Naomi Watts Kills It In Beckham

Naomi Watts was a shining red carpet stunner on Thursday night!

The Impossible actress attended the Take Home a Nude Benefit Art Auction in NYC, and her slim bod was a perfect spectacle!

Miz Watts wore a tight Victoria Beckham Collection dress, paired with Christian Louboutin booties and a Valentino purse.

Even though we're feeling Naomi's dress, she should have taken a shoe cue from Victoria and went with something more military-esque.

What do U think?!?

Kelly Clarkson's $236,000 Ring Barred From Leaving The UK!

Remember that Jane Austen ring that sold for $236,000 earlier this year to an anonymous buyer?

Turns out it was Kelly Clarkson who had the winning bid!

Unfortunately, after spending all that money, she can't take it back to the US because the ring's been declared a "national treasure".

WTF!? Shouldn't Sotheby's have mentioned that before!?

Kelly hasn't said what she's going to do with the ring, you know, besides leaving it in the UK.

Aahhh! Scream Painting Expected To Fetch $200 Mil

Edvard Munch The Scream Auction 200 Million Dollars

Two hundred MILLION? For one painting??

We can’t believe it!

The Scream is being auctioned today by a Norwegian businessman and Sotheby’s expects the winning bid to exceed nine figures.

Thor have mercy!

The pastel version of Edvard Munch’s expressionist masterpiece could very well wind up breaking all sales records for individual pieces of art.

It’s crazy to think an

Mary-Kate Olsen was flying solo at the 20th Annual Take Home a Nude Benefit on Monday night.

The lone Olsen Twin showed up to Sotheby's in New York City wearing a embroidered velvet nightie with sheer sleeves that could have easily been stolen from her granny's closet.

At least her shoes are cute.

Bob Dylan Lyrics Sell For Over $400,000!

Filed under: Music Minute

Wow!!

Bob Dylan's handwritten lyrics for The Times They Are A-Changin' sold for $429,000 at Sotheby's in New York!!

Hedge-fund manager Adam Sender, an avid art collector, beat out five other bidders and bought the lyrics for almost double their original estimate price of $200,000.

The piece of paper shows crossed-out and added words written on an old beaten-up piece of paper.

"Bob Dylan's lyrics are not terribly rare," said Selby Kiffer, senior vice-president and head of books and manuscripts at Sotheby's. "He has a tremendous output. However, to have lyrics of such a seminal song is unusual."

Whoa! That's crazy to spend so much on a piece of paper!

If U had the money, would U pay almost half a million dollars for hand-written lyrics??
