Supermodel Cara Delevingne was shocked to discover the necklace she wore to hear sister Poppy's wedding was worth 300,000 pounds.

Cara was the butt of all jokes at Poppy's nuptials because of the pricey jewellery, which was given to her as a gift at Cannes Film Festival last week, reported Daily Mirror.

"Cara has been the butt of all jokes at the wedding because of the necklace. She has absolutely no idea how much the thing was worth and even turned up to the airport wearing it with a regular old tracksuit," a source said.

"Apparently the sapphire is completely flawless and one of the best in the entire world. She has the price of a house hanging around her neck and she didn't even realise," it added.

Cara, who was delighted when the boss of Swiss jewellery de Grisogono agreed to let her keep the necklace, was at the wedding without her on/off girlfriend Michelle Rodriguez following speculation the pair could have broke up.

French model Nabilla Benattia had major wardrobe malfunction at Cannes red carpet when her boob popped right out of her dress.

The 22-year-old reality TV star had turned up at the event clad in a sheer black outfit with a revealing strap across her breasts, which apparently wasn’t supportive enough and ended up revealing one of her boob in full view, the Mirror reported.

Though the blonde beauty quickly grabbed her top and tried to lift it up, while trying to laugh off the situation, the damage was already done and even her golden locks, which she wore loose to the side, weren’t long enough to help the situation.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson says turning 50 has made her realise that health is more important than looking attractive.

She celebrated her landmark birthday in March, reported Contactmusic.

"I think as a woman, when you get to 50 you have to make a bit more effort. Being well, being fit and being healthy from the inside out is really important. Obviously, great lighting and good make-up team helps!," Elle said.

"For me it's really about the way I feel, not so much the way I look anymore. And if I'm feeling good, I'm feeling strong and I'm feeling vibrant then I tend to look better," she added.

Jennifer Lopez has revealed that she felt good after completing her 22-day vegan diet challenge.

The singer opened up to Ryan Seacrest recently about taking part in the dietary challenge, saying that she didn’t know how good one can feel when you put healthy stuff in your body, the New York Daily News reported.

She said that the diet plan was really good and she kept on with it for a few more weeks.

Although Lopez has arguably one of the best bodies in Hollywood and music, she’s admitted that working out isn’t exactly her cup of tea.

Hip hop royalty Beyonce and Jay Z also took part in the challenge with Queen B documenting their healthy eating on Instagram.

Gwyneth Paltrow launches online book club

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has launched a new online book club for food fans.

Paltrow, 41, picked Roberta's Cookbook as the first tome and she wants feedback from fans of her goop.com blog, reported Contactmusic.

Explaining the new Cookbook Club initiative on the site, the Emma star wrote, "This was not my idea..., which is probably why it's so good. While I have always liked the idea of a book club (sorta) I am just not that type of gal.

"Until one of my gorgeous girls suggested we do a different book club of sorts. A cookbook club! Now, as someone who gets in bed and reads cookbooks cover to cover as if they were novels, this idea was scintillating. We set off to find the ideal book to kick it off using the same criteria we would if we were choosing a novel, something challenging, beautiful, and with the possibility of becoming a classic. We landed on Roberta's Cookbook.

"Please cook with us and tell us what you learned, how you modified, and what the next instructional cooking club tome should be. Happy cooking."

The actress is a cookbook author herself - in 2008 she co-wrote the book Spain... A Culinary Road Trip with Mario Batali and in 2011 she released My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family and Togetherness and Notes From My Kitchen Table.

Paris Hilton in legal battle

Socialite Paris Hilton is being sued by a New York-based Antebi Footwear Group which is the designer of the Paris Hilton Footwear collection of stilettos flats, wedges and other footwear.

The footwear group slapped the hotel heiress with a USD 2 million breach-of-contract suit on May 17 in Manhattan federal court, reported the New York Post.

The counterclaim demands Hilton refund USD 2 million in royalties Antebi has paid the hotel heiress since it began selling her footwear products in 2007 and other money damages.

It alleges that Hilton back-stabbed Antebi by tapping a rival footwear company, Retouch, last year to license a competing footwear line, 'Parisian Parc' in violation of a contract agreement with Antebi.

Hilton also took to Twitter and Instagram to promote the new footwear line, the counterclaim says.

The counterclaim is in response to Hilton socking Antebi with a USD 1 million lawsuit last month alleging she was unlawfully squeezed out of royalties after the firm allegedly failed to honour its licensing agreement.

Antebi claims Hilton broke her agreement first. The new filing also seeks Hilton's suit be dismissed.

Pregnant actress Scarlett Johansson hates being a sex symbol and plans to embrace getting older.

The 29-year-old star, who is expecting her first child with her French journalist fiance Romain Dauriac, said she feels less pressure to look perfect as she gets older, reported Contactmusic.

"I don't want to be the ingenue any more. That part I'm happy about. It's nice to be glamorous, but I don't want to always have to be trendy and glamorous and an object of desire. I don't want to be stuck in that forever. Because it doesn't last," she said.

The Avengers star previously admitted she hopes that she'll be able to juggle motherhood and her career. "I want to be able to have it all. Selfishly," she added.
