For most of us, Alicia Silverstone defined 90s style. Or rather, her fabulous character Cher from the classic Clueless did! The plaid skirts, the berets, those sunglasses…everything about it makes us want to throw on some acid washed jeans, pound a Surge, jump into our Volkswagon New Beetle and blare “Steal My Sunshine” as loud as we can. People did that stuff, right? Was that just us? That’s what was so great about the 90s: It was a lawless time when you could totally do your own thing, like wearing white bell bottoms and a cowboy hat, a leather jump suit, or a leopard print see-through blouse. It didn’t matter!
And trust us, Alicia did all of those things. We’ve got the proof in the gallery below! The lovely Ms. Silverstone turns 36 today, and spends much of her time with her boy Bear Blu, and feeding him like a momma bird by spitting chewed food into his mouth. There’s a sentence we never thought we’d write! But she’s never far from her movie past. She has a recurring role on Suburgatory as the love interest of her former Clueless costar Jeremy Sisto! The universe wants them together, you guys!
In honor of Alicia’s big day, we’ve assembled her 20 most awesomely crazy looks from that fashion free-for-all that we call the 90s. Enjoy!
Gwen Stefani is just a girl…with absolutely fantastic abs. Ok, she’s obviously a lot more than that. But seriously, she’s got one of the all-time great six-packs. And now that she’s back with the triumphant return of her band, there’s No Doubt that we’re going to be seeing them a LOT more (see what we did there?). 2012 has been a huge year for the platinum blonde rocker and mother of two. She made her long-awaited return to music after six years with No Doubt’s new record Push And Shove, giving the world a badly needed dose of ska-pop. But that’s not even the half of it! The first lady of Harijuku hosted a fundraiser with first lady of the United States Michelle Obama in August, and last month she hit up the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas along side P!nk. But despite her busy schedule, she’s apparently still found enough time to do approximately 8 thousand crunches and sit-ups day, because that’s what it has to take to get her washboard looking so fine. So in honor of Gwen’s 43rd birthday, we’ve assembled her 25 most Ab-Tastic looks of all time. Head down to the gallery below and take a look!

Last week Carrie Underwood made a 12-year old boy’s wildest dreams come true by bringing him up onstage and giving him his first kiss. Our first thought was “Awww,” but very quickly followed up with “Damn, lucky kid!” We know, she’s married to hockey player Mike Fisher. But who isn’t a little (or a lot) in love with the record busting platinum blonde country singer?! Carrie has been winning hearts and awards all over the world since she burst onto the scene back in 2004 after winning the fourth season of American Idol. Notoriously hard-nosed judge Simon Cowell predicted that she would go on to outsell all other A.I. vets, and that’s pretty much exactly what happened! Her most recent album Blown Away dropped in May and has already been certified platinum and shot to number one on the Billboard charts. A few weeks back the superstar recorded a stellar acoustic set for our Unplugged series, and now we wait with baited breath until 4 PM this afternoon when it premieres on VH1. We can hardly wait, but to hold us over we’ve assembled this gallery of Carrie’s best super hot styles through the years. Enjoy!

Expelliarmus! There go Emma Watson’s clothes. Just kidding! But studious Hermione Granger would have her knickers in real twist if she caught a glimpse of what her real-life-counterpart has been rocking lately. The 22-year-old star has really been pushing the fashion envelope in recent years, appearing on the cover of styles mags like Glamour showing off her smoldering new look. Earlier this month, she attended the L.A. premiere of her new film The Perks of Being a Wallflower in a barely-there dress that was moments away from a “wardrobe malfunction.” She wears even less on the set of her new movie Bling Ring, where Watson rocks a fierce tramp stamp.
While we can’t deny that Emma usually keeps it classy, we love to see her show off her hot bod. She’s sure come a long way from Hogwarts! Even though the cape and striped tie may still work for Halloween, we prefer some of Emma’s bolder looks. So in honor of Emma Watson’s new film opening nationwide today, we give you her 20 scandalous looks that would make Hermione blush. Enjoy!

Christina Milian was criminally left out of out Summer 2012 VH1 bikini awards, and we’re still not totally sure why that happened. Probably something as simple as not being seen out and about in a two-piece when we were putting the competition together. But we truly feel horrible, because she totally has what it takes to go head to head with Beyonce for the bikini crown! Just like Queen Bey, she’s a talented actress with a singer’s voice and the physique of a model. That’s why she kills it at all of those professions. There’s always next year, Christina!
Despite not tasting bikini royalty, Christina’s had a pretty sweet life. She’s appeared in movies like Ghosts Of Girlfriend’s Past and Pulse, and done turns in classic TV shows like Sister Sister, Clueless, Charmed, and Smallville. She even lived the dream by marrying fellow R&B star The-Dream! Sadly they divorced a short time later, but their union produced baby Violet, who is hands down the cutest thing we’ve ever seen. Sorry Kim Kardashian’s new kitten, them’s the breaks. The lovely Christina turns 31 today, so to celebrate/apologize for the bikini awards oversight, we’ve compiled her 15 sexiest swimsuits of all time!

It’s a big weekend for vets of the Harry Potter series! Emma Watson’s new movie Perks of Being A Wallflower opened yesterday, and today Tom Felton turns 25! The little toe-headed kids we knew as evil Draco Malfoy has grown up into quite the handsome dude, showing up to red carpet events looking like a walking GQ cover. His latest film The Apparition scared the crap out of us in theaters last August, and it looks like his next movie Night Wolf will definitely do the same. What is it with this guy and freaky flicks, huh? Too many years hanging around with he-who-shall-not-be-named, we guess.
On top of his acting skills, Tom’s also a musician and songwriter. In 2010 he released a collection of original songs called In Good Hands. He’s also flexed his comedy muscle with appearances in Get Him To The Greek and British sketches alongside Justin Bieber, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Keira Knightley among many other famous faces. In honor of his quarter century on the planet, we’ve assembled his 25 most handsome looks of all time. Enjoy!

It’s been a bit of a long, slow climb to the top for Tom Hardy, but as the Lawless star turns 35 today, we think his success couldn’t come at a better time. After breaking into the scene as a model and stage actor, the Londoner starred in a number of British TV movies — notably making many swoon with his Heathcliff in 2009′s Wuthering Heights for ITV. Most of us on this side of the pond were still unaware of his talents, and those stunning blue-green eyes, until his role in 2010′s Inception. That basically opened the floodgates for him — he’s since starred in Warrior, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, This Means War, The Dark Knight Rises and Lawless. Next up, he’ll take over Mel Gibson’s titular role in Mad Max: Fury Road. But after seeing him rap to his young son, smile sheepishly after winning a modeling contract and play paintball with Reese Witherspoon, some of us are hoping he’s got some romantic comedy roles in the works too. In the meantime, let’s all wish him a happy birthday and fantasize that he’s starring in our own romance by perusing his 35 hottest looks:

The iconic rapper Missy Elliott is ready to make a triumphant return to music today following a four-year hiatus. It’s been way too long since “Shake Your Pom Pom,” and we’re counting down the minutes until 7 p.m., when she drops not just one, but two new singles! In honor of her comeback we’ve decided to give you a look into the influential rapper’s closet of Supa Dupa Fly looks. Whether it was wearing a big black latex balloon as jumpsuit or full-out Adidas outfit, Missy has always brought us some of the most outrageous clothing the entertainment world has ever known. Today we see the insane looks from Nicki Minaj, but let us never forget about Missy E’s flamboyant jumpsuits and out-of-control costumes. We’ll be reminded of how she can push the limits and “Work It” soon enough with the new album that’s on its way.
Missy has made a few appearances on songs in the past few years like on Demi Lovato’s “All Night Long,” Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (Remix),” and J. Cole’s “Nobody’s Perfect.” Let’s hope we get more looks to add to the Missy’s craziest looks repertoire with this new era of her solo career!

This is always a tough one, guys. You’re supposed to take risks at the MTV Video Music Awards. You’re supposed to be a rock star. But sometimes that backfires. Sometimes you wind up looking like a Christmas tree, and sometimes you’re so scared of winding up on a list like this that you dress like you’re attending a ladies’ luncheon. That’s why we really, really hate to list some of the people we love both here. Taylor Swift, you looked lovely in that white suit — but like you were about to attend an event with your adoptive Kennedy family. And Alicia Keys, you were so close with most of your golden goddess look, until the part where it swallowed your legs. Katy Perry’s gown also could have been improved by a little tweaking. We would have been OK with Ezra Miller looking like a long-lost member of the Black Crowes — he is so awesome in Perks of Being a Wallflower that we love everything he does — but it was distracting from the beauty of Emma Watson’s outfit. And we’ve already mentioned Miley Cyrus borrowing Pink’s steez, but we haven’t yet talked about how she also seemed to be inspired by Morticia Addams. We’re also reluctant to put Nicki Minaj here, since she’s always in a category of her own, but there just seemed to be no unifying theme to her lace bodysuit chauffeur thingy. Our point is, nothing you’ll see here is unforgivable. It’s just, well, disappointing? Peruse the gallery and tell us what you think!

Sure, we watch the MTV Video Music Awards to see our favorite artists pick up a trophy or two for their work in the past year and to watch some phenomenal performances. But there’s a big reason it’s way more fun to watch than, say, the Grammys: Having this many stars in such a party-hard atmosphere always leads to some of the best unscripted moments on TV. A whole lot of those moments are simply fun, but often they turn into car-wreck spectacles. Of course, the latter is what we end up remembering in the decades that follow. From Andrew Dice Clay’s off-color jokes that got him banned from MTV for life to Michael Jackson’s misunderstood birthday cake to Kanye West’s infamous “Imma let you finish” speech, we love those moments that make us cringe in our seats, anticipating the embarrassment the perpetrators probably won’t feel until the morning after. While we eagerly await a whole new batch, here are our top 10 most cringeworthy moments of VMA history:
