Kim Kardashian Auctions Clothes for Charity

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Clothing, Style, Charity,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKim Kardashian is selling her clothes on eBay to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has put a selection of items on the auction site in order to raise money for the non-profit organization International Medical Corps to help victims of the devastating cyclone, which has killed more than 4,000 people in the Philippines this month.

However, instead of donating the entire proceeds, she's only giving 10 per cent of the sales to the charity.

The 33-year-old beauty - who has a reported net worth of $65 million - took to her Twitter page yesterday to share the link to her personal website. "Hi guys, this is a very special auction because a portion of the proceeds of my eBay auction are going to International Medical Corps, a nonprofit organization that provides critical health services on remote islands where families are struggling to access medical care and basic resources like food, clean drinking water and vital medications. The proceeds will go directly to the communities they're serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives. My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. Check out my eBay auction here and support those who need our help in the Philippines. Xo. [sic]," she wrote.

Cinecast: Leto Gets Really Method, Schwartzman Cast in ‘Jurassic World’?

Lynne Ramsay+ In order to really get a feel for his role as a trans woman in The Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto reportedly remained in character for the duration of production. In addition to meeting with people in the trans community, he waxed most of his body hair and learned to apply his own makeup. Perhaps his intense method will pay off in the end, as his performance has attracted some Oscar buzz already.

+ Four theaters in Sweden have applied and displayed the result of the Bechdel Test to their current screening films. Those that pass the test (achieved if the film features two female characters who talk about something other than a man) are screened on Sundays. It may not seem like a lot, but it's more than what we're doing here in the States for better female representation in film.

+ Rumors are going around that Jason Schwartzman is set to appear in the upcoming Jurassic World, which is a relaunch of the Jurassic Park franchise. Schwartzman's rep has yet to confirm (nor deny!) the claim.

Lady Gaga Defends Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga at the VMAs

Lady Gaga is the latest star to defend Miley Cyrus after her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards. The "Applause" singer also took to the stage at the annual event and insisted those criticizing the "We Can't Stop" singer's controversial performance should "lighten up" and understand what pop music is all about.

"I don't like to pass judgement on Miley Cyrus. Generally, people need to lighten up about pop music, it's about entertainment. It is here to make you smile and make you happy. Especially in America there is an excessive dragging of female artists and I don't want to contribute to that. I do things that are polarizing sometimes but that's what it's all about," she said.

Prince Harry Spotted Shopping at Discount Retailer

Prince Harry at TK MaxxLike the rest of us commoners, it looks as though Prince Harry can't resist a good deal when he sees one, either.

Dressed inconspicuously in a cap, plain sweater, and blue jeans, the 28 year-old looked like any other customer when he was photographed shopping at British designer discount store TK Maxx (known as TJ Maxx on our side of the Atlantic). The British royal must have been taking cues from his sister-in-law, Duchess Catherine, who is known for recycling her clothes and mixing high fashion labels with more affordable pieces.

Having spent 30 minutes in the store - where, according to other customers, he was "relaxed and chatty" - Harry emerged with "T-shirts, a hoodie, other clothing and an iPhone case" in a plastic bag (clearly not opting for being very green that day).

Though it's not a stretch to see the Duchess shopping at such a store considering her more humble background, it is rather nice to see that even a prince isn't above saving some cash!

Cinecast: New ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer, Kate Hudson Cast in Zach Braff Film

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake+ Even though people are still recovering from throwing their money at Star Trek Into Darkness this weekend and Iron Man 3 the two weekends before that, Warner Bros. wanted to remind them that they still ought to spend even more of it on Man of Steel, which comes out next month. Hence, the new trailer.

+ Justin Timberlake has proven to everyone each time he's showed up to the Cannes Film Festival that he's not only one of the most talented musicians, dancers, and actors around today, but that he dresses better than anyone else. No, really.

+ Now that Mandy Patinkin has signed on to star in Zach Braff's Kickstarter-funded film, stars like Kate Hudson and Anna Kendrick are taking note and jumping on the bandwagon.

+ Since it feels like years since we last heard about the film adaptation of Ender's Game, the marketing team behind the project decided to throw fans a bone by releasing a new promo poster featuring Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield (who strangely resembles Elijah Wood in it at first glance).

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Celebrate Anniversary at Disneyland

Mariah Carey and Nick CannonIf there was an award for Most Adorable Vow Renewal Photo, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon would nab it in a heartbeat.

The pair celebrated their fifth anniversary (and their children's second birthday) at Disneyland on Tuesday (to the dismay of everyone who wanted to go that day, considering the entire park was shut down for the event) - Cinderella style. Carey dressed up as a princess while Cannon went as Prince Charming; their twins Monroe and Moroccan were styled in miniature versions of their parents' outfits (cute at first, but a little weird at the same time if you really think about it).

The singer and American Idol judge replicated the fairy tale - naturally - down to arriving in a pumpkin carriage. "Slowly making our way to the freezing cold guests #donthatemebecauseimasiva #cinderella," she wrote on Twitter.

How will they be able to top this for their next wedding anniversary?

Keira Knightley Marries James Righton

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music, Weddings, Clothing, Style,

Keira Knightley and James RightonKeira Knightley married James Righton in front of 11 guests in France today. The couple - who got engaged in May 2012 after meeting through mutual pal Alexa Chung - exchanged vows shortly before midday in a low-key ceremony at the town hall in Mazan, 67 miles from Marseilles, before speeding back to her family's nearby $5 million vineyard for their reception in a silver Renault Clio.

"It was a very moving ceremony. Keira looked extremely moved by the whole thing - there were certainly tears of happiness. It was sunny day without a cloud in the sky. There were cheers of 'Well done, Keira' when she came out, but there were so few people present so they didn't make much noise. It was amusing to see them being driven away in a battered old Renault Clio - it certainly looked as though it had seen better days," a source said.

The 28-year-old Anna Karenina star wore a custom-made short strapless dress, believed to have been created by Karl Lagerfeld, pale pink ballet flats, a cropped Chanel jacket and a delicate floral garland around her head.

Rihanna to Launch American ‘Styled To Rock’

RihannaRihanna is bringing her Styled To Rock TV show to the US. The production - which sees designers battle it out to create a stage outfit for the singing star - was axed after one series on Sky Living in the UK, but the "Diamonds" singer will now partner with the Style Network to resurrect it in the US.

"Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career. I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work," she said in a statement.

The UK show was hosted by Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts, but the celebrity line-up has yet to be announced for the new show. Rihanna herself only appeared in three episodes before it was dropped after failing to draw in enough viewers and production crew also blamed the hectic schedule of the pop stars who took part for causing problems.
