The idea of keeping up with the Joneses thrives in the celebrity world. Hence the outlandish cars, jewels and homes stars snatch up to keep themselves looking fresh. And when it comes to creating a personalized gallery or museum in the comfort of their own home, Madonna, Swizz Beatz, Victoria Beckham and more understand that money is no object. Art is priceless, after all.
Let’s just get one thing out on the table. It’s obvious, but worth noting that celebs — whether they’re movie stars, supermodels, Hollywood wives, reality personalities or some combination of the three — are very careful not to do anything that would jeopardize having a perfect body. Plainly speaking, they’re terrified of gaining weight. Cellulite and muffin tops are not on the menu! So, it’s always a surprise to us when we see A-list moms with more than two children. In celeb circles, that’s a downright enormous family — Duggars-enormous. And triple the amount of working-out to get their bodies back in red carpet shape.
From Heidi Klum to Victoria Beckham, check out our countdown of ultra-glam mommies and their boisterous, big families.

Is Sara Gilbert married? Which one of Posh Spice‘s sons is a model? What’s the secret to Marvel’s success?
We totally get that Kim Kardashian wanted to debut a hot new look after giving birth to Nori. But blonde was so not the move. Our lush Armenian goddess now looks like every other bleached babe in L.A. (and very J. Lo circa 2000, besides). She’s certainly not the only star who’s golden locks look unnatural instead of glam. From Katy Perry to Emma Stone, these 20 stars need to accept that blondes don’t always have more fun. Here’s to brunette fabulosity!

Two years ago today, the world welcomed a brand-new Spice Girl into our midst — who also, mind you, has the potential to be the girl who finally popularizes women’s soccer across the globe. Yes, Harper Seven Beckham is 2, and getting cuter and more fashion-savvy every day.
Were Posh and Becks too cool to compete in their son’s school day races? Who’s getting the bulk of James Gandolfini‘s $70 million fortune? And who was The Lone Ranger‘s Armie Hammer most nervous about impressing?
Romeo Beckham is clearly following in his very fashionable father and mother’s footsteps. It’s kind of par for the course when you have a parental unit comprising David and Victoria Beckham. And it goes without saying that is first modeling assignment — at the age of 10, FYI — would be a very prestigious one. Romeo’s the star of the new Burberry Spring 2013 advertisement which you can see above. And the kid’s got major swag. He looks great in the brand’s signature trench coat and we even give him props for popping its collar. Something we would have not done for any other human being. So, while he looks adorable, we’re going to have to admit that the campaign and the brand’s logic perplexes us. First up, we don’t get what they’re trying to portray here apart from Romeo looking adorable. Are the two adults on the side supposed to be mannequins? Are they metaphors for the traditional modes of modeling? Or is that too deep?
Secondly, and more importantly, this whole deal is a bit hypocritical, innit. Six years ago, Burberry’s head designer, Christopher Bailey was rumored to have been given a slap on the wrist for hanging with Victoria Beckham. Because, in another very past age, Victoria was considered to be the Queen of the WAGS and was viewed as too “chav” to be wearing the brand. This sort of news will never be explicitly confirmed because who will own up to something like that? But you know it was snooty enough to be true. But now that Vicky B’s transformation is complete and she’s become a High Priestess of Fashion, it’s all forgotten — by both the brand the parents. Tsk tsk.
Harry Potter starlet Bonnie Wright showed up at Jo Malone’s Thoroughly Proper Party in London on Wednesday lacking her long flowing locks. After years of being linked to her character Ginny Weasley with trademark titan tresses, maybe she followed in the footsteps of Emma Watson, who famously cropped her hair as soon as the series ended to get some distance from the franchise. Or she’s just hopping on the short hair band wagon!
It seems like ever A-lister has gotten the urge to hack of the hair this year. Some like Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron and Evangeline Lilly went super short for film roles, whereas former American Idol singer Kellie Pickler got a buzz to support her friend being treated for cancer. And then there are music mama’s like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys who went short just for the hell of it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 20 lovely ladies who took the hair plunge in 2012!

It’s that time of the year again. The leaves are going to start turning soon. Wardrobes are too, to accommodate the changing seasonal trends. It’s a tricky path though, because there’s so much information out there. What we’ve done is gleaned the top 10 trends out of all the tomes of “what to wear” out there and put them on the list. More than anything, these are the 10 trends that our fashion-forward celebrities have been wearing out and about, on magazine covers, in campaigns and for various events and premieres.
2. Oversized Coats: Another massive trend this season, be certain that your coat is big enough so it looks voluminous and chic, but not big enough so that you look lost in. Make sure you’re wearing it, and it’s not wearing you. Ashley Olsen got it right on the subscriber cover of Elle UK!
3. Monochrome: This fall trend can be worn in many avatars. Celebrities like Rihanna, Chloe Sevigny and Victoria Beckham have channeled monochrome into different looks — funky, mod and classic. So can you.
4. Modern Country/ Americana: Taylor Swift‘s Vogue cover got this trend spot on. Oversized hats, chunky knits, tweeds have been revived into modern silhouettes. It’s the new nostalgia. Think lots of Rodarte!
5. Capes: When Gwyneth Paltrow wore that white Tom Ford cape and gown to the Academy Awards, there was a collective gasp of … something. Then Lana del Rey wore one to the Met Ball to approval because people started getting used to the idea of capes. Kim Kardashian even wore one in Paris. Yup, it’s big. Read more…
