Brit singer and Simon Cowell buddy Leona Lewis has one of the best clothing items for the fall climate — a sweater coat! Not quite a coat, but more substantial than a regular cardigan, the sweater coat just might become your favorite companion as you brave the unpredictable fall weather. We especially like the ones with unusual patterns and textures, but simple neutrals is a great place to start if you’re new to the trend. See how you can steal Leona’s style after the jump.

No, the trend of celebrities transitioning into fashion designers hasn’t ended yet, and with Fashion Month fully underway, it’s inevitable that a few more Hollywood stars will announce their plans to venture into the designing world. Today’s news comes from Leona Lewis, who has taken her inspiration from Stella McCartney. As a practicing vegetarian, Leona, like Natalie Portman, who used to design a line of vegan shoes for Te Casan, refuses to wear any clothes made with animal products. Hence, she’s launching her own vegan line.
“I’m trying to make that happen as soon as I can. It’s a challenge — mostly with shoes — as I don’t wear any leather and am very ethical about what I wear. I love wearing Stella McCartney, but one day I hope to have to my own line of ethical clothes and accessories.”
“I’m from Hackney, so I’m hard. I’m not going to let something like that bother me There was always some kind of craziness going on in my neighborhood … It’s horrible, no matter who you are, to be physically attacked by someone, but I’m not letting it worry me. I know it was an isolated incident. It’s just a shame it happened at all. I’m now trying to put it in the past and get over it. I’m a positive person and I try to look at the good side of everything.”
Turns out Pamela Anderson isn’t the only star dating an electrician. British pop singer Leona Lewis has been getting loads of flack for staying with her boyfriend of seven years, Lou Al-Chamaa, also a master of all things electric. She’s pissed that everyone’s heckling her. “It does make me angry,” she said. “Because he’s a great person. And it doesn’t matter what you do in life, what your job is, where you come from. For people to think that you should leave someone because, all of a sudden, you’re a singer and you have opportunities. I feel very sorry for them.” Leona’s sparky (which is apparently slang for electrician) also happens to be hawt, which sweetens the deal. [People] Keep reading »
- Leona Lewis was slapped by a “fan,” who police have arrested, at her Dreams book signing. [PopEater] — No one seems to know why he slapped her, but this will probably affect how close fans are allowed to get to her in the future. My theory is the fan got upset because Leona was pretending to be a diva.
- A bald Tom Cruise showed his wry sense of humor when he made a cameo in “Tropic Thunder,” but I bet you’ll find other favorite movie cameos on this list. [Starpulse] — I’m slightly embarrassed to admit this, but Keith Richards in “Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World’s End” is one of my faves because I have a weird thing for him, even though “Birth of A Nation” is one of his favorite movies.
VH1 is bringing back its “VH1 Divas” concert series Sept. 17 after a four-year hiatus. But don’t get too excited yet. Some idiot over at the network thinks Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, and Adele should join the ranks of Mary J. Blige, Cher, Aretha Franklin, and Celine Dion, who have all been honored on the broadcast concert before. These four young singers, however, are not divas — they’re not even on their way to becoming divas! Keep reading »

If you’re not getting enough of Mariah Carey in the tabloids and press these days, just wait a few months. Carey has been in discussions about creating “Glitter” the musical, as we’re calling the Broadway production about her life. A source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper that she’s not sure whether she’ll play herself yet, but the likes of Vanessa Hudgens and Eva Longoria-Parker are being considered. Who knew the “Desperate Housewife” could sing? Carey supposedly wants Leona Lewis to play her; she would be better able than most at tackling Carey’s eight-octave vocal range, after all. Plus, we already know she can play crazy from the UK video for “Bleeding Love.” [Daily Mirror UK] Keep reading »
