Kim Kardashian poses in and dishes out tips on the right lingerie

The tirelessly self-promoting reality TV starlet is at it again. This time, she's posed for the cover of Glamour's February edition, in a seductive black bra and pajamas.

In an interview with the magazine, she reveals that she wears underwired bras to bed so that her assets are well-supported. She also advises wearing no-fuss bras and thongs in the day, while evenings call for 'lacy, racy' inners. And when relaxing at home, loose and comfy is the way to go.

Queen of Pop Madonna has launched a search for the new face of her Material Girl clothing line.

The singer has posted a message on the brand's website, urging fans to cast their vote to decide who gets the job, reports the Daily Star.

Madonna released the teenage clothing range, designed in collaboration with her daughter Lourdes, last year with actress Taylor Momsen as the collection's poster girl.

Now she is looking for a replacement for the Gossip Girl star.

The message, titled 'Desperately Seeking Material Girl', references lyrics from her famous song of the same name.

"Living in a material world, we all need material girls. Looking for the hottest girl on the scene. She is never afraid. Hollywood is calling the next girl!...Wanted: Next big star. She makes her own fashion statement -- trendy, but cool, young and hip," the text read.

Who has more red-carpet value: Angelina Jolie or Lady Gaga?

Prev     Next

The rise and fall of celebrities is a thing that no one can predict, but a number of experts have ranked some stars who they feel will either make it or break it on the red carpet.

The judging panel consists of Fashionista editor Lauren Sherman, Racked editor Danica Lo, celebrity stylist June Ambrose and Hollywood Life fashion editor Katrina Mitzeliotis.

First on the list is actress Lindsay Lohan, with a score of 4.3, and who was given average style scores by the editors.

"I want to see her wow us with a fashion comeback and leave the skimpy '80s dresses at home," AOL News quoted Ambrose as saying.

Next is Carey Mulligan, with a score of 4.9, and experts say her willingness to experiment will definitely earn her style points.

Actress Angelina Jolie got 9.4, and the experts feel she should do away with the drab blacks and greys, and instead go for flavour, attitude and sex.

Anne Hathaway earned 7.1 points, and the experts feel that even though she does do well on the red carpet, she needs to get a little sexed-up once in a while.

Kim Kardashian scored 1.5, though the experts feel she tends to pander to the public by over-accentuating her assets (boobs and butt) and rarely mixes things up.

Where Lady Gaga is concerned, she was given a rating of 10.2, with the experts saying that her growth potential seems limitless.

Actress Halle Berry scored 8.8, and the experts say that her personal life is what gave her red-carpet clout in 2010.

"Whether she's in a plunging dress or a pantsuit, she never plays it safe," Mitzeliotis said.

Actress Natalie Portman scored 15.3, and the experts say her engagement to sexy ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied along with the news that she's having his baby, has made her the most valuable red-carpet celebrity going into 2011.

Celebs face possible court action over 'plugging' products on Twitter

Prev     Next

Next

Actors, pop singers and TV presenters who fail to mention that they have a financial interest in 'plugging' luxury products online may now face court action.

The British Government's consumer watchdog has cracked the whip on dozens of celebrities, including actress Liz Hurley and singer Lily Allen, who have been accused of using their Internet blogs and tweets to endorse products, reports the Daily Mail.

The crackdown has been ordered by the Office of Fair Trading, which has the power to take offenders to court.

The first such case of its kind was brought last year against a PR firm which was found to be paying bloggers to write in glowing terms about the company's clients.

Now, enforcement officers are examining possible breaches of the law by celebrities involved in secret deals with manufacturers of luxury goods.

The OFT has refused to discuss ongoing investigations, but officials are known to be keen to crack down on what they regard as possible breaches of the consumer protection laws, laid down in the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.

If OFT warnings about surreptitious advertising are ignored, it can seek a court order that could lead to a criminal prosecution and an unlimited fine.

"The integrity of information published online is crucial, so that people can make informed decisions on how to spend their money," said OFT Senior Director Heather Clayton.

Elizabeth Hurley's Twitter page contains at least 10 references to Estee Lauder's 'divine' skincare products. She has been the public face of the cosmetics company for 17 years.

"Apparently, there is a brand new Playstation Move waiting for me at my office in the morning. Tres exciting," wrote Lily Allen, whose Twitter page has more than 2.5 million followers.

The computer gaming company was involved in the launch of Miss Allen's new clothes shop, Lucy in Disguise, in Covent Garden, London, in September.

Asked about a possible connection with the singer's online musings, Allen's spokesman said: 'It's nobody's business.'

Celebrity endorsements on blogs are a huge industry in the United States, where stars like Snoop Dogg can earn up to 3,000 dollars per tweet for promoting brands.

But they have to be accompanied by the prefixes 'ad' or 'spon' to show the reference has been paid for.

In an interview, Nicole Kidman has confessed that she has used Botox to keep her complexion so porcelain perfect.

The actress earlier said that she had never used Botox to keep wrinkles at bay.

However, the Oscar-winning actress has now admitted to having the injections.

But she insisted she no longer uses it, because she did not like the results.

The 43 -years -old star made her confession to a German magazine interviewer who asked her about keeping wrinkles away.

"I've tried a lot of things, but apart from working out and a good diet, most things don't help," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"I even tried Botox, but I didn't like how my face looked afterwards. Now I don't use it anymore -- and I can move my forehead again," she added.

Barbadian singer Rihanna was spotted wearing a controversial gun necklace during a recent shopping trip.

Rihanna, 22, who was out shopping at the Fred Segal store in Hollywood, was seen proudly displaying her silver chain with the pistol-shaped charm, the Daily Mail reported.

The singer, who appears to have an obsession with guns, seemed unconcerned about any potential fallout from wearing such a controversial piece of jewellery and the influence it could have on her young fans.

The redhead has a song on her latest album called Man Down, which repeats the phrase, "Oh mama, I just shot a man down in central station in front of a big ol' crowd".

Kate Moss earns 7 million pounds!

Kate Moss reportedly earned 7 million pounds in December last year by winding up one of her companies.

The windfall was on top of the 6.1 million pounds she earned last year -- which had already made her the third highest-paid model in the world, reports the Sun.

The 36-years-old beauty set up private firm Skate Enterprises in 1993 to take in all her modelling fees.

She decided to close it in 2008 due to tax law changes, but its complex finances meant it was only finalised last month.

Kate drew 69,885.65 pounds for each of her 100 shares -- a total of 6.9 million pounds.

Documents lodged with Companies House also showed the firm had to pay 1.25 million pounds in tax.

Actress Jessica Szohr has stripped off and posed in nothing but a slick of body paint for a soft drink advertisement.

Painted to look like a reptile, the 25-year-old reclines in a waterfall and runs naked through the streets of Costa Rica.

The Gossip Girl star isn't the first young actress to front the campaign -- last year, Twilight's Ashley Greene posed for the advert.

"Last year's SoBe Lifewater skinsuit shoot took place on a gorgeous beach; this year's skinsuit shoot in the jungle was still amazing, but a little different. It definitely had an edgy vibe that I loved," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

Most women 'don't wish to dress their age until they are 70'

A woman's desire to look younger than her real age translates into the way she dresses, and most women don't wish to 'dress their age' until they are 70 years of age, according to a new survey.

A Debenhams research found that one in three styled themselves to look older when they were teens, to impress boys or get into pubs and bars.

Women in their 20s also dressed older as they focused on their careers.

Over half said they began to dress younger in their 30s and 90 percent admitted they had started to dress younger by their mid-40s, reports the Daily Mail.

"Age defiance is about dressing for your shape and size, rather than dressing like a 20-year-old. Wearing clothes that suit your body will make you feel confident and instantly take years off," said Debenhams personal shopper Alain Mehada.

Supportive undies, high heels, fitted jackets and trendy accessories are just some of the items that make customers feel younger.

Interestingly, only 12 percent of men questioned said they had ever thought about dressing to look younger.
