Stars including Colin Firth, Jeremy Piven and Luke Evans turned out to support Samuel L. Jackson at his cancer charity gala in London on Sunday night (15Jun14). The Avengers star hosted the One For The Boys Fashion Ball at the city's Natural History Museum to pull in donations for the cancer awareness drive directed at men.
A host of celebrities flocked to the event, which coincided with the London Collections: Men catwalk shows, and the bash had a strong fashion focus.
Jackson, Piven and Evans all took to the runway at the event to show off designs from brands including Fendi and Alexander McQueen. Other stars to strut down the catwalk included Simon Pegg, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, comic David Walliams, actor Jesse Metcalfe and male models David Gandy and Oliver Cheshire.
Supporting the men from the audience were pop star Pixie Lott, who is dating Cheshire, TV personality Amanda Holden, and Oscar winner Colin Firth.
Singer Paloma Faith performed at the event.
Pop star Pixie Lott competed with Miley Cyrus in the controversy stakes during a party for the American singer in London by flashing her nipples in a tiny mesh top. The Wrecking Ball hitmaker threw a party at top nightspot Madame JoJo's in Soho and invited a number of celebrity guests, including Kate Moss and Skunk Anansie singer Skin.
Lott was among the revellers and arrived with her model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire, but she left onlookers stunned as she showed off her bare breasts through a revealing sheer crop top.
Obviously trying to compete with Cyrus' outlandish style, Lott added a pair of kooky yellow sunglasses to her ensemble.
However, Cyrus refused to be outdone, and left the venue in the early hours of Friday morning (09May14) wearing just a bra and low-slung jeans.
Stars including Lily Allen, Chris Martin and Alesha Dixon have loaned their voices to a new musical campaign raising awareness of dementia in the U.K. Officials at Britain's Alzheimer's Society have launched a new drive called 'Dementia friends', urging Brits to sign up to free sessions which would provide them with the skills to deal with sufferers of the memory-stealing disease.
In a commercial to accompany the scheme, a dementia sufferer kicks off a rousing rendition of The Beatles' hit With A Little Help From My Friends. Allen and Martin appear in separate videos, providing back-up vocals.
The footage also includes a rousing chorus of singers, many of whom are celebrities, including the likes of Dixon, pop star Pixie Lott, actor Simon Pegg, Ray Winstone, and Sir Terry Pratchett, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2007.
British singer Pixie Lott is adamant she did not strip naked for a new pop promo, insisting she wears a barely-there bodysuit in the clip. The Mama Do hitmaker released Nasty, the first single from her new, self-titled third album, on Monday (10Mar14) and the video for the track features a scene of an apparently nude Lott with just a purse preserving her modesty.
However, the singer has now spoken out to assure fans she did not disrobe for the promo and was covered with skin-coloured fabric.
Lott tells U.K. daytime show Loose Women, "You know I'm not (naked). It's an illusion. Potentially it could be but I am not actually, I've got a little bodysuit going on."
Sir Ben Kingsley, Jeremy Irons and Dominic West were among the British stars who helped recreate Ellen Degeneres' Oscars 'selfie' photograph at an awards show in London on Wednesday night (12Mar14). The Academy Awards host attempted to set a new world record for the most re-tweeted photo by gathering attendees including Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper together for a star-studded self-taken snapshot earlier this month (Mar14).
A group of British stars has now attempted to recreate the famous 'selfie' on the red carpet at the Prince's Trust awards.
The picture was taken by veteran actress Joan Collins and shows West, Kingsley and Irons squeezing into the shot along with pop star Pixie Lott, The Hobbit actor Luke Evans, and musician Jools Holland among others.
Singer Pixie Lott stunned students at a school in Kent, England on Wednesday (12Mar14) when she showed up for an unannounced concert to honour a fallen pal. Touched by one pupil's passionate essay about the death of his 15-year-old school friend Ben Daniels, who died after collapsing during a soccer training session in 2011, Lott agreed to perform at Ravens Wood School.
Following the tragedy, Ravens Wood teachers and students have become closely involved with charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), which boasts Lott as a patron.
She sang three songs and then answered questions from thrilled students.
Lott has been a patron of CRY for four years and previously wrote an awareness piece for Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper about soccer star Fabrice Muamba's collapse in 2012.
Paul Daniels, the father of the young student who died, was in the audience for her impromptu school show.
British pop star Pixie Lott was left distraught during a recent night out when a member of hip-hop collective Roll Deep vomited all over her. The Boys and Girls hitmaker was sitting on a table next to the band at a party, and she fled to the bathroom when one of the group approached her and threw up all over her outfit.
She tells Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "I was at a party and Roll Deep were on a table next to me. Next thing I knew, one of the boys from the band stood up and was sick all over me. It was terrible. I had to go to the toilet, take my long socks off and throw them in the bin (trash)."
The grime group has previously featured rappers including Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryder and Wiley.
Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, singer Pixie Lott, and funnywoman Ruby Wax were among guests at a party in London to raise money for Goldie Hawn's charity. The Private Benjamin star is the founder and chairman of the Hawn Foundation, an educational charity with plans to roll out new teaching techniques to U.K. schools.
Her fundraising party at Annabel's nightclub in the capital on Tuesday night (04Mar14) was also attended by former model Heather Kerzner, actress Claire Forlani, and Bananarama singers Karen Woodward and Sarah Dallin.
Lott performed at the event and later wrote on her Instagram.com page, "Goldie Hawn has a heart of gold so pleased lots of money was raised for the Hawn Foundation last night."
British singer Pixie Lott used the death of her grandmother as inspiration on her upcoming album. Her grandmother Amelia passed away in 2012, just as Lott was heading into the studio to begin work on the record. Amelia was suffering from Alzheimer's disease, which meant she often did not know who the singer was in her final months.
The Mama Do hitmaker called a temporary halt to recording the album to deal with the death and came back to write several personal tracks about her dark time.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "It's definitely the lowest point of my life so far. I've never had to deal with the loss of someone so close.
"It's sad. Alzheimer's meant she wasn't the same person she had been but I try to remember her for the person she was and I hope there's also a positive message in there."
Lott's third, self-titled album is due for release later this year (14).
British pop star Pixie Lott had to suffer in the cold winter weather while filming her role in U.K. detective drama Inspector George Gently. The Mama Do hitmaker plays a young holiday camp singer whose dead body is found washed up on a beach in an episode of the crime series and she admits the scene was tough to film.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "The first scene sees me dead on a beach. It was freezing and I had to lie on wet sand covered in cold water. But because I was supposed to be dead I couldn't shiver."
However, Lott insists the ordeal has not put her off acting, adding, "Fortunately you see what happened to her in a flashback and I do actually get to speak as well as do some singing and dancing. I really enjoyed it, so I'd like to do more acting in the future."
