The timing and mood of the Teen Choice Awards make the show a great place to see young Hollywood and music stars show off their relaxed, beachy best. Unfortunately, it seems like too many of these stars seem to think it’s a good time to give their stylists the day off and get a little TOO relaxed. A lot of the celebs you’ll see in the gallery below are not offensively dressed, necessarily. It’s just that we wish Selena Gomez, Nikki Reed, Darren Criss and the like would have taken bigger risks and had more fun with their outfits. Others, especially lesser known stars like Crystal Reed or frequent risk-takers like TCA co-hosts Kevin McHale and Demi Lovato, took their risks a little too far. We don’t want to punish you for trying, guys. It’s just that someone had to make this list.

I don’t know if it was when we saw that Ellen DeGeneres‘ best guests ever Sophia Grace and Rosie were in the audience, or when Kevin McHale and Demi Lovato started sharing embarrassing bits (boy band footage and stage pics!) about each other’s early years as child stars in Dallas, but you could tell early on that the 2012 Teen Choice Awards was going to be full of cuteness. Here are our favorite adorable moments from the show. Let us know yours in the comments!
“This is the best thing that’s ever happened!” Sophia Grace squealed as she and Rosie received miniature surfboards for Choice Web Star. She is the best thing that’s ever happened, actually.
Our favorite Wizards of Waverly Place star has finally reached her 20s! Selena Gomez has grown up right before our eyes. We’ve loved her from from her years of flaunting a punky-girly-rock style on Disney Channel to rocking gorgeous floor-length gowns in music videos for songs like “Who Says.” She’s also graced the red carpet time and time again in some of the hottest evening wear that we totally covet (sometimes, maybe even more than we covet that boyfriend of hers).
We also love how Selena is more than just a gorgeous figure and pretty face. She’s become so invested with UNICEF and concerned about the devastating impact that lack of safe water has on children all over the world. And it’s great to see how her relationships with BFFs Taylor Swift and Ashley Tisdale are so important to her. But back to her wardrobe, we adore practically everything she wears! So much so, that to celebrate her 20th, we want to take a look back at some of her hottest looks.

When Project Runway: All Stars premiered back in January we thought it would fill the void left by the original. But as hard as host and supermodel Angela Lindvall tried, she just couldn’t compete with Heidi Klum and her aufiderzein-ing authority. Luckily for us, Project Runway is back with judges Nina Garcia and Michael Kors, plus new (and crazy) designers. Speaking of crazy, it seems Harvey Weinstein and Co. upped the kooky factor with this tenth season’s contestants. We had no fewer than ten WTF moments before their hastily designed garments hit the stage in the middle of Times Square. We’re giving you the top five here, but let us know in the comments what you thought of Project Runway‘s return.
Celebrities have never been shy about showing off their bodies, vacations or friends on Twitter, and sometimes they really go over the line. But there’s one thing they can never share enough of, if you ask us: babies pictures! Earlier this week, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Lily Aldridge gave us the first glimpse of her nearly 1-month-old daughter with husband and Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, Dixie Pearl. Dixie’s Twitter debut features her tiny feet in pink, bunny rabbit footie pajamas. Can we get a resounding awwww? There is no mistaking that this pic is precious, but it does come as a bit of a tease. When do we get to see this little munchkin’s face?
Following in the footsteps of Lily and other celebs who have chosen to announce the birth of their children via Twitter, Curly Sue star Alisan Porter didn’t waste any time tweeting a pic of her baby boy, Mason, born only yesterday. Other stars like Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson and Alessandra Ambrosio have also recently introduced their bundles of joy on Twitter. These adorable twitpics confirm that celebrities’ children are truly genetically blessed and living the G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S life. We look forward to the possibility of a future modeling or acting career for these youngsters, but for now, we are just happy to get to see their lovable looks. Take a look at some of the cutest celebrity baby Twitpics. They are bound to melt your heart!
We’ll let you in on a little secret that everyone at San Diego Comic-Con already knows: Nerds are super sexy. And The super sexy can be huge nerds. Just take Australian beauty Rachael Taylor (Transformers), who was there to promote her fall TV show 666 Park Avenue. You wouldn’t guess it, but she’s huge into comic books and horror films. And then there are the men and women who appear in the gallery below. Many of them are geeky enough that we have NO IDEA what their costumes are supposed to be (obscurity is a big badge of honor at SDCC), but they are also smoking hot in their bustiers and horns. We’ve identified a few things that up the sexy factor of a Comic-Con costume, so you can plan for next year:
Gender-swapping (see: Lady Joker, Lady Wookie)
We ranked our faves. Peruse the pics and if you feel like it, tell us what these people are supposed to be.

Ke$ha topped the list of our 20 Worst Celebrity Tattoos a few weeks back when she proudly displayed her inner lip ink reading “Suck It” on instagram. But now the dollar-signed-one might have some competition in Miley Cyrus, who was seen today showing off her new Theodore Roosevelt-inspired tattoo. We say “might,” because honestly we’re not sure how to feel about it. Body art inspired by our 26th president isn’t something we come across on a regular basis. On one hand, we guess it’s a pretty cool quote taken from a 1910 speech in which he said “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” But on the other hand…what? And furthermore, WTF? We know you’re just being Miley, but damn. Maybe she’s still feeling the patriotism from her 4th of July festivities. Head on down to the gallery below to see more celebrity tattoos that left us scratching our heads!

Guys, today is the day Magic Mike comes out and changes our lives forever. Okay probably not, but we do get to see Channing Tatum strip on the big screen, and that still feels pretty important. Despite the way everyone woman (and, let’s be honest, man) is foaming at the mouth to see Alex Pettyfer and the gang take if off this weekend, it turns out Magic Mike is only the most recent in a long line of awkward, dramatic, sexy, humiliating moments in male movie nudity. From Jason Segel‘s weepy reveal in Forgetting Sarah Marshall to basically every movie Ewan McGregor has ever done, enjoy what we consider to be the top 10 moments in cinematic dude nakedness. Though…aren’t they all pretty excellent? Warning: There will be butts.
According to the Washington Post, the prolific screenwriter, director and author Nora Ephron died of leukemia today at the age of 71, hours after her representative reported that the author was “gravely ill.”
Whether it was through her classic rom-coms like Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail, dramas like Silkwood or her essay collection I Feel Bad About My Neck, three-time Oscar-nominee Ephron almost certainly pulled at your heartstrings at some point in the past two decades. It’s just statistics. To commemorate her amazing heart and wite, we gathered a few of our favorite Ephron movie moments. You know you’re going to cry anyway, so just go ahead. We know we will be too.

Sometimes our jobs are very tough around here. We’re a little more than halfway through 2012, and as we very studiously looking back at all the year’s most newsworthy and RT-ready Twitpic’d, Instagram’d and Facebooked photos, we started to feel a little nostalgic. It seems that many famous people have stopped accidentally sharing naked photos of themselves this year. I mean, good for them for learning, but bad for us. Still, there was no shortage of controversial pics — many thanks to Rihanna, who doesn’t care what we think of that white powder or that possibly racist threat against Karrueche Tran. We had some headline-makers, like Miley Cyrus’ non-engagement ring and Leann Rimes’ “fun” shooting range photos. And there certainly were some steamy snaps — from Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale, usual suspects Coco and Kim Kardashian, and even newcomers to the scene like Paulina Gretzky. Not many guys got in on the action, but Usher is worth about a dozen regular men, right? Anyway, enough gabbing, let’s get on to the photos!
