How four years in the White House have aged Obama!
Heavy and grey is the head that wears the crown – a lesson that President Obama and many of his predecessors have learned the hard way. When Mr Obama takes the oath of office next Monday marking the beginning of his second term, it will not be the same smooth-cheeked, black-haired man who first joined the exclusive club of leaders of the free world in 2008.
Comparing pictures of the 51-year-old commander-in-chief from four years to those taken more recently reveals a startling yet obvious truth: standing at the helm of the U.S. government takes a heavy physical toll. The man staring back from Obama’s official 2008 portrait has jet-black hair, smooth skin, bright eyes and only minor wrinkles. Fast forward four years later, Mr Obama’s tresses are now unmistakably salt-and-pepper, his facial skin appears looser, more wrinkled and dotted with spots.
‘You look at the picture when they’re inaugurated and four years later, they’re visibly older,’ Connie Mariano, White House physician from 1992 to 2001, told The Washington Post. ‘It’s like they went in a time machine and fast-forwarded eight years in the span of four years.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Washington prepares for Obama’s inauguration with practice rehearsal!
Washington is at a standstill today as the final dress rehearsal is held for President Obama’s second inauguration tomorrow. Actors were drafted in to play the President, Vice President and their wives – and couldn’t help looking uncomfortable at the center of the gigantic military operation.
Thousands will gather in front of the Capitol on Monday, January 21, to see President Barack Obama take the oath of office for another four-year term, with his wife and two daughters at his side. His second inauguration promises the pageantry of the first, but on a smaller scale than 2009, when a record 1.8 million people filled the nation’s capital to witness Obama making history as America‘s first black president.
Obama has chosen to use two Bibles during his swearing-in – one owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and the other by Abraham Lincoln. He used the Lincoln Bible while taking the oath four years ago and is adding King’s Bible for the inaugural ceremony that will take place on January 21, the federal holiday honoring the civil rights leader.
At the 57th presidential inauguration a week from Monday, Chief Justice John Roberts will administer the oath of office to Obama while Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will administer the oath to Vice President Joe Biden. It’s a day rich in history and tradition. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

President Obama released the official playlist for his inauguration in an effort to hype up expectations for the star performers. The list, released via his Inauguration-focused Twitter account, include well-known group of Obama favorites like Beyonce, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry, all of whom have attended multiple fundraisers for the President in the past.
Newer acts like the band fun. and Far East Movement were also included, with their songs Carry On and Turn Up The Love singled out respectively. The list of Grammy Award-winning acts has already been publicized, Thursday was the first day that the President’s tech-friendly staff have released a playlist using Spotify.

White House responds after being scrutinized for lack of diversity and women in office: ‘We employ a diverse staff including women!’
President Obama may be regretting his newfound commitment to appoint women to the top ranks of his administration. Judging from a photo taken on Thursday at a White House meeting, Cecilia Muñoz, Director of the Domestic Policy Council, is holding the president’s feet to the fire as she leans in and gives the Commander-in-Chief an earful.
Ms Muñoz’s aggressive stature was featured in the White House Photo of the Day, a continuation of Mr Obama’s public relations campaign to show that women are well-represented in his inner circle. The photo in question showed an interaction on Thursday after the president met with policy advisers in the Roosevelt Room of the White House.
Ms Muñoz previously served as the Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. Her appointment to head the domestic policy office was announced this January. The picture was widely circulated by the White House, with skeptics saying its a ploy from the administration to show that women do in fact have a place at the table when it comes to policy making.

‘The Administration does not support blowing up planets’: White House releases hilarious letter refusing petition to build a Death Star…
Bad news for geeks: the White House will not be building a Death Star. When the White House received a petition with more than 25,000 signatures they had to respond, and they did so in good humor citing the costs of the station, and the administration’s strict stance on not blowing up planets.
‘The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon,’ wrote Paul Shawcross in the response, titled, ‘Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016. This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For.’
The bullet points are these: ‘The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it. ‘The Administration does not support blowing up planets.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

President Obama signs 23 executive orders on gun control!
The National Rifle Association tonight blasted the sweeping set of gun control proposals put forth by President Obama a few days ago, saying that the 23 executive orders that he signed will do nothing to combat violence in America.
‘Attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation,’ the NRA said in a statement. ‘Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy.’
The orders that President Obama signed on Wednesday prompt the most wide-spread restrictions in the past two decades, with measures including universal background checks on all gun buyers, a renewed ban on ‘military-style’ assault weapons and a 10-round limit on ammunition magazines. Obama is calling for greater gun controls in reaction to the December 14 massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.
He made the remarks in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building to an audience that included parents of the Newtown victims as well as gun children who wrote him letters asking for greater gun controls in the aftermath of the shooting.
‘We can’t put this off any longer,’ Obama said. ‘When it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us we must act now.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

White House slams gun lobby’s ‘repugnant and cowardly’ ad that calls Obama an ‘elitist hypocrite!’
The National Rifle Association has launched a preemptive attack against President Obama’s unveiling of his gun control plan Wednesday with a new ad that calls him an ‘elitist hypocrite.’ The 30-second ad, released on a website for the NRA’s new ‘Stand and Fight’ campaign, criticizes Obama for using Secret Service protection for his two daughters while he opposes the deployment of armed guards in schools.
‘Are the president’s kids more important than yours?’ the ad’s narrator asks as an image flashes on the screen of a child’s hand holding a lunchbox emblazoned with the presidential seal. ‘Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools, when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school?’
The ad cuts to a picture of Obama flanked by NBC’s David Gregory, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Vice President Joe Biden.
The narrator continues: ‘Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. Protection for their kids – and gun-free zones for ours.‘ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Happy 49th birthday Michelle! A look at how Mrs Obama became a style icon with substance!
Michelle Obama, who turned 49 on Thursday, has proven her fashion savvy time and again since she was introduced as first lady in a yellow sheath and coat by Isabel Toledo on Inauguration Day 2009 – so much so that we don’t discuss it nearly as much as we used to.
Four years ago, there was a daily barrage in the media: Jason Wu gown! J. Crew gloves! Jimmy Choo shoes! It remained that way for months and even years. There was the Naeem Khan beaded strapless gown for the first state dinner in the Obama White House, the black racer-back dress by Michael Kors worn in her official portrait.
Her wardrobe for the Obamas’ state visit to England, including the white cross-neck halter gown by Tom Ford she wore to a black-tie event with Queen Elizabeth in London, and the fiery red Alexander McQueen she wore the for the state dinner the Obamas hosted for China generated news around the globe.

FLOTUS Michelle Obama gets bangs for her 49th birthday!
What did Michelle Obama, who turns 49 today, get for her birthday? Apparently, a whole new hairdo’ and Twitter account. As the First Lady’s office unveiled her new Twitter identity this afternoon, @FLOTUS, the second tweet revealed her new blunt bob, with heavy bangs.
Her new cut, sharper, more sophisticated, comes in the wake of supermodel Karlie Kloss’ new bob, after she cut off seven inches of hair late last year. Dressed in a burnt-red, elbow-sleeved patterned jersey dress, the 49-year-old showed off her new hairstyle, reminiscent of Katie Holmes’ chop in 2008, when she met with Inaugural citizen co-chair David Hall earlier today.
Mrs Obama has always had shoulder length hair, but since her entry into the White House in 2008, she has so far preferred to keep her look loose and flowing – or tied back. The New York Times coined this return to shorter hair, ‘The Karlie,’ last night. So far the response to Mrs Obama’s new do’ has been positive, with thousands of Twitter users agreeing in unison that they ‘love’ her new bangs. In an age of the overused term ‘style icon,’ Mrs Obama proves again she is one of the few modern women to deserve it. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

POTUS and FLOTUS Michelle volunteer on first day of inauguration weekend!
First Lady Michelle Obama took her new bangs for a second outing today as she and the President rolled up his sleeves to help paint bookshelves at a run-down Washington school to mark a National Day of Service.
Chelsea Clinton helped kick off President Obama’s three-day inauguration celebration, urging people, at a summit on the National Mall, to participate in volunteer projects, adding that there’s a chain of service that links generations of Americans from all across the country.
Mr and Mrs Obama, and their daughters Malia and Sasha, joined 500 volunteers to spruce up Burrville Elementary School while Vice President Joe Biden, his wife, Jill, and others members of his family also gave up their time to help others. The 70-year-old spent the morning filling care packages for U.S. troops serving overseas, veterans and first responders at a Unite America in Service event where he charmed other volunteers, one of whom got a kiss on the hand.
Speaking at the summit, Clinton said she was inspired by the volunteer work of her grandmother, Dorothy Rodham, who began as a child volunteer teaching migrant workers English and kept up her volunteer efforts for her entire life.
She said Americans should ask themselves: ‘What are you doing for others.’
‘In my family, the only wrong answer to that question is nothing,’ she told the crowd. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Rupert Murdoch on 400lb woman who fell through sidewalk in NYC: ‘How did she get to 400 lbs? Welfare, stamps, etc?’
Rupert Murdoch today sparked anger by mocking the 400lb woman who fell through the sidewalk in New York City. Ulanda Williams, 31, was hospitalized on Friday with a broken arm after falling through the concrete as she attempted to shelter from the rain outside a restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
The media mogul took to his Twitter yesterday writing: ‘How did fat lady who fell thru street get to 400 lbs? Welfare, stamps, etc? Then leave us all with 20yrs immense health bills.’
But the statement angered some of his 394,446 followers on the social networking site. ‘Only poor ppl are fat? Escape your bubble,’ wrote @axk.
@drgrist responded saying: ‘You probably should have kept that one between you and your therapist.’
‘It’s not the food stamps, it’s the limited purchase power they afford and the food they’re allowed to buy’, wrote @murtaug.
The billionaire later wrote: ‘Did not mean to be unsympathetic to 400 lb lady, but fact remains unhealthy eating by rich and poor driving up premiums for all.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Coco Austin highlights her hourglass curves at Martial Arts Awards in Las Vegas!
Coco Austin’s dress fit her like second skin. The Peepshow newcomer gave quite a performance when she stepped out to attend the 5th Annual Mixed Martial Arts Awards in Las Vegas on Friday night. How the buxom blonde managed to squeeze her ample figure into that skintight black number is anyone’s guess.
Coco paired the dress that looked painted on with ankle-strap stiletto heels, while accentuating her full pout with hot pink lipstick. Coco, the wife of rapper-turned-actor Ice-T, loved the attention her outfit got her. The 33-year-old Los Angeles native preened and posed in every direction to afford everyone a good view of her bare back and softly padded backside.
Coco began her stint in the Sin City adult revue show Peepshow in December, taking over from a heavily pregnant Holly Madison.

Spotted: Charlize Theron, Adam Sandler, Jack Nicholson and Robin Thicke catch a Lakers game…
Cheer up guys, it’s only a game. Charlize Theron, Adam Sandler, Jack Nicholson and singer Robin Thicke were quite the unhappy bunch sitting court side as the Lakers cruised toward another loss at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Friday night.
Dressed in a red hoodie and corduroys, Adam sat aside the Lakers die hard, who’s sat through enough losses to know how to keep his displeasure to himself. The Just Go With It funnyman, on the other hand, looked like he was taking a pass as new coach Mike D’Antoni’s job, waving and shouting at the players as they trounced back and forth on the floor.
And Charlize looked completely miserable herself, slouching back in her seat as she perhaps reconsidered spending her night cheering on the ever failing team. With her mother Gerda by her side, Charlize kept casual in a denim jacket and black jeans with nude booties. Also catching the game was singer Robin Thicke and his adorable 2-year old son Julian. As for the actual game, the Lakers were flattened by the Oklahoma City Thunder, defeated by a double-digit margin of 116-101. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Busy Heidi Klum is low-key on coffee run with boyfriend Martin Kristen and her kids…
It may be awards season but some celebrities are still making time for downtime with the family. Heidi Klum proved just that as she stepped out with her brood on Saturday in Brentwood, California. The 39-year-old looked rather dressed down compared to her recent appearance on the red carpet just three days before.
She donned a loose and long black dress with zigzag cut over a pair of jeans and boots, covering up even more with an oversize zip up coat. She wore aviator sunglasses to shield her eyes from the sun and kept her head warm in a diamante encrusted hat.
Letting her unstyled blonde locks hang loosely, she was out and about with her bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kristen plus her children, Lou, Leni, and Johan. The clan made a stop for morning drinks from Starbucks and Heidi stayed close to Lou as they walked back to the car while Martin led the way carrying their purchases from the café.
Heidi’s look is a far cry from her glamorous gown at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday. The supermodel parent dressed her little girl in a cozy pink printed ensemble with UGG boots and woolly hat with furry bobble. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Bill Bradley to give away George Lucas bride Mellody Hobson at couple’s wedding…
When filmmaker legend George Lucas marries fiance Mellody Hobson, the bride will be given away by someone very unexpected: former New Jersey senator and basketball hall of famer Bill Bradley. The Chicago Tribune reported that Hobson, a 43-year-old Chicago businesswoman, announced the news while addressing a crowd at the headquarters of Groupon.
‘Bill is walking me down the aisle,’ the president of Chicago-based investment management firm, Ariel Investments LLC, said Thursday.
After Hobson’s Star Wars creator partner, 68, popped the question recently, Hobson said she knew immediately she wanted to get Bradley involved.
‘I told him, “Hey! You’ve got a job to do!”‘ she said. ‘He started crying.’
Hobson said she first met the Olympian, former senator, and former Democratic presidential candidate at the age of 17 when Bradley helped convince the burgeoning businesswoman to attend Princeton, his own alma mater, over Harvard. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kim Kardashian covers up billowy shirt and baggy pants as she jets into Los Angeles…
It seems Kim Kardashian is trading her sexy outfits baggier clothes as her baby bump begins to take form. The self-styled fashionista is usually happy to flaunt her curves in the finest clothes that money can buy, but that wasn’t the case when she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday.
Kim, who is believed to be about three months pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West’s child, was virtually make-up free as she strolled wordlessly through the airport in a grey coat and a loose blue pin-striped shirt.
The girl who seems to have everything matched her plain Jane ensemble with simple black pants, brightened by a pair of black peep-toe heels. She wore her long dark hair piled in a simple bun on top of her head. Behind the tinted sunglasses that she wore, Kim looked straight ahead as passers by stopped to stare without even a smile. Perhaps the 32-year-old reality star’s off-color appearance meant that she was missing Kanye already, or she may have simply been making sure she and her bump were comfortable.

Diddy and girlfriend Cassie go house hunting and engage in a bidding battle with Jerry Bruckheimer for historic $24.5 million Beverly Hills mansion…
It sounds like the script for a Hollywood movie. So no doubt Jerry Bruckheimer will give a wry smile when he finds out he may have to outbid hip hop mogul Diddy if he wants to buy his dream house. The jolly rapper was spotted being given a tour of the $24.5 million Beverly Hills mansion with his rumored girlfriend Cassie Ventura.
The historic house, which sits on two acres, was originally owned by Harry Cohn, the legendary founder of Columbia Pictures. In more recent years it functioned as the home of Guess? founder Georges Marciano, and is being sold of as part of his bankruptcy proceedings.
It was put on the market for $24.5 million, but film-maker Jerry has reportedly had a $23 million offer accepted. And Diddy may decide he does not want to lose face by being outbid for the seven bedroom property.

Halle Berry puts on a racy display in a revealing dress at BET Honors bash!
It may still be the winter season but apparently that hasn’t put the stars off revealing plenty of flesh on the red carpet. Halle Berry and Gabrielle Union both stunned at the BET Honors event, many thanks to their flesh-baring outfits. Halle, 46, allowed her décolletage to be envied as she stepped out in a gown which provided more than enough cleavage.
She ignored any fashion rules and coordinated hues of the item with the ground she was standing on in metallic peep toe heels. Eager to show off her footwear and equally eye-catching pin, Halle’s frock featured a high split which her leg popped through.
Her spiked up blonde-tipped hair added to the actress’ fiery look as she appeared at the bash sponsored by Pantene at Warner Theater in Washington DC. The Award For Service recipient wasn’t the only attendee to show a lot of skin.
Bring It On star Gabrielle Union went beyond the average keyhole size cut-out that some stylish ladies like to wear and donned an olive green number with a gaping hole in the chest area. The belted floor-length dress was teamed with a two chunky gold bracelets on her wrist and Gabrielle left her shiny black locks down for the occasion. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Heidi Klum gets her kicks on the soccer field as she challenges her sons to a game…
Heidi Klum could probably beat her boys at their own game. The supermodel proved her prowess on the soccer field when she took her boys for some ball practice on Saturday, and she didn’t even have to suit up. Heidi kicked the soccer ball and threw the football like a pro, even while wearing a bulky black overcoat, jeans, woolly scarf and tall boots.
She certainly inspired her sons Henry and Johan to give it their all on the field in the posh Brentwood area of Los Angeles. Henry was wearing his blue soccer outfit and the doting mother even got down on her knee to tie the laces on his sneakers, even though the seven-year-old must know how to do that himself by now.
Johan was decked out in red shorts, white T-shirt and a red and navy jacket, and was having a great time kicking the ball around while his proud mum watched. Heidi, no doubt, was knowledgeable enough about the game to give Johan some pointers too. The happy display showed that it may be awards season but some celebrities are still making time for downtime with the family. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Not only were there a host of famous faces due to attend, but the event was happening smack bang in the middle of awards season, so the pressure was on to stand out.
And there were certainly a lot of Hollywood starlets competing for attention at The Art of Elysium’s 6th Annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night, with Mena Suvari, Camilla Belle and Ashley Madekwe leading the way.
It appears the trio had the same idea when it came to how to steal the spotlight, with all three actresses opting for stunning floor-sweeping gowns, complete with lengthy trains, as they posed up for photographers at the event.
American Beauty star Mena opted for a black strapless design by former Project Runway alum Christian Siriano, showcasing her stunning figure in the outfit, which featured sheer fabric to give a hint of skin beneath. John Legend and his beautiful fiance Chrissy Teigen coordinated their outfits, while the model glowed.
But going for a more obvious look, with incredible results, was Revenge star Ashley, who wowed in a jaw-dropping gold beaded outfit, with a large cut-out on the back.

The picture of motherhood! Charlize Theron keeps her baby boy wrapped up in her arms…
Facing motherhood alone is a daunting task for any woman, but Charlize Theron has clearly settled into life as a single parent well, and obviously prefers to keep her baby as close to her as possible. Cradling baby Jackson in her arms, the actress looked maternal whilst her outfit and hairdo was far more androgynous.
Still, she was the perfect picture of a modern mother, doing it alone, and doing it well. On the same day, Charlize met up with Ted star Set MacFarlane at Beverly Hills hotel. The actor – who created Family Guy – will be hosting this year’s Academy Awards ceremony in February.
An Oscar winner herself – Charlize could give Seth a little advice on how to handle the stage, but as a naturally funny guy with critically acclaimed TV shows under his belt, one would assume he’ll know how to work a crowd, especially if it’s made up of celebrities. The Prometheus star announced her adoption news in March and took home Jackson soon after. Her decision to adopt no doubt shocked fans, but apparently Charlize has known she would go down this path to motherhood since she was a little girl. Opening up, the 37-year old has spoken about a letter her mother had found which she had written aged eight. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The Saturdays’ Rochelle Wiseman tries to hide her growing baby bump with a billowing scarf…
She may be using the old pros trick of using a scarf to mask her growing bump, but there’s no denying that Rochelle Wiseman is a glowing mother-to-be. The 23-year-old Saturdays star looked chic and stylish as she arrived with her fellow bandmates to attend a business meeting in LA.
Rochelle, Una Healy, Mollie King, Vanessa White and Frankie Sandford are currently in the US to promote their new E! TV program, Chasing the Saturdays. The show will follow the girls as they travel round and try to break the tough American market in a similar vein to fellow British pop acts One Direction and The Wanted.
Rochelle has just returned from a belated honeymoon to the Maldives with husband Marvin Humes from JLS. The couple who wed in July last year announced that they were expecting their first baby, due in the summer, in November. She took to Twitter to talk about her struggle with her body clock after landing at LAX airport on Sunday.
She wrote: “I think I may have created my own time zone!! My body has no clue what’s going on lol.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Madonna drops price of her Beverly Hills mansion for sale by a whopping $5.5 million!
After quietly listing her very material mansion for $28 million in March, but failing to get any bites, singer Madonna has dropped the price of the home to $22.5 million.
In another move to show that she’s serious about getting rid of the nine-bedroom property, The Borderline singer is now allowing the home to be listed onto the very public Multiple Listing Service, where both the haves and the have-nots can openly gawk at stunning photos of the property.
The French Country-style mansion was previously a pocket listing, meaning the real estate agent was not allowed to advertise to the general public that it was for sale. During the 10 years she has owned it, the 54-year-old pop star rebuilt and expanded the estate. It was completed in 2010. The gabled-roofed estate sits behind gates on 1.17 acres of landscaped grounds.
The compound, accessed by a 500-foot tree-lined driveway, includes the nine-bedroom main house, offices on site for assistants and live in staff, plus two guesthouses. Outside there is a resort-size swimming pool and a tennis court. A famous health and exercise fan, there is a two-story dining room and a gym. There’s also a theater/screening room, an art studio, a bar and 17,000 square feet of living space.
Meanwhile, Madonna also wants to sell her big New York City house….Her Manhattan abode hit the market in November at a cool price tag of $23.5 million. Madonna, who still has many properties around the world, including a home in London, has not said why she wants to dump two of the largest jewels in her real estate portfolio.

Chelsee Healey takes a fashion gamble in jumpsuit… and it paid off!
Chelsee Healey is more often criticized than congratulated for her outfit choices, but her fashion gamble paid off on Saturday. Inspired by the disco glam of the seventies, the Waterloo Road actress was able to show off her curves without showing too much skin. Because of the halterneck design, only her back could be seen, creating a more demure image than usual.
Chelsee cinched in her tiny waist with a black and gold belt, and matched the metallic one piece with further gold accessories. A giant envelope clutch bag, watch, earrings, chain necklace and gold painted nails seemed a little much but, the former Strictly Come Dancing star does love to sparkle. She stood out from her friends who were wearing a mix of pleather leggings, black top and towering heels.
The extra effort in the wardrobe department may be down to Chelsee vowing to get fit for 2013. The 24-year old tweeted: ‘This week I’m going hard in the gym healthy eating, and detox!!! Can’t wait #stamina #healthyliving #feelgood’
So if this is her last night to enjoy a tipple or two, at least she did it in style at Manchester’s Grosvenor Casino. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Beautiful: Kim Kardashian slinks into tight pink pencil skirt and matching blouse!
It’s been chilly in Southern California so when Kim Kardashian ventured out for a walk this morning, she threw a woolen peacoat over her shoulders. Though the large, wide-shouldered coat dwarfed the reality star, her curves, especially her growing belly, literally popped out of the picture.
The 32-year-old reality star was a vision in a very light pink, long-sleeved blouse and matching pencil skirt as she visited her family in Calabasas. But the dress barely contained her growing pregnancy curves. Even the wide-shouldered coat, seemingly borrowed from fiance Kayne West, barely fit her middle.
Always the fashion plate, Kim’s light lipstick and the blush on her cheeks matched the color of her dress. Her long locks flowed down her shoulders and back. Accessories were kept to a minimum, with Kim not even bothering with a handbag. She wore a pair of black, low-heeled classic pumps. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Lookbook: Thom Brown pre-Fall 2013…

Lenny Kravitz and Charlotte Free model ‘Eleven Paris’ new collection…
He’s the rock star known for his cool style and attitude so when French fashion brand Eleven Paris hired Lenny Kravitz to model their Spring/Summer collection, they needed a female star to match.
And they found an American Woman who can hold her own in the style stakes besides Kravitz in the form of Charlotte Free, who took the fashion world by storm last year with her quirky pink hair and striking look.
The face of Maybelline, she has graced Vogue covers and designer catwalks and now fronts Eleven Paris’ ten year anniversary campaign with Kravitz. The pair were flown to Miami for the shoot and model the brand’s spring/summer collection that focuses on off-white shades mixed with citrus hues in the male and female ranges.

Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki has stand-off with security guard during video review!
Dirk Nowitzki has been down in the dumps a bit lately, wondering aloud whether the Mavericks will be players in free agency, prompting owner Mark Cuban to publicly assure his franchise forward that he wouldn’t be traded.
So it’s good to see Nowitzki back to his jovial self in this hilarious video from Dallas’ 117-112 overtime victory over Sacramento on Thursday. With the Mavericks leading 100-98 with less than a minute remaining in regulation, the three referees gathered around courtside video monitors to conduct an official review.
Nowitzki wanted to poke his head into the group, perhaps to get a look at how the replay would fall or to conduct a little gamesmanship given the tight time/score situation. Unfortunately for Dirk Nowitzki, who wed his beautiful biracial Kenyan bride Jessica Olsson in July of last year, two Sleep Train Arena security guards were assigned to create a buffer between the officials and the players, and one of the security guards got the unenviable task of staying between Nowitzki and the referees as he non-violently tried to wind his way towards the officials.

Lookbook: Tibi pre-Fall 2013…
With fresh iterations on old ’80s favorites, Tibi pre-fall ’13 can be seen as an exercise in making new fashion friends while still keeping up with the old crew. There are wider-than-your-average shoulders, color-blocked dresses, and decidedly geometric angles, but the collection also boasts painted skyline prints, (actually) flattering bermuda shorts, and leather skirts that can be casual, too.
In short: Tibi’s wear-it-everywhere ease mixed with an eye on streamlined shapes and uptown sophistication is back at it again — except this time dancing to Robyn. Dance-floor high fives all around. Visit Refinery29 to view the full 2013 collection…
Halle Berry relaxes in baggy jumper after Golden Globes awards…
The Cloud Atlas actress slipped on a pair of sky-high nude Louboutin pumps and some Madstone earrings and metal bangles to complete her pink and taupe diaphanous look.

A final decision is imminent on her bitter custody battle with Gabriel Aubry, Nahla’s father. The 46-year-old and French actor Olivier are trying to move to Paris with Nahla.

Inside Sofia Vergara’s new Diet Pepsi commercial…
She may have missed out on scooping a Golden Globe on Sunday but the evening did mark an exciting moment for Sofia Vergara. The Modern Family star’s latest Diet Pepsi commercial made its television debut during the airing of the ceremony. Sofia looks stunning as usual in the clip, which sees her showcase her famous curves in figure-hugging dress in a bold cobalt blue hue.
The premise behind the advert is that Sofia crashes a wedding and while attempting to get a can of Diet Pepsi, is called upon to make a toast.
‘I am so honored to say a few words about the lovely can,’ the 40-year-old begins to a bewildered crowd. ‘I mean the couple.’
She attempts to make amends but once again only has the fizzy drink in mind, as she tells the newlyweds: ‘You look so delicious.’
Realising her mistake, Sofia adds: ‘In love,’ before finally getting her hands on the soda and raising her can in toast.

Kim Kardashian on pregnancy: ‘It’s a miracle I even got pregnant!’
She’s looking forward to the birth of her first child. But Kim Kardashian has revealed that her unplanned pregnancy was ‘a miracle’ – as she has secretly battled fertility issues.
‘It’s kind of a miracle that I even got pregnant,’ she told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda on the Today show on Tuesday.
She had earlier explained on the Today Show: ‘Khloe has been very open about her fertility issues and I think I was always really kind of quiet about mine, and I have similar issues.’
Kim’s younger sister Khloe has openly talked about her distress following her failure to conceive during three years of marriage, with initial tests revealing she was not ovulating. Meanwhile Kim has been dating her boyfriend Kanye West for nine months and is expecting their baby in July.
Kim explained of her pregnancy: ‘It was a pleasant surprise when so many doctors were telling me one thing and then the opposite happens.’
The 32-year-old said she found it hard to believe she was really going to be a mother: ‘I think until I really start seeing, like, a belly, it won’t really sink in. It’s just like a weird realization until you really start seeing the physical changes, um, and every day’s different.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

South African Albino model Refilwe Modiselle covers Grazia magazine, says: ‘I feel beautiful!’
South African-born albino Refilwe Modiselle has defied the odds in becoming one of the most sought after fresh faces on the model circuit today. A striking natural beauty, her white blonde hair, pale skin and ice blue eyes mean she is instantly the focus of attention – a trait designers are using to their advantage.
Yet the 27-year-old says it is only recently she has begun to feel comfortable in her own skin: ‘I never thought I’d be a model,’ she said in an interview with Grazia magazine. ‘I finally feel beautiful.’
She previously has said that she ‘lives in the skin of a white person’ and spoken out about the hardship and stigma endured growing up as an albino in South Africa.
‘When I used to walk down the street kids would always say mean things. I don’t care,’she said. ‘People thought my mother was involved with a white person. I remember agents not being too keen to sign me either.’
Albinism is a congenital condition in which the person has no pigment in their skin, hair and eyes, which causes them to have very pale skin which provides very little protection against sunlight due to an absence of melanin. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

‘It’s the Botox. Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes,’ the 42-year-old star revealed in the February issue of Elle Magazine. ‘So I feel like [Botox] makes my makeup artist’s life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now.’

The mother-of-three said: ‘I feel like as long as you take ownership over your own flaws, it doesn’t hurt if someone else points them out.’

Even though they’ve just been on their honeymoon, it seems that the JLS star doesn’t want to let his wife out of his sight as they walked arm-in-arm through JKF airport with the other girls in tow. They might have appeared on the Jay Leno Show in Los Angeles the night before, but the band’s hectic schedule, promoting new E! show Chasing The Saturdays, means that they’ve got no time to rest as they jetted straight to New York to appear on The Today Show.

It’s certainly not a look we’ve seen on Kim Kardashian before. The reality star swapped her usual fashion for a series of veils as she took part in a cover shoot for Arabian luxury women’s magazine, Hia.

The Oscar winner looked like any other mother as she juggled two-year-old Louis, a bag of shopping and the toddler’s backpack on Wednesday in Los Angeles, California.

The adorable toddler looked pretty dapper doing it as well, with his hair perfectly coiffed into a stylish mohawk and wearing a red and blue stripped with blue jeans and red and white mini Adidas shoes. His Blind Side actress mother dressed more for comfort for his pre-school drop off. Looking very tired, Sandra donned light blue distressed jeans with a black hooded t-shirt, black suede flat boots and a black puffer jacket.
Obviously getting her little boy ready didn’t leave much time for cosmetics, as the People’s Choice winner just threw her hair in a messy top knot on her head and covered her make-up free face with large sunglasses. Despite this, the almost 50-year-old looked a decade younger – even without making herself up. While Louis was at school Sandra busied herself buying gifts, no doubt for the two-year-old’s teachers.

Tamera Mowry tries to get twin sister Tia to eat her placenta on ‘Tia & Tamera’ season finale!
As identical twins Tia and Tamera Mowry have a lifetime of shared experiences. But even allowing for their tight sibling bond, Tia got a bit more than she bargained for when her sister Tamera invited her to sample her placenta following the birth of her son Aden John in November. In a bizarre stunt for the season finale of Style’s Tia & Tamera reality show, Tamera squirted some of her placenta into her sister’s mouth with a dropper.
Unsurprisingly, Tia, 34, took some convincing.
‘So you want me to try and taste your placenta? Oh my god I see residue,’ Tia exclaimed as Tamera moved forward to squirt the substance into her mouth.
Perhaps it was the brandy her sister had mixed into the placenta to make it more palatable, but Tia was pleasantly surprised by the taste.
‘It’s kind of good!,’ Tia remarked.
It wasn’t the first time the twins have shared bodily substances. Tamera drank some of Tia’s breast milk in 2011 following the birth of her son Cree. Tia joked that tasting Tamera’s placenta was payback for their earlier breast milk stunt.
‘I was really, really surprised that it tasted pretty good mixed with a little bit of alcohol,’ she wrote on her blog. ‘It was definitely Tamera paying me back for making her taste my breast milk.’
‘I tasted my own breast milk and I still think my breast milk was sweeter than Tamera’s placenta!’
Eating placenta after birth – placentophagia by its scientific name – is a common practice in the animal world, but is less usual amongst humans. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Singer Alexandra Burke has been unlucky in love, but is ‘Mr Selfridge’ star Jeremy Piven the one?
Alexandra Burke has been pictured slipping into the hotel of Mr Selfridge star and notorious Hollywood womanizer Jeremy Piven after an evening out partying.
The 24-year-old X Factor winner, who has a history of being unlucky in love, is thought to have accompanied the US actor to designer Tom Ford’s party last week but when spotted by onlookers, ever chivalrous Jeremy reportedly jumped out of their shared cab.
But it seems their ruse to possibly hide their new romance was shattered after both were spotted going back to the plush Corinthia Hotel, Alexandra appearing soon after Jeremy was seen waiting in the hotel lobby. He was later seen hanging around the lobby until the Hallelujah singer, dressed to kill in a tight black dress, walked into the hotel.
A source told Heat magazine: ‘She’s definitely his type. She could be the one who tames him.’

Carmelo, who was recently suspended for one game and will lose $177,000 of salary over fight with Kevin Garnett’s about ‘Cheerios’ jibe has another problem at hand.

Carmelo said: “I don’t care about the microphones, I wasn’t aware of it. I found out on the plane [ride]. I don’t think the mics are going to stop what goes out on the court. But it was funny when I heard it. No, I wasn’t upset. Not at all.”

Khloe Kardashian loses her temper over ‘horrible’ tabloid reports: ‘These blatant lies are distasteful and shameless!’
As a Kardashian, she is used to having details of her personal life thrust into the spotlight. But youngest sister Khloe has become increasingly frustrated with what she has deemed ‘false stories’ in U.S. tabloids about her marriage and efforts to become pregnant.
The 28-year-old took to her Celebuzz page to refute recent reports in a strongly worded post, saying: ‘These blatant lies are distasteful and shameless.’
‘It is disgusting that Life & Style and InTouch magazines continue to print these false stories about my life: the status of my marriage, false reports about a miscarriage, the horrible lie that my dad is not my biological father, jealousy over my sisters’ lives, etc,’ she writes.
‘It is a complete waste of time to address these reports every time they print these ridiculous and absurd tabloid stories, but not only are these stories untrue, they’re also unfair to the people who buy the magazines expecting to read accurate reports.’
Khloe was referring to allegations that the late Robert Kardashian is not her biological father, claims vigorously denied by her mother Kris Jenner. A magazine also this week published a picture of Khloe under the caption ‘Cheating Scandals’ along with the allegation that she and husband Lamar Odom had split. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Last year, Sofia admitted in an interview that she was ‘dreading’ the new arrival on the set:
‘It’s going to change for me, because then, actually my hours of shooting with Ed and Rico [Rodriguez], they’re very fast, because we come prepared,’ she told Katie Couric.
‘We do it fast – Ed is very professional, and Rico too, he’s like an adult. And now, with a baby, it’s going to be double because they cry, and then, ‘Bring the other one, bring the new one, the diaper’ – so we’re dreading it.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Britain’s Got Talent: Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden go for ladylike chic on second day of auditions…
Their style has at times been polar opposites. But as they left their hotel for the second day of filming for Britain’s Got Talent on Thursday, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon both chose ladylike glamour. Alesha, 34, opted for a bubblegum pink dress with a white Peter Pan collar and accessorized the look with a youthful pop of turquoise nails, heels and jewelry.
Meanwhile Amanda, 41, looked every inch the Hollywood siren in a white peplum dress, white heels and a black 1940s style bag. She topped off her outfit with what every glamazon needs – a slick of red lipstick. With such different styles, fashion battles between the two have sometimes been a tough one to call, yet on Thursday they both looked splendid with their prim and proper preening. Although Alesha had her legs out, she bravely snubbed a coat as she walked out of her luxury hotel before feeling the nip of the chilly Welsh winter.
Fan Jane Leyshon, 36, said: ‘Not many women would go out wearing a dress like that in this weather. ‘It certainly brought out a couple of her finer points – perhaps she will wear her thermals next time.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Michael Jackson’s doctor Arnold Klein hints he is Prince Michael’s father in cryptic Facebook post…
The fallen former dermatologist to Michael Jackson has invited speculation he is the biological father of the late King of Pop’s son Prince after contrasting an old photo of himself with an image of the youngster on Facebook.
Dr Arnie Klein, who has been mired in bankruptcy and financial woes in recent years, posted an old picture of himself beneath a photo of 15-year-old Prince Michael with the cryptic tag ‘hmmmmm’. The photo appears to be a wry nod to conspiracy theorists who have speculated for years that Klein donated his own sperm to help the late King of Pop start a family. Jackson, who died in 2009, fathered Prince Michael and daughter Paris with ex-wife Debbie Rowe, who previously worked as Klein’s assistant at his practice in Beverly Hills.
Jackson’s third child Blanket was born by an anonymous surrogate in 2002. Rowe has never spoken publicly about the identity of the biological father of the children she bore Jackson. However the eccentric Klein has previously gone on record to rule out any role in the parenting of Jackson’s children. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Jovan Belcher’s mother signed agreement giving up custody of his $3 million baby…
The mother of late Kansas City Chief linebacker Jovan Belcher seeking custody of her son’s baby who’s worth more than $3 million signed over custody of the child two days after the father’s murder-suicide it’s been revealed. Cheryl Shepherd, whose son publicly took his life along with the baby’s mother’s last December, had granted ‘temporary guardianship’ to the mother’s family despite today’s ensuing fight for custody.
It’s that agreement, though temporary, which legal experts say severely damages Ms Shepherd’s chance of winning back custody of the four-month-old, as well as the child’s lucrative estate. Zoey, who’s currently living with the mother’s family in Austin, Texas, was orphaned on Dec. 1 when her father killed her mother, Kasandra Perkins, at the couple’s home in suburban Kansas City.
Belcher’s mother had been living with the couple for about two weeks and was in the home when her son killed Perkins before taking his own life at the Chief’s Arrowhead Stadium. Ms Shepherd received temporary custody of Belcher’s daughter soon after the shootings and filed a petition in mid-December asking to be appointed as Zoey’s guardian and conservator of her estate, which is worth about $3 million.

NBA glamour lights up London and Lala Anthony and son Kiyan were there to witness it!
A host of Premier League stars past and present sat courtside as the NBA brought its unique brand of razzamatazz to London Friday. The New York Knicks beat the Detroit Pistons 102-87 in a regular-season game in front of a sell-out 18,689 crowd at the O2 Arena in North Greenwich.

Clint Dempsey, Jack Butland, Ryan Bertrand, Sylvain Distin, Tim Howard and Marouane Chamakh were all in the stands too. Ashley Cole was here courtesy of his friend Dave Hancock, the Knicks’ English director of training and conditioning who was once physio at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho. The England left-back proved an unwelcome spectator however, with loud boos emanating when cameras projected his image onto the big screen midway through the third period. Think George Osborne at the Paralympics.
Carmelo Anthony’s son Kiyan Anthony also sat courtside with his mom Lala as they watched daddy, New York Knicks forward, play against the Detroit Pistons during their regulation NBA basketball game at the O2 Arena in London, England on Friday January 17, 2013 and led the New York Knicks to a 102-87 victory.

A 15 strong SWAT team were sent to Kris and Bruce Jenner’s California mansion on Friday afternoon; with at least two helicopters hovering up above as back up. Kim Kardashian, 32, tweeted her panic from the Ivory Coast after being informed of the commotion, which was sparked by a bogus call to the police claiming a shooting had taken place at the Calabasas home.
Her younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie were less dramatic and saw the funny side of it all… as did patriarch Bruce, who posed for an instagram with the police officers. The 17-year-old then posted a picture of her father merrily posing with officers in front of the mansion’s famous sweeping staircase; and of the squad cars lined up outside the home.
Kylie Tweeted: ‘my neighbours officially think I’m crazy’ to which her sister Kendall replied: ‘Our whole household is crazy.’
Kim, of course, was a tad more dramatic. She wrote: ‘Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home & 15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up!’ Kim added: These prank calls are not funny! People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. It’s dangerous & not a joke!’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Alexandra Burke dresses down for girl’s night out…
She made headlines this week when she was spotted slipping into the hotel of Mr Selfridge star and notorious Hollywood womanizer Jeremy Piven. But despite talks of a rumored romance, Alexandra Burke stepped out to party on Friday with just the girls.
However it seems the 24-year-old didn’t get the memo about dressing to impress as she looked considerably under-dressed as she joined a host of female pals to attend model Jourdan Dunn’s leaving party.
The X Factor winner opted for a casual look for her night out, perhaps to avoid getting too cold in the snowy weather. Slipping into a pair of very tight black disco pants, Alexandra showed off her toned figure. Instead of wearing a glamorous top though the singer opted for a large orange long-sleeved top.
Over the top she hung a leather jacket on her shoulders and in keeping with the look she sensibly wore a pair of biker boots. While her outfit may have been casual her hair looked A-list party ready as wore it down and poker straight. Her look was in stark contrast to model Jourdan Dunn’s glitzy look. The gorgeous girl, who was holding a leaving party ahead of her move to New York, opted for a very short gold sequined dressed. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Make-up free Salma Hayek arrives in snow-covered Paris with look-a-like daughter Valentina…
It’s fashion week in Paris, and even the pint sized stars are joining in on the festival of couture. Salma Hayek arrived in the famed city of lights on Friday with her look-a-like daughter Valentina dressed to the nines in designer gear. The pair were cozily bundled up for a cold winter storm that dumped as much as 2 inches of snow on the charmed city.
The curly haired 5-year-old looked ready to walk the catwalks of fashion week wearing an off-white Gucci puffer coat and matching navy blue Gucci hat and red scarf. The 46-year-old arrived make-up free but still managed to look chic as she covered up her famous curves in a full length black wool coat and matching black fedora hat.
The Mexican-born actress is married to French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, who owns a large number of businesses, including luxury fashion brands Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Venetta and Valentina’s favorite, Gucci. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez endulge in retail therapy…
Maybe landing on the worst dressed list at the Golden Globes has inspired her to spruce up her wardrobe. Halle Berry was spotted on Friday walking alongside French beau Olivier Martinez on the trendy shopping strip Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach, California. Not joining the pair was Halle’s 4-year-old daughter Nahla, who has been caught in the middle of a nasty custody dispute with her father Gabriel Aubry.
Olivier played the doting boyfriend, carrying several large bags as the couple of two years strolled arm in arm. The Cloud Atlas actress was decidedly dressed down for the warm and sunny weather, wearing a loose grey poncho over an oversized white shirt and torn jeans matched casual cool with a large grey hobo bag and black strappy boots.
Her boyfriend and Dark Tide co-star matched her casual cool with a black leather jacked and grey T-shirt and jeans. The 46-year-old’s look was quite the departure from Sunday’s fiasco at the Golden Globes, where the slender actress looked as through she was popping out of the bodice of her Versace dress.

Olivia Munn steps out in bizarre ‘tracksuit’ style outfit at BAFTA Los Angeles 2013 Awards…
Despite accepting an invite for a British style tea party, Olivia Munn looked a little more ready for the gym than a swanky awards season celebration at The Four Seasons Hotel.
The 32-year-old star arrived at the BAFTA Los Angeles 2013 Awards Season bash on Saturday afternoon sporting a bizarre black and white sleeveless top and pants with one white stripe down the side.
The brunette star was only outdone in the badly dressed stakes by Bond Girl Bérénice Marlohe who sported an ill fitting white belted pant suit which little to flatter her svelte figure. The stunning French actress teamed her outfit with black strappy heels, bright red lipstick and smoky eye shadow.
Their pantsuits were a stark contrast to the more appropriate tea dresses worn by stars Sienna Miller and Francesca Eastwood.

Denzel Washington and Kelly Reily dazzle at ‘Flight Paris movie premiere…
He’s a Hollywood A-lister with two Oscars to his name and has been nominated for another one. But on Tuesday night, Denzel Washington was happy to let his Flight co-star Kelly Reilly be the center of attention at the Paris premiere of the film. While Denzel, 58, kept warm on the freezing night in his coat, English actress Kelly, 35, bared some flesh in a dramatic black gown with cut-out back.
The pair and their co-stars are on the European promotional trail for the new drama, which has been nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Denzel. Also in attendance was the film’s director Robert Zemeckis, former Heroes star Jimmy Jean-Louis and Italian actress Caterina Murino.
Flight stars Denzel as troubled airline pilot Whip Whitaker, who battles drink and drug problems while on the job. Rising star Kelly, who plays Mary Watson in the recent Sherlock Holmes movies, plays a recovering heroin addict Nicole. In a recent interview, Denzel admitted he abstained from alcohol during the film, but over-indulged in food so he could look bloated.
He told Seven magazine: ‘I absolutely did not drink the entire picture. Normally I might have a glass of wine after work or something like that.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…
