By Amelia Proud

The competition for best celebrity Halloween costume is hotting up, but Kim Kardashian emerged tonight as a clear front-runner.

The newly married 30-year-old looked incredible as Batman's alluring enemy Poison Ivy at the Midori Green party in New York.

Kim was hosting for the melon-flavoured liquor brand and therefore encouraged to go along the green route for her costume.

And boy, did she!

The reality juggernaut went to great lengths to make the temptress who seduces Batman's alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, with a toxic kiss, her own.

She brought a new meaning to tree hugging in her clinging ivy dress, which showed off those astonishing curves.

The red wig so associated with the DC Comics character complemented Kim's olive skin perfectly and made a refreshing change.

With make-up pared down, Kim allowed the colours to do the talking and finished the look off with gold accessories and shoes.

The flourish of leaves slanting above her almond eyes set the fantastical ensemble off perfectly.

In fact, Kim was so amazing as Poison Ivy, that she even nabbed Batman's trusty sidekick, Robin.

He was by her side, looking suspiciously like her best friend and PR impresario Jonathan Cheban.

Obviously, husband Kris, Humpries, 26 , has called shotgun on the Batman suit for a later date.

Marriage has done wonders for Nikki Reed.

The 23-year-old starlet couldn't stop smiling as she promoted the latest Twilight Saga film, Breaking Dawn Part, in Rome today.

The brunette beauty has been glowing and grinning non-stop on a European press tour for the film despite having to leave Paul MacDonald, her husband of just two weeks, at home in Los Angeles.

She and the season ten American Idol contestant tied the knot on October 16.

They have had something of whirlwind romance after meeting and falling in love back in April.

Although her face and skin was lit with the natural glow of happiness, she enhanced her look with a fabulous frock, as well.

Also attending the Italian photocall was co-star Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper, the vampire brother of her character, Rose, in the film.

There was a lot of love inside the Auditorium Parco Della Musica's Lancia Cafe today as the two co-stars recalled their first meeting.

but sweet words for one another

The 26-year-old actor reminisced: 'I remember the first tiem we met. We were at the airport heading to the film's set. I had my beloved guitar and the agent at check-in did not want me to carry it on the plane, but for me it was really important.'

'Nikki was there and convinced them to let me carry it aboard [the aircraft]. From day one, Nikki was on my side.'

After his touching statement, the actress looked at her co-star and said: You are wonderful.'

He responded: 'You are a beautiful person.'

Despite their words of love onstage, Jackson, along with the rest of her Twilight co-stars, failed to attend her October wedding.

Whether their words are genuine or not remains to be seen, but it's a fact that the two will be spending a lot of time together in the upcoming month.

Taylor Swift takes action website claiming topless private pic country star

Taylor takes Swift action against website claiming it has 'topless private pic' of the country star
By Ann Pride

She's known for topping the charts. But Taylor Swift's lawyers say it's not her in a topless photo posted on a gossip website.

The country singer's legal team is threatening to file a trademark-infringement lawsuit against the website Celebrity Jihad, after it posted a picture of a semi-nude woman claiming it is most likely Taylor.

a website claiming it has a topless photo of the singer

The photo shows a blonde with long, curly hair that the site says 'bears a striking resemblance' to the country cutie posing on a bed with the caption 'Taylor Swift Topless Private Pic Leaked?'

According to TMZ, Taylor's legal team has fired off an angry letter to Celebrity Jihad saying the woman in the photo is not Taylor and accusing the site of spreading 'false pornographic images' and 'false news.'

The Grammy winner's lawyers are also demanding the picture be taken down.

Mail Online contacted Celebrity Jihad, but so far no one from the website has responded.

As her attorneys wage legal war to protect her wholesome image, Taylor is staying focused on her career.

The performer has been busy travelling across the U.S. promoting her very first fragrance Wanderstruck.

She unveiled the scent last month and revealed it is named after the lyric ‘I’m wonderstruck blushing all the way home’ from her song Enchanted.

The multi-faceted musician has also been working on her fourth studio album.

It is currently slated for release near the end of 2012.

Madonna attends W.E-Premiere London walks red carpet Graham Norton Claudia Winkleman

Madonna shrugs off the boos to enjoy premiere of W.E... even if her friends didn't turn out in support
By Simon Neville

As an international superstar, it is probably not the sort of response she is used to.

But Madonna managed to shrug off boos on the red carpet in London last night – and was all smiles at the premiere of W.E., the film she has directed.

Wearing a long, flowing black L’Wren Scott dress with a plunging neckline and a diamantĂ© pattern, she also did not seem to care that the film has been widely panned.

Ironically, the 53-year-old declared: ‘It doesn’t matter what the critics think, it’s what the public thinks.’ But many fans who had waited hours on the red carpet were left disappointed when she spoke to just a handful.

As she entered the cinema in Leicester Square, the chorus of boos rang out.

However, Madonna, revealed she loved directing and would want to do so again.

And she hinted that she would like a musical of her life made, adding: ‘I’d want Andrea Riseborough to play me, because she’s incredible to work with and I’d work with her again.’

The British actress, 29, plays Wallis Simpson in W.E., part of the 55th BFI London Film Festival.
Guestlist: Claudia Winkleman and Graham Norton attended the premiere, but there was a distinct lack of Hollywood A-list elite

The film follows a two-tiered love story about Wally Winthrop, a woman in 1999 who is infatuated with the 1930s marriage of King Edward VIII.

It is Madonna's second venture as a director, with her first being in 2008, stepping behind the camera for Filth And Wisdom.

Critics were unkind to the Golden Globe-winner, giving the musical comedy poor reviews, despite British favourite Richard E Grant starring in it.

Last night, Madonna was joined by some of fashion’s biggest names including Georgio Armani and Valentino.

However, she also walked the red carpet with lesser known faces like Graham Norton and Claudia Winkleman.

The former presenter of Strictly Come Dancing spin-off show It Takes Two was in attendance as husband Kris Thykier produced the film.

Guy Ritchie's ex-wife caused controversy at the Venice Film Festival press conference last month while promoting her new film.

She was overheard ridiculing a bouquet of hydrangeas a fan gave her, but later mocked herself in a YouTube video to recover from the incident.

Meanwhile, the Material Girl singer – who has a fortune of more than £400million and spends millions helping impoverished children in Africa – has been accused of neglecting her older brother.

Anthony Ciccone, 55, said she, along with the rest of their family, has left him to rely on food handouts from charities after he lost his job at a successful vineyard run by their father, Tony, in Michigan. He claims he has been homeless for the past 18 months as a result.

‘My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time,’ he said. ‘You think I haven’t answered this kind of question a bazillion times – why my sister is a multibazillionaire, and I’m homeless on the street?’

The second of eight children, he said he had been forced to resort to extreme measures to survive. ‘I don’t have any income,’ he added. ‘I’ve got to go collect bottles and cans, do odd jobs.’ Madonna’s spokesman refused to comment.
