Lily-Rose has thus far largely stayed out of the glare of the celebrity spotlight, but we are wondering if that is all about to change - she's got all the markings of the next Bright Young Thing. Watch out Cara, Gigi and Kendall: You could soon be in for some stiff but oh-so-chic competition.

  • Russell Crowe prank called by Michael Jackson

    Russell Crowe used to get prank called by Michael Jackson. The Noah actor revealed the King of Pop repeatedly contacted him with the nuisance calls "for two or three f***ing years" before his death in June 2009, after he discovered the fake name he used to check in to hotels, despite the fact they had never met in person. The Beat It hitmaker tragically died of cardiac arrest at the age of 50, but Russell insisted the musician's sense of humour was still puerile towards the end of his life, when he would make the ridiculous jokes during the phone calls, even though it irritated the Hollywood star.

Hayley says she’ll never know whether she and Arthur could have made a connection but she also isn’t sure if that initial spark of attraction was there between them.

    Family members of a Vermont couple killed in a car crash were unflinching during a sentencing hearing Wednesday as they poured out their anger toward a New Hampshire man who admitted causing the wreck, which also killed their unborn fetus. Prosecutors have said Robert Dellinger told investigators he was trying to kill himself in December 2013 when he drove his pickup truck across an Interstate 89 median and smashed into an SUV carrying 24-year-old Amanda Murphy, who was 8 months pregnant, and her fiance, 29-year-old Jason Timmons.

  • Is Russia Greece's last hope of survival?

    As Greece's reserves run low and its relations with the rest of Europe look increasingly strained, Russia is starting to look like it might be the country's last hope for financial survival. A meeting between Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled for April 8 and speculation is mounting that an offer of aid from Russia could be back on the table. Russia has said it was willing to offer Greece money before but Greece has so far stuck with aid from its fellow euro zone countries and the International Monetary Fund -- but that was before the country had badly burned its bridges and flirted with defaulting on its debt.

  • Ko's consistency a major topic at Mission Hills

The richly talented New Zealander has landed six LPGA titles and her astonishingly consistent game has helped her shoot under par for 28 consecutive rounds, one shy one of the record set by former world number one Annika Sorenstam in 2004. "I got to play with her last week, and it's just incredible," reigning champion Lexi Thompson told reporters at Mission Hills Country Club on Tuesday while preparing for the first women's major of the season.
