Default Cheryl Cole enjoys a night off as she catches Mary Poppins on Broadway

Dressed-down Cheryl Cole enjoys a night off as she catches Mary Poppins on Broadway




She's been constantly busy since arriving in America for her role on the judging panel of X Factor USA.
But last night Cheryl Cole decided to indulge in a bit of 'me time' as she went to see Mary Poppins on Broadway in New York.
The 27-year-old star wore a khaki lion-print T-shirt, cream blazer and jeans as she posed backstage with the show's stars Ashley Brown and Gavin Lee after watching the performance.

Cole looked happy and relaxed as she took some time out from her busy schedule and chatted to the actors while she proudly clutched her programme.
She must have been thrilled to have a night off after attending the Fox Upfront event on Monday night alongside fellow X Factor USA judges Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul.
Cole flew into New York earlier this week after a brief trip to the Cannes Film Festival, where she caused a stir when she arrived at a premiere looking stunning in a plunging white dress.

Casual chic: Cheryl went for a dressed-down look, but still looked smart


And now it seems the Girls Aloud singer could soon be seen making an appearance on the big screen, after apparently meeting up with movie producer Harvey Weinstein during her time in Cannes.
Cole is said to be in talks with three major production companies Stateside after impressing bosses with her star quality.
A source told The Sun: 'It has been amazing to see the reception Cole has had after going to Cannes. As soon as she got back to America, people from California were getting in touch about having her in their films.
'It just shows how quickly her profile has rocketed now she is on the US X Factor.

'At the moment it's just about sorting out when she can actually fit in any filming because her schedule is full until Christmas. She's very keen though.'
At the New Amsterdam Theater last night, Cole went for casual chic in her outfit combination - a sharp contrast to the recent brightly-coloured combinations she has been sporting.
And her style change could be down to the fact that Cole has apparently been told she needs to become more ‘old-style sophisticated and glamorous’ by her new bosses in Hollywood.

A source within the production team told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Obviously Cole is a gorgeous woman, but she turned up to the first day’s filming of The X Factor looking a bit weird in purple flares.
'Everyone was talking about how she looked – but for all the wrong reasons. The level of glamour expected by American audiences is much higher.

'Here, women in television are groomed to within an inch of their lives.’

What's next - a skinhead? Corrie's Helen Flanagan has new bleached cropped pixie hair cut even shorter




She's provoked a mixed reaction to her new look - but Helen Flanagan has chosen to ignore the naysayers and go even more extreme with her makeover.

The 20-year-old star, who plays Rosie Webster, has now had her bleached blonde hair cut even shorter into an even more extreme pixie cut.

However, it seems she's concentrating more on her body than her hair - and was seen heading to the gym for the first time yesterday.


No sweat: Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan heads for her first day at a new gym in Wilmslow yesterday showing off even shorter hair

She was seen arriving at a private gym in Wilmslow, dressed in tight black leggings with a £113 grey and fuchsia sequin jumper from Katie Price's Day 22 clothing line.

Writing on her Twitter earlier this week, she confessed: 'Ok my love affair with chocos has had to break off. No more flabby beaver x joining gym tommorow x'

Helen is currently trying out her new look while she takes a break from the show.


Short of it: The soap star showed off an even shorter haircut than before as she parked up her new £70,000 Range Rover






Out and about: The star was also spotted shopping in Alderley Edge this week in heels and skintight jeans



Coincidence: The Corrie star was spotted today walking past Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini today as he lunched in and Alderley Edge cafe

She apparently signed a new £70,000 a year deal in March and is due to head back onto the cobbles later this year, with bosses thinking of ways or writing her new look into the show.

It seems like she's been using the new income by investing it wisely too.

She's just bought a £70,000 Range Rover and a new flat.

However, she revealed on her Twitter that she is having a few teething troubles at her apartment.

She wrote on her Twitter: 'Have to have a hot bath as im freezing havnt worked out my heating in my appartment yet tragic really.'

Helen is set to head to London meanwhile this Sunday for the BAFTA TV Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane.
Coronation Street is up again EastEnders, Waterloo Road and Casualty in the Continuing Drama category.

She was seen looking at outfits to wear for the bash last week on a shopping trip near her home - where her hair looked considerably longer than yesterday.

Rosie, who has been on Corrie for 11 years, was previously known for her long brunette hair and more glamorous image, but has decided to go for a much edgier look on her break from the show.

Delta Goodrem glams up at the BMI Awards... but there's no sign of rumoured new love Nick Jonas




She caused quite a stir when she was pictured last week holding hands with 18-year-old heartthrob Nick Jonas.
But the teenage singer was nowhere in sight last night as Delta Goodrem stepped out in Beverly Hills for the BMI Awards.

The 26-year-old Australian singer looked stunning in a one shouldered pale yellow and gold mini dress and matching heels as she arrived at the event, held at the Beverly Wilshire hotel.

Later, she took to the stage for an energetic rendition of The Prayer, a song written by Canadian songwriter David Foster who was named BMI Icon at the event.

Delta, who is in the U.S. working on her fourth album, performed the number alongside up-and-coming singer Cody Karey.
The song was made famous by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion back in 1999.

Delta announced her split with long term boyfriend Brian McFadden back in March.

Meanwhile, R&B singer Keri Hilson also turned on the glamour, when she arrived at the event in a floor length white and silver sequinned gown.
The 28-year-old, famous for her 2009 hit Knock You Down, also performed at the event, which is held each year to honour the songwriters and publishers of the most performed pop songs in the U.S.

Lady Gaga, Jason Derülo and record producer JR Rotem all became the BMI Pop Songwriters of the Year, each contributing four songs to the year’s most-performed list.

Sunny Kirsten Dunst is picture perfect at the Cannes photocall for her provocative new film Melancholia




She is promoting a film in which she stars as a bride battling crippling depression.
But Kirsten Dunst couldn't have looked any sunnier as she attended a glamorous photocall at the Cannes Film Festival today with her co-stars.
The actress wore a bright yellow dress and red lipstick to promote Melancholia, from director Lars von Trier, which is in competition at the festival.

Kirsten stars as Justine in the film, a bride who is gripped by depression on what should be the happiest day of her life.

Lars von Trier, the director behind the controversial Antichrist and Dogville, promised before this film: 'no more happy endings.'
The film takes a turn when the wedding guests witness Melancholia - a planet that has been hidden behind the sun and is now on a collision path with Earth.





Sunshine style: The actress looked elegant in the yellow dress, which she teamed with sleek hair and bright red lips


Ensemble: The cast of Melancholia (L-R) Brady Corbet, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kirsten, John Hurt, Udo Kier and Jesper Christensen pose with director Lars von Trier (centre, glasses)

The apocalyptic climax has had film critics in awe, with reviewers today rushing to call the film 'visually stunning,' 'breathtaking,' and one gushing that the ending was 'the most powerful I've ever experienced.'
Many are already dubbing this performance the best of Kirsten's long career to date.
The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye said: 'I haven't seen Dunst this good in a long time. She clearly enjoyed working on the picture.'





Leading ladies: Kirsten shared a laugh with her pregnant co-star Charlotte Gainsbourg, who plays her sister in the film



Sisterhood: The actresses faced the bank of photographers together



VON TRIER SHOCKS WITH NAZI JOKE


Baz Bamigboye in Cannes

Lars von Trier shocked a Cannes Press conference by talking about himself of being a Nazi.

His leading ladies Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg looked on shocked as he said that he had nothing against Jews 'but okay I'm a Nazi.'

Whether such a statement was the director's idea of a joke, no one can be certain.

The film- maker often deliberately stirs up debate and makes provocative statements to create publicity for his films.

Earlier Von Trier said that Dunst wants him to make a 'three to four hour ****o' film with him. She just smiled wanly at him.

But his new film is not one that can be easily dismissed, nor is it anything like his 2009 film - the almost unwatchable Antichrist.

The director described his new work as ' the most beautiful film about the end of the world'.


The actress was joined today by co-stars including Charlotte Gainsbourg, glowing in a black dress shirt dress which stretched over her pregnant stomach.
Charlotte, 39, starred in Lars Von Trier's Antichrist and plays Justine's sister Claire.
Kiefer Sutherland, Jon Hurt, Alexander Skarsgaard and his father Stellan all take starring roles in the film.
The whole cast and director Lars assembled at the photocall today, ahead of tonight's gala screening.
Baz Bamigboye says that: 'the fear expressed in the film is about our state of mind, not the clashing of planets.
'However, it struck me more as an exploration into the tradition of marriage and the assumption that an official union between a man and a man will make everything perfect for a couple.

'Von Trier seems to be suggesting that marriage is a sad and depressing affair and wonders why the hell we go through it.




A-list life: Kirsten has been enjoying the perks of the festival, and yesterday was pictured arriving at the Lady Joy boat



Living it up: She sipped champagne aboard the luxury vessel before her press duties today


Kirsten has been in the glitzy French seaport for the whole week, soaking up the sunshine and lavish surroundings ahead of her press duties for Melancholia.
She was spotted aboard the luxury vessel Lady Joy yesterday, sipping champagne and mingling with guests.
Earlier in the week the Spider-Man actress wondered around in a bathing suit at the iconic Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc.

Feeling a bit blue, Nicola? Miss McLean cuts a healthier figure in cobalt-coloured dress




She's looking healthier than she has in a while after recently admitting to having an eating disorder.
But Nicola McLean barely managed to raise a smile yesterday despite looking absolutely stunning.
The glamour model was snapped arriving at the launch of her manager Claire Powell's face and body clinic last night.

Blue is the colour... and the expression: Nicola McLean barely managed a smile as she arrived at the Fabulous Face and Body clinic launch

She looked as though she had gained a few much-needed pounds onto her tiny frame, her cobalt blue dress flattering her curves.

Her pretty face looked fuller and her brown lock hung prettily down her shoulders as she teamed the dress with an animal-print clutch bag and orange shoes.
But she didn't look in the party mood as she and footballer husband Tom Williams arrived at the party in Harley Street.

Last month, Nicola admitted that she had an eating disorder and sometimes goes for a whole day without food.

The 32-year-old said she relies on coffee and Diet Coke to get her through the day after losing six stone over the past year.
The former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star told the magazine: 'I go for long periods without eating. But then I will eat, I'm not afraid of eating, but I don't eat normally.

You could have stayed at home! Nicola and husband Tom Williams looked like they'd rather be somewhere else

'I don't make myself sick. I wouldn't eat every day. No way.'
But last night she looked as though her battle with food was on its way to being won as she looked healthy and slightly fuller.
However, she and Tom looked like they'd have preferred to have stayed at home, their glum expressions giving it away.

Nicola was joined by fellow celebrities and CAN Associates clients at the launch party in Harley Street.

Peter Andre and TOWIE's Amy Childs turned out for the event as well as Kerry Katona and Danielle Brown.
