Angelina Jolie is losing her grip on the red carpet, a celebrity stylist has said.

British fashion expert and celebrity stylist Kirsty Drury has worked with stars including Kylie Minogue and Claudia Schiffer and has always admired Angelina's bold style choices but in the recent years, she believes the 35-year-old actress has gone from one of the sexiest women on the red carpet, to one of the most boring.

Kirsty desperately wants to give the Salt actress a makeover saying that she would ban dull colours and shapeless dresses from the beauty's wardrobe forever, reports Stuff.co.nz.

'I think she is absolutely beautiful, she's gorgeous, with an amazing figure that is so toned, but she tends to wear these drab, coloured dresses,' Kirsty said.

'I appreciate she doesn't want to show off her body as much because she's had babies but I still think she could have a bit more impact, a bit more style. I would get her out of the grey, the beige, the swampy colours and the swampy fabrics and inject a bit more life and energy into her clothes,' she added.

Sandra Bullock has been spotted with Jesse James for the first time after their split.

The Oscar-winning actress was photographed entering her estranged husband's West Coast Choppers shop in Long Beach in California with ex-husband by her side, reports RadarOnline.

The divorce between The Blind Side star and her motorcycle entrepreneur husband became final at the end of June.

The actress abruptly split with James, 41, in March after lurid revelations of his infidelity surfaced.

Although their marriage has ended, Bullock, 46, has said she is still committed to her ex's three children. Bullock adopted a son, Louis Bardo, earlier this year.

'I don't really know how our paths will intersect in the future, but the father I have known Jesse to be with all the kids is one that I hope Louis can experience one day, no matter how Jesse and I go on with our lives,' News.com.au quoted her as telling Britain's Hello! magazine in May.

An attorney for James confirmed in June that his client was moving to Austin, Texas, where Bullock also owns a home.

R 'n' B singer Fantasia Barrino has been released from hospital following her suicide attempt.

Barrino, 26, had attempted suicide after rumours surfaced that she had made a sex tape with a married man, Antwaun Cook, causing his wife, Paula, to file for divorce.

'She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans,' Us magazine quoted her manager Brian Dickens as saying.

'She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration,' he added.

Prior to the incident, Dickens had said that the former American Idol winner is 'certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of Cook's marriage.'

US museum trying to save Gone With The Wind gowns

A US museum has launched an appeal to raise funds to restore five dresses worn by Vivien Leigh in the 1939 Oscar-winning film Gone With The Wind.

The appeal, launched by the Harry Ransom Center in Texas, hopes to raise 30,000 dollars to exhibit the gowns as a mark to the movie's 75th anniversary in 2014.

'The costumes are in fragile condition and cannot currently be exhibited,' the BBC quoted the centre as saying in a statement.

The Ransom Center acquired the costumes in the mid-1980s as part of the collection of Gone With The Wind producer David Selznick, and it also hopes to loan the dresses to other museums around the world.

'There are areas where the fabric has been worn through, fragile seams and other problems,' Jill Morena, the centre's collection assistant for costumes and personal effects, said.

'These dresses have been under a lot of stress. Film costumes weren't meant to last, they are only meant to last through the duration of filming,' Morena stated.

The dresses have already been through decades of travelling displays in theatres and had been on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The collection includes a burgundy ball gown that Scarlett O'Hara wore to Ashley Wilkes' birthday party, the wedding dress in which she married Charles Hamilton, a blue velvet peignoir and a green velvet dressing gown.

It also includes the green velvet dress that a struggling O'Hara made from some curtains before she went to ask Rhett Butler for money.

The centre plans to use the funds to restore the dresses, buy protective housing to ship them to other institutions and custom-fitted mannequins that will allow them to be properly displayed for the 2014 exhibit.

'Conservation work and custom supports for storage and display are essential components in ensuring that the Gone With The Wind costumes can be enjoyed for years to come,' Morena added.
