Jack Nicholson’s 70-Acre Malibu Pad Sold for $3.5m

30, 2011 11:00am

Continuing the reign of terror that is the Malibu property market, Jack Nicholson’s old Malibu beach pad, on the market most of this year for $4.25 million, has now sold for $3.5 million.

Hopefully that means he’ll have to go out and do a bunch of really fantastic film projects??? Acch, who are we kidding. The three-time Oscar-winner’s Malibu property had a main house built in 1966 (2,313 sq.ft., 3BR/2BA with maid’s living quarters), a caretaker’s cottage, tennis court, swimming pool, putting green, mountain and ocean views, and sits on 70 acres. Yep, SEVENTY freakin’ acres zoned for equestrian use. Of course, the actor is also on record as owning a sizable property in Beverly Hills, another in the Cahuenga Pass, a few in Aspen, and another beach retreat in Hawaii.

Judy Garland’s Old Malibu Home Sold for $1.475m

29, 2011 4:18pm

When Judy Garland was married to Vincente Minelli, this is where she lived: on the beach, on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, in a modest 1,300 sq.ft. 3BR/2BA home overlooking the ocean on Las Tunas Beach. Bought by the couple late in 1947, the new owners are Disney's music and soundtracks president Mitchell Leib and wife, Stacy. While the asking price was $1.595m, the property was pegged as needing some fixing, not that the pics suggest that it would need it. Check out the gallery below.

‘Private Practice’s’ Kate Walsh’s House For Sale (again)

27, 2011 3:48pm

The Los Feliz home of T.V. Doctor Kate Walsh ("Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice") is back on the market (again) for $3,995,000. The actress had the property listed for $4.295 million in May 2010, and the home was previously listed at the current asking price of $3.995 million in March 2010. Walsh and then hubby Alex Young bought the Spanish-style four-bedroom property for $4.75m in 2007. Replete with a media room, gym, wine room, swimming pool and pool house, you can check out plenty of pretty pics of the place below.

Ex-’American Idol’ Judge Kara DioGuardi Puts Home on Market for $10m

27, 2011 1:29pm

Putting her family home on the market for a cool $10 million, music producer/songstress Kara DioGuardi (and builder/hubby Mike McCuddy) is looking to triple the $3.5m paid for the property back in 2004. A couple of weeks ago, DioGuardi had put the property on the rental market at $45,000 per month.

The songwriter has written tunes for Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ashlee Simpson, Celine Dion, Faith Hill, THe Jonas Brothers, Pink, Carrie Underwood and Meat Loaf, and is currently starring as “Roxie” in “Chicago” on Broadway. DioGuardi is no doubt spending a little more time East Coast at the moment, and the 7,600 sq.ft., 5BR/6.5BA house (with separate studio) situated on a 3.5 acre spread in Studio City is more than a little hard to pack for the cross-country trip.

According to various reports, DioGuardi still owns a home in the Hollywood Hills that was listed and de-listed from the market last year, as well as property in Prospect Harbor, Maine (where she met her hubby).’s TEN BEST DRESSED from LONDON FASHION WEEK (Pippa! Kate Moss! Sienna! Jagger!)

23, 2011 9:54am

By Elizabeth Mitchell

London Fashion Week may have just wrapped yesterday and New York the week before, but that doesn’t mean the fashion frenzy is over…not yet anyway. Before we head off to all the posh parties of Paris and Milan and take in the couture shows, let’s have a look at the chic celebrities spotted across the pond.

From sophisticated socialites and stylish models to Hollywood A-listers, here’s a list of’s Top Ten Picks for Best Dressed of London Fashion Week:

10. Style icon Pippa Middleton turned heads at the Temperley London Spring/Summer 2012 show on Monday in a black and cream fan dress by the designer. Accessorizing with a little black clutch and suede booties, Pippa looked the image of modern royalty.

9. Twilight” star (and typical tomboy) Kristen Stewart traded in her skinny jeans and Converse for a more glam ensemble at the Mulberry Spring 2012 Presentation on Monday. Rocking a printed Mulberry mini and black booties, Kristen took a front row seat next to none other than —you guessed it — style legend Kate Moss.

8. British Fashion Council Cultural Ambassador, model and blogger, it’s no wonder Laura Bailey showed up to the Topshop Unique Spring/Summer 12 show looking absolutely fabulously awesome. From the hair to the makeup to the clothes, we’re totally digging this look, aren’t you?

7. Known for her impeccable taste (in clothes) and cutting edge style, British beauty Sienna Miller rocked out in black leather trousers and matching wedge booties at the Burberry Spring/Summer 2012 show on Monday.

6. The always stylish and list-worthy Olivia Palermo stepped out in a long black maxi skirt with sky high pumps (just the thing for cobblestone streets) and a tailored white blazer to attend the Jaeger London Spring/Summer 2012 show on Sunday. We love the bright pop of color added by her clutch.

5. Model and rising star Georgia May Jagger stole the spotlight in a stunning strapless black and white gown at the Moet & Chandon Etoile Award Ceremony at the Park Lane Hotel on Monday. Soft waves and a bold red lip finish off her sophisticated, high fashion look.

4. Celebrity stylist turned fashion designer Rachel Zoe showed up at the Burberry Spring/Summer 12 Presentation making a may-jor statement. Donning a thick wool, plaid and fur-trimmed coat, if anyone can pull off this look, it’s definitely her! Then again, wearing plaid to a Burberry show is pretty much always a good idea.

3. British supermodel Kate Moss was a vision in white at the Moet & Chandon Etoile Award Ceremony on Monday. Channeling old Hollywood glamour, Kate opted for red lips, a floor length white gown and long, lavish fur jacket. Faux fur, we hope, yes?

2. Another stylish sighting at Burberry Spring/Summer 12 was international model Poppy Delevigne, spotted in this chic, navy blue wool fitted dress made by the designer. If we didn’t know better, we would have thought Poppy was walking the show, not just sitting front row!

1. Adorned in an all white gown with a plunging neckline and high slit, Victoria’s Secret model and “Transformers” actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was definitely the belle of the sparkling Moet & Chandon Etoile Awards Ceremony.
