Wedding Dress Worth




THE Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress has raised £10 million in ticket sales, after becoming the star attraction of Buckingham Palace's annual summer opening last year. Over 620,000 members of the public attended the display, which focused the gown as its centerpiece, with visitor numbers rising 52 per cent higher than that of the previous year.

Director of the Royal Collection Jonathan said "Unprecedented numbers came to see the Duchess' wedding dress, as the centerpiece of a special display celebrating the role of British design,”

Visitors were also able to see the Robinson Pelham diamond earrings given to Catherine by her parents for the wedding day, as well as her handmade silk shoes and the royal wedding cake designed by Fiona Cairns.

The news comes despite the Queen famously referring to the exhibit as "very creepy" - in reference to the way in which the gown, Cartier tiara and veil were displayed on a headless mannequin.

Pirelli Pregnant Debutant

ADRIANA LIMA - the first pregnant woman who never appears in the iconic Pirelli calendar, as seen in new images revealed on the Vanity Fair Italia website today. The Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima confirmed that she was expecting her second baby with her Serbian basketball player husband, Marko Jaric, in March - can be seen baring her baby bump in a black crop top.

Lima joins 10 other beauties, each chosen for their involvement in various charitable foundations, including Elisa Sednaoui, Liya Kebede, Petra Nemcova, Isabeli Fontana and Kyleigh Kuhn. This time, the calendar has been photographed by Steve McCurry, who took the famous shot of the green-eyed Afghan Girl that appeared on the cover of the National Geographic in 1985. He follows in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld and Mario Sorrenti.

Duchess Catherine's Hats


Two of the hats of the Duchess of Cambridge each recovered over double their estimated prices by asking an auction held yesterday in Bermondsey.

Black and White hat by The Phillip Somerville was sold for £3,120 - compared to its £1,000 - £1,500 estimate, which is worn by the Duchess to Prince William’s Order of the Garter presentation in June 2008; While the black Aurora hat, seen on the 30-year-old royal at friend Harry Meade’s wedding in October 2010, sold for £3,600 - rather than its £1,000 - £1,500 estimate. Both the hats are bought by an American bidder, were borrowed for the occasion.

Although the Duchess' wardrobe has made countless headlines this week (reports have suggested that her annual fashion spending was over £30,000), the Queen's eternal style has also had a powerful impact on the shopping world of late. Over the Jubilee weekend, Her Majesty stepped out in three custom-made Lautner handbags - causing the label's sales to rise by 58 per cent.

Dolce & Gabbana Couture





DOLCE & GABBANA is going to introduce its very own first ever couture collection next month, which will be showed during a presentation in Sicily on July 9. The pair hinted that they were planning a bespoke line at the Vogue Festival in April.

"Now the D&G label and Dolce & Gabbana are one, we can have pieces from an opening price to a high price," said Gabbana. "We have a new fine jewellery collection; one for men - and we also want to make something more special in the future, so couture? It's possible."

Anais - The Next Kate Moss





ANAIS GALLAGHER is following the footsteps of Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia Gerber in becoming a new model star. The 12-year-old beauty clicked in her first photo shoot, with her mother Meg Matthews to accompany her.

Anais Gallagher – who is the daughter of Matthews and her former husband Noel Gallagher - strikes fashion headlines in January this year, when her mother Meg tweeted a black and white picture of Anais taken by Mario Testino. With her heart-shaped face, loose, flowing hair and high cheekbones, Anais was quickly hyped as the next Kate Moss - comments her mother has decided not to respond to.

Gallagher is currently signed with Select Models, the agency that also represents Agyness Deyn and Natasha Poly, although she will not commence professional modeling jobs until she is older. Her first shoot (photographed by Alisa Connan), sees her blowing bubbles, while wearing a pink varsity-style jacket.

Kate's Extraordinary




Kate Moss is set to star in a one-off special of Absolutely Fabulous, in support of Sport Relief on March 23. The supermodel joins close friend Stella McCartney and Emma Bunton, as well as sportsmen Colin Jackson and Linford Christie, who will all make guest appearances.

Last month The British beauty teamed up with her friend McCartney, as she modeled the designer’s latest collection at her London Fashion Week Show. She also supported her friend at the turning-on of her Christmas lights in December 2011, at which Ab Fab character Eddie was the guest of honor.

CHARLIZE THERON’s New Role




After adopting a baby boy, CHARLIZE THERON has become a mother for the first time.

"Charlize Theron has adopted a child (a baby boy)," said the spokesperson for the Oscar-winning actress. "She is the proud mum of a healthy baby boy named Jackson" he added.

Theron, who broke up from long-term boyfriend Stuart Townsend in January 2011, has previously spoken about her desire to be a mother.

"I want a baby," said Theron to Germany's In Touch magazine last year. "If it would happen tomorrow I would be very happy... There are so many unwanted children on this earth and it's our job to care for them. And if we don't we're doing the world a disservice."
