Taking a quick selfie in between takes for a shoot, the TV personality captioned the snap saying: ‘Dressing room dramas... Which shoes to wear! @angiesmithstyle @emilymcewan @louishair @themissap #ComingSoon’.
While an assistant helped her put on strappy white heels, the brunette beauty wore her locks in light waves and appeared to have smokey eye shadow.

Millie had been documenting her current stay in Marrakesh with a string of sunny snaps across social media, and she appeared keen to continue a recurring theme as the week drew to a gradual close.

Last week, the beauty proudly displayed her gym-honed physique in a leotard snap for Instagram.
When fans waded in to tell her she was too 'skinny' many leapt to her defense to point out that she maintains a particularly healthy lifestyle with a focus on strength as opposed to weight loss.
One Instagram user wrote: 'I don't know how people can sit here saying she's unhealthy. If you follow her instagram and twitter you'll know she is extremely healthy and does everything right in terms of taking care of her body.'
Say cheese: Another image, featuring Millie while her gang of female friends, comes with the caption 'The hens and bride to be! #smartiehen'

Zoe Kravitz reveals to Complex magazine that she struggled with multiple eating disorders for years

'I had a hard time loving myself!' Zoe Kravitz reveals she struggled with multiple eating disorders for years

Growing up her father was one of the world's biggest rock stars, her mother America's sitcom sweetheart and occasionally Ashton Kutcher would make omelettes in her kitchen.
But while that may seem an enviable life to most, Zoe Kravitz has revealed a childhood spent surrounded in fame can also have its dark side.
The 26-year-old actress has told Complex magazine of her struggles with eating disorders - both bulimia and anorexia - that plagued her until just two years ago.

The Mad Max star told the magazine: 'I had a really hard time when I was 16, 17, 18. I started with the eating disorder in high school… Just [a hard time] loving myself. 
'I think it was part of being a woman, and being surrounded by [fame].'
She then, according to the magazine, backtracked: 'I don't think it was about the fame, but I think it was definitely about being around that world, seeing that world. I felt pressured.'

Hard seeing herself: Zoe said she was surrounded by 'a lot of beautiful people,' and that made it hard to see her own beauty

The singer and actress said her insecurities were a combination of ideas about beauty and her upbringing as the daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and sitcom star Lisa Bonet.
Zoe said in the cover story, she was surrounded by 'a lot of beautiful people,' one of those being her mother.
'My mother's a beautiful woman, and I think, in some way, I felt intimidated by that sometimes.' 
From within: The Insurgent star said despite being the spitting image of her mother Lisa Bonet she often felt she did not measure up

But her mother also struggles with insecurity, the actress said: 'Everyone sees themselves in some weird, obscure way.
'People meet her and don't know what to do with themselves, but she doesn't know how f**king cool she is. Or what she means to the rest of the world.'
Cover girl: The actress opened up as part of a large fashion spread and interview in the magazine's April/May issue

Also, able to laugh despite the seriousness of her illness, the star added: 'My dad dated a lot of supermodels.' 
Her illness got to an alarming level after high school when the actress dropped down to just 90 pounds in the summer of 2013 to play anorexic twenty-something in film The Road Within, as she was not 'disciplined enough to play the part without letting her demons get the best of her'.
'My parents got really scared for me to go back down that road.
'It was f**ked up, man. You could see my rib cage. I was just trying to lose more weight for the film but I couldn't see: You're there. Stop. It was scary.' 
After the film she confesses to being very sick, so much so, that she did not get her period regularly, her immune system shut down and her thyroid was thrown off.
On New Year's Eve that year she finally decided enough was enough.
'I just felt it was different. I don't know if a f**king spirit came over me and said: ''You have to stop.''
'I feel like something has left my body, like some part of me is gone now, something that was making me so insecure. And it feels amazing.'
Having conquered her demons and insecurity, Zoe clearly feels confident in her own skin which was evident in the rather sexy bondage themed shoot for the magazine - that saw her wear a number of dominatrix-style PVC ensembles.
There was also a lot of good things about growing up famous, namely it more than helped the singer and actress get her foot in the door. 
At her worst: Her illness got to an alarming level when the actress dropped down to just 90 pounds in the summer of 2013 to play anorexic twenty-something in film The Road Within, which also starred Robert Patrick and Dev Patel

Zoe readily admits her last name afforded her the career she has today.
'It was very easy for me to get an agent when I wanted to act, for obvious reasons.
'And I don't know, maybe it's not because they thought I was talented - I wasn't the most talented girl in the world when I was 15. It was because my parents were famous, and they were like, ''Cool, maybe we can make money off of that.'' 
 What's in a name: There was also a lot of good things about growing up famous, namely it more than helped the singer and actress get her foot in the door

'I know so many talented people that do the most amazing things but they need to work at a restaurant. I don't. 
'I can make all the art I want and get paid to do it - it's f**king crazy. I'm so thankful for it.'
The Insurgent actress said she does struggle with whether she deserves her life at times but tries not to dwell on it.
'Sometimes it’s difficult for me to enjoy the fame.

'I guess you just have to trust that you did something awesome in a past life, like saved a kid from a burning home.'
And while she is on her way to mega stardom and her parents have already achieved this, at heart Zoe says her family are just big dorks.
She said: 'I don’t think anyone knows how funny we are.
'It’s like this whole thing where people think we’re so cool and hippie and wear velvet but we’re the f**king nerdiest people.'
'We're the nerdiest': And while she is on her way to mega stardom and her parents - Lisa and Lenny Kravitz -have already achieved this, at heart Zoe (pictured 2010) says her family are just big dorks

While her mother ran off and married her dad at just 20 - the divorced six years later - marriage is not yet on the horizon.
The 26-year-old - who previously dated Penn Badgley and Chris Pine - says she does not date that much.
'No one ever asks me out. When I tend to meet a guy who’s cool and is into me they’re like, ''You’re so cool that I can’t handle it.''
Just friends? The singer admits she's is very flirtatious with rapper Drake (pictured together in 2013) but insists they are like family

Though it seems one man have caught her eye - rapper Drake or Aubrey as she calls him - despite the fact she says they are more like family.
'We're very good friends. I’m very flirtatious... [But] he’s family to me. He’s a really, really awesome dude.
'We inspire each other. We play each other music.'

'I was really mean because I was so fed up!' Vanessa Hudgens reveals the struggles she faced dating ex Zac Efron

'I was really mean because I was so fed up!' Vanessa Hudgens reveals the struggles she faced dating ex Zac Efron

Dating a heartthrob not all it is cracked up to be.
Vanessa Hudgens has revealed her relationship with Zac Efron made her a bad person at times.
The 26-year-old has told the New York Times that she struggled during her very public relationship with her onscreen High School Musical.

In their five years together - the pair met on the set of the Disney movie in 2005 - the star said she found herself frustrated and lashing out.
However, it was not Zac that was the issue but rather the attention he got from his legion of female fans.
The Spring Breakers star said: 'I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up.
Tough times: The couple (pictured 2010) were together for five years after meeting on the set of High School Musical

'Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death stares. Then I realised that's not what that's about. ''Spread the love, be a good person, they support you, be nice.'''
While she may have learnt to deal with the girls, their relationship did not last the distance.
The actress - who is currently starring in stage musical Gigi - has of course since moved on with live-in boyfriend and fellow actor Austin Butler.
She is seen in a snap from her Instagram baring her toned stomach in a black crop top on Monday.
She captioned it: 'Baby dolls it's cloudy in NY, but I'm ready for the spring sun to kick in!
Vanessa told the Times that not only has she found happiness with Austin, she has also found a renewed passion for Christianity.
Raised Catholic, the star said she 'never felt very connected to it' but has been able to find a closer connection through Australian mega church Hillsong, which her boyfriend is a member of.
She said of the Pentecostal services: 'It feels like Arcade Fire - it's epic like that.
'They really focus on you having your own personal relationship with Jesus, which is wonderful.'
Vanessa also says at heart she is a bit of a hippie when it comes to spirituality and life as a whole.
'I'm a definite hippie. I'm literally my happiest self when I'm dancing half naked on a grass field listening to Led Zeppelin.' 
New role: Vanessa is currently starring as the title role of musical Gigi, which is now on Broadway

In her new musical role based on Colette's 1944 novel, Vanessa gets to push the boundaries as a precocious and free-spirited courtesan-in-training who strikes up a friendship with a wealthy playboy
According to the star, it is a celebration of strong women: 'It literally felt like it was a massive group of feminists, you could just feel the serious girl power in the room.'
Vanessa said she has in the past struggled to define herself as a feminist - but that has now changed.
'When yo hair crazy and your boy don't pick up the phone' Vanessa shared this photo on Saturday night as she hung out with her Broadway show cast mates

'I used to be on the fence about it just because I feel like it gets to a certain place where it almost has the reverse effect, where it's so overpowering and so aggressive that it's like rather than just standing up for female pride and female rights, it becomes, like, ''I am the man.''
'But now I feel like there's this new wave of feminists coming up that are truly about equal rights for women. I mean, Beyoncé is, like, killing the game, and I love her.'
Wild Saturday night: The singer had a blast with pals after the opening night of her show and wrote alongside this snap 'BEST. NIGHT. EVER. Gigi blessings, NY nights with my girl Steffanie, and danced my face off with Alan Cumming. Saturday night was one for the books.'

Adorable rare clouded leopard cubs make their first appearance at Florida zoo at just three weeks old

Is it time for a cat nap yet? Adorable rare clouded leopard cubs make their first appearance at Florida zoo at just three weeks old

  • Endangered female kittens were born at Zoo Miami in Florida just three weeks ago, the facility said on Monday
  • They are being held in enclosure with mother to 'avoid any external stress and allow them to all properly bond'
  • They already sport the clouded leopard's characteristic large, dark and cloud-like spots on a light background
  • Birth is a victory in the fight to preserve vulnerable species, which is not closely related to the African leopard
With their tiny pink noses, soft furry coats and sleepy eyes, these two clouded leopard cubs are simply adorable.
The highly endangered kittens, which are both female, were born at Zoo Miami in Florida just three weeks ago, a treat for the facility's doting keepers. 
They are currently being held in an enclosure with their mother, Serai, to 'avoid any external stress and allow the mother to properly bond with them'.

Both Serai, and the cubs' father, Rajasi, were born in 2011 in other American zoos. The newborn kittens are the parents' second successful litter.
The tiny cats, which are yet to be named, already sport the clouded leopard's characteristic large, dark and cloud-like spots on a light background.
Their birth is a victory in the fight to preserve a vulnerable species, which is not closely related to the African leopard.
'Both offspring are doing well and the mother continues to be attentive and nurse them on a regular basis,' the zoo told AP on Monday.
Visitors should be able to view the kittens in the coming weeks.
The clouded leopard, which is medium sized, lives in forests of South East Asia. In total, fewer than 10,000 are thought to exist in the wild.

Found in the wild in southern China, Myanmar and Malaysia, adult clouded leopards typically weigh between 30 and 50 pounds (14 to 23 kilograms).
The secretive cats have a very long tail with relatively short legs and large paws.
They eat birds and mammals such as monkeys, deer and porcupines, and are, in turn, prey to human hunters who prize them for their pelts.
