In a royal wedding befitting Canada's queen of pop, Céline Dion, 26, married her longtime manager, René Angélil, 52, before 500 guests at Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal. "It was magic," Dion said of the 90-minute nuptial mass, "the ceremony of my dreams."
ER's pediatrician (and resident heartthrob) George Clooney scrubbed up for a night on the town with actress Kimberly Russell, who played the brainy kid on the TV series Head of the Class. The couple looked cozy at L.A.'s Golden Apple Awards of the Hollywood Women's Press Club, but it's too early for a diagnosis.
Her blonde ambition thinly veiled, the lady Madonna slew onlookers outside the Palace of Salvatierra in Ronda, Spain, where she shot part of her beauty-and-the-bullfighter video for "Take a Bow," which is on her latest CD, Bedtime Stories, now No. 16 on the pop charts.
Fashion's a snap for Manhattan's jauntily clad supercouple Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, who skirted Central Park on a recent stroll. Currently, Basinger mingles with big-name designers as the ditsy fashion reporter for FAD-TV in Robert Altman's Ready to Wear; Baldwin suits up to play a gumshoe in the forthcoming thriller Heaven's Prisoner.
Not even Giorgio Armani's nonstop fashion show (300 creations on 75 models) could top the rags and riches of the 1,200 partygoers who attended the Fire and Ice Ball to benefit the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program in L.A. Cher (right) came with her son Elijah Blue, 18, who showed the smart 'do (or don't) among the student-and-sometime-musician set. Supermodel Veronica Webb (below, right) ran hot and cold by short-skirting a fashionable ensemble. Ellen Barkin (below) and actor David Arquette got into a tight squeeze at the gala, which raised $1.5 million.
