Michelle Obama It's Not a Cold Shoulder It's a Hot One!!!

5/22/2017 2:50 PM PDT

Michelle Obama bared enough for pretty much everyone in Tuscany to notice.

The former First Lady was out and about in a super revealing top -- if shoulders are your thing.  

Barack wore a button-down shirt casually with sleeves rolled up as he walked next to Michelle.

The Obamas are splitting their time chilling and writing memoirs ... for which they're getting paid a total of around $65 million.

Nice work if you can get it.

5/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The actors playing Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. in "All Eyez on Me" should look pretty damn authentic 'cause they're wearing actual outfits the legendary rappers wore in real life.  

Sources close to production tell us ... April Walker -- who designed for Pac and Biggie in the '90s -- brought back some of her original wardrobe designs for filming the biopic.

We're told April had to remake 2 costumes for the biopic using patterns she saved from back in the day. One of them is the yellow Walker Wear vest Tupac rocked in "Above the Rim" -- and the other is a tracksuit she custom made for Big.

Besides coming in handy for the movie ... we're told April also wants to use her old designs for a museum exhibit featuring the resurrected hip-hop wear.

Michelle Obama Belleza Rosa

While Barack was hitting the links in Tuscany, Michelle Obama was hitting the sights about 67 miles away ... and looking good in pink doing it.

The former First Lady was strolling around in Montalcino, Italy this weekend -- and she appeared to be the talk of the small town. You can't blame the locals ... she kinda stood out with the pink and white. Plus ... it's Michelle Freakin' Obama. She'll always turn heads.

Michelle snagged a second for herself during a food break, but then it was right back into the international spotlight. Togliti di mezzo!

5/16/2017 8:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James will always be #2 behind Michael Jordan when it comes to business ... so says Cris Carter, who says Jordan Brand has a secret weapon to stay ahead of Bron -- women. 

Cris was out in NYC with Nick Wright, the co-host of his new FS1 morning show, "First Things First" -- when we asked if LeBron's brand will ever overtake Jordan as the #1 name in athletic wear. 

The NFL Hall of Famer says MJ was VERY smart about growing his business -- appealing to women -- and it paid off huge. He thinks MJ has too big of a lead for LeBron to catch up.

Even Wright -- captain of the LeBron James fan club -- admits Carter has a solid point ... but couldn't leave without taking one last dig at the original #23.

Penelope Cruz did a quick change -- from brunette to blonde -- for her role in "Versace: American Crime Story."

Penelope's playing Donatella Versace, and showed up on set Monday morning in Miami looking like her usual hot self. Moments later ... she had completely transformed, thanks to the hair and makeup department. Looks like her eyebrows weren't spared either.

Cruz has rarely rocked the blonde look ... she pulls it off like a natural though.

Chris 'Big Black' Boykin Clothing Line Relaunch in Works When He Died But There's Still a Chance

5/15/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris 'Big Black' Boykin's clothing line was in the midst of a comeback ... but his untimely death brought those plans to a screeching halt.

Chris' personal manager, Mark Shin, tells TMZ ... Big Black clothing was strongly considering a relaunch fueled by continuing popularity and demand. The brand had stopped licensing and sales over the last year while strategizing their next business deal.

We're told that effort was put on pause following Chris' death Tuesday. Mark says he was the heart and soul of the brand and there were questions whether it could continue without him.

However, Mark tells us the brand's now considering a small launch with the sole purpose of having proceeds benefit Chris' daughter, Isis.

As we reported ... Chris was smart about investing his money to help set up Isis financially.

Carolina Herrera Nephew Murdered After Abduction in Venezuela

5/13/2017 6:37 AM PDT

8:15 AM PT -- Carolina just issued a statement, saying ... "The family and I appreciate your kindness. Our only hope is that the tragic assassination of our young nephew, Reinaldo and his colleague, Fabrizio will serve to mitigate the terrible carnage and murders that are committed against our youth in Venezuela. The Electoral Results must be respected. The Communist Dictatorship must go."The nephew of international fashion designer Carolina Herrera -- who's famously dressed First Ladies for decades -- was found dead in a truck in Venezeula after a violent kidnapping gone wrong.

Herrera's 34-year-old nephew, Reinaldo, was reportedly abducted from a restaurant in Caracas on Thursday night. The attackers also took his 31-year-old business partner, Fabrizio Mendoza, hostage.

Officials say a ransom was paid, but the gang killed the men anyway and left their bodies in a truck on a highway just outside the city.

Carolina is a Venezuelan-American designer known for dressing various First Ladies ... including Jackie Onassis, Laura Bush, Michelle Obama and Melania Trump.

She's scheduled to receive the 2017 Designer of Excellence Award in Chicago on Monday. We're told the event will still take place, but the president of Herrera's company will accept the award on her behalf due to the tragedy.

'Big Little Lies' Twins Score Modeling Gig ... TV Wardrobe Pays Off Big Time

Exclusive Details

Two of the youngest stars of "Big Little Lies" are still riding the HBO miniseries' wave of success ... and they have the show's stylist to thank for their latest gig.

Twins Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti just wrapped their debut modeling campaign for Ralph Lauren. We're told they shot last week in L.A. and this week in NYC, and we can expect to see their work in the winter.

Sources close to the bros tell us ... a Ralph Lauren honcho was a fan of the show and took notice of their wardrobe -- the boys were always decked out in RL. We're told it was just a coincidence -- not a pre-arranged deal with HBO. The RL exec just like how the kids rocked their clothes.

Our sources say Cam and Nic enjoyed being first-time models and want to do it again ... along with acting. Good to have options at 9.

Zach Randolph Rocks Trailblazers Hat to the Club

5/11/2017 9:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It was Way Back Wednesday for Zach Randolph -- who rocked a Portland Trail Blazers hat to the club last night ... despite the fact he's still technically on the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Randolph becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season -- and there's a buzz he could head to Miami or Denver ... or maybe even strike a new deal with the Grizzlies. 

So, is the Trail Blazers hat he rocked to Warwick in Hollywood on Wednesday a clue ... or a throwback? 

Remember, he played with Portland from 2001 to 2007 and became a superstar there while playing with guys like Rasheed Wallace, Bonzi Wells and Damon Stoudamire ('memba the Jail Blazers?). 

Or maybe he just liked the hat with his outfit.

We'll see ...

5/9/2017 12:11 PM PDT

Barack Obama couldn't just lose his signature tie during a speech in Milan -- he decided put some skin in the game.

Obama sported a straight-up trendy look during his keynote speech at the Seeds&Chips: Global Food Innovation Summit Monday in one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world. We gotta say ... he pulled it off.

The ex-prez talked climate change, post-presidency life and even took a shot at Trump, saying, "You get the politicians you deserve" when people don't vote.

The discussion seemed to be all business, even if the attire was all casual.

Gianni Versace Murder Scene Recreated For 'American Crime Story'

5/9/2017 9:20 AM PDT

It looks as real as it gets ... a gunman aiming at a man who's the spitting image of Gianni Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion and seemingly firing twice.

Darren Criss is the man with the gun, shooting for "Versace: American Crime Story" as he aims at Edgar Ramirez.

It's interesting ... the mansion is right on the boardwalk, so secrecy in filming is not an option. Still, everyone knows how it ends, but sounds like this one will be gripping.
