Harper's Bazaar UK points out that a new Dior ad featuring Natalie Portman has dropped. In it, the actress shows off her flawless complexion for the Diorskin Forever campaign. Portman, also the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume, presumably severed ties with the fashion house and its cosmetics line back in March, after its head designer John Galliano's "I love Hitler" rant surfaced. At the time, she told the New York Times, "I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano's comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way." The newspaper added, "it was not known how Ms. Portman's contract with Dior might be affected" -- making it all the more interesting that this new image was released. Does Portman know about this? Is it her last ad for Dior? When was it shot? So many questions and so few answers. - The Huffington Post

Michael Kors and his longtime partner, Lance LePere, are finally tying the knot. They've known each other since 1990, when LePere joined the designer's company as an intern and live in the West Village. They were spotted by Life & Style at the city clerk's office in Manhattan on Wednesday. A rep for the "Project Runway" judge confirmed the couple had received their license. Kors told us in a statement, "Lance and I are very excited to finally be able to have the opportunity to marry in our home state after many years together. We have no plans for a major party, but we will be getting married privately." - NY Post

Put up your ears and step out of the suit. Idaho police have told a 34-year-old man to stop wearing a bunny suit in public because it has frightened the neighbors' kids. One woman called cops after she said she spotted William Falkingham dressed in the plush costume, peeking at her son from behind a tree and pointing his finger like a gun. When cops questioned other neighbors in Idaho Falls, they found several "who expressed that they were greatly disturbed by Falkingham and his bunny suit," a police report stated. Some neighbors said Falkingham sometimes wears a tutu with the suit. Falkingham told cops that "he enjoys wearing the suit," but he understood his neighbors' concerns. At least one neighbor, Deborah Colson, has hopped to Falkingham's defense. "He's got the bunny outfit, a cowboy suit and a ballerina dress but you don't see him except in his backyard," she said. "He's never done anything wrong but wear his little suits in the background," she said. "He's got a strange lifestyle at home but we all do weird things at home. It makes me so sad." - Daily News
