Elizabeth Taylor's First Wedding Dress Can Be Yours!

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

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.

EXCLUSIVE! Lindsay Lohan Admits Press On Dick Drove Her Nuts! See The Vid HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsLindsay LohanExclusives!Film FlickersElizabeth Taylor

By almost any measurable metric, Lifetime's Liz & Dick was an utter disaster!

Ratings were low, critical response was unflattering, and most viewers were displeased with Lindsay Lohan's uninspired portrayal of glorious film goddess Elizabeth Taylor!

That isn't to say LiLo didn't learn a few things playing the oft-married celeb, however!!

In fact, she thinks the two of them had a ton in common, especially as far as living a life in the limelight is concerned!

Ch-ch-check out Lindz comparing herself to Liz in a DVD special feature sneak-peek, given EXCLUSIVELY to us (above)!!

In a rare moment of unscripted candor, the Mean Girls star opened up about how incessant media attention drives even the most secure of celebs a tad bit wacky!!

Hmm, maybe this mandatory stint at Betty Ford (and away from media scrutiny) really will help her refocus on what matters!

The Liz & Dick DVD hits shelves on May 14!

Lindsay Lohan Scrambles To Make Plea Deal Happen Before Court Hearing!

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal MattersElizabeth Taylor

Lindsay Lohan

Let's hope Mark Heller is really the genius Lindsay Lohan thinks he is!

In a last-ditch effort to get the best plea deal possible for lying to the cops, Linds is meeting with her lawyer before she faces the jury in less than two weeks!

Everyone from LiLo's bodyguard to ex-assistant has been subpoenaed against her, but Mark apparently still thinks they have a shot at making a deal as good as a free meal.

A source explained:

“Los Angeles City Attorney Terry White has told Lindsay’s lawyer, Mark Heller, he would be willing to meet with her before the trial is scheduled to begin on March 18. Both sides are working towards hammering out a plea deal in the case, but as of right now, the possibility still exists any deal could include her going to rehab. Lindsay strongly feels that if she is able to talk to the prosecutor he will be able to see that she doesn’t need to enter a treatment facility. However, White is a respected and smart prosecutor, and he won’t be influenced by Lindsay’s celebrity status. He is treating her as he would any other defendant.”

Hopefully she'll put on her best performance yet during that plea deal, because gurlfriend is going to need it if she hopes to stay out of jail and rehab!

We would take whatever that prosecutor hands out, even if it is a stint in rehab!

On the slight chance that Linds does win in court, she could still face up to 245 days in the slammer for violating probation in that necklace theft incident.

Hopefully she didn't piss off Elizabeth Taylor's ghost too much, because she going to need all the supernatural help she can get!

Kirsten Dunst Is Drab, Not Fab, In Beverly Hills

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???

Naomi Watts Keeps Warm For Bvlgari

Naomi Watts wears Roland Mouret to Bulgari’s Celebration of Elizabeth Taylor's Collection

Even though it was a rare, rainy El Lay night, celebs still came out in force for Bvlgari's celebration of the Elizabeth Taylor collection on Tuesday, including Naomi Watts.

With her blonde curly locks swept over her shoulder, Naomi kept warm in a Theyskens’ Theory coat worn over a black Roland Mouret dress.

Rupert Sanderson heels, a purple Reece Hudson bag and apropos Bvlgari ruby tassel necklace were her accessories of choice.

We've definitely seen better from Naomi, but we're guessing she's saving all her fashionable energy for Sunday night!
