FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
JUSTIN THEROUX & JENNIFER ANISTON
They’ve only been dating since May, but Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are steadily getting more serious. The actress, 42, and actor-screenwriter, 39, haven’t officially moved in together, say sources, but they’re spending nearly all their time together on both coasts. On June 15 they headed for rooftop drinks at the Gramercy Park Hotel, happily hand in hand, and they double dated at N.Y.C. eatery Il Buco three days later. Aniston seems smitten. “He’s crazy funny, charming and thoughtful,” says designer Cynthia Rowley, a pal of Theroux’s. Adds another source: “Jen’s excited about the future.”
BACK TO WORK
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt put away their Cannes Film Festival evening wear, moved the family-Maddox, 9, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 2-to the Mediterranean country of Malta and got down to business: hers as UN goodwill ambassador for refugees, his on the set of his new film. The couple did find time to play with their kids at a local water park, where “they were all well-behaved and having fun,” says an observer.
ASHLEE SIMPSON & VINCENT PIAZZA
COZY NEW COUPLE?
Ashlee Simpson is back in the dating game four months after splitting with rocker husband Pete Wentz. On June 15 the single mom (their son Bronx is 2) stepped out with actor Vincent Piazza in New York, where the affectionate new pair kissed and strolled through the city with their arms around each other. Reps for Simpson, 26, and Piazza, who was on The Sopranos and now plays gangster Charles “Lucky” Luciano on HBO’s Prohibition-era drama Boardwalk Empire, had no comment.
Will & Kate’s Stateside Visit:
WHAT WILL SHE WEAR?
EXPERTS PREDICT HIGH STYLE AS THE ‘DELIGHTED’ DUCHESS PREPARES TO HIT HOLLYWOOD JULY 8!
Touching down in L.A., “She’ll be just as confident as when she met the Obamas,” says Reiss exec Andy Rogers. “Hopefully she’ll be wearing one of our dresses!”
For her 11-day North American tour, she’ll spend an estimated $65,000 on clothes, per the U.K.’s Sunday Times.
CONSUL GENERAL RECEPTION
That evening she’ll mingle with politicos and flaunt her fabulous legs in a cocktail dress, predicts Majesty magazine’s Joe Little.
Look for U.K. labels like Issa (left). “She’s our style ambassador,” says the Daily Telegraph‘s Hilary Alexander.
She’ll wear a “glam” suit to watch Wills ride at a Santa Barbara club, says Little. “She has bought some hats,” he adds, “but many of those could be for Canada, where the program is more formal.”
She’s planned every outfit herself. “She browses online for ideas,” says a fashion source.
A who’s who of Hollywood will don black tie to greet Will and Kate at this dinner. “Those two, they’re like magnets,” says Brit power producer Nigel Lythgoe.
McQueen for a Princess?
“She feels comfortable in labels she knows,” says Alexander.
Diana “would wear lots of jewels, but Kate is more understated,” says Little.
Before flying home, she’ll spend a day with inner-city kids and veterans. “She won’t want to offend,” says Little. “She’ll play it safe in a suit.”
