When Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer hit the Screen Actors Guild Awards with half of her head shaved totally bald, Hollywood gasped in shock. And then those of us who are Hunger Games fans smiled, knowing she did it to play filmmaker Cressida in Mockingjay.) “I haven’t shaved off all my head of hair off, no,” Natalie told us back in October, assuring readers that Cressida’s look is “definitely an interesting interpretation of the reference in the book. I would like to think that people won’t be disappointed with the choices that we made.”
The look is seriously extreme, but let’s be honest –– it’s nothing new.

Paparazzi camera technology is…really startling sometimes. Also startling? Cassie‘s willingness to get completely topless aboard Diddy‘s yacht off the coast of Capri this week. There have to be dozens of butlers and servants bustling around, girl! Then again, we guess if we had a crazy nice body, one of the world’s top five richest rap artists as our boyfriend and access to a superyacht, we’d be a lot less prudish about our semi-nakedness too. Step aboard a superyacht and your top probably just drops right off. Luckily a glass of Moet, $100,000 in cash and a signed photo of Rick Ross suddenly appear in it’s place, so it’s not like you feel bad about it or anything.
Despite the fact they are currently (and probably always) enjoying half-nude vacays, Diddy and Cassie have never formerly acknowledged their relationship. That being said rumors of them dating have been swirling since at least 2008 and, oh right, she’s topless aboard his yacht. Man, how exactly does one get a gig as Diddy’s protege? It seems like a pretty sweet deal. Do you think the members of Danity Kane looks at this photo with a mixture of rage and jealousy, or are they just glad they get to save on sunscreen? Maybe both?

The ladies have killed the fashion at the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival. Since last week, we’ve seen plunging necklines, cocktail dresses, minis and back-baring gowns. We’ve even seen a sexy pantsuit or two. The styles are split down the middle between short dresses and full-length gowns, with a handful of ladies opting for trains that recall the looks of silver-screen sirens. Celebs like Cassie, Tessa Ia, and Isabelle Huppert chose a more leggy look,with Cassie taking the sexy route while Tessa looked more pretty and prim. On the other hand, Rita Ora chose a ’50s Hollywood all-white gown and Kelly Brook chose to shine in a body-hugging full-length dress. New Bond girl Berenice Marlohe caught our eye with her shiny gold number, too. Check out which celebs kept it short and which of the ladies chose length at Cannes.

Grab your stereotypical sombrero everybody, it’s Cinco de Mayo! In the American tradition of commercializing obscure holidays that have very little to do with their actual countries of origin, today’s festivities must include a street dance with a mariachi band, many tequila shots and some probably inauthentic Mexican food. How else to commemorate a minor victory over French invaders? Well, we’d also like to celebrate some of the other things our neighbors south of the border have given to the world, say for instance, a number of Hollywood’s hottest. Talented stars like Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, and Mario Lopez are just a few of our favorite Mexican stars. While not all listed celebs are full-blood Mexican — and some on this list may surprise you — we like to think they all have a healthy dose of Latino pride. Take a break from your margarita blender and toast our 20 favorite celebs with Mexican roots. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Kanye West can legitimately give himself a pat on the back. His show at Paris Fashion Week took place yesterday and we actually enjoyed some of the looks. It was light years better than his first collection, even though the models were complaining about the shoes. Kim Kardashian wore the same skyscraper heels — nice move, Kanye — but we didn’t really focus on them as we were too busy staring at the fur stole she had on. It looked like it was eating her alive. He was also in his humble-Kanye avatar telling WSJ, “I learned a lot from the last one. I’m learning every day. I’m a new designer. I’m taking baby steps.”
He may be a new designer, but he ain’t a new celebrity. And therefore his celebrity pals turned up to support him in droves. Apart from Kim, Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz also represented. Alicia has been a staple at Fashion Week this year turning up looking really gorgeous at Chanel earlier that day. Diddy was there with Cassie and Rosario Dawson. Leigh Lezark and Ricardo Tisci were also spotted. Take a look at the vibe in the gallery below. It also has photographs from the show, in case you’re curious. Which you totally are.

Kim Kardashian wasn’t the only Kim turning heads at Diddy‘s 40th birthday party at the Plaza last night. Lil’ Kim, putting aside her beef over Notorious, helped celebrate her old producer’s big day. The shindig featured guests from all corners of the industry—from Baby and Cassie to Denzel Washington and Bono—and Al Green as the night’s entertainment. Check out the festivities in the gallery below.
