Kate Middleton looked chic in her perfectly fitted military jacket as she and husband Prince William made an appearance in Windsor today to present service medals to members of the Irish Guard who served in Afghanistan. Catherine accessorized with a fascinator, a bracelet with a "C" charm, and a big smile as she greeted some of the children at the event. It is the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been able to pay a visit to the regiment since Prince William was appointed colonel of the Irish Guards in February. Prince William spoke to the crowd saying, "I am proud to be your colonel. I am humbled by the thought of the sacrifices that you and your families have made and the losses that you have suffered — all in the service of our country. Along with thousands of others back home, I followed your tour in Afghanistan with a mounting sense of awe." In just a few days, the royal newlyweds will embark on their North American tour, and Kate Middleton was spotted at the salon to get her hair touched up before the big trip.
Jennifer Aniston got a tattoo of her dog Norman's name, and she showed off the brand-new ink on the inside of her foot in NYC this week. Jennifer's beloved doggie passed away earlier this year, and she honored her beloved pup with her first tattoo. In her Inside the Actors Studio interview on Thursday, Jennifer also said that Norman is her favorite word, so her four-legged friend is still very much on her mind. Jennifer's boyfriend Justin Theroux has his own share of ink, so perhaps his body art was also part of Jennifer's inspiration to get her own.
Brad Pitt waved to a pair of pint-sized fans on the set of World War Z in Malta today. He was once again decked out in his now-familiar shirt and scarf, which we also saw his body double wearing while shooting a particularly gruesome zombie scene earlier in the week. The film may be dark, but the set is still a family-friendly spot and Brad brought Pax for a visit one day while Angelina stopped by with Shiloh and Zahara on another sunny afternoon. While Brad is hard at work on his new project, we also got a glimpse of Angelina's latest venture as well. Louis Vuitton released a teaser video of Angelina Jolie in Cambodia, giving us a peek at her full ad campaign, which will be out soon.
