It was a special night in France with the 20th annual amfAR gala taking place during the Cannes Film Festival today. The event raises money for AIDS research, and this year, it featured The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show, as well as an auction. Guests were in for a special treat since a trip to space with Leonardo DiCaprio was up for bid! Before the fun began inside, though, stars hit the red carpet in their finest. Model Alessandra Ambrosio worked the cameras in a metallic gown while Goldie Hawn brought a pop of color in yellow and Rosario Dawson kept it neutral in black. Milla Jovovich, Jessica Chastain, in a red Saint Laurent look, Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, and Ellie Goulding also made appearances.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reportedly split last weekend, and now Us Weekly claims that a big reason behind the breakup was Kristen's scandal with Rupert Sanders last July. Sources told the magazine that Rob put Kristen "through the ringer" about the affair and "held it over her head," even after they had gotten back together last year. One source continued, "Ultimately, it was like, 'Either we move past this or we don't.' It wasn't good for either of them."
Rob and Kristen allegedly split after Rob didn't attend a 27th birthday bash that Kristen had organized for him. Sources claim that Rob had a separate party at his home, which Kristen didn't attend. Robert Pattinson was spotted moving items out of Kristen's home on Sunday, with their two dogs, Bear and Bernie, by his side. For her part, Kristen hasn't been sulking alone at home since the news broke — she allegedly hung out with friend Taylor Swift over the weekend and was seen smiling during a dinner with pals in LA on Monday. Sources have left the idea of a reconciliation open ended, saying that the two could very well get back together.

Kate Middleton wore a canary yellow coat by Emilia Wickstead to Queen Elizabeth's annual garden party Wednesday. The pregnant duchess got to spend some quality time with her in-laws, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and smiled as she spoke with the guests. Each year, the queen hosts a tea party for 8,000 members of the British public. A reported 270,000 cups of tea are served, as well as thousands of sandwiches and slices of cake. Last year was the first time the Duchess of Cambridge attended the event, where Kate cut a much different figure in a lovely pink dress.
This year, Kate topped her springy coat with a Jane Corbett hat. As she waits for the arrival of her first child and heir to the British throne, the duchess has kept quite busy. Kate attended a friend's wedding over the past weekend, and has been shopping for baby supplies.
Nina Ricci-clad Carey Mulligan wielded an umbrella to premiere The Great Gatsby in rainy Sydney today. She had the help of costars Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton and director Baz Luhrmann to debut the film Down Under while Joel Madden, who is currently a judge on the Oz version of The Voice, was also in attendance. Last night wasn't the first time the Gatsby crew donned umbrellas as accessories since their Cannes premiere last week got rained on as well.
Mr. Gatsby himself, Leonardo DiCaprio, didn't make it to the latest press stop since he's still in Cannes unwinding. After wrapping his work duties, he let loose flirting in a Cannes nightclub over the weekend and later hit the water to take part in the yacht scene. Isla Fisher also missed out on the premiere in her native Australia since she debuted her other project Now You See Me in NYC last night.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield showed support for Emma's mom at the Peace, Love & A Cure Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation benefit in Cresskill, NJ, yesterday. The couple shared a sweet kiss before Emma took the stage alongside her brother, Spencer, to present an award to their mom, Krista, who is a breast cancer survivor. Emma also honored Alan Ennis, the CEO of Revlon, for the company's continued support of women with cancer. As an ambassador for the makeup brand, Emma has done her fair share of charity work with Revlon and even attended their annual EIF Run/Walk For Women in NYC earlier this month. But she wasn't the only star at yesterday's charity bash — Mary J. Blige dropped by the event, and she and Emma excitedly greeted each other during the cocktail reception.

Gwyneth wore a printed silk dress by Prabal Gurung for the fashionable fete and posed for pictures with Kate, who was clad in a white A.L.C. jumpsuit and Smythe blazer. The two friends have each been staying busy, both personally and professionally — Gwyneth's weekly Goop newsletter is in its fourth year and has expanded to include designer collaborations and the recent launch of city guide apps. She also hit the red carpet for the Met Gala, celebrated big success with the blockbuster release of Iron Man 3, and gave us some laughs with her most over-the-top recent quotes. Kate, meanwhile, is diving into new projects after it was announced that she'll be joining the cast of Zach Braff's upcoming film, the Kickstarter-financed Wish I Was Here.

Gwyneth Paltrow has landed another job and, according to her, it's perfect for her busy lifestyle. Hugo Boss announced today that Gwyneth will be the face of its new Boss Jour Pour Femme fragrance. The new scent is the daytime counterpart to the brand's Nuit Pour Femme line of scents, which also features Gwyneth in its ads. She told WWD that modeling for a fragrance is the best new gig to add to her already hectic schedule. Gwyneth said, "I can only really do one film a year now because of my family and how it all works out, so it's so nice for me to be able to work for a great company and, you know, I'm going to Spain next week for two days so I still get to travel and meet really interesting people and have a work interaction. But it's not like I am out of the house for three months." Gwyneth also revealed that she starts her day at 7 a.m., when she wakes her kids up, drops them off at school, and then returns home to spend the rest of her day working on Goop.
With her duties for Iron Man 3 wrapped up, Gwyneth is back to focusing her time and energy on her Internet newsletter. She threw a party for Goop's Summer season in London yesterday, which featured a star-studded guest list, including Kate Hudson and Tom Ford.
Angelina Jolie made headlines around the world when she announced last week that she had gotten a preventative double mastectomy earlier in the year, but her decision to wait to announce the news was surprising to some. Now, People magazine reveals why Angelina and her partner, Brad Pitt, decided to wait until almost a month after her final surgery to talk about her health crisis. A source told the magazine that Brad did "everything he could" to keep the surgery a secret, and that the two wanted to keep things low-key until she had fully healed. A family insider said, "They really wanted Angie to be able to recover and rest before they shared the story." According to the insider, the couple used early morning appointments and rental cars to avoid being discovered by the paparazzi.
Brad did a good job keeping Angie's health struggles a secret when he sat down for an interview with Esquire, which will hit newsstands later this month. However, Brad did go into detail about his love for Angelina, saying that she is "the best person." Aside from releasing a statement showing his support for Angelina, both Brad and Angie have laid low since the announcement. The two will most likely join up again on the red carpet when Brad hits the premiere circuit to promote his new film, World War Z, in June.
