Kate Middleton Pregnant with Twins is Possibly a Hoax

kate_middleton

Rumors suggesting the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with twin girls may just turn out to be false, according to voices within celebrity gossip circles.

Similar Kate Middleton’s pregnancy rumors have surfaced in the past, and the latest one was reported on Star Magazine. The tabloid alleged that Middleton had been 12 weeks pregnant, and claimed that Kensington Palace confirmed the news that left Prince William excited.

Kensington has neither acknowledged nor denied the recent pregnancy rumors, and major news networks remain silent on this matter.

With the dust settling, this latest round of gossip seems largely confined to the tabloids. Allegation of Royal Misinformation Celebrity Dirty Laundry has accused Kensington of baiting the media with the twin pregnancy allegation to deflect attention away from Kate’s latest accidental ‘bare bum’ photo that was published in May by German tabloid Bild.

The incident in question happened during the Royal Tour of Australia, where Prince William and Kate were visiting the Blue Mountains near Sydney. Kate, who was wearing a dress at the time, was briefly exposed by wind from a helicopter. A nearby photographer captured the moment.

No Clear Evidence of Pregnancy at Public Appearance Events Even so, Kate Middleton did not appear 12 weeks pregnant while at the Order of Garter ceremony, in a series of photos published on Monday by the Mirror.

During a visit to Scotland in May, Kate and husband Prince William were photographed downing shots of Scottish whiskey at the Glenturret distillery – making pregnancy claims even less likely.

The royal couple gave birth to their first and only child, Prince George, on July 22, 2013. Prince George is currently in line for Britain’s royal throne.

The TV stars stepped out to film new Keeping Up With The Kardashians scenes in LA wearing matching outfits.

Khloe, 29, and Kylie both rocked red and black plaid shirts with a plain tee and distressed pale blue skinny jeans.

Chunky calf-length boots accessorised the girls’ almost identical ensembles.

The only difference between the stunning siblings came with contrasting hairstyles.

Khloe decided to leave her golden layers loose whereas Kylie, 16, wore her highlighted locks in a high ponytail.

Oscars 2014 fashion: Best and worst dressed, from Jennifer Lawrence to Angelina Jolie

main

These days, the fashion on the Oscars red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre generates as many headlines as who wins those little gold guys inside.

But, put a foot wrong on this red carpet and the pictures will haunt an actor for the rest of their career.

Which explains why many are reluctant to take any risks with their look. Jennifer Lawrence opts out of the dress race completely by always wearing the same designer, while Tom Ford calls it ‘a bubble of 1950s Barbie clothes’.

Hopes for some maverick style choices from the class of 2014 were therefore not overly high. However, some did try to burst Tom’s bubble – thank God for Lupita Nyong’o.

Here’s our top 3 best and worst dressed picks on a night when the dresses – and tuxedos – were pale and occasionally interesting.

Best dressed

1. Lupita Nyong’o

1

Newcomer Lupita has definitely won red carpet season and signed off with a beautiful plunging Nairobi inspired powder blue Prada gown, complete with a simple crystal hairband. Sounds twee on paper but stunning and fresh in the flesh.

2. Jennifer Lawrence

2

She kept us waiting but Jennifer provided the perfect scarlet sign-off to this year’s red carpet in a fitted strapless red Dior gown with peplum detail and another backwards necklace. And obviously not wanting to break with tradition, she also took an early tumble on her way up the carpet. Red hot from J. Law.

3. Naomi Watts

Naomi kept it simple in white Calvin Klein Collection ice beaded cap sleeve dress with a spider’s web Bulgari necklace. Her look was refreshing on a night when many went for the Disney princess look.

Worst dressed

1. Kristin Bell

4

Kristen’s Roberto Cavalli dress summed up everything we find dull about Oscars fashion at the moment. In insipid lilac and looking like something you’d wear to your prom – or your wedding – it was too sickly sweet. And we’re not sure about the two lifeless strands of hair hanging down either to be honest.

2. Charlize Theron

5

Charlize definitely lost out to Jennifer in the Dior wars. The shape of this gown is gorgeous but those thick ‘invisible’ straps holding it up ruin the whole look. Perhaps we should just zoom out so we can’t see them.

3. Amy Adams

6

There may well be many who disagree but this tuxedo inspired navy Gucci gown just felt a little underwhelming. It’s sleek and a great colour but this is more dinner at the White House than Oscars red carpet.

Electric Blue Liner is Having a Moment

elle-creatures-of-the-wind-beauty-L9nh7e-h

For their fall ’14 show—a collection that ELLE’s fashion editor Danielle Prescod dubbed “city girl meets the rustic outdoors”—Creatures of The Wind wanted to achieve transcendence—a theme that inspired key makeup artist James Boehmer to create a sense of “purity and illumination” via luminous skin and a flash of aquamarine on the eyes.

Backstage, he pointed out how swiping a metallic blue liner along the lower inner lash creates a lit-from-within look. “Using blue puts light on the eyes and makes them look whiter,” he tells.

To apply: Look up and apply liner to the lower water line with short but gentle strokes. Do not apply on the top lid for a modern look that, according to Boehmer, “works with every girl’s eye shape.”

Case in point: Jessica Biel, who smudged a similar hue along her outer lash line at the MoMA 2013 Film Benefit last November. Whether worn as a whisper at Creatures, or more boldly à la Biel, teal liner is finding its niche.

Unlike the color’s brash turn back in the ’80s, this reinterpretation is as sophisticated as it is unexpected.

Transcendent, indeed.

Sarah Jessica Parker To Curate New Jewelry Venture, WeTheAdorned

A new way to grow your jewelry collection will be hitting the web this spring: WeTheAdorned will be introducing their membership-based e-comm destination, with help from Sarah Jessica Parker.

The actress-slash-shoe designer will be curating the jewelry offerings, which will feature pieces that have been specifically designed for the site, by the likes of Erickson Beamon, Lulu Frost, Paige Novick, Fenton Fallon and Pamela Love.

Each designer has been given artistic license to design whatever they like, using bronze, 24-karat gold, diamonds, emeralds, and any other precious or semiprecious stones.

Memberships will be offered at a premium and non-premium level, and the site is now open for early sign-up, although the annual fee for both levels has yet to be determined.

The founders of the site, Tim McElwee and Cyia Batten, are also the designers behind jewelry line, T. Cyia. The duo raised money for their latest venture via Kickstarter in June 2013.

WeTheAdorned will fill a niche that fits in somewhere between the sparkly baubles sold at places like Tiffany & Co., and the affordable gems offered at BaubleBar. Geographically speaking, all the designs be manufactured in America; on the business front, the company’s structure will allow most of the revenue from the sales to flow back to the designer.
