Today is Christian Bale’s 39th birthday, so we knew we had better make him a really awesome post or else face his wrath. Just kidding! The actor supremo has been up to so much good in these past few years, we pretty much forgot all about that whole on-set rant thing. First, there are the sweet blockbusting films he’s given us recently, from his Academy-Award winning performance in The Fighter, to his most recent butt-kicking turn as the black-caped one in The Dark Knight Rises. But that’s not even the half of it: Christian has been making the rounds on his off-camera hours, helping out sick children, injured adults, and other less fortunate folks. And that’s just the start! To celebrate the big-hearted Oscar winner’s birthday, we’ve picked 10 ways that he actually is a real life super hero, right up there with Batman. Head down to the gallery below and check ‘em out!

They don’t call him “Glambert” for nothing! Ever since exploding onto the small screen with American Idol back in 2009, Adam Lambert has taken to the stage in a big way! The massively talented singer and songwriter has a massive wardrobe to match, bringing theatricality and style back to rock ‘n’ roll. Who else could get away with a crushed velvet top hat, purple feathers and paisley pants…all in the same outfit!? That’s a skill in itself, people.
On top of his awesome music and unparalleled fashion sense, he’s a passionate advocate for LGBT rights and has raised thousands of dollars for student arts programs across the country. How much do we love this guy? Enough to painstakingly search through all of his outfits to find the 25 most glamtastic, in honor of his 31st birthday! So head on down to the gallery below to see all the ways Adam Lambert puts the “glam” into Glambert. Enjoy, and happy birthday, Adam!

Alicia Keys has been making hits for over 10 years now, and you know what? She has not changed a bit! The piano playing soul-stress burst onto the scene with her incredible 2001 album Songs In A Minor (we’ve yet to figure out if they’re actually in that key), and she hasn’t gone away since. In the past decade she’s added “wife” and “mother” to her resume after having baby Egypt with husband Swizz Beatz. But even with those added roles she’s still busting out the hits, most recently with this fall’s smash “This Girl Is On Fire.” Hell, she might as well be singing about herself! Today the star turns 32 years old, so in honor of her birthday, stellar career, and awesomely unique style, we’ve assembled her 32 most sizzling outfits from over the years. We hope you enjoy it. Happy birthday, Alicia!

Zooey Deschanel turns the big three three today, and what better way to celebrate the birth of our favorite be-banged sitcom star then to pay homage to the 33 most twee Zooey D. moments? Just so we’re clear, we are all about tweeness, particularly Zooey’s. Like the woman herself told Glamour, “We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f—ing feminist and wear a f—ing Peter Pan collar. So f—ing what?” Never change for anyone, lady! Never change.
1. & 2. Zooey’s Golden Globe Nail Game. Both 2013….
Betty White turns 91 years young today, and she is still without question the cutest human being in the known universe, ever, of all time, period, end of story. Don’t believe us? Then just head down to the gallery below and check out our collection of her 25 most adorable photos. Sure there are a zillion cute pics, but if we didn’t cap it at 25 we might be working on it until her 92nd birthday. So 25 it is!
Betty’s a lover of puppies, hot dogs, Christmas, stuffed animals, romps in the snow and (apparently) shirtless buff dudes. What’s not to love?! This year the world was gifted with a wax statue of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl (sorry Rue), thus giving us twice the sweetness – but nothing compares to the real thing. So here’s to you Betty, and may you be here for another 91 birthdays! And we’d like to take this opportunity to ask if you’d consider adopting our entire editorial department. Please?

We’re a little nervous writing this post, because we’re scared that if we showed a little too much interest in the fab style and lovely looks of Michelle Obama, we’re going to get some kind of FBI file opened up on us. We don’t want to push Barack’s jealousy button! And we’re not going to reveal her age either, because that would definitely land us in some kind of federal prison. But today is our beloved first lady’s birthday, and we wanted to do something special to mark to occasion. That’s why we’ve gotten together our 20 favorite fierce styles of our flawless first female of fashion! From elegant evening wear at state functions, all the way through to presiding over the White House Easter egg hunt, Michelle has always lead the nation in awesome attire. Happy birthday, Michelle! Sorry we couldn’t have something cooler like jets flying in formation. Maybe next year!

Back in September, Nina Dobrev told us that she plans on playing a teenager for as long as she can, and we think the Vampire Diaries star, who turns 24 today, can do that for at least a couple more years. On the other hand, now that we’ve seen her play not one but two undead vixens on TVD, she’s going to have a hard time convincing anyone she’s an innocent young thing. Especially not after all those smoldering onscreen looks between her and real-life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. Not that this should be a loss — after all, she must be having so much more fun now than as a weak human cheerleader. And not that we’re jealous of her or anything.
Let’s all wish Nina a happy birthday as we browse through her 24 most seductive looks.
One year ago today, Beyonce’s baby bubble burst, bestowing the beautiful Blue Ivy Carter onto a breathless world (sorry we ran out of B’s at the end)! Jay-Z and Queen Bey’s little girl went on to dominate 2012, despite the fact that she wasn’t doing much more than eating mashed carrots and figuring out how to lift her head.
Clearly she got her dominating skills from her parents, and probably her Godmother Oprah Winfrey. Not that we’re judging, but we’ve been wondering what kind if path this mega-star offspring will take when she grows up and can actually…you know, do stuff. We’ve done our homework, and we’ve broken it down into the 5 basic Super-Couple Spawn varieties. Let us explain.
Super-Couple Spawn Variety 1: Parent Version 2.0
Like mother like daughter/like father like son, these famous folks get a leg-up with their name and try to stage a repeat performance of their parents’ success. Fame is a family business after all, but sometimes lightening doesn’t strike twice and the results are pretty mediocre. Examples of that include: Nancy Sinatra, Colin Hanks, Lisa Marie Presley, and Julian Lennon. But sometimes they do a pretty awesome job. Just like Goldie Hawn’s daughter Kate Hudson, the multi-talented Smith kids Jayden and Willow, Donald Sutherland’s badass boy Kiefer, Kirk Douglas‘ slightly less bad-ass boy Michael, and Judy Garland’s triple-threat daughter Liza Minelli.
Bradley Cooper turns 38 today, so now seemed like as good a time as any to remind you guys that though the Silver Linings Playbook star may be a Sexiest Man Alive alumnus, he’s also never stopped being just a regular guy. Also, he will never stop being adorable Will from Alias, no matter how many times he may melt us with those baby blues and make us weak in the knees with those perfectly sculpted shoulders. Sometimes he gets sweaty at the gym, sometimes he has terrible facial hair or hat head, sometimes he breaks up with his unbelievably hot girlfriends and hangs out with his mom instead. Er, nope, all that doesn’t add up to us being able to date him though, does it? Oh, well. We’ll just wish Bradley a happy birthday and pretend he’s attainable as we look at these 20 examples of him just being a regular guy … until he goes and wins an Oscar or something this year.

Tony Danza (or maybe Judith Light) may have been the boss on Who’s The Boss, by Alyssa Milano was always the best. For those of you 90s babies out there, the gorgeous grownup actress that we all know today got her start as the adorable Samantha Micelli on the long running sitcom. Teen super-stardom soon followed, complete with a record deal, made for TV specials starring Jason Bateman, and shoulder rubbing with a baby Neil Patrick Harris, Corey Feldman and other Reagan-era royalty. Don’t believe us? We’ve got the evidence right here! She’s long since moved on to more “adult” roles on screens small and large. She appeared for two seasons on Melrose Place before finding a new generation of fans as Phoebe Halliwell on Charmed. Most recently, she was one of the approximately three billion A-listers who appeared in the rom-com to end all rom-coms, New Years Eve. It’s hard to believe, but Alyssa turns 40 years old today! To celebrate, we’ve decided to take a look back at 20 awesome throwback photos from her Who’s The Boss era. Enjoy!
