Look at my Top Guns! Tom Cruise brandishes revolver tattoos as he's flanked by blonde groupies in Rock of Ages shoot



Tom Cruise is really gunning for it in his new shoot to promote Rock of Ages. 
The actor unveiled a host of fake tattoos - including two revolvers on his toned torso - for a daring pictorial with fashion magazine, W.
Eye-liner, long hair and low-slung Rita Ryack leather pants help complete his transformation into larger-than-life rocker Stacee Jaxx.
The 49-year-old is flanked by blonde groupies played by models Edita Vilkeviciute and Abbey Lee Kershaw in the cover shoot and inside, he sticks his tongue out in a classic rock god pose.

Cruise amped up his sex appeal for his role in the film adaption of the Broadway show. 
He plays an 80s performer in the movie adaptation of the classic musical - which also stars Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

He said: 'I knew we had to push the sexuality because of the nature of the character and the songs. He’s singing, 'I want to know what love is'."
The movie is helmed by Hairspray director Adam Shankman and Cruise says his family's love of musicals inspired him to take on the role.

He tells the publication: 'Kate loves musicals. She sings and dances, and we kind of went through the history of musicals together. And Suri loved Hairspray. With kids, you watch everything over and over; I watched Hairspray 15 times with Suri. 
'I thought Adam Shankman did a great job directing the movie, so I arranged to meet him and said, “Where’s our musical?” He came back and said, Rock of Ages. We went and saw it in L.A., and for me…I didn’t know how to play the character like that. I had to find my own Stacee Jaxx.'
Tom belts out a string of classic tracks including Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead or Alive and Guns 'N Roses' Paradise City and his singing ability certainly impressed his bosses, including music producer Adam Anders.
Although his vocals were shaky to star with, he eventually learned how to do amazing things with his voice.

Adam said: 'Now he's like a seven, but he started off at a one. He had never sung in his life. He was like, "I need to know that I can do this before I sign on." So I went to his house to hear him sing and even though he was completely green as a singer, his vocal cords were amazing. 
'He had this voice that blew me away. It was the most powerful voice I had ever heard. So loud. He could do anything and go as high as we wanted. 
'It was like a kid discovering he had a new toy. I left there super-pumped knowing that not only could we make him pass as a singer in the movie, but we would blow people away with what he could do.'
Adam believes Tom initially began filming with a sense of nerves but his self-belief grew as the movie continued shooting.
He added to The Hollywood Reporter: 'His confidence kept growing as we worked together. I think he started off a little nervous, as anybody would who has never done this, but he just bought it 110 per cent. 
'He works harder than anybody I've ever met in my life. By the end of this movie, the guy was just phenomenal. I remember telling him, 'You're a singer!' '
Rock of Ages is released in cinemas in the US and UK on June 15.

'I haven't and I never would': Tom Cruise dismisses the idea his youthful appearance is down to plastic surgery



He turns 50 in two months but Tom Cruise hardly seems to have aged since he became a full-fledged superstar thanks to his role in 1986’s Top Gun.
And while it could easily be assumed that the actor has turned to plastic surgery to maintain his youthful appearance, the star has now spoken out to insist he has not gone under the knife.
He even went one step further to claim he would ‘never’ resort to cosmetic surgery in order to turn back the clock.

The Mission Impossible star spoke out in an interview with Playboy magazine, and when asked if he has had any work done, Tom said: ‘I haven’t and I never would.’
The star laughed when he was asked how he manages to look half his age, and said: ‘I honestly have no idea. I work. I’m always with family. I train, go without sleep. I just go hard.’
The Hollywood heavyweight also used the interview as an opportunity to gush about his love for wife of five years Katie Holmes, 33.
Tom said: ‘She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity.

‘She’s funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better. I’m a romantic. I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that.’
He added: ‘I don’t know what to say – I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.’
The pair, who are parents to six-year-old daughter Suri, married in November 2006 in a Scientology ceremony.
And while he is an advocate of the religion, Tom told the men’s magazine that he isn’t one to impose his beliefs onto other.

He said: ‘I have respect for what other people believe. What I believe in my own life is that it’s a search for how I can do things better, whether it’s being a better man or a better father or finding ways for myself to improve.
‘Individuals have to decide what is true and real for them. I’m fortunate in the life I have.’
Tom stars in ensemble film Rock of Ages, an adaptation of the Broadway hit, which hits cinemas on June 15.
He also plays the role of Jack Reacher in the film adaptation of Lee Child’s book One Shot, due for release later this year.

Peek-a-boo chic or sheer folly? LIZ JONES on the new see-through celebrity look



With each new fashion trend I often ponder the provenance.
What were the designers thinking when they came up with sheer - first glimpsed on the catwalk in 2008, in transparent, gossamer gowns designed by John Galliano for Dior couture, and which is now ubiquitous?
Do they find it funny we are all going out and about showing our big pants?
Gothic dream: I think this is rather lovely. Actress Kristen Stewart is always a bit gothic rather than girly, but in this lace fishtail gown by Marchesa the look is softened by panels of silver. It hugs her figure, too

Feathered fiend: Beyonce in Givenchy at the Met Ball is a lesson to us all. Instead of the lace giving her a waist, creating a trompe l'oeil of hourglass loveliness, she looks wide. Sheer can be unforgiving.

Strictly awful: I fell in love with Alesha Dixon during BGT: she has such an open, beautiful face, and a big dirty laugh. But this dress is truly terrible: she looks like a circus performer at a funeral

In theory, sheer should be wearable: it should be sexy, but still give that all-important coverage. It should give a little air to a long gown, and mould and sculpt the body. Too often, though, sheer is given all the thought and skill applied to a pair of net curtains.
The best sheer is provided by lace, pioneered on the catwalk so memorably in the autumn/winter 2008 collection from Miuccia Prada, who sent an entirely lace collection down the runway.

Even then, all the women in the front row were thinking: ‘It will be fine once it’s been lined.’
But as with all these trends it has been bastardised and sent out on yet another celebrity keen to show off her gym-honed limbs. 
This week, it became apparent that the look had reached critical mass when both Charlize  Theron and Kristen Stewart, stars of the new film Snow White And The Huntsman, wore sheer to its London premiere.
But to see how it should be done, look at the way Dannii Minogue wears her Jasper Conran dress: just a hint of what lies beneath . . .
Get knotted: I find Charlize Theron's Dior gown a bit muddled, like a giant knot. It¿s all too gothic: she needs a silver bag and shoes, plus softer make-up

Red alert: Jessie J's outfits on The Voice have been bizarre: patterned pyjamas and even a tutu, which should be barred on anyone over six. But at the Brits she looked fabulous - a splash of colour for a change, and a bit of cheekiness

Strictly ballgowns: New exhibition at the V&A to chart the glitz and glamour of formal gowns over the decades



A collection of extravagant, decadent and often bizarre dresses by some of fashion's top designers will go on display to celebrate the glitz and glamour of Britain's ballgowns. 
One of the gowns featured in the exhibition at London's Victoria and Albert Museum is made entirely from feathers while another boasts an unusual combination of latex and lace.    
They are just two examples from the eclectic range of 60 dresses marking the journey of formal attire from private events to the public parade in Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950.

Co-curator Sonnet Stanfill said: 'This exhibition is a very exciting moment for us, we really wanted to launch the new fashion gallery with a display that celebrated British fashion design.'

The show displays a vast array of specially made designs for social events like debutante balls, royal state occasions and red carpet events spanning 60 years.               
Ms Stanfill continued: 'Most people are excited by the idea of a fairytale evening, of choosing a gown that shows their level of taste.        
'There is the moment that everyone hopes for when a woman goes to her wardrobe and chooses a gown, to have that moment where you feel like you're the belle of the ball.'
Visitors stepping into the softly lit halls, will be able to see some of the most beautiful and daring creations from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Erdem.

Projections of the gowns, shot by photographer David Hughes, are beamed on each alcove of the domed ceiling in crisp detail.  
The lower gallery showcases historic gowns dating back to the 1950s, including a Norman Hartnell design for the late Queen Mother and Princess Diana's Elvis Dress by Catherine Walker.         
Choosing the designers and the dresses on the display was an extremely difficult task, Stanfill said.     
'We really looked for things that showcased different couture techniques, different silhouettes and also of course, it had to be British, so by culling through our permanent collection, we chose the pieces that we felt were the grandest examples.'

White chandeliers and giant silvery pearl necklaces which the mannequins are perched upon make up the new mezzanine level, which was designed to represent a grand ballroom.          
But the exhibition isn't all about parties and layers of tulle and froth, added Stanfill, who said she discovered a layer of subversion beneath Atsuko Kudo's design, which appears to be lace but is made from latex.    
'One of the things I have really enjoyed working for on this show, is notion of subversion. 
'It's more than just a dress, it's that one element of surprise that I have really enjoyed discovering,' Stanfill said.        
'British design, you think you know what it's all about and then something comes along and upends your preconceived notions.'
