VH1 Diva Kelly Clarkson graces the cover of next month’s Self magazine, and the singer wows in a silky purple top and white denim. The Idol winner is known for embracing her shape and snubbing society’s obsession with the stick-thin skinny look, and she totally owns it in this picture.
Clarkson told an Australian radio station in June that she is super comfortable in her own skin. “I love my body,” said Kelly. “I’m very much OK with it. I don’t think artists are ever the ones who have the problem with their weight, it is other people.”
Spoken like a true down-to-earth diva!
“VH1 Divas” will air live on Sept. 17 at 9PM EST. Until then, get your divas fix by reading the full VH1 Divas press release, following the VH1 Divas Twitter and watching videos by the artists in the lineup. Plus, leave a testimonial for one of the divas at divastories.vh1.com. [Photo: Self Magazine/I’mNotObsessed]
Oh, OK, of course she doesn’t really. But a sudden gust of wind at the London premiere of her latest movie The Ugly Truth gave outspoken star Katherine Heigl an unfortunate momentary silhouette. It’s as if for one brief second she was eight months pregnant (from the front and behind) or wearing a costume for the Weebles Reunion Conference. Truth be told, the one-armed green sparkly dress didn’t look that much better when the breezy London weather wasn’t playing up, and a whole lot less funny. [Photo: Splash News Online]
After starting off the year with a heated divorce court battle with ex-husband Peter Cook, who she busted sleeping with his 18-year-old assistant last year, Christie Brinkley emerged at the Southhampton Hospital’s 51st Annual Summer Summer Benefit Gala in Southhampton looking like a vision in yellow. The former supermodel accessorized perfectly with a minimally made up post-divorce glow on her face, gladiator flats, a turquoise cocktail ring, gold bangle earrings and a multicolor necklace that made her yellow floor length dress pop. Take that! [Photos: Splash News Online]
Jessica Simpson will be adding lingerie to her burgeoning merchandising empire which already includes clothing, luggage, bikinis, and fragrances.
“My intimates are feminine and sweet with a hint of fun,” Jessica says of her new lingerie line. “I love lingerie. What girl doesn’t? My lingerie reflects the way I’m feeling when I wake up and helps me set the tone for my day.”
“We spent a lot of time on the details,” Jessica says. “I really wanted to make this line special.”

Back in June, Lindsay Lohan shot a photo spread with Elle UK (see video from the shoot above). You may recall that she was accused of stealing at least $45,000 worth of jewelry from the shoot and was being investigated by British police for the incident. Now, the September issue of Elle UK is out with Lohan on the cover (and the sub-header “7 Unbelievable Days With Lindsay Lohan”), and it does sound like the time the magazine spent with her was unbelievable – some (er, us) might even say intolerable.
Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy wrote in her letter from the editor, “Lindsay Lohan wrote me a note during this month’s cover shoot. It read, ‘Let’s do it again some time.’ I’ve put it on my office wall because, in all honesty, I don’t know if I could. This was the most unpredictable, and confusing cover shoot in my magazine career. First, Lindsay was about to arrive. Then she was in Paris. She was almost on set, then she disappeared into her hotel room. She was ready for her interview, then she had to have a fake tan! But we got there. And what we got was amazing. This shoot is truly original, just like Ms. Lohan herself. In the end, she did her job brilliantly and, I hope you’ll agree, so did we.”
We’re getting agita just thinking about what these people had to deal with. In the cover shot, Lohan’s image is overexposed, ironically, to make her appear pale white – so much for that extra tanning sesh.
We are really pleased that Mischa Barton spent some time in rehab recently. We really hope it’s done her a lot of good, and that there’ll be less incidents of the starlet rocking up to events clearly off her tree and pretty miserable. We’re really happy that she’s dyed her hair a shade of brown — doesn’t it look nice? Um, we’re really pleased she’s smiling in this photo, too — isn’t she pretty?
OK, we’ve ran out of positive things to say, now. That dress, dear God, the dress! Mischa! Please stay sober and everything, but we cannot be supportive of such a heinous gathering of fabric, ever. Did you wear this for a bet? Or was it from the set of your new show? Or do you need a fashion “sponsor” to accompany you now at all times, gently urging you to step away from the cutaway Lycra bondage dresses? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Rihanna is always on the cutting-edge of style (helloooo, dagger-shaped nails) and must be used to posers imitating her bold style. But apparently the singer was a little peeved with Ciara recently copied her cropped look – even though RiRi hasn’t worn her hair like this since January 2008. Says a spy, “Ciara has always looked up to Rihanna, so this is not a big surprise. They used to be friends, but Rihanna’s over her. She’d like Ciara to get her own look.”
Damn! Was she mad when Lindsay Lohan and Lily Allen totally ripped off her “Shhhh” tattoo too? We’ve got both the ladies and their competing hair-dos above. Which singer do you think pulls it off? Vote above and tell us!
It’s been said that there are three stages to a movie actress’s career: babe, District Attorney and Driving Miss Daisy. And although Kylie Minogue hasn’t done much film acting (we don’t really count Street Fighter and The Delinquents, sorry) the singer has slipped neatly into her second stage with this new haircut. We’re not really loving the boofy sensible ‘do, but it’s sometimes hard to remember that Kylie is actually 41. Welcome to District Attorney land, Ms Minogue! [Photo: Splash News Online]
We can’t really work out why Rihanna didn’t wear a bra with this outfit. It’s a long-sleeved black top which in no way would be compromised by the addition of supportive underwear. Still, thanks to Ri-Ri’s reluctance, we got a flash of her favorite nipple petals, this time in bright pink. The superstar was headed out to pal Katy Perry‘s concert afterparty at Club Griffin in NYC and livened up her demure outfit with a cheeky addition. It’s not half as daring as her sparkly nipple-petals-with-tuxedo look of a few weeks ago, but it’s clearly a trend. Yikes. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Wow! Doesn’t Gisele Bunchen look incredible in this new photoshoot? The supermodel shows off her killer body while posing in a trenchcoat and not much else — although you may be wondering just where her pregnancy is hiding itself. Not to worry, it’s been digitally removed to, um, respect her privacy. Say again?
“Nobody is sexier or more beautiful than Gisele Bundchen in nothing but a London Fog trench coat, even with her visible baby bump. Although Gisele was photographed while pregnant, most of the shots have been retouched to respect her privacy during this wonderful and personal time in her life,” said Dari Marder, Chief Marketing Officer of London Fog.
Eh? What “visible baby bump”? Perhaps if Gisele’s privacy was of such paramount importance, she wouldn’t have posed in just a pair of heels and a come hither look? Hard to see how a little few pounds of extra bumpage on show would affect this. We’re just sayin’. [Photo: Splash News Online]
