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!

It’s that time of year again — when celebrities are spending more time on the beach than they are getting arrested or promoting new projects, thus giving us the perfect opportunity to check out their perfect bodies and spur on a little healthy competition. Yes, it’s the Bikini Awards!
As opposed to the contestants in our Supermodel category, the above Disney alumnae (and one current star) are a little less conscious of the camera, which, yeah, we kind of admit makes us feel dirty. Especially when you consider that Bella Thorne (right) is just 14 years old. But we’re not here to make you think gross things about Hannah Montana and High School Musical‘s Gabrielle. We’d just like to point out how much we with we’d look good in a neon string bikini, or a high-waisted polka-dotted number. And we’re so glad Thorne, Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, Adrienne Bailon, Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez are having so much fun frolicking on the beach and at the pool — even if it’s for work, or under the watchful eye of the paps.
So enjoy the pics below, then choose your favorite. Voting for this round ends July 15 at 11 p.m.!

Sometimes our jobs are very tough around here. We’re a little more than halfway through 2012, and as we very studiously looking back at all the year’s most newsworthy and RT-ready Twitpic’d, Instagram’d and Facebooked photos, we started to feel a little nostalgic. It seems that many famous people have stopped accidentally sharing naked photos of themselves this year. I mean, good for them for learning, but bad for us. Still, there was no shortage of controversial pics — many thanks to Rihanna, who doesn’t care what we think of that white powder or that possibly racist threat against Karrueche Tran. We had some headline-makers, like Miley Cyrus’ non-engagement ring and Leann Rimes’ “fun” shooting range photos. And there certainly were some steamy snaps — from Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale, usual suspects Coco and Kim Kardashian, and even newcomers to the scene like Paulina Gretzky. Not many guys got in on the action, but Usher is worth about a dozen regular men, right? Anyway, enough gabbing, let’s get on to the photos!

We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge and Robert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
Our proclivity towards shirtless dudes and abs has already been made public today. So we’re going to try and not be biased with this post. We’ve already seen Justin Bieber toting around his little half-brother, Jaxon on the MMVA’s red carpet. The event went down in Toronto last night and his girlfriend Selena Gomez walked in solo, occasionally carrying his little sister, Jazzy. But Selena didn’t really need anyone on her arm because she looked just dandy on her own. She rocked a tiny , strappy, gold Roberto Cavalli mini-dress with matching glitzy stilettos and a slash of orange-red lipstick. Matching her head-to-head, was Carly Rae Jepson, who got some photo time with the Biebs on the red carpet, FYI. Carly Rae was super slinky in a black dress with two thigh-high slits, a turquoise Dannijo necklace and matching black heels. But Carly was all about the accessories, arriving at the awards show in a vintage convertible with those two buff, shirtless guys you see with her, in the picture on the right, when ended up polishing the hood. Now that’s an entrance! But, who stole the show? Selena, Carly, or the shirtless dudes? That’s all up to your vote!

Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and the random paparazzo who may or may not be healing from a Bieber Beatdown, we apologize on behalf of all media for the relentless coverage of Sunday’s scuffle. It’s just, well, too many celebrities were behaving nicely, or behind closed doors, or just fully clothed, this weekend. We have no choice. And also, we can’t get over the idea of the uber-careful Mr. Swaggy Adult inflicting injury on someone. So, here’s just a little update of the news so far:
- Yes, there isvideo evidence of Justin Bieber’s considerable boxing skills, as he hits the bag and receives encouragement from Mike Tyson, we assume when Bieber was in Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards on May 20. He must have felt bad about wimping out on that GQ reporter who really wanted to hit him.
- “Nice hanging out with @justinbieber & @alfredoflores,” Tyson wrote on his Intagram this Sunday (about last week’s visit). Biebs’ handlers must have been thrilled with this timing.
- According to TMZ, the criminal battery case will be referred to the Los Angeles DA, as most high-profile cases are. If convicted, he’d face up to six months in jail.
- That kind of sentencing not very likely, though, “not in a zillion years,” legal expert Dana Cole told ABC News this morning. We highly suggest watching the ABC video, btw, as it includes hilarious imagery of actual film canisters and a briefcase full of money.
- Bieber tweeted that he’s focusing on “important stuff,” rather than, you know, trouble with the law. He jetted off to Oslo yesterday for a series of “secret” shows as he drops his newest single, “Die in Your Arms.”
- Randomly, the Los Angeles Times decided to remind us that this girl with cancer would probably not approve of Justin hitting people.
- Also, we were right about Bieber and Selena still being together.
A paparazzo is suing Justin Bieber for criminal battery. We repeat: a grown man is suing the Biebs for beating him up. We want to say that again, but won’t be able to type because we’ll be laughing too hard. The deal is that this particular photographer was hounding Justin and girlfriend Selena Gomez in Calabasas, which is where the singer lives. The camera guy’s perspective is that he was trying to take their picture when the Biebs went all “The Hulk” on him, resulting in a fight which made the paparazzo call 911. He then complained that the beat down caused him to hurt his upper torso for which he had to go to hospital in an ambulance. Of course he did. Because when the Biebs hits, he hits hard, right?
Onlookers have a totally different perspective, though. The other side of the story is that there was a scuffle, but right after they were done, a lawyer present on the scene went and convinced the paparazzo to file a case so they could both rake in the moolah. The witnesses reckon that the lawyer pretty much told the photographer to straight up call an ambulance and the police because then the situation could turn into a big pile of money. They also reveal that Justin didn’t get aggressive for no reason. Mr. Paparazzo was actually blocking the singer’s car as he and his girlfriend were trying to leave. When Bieber got out and requested him to move, the photographer refused to and that’s how matters escalated. Even though this case sounds like a whole crock of BS to us, the police still have to investigate as a claim of battery has been made by the guy. Hang in there, Justin!

Where there are adorable couples, there are bound to be ugly breakup rumors, and Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are no exception to this rule. While we are endlessly amused by the idea of Selena getting carried away with Fifty Shades of Grey and running off with her gross house-painter, we also don’t want those kids to part ways, like, ever. Bieber fan sites pointed to a tweet they say he posted deleted last week that sounded like a breakup message: “thank you for the time i had with you but i have to move on now.” And others were soon saying that Selena unfollowed Justin on Twitter. Which, that one is false. Here’s a screencap from the list of people she’s following:
But we have to say, this post from MediaTakeout kind of cracked us up (random capitalization theirs): “The streets are saying that Selena Gomez DUMPED Justin, after she heard RUMORS that he and pop SUPERSTAR Rihanna were getting very friendly – and Selena suspected that Justin was SMASHING!!”
A more cynical writer (or less indulgent reader) might say this marks the moment that 50 Shades of Grey — or, more accurately, making fun of Fifty Shades of Grey — jumped the shark. Selena Gomez and Nick Kroll have made a Funny or Die video in which the teen queen fantasizes about her gross house painter as a result of reading a little too much E.L. James. But I’m not going to say that, because I have laughed at EVERY SINGLE ONE of these, and I’m showing no signs of tiring of the topic. Comedians of the world, you may still keep these parodies coming, for our appetite is as insatiable as Anastasia Steele’s. What I do fear is that by the time they get around to actually making the real movie, we won’t be able to take it seriously in the least. If we ever would have, that is. (OK, if Ian Somerhalder plays Christian, I promise to take it seriously.) Here five other readings/parodies to enjoy … until the next one comes along. None of these are SFW, btw.
1. Fifty Shades of Grey, the animated trailer. If you’ve read the book, I have two words of warning for you: blue string. If you haven’t, just prepare for some CGI gross. Read more…
Here’s one dude who definitely won Best Hair in Senior Superlatives! Just a couple of months after turning the big 1-8, Justin Bieber is now officially a high school graduate! *tear* It all went by so fast. “I passed my test –– I’m free,” he told Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper. “It was hard doing school and work everyday.” The multi-talented teen admitted that academics aren’t really his thing. “I’ve been able to travel the world,” he says. “At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading. I’m really not into that stuff. I like to be out there.”
When you’ve got enough money to rent out the Staples Center for a date night and buy your own jet, you’re probably not all that motivated to sit down and do homework. But luckily his mother insisted that Bieber get a proper education. “That was something my mom really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her.” He reportedly did most of his studies with a tutor in the road, which sadly cheated him out of a zillion Senior Superlatives in a high school year book. Best Smile? Cutest Couple with Selena Gomez? Most Likely To Have A Bogus Paternity Suit? He could win ‘em all. Got anymore? Let us know in the comments below!
