She's so fancy, but you already know...

After last year's disastrous cutting edge punk party, the Costume Institute Met Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, co-chaired by Vogue's Anna Wintour, took on a more refined air this year with the "White Tie and Decorations" theme. Celebs and models alike came to the event dressed in the best of the best couture but probably left a little lighter in the pockets as tickets start at $25,000.

Before hitting the red carpet, the pretty faces and bold names strutted their stuff outside The Mark Hotel, the traditional pre-Met Gala party spot. Here's a look at what Anna, Posh and Becks, Bradley Cooper (another co-chair!) and our girl crush Lupita Nyong'o were wearing last night.

Bradley Cooper goes literal with the "White tie" theme.

Posh and Becks keep it, well, Posh and Becks style.

We heart everything about this picture. She can do no wrong.

While the tickets to the Met are out of your price range, the rooms at The Mark are "only" $695 a night for a superior queen room.

David Beckham To Create Dining and Retail Concepts for Las Vegas Sands...in China

Where: China
December 2, 2013 at 12:50 PM | by | ()

David Beckham made his name as a top footballer in his younger years but now in his retirement, he's become a man of many leisurely pursuits such as underwear modeling, cologne-making and tattoo collecting. He's also dabbling in the hotel world.

Last week, the Las Vegas Sands Corp., announced that Beckham would be assisting in the development of "dining, retail and leisure concepts" at the Sands properties in Macao and Marina Bay, Singapore. Much of the press release about the partnership is a bunch of "we're so excited" type of statements yet the details are scant on what exactly Beckham will be doing.

Our guess is that someone else is going to come up with these new concepts which will obviously have a luxury element to them for which Beckham will lend his face and body. We're thinking David Beckham Steakhouse, David Beckham Watch Shop, David Beckham Cigars, David Beckham Men's Intimates, David Beckham Noodles To Go. Er, maybe not that last one.

However, given that Becks is now the global ambassador for Chinese Football, we're sure at least one of these concepts will have to do with the sport itself. All "Bend It Like Beckham" jokes aside, we're quite curious to see what they, er, he, comes up with.

Kate Beckinsale Joins the ABH Club at Thompson Beverly Hills

Where there's a Thompson Hotel, there are bound to be celebrities. And Friday night, Kate Beckinsale was one of the privileged few to gain access to the rooftop bar, ABH, at Thompson Beverly Hills.

Apparently, the actress celebrated her 35th birthday there. That's all we got on the tipline which frustrates us a bit because we'd like to know who she was with, what she wore, what she drank and if Urkel was still hanging about.

Luckily, there are people out there who make it their job to answer these questions like the Gossip Girls:

Among those joining in on the fun were Kate's hubby Len Wiseman, along with David and Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, and Dustin Hoffman, who brought his wife Lisa Gottsegen.

The whole group was shuttled in and out by a heavy duty security team, with Dustin Hoffman's driver reportedly nearly hitting a pedestrian as their car made a quick getaway.

Good lord, Dustin! Control your men. Thank god Becks was safe.

David Beckham May Have Been the Yummiest Piece of Meat at Ramsay's London WeHo Opening

Igniting the hearts of female foodies the world over, David Beckham arrived at the official opening of Gordon Ramsay's restaurant at the London West Hollywood last night dressed like . . .  a waiter.

When we first caught a glimpse of these photos, we seriously considered forking over the massive amounts of cash and butt kissing it would take to hop a plane and get into the opening (perhaps he'd notice if we strolled in fashionably late), but our dreams were semi-crushed when we learned that Beckham was not, in fact, serving food. Apparently, he was just dressed festively for the occasion.

Inspired idea: someone should open a restaurant that requires all the waiters to wear David Beckham masks. We'd eat there every single night. Yum.

David Beckham to Open Sports Complex in Brazilian Resort

It seems David Beckham would like to do more with his career aside from posing in bulge-friendly underwear for Emporio Armani.

The upcoming Cabo São Roque resort area in Brazil has announced that Beckham will open his David Beckham World of Sport on their property.

. This professional athlete training centre, designed and planned with his full co-operation, will include world-class facilities and eight football (soccer) pitches (fields), with the ability to accommodate resort guests and visiting teams alike.

Beckham also announced that the facility will incorporate a scholarship program for Brazilian children that will actively outreach to schools in the region.

As for the resort area, it's being hailed as the newest luxury destination on the ocean with "abundant natural resources." It will feature three 4-6 star luxury hotels, residential villas and houses, along with an International Tennis Academy (paging Roger Federer) and a Golf Academy (ditto Tiger Woods.)

Aside from Beckham's school there will also be The Rubens Barrichello Driving Experience from Brazil's F1 champion Rubens Barrichello. Both Barrichello and Beckham have reportedly bought houses in the yet-to-be-built area.

Now, back to those underwear ads.

David Beckham Ditches Posh...Hotel Digs Down Under

He may have arrived via private jet to Sydney but so far British soccer superstar David Beckham has insisted that he get the same hotel digs as his LA Galaxy teammates inside the Star City Hotel & Casino downtown.

The 32-year-old had the option of the Royal Suite at Star City's hotel but will, just like every other player, take a standard room (well, his does have Harbour views).

The Royal Suite goes for about $5,230 a night while a regular room starts at around $230. And this is not the first time Becks has refused the royal treatment when staying with his team at a hotel. He famously hit up at Doubletree Hotel in Washington D.C. rather than request more...ahem...Posh digs.

While the LA Galaxy is set to play the Sydney football club in a friendly match Tuesday night, Becks and the team should have plenty to do in their downtime. The Star City Hotel is part of a larger entertainment venue that includes a casino, 7 restaurants, 8 bars, and several theaters with live shows.

Posh Spice's Diva Behavior at Bacara Resort

Last weekend, Posh Spice continued to explore Southern California by heading up to the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara.

IDLYITW has got some pics of Becks' wifey hanging by the pool but we have actually heard a first-hand account of her diva-behavior there.

According to our sources, Posh had bodyguards standing in front of her lounge chair, thus thwarting any potential "fans" from going up to her. When our source tried to walk by Posh's chair, a bodyguard demanded to know what she was trying to do before telling her to to leave.

Obviously Posh was all testy about female fans trying to accost her husband at his hotels when he's on the road. But c'mon shouldn't she be used to this by now? And what does she expect when he's posing half-naked all the time?

We are pretty sure that the amount of time we have spent glancing at pics of Becks without his shirt on is definitely longer than the amount of time we've ever seen him play soccer.

David Beckham Does D.C. in DoubleTree Style

David Beckham landed stateside last month to a lot of fan fare and we're not just talking about his wife Posh's reality show.

Nope, in Los Angeles, his new team the Galaxy threw a huge welcoming event, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes threw a 600-person party full of A-list celebs, and paparazzi has been stalking Becks on his every move. We now have learned the man prefers Coffee Bean to Starbucks.

And all this, without Becks even playing a full game. The soccer star has been sidelined with an ankle injury. Nevertheless, he's been traveling with the team and today, they are in Washington, D.C. where Becks hopes to play in tonight's gams.

Oh but if only Tom and Katie could see him now. Word has it that since he is traveling with the team and since the MLS players don't really stay in fancy hotels, Becks is staying in the DoubleTree Crystal City. A tipster from D.C. writes:

This morning on the radio someone said they met David Beckham as he came out of the Double Tree hotel in Crystal City.

Reliable Source in the Washington Post and all the other news sources are keeping tabs on him - Mortons for dinner 2 nights ago, Crystal City coffee shops, stores and cafes in Georgetown - all over the place.

Crystal City is actually not in D.C. proper but in Virginia just south of downtown D.C. Yet this DoubleTree property can't be all that bad if it has a revolving SkyDome Lounge, no?

Becks Gets Out of the Doghouse

Forget making her dinner and dropping the L bomb, she'll love you just as much if you follow David Beckham's steps to the perfect date.

First make sure you've got the $40,000 to treat her to the night out. Next, book a flight (first class, obviously) from Japan back to London, and reserve a room at the stylish Blakes Hotel. Make sure to fill the room with flowers and gifts.
Blakes won the Test of Time Award at the recent European Design Awards Conference. It's definitely somewhere posh for Posh.

"David went all out to impress his wife," a close friend told the Daily Mirror. "He is an incurable romantic and when he wants to lay on the charm he doesn't do it by halves."

It's time guys stopped just copying his style, and started paying attention to the real details: Blakes Hotel, gifts, flowers, and wads of cash--that is the way to a girls heart.
