When we saw photographs of Nicki Minaj writhing about on the sands of Hawaii, we were wondering what the hell she was up to. Then we found out that she’s actually shooting the music video for her track Starships. Since the song starts with, “Let’s go to the beach” this makes a lot more sense now. It doesn’t make it any less eye-popping though. You can’t really not gawk at Nicki with her green hair and bright pink bikini, especially because she’s putting on quite a show. As you’ll see in the pictures, the singer’s doing everything from being kittenish on her knees, to lying on and arching her back. It’s Sexy 101. Wonder how it will translate on film? Until we get to see it on celluloid … to the gallery, fab folk!
Kiernan Shipka’s life must be pretty awesome. At the age of 12, she’s just wrapped her fifth season playing Sally Draper on the record-busting Mad Men, and has a department store-size closet of haute couture which she gets to wear to glitzy Hollywood balls. She’s done more than most adults, but her parents still won’t let her watch her own series. “I’m not allowed to watch the show, apart from my own scenes,” she told Grazia Magazine. “I’ll start watching it when I’m older. I’ll have a lot of DVD marathons.” So what does she do with the time the rest of us spend endlessly watching the Draper family on Netflix Instant? Develop her killer style sense! Just check out the glam photos from her Grazia shoot. “I am a huge fashion fan. It’s a really cool way to express yourself. I’m always excited to get to set and see what I’m wearing,” she says. She has guest-blogged for Lucky, and cites Papo D’Anjo and Ralph Lauren among her favorite brands. “My style is constantly changing. At the moment I look preppy, but with an edge.”
She looked less edgy and more classy as she strolled the red carpet last night at the PaleyFest’s 2012 tribute to Mad Men in Beverly Hills. There she was reunited with her TV parents Jon Hamm and January Jones, along with fellow cast mates John Slattery, Vincent Kartheiser and Robert Morse. Show creator Matthew Weiner was also on hand, and spoke about where he sees the series going, and eventually ending. “I think the plan is for [Mad Men to run for] seven years,” he told the press panel. “Seven years sounds like the right amount. My whole thing is, I don’t want to overstay our welcome. And it’s really hard.” He cited The Sopranos as an example of what not to do with a series. “I was with The Sopranos the last three seasons of the show, and what happens is you just start running into the places where you’ve been over and over again and it just becomes impossible.” How he’s gonna paint himself out of season four’s cliffhanger is anybody’s guess. Is it March 25 yet!?
Every day we wake up, run to the calender and see if it’s finally March 25. Why do we do this? Because that’s the day Mad Men finally returns to our TV sets! It’s been over a year, and we have so many questions that need to be answered, so many characters to catch up with…and so many sexy styles to feast our eyes upon. At least the cast has been helping us out on that last part, with Jon Hamm, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks appearing in an endless stream of sizzling spreads for magazines around the world. The latest comes from from Elisabeth Moss, who appeared on the cover of Page Six Magazine yesterday looking light-years away from her dowdy Peggy Olsen alter ego.
“Sometimes you just wanna wear somethin’ real tight and show it all off,” she says, donning a trench coat, bra and not much else for most of the shoot. “Lately I’ve been in that mood.” Despite this mood, Moss says she doesn’t regret having to stick to a much more subdued wardrobe for her role on the show. “I would much rather have an interesting character to play. I didn’t get into the business to be a model.” But one look at these red hot pics shows that she could definitely be at home on the catwalk. In fact, the show boasts perhaps the most attractive cast in TV history (sorry, Golden Girls).
It’s been a long year and a half since we’ve seen Don, Betty, Peggy and Joan and all of their glamorous glory, and we’re not sure if we can take another few weeks. So to fill the Draper-shaped hole in your heart, here are some of the hottest shots of everyone’s favorite 1960s crew (sorry, Beatles). Is it March 25 yet? How about now?
Is it fair to pit Rumer Willis against Megan Fox? Absolutely. Especially because both are seasoned models as well. Megan has Armani in her kitty, while Rumer has Badgley Mischka. The ladies also turned up on two separate red carpets last night wearing a similar color palette. Megan went for this very girly, embellished nude Elie Saab frock to the New York screening of Friends With Kids. Rumer also wore a nude shade, but went in a diametrically different direction with the styling. Her plunging dress was completely bodycon and far more edgy as compared to Megan’s. She wore it to the world premiere of The Diary Of Preston Plummer at the Miami International Film Festival. Someone help us with the designer? We’d reckon it was Hervé Leger. But more importantly, whose dress do you prefer?
Everyone was looking a hot mess at the Escape to Total Awards red carpet events last night (Cee Lo Green, we’re looking at you here), but Kourtney Kardashian and former Cheetah Girl (and Rob Kardashian ex) Adrienne Bailon manage to stand out from the rest. Just like their weird ruffles stood out from the rest of their outfits! Maybe it’s just us, but we appreciate fashion risks, not the risk of accidentally suffocating yourself with your own bizarro dress.
In L.A., Kourtney’s Elizabeth collar somehow managed to look both boring and absurd, though if she wanted us to forget that she’s massively preggo, she did a good job. Our brains doesn’t even register her bump next to those frills! As for Adrienne, her awkward front frock is the only thing hovering between her and the chilly New York wind. Not that she cares, apparently. As the former Disney star told Celebuzz, “If I could come out naked, I would. This is just some fancy stuff to throw over my little naked body.” Uh…huh. Maybe we should feel grateful for that mess of fabric then. Thank you, odd beige cloth! We owe you one!
Kristen Stewart showed up at the Balenciaga Fall 2012 runway show for Paris Fashion Week today missing two of her trademarks: her beloved sneakers, and vamp boyfriend Robert Pattinson! Luckily she did remember to bring her killer sense of style, as she strutted to the show in awesome high waisted leather pants. Left over from The Runaways shoot, perhaps?
But we’ve got even more exciting news comin’ atcha from K-Stew land. The poster for her long awaited film On The Road was released yesterday, as well as some new stills from the feature! Check ‘em out in the gallery below. We’re counting down the days until the star studded Jack Kerouac adaptation hits the big screen. Are you?
Rihanna, where did you find that frosted lipstick, baseball cap, and button-down shirt tied around your waist? Were they buried in a time capsule behind your middle school? That’s the only explanation we could think of for why the outfit you wore in London today looks like it just arrived from 1997, the last year it was acceptable to wear this many shades of pale denim in one ensemble. We found love in a hopeless place, Rihanna? More like we found clothes in an old suitcase…that, again, had been buried behind your middle school.
Of course, this outfit is only marginally worse than the one you wore yesterday. We know you don’t give a bleach-spattered sweatshirt what people think about your style, but a visor, purposefully torn tee and bright white sneaks scream “junior high trip to Busch Gardens” no matter who’s wearing them. Throw in a fanny pack, a Big Gulp and an upside-down map of Orlando and you could be trailing your English class around Disney World circa 1998. Ugh, and yet you still manage to look kind of fierce. You defy the space-time continuum, RiRi.
Johnny Depp has always been on the eccentric side of the fashion spectrum. Rocking silver chains, floppily hates and blue-tinted sunglasses, the actor generally looks like the amateur magician uncle we never had. These photos of Depp out and about in New York today with a filthy fedora and discolored teeth, however, are beyond the fashion pale. Is that why Depp didn’t attend the Oscars, where his film Rango won for Best Animated Feature Film? He was getting his hat punctured and his smiled professionally browned? You can’t make us forget how hot you were in Chocolat that easily, Depp! Someone get an understanding dental hygienist and a patient milliner, stat!
We all know that the Vanity Fair Oscar Party is almost as big as the Oscar ceremony itself. And just as brights were a major Oscars 2012 trend, it was the same as the party. Rosie Huntington-Whitely wore a juicy, tangerine Antonio Berardi dress while Cameron Diaz went more orange with a Victoria Beckham number. Kate Upton, a pregnant Molly Sims, Salma Hayek, Abbie Cornish and Diane Kruger all wore shades of crimson.
It’s just a straight-up roll call of celebrities here: Elizabeth Olsen in black Christian Dior, Sofia Vergara in a white Robert Cavalli column, Brooklyn Decker in nude, beaded Valentino and Selena Gomez in Dolce & Gabbana. See what we mean? We’re not too sure about Zoe Saldana in her black, sheer Marios Schwab or January Jones in her Wes Gordon green-and-burgundy confused dress. Or Elizabeth Banks and her green-and-blue feathered Chadwick Bell dress. Jennifer Lopez wore the same designer as her Oscars dress, but this plunging, sparkling, plum version was even sexier.

Justin Timberlake, how do we put this politely? Humina humina humina! Boi-oi-oi-oooooing! Hubba hubba! JT is looking all sorts of hot on the set of Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film he’s currently shooting in New York with Carey Mulligan. Okay, so maybe we have a type, but we challenge you to argue that Justin isn’t looking his best with that beard, those glasses and that guitar. This is exactly how we felt when Beyonce got Bettie Page bangs for her “Videophone” video: if you know you can look that smoking hot, why would you ever consider going back? At least keep the hoodie, Justin! Please!
We’d also be interested to know what Amanda Seyfried thought of these pics. “I was obsessed with *NYSNC. Who wasn’t?!” Justin’s In Time costar admitted to Conan O’Brien last night. However, reveals Amanda, “[Justin] wasn’t my favorite — I didn’t even find him attractive in fact!” The Lovelace star’s boy band crush was actually JC Chasez. Yeah, he never really did it for us personally. Give him a mustache, flannel shirt and a Moleskine, however, and we can definitely talk.
