Holly Valance recreates famous pose by Sophia Loren in 1960 movie

She'll be the Millionairess soon! Newly-engaged Holly Valance recreates famous pose by Sophia Loren in 1960 movie

It's not secret that Holly Valance's man has a bit of money in the bank.

And now that she's marrying him, the Australian singer is set to become a millionairess, or rather, billionairess.

So it's fitting that she has recreated a pose, from the 1960 film The Millionairess, made famous by Italian screen siren, Sophia Loren.

Fingers crossed: Holly Valance recreates a famous scene in the 1960 movie The Millionairess, which starred siren Sophia Loren, as she promotes EuroMillions

In a new EuroMillions campaign, the 28-year-old can be seen in a sexy corset and knickers with stockings hoisted up by suspenders.

She adds some old Hollywood glamour with a massive hat, white gloves and peep-toe heels with a circle of diamonds on each one.

Her blonde hair is pulled back and tiny pearl earrings are added to the ensemble.

Years gone by: Sophia played an arrogant heiress who married to please her father, in the film which was set in London

Holly holds her left hand up and crosses her fingers - urging EuroMillions players to check their tickets to see if they are a missing Christmas millionaire.

But she has nothing on Sophia, now 77, who, at 26, was two years younger than Holly when she starred in the movie, set in London.

The Oscar-winner played an arrogant heiress who married to please her father.

Italian Oscar-winner Sophia, now 77

The Strictly Come Dancing star Holly last week recreated a scene from another famous movie One Million Years B.C.

The then 26-year-old Raquel Welch, now 71, played cave girl Loana in the 1966 film.

Holly showed off the results of her gruelling dancing schedule in her own fur bikini, as she posed on some rocks with her fingers crossed.

No doubt Holly's fiance, property developer Nick Candy, will be a proud man when he sees the photos.

The former Neighbours star took to her Twitter page last week to announce he had got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Nick, 38, who has been dating the star for two years, whisked her away to the Maldives on Wednesday for a Christmas break, and proposed to her on the beach with the words 'Will you marry me' written in fire.

And Holly took to her Twitter page to post the photo of him proposing and wrote: ' 'And I said YES!!! ♥ Happiest day of my life!!!!! Xxxx.'

Kylie Jenner gets some tips from Taylor Swift on age-appropriate dressing

Much better! After her VERY grown-up outfit, Kylie Jenner gets some tips from Taylor Swift on age-appropriate dressing
By Sarah Bull

At just 14 years old, Kylie Jenner is just getting started when it comes to experimenting with fashion.

But, after she stunned fans with her incredibly grown-up appearance at an event earlier this month, it seems Kylie has decided to take some tips from Taylor Swift when it comes to age-appropriate dressing.

Kylie donned the same gold Contrarian dress previously sported by Taylor, 22, back in October as she attended an event in Los Angeles on Monday night.


Much better! Kylie Jenner, 14, appears to have taken some style tips from Taylor Swift when it comes to age-appropriate dressing in her pretty gold dress

The girly boat neck dress is certainly in sharp contrast to the Hervé Léger bandage dress she wore to the launch of the Kardashian Khaos store in Las Vegas in early December.

Kylie teamed the bow dress with black nail varnish, poker straight hair and black heels.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Kylie and older sister Kendall are set to release their own line of jewellery.


Too grown-up: Kylie's gold dress is in sharp contrast to the bandage dress she sported to an event earlier this month

The girls, the daughters of Kris and Bruce Jenner, have teamed up with jewellery designer Pascal Mouawad for a new line ranging in price from $20 to $60.

They said in a statement: 'We love accessories and it’s amazing that we’re going to have our own line to be able to wear every day—and for our friends to wear, too!'

Mouawad added: 'With their popular show on E! Entertainment Television, millions of teenagers look to Kendall and Kylie for style advice, so they were truly a perfect fit for the company and I’m thrilled to partner with them.'

Next stop... global domination: It seems Kylie and Kendall will follow their older siblings' fame, after announcing plans for their own jewellery line

The announcement of their jewellery line is the latest sign that the girls are set to follow in the very large footsteps of their older half-siblings, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and the Kardashian empire.

It was revealed earlier this year that Kendall and Kylie could soon star in their own E! reality show, after head of the cable channel Bonnie Hammer said she plans to add more Kardashians to the roster of TV shows featuring the family.

Talking of plans for a series around Kylie and Kendall, Hammer said: 'I think it will have its own life expectancy and we'll just go along with it and help hone what's right for E! and what's not right for E! as we develop a whole other world.'

It was of course a lavish affair and now fans can get a glimpse of just how glamorous the Kardashian's annual Christmas Eve party really was.

Photographs show the famous family posing with Santa Claus, opening presents by the Christmas tree and making the most of the festive period and quality time together.

Kim, 31, looked far from miserable about her recent heartache as she glammed up for the occasion in a floor-length dress and no doubt asked the big man himself if he could just grant her a speedy divorce from Kris Humphries.

The silver grey garment was long-sleeved and Kim teamed it with a pair of matching stilettos and several bangles.

However, it wasn't long until she's had enough of being dressed up and emerged wearing a pair of gnome-print pyjamas.

The brunette giggled and played with the young kids as she donned a pair of reindeer antlers too.

Glam to casual: Kim showed off her curves in a floor-length dress but soon changed into a pair of pyjamas

She spent time cuddling her adorable nephew Mason as they admired her younger sisters new chocolate Labrador puppies.

The two-year-old had also been dressed up for the party and wore a dark red velvet blazer with a white shirt and black bow tie.

His mother Kourtney looked happy and relaxed as she posed with her son who wore a hat made of balloons.

She showed off her growing baby bump on a black shift dress that had lace sleeves, which seemed to match her boyfriend's attire.

Scott Disick wore a black and white checked suit with a white shirt and looked rather serious as he posed with the rest of the family.


More presents: Kris posed with Santa Claus and pointed to her iHome docking station whereas her Grandson Mason held a giant candy cane

Lady of the house and mother to the children, Kris Jenner, looked exceptionally glamorous in a black floor-length dress that was covered in sequins.

She also stopped by the staircase for a chat with Santa and looked rather happy with one of her gifts - an Apple iHome docking station.

Kris also spent time mingling with her party guests which included plastic surgeon Garth Fisher and former ox Sugar Ray Leonard.

Family portrait: (L-R) Kendall, Rob, Scott, Kourtney and Kim stop to have a photo together

Her husband Bruce Jenner seemed happy to step away from the spotlight and is rarely seen in any of the photographs, but he does look happy in a group shot that sees the family all come together.

His teenage daughters Kendall and Kylie looked older than their years in more glamorous party dresses.

Kendall wore a rather short black fitted dress that was decorated with tiny gold studs whereas Kylie opted for a short cream dress that had a pleated skirt.


Lookalikes: Kourtney and her younger sister Kendall both wore short black dresses for the annual event

Is that Louis or Vuitton? Kylie shows off her new chocolate Labrador puppy


All grown up: Kendall and Kylie also made sure they took time to sit with Father Christmas

The girls looked extremely pleased with Santa as they sat on his knee and paraded around the house with their new puppies.

It was recently revealed that the pair have named the dogs Louis and Vuitton.

Someone who didn't look so pleased to see Father Christmas was Mason.

The toddler looked annoyed as his father Scott held him up on the bearded man's lap and appeared desperate to get back down.

Pouting perfect: Kim and Mason lean in for a kiss with Louis and Vuitton while Maria just strokes them

His parents couldn't miss an opportunity for a photograph though and posed for the cameras as their son pulled a face.

They were later seen posing again by the Christmas tree as Mason clutched his giant candy cane and looked tired in his mother's arms.

Kim's brother wasn't so keen on being in front of the cameras either and only posed for a few pictures with his family.


Sleek in black: Maria Menounos was invited to the Christmas Eve party
and spent time with Kourtney

Battle of the legs: As Kim chatted with Maria she made sure the split of her dress was open

The former Dancing With The Stars contestant wore a simple black shirt and matching trousers with red suede shoes.

But he wasn't the only Kardashian sibling who wasn't pictured much as someone who wasn't even there at all was Khloe.

The 27-year-old was in Dallas with her husband Lamar Odom for the opening of the NBA season as he is now playing for the Dallas Mavericks.

But the famous family made up for Khloe's absence as they were joined by various celebrity friends.

U.S. star Maria Menounos arrived at the party in a low-cut black dress that showed off her trim figure perfectly.

The leggy actress posed with Kourtney and Kim before admiring the puppies along with the family.

Fun with my friends: Actress twins Malika Haqq and Khadijah Haqq pose with celebrity make-up artist Rob Scheppy and Kim

Also there to have a good time were twin actresses Khadijah and Malika Haqq.

The women - who have starred in the Kardashian reality programmes - donned Christmas hats as they posed with Kim and celebrity make-up artist Rob Scheppy.

It's no surprise that the guests were so happy and excited because judging by the amount of treats that were available, their sugar intake was probably sky-high.

A photo of some of the food that was laid out shows a variety of cupcakes, toffee apples, profiteroles and a giant gingerbread house.

Lots of treats: Food at the party included cupcakes, toffee apples

Duchess Kate brings some festive sparkle to bravery awards in velvet strapless dress and diamonds she got as a wedding gift
By Alanah Eriksen

Just hours before, she joined her husband for a Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace with the Queen.

But it was just the young royal set at the Sun Military Awards tonight.

The Duchess of Cambridge was the belle of the ball in a strapless black velvet dress as she walked the red carpet with her husband Prince William, who looked dapper in black tie.

Prince Harry was two steps behind his older brother at London's Imperial War Museum, also donning a suit.

Kate's black Alexander McQueen gown - the same designer as her wedding dress - had frill trim around the bust and a fishtail-style skirt.

It was so long on the five-foot, 10-inch Duchess, that she had to keep hitching it up to keep it from scraping on the ground.

She held a matching black velvet clutch and donned black pumps.

The 29-year-old accessorized with jewellery she received as a wedding present - a chunky diamond necklace and a matching bracelet and earrings.

Her shiny brunette locks had been styled into loose curls with a side parting for the night.

Kate was still sporting the 'Scousebrow' - thick eyebrows made famous by the Liverpudlian show, Desperate Scousewives.

And she donned her trademark thick black eyeliner around her green eyes.

A lashing of light pink lipstick and her look was complete.

Among the celebrity guests was David Beckham and his two eldest boys Brooklyn,12, and Romeo, nine.

The trio - looking dapper in suits - looked as though they had caught up on sleep after flying in from Los Angeles this morning with the rest of the family.

The Beckhams have returned to London for a British Christmas at 'Beckingham Palace' in Hertfordshire which Victoria is said to have decorated.

It featured a scooped cowl-neck in green sequins.

It is the same dress that Strictly Come Dancing runner-up Chelsee Healey wore for the show's after-party on Saturday.

David Cameron launched the awards today with a message to the heroes: 'The whole country wants to say thank you.'

Speaking at a Downing Street reception, the Prime Minister and Deputy PM Nick Clegg joined forces to heap praise on the 'Herculean bravery' of the phenomenal men and women across the services.

More than 80 nominees and their partners packed into the historic No10 state room where the politicians mingled with the guests.

Among those invited was Sergeant Duncan Slater, 32, and his wife Kim, reported the Sun.

The soldier was blasted 30ft from his vehicle by a Taliban bomb, breaking several bones in his body — including his back.

Last year Sgt Slater chose to have both legs removed when the breaks did not heal but went on to cycle the length of Britain in aid of his wounded comrades.

Mr Cameron said at the event: 'I think the Military Awards is now a really brilliant event in the annual calendar — it's an opportunity for the whole country to say a very big thank you to people who've shown enormous bravery and courage in our Armed Services.

'So it's a delight to have you here at lunchtime at No10 Downing Street.

'We have a lot of parties here at No10 — for all sorts of charities and organisations — but I can't think of a more deserving group of people to come and have something to drink, eat and celebrate with today.'

Mr Clegg said: 'You shouldn't just be proud of the servicemen and women with you in your work, and you shouldn't just be proud on behalf of your families and communities but I hope you do also know that you make the whole nation very, very proud indeed.'
