Tattoos are hot. They just are. Good ink can make almost anything sexy — a wrist, the top of a foot, aging rock stars (kidding). And in the past year or so, tats have totally become zeitgeisty, thanks to the popularity of shows like VH1′s Black Ink Crew; Spike TV’s Ink Master and Tattoo Rescue; and Oxygen’s Best Ink and Tattoos After Dark.
Did you make it through Super Bowl XLVIII in its entirety, or did you take a long winter’s nap until Prince appeared on New Girl? What was expected to be a high-scoring game between the NFL’s two best teams was a full-on rout, with the Seattle Seahawks (and Macklemore!) emerging victorious. There may not have been much competition after the botched snap on the opening drive, but this kind of uneventful game allows for more time to think about commercials, celebrity appearances and social media weirdness.
Who came out of the closet in the New York Times this weekend? Are things already getting hot and steamy on the set of Fifty Shades of Grey? Which films made box office history this Thanksgiving weekend?
Some men don’t have the courage to admit that it’s too hot to handle pants in the summertime, but not the 20 celebrities on our list. These famous actors, singers, and athletes dared to bare their legs when they sported shorts this summer.
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.
We guess we just never imagined an Olympian would go into sex work. Doesn’t every athlete get sponsored by Wheaties for the rest of their natural lives? We guess not, seeing as how ESPN reported today that three-time Olympic runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has admitted on Twitter that she’s also been working as an escort. Even more intriguingly, Hamilton claims she was “drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging time with my marriage and my life.” Wow, the things we don’t know about stuff. Of course, we can’t pretend we don’t know a lot about celebs and sex work. Don’t worry, Suzy. You have plenty of interesting company when it comes to celeb escort scandals…
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.
Victoria Beckham‘s Spring Summer 2012 show at New York Fashion Week yesterday is a bona fide hit and pulling in rave reviews. She actually burst into emotional, but happy tears while taking a bow and backstage! Elle U.K. wrote, “After eight years building a small dress collection into an internationally significant brand, Victoria Beckham has a self-confidence that allowed her to move the signature aesthetic sharply on. There were flat shoes (conceived with the help of Manolo Blahnik, no less). There were men’s shoes! Hell, there [were] even trousers! But most of all, there was a sense of quiet assurance …” Harper’s Bazaar added, “It is clear Victoria Beckham understands what a woman wants but with this collection she is sure to gain new admirers.” The Los Angeles Times gushed, “A knockout. Beckham’s collection is really evolving, and it’s been impressive to watch her designing things that you wouldn’t necessarily imagine her wearing. The brand isn’t just about Beckham anymore, it’s about her customer.”
She must be over the moon. But even with all the hype surrounding her show, we think that all the fabulous clothes were overshadowed by her famous husband, David Beckham, and daughter, Harper Seven. OK, not overshadowed, per se, but you have to admit that David looks like magicsauce holding their gorgeous baby girl. The photos above were taking as the family headed to Balthazar to have a meal after the show. But the photograph after the jump may be the single most fabulous picture to emerge out of the whole of Fashion Week. It was tweeted by Victoria, and is basically, Harper walking down the runway before the show. Werk it, Harper! Read more…
Celebrities have never been shy about showing off their bodies, vacations or friends on Twitter, and sometimes they really go over the line. But there’s one thing they can never share enough of, if you ask us: babies pictures! Earlier this week, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Lily Aldridge gave us the first glimpse of her nearly 1-month-old daughter with husband and Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, Dixie Pearl. Dixie’s Twitter debut features her tiny feet in pink, bunny rabbit footie pajamas. Can we get a resounding awwww? There is no mistaking that this pic is precious, but it does come as a bit of a tease. When do we get to see this little munchkin’s face?
Following in the footsteps of Lily and other celebs who have chosen to announce the birth of their children via Twitter, Curly Sue star Alisan Porter didn’t waste any time tweeting a pic of her baby boy, Mason, born only yesterday. Other stars like Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson and Alessandra Ambrosio have also recently introduced their bundles of joy on Twitter. These adorable twitpics confirm that celebrities’ children are truly genetically blessed and living the G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S life. We look forward to the possibility of a future modeling or acting career for these youngsters, but for now, we are just happy to get to see their lovable looks. Take a look at some of the cutest celebrity baby Twitpics. They are bound to melt your heart!
Forgive us for wanting to indulge you a bit. Okay, we’re also indulging ourselves, but we swear that your benefit was first and foremost in our minds when we wrote this. These three celebrities have really nothing in common apart from being super rich and famous. Oh — they also share they fact that they have the most incredibly ripped bodies. We thought we’d get you a little montage of their shirtless, weekend action to prove our point. Not that it needs proving — we just wanted shirtless, hot men to start the weekend with, okay? How is that a crime. On the left we have dreamboat and new father, Chris Hemsworth, chilling by his hotel pool over the weekend in Sydney. His co-stars, Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart have just flown in as well, as they’re all in Australia for the premiere of Snow White And The Huntsman. Until then, we’d like Chris to laze around shirtless as much as his heart desires.
In the middle, we have the equally dreamy David Beckham, who took his tattooed torso out for a spin after his soccer team, L.A. Galaxy beat the Portland Timbers in California. May he always win his matches and celebrate just like this, over and over again. Finally, on the right we have The Situation who was doing what he usually does — being shirtless. On his roof, this time around. Whatever you have to say about him, you have to admit he has a totally sick body. We’re rather happy by this weekends catch, even though we may say so ourselves. And not to play favorites or anything, but we’ve got two more photographs of shirtless Chris, right after the jump. Enjoy! Read more…
