Is there anything more perfect than Oscar nominee Brad Pitt? He’s got the perfect wife, perfect career, perfect kids, perfect smile, perfect muscular physique and … let’s stop there, because while we could go on all day, we’re pretty sure none of you need convincing. Even his fashion missteps are perfect, in their own special way! It’s true. We can’t entirely fault Brad for those long bleached blonde locks (it was the ’90s) or even the Kate Gosselin-styled ‘do (also ’90s!). And no one else could rock a scraggly, dreaded beard more grandly than Pitt. Also, most of his, shall we say, less-than-ideal stylings were for a role, or for saving New Orleans, or something. That’s why we are awarding Brad Pitt with TheFABlife’s prestigious Perfect Hair Award (we’ll be on standby if Brad wants to give us an acceptance speech.).
Oh, to be a follicle on that perfectly shaped scalp, or a faint bit of stubble along his perfectly chiseled jawline, but we digress. Check out Brad’s Hair-volution through the years and tell us which look is your fave!
As Mary J. Blige gets set to perform on VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul (airing Mon., Dec. 19 at 9PM EST), we’ve been wondering why the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is so universally loved. We’d guess it partially has to do with Mary J. practicing what she preaches in her hit “My Life.” The lyrics, in case you’ve forgotten:
When you’re feelin down
You should never fake it
Say what’s on your mind
And you’ll find in time
That all the negative energy
It would all cease
Mary has always been unafraid to speak her mind, both in her music and to the press. She’s open about her personal struggles and pain, and this feels refreshing in an age when many celebs seem muzzled as part of image campaigns. In other words, Mary J. is always Mary J. She’s moved from a rough life in a Yonkers housing project to A-list mega-star who hangs out at Vanity Fair Oscar parties — all the while retaining impeccable street cred. We usually arrange our Top Hottest Looks photos from least to most hot. But with this feature we’ve arranged them in chronological order. You’ll notice that Mary J. has had a dramatic style metamorphosis over the years. As her fame has grown, it seems her style savvy and number of stylists has too.
Catch VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul Monday, Dec. 19 at 9PM EST. The lineup includes Mary J. Blige, plus Jennifer Hudson, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Florence + The Machine, Kelly Clarkson, Jessie J and many others.
OK, so The Rum Diary is hovering at 51 percent approval from the critics on RottenTomatoes.com, but we’re going to go out on a limb here and say the Johnny Depp-starring movie based on Hunter S. Thompson’s first novel looks like fun. And if there were a Tomatometer for Amber Heard‘s red carpet appearances, she’d get at least a 99 percent Fresh rating. Even after the sudden cancellation of The Playboy Club, she’s been looking cool and confident and super hot every time there’s a camera near. This is one blond bombshell who knows she doesn’t have to go for the splashiest of fashions to show off her assets.

It seems like only yesterday that girls paraded malls all over America in white tank tops and their dads’ ties, emulating the signature style of teen pop-punk star Avril Lavigne.
