The Oscars are over and Paris Fashion Week is wrapping up, which means we can finally stop pretending the ridiculous contraptions worn by some the world’s biggest stars are soon to be “on trend.” Rihanna has been in the City of Lights all week, hanging out with Oscar winners and breaking out dozens of outfits that would make a marathon runner stop in his or her tracks. Her short hair looks great, the bold lip is on point, but she’s still had some missteps.
Is it really even fair to include models in the Bikini Awards? Well, it’s kinda like when they allowed professional athletes into the Olympics — it’s a bummer for the amateurs but much more fun for those of us watching at home. So, here we present you with nine professional posers posing in their best bikinis.
Okay, so we’re reading VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV’s First Wave, and feeling nostalgic for our fave music videos. And generally, they’re ones starring sexed-up, luscious-limbed, pouty-lipped models (no, not Supahead-esque vixens. We’re talking supermodels). Whether it’s because the artist was dating the model, or simply because she captures the taste of the time, catwalk queens and videos do go hand-in-hand, no? From Wicked Game to Freedom, we rank the top ten sexiest videos starring fierce fashion goddesses!
Michael Douglas sparked a media frenzy when he claimed that his throat cancer was caused by HPV, which was contracted during oral sex. The Gossip Table has learned the actor failed at an attempt to have a PSA moment when he spoke to Marianne Garvey’s team while being honored by the American Cancer Society. His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, was a no-show at the event and has provided no comment on the story. Looks like someone’s not too happy about the HPV flap.
Find out what Douglas had to say, and more on Naomi Campbell‘s ongoing relationship drama with her ex-boyfriend and protégé Luo Zilin, after the jump!
How did After Earth stack up at the box office? Daniel Radcliffe talks about someday becoming a dad, and Bradley Cooper heads to the nation’s capital.
Discovered at the age of 15, the British model turns 43 today. Over the past 28 years of her modeling career, Naomi Campbell has given us all sorts of fierce and commanding looks. But none of them top her angry faces, which have been seen on The Face (Oxygen’s modeling reality competition series) to strutting down the street to complete community service. So we honor the model’s birthday with all her angriest faces… let’s just hope she won’t throw a cell phone at us!
This news is pretty scary. It takes a lot of guts to target one of the most photographed faces in the world and the fact that thieves are now taking those chances means our world has become that much more unsafe to live in. Naomi Campbell was attacked and mugged recently in Paris on the street while she was trying to get a taxi and ended up hurting herself badly while being robbed. Sources told Page Six, “Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up. It was terrifying. Naomi believes the assailant had been watching her, casing her out, and waited for a moment to strike when she was alone. She was attacked in the street as she hailed a cab, and robbed.” Naomi’s torn a ligament thanks to the ordeal but luckily, her billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, acted as her knight in shining armour and flew her to Colorado via private jet to get treated by a top orthopedic surgeon. So we know she’s in good hands. It is believed the thieves were after her jewelry and the French police are in the midst of investaging the incident. We’re glad this didn’t get any worse!

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, joyful Kwanzaa, and — why not? — happy birthday too, while you’re at it! It’s the holiday seasons, folks; the time of year for giving to our nearest and dearest. And for you, dear readers, we could think of no better gift than 100 of the sexiest bikini photos that this year had to offer! We’ve got some of everybody, and we do mean everybody. There might even been one of you in there. We’ve got that many!
Of course this uber-gallery is presided over by Beyonce, who ruled over our 2012 Bikini Awards just like she does with the rest of the known universe. In fact, she was able to defy time and win the coveted award with pics that were (technically) from 2011. That’s the power of Queen Bey! In addition to her, our list is chock-full of other pop queens like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, and big-screen A-listers like Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba. TV personalities Maria Menounos and Angela Simmons made a strong showing, too. We’ve also got shots from the usual suspects like reality star Kim Kardashian, never-shy Twitter mama Adrianne Curry and Coco, the Patron Saint of Donks.
Some of our very own VH1 stars like Mob Wives’ Drita D’Avanzo and Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada put in an appearance, as did Hunger Games leading lady (and our personal favorite) Jennifer Lawrence. Professional hotties Kate Upton and Brooklyn Decker look straight out of the pages of Sports Illustrated, while Victoria’s Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima are simply heavenly.
So tear off the wrapping paper and dive in to our terrific 2012 retrospective of everyone’s favorite two-piece. Happy Holidays!

SPICE UP YOUR LIFE! Sorry, guys. We really did get excited seeing the Spice Girls reunited while performing at the amazing spectacle that was the Olympics Closing Ceremony yesterday (or this morning, depends on what part of the world you’re in.) Especially went whizzing around in those cool, lit-up minis! And they weren’t the only ones we squeed at. The whole playlist of sorts had moments we were giddy about. How about Take That? We used to swoon over them back in the day, and seeing them together brought back all those memories. We only wish that Robbie Williams had joined them, but we’ll take what we can get. We got One Direction for the swooning-in-this-day-and-age, so we’re all good! George Michael busting out moves was awesome — did you sing Freedom out aloud too? And how about them supermodels, huh? All in glittering gold gowns. Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella Tennant, Karen Elson and the rest of the finest of the Brit fashion crop did make a huge impression.
We have to say that Fatboy Slim busting out Rockerfella Skank was a massive moment for us too. Acid house at the Olympics? Yes, please! And while we’re at it — what did you think of Russell Brand‘s performance? We love him, so we were more than happy to see him up there. More than anything, his inclusion showed just how much thought the organizers put into this ceremony. They tried to be together everything quintessentially British — fashion, comedians, music, dancing — and we think they totally succeeded. Look through our gallery to have a look at who else we were excited to see, and let us know if you agree!

Welcome back to the ever-popular and much beloved VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards! Yes, it’s that time of year again, where we pit your favorite stripped down celebs against one another to see has the most bangin’ bikini bod of 2012. Happy summer, folks!
Step back, beach babes: It’s time to leave it to the professionals! We can’t have a bikini contest without mentioning these lovely ladies who get paid to strut their stuff on runways and beaches around the world. Kate Upton has been shaping up to be the queen of the summer with her reign on the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover and her super hot (and patriotic) GQ spread. But she definitely has some rock hard competition in the form of former SI cover girl Brooklyn Decker, not to mention mega-hot model mamas Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes. We’ll let Gisele Bundchen join in the fun too, even though she’s technically only got half of a bikini. But her husband, Tom Brady, lost the Super Bowl, so we have some sympathy for her. Factor in supermodel legend Naomi Campbell, Victoria’s Secret angel Irina Shayk and Italian superhottie Claudia Romani, and you realize that it can be anybody’s game.
Check out the gallery below, and cast your vote for the hottest super model bikini bod of 2012. The polls close at 11 p.m. on July 15th!
