Merry Celebmas! Our Favorite Celebrity Holiday Twitpics + Instagrams

View Photo Gallery

If celebrities didn’t Instagram and tweet pics of themselves in Santa hats, how would we know it’s the holidays? Lucky for us, we’ll never find out. Every December, celebs seem to go Christmas-crazy on social media, posting flawlessly filtered pics of themselves in front of trees, wrapping gifts, and making kissy faces in red sequined crop tops (oh hi, Miley Cyrus). And we love it, because for one shining moment, these larger-than-life stars are just as goofy and tis-the-season mad as we are — and they seem almost…normal.

Of course, then we’ll come across a pic of Justin Bieber wearing a wifebeater in what’s meant to be a snowy, wintry scene. Which is not a normal, at all.

In any event, check out our ten favorite superstar holiday pics — from Demi Lovato to Puffy!

She Got Legs! The 10 Most Gorgeous Gams of 2013

View Photo Gallery

It’s undeniable that butts had a huge year — but honestly? Legs got a ton of shine in 2013, too. It seemed like the hottest starlets swanning down red carpets and heating up industry parties had one thing in common: mile-long, endless, taut and toned gams. Whether they were bronzed up and sparkly (a’la Jennifer Lopez and Lea Michele) or model-esque and lanky (like Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift), legs were the years’s sexiest accessory. We even learned that Kristen Stewart had a fabulous — if a slightly moody and grumpy — pair of stems.

Thanks to the popularity of tiny rompers, itsy-bitsy shorts — and those sparkly leotards favored by international pop stars on stage — legs were front and center more than ever. Here, check out the top ten leggiest looks of 2013.

American Hustle Stars Remind Us How Sexy The ’70s Really Were

After The Fighter and Silver Linings Playlist, I never doubted that David O. Russell’s American Hustle would be a great film. What surprised me, though, is how it transformed the over-the-top, slightly sleazy aesthetic of its 1978 setting into something truly seductive and sexy. Seriously, I’m scared that men are going to start following Christian Bale’s example and start sporting hairpiece-assisted combovers. When I spoke to Bale, Russell, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, I grilled them about what they found sexy about the era.

Who Nailed It This Year? The Best Nail Art Of 2013!

View Photo Gallery

The year 2013 has been sprinkled n’ showered with more bling-worthy moments than a person can count. We’ve seen iced out grills rocked by fresh-faced ladies and an assortment of awesome sneakers – recall all those smokin’ pairs worn at the VMAs. But 2013 has been embellishing more than just pearly-white smiles and fancy feet – it has been a year of manicure madness. M.I.A. is working more than just a bedazzled voice, she’s sporting some decked out nails and then some. From glitter polish to rhinestone trimmings, she’s fancy Christmas-tree caliber. And let’s not forget the jazzy tips rocked by Kelly Osbourne, Zooey Deschanel and Emmy Rossum – just to name a few.

Even At 50, There’s Nothing ‘Inglorious’ About Brad Pitt’s Hairvolution

View Photo Gallery

Is there anything more perfect than Brad Pitt? He’s got the perfect wife, perfect career, perfect kids, perfect smile, perfect muscular physique and … let’s stop there, because while we could go on all day, we’re pretty sure none of you need convincing. Even his fashion missteps are perfect, in their own special way! It’s true. We can’t entirely fault Brad for those long bleached blonde locks (it was the ’90s) or even the Kate Gosselin-styled ‘do (also ’90s!). And no one else could rock a scraggly, dreaded beard more grandly than Pitt. Also, most of his, shall we say, less-than-ideal stylings were for a role, or for saving New Orleans, or something.

Christian Bale: Hollywood’s Secret Nice Guy?

View Photo/Video Gallery

American Hustle and Out of the Furnace star Christian Bale doesn’t exactly have the reputation for being warm and fuzzy. Maybe it’s because he so convincingly played Patrick Bateman in American Psycho, maybe it’s because he famously went off on a crew member on Terminator: Salvation, or maybe it’s just because he doesn’t want the public to know what a really nice guy he is! Is Christian Bale secretly the nicest guy in Hollywood?

Evil Pageant Queens! Dance School Sadists! The 10 Worst Reality Villains of 2013

View Photo Gallery

We don’t watch reality shows for the sweet characters. The do-gooders, the faithful wives, the lifelong friends who don’t leap across tables to rip each other’s throats out. No, it’s all about the villains!  Now, it’s a reality show standard to have a wild card (or two) on each show. Hair-pulling, backstabbing, boyfriend-stealing, tacky tantrums, blatant bullying…this is what the genre is made of!

And the best villains know that the shows depend on them. If they really channel their inner lunatic, these characters can land endorsement deals, book contracts, or, like Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes (a reformed villain), they can even score a role on a legit scripted show — hello, Glee.

In 2013, the reality genre experienced a villain boom. Dance Mom’s Abby Lee Miller was like a witch out of a Grimm’s fairy tale, cackling as she tortured the hell out of her dance school students. Love & Hip Hop’s Peter Gunz seemed cool enough, but then we discovered his schizophrenic love life — five babymamas, a secret wife and a girlfriend! Here, we salute the craziest reality cast members of the year.

Lupita Nyong’o is getting all of the hype this awards season for her star-making role in 12 Years A Slave.  But could the insanely talented actress (and recent Yale School of Drama grad) be the next Jennifer Lawrence? Is Anthony Mackie going to be the next Denzel Washington? Or Oscar Isaac the next Christian Bale?

Buckle up, Hollywood fans, because there’s going to be a new A-list in town soon, and while they’re all original, they have one thing in common: a U.S. drama school degree…

We keep hearing that vampires, werewolves, witches and angels are losing steam in pop culture, that people want real drama these days. Um, not as long as Internet fandoms around! You can’t take away our eternal love and lust for the shirt-ripping shapeshifters of Teen Wolf, the muscled gods of Thor, the seductive witches of American Horror Story: Coven or the blood-sucking immortals of The Vampire Diaries.

Happy Birthday, Vanessa Hudgens! Watch Her Grow Up, And Strip Down, Before Your Eyes

Vanessa Hudgens turns 25 years old today, and instead of having a quarter life crisis — or a public meltdown like other young Hollywood starlets these days — the High School Musical alumna is throwing herself into her work, somewhat responsibly. Not only has she continued departing from her Disney days by assuming adult roles in films like Spring Breakers and Gimme Shelter (January 2014), but she’s also becoming the face  — ahem, and body — of charitable organizations the world over.
