Country star Blake Shelton's ex-wife is hoping to make extra cash by selling her wedding dress on auction site eBay.com. The God Gave Me You hitmaker wed Kaynette Williams in 2003, but the couple split after three years of marriage. Now she's ready to sell off the gown she wore on her big day.
The strapless, size six Demetrios wedding dress with rhinestone embellishments has been listed with a starting bid of $700 (£415).
The listing, posted by a friend of Williams, includes photos of the used dress as well as photos of Shelton and Kaynette, who now works as a school teacher in Kansas, tying the knot.
Five years after their divorce, Shelton married fellow country singer Miranda Lambert in 2011.
Gwen Stefani's wedding dress is to go on display at a prominent museum in London as part of an exhibition showcasing gowns from stars' big days. The No Doubt singer wore a pink and white creation by John Galliano when she married rocker Gavin Rossdale in 2004, and fans will be able to get a glimpse of the gown at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The frock will be included in the Wedding Dresses 1775-2014 exhibition, which also includes the purple number Dita Von Teese wore for her marriage to shock rocker Marilyn Manson, and a headpiece worn by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall during her wedding to Charles, Prince of Wales in 2005.
The show opens on 3 May (14).
Ailing Miley Cyrus was forced to cancel her concert in Kansas City, Missouri on Tuesday night (15Apr14) after she was hospitalised for a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics. The Wrecking Ball hitmaker was due to perform at the Sprint Center for the latest stop on her Bangerz tour, but her representative tells GossipCop.com that the abnormal reaction to her medication has prompted her doctors to place her on medical rest, thus prompting her to axe her show.
Cyrus took to Twitter.com to express her disappointment over her latest medical scare, and wrote, "Kansas I promise I'm as heartbroken as you are. I wanted so badly 2 b there 2night (sic).
"Not being with yall (sic) makes me feel s**ttier than I already do."
She also posted a photo of herself in a medical gown in a hospital bed, holding up a toy shaped like an octopus, and added the caption, "Mr. Octopussy & some amazing Drs (sic) are taking good care of me."
The singer also responded to a fan's concerns about her health, writing, "I hate this. & I hate hospitals. & I hate needles. & I hate laying in a bed bored AF (as f**k). & I hate feeling like crap."
Cyrus, who complained of a cough and sore throat on the microblogging site on Monday (14Apr14), was also forced to cancel her gig in Charlotte, North Carolina last week (07Apr14), after coming down with influenze.
Her tour mate Sky Ferreira has also been sick. The singer axed a show in Iowa City, Iowa on Sunday (13Apr14) due to a bout of flu.
Pregnant actress Ginnifer Goodwin has married fiance Josh Dallas in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles. The Once Upon a Time co-stars exchanged vows at sunset on Saturday (12Apr14) in front of around 30 guests.
A source tells Eonline.com, "Ginnifer and Josh seemed very relaxed and happy. They were surrounded by their nearest and dearest friends and kept it very intimate and simple."
The expectant bride walked down the aisle in a custom Monique Lhuillier gown.
Goodwin and Dallas announced their engagement in October (13) after more than a year of dating, and revealed they were having a baby just a month later (Nov13).
They weren't the only celebrities tying the knot this weekend - Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter also wed his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Kitt, on Saturday.
Funnyman Adam Sandler hit the streets of Hollywood in his dressing gown to record a skit for U.S. late night show Conan after learning host Conan O'brien had moved into his Los Angeles neighbourhood. Joking that the TV personality had never invited him round or given him his full address, Sandler introduced the video footage by stating he wanted to share an "orange soda" with the host and went in search of his home.
In the hilarious skit, which aired on Conan on Monday night (31Mar14), Sandler wandered through traffic on Sunset Boulevard and even clambered aboard an Ultimate Hollywood Tours bus, looking for his pal.
Dressed in just a dressing gown and boots, the Grown Ups star yelled, "Conan, it's for you" at passersby and, "F**k you Conan" when they failed to stop.
He also wandered into gay bar Rage and met O'Brien's TV sidekick Andy Richter. He ended the skit by turning up at a chubby Conan look-a-like's home.
There are a lot of beautiful women in the world and there are plenty that are sexy as well. There is, however, only one Rihanna.
The pop singer has been called the "Sexiest Woman Alive" multiple times, most officially when Esquire bestowed that title upon her in 2011. But, why is she so desirable? What is it about her that screams "sexy"? Why does most of the world seemingly want her?
We think that we have some idea… and we're willing to share.
She Doesn't Care What We Think
Rihanna is as comfortable in her own skin as anyone. Just take a look at her Instagram posts and it's easy to see that she's not worried about how people see her. The fact that she can look good whether she's trying to or not is part of her allure. Of course, it hasn't always been that way. On the heels of filming a part in Battleship in 2012, she told Women's Fitness magazine, "You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it. After a while, it was like, 'What’s the worst that can happen?' and I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body is the way it is no matter what that helped me, knowing that it is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes." She seems to prefer the outside the clothes option, but there's nothing wrong with that.
She Doesn't Shy Away from Her Sexuality
The woman that sings "S&M" and "Pour It Up" has a stage show that matches her songs lyrics. Rihanna makes Miley Cyrus look like she's back playing Hannah Montana, and neither Madonna nor Lady Gaga has anything on her when it comes to being provocative. During one tour, she would select a male audience member to simulate sex with on stage. More than that, she is open and honest about it in real life as well. When reporters ask her about her sexually charged image, she has no problem answering. "I like to take charge, but I love to be submissive. Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your s**t. That's sexy to me," she told Rolling Stone. "I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned — you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs . . . I'd rather have him use his hands."
She Has Her Share of Celebrity Crushees
When the website Violet Grey asked Mad Men's January Jones who she would most like to go to bed with her answer was Rihanna. After Shakira shot the video for their duet "Can't Remember to Forget You," she gushed to Glamour, "Working with her was utopia. She's the sexiest woman on the planet." None of that is a surprise to her BFF Katy Perry. "It's disgusting how gorgeous she is," Perry told Rolling Stone. "Anytime I introduce my friends to her, male or female, the ride back always consists of, 'What, does she drink the blood of virgins?'" (Of course, Perry also told Elle Canada that her friend smokes a lot of pot and doesn't sleep... making her looks even more impressive.)
She Rocks a Bikini Like Nobody Else
Swimsuit models don't spend as much time in a bikini as Rihanna does. When the singer was her native Barbados' Ambassador for Youth and Culture, her role seemed to be more or less to show up all over the island showing off her lithe body in an assortment of string bikinis. She doesn't always wear the entire suit, but who are we to complain? She's been photographed so often in the string swimwear that a Google Images search for her wearing one returns results that keep going and going... and going.
She's Not a Victim
There is no getting away from the ugly incident that happened with former boyfriend Chris Brown. The photos of the singer with her faced bruised after Brown's attack are an indelible image. Rihanna does not allow that to define her, though. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, she stated that she has forgiven Brown and still considers him a friend. Whether that's a wise choice or not is debatable, but showing that you won't be kept down by a past abusive relationship evokes a strength that is extremely appealing.
She'll Change Her Looks if She Feels Like It
The singer's skin glows and her green eyes sparkle, so there are some natural elements to her beauty that are God-given. Beyond that, though, Rihanna does what she wants. Her hair color changes periodically as does it's length and style. When she's not naked or in a bikini, then she looks equally stunning in a simple wrap dress as she does in a formal gown. Heck, she can grab attention just by wearing jean shorts and a tank top. If there's a look that she can't pull off, we haven't seen it yet.
She's Not Fake
Besides being forthcoming in interviews, sharing her life (not to mention her dates with Drake) on Instagram, and not trying to put gag orders on her friends, Rihanna tends to stay true to herself in every way. Even when she endorses a product, it's something that you get the impression that she actually likes. Case in point, her clothing collections with River Island felt like the kinds of things that the singer would choose for herself. Being able to keep things real, even when you're an international singing star, is sexy in a way that has nothing to do with looks.
Pop star Kesha has made her first public appearance since leaving rehab earlier this month (Mar14). The TiK ToK singer looked a picture of health as she graced the red carpet at The Humane Society of the United States gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday night (29Mar14).
Sporting multi-coloured hair, a revealing black gown and a gold tooth, the 27 year old beamed for the cameras as she made her way into the event - her first official outing since completing a 60-day stint at the Timberline Knolls clinic in Illinois, where she focused on beating an eating disorder.
The star decided to drop the $ from her stage name after leaving the clinic.
Kanye West's fiancee Kim Kardashian has realised her fashion dreams after the celebrity couple landed the coveted cover of Vogue magazine. The front of the upcoming April (14) edition of the publication, which was released online on Friday (21Mar14), features the reality TV star in what appears to be a cream-coloured strapless wedding dress, with her rapper fiance hugging her from behind.
Under the headline "Kim & Kanye", the tag line reads, "Their fashionable life and surreal times. #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple".
The images were snapped by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz and, in a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, the new mum is featured holding her baby girl North as she lounges on a sofa in another stunning white gown, while proud dad West is also filmed holding his daughter while seated on a private jet.
Taking to Twitter.com to gush about the honour, Kardashian writes, "This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG (oh my god) (sic)!!! I can't even breathe!"
It is not clear if little North, who was shown wearing a white outfit in the behind-the-scenes clips, is actually included in the photos in the pages of Vogue, but if she is, it will mark the tot's photoshoot debut.
Kardashian has only previously shared images of North on her Instagram.com page.
The happy couple is reportedly set to wed in Paris, France in May (14).
"I styled it after the red dress that (Julia Roberts) wears in Pretty Woman. I saw it when I was in ninth grade, and I held on to the image of her in that red dress... in the four years I didn't deviate from my love of that dress. I just made a short - and what I thought was a cooler - version of that. Looking back, I could have done a lot worse!" Eva Mendes attempted to make her own version of a gown from movie Pretty Woman.
"I was wearing a sequined gown and $80,000 earrings, and there was a mechanical bull for guests to ride. I had to have a cowboy lift me up on the bull as my dress was too fitted to allow me to climb up myself. I was terrified that my jewellery would fly off and nervous to ride it in front of so many people, but it was such a liberating, amazing experience." Actress Lily Collins rode a mechanical bull despite the expensive gown and jewellery.
