Is it really even fair to include models in the Bikini Awards? Well, it’s kinda like when they allowed professional athletes into the Olympics — it’s a bummer for the amateurs but much more fun for those of us watching at home. So, here we present you with nine professional posers posing in their best bikinis.
Today the Supreme Court of the United States finally ruled that DOMA is illegal, which basically means same sex spouses are entitled to federal benefits. (They were a little more wishy-washy on California’s Prop 8, deciding that proponents of the gay marriage ban can’t appeal the federal district court’s ruling that struck down the law.) While there are many pressing matters that we need the Supreme Court to rule on, gay marriage most certainly is not one of them. Hear us out on this: It doesn’t take a team of experts for us to know that when two adults love each other and want to spend their lives together, it’s not only perfectly fine, it’s awesome–and YES, they deserve spousal benefits.
For some reason, people keep taking forever to prove points that should be obvious to just about everyone. Here are five obvious things that we don’t need a panel of experts to understand.
For instance, I don’t think we need the Supreme Court to tell us that Kate Upton has amazing boobs.
Has someone been eating too much at The Gossip Table? Country star and judge of The Voice Blake Shelton has put some weight on lately. Noah Levy reports that insiders say it’s because he has started eating and drinking more. The singer is reportedly stressed out about all the rumors of trouble in his marriage to Miranda Lambert. Looks like he’s got a voice of his own stuck in his head.
Who is Kate Upton hooking up with now? Hint: It’s not P. Diddy. Marianne Garvey has the dish.
Like many of us, we first noticed Kate Upton when she taught us how to Dougie at a Clippers game in 2011. Then she appeared on the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in that bikini, and stole our hearts forever.
Is Prince Harry taking over the United States of America? What vehicle did Terrence Howard just lose in his divorce? All this, plus an exclusive clip from the new Mark Ruffalo and Jesse Eisenberg movie, Now You See Me. Read more…
We’ve heard of establishments with a “No Shirt, No Service” rule and we’ve heard of swanky restaurants with a “Jacket Required” pre-requesiate. We’ve never heard of a place where you have to wear a jacket, but go topless, but according to this year’s sexiest magazine covers, it’s the latest and greatest fashion trend that will never hit the mainstream.
Did Diddy or didn’t Diddy? That is the question concerning his alleged hookup with Bikini Queen Kate Upton! The two were reportedly seen getting more-than-friendly at the Miami nightclub LIV, living it up in the VIP section late last month, and now they’ve apparently reunited in New York this week.
OK, last night’s Super Bowl featured plenty of the old-school ads: a woman in a bikini advertising the “topless” Fiat, guys doing ridiculous things to get good luck for their team, Bar Refaeli kissing a nerd (god, we still can’t get that sound out of our heads!). But as if to match Beyonce and her all-female band, the commercials seemed to be heavily tilted towards women (and the sensitive men we love), at least compared to most sporting events. (Which, duh, in 2011 and 2012, ladies made up 45 percent of the Super Bowl TV audience, so it’s about damn time!) We already had a hint that this was happening last week, when we got sneak peeks at the Seth Rogen/Paul Rudd-led Samsung ad and the “Space Babies” Kia commercial. Here are more of our favorites:
1. Calvin Klein “Concept”
This one wins the prize for most gratuitous use of a topless model, male or female. But we’d be lying if we said we didn’t rewind it at least once. Read more…
A lot of celebrities had double duty on Saturday night as there were a number of Super Bowl parties happening in New Orleans, most notably the GQ Super Bowl Party with Lil Wayne performing and the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl, where Justin Timberlake brought Jay-Z onstage. The celebs at the earlier party were pretty casual, but they cleaned up quite nicely for the evening to-do. Except Josh Hutcherson and Chace Crawford, who showed up in denim and a baseball cap and a lot of facial scruff, respectively. They should have taken style cues from Ryan Kwanten and Matt Bomer who both nailed it in sharp suits.
Of course, our eyes were trained on one very gorgeous Ian Somerhalder who turned out in a simple black shirt and jeans. Simple … but perfect, as always. The two ladies in attendance also did quite nicely. Kate Upton slicked on some red lipstick, twisted her hair up in a messy updo and slid into some skinny black pants, a leather bomber jacket and a pair of dark cherry-pointed pumps. Can’t really go wrong with that, right? Hayden Panettiere also took on a three-piece combination but topped hers with a white blazer and beautifully ironed shiny hair. The piece de resistance was her neon orange pumps. It takes a lot to upstage Kate, but we think Hayden managed it. Have a look at our gallery below to see full-length pictures of everyone in attendance.
Just last week, the new Mercedes Super Bowl ad was all about Kate Upton washing the swankin’ new car in slow motion. Of course, there was talk of it being pulled off the air because it was too sexy for audiences. Has that talk achieved its purpose? Because the extended cut of the advertisement — see it above — has been released and there’s a lot less Kate in it, and she’s also a lot more clothed! At the same time, we love this ad and you will too, even with Kate being in it for five seconds. Set to the soundtrack of Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones, the story’s about your regular, everyday Joe being tempted in the form of the always awesome Willem Dafoe, portraying Lucifer. Lucifer offers him everything — money, beautiful women (that’s where a Marilyn Monroe-esque Kate is featured,) fame (he parties and dances with Usher) and the fast life. Will average Joe take up the offer? That remains to be seen. Watch the video!
