Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin attended the iHeartRadio Music Festival, and managed to hang without being photographed together—or so they thought. Squint your eyes and tilt your head, and this photo of J.Law strolling in an embellished Emilio Pucci crop top and high-waist jeans becomes proof that Chrennifer Lartin, aka Martin Lawrence, is not a fabrication. The couple looks to be within ten feet of each other, so it appears that things are really heating up.
Another marriage the Kardashians couldn't keep up.
Family matriarch Kris Jenner dispatched her lawyer to Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday to file for divorce from estranged husband Bruce Jenner.
The petition comes nearly a year after they announced their separation.
"We are living separately and we are much happier this way," they said in a joint statement last October. "But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority."
According to the filing, obtained by The Insider With Yahoo, Kris cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce. She requests joint custody of their 17-year-old daughter, Kylie. (Their other daughter, Kendall, is 18.) Kris also seeks to retain her jewelry and all assets from the date of separation, listed as June 1, 2013.
Bruce, 64, and Kris, 58, tied the knot in 1991, bringing together a big brood that included Kris's kids Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, and Rob, and Bruce's kids Brody, Brandon, Casey, and Burt.
This was the third marriage for the former Olympic gold medalist, who was previously wed to Linda Thompson (1981-84) and Christi Crownover (1972-81). Kris, meanwhile, was married to the late Robert Kardashian from 1978 until 1991.
Bruce and Kris's separate lives became a plot point on their E! seriesKeeping Up With the Kardashians, as Kris lorded over their Calabasas, California, mansion and Bruce shacked up in his Malibu "man cave."
When the drama played out on TV, Bruce said, "To be honest, I just don't see myself going back. We both seem to be doing better with our space."
In recent months, they were spotted doing some Valentine's Day yoga together and were photographed holdings hands at LAX following a family trip to Thailand, which was taped for their reality series. Earlier in April, when Kris was in the hospital for an undisclosed reason, Bruce was reportedly the one who brought her there.
As far back as July 2012, the couple's marriage was starting to show cracks — or at least it appeared that way on their reality show. When they weren't simply getting on each other's nerves, they were making each other jealous. (Kris secretly met up with an ex-boyfriend, while Bruce struck up a friendship with Angie Everhart on the golf course during one episode.) Then, in November 2012, she refuted a tabloid story that claimed their relationship was over.
"These kind of stories have been circulating for the last couple of years," she told E! at the time. "We're absolutely not filing for divorce. Everything is great. We feel very blessed as a family."
Along the way, he underwent a dramatic change in appearance, growing out his hair and having additional plastic surgery.
But true to their word, things have remained amicable between the two.

On Saturday, reports first surfaced that nude pictures of Kim Kardashian were circulating the web, and by the weekend's end, she was hardly the only star whose privacy had been invaded. Amber Heard supposedly had over 50 photos stolen, including one with a topless message to fiancé Johnny Depp.
Although unconfirmed, it appears the latest round of nude leaks is related to the hacking that occurred over Labor Day weekend where Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco, and Kate Upton were among the victims.
Here's what we know:
The Latest Victims: Along with Kardashian and Heard, Rihanna, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo, Avril Lavigne, Lake Bell, Mary-Kate Olsen, Aubrey Plaza, Gabrielle Union, Emily Ratajkowski, Kate Bosworth, Meagan Good, and Hayden Panettiere were allegedly among the latest celebs to get hacked. Plus, more stolen photos appearing to be of J.Law and Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco hit the web on Saturday.
Their Reactions: So far, only Gabrielle Union and Meagan Good have spoken out about the incident.
"It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures," Union and her new husband, Dwyane Wade, said in a statement. "I can’t help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide. For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes — We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong."
Meanwhile, Good took to Instagram. "I'm definitely in shock…saddened for every one who is experiencing this," the Think Like a Man Tooactress wrote. "At the end of the day — we all now these pictures were for my husband..And at the end of the day evidently we all know how I feel about my t--ties. That’s all I've got folks…Oh yea, and for everyone who's reposting the leaked nudes? You should be ashamed of yourself."
Reps for Bosworth, Rihanna, and Kardashian have declined to comment at this time. However, the reality star spoke out about the situation earlier this month after the first round hit the web.
"I think it's a wake-up call for people to make sure they have every privacy setting," Kim told BBC Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw. "It seems like there are a lot of people that love to spend their time hacking peoples' information and that's just a scary thing."
Last week, Cuoco talked to Jimmy Kimmel about the incident. "It was just a really bad situation, but I took it into my own hands and made a joke about it," she said. "Because, you know, what are you going to do?"
"This is a flagrant violation of privacy," Lawrence's publicist wrote in a statement at the time of the first leak. "The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."
FBI Involvement: The FBI confirms that an investigation into the alleged computer intrusion/theft is ongoing, but they are not at liberty to comment on specifics in terms of alleged victims.
The Perpetrators: Once again, the photos were first published on sites such as 4chan and Reddit. No hacking suspects have been identified in connection with either leak.
4chan and Reddit Policies: After the first round of stolen photos hit the web, 4chan made a new policy on copyright infringement and they removed the photos immediately after this latest incident.
Reddit banned the hub "The Fappening" that leaked the nude pics the first time around. Reddit "deplore[s] the theft of these images" the social networking service said in a statement, and does not "condone their widespread distribution." However, Reddit also made clear in its statement that it is "unlikely" to make changes to existing site content policies in response to this specific event. Despite removal, the photos keep popping up on Reddit.
Neither company has released an updated statement.
While the photos were removed from both websites rather quickly during round two, many photos in question were quickly reposted and spread online anyway.
Following the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, Jennifer Lopez took center stage this weekend for a sizzling 90-minute show.
The 45-year-old superstar performed hits like "Jenny From the Block" and "Love Don't Cost a Thing" for a crowd of 60,000 at the Padang, Sports Singapore. Lopez wore an array of sheer costumes, including a fringed bodysuit and a white, belted number.
She took to Twitter to thank the audience:
Kendall Jenner is proving one fashion show at a time that her modeling career should be taken seriously. In New York, she walked the Diane Von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs shows, in Milan she appeared in Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana, and the burgeoning “it’ girl is sure to show up in shows at the upcoming Paris Fashion Week. But despite the fact that the fashion industry is viewing Jenner as a star on the rise, the media doesn’t seem to agree. The 18-year-old has been the subject of bullying claims and fat shaming in story after story, and the attention is not only damaging to the young adult herself, but also to her peers, admirers, and others, as well.
The latest issue of the Australian tabloid Famous magazineprinted a cover story with a photo of Jenner in a bikini at the Tommy Hilfiger show, claiming that she’s been accused of being “too fat for runway,” and agents are pressuring her to lose 8 kilograms, or about 17 pounds. Images of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” cast member appear to be manipulated, adding cellulite where she clearly doesn’t have any. (But why would it matter even if she did?) Unfortunately, the media often irresponsibly covers matters related to women’s bodies, and it has the potential for serious harm. Sarah Jackson, a psychologist at University College London and a researcher for a recent fat-shaming study, tells Yahoo Style that weight-related teasing and stigmatization have been shown to have negative effects on well-being and can lead to psychological distress. She notes that Jenner is clearly very thin, and “calling her fat sends out a strong message to impressionable young readers that might inspire unhealthy aspirations for thinness and extreme dieting.” She explains that rather than the humiliating commentary acting as a form of encouragement to eat less and slim down, this type of conduct might actually have the opposite effect, with the targeted person comfort-eating as a way of coping with feelings of inadequacy. Jason Seacat, a psychologist at Western New England University specializing in female weight stigmatization, agrees and says that “weight shaming also clearly sends a public message that overweight and obese individuals are less deserving of fair treatment and essentially gives the public permission to discriminate against these individuals.” He tells Yahoo Style that Famous’s mistreatment of Jenner also calls attention to the issue within the fashion industry that models are largely underweight and their public presence and adoration can negatively influence people’s perceptions of themselves. “Young women (and increasingly young men) are subject to brushed up, significantly modified, and unrealistic images and then become convinced that these are the ideal body standards in society,” Seacat says. “Striving to attain these thin standards is not at all healthy! Prominent media outlets need to be more responsible about the images they promote and counter these images with clear messaging that seeks to empower individuals to healthy lifestyles and not simply seek to shame them into submission.”
Jenner seems to be taking the talk following her every move in stride. (She has been in front of the camera since her preteen years, after all.) Last week, there were reports that she was the subject of backstage bullying. “Some [of the models] put out their cigarettes in Kendall’s drink!” a source told In Touch magazine. “They thought she was getting special treatment and just weren’t OK with it.” To dispel rumors, she posted a photo to Instagram of herself and a fellow model with the caption, “You can’t sit with us.” As for the Famous cover, perhaps showing up in Paris and acting professional is the best way to shut down her detractors.

It was the battle of the brunette beauties.
Cara Delevingne and Kate Beckinsale stepped out for the premiere of their film, The Face of an Angel, on Saturday night at the Toronto Film Festival, and both absolutely stunned on the red carpet.
Beckinsale rocked an Azzaro jumpsuit along with Brian Atwood shoes, a Lee Savage clutch, and Suzanne Kalan jewels. The 41-year-old actress proved that age is nothing but a number, looking just as fierce as her 22-year-old co-star.
Meanwhile, Cara opted for a floor-length, form-fitting green gown reminding us that while she acts, first and foremost she is a model. Of course, there was no actual competition going on between Kate and Cara as the two were buddy buddy all day.
The ladies took a break from press duties by grabbing a quick (albeit still working) lunch at AMC Supper Suite at America Restaurant, where Beckinsale snacked on dry chicken and cauliflower and sipped Fiji Water in the just-opened 31st-storey eatery in the Trump International Hotel. Both gals then headed back to finish up interviews until the premiere.

Following the screening, each fashionista naturally had an outfit change ahead of the afterparty.
Kate was red hot in a tight skirt and top, which showed off her tiny midsection. Meanwhile, Cara looked rocker chic in a black mini-dress, leather jacket, and sky-high black heels. Grey Goose hosted the bash at Soho House Toronto, where the two girls hung tight all night. They were laughing, taking pics, and were in good spirits amongst the intimate crowd, including co-star Daniel Bruhl and director Michael Winterbottom.

George revealed the news when he received the Humanitarian Award at Celebrity Fight Night in Tuscany, Italy.
According to People, he said, "I met my lovely bride to be here in Italy, whom I will be marrying in a couple of weeks, in Venice, of all place."
George will marry fiancé and 36-year-old lawyer Amal Alamuddin. The two met in September 2013 and got engaged in April of this year.
Keeping their wedding destination a secret until now, they took out their marriage license in London.
The suspense is over, and the countdown is on until Amal becomes a Mrs. Clooney.
Tonight's event in Italy was held in support of the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center.
Howard Stern, center, arrives at a funeral service for comedian Joan Rivers at Temple Emanu-El in New York, Sunday, …
Funerals are rarely described as star-studded affairs, but Joan Rivers was anything — everything — but ordinary.
The iconic comedian and red carpet mainstay, who died last Thursday at the age of 81 in New York City, was honored on Sunday by family, friends, and celebrities including Howard Stern, Rosie O'Donnell, Kathy Griffin, Whoopi Goldberg, Hugh Jackman, Barbara Walters, Michael Kors, Ivanka Trump, Bernadette Peters, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
The service took place at Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan and was both somber and raucous.
Order of Service for Joan Rivers
Guests at the funeral entered to a performance by the New York City Gay Men's Chorus and Broadway star Audra McDonald later sang "Smile." (The bittersweet tune was also sung at Michael Jackson's service in 2009.) Hugh Jackman performed "Quiet Please There's a Lady on Stage" from The Boy From Oz.
Other speakers included Deborah Norville, Margie Stern, and Joan's daughter, Melissa Rivers.
While it was an undeniably sad event, there was room for humor. Gossip columnist Cindy Adams, a longtime friend of Rivers, reportedly quipped, "At 81, Joan Rivers did not last as long this service."
Fans and photographers were lined up along Fifth Avenue, hoping to catch a glimpse of many of the A-listers who came to pay their respects.
And while some may bristle at the idea of paparazzi at a funeral, it's exactly what Rivers would have wanted. In her 2012 book, I Hate Everyone... Starting With Me, Rivers joked about how she'd like her funeral to go.
"I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action," she wrote. "I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents... I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyoncé's."
Rivers's body was cremated on Saturday. Her remains will be flown back to Los Angeles where they will reportedly be buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery.
The New York Police Department and New York City Health Department are both continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the star's death. She was undergoing a procedure on her throat when she momentarily stopped breathing and never recovered.
If Lady Gaga's performing onstage, you better listen. And if you don't, she'll stop singing.
When a loud crowd still chatted at the Plaza Hotel where Gaga was performing jazz tunes Friday night, she stopped in the middle of her second song because of the noise.
"Will you (expletive) shut up? We're playing some jazz," she told the crowd of a few hundred in New York City. "Goddamn rich people."
Gaga sang at the New York Fashion Week party by Harper's Bazaar, where attendees included Donatella Versace, Liberty Ross, Brooke Shields and R&B singers Maxwell and Miguel.
The 28-year-old pop star sang songs from her collaborative jazz album with Tony Bennett called "Cheek to Cheek," to be released Sept. 23. She shut up the crowd at moments when she hit impressive high notes.
Gaga sported short blond hair and a black leather dress she said her sister created for her.
The New York-born performer dedicated a cover of Cole Porter's "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" to her family and boyfriend, "Chicago Fire" actor Taylor Kinney.
"So, if you all keep it down while I sing my boyfriend a song, I'd appreciate it," she told the audience at the black-tie event.
The Friday event honored women in fashion, including Linda Evangelista, Shields and Gaga.
"An icon, I believe, is somebody that has a strong message behind their beauty and I think all of the women that are here tonight have that," Gaga said on the red carpet. "I'm not sure that I have it, but I am pretty happy to be on the list with all these super models, so thank you."
The death of girl group singer Simone Battle was ruled a suicide by hanging, authorities said Sunday.
The cause of death was determined two days after the 25-year-old Battle was found dead in her West Hollywood home, Los Angeles County Coroner's Lt. Fred Corral said.
Battle became known through her performances on the television show "X Factor." Her five-member band — G.R.L., originally a reboot of the Pussycat Dolls — had been signed by mega-hit maker Dr. Luke.
The group was featured on rapper Pitbull's hit song "Wild Wild Love" earlier this year. Battle told The Associated Press in July that the collaboration gave the group a platform to launch its debut single, "Ugly Heart."
A posting on G.R.L.'s Twitter account on Saturday said, "Words cannot express the depth of our loss. Simone's incredible talent was only surpassed by the size of her heart."
"We will carry her memory with us in everything we do," the posting continued.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A second member of the South Korean band Ladies' Code died from injuries sustained from a motor accident, her management said Sunday.
Kwon Ri-sae, 23, died Sunday morning at a hospital in Suwon, just south of Seoul. She had been unconscious after undergoing hours of emergency brain surgery following Wednesday's accident, according to Polaris Entertainment agency spokeswoman Kim Eun-kyung.
Fellow band member Go Eun-bi died shortly after a van carrying the group crashed into a guard rail on a rain-drenched highway near Seoul.
Police suspect that the van driver may have been speeding on the wet road to meet a tight schedule. The National Forensic Service is currently investigating the accident. Inspector Lee Ho-dong said the police will call in the driver, who was treated for a mild injury, for more questioning.
Another member of the five-member group fractured her jaw and two others suffered minor injuries.
Ladies' Code debuted last year.
For the third year in a row, Serena Williams is the U.S. Open champion. Her 6-3, 6-3 win over 10th-seeded Caroline Wozniacki makes her the second woman to win this title six times, and the second to complete a three-peat. She also moves into second place on the all-time wins list, joining Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert with 18 Slam titles. Only one woman, Steffi Graf, has more.
Wearing a black and white leopard print outfit with a hot pink headband, Williams didn't seem bothered by the pressure of winning title No. 18. "Whatever happens, I'm just gonna have fun," she said in the tunnel, just before making her way onto the court. At match point, she threw her racket aside and collapsed on the court, looking as grateful as the first time she accomplished this feat.
"I have been trying to reach it for so long, since last year," she said after the match. "I didn't really think would I get there."
Williams held serve in the first game, then broke Wozniacki with the help of two double faults to take a 2-0 lead. From there, they traded breaks. Throughout marathon rallies, Wozniacki seemed on the defensive, standing more than two feet behind the line while Williams bounced in front of her line. In the fifth game, it was Williams double faulting twice as Wozniacki broke her. But she came right back, converting another break before holding serve at 4-2 and again at 5-3.
In the intermission, the scoreboard cameras panned the crowd, showing Spike Lee, Gladys Knight, Debra Messing, and about a dozen other stars in attendance, all hoping to see Williams make history.
By the second set, Wozniacki looked deflated. Williams again started with a break, for the 2-0 lead. It took Wozniacki until the ninth game, trailing 3-5, to hit a non-ace winner.
Williams, 32, had already been on the tour for a decade when Wozniacki, 24, turned pro. Winning the U.S. Open title last year made her the oldest woman to win in New York; she's already won more titles in her 30s than any other woman. Steffi Graf, by comparison, won all 22 of her titles before her 30th birthday.
Many wondered if her career was on the decline as she struggled throughout the 2014 season, failing to make the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam in the first three opportunities this year. Despite her poor showings in the Slams, Williams won five singles events, a strong showing by most standards. But this was Serena, a woman who has dominated her sport for nearly 15 years and is thus held to a higher standard. She arrived in New York saying she was relaxed, but everyone else seemed to think she had something to prove.
Serena Williams, of the United States, holds up the championship trophy after defeating Caroline Wozniacki, of …
Williams made quick work of her first two rounds, finishing each in less than an hour. In the third round, she needed one hour and 35 minutes to defeat Varvara Lepchenko, the third fellow American she faced in as many matches. Her fourth round, quarterfinal and semifinal wins barely passed the one hour mark; she didn't drop a single set leading into the final.
Wozniacki, meanwhile, spent more than 10 hours on court. Two of her wins came through opponents retiring, including the semifinal. Her toughest match came in the round of 16, where she upset No. 5 Maria Sharapova. She came into the final looking for her first career Grand Slam title and first win over a reigning world No. 1. She was the runner-up here in 2009, losing to Kim Clijsters in the final, and has played in 31 Slams without a title.
With the straight-sets win Sunday, Williams became the first woman to win the U.S. Open without dropping a set since she did it in 2008. She also did it in 2002. Her winning span has gone on longer than that of any woman before her: She won her first title at 17, a good 15 years ago.
Sep 7, 2014; New York, NY, USA; Serena Williams (USA)with Martina Navratilova (left) and Chris Evert (right) at …
She has made it to 18 titles with fewer Grand Slam finals losses than any other woman; Graf had nine finals losses, Navratilova 14 and Evert 16. Williams earned $3-million for winning the title, as well as a $1-million bonus as the winner of the Emirates Airlines U.S. Open Bonus Challenge this summer.
As the celebration continued at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Sunday, Navratilova and Evert met Williams at the center of the court to officially welcome her to the 18 wins club. They gifted her an 18-carat gold bracelet with the number 18 etched on a circular pendant, and all stood together, beaming, as photographers all jostled for the best shot.
"It means a lot to me," she said. "I just could never have imagined that I would be mentioned with Chris Evert or with Martina Navratilova, because I was just a kid with a dream and a racket. Living in Compton, you know, this never happened before."
Of winning 18, she said, "It was definitely on my shoulders. It was definitely like, 'Oh, get there, get there, get there.' Now I've gotten there, so now it's a little bit of a relief."
But with winning 18, naturally, comes questions of when she will win 22, or 23, and claim the top of the all-time list. First, though, she's looking to 19.
"I am thinking about 19, which I'm kind of disappointed," she said with a smile. "[It] hasn't even been three hours and I'm already -- I have already mentioned 19. Oh, gosh. So, yeah, but not 22. I'm taking it one at a time."

She's not holding back! Britney Spearspublicly addressed the widespread rumors that her now-ex-boyfriend David Lucado cheated on her this past weekend, confirming the talk while on stage in concert for her Piece of Me Las Vegas residency.
Dressed in a sexy black one-piece outfit, Spears spoke to her fans, shouting from the stage, "Well, by now everyone knows my boyfriend cheated on me."
Spears, 32, split from her boyfriend of 17 months last week after video reportedly surfaced of Lucado kissing another woman. While she had confirmed that she was no longer with Lucado, tweeting "Ahhh the single life," Spears hadn't spoken about her ex's alleged infidelity.
Despite the dissolution of her relationship, the "Perfume" singer seems to be in good spirits. Before she mentioned during the show that she needs her girls and is on the hunt for a "really hot guy," Spears highlighted the silver lining of her situation.
"The best thing about your boyfriend cheating on you is that you get to go on another first date!" she said during the Las Vegas show on Sunday, Aug. 31. "O-M-G a first date!"
The Grammy winner will be keeping busy in the coming months with the continuation of her residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The gig was recently extended through 2015.
Milla Jovovich Debuts Baby Bump in Chic Little White Dress at the Venice International Film Festival
Milla Jovovichdebuted her teensy baby bump at the Venice International Film Festival on Wednesday, Sept. 3, where she was on-hand to premiere her latest film, Cymbeline. It was the actress’s first red carpet appearance since announcing that she is expecting her second child with husbandPaul Anderson two weeks ago.
The Resident Evil star, 38, chose a sweet and chic mini-LWD, with just enough room for her growing bump, for the international affair. She completed the look with a rhinestone-adorned ivory clutch, diamond tennis bracelet, chandelier earrings and, for a fun twist, black-striped white pumps.
Jovovich and Anderson announced the surprise pregnancy via the actress’s Facebook page on Aug. 18. “This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town, South Africa to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!” she wrote to fans.
But don’t despair, RE diehards! She then thanked her “amazing” fans — “YOU ROCK!” she wrote — and promised that she’d be back to work in South Africa on the next film in the franchise next summer, after welcoming her new baby.
Kim Kardashian wore a jaw-dropping outfit to the GQ Men of the Year Awards on Sept. 2 in London. The reality star, 33, showed off her super-slim body in a high-waisted embellished sheer skirt with a front slit, paired with a black leather bustier bodysuit.
While the mom toNorth West, 14 months, stuck to her va-va-voom style, she switched things up from her go-to middle-parted straight hair. Instead, she showed off her shorter length with beachy waves in a side part.
Kardashian attended the event at the Royal Opera House with husband Kanye West, who held his own with his fashionable wife. In between kissing his wife of three months, Yeezus looked dapper in a navy tuxedo with black trim and a low-cut black T-shirt.
Kardashian seems to be enamored with the fitted top as she wore the same one to the Made in America festival on Aug. 31. However, for that outing to see her husband perform, she wore a matching fitted leather pencil skirt.

As explained by the magazine's editor, Kardashian received the title because she has conquered TV and social media, and, following her union with Kanye West, has become the most talked about and photographed woman on the planet.
Kardashian accepted the award in person Tuesday night in London in style, wearing a black latex and gravity-defying bodysuit paired with a Ralph & Russo corseted crystal skirt.

"I want to thank GQfor making me Woman of the Year, and my husband for making me feel like woman of the year every day," she told the crowd.
Kardashian was promptly handed the wrong award. She was accidentally given Pharrell Williams's trophy — the music icon was also being honored that night— before all parties realized the mistake.
"I was taking pictures with it," she joked. "I hope no one notices it."
But while Kim sported a bold look at the GQ event, inside the magazine (here's a link to view the images), a sultry Kim featuring lightened locks, lounges around in bed naked leaving little to the imagination
A slew of other A-Listers joined the couple for last night's affair, including Pharrell, Sam Smith, Nicole Scherzinger, Lewis Hamilton, Lindsay Lohan, Cara Delevingne (who took a little tumble inside the soireé), and Jonah Hill.
It's been a banner year for Kim. After covering the April issue of Voguewith Kanye, the two married over Memorial Day weekend. In June, their daughter North West celebrated her first birthday.
Her E! television show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, just wrapped its ninth season, with a finale that highlighted the lead-up to the wedding. And her iPhone video game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, earned her an estimated $85 million.
Not a bad year's work. And it's only September.
