TV chef dazzles in white tights

TV chef dazzles in white tights

Celebrity chef Gizzi Erskine posed on the red carpet, wearing her usual monochrome look, for the screening of Svengali on Tuesday.

The TV personality opted for a chic black shift dress with a white heart embossed over the chest area of the dress with a gold-button down front.

Her monochrome dress was aptly teamed with white tights and black flat pumps - but she livened up her outfit with a red lip shaped clutch bag.

She elegantly stood for photographers with one hand on her hip and her hair scraped back into a back-combed beehive style before the screening began.

Producer Jonny Owen and stars Vicky McClure, Natasha O'Keeffe and Michael Smiley also attended the Shoreditch event.

Stars go head to head at boxing

Stars go head to head at boxing

A handful of celebrity fitness fanatics supported David Haye as he launched his new gym and boxing training sessions earlier this week.

TV personality Lizzie Cundy, Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews and The Only Way Is Essex's Elliott Wright were a few of the celebrities who attended.

They did a little more than just support David in his latest quest though.

They came prepared in sports clothing, including their sports socks and trainers, ready for a boxing workout.

However, Spencer had taken it a step further by having pre-organised a head to head in the boxing ring with none other than David Haye himself.

Safe to say that David did not meet his match with Spencer - but the opening proved fun for all involved.

Jaden wears multitude of colours

Jaden wears multitude of colours

Jaden Smith is making a name for himself for his fashion choices as he is often seen wearing unusual outfits.

And he didn't disappoint at the premiere of Divergent in Los Angeles this week either.

His edgy look rivalled outfits that his dad, Will Smith, wore in episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

He wore a collection of multicoloured items, including a bright hat, red socks and a long multicoloured tunic.

However, he muted the brightness by teaming the eye-catching items with his trademark black skinny jeans, black trainers and a grey sports jumper over the top for a more low-key urban look.

The star, 15, looked like a pro as he posed with his thumbs up for the paparazzi.

Having been in the public eye from a young age and being best friends with Kylie Kardashian, the star must be used to having his picture taken.

Footballers pull their socks up

Footballers pull their socks up

Manchester United are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after defeating Olympiakos 3-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

The team certainly pulled their socks up to beat the Greek team after a dismal first round that they lost 2-0.

Sporting their home strip, consisting of a red shirt, white shorts and white football socks they became victorious over Olympiakos thanks to a Robin van Persie hat-trick.

Before the match it was very much up in the air whether they would make it through after a recent spell of poor performances, with many doubting manager David Moyes' strategy.

After the 3-0 win, however, spirits have been lifted within both the team and fans alike. "The way the players responded after Sunday's defeat (was most pleasing)," Moyes said.

"I did say to them on Monday morning that we'd have to win 3-0 and give the crowd something back. The crowds have been incredible. They deserved it. They deserved a good night because we've not given them many good nights this season."
