Christina Aguilera has been out of the spotlight since taking a break from NBC’s hit reality competition series, The Voice. Following news of her pregnancy, the singer went into hiding because she’s very self-conscious of her weight since she ballooned after her first pregnancy. But maybe she’ll get over it, she recently showed off her baby bump on Twitter.
Tis the season, everyone! Remember when you were a little kid and your parents made you sit on the creepy old mall Santa dude’s lap? Well it’s time to put those childhood traumas behind you, because we’ve just stuffed your stocking with 30 super sexy Santas! Trust us, you’ll be begging to sit on these laps.
It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and we’re all feeling fat. Celebs are not immune to this feeling. In fact, they’re not immune to actually getting chubby. Like us, they stuff their faces on holidays, get a tad too amped at the craft services table, and gain pesky pregnancy weight. But unlike us, they can afford the veddy veddy best trainers, nutritionists, dieticians and lipo technicians. They can afford to pile on the pounds because they have the means to drop the lb’s faster than you can say “Jenny Craig contract.”
Last week, Christina Aguilera and Miranda Lambert showed off svelte new, slimmed-down figures at the AMA’s and Country Music Awards. In the past couple months since Princess North West was born, Kim Kardashian has gone from “Shamu” jokes (and shame on the tabloids for that) to her pre-preggo, Playboy-perfect figure. And we’re not even going to go into Perez Hilton’s flirty new physique.
Here, we celebrate the ten sexiest celeb slimdowns of the past six months. Some post-Thanksgiving feast inspo!

It wasn’t only onstage. Lots of gorgeous celebrities either whizzed through the red carpet super quickly at the People’s Choice Awards last night, or chose to skip it entirely, only to appear on stage to accept an award or two. We picked our top 10 from this list and plenty of your favorites are included. Jennifer Lawrence to begin with in a Valentino Fall 2012 Couture dress with Nicholas Kirkwood black satin pumps and Cartier jewels. Love J.Law, but not so enamored by this dress. This is the photograph she’s most working it in, but in others, it ages her and swamps her frame. Then, we have Sandra Bullock in a blue custom Vera Wang strapless bodice and pencil skirt, but what really got us excited, were her hot pink pumps matched with her hot pink lipstick. Jennifer Aniston in Christian Dior surprised us, because even though her dress was her usual black, it was quite playful and featured a flounced skirt. She paired it with Tom Ford black ankle-strap heels and Fred Leighton jewels. Emma Watson wore a jazzy, kaleidoscopic Peter Pilotto with strappy Tabitha Simmons ‘Bailey’ sandals, while Katy Perry was the most toned down we’ve seen in a while, in a demure Valentino Fall 2012 dress with Jimmy Choo suede pumps, Jennifer Behr headpiece, and Sylva & Cie earrings. Hits of gorgeous yellow were provided by Brittany Snow‘s pale daffodil draped Maria Lucia Hohan three-quarters dress and Melissa Rauch‘s bright sunflower Junko Yoshioka gown accessorized expertly with Stuart Weitzman gold heels and a gold Vincent Camuto clutch. Shout out to Ellen Pompeo for busting out some Lanvin as well! Check out all the looks in the gallery below.

It’s not easy to pull off red felt and white fur, but there are a few lucky celebrities out there that manage to look hot in it regardless! Yes, it’s Christmas yet again, the time of the year where we prepare for a large bearded man to break into our homes as we sleep. Wouldn’t it be so much cooler if, for example, Katy Perry were to come down our chimney instead? Or Beyonce?! When famous folks dress up as Santa Claus, it provides a really interesting/weird alternate reality holiday. Or the beginning of a festive porno, depending on how you look at it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 30 Santa’s whose laps you definitely wouldn’t mind sitting on! From Victoria’s Secret Angels like Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Barbara Palvin, to divas like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey. So step right up and check out the gallery of the ho-ho-hottest Santas around! It’s not only sexy, it’s tradition!

After last year’s mega success “Moves Like Jagger” alongside fellow Voice judge Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera seemed poised to make a musical comeback on her own two feet. Then Lotus happened. The album may have a few scattered supporters, it didn’t do so hot over all, earning the lowest first week sales of her career. Oof.
So there’s that. But this year wasn’t all that bad in X-tina Land! She was given the ALMA Award for her work in charity, and even got “admired” by Secretary of State Hilary Clinton! She may be taking a year long hiatus from her judging chair on The Voice, but she still found time to team up with Cee Lo Green on “Baby It’s Cold Outside” for his Christmas album extravaganza, Cee Lo’s Magic Moment. So in all, it’s been a mixed year for Christina. But through it all, one this has remained constant: Her fabulous hair! So to celebrate her 32nd birthday today, we’ve assembled some of her greatest hair styles of this year, and every year. Enjoy!

Are you the sort of person who scrolls down to see what shoes celebrities are wearing when you see an outfit that interests you? Then this is the list for you. Even if you aren’t a shoe fanatic, this is still a fun exercise, to be honest. We’ve compiled together our list of the top 25 most drool-worthy heels, platforms and boots spotted on celebrities in 2012. And to make it even more interesting, when you visit the gallery below, we’ve put pictures of the shoes first, with the celebrity reveal right after, so you can have a go at guessing who the gorgeous heel, platform, pump, bootie or boot belongs to! The caption on each celebrity reveal will also tell you what brand the shoe is and where and when it was worn. All our favourite celebrities are in there: Beyonce, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and a whole host more.
A couple of spoilers, though. We won’t tell you the color of the shoes so you can still have a guess when you look through the pictures. We adore Mila Kunis‘ Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ and Miley Cyrus‘ Jimmy Choo ‘Tippi” pumps, respectively. Bella Thorne‘s Miu Miu platform booties are to die for, as are Rooney Mara‘s YSL ‘Tribtoo’ slingbacks. Have a blast figuring out which is which. We wish you a happy and well-heeled rest of 2012!

We all had a good chuckle over that photo of Hillary Clinton gazing down at Christina Aguilera‘s ample cleavage at October’s 2012 George McGovern Leadership Award Ceremony, where Xtina was being honored for helping starving children, not for having a nice rack. Little did we know that the admiration between the Secretary of State and the Voice judge was completely mutual.
“She’s such a force in a room, she’s just got that star charisma, and everything about her I just — I couldn’t take my eyes off her either, so it was mutual,” Christina told Ellen DeGeneres in a segment taped for today’s show.
“Wow. Well,” was Ellen’s response. And now we can picture a million slash fiction writers coming up with steamy romances between the two divas.
“I’m so inappropriate!” Christina said apologetically. Well, that’s how we love you best — but you weren’t the one staring at a public official’s assets, btw.

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!
