We’ll give you the juice about who was at Coachella this weekend in a minute, but first we’d like to give props to the very lovely Emma Watson. It was her birthday yesterday and what better way to celebrate than at the festival? Actually, she did find a better way to celebrate — canoodling with a fine mystery man as you can see in the photograph on the left. Happy birthday, indeed. Next up, we got Katy Perrywho has traded her bright blue Smurf hair for a darker black with deep purple highlights. She pulls off the hippie headband, doesn’t she? Someone else wearing said headband (with fewer clothes on) was Paris Hilton, who is now fully exploring her music festival avatar thanks to boyfriend, Afrojack.
Someone who really can’t carry off hippie, but is one regardless, is Vanessa Hudgens, who wore sheer thigh-highs for some odd reason. She attended the festival with boyfriend Austin Butler. Other couples included squee-worthy Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, Fergie and Josh Duhamel and Kate Bosworth with Michael Polish. Two faces we didn’t expect to see were Dylan McDermott and Pierce Brosnan. For the full list of expected and unexpected stars, get thee to the gallery below.
Emma Watson turns 22 today, but we still can’t help but want to pinch those grown women cheeks. The Harry Potter starlet exudes total adorableness. From her sleek cut to her polished threads, Emma is that pretty girl you always hated because you secretly wanted to be just like her. Can we blame all those screaming girls gushing tears when they meet her? Although Emma’s days of playing the smart and fearless Hermione have sadly come to an end, Emma’s career is still booming. The Brown University undergrad played the cute wardrobe assistant Lucy in My Week With Marilyn, a critically acclaimed film nominated for two Oscars. She’s got a lead in the much-anticipated Perks of Being a Wallflower, out in September. And the English beauty is currently switching gears to play bad-ass stick-up kid in The Bling Ring, scheduled to release in 2013. No matter the different roles Emma takes, she will always be that darling little lady we first met on the big screen in 2001. Let’s all wish Emma a big happy birthday with her 22 most adorable looks.
We never thought we’d be typing “Emma Watson” in the same sentence as the phrase “tramp stamp,” but it just goes to show you that The Secret totally works. Thanks, vision board! The Harry Potter star was sporting cut-offs, a leather jacket and bra top on the set of her upcoming comedy The Bling Ring, in addition to her massive lower back tattoo. Clearly the ink is faux, as the idea of Hermoine with a gigantic tramp stamp would make the universe collapse in on itself. Our universe, anyway.
Emma’s badass makeover is part of her role as one of several, as IMDB puts it, “fame-obsessed teenagers use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes.” We don’t know how Emma plans to escape the police in those zebra heels in the movie, which costars Leslie Mann and Kirsten Dunst, so we guess we’ll have to head to the theaters to find out. And to find out what that tattoo is even of. Is it a skull? Roses? A skull made of roses? At least it appears to be engulfed in flames and, really, what other kind of tramp stamp is there?

We all get how hard it must be for the stars of Harry Potter to find new and exciting roles after the end of their beloved franchise. And brava to Emma Watson for doing so in such a chic way two whole years ago. So it should be none too surprising that Daniel Radcliffe has finally changed up his ‘do. But it kinda is. We got so used to seeing Daniel’s straight hair with bangs — high off the ear, brushed down for Potter, brushed off his face to the side for real life — that it’s a shock to the system to see these photos of him on the set of Kill Your Darlings, in which he plays a young Allen Ginsberg. So much curly hair! Can it possibly be all his? He had a lot of 19th-century bangs and sideburn action for The Woman in Black, so it could be.
Here’s a little retrospective of DanRad’s hair for his various roles. Which is your fave?

And how happy are you that he’s playing Ginsberg in 1944, not the ’60s-era version of the poet most of us think of?
Usually we can’t stand celebrities who cannot get over how hot they are, but we’ll give Emma Watson a pass. Why? Well, um…because she really is that hot. What is she supposed to do, deny reality? Never walk in front of a reflective surface? Never sashay nor shante? The Harry Potter star instead worked it out like a 9-to-5 in a short, fiery red lace dress while on the red carpet of today’s Lancome and Emma Watson Pre-BAFTA party at The Savoy Hotel in London. We guess if your name is in the title of the event you’re attending, that’s more than enough reason to smize. So smize on, you minx.
The folks at Forbes certainly know what they’re doing. Usually, we turn to them for the big lists, like the Celebrity 100, the World’s Most Powerful Women or the Hip-Hop Cash Kings. But those take a lot of work, and sometimes, they just need something fast and easy (we’re just assuming here, ’cause you know, we’d never be so gratuitous about our lists). So, they do things like this week’s Hollywood’s Top-Earning On-Screen Couples, which is topped by Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, followed by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
We’re very happy to see the Harry Potter and Twilight stars at the top of the list, natch. But it does feel a bit like the editors sat down and said, “What kind of list can we do that will feature the stars of Harry Potter and Twilight, and maybe also Pirates of the Caribbean and Transformers?” They admit themselves that the whole thing is based on numbers from Box Office Mojo (the total earnings from movies with the stars as a couple from the last five years).
Still, here we are, looking at the list. So they’ve hooked us again! We’ll give you the full list below, but also we want to come up with some kind of challenge for the Forbes editors, just to make sure they stay on top of their game. Maybe the next feature should be something like America’s Highest-Grossing Puppet Shows or Top-Earning Subway Mariachi Groups. That‘ll take a little shoe leather. Read more…
No, the fact that Justin Bieber’s, Jennifer Aniston’s and Emma Watson’s haircuts were the most searched-for haircuts of 2011 is not Earth-shattering news by any means. What we do find entertaining, however, is the fact that Google seems to have taken a lot of time measuring something like this. Click around the site’s 2011 Zeitgeist feature and you’ll find all sorts of not-very-shocking info (Bieber is the most-searched person, Rebecca Black is the fastest rising, Kim Kardashian and William and Kate had the most popular weddings, etc.) laid out in very nifty-looking bar graphs. This is the perfect toy to play with as we wait out our office-party hangover. If that seems like too much math for your foggy brain, just click through our gallery of the year’s top 10 celebrity haircuts, according to the Zeitgeist.
Earlier today we wrote about Dudley O’Shaughnessy being too busy to date Rihanna, the Sexiest Woman Alive. And right now we’d like to expand on the theme of D-list dudes dumping their lovely A-list ladies. Emma Watson’s former flame Francis Boulle has recently opened up about why their relationship never blossomed, and as you might have expected, it’s not her- it’s him. The two met at the Cartier polo party in 2008, but the thought of being outshone by the Harry Potter star didn’t sit well with Francis, who at that time was an aspiring actor.
“We had a bit of a thing a while back,” he explained to Heat Magazine, “but I have always been an ambitious person and I want to achieve my own notoriety for what I’ve done.” Well congrats Francis, because we think you just did. “I chose not to pursue it any longer because I didn’t want to be the boyfriend of some child actress.” And that’s why he decided to split with the beautiful, talented, rich and famous Ivy league student. At least you can never accuse him of being a star f–ker, right? Luckily good things have come to both since the split. Emma’s moved on to dating her Perks of Being A Wallflower costar Johnny Simmons, and Francis has moved on to doing reality TV, where everyone’s a star. Kinda like porn.
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve assembled some of Emma’s least child-actressy (read: HOT) looks in the gallery below. Enjoy!
Ever the red carpet darling, Emma Watson showed up to the GQ Men of the Year Awards in a super glam plaid prom dress by McQ. She sex’d up the look with studded pumps and a black biker jacket. We think the British starlet pulled off the tartan look swimmingly.
Other hits of the night were Daisy Lowe in a fishtailed, backless lace gown and Bradley Cooper in one of his trademark tuxedos. Leona Lewis looked stunning enough that we’ll forgive the fringe at the bottom of her white frock and in an unusual turn of events, Charlize Theron flopped in dowdy wide-legged gray trousers. Check out their looks, as well as Kylie Minogue, John Legend and Tinie Tempah, below.
The new Emma Watson’s Lancome commercial has a whole lot of interwoven messages we’re still trying to decode. Are we supposed to think that, if we buy Trésor Midnight rose perfume, suddenly we’ll be able to pull off a fedora and pixie cut while magically seducing bookworms? Or will shy bookstore clerks see this ad and frantically start spritzing the air with it, in the hopes that their own tie-wearing gamine A-list actress will stop by, forcing them to sprint down the river to catch the last light-up gazebo barge as it leaves town? Also, and we could be wrong here, but…Emma’s fedora is made of magic, right? It is, isn’t it? Well-played, Lancome. Well-played.
