Kim Kardashian and Kanye West flew the friendly skies, headed for New York last night on the red eye, in advance of the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Gala on Monday.
This year's theme for the annual event is "Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion," and a Jezebel article speculated the "2015 Met Gala Will Probably Be an Asian-Themed Shitshow." Well, that's one way to put it ...
Question is -- can celebs dress appropriately, to honor the theme and the Chinese culture, without being completely culturally insensitive and politically incorrect?
"The basic idea is the influence of Chinese aesthetics on designers, but I also wanted to convey how costumes and decorative arts crystallize centuries of cultural interchanges between the East and the West. They speak to an ongoing fascination of enigmatic objects and motifs. They are infused with fantasy and nostalgia and romance, and what often is created is a virtual China, a mixing of these anachronistic styles, which results in this pastiche. What is interesting is how complicit China has been in forming those fantasies."
We fear lots of kitschy kimonos and geisha-influenced makeup. Wonder what Kim will wear? And Kanye, for that matter!

Okay, let's clarify here ... Lady Gaga does NOT look fat and she does NOT look like she's gained weight. At least not in these shots ...
We're simply speculating that the newly-engaged pop star might be ready to procreate with her hot fiance Taylor Kinney now that the pair have purchased a beautiful Malibu mansion and settled in.
We snapped Gaga being domestic, shopping for home interior design items in Malibu. She and Taylor were spotted out at the beach earlier this week and granted, Gaga's flow-y kaftan wasn't exactly body-con, but it sure looks like something was going on under all that silk! And it makes sense that she and Kinney would want a little monster around the house. We hope!

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince William have welcomed their second child, a daughter, whose name is yet to be released. The princess arrived at 8:34 a.m. after two-and-a-half hours at St. Mary's Hospital in London.
The Palace confirmed the news on Twitter:

The baby will be fourth in line to the throne, with 21-month-old Prince George third in line and William's brother Prince Harry now fifth.

As dad Bruce Jenner is transitioning to a woman, his son, Brody Jenner, was spotted buying a bright red dress at the Malibu Country Mart on Friday. As we all know Bruce loves a good maxi dress -- so we have a feeling this fiery frock is for the Olympian. Love it!
During last Friday's 20/20 special, Bruce allowed Diane Sawyer into his glam room to show off his new-found fashion sense, highlighting a sexy black number. Perhaps this cherry red dress is for one of Bruce's gal parties?
The 65-year-old's style seems classy and simple -- much like the spaghetti-strap design Brody is carrying to his car. If the dress is for Bruce -- we love that Brody is supporting his dad 100% and we also love that if the dress is for Bruce, that he's embracing his femininity with the bold color. Be loud and proud, Bruce!

Call us crazy but we think it's a little odd that Scott Disick (who is in a relationship with Kourtney Kardashian) and 19-year-old Kendall Jenner (who is Kourt's little sister) are so cozy together. The twosome, who can't seem to get enough of each other, were spotted lunching with George Hamilton and Mohamad Hadid on Friday afternoon.
Huh? What? Yeah ... exactly.
These two seem awfully close for their big age difference -- and the fact that they aren't actually related. Maybe if Kendall wasn't a super babe and Scott wasn't a super cad -- we'd think better of this situation. But thems the facts, y'all!
Recently, we've spotted the teen hanging with the 31-year-old (whom we should add, should probably be in rehab). The deadly duo have been out shopping, taking creepy Instagram photos together and now they're dining out with the father of the Kendall's BFF Gigi Hadid. If Scott wasn't basically married to Kourtney -- we'd say these two sure made a cute couple!
We've got a few questions for the Lord -- like why aren't you hanging out with Kourtney or your THREE CHILDREN? Or why aren't you taking your girlfriend/MOTHER OF YOUR CHILDREN out for a lunch date to spice up your clearly troubled relationship?
We'd love to hear the LD's answers to those queries!
Besides looking way too chummy with Kendall, Scott zooms off in his red Ferrari with his even hotter sort-of sister in law. If this isn't a scandal in the making -- we don't know what is! And if anyone knows how to smell a scandal -- it's us!

JLaw is one sexy lady!
Jennifer Lawrence gave fans a sneak peek at her undergarments when she jetted out of LAX on Friday morning. The Hunger Games actress is en route to New York City to prep for Monday's glittering Met Gala, which she has the honor of co-chairing.
For the flight, the Oscar winner, who is dating Gwyneth Paltrow's ex-husband Chris Martin, teased her hot bod in a casual crochet top, cropped pants and a slipper-style loafer.
In September, the 24-year-old was announced as the 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit co-chair. The theme is "Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion."
We can't wait to see what fabulous ensemble she wears!

Kris Jenner usually looks perfectly put together and made up, but when we caught the momager leaving the gym in L.A. this morning, she was completely drenched in sweat from her workout. She must be trying to burn off some of the stress she's been holding in over Bruce Jenner's tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer and the backlash over her refusing to comment on the special.
Recent reports claim the Kardashian matriarch knew about her Olympian spouse's gender struggles even before they got married, and she simply chose to ignore them. "Before Kris and Bruce got married, Kris assured his ex-wives [Chrystie Crownover and Linda Thompson] that she knew about 'the issue.' She thought it was just a phase and that she could "fix" him. She knew that he struggled with gender identity. She knew he had been on hormones and that his body had changed...She thought Bruce had a little quirk and he asked her to keep it a secret, so she did," a source dished to People.
This is a PR nightmare that Kris obviously wishes would just go away!

Bruce Jenner is anything but in the clear after the fatal Malibu car crash that killed Kim Howe earlier this year. The deceased woman's stepchildren are suing the reality star in a wrongful death lawsuit, reports TMZ.
The two stepchildren are claiming the Olympian was "careless and negligent" when he crashed into Howe's Lexus which caused the car to veer into oncoming traffic where she was hit and killed by a Hummer on Feb. 7. The outlet also reported that law enforcement sources have video of the crash that proves Bruce was inattentive behind the wheel.
Interestingly enough, the outlet is also reporting that Howe's stepchildren had almost no relationship with her.
Howe herself had no children and no immediate relatives. However, her husband, who died in 2003, had two children from a previous relationship. Despite claims that the step children and Howe had no relationship, stepchildren do have legal standing to sue for wrongful death even if they are estranged from a stepparent, according to California law.
Howe's stepchildren will not inherit her property. The trust she set up leaves millions to charity and in her will it states that $55k will go to various animal charities, including, PETA, Lange Foundation, PAWS (Performing Animal Welfare Society), Doris Day Animal League and The Elephant Sanctuary of Tennessee.
The L.A. County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the fatal incident. After the investigation concludes, the file will be sent over to the L.A. County D.A. for possible prosecution, however, there are reports that it's unlikely Bruce will be prosecuted.
