Stars including singers Bono and Robin Thicke and supermodel Cara Delevingne helped raise more than $25 million (£14.7 million) for Leonardo DiCaprio's charity at a party in St. Tropez, France on Wednesday (23Jul14). The Titanic actor threw a star-studded bash in the French resort to boost funds for his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, and the event attracted a slew of celebrities including Selena Gomez and Jared Leto.
An auction was held at the town's Domaine Bertaud Belieu winery, and the lots included a Harley-Davidson motorcycle signed by Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, which sold for more than $673,000 (£395,882), and a Damien Hirst artwork which fetched $6 million (£3.5 million).
U2 frontman Bono auctioned off a guitar and also performed for guests, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
The inaugural fundraising gala was in aid of DiCaprio's foundation, which aims to protect the environment and save endangered species.
Pop star Selena Gomez has sparked rumours she has moved on from her on/off relationship with Justin Bieber after spending her 22nd birthday on vacation with a new man. The Come and Get It hitmaker celebrated her big day on Tuesday (22Jul14) by relaxing on a yacht off the coast of St. Tropez in France with model pal Cara Delevingne, and photographers were there to snap her celebrations at sea, which included several embraces with businessman Tommy Chiabra.
In one shot, Gomez is pictured wrapped in a towel as she leans back into the arms of Chiabra on the deck of the luxury boat, and, in another snap, the birthday girl holds on to her rumoured new beau as they ride a jet ski.
She fuelled the romance gossip by linking arms with Chiabra later that evening as they enjoyed a night out in St. Tropez, reports the New York Daily News.
The singer has yet to comment on the latest dating reports, but she took time out of her day to express her gratitude to her Twitter.com fans for their birthday wishes.
She wrote, "Thank you SO much for my birthday wishes this has been the BEST birthday yet! THANK YOU!!!!"
Gomez and Bieber, who initially split last year (13), were last spotted together in June (14), when they paid a visit to the Los Angeles Zoo.
However, he appeared to have moved on again earlier this month (Jul14) after sharing pictures of himself cuddling model Yovanna Ventura with fans online.
Chiabra was previously linked to Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr.
Selena Gomez has a new gal pal in British model Cara Delevingne - the friends were photographed sunbathing on a yacht off the coast of St. Tropez, France, where the pop star is celebrating her 22nd birthday on Tuesday (22Jul14).
Members of the Hollywood elite, including Bradley Cooper, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, mingled with royals and rock stars at the annual Serpentine Gallery Summer Party in London on Tuesday night (01Jul14). Famous faces from the world of film, fashion and music mixed with royals including Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie at the lavish bash, which is held every year in Kensington Gardens to mark the unveiling of the new pavilion design.
Pharrell Williams performed during the event, thrilling the crowd with hits including Happy and his Robin Thicke collaboration Blurred Lines, while guests rubbed shoulders with music stars including pop singer Lily Allen and former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher.
Models Naomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne were also in attendance, along with Hollywood stars Cooper, Bloom and Knightley, who was with her rocker husband James Righton. Cooper attended with his model/actress partner Suki Waterhouse.
Other famous faces at the bash included actress/singer Samantha Barks and TV star/model Alexa Chung.
"On that topic, I think... What do I think? I think people shouldn't be scared of that. I'm young, I'm having fun, I don't want to pretend to be something I'm not. So I don't really care on that matter. People can say what they want, but I'm having a good time." British supermodel Cara Delevingne plays coy when asked about her sexuality. The beauty was recently linked to actress Michelle Rodriguez.
British supermodel Cara Delevingne launched into a rant on social media after a journalist complained about the catwalk beauty falling asleep during an interview.
In a feature published online at Vogue.com on Tuesday (24Jun14), journalist Plum Sykes accuses Delevingne of being late to their spa meeting due to oversleeping and then dozing off after their joint massage. Sykes writes, "Dear reader, to misquote Oscar Wilde, can I say that to oversleep once for a Vogue interview may be regarded as a misfortune, but to oversleep twice looks like carelessness?"
She also suggests the reason for Delevingne's tiredness was because she was pictured partying the night before.
The article prompted the model to launch into a rant on Twitter.com, writing, "Why do people in the industry lie so much???? They would rather see you fail than succeed. What happened to supporting each other... It's even worse when your (you are) trying to fight people that have all the power because then you are powerless... All I can say is that I work extremely hard and 'sleeping' is proof that sometimes I work too hard. I apologise for being so ambitious."
"This just shows that the fashion industry is not the most understanding or compassionate of industries... That only applies to the people that sit around not really caring and never really bothering to get to know you or what it's really like."
The journalist had not responded to Delevingne's criticism as WENN went to press.
Taylor Swift here has been in the gossip mags for a different reason lately — rather than the high-profile/drama-filled boyfriends of old, we've been seeing her out and about with equally high-profile/decidedly less drama-filled girlfriends.
Her roster of friends (which includes Lena Dunham, Lorde, and Cara Delevingne, to name a few) is enviable, to say the least: she's got about everything a girl could ask for — she leaves the gym perfectly coiffed (and dressed like this), she bakes cookies with Olympian Gracie Gold, she roadtrips with supermodel Karlie Kloss, and now... well, meet her newest (and soon to be most famous) friend — a kitten who just happens to be named Olivia Benson.
Ms. Benson is white, fluffy, tiny, and above all, adorable. You're killing us, Taylor: killing us with cuteness!
British supermodel Cara Delevingne initially refused to watch her starring role in TV movie Timeless because she was convinced her acting was "horrible". The catwalk beauty, who made her acting debut in 2012 movie Anna Karenina, landed a leading role in Timeless, in which she plays a young woman forced to look after her great-grandmother.
However, Delevingne could not bring herself to watch her star turn, telling Seven Days magazine, "I couldn't watch Timeless at first - I couldn't let anyone watch it, I couldn't hear it or see it, it was horrible! "When you watch your own stuff, you can't get past your own performance... It's the same with modelling photos. I'm very critical of myself so I hate to look at my stuff but then you always want to improve. I managed to watch it in the end."
Later this year (14), the model will be seen in psychological thriller The Face of an Angel, indie film Kids in Love and drama London Fields. Timeless will air in the U.K. on Thursday (19Jun14).
Angelina Jolie's London summit to end rape in war zones has won the support of stars including Thandie Newton, Kathleen Turner, model Cara Delevingne, and even Catholic leader Pope Francis.
The Hollywood actress launched the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in the British capital on Tuesday (10Jun14) and the event's slogan #timetoact has sparked a social networking frenzy. The phrase has become a trending topic on Twitter.com as more and more stars post pictures of themselves holding a sign bearing the words.
Newton, Turner and Delevingne have all joined in, with the model backing Jolie in a tweet, writing, "Yes Angie! #timetoact #stoptorture". Others who have backed the drive include Harry Potter actress Bonnie Wright, fashion designers Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood, singers Paloma Faith, Mollie King and Eliza Doolittle, and Pope Francis.
The head of the Catholic Church writes on Twitter, "Let us pray for all victims of sexual violence in conflict, and those working to end this crime. #TimeToAct."
