She’s due anytime now! Charlotte Casiraghi, the prettiest face in Monaco since Grace Kelly, will give birth before the end of the year.

Spotted last week at a charity gala, Charlotte beamed in a delicate floor length maxi dress by French boutique “1 et 1 font 3.”

The soon-to-be father, French comedian Gad Elmaleh, recently confirmed that the couple are not engaged.

Natalia squeezes LVMH: couple alert!

One is a child of communist Russia, and the other a child of ruthless captialism, but this summer its free market love for supermodel Natalia Vodianova and LVMH heir Antoine Arnault.

The two lovebirds couldn’t stop their public displays of affection while vacationing in Ibiza this August.

Natalia, 29, freshly split from Brit real-estate heir husband Justin Portman, didn’t waste any time going after the Arnault heir, who is currently ranked the wealthiest family in France. LVMH also happens to be one of her major employers, as she does campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Guerlain, Givenchy among other labels.

Marion Cotillard, Natalie Portman…

Who will be the next pregnant vedette… it comes in three’s!

Marion Cotillard is just finishing up her latest project “Second Coming” in time for a romantic and pregant start to 2011. The 35 year-old actress is engaged and expecting with boyfriend/French heartthrob Guillaume Canet (formerly married to actress Diane Kruger). The two have been dating for three years.

The couple walked the red carpet together at the Marrakesh Film Festival earlier this month, immediately setting off pregnancy speculation as Marion appeared much more voluptuous than usual in her Dior Spring 2011 dress (perhaps not the best choice?). A simple diamond engagement ring can be spotted as well.

Is the whole world engaged, pregnant, or both? Petite B wants to know!!

 (Secretly thinking the recent rush of engagements/pregnancies is pure economics:  the Great Recession is over!)

What happened to Eva Green?

 

 

Eva Green has just dropped another role. After Gemma Arterton said she will replace Green in “Waiting for Robert Capa”, now Diane Kruger steps in to take over her role in “Farewell, My Queen”. The “National Treasure” blonde beauty will be seen playing Marie Antoinette in the upcoming movie, The Playlist says.

She joins Lea Seydoux and Gerard Depardieu whose involvements have been known before.

Portman engaged & preggers with hot Frenchman, Ben Millepied

Quelle surprise! C’est un bébé pour Natalie Portman et son chéri Benjamin Millepied.

Just when the gossip mill seemed lethargic after a cozy Christmas, news hits the wires this morning of Natalie Portman’s engagement to French choreographer Benjamin Millepied. Oh, and did we mention a bébé on the way?

The Bordeaux born-and-raised Millepied is as accomplished in his art as his new leading lady. Once touted as the “French Baryshnikov”, the sexy frenchman has spent much of his professional career in New York City since leaving France at age 16.

Felicitations to the hot couple!

KarL on becoming a supermodel:

Model Sigrid Agren,  images , dispersed with the banal interview questions and got straight to the point in a backstage interview with Karl at the Chanel show in Paris.28_karl_lg1

Karl, what is your advice on becoming a supermodel? He responds:

It’s not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. That’s why the girls who were famous in the ‘90s can still work for advertising. People know their faces. The little blonde Russian, Sasha (Pivovarava), sash, has a face people can remember instantly, but for other models today, people think, Is she this one or that one? It’s very difficult, but, you see, in fact there is no advice, because all circumstances are very different. It depends on what you are ready to give, the kind of life you bring, what may be exciting or disappointing … You can’t accuse anyone of not doing enough to help you, because, besides yourself, there’s nothing anyone can do. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new. But it’s the most … (hits hand on table) unjust … (hits hand on table) thing in the world.

Actress Marion Cotillard scores coveted role

She has nearly 40 films under her belt, but French actress Marion Cotillard is barely known outside of France. The only two English-speaking films you might remember her from are Tim Burton’s “Big Fish,” and Ridley Scott’s “A Good Year.”

Now things are about to change for the 32 year old Parisian. She has just signed on to star in director Rob Marshall’s new musical masterpiece, “Nine,” alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sophia Loren, Penelope Cruz, and Javier Bardem. Marshall, who directed “Chicago” and “Memoires of a Geisha” is keen to take on the big screen adaptation of this Tony award-winning Broadway musical, and it looks like Hollywood A-list is too.

The story centers around a film director who can’t concentrate on his work because he’s dealing with numerous women in his life including his lover, wife, and dead mother. Poor guy. It is based on the Fellini movie “8 1/2.” Cotillard will play the director’s wife, Louisa.
