What Serena Williams’ Wedding Guests Kim Kardshian, Eva Longoria (and More!) Wore
Serena Williams’ wedding guest list rivaled the Met Gala in terms of celebrity attendance (right down to an appearance from Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour). And just like the Met Gala, stars were dressed to impress. Check out what some of the most A-list attendees wore to the tennis superstar’s New Orleans nuptials to Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian.

Kim Kardashian (above) went for a minimalist, understated blank spaghetti-strap tank dress and black stiletto sandals with barely any jewelry ( a far cry from what she wore the last time she was a high-profile wedding guest).

A short history of Kanye West's obsession with Stanley Kubrick
Thanks to leaked audio posted by Page Six, we learned that Kanye West had something of a meltdown backstage at Saturday Night Live after some of his staging was compromised. He went on to call Taylor Swift "fake-ass" and added that he's "50% more influential" than any living human being, then comparing himself to director Stanley Kubrick more than once. Is he obsessed with the man who brought us 2001: A Space Odyssey? One of Kanye's first mentions of Kubrick came as he described the making of "Flashing Lights," his 2008 music video. Touting the video's production, he said, “Look at it graphically, how it starts. With the car, the orange sky, the color palettes, the blue sky, the car pulling up with the orange headlights. And just the beautiful women, taking the Helmut Newton type photo and bringing it to real life and crashing it against Jim Henson and George Lucas type whimsy and taking,

ICM Hires Kaplan Stahler’s Andy Stabile on International TV & Media Department

Andy Stabile has joined ICM Partners as an agent in the international television and media department, the agency announced Tuesday.

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon: Timeline of the Split

  • TooFab
The critics said it wouldn't last ... and, apparently, they were right.TMZ broke the story this morning that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have been living separate lives since May and that divorce is "a done deal."And, if you look back at their actions over the past couple months, the warning signs were definitely there. The first cracks in the foundation of their six-year marriage reportedly sprouted when Cannon got incredibly candid about his exes while talking to Big Boy's radio show on March 27. Nick was asked to reveal five famous hookups -- and named Mariah, Kim Kardashian, Selita Ebanks, Christina Milian and Nicole Scherzinger. He also said Mariah made him wait to have sex until their wedding night.Even Cannon admits those comments got him in how water with his wife, later telling Howard Stern in an interview on April 2 that "When we bring up -- I'm

That’s Enough With the Special Guest Stars, ‘Catfish’

MTV’s Catfish doesn’t always save the big catches for its season finales – the first season finale centered on a tale so classic that it seemed as if it should be served with a side of fries and some coleslaw, a genuine romance marred by one half of the couple sending pictures of someone else and lying about her life (they eventually worked it out, at least for a bit), while the second season ended with a somewhat similar storyline (though this one was elevated by the revelation that the Catfisher had already run this same game on the Catfishee before) – so while we’ve come to expect blockbuster season finales from most other shows, the reality program seems disinterested in delivering that kind of television. Unless, of course, there’s a supermodel available to assist hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph as they go about their searching (read: stalking, Googling
