Elizabeth Hurley Fluffs Up Her Look For The Portrait Gala Fundraiser! Bill Clinton Rumors Be Darned!

Elizabeth Hurley attends an art fundraiser in London!

Elizabeth Hurley may have been involved in some SRSLY scandalous rumors of late, but that hasn’t stopped her from living her life!

The falsely accused Bill Clinton sex partner attended the Portrait Gala 2014: Collecting to Inspire fundraiser at the National Portrait Gallery in London on Tuesday, and was sure to dress for the occasion!

Miz Hurley wore a floor-length gown featuring ring details at the neckline, which she fluffed up with a fuzzy white shawl.

While we get the glamorous appeal she was going for, we’re not really loving the dress on her. Especially when it was wrinkled and styled with a metallic gold clutch!

She still looked beautiful, though!

Kate Middleton Debuts Fancier & Sparklier New Look At The National Portrait Gallery

kate middleton diamonds

Longer hemline? Check. Sparklier jewels? CHECK.

This must be the new Kate Middleton look as decreed by the Queen herself!

Which is almost exactly like the old Kate Middleton look except for that GIANT Nizam of Hyderabad diamond necklace on loan from Queen Elizabeth II!

Those diamonds are not messing around!!!

The Duchess wore the impressive piece to the National Portrait Gallery today for her first official outing of 2014, but slightly tempered the ostentatiousness of the jewels by repeating a dark blue Jenny Packham off-the-shoulder gown that she wore back in October.

Borrowed jewels, recycled gown…it's like she's not even royalty! LOLz!

What do U make of Kate's fancy makeover???

Kate Middleton Is A Work Of Art At The National Portrait Gallery In London

Kate Middleton morphs into a Disney princess at the National Portrait Gallery

Observe that preternatural grace, that poise!

There's just no denying at this point that Kate Middleton is a real life Disney princess!

She even rocked that half-up/half-down hairdo Belle was so fond of during a visit to The National Portrait Gallery in London on Wednesday.

The Duchess attended a reception for The Art Room charity looking like a work of art herself in a powder blue, empire-waisted Emilia Wickstead dress and gray suede Rupert Sanderson heels.

How can one person always look so naturally elegant and perfect?

What kind of voodoo is this?!

We just can't wait until July when the baby is born and Prince William presents him or her to the world on the Buckingham Palace balcony, like Rafiki did with Simba on that cliff in The Lion King.

That would be BOSS.

The Winner Of Britain's National Portrait Contest

Filed under: AwardzGuinea Pig

girl-and-her-guinea-pig.jpg

And the winner is… a guinea pig! And its owner.

Jooney Woodward, a photographer, took the picture of the girl and her pet and said about it:

"I found her image immediately striking with her long, red hair and white stewarding coat.

She is holding her own guinea pig called Gentleman Jack, named after the Jack Daniel's whisky box in which he was given to her. Using natural light from a skylight above, I took just three frames and this image was the first.

I don't mess around with Photoshop so what you see is what you get. Enhanced images can portray a false sense of reality, whereas my work celebrates the people and places as they appear every day."

The director of the National Portrait Gallery said the portrait was a:

"[…] brilliant, empathetic study of young woman."

The photo beat out over 6,000 other photos to claim the $19,000 first place prize.

It's a good photo but we just mainly like it for the giant guinea pig. LOLz!

Daphne Guiness came out to support photographer David LaChapelle on Friday night to celebrate his portrait of Alexander McQueen and Isabella Blow being inducted into the National Portrait Gallery.

The photo was snapped back in 1996 when a 27 year old Lee McQueen was working at Givenchy.

The portrait dubbed "Burning Down The House" went on to appear in the March 1997 issue of Vanity Fair.

Congrats on the honor, David!
