    Thursday’s Top Celebrity Roundup

    Hi VIPs! We’re fast approaching the end of the week and the weekend will be here before we know it. It’s been a busy week in terms of celebrity gossip with lots of Christmassy type events, so ice rinks and grottos around the UK should be open this weekend. Ho, ho, ho! We love this time of year!

    Here’s a look at what the gorgeous celebs have been up to:

    Duchess of Cambridge visits Place 2 Be charity in London


    Kate’s out and about looking hot again, Just a shame about her fringe, we think. She doesn’t need to cover her pretty face.

    Millie Mackintosh at the Claridge’s Christmas lights switch on

    Nice boots!

    Donna Air at the Claridge’s Christmas lights switch on

    Why does she always go out solo? What’s happened to her boyfriend James Middleton?

    VIP Workout: Paola’s Body Barre

    On a Saturday morning at 9am, Paola’s Body Barre class is completely full. This isn’t even the first class of the morning. Paola had been doing something to another class before I arrived, which left them revitalised and chatty. There were people walking out of her Fulham studio looking like they had the winning lottery tickets / snogged David Beckham / been told that chocolate was calorie free.

    Naively, I assumed this meant the class would be simple. I’ve been to Barry’s Bootcamp before and nobody speaks before the class as they want to conserve their breath. With the gorgeous studio, which feels feminine and homely, and the happy class who didn’t look like they were about to suffer I thought that I would point my toes and stretch and  then get to the Kings Road for when the shops open.

    Paola's Body Barre - studio shoot

    I think it was five minutes before I realised the class I had signed up for was called Paola’s Body Barre BURN. With lunges, jumps and side steps, your heart rate rises before you know it. Although, perhaps the cardio is the easy part as I soon found myself stretching muscles that I didn’t know existed. It was my lungs that started burning first, but this was nothing compared to the burn I felt in my thighs, followed by my bottom and abs.

    The class is divided into three parts. After a warm-up on the mat, the class moves to the bar where we used a variety of weights and balls to isolate and work muscles. The final section is all for the abs, which is ideal if, like me, you need to get into a bikini for a holiday anytime soon.

    I can guarantee that you won’t get a workout like this anywhere else as it’s not a traditional barre class – it’s a barre class with extras. The founder Paola di Lanza is a dynamic pilates expert and her classes have elements of this and of core fitness movements as well as the barre work. This reaches more muscles and improves strength as well as flexibility. The muscles you need to walk tall and elegant, the muscles you need to stay stable when you run and those troublesome bingo wings – they all get targeted.

    If you don’t believe my word for it then the list of celebrities and VIPs that work out at Paola’s Body Barre are endless  – Amber Le Bon, Millie Mackintosh, Madeline Shaw, Zara Martin and Lilah Parsons. All the gorgeous bodies I see so regularly on the red carpet were sculpted at PBB. Next time I see these people I’ll look at them with new admiration as I know how hard the workout is.

    Will I be going back? Absolutely – I got a 10 class pack after the class. Here’s me smiling afterwards with Paola herself.


    Visit PaoloasBodyBarre.com for more details about the trainers and to purchase class packs;. The more you buy, the better value it becomes.

  • Celebrity Fashion Roundup

    Hi VIPS! London Fashion Week is starting tomorrow, which means it’s probably about time the LLAVIP team start planning what we’re going to wear. We’ll be at some of the shows, taking photos and reporting back on what’s going to be hot next season.

    But what should we be wearing right now? Let’s look at some of the celebs for inspiration.

    Jennifer Lopez


    We’re in lust with what JLo wore to the Fashion Rocks gig. In fact, we think Jen dresses better in her 40s than she did in her 20s. What do you think?

    Rita Ora


    For some reason, Rita looked like she’d forgotten to get dressed at the same Fashion Rocks event. And she clearly hadn’t bothered to put much effort into her hair either. Did her dressing room burn down before stage time or something? What was she thinking?

    Millie Mackintosh


    The former Made In Chelsea star launched her own clothing line yesterday. You can check it out now on Millie’s website.

    Binky Felstead


    Hot on Millie’s heels, the current Made in Chelsea star has a new range of clothes out for online retailer Lipstick Boutique. We love Binky’s boho style and the collection is based around that with items like the gorgeous kimono above. Check it out at Lipstick Boutique now!

    Lauren Pope


    At first glance I thought this was a glam LA star like Lauren Conrad. Pope’s got a lot more classy (and maybe had her cheeks done?) If you like the look as much as we do you can shop it on the In The Style website.

    I think we’re fashion week ready now! Watch this space for all our updates and follow us on Twitter @livelikeavip for all the most recent news.

  • Tuesday’s Hot Celebrity Gossip

    Good morning VIPs! It’s the last week of July, which is kind of scary, but they do say that time flies when you’re having fun. We always try to have fun at the Live Like a VIP offices and we think that if you’re not having fun then it’s time to do something different.

    So with that mini-lecture out the way, let’s look at a few fun things coming up.

    Firstly, Amelle Berrabah from The Sugababes is one of the celebrities to take part in new BBC show Tumble. It’s like Strictly Come Dancing but with gymnastics instead of dancing. It will be on from 9 August.


    Made In Chelsea will be back on our TV screens next month. There’s a new twist. The next season will be set in New York. Totes amazing!


    Lily Allen has slimmed down and she revealed it’s not through anything fancy, she still eats potato chips. I guess it’s the classic tale of calories in vs calories out. You can eat up to 2000 calories a day if you’re a woman and crisps are only 150 cals, so they’re not that bad for you. That’s what we think anyway!


    Talking of crisps, Millie Mackintosh and her husband Professor Green attended the launch of Walkers Crisps new flavours on Monday night. They’ve been married nearly a year now and look just as loved up as ever. I wonder what their secret is?


    Finally, did you watch the documentary about Tulisa from NDubz about her coccaine deal trial? It documents the highs and lows of showbiz and it’s definitely worth a watch if you’d like to know what goes on behind the scenes of celebrity life. Catch it on BBC iplayer.


    Tweet us what you think – @livelikeavip

    Have a good day and have fun!
