A-List Make-Up Artist

Beats The Crap Out of Robber

...With His Brushing Hand

10/4/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-kristofer-buckle-getty-01An A-list make-up artist known for his Audrey Hepburn eyebrows and clients like Mariah Carey and Jessica Chastain, turned from pretty boy to Batman after a guy tried robbing his pal's NYC jewelry store.

Kristofer Buckle says he was helping his friend open Thursday morning when he got jumped by a man trying to break into the closed shop.

Here's the thing ... kicking butt isn't part of Buckle's day-to-day ... he's usually powdering the noses of his really impressive clientele -- Carey, Chastain, Sheryl Crow, Khloe Kardashian, Christina AguileraKelly Ripa and Julianna Margulies, to name a few.

1002-sub-kristofer-buckle-instagram-01Still, what happened outside the storefront doesn't fall far from his line of work because it reads like a movie script. Buckle tells us he was able to lift the guy on his back off the ground, backpedal, slam him into a parked truck out front, flip him over onto the sidewalk and throw a few jabs and kicks in.

Buckle only suffered a minor bruise to his pinky. As for the suspect, he got away before the cops came. Buckle says the bad guy will have to deal with the fact he got his ass beat by a pretty boy, which is punishment enough.


Kylie Jenner

Most Shocking Photo ...

This Really Is Her!

9/21/2015 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921-kylie-jenner-side-by-side-different-X17-getty-03_subDo NOT trust your eyes ... this IS Kylie Jenner going deep, DEEP undercover on Monday without a lick of makeup, and what appears to be her real hair.

KJ was out car shopping ('cause one Ferrari's never enough) in Calabasas, and what an incredible difference a few days makes! The pic on the right is Kylie at NY Fashion Week. 

The 18-year-old is now the reigning popularity queen in the fam, but we can't recall her rocking such a natural look in public since her pre-teen days. Nice to know Tyga's GF can still look like she's 18 every now and then.

Although we doubt he sees it that way.


Former Miss New York Contestant

Decrowned For Going Topless

'I Deserve An Apology Too'

9/15/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


A former Miss New York contestant forced to give up her crown by the Miss America Organization after appearing topless in a film wants an apology similar to Vanessa Williams'.

Jennifer DeLora was crowned Miss Ulster County, New York in 1986 and was about to compete for the Miss New York crown when the org came across her starring role in "Bad Girls Dormitory," in which she was topless for only 7 seconds.

DeLora says she got a letter notifying her she had 72 hours to surrender her county crown for what the organization called conduct that was "indecent and in bad taste."


The letter said her conduct not only violated pageant rules, but they were also protecting her from looming bad publicity like Williams endured 2 years earlier.

DeLora grouses Williams' photos were far more lurid than her tepid nude scene.

She says the organization took away her title, scholarship money and her pride and now she's demanding an apology too.

Bad girls do cry.

Gigi & Bella Hadid

A Pair of Bums

0914_gigi_bella_hadid_tommy_hilfiger_booty_butts_photos_launchSisters Gigi and Bella Hadid let their buns hang out as they walked the runway Monday for Tommy Hilfiger during New York Fashion Week.

Forget bikinis, these two should be the spokeswomen for genes.

Miss America Pageant

Meltdown Over

Vanessa Williams Apology

9/11/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0910-vanessa-williams-tmz-4The Miss America execs preparing for the live show on Sunday are in crisis mode over Vanessa Williams' appearance ... and it all has to do with the nude, girl-on-girl pics that caused her to get dethroned 31 years ago.

Sources connected with the pageant tell TMZ, Vanessa agreed to appear at the beginning of the show where a Miss America official would apologize for forcing her to resign after the now-famous photos were unearthed. Vanessa would then be presented with a fresh crown.  

But production sources tell TMZ, there was a meeting Wednesday between Vanessa's people and the organization and it all hit the fan, because the Miss America people were under the impression Vanessa would apologize for her actions, and then they would give her the crown.

It seems almost ridiculous pageant officials would think Vanessa would fall on the sword, but that's the case. 

As of Thursday night, the 2 sides are at an impasse. The pressure's on the organization, because a promo has been running non-stop touting Vanessa's return.

Mara Teigen

Guess Who Loves You?

Just Read the Signs

8/29/2015 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0829-mara-teigen-sign-tmz-01Mara Teigen just got a message from her hockey player ex-boyfriend ... a message she and anyone else driving the Sunset Strip could see.

It appears Evander Kane isn't closing the book on her relationship, making it clear to the Wilhelmina model he still has love for her.

The Buffalo Sabres forward rented the billboard above 1 OAK in West Hollywood, which as billboards go is prime real estate and impossible to miss.

Hope you score, Evander.

Kourtney Kardashian

Feeling Gray ...

Thanks a Lot, Scott!

7/15/2015 12:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0715-kourtney-kardashian-splashThe latest victim of Scott Disick's antics is ... Kourtney Kardashian's long, flowing, formerly dark hair -- which has suddenly got a serious silver streak.

Kourt did lunch with Kim and Khloe, and flashed a patch of premature (she's only 36) grays around her right ear. 

The gray wasn't there just a week ago when she did the single parent thing at Disneyland.

Look, being a single mom, juggling 4 kids -- including Scott -- this was bound to happen sooner than later.

Silver lining: Hair matched her shoes!

Donald Trump

I'm Suing Univision for Hundreds of Millions

Over Miss USA

6/25/2015 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



11:15 AM PT -- Cristian de la Fuente just confirmed what Donald told us. He was never hired as the host. He was merely brought on by Univision to host a simulcast. 


Donald Trump has a vision for Univision ... it involves a courtroom, a jury and a bank account that will be bled dry.

Trump tells TMZ, he will sue Univision for "hundreds of millions of dollars" for breaching what he says is a binding, 5 year deal to air the Miss USA pageant. 

The Donald says Univision had no legal right to back out of the deal Thursday, based on his comments about Mexico and Mexicans, saying many of them who come here are drug dealers and rapists.

Trump tells us, the contract, which was signed in January of this year, is iron-clad. He also says Univision became immediately apologetic after pulling the plug, telling him they were backed against a wall and pleading with him not to talk about Mexico anymore or to at least soften his view.

The candidate says, "I love the Mexican people, but I'm running for President and our country comes first."

And, as for Cristian de la Fuente, the "Devious Maids" star who says he's backing out of hosting the pageant, Trump tells us, "We never even signed the guy. After the Miss USA people saw him they were unimpressed."

Justin Bieber & Ruby Rose

Mirror Has Two Faces ...

Or Maybe Just One

6/20/2015 4:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0620_ruby_justin_bieber_instagramRuby Rose, meet ... Ruby Rose, or maybe it's Justin Bieber. Everyone has wanted to see this pic, to either end or fuel speculation that they may be the same person.

The two met up at Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas ... Ruby posted it on instagram.

The big question, who attracts more chicks?

Eli Manning

Let's Talk Body Hair ...

To Shave or Not to Shave?

6/19/2015 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ever look at Eli Manning and think ... "Hmmm, wonder if that guy shaves his chest hair?"

Well, good news -- WE JUST FOUND OUT!!! 

Eli and his father, Archie Manning, were at Rockefeller Center in NYC this morning -- when we asked Archie to reveal the best Father's Day gift he ever got from his super famous kids. 

Long story short ... we got into personal grooming habits ... and that's when Eli revealed what he's packin' under his shirt. 

You're welcome America. 

Ruby Rose

Lighten Up!

Blonde Hair & NO CLOTHES

6/19/2015 7:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0619-ruby-rose-maxim-mainRuby Rose wasn't always the short-haired brunette, perfect-faced beauty we know today -- she used to be a LONG-haired BLONDE, perfect-faced beauty ... and yes, she still looked AWESOME. 

The new "Orange Is the New Black" star posed for Maxim Australia back in 2011, but she's almost unrecognizable on the cover ... which is a totally nude shot. Tastefully done, of course. 

Ruby was already tatted up back then, and apparently religious. If you're not ... we suspect holding her well-placed rosary beads will bring you closer to God.  

The chick's a smoke show in or OUT of anything. Just sayin' ... 



Orlando Bloom

My New Swimmer's Body

Is The Real Heat Winner

6/19/2015 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The only ripples in the pool with Orlando Bloom are on his newly-chiseled body ... and his workout is no joke.

A buff Bloom hit an L.A. pool Thursday where he pumped some serious iron in-between laps ... it's a new thing -- swimming and weights.

He actually makes a swimmer's cap and goggles look good, but then again this pool shark has never had a problem reelin' in chicks.
