One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles was honoured with the 2013 British Style Award in London on Monday night (02Dec13). The 19-year-old singer was praised for his excellent fashion sense during the British Fashion Awards.
Styles nabbed the accolade from three-time winner, model and TV personality Alexa Chung, who presented him with the award, and he gave a very brief speech thanking all those who voted for him.
He saw off tough competition from David Beckham, Kate Moss, the Dutchess of Cambridge and model Cara Delevingne.
Edie Campbell reigned supreme in the Model Of The Year category, Burberry claimed Brand of the Year and Kate Moss, who was honoured for her 25-year modelling career, took home the Special Recognition Award.
Singer Harry Styles refused to stick with tradition and crashed his model ex Cara Delevingne's sister's bachelorette bash in London on Saturday night (30Nov13). Poppy Delevingne threw a wild retro-themed party at the U.K. capital's posh Groucho Club, which was attended by her supermodel sister and famous female friends including actresses Sienna Miller and Jaime Winstone and TV presenter Alexa Chung.
Styles, who was once linked to Cara, did not want to miss out on the fun - he turned up to the bash, which was in celebration of Poppy's final days as a single woman ahead of her wedding to James Cook.
The One Direction star donned a blond wig to impersonate a member of 1990s band Hanson, along with radio star Nick Grimshaw and a female pal.
The trio partied at the club until the early hours of Sunday morning (01Dec13), when Styles left the venue wearing a huge elephant mask.
He later posted a snap of himself posing with Miller on his Instagram, and wrote: "I was part of Hanson."
Meanwhile, supermodel Cara had an embarrassing end to the night - she gave a woman driver a shock by hopping into the backseat of her car after mistaking it for a taxi cab.
Singer Neneh Cherry made an impressive comeback in London on Tuesday night (12Nov13) ahead of her first album release in 17 years. The Swedish star is gearing up to release a new record in early 2014, her first solo studio album since 1996's Man, and she marked her impending chart return by taking to the stage in front of a star-studded crowd in the U.K. capital.
Cherry played several old and new tracks at the bash to celebrate the first birthday of hotspot Sushi Samba at Heron Tower in front of celebrity guests including Leona Lewis, Alexa Chung, Mark Ronson and his DJ sister Samantha.
British pop star Mollie King is turning catwalk queen by joining the same model agency as Alexa Chung and Suki Waterhouse. Bosses at Next Models in London have added The Saturdays star to their books alongside a host of fashionable faces.
The blonde beauty says, "When I was approached by Next, I was so surprised, so excited. I feel really flattered to be placed alongside the names they already have, it's incredible. I'm used to having the girls around me, so it is a bit scary to be doing things on my own, but they were all so excited for me. I'm really looking forward to the next step."
As well as style icon Chung and Burberry model Waterhouse, who is dating Hollywood star Bradley Cooper, Next Models also represents singer King's fellow pop stars Rita Ora and Lana Del Rey, as well as model Alice Dellal.
King already has connections to the fashion world - she's previously dated top male model David Gandy.
TV presenter/socialite Alexa Chung is glad she took time away from dating after splitting from Arctic Monkeys rocker Alex Turner as she had no idea how to cope without a man in her life. The former MTV girl broke up with Turner in 2011 after four years together, and the romance had come hot on the heels of her three-and-a-half year relationship with photographer David Titlow.
Chung was left distraught by the split and has only allowed herself several casual flings since the break-up, because single life made her realise she did not even know how to change TV channels properly.
She tells Britain's The Guardian, "I'm not heartbroken any more, but I definitely was... It was various people. There was one big thing, and then there were various ill-advised flings I had to get over him, so yeah... But is this gross to talk about? I feel he wouldn't talk about it. I don't know how relevant it is now, whereas if you asked me at the time, 'How you doing?' No one even asked... But I don't know whether to be open and vulnerable about it and say, 'I had a s**t time', or to be quiet...
"But I don't want to imply he broke my heart. I was grieving for the loss of something... I'm grateful for the experience of that s**t time, and for being on my own. I'd never really been on my own before - I'd always gone from one relationship to the next - so I had to learn all this stupid stuff. Like, how do I work my f**king TV? And now there isn't a dude to tell me how to put up the blinds. But it's good to learn how to work your way round a drill."
However, Chung reveals she still remains close to Turner, adding, "Oh yeah, he's my best friend."
Model and TV host Alexa Chung is to launch a makeup line. Chung, who is also a contributing editor for British Vogue, is teaming up with Eyeco to advise the brand on products. She'll also feature in the firm's ad campaign.
She says, "It's a creative relationship. I send images and different inspirations to Max and Nina (the creators of Eyeco) and we go from there. It's quite free form at the moment."
The line will be out in November and will feature a limited edition liquid eye liner and mascara set bearing Chung's name and art.
She continues, "Liquid liner is my savior. Other people like other things to feel like they look normal, but for me, I'm pretty much naked without my eyeliner on. It's my comfort blanket."
British TV host Alexa Chung still suffers "flashbacks" from her days as a teen model when she was allegedly forced to strip off in front of strangers to land jobs. The small screen star launched her career as a fashion model and admits she often had to take off all her clothes at castings in a bid to win work.
However, Chung insists she "knew it was wrong" to be asked to strip, but never told her parents about what was going on.
She tells Britain's The Times, "I never really asked my mum or my dad's advice during that time and it actually felt like I didn't want to tell them too much about the reality of what was going on - when I was taking the train to London and being asked to do certain things. I already knew it was wrong. So, you know, if there was a casting where some creepy man there had gone on to his flat in Ilford (in Essex, England), and (said), you know, 'Take your clothes off...' and if I'd have done it, I won't tell my mum because I know that's wrong.
"Well, you had lots of castings where they were like, 'This is for swimwear', and in hindsight, I look back and think, 'Did you really need an 18-year-old girl to strip in your front room?'
"I get flashbacks now. Loads of flashbacks. I'll be reminded of something because I've sort of blocked it out and I don't really think of those days. Like, recently, I was like, "Oh my God. That's so not on.'"
Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway helped to raise more than $2 million (£1.3 million) for the U.K. art community at a New York City gala on Wednesday (08May13). The Sex and the City star served as an honorary chair for the Tate Americas Foundation Triennial Artists Dinner, which was held to generate support for The Tate, a network of four museums in the U.K. housing British, international and contemporary art.
Parker admitted she was thrilled to get involved with the fundraiser as she loves visiting the museum every time she jets into London.
She tells GuestOfAGuest.com, "I love this museum. I have a routine. I get off the plane in London, and I drop my suitcase at the hotel, and I go immediately to the Tate. It started years and years ago, and I can't explain it. It's inexplicable. Why do we love a boy? Why do we love a book? Why do I love the Tate? I don't know. It's just a wonderful, exciting place to see old works and new works and I've always had this great affection for it. I think it's amazing, and everyone I know that steps into that museum is always thrilled by what they see - young and old."
R&B star Ciara, British TV host Alexa Chung and Martha Stewart also showed up to mingle with artists and benefactors at the glitzy event. Profits will be used to acquire new artwork for The Tate.
Ten years after we watched her walk down the aisle in Love, Actually, Keira Knightley has tied the knot in real life. The Anna Karenina actress has married her beau of two years, Klaxons keyboard player James Righton, according to People.
The couple wed in a small town outside of Marseilles Saturday, where onlookers watched Knightley marry Righton in an unconventional, short tulle wedding dress, complete with a Chanel jacket. According to People, 50 to 100 guests were invited to the nuptials. "It was not a long service," one source tells the publication. "The ceremony occured just before noon and lasted only about 30 minutes. Keira looked beautiful."
The couple, who were introduced to one another through mutual friend Alexa Chung, wed one year after they got engaged in May 2012.
