There’s a reason why a certain subset of your friends loses their minds every time niche British TV finds its way on Netflix: Benedict Cumberbatch. The actor is having a breakout year, with Oscar buzz surrounding his portrayal of real life World War II hero Alan Turing in The Imitation Game (Nov. 28). In addition to his acting chops and beautiful face, Cumberbatch can carry a tune — in the style of Taylor Swift no less!

So many good outfits this week, so little time. Between the glammy Hollywood premieres of If I Stay and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the stars — as the kids say — slayed the scene on red carpets. But honestly? We were most blown away by A-list street style. Read more…
When it comes to music, these girls have it all. They can sing. They can dance. And they can act — err, wait a minute on the last one. Sadly, a powerful voice, a magnetic personality in interviews, or killer dance moves in music videos doesn’t mean a pop star has what it takes to be an actress. With practice, some do get better.

Somehow, stars make everything they do — even the mundane, ordinary things — look special. Aspirational. Even glamorous! The simple act of walking out of yoga class or shopping with friends can look like a still from a Annie Leibowitz photo shoot (want a true rock star moment? Catch Rihanna on a Starbucks run).
