Kate Middleton DJs in Alexander McQueen; Dylan Penn Lands Modeling Contract

And Jessica Chastain to play Marilyn Monroe in upcoming film.

Kate Middleton DJs in Alexander McQueen: On Day 16 of the royal tour of Australia and New Zealand, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stopped by The Northern Sound System youth center in Adelaide…to learn how to DJ. Dressed in a repeat pale pink Alexander McQueen skirt suit, Kate Middleton took a turn spinning on the facility’s deck boards—proving the Duchess has no problem relating to a young demographic.

Dylan Penn Lands Modeling Contract: With parents like Sean Penn and Robin Wright, it’s no surprise that London's Premier Model Management—which helped launch the careers of Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, and Cindy Crawford—has officially signed the 23-year-old actress/model. "We are very excited to be working with Dylan," Emily Sykes, head of special bookings at Premier, told Vogue UK. "She represents the modern model and muse—so intelligent, with bags of personality and talent. We see great potential." [Vogue UK]

Jessica Chastain To Play Marilyn Monroe: For Andrew Dominik’s upcoming film project based on Joyce Carol Oates’s novel, Blonde—which re-imagines the life of Marilyn Monroe—two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain is reportedly close to signing a deal to play one of the most iconic women in history. After Dominik let it slip at a screening of Jesse James in February that Chastain was his favored choice, multiple sources close to the production of the film have confirmed with The Wrap that Chastain will soon be walking in the shoes of Norma Jean Baker. [The Wrap
