A lot of celebrities had double duty on Saturday night as there were a number of Super Bowl parties happening in New Orleans, most notably the GQ Super Bowl Party with Lil Wayne performing and the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl, where Justin Timberlake brought Jay-Z onstage. The celebs at the earlier party were pretty casual, but they cleaned up quite nicely for the evening to-do. Except Josh Hutcherson and Chace Crawford, who showed up in denim and a baseball cap and a lot of facial scruff, respectively. They should have taken style cues from Ryan Kwanten and Matt Bomer who both nailed it in sharp suits.
Of course, our eyes were trained on one very gorgeous Ian Somerhalder who turned out in a simple black shirt and jeans. Simple … but perfect, as always. The two ladies in attendance also did quite nicely. Kate Upton slicked on some red lipstick, twisted her hair up in a messy updo and slid into some skinny black pants, a leather bomber jacket and a pair of dark cherry-pointed pumps. Can’t really go wrong with that, right? Hayden Panettiere also took on a three-piece combination but topped hers with a white blazer and beautifully ironed shiny hair. The piece de resistance was her neon orange pumps. It takes a lot to upstage Kate, but we think Hayden managed it. Have a look at our gallery below to see full-length pictures of everyone in attendance.
We never cease to be amazed by how photographer Terry Richardson manages to get gorgeous ladies to do the sleaziest things in front of his camera. Compared to some of his models, Beyonce was relatively tame for her “Miss Millenium” cover shoot for GQ, the fruits of which we first saw last week. Judging by the interview Bey gives in the magazine, she keeps a tight control on all things image-related, so she’s not about to put herself in any kind of compromising, Terry Richardson-esque situations. That’s not to say she isn’t hot as hell in it. And as you watch the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot above, you can also tell she had a whole lot of fun romping around in cropped tops and undies, and jumping on the bed with a football to symbolize her Super Bowl Halftime gig.
Ed. note:After the leaked pic went viral, GQ finally gave in and posted the official version of the cover.
Move over, Rihanna. Step aside, Kate Upton. Because their brand of sexy just paled in comparison to what Beyonce is bringing to the table. Earlier today, this new GQcover of the singer that was supposed to be revealed as the magazine’s February lead leaked online and is in the process of going completely viral. What can we even say about this picture (that for legal reasons, we can’t show you anymore)? Steamy doesn’t even begin to cover it. We’re just amazed at the Beyonce-body that seems to defy genetics, considering she had baby Blue Ivy just last year. Not a hint of mummy-tummy because that stomach is as washboard as it can get. This is also one of the sexiest photographs we’ve ever seen of Bey, who, as we all know, can werk it like it’s never been werked before, but never looks anywhere close to trashy. So to see miles of skin and a purposeful hint of under-boob is a bit jaw-dropping. Her face and that tumbling hair looks beautiful and she’s got curves that makes those leopard-print briefs look better than they actually are. But we want to know what your reaction to this shot is? Do you think she looks hot or is it too over-the-top and in-your-face? Let us know in the comments section! And check the bigger version below: Read more…
Oooooh! Now we see. Not that we didn’t think Girls‘ Adam Driver was talented before, but after today, we finally get him. You get what we’re saying? You picking up what we’re putting down? We get him in our pants. Driver’s recent and extremely awesome GQ spread did the heavy lifting, though his cameo in Lincoln didn’t hurt either. That boy looks good in Civil War-era kepi cap! We hope Driver was able to take it home and transfer it to his Girls wardrobe. Adam could wear that hat around Williamsburg and no one would bat an eye.
Another day, another magazine cover featuring a virtually naked Rihanna. “GQ’s man of the year?! When will your fave? #histoRih #GQ,” RiRi tweeted while leaking her December GQ cover earlier today. Now, we’re not saying Rihanna would never slip into a pantsuit on the cover of Women’s Wear Daily or anything. It would just have to be a pantsuit featuring assless chaps and a flap to show off her Isis tattoo. As we may have mentioned one or twenty thousand times, however, if we had Rihanna’s body, we’d get Marie Claire on the phone so fast and demand a naked cover. Or Forbes maybe. Even Cat Fancy, if they’d have us, which they would because we would look so crazy good. That hair alone!
As you might recall, RiRi has stripped down for GQ thrice before (as well as for every other magazine ever), but this new cover is on par with the painted-on Daisy Dukes red-headed Rihanna sported on Rolling Stone last year. No, seriously. The Daisy Dukes were actually painted on. If we remember correctly, they were also melting. Remember? If you don’t, check out our gallery of Rihanna’s 20 Sexiest Magazine Covers Of All Time. Obviously none will be this amazing, but still. Still.
Taylor Swift and Emma Watson aren’t the only celebrities getting double covers in the same month around these parts. Now that the twenty third installment of the James Bond series, Skyfall, is due to release later this month, the martini-swillin’, lady-lovin’ spy is everywhere. And by that we mean, the actor who plays “Bond, James Bond,” Daniel Craig, is everywhere. Hallelujah, right? This month, he covers both British GQ and Vanity Fair‘s November issues, who both have special Bond covers adorning their faces. The magazines have come a little late to the party — Esquire released their Bond October cover with Craig on it back in August! Still, we’re not complaining. The more the merrier! And with Craig hosting Saturday Night Live this week, we’re basically in heaven.
GQ’s really done it in style, though. To mark the 50th anniversary of Bond and the movie’s release, they’ve got special covers for previous James Bonds, before Craig took on the role. Sir Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Sir Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan all have their own — see the slideshow here. Craig brings up the other Bonds in the amazing Vanity Fairinterview saying, “What I’m doing is not what Pierce was doing, and Pierce wasn’t doing what Roger Moore was doing, or what Sean was doing, or what Timothy [Dalton] was doing. Things have changed. It’s just kind of the ride of it. Pierce used to say that it’s like being responsible for a small country. It’s kind of like you have to look after it diplomatically. I kind of get that, but I can’t really say that’s my deal. I’m not going to be the poster boy for this. Although I am the poster boy.” Our favorite bit is when he also reveals, “It’s amazing how many times I’ve sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over. And it’s like, Really? It’s 11 o’clock! Cheers! I’m not going to drink it.” Not going to lie. We’d drink it if Craig was sitting across the booth.
Sadly, Joseph Gordon-Levitt had to take time off from looking lip-bitingly gorgeous on the cover of GQ today to correct the magazine on details surrounding the death of his brother Burning Dan. The only problem? JGL’s correction only made us more confused as to what happened to his sibling, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 36.
JGL posted on his Tumblr today, “I’m writing this because I have a problem with what their article says about my brother. I’ll be honest, it really made me feel terrible. Here’s a quote: ‘…the elder Gordon-Levitt died of an alleged drug overdose in 2010. “It was an accident” is all Joe will say about that.’” Said the Dark Knight Rises star, “Using the word ‘alleged’ technically allows the writer to say whatever she wants. The ‘allegations’ to which she must be referring were made by a handful of gossip websites. They are factually incorrect according to the coroner’s office and the police department. I don’t like publicly speaking about my brother’s death, but I’m making an exception to correct this irresponsible claim.” We completely understand JGL wanting to dispel any misinformation floating around in the blogosphere, but…why not then clarify what actually happened?
We have been dedicating so much of our erotic energy (approximately 87%) to the upcoming release of Magic Mike, we haven’t been paying adequate attention to all the non-Tatum-related hotness out there on the internet. Luckily after Justin Theroux’s insane 8-pack slammed us in the face over at Us Weekly this afternoon, the Hemsworth brothers gently reminded us to get our heads back in the game. To wit, have you seenChris Hemsworth‘s smokingGQ photo shoot? Good. Lawd. “[My body image has] helped me get a job, sure. But you hope it’s not the only thing that helped,” the Snow White and The Huntsman actor laughed in his interview. Right, there’s also Chris’s hair. Haha, just kidding. There’s also his body.
Not to be out-hunked (an offense no hottie can publicly tolerate), Deadline posted the first photos of Liam Hemsworth and Dwayne Johnson in Empire State. The movie is allegedly about “the true story of two pals in the 1980s who stole all the money stored at an armored car company,” but as far as we can tell the photos are about Miley Cyrus laughing all the way to the bank. The gorgeous fiance bank. We’re going to get a loan from that bank if it kills us.
You’d think that Kate Upton would be an old pro when it comes to wearing swimsuits. She’s been modeling for the likes of Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated for years, and now she even designs her own! But barely there bathing suits can still be pretty temperamental, no matter how much experience you have. In Kate’s interview with GQ, she tells a wardrobe malfunction that occured during the sizzling cover photo session. And although it was nightmare for her, it’s probably every dude’s dream.
“We were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I’m wearing a one-piece,” she explains in the upcoming July issue. “And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier—it was so embarrassing.”
Elsewhere in the revealing piece (*rim shot*), the model opened up about the epic “Teach Me How To Dougie” viral video that made her famous. The clip shows Kate gettin’ down at a Clippers game last spring, and has been playing on loop in our minds ever since. Although it looked like she didn’t need anyone to teach her how to Dougie, she insists that she’s a rookie. “That was my first Dougie!” Kate’s a woman of many talents. Check out more from her GQ spread in the gallery below, and get a behind the scenes look at the photo session in the video above! No, it doesn’t feature the wardrobe malfunction, but we have a feeling that you’ll enjoy anyway.
There are few people who can do the intense stare as well as Andrew Garfield can. Remember this Spider-man photo? Emma Stone didn’t stand a chance! We’re very happy to report that a version of that famous stare is now … staring … straight at us off the cover of GQ UK’s June cover. We’re giggling over the fact that the cover line is “Fly Guy,” but can’t deny the fact that it is the truth. Andrew Garfield is pretty flippin’ fly.
We’re also loving the snippets of the interview that have been revealed so far. The one that made us laugh out loud was when he described what happened during a moment where he was about to Google search himself. Apparently, his dog put his paw on Garfield’s hand, almost as if he was admonishing him. Garfield says, “[It was as if he was saying] ‘No! Don’t do it!’ and I looked at him and said, ‘All right. You’re right.’ And I didn’t.” There’s another quote that also made our ovaries explode so, fair warning. When asked if Garfield ever wanted kids, he replies, “I’d love to be a dad! I’d love to. But I want to be sure of what my value system is before that happens.” Emma is one lucky, lucky woman.
