Former First Lady Hillary Clinton is getting the biopic treatment with the film Rodham, which will follow the politician during her college days — and while dating Bill, of course. The film already has a script and a director, but it's still in early production, and obviously, the biggest question is who will play Hillary. Now, British actress Carey Mulligan is reportedly the front-runner for the role, but there are a few other actresses in the game as well, so let's speculate about who should play her. Click through to vote on whether or not you can see each actress as Hillary Clinton.

There was no tribute more fitting for the 50th anniversary viewing of Cleopatra — and to the film's stars, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton — than Jessica Chastain wearing one of Taylor's Bulgari necklaces at the Cannes premiere. It was a gift given to Taylor by Burton on her 40th birthday, in 1972.
The sapphire-and-diamond sautoir (with a 65-carat center stone) is part of an eight-piece collection that the jewellery house bought back from Taylor's 2011 Christie's auction, and these pieces have rarely been loaned to celebrities. "I feel so lucky to be wearing them. They looked so fabulous on her and she was a movie star from her head to her toes," said Chastain. "That kind of glamorous star doesn't exist anymore but their diamonds do."

As for Jessica, she is in the South of France to promote the 50th anniversary of Cleopatra.

Kate Moss donned a wig and walked the runway at the Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 fashion show in Paris today. Fashionable celebrities Naomi Watts, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jessica Chastain sat front row at the show to watch Kate make her return to her old stomping ground. Kate's husband, Jamie Hince, and daughter, Lila Grace, also made the trip over the Channel to watch the model mom work her stuff. The Louis Vuitton show wasn't the only big fashion news Kate was working on — Kate was named "fashion royalty" by The Sunday Times yesterday, the same day that she attended Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book Issue 2 launch in the City of Light.
Kate's see-through Louis Vuitton dress was surprisingly less revealing than her recent nude photo shoot with Rihanna for V Magazine, which featured the singer and the model in alternating topless poses.
Kate Moss showed serious skin at the launch party for CR Fashion Book's second issue last night in Paris. She donned a sheer and crystal-studded bodysuit fresh off Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent runway to the bash held at Hotel Shangri-La. Kate posed solo once she arrived at the soiree, then linked up with her husband, Jamie Hince, to make the rounds and say hello to other guests that included Jessica Alba, Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain, Kanye West, and a whole host of fashion-world celebs. Kate may have called it an early night — she was on the runway in the Louis Vuttion Fall 2013 show this morning to support another of her designer pals, Marc Jacobs.
Earlier today, the most anticipated ready-to-wear show of the season kicked off at the Grand Palais in Paris. Chanel reigning King of the world (or so we must infer from the giant globe in the centre of the room), Karl Lagerfeld was there to greet his famous fashionable fans that included Vanessa Paradis, Leigh Lezark, Alice Dellal, Anna Wintour, Livia Firth, Milla Jovovich, Princess Caroline of Hanover, Jessica Chastain and Clotilde Hesme.
