Fashion Police: Brad and Angie’s His and Her Tuxes

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities,

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt at the BAFTAs

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt must think that couples who dress together are those who stay together...

The A-list couple were spotted on the BAFTA red carpet today wearing tuxes. While Angie's was clearly more suited for feminine wear (plunging neckline, 3/4 sleeves, see-through blouse, and undone bowtie hanging around her neck), Brad opted for a fairly traditional look. Is their matching formal wear adorably and fashionably cute or just downright annoying?

Will L’Wren Scott Design Angelina’s Wedding Dress?

L'Wren ScottAmong the dozens of rumors circulating the Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt wedding, the most talked about one at the moment claims that L'Wren Scott has been tapped to design the A-list actress' wedding gown.

"[Angelina]'s been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn't important to her... Of all the people she’s met with she feels L’Wren is the one that understands her body the most," a source said.

The rumor isn't so far-fetched, considering Angelina, 37, has worn some of Scott's creations on the red carpet.

"Angelina wanted someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns. L’Wren is famed for designing clothes to suit taller, thin women like herself," the source added.

On top of that, fittings would be quite easy considering L'Wren lives in the house next to the one Angelina and Brad purchased in Surrey earlier this year!

Items Du Jour: Rihanna on Vogue, Lana Del Rey for H&M

Miley Cyrus+ Angelina Jolie was photographed on her way to meeting Turkish leaders to discuss the crisis in Syria looking like she just walked off the runway. Or perhaps maybe she just borrowed the loose, flowing, ground-length gown from her latest film, Maleficent.

+ Elsewhere, Miley Cyrus was snapped up wearing a black crop top with a pair of pants that could easily have been her pajamas; however, she strangely seems to be pulling the look off. Perhaps this is the magical work of her new, daring 'do?

+ Avid Twitter poster Rihanna broke her own news that she'll be covering Vogue a second time; Annie Leibovitz is again set to photograph the singer for the fashion glossy.

+ H&M released a behind-the-scenes video of the upcoming Lana Del Rey campaign, which was shot as a music video of the singer covering "Blue Velvet." Of course, because no one wants to be all that original these days, it looks very much like the David Lynch film of the same name.

The In the Land of Blood and Honey director wowed in a floor-length cream satin strapless gown with a side-split cut up to her thigh.

Angelina kept her hair and make-up simple with an elegant bun and bright red lipstick.

The 36-year-old actress wasn't the only star to impress in a pale creation on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with Charlize Theron, Elle Macpherson and Kate Beckinsale all wearing white dresses. However, not everyone shied away from bright shades with George Clooney's girlfriend Stacy Keibler in a red Valentino gown, Reese Witherspoon wearing a scarlet Zac Posen creation with Emma Stone dressed in a plunging plum Lanvin ensemble and Tina Fey opting for a purple dress.

Low Maintenance Angelina Jolie

Angelina JolieWant the secret to looking like Angelina Jolie? Don't brush your hair on a daily basis.

The Kung Fu Panda 2 actress - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt - is regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world, but insists she keeps her efforts to look good to a minimum.

"In my life, I hardly brush my hair very often. I try to be as low-maintenance as possible because of my kids, so I can just get up and get ready and do things and not take too much time."

In keeping her with her no-fuss beauty regime, it was previously claimed that Angelina keeps her lips in good condition by using Shea Terra's Menthe Orange Organic Shea Lip Butter, which costs just $4. The lip balm boasts a variety of unusual products including raw golden beeswax from Uganda, virgin coconut cream oil, African potato, Namibian tsamma melon seed oil, rooibos, chamomile flowers and wild Namibian plum oil.

"Angelina stockpiles the lip butter to preserve her to-die-for pout. She likes it because it also helps to freshen your breath and Angelina hates chewing gum," a source revealed.

Angelina Jolie with Robert Procop

Actress Angelina Jolie has teamed with Robert Procop to create a new jewelry line. Jolie has designed a collection with statement stones for Robert Procop Exceptional Jewels and wore one of the pieces - a faceted black spinel necklace bezel set in rose gold - to the Berlin premiere of her film Salt earlier this year.

"Angelina has very classic style. These are pieces she wears herself," Robert, a former Asprey's chief executive who has designed for the actress for 10 years, told WWD.

Pieces from the collection - which will be priced individually - will be sold privately through the designer's network of clients, with all proceeds going to the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, a charity co-founded by Jolie that aims to help children who are the victims of war and natural disasters.

Victoria Beckham Wants Tilda Swinton, Angelina Jolie

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers,

Tilda Swinton at the OscarsVictoria Beckham wants to dress Tilda Swinton. The singer-turned-fashion designer has already seen a host of female celebrities wear her designs and admits it would be a dream come true if the Oscar-winning actress donned one of her creations at a prestigious event.

"I'd like to dress Tilda Swinton, I'm obsessed with her, and also Angelina Jolie, Kate Bosworth and Michelle Obama - she would look great in the dresses. I'm flattered whenever I see a woman wearing one of my dresses - they don't have to be famous - and it's always a great compliment," Victoria said when speaking about who she would like to dress.

Victoria says celebrities often ask to wear one of her dresses, but she is very careful about how many she gives out because she doesn't want anyone in the same outfit.

"There has been competition to wear the same dress but I deal with it in a diplomatic way. I know what it's like - you don't want to wear the same thing as someone else. All the requests come through me. I make sure I manage it well so there's no embarrassment of people wearing the same thing. I don't want people ending up in those 'who wore it better' features, unless it's me because I wear them first. It's been amazing. The response has been breathtaking."

Joan Collins Frowns Upon Plastic Surgery

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty,

A very young Joan CollinsActress Joan Collins thinks women who have cosmetic surgery look “ghastly.”

The 77 year-old doesn’t see the appeal of going under the surgeon’s knife and finds it “terrifying” people will go to so many lengths in a bid to hold on to their youthful looks.

“Women who turn to cosmetic procedures look ghastly. They don’t look like themselves. I quite like the way I look, I’m quite happy with the way I look and I really don’t want to change it. In front of the camera my skin probably isn’t nearly as good as it used to be. But, I mean, what the hell, everybody’s got to get older. I think there’s something rather terrifying about people who are in their 50s or 60s trying to look 30 or 40.”

Joan also hit out at today’s female celebrities, saying they need to look more glamorous. “When I was young, everybody on screen was gorgeous. I have to say, there aren’t that many good looking actresses around today. I mean, there’s and there’s… Angelina Jolie. Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn’t call her beautiful. She’s no Ava Gardner or Lana Turner. I think that is why Cheryl Cole is so popular, because she is just so pretty and the public are starved of gorgeous people.”
