver Parker, she said the coupl were accosted by a drunken British producer at a party in Cannes several years later who boasted of having been shown a video of her ordeal.
The actress was born in London to a Zimbabwean health care worker and her British husband and grew up in Cornwall. Her name means ‘beloved’ in Zulu. She married English writer and director Oliver Parker in 1998. The couple have two daughters: Ripley, 12, and eight-year-old Nico.
Americans may never get over their obsession with amazing hamburgers, but they’ve certainly made room for an equally delicious meal between bread: the artisanal sandwich. Here, Food & Wine names the best sandwiches in the U.S.
Chef-partner and New Orleans native David Guas’s menu spells muffaletta phonetically according to the Yat pronunciation (an English dialect unique to NOLA).
His recipe also stays true to his roots with a briny garlic-and-oregano-laced olive salad, salami, mortadella, smoked ham and aged provolone in a sesame-seed-studded toasted Italian roll.
At Bunk, co-chefs Tommy Habetz and Nick Wood reinvent iconic American foods. That means transforming biscuits and gravy into a sandwich filled with braised rabbit leg, or preparing luscious melts, like this version packed with locally canned albacore and finished with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Tillamook cheddar.
Chef-owner and F&W People’s Best New Chef 2012 Tim Byres slow-cooks the meat for this coffee-inflected brisket sandwich in the restaurant’s backyard wood-burning smokehouse.
Shredded pork and gooey triple-cream cheese fill a tomato-garlic-and-olive-oil-rubbed ciabatta roll in Bin No. 18’s loose interpretation of the traditional Cuban sandwich. Although it’s served with a fig-and-port-wine reduction, customers usually skip the accompaniment and reach for the hot sauce Sriracha.
These delicious sandwiches, filled with crispy buttermilk-soaked, cayenne pepper-spiced fried chicken, sell out fast. Each of Bakesale Betty’s two Bay Area locations is only open for three hours a day–even less if there aren’t enough sweet torpedo rolls to keep making sandwiches.
To create smoked meat–NYC pastrami’s fattier, spicier Canadian cousin–for the sandwiches at his Montreal-style Jewish deli in Boerum Hill, chef-owner Noah Bernamoff cures Pat LaFrieda-sourced, prime-Angus-certified beef brisket in a dry rub of salt, black pepper, spices and garlic before oak-smoking and steaming the meat for several hours.
Oprah Winfrey is a noted fan of this grocery-store-turned-Jewish-deli’s famed Reuben–and with good reason. The sandwiches are made with locally sourced corned beef, Emmentaler Swiss cheese, house-made Russian dressing and house-made rye bread. Zingerman’s shop also offers mail-order sandwich kits for out-of-state Reuben cravings.
It happened like clockwork, every month, for decades. The pain would leave Padma Lakshmi ‘balled up in bed’ for days at a time. There were cramps, bloating, nausea and shock-like sensations running along the length of her legs.
And once the agony had abated, she suffered crushing fatigue and mood swings that affected every area of her life.
Endometriosis is a female health disorder that occurs when cells from the lining of the womb (uterus) grow in other areas of the body. This can lead to pain, irregular bleeding, and problems getting pregnant (infertility).
Every month, a woman’s ovaries produce hormones that tell the cells lining the uterus (womb) to swell and get thicker. The body removes these extra cells from the womb lining (endometrium) when you get your period.
If these cells (called endometrial cells) implant and grow outside the uterus, endometriosis results. The growths are called endometrial tissue implants. Women with endometriosis typically have tissue implants on the ovaries, bowel, rectum, bladder, and on the lining of the pelvic area. They can occur in other areas of the body, too.
Unlike the endometrial cells found in the uterus, the tissue implants outside the uterus stay in place when you get your period. They sometimes bleed a little bit. They grow again when you get your next period. This ongoing process leads to pain and other symptoms of endometriosis.
Why does this happen?
The most commonly accepted theory suggests that during menstruation, pockets of endometrium travel up the fallopian tubes into the pelvis and are deposited, rather than passing out of the body. These deposits are affected by the female hormones around the time of menstruation. Endometriosis can also cause what are known as adhesions, which stick organs such as the bowel to the womb, further adding to pain.
Who does it affect and why?
Endometriosis occurs in women of reproductive age, and is more common in those with a relative who suffers. It is an oestrogen-driven condition so is more common in women who have had a longer exposure to the hormone – for example, starting periods at a young age makes endometriosis more likely.
So it’s not just bad period pains, then?
The condition is characterised by pelvic pain. Specifically, women get severe prolonged period pain starting in their late 20s. Other typical pain for the condition occurs during intercourse, at the time of ovulation or before a period affecting the lower abdomen.
The second important sign of endometriosis is infertility, and often it is when trying to conceive that a woman is first diagnosed. Other less common signs are pain associated with bowel and bladder movements, irregular bleeding and fatigue.
Why are so few women diagnosed?
If a woman’s period pains are relatively mild, neither she nor the doctor would be looking further for a cause. Diagnosis can only be made during a surgical procedure called laparoscopy: a camera is inserted through a small incision into the abdomen so the errant tissue can be seen. Obviously this is not risk-free, so is only suggested when symptoms are severe.
Can endometriosis be cured?
Sadly, no. But the condition can be prevented from interfering with life with the help of painkillers or hormonal treatments. Surgery can sometimes be used to improve symptoms and fertility.
Despite these debilitating symptoms, the model-turned-TV-chef came to believe it was just part of life, as doctors dismissed her ‘women’s problems’.
Embarrassed that people would think she was exaggerating, she admitted: ‘I thought I was just being a wimp.’
The 42-year-old, once married to celebrated author Salman Rushdie, says today: ‘I was told that some women get menstrual cramps badly and some don’t and it was normal for me because my mother had them. I saw her suffer the way I came to suffer.’
Padma’s ordeal began when she reached adolescence and she needed hospital treatment on more than one occasion. But it wasn’t until the age of 36, following a visit to accident and emergency with heavy bleeding outside of her normal cycle, that she was finally given a diagnosis: endometriosis.
The condition, in which cells that normally line the womb grow outside it (usually in the abdomen), is thought to affect two million British women. Padma’s case was so advanced by the time it was spotted that specialists told her she would be unlikely ever to have children – even with the help of IVF.
So it was a shock, to say the least, when she discovered that she was pregnant after a brief relationship with Adam Dell, brother of computer firm founder Michael, in 2010. Even her doctor described the conception as ‘nothing short of a medical miracle’.
Today, Padma is a fiercely proud and protective mother to Krishna, who celebrates her third birthday next week.
‘It ended up happening accidentally,’ she says, hoping her story will inspire others facing infertility caused by endometriosis. ‘I’d spent most of my life trying not to get pregnant and it was only after stopping taking birth control – because I was told that I couldn’t conceive – that it happened at all.’
Teasingly, Padma says she would like more children, although she admits her age and history make it unlikely.
‘I’ve always wanted to be a mother, but I never knew it would be so much fun and I’d enjoy it so immensely. My daughter is such great company. I would love to have another child or two.’
It is thought up to ten per cent of women suffer some form of endometriosis!
Like Padma, many are simply told they have severe menstrual cramps. She says: ‘Ever since my teens, I was bedridden for two or three days each month and had to take prescription painkillers. I missed school, I missed work, I missed family functions.’
‘If I had been diagnosed at 15, 20, or even 30, my life would have been different. That would have been four or five days every month that I wouldn’t have been incapacitated, that I wouldn’t have been tired, that I wouldn’t have been nauseous and cranky.’
Padma, who co-founded The Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA) to encourage women to look out for the symptoms of the illness, continues: ‘I was galvanised by what I went through. Chronic pain is a terrible thing. It impedes your ability to make rational decisions. It alters your ability to handle other stresses in life.’
‘Endometriosis affects every aspect of a woman’s life. It is woven into the very fabric of her life and it develops as her womanhood develops through her adolescence and early years. It becomes part and parcel of a woman’s opinion of her own body, of her femininity, the relationship she has with herself and her sexuality. It affects her intimate relationships, her platonic relationships and her business relationships.’
Padma had surgery in 2001 to remove two ovarian cysts and was rushed to hospital when she was 34, suffering pain and bleeding that she now knows was endometriosis-related. But at the time the condition still wasn’t diagnosed.
‘I tried everything to help, from teas to evening primrose oil, from over-the-counter pain medication to acupuncture. The pain was debilitating, but more than that it was incredibly frustrating that no one was able to tell me what was wrong,’ she adds.
‘It never feels good to have someone tell you that you’re crazy, or you’re making things up. It hurt me physically but also emotionally to live with this pain. I didn’t understand why I couldn’t just take an over-the-counter painkiller and feel better like everyone else.’

Meet 25 year-old Karrueche Tran, a Blasian model of Vietnamese and African descent. Karreuche is very exotic looking, as she is of both Vietnamese and African descent. She has posed for brands, such as LoveSicc, and allegedly refuses to do nudes. S
Karrueche has many quotes tattooed all over her body, and according to her Tumblr, she very much enjoys food. Out of her photo-shoot-fresh high-waist shorts and tiny red bikini top, she comes clean about her thorny relationship status.
“I feel like, more than anything, girls can relate to me, regardless of if what they have to say is negative or not,” she explains. “Because the situation is so messy.”
Despite being snared in a love triangle that rivals Brangelina’s, third-wheeling with music’s controversial lovers has afforded Karrueche an op to launch a clothing line, The Kill, with the man responsible for her fame. After meeting Chris through a styling gig two years ago, while he was still warring with the media over his 2009 assault on Rihanna, the ex–personal assistant kept her bond with R&B’s bad boy platonic.
A crushing public breakup in October 2012 (during which Chris dropped an inebriated confessional admitting his love for both Rih and Kae) has made her the odd woman out, even as she and Breezy serve as strange bedfellows in a partnership that places much of the creative control in her well-manicured hands.
For her part, Karrueche assures The Kill will satisfy demand once on racks: “Our clothes are all black and white. I don’t know any other line that’s doing that,” she notes.
Though pushed back from its 12/12/12 launch date, the line has snagged prime pixel-space on style blogs, thanks to Breezy, Christina Milian and Bun B sporting Kill headgear in public. The moniker for the unisex street-wear-meets-high-fashion threads is itself an attention-grabber.
“When people first think of the name, they think violence, guns, blood and being very aggressive, but it’s not,” she says, citing La Roux’s hit “In for the Kill” as inspiration.
“I liked it because the name stood out. I can’t say the clothes are for one type of person.” What about a person named Rihanna? She laughs nervously before unleashing an abrupt, “I don’t know.”
“I never respond to the haters. There’s no point because at the end of the day, nobody knows me,” says the newfound Insta-fashionista.
“It’s honestly weird, because I was brought into this whole ‘being known’ thing. I was never looking for fame. Seeing myself on blogs sometimes, it’s like, ‘Chris isn’t with me. Why are you following me?’”
Now accustomed to the flashes, Karrueche has upgraded her paparazzi’d garbs from dressing in mama’s tights as a tot to loose tees and Jordans as a lady. The upside of an impromptu entourage is that she’s always picture-perfect. As the Chrianna reality show plays out, her relations with Chris remain blurry at best (snapshots of her and the superstar linger on her Instagram).
But she’s willingly hanging on by a thread. “He’ll always be in my life because we have a line together,” she states.
The prospect of a three-way chat with Rih, that’s a little more unlikely. “It would take me to somewhere I wouldn’t want to go,” says Karrueche, still oddly cordial. “Whatever it is will never be understood, even from Chris and Rihanna.”
