Dita Von Teese thinks she has a classic look

By Andrea Petrou on November 16th, 2011

Dita Von Teese thinks her look will “work at any age”.

The 39-year-old burlesque model explained she had an “epiphany” at a recent shoot, and discovered she can still maintain her “classy” style when she gets older, as her hair, make-up and clothing choices have become like a “uniform” to her.

She said: “I was doing a photo shoot and the make-up artist had made me up to have grey hair but I was still wearing the same clothes and had the same make-up. I was scanning me in the mirror and I just had this epiphany that I was perfect – I looked like a classy, old lady.

“I won’t have to change my look when I get older, it’ll work at any age. I’m not sure what Paris Hilton will be wearing when she gets to 70.

“My look is like a uniform to me, I know each morning what I’ll be doing with my make-up and hair, how long my hem line will be. I like to evolve my look, but I don’t feel compelled to update it.”

However, the raven-haired beauty – who has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood in the past – admitted she isn’t naturally blessed with a trim figure and “works hard” to look so glamorous.

Dita added in an interview with “I don’t try to tell people I’m naturally anything, I’m not going to tell you that I eat pizza all day and look like this – I don’t.

“I work hard to maintain a glamorous look, and to tell women that they can achieve it too. We all want to have a plump, juicy and luscious figures – I just try hard to stay fit.”

Twilight Breaking Dawn wedding felt natural for Kristen Stewart

By Andrea Petrou on November 15th, 2011

Kristen Stewart’s wedding in ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ felt like a real ceremony.

The 21-year-old-actress attended the black carpet premiere of the penultimate film in the series in Los Angeles last night with her co-star and boyfriend Robert Pattinson, and admitted she imagined their wedding in the movie was the real thing.

Speaking of her character Bella Swan’s ceremony with Robert’s vampire alter-ego Edward Cullen, she said: “I cleared my mind, I did a pretty good job at forgetting. I didn’t want to remember it for any weird, neurotic, actor-y thoughts.

“I really wanted to remember an experience that felt right for the moment. I don’t know, it felt very natural. It felt like, kind of a real ceremony to me.”

Robert was also struck by the wedding scenes which made him realise exactly what a huge event it is for a girl.

He told E! News: “She looked like she was so terrified, she was so amazing and everyone was looking at her. You suddenly realise how nerve-wracking it is for women.”

While Robert, 25, and Kristen talked about their marriage, co-star Taylor Lautner, 19, was on the receiving end of a proposal from one of the many fans who had lined the streets – and had even camped outside the city’s Nokia Theatre for days to get a chance of meeting their idols.

When asked what his response to the sign – which read “Wife Me Taylor” – was, he said: “I signed it for her. I guess that was my answer.”

The trio spent a considerable amount of time signing autographs for fans and Robert admitted he was overwhelmed by how many people had turned out for the premiere.

He told MTV: “It’s like an alternate reality. My everyday life is so boring, and then you go to these things and everyone thinks something cool is happening.”

By Andrea Petrou on November 15th, 2011

Rihanna surprised clubbers at a London nightclub by giving out sex advice.

The S&M singer was partying at Whisky Mist in Mayfair after her concert at The 02 arena on Sunday  to celebrate her brother Rorrey’s 22nd birthday and after Rihanna led the revellers in a singsong, she took it upon herself to offer some wise words for the bedroom.

She said: “I left home at 16 and had to learn to look after myself. But now we’re back friends stronger than ever. Always use a condom.”

Generous Rihanna splashed out on 15 bottles of champagne and six bottles of vodka for her brother and other revellers and then allowed Rorrey to continue partying with his friends and a bevy of beauties at her suite at The Savoy hotel.

A source said: “Rihanna is the best big sister. She sorted for all these girls to accompany her brother back to her hotel, along with friends of his too. They had a great time and she treated them like kings.”

Although the 23-year-old Barbadian superstar provided her brother with a great time, she disappointed some fans last night when she arrived on stage at her concert at The 02 an hour late.

Fans took to twitter to complain with one user roroism writing “When I met Beyonce she was everythin & more. @rihanna left me devasted & upset today. So unprofressional. I actually feel like Im guna cry. (sic)”

Lee Latchford Evans from recently reformed pop group Steps added: “Loving Rihanna tonight great performance & show. Shame she was 1hr late. Fans booing is not a good start. X (sic)”

Tamara Mellon quits Jimmy Choo

By Andrea Petrou on November 15th, 2011

Tamara Mellon has quit Jimmy Choo.

The entrepreneur – who founded the footwear and accessories brand in 1996 along with former cobbler Jimmy Choo – has stepped down as Chief Creative Officer of the company following its takeover and integration with private Italian luxury goods group Labelux.

The 44-year-old entrepreneur – who ceased to have any financial interest in the group after its $800 million acquisition in May – is set to be followed out of the company by current Chief Executive Joshua Schulman, who will complete a transition phase into 2012.

Labelux’s chief executive Reinhard Mieck is quoted as telling the Financial Times newspaper: “Jimmy Choo is an outstanding brand with enormous growth potential and the ability to deliver material growth synergies across our group.

“With a successful transition behind them, we respect their wish to move on to other challenges.”

Since Tamara and Jimmy set up the business it has grown from being a small company to a global brand, which sells handbags, scarves and fragrances, among other luxury items.

Earlier this year, Tamara – who was awarded an OBE in 2010 for her services to Britain’s fashion industry – explained she is “extremely proud” of the company’s heritage and put the success of the group down to its constant flow of “innovation and energy”.

She said: “Keeping innovation and energy flowing is key. I dreamed of creating the perfect luxury accessory house, one that captures the hearts of women around the world.

“Even now with everything that we have accomplished we are far from resting on our laurels, what excites me most is the thrill of the next project, the next idea.

“While I am enormously proud of our brand’s heritage, I know the best is yet to come.”

Miranda Kerr allows herself the occasional treat to eat

By Andrea Petrou on November 15th, 2011

Miranda Kerr refuses to deny herself anything.

The Victoria’s Secret model says she has always eaten healthily as she knows it’s very important for her body, but at the same time will allow herself the occasional treat.

The Australian beauty – who has a 10-month-old son, Flynn, with husband Orlando Bloom – said: “My grandparents had a vegetable patch and taught me a lot about growing food and eating organically. I eat super-healthily, lots of vegetables and fish, but that’s not just because I’m a model. It’s to give my body the fuel it needs. And I don’t deny myself anything. Life is about balance, and you have to be able to have some treats now and again – it’s good for you.”

As well as eating healthily, Miranda says she maintain her stunning figure by exercising regularly.

She told Britain’s Hello! Magazine: “I do a lot of yoga, pilates and strength training all year round. I also have a trainer who makes me focus on the butt area, with squats and butt-lifts with leg weights.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Christian Louboutin shoes make her “feel like a woman”.

The Victoria’s Secret model thinks it is “really worth” saving up for a pair of the red-lacquered sole footwear because they will automatically make girls appear “very sexy”.

She said: “I feel they make you look very sexy, the cuts are beautiful; the lines, the colours the embellishments.

“I think he managed to capture something so special for women, every girl should be lucky enough to have them. If you can save up for a pair put away a dollar a week. It’s worth it girls. It is really worth it.”

The ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ actress – who topped both FHM’s Sexiest Women List and Maxim’s Hot 100 List earlier this year – has coped well since becoming famous and even manages to “avoid” the attention that comes from living a showbiz lifestyle when she needs to.

The 24-year-old stunner added to Fox411’s Pop Tarts: “I am very lucky in my life so I don’t wish for anything I don’t have, and I actually manage to get around just fine. I’m just fine.

“It’s not too much, I manage to avoid it when it’s necessary, but I’m very thankful for everything.”

Nicole Richie designing a fashion line for QVC

By Andrea Petrou on November 14th, 2011

Nicole Richie is designing a fashion line for QVC.

The 30-year-old designer will further expand her work with a “cute” range of clothing for the home shopping network, which will launch in February.

A source told “The line is cute – it can be worn by teeny-tiny girls but also goes up to size XXXL. Nicole has a great fashion sense, and she’s very hands-on.”

The launch of the line will tie in with the premiere of reality TV show ‘Fashion Star’, on which Nicole – who has a line of womenswear called Winter Kate, an accessories line called House of Harlow 1960 and Nicole, her maternity collection – acts as a mentor for aspiring designers.

The reality TV star – who was recently named Influencer of the Year at Accessories Council Excellence (ACE) Awards for House of Harlow 1960 – recently said she designs for women who are not “afraid to take risks” and enjoy having “fun” with their wardrobes.

Describing her typical customer, she said: “[She is] a multitasker, a woman who wears many hats, someone who isn’t afraid to take risks and have fun with fashion.”

Kate Moss’ 13-year-old half sister Charlotte Moss makes her modelling debut

By Andrea Petrou on November 14th, 2011

Kate Moss and Jamie Hince

Kate Moss’ 13-year-old half sister has made her modelling debut.

Charlotte ‘Lottie’ Moss – daughter of Kate’s father Peter Moss and his second wife Inger – last month posed for her first test shoot, which was arranged by Sarah Doukas at Storm models, the agency who first discovered Kate at the age of 14.

Lottie’s dad Peter told the Daily Mail newspaper: “It’s early days really. Storm, Kate’s agent, felt that it was worth giving Lottie a test shoot and seeing how she turned out. She had a lovely time and she seemed to come out quite well – so everybody’s happy so far.

“It will be very strictly controlled because she’s not 14 yet so it’s very early days.

“It will all be left to Sarah and Simon at Storm to decide what the best way ahead is. So we’re going to have a chat with them later in the year, possibly before Christmas, just to decide how to go forward.

“It was a nice experience [for Lottie] to have a good photographer and the life of a photographic model, a day in the life as it were, but an exciting day for her.”

“Well, you have to take advantage of any opportunities that come along haven’t you? If things work out for Lottie and she eventually gets some work it could help her in her future.

“It’s getting harder and harder to get jobs, university and things like that – so if she can get a couple of jobs early on and get something behind her maybe it makes life easier.”

The pictures were taken by photographer Andrea Carter-Bowman.

Fashion insiders have rushed to praised Lottie’s look with Carole White, the founder of Premier Models saying: “Lottie looks beautiful and fresh – a very English rose look.”

“Generally you need the height. Kate is an exception to the rule because models need to be 5ft?9in to 5ft?11in. I think Lottie would make a lovely young model.”

Fashion expert Karen Kay added: “She’s even got a Cindy Crawford-style mole on her chin. She’s the full package. If she plays her cards right, she could eclipse Kate.”

Lottie first came to public attention when she was one of 15 bridesmaids at Kate’s wedding to Jamie Hince in July

Diane Kruger was shocked at being asked to be the face of Calvin Klein’s Beauty fragrance

By Andrea Petrou on November 14th, 2011

Diane Kruger thought Calvin Klein bosses were “kidding” when they asked her to be the face of their Beauty fragrance.

The 35-year-old actress – who began her modelling career in Paris at the age of 15 – believed the public would adopt a, “Who does she think she is?” attitude if she fronted the brand.

She explained: “It’s very cool to be the face of a perfume, that’s a very flattering thing. When Calvin Klein asked me to be the face of a perfume called ‘Beauty’ I was like, ‘Who are you kidding?’ when they told me the name.

“I was thinking people are going to say, ‘Who does she think she is from Helen of Troy to ‘Beauty’?’ Then with all the work I’ve done for cosmetics companies too it becomes very global.”

The German-born beauty admitted she is pleased to now have more of a say in which campaigns she fronts, as she likes the idea of making products “accessible to all women over the world”.

Diane added to The Independent newspaper: “From my modelling days, I have relationships with all these people and it’s kind of a cool thing that I still do that as well. It’s better these days as I now have more of say in what I do and so I don’t sign with people that I don’t stand behind.

“I like the idea of accessibility, coming from a lower-middle-class background myself, I feel like beauty and products should be accessible to women all over the world.”

Twilight starlet Kristen Stewart is a “jeans and T-shirt kind of girl.”

By Andrea Petrou on November 8th, 2011

Kristen Stewart is a “jeans and T-shirt kind of girl.”

The ‘Twilight’ beauty loves wearing designer dresses for film premieres and glamorous showbiz parties, but admits she’s happiest in comfortable, everyday clothes the rest of the time.

She told SkyView magazine: “I like fashion because it’s part of my work. I dive into the new trends when I have to, but I’m more of jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.”

Kristen, 21, also loves second hand clothes and admits she scours vintage stores in the Los Angeles for unusual T-shirts whenever she gets the chance.

She added: “In Los Angeles I like to go to vintage stores, I look for funny T-shirts. I’m very casual when I’m not working, but I think everybody should have their own style, even if they’re going to the gym.”

Kristen’s relaxed fashion sense is something she shares with her boyfriend, ‘Twilight’ co-star Robert Pattinson, who is also a fan of pre-worn bargains.

He said: “I like kind of s***ty clothes most of the time. I like second hand. That’s another thing. I can’t really go into second hand stores to get new clothes any more so I end up wearing the same thing every day.

“I wish I could shop in vintage stores the whole time. But because a lot of paparazzi follow me around, it can be difficult.”

Cheryl Cole’s malaria battle “opened” her eyes to healthy living

By Andrea Petrou on November 8th, 2011

Cheryl Cole’s malaria battle “opened” her eyes to healthy living.

The former X Factor judge caught the disease after visiting Africa last year with then-boyfriend Derek Hough, and although she was in hospitalised she insists it did benefit her as it made her focus more on the important things in life.

She said: “It opened my eyes to health and things I hadn’t focused on before. It’s now less about work, work, work and more about taking time to chill and be with my friends and family.”

The 28-year-old singer was left bed-ridden by the effects of malaria and she has revealed the disease “ate away” her muscles and turned her complexion yellow.

In an interview with InStyle magazine, she said: “I was yellow because of my kidneys – it was a bit like jaundice. It was hard to find a matching foundation, let me tell you!

“I had to take good care of myself and I was told to stop exercising and to gain weight to get well. I just ate everything.”

Meanwhile, Cheryl is planning a girly holiday with her Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding after the blonde star completes her rehab treatment in the US.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Cheryl has been there for Sarah massively. They’ve had some heartfelt conversations on the phone. Cheryl can identify with Sarah because she’s hit rock bottom in the past too.

“It’s been a long time since they’ve spent real quality time together so they’ve decided to jet off for a break. They thought America will be best as they can slip under the radar out there. Obviously it will be a wholesome holiday.”

Lindsay Lohan’s nude Playboy shoot was inspired by Marilyn Monroe

By Andrea Petrou on November 8th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan’s nude Playboy shoot was inspired by Marilyn Monroe.

The troubled actress – who was released from jail yesterday after serving just four-and-a half hours of a 30-day sentence – has posed naked for the iconic men’s magazine and its founder Hugh Hefner says it pays homage to her idol – who died in August 1962 aged 36 from a suspected drugs overdose.

He told ‘The Insider': “It’s a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy.”

Hugh also confirmed Lindsay, 25, bared all for the shoot but it was done in a “classy” way.

He said: “Oh, yes, she’s naked. And classy, very classy.”

The ‘Mean Girls’ star was paid almost $1 million to strip off for the publication, but she is due to re-shoot some photos later this week.

Lindsay was initially offered $750,000 by Playboy, but turned it down until she was given a higher price.

Previous stars who have posed for the magazine include Pamela Anderson, La Toya Jackson and Drew Barrymore.
