Hollywood's most influential ladies came out for Hil!
Cameron Diaz and Eva Longoria were just a few of the celebs that attended Hillary Clinton's Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee fundraiser, and the event drew in a record breaking $2.1 million! The gathering, held at Tavern in Brentwood and co-hosted by DreamWorks Animation boss Jeffrey Katzenberg, cost a whopping $32,400 for a ticket.
While we're all for politics, what really caught our attention was the shiny ring on Cammy D's ring finger! Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the actress might be engaged to her Good Charlotte rocker boyfriend Benji Madden, and we're inclined to believe the reports based on her behavior last night. The blonde beauty made every attempt to hide her left hand in her jacket pocket as she made her way to out of the party, but we still managed to get a brief glimpse at her bauble.
Talk about a power dinner!

We think we see the beginnings of a baby bump!
Kate Middleton is back to the grind fulfilling her royal duties after weeks of suffering severe morning sickness with her second pregnancy, and true to form she looked radiant as she joined husband Prince William to greet the President of the Republic of Singapore and his wife Mary at London's Royal Garden Hotel today.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum, has been holed up in the house since it was announced the couple was expecting a sibling for Prince George, but it seems she was happy to be well enough to carry on with usual business. "I've been looking forward to getting out of the house. It's a bit colder than when we last met," she joked with the Singaporean President.
The group attended the Horse Guard Parade, before heading back to Buckingham Palace with their guests. Later this evening, the Duchess is set to attend the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 Awards Ceremony without her husband.
The Palace announced yesterday that the next royal baby is due in April 2015, and we're hoping they have a little girl this time around!

Shia LaBeouf is seriously NO BULLSH*T. He may have been bullsh*t before, but he isn't now ... and he's doing lots and lots of press to prove it.
The actor spoke with film god Elvis Mitchell for Interview
magazine and Elvis got the notorious bad ass to actually open up a little ... starting by having Shia admit he's been "running" from himself his whole life and that he's been "going through an existential crisis."
So that's a start ... but LaBeouf, the star of the upcoming film Fury
, with Brad Pitt, also opened up about finding God, with the help of his co-stars:
"I found God doing Fury. I became a Christian man, and not in a f***ing bullshit way - in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. I had good people around me who helped me. Brad [Pitt] was really instrumental in guiding my head through this. Brad comes from a hyper-religious, very deeply Christian, Bible Belt life, and he rejected it and moved toward an unnamed spirituality. Whereas [Fury writer-director] David [Ayers] is a full subscriber to Christianity. But these two diametrically opposed positions both lead to the same spot, and I really looked up to both men."
LaBeouf told Elvis that, despite the media's portrayal of Brad as a good-looking, but not-so-amazing actor, that they've all got it wrong:
"People don't know this about Brad: He's a very thoughtful actor. That's not a motherf***er who just shows up and does the job. He puts a lot in, so you get a lot out. He's hard on himself, very hard."
Shia also says Ben Affleck tried to help him way back in 2003 after seeing LaBeouf party too hard at a wrap party:
"'[He told me] Keep your head on straight, kid, and don't let all this get to you. He knew that I had cameras in my face and that there were expectations to perform. I think that's always been my issue. I'm prone to theatrics in my life. Ben saw that I turned reality up to 11. I was a wild man at that wrap party. Ben saw that and was trying to curb it before it became an issue. He was unsuccessful."
But perhaps the craziest
bit of info Elvis pulled out of Shia, was some dirt on the actor's dad. Read this quote and ask yourself if Shia doesn't seem to be implying his dad is his dealer ...
"The only time my dad will ever talk to me is when I need him at work. He knows to pick up the Skype phone call, and he knows what I'm looking for. It's not to say 'Hey, Dad.' We manipulate each other. We service each other. I use him when I go to work. It's not a real conversation; it's just an excuse to rev up. He's the marionette puppeteer."
Still, Shia says he's just focused on getting his life on track and staying straight: "I'm trying to find a way to have some control over my actions, my behavior, my ideas, my thoughts, my path in life. But it's very new for me."

Blake Lively and hubby Ryan Reynolds have got that lovin' feelin'!
A pregnant Blake showed off her growing baby bump at the Gabrielle's Angel Ball in New York, on Monday night, wearing a tight, pale yellow dress with plunging, jeweled neckline -- highlighting her awesome pregnancy cleavage and her adorable belly.
The couple celebrated their two-year anniversary just last month -- so it seems the pair are wasting little time getting a start on the big family they've both said they want.
Ryan recently told Canada's eTalk
what he's thinking of for baby names: "On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names. I don't want a name that's anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y. So I'm going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds…that's if it's a girl." When asked what he'd name a boy -- "Bruce Jenner," the actor laughed.
We can't WAIT
to hear what they really choose ... and to see what this child, with amazing genes, will look like!

Rihanna put on her best household cleaning gloves for dinner out in NYC, on Monday night. Kidding -- we're sure they're super-expensive leather gloves, straight off the runway ... but we're not fans.
And she kinda forgot her pants, right?
Still, we love us some RiRi even though girlfriend didn't exactly hit it outta the ballpark with this look. In addition to the dishwashing gloves, she wore a black swing coat with tights, black-and-white striped pumps and round, black-framed glasses, a la Carrie Donovan. At least her weave was ON POINT!

We hate to say this, but Kimmy K looks much better from the side than from behind!
Kim Kardashian headed to the family office in Calabasas this morning, and North's mama looked fierce in a red pencil skirt, but her booty seemed dangerously close to splitting the zipper in the back!
The reality star was filming her E! show with stepdad Bruce Jenner, so it makes sense why she was all dolled up. The brunette beauty and the former Olympian stopped by the controversial Elizabeth Weinstock boutique, which specializes in exotic snakeskin handbags and accessories. It makes no sense to us why Kris Jenner's ex was tagging along for the trip, unless the rumors of his transitioning
into a woman are true and he was on the hunt for a great purse. After the shopping excursion, the duo grabbed a bite at The Little Door in West Hollywood.
It's nice the 64-year-old is still a good sport about being on-camera considering all the criticism he's been getting lately!

Another day, another hair color! Mercurial singer Katy Perry may have been trying to hid her head under a beanie, but we couldn't help notice her newly red tresses -- and of course we dig the punky new style!
Flanked by one big security guard, the "Dark Horse" songstress was at the LAX airport wearing a plaid minidress, tights, combat boots and a leather motorcycle jacket. That's one sexy lady!
The "Hot and Cold" singer turns 29 later this week. Last week Katy tweeted that all she wanted was her name on the marquee of a Shakey's Pizza Parlor in Los Angeles. Ask and ye shall receive, KP! On Monday morning, the pizza palace put up a "Happy Birthday, Katy Perry" sign, and then a rep said the chain restaurant was planning on changing the marquees on all their California locations for the fun-loving birthday babe. That's what we call a California girl!
Apparently Shakey's also wants to name a pizza after Katy, and throw her a bday bash. Umm can we come?!

Gwen Stefani got some quality time with her boys, hubby Gavin Rossdale and their three sons, Kingston, Zuma and baby boy Apollo. And while all her boys were out -- we of course had our eyes on baby boy Apollo. He's just so cute!
We love that the 7-month-old is dressed head-to-toe in Michael Jordan gear. Who knew Gwen was such a big basketball fan?! And who knew they made Air Jordan bibs?!
For the family outing, Gwen wore a casual pair of overalls, a white shirt and white cat eye sunglasses. Gavin donned an army green shirt and some casual black pants. Zuma and Kingston were outfitted in sporty numbers.
Why does this family always look so cool?!
