Kate Middleton Makes Adorable Face, Dresses Baby Bump in Blue

 

Kate Middleton arrives at an evening reception to celebrate the work of The Art Room charity at The National Portrait Gallery on Apr. 24, 2013 in London, England.

Kate Middleton isn't just happy to be pregnant, she's ecstatic! The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for an evening engagement at the National Portrait Gallery in a pale blue Emilia Wick stead frock and matching heels, and practically glowed as she greeted the gathered crowds.

Middleton's knee-skimming, sleeveless dress showed off her arms, but only gave a hint of her growing baby bump with its cinched waist structure. The 31-year-old mother-to-be was due to host a reception for The Art Room, a charity that works with children to increase their self-confidence and independence through art.

Beyonce and Jay-Z visit to Cuba queried in US Congress

A visit to Cuba by US pop singer Beyonce and her rap star husband Jay-Z is coming under scrutiny in connection with the US economic embargo.

Two Republican members of Congress have requested official information on whether the couple had US government permission to travel there.

The stars caused a local sensation when they celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in Havana this week.

There was no immediate comment from representatives of Beyonce.

A source familiar with the couple's itinerary told the Reuters news agency the trip was fully-licensed by the US treasury department as a "people-to-people" cultural visit that did not involve tourist activity, such as trips to the beach.

Singer Beyonce and Jay-Z celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary with a trip to Cuba

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart, both members of Congress from Florida, have asked the US treasury department to clarify what licence the two stars had obtained to travel to Cuba.

Beyonce and Jay-Z turned heads in the Cuban capital on Thursday when they toured the streets of Old Havana.

Visiting historical landmarks, they took photos and chatted to local residents.

Beyonce, a household name in her home country, sang the US national anthem at President Barack Obama's inauguration in January.

Americans are not allowed to visit Cuba and spend money there unless they have special US government permission, according to guidance on the US treasury website.

The famous actresses have topped a poll conducted by MyCelebrityFashion.co.uk and beaten the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Helen Mirren to sit at the top, the Daily Star reported.

It was found that 69 percent of the women surveyed said that they did in fact look to certain celebrities as inspiration for ageing gracefully, and would like to look like some when they grow older.

They were then asked to choose from a list of more than 50 female celebrities, which they would most hope to follow in the footsteps of when it came to growing older gracefully.

The poll revealed that the second most graceful ager is Olivia Newton-John, followed by Helen Mirren and First Lady Michelle Obama.

1. Demi Moore - 55 percent vote

2. Olivia Newton-John - 41 percent vote

3. Helen Mirren - 39 percent vote

Being an Idol for Young Girls in India Is Not Easy

It's still not sunk in," says 18-yearold ZoyaAfroz, about being crowned Ponds Femina Miss India Second Runner Up 2013. The Lucknow lass says she still pinches herself to feel it's all for real. "I always wanted to be a Miss India, and now when that dream has come true, I can't thank God enough," she says. "It's been four days since I was crowned and the phones haven't stopped ringing. More than me, it's my mother and father who are happy. They are the ones who have supported me in all of this and stood by me like a rock. This crown is all because of them," shares Zoya.

"The Miss India title is so huge, I am realizing it now. As a kid I used to tell my mom that AishwaryaRaiBachchan was my idol and I wanted to be like her, but now when I have been crowned a Miss India myself, I know it's not just about glamour and beauty. There's so much more to it and my respect for the former title holders has increased so much. Because they have done justice to this title, and I hope I can do too. This title has changed my life. There's so much of respect and recognition involved with being a Miss India. Being an idol for all the young girls in India is not an easy task," she gushes.

Oblivious Tom Cruise looks far from grey-t in his dodgy clobber

Tom Cruise may be a highly-acclaimed box office star – but he won’t be winning many plaudits for his taste in fashion.

The actor wore a ghastly grey combo of suit and roll neck jumper at the Hollywood premiere of his new movie Oblivion.

He was joined at the high-profile movie bash by his co-stars Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough, who both looked particularly dazzling posing next to drably-dressed Tom.

Olga flashed her cleavage in a plunging frock, while pale-skinned Brit Andrea was on glowing form in an elegant cream gown.

Meanwhile, Tom has vehemently denied that he discussed his divorce on a German TV show earlier this week.

ProSieben reported that the Hollywood titan said he was surprised by his split from former wife Katie Holmes.

The network quoted him as saying: “I did not expect that. Life is a challenge.

“To be 50 and have experiences and think you have everything under control, and then it hits you - that's what life is.

“Life is tragicomic. You need a certain sense of humour.”

However, a spokesperson for the actor insists the quotes have been fabricated.

The rep said: “The entire interview was about his career. He was not asked any personal questions.”
