Madonna, whose horror film "Swept Away" hit a new low at the box office, is supposed to be shopping for a Broadway musical, and to prove it she is considering appearing in a variety show for a limited New York run. Whatever the case, she has been in more or less secret talks with one of her favorite choreographers, and if it all works out — and what a big if that is — she might hit town during the holidays. What she’s really supposed to be looking for is a show that can be turned into a movie. She must be kidding.
The Prince of Wales is building a second branch of "Club H" off the wine cellar of Clarence House in London for his sons William and Harry to dance in, far from the prying eyes of photographers. The original Club H is in Highgrove, the Prince’s country house where he loves to spend most of his leisure time.
The Prince, his boys and Camilla Parker Bowles will all move into the Clarence House, the former home of the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother next year with the blessings of Queen Elizabeth. Designer Robert Kime is helping Camilla redecorate the Queen Mother’s bedroom suite where she will stay. The prince will have his own suite because that’s the way it has always been. William and Harry will have their suite on the second floor. A cozy little palace for a happy little family.
Costume designer Lindy Hemming wants us to know that "Die Another Day," the newest Bond flick due Nov. 22, is a fashion extravaganza like no other. "Fendi lent us 50 pieces of couture outfits and a lot of high-fashion gowns were borrowed from Amanda Wakeley, Jenny Packham and Escada," she says.
"The best ‘borrow’ we did was persuading Donatella Versace to make a dress for Halle Berry in a style I had seen in a magazine. Tiffany lent us the jewels. Pierce Brosnan wears more Brioni than ever before. The shirts he wears are from Turnbull and Asser and his shoes are from Church. La Perla created Halle’s bikinis."
