Chrissy Teigen and John Legend brought their good looks to City Harvest's annual Practical Magic fundraising event in NYC last night. The bash drew stars from both film and the world of food, including Richard Gere and a Chloe-clad Elizabeth Olsen — whom Chrissy and John mingled with inside the event — and Top Chef star Tom Colicchio and Eric Ripert, who is the chair of City Harvest's Food Council. It isn't clear if Chrissy partook in any libations during the fete, but she did reveal after the charity shindig that she is swearing off alcohol for the time being. She tweeted today, "I feel like if I say this publicly, the chances of succeeding will rise. I am going sober. First for a month, then taking it from there. Alcohol is just not as fun and relaxing as it used to be. Want to feel truly good again!"
Robert Pattinson stepped out to celebrate Richard Gere's Arbitrage at a luncheon held at LA's Osteria Mozza yesterday. The duo posed for photos together as Richard mingled with guests, including director Nicholas Jarecki, at the restaurant. He didn't have co-star Susan Sarandon on hand, but Homeland's Morena Baccarin made an appearance. It was Rob's latest outing following a stop at Chateau Marmont for drinks with a friend on Tuesday. Rob is back on the West Coast after travelling home with girlfriend Kristen Stewart on Monday. The couple visited London and NYC following overseas promotions for Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Rose Byrne dressed up in a pretty pink gown and showed off a dramatic new haircut at the amfAR New York Gala. The event kicks off New York Fashion Week and Rose was in the company of actors — including The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies and Alan Cumming, Richard Gere and Liev Schreiber — as well as fashion folk like Iman, Karen Elson and Helena Christensen. On the red carpet Rose posed solo and with David Lauren, son of designer Ralph. The event’s performance lineup also included music legends Stevie Wonder, Dionne Warwick and Gladys Knight. Fashion Week is just about to start so be sure to check Fab and Bella for all the fashion and beauty, and we’ll bring you the star-studded front row snaps!
Count me in for this one: Keira Knightley, Eric Bana and Richard Gere have all signed on to star in The Emperor's Children, based on Claire Messud's novel. Taking place before and after 9/11, the dramedy centers on three Brown University grads as they approach their 30s and deal with the pressures of responsibility and expectations. Relatable, yes, but I often worry when films try to use 9/11 as a reference point, because sometimes it can feel like a manipulative way to conjure up tears. However, the good news here is that Noah Baumbach (most recently of Greenberg) is taking on the directing duties, which could make it a really poignant, introspective movie. He is also adapting the screenplay. Gere is reportedly playing a more supporting character role, and since Bana is 41, I'm guessing Knightley is the only one of the three portraying one of the Brown alumni. Hey, at least she'll get a break from those laced-up corsets she usually wears.
Australian singer Peter Andre is in talks to play Danny Zuko in London’s West End. The producers of Grease want him to join the show next year. Richard Gere also played the part in the 1970s in the West End and John Travolta starred opposite Olivia Newton-John in the 1978 movie version. According to a source, “Pete has had lots of offers from musicals but Grease is one of his favourites. He loves the character of Danny and he's confident that he will be able to play him—even if only for a short stint.” Peter’s former wife, Katie Price, was once rumoured to play the part of Sandy, but since they split, he’ll be searching for a new co-star.
Diane Kruger was back in Berlin over the weekend to attend Saturday's Goldene Kamera Awards. The red carpet style star didn't disappoint in her latest gorgeous gown, this time opting to wear a Valentino number that another attendee, model Barbara Meier, also wore. Kruger kept warm with a faux fur coat. Karl Lagerfeld didn't seem to mind that Diane wasn't in Chanel, as he took the stage to present her with the Best International Actress statue for her work in Inglourious Basterds. Joining Diane for the show were Danny DeVito and Richard Gere, who added a little more Hollywood sparkle to the German event.
