Ms. Xquisite

 READ  A Compendium of Channing Tatum’s Shirtless Roles.

The genre of a Channing Tatum on-screen love interest can be subdivided into three categories. One: wounded, doe-eyed woman based on a Nicholas Sparks character (see: Seyfried, Amanda, in Dear John). Two: wounded, doe-eyed woman whose magnetic delicacy and plot-advancing toughness will inspire a future Nicholas Sparks character (see: McAdams, Rachel, in The Vow). And three: a heretofore unseen species, the drop-dead—though not particularly doe-eyed—girl who is breezy, even-tempered, and in a relationship with a stripper who dances at a club called Xquisite. Tatum, whose abdominal muscles ripple and curve like graphs of calculus functions, plays the titular entertainer in Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike. Cody Horn co-stars as Paige, the sister of one of Tatum’s …peers. The daughter of Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan F. Horn, she previously played underqualified new hire Jordan on the 2010–11 season of The Office. Jordan’s office-mates unhappily suspected she was hired for her femininity. Predictably, such H.R. concerns do not trouble anyone at Xquisite.

Cruel Summer, cute couple!

Kim Kardashian was the best plus-one ever for beau Kanye West at Wednesday’s Cannes Film Festival premiere of Cruel Summer, the rapper’s new art film/art installation.

The reality star, 31, wore a jaw-dropping gold-and-cream Balmain dress with a plunging neckline and super-short hem, paired with sexy ankle boots. (The frock has already been worn by Katy Perry, Zoe Saldanaand other stars.) West, 34, complemented his love of nearly three months in a white shirt, cream jacket, denim and black loafers.

According to a source, the couple “were inseparable” at the afterparty forCruel Summer, one of the first projects of West’s Donda creative firm. The twosome were “kissing in the back the whole time.” (West’s buddy Jay Z, sans wife Beyonce, showed up to support his frequent collaborator.)

On Tuesday, Kardashian told Us Weekly that she’s having a blast at this year’s star-studded film fest. “It’s my first time to cannes and it’s amazing! I love it here!”

Brangelina wedding photos? Hollywood’s golden couple tie the knot in pictures the paparazzi can only dream of (courtesy of Alison Jackson)

Those pesky paparazzi get everywhere! And as these aerial pictures prove, no celebrity is safe from press intrusion.

Even if you happen to be one of the hottest power couples in the world. 

But wait, surely there’s something awry – not least because the wedding in question hasn’t actually happened yet.

Artist Alison Jackson has reimagined the impending nuptials of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie where the roles of the couple are played by actors

No, things are not quite as they appear.

What seems, at first glace, to be the ultimate paparazzi scoop, is actually an elaborate set-up by maverick artist Alison Jackson.

Jackson is known  for her reimaginings of iconic events in which actors play the leading roles.

Last minute preening and preparations away from prying eyes. Or so they think…

Her most notable coup to date was perhaps a 300-image spoof take on the wedding of Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge.

And now the artist has turned her camera on the impending marriage of Hollywood couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  

The bride looks ravishing in ivory – ‘is it Armani Prive or is it vintage’ – we find ourselves wondering as Jackson’s lens follows her lookalikes from their hotel suite to the car to the outdoor ceremony itself. 

One thing is for sure though. As any magazine deal surrounding the real photographs is likely to be worth about $10 million, security to protect the actual proceedings will be rather tighter than it is in Jackson’s world…

There’s certainly nothing evil about Charlize Theron’s sheer dress. Kristen’s, not so sure

Charlize Theron turns up to the London premiere of Snow White wearing a sexy see through dress

She plays the evil queen in Snow White and the Huntsman and although she had a black dress on, like what we’d imagine evil queens wear, there was nothing nasty about Charlize tonight as she arrived at the premiere of her latest film.

Wearing a floor length number, Charlize swanned into London’s Leicester Square with her lovely long legs on display through the sheer material and almost showing a bit of boob too.

Sexy and evil - Charlize ticks all boxes

We’ve studied these pictures quite hard and are pretty sure her modesty is being protected by some flesh coloured material under there – unfortunately.

Kristen Stewart also stars in the movie as Snow White and Charlize told Celebuzz she thinks she’s got a great future ahead of her: “I think that she is going to have an amazing career,” she said.

“I think, as an actor, she’s doing it, because she really loves her job and she is really good at it. My experience has been, if your reasons for doing this is authentic as that and you have the tenacity and guts that she has, then I think you have the right personality for this job. I think she has that.”

Nothing evil about her at all.

He wore pyjamas to meeting, only eats animals he’s killed himself … Inside the fascinating world of Facebook’s founder

Usual rules do not apply when your company will float on the stock exchange for the first time this Friday with a valuation of £62billion    

Got the t-shirt: He addresses businessmen in Cannes

Got the t-shirt: He addresses businessmen in Cannes

Wandering into the great financial houses of Wall Street in a hoodie this week, it’s a wonder Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t thrown out by security.

Pin-striped suits and expensive tailored shirts are the usual uniform here.

And when curly-haired Facebook founder Zuckerberg turned up to promote the social network site’s shares flotation in a black-hooded top, jeans and trainers, billionaire investors looked on in astonishment.

Wall Street just about got used to the finance whizzkids of the 1980s wearing red braces yet nothing could have prepared them for this.

But usual rules do not apply when you’re one of the world’s youngest chief executives, whose company will float on the stock exchange for the first time this Friday with a valuation of £62billion.

That makes it worth more than McDonald’s or Goldman Sachs, although investors still weren’t impressed with how he dressed.

One top stockmarket analyst said: “I think that’s a mark of immaturity.”

Zuckerberg, who turned 28 on Monday, was also voted one of the world’s worst-dressed men by magazine GQ.

But there is method in his fashion madness – his trademark hoodie is in fact a piece of Facebook merchandise and displays in grey the three logos for “friend requests”, “messages” and “notifications”.

It’s not just his dress sense which is seen as slightly out of the ordinary, though.

He carries two business cards, one simply stating his lofty position as company “CEO” but another, for less formal occasions, which reads “I’m CEO…b*tch!”

At work at Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, California, Zuckerberg has no office and instead holds court among accountants, engineers and internet gurus at a messy desk in the middle of the huge room.

But he also rubs shoulders with America’s rich and famous, including President Obama, pop star Katy Perry and rapper Snoop Dogg.

And on one wacky day, a grey-haired man burst into the HQ surrounded by an entourage.

He was the oldest in the room by 20 years and the only one wearing a suit.

Marching up to Zuckerberg he introduced himself as Robert Mueller, director of the FBI.

They shook hands and chatted about nothing for a couple of minutes and then Mueller promptly left.

One worker said: “There was a giddy silence while everybody just looked at one another as if to say, ‘What the hell just happened?’”

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of internet entrepreneur Zuckerberg, who has almost single-handedly destroyed the productivity of workplaces around the world.

Yet he has a powerful work ethic.

When Facebook was in its early days, he and his co-founders and their small team worked relentlessly on the new project.

One employee remembers him refusing to let others out for a bite to eat, crying: “‘No! We’re in lockdown! No one leaves until we’re done with this thing.”

But when the tight group partied, they did it hard.

A zip wire was even fixed from a chimney to the ground so partygoers could drop into the pool from above.

And the landlord had to send a letter of complaint asking him not to throw furniture into the pool or walk on the roof.

Annoyed at the treatment of a pal by a venture capital firm looking to invest in Facebook, Zuckerberg turned up at a meeting in his pyjamas, with a PowerPoint computer presentation listing the top 10 reasons they shouldn’t invest.

He is devoted to his Chinese-American girlfriend Priscilla Chan and in 2011 spent Christmas with her riding a buffalo in Vietnam.

It is one of the few country’s in the world to block his social network site – and he then posted pictures of it on his own Facebook page.

The couple have been dating since their college days at Harvard, after meeting at a party while waiting in a toilet queue. Priscilla later said she thought

Zuckerberg was “this nerdy guy who was just a little bit out there”.

But despite all his bizarre quirks and oddities, he is already worth a staggering £10billion.

And he is in charge of a company which has connected 900 million people – almost one seventh of the Earth’s population – through a simple idea conceived in a dormitory of Harvard University.

But it was only last May he treated himself to a £7million five-bedroom house in Palo Alto, California, a handy 10- minute commute to the office.

Until then, despite his enormous wealth, the computer genius had been living in a relatively modest two-storey house on a street neighbours described as “absolutely average”.

No Ferrari, Porsche or Bugatti Veyron for him. Instead he went for a basic Nissan Infiniti, and nicknamed it The Warthog.

Tyler Winklevoss, one half of the Harvard and Oxford rowing twins who successfully sued Zuckerberg for millions claiming he stole the idea for Facebook from them, once said: “He’s the poorest rich person I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Each year, though, he sets himself a new challenge.

Bizarre as it may seem, given the way he turned up on Wall Street this week, in 2009 he decided to wear a tie for a year.

For 2010, he announced he’d be learning Chinese. “Some members of my girlfriend’s family only speak Chinese and I wanted to be able to talk to them,” he said.

“I blocked out an hour every day to study and it has been an amazing experience so far.”

In January, 2011, he wrote on his own Facebook page “Became a vegetarian”, writing that he only want to, “eat meat if I kill the animal myself.

“The reason for this is that I feel lucky for having such a great life”.

Zuckerberg, who owns a dog called Beast, wanted to feel more “connected” to the food he eats and the “animals that give their lives so I can eat them”.

The statement was “liked” by 25,168 of his 13 million Facebook page followers, and every wall post he writes gets around 300 comments.

The famously frugal tycoon has since killed chickens, a pig and a goat as part of his personal crusade for more responsible eating.

He said his first kill was a lobster, which he had to throw into a pot of boiling water.

Now he is telling friends he is interested in trying hunting.

A chef who showed Zuckerberg how to kill animals in the most humane way said: “He cut the throat of the goat with a knife, which is the most kind way to do it.”

Having slaughtered the animals, they are sent to a butcher, who then cuts them into parts and returns them to Zuckerberg and Priscilla to cook and eat.

For one recent meal, he reportedly ate a chicken, including the heart and liver, and used the feet to make a stock.

A photo of the chicken and the dishes he made from it were put on Facebook.

But for all his eccentricity, he’s definitely a trend setter.

In his honour, Australian fashion firm Betabrand has just released an “executive pinstripe hoodie” nicknamed The Zuck.

This is the first child for The Big Bang Theory star and his actress/writer/director wife. “The family is thrilled,” a source says. “Simon is excited to be a father — he’s been doing his reading.”

Helberg, 31, met Towne in Los Angeles, Calif. and they married in 2007.

The season finale of The Big Bang Theory aired Thursday and Helberg’s character (Howard Wolowitz) married Bernadette Rostenkowski (played byMelissa Rauch) and he was launched into outer space!

“It seems like it built up pretty evenly and naturally,” Helberg toldEntertainment Weekly of the big finale episode. “You start to see, wait a second, even though he’s married, the dynamic has not completely shifted yet. He’s not grown up. He’s still with his mother. He still needs these guys to hang out with. And now you’re going to get this whole view of what married life is like, which I think is a kind of fascinating thing to put into this show about young nerds.”
