Kirsten Stewart poses in freezing Paris for renowned photographer Mario Testino. Normally used to the tomboy look she managed to pull off the look elegant look

As the star of the Twilight films, Kristen Stewart is no stranger to the chilly realm of the undead.
But last week it was the freezing parks of Paris that made her blood run cold, as the 21-year-old bared her shoulders in a strapless haute couture ballgown.
Her switch from vampire to vamp was all in the name of fashion, with her poses for photographer Mario Testino set to adorn a future edition of glossy style bible Vanity Fair.

On and off-screen lovers: Kristen with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson

Ms Stewart’s elegant look, in voluminous blue dress and precariously perched black fascinator, is a far cry from her more usual grungy style.
She is known to favour a comfortable tomboy chic – often appearing in Converse trainers and free of make-up – but has nonetheless caught the eye of top designers, and was pictured in Paris earlier in the week with Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld.

The Twilight star later covered up from the freezing cold with a black jacket

Meanwhile, her stint in the Twilight films that made her such a star is coming to an end after four years.
In the most recent installment, Breaking Dawn: Part One, her character Bella Swan became a vampire, to cheat death in childbirth.
The second part of that story, and the final episode of the whole saga, will be released later in the year. After that, Ms Stewart, who is dating her
Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, will be seen in a big-screen version of Jack Kerouac’s classic Beat Generation book On The Road and Snow White And The Huntsman, a reworking of the familiar fairy tale.

Lather me up: A friend puts sunblock on Leann Rimes' back at a Malibu beach house as she recovers from 'facial surgery'

When you're feeling down and out, there's nothing like feeling the sand beneath your toes to make you feel better.
That's exactly what LeAnn Rimes thought as she headed to Malibu after undergoing surgery on her face. The singer revealed on Twitter she had had an operation, but didn't go into detail, just saying the procedure was minor. She was spotted on the balcony of a beach house in a string bikini, enjoying the scorching rays.
The stylish two piece - one of the many in her collection - featured a pink, purple and white paisley design and she paired the number with a blue and white trucker hat.
A loyal friend was seen lathering sunblock on the 29-year-old's back.
She later covered up in a white kaftan as she enjoyed a cold beverage.

Reaching the hard bits: The singer had tweeted that she was in 'so much pain it's not funny'

The How Do I Live singer told her 241,000 Twitter followers earlier: 'K, coming clean....I had minor surgery this week and I've been in SO much pain it's not even funny. Nothing major just annoying! Pain pain go away!!!!!! When it's mouth pain and jaw pain it makes your whole head pound! YUCK'
She later revealed she had had 'facial surgery' and joked to a friend 'Lol that makes it sound like I got work done. You are gonna start some rumors'.
LeAnn added: 'The pain is subsiding finally for a moment. My head has been vibrating all day. Maybe the sand under my feet is helping.'

Fitted: Kim Kardashian shows off her famous curvy figure in a clinging low cut top and tight workout pants as she headed to the gym in Beverly Hills earlier today

She is known for her famous curves, and Kim Kardashian left little to the imagination as she stepped out in Beverly Hills today.
The 31-year-old reality star showed off her enviable figure in an ultra low cut top and tightly fitted gym trousers as she headed for a workout.
With her hair pulled up into a ponytail and minimal make-up, Kim sporting matching trainers to her lime green top.

Curvy: Kim looked stunning despite the casual ensemble as she made her way into the upmarket gym

She later transformed into her usual glamorous self, stepping out in a pair of black shorts, blazer and peach coloured top.
However, the star looked in sombre mood, as reports surfaced that she is considering moving house to a gated community after having to deal with a trespasser at home last week. According to TMZ, a stranger appeared at her Beverly Hills mansion last weekend with several suitcases and requested to stay in her home.

Sombre: The reality show star looked focussed today, after reports surfaced that she is keen to relocate to a gated community after dealing with a trespasser at her home

The website claims it was told by a source that police officers were called to the house and the man in question told them he had a job interview lined up with the reality star. The man was reportedly given a trespassing warning by the police, who then allegedly drove him back to the airport so that he could book a flight home.
The reality TV star is said to be checking out properties in upscale Los Angeles suburbs including Bel Air, and also at the popular Mulholland Estates.

Secrets of the night: Fireflies in a forest somewhere in the southern part of Okayama Prefecture were captured by time-lapse photography

On hot, hazy summer nights, fireflies take centre stage as they fly through the night air, punctuating the darkness with flecks of yellow light.
But Japanese photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu captured their beauty in a whole new light, using time-lapse photography.
The result - lush images that show patterns of light that looks more like celestial figures than arthropods.

Firefly interstate: Looking like they're jumping around in beams of light, fireflies take flight in a whole new way

The images were taken throughout Japan; the effect was achieved by using different exposures and apertures on his Nikon camera.
The unique phenomena of lightning bugs being able to light up come from bioluminescence, which is created when a pigment and chemical react.

Mythical forest: Artist Tsuneaki Hiramatsu spent nearly four years photographing these tiny creatures

It is most often seen in sea creatures. According to, up to 90 per cent of marine life use bioluminescence. The astounding feat is often seen in deep sea trenches and other parts of the ocean where sunlight does not reach.
Fireflies use two chemicals – luciferase and luciferin. The former glows when combined with the latter, which is an enzyme that triggers light emission.

Golden orbs: The artist captured a dazzling string of lights in Okayama Prefecture in a pattern that looks more like a constellation than fireflies

A midsummer night's dream: Fireflies thrive in humid environments and can often be found in wooded areas near ponds and streams

According to, even firefly larvae glow in the dark, and have been known to respond to such external stimulants like mild vibrations.
These photographs by Mr Hiramatsu were captured in the wilds of the Okayama Prefecture – none of the artist’s photographs were captured with camera flashes or artificial light.
He snapped them between 2008 and 2011.

Blinded by science: The unique phenomena of lightning bugs being able to light up comes from bioluminescence, which is created when a pigment and chemical react

Many fireflies in the United States live in woodlands and forests, especially near ponds and streams. They use their light as a way to attract mates and also as a means of communication.
Though many think they are flies, the creatures are part of the beetle family.
Females often wait on tree leaves and grass to spot a male she likes. The males, meanwhile, will do their best to put on the most impressive light show they can muster. They live and thrive in humid conditions, and can be found on every continent except Antarctica.

I pull up outside a house in the Durham mining village of West Auckland to find an anonymous-looking place: a slim, three-storey family home distinguished from its neighbours only by its pretty, blue-grey paint.
There are no clues as to its gruesome past. Even its original house number has been changed, perhaps from fear that the evil that was perpetrated here could pass down through successive generations of residents.
This is the home in which Britain’s first serial killer, Mary Ann Cotton, claimed her final victim. It is the house in which she was arrested and then taken away to be incarcerated, before eventually being executed at Durham Jail in March 1873.

Britain's first serial killer, Mary Ann Cotton

Few have heard of the so-called ‘Black Widow’ killer who posed as a wife, widow, mother, friend and nurse to murder perhaps as many as 21 victims, living off her husbands before eventually claiming their estates. Two decades before Jack the Ripper would terrorise the streets of Whitechapel in London, Mary Ann Cotton had already become a killing machine, perhaps murdering as many as eight of her own children, seven stepchildren, her mother, three husbands, a lover – and an inconvenient friend.

The property, centre left, where Mary Ann cotton was living when she was arrested in 1873

Even crime aficionados, those familiar with such names as Shipman, Nilsen, Sutcliffe and West, know little or nothing of her. She has been largely erased from history and remains today only a half-remembered local curiosity even in her native North East.
There is certainly no walking tour retracing her murderous progress through County Durham, nor sad monuments erected to honour the memories of her victims. A woman who should have been a criminal icon has been reduced to little more than a chilling bedtime story and a Northern nursery rhyme: ‘Sing, sing, oh, what can I sing? Mary Ann Cotton is tied up with string. Where, where? Up in the air, sellin’ black puddens a penny a pair.’

The property as it is today, painted blue, has changed very little from what it looked like in 1873

A single book marked the centenary of her execution. As one of Britain’s leading criminologists and a former prison governor, I would like to know why. I have worked on police investigations and with many serial killers. Yet even to me, the life and terrible work of Mary Ann Cotton were largely a mystery.
And so throughout the spring and summer last year, I spent time in the North East researching a new book on this woman who travelled from one pit village to another leaving only gravestones behind her and who, in doing so, gained real, if loathsome, historical importance.

Top criminologist Professor David Wilson

Here is not just the first British serial killer – someone who has killed more than three people in a period greater than 30 days – but the first to exploit and abuse the anonymity of a new industrial age.
My search began in the Home Office archives at Kew, South-West London, in the autumn of 2010. I found the usual records that measure the criminal careers of Victorian prisoners: her age, an occasional glimpse of what life had been like before prison, details of Mary Ann’s court appearances, and some letters from the governor of Durham Jail before her execution.

Mary Ann Cotton was hanged in 1873 at Durham Jail after she was accused of killing 21 people

Mary Ann’s father was killed in early 1842, when she was aged nine, apparently plummeting down a shaft while repairing a pulley wheel at the Murton Colliery. Mary Ann would have been instructed to find work and marry, which she did on July 18, 1852, becoming the wife of colliery worker William Mowbray.
First seeking their fortunes in Cornwall – another region where miners could find work – the Mowbrays returned to the North East in 1860, and this, so far as we know, is where the killing began. Her motives will always remain a matter of conjecture, but a strong pattern emerged: Mary Ann would find a man with an income, live with him until it became inconvenient, and then murder him. Numerous children – no one knows how many – were dispatched with the same callousness.

William Calcraft who had to ensure Cotton was dead after the execution was horribly botched

Her choice of poison was arsenic, favoured by murderers down the centuries for largely pragmatic reasons. First, it dissolves in a hot liquid, a cup of tea, for example, so is easy to administer. Second, it was readily available. Although by this stage, the authorities had started regulating the sale of arsenic, a high concentration could still be obtained in a substance known as ‘soft soap’, a household disinfectant.
There was a third reason, too: as Mary Ann well knew, the symptoms of arsenic poisoning were vomiting, diarrhoea and dehydration. A busy and unsuspecting doctor was always more likely to diagnose this cluster of symptoms as gastroenteritis – especially in patients who were poor and undernourished – than to suspect murder.
According to death and burial certificates, all her victims had died of gastric ailments.

I’ve pieced together the trail of deaths associated with Mary Ann, and it starts with her first family. She bore William Mowbray, her first husband, at least four children, three of whom died young.
William died in January 1865, leaving Mary Ann to enjoy the £35 payout from British and Prudential Insurance, equivalent then to six months’ salary.
The total of murdered Mowbray children might have been greater still as, according to Mary Ann’s own testimony, she had earlier given birth to four children while the family was in the West Country. She used the insurance payout to move to Seaham Harbour, a port village in County Durham, so that she could be close to a lover called Joseph Nattrass.

A prison officer told me that no one ever escapes from Durham Prison.
Not even Mary Ann, who remains – despite the odd bit of local lore in the villages of County Durham – long dead and buried in the prison’s grounds.
Murder Grew With Her: On The Trail Of Mary Ann Cotton, Britain’s First Serial Killer, by Professor David Wilson, will be published later this year.

Making tracks: A picturesque scene near the village of Shipbourne in Kent this morning

Dumps of over six inches of snow yesterday and throughout the night brought travel chaos to parts of Britain, with 100 vehicles stranded on the M40, huge tailbacks on the M25, hundreds of flights cancelled and severe disruption to train and Tube services.
With most of the UK on amber alert, the Met Office's second highest severe weather warning, a string of sporting fixtures were also hit by the big chill.
Flurries fell over Scotland, northern England and the Midlands yesterday before moving down to London and East Anglia.

The south experienced the worst travel misery with around 100 vehicles stuck on the M40 for several hours between junction four at High Wycombe and junction nine at Bicester. They only got moving again after snow ploughs came to the rescue.

Motorists Katie Jones told BBC News: ‘We were stationary for about seven and a half hours. We passed cars abandoned in the side of the road, having crashed off. We passed lorries jack knifed across two, three lanes of the motorway and it's been impassable in large part.’
Bad weather also caused traffic to grind to a standstill on parts of the M25.
Tom Jones, who was stuck for more than seven hours in the gridlock, told the BBC there was a ‘nose-to-tail standstill’ on sections of the motorway in Hertfordshire as he tried to make his way home to Harrow in north-west London.
‘We joined the back of a tailback, never realising we would be spending the night on the motorway,’ he said.

‘Everybody has been in here for a lot longer than they expected.’

Mr Jones saw lorry drivers fall asleep in their cabs, having given up hope of getting out of the queue during the night.
He had to get out of his car at times to wake drivers up whenever the queue started morning.
Although Mr Jones was frustrated by the lack of information he had received from authorities, he conceded the Highways Agency was dealing with ‘some particularly special driving’.
Before the jam he saw many motorists were ‘hurtling’ along at unsafe speeds.
