Mariah Carey’s shoe collection shocks hubby
Mariah CareyPregnant Mariah Carey’s husband Nick Cannon has requested her to bid adieu to her famous high heels now that she’s expecting the couple’s first child. Cannon is already worried she might topple over again - like she did during a concert in Singapore in September. During his US radio show, “Rollin’ With Nick Cannon”, he grumbled about his battle to keep his glamorous wife off heels.

"I come home yesterday to help my wife get ready for her video shoots and she has these 19-inch heels on," said Cannon.

"So I go into the closet searching for some flats for my wife. She got a lot of damn shoes - it’s like a freakin’ MACy’s. But Mariah Carey does not own one pair of flat shoes.

Mariah Carey High Heels"And then we did find some flats and they were a regular ballet slipper. I was like, I don’t think so."

Carey called in to defend herself and said: "To be fair, I had some boots from Aspen, some Dior boots!"

But Cannon wasn’t happy with the idea of his wife tramping around New York in "ski boots" and added, "I’m going shoe shopping today, needless to say, to buy you some flat shoes."
Christina Hendricks obsessed for red hair
Christina HendricksHollywood actress Christina Hendricks’ red hair is a result of her childhood obsession with a fairy-tale character. The naturally blonde beauty insisted as a child she was "obsessed" with the children’s book ‘Anne Of Green Gables’ and started colouring her hair red at the age of ten to imitate her literary heroine. "When I was 10, I was obsessed with ‘Anne Of Green Gables’ and I wanted to have her beautiful red hair. So my mother said, ‘Let’s just go to the drugstore and get one of those cover-the-grey rinses!’ My hair was very blonde at the time but it went carrot red. I was over the moon - and I went back to that colour again and again.

Now the ‘Mad Men’ star has realised that the shade attracts a lot of attention and helps people identify her. "I’ve always attracted attention for the way I look and that’s not a bad thing if you’re trying to make your mark in the business. But after a while you just want people to notice you for your work!" said the 35-year-old actress.

The curvaceous beauty also said that her UK size 14 figure makes it tedious to convince designers to make her dresses, but she always opts for outfits that would make her look "pretty", regardless of their style.

"At the end of the day, you have to remind yourself to wear the things you love - go with what you think is pretty. I’m still struggling to get designers to give me some dresses," she added.

What Rocky is trying to do with this collection is asking why stick with the mould? Break it and try something new," said Dia.

"Just because it is a bridal collection, we don’t have to be completely Indian in our approach. We are today’s people and we dress up in a very different manner than just wearing a typical lehenga or a salwar kameez," he added.

The designer’s collection, along with Indian lehenga’s and sarees, also included varied cocktail dresses and westernised kurtis and tights.

The show also had something for the men. Male models showcased what a bridegroom can look forward to this wedding season. Velvet blazers, bright, embroidered and plain sherwanis and classic tuxedos completed the men’s collection.

Carey said that she is always looking for new ways to express herself creatively and jumped at the chance to develop her own collection of shoes and jewelry and more.

Once she, HSN CEO Mindy Grossman and designer Joan Boyce put their heads together – part of which was a meeting in Carey’s own shoe closet – the ideas for a more complete lifestyle brand started flowing.

The shoes will be priced from about 69.90 dollars to 199.90 dollars, while the jewelry will be available from 39.99 dollars to 199.95 dollars.
Russell Brand gets namesake bullock from PETA India
Russell Brand - Katy PerryActor and long-time animal rights defender Russell Brand and wife singer Katy Perry have received an unusual wedding gift from two animal rights groups in India - a bullock named after Brand. The two were married at an exclusive resort in Rajasthan last week. The bullock, or young bull, was a present from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India and Animal Rahat, a nonprofit organization that provides free aid to animals.

Brand was named the "sexiest vegetarian alive" by PETA UK in 2007.

"Russell the celebrity and Russell the bullock have something in common, they are both very handsome fellows," said Poorva Joshipura at PETA India.

"The gift of a namesake is also fitting because just as Russell Brand embarks on his new life as a married man, Russell the bullock has also been given a new lease on life - the heavy loads he once pulled have been lifted from his shoulders for good."

PETA India has yet to hear from Brand in response to the gift.

James Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 car sells for $4.6 million
James Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5An American businessman has bought James Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 for 2.9 million pounds ($4.59 million) at a London auction. The car driven by Sean Connery in his portrayal of the suave but lethal British secret agent in the ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Thunderball’ Bond films sold for less than its 3.5 million pound pre-sale estimate to businessman Harry Yeaggy, auctioneers RM Auctions said in a statement after the sale.

"This is a car that I’ve always wanted, after all it is the most famous car in the world," said Yeaggy. "My plan is to display it in my private car museum in Ohio just as it is."

Yeaggy is only the second ex-factory owner of the distinctive silver-colored car. Seller Jerry Lee, an American radio broadcaster based in Philadelphia, PA, purchased the car direct from the Aston Martin Lagonda factory for $12,000 in 1969.

The car is one of two, and the sole remaining, of the original ‘007’ DB5s that appeared on screen with Connery behind the wheel in ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Thunderball’.

The model was sold complete with its ‘Q-Branch’ gadgets including machine guns, bullet-proof shield, revolving number plates, tracking device, removable roof panel, oil slick sprayer, nail spreader and smoke screen.

Several of the gadgets are fully operational, although the machine guns are not real.

Lee plans to use the proceeds from the sale for charity.

In addition to the car, the Yeaggy receives an exclusive seven-night stay for 10 guests at the newly opened GoldenEye Resort in Jamaica - Bond author Ian Fleming’s Caribbean estate - and a gold thread bespoke suit from Savile Row tailors Gieves & Hawkes.

Akshay KumarAkshay Kumar might call himself the ‘lowest paid actor’ in Bollywood but that doesn’t seem to limit his generosity. The actor, who is known for his charitable work, has donated a whopping sum of Rs 50 lakhs for Salman Khan’s charity organization ‘Being Human’. What’s more is that Akshay intends to double this amount before the year ends. And Salman is much too touched by Akshay’s sweet gesture.

Said a source said, “For years, Akshay has been working for various causes. But he has always been wary of transferring funds to charitable institutions. Now in Being Human, Akshay has found a charitable trust that he can trust.”

However there is another side to Akki’s sudden generosity. As per reports, Akshay’s decision to donate such a big amount stems from the fact that Salman did a cameo in his co-production, ‘Tees Maar Khan’, free of cost.

And post Salman’s act, Akshay told Salman of his availability for any event related to ‘Being Human’.
