It's an ambient French-language number with a retro edge; a seductive composition that feels very Dita Von Teese. She's been a burlesque dancer since the nineties, and has since branched out into lingerie design, releasing her own make-up range, and even acting - so it was only a matter of time before the music industry called.

People across the world got together with friends on 22nd February to watch the Academy Awards - and for Sir Elton John, those friends happened to be some of the biggest names in entertainment!
Since 1992, EJAF (Elton John AIDS Foundation) has raised over 321 million USD to help combat AIDS/HIV. One of the biggest events on EJAF's calendar is that of the Academy Awards Ceremony - for the last 23 years, Sir Elton John has hosted a special Academy Awards viewing party, in which celebrities from all areas of the entertainment industry come together to watch the Oscars, whilst raising money for the foundation. This year was no exception.

Of course, as with any Oscar party, members of the Hollywood elite were in attendance, like Alec and Hilaria Baldwin. But also, tremendous musical talent flocked to West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. In addition to Sir Elton John, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were there to pose for pictures, as were Miley Cyrus, LIL' KIM and Kylie Minogue. Moby and Beck also stopped by to help raise awareness for the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Who's making the rounds at this year's NY Fashion Week.
Fashion Week is in full swing, so as per tradition, everyone is looking to the front row at fashion shows as much as the runway. For a while now, the front row has been the place to be seen, not just to see next season’s looks. So it’s about time for a round-up of this year’s most fashion-conscious celebrities.
Robb might play an 80s suburban teen on television, but her style definitely wasn't left behind.
The Rebecca Minkoff show on Friday attracted a whole host of Millenial Hollywood starlets. Anna Kendrick sat next to Carrie Underwood, who sat next to The Carrie Diaries star AnaSophia Robb, who sat next to Girls star Zosia Mamet. In short, it was like a nominees list for a Teen Choice award. Apparently, after taking fashion blogs by storm, Rebecca Minkoff is now steadily conquering young Hollywood as well. And with a collection dominated by short skirts, school girl inspired uniform dresses and uber-trendy dark makeup looks, it’s no surprise that the show appears to the younger crowd.

Singer Miley Cyrus appears to have misplaced her clothes on the front of Marc Jacobs' latest charity T -shirt.
"Hi, yeah it's Miley...Look could you bring me some clothes - I seem to have accidentally inhaled mine and there's this creepy dude standing around with a camera." Well maybe Miley Cyrus didn't actually say this but it's pretty much what the 20 year-old former Hannah Montana's facial expression is implying on the front of designer Marc Jacobs T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan "Protect The Skin You're In" which is positioned strategically over a starkers Cyrus.

It's not a massive cloth-shed for the usually scantily clad performer but there's a special cause at the heart of the shirt campaign. One of the striking black and white T-shirts will cost you $35 but proceeds will go to support the NYU Cancer Institute and NYU Langone Medical Center: centres for medical education in New York, as reported by The Daily Mail. The shirts were launched across nine Marc Jacobs boutiques in America on Friday (26th July) morning, with a planned expansion to Europe next month.

Kelly Brook has had a bizarre career. Nobody really knows whether she belongs on the pages of Nuts magazine, the stages of the West End or the silver screen. We suspect she doesn't really know either, considering her latest project.
The model will perform in Crazy Horse's 'Forever Crazy' cabaret show in London, from November 1-8, 2012. Unsurprisingly, the performance is generating media buzz as Brook will appear naked. Totally naked. "Some people dream of winning an Oscar or a gold medal, I have dreamed for as long as I remember of becoming a Crazy Horse dancer." Hmm, we're not sure whether Brook is being entirely truthful, though she didn't give herself much of a chance to win an Oscar with 'School for Seduction' or 'Piranha' did she? She added, "When I heard the show was coming to London I just knew I had to be a part of it and I am ecstatic to be making a small part alongside the truly amazing Crazy Girls in London!" Dita Von Teese, Carmen Electra and Pamela Anderson are previous stars to have joined the Crazy Horse girls on-stage.
The cabaret performers are famous for wearing very little, though intricate lights and projections are cleverly used to spare their blushes.
Over recent years, two things have captured our heart and soul. Firstly, cabaret; making its way into the main stream, most notably in the 2001 film 'Moulin Rouge' as its strident vehicle, cabaret has become a shining light of femininity, allowing women to feel good about being dead sexy, without being tarnished with the 'slut' brush. The other of our two loves is Kelly Brook. She's forever endearing and even though she makes some bad choices (we're thinking of Piranha 3D here), choosing to join the cast of the iconic Crazy Horse Cabaret in Paris is certainly one of her better decisions.
Crazy Horse Cabaret has been in business for over 60 years and it's had an exclusive list of guest performers, including lady-cabaret, Dita Von Teese, and Pamela Anderson. Now, Kelly Brook is set to add to that list of sex-icons of the 21st century.
Brook has been a Crazy Horse fan for years, as she told the Independent: "After seeing the show in Paris a few years ago, I have dreamed of becoming a Crazy Horse dancer. The costumes, lighting and choreography make it the best cabaret in the world.” Now, it seems her dream is set to come true. She'll be playing Miss Bissou throughout the show as well as performing her own segment, called "Lecon d'Erotisme" (which translates into English as the Lesson of Eroticism).
