Kaia Gerber channelled one of her mother Cindy Crawford’s famous looks when she stepped out for her 18th birthday party over the weekend.

The rising model partied with Leonardo DiCaprio and his girlfriend Camila Morrone, designer Alexander Wang, supermodel Helena Christensen, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Ru Paul, and models Winnie Harlow and Kendall Jenner at the bash on Friday night.

Hosted by her parents – mum Cindy and dad Rande Gerber – along with her brother Presley Gerber, Kaia partied at the Paradise Club in Times Square, with the event coinciding with the start of New York Fashion Week.

The brunette beauty was dressed head-to-toe in a leather Versace outfit that closely resembled Cindy’s look at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards.

While Kaia rocked a corset top and leather skirt featuring gold buckle detailing, her mother’s outfit from almost three decades ago featured a similar Versace corset and buckles, but with leather trousers.

And for her daughter’s milestone birthday bash, the iconic supermodel wore a metallic gold wig and matching jumpsuit.

The burlesque-themed party featured a disco dance floor and a series of performances from drag artists, including Amanda Lepore, who pulled Kaia up on stage.

“Happy Birthday @kaiagerber such an honour to perform and sing happy birthday to you gorgeous,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a snap of the two together.

Kaia celebrated her actual birthday on 3 September, and Cindy took to Instagram to share a sweet photo from her daughter’s childhood, alongside a photo from Kaia’s cover shoot in the October 2019 issue of British Vogue.

“From this to THIS in the blink of an eye! Happy birthday @kaiagerber. I’m so proud of the young woman you’ve become! All the best for the year ahead!” the 53-year-old wrote.

Camila Morrone has unveiled her new collaboration with luxury brand Naked Cashmere.

The 22-year-old model has created essential travelling pieces for the Naked Cashmere x Camila Morrone capsule collection, including long duster cardigans, jogger sets, and bralettes.

Morrone, who is currently dating Leonardo DiCaprio, has also designed a special travel set – featuring a blanket, eye mask and a pair of socks – which the model herself travels with.

The line will be launched alongside Naked Cashmere’s upcoming fall collection, with prices ranging from $85 (£70) to $595 (£491).

The Mickey and the Bear actress struck up a friendship with the brand’s co-founders Bruce and Leslie Gifford back in 2014, when she first began her modelling career, and the trio discussed the collection while keeping in touch.

“This being my first collaboration, I wanted to do something that felt organic and close to me,” Morrone said in a statement. “From the first time I worked with the brand and the family behind it, I dreamt of creating a line that was everything I ever looked for in cashmere. Something I could travel in, something I could feel sexy in, something I could be comfortable in.”

Photographer Zoey Grossman shot the sultry campaign images, which feature the model posing in pieces such as the cashmere bralette and joggers as well as a long-sleeved sweater on the beach.

This isn’t the first time that Naked Cashmere has collaborated with a famous face on a collection. Back in 2016, Italian fashion stylist Erica Pelosini, who has worked with Olivia Palermo and Jessica Chastain, created her own dual-gender capsule line.

Leonardo DiCaprio felt uncomfortable using flamethrower in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Leonardo DiCaprio was uncomfortable setting his co-stars on fire while filming a scene for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The Revenant star plays fictional actor Rick Dalton in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, alongside a star-studded cast including Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Margot Robbie, Luke Perry, and Damian Lewis.

In the film, faded TV star Dalton features in a movie called The 14 Fists of McCluskey, where he plays the role of a flamethrower-wielding Nazi hunter with an eye patch who sets a bunch of men on fire.

However, according to stunt coordinator Robert Alonzo, DiCaprio had major concerns about shooting the scene, as he had to use the weapon himself.

“Leo was not very gung-ho with all the flamethrower stuff. Literally, he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. And I completely understood it. Normally you use a stunt person in that spot to be able to manage firing a flamethrower at somebody,” Alonzo told the Huffington Post. “(Leo) is actually lighting them up and holding a flame to them for about seven to eight seconds as the flamethrower is traversing back and forth around eight guys that he’s never met.”

The Oscar-winning actor was finally convinced to do the scene after some “coaxing” by supervising stunt coordinator Zoe Bell. Following a flamethrower demonstration by Alonzo, who showed the 44-year-old how to safely handle the weapon, DiCaprio applauded the stunt team and decided to go ahead with the shot.

“That is psychologically difficult to do, so kudos to him on being able to stay in character and do that scene,” Alonzo added.

Leonardo DiCaprio despised Once Upon a Time in Hollywood moustache

Leonardo DiCaprio kept “spitting out” his fake moustache during the filming of his new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

In Quentin Tarantino’s hotly anticipated feature, the Oscar winner takes on the part of Rick Dalton, a TV star, who, alongside his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), try to revive their careers in the film industry at the time of the Charles Manson murders in Los Angeles in 1969.

Some scenes in the feature required DiCaprio to sport a pretend moustache for a part in a Western-themed show and later on in a Spaghetti Western, but according to make-up artist Sian Grigg, the actor struggled with the look.

“The moustache drove Leo mad, because I had to leave it really long and it always went in his mouth,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was so hot out and the moustache kept going in his mouth, and he’d be spitting it out. He did the same thing in the scene as they filmed ‘off camera’ when he was supposed to be losing it a bit. It made us laugh as he kept spitting it out and the wig was quite long as well.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Grigg explained that she used WM Creations glue, a professional product used to apply facial pieces, to attach the moustache.

And the make-up expert insisted that DiCaprio’s moustache was meant to appear fake, as means of keeping in line with the setting of the flick.

“It was meant to look phony because they didn’t have good materials back then like we do now,” commented Grigg. “We were copying the style of films shot in that period and also covering Leo’s character up to look different and unrecognisable, which in the movie he’s not used to.”

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, also featuring Margot Robbie, Margaret Qualley, Austin Butler, Dakota Fanning, and Al Pacino, is now showing in U.S. cinemas.

Robert De Niro to reunite with Martin Scorsese once again on Killers of the Flower Moon

Robert De Niro is set to team up with frequent collaborator Martin Scorsese on Killers of the Flower Moon.

The duo, who have worked together on acclaimed films such as Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, are preparing to debut their next collaboration, The Irishman, in September.

However, it appears De Niro and Scorsese are already planning to work together again on an adaptation of David Grann’s 2017 non-fiction novel, Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.

The film will be set in 1920s Oklahoma and centre on members of the Osage Nation Native American tribe, who became the richest people, per capita, in the world when oil was found under their land. They were subsequently murdered one-by-one and a conspiracy was later unearthed.

Editors at Deadline report that De Niro is in early negotiations to join the film, but the offer is imminent. However, Scorsese told Geoffrey Standing Bear, principal chief of the Osage Nation, during a meeting last week that De Niro would be playing the murderer Bill Hale, according to reporters at Osage News.

If he officially signs on, the 75-year-old will join Scorsese’s other most frequent collaborator, Leonardo DiCaprio, who boarded the project last year. De Niro and DiCaprio previously worked together on 1993’s This Boy’s Life and 1996’s Marvin’s Room.

Scorsese will also produce the film, which has been written by Eric Roth, alongside DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions, among others.

According to the local news report, Scorsese will be working closely with members of the Osage Nation for guidance on culture and language.

Pre-production has begun on the project and will step up in November, with filming set to start in the spring. The team is currently in talks with the Osage County film office to discuss shooting in the area.

Leonardo DiCaprio: ‘I’ll keep acting as long as people want me’

Leonardo DiCaprio plans to keep acting for as long as he continues to be hired for projects.

The Oscar winner made his screen debut with TV show The New Lassie when he was only 15 years old, and he has since gone on to work with the likes of acclaimed directors Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Christopher Nolan, and Quentin Tarantino.

Although he has taken some lengthy breaks from acting over the years, including between 2015’s The Revenant and his new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, DiCaprio has insisted he feels so lucky to be an actor, he wants to keep going as long as he can.

“I suppose at one point I might retire, but I always looked at this as the greatest gift anyone’s ever given to me,” the 44-year-old said to Variety when asked about retirement. “I feel like I won the lotto so I’m going to keep going as long as they’ll have me.”

In his new movie, DiCaprio plays Rick Dalton, a fading Hollywood star in the 1960s who has been reduced to guest spots on television shows and Spaghetti Westerns in Italy.

When asking about the ups and downs of an actor’s career, the Titanic star said, “I know there’s ebbs and flows in everyone’s careers – sometimes they’re a little hotter, sometimes you may not be hot at all – but if you love what you do, you gotta just keep doing it.”

But if he ever ends up in a position like his character, when he’s not such a hot property, the actor insists he will bid his time and “wait around until something good pops up.”

DiCaprio appears alongside Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie in Tarantino’s latest project, which hits U.S. cinemas from Friday.

Margot Robbie wowed in a white dress at the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premiere in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Some of the film industry’s biggest stars turned out for the premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, which focuses on the story of TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), as they set out to make names for themselves in the film industry at the time of the Charles Manson murders in Los Angeles in 1969.

Australian actress Margot portrays Sharon Tate in the movie, and for the star-studded event, she opted for a flowing white Chanel number with a deep-V neckline, flowing sleeves and floor-sweeping skirt.

Referencing the time period of the film, the 29-year-old’s hairstylist Bryce Scarlett styled her blonde locks into soft curls, while her make-up artist Pati Dubroff opted for a “hot summer ’70s vibe,” and used Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Make-up Base and the Duo Bronze et Lumiere Clair palette to achieve her bronzed complexion.

Margot accessorised her ensemble with gold chandelier earring and a gold purse.

Meanwhile, Leonardo and Brad both looked handsome in sharp suits, and filmmaker Quentin chose a black suit with a velvet blazer.

Rumer Willis, who plays Joanna Pettet, rocked a beautiful white Grecian gown from Ong-Oaj Pairam and high heels from Christian Louboutin, and was supported by her sisters Scout and Tallulah.

Margaret Qualley, who takes on the part of Pussycat in the film, made it a family affair too, stopping to pose in her sheer Prada dress alongside her father Paul Qualley and sister Rainey.

Rising star Austin Butler, who plays Charles “Tex” Watson, was joined by his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, who looked stunning in a black Armani gown, with other castmembers to turn out for the bash included Timothy Olyphant, Rebecca Gayheart, Bruce Dern, and Zoe Bell.

Additionally, celebrities such as Adriana Lima, Rob Lowe, Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg, Pierce Brosnan, Britney Spears, Robin Thicke, John Stamos, Chris Hemsworth, and Sofia Vergara got dressed to the nines for the night as well.

Quentin Tarantino planning to turn new movie’s fake western series into real show

Quentin Tarantino is planning to turn the fictitious western show featuring Leonardo DiCaprio’s character in new film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood into a genuine series.

The director spent so much time researching the TV genre of the 1950s, he started dreaming up plots for Bounty Law, the fake show he created for DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton to star in as Jake Cahill.

“I did it to get in the head of Bounty Law (and) I ended up starting to really like the idea of Jake Cahill, as a character,” Tarantino told Deadline. “I really started loving those half hour 50s western scripts. The idea that you could write something, like, 24 minutes, where there was so much story crammed in those half hour shows, with a real beginning and a middle and an end.

“Also it was kind of fun because you can’t just keep doubling down and exploring. At some point, you’ve got to wrap it up. I really liked that idea.”

Tarantino also speculated that he would recast the lead role in Bounty Law as he wasn’t sure DiCaprio would sign up for a TV show.

“I’ve written five different episodes for a possible Bounty Law black and white half hour western show (but) I can’t imagine Leonardo is going to want to do it. If he wants to do it, that would be great. I’m not planning on that but I have an outline for about three other episodes,” he explained.

And the award-winning filmmaker is already pitching his ideas to streaming giant Netflix, as well as U.S. networks HBO, Showtime and FX.

“So I’ll probably write about three other episodes and then just do it. Direct every episode. They’re a half hour long. I wouldn’t mind doing it for Netflix but I’d want to shoot it on film,” he continued.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which also stars Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, and Kurt Russell, hits cinemas from 26 July.

Brad Pitt grills Leonardo DiCaprio over iconic Titanic death scene

Brad Pitt has teased Leonardo DiCaprio for an answer on whether Jack could have fit on the door at the end of movie Titanic.

In the James Cameron-directed classic, the 44-year-old played Jack Dawson, who was seen sacrificing himself at the end of the movie so his love Rose, played by Kate Winslet, could survive the ship’s sinking by staying afloat on a door.

Fans of the movie often argue over the moment, insisting that there was room for them both of them on the door, and in a chat with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz, DiCaprio’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood co-star badgered the actor for a definitive answer once and for all.

“Could you? Could you squeeze in?” Pitt questioned, to which DiCaprio replied: “No comment.”

Pitt was then asked by Horowitz for his opinion, to which he replied: “That is fun. Well I’m going to go back and look now, certainly.”

Margot Robbie joined the pair, reminiscing about how she “bawled her eyes out” as she watched Jack’s hypothermia set in, but her The Wolf Of Wall Street co-star maintained he had “no comment”.

She then asked: “Did you mention it at the time, should we make the door bigger?” But an unmoved DiCaprio would only reply: “Like I said I have no comment.”

“Could you? Could you squeeze in?” interjected Brad, still looking for an answer from his co-star, but the Catch Me If You Can actor stood firm with a “no comment.”

DiCaprio’s tight-lipped response comes after director Cameron revealed the star wasn’t keen on saying the movie’s famous line, “I’m the king of the world.”

“We had tried this and tried that, and tried this line and tried that line and nothing was really working,” the 64-year-old explained to BBC Radio 1’s Ali Plumb. “I said, ‘All right, I’ve got one for you, just say I’m the king of the world, and just spread your arms out wide, and just be in the moment, and just love it and celebrate the moment.'”
