Britney Spears’ coming nuptials will be a far cry from the quickie Vegas wedding she had last time around.
For her marriage to Kevin Federline, the pop star has hired celebrity wedding planner Yifat Oren, a source tells The Scoop.
According to another report, Spears will have 200 guests at a Nov. 20 wedding. That report, from the Star, also says Spears will have five bridesmaids and five groomsmen.
Yifat Oren operates out of Sherman Oaks, California and specializes in elegant, upscale weddings — though the insider says “she’s versatile, so if Britney decides to do something in keeping with her Louisiana roots, Yifat has also been known to use gingham tablecloths and burlap napkins for a more rustic look.”
Spears’ rep didn’t return a call for comment, and an inquiry to Oren’s office was met with a nervous giggle and a comment that “we’re not allowed to discuss our clients.”
OverexposureNaomi Campbell had a Janet Jackson moment.
The model recently strutted down a catwalk in Sao Paulo Brazil in an itsy bitsy white bikini with her left breast was fully exposed. Campbell’s bosom was so visible that onlookers might be forgiven for thinking that Campbell was making a rather bold fashion statement.
“Oh no,” Campbell’s spokeswoman told The Scoop. “Naomi would never do that. It was a wardrobe malfunction.”
Notes from all over
Courtney Love’s Web site has been shut down due to lack of funds. “Courtney can no longer fund the site, our server has been suspended, and we need to come up with $5,000 to get it back online,” reads a plea on KittyRadio.com. . . . Antonio Banderas is worried that his buddy, boybander Justin Timberlake, is going to get skewered for trying to become an actor. “He’s a funny guy and a beautiful actor really,” Banderas told the Scottish Daily record. “I think this should be a total open profession to anybody who wants to try. He will get crucified.” . . . . An anonymous hotelier is spilling the beans on celebs in a forthcoming book called "Hotel Babylon," and here are some tidbits from it that appeared in London’s Mail on Sunday: Michael Jackson once ordered 48 bottles of Evian to bathe in. He also brought his own chef, who made him kiddie food, such as fish sticks. Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee once broke into the hotel gym and had sex on an exercise bike — and the whole thing was caught on a security camera. And Kathleen Turner is allegedly “a great petit four plunderer.” According to the report, Turner “would wrap them in a napkin, drop them in her handbag and then claim she had never received any.”
