From heirloom tiaras to bargain bling! Kate Middleton once again proves she's the perfect people's royal. Last night at the royal screening for "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," the Duchess of Cambridge, 31, accessorized her chic and simple winter white Roland Mouret gown (that she first wore for a private dinner at Claridges in May 2012!) with a shimmering statement necklace that looked like rows upon rows of diamonds. And since Middleton set the world on fire just this week when she stepped out in a tiara once belonging to Queen Elizabeth II, no one would have been surprised if the bauble was yet another piece from the royal collection of jewels. But, ever-the down-to-earth Duchess, her neck adornment gained a new level of impressiveness when it was revealed to be a $35.90 necklace from Zara! [Related: Kate Middleton Dress Déjà Vu] Like the affordable outfits she's worn in the past (who can forget the $76 Topshop polka dot number she sported while touring Warner Bros. studio in Leavesden, England, this April, or the $79 fuchsia maternity dress by Seraphine she posed for Prince George's first photos in?), the necklace completely sold out on the retailer's website within hours of Middleton giving it her blessing. But style connoisseurs, don't despair. There have been reissues of many of the items the fashion maven has sported in the past. The jewelry she's worn from Links of London (Topaz Hope Egg earrings for her engagement photos and Effervescence Stiletto earrings for the Ark Gala) have been restocked multiple times online, Aquatalia rereleased its Rhumba boots after she wore them, and the Reiss "Nannette" dress she wore for her engagement portraits was brought back, only to sell out again … and again. Hopefully, Zara will follow suit since the world can't wait to look like Kate!

Gywneth Paltrow and her man, Chris Martin, 36, have defied pestering breakup rumors and Hollywood marriage odds to mark their 10-year wedding anniversary on Friday, December 6. A decade ago, the actress, 41, and the Coldplay frontman said "I do" in front of family and friends in Santa Barbara, California. Despite they're steadfastness, the longtime pair, who are parents to daughter Apple, 9, and son Moses, 7, have never been one to flaunt their romance, choosing not to walk red carpets together. [Related: The Five Most Outrageously Expensive Gifts in Gwyneth's GOOP Holiday Guide] This public shyness, the couple's jet-set lifestyle (they own homes in London, L.A. , NYC, and the Hamptons), and busy professional schedules have meant they're rarely seen together and, thus, their relationship has been plagued by split rumors. Most recently, reports alleged that the Oscar-winning actress was romantically involved with supermodel Elle Macpherson's billionaire husband Jeff Soffer, though her representatives expressly denied the claims. Paltrow was very candid during an interview with Refinery29 while promoting her film, "Thanks For Asking," which explores sex addiction, earlier this year. "No couple is the same, and as such, every couple takes on different challenges. I would like to think that I would be forgiving and/or forgiven," she said when sharing her thoughts on affairs. However, by reaching this milestone the couple seems to be handling the ups and downs of marriage just fine. No word on whether Martin went the traditional tin/aluminum route for his anniversary gift to Gwynnie, or if he decided to go with the modern-day decade tradition of diamonds. Which gift material would you prefer?

As usual, Kim Kardashian has been the talk of the Internet all week. But this time, it's not for a headline she tried to make herself. The reality star is the subject of a Warhol painting, though not created by Andy. Her fiancé, Kanye West, 36, supposedly commissioned it for $30,000, only maybe he didn't. Now Kardashian, 33, might be denying ever having heard of the artist at all, and Monica Warhol says its because the portrait was meant to be a surprise. So, what's really going on? Here's what we know: Monica Warhol, who claims to be a "distant cousin" of famed artist Andy Warhol (her grandfather and Andy's dad were brothers she says), is a Tucson, Arizona-based artist who creates works in the same vein as the Pop Art purveyor. According to her website, she is a mother of six, engaged, and (surprise!) developing a reality show with Concussions Productions about her art and home life. Earlier this week, the artist — whose creative process involves layering both hand drawn and Photoshopped photographs onto silk-screens resulting in renditions of famous faces that are strikingly similar to Andy's original works — told Page Six that West hired her to make the fluorescent pink, orange, blue, and red likeness of his love (which she debuted in In Touch magazine) for $30,000.

Attention world: John Mayer's in love, and he wants us all to know it! Again. The 36-year-old singer and his current lady love, Katy Perry, 29, posed for portraits in promotion of their single "Who You Love," featured on Mayer's current "Paradise Valley” album – but the intensely intimate shots could also provide as the couple's official "together 4eva" statement (or, um, engagement photos, if the rumors are true). However, this is hardly the first time Mayer has made a grand proclamation about the stability of his romantic relationships. The only hitch? Usually those public displays of affection are followed by a breakup. [Related: 5 Reasons Katy Perry Loves John Mayer] Here's a look at John's love 'em and leave 'em history.

Devon Sawa has quite a big reason to be excited for 2013 to come to a close! The "Nikita" actor, 35, and his wife, Dawni Sahanovitch, are expecting their first child together.
And the the baby boy is due the first week of January, the actor's rep confirms to omg!
Sawa, who came to fame in the '90s as a teen heartthrob in movies like "Casper" and Now & Then," isn't one for grand proclamations — he didn't even announce his wedding, which took place in May! — and has been addressing the incoming bundle of joy very nonchalantly on his Twitter page by documenting the nursery prep.
Just over the weekend, the Canadian-born actor, who recently received his U.S. citizenship, posted a photo of a fully-assembled baby crib along with the caption, "Arrived today, rooms almost done."

O Tannenbaum, indeed!
Thanks to a very large purchase at a local Christmas tree lot, there's no doubt that it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Klum household.
Heidi Klum, three of her four children — Leni, 9, Henry, 8, and Johan, 7, and Lou, 4 — plus the supermodel's boyfriend, Martin Kristen, capped off the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in the American tradition of … you guessed it … prepping for the holidays.
The "America's Got Talent" judge, 40, and her brood picked up not one, but six Christmas trees during their visit to Mr. Greentrees in West Hollywood, California. Mr. Greentrees is a favorite of celebs like Christina Aguilera, Mark Wahlberg, and Tori Spelling, who tend to decorate for the holidays from the same supplier who provides them with their Halloween decorations. (Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch actually resides in the same location during October.)

Thanksgiving brings families together! Even famous ones.
Mila Kunisstopped by a local L.A. grocery store for some pre-turkey day supplies on Tuesday, and she had a shopping companion — none other than her beau, Ashton Kutcher's mom, Diane!

The 30-year-old actress was dressed down in a gray knit sweater, jeans, and black furry boots as she carried a paper sack, while Mrs. Kutcher — in a black-and-white checkered shirt and leggings — pushed the brunt of the supplies in an overflowing shopping cart. But, when they made it to the car, Kunis did her fair share, helping Diane load all of the groceries — which included greens, tinfoil, disposable baking tins, Pepsi, and beer — before the pair headed out.

Chrissy Teigen's 28th birthday was straight out of a fantasy … a Nintendo fantasy to be exact!
The model and her singer hubby, John Legend, rang in Teigen's 28th year with an intimate Super Mario-themed party.
Taking the theme rather seriously, Legend, 34, and his lady showed up for the soiree dressed in head-to-toe Super Mario and Princess Peach costumes — with the model tweeting"AHERE WE GO #nintendobirthday" while en route to the event, which was held at a space in West Hollywood, California, that was decorated to resemble the Mushroom Kingdom come to life.
When they arrived, the singer was clearly very proud of his getup (padded belly and all), making a solo entrance ahead of the birthday princess, and received his own round of applause.
But once inside, Mario John was all about making sure the birthday girl had a great time. The duo posed for photos in the Mushroom Kingdom photo booth, which was stocked with additional costumes and props for all of Teigen's guests. "Parks and Recreation" actor Ben Schwartz had a particularly good time impersonating Luigi.

We also can't help but point out that the mustache-heavy video comes — appropriately — during November, or Movember as the month has been dubbed for the 'stache-growing trend that takes over to raise funds and awarness about men's health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges. Agron is hardly the first female celeb to try sporting a little bit of upper-lip hair. Demi Lovato Instagrammed a picture of herself sporting a very '70s-looking mustache in August.
“I collect all kinds of things with mustaches,” she told Fallon, adding, “I have a diamond mustache with me at all times”! The Killers' new greatest hits album, "Direct Hits," which features "Just Another Girl," is in stores now. Check out the video's most memorable moments below!
