Following a report that he requested not to be seen anywhere near the Kardashians at a recent event, it would appear that Leonardo DiCaprio is one fussy fella!

It has now been said that Kim and her family are not the only ones Leo would rather steer clear of, he isn’t a fan of Justin Bieber either!

Leonardo was in the VIP area of a nightclub in Cannes during the film festival recently when Justin and his crew asked would they join. They couldn’t.

A source said of the incident: “Justin was nodding and smiling in Leo’s direction, but Leo just shook his head no and waved him off. He thinks Justin’s a little twit. Leo doesn’t want or need photo-ops with hungry, manufactured pop stars.”

Hmm, we’re not so sure we blame him?!




American runner company, New Balance are filing a lawsuit against Karl Lagerfeld, claiming that the designer ripped off their trademark runners for his new haute couture shoes.

According to the lawsuit,New Balance claims that the only difference between their iconic shoes and Karl’s, is the capital “K” on Lagerfeld’s shoes.

The company said that they’ve had the same designs since the ‘70s and even some fashion blogs have commented on the similarities.

“Although we cannot comment on the specifics of the case, we believe it is vital to actively and vigorously defend our brand.”

Even though the Karl’s famous shoes are only available to buy with a full expensive haute couture, celebs such as Kristen Stewart have already been spotted wearing the controversial shoes in Cannes.

What do you think? Did Karl really rip off New Balance’s trademark designs for his new shoes?




Cheryl Cole has revealed her top style crush – Victoria Beckham!

The pop star has been having a ball at the Cannes Film Festival this month and lusting after the stunning designer gowns on the red carpet.

Cheryl said, ”Blake Lively has looked gorgeous this time in Cannes, but if I think of someone who always gets it right every single time, then Victoria Beckham. She looked stunning at the Met Ball with David recently.”

After five years in the Cannes spotlight representing L’OREAL Paris, Cheryl has learnt what works best for her on the red carpet and what really doesn’t!

”A couple of years back, I was having my nails painted while I was getting ready and as I got out of the car to walk the red carpet I smudged my wet burgundy nails on my white gown,” said the X Factor judge.

”I was horrified, but I just smiled and walked and kept my hand over the stain. The next day the newspapers reported that I had a perfect manicure; if only they knew.

”Now, I go for a neutral nail and avoid any rich body lotions before I get dressed – although I do love a tinted skin shimmer if I’m wearing black or a dark dress.,” she said.

Thanks for the style tips Cheryl!




Red carpet goddess Blake Lively has shared some style tips for turning heads at super-glam bashes such as Cannes.

The Gossip Girl actress will only wear clothes she feels confident in when she has a big event to go to because she finds posing for the cameras nerve-wracking.

She said, ”Being on the red carpet tends to be stressful because there are a million cameras and some are looking for that embarrassing photo.

”So my advice is always feel comfortable in what you’re wearing – and that includes your clothes, your shoes, your make-up. That is what will make you feel the most confident.

”Of course, I don’t mean comfortable like sweats and Uggs.”

Blake loves getting glamorous in floor-length gowns and prefers having her hair down in loose waves.

The 26-year-old actress said, ”Honestly, though, I enjoy getting ready for big events – it’s like grown-up dress-up.

”Often you see people on the red carpet with tight up-dos, but that makes me feel stiff. For me, effortless hair is much more romantic and lived in.”

We hear you Blake!



We previously talked about our love for that amazing infographic of every Oscar’s Best Actress gown since 1929.

And now to celebrate the style of the Cannes Film Festival, another infographic has been created to highlight the most iconic dresses at the film festival from 1953 to 2013.

We love seeing how much style has changed over the decades, and especially the different actresses who have made the list throughout the years, too.

We predict that the gorgeous Blake Lively will definitely be the iconic Cannes dress of 2014, due to her rocking the red carpet in that amazing Chanel Couture dress.




Heidi Klum has jumped to Justin Bieber’s defence after he was accused of groping her at Cannes.

The supermodel spoke out about the claims involving the Baby singer – who was photographed alongside Heidi at the amfAR Gala in a snap that appeared to capture the singer touching her chest.

Heidi insisted Justin was NOT feeling her up, adding that he was in fact, a “very polite” young man.

“He was totally not touching me, by the way,” said Heidi. “It maybe looks like that because sometimes in pictures things look a little . . . I’m like, what are they talking about?”

“He’s very polite and very nice,” Heidi said of the Boyfriend singer.

Well, that’s us told!




Cheryl Cole is said to be madly love after a whirlwind romance with her new French boyfriend.

Oh là là!

Cheryl apparently started dating Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini (what a mouthful!) over a month ago, before making it official this week at the Cannes Film Festival.

She kept that one quiet!

While Cheryl was rumoured to be dating her BFF Kimberly Walsh’s brother Adam – she is said to have fallen fast for the French hottie instead!

After the pair appeared at glitzy showbiz parties in Cannes – and dined at luxury restaurant Cosy Box – they were said to be one of the ”most electric” couples at the event.





Uh oh, didn’t she predict this?

It looks like Jennifer Lawrence has angered A LOT of people with an inappropriate joke she made at the Cannes Film Festival recently.

When Jen was approached by Gravity director, Alfonso Cuarón, at a party, she was overheard saying to him: “I broke out my rape scream for you!”

As much as we love Jennifer, we don’t think it’s ever okay to joke about rape, on any level.

The actress had previously said in an interview with Marie Claire that her time at the top may be coming to an end: “Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it. The whole time I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me.”

Eek, could this be the end of the love affair between Jen and the public?



Say it isn’t so!

Split rumours are rife as Ryan Gosling got very cosy with his stunning co-star at Cannes, while girlfriend Eva Mendes stayed at home.

Ryan was at the Cannes Film Festival promoting his directorial début, Lost River and was spotted getting close with the movie’s leading lady, Christina Hendricks.

Ryan and Christina are said to have had amazing chemistry onset and are reportedly spending a LOT of time together since the movie wrapped.

The pair got very friendly when they starred together in Drive a couple of years ago, but have reportedly gotten even closer since.

Things are said to have gotten pretty tense at Cannes as Christina’s hubby Geoffrey Arend – who was at the festival- was seen frantically trying to keep the pair apart when they weren’t on the red carpet.

He has his work cut out for him there!




Cheryl Cole has done it again!

The internet is buzzing with talk of how stunning the X Factor judge looked at the Cannes Film Festival in France last night, where she totally OWNED that red carpet.

Cheryl wore a stunning flowing black textured dress with a raised front by Monica Lhuillier.

The dress was worn by the Girls Aloud singer to attend the première of Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carrell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo.

Cheryl paired the beautiful dress with monochrome earring and a pretty updo.





Poor Ryan Reynolds!

The actor is being consoled by his beautiful wife Blake Lively after his film, The Captive, was booed at the Cannes Film Festival.

Ryan stars in The Captive alongside Rosario Dawson but the movie was met with a bad reception when it was screened at the French festival.

It also received a scathing review from Variety magazine who called it “a ludicrous abduction thriller.”

The actor and his wife also chose to skip the after-party – with many speculating it was down to the bad reviews.

Thankfully, Blake was on hand to make her husband feel better about the whole affair, with a source saying: [It] looked like Blake was trying to cheer him up a few times … she rubbed his arm like she was consoling him and kept whispering in his ear.”



Robert Pattinson has admitted that a sex scene in a car with his co-star Julianne Moore left him in a sweat.

The 28-year-old played out some backseat action with the actress in David Cronenberg’s new satire on Hollywood, Maps To The Stars.

And it is not the first time Rob has got up close and very personal with an actress in a car – all in the name of art.

He also seduced Juliette Binoche in a limo in his previous collaboration with the Canadian director in Cosmopolis.

Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival this week, Rob said the sex scene with Julianne was a “wonderful experience” but also, “very sweaty”.

When asked to name which of his onscreen passengers was the better lover, Pattinson joked, “They’re both seven!” before quickly adding, “Obviously, Julianne”, as the actress sat very close beside him!

Director Cronenberg chipped in, “I don’t think I’m breaking any new territory when there’s a scene of people having sex in cars. ‘Why wouldn’t you? There’s such great cars around.”

Rob was doubling up while in Cannes as he was also at the film festival to promote his other movie, The Rover.
