    Dripping in glamour and treachery and based on a true-life story, the House Of Gucci has got both film and fashion fans buzzing. From a virginal bridal gown to sizzling skiwear, the film has its leading lady — Lady Gaga as jealous Patrizia Reggiani, who hired a hitman to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci — tripping a veritable catwalk of style across the big screen. Ahead of today's release, Oscar-winning British costume designer Janty Yates, exclusively reveals the secrets that turned Lady Gaga into 'the Black Widow' ... 1: SHORT CUT TO STYLE First impressions count, and the dress worn by Patrizia when she met Maurizio Gucci at a party is a belter, based on a pink dress the real-life Patrizia wore. It was made using duchess satin and took six weeks to fit at the hands of Janty's costume cutter, Dominic Young. Originally the gown was much longer — rising by 18 in at Ridley Scott's request. Janty says: 'We kept five camera crews waiting that day, luckily LG [as she calls Lady Gaga] had her man with her...
    YABBA Dabba Doo! Archaeologists have discovered Flintstones-like cavemen were showing off their best bling 41,500 years ago. They found an oval medallion carved out of woolly mammoth bone — which would make even TV cartoon character Fred proud — buried in a cave. 3Archaeologists found an oval medallion carved out of woolly mammoth bon 3The prehistoric jewellery would even make TV cartoon character Fred proud Tests have shown it is around 2,000 years older than other examples of prehistoric jewellery. And experts believe a pattern of dots on the 4.5cm by 1.5cm pendant may plot the position of the moon in the ancient night sky. But the design could also be “hunting scores”, a record of animals or humans killed by the owner, a counting system or just decoration. Radiocarbon dating was used to find the 4.5cm by 1.5cm pendant’s age. Other “personal ornaments” found in Germany, which were previously thought to be the oldest, are 2,000 years younger. Prof Sahra Talamo, of Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, found the ancient treasure in rocks in Stajnia Cave, Poland....
    An intricately decorated ivory pendant made from mammoth bone has been discovered in Poland, and may be the oldest example of ornate jewellery found in Eurasia yet. The pendant dates back around 41,500 years, placing it within the record of the earliest dispersals of Homo sapiens in Europe. It features patterns of over 50 puncture marks in an irregular looping curve, and two complete holes, which could represent hunting tallies or lunar notations, according to the researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. 'If the Stajnia pendant's looping curve indicates a lunar analemma or kill scores will remain an open question,' said Adam Nadachowski, co-author of the study. 'However, it is fascinating that similar decorations appeared independently across Europe.' A 41,500 year old oval-shaped ivory pendant made from mammoth bone (pictured) represents the earliest known example of ornate jewellery made by humans in Eurasia, a new study claims What does the pattern on the pendant mean? The features patterns of over 50 puncture marks in an irregular looping curve, and two complete holes, which could represent hunting tallies or...

    As red-carpet appearances go, it was certainly a case of putting your money where your mouth is. Turning heads — and possibly a few stomachs — Angelina Jolie did what she does best, shocking onlookers by wearing a metal chin cuff to the premiere of her latest film. Hooked inside her lower lip and running down to beneath her chin, the 14-carat-gold gobsmacker was an unexpected addition to Angelina’s otherwise understated outfit. But it’s not the first time she has paraded an unusual adornment. This is the woman, after all, whose idea of marital devotion was to wear a vial of her second husband Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around her neck. So is this a weird but wonderful new direction for jewellery design, or just an oddity chosen to attract maximum publicity for Angelina’s new movie, Eternals? She’s all mouth... Angie’s edgy look will have limited her air kisses all night — but will it catch on with the public, or just get caught on someone’s collar?

    A Bronze Age hillfort in France may represent a lost Celtic capital city, archaeologists said after finding treasures there including jewellery, weapons and chariot parts. The priceless trove was unearthed near Gannat in France's Allier department, some 80 miles northwest of Lyon, by experts from the University of Toulouse–Jean Jaurès. Excavations revealed a large — 30 hectares in total — fortified settlement which would have sported a double row of ramparts and 20-feet-high stone walls. The site has yielded hundreds of items thought to have been buried in around 800 BC as part of a religious ritual. Such abundance is rare from French hillforts. Indeed, it represents one of the richest metal deposits sites from the Bronze Age ever discovered in Europe, experts have said.  The excavations also represent something of a victory for posterity over looters — who had begun to plunder some of the treasures from the site back in 2017. During the time of the Gannat Hill Fort, the Allier region had significant economic value due to the navigable Sioule river and local tin deposits for making bronze.  A Bronze...

    The tall, well-dressed woman lingered by the rail of fur coats in Selfridges, a row of diamond rings glinting on her fingers. In the lean years after World War II, such beautiful sables cost more than six months’ wages, so the shop assistant busied herself with another customer, assuming only a wealthy lady could afford to browse. But in the blink of an eye, the woman had snatched a fur, rolling it into a bundle, then quickly pulling open the waistband of her skirt and stuffing it down a leg of her bloomers, which were elasticated at the knee to help hold her loot.  Then she calmly strolled away. By the time the assistant realised the fur had gone, Alice Diamond, the Queen of The Forty Thieves, was relaxing in the back of her Chrysler in Oxford Street, sharing a joke with two of her ‘girls’, who had stuffed their pockets full of silk stockings in their spree. It was just another day for London’s most notorious girl gang, which targeted high-end shops in the first half of the 20th...
