Friends star Matthew Perry is to make his U.K. TV acting debut after accepting a role in a quirky new British comedy. Perry has signed up to star in a one-off show called The Dog Thrower, playing a man who inspires a new trend by tossing his pet in the air, which is part of the Playhouse Presents series.
The actor follows in the footsteps of his former Friends co-star Matt LeBlanc who became a regular on U.K. TV after landing a recurring role in British comedy Episodes in 2011.
The Playhouse Presents series also includes a gang heist drama called Foxtrot, which pairs Skyfall star Ben Whishaw with singer-turned-actress Billie Piper, Timeless, starring model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne, and Nosferatu In Love, featuring Mark Strong.
The shows air in the U.K. later this year (14).
Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein wants to turn British model Cara Delevingne into a bona fide Hollywood star by hiring her for his next movie Tulip Fever. Weinstein met the model through his fashion designer wife, Georgina Chapman, and he wants to give the aspiring actress a boost by casting her in his new drama alongside Christoph Waltz and Alicia Vikander.
He says, "I know Cara through Georgina but we know her also for who she is and what she is. I've been talking to her about doing something in my next movie, Tulip Fever. We're shooting in May and I cannot imagine her being anything but fantastic in front of the camera. She's adorable."
Delevingne made her acting debut in 2012's Anna Karenina and she has two more films set for release this year (14), including The Face of an Angel, a drama inspired by the story of convicted murdered Amanda Knox.
Former supermodel Twiggy feels sorry for catwalk star Cara Delevingne as the rise of smartphones and the Internet means the blonde British beauty has nowhere to hide. Twiggy, real name Lesley Lawson, was one of the original breed of supermodels in 1960s London but she still managed to maintain a private life at the height of her fame.
She recalls how she was once mobbed outside a department store during a trip to New York, but is adamant she pities modern-day catwalk queens such as Delevingne because they live their entire lives in the public eye.
Twiggy tells U.K. TV show Loose Women, "I didn't have that because we didn't really have paparazzi then either, which is amazing. I did nearly actually get squashed to death in New York when I went there, because I got mobbed outside a department store and it was really frightening because the crowd started to push because they saw that somebody was there and somebody wanted an autograph.
"Luckily, I had a bodyguard... and he picked me up under his arm and threw me through the limousine window. I was screaming and crying for me mum (sic), and my eyelashes ended up on me cheek (sic), but I didn't have that day-to-day paparazzi thing that these girls do."
British supermodel Cara Delevingne has been mastering the art of knitting backstage during London Fashion Week. The beauty was snapped after the Giles presentation on Monday (17Feb14) practising her needlework with a big ball of orange wool sitting in her lap.
British supermodel Cara Delevingne has created her own line of purses for a top design house. The catwalk star has teamed up with Mulberry to create a collection of backpack-style handbags, which are all embossed with a 'Made in England' stamp to match a tattoo on Delevingne's foot.
Delevingne, who models the backpacks in a new advertising campaign, announced the news in a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, writing, "Today is the day!... The big reveal... I am sooooo (sic) happy to announce the Cara bag!!!"
The luxury bags, which come in three sizes, cost up to $2,000 (£1,250).
Taylor Swift cut off her long locks on Tuesday (11Feb14) to celebrate the end of her year-long world tour. The music superstar's massive Red Tour ended at London's O2 Arena to a sold-out crowd, and following her final show, Swift took to Instagram.com to show off her new hairdo.
Sharing a photo of herself with special guest Ellie Goulding, who joined Swift onstage for a duet of the Brit singer's hit Burn, Swift added the caption, "London, I could never thank you enough. See you next time! PS: short hair, don't care. (!!!)"
The blonde beauty also posted a video prior to the haircut showing a large group of pals gathered around her, as she jokes, "We don't do anything without an audience, do we?"
Among her celebrity friends to witness the chop were Goulding, model Cara Delevingne and her ex-beau Harry Styles.
Fans have also speculated that the short cut was inspired by late actress Shirley Temple, who passed away on Monday (10Feb14) and was known for her signature curly blonde hair.
Before her show on Tuesday, Swift wrote on Twitter.com, "Sitting backstage at the O2 in London, thinking about what an impressive and extraordinary life Shirley Temple led. Thanks for the memories."
Models Cara and Poppy Delevingne's socialite sister Chloe has wed property developer Ed Grant. The couple exchanged vows at London's members only club Mark's on Friday (07Feb14).
The pregnant bride, 29, was flanked by her younger sisters throughout the ceremony.
It is the second marriage for Chloe Delevingne - her first to nightclub boss Louis Buckworth broke down after just 17 months in 2008.
Grant was the best man at the former couple's wedding.
Pop star Taylor Swift teamed up with singer Ed Sheeran and model Cara Delevingne for an impromptu performance at the home of a U.S. diplomat in London on Thursday (06Feb14). The Love Story hitmaker is currently in the U.K. for her five-night-residency at the British capital's O2 arena, and she moved her show to a smaller venue by performing in the foyer of the American ambassador's house.
Swift posted a short video of the trio's performance on Instagram.com, and wrote, "Me, Ed, Cara. Singing songs in the US ambassador's house. What is life."
Sheeran, who has been touring with the singer, strummed on his guitar and sang lead vocals on Heartbeats by The Knife, while Swift and Delevingne joined in with harmonies.
Swift will end her world tour in London on 11 February (14).
Oh, Cara Delevingne. What is it about the bushy-browed Victoria's Secret model that makes people just want to start tonguing her down? We have to admit, she looks like a lot of fun on Instagram, but still. Literally. Everyone is making out with her! Miley Cyrus, Michelle Rodriguez, Harry Styles, Sienna Miller, Miley Cyrus again. We are very concerned that at this rate, Cara will run out of people to make out with in 2014. Or she'll make out with the wrong person, and it won't be as exciting for the rest of us. So, here ya go, Cara. Three people we'd enjoy seeing you make out with in 2014. Thank you in advance:
Fellow Victoria's Secret Model Karlie Kloss?
Look at these two, they're adorable. They are sooo gonna make out backstage during one of their shows ... assuming this hasn't already happened.
They've never hung out before, but something tells us these two would have a pretty wild time together. All that dirty blond hair and madness? Oh yeah. It could go down. Plus, between Miley Cyrus and Rihanna she's already made out with all the other big pop singers.
An Actual Guy For A Change, Like A$AP Rocky?
They just did the DKNY campaign together, and seeing as how the Harlem rapper loves a good time, we could see this happening. Unless, of course, he's still dating Chanel Iman in which case -- no! No, Cara!
Singer Rihanna, actress Cate Blanchett and model Miranda Kerr have been named among Vogue magazine's best dressed women of 2013. The stylish celebrities join Lily Collins, Stella McCartney, Cara Delevingne and Kerry Washington on the list.
Describing Blanchett's style, editors of the U.S. publication write, "No matter the occasion, the Blue Jasmine star greets the red carpet triumphant, always nailing the daunting combination of fashion-forward and timeless elegance."
Rihanna, who hosts U.S. reality TV show Fashion Star, is praised as "a sartorial volcano liable to erupt at any moment in the most fabulous anytime-anywhere ensembles imaginable. She laughs at the phrase dress code, opting for maned and sequined Tom Ford or printed Christopher Kane sweats for a sidewalk jaunt."
Kerr, who has walked the runway for Victoria's Secret, has a fashion sense described as a, "Street-style Barbie in the absolute best way, the Aussie model makes even a mundane outing look like the most glamorous... in history."
