We’re kind of obsessed with Nicki Minaj’s stripped-down, April 2013 Elle cover — no neon lips, no fishnet, no vinyl, and yet, her signature bright blonde locks were 100% present and accounted for (just the way we like it). Inspired by Madame Minaj’s blonde bombshellery, we salute our thirty favorite bleached-out celebs!

How we wish these three ladies could have been on the best-dressed list at the 2012 American Music Awards instead. You can check out all our coverage on VH1 Tuner as well. We’re sad to include this trio here, but we have to be honest: These looks really tanked. We’ll start with Christina Aguilera. She has such a pretty face, so we can’t understand why she has to ladle on so much makeup? We want to scrub her face with a sponge! The Pamela Roland gown she wore in white and shades of purple looked far too tight, even though it was supposed to be draped, and her Jimmy Choo heels were too clunky and by far the wrong choice for this. It also kills us that Gwen Stefani‘s Balmain Fall 2012 black velvet embellished blazer fit so badly! She wore the jacket with leather pants and a black bralet and it just didn’t work at all because the Balmain outweighed everything else. Except her face, which looked gorgeous. Lastly, we applaud Jordin Sparks for trying to pull off something as avant-garde as this net and patchwork Etro Fall 2012 gown, but it wore her instead. It requires some experience and sartorial savvy to wear something like this, and while Jordin is getting there, she isn’t quite at the level yet. Better luck next time for all. We know these three have a lot more in them!

It was the battle of the volume at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards yesterday. While Heidi Klum was OTT in various Versace ensembles and Carly Rae Jepsen was Taylor Swift‘s doppelganger, the likes of Alicia Keys, Lana del Rey and Gwen Stefani stood out by keeping it simple and stylish. Alicia complemented her angular bob with a Stella McCartney ‘Miracle’ dress with its very geometric use of three colors. She paired it with pointed silver Gianvito Rossi metallic pumps. Lana kept it very minimal (almost boring) in a Shareen Mitchell dress and bouffant, backcombed hair. Gwen’s thigh-high boots were amazingly hot with her black draped satin Jean Paul Gaultier outfit.
Going completely in a different direction were Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora who went B.I.G. Kim tweeted that she was wearing “the coolest Stephane Rolland” dress for the show. but this whole mullet silhouette and long train just doesn’t do it for us. It almost got her to fall flat on her face ON STAGE as well. Rita’s gown may cause some people to frown, but we love it. It’s a red taffeta Marchesa ballgown and we think it looks like a dream on her. Not very many people would be able to pull this off, but Rita certainly can. Does it work for you? Who else do you think worked it?

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!

This post truly has something for everyone. It has the lovely and talented mega-diva Mariah Carey belting it at the NFL kickoff concert last night in New York’s Rockefeller Center. So that’s the sports and music fans covered. But it also has a celebrity wardrobe malfunction and an adorable Uggy look-alike puppy. What’s not to love!? Yes, the photo gods have been kind to us today. Mimi showed off her curves, her voice and her super cute Jack Russell terrier Jill E. Beans last night as she sang her new single “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” to the assembled crowd of sports fans. The performance included no less than two costume changes before handing it over to her pooch. But Mariah wasn’t the only star on the bill. Queen Latifah gave a stirring version of the national anthem from down on the football field in NJ, and a newly reformed No Doubt rocked 30 Rock with a rendition of their newest track “Settle Down.” Check out more in the gallery below!

The MTV Video Music Awards are known for having one of the most varied guest lists in showbiz, creating mind-blowingly random Hollywood juxtapositions. Many unexpected duos are tapped to present awards together, and sometimes folks are feeling friendly and just want a picture with their secret celeb crush.These unexpected pairings sometimes could be the musical collaboration of our dreams, much like Lady Gaga and Cher appearing side by side (with a side of beef) back in 2010. Or they could be the nightmare we wish would end, like the legendary meeting of Kanye West and Taylor Swift in ’09. Who would have thought teen sweetheart Mandy Moore would want to be hugged up with the creepy Marilyn Manson? The VMAs have given us some insanely wonderful worlds colliding moments over the years, so we’ve made a gallery to celebrate our favorite. Head down bellow to check out our 20 Most Unexpected VMA Pairings of All Time. Let’s hope we can have another 50 Cent and Paris Hilton moment this Thursday!

We’re guessing “summer vacation” means something different when mom and dad can whip you off to St. Tropez or Maui any time of year, but it still means something for celebrity kids, judging from the fun pics we’ve seen. School’s out, mom and dad take you to the park, the beach, the yacht, the private jet, and you get to play all you want. For some little ones, like Jessica Simpson’s daughter Maxwell or Hilary Duff’s son Luca, everything about summer must be new and fun, and the paparazzi don’t have anything on mom’s need to capture their every move. Jennifer Hudson’s and Gwen Stefani’s sons had to squeeze their fun in with their parents’ busy work schedules. Kids like Matilda Ledger and Sean Federline got to spend some quality time with their moms’ significant others. And we’re happy to see that even the children of newly split parents, like Suri Cruise, and Heidi Klum and Seal’s brood, were able to enjoy some carefree moments in the sun.
One thing’s for certain: Whatever these famous offspring were doing for the past three months, it was way more fabulous than our own summer pastimes. See for yourself…

People have been losing their damn minds over Miley Cyrus new peroxide punk makeover like she’s the first woman to go crazy at the hair salon or twerk out a pair of Doc Martins. “it was just one of those CUHHH-RAZY pant days,” Cyrus tweeted yesterday, along with a shot of some Magic Eye-looking leggings. We bet you dollars to donuts if you took a time machine to 1993, you could see approximately one billion women rocking the same look. Actually, you don’t have to go back in time at all, because Miley’s look strongly reminded us of other bleached blond fashionistas she’s starting to resemble.
We’ve said this time and time again, but we’ll say it one more time — Kingston Rossdale is way cool for school. And he’s just six years old. We’ve seen him suit up in a natty blazer and tee-shirt combination on Easter Hunts. We’ve seen him rock face paint. We’ve seen him look absolutely adorable in a bowtie and coat for Thanksgiving with his grandparents. While his whole outfit would have looked preppy on anyone else, Kingston made it look hipster, but not annoyingly so! And while we’re on this subject, how can we forget his crazy, awesome blue mohawk? Really, he’s six. We’re not kidding about that. Blue also seems to be his favorite shade. He was spotted headed into JFK with his mom, Gwen Stefani, yesterday, where they were most likely to be jetting off to some place cool. No Doubt, about that. See what we did there? Anywho, while mamma Gwen looked as effortlessly fabulous as ever, all eyes were on Kingston thanks to his blue hair! Yep, it’s back. Not a mohawk this time, but it’s there all right. Don’t miss the complementing pirate shirt, either. And the smiley face fake tattoo on his arm. And the red pants. And the blue sneakers. And this is our point — we want to start calling him Kingston Rock-dale now.
Also, is that nailpaint he has on? Yep, that looks like black nail polish. Read more…
Katie Holmes is sticking to her passion for fashion through her very public divorce from Tom Cruise. So much so that a spokesperson from Holmes’ brand, Holmes & Yang, announced that they will be putting on a presentation during New York Fashion Week in September of this year. This is Holmes & Yang’s debut at New York Fashion Week and they will be showcasing their spring collection. It seems like more celebs than we can count have dabbled in the fashion industry along with being musical artists or actors. Gwen Stefani with her punk rock L.A.M.B line and of course Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen with their high fashion design line, The Row. Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, Coco, and Victoria Beckham are also no strangers to the world of fashion. These multi-talented go-getters show their spunk, individuality, and sequins (of course, Coco) in their designs. Head down the gallery below to see what they’ve come up with for the catwalk!
