+ Considering she has both the face and body for high fashion, it's no wonder that actress Rooney Mara has signed with Dior to lend her face to their Down Town fragrance campaign. Naturally, her face is so gorgeously distracting that it's barely apparent that the photo is an ad for a perfume.
+ Model Doutzen Kroes imitates Angelina Jolie's famous 2010 Oscar dress, showing off some serious leggage at the Cannes Film Festival in Atelier Versace (albeit, looking somewhat like a superhero).
+ Despite her doctor's orders to avoid tight-fitting shoes, a very pregnant Kim Kardashian was spotted desperately trying to squeeze into her Givenchy heels.
+ Harper's Bazaar features supermodel Christy Turlington on next month's cover, which notes that she's still fabulous at 44 - as if we still didn't need reminding since she turned 40.
Kim Kardashian is probably one of the most scrutinized pregnant celebrities these days, with folks all over the internet checking paparazzi photos for her latest maternity look. Her Met Gala appearance last Sunday was no exception, though I'm starting to truly believe from this red carpet look that she sparks and embraces such attention.
Dressed from neck to toe in a Givenchy floral number with matching gloves, the reality star looks like she could blend right into some tacky wallpaper or a sofa (a far cry from the party's punk theme).
But the head creative behind Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci, comes to Kim's defense, crowning her “the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career.” Not sure if that's much of an achievement, considering he doesn't seem to dress many pregnant women at all!
Tisci also explained his decision to envelop the expectant mother in roses: “To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers.”

Kanye West irritated Met Ball organizers by "screeching" through his performance.
The "All of the Lights" rapper - who was accompanied to the star-studded annual Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday by his pregnant fiancee Kim Kardashian - was one of the musical stars who took the stage at the event, but left organizers and guests scratching their heads by playing several unfamiliar tracks from his new album.
Kanye, who was sporting a bejewelled mask, began his set after Blondie performed some of their most popular tracks, and "started screaming" according to one onlooker. "He played all new tracks that no one knew from his new album, and none of the crowd favorites. His songs were basically screeching into the microphone," the source added to the New York Post newspaper.
Another guest suggested the controversial musician's strange performance would have not been part of the plan for the A-list event. "Every minute of that gala is programmed, and Kanye went off-program and played whatever he wanted," the reveler said.
Kim Kardashian has been accused of putting on extra weight to secure a weight loss deal.
The pregnant reality TV star - who will welcome her first child in July with her boyfriend of one year Kanye West - is reportedly hoping emulate Weight Watchers spokesperson Jessica Simpson and secure a multi-million dollar deal with a diet brand to help her get her pre-pregnancy body back later this year.
"I wouldn't put it past her to blow up just so her weight loss is more dramatic. The way diet company deals are structured, bonuses are often built in for losing more weight in a shorter period of time," a source said.
Another source suggested Kim is choosing to wear unflattering maternity clothes and publicly indulging her sweet tooth to attract more attention from weight loss companies.

+ Though Harmony Korine's latest film Spring Breakers doesn't even hit theaters until Friday, there has been enough buzz generated about it to get Opening Ceremony to collaborate with the filmmakers on an exclusive summer collection.
+ Kim Kardashian has been spotted in many tight-fitting outfits, despite her very pregnant state; however, the reality star was spotted at the premiere of her new movie Temptation in a chic black lace look appropriate for an expectant mother.

Kanye West is desperate for Anna Wintour to like Kim Kardashian. The "Mercy" rapper - who is expecting his first child with the 32-year-old reality TV star in early July - is trying to convince the fashion editor to put the brunette beauty on the US cover of Vogue.
A source told Star magazine that while Anna thinks that Kanye, 35, is "terrific," she thinks his girlfriend of almost one year is "the worst thing since socks and sandals." The insider also claimed that the style icon said Kim would appear in the esteemed fashion magazine "over her dead body."
Anna allegedly ignored Kim at New York Fashion Week last September and the insider claims the only way Kim has a chance of appearing in the American version of the magazine is in a feature introducing her newborn baby to the world.
Kim and Anna's feud has been well documented in the past. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was banned from attending the star-studded Met Gala in New York last year with Kanye because Anna believed she "didn't fit the bill."
The Kardashian sisters are being sued for $10 million. Reality TV stars Kim, Kourtney and Khloe could face a mammoth legal bill following make-up artist Lee Tillett's claim they stole the name of their new cosmetics range, Khroma Beauty, from her.
Lee is also asking for damages from Boldface Group Inc, the company that markets their line, after a cease and desist letter sent last July imploring them to stop using the name failed to work. "I developed the Kroma line myself, built my business through my own hard work, and took the legal steps necessary to protect it. And yet I have now been forced into legal battle with the Kardashians simply because they have decided to take something that doesn't belong to them," she said.
Boldface petitioned a Florida court to rule Lee's brand name "conceptually weak," because it "consists solely of a descriptive term and lacks any inherent distinctive meaning to the relevant consuming public."
Kim Kardashian is taking pregnancy fashion inspiration from Victoria Beckham.
The 32-year-old reality TV star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West and has been studying pictures of the Spice Girls star-turned-fashion designer - who has children Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and Harper, 18 months, with husband David Beckham - to get ideas on staying chic as her figure expands. "Kim loves Victoria's VB range to complement her curves. Now with a burgeoning bump on the way, she is following her style closely. Kim spent hours with her mum, Kris Jenner, and her glam squad going through pictures of what Victoria wore during all her pregnancies. She wants to look classy and not frumpy while carrying her child," a source said.
Duchess Catherine Middleton returned clothes sent to her by Kim Kardashian. The British royal is known for championing high street as well as designer fashion, but didn't accept a package sent by the reality TV star and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney from their new Dorothy Perkins range.
"Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequined jacket," a source said.
Kim was also said to be keen to meet with Catherine while she was recently in London, inviting her for tea. "The Kardashians want to be as big in the UK as they are in America, and think associating themselves with the Royals, especially Kate, will help them achieve that. She hoped Kate might be seen wearing one of the designs out in public, which would give their fashion credentials a huge boost," the source said.
+ Although Kristen Stewart seems to favor t-shirts and sneakers when not on a publicity tour, but she cleans up quite well when she is! Although she doesn't seem too much of a Victoria Beckham fan, Stewart looked great in an orange number from the popstar-turned-designer's eponymous line at an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.
+ EMA host Heidi Klum may have worn Versace the whole night of the event, but not all of them seem to be the best of fashion choices. The same goes for the rest of the stars that evening - Lana Del Rey wore the most plainest black dress while Kim Kardashian looked like she was wearing a train of black trash bags.
+ Want a pair of heels you might have seen on display at the Victoria's Secret fashion show? Unfortunately, designer Nicholas Kirkwood says he's not selling them - unless you want to special order some through his stores, of course. He also seems to hint at the possibility of collaborating with the lingerie giant in the future.
