Justin Bieber Faces Deportation After White House Petition Reaches 10K Signatures

It seems Justin Bieber is the only one smiling after his DUI and drag racing arrest has far from impressed everyone else. Thousands of people have taken to The White House's We The People petition site to sign their support for the 19 year-old to revoke his green card.

After the Canadian's arrest, the petition was posted on 23rd of January and has already achieved the 100,000 signatures it needs in order to be assessed by The White House, with the declaration stating: 

"We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked." 

"He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
Aren't there bigger issues these people need to worry about?!

In response to this, an opposing petition named 'consider to not deport Justin Bieber' was created which stated: "People only look at his bad boy aura and not everything that he has done to help around the world. He has donated so much money to charity's but people over look that fact."

They went on to say "Chris Brown was charged for Women abuse but was let off the hook." 

Bieber will appear in front of the judge on February 14th.

Best and Worst Dressed at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival

From 16-26th of January, stars from around the world flooded to the state of Utah to celebrate and take part in the Sundance Film Festival which showcased premieres such as Laggies starring Keira Knightley and ChloĆ© Moretz, Wish I Was Here with Zach Braff and the classic Bottle Rocket with Owen Wilson. As the festival draws to a close let's take a look at the best and worst dressed from the last ten days. 

Best Dressed

Rooney Mara
Balenciaga looked amazing on the quirky Rooney Mara as she teamed her cropped navy sweater that possessed a wonderful crotchet detail on the sleeves with some skinny cigarette trousers. Combining this with a messy up-do completed her look perfectly- effortlessly chic. 

Brit Marling
I loved the unique elements of this Christopher Kane creation, as it was made clear at Sundance that sweaters are well and truly in. Marling's metallic composition began with her beige sweater that provided the perfect canvas for the iridescent scientific diagram of the anatomy of a flower, an image that is repeated multiple times on her nude midi skirt. Her look is perfectly concluded with a pair of silver pumps. 

Keira Knightley
English rose Keira Knightley never fails to wow on the red carpet and even in a casual grey jumper she turned heads. Choosing Valentino, she pulled in the slate sweatshirt with a skinny black belt and teamed it with a sheer floral print skirt. 

Miroslava Duma
By far my favourite look overall, Miroslava brought pure glamour to Sundance in Louis Vuitton with a black sheer crop top, intricately embellished jacket and feather-trimmed skirt. 

Anna Kendrick
Despite the fact that I thought Kendrick came too casual for the festival, I was a fan of her Markus Lupfer jewel print bodycon dress which she combined with smart black shoes and some loose curls. I still believe tights should be banned from the red carpet though!

Harry Styles
The most stylish member of One Direction popped over to Utah this week as he attended some of the events in what can only be described as shabby chic. His smart navy jacket juxtaposed his stylish ripped jeans, skinny spotted tie and Jack Sparrow-esque headband. 

Elizabeth Banks
Ralph Lauren's timeless shift dress complimented actress Elizabeth Banks perfectly. Three quarter length sleeves and a high, elegant neckline make for a sophisticated, but stylish look. 

Worst Dressed

Brit Marling
Despite Marling's style successes as demonstrated above, she made a wrong move when she chose this Proenza Schouler piece. The cut of the oversized trousers do nothing for her figure and the harsh brush-stroke lines on the outfit looked haggered and worn. 

Diane Kruger
Although Kruger looked smart, I was hoping for something more glamorous than a Ports 1961 piece. The beige coat swamped the petite star and her lack of make-up and excessive tweed almost left her on the manly side. Sorry Diane!

Elle Fanning
Where was the effort in this Louis Vuitton outfit? They say black is slimming but this is a little too excessive. Her scraped back hair is too harsh on her face and the boot-cut in her trousers consume her otherwise attractive shoes. 

Zoe Saldana
Oh my, what do you get when you combine Michael Kors with a Tony Burch shirt? a disaster. I really wasn't keen on this cropped jumper that revealed an un-tucked shirt. More naughty schoolboy than stylish chic, I thought this outfit was lazily put together. 

Kristen Stewart
She went through a period where she actually made effort for red carpet events, but it seems K-Stew is back to her brooding bomber jacket phase as she casually waltzed into events with her signature messy do and dirty tee. Sighhhh

Anne Hathaway
Actress Anne Hathaway looked distinctively manly this week as even though her emerald green suit complimented her to a high degree, the military boots and loose black v-neck top spoiled it. Swapping these for some subtle stilettos and a white tee would no doubt ameliorate the outfit.

Justin Bieber Arrested in Miami Beach for DUI and Drag Racing

It was only a matter of time. 

Just a week after the police raided his California home after reports that he had caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to a neighbours home, the 19 year-old was arrested in the early hours of this morning for driving under the influence and drag racing, *sigh*. 

The Biebs is looking proud in his mugshot

Bieber was driving his rented Lamborghini in Miami Beach when he was stopped and failed his sobriety test. Sergeant Bobby Hernandez told WSVN in South Florida that officers had seen two vehicles blocking Pine Tree Drive for a drag race and Bieber and the other driver are said to be in custody. Hernandez also said that the star will eventually be transported to Miami-Dade county jail. 

Bieber's home was raided a week ago. 

The Baby singer's mother spoke to The Sun recently about his behaviour, blaming everyone but him for his wayward behaviour:  

"I think so many people go into the entertainment industry with amazing Christian roots and they go in with the right morals and they get influenced somehow."

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp Engaged

He's famous for his refusal to marry former partner Vanessa Paradis with whom he had two children, but could Hollywood hunk Johnny Depp finally be tying the knot?

Current girlfriend Amber Heard sent tongues wagging when she stepped out last night in Los Angeles with her hand firmly covering her left hand, she clearly had something to hide. Whilst at a restaurant in the city, a source told E! News that she was wearing a ring but was trying all she could to shield it as she confronted photographers before getting in her car.

27 year-old Heard met Depp back in 2011 on the set of The Rum Diary in which they both starred. Keeping their relationship fairly private, they only appeared together at the Golden Globes last weekend.

Serial dater Depp has been engaged multiple times, most notably to Kate Moss and Winona Ryder and fleetingly married make-up artist Lori Anne Allison exactly 30 years ago... is he finally ready to commit?

Best and Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes 2014

Award season is well and truly here and last night the biggest and most beautiful stars were celebrating their talent in style at the Golden Globes. Let's take a look at the hits and misses on the red carpet. 

Best Dressed 

Emma Watson

What do you do when you can't make that painstaking choice between cigarette trousers and a deep red gown? You combine the two to create this stunning Dior ensemble English rose Emma Watson wore on the red carpet last night. Combining the look with slim midnight blue stilettos and a subtle low bun, the actress looked effortless. 


Amy Adams

Red was definitely a shade I was lusting after last night as fiery-haired actress Amy Adams opted for the same foxy tone as Watson. The plunging V-neck in deep maroon that led into a vibrant rouge suited her fair complection however I would have loved to have seen her hair in some loose waves. Either way a stunning piece. 

Emma Roberts

In the height of its third season, American Horror Story actress and the newly engaged Emma Roberts topped her current success by looking effortlessly chic in her LBD accompanied by intricate oversized turquoise earrings. Accentuating her features in all the right places and with scraped-back hair that allowed all eyes to be on that dress, I thought it was one of the most striking looks of the night.  

Margot Robbie 

Emerging Australian actress Margot Robbie can do no wrong lately as her pieces for The Wolf of Wall Street premieres measured up to this stunning white Gucci gown. Jewel embellishments around the waist and sleeves flattered her svelte figure and those cheeky emerald heels add a splash of colour to her ethereal look. Top marks Margot! 

Jennifer Lawrence
This lady has had a fabulous few months in fashion with an immense amount of successful pieces she donned during the world tour promotion of The Hunger Games Catching Fire. The most anticipated star of the night didn't disappoint in Dior as she embraced monochrome in this prom dress-esque sleeveless piece. Her deep rouge and oceanic earrings brought a fabulous contrast and finished off her look perfectly. You can do no wrong J- Law. 

Julie Bowen

Velvet has been in for quite a while on the high street, and I was wondering when it might infiltrate the red carpet. Bowen demonstrated the right way to wear the fabric with this simple two-tone dress complete with belt and puffed 80s-style sleeves. That plum bottom half is to die for. 

Kate Beckinsale

I'm not usually a fan of the metallic, but this shining piece would make a magpie foam at the mouth. Beckinsale combined the dress with minimal accessories, a plain black clutch and a messy up do- less is definitely more. 

Amelia Clarke
The name Proenza Schouler might not be as prominent as Dior and Oscar De La Renta when it comes to red carpet fashion, but I would note it down. The mini mosaic monochrome print on the dress incorporated translucent panelling and a sophisticated front split. Perfection. 

Julianna Margulies

Black dresses are the easiest way to make an impact whilst looking effortlessly gorgeous, suitably demonstrated here by Margulies whose black floor length gown becomes encapsulating at the shoulders and foot of the dress where gold coral-esque embellishments spread and progress. 

Amber Heard
Johnny Depp's newest beau made an Angelina-esque impact on the red carpet in this midnight blue silk Atelier dress. Her loose and volumous quiff with smokey eyes would make anyone swoon. Fabulous job Amber! 

Worst Dressed

Tina Fey

Fey is never too far from my worst dressed list, and I thought this gown was up there as one of her most dire. Curvaceous figures are fabulous but accentuating them further as demonstrated below is anything but flattering. Pink is a dangerous colour and just doesn't work here. 

Zoe Saldana

My relationship with partially sheer pieces went from a slight dislike to a clinical loathing after seeing this piece worn by Saldana last night. Baby pink and black are colours only seen in the likes of Ann Summers, and those off-shoulder straps give me palpitations. WHY! 

Uma Thurman

Two pieces are increasingly popular in high fashion and even though we are often encouraged to experiment with varying prints, this dress is a perfect demonstration of a clothing calamity. Slate grey silk combined with a black 90s-style high neck makes for a puzzling composition. 

Mila Kunis
I usually love Kunis' style but this Gucci piece looks as if it should have been thrown away with last year's tinsel. Let's just hope she won't go the same way as Miss Longoria, who is now beyond help when it comes to red carpet mishaps. 

Aubrey Plaza
Oscar de la Renta's over-simplistic bridesmaid-esque piece worn by Aubrey Plaza did nothing for me. The putrid two-tone silky gown sat uncomfortably on Plaza's figure and her matching pink clutch and purple heels make me want to vom. 

Zooey Deschanel
Oh dear maybe I'm just not into Oscar de la Renta because I was sorely disappointed with Zooey's inspid shade and style of her dress. The only redeeming element to her outfit were her intricately embellished shoes which look like they could cause potential damage if she kicked anyone. 

Bernice Bejo 

Bejo may have made an impact stepping out in this outfit last night, but in a lot of ways I wish she would have faded into the carpet. What looked like a sleeveless blazer with crustacean style embellishments clinging to it composed the top half of the piece with a tatty train that made up the bottom half. More tampon than trendsetting.  

Jemima Kirke 

Oh maybe Kirke thought the Golden Globes were hippie themed? The beach is the opposite way, love. A boho look is extremely desirable but donning a piece that looks as if it faded in the wash really isn't. 

Lena Dunham 
Wow, worst dressed of the night goes to this little lady who not only got the colour of her gown wrong, but shape too. The top half of the piece is wonderfully figure-hugging yet swamps her as it reaches into a fat fishtail. My eyes hurt. 

Reese Witherspoon 
Oh no Calvin Klein, I don't know about you but I would consider wearing this to the gym.. The halter neck and colour are perfect for a workout! Did someone pin Witherspoon down and chemically straighten her hair? The style doesn't suit her at all and I'm assuming those wispy bits at the front are some sort of fringe?
