Actress Kristen Stewart is auctioning off the designer dress she wore to the Los Angeles premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 for Sandy relief efforts.
 
The 22-year-old actress walked the red carpet last month in a sheer, lace Zuhair Murad gown, and she is now giving one lucky superfan the chance to own it, reported Daily Express.

Stewart, who also autographed the dress, has decided to hand over the garment to charity officials behind the 12-12-12 Auction for Sandy Relief.
 
The sale follows her appearance at the 12-12-12 concert for Sandy Relief mega gig at New York's Madison Square Garden last week, when she called on viewers of the televised show to keep donating to help those worst hit by October's storm, which caused devastation across America's East Coast.
 
Bidding on the strapless gown had already reached 1,094 pounds.
 
Other items up for grabs in the CharityBuzz.com sale include limited edition guitars signed by 12-12-12 performers including Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen, a signed sweatshirt worn by Kanye West, and the drumsticks rocker Dave Grohl used as he staged a Nirvana reunion with McCartney as their frontman.
 
All proceeds will benefit the event's charity, The Robin Hood Foundation.

Channing Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan, is expecting the couple's first child.

A representative for the couple told People.com, '(The Tatums) are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year.'

The actors, both 32, met on the set of the 2006 dance film Step Up and tied the knot in Malibu, California in July 2009.

Tatum, who was recently named the publication's Sexiest Man Alive, dropped hints the pair was keen to start a family in an interview last month, saying, 'I'm ready; I think she's ready. The first number that pops into my head is three (children), but I just want one to be healthy and then we''ll see where we go after that.'

A man, who hacked the email accounts of stars including Scarlett Johansson and Christina Aguilera has been jailed.
 
Christopher Chaney, who leaked nude pictures of Johansson that were meant for her then-husband Ryan Reynolds, was
sentenced to ten years in prison, reported TMZ online.
 
The 35-year-old targeted over 50 people in the entertainment industry, including Mila Kunis. He pleaded guilty to charges including wiretapping and unauthorised access to a computer.
 
Chaney leaked photos of Aguilera after sending an email from the account of her stylist, Simone Harouche, asking for
scantily clad images.
 
The singer said ahead of his sentencing, 'That feeling of security can never be given back and there is no compensation
that can restore the feeling one has from such a large invasion of privacy.'
 
US District Judge S James Otero sentenced Chaney in LA following a video statement from Johansson.
 
Aguilera, Kunis and Johansson agreed to have their identities made public to raise awareness about online intrusion.
 
Chaney had also targeted two women he knew. He was originally arrested in October 2011.
