Country star Wynonna Judd has joined the celebrities making strides with fashionable footwear after creating a new shoe line, titled Good Sole. The collection is available at top U.S. boutiques like Fred Segal.
Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has warned celebrity jewellers to be more vigilant of imposters after a thief managed to con Los Angeles store staff into handing over gems by posing as his assistant. The unidentified suspect reportedly called the Santa Monica, California branch of top brand Fred Segal last week (ends17Nov13) and told clerks his boss needed some jewellery immediately.
A woman at the store agreed to take the items to the Roosevelt Hotel, where another man, claiming to be a security guard, promised to take the pricey items up to the stars' suite and come back with the cash. The man never returned.
Now Cannon has spoken out about the incident, insisting he's no stranger to imposters attempting to cash in by using his name.
He tells TMZ.com, "That's crazy man... but a lot crazier stuff has happened. I mean, people have stolen my identity before, people have charged like, over $200,000 to my Amex (American Express credit card), all types of stuff... That's part of the sacrifices we make as celebrities and being in the public eye that somebody can just grab your name, go online, do whatever they want to do, say they're part of your crew.
"But I pray for those tortured souls, real talk, if somebody gotta do that, that's a dirty thing."
And Cannon insists he would always handle requests personally so jewellers and other business owners know who they are dealing with: "If I want some jewellery from you, I'mma (sic) call you directly!"
Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has found his name linked to a bizarre jewellery heist after an imposter pretended to be his assistant and conned staff at top Los Angeles store Fred Segal to hand over gems at a Hollywood hotel. The unidentified man reportedly called the Santa Monica branch of the store, stated he worked for Cannon, and told staff his boss needed some jewellery immediately.
According to TMZ.com, a woman at the store agreed to take the select jewellery items to the Roosevelt Hotel, where she was met by another man who claimed to be a security guard.
He offered to take the goods up to Cannon's room and return with cash, but he disappeared.
It is not clear how much the stolen jewellery was worth.
To the world it looks like Jessica Simpson could be ready to give birth any day now, but according to the superstar's younger sister, Ashlee Simpson, there's still plenty of time before the big day arrives.
In fact, the 27-year-old star was so confident that her niece wouldn't be making an appearance anytime soon that she jetted off to Australia to celebrate the opening of the nightclub Marquee The Star on March 29. "I have plenty of time," Simpson told Us Weekly in regards to missing the baby's birth. "And I'm going home [today] so it will be fine."
Last week, 31-year-old Jessica Simpson was overheard telling a shopper at Fred Segal that her first child with fiance Eric Johnson still has a few weeks left in the oven.
"Only one month to go!" the Fashion Star mentor said. "I can't wear heels anymore. I tried, but it was too hard. Wearing heels is like a religion to me, so it's tough!"
Throughout the past few months, Simpson has been extremely vocal about anything and everything having to do with her pregnancy (even when you wish she wouldn't). So when the big moment does in fact take place, it's doubtful she'll keep us in the dark for very long.

The story of Lust Caution begins in the midst of WWII in Asia as the Japanese have a stranglehold on key areas of China including Shanghai and Hong Kong. The iron-fisted Chinese who are collaborating with the invaders are led by Mr. Yee (Tony Leung) a cruel and ruthless man who delights in the torture and murder of his fellow countrymen who are fighting against the Japanese occupation. When a patriotic band of college students (made up of four men and two women all part of the drama school) decide to strike a blow for Chinese freedom by assassinating Mr. Yee it falls to Wang (the mesmerizingly beautiful Wei Tang) to infiltrate his home and heart to pave the way for the killing. But as her compatriots--including handsome Kuang played by American-born Chinese rock star Lee-Hom Wang who loves her from afar--bid their time waiting for the moment to strike Mr. Yee and Wang enter into a torrid affair that begins to consume them both. Think of the Hitchcock classic Suspicion shift from Europe to Asia add in intensely explicit sex scenes and a completely unexpected ending and you have Lust Caution--a film that is soon to be considered a classic as well. Veteran actors Tony Leung and Joan Chen lead a fine cast of actors who together create this completely believable glimpse into Chinese culture during the dark days of Japanese occupation. Both give intense performances--he as the powerful emotionless Mr. Yee and she as his vapid shopping and Mah Jong-obsessed wife. But the most amazing performance is that of newcomer Wei Tang the Miss Universe finalist who makes her film debut in Lust Caution. Her fantastic face slim body and almost ethereal presence seem to blot out everyone else when she is on the screen; you can’t help but look at only her. Her transformation in the four-year span of the story is masterful. As she goes from a naïve young student to a mature woman whose physical obsession with a man she despises begins to overwhelm her. The ingénue proves that she is much more than just a pretty face. In fact she deserves an Academy Award nomination for her often subtle always fearless performance that is at the heart of the film. Ang Lee has a unique cinematic ability to begin a story very specific to a time a place and a culture and end with a universal tale that resonates across all societies and peoples. He did it beautifully with Sense and Sensibility Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon as well as Brokeback Mountain and he’s done it again masterfully with Lust Caution. This newest film is an intense look at how war often causes an individual to make the ultimate sacrifice for the common good yet it also explores another underlying theme: the idea that there is a never-ending battle between the sexes for emotional dominance within a sexual relationship. Ang Lee’s deft hand is evident in every frame including the incredibly explicit (and often violent) sex scenes that have given the film its NC-17 rating. But this is not pornography; every scene is necessary to the story showing us that using sex as a means to an end (no matter how noble that end) is a very dangerous game to play especially during wartime. Look for Ang Lee’s name to come up on the Academy’s list again this year as awards season kicks into high gear. He deserves every honor for this emotionally disturbing masterpiece.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's three-week-old daughter has already made her first fashion statement after appearing on the cover of People magazine in a trendy T-shirt.
Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt wore a vintage-washed gray cotton T-shirt with the words "The Pots & Pans Band" on her first magazine cover, causing the $42 shirt to immediately fly off store shelves.
After the magazine hit newsstands last week, baby boutiques and high-end retailers, including Barney's New York, Fred Segal and Bloomingdale's, were inundated with telephone calls and Internet orders.
The shirt's designer, Kingsley Aarons, claims he was stunned by the response, saying, "It just hit me how big a deal this is."
Aarons was inspired by his own two-year-old son, Zephyr, when the amateur drummer began banging away on pots and pans in the family's kitchen.
The designer says other celebrity parents who dress their kids in his shirts include Johnny Depp, Gwen Stefani, Seal and Heidi Klum and Slash from Guns N' Roses.
He adds, "Brad and Angelina are definitely our customers. The new generation of young, hip parents are looking for outfits they would wear themselves."
Aarons is currently working with the celebrity couple's representatives to send baby T-shirts to Africa to help needy newborns.
