Hollywood’s A-list can’t seem to get enough of Stella McCartney’s funky spring collection.
At Thursday’s Swarovski Crystallized Unsigned Model Search Event in London, Helena Christensen (right) added intrigue to a patterned shift with striped, blue tights and a neon-green purse. Previous supporters of the unusual frocks include Charlize Theron, who selected a one-shouldered mini for the L.A. premiere of Young Adult, Gwyneth Paltrow, who celebrated Coach’s 70th anniversary in a one-sleeved version and Nicole Kidman, who sported a burgundy column at the Country Music Awards.
“It’s a celebration of energy, freshness, and fitness,” McCartney told Style.com of the hard-to-pull-off collection.

Kristen Stewart teamed up with her Snow White and the Huntsman costars Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron for a photo shoot in LA today. Kristen arrived in a casual hoodie and later changed into a plaid shirt to pose with her leading man, Chris. The trio wrapped the film just before the holidays and since then they've all kept busy with new projects and well-deserved vacations.
Earlier this month it was announced that Kristen will be the new face of Balenciaga perfumewhile Charlize scored the February cover of W magazine. Meanwhile, Chris and his wife Elsa Patakay announced they're expecting their first child later this year and also vacationed off the coast of St. Barts with Matt Damon. Chris and Matt let loose during their stay in the Caribbean, and even partied with George Clooney's ex Lisa Snowdon. Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters June 1 and we can look forward to seeing a lot more of Chris, Kristen, and Charlize in the upcoming months.
Over the weekend, Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, celebrated pal Lisa Snowdon's 40th birthdayin London, and now we've got exciting images from inside the bash. Matt and Luciana sipped drinks, danced, and chatted with friends Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, who recently joined them for a sunny vacation. The foursome met up with a group on a mega yacht off the coast of St. Barts earlier this month, and they were spotted riding down a massive slide, swimming, and making a splash in the water. Elsa and Chris are expecting their first child together, and Elsa's baby bump was on display in tiny bikinis throughout the trip.

So where does the myth of Prometheus, the dude who stole fire from the gods, fit into the equation? Internet whispers suggest it’s the science of terraforming (i.e. the modification of a planet to replicate earth) that’s fire equivalent here, under the watch of Theron’s Meredith Vickers, the representative of our old friends Weyland-Yutani. “That’s one of the familar things from the Alien movies – there are corporate interests at play”, says writer Damon Lindelof who goes on to insist that Theron won’t be as “slimy” as Paul Reiser’s treacherous Burke in Aliens. “She’s not the fast-talking, snake-oil face of the company,” the Lost man continues. “As we were developing the script, she had some really cool ideas that made it not the suit you’re used to.”

The Lorax’s big-screen arrival is a big deal to teacher Ted Wells’s fourth-grade class. Mr. Wells, of Brookline, Massachusetts’s Park School, has a policy of teaching his students lessons in civic action and social responsibility, messages dear to the bushy-browed Lorax.
But when “a class of 14 caring kids who want to help the planet” viewed early trailers for Lorax the movie, the students were disappointed. Where, they asked, was the Lorax’s message of saving trees and wildlife? The kids felt that something needed to be done.
Mr. Wells agreed, and a petition campaign was born. The class logged onto Change.org and collected 57,239 signatures on a letter headed “Universal Pictures: Let the Lorax Speak for the Trees.”
Universal responded to the kids’ concerns. The official Lorax movie website was updated on January 26 to prompt visitors to Go Green! A homepage link opens to the Lorax Project, a joint endeavor by Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Conservation International and Random House to “engage individuals of all ages to do their part to conserve the places and species that are critical to the future of our planet.”
“By setting up these projects,” said teacher Wells, “I’m acting out hope.”
Universal’s Kori Bernards agrees. She tells TakePart, “We’re incredibly impressed with what Mr. Wells has done with his students to raise attention to an important issue and also to teach them about the power of civic action.”
