After taking a super-giant leap and investing in a pair of leather pants this past winter, the absolute last thing I want to do is stash them away this season. It just makes me too sad to think of them stuffed into the back of my closet, nestled for months between my cumbersome coats and fuzzy sweaters.

So, it's not happening. Instead, this season I'm summer-izing my leather skinny pants with breezy, warm-weather staples in soft neutrals. The lighter pieces soften up the tough-girl pants and, of course, eliminate any chance of overheating. Check out the look below for an outfit perfect for summer dinners, rooftop bars or simply for when you get tired of your flowy printed dresses (it happens!).

This years marks the 50th anniversary of "Cleopatra." The epic 1963 film remains one of the most extravagant and expensive movies ever made, $42 million back then, so that's $330 million with inflation-more than "Avatar." It was also responsible for one of the biggest love affairs of all time, the romance between co-stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Twentieth Century Fox and Bulgari have commemorated this anniversary with a newly-restored version of the film premiering at Cannes Film Festival and a limited release in theaters. Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain, attended the Cannes event wearing Elizabeth Taylor's iconic Bulgari jewelry.
If you haven't seen "Cleopatra," it is certainly worth viewing (a new Blu-Ray debuts on May 28). Taylor's entrance to Rome as the Egyptian Queen is one of the most elaborate and memorable scenes in cinema. We had the great opportunity to fly to Rome to check out Elizabeth Taylor's stunning costumes, her Bulgari jewels, and take a tour ofRead More »from "Cleopatra" 50th Anniversary Celebration

Lawrence attended a photo call for the film in, you guessed it, Dior. A black strapless bustier top with flattened ruffle detail, skinny trousers, and coral pumps made for an appropriate casual but put-together look.

WWD/Steve Eichner Do you remember when Lindsay Lohan had a leggings line? No? I didn't know about it either, but it turns out that not only did she have a leggings business, but now the manufacturer has issued a lawsuit against the troubled star, claiming that her reputation is making it too difficult to sell the 6126 clothing line to buyers.

The manufacturer, DNAM, filed a $5 million breach-of-contract against Lindsay in a California U.S. District Court. In a document obtained by E! News, DNAM claims it had some success with the leggings line but had to pull back "because they did not want to be associated with Lohan's drug-addled image." As you all know by now, Lindsay has been in and out of rehab several times during the past few years.

- “Mad Men” madness has already spawned the rebirth of shifts and maxis in bold, mod colors. Now make way for the hair—beehives, to be exact, recently rocked on red carpets by celebs from Marion Cotillard to Joesphine Jobert.
“Hair always follows fashion,” vintage-hair expert Kathie Rothkop, 64, told Yahoo! Shine via phone from her California Salon Glam. “Plus, we’ve been doing the straight, flat thing [with hair] for about 10 years now. To make it different, what can we do? We make it bigger.”
Rothkop started doing hair as a teenager in the mid ’60s, at the peak of popularity for the original beehive. Now she's seeing a noticeable uptick in beehive-seeking customers once again.
That’s no doubt thanks to celebrity influence. Years after Amy Winehouse brought the look back into an edgy kind of vogue, folks like Cotillard—who sported a perfect pouf at the Cannes “Blood Ties” premiere Monday—may really make it stick. Jobert’s locks were similarly styled, contrasting with a modern strapless Read More »from Beehives Are Back: How to Get Hollywood's Favorite Retro Hairstyle

The 49-year-old actor and father of six (with fiancée Angelina Jolie) decided to spill to to Esquire about the seemingly dark days prior to meeting Jolie on the set of the 2005 flick "Mr. & Mrs. Smith"-something he seems to do a lot of lately.
"For a long time I thought I did too much damage-drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired," he said. "I spent years f-ing off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany."
Obviously, he doesn't directly state Aniston's name-but this isn't the first time he's called attention to wasting his time

The Biggest Celeb Tax Cheats Another day, another rich person who has failed to pay their taxes. It seems that the wealthy-no matter how much money they have earned in their careers-are always finding themselves behind when it comes to properly filing taxes. Yes, we know that it can be daunting to log onto TurboTax when you could be getting bottle service at a hot club or buying a medieval castle, but frankly it's a bit baffling when someone has so much money, that they can be so irresponsible.
