As we bid farewell to 2009, we’d like to take a moment to honor the year’s most atrocious red carpet fashion disasters. So many stars said “yes we can” to terrible outfits that it was hard to narrow down the group to just 9, but the celebrities below truly went above and beyond the call of duty doodie with these craptastic looks. From layers of lace, to body suits and booty shorts, we’ve got the best of the worst for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Baby fever! There must be something in the water at Victoria’s Secret because three of their top models (Adriana Lima, Gisele Bundchen and Karolina Kurkova) are currently pregnant and their poster girl, Heidi Klum just had her fourth child in October. But models aren’t the only celebs with buns in the oven – celebrities Kourtney Kardashian and Kendra Wilkinson are both expecting their first wee ones later this year.
From Jennifer Hudson to Nicole Richie to Halle Berry, stars are constantly popping out adorable tots. Check out 70 serious celebrity baby bumps from recent history. If you hunt you’ll find baby-bellied Madonna, Angelina Jolie‘s massive There’s-Twins-In-Here!-belly and Demi Moore seven months pregnant and baring it all!
The scary pairing of Madonna and her “teeny-tiny dancer’s body” -obsessed trainer Tracy Anderson has come to an end. Ã‚Â As if reminding us all who’s the boss here, it’s been confirmed that the two have “parted ways” after Tracy rose to worldwide fame as the woman behind Madonna’s (and Gwyneth Paltrow’s) age-defying figure.
As with any sudden split, lots of rumors have hit the blogs about the possible reasons behind the news. Tracy’s camp claims it’s simple because she “wanted to look after her son” (mm-hmmm), but the juicier gossip has it that Her Madgesty was seriously displeased that Tracy’s relationship with Philippe van den Bossche was to blame. The former head of M’s Raising Malawi charity, he quit to move to NYC with Anderson, who then reportedly didn’t travel with Madonna until the end of her tour so she could be with her new man.Ã‚Â We could have told them that when you’re working with a world-class diva like Madonna, don’t let her know that she’s NOT number one in your world.
Just in case her self-righteousness wasn’t enough to fuel the Gwyneth Paltrow haters, the latest GOOP scoop is that Paltrow and husband Chris Martin have purchased their London neighbor’s home in order to build a massive 33-room house.
The Paltrow-Martins have lived in their current home since 2004 (it was previously owned by Kate Winslet). They acquired their next door neighbors home two years ago but have now begun construction to create the enormous mega-mansion. The new addition will include a garden and play area for the couple’s two children, Apple and Moses, three additional bedrooms, a gym, a changing room and a bathroom. A neighbor said, “It will be a massive house. What they have already is a substantial family home, but to double and add a bit on will make it a real mansion.”
All we can think about in this recent 90-degree heat is how we live in a one-bedroom, one-air conditioner apartment and we shudder to think what their air conditioning bill would be. But who are we kidding? Gwyneth probably has polar ice flown in to cool her home naturally. [Photo: GettyImages]
Poor little Gwyneth Paltrow. The GOOP-y actress is apparently pissy over all the publicity her Iron Man 2 costar Scarlett Johansson is getting these days for her role as the sexy Black Widow. Paltrow plays the mousey Pepper Potts in the hit franchise, and is supposedly fuming that ScarJo’s being included in press for the flick (like on the cover of Entertainment Weekly) and she is not. Doesn’t the press know she specifically cleansed just to promote the flick with a bunch of mag covers? The audacity!
“Gwyneth was afraid she’d be upstaged by Scarlett and not being in the campaign was the final straw,” revealed an insider. “She is furious she’s been left out.”
Paltrow’s peeps deny the claims of jealousy, but we wouldn’t put it past her. After all, this is the lady who infamously included a little blind item in one of her GOOP newsletters that was reportedly about ex-BFF Winona Ryder. Gwyneth doesn’t play nice! [Photos: GettyImages]
It’s not just Gwyneth Paltrow who “enjoys” the strict denial of food to pass her lips. Super-sporty Matthew McConaughey has revealed that he also indulges in a few days of good ol’ starvation to Zen him out, hitting the road for a 10-day liquid-only fast.
“I’m high and clean and tight, man. It’s good to feel hungry. If you keep filling your tank when it’s three-quarters empty, you’re gonna run on old fuel. So you gotta drive it down to empty and let it work. I came down here to press a little reset and then head back down the road,” he told the Sunday Times magazine.
Right. Nice car analogy, Matteus. But last time we tried to “drive it down to empty” we broke down and had to call out for roadside assistance. So what we’re saying is…no freakin’ way. [Photo: Splash News Online]
The latest edition of Gwyneth Paltrow‘s e-newsletter GOOP dropped in our inboxes this morning, and once again the actress is championing the power of skipping solid foods to detox the body. This time Gwynnie is plugging something called the “Clean” cleanse, during which she existed on “mostly juice” for three weeks. That sounds about as pleasant as watching Shallow Hal, but the bony blond is heralding it as “amazing.”
Says Paltrow, “…this program allowed me to work and exercise regularly, something I cannot do if I am on a liquid-only detox. I followed it to the letter and I can report that it worked wonders. I feel pure and happy and much lighter (I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious Ã¢â‚¬Å“relax and enjoy life phaseÃ¢â‚¬Â about a month ago).”
We want to like Gwyneth, we really do, but there’s something about her that’s just so exasperating. Maybe it’s all those “extra pounds” that bug us? Eh, whatever. We can’t be bothered to worry about it, as we’ve gotta go eat lunch – or as some people call it, “relax and enjoy life.”
Poor Coldplay singer Chris Martin. If it wasn’t bad enough having to deal with Gwyneth Paltrow and her GOOP-y lifestyle day in and day out, now he’s being targeted by Noel Gallagher (right) for being too squeaky clean. Gallagher, while speaking to Italian newspaper Corriere della Serra said that drugs are one of the biggest perks of the rock star life.
“I look at Chris Martin who says he has never taken drugs in his life and I think he is an idiot. Doing drugs is the most beautiful thing about being in a rock band.” Hilariously, Gallagher then said, “I stopped because it is bad for your health, brain, life and for people around you.” Before coming clean in 1998, Gallagher reportedly spent nearly two million dollars on drugs. Considering the fact that Gallagher is the poster boy for bad behavior and destructive relationships, we think Martin is doing just fine taking a different path — even if he dresses like Sergeant Pepper sometimes.

In an interview with the Associated Press recently, Gwyneth Paltrow not only spoke fluent Spanish for the entire thing, but she gushed about how amazing she, uh, we mean Spain, is. Not the first time Gwynnie has gushed about an adopted home, a few years ago she compared America to the UK and said, “The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans.”
When asked about her love for Spain, Paltrow said: “It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it’s from 500 B.C., it’s incredible.” We think that’s great and technically we agree Spain is a beautiful, historic place, it’s just that, when Gwyneth says it, doesn’t it just sound kind of condescending? Here are a few more things that made our stomachs turn.
1. Gwyneth launched a Spanish-language version of her website, GOOP.com.
2. Gwyneth speaks to her children in Spanish at home (big whoop, we learned how to count to 20 in Spanish from Sesame Street).
3. Gwyneth would love to take an acting role in Spanish. Hey, if Penelope Cruz can keep getting work in English, anything es posible.
4. Gwyneth is writing a cookbook on Spanish-influenced cuisine.
Oh, por favor. We used to think Paltrow was cool but lately it’s all gotten to be too much. Makes us want to have at our old Rosetta Stone tapes so we can say with proper inflection, “Hey lady, don’t forget about Shallow Hal! That was you in that fat suit.” [Photo: WireImage]
