Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett To Star in H&M Holiday Campaign

 Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will star together in H&M’s holiday campaign, according to WWD.

The unlikely pair will appear in a commercial for the clothing brand, which will debut globally at the end of November. There will also be print, outdoor, and online ads as well.  The actual commercial will feature a track from Gaga and Tony’s upcoming collaborative album, “Cheek to Cheek.” The album, which will feature classic jazz tracks, is due for release Sept. 23.
H&M has used many A-list celebrities for their ad campaigns, including Beyoncé, Lana del Rey, Johnny Depp, Tyra Banks, and more! Gaga herself has been involved with H&M, appearing at the opening of H&M’s Times Square flagship in New York in 2013.
I’m excited to see the commercial and the ads, as well as hear Gaga and Tony’s music!

KimYe Has Karl Lagerfeld Wrapped Around Their Fingers: North West Is Now A Baby Model!

northwest

It seems as if KimYe have Mr. Karl Lagerfeld wrapped around their fingers. And Kim and Kanye are already throwing their child into the public limelight to make that money of her own.

Baby North West is officially a baby model and has made her debut in the fall issue of CR Fashion Book. I can’t help but admit that the 13-month-old tot looks adorable in the black-and-white photo, which captures Miss North wearing a Chanel brooch and bag along with Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings.

On the photo above the fashionista reads, “North West. The Future,’ with Karl Lagerfeld’s quote, “It’s never too early to care about fashion!”

Yes, she does look cute. And, are you really that surprised that she is already rocking a fashion ad?

Audrey Hepburn’s Granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, Covers Harper’s Bazaar

Talk about identical! Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter is the spitting image of the icon, covering Harper’s Bazaar in a great tribute to the late actress.

Emma Ferrer, the daughter of Ms. Hepburn’s son Sean, was featured on the magazine’s subscriber covers (The newsstand covers feature Penelope Cruz, Linda Evangelista, and Lady Gaga). Interestingly enough, the show was photographed by Michael Avedon, grandson of fashion photographer Richard Avedon, with whom Ms. Hepburn had a relationship years ago.

Currently an art student at the Florence Academy of Art, the 20-year-old spoke to the mag about her legendary grandmother, who, sadly, died before she was born. “I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline — I believe this was before I understood that she was famous,” Emma said. “But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had. As a child I couldn’t really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family.”

When asked if she had anything of  her grandmother’s, Emma said, “”All I can think of are her cashmere turtlenecks, which I adore and wear all throughout the winter. And a white antique stuffed teddy bear.”

They look so much alike! The poses and outfits chosen were perfect to match Aubrey Hepburn’s style. Check out Harper’s Bazaar for the full interview and photos from the shoot!

What Sofia Vergara Spends on Beauty: You May Be Surprised!

It’s time. The super-honest Modern Family star reveals her hour-plus primping routine and the DIY move she secretly does in her car.

Via Via Redbook Mag:

Sofia Vergara on ever considering plastic surgery:
“Why not? I mean, not yet, but maybe [I’ll do] my under-eye bags in my 50s. We’ll see what I need, but I’m not saying no.”

When Redbook asked if there are days where she doesn’t feel like getting glammed up:
“Not really, no. I don’t always curl my hair or wear false eyelashes, but I do full makeup every day and I always have. It takes me about an hour and 15 minutes to get ready. I take my time – I like showering, scrubbing, bubbling. Everyone is always rushing me! They’ll lie about when an event starts to try to get me there on time. But I always know, so I don’t give a damn.”

The part of getting ready that she doesn’t like:
“Manicures. I don’t have the patience for someone to give me one. So I’ll paint my nails in the car on the way to the Golden Globes or to the airport.”

Lily Aldridge’s #LessIsMore Acting Debut

lilyaldridge

Lily Aldridge shows us why less is more in a clumsy video where she shows off her…errrr kitchen skills. Featuring the new, simple, sexy collections from Victoria’s Secret this #LessIsMore is the 2nd installment in a two-part series. Let’s face it, does it really matter what Lily does in this video? She could be quilting or twiddling her thumbs and still look amazing. Yes, I’d buy whatever she is wearing as long as I could look like them when I put them on.

Check out the video below.

Kanye West Talks Wedding & Love for Kim Kardashian in GQ

Kanye West recently snagged the cover of the most recent issue of GQ, and was open as always about his recent wedding to Kim Kardashian, clearing up rumors that he gave himself a 45-minute toast, and speaking out on Jay Z and Beyoncé not showing up. Check out some of the highlights from the interview below!

If he feels like TMZ is trying to “de-fang” him when they mock him:
“I don’t have fangs. I’m a porcupine. I’m a blowfish. Like, I’m a — what’s the fish that blows up? Yeah. I’m a blowfish. I’m not a shark, I’m a blowfish. So that perfect example about me hitting my head, it’s like a blowfish. I wasn’t coming out of my house going to a paparazzi’s house to attack them. I’m defending my family in front of my own house. I’m defending my name as someone’s screaming something negative at me. That’s a blowfish. People have me pinned as a shark or a predator in some way, and in no way am I that. I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone. I want to defend people. I want to help people.”

On rumors he gave a 45-minute toast to himself:
“And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the ’60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast. And I had to say this in a position where I, from the art world, am marrying Kim. And how we’re going to fight to raise the respect level for celebrities so that my daughter can live a more normal life. She didn’t choose to be a celebrity. But she is. So I’m going to fight to make sure she has a better life.”

On Jay Z and Beyonce not attending his wedding:
“All that, I wouldn’t even speak on. It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me.”

On who is responsible for his wedding photo garnering more likes than any other photo in Instagram’s history:
“It’s because of Kim. Meaning there’s no photo that I would have put up by myself, or next to one of my smarty friends, that would have got that amount of likes … Now the thing that is the most popular is also communicating the highest level of creativity. The concept of Kimye has more cultural significance than what Page Six could write.”

On why he married Kim:
“Like they said in ‘Step Brothers’: Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur. Kim is this girl who f**king turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around … You mean to tell me that this girl with this f**king body and this face is also into style, and she’s a nice person, and she has her own money and is family-oriented? That’s just as cool as a f**king fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen.”

Kanye clearly loves him some Kim K! Read the full story here!

Vanessa Hudgens Returns as Face of Bongo Fashion Brand

Vanessa Hudgens is back at Bongo, returning for a second time as the face of the brand! And, this time around, she’s flaunting her natural beauty…quite literally without any retouching on her pics!  The sneak peeks for the new campaign were released today, and Vanessa looked naturally gorgeous!

“I love that the final ad images are unretouched,” the actress said in a press release. “It’s so important for girls to remember that real beauty shines from within and I’m so proud that Bongo is choosing to send such a positive message with this campaign.” The brand, which caters to junior sizes, tries to uplift girls and inspire them to feel confident no matter what size they are.

Vanessa was spotted in one picture rocking long blond waves, under a black floppy hat, wearing a loose floral top and high-waisted jeans. In another pic, the actress sports a red jacket and belted bird-print dress, playing in her hair and flashing a sexy smile (See more on E! Online!).

Other celebs that have been a part of Bongo include Annasophia Robb, Nicole Richie, and Rachel Bilson. Even Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale, stars of ABC Family’s hit series Pretty Little Liars, rocked a joint campaign back in 2012.

Vanessa is definitely looking amazing in these pics!

Kerry Washington to Launch Scandal Fashion Line!

Great news Gladiators: Now those of you like me who are in LOVE with Olivia Pope’s fashion on the show can pick up a few pieces inspired by her style! Kerry Washington and costume designer Lyn Paolo are collaborating with The Limited to launch Scandal fashion line!

“By creating a line inspired by the show, we are introducing a collection that embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real-life gladiators and everyday fashionistas,” Kerry said in a press release. “The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it.”

The new mom worked with The Limited’s head of design Elliot Staples and Lyn, who comes up with the costuming for Scandal.  “It’s been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production from picking buttons, choosing fabrics and weighing in on hair and makeup people,” Kerry said to WWD. “People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show,” she said.

Check out a first look at the Scandal clothing collection launching at The Limited this fall.

“The whole team took great care in creating a collection that reflects Olivia Pope’s unique style. We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view,” Lyn said in a press release. “I am so excited and hopeful that our Gladiators are as excited about the collection as we are; it has been such tremendous fun and such an honor to design for the amazing characters that Shonda Rhimes has created and now to help make their style accessible to all.”

Prices for the pieces are set to start at $49. Not bad at all! The line is set to make its debut in late September in The Limited stores nationwide and online. I will definitely be on the lookout! Ladies, we are sure to find some great pieces!

Zendaya is the New Face of Madonna’s ‘Material Girl’

Zendaya Coleman is definitely on top of the world right now. After winning her role as Aaliyah in an upcoming Lifetime biopic (despite the controversy around it), the Disney star has another big gig as the new face of Madonna‘s “Material Girl” teenage fashion brand!

The singer is the next face of the brand, taking the spot of Rita Ora, and joining the ranks of former material girls Taylor Momsen and Georgia May Jagger. Zendaya recently shot ads for the  brand’s fall campaign, playfully smiling and posing on the Coney Island boardwalk in Brooklyn.

“Zendaya exudes a confident, free spirit. We love having her as the new face of Material Girl,” Madonna said in a press release. Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon, also a collaborator behind the brand, is also a huge supporter of the teenage singer. “I love how Zendaya makes her own style rules to fit her personality — that’s who Material Girl is all about, being yourself to the fullest,” she added.

Zendaya, of course, was thrilled that she was picked by the “dynamic mother/daughter duo,” and gave a shoutout to the brand and the Material Girl herself saying in a press release of her own, “Material Girl embraces having fun with fashion and being confident in your own skin… and who does that better than Madonna?”

Well good for her! Zendaya is a very pretty girl and is definitely perfect to be the face of the brand. She’s in the demographic, she’s cute, and she’s fun! Plus, she has a huge following, so it’s definitely smart of the brand to add her on. Now Disney fans may just want to buy more of these clothes!

James Franco Talks Monogamy, His Favorite Sexiest Movie and Social Media

james-franco

Let me just say, I love me some James Franco.

James Franco is featured in ELLE’s June ‘Cherchez La Femme’ discussing he talks monogamy, technology and what movie he finds sexy.

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On finding Last Tango in Paris to be a very sexy movie:
“Brando is inevitably sexy. When he’s completely uninhibited both with what he does and what he says, then he reveals a being full of intelligence who moves like a dancer and speaks like a poet.”

On believing in monogamy:
“I mean, I believe in it if that’s what you want. There a lot to be gained from various scenarios. A certain kind of intimacy and trust. But it’s not to say that monogamy is necessarily the ultimate.”

On regretting a text message that he’s sent a woman:
“Um, yeah. I have to remind myself not to text when I’m angry. Don’t do any social networking when angry.”

Candice Swanepoel Had a Plan (Kind Of) If She Failed At Modeling

candace-swanepoel1

Victoria’s Secret supermodel Candice Swanepoel appears in Marie Claire’s June issue (on stands May 20th). In the photo shoot, she brings her boyish-meets-boho vibe to the shores of Miami. And in the interview she dishes on what it means to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel and what she would be doing if she would have failed at landing modeling gigs.

Here are the highlights via Marie Claire below:

Childhood hobby: “I studied ballet when I was growing up. It has helped a lot with modeling because I think about all parts of my body, from my fingers to my toes.”

If she weren’t a model: “I think I would have continued with ballet, or maybe I would have become a veterinarian.”

On being a Victoria’s Secret Angel: “It comes with a different kind of responsibility. It’s not just about posing for shoots. People know your name and your personality.”

Hidden talent: “I am very good at pretending that I am not nervous!”

Chrissy Teigen Talks Her First Night With John Legend, Craziest Place She and John Made Whoopie

And I’m not talking Whoopi Goldberg yo.

Model Chrissy Teigen looks fun and fearless on the cover of June Cosmopolitan, on newsstands nationwide May 6th. She wows on not one but three covers this month, and takes it all off in her spread, dipping her famous curves in a soapy bathtub as she comes clean about her romance with hubby John Legend. In her interview, she opens up about their first night together, the craziest place they’ve ever had sex, and taking her career to the next level.

Check out the highlights via Cosmo below:

On hooking up with John Legend on the set of his hit 2009 single “Stereo,” and building their relationship:
“I’m not going to lie. We hooked up. [When he went on tour] I left him be himself for a while. The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, There’s so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal, because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him.”

On PDA with her husband:
“We’re by no means freaky-deaky, but let’s just say, we’re open to things. We’re very okay with PDA. When we go to a restaurant, he loves when I wear a dress, so he can do some upper-thigh rubbing.”

On the craziest place she and her husband have had sex:
“We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that.”

On making a name for herself:
“I got so lucky that I met Brooklyn Decker and she [hooked me up with] Sports Illustrated. I got so lucky that I met John, who propelled my career. I’m not delusional: that definitely helped.”
