Keira Knightley to play Coco Chanel, and Princess Diana's gowns raise a mint!
Today's news is all rounded up here for your reading pleasure. Enjoy:
Keira Knightley and Karl Lagerfeld are teaming up once again for a new short film to celebrate Chanel's 100th anniversary. The designer will direct Keira, who portrays Coco Chanel, in the film (she is also the face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle perfume). The movie is based in the seaside town of Deauville, where the first Chanel boutique opened, which has been recreated in Paris where it will be filmed later this week. [WWD]
Ten gowns that once belonged to Princess Diana have fetched over £800,000 for charity at auction. Among some of the most iconic dresses sold, was the blue velvet gown designed by Victor Edelstein, which Diana wore to a dinner at the White House and danced with John Travolta in 1985. This piece sold for a whopping £240,000. It was bought by a man as a surprise for his wife to "cheer her up." Surely diamonds would have sufficed? [Telegraph]
One of our favourites, Beth Ditto, has made headlines for the wrong reason. The Gossip singer was arrested over the weekend for disorderly conduct outside a bar in Portland. She was reportedly cut off from the bar then "walked out in the middle of the street, threw off her shoes and purse and screamed OBAMA! OBAMA!" Sounds like a good night out to me, he! And check out the seriously flattering mugshot. If only most of us looked that good after being cut off from the bar, sheesh.[The Cut]
Naomi Campbell is bringing her modelling reality show, The Face, to the UK. The series, which takes a bunch of wannabe models and makes them compete against one another *yawn* will be screened on Sky Living later this year. [Vogue UK]
Here's one that's got many gabbing today - Bradley Cooper and model Suki Waterhouse are a reportedly a thing. And by thing I mean an item. I know, right? Little 20-year-old Suki apparently caught the eye of 38-year-old Bradley earlier this year, and now they have been spotted out and about together in the US. Erm, is this not a bit creepy? [The Sun]
