Kim Kardashian Emulates Elizabeth Taylor With That Massive Engagement Diamond!

Kim Kardashian is now being compared to Marilyn Monroe AND Elizabeth Taylor!!

While Kanye West is busy trying to convince everyone that Kim Kardashian is the next Marilyn Monroe, Kimmy apparently has ambitions elsewhere!!

So who would the reality star rather be compared to?

Elizabeth Taylor, no less!!

She’s already been shot in multiple spreads posing as Liz, she bought a jade and diamond bracelet that used to belong to the actress, and she’s often cited Miz Taylor as her most revered idol. So it comes as no surprise that yesterday, she took her imitations of the star to Instagram!

Last night, Kimmy shared a photo of herself wearing a towel on her head and flaunting her massive engagement rock, just as Elizabeth was doing in a pic on the wall behind her.

Many people took it to be a pretentious move, but Kim K’s allowed to have idols too!

And she actually mirrors the pose almost flawlessly, don't U think???

Helena Bonham Carter Sports A Dread-ful New Look To The Hamptons International Film Festival

Helena Bonham Carter rocks dreadlocks and floral print to the Hamptons International Film Festival!

While promoting Burton and Taylor at the Hamptons International Film Festival over the weekend, Helena Bonham Carter attempted to pull off some lengthy Bob Marley-esque tresses.

Because nothing goes with a cherry blossom print dress like dreads, right?

If she wanted to keep Tim Burton from smooching random chicks, this probably wasn't the way to go!

But since there’s supposedly no trouble with their relationship, we guess it doesn’t really matter. LOLz!

Maybe she was just trying to look as little like her character, Elizabeth Taylor, as possible.

Thoughts???

Elizabeth Taylor's First Wedding Dress Can Be Yours!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFashion SmashionElizabeth TaylorWedding WaltzAuction Block

eilzabeth taylor first wedding dress conrad hilton auction

If you’ve always wanted to walk down the aisle in Elizabeth Taylor's wedding dress, then you’re in luck!

Next month, Christie’s is auctioning off the very first wedding gown Liz ever wore when she tied the knot with Conrad Hilton Jr. on May 6, 1950 at the tender age of 18.

Created by costume designer Helen Rose and gifted to the legendary actress from MGM, the shell-white satin gown is embellished with seed pearls and bugle beads, boasts a 15-yard train and features a built-in corset to give Taylor a 20 inch waist.

Wowsers!!!

The wedding gown is expected to fetch at least $75,175 when it hits the auction block on June 26th in London, but based on previous Elizabeth Taylor auctions, we wouldn't be surprised if it sold for MUCH more than that.

And if you can't get your hands on Elizabeth's first gown, don't worry! She walked down the aisle 7 other times, so it's only a matter of time before they hit the auction block too.

Jessica Chastain Ascends The Cleopatra Throne At Cannes

| Filed under: Film FlickersFashion SmashionFrancophiliaElizabeth TaylorJessica ChastainCannesRed CarpetVersaceBulgari

Jessica Chastain is a bonafide QUEEN at the Cleopatra premiere at Cannes!

That's it, we give up. Jessica Chastain wins everything!

The actress rarely disappoints with her fashion choices, and when she really turns it out, she knocks the wind out of us!

You'd think it'd be illegal to be this FAB!!!

Ariel's doppelgänger was the empress of the Cleopatra premiere at Cannes on Tuesday, looking STELLAR in a creamy and luscious white Versace Collection gown with sweeping cape-train, AKA, a cape that turns into a train.

FIERCE!!!

A large sapphire and diamond Bvlgari necklace worthy of Elizabeth Taylor (and previously owned by her!) was just what the doctor ordered.

Priceless, just like those jewels.

Who let the dogs, err, dog out?

Drew Barrymore!

The new mom was totally bitchin' in Beverly Hills last night at Bvlgari celebration of Elizabeth Taylor's collection.

Drew sicked the purple carpet in a black and white MaxMara Resort jumpsuit the provided the perfect backdrop for her multi-colored Bvlgari necklace.

As blinding as Miz Barrymore's bling may be, we're all about her Givenchy Rottweiler clutch.

Very grr, baby!

Kirsten Dunst Is Drab, Not Fab, In Beverly Hills

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionKirsten DunstElizabeth TaylorRed CarpetBulgariChloe

Kirsten Dunst attends the Elizabeth Taylor Bvlgari exhibit in Beverly Hills

Hmmm.

Kirsten Dunst looked noticeably lackluster at the exhibit for Elizabeth Taylor's Bvlgari collection in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

Though she wore a sophisticated black one-shoulder Chloe dress and carried a beautiful jeweled clutch, the actress's hair and makeup were totally ho-hum.

Her up 'do looked like a last-minute decision and though we appreciate the natural look, Kirsten's makeup did not accentuate her gorgeous features at all.

She needs some color on those cheeks STAT!

Do U like Kirsten's look???
