Leonardo DiCaprio Spotted with Victoria's Secret Model

INFphoto.com(PARIS) -- Leonardo DiCaprio was seen touring the palace of Versailles in France with Victoria’s Secret model Toni Garrn. The two have been linked since May.

The 38-year-old Great Gatsby actor and 20-year-old model were joined by a large group, including DiCaprio’s longtime friend Lukas Haas.

The group toured the property and snapped photos from a balcony, looking low-key and casual. DiCaprio wore a newsboy cap and a t-shirt, while Garrn stuck to a white tee, jean cut-offs and sunglasses.

Last month, the pair was photographed leaving the yacht Odessa, in Port Saint Laurent Du Var, and watching the Monaco Formula One Grand Pix.

“They’ve been getting quite close over the last week,” a source told the New York Daily News. “There is definitely chemistry there.”

Kate Upton Upset with Victoria's Secret

Photo by Tony Barson/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Supermodel Kate Upton is furious at Victoria's Secret for using old photos of her after her relationship with the company had ended.

Upton, who has appeared on the covers of Sports Illustrated and Vogue, is also in the latest Victoria's Secret catalogue, but sources tell ABC News, "She's not thrilled about the images being used."

In fact, sources say she wasn't even told she'd be featured.

The photo, taken in 2011, shows Upton in black lingerie when she was under contract with Victoria's Secret. But that contract is over, as is their relationship, ever since a Victoria's Secret model booker told the New York Times, "We would never use Kate. She's like a footballer's wife, with the too-blonde hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money could go out and buy."

"Whether Victoria's Secret owned the rights to this photo or not, it's very unorthodox for a company to use a model in this explicit way without that model's knowledge first," Tony Case, executive editor of Adweek, told ABC News.

The 20-year-old quickly rose to fame after being discovered in 2008. And just three years later, landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated, about the same time she was working for Victoria's Secret. But shortly thereafter, the lingerie giant reportedly branded her as too "obvious" for the runway and dropped her.

This leaves some wondering if she wasn't good enough then, why is she good enough now?

"When those photos were taken two years ago, none of us really knew who Kate Upton was," said Cynthia Bailey, CEO of the Bailey School of Fashion. "Now she's a huge celebrity and if Victoria's Secret owns those photos, it's just good business for them to use them."

ABC News reached out to both camps for comment, but neither side is talking.

Sundance Celebrity Sightings: Alessandra Ambrosio Hits the Slopes

Mark Sullivan/WireImage(PARK CITY, Utah) -- Park City got just a little bit hotter on Saturday when Victoria’s Secret beauty Alessandra Ambrosio hit the slopes. Ambrosio stopped by Oakley and New Era’s Learn to Ride lounge before strapping on a snowboard for the first time. Later that night, she rocked out at Hyde to the tunes of Adrian Grenier’s band, The Skins.

Other stars opted for indoor activities — Mamie Gummer, Meryl Streep’s daughter and the co-star of the Sundance film “The Lifeguard,” got her makeup done at Urban Decay’s beauty bar in the Fender lounge. Jane Seymour touched up her hair at the Keratin Complex pop up salon. Octavia Spencer copped a new Speck case for her iPhone at Variety’s Sundance studio, and also popped into the Talent Resources suite to browse through Sean Jean jackets. “Dancing With the Stars’” Karina Smirnoff  and “90210′s” Annalynne McCord  came by Talent Resources to check out Cover Girl makeup and nibble on macarons from Macaron Magnifique.

Saturday night’s toast of the town was “Fruitvale,” a heart-wrenching re-telling of the events leading up to the murder of Oscar Grant at a San Francisco BART station in 2009. Spencer and her co-star Michael B. Jordan gamely hugged well-wishers and fans at “Fruitvale’s” premiere party at the Grey Goose Blue Door Lounge. Later, Casey Affleck, Josh Hartnett, and none other than Tony Danza came through to party, signaling that Grey Goose was very much the boss of Saturday night’s film party circuit.

Adriana Lima Pregnant with Second Child

John Parra/WireImage for Victoria's Secret(NEW YORK) -- Victoria’s Secret angel Adriana Lima has another angel of her own on the way. The Brazilian model, 30, and her husband, Serbian basketball player Marko Jaric, are expecting their second child.

“The entire family is very excited, especially Valentina,” Lima told People magazine today, referring to her 2-year-old daughter. “She keeps blowing kisses to my belly and saying, ‘Kisses for the baby.’”

Last month, Lima dished to ABCNews.com about her jaw-dropping Teleflora.com Super Bowl and said she hopes to do more work on screen. Asked whether starring in a commercial seen by more than 100 million people is more or less nerve-wracking than walking down a runway wearing next to nothing, Lima said, “None of that. I love my job, and the people that I get to work with are very professional. I really enjoy everything, both of them.”

Adriana Lima: Leave Gisele Bundchen Alone

John Parra/WireImage for Victoria's Secret(NEW YORK) -- Gisele Bundchen’s Victoria’s Secret buddies have her back.  While the supermodel and former VS Angel has been blasted for criticizing her husband’s Patriots teammates after their crushing Super Bowl loss, on Wednesday, Adriana Lima told ABC News, “I think we should leave the girl alone.”

Lima also talked about her Teleflora.com Super Bowl ad at the lingerie line’s Valentine’s Day preview in New York. Asked whether starring in a commercial seen by more than 100 million people is more or less nerve-wracking than walking down a runway wearing next to nothing, Lima said, “None of that. I love my job, and the people that I get to work with are very professional. I really enjoy everything, both of them.”

Will we be seeing more of Lima on screen? “I hope so! Of course,” she said.

Victoria's Secret Model Quits,Says Body Should 'Only Be for My Husband'

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Victoria's Secret model Kylie Bisutti is done showing off her body for anyone other than her husband.

The 21-year-old winner of the 2009 Victoria's Secret Model Search competition dropped off the supermodel radar last year, declining to appear in December's televised Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Bisutti explained her decision then by tweeting, "For all of you that were looking for me in the Victoria's Secret runway show this year, I wasn't in it. I have decided not to model lingerie."

Bisutti went on to say her strong Christian beliefs were the reason. "My body should only be for my husband and it’s just a sacred thing," she recently told Fox News. "The more I was modeling lingerie -- and lingerie isn’t clothing -- I just started becoming more uncomfortable with it because of my faith."

"My marriage is very important and with divorce rates rising I want to do everything I can to protect my marriage and be respectful to my husband," she added.

Bisutti hasn't abandoned modeling altogether, however. She recently appeared with Jennifer Lopez in a Kohl's commercial for Lopez's clothing line.
