Most of us have that painful period during our teen years that we spend the rest of our life trying to forget. It’s forever known as “the awkward phase”, and photos from the era are purged from family albums in a manner that would do Stalin proud. Well, it seems that Heidi Klum never had that awkward phase. This would explain why she’s a world famous supermodel and we are not.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel tweeted a photo over the weekend showing herself as a fresh faced (and GORGEOUS) 19-year old on one of her early modeling dates. “Wow! Check out this picture from 1992,” she wrote. “One of my very first photo shoots. This is my original hair color!” Though still a teen, Klum still stares down the lens like a pro. Must be the genes. Contrary to what Maybelline wants you to think, she’s definitely born with it. And so are many other super models! Check out the gallery below for some early pix of Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Upton, and tons more lovely ladies who have literally never taken a bad photo in their entire lives. Bask in their photogenic-ness!
Paul McCartney may be turning 70 this year, but “the cute Beatle” still has no trouble attracting the ladies! Dozens of stars turned out on Friday for the L.A. premiere of Macca’s “My Valentine” music video, which the pop legend directed himself! Kristen Stewart put in an appearance, but seemed to have left her rebel roots at home as she made an entrance in a super preppy skirt and blazer. We wonder what her rock ‘n’ roll godmother Joan Jett, who showed up wearing her trademark punky black leather, must have said. But that’s just the tip of the A-list iceberg. Gwen Stefani, Miranda Kerr, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zooey Deschanel, Pam Anderson…will the hotties never cease? Beatlemania is alive and well, folks. Check out more in the gallery below!

Oooweee. It’s time to crack a window and grab a tall glass of water; you’ll need that cool spring breeze right now. Some of the hottest women to ever grace the Victoria’s Secret runway (shoot to ever walk the Earth) were born in April, making for a very different kind of heatwave than the kind we experience in July.
Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio turned 31 on April 11, and has more to celebrate than her own birthday this year. The original spokeswoman for PINK, who walked the runway just three months after giving birth to her daughter Anja, is expecting her second child with Jamie Mazur sometime this year.
Model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker has been quite the busy lady. The 5’9″ blonde, who appeared alongside Adam Sandler in last year’s Just Go With It, is spending her 25th birthday today (April 12) while traipsing the globe to promote her latest flick, Battleship.
Brit beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley went from strutting around in her undies for Victoria’s Secret and Burberry to fleeing evil aliens in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Rosie turns 24 on April 18, and you can pay homage to her bday by perusing her pics in Vogue Brazil’s April issue.
Last but certainly not least in the looks department is Orlando Bloom’s smoking wife Miranda Kerr. The Aussie model and mum of 1-year-old Flynn acquired quite some fame being the first Australian model to become a Victoria’s Secret angel. We can’t say we’re surprised she was chosen as the first. Miranda turns 29 on the 20th.
In the spirit of a catwalk showdown, we’re putting these heavenly creatures in direct competition with each other. We’re asking you to select which April birthday girl is hottest. Are you up for this decision? Here’s a gallery of Alessandra, Brooklyn, Rosie and Miranda to make your choice a little easier (actually, probably not):

We haven’t really had anything negative to say about Chanel in the past. We believe it’s bad karma and we’ve had our eye on a Chanel pochette forever. One day, people … one day. We also haven’t had anything negative to say about Miranda Kerr, because, and let’s face it, she’s a goddess and we’re mere mortals. But put Miranda on the Chanel runway at Paris Fashion Week (the show happened yesterday), and we’re definitely interjecting. Let’s just say we’re not completely sold on crystal encrusted eyebrows. Now Alicia Keys, on the other hand, was sitting on the front row at the same show and she did bling right.
We get that some folks may think that the Indian-inspired jeweled mang tikka or headpiece may be a little too much, but we think she looks fantastic. Styling is everything and we love that she kept everything neutral, including her makeup and that slicked-back hair. She also gets points for that sexy, plunging tuxedo top, which, on anyone else, would’ve looked a tad OTT, but is just right on her. So in essence: jeweled headpiece for the win. Crystallized eyebrows … not so much.

We get it. Miranda Kerr is Wonder Woman, OK? That face and that body are not of this world. How is it fair that one woman could be an angel and a super heroine at the same time? Because not only do we see Miranda strutting her stuff in her skivvies on Angel duty for Victoria’s Secret all the time, she’s now on the cover of special edition issue of Grazia Australia magazine as Wonder Woman. A couture version of Wonder Woman, that is. Mrs. Orlando Bloom is wearing a bodysuit by Alex Perry. The patriotic issue is in honor of Australia Day which is coming up on the 26th of this month — tomorrow. Light up those barbies and break out some beer. Can we also say that we love the cover line, “Kerr Pow!”

It’s that time of year again when we reflect on everything we’ve accomplished, as well as the things we probably could have done better (like eating a few less slices of pumpkin pie) and make heartfelt resolutions for the new year. After all of the indulgences of the holiday season, we normally include the plan to live a healthier lifestyle at the very top of our list. If you need motivation to get fit in 2012, look no further than our collection of the 100 hottest bikini photos of 2011. It’s sure to inspire you to finally use that gym membership!
We’ve ranked the top 10 hottest bikini clad ladies, and included another 90 wildly sexy bikini shots, in no particular order. Enjoy!

Terry Richardson‘s work is not for everyone, but we have to admit that he’s made Miranda Kerr look pretty awesome in this shot. But that’s also probably because it’s near impossible to make Miranda look anything less than stellar. We’re not sure what the shoot was for — maybe just for his personal portfolio? If you’d like to see the full-length shot of Miranda in all its lissome glory, you’ll have to click after the jump. You may have a certain, inexplicable urge to hit the gym after, be warned.

The Museum of Modern Art’s Fourth Annual Film benefit, A Tribute to Pedro Almodovar, had celebrities lined up to pay homage to the Spanish director. A few of the stars had been to the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards the previous night, making this second round of dress-up all the more impressive. Two nights out and we’re half dead under our charcoal face masks, but not these ladies.Â Blake Lively,Â Chloe Moretz,Â Anna Wintour,Â Drew Barrymore,Â Emma Stone and Sarah Jessica ParkerÂ all wore Chanel, whileÂ Miranda KerrÂ was rocking a bizarre, patterned Peter PilottoÂ dress. Drew also brought her latest boyfriend, Will Kopelman. The evening included video messages to Almodovar from friends Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas, as well as montage of highlights from his films.
We know you want to see what everyone wore, so go ahead and check out our gallery.
There’s not much we can really say with this post because it’s all about the visuals. The 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place yesterday at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York, and all our favorite models, including Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes,Â Adriana Lima and Miranda Kerr strutted their stuff. We did miss seeingÂ Heidi Klum, who retired as a Victoria’s Secret Angel last year.Â The music performances took it up a notch too — that’s if a Victoria’s Secret show can ever be taken up a notch? Jay-Z and Kanye West doubled up on stage and performed “Stronger” together. Adam Levine and Maroon 5 also performed, and Levine cozied up to model and girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna while singing “Moves Like Jagger.” You couldn’t miss Nicki Minaj either, with her frothy pink wig and day-glo clothing.
But we’re keeping you from the pictures, and for that we apologize. Knock yourselves out, guys. It’s all in there!

Orlando Bloom, you are killing us here! We clearly already have tiny person fever, if our reaction to the sex of Babyonce is any indication, but seeing the Pirates of the Caribbean star smooching his son Flynn is over the line. Do you want us to swoon, Orlando? Because we are thisclose to collapsing in a pile of rainbow hearts and kisses. Oh wait, and you framed your love letters with your model wife Miranda Kerr? Take your tiny little rainboots and your adorable dad sweater and keep on walking.
