Donatella Versace
Versace has branded a new biopic about Donatella Versace "a work of fiction."

The film is an adaptation of Deborah Ball's 2010 novel 'House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder and Survival', with actress Gina Gershon cast as the leading lady.
A spokesperson told WWD: "Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is based, the movie should only b...

The tune opens with the words, "I'm so fab/Check it out", and goes on to include lines such as, "I'm blonde/ I'm skinny/ I'm rich/ And I'm a little bit of a b**ch" - and Versace can't get enough of it.

She tells Elle magazine, "The best present she could give me. I loved it and couldn't stop dancing. I made her play it again and agai...

Donatella Versace

The Bound star admits she didn't like the sound of the project when her agents first raised the topic with her, but she was quickly won over after becoming hooked on the script, which chronicles Donatella's efforts to keep the family's fashion empire alive following the death of her brother Gianni in 1997.

She tells U.S. talk show host Katie Couric, "I think because I hadn't read it (the script) ye...

Celebrity Plastic Surgery Gone Bad

Kim Novak
Most celebrities have had "a little work done" over the course of their careers, going for the usual nip here or tuck there to improve their appearance and keep themselves looking youthful enough to keep landing the big roles; and then there are the few dozen who have taken cosmetic surgery procedures to their most extreme.

Take former Dead or Alive singer Pete Burns, for instance. Known in the early 80s for his flamboyant, androgynous appearance, Burns has undergone several cosmetic surgeries -- likening them to simply "buying a new sofa" and saying it's something he'll always keep doing ...

The singer, who is in town for her "Born This Way" tour, also appeared in a tight fitting red dress with bondage-like straps on the bodice.

Lady Gaga was recently criticized for gaining a little weight. She recently...

Skin care is extremely important to any movie star, television personality or famous musician - or anyone in the public eye. Some stars can live to 90 years old and still look like a teenager; however, some people's complexion can go south in a hurry if they over do it with solar exposure.

Then there are a few celebrities who have the appearance of an old catcher's mitt or have the facial features of a 100-year-old crocodile. These celebrities aren't getting any "Oil of Olay" or "Estee Lauder" moisturizing contracts anytime soon.

Beauty is a funny thing. Forever a concern for both the beautiful and un-beautiful alike, attaining and maintaining a consistent level of seemingly effortless attractiveness requires, for most of us, a lot of work.

Saturating our television shows, magazines and movies (with the exception of most French films, to their credit), conventional standards of beauty are as inescapable as they are unrealistic. They demand of us a level of aesthetic perfection that most of us simply cannot deliver - not even with the most expensive pills and potions at our disposal.

So, what's a regular ...
