The latest news on today's hottest celebrities

PIPPA MIDDLETON: Pippa Middleton, maid of honor when her big sister married a future British king, emerged from the wedding a star.

By the time Middleton returned to the Goring Hotel in London early Saturday from the wedding party at Buckingham Palace, there were three Facebook pages dedicated to her shapely posterior, the Daily Mail reported.

A correspondent noted that she appeared to be as popular with women as with men. Everyone was struck by her poise as she shepherded a flock of young bridesmaids and pages up the aisle in Westminster Abbey and supported her sister, now Catherine, duchess of Cambridge, throughout the day.

The sisters wore dresses for the ceremony from the same designer, Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, and had their hair styled identically.

Pippa, 27, works for her parents' company, Party Pieces. Like her older sister, she went to Marlborough College, an English private school, and then went on to study literature at the University of Edinburgh.

The Sun reported Pippa attracted the attention of one high-ranking member of the wedding party, the best man.

"You do look very beautiful today -- seriously," Prince Harry told her.

QUENTIN TARANTINO: Quentin Tarantino has written and will direct a spaghetti western called "Django Unchained" for The Weinstein Co., based in New York, officials said.

Stacey Sher and Pilar Savone will produce the film.

Daily Variety said Tarantino hasn't made any casting decisions.

Producer brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, through their former studio Miramax, released Tarantino's 1994 movie "Pulp Fiction," which grossed more than $200 million worldwide.

The Variety report did not say when the "Django" film would be released.

MARIAH CAREY: Mariah Carey did not plan the arrival of her twin boy and girl in Los Angeles on the third anniversary of her wedding to Nick Cannon, a spokeswoman says.

"No, not even Mariah could plan for that," Cindi Berger told People Magazine.

Carey gave birth Saturday at a hospital in Los Angeles. The girl weighed 5 pounds, 3 ounces, and her slightly younger brother was 3 ounces more.

Cannon, a judge on "America's Got Talent," took note of the anniversary in a Tweet: "My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won't ever be able to top this!"

Berger said she has spoken to both Carey and Cannon and described them as "overjoyed." Carey has also received congratulations from a number of celebrities, including expectant mother Alyssa Milano.

LORENZO LAMAS: Hollywood actor Lorenzo Lamas has married model Shawna Craig at the Casa Dorada Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, E! News reported.

The actor proposed to Craig, 24, in February after about three months of dating, noted.

E! News said Craig wore a traditional white gown with a long train for Saturday's beach-side service.

Lamas, who is known for his work on TV's "Falcon Crest" and "Renegade," donned white pants, a black long-sleeved shirt and flip-flops for his latest wedding, E! News said.
