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.)

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…

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.

Simon Helberg and his wife Jocelyn Towne welcomed daughter Adeline on May 8, Helberg’s rep confirms to Us Weekly exclusively.

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.”

When Charlize Theron adopted a baby boy named Jackson in March, her entire world changed.

“It’s strangely everything that you’ve hoped for and it feels so right. I don’t know how else to say it,” Theron told E! News over the weekend while promoting her new film, Snow White and the Huntsman, in London. “I feel like I can’t remember anything prior to him. I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is.”

PHOTOS: Charlize Theron’s hottest looks ever

The single star celebrated her first Mother’s Day overseas. “My mom and Jacks are here with me. We had a nice morning. He got to spend a little time with me and he got to have a little snuggle,” Theron, 36, revealed. “I’m going to see them later tonight. It’s really nice to have him here.”

Theron — who hasn’t been in a serious relationship since ending her nine-year partnership with Stuart Townsend in 2010 — is amazed by how quickly her bond with Jackson began.

PHOTOS: More stars who have adopted

“It’s an overwhelming sensation of love,” Theron gushed. “There’s almost a moment where I feel like I can’t remember anything prior to him. I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is. Everyday I’m just like, ‘It’s not possible to love you more,’ and then 20 minutes later you’re like, ‘Oh my god! How is this possible?'”

The Prometheus actress “has always wanted to be a mom,” a Theron source recently told Us Weekly. “She is glad to be able to do it on her own now and is so happy to be a mom.”

Exclusive, The EastEnders star has emerged from the gloom with a smile on her face after finding romance with Tim Arnold

there were those who thought she’d never recover from the humiliation of her wedding day split from Vince Morse.

But Jessie Wallace has emerged from the gloom with a smile on her face after finding romance with former crack addict Tim Arnold.

And friends say she is head over heels in love with the musician, who nearly died while blowing £500 a week on drug binges.

A pal of the EastEnders star, who dumped Vince, 50, after he sent steamy pictures of her to an ex-girlfriend, said: “It’s early days but you can see how much she’s into him.

“He is a thoroughly decent bloke, too, so it’s a great match.”

The 40-year-old actress has become inseparable from Tim, 36, since they met at the Soap Awards last month.

Romance: Out and about in London

He is the godson of Walford veteran June Brown (Dot Cotton) and son of co-star Polly Perkins who plays Dot’s sister Rose in the BBC show.

Jessie was spotted at his flat in Central London on Sunday where she dropped off a bag before they headed to a restaurant.

Onlookers said they held hands and kissed. A day earlier they were seen kissing in her car.

June is a long-time friend of Tim’s mum and she even funded a three-week trip to ­Thailand’s ­Thamkrabok monastery for ­treatment by monks to help beat his addiction.

The 85-year-old soap legend once said: “Tim had got to the point where all of us feared he might die.

“His skin wasn’t very good, his teeth were discoloured and his nature changed. He became deceitful, because he was always lying, trying to get money to feed his habit.”

June told how Tim’s life started to crumble as his addiction took its grip.

She added: “It’s awful to be a mother watching your child fall apart, and being powerless to stop it. Simple as that.

“He’d go to the studios during the day, pretending he was holding himself together, then at night he roamed the streets begging.”

Tim who was once in 90s Britpop band Jocasta, told how he got hooked on the killer drug when he lost his record deal.

He said: “I had become a crack addict at the age of 19 but after several years, I knew I needed help to quit.

“I realised I was killing myself, or rather my soul. But I didn’t care. I felt I wasn’t worth anything.

“I remember smoking crack in front of my mother. I thought: ‘Why shouldn’t I? This is what I do with my life’.”

The Witherspoon family drama continues.

According to The TennesseanReese Witherspoon, 36, accompanied her parents to a Davidson County courtroom Friday to attend “an emergency hearing on whether her father should be placed in a conservatorship.”

Earlier this week, the actress’ mother, Mary Elizabeth “Betty” Witherspoon filed court documents accusing her husband, Dr. John Witherspoon, of bigamy.

Though the couple separated in 1996, according to the affidavit, Betty and John “are in regular contact and speak together many times per week. They attend family functions together, including their daughter’s wedding in California.”

Explaining she’s still in love with her husband, Betty also asserts she believes John is struggling with early onset dementia. Because of his poor mental health, she believes his January 14 marriage to Tricianne Taylorshould be annulled. “When I confronted my husband, he said he didn’t know who Tricianne Taylor was and that he did not remember getting married,” Betty stated in the affidavit.

At this time, Davidson County Seventh Circuit Court Judge Randy Kennedy’s decision regarding John’s capacity to care for himself remains unknown; the judge closed Friday’s proceedings to the public and has sealed the court record.

Speaking to the judge, Andra Hendrick, an attorney for the Witherspoon family, asserted that the conservatorship case “has zero to do with Reese Witherspoon’s career,” and instead is about helping her mother look after her marriage and the family’s finances.

“This is a daughter who wants to help her parents, particularly her father,” Hendrick explained.

Reese is currently expecting her first child with husband of one year, Jim Toth; she and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe share custody of Ava, 12, andDeacon, 8.
