Kate Moss earned herself another big honor just as her first-ever spread for Playboy was unveiled. She was the woman of the hour when she attended Monday night's British Fashion Awards in London, where she will be receiving special recognition for her work in the fashion industry. Earlier that day, Kate showed off her spread for Playboy's 60th anniversary issue, which included pictures of the supermodel in the brand's iconic Playboy Bunny suit and a shot of Kate going topless. Of course, Kate is no stranger to nudity, having gone nude for a number of fashion campaigns over her career.
Paltrow chose a black dress decorated with sparkly blue-and-gold embroidered flowers from Williamson's Spring 2014 collection. The dress caught and reflected just as much light as the Christmas tree she posed in front of, making for an undeniably festive look. Of course, similarities between this look and the tree itself are to be expected — Williamson designed them both!
And while it's a calculated risk competing with an iconic holiday decoration, we think Paltrow pulled it off.
Gwyneth Paltrow blended in with a Christmas tree when she hosted a holiday-themed event with designer Matthew Williamson for Kids Company in London on Monday evening. The actress has temporarily moved back to England while she films her latest project, Mortdecai, in London alongside Johnny Depp and Ewan McGregor. Gwyneth has gotten a head start on Christmas, having helped unveil the holiday windows at the Printemps department store in Paris earlier this month.
Gwyneth Paltrow added a bit of star power to a Paris department store today. The actress was on hand at Printemps to help the store launch its Christmas decorations, which were designed by Prada. Gwyneth teased her appearance in the City of Light on WhoSay, snapping a photo of herself in a cab and writing, "Good evening Paris! On my way to see Mrs. Prada #SaltzmanIsTheQueen." The hashtag was a nod to Elizabeth Saltzman, Gwyneth's longtime friend and stylist who also happens to be the international social editor at Vanity Fair. The connection between Gwyneth and Saltzman is especially interesting, since the actress reportedly developed a contentious relationship with the monthly glossy after she tried to put a stop to a story that was being written about her. While the feature has yet to run in the magazine, it will reportedly be hitting newsstands sometime soon.
New details have emerged about Vanity Fair's rumored takedown piece on Gwyneth Paltrow. It reportedly investigates whether Gwyneth had an affair with Miami billionaire Jeff Soffer. Recently, the magazine's editor in chief, Graydon Carter, announced that the publication was working on a feature article and that it would run despite Gwyneth's attempts to stop it.
Sources have allegedly told The New York Post's Page Six that Vanity Fair looked into Gwyneth's relationship with Jeff, seeing whether the pair had an affair back in 2008 when he reopened the Fontainebleau Hotel. For her part, Gwyneth's rep told Us Weekly that the reports are "ridiculous," explaining that she and her husband, Chris Martin, have been friends with Jeff for a long time. Meanwhile, Jeff tied the knot with Elle Macpherson this past August, having dated for two years before their Fiji wedding.
Back in May, The New York Times reported on Vanity Fair's tougher coverage of celebrities, saying that Gwyneth had emailed her friends, asking them not to provide information to the magazine. "Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine," she wrote. "If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again." Her frustration follows a long history with the magazine, as she was first photographed for Vanity Fair back in 1995 at age 22, and she's appeared on five covers since.
Sandra Bullock put her rapping skills on display on the UK's Jonathan Ross Show when she bust out a rendition of The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" during an interview. According to Sandra, she first learned the lyrics to the song so she could impress a boy in high school. She said, "I was like, 'Next time I go to that dance, I'm going to know every word. I'm going to make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I'm going to catch his eye, and say the words. And he's going to like me.' And sadly it worked." Sandra also later showed off another musical skill, dancing on a giant piano, when she played chopsticks during a Big piano scene reenactment with fellow talk show guest Tom Hanks.
Of course, Sandra isn't the only A-list actress who know how to rap — Gwyneth Paltrow famously showed off her skills when she sang NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" on a different British talk show, The Graham Norton Show, back in 2011. Watch Gwyneth get down with her bad self below.

Blake Lively announced today that she will soon be launching her own lifestyle company about "living a one-of-a-kind, curated life." The actress's new project is already drawing comparisons to Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle brand, Goop, which, interestingly enough, rang in its fifth anniversary today. While it's hard to compare the two companies when we haven't even seen Blake's new venture, we have noticed a lot of similarities between the two actresses over the years. From their family connections to Hollywood to their love of cooking, Blake and Gwyneth have a lot more in common than you would think. Here are our reasons why the former Gossip Girl star is destined for Gwyneth-level greatness.
They Kinda Look the Same
Let's start with the obvious, shall we? Both Blake and Gwyneth are blond, have blue eyes, are naturally tall and thin, and have wide, friendly smiles. If we didn't know any better, we would guess that these two are sisters.
They Both Were the Pretty, Popular Girl in High School
A commenter on Reddit who claimed to have gone to high school with Blake said she was "super pretty and very popular," adding that she was "really nice and actually really funny . . . she was voted class clown in the yearbook." Meanwhile, Gwyneth's time at Spence in NYC was infamously profiled by New York magazine, where she was remembered by anonymous former classmates as popular and "six feet tall with blonde hair down to her waist."
They Love to Cook
Blake Lively famously won over Ryan Reynolds by baking him cupcakes on the set of Green Lantern. She has also studied cooking at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and whipped up a tasty-looking pastry for Vogue's web series Elettra's Goodness. Of course, Gwyneth's love of food is well-documented as she's written two cookbooks.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Amanda de Cadenet, and Rita Ora met up for a girls' dinner at the Night + Market restaurant, a popular spot for LA foodies, last night. Amanda shared a snap from the dinner on Instagram, writing, "Two tired mamas and the delicious Rita Ora at our local Thai." Meanwhile, Rita, who is currently staying on the West Coast with her boyfriend, Calvin Harris, tweeted about the meeting, saying it was "gonna be a BIG one." A fellow diner tells POPSUGAR that they saw the trio share larb and other Thai street food dishes while talking about everything from motorcycles to motherhood. The source added, "Rita was first to arrive and Gwyneth second — Gwyneth rushed over to greet her with a big hug, and once Amanda arrived, the three shared lots of laughs and high-fives over their meal."
While the meeting between Gwyneth and Rita may seem a bit surprising, the two are actually connected by Gwyneth's husband, Chris Martin. Rita opened for Coldplay during their Spring 2012 tour, and she grew close to Chris, who helped her with her music and even gave her advice on her track listing for her 2012 album, Ora.
