Kate Middleton Cover Shows Duchess With Rotten Teeth


Kate Middleton has become the latest to suffer at the hands of America's long held mockery of British teeth, after the front cover of their political magazine The New Republic showed a picture of the royal possessing a smile of some somewhat gnarly looking teeth. Now, we all know that Middleton has one of the finest smile in Britain and that this picture of her is somewhat short of the truth.
No surprise either to see that the UK's Daily Mail is outraged at the cover, and pointed out that the Duchess of Cambridge had spent thousands on getting her gnashers fixed up last year, dentist Bernard Touati explaining that she had some "micro-rotations". He went on to insist "That's why they look so good - because they are not perfectly aligned. The problem in the United States is they have very artificial vision. But what we like is a natural healthy smile, but not artificial."
Of course many view the photo as satire, the picture explanative of the wider issue within the magazine that is the current state of the UK ahead of its hosting of the Olympics - and Britain itself is no stranger to jibing its younger cousins in print - but nevertheless the outrage has come thick and fast.

Kate Pregnancy Announcement? Bookmakers Take Flurry of Bets 4290184 News

Is a Kate pregnancy announcement imminent? The Duchess of Cambridge's apparent friend Jessica Hay has allegedly told an Australian magazine that she had heard news from "several different friend of theirs" that there would be an official announcement "in weeks." Kensington Palace has already played down the Duchess's relationship with Hay, but it hasn't stopped the bookmakers taking precautions.

One firm, Coral, has stopped taking bets on Kate announcing a pregnancy by the end of July following a flurry of bets. "When bets come in at once late in the evening, it sets alarm bells off," a Coral representative told People. "It's been quiet and then all of a sudden, a week before Prince George's birthday, this happened. The bets sealed our opinion that someone knows something we don't." The odds had been 10-1, though it's been cut to even money with the bookmakers still willing to offer odds.

Elsewhere, Ladbrokes, a separate betting firm, had also put a stop to betting on any announcement. The company said it received a considerable amount of bets and was subsequently forced to drop odds from 4-1 to 8-11. Ladbrokes are also offering odds on the first name of a second child, with Victoria and James leading the field at 6-1.

In Vanity Fair's cover story, Katie Nicholl reports that "there are rumors among the couple's friends that they plan to try [for a second child] this summer."

Wimbledon 2014: Samuel L Jackson, Hugh Jackman & Keira Knightley Watch Epic Men's Final [Pictures] 4275521 News

Celebrities flocked to South London over the past fortnight to see the stars of the tennis court compete at Wimbledon. Stars from around the world attended with Chris Hemsworth and Hugh Jackman representing Australia, Samuel L Jackson and Bradley Cooper from the US and, of course, an assortment of famous British faces. Nowhere were more celebrity faces present than at the Men's final on Sunday (6th July).

The Men's final on Sunday (6th July) always draws huge crowds and celebrity doubles cropped up throughout Centre Court including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince and Kate Middleton. The couple sat in the Royal box and watched as Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic battled it out for the championship. Yet throughout the crowd other couples watched including Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky, David and Victoria Beckham and Keira Knightley and James Righton. 

Bradley CooperBradley Cooper also watched the match.

The match was an incredible one and will surely go down in history as one of the best, albeit unsuccessful comebacks, in tennis. Djokovic was merely two points away winning the championship during the third set when Federer battled his way back. Unfortunately for the much beloved Swiss player it wasn't meant to be, and Djokovic took home the trophy. 

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa PatakyChris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky looked adorable as they watched the match together.

The crowd's reaction was certainly appalling and it was as if Djokovic was playing against the crowd as much as against Federer. The crowd were overwhelmingly in support of Federer and vocally demonstrated their bias. But, the celebrities in the crowd were considerably more polite and kept their preference well hidden.

Actor Samuel L Jackson attended the match alongside his close friend and publicist, Sofia Davis. 65-year-old Jackson has been spending a great deal of time in the UK promoting awareness for Davis' charity, One For The Boys, which aims to promote awareness for men's cancers and encourage men to discuss their health issues. He recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show alongside actress Keira Knightley, who was also at the Wimbledon final alongside her husband, Klaxon's band member James Righton.

Another acting couple, and Hemsworth's fellow Australians, Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee were also present at the sporting event. Jackman looked unrecognisable with his head shaved, sporting a distinctive black moustache and goatee.

Pippa Middleton Discusses Being "Publicly Bullied", Her "Dear" Nephew Prince George, And "Unexpected" Royal Wedding Attention 4267717 News

Pippa Middleton has finally opened up on plenty of subjects that have been the subject of media speculation for some time. The 30 year-old sister of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, agreed to give an interview with USA's Today in a two-part interview that aired on Tuesday.

Ever since she wore "that dress" as a bridesmaid to Kate and Prince William in 2011 and was catapulted into the spotlight, Pippa has been the frequent subject of paparazzi mobs and speculative articles regarding her image, her personal life and her career.

Perhaps in order to silence some of the many tabloid articles she's featured in, Pippa spoke candidly about her experience of sudden fame and being an extension of the Royal family.

"It sounds funny to say, but we saw it, as just a family wedding. And actually, I didn't realize, perhaps, the scale of it until afterwards," she said of her sister's nuptials. "We all took on the roles as any family would."

She laughed off the attention that her shapely derriere attracted in her well-cut gown, saying "It was completely unexpected. You know, I think the plan was not really for it to be a significant dress. Really just to sort of blend in with the train."

Her attention then turned to the downsides of fame that she'd experienced: "I have felt publicly bullied a little bit just by, you know, when I read things that clearly aren't true or that, whichever way someone looks at it, it's a negative side," she said. "It is quite difficult. Because eventually I'm just paving my way and trying to live a life like any 30-year-old."

The family's biggest news last year was that of the birth of baby Prince George, who Pippa describes as "Amazing. He's a very dear boy," adding "And he's brought a lot of pleasure and fun for all of us, the whole family.

"I love children and babies. So I would happily have one," she said.

Looking to the future, Pippa insisted that she was trying to pave her way just like any other 30 year-old. "I want to carry on writing. I've always loved writing. So that's the plan. And a few other things in the pipeline.

"There's so much I'd love to achieve. And I still want to keep up the sport and health side of things because that's really important to me. So trying to blend that in with my love of writing and food and entertaining." She and her brother James have just finished an American cross-country bike ride, raising money for the British Heart Foundation and the Michael Matthews Foundation.

In the LEGO scenes, Her Majesty The Queen wears a characteristically classic hat - a bright yellow straw number with hand painted silk flowers. The Duchess of Cornwall wears a grey picture hat with miniature feathers while fashionista the Duchess of Cambridge wears an understated royal blue straw slice hat with quill feathers.

"What's not to love about it really?" Trevor-Morgan said at the unveiling, "I mean it's just been such fun. They are all made in exactly the same way that we might be making our hats in the work room."

"Each edge is still stitched as we would do in any of our hats so the detailing is there and they are quite intricate."

The Duchess' mother Carole Middleton and the Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice as well as Zara Tindall also get the LEGO treatment and sport headwear measuring just a few centimetres each.

Trevor-Morgan said she had been inspired by the individual fashions of all of the royal women but had tried to add her "own imprint on the different styles."

Kate Controversy: Duchess of Cambridge Forced To Hire "Female Minder" To Maintain Privacy 4227353 News

You know the paparazzi have gone overboard, when Kate Middleton has to hire a minder to make sure her privacy isn’t invaded. That happened this week. According to The Mirror the Duchess of Cambridge has hired a woman to make sure that photographers keep their distance, after a photo of her bare bottom was posted online by a German magazine.

Kate Middleton
Apparently even the most modest of clothing can't help Kate against the paps.

Even more troubling was the way the photos were taken – an opportunistic photographer snapped the pictures when Kate’s blue and white Diane Von Furstenberg dress blew up on a visit to Sydney's Blue mountains during her official tour of Australia last month.

But wait, isn’t there some kind of law against that? The pictures we mean, not the tour of Australia.

Apparently it’s not illegal, but to their credit, UK magazines all refused to publish the pictures, which is why they were sold overseas instead. The pictures were taken after the Duchess got off a helicopter, when the wind from the propellers caused her dress to fly up. To make sure that no one takes advantage of similar situations in the future, the female minder will accompany Kate on shopping trips to prevent any more embarrassing photos. It’s just another chapter in Will and Kate’s ongoing struggle to maintain some privacy by preventing the publication of photographs.

Kim Kardashian Eyes 'Royal Balcony Wedding' To Rival Will And Kate 4166256 News

Kim Kardashian has reportedly been eying up a royal wedding balcony for her impending marriage to Kanye West. The reality TV star is due to wed the rapper in a decadent ceremony at France's Chateau Louis XIV next month but the couple apparently want to rival the wedding of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge with a balcony smooch in front of the crowds.

Architects have reportedly quoted £200,000 ($391,075) to build a temporary balcony fixed to the chateau where the newlyweds can exchange kisses and romantic words as the guests cheer from below. "Kim has fallen in love with the place," says a source, via Bang Showbiz, adding "They want to give their guests a real taste of Paris. Kanye is also in talks to hold a spectacular fireworks display to rival the lightshow at the London Olympics."

In February, Us Weekly reported that the pair would further the regal theme of their union by each wearing crowns: "Kim and Kanye will be in handcrafted headpieces he commissioned for them," the source said. "He thinks he and Kim are royalty."

Their no-expense-spared nuptials will also see Kim wearing three couture dresses throughout the day, including a Givenchy wedding dress that Kanye has apparently had a hand in designing. "Kim had final fittings, including a dress Kanye has been overseeing the design of at Givenchy," Grazia magazine learned.

The 'Power' rapper is taking a hands-on approach to making sure his big day is as extravagant as possible: as well as planning the wedding rehearsal and the guests' dinner the night before, Kanye is also said to have been in talk with Paris' iconic Eiffel Tower to exclusively rent out both restaurants and the landmark's conference room.

Kim Kardashian has reportedly been eying up a royal wedding balcony for her impending marriage to Kanye West. The reality TV star is due to wed the rapper in a decadent ceremony at France's Chateau Louis XIV next month but the couple apparently want to rival the wedding of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge with a balcony smooch in front of the crowds.

Architects have reportedly quoted £200,000 ($391,075) to build a temporary balcony fixed to the chateau where the newlyweds can exchange kisses and romantic words as the guests cheer from below. "Kim has fallen in love with the place," says a source, via Bang Showbiz, adding "They want to give their guests a real taste of Paris. Kanye is also in talks to hold a spectacular fireworks display to rival the lightshow at the London Olympics."

In February, Us Weekly reported that the pair would further the regal theme of their union by each wearing crowns: "Kim and Kanye will be in handcrafted headpieces he commissioned for them," the source said. "He thinks he and Kim are royalty."

Their no-expense-spared nuptials will also see Kim wearing three couture dresses throughout the day, including a Givenchy wedding dress that Kanye has apparently had a hand in designing. "Kim had final fittings, including a dress Kanye has been overseeing the design of at Givenchy," Grazia magazine learned.

The 'Power' rapper is taking a hands-on approach to making sure his big day is as extravagant as possible: as well as planning the wedding rehearsal and the guests' dinner the night before, Kanye is also said to have been in talk with Paris' iconic Eiffel Tower to exclusively rent out both restaurants and the landmark's conference room.

What's more, West is stocking the wedding bar with the most expensive booze he can get his hands on, including bottles of bespoke vintage champagne at £18,000 ($35,196) a pop, £15,000 ($29,330) bottles of pinot noir red wine and even the world's most expensive cognac, the Hennessey Beaute du Siecle, which comes with a price tag of £120,000 ($234,645) per bottle.

Diane Von Furstenberg Dress Worn By Kate Middleton Sells Out In 8 Minutes 4160204 News

A Diane Von Furstenberg dress worn by the Duchess of Cambridge on her tour of Australia has sold out in just 8 minutes. The $325 dress is currently available “for preorder” after fans of the Duchess’ style immediately rushed to the designer’s site to order the same dress that Kate had donned in Winmalee, Australia on Thursday.

Kate Middleton Dress The Duchess of Cambridge has come to be considered as a style icon

The “Patrice Printed Cotton Wrap Dress” joins the long list of dresses made famous by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. The $645 blue Issa dress worn by the Duchess for her engagement announcement sold out within 24 hours in both the United States and in the UK.

Catherine’s style is regularly emulated by female fans; however, her husband may not be quite so keen. A few days ago the Duchess revealed to Heather Easton outside the Sydney Opera House that Prince William thought she looked “like a banana” in the yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress that she was wearing. The wool crepe dress with white panel detailing retails at $1595.

Catherine also recently explained to 68 year old Bev Hayes from Cambridge that William considered a green dress she had worn “a bit bright.”

Lily Allen And The Missing $330,000 Wedding Dress, Other Expensive Celebrity Wedding Dresses 4108137 News

We bet Karl Lagerfeld wasn’t pleased to hear that Lily Allen misplaced one of his bespoke design wedding dresses! The Hard Out Here singer married husband Sam Cooper back in 2011 and wore two dresses for the occasion. For the ceremony she wed in a Delphine Manivet design before changing in to the Chanel Couture dress for the reception.

When 4Music asked Lily Allen what the most expensive item in her wardrobe was, she told the channel, “There’s two bits to this answer. One is that it’s not in my wardrobe, it’s gone missing. And two, it’s my Chanel Couture wedding dress that’s worth about $330,000. It’s gone. I don’t know where it is.”

Lily seemed pretty blasé about misplacing such an expensive item, we’d certainly not be so cool about the whole thing! It turns out that none of her other fans would be either and after many frantic tweets, Lily replied, “OK, EVERYONE RELAX, I FOUND IT !!!!!! A couple of weeks ago now.” Phew. But where on earth did she misplace it, that’s what we want to know!

$330,000 may sound like a lot to spend on a wedding dress, which will only be worn for one day, but celebs can afford to splash out when it comes to their big days.

It may not have been her first wedding, or even her last, but for her marriage to Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian splashed out on three Vera Wang gowns, worth $25,000 each. We dread to think how many gowns and at what price she will wear to her wedding to Kanye West. Together they don’t exactly shy away from frivolity.

Next: how much did Victoria Beckham's wedding dress cost?

Victoria Beckham’s strapless wedding dress with 20 foot train cost $100,000 and, like Kim’s, was another Vera Wang creation. Vera Wang dresses certainly are a celebrity favourite.

When Madonna wed British director Guy Ritchie back in 2000, she wore a dress designed by friend Stella McCartney. The $80,000 gown was made of ivory silk and featured a full length skirt and corseted bodice. Most memorable though was her antique veil, which had attached to an Edwardian crown. Only in CelebLand...

Most expensive of expensive wedding gowns is obviously Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen creation. Kate knew that she would have the eyes of the world upon her and her dress certainly lived up to the occasion. Made with French Chantilly and English Cluny lace, the dress was decorated with hand-stitched lace sewed by blind nuns in the Spanish hills...not really, it was the Royal School of Needlework. The dress took months to make and cost an estimated $400,000. The dress was exhibited at Buckingham Palace in 2011 and helped to draw a record number of visitors to the royal palace in London.

It may not have been her first wedding, or even her last, but for her marriage to Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian splashed out on three Vera Wang gowns, worth $25,000 each. We dread to think how many gowns and at what price she will wear to her wedding to Kanye West. Together they don’t exactly shy away from frivolity.

Next: how much did Victoria Beckham's wedding dress cost?

Victoria Beckham’s strapless wedding dress with 20 foot train cost $100,000 and, like Kim’s, was another Vera Wang creation. Vera Wang dresses certainly are a celebrity favourite.

When Madonna wed British director Guy Ritchie back in 2000, she wore a dress designed by friend Stella McCartney. The $80,000 gown was made of ivory silk and featured a full length skirt and corseted bodice. Most memorable though was her antique veil, which had attached to an Edwardian crown. Only in CelebLand...

Most expensive of expensive wedding gowns is obviously Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen creation. Kate knew that she would have the eyes of the world upon her and her dress certainly lived up to the occasion. Made with French Chantilly and English Cluny lace, the dress was decorated with hand-stitched lace sewed by blind nuns in the Spanish hills...not really, it was the Royal School of Needlework. The dress took months to make and cost an estimated $400,000. The dress was exhibited at Buckingham Palace in 2011 and helped to draw a record number of visitors to the royal palace in London.
