Grace Kelly-inspired jewels enjoyed by Dianna Agron, Amber Heard

Amber Heard celebrated Grace Kelly inspired jewels

Need proof that Grace Kelly still captivates the crowd? Even jewelry inspired by the late movie star and royal commands the full attention of Hollywood.

Amber Heard, "Glee" beauty Dianna Agron, Raquel Welch, Jackie and Joan Collins, Brian Grazer and Cheryl Tiegs were among the fans at a celebration for Montblanc's Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco.

In support of its weeklong Campaign Hollywood, Vanity Fair on Tuesday hosted the cocktail fete for the collection of fine jewels and timepieces inspired by the icon at L.A.'s swanky Hotel Bel-Air.

It's a crowded week for Oscar parties, but this one was nice departure from the usual celebrations for the year's nominees. Embracing film legacies seems to be contagious.

The same evening, stars celebrated the 40th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin's honorary Oscar — with guests including Jessica Chastain, Harvey Weinstein, Jared Leto and Kate Bosworth.

'Glee' graduation scheduled: Ryan Murphy confirms cast is moving on

The "Glee" kids are graduating High School.

Looks like the singing high schoolers on "Glee," the New Directions, have another big number to prepare: their swan song.

Show creator Ryan Murphy revealed that, after some speculation, he'll be letting show stars such as Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Mark Salling and Dianna Agron follow the natural progression of their characters. Meaning graduation and then, well, bye.

"We didn’t want to have a show where they were in high school for eight years. We really wanted it to be true to that experience. We thought it would be really cool if we were true to the timeline," Murphy said on Ryan Seacrest's radio show.

"I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing," he said for any Rachel Berry fans afraid they're swapping her for new blood, "because I think the thing about this cast is people love them and they are incredibly talented. They’ve left sort of an indelible mark.”

This leaves those crazy kids open for movies, albums, reality projects, making some milkshakes for the paparazzi and then any inevitable comebacks. Murphy confirmed that small-screen teachers Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch would remain as the "linchpins" of the series.

Dianna Agron of 'Glee' likes girls -- explain, please?

Dianna Agron This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom for details.

Dianna Agron likes girls -- no, loves girls -- and she would like to explain herself, if you have time for an essay.

In Toronto on Saturday, during one of the seemingly never-ending "Glee" live tours, the real person behind Quinn Fabrey decided to go public with her feelings, changing into a shirt that said "Likes Girls" for the troupe's performance of "Born This Way."

Agron's appearance in the shirt — modeled on costumes worn in an episode about facing prejudice and self-down and conveniently available at the tour's merch table — caused gleeks to utter a collective "Huh?"

Was Agron outing herself onstage? Will Quinn and Naya Rivera's Santana be dating next season? Or was she wryly commenting on Jane Lynch's appearance with Bill Maher for a dramatic reading of a salacious sexting exchange from Rep. Anthony Weiner's oeuvre?

The explanation is hardly dishy: Seemingly feeling an extra boost of inspiration from Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," she said she was expressing how much she loves and respects the women in her life and showing how much she supports the LGBT community.

She explained in detail on her Tumblr blog:

[D]uring our second show, Instead of wearing my usual shirt during "Born This Way" I decided to wear one that said "Likes Girls". It should actually have read, "Loves Girls", because I do. The women in my life give me things that the men in my life can’t. And vice-versa. No, I am not a lesbian, yet if I were, I hope that the people in my life could embrace it whole-heartedly. And let me tell you, I can easily spill (quite comfortably) what I admire, respect and think is beautiful about any of the women in my life. Piece of cake!

There's a whole lot more; as Agron put it, she did write "an essay."

"I am not asking for you to agree with what I am saying, but if you are listening, thank you," Agron wrote. "That is all I can ask. And a step further would be to take a moment to (honestly) answer the questions that I have raised."

Deep. So what say you, gleeks — agree or disagree?  

[For the record, 9:51 a.m. June 13: A previous version of this post stated that "Glee Live! In Concert" played Toronto on Friday. The Toronto show was on Saturday.]

Alex Pettyfer's home catches fire on day of 'Beastly' premiere

Alex Pettyfer at 'Beastly' premiere after small house fire You could say that Alex Pettyfer had to put out a fire before arriving late to the premiere of his newest film, "Beastly," a modern-day telling of "Beauty and the Beast" that costars Vanessa Hudgens and Neil Patrick Harris.

A small fire broke out at the actor's home shortly before he was scheduled to arrive at the Grove in Los Angeles for the film's Thursday premiere. But the British actor said it was that pesky L.A. traffic that made him late.

Fire officials responded to a fire in the 1300 block of North Beverly Drive near Beverly Hills at 5:41 p.m. Flames were emanating from a detached garage and firefighters from four fire companies were able to put them out by 6:05 p.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Greg Acevedo said.

There were no injuries reported and no damage figure was given. Fire officials are still investigating the cause, he said.

Acevedo couldn't confirm that it was Pettyfer's home; however, it was widely reported that the 20-year-old lived there.

"There was a small electrical fire in the garage of Alex Pettyfer's house last night," his rep told People in a statement. "It was immediately contained. There was no significant damage, and Alex, though slightly delayed, was at his premiere last night."

"There was a little last-minute emergency with Alex Pettyfer. Everything is fine, but Alex had a little fire hence the late start but ... he's fine and he's here," the film's director, Daniel Barnz, said when he introduced the film at the screening. But sources said Pettyfer bailed on the party at nearby Whisper Lounge after the screening.

Pettyfer had shared the home with "Glee" star Dianna Agron while they were dating and were rumored to be engaged (they weren't). But the couple called it quits earlier this month, after which it was reported -- and then debunked -- that Agron was "terrified" of her ex-roomie/"I Am Number Four" costar. So though "smoke" was rumored before this fire, there's no reason to connect them.
