The late Princess Diana and the very-much-alive Kate Middleton strut side-by-side on the latest cover of Newsweek. It’s shocking, yes, but it also strikes me as tasteless to play around with the image of a dead person who left behind two children. This Photoshopped cover image appears on a Newsweek double-issue in which editor-in-chief Tina Brown, who published a book about Diana in 2007, opines on what Diana would have been like had she lived to her 50th birthday. (She would have owned an iPhone, got Botox, worn J.Crew, and moved to New York City, Brown imagines.) That is a legitimate enough topic to explore, of course. But Photoshopping Middleton next to her husband’s dead mother in order to sell magazines feels unseemly to me.

Since the royal couple have announced their engagement, we have been inundated with news of their every breath and kept abreast of their general goings on. There’s so much royal news that it’s difficult to take it all in. Usually I glaze over it. Kate styles herself? Pippa has a nice bum? I can get veneers with Willy and Kate’s face? Who cares. Today, however, I came across two truly noteworthy royal news items. Check them out after the jump. Keep reading »
Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress? You ain’t seen nothing. The sparkly Jenny Packham gown worn by the newly minted Mrs. Wales is a stunner. It’s from Packham’s spring 2011 collection and Middleton wore it to a charity gala at Kensington Palace in London last night. I don’t know what’s more gorgeous: the princess or the dress!

The newly married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appear on the cover of the July issue of Vanity Fair in a never before seen photo shot by Mario Testino. The famed photog snapped this pic on the same day that he shot the couple’s official engagement photo, which explains the happiness beaming from their face. Cute! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
The royal wedding was a lot of fun. But today, I cringed for the newlyweds when I stumbled across the headline “Royal Couple May Not Be Able To Conceive.” This is taking things way too far. First of all, William and Kate are still on their honeymoon. Can we give them five minutes to enjoy married life together without pressuring them to make a royal baby? Keep reading »
“I was not invited. I went through the phase of feeling so totally worthless. I wanted to be there with my girls, to be getting them dressed and to go as a family. Also, it was so hard, because the last bride up that aisle was me.”
—Sarah Ferguson talks to Oprah about being left off the guest list for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, while her daughters Beatrice and Eugenie attended and fascinated us with their fascinators. Instead Fergie, who married Prince Andrew in 1986, watched on a TV set from the resort where she was staying in Camelia. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Now that the Royal Wedding of the Millennium is over, experts are analyzing every little piece of information about the big event. Like the news that Kate Middleton‘s hair dressers practiced her big day ‘do with a $10 tiara purchased at a friggin’ Claire’s Accessories. Oh hellz no, the plastic crown didn’t touch Kate’s locks–it was tested on the head of an assistant, in a dark back room, with the windows taped over, to ensure that absolutely no one would see the hair work in action before the big day. Apparently it all paid off — Middleton’s hairdresser, James Pryce, won big props for keeping Kate’s long and loose. But the look was slightly more complex than it appeared. The real tiara — loaned to Kate by the Queen — was actually stitched into a braid in Kate’s hair. Ingenious! [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »
Some secret that was! Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived in the Seychelles this morning for their honeymoon, a spokesperson for the country’s department of tourism confirmed today. The couple will be staying in a “secluded villa” on a private island, the identity of which is unknown. These two understandably wanted to keep their honeymoon between the two of them; Kate reportedly was kept in the dark about the destination so it’d be a total surprise. Oh well. Sometime tells me their exclusive island surrounded by bodyguards won’t be too easy to access. I hope the paparazzi leave Kate and William alone on their Seychelles honeymoon so they can f**k like bunnies in peace. And with villas a reported $6,600 a night, it had better be private.

The world was thoroughly enchanted with Pippa Middleton‘s butt in her white maid-of-honor dress at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding. And naturally, people want to see more of her … body. Vivid Entertainment has apparently offered Pippa $5 million to shoot a single explicit scene in a porno. Vivid president Steven Hirsh says he was even more enticed by Pippa after seeing the “Girls Gone Wild”-ish photo of her dancing in her bra with an equally drunk, undressed chap. “After seeing photos of you having a great time at a party, I decided to offer you a role in one of our upcoming movies,” Hirsch wrote.
Apparently, James Middleton’s nude photos have also netted him a porno offer. Keep reading »
With Kate and William‘s modern wedding and all, it may be easy to forget that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is set to become THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND! Insane. And with such a looming title ahead of her, comes, well, looming titles for other people. Like her sister, Pippa Middleton.
The world is still squeezing every last opulent drop of Royal Wedding juice out of the fruit that bore it (Wills and Kate). And because of this, we’re bound to be left with a watery — but delicious — slushy of rumors and truths. Some are easy to verify. Did Kate just go grocery shopping? Yes. Did she look amazing doing so? Hell yes! Has she really never been to the U.S. before? Nope. And is Pippa, her younger sister, set to become her Lady in Waiting? Please, let’s hope not! Keep reading »
