Are you the sort of person who scrolls down to see what shoes celebrities are wearing when you see an outfit that interests you? Then this is the list for you. Even if you aren’t a shoe fanatic, this is still a fun exercise, to be honest. We’ve compiled together our list of the top 25 most drool-worthy heels, platforms and boots spotted on celebrities in 2012. And to make it even more interesting, when you visit the gallery below, we’ve put pictures of the shoes first, with the celebrity reveal right after, so you can have a go at guessing who the gorgeous heel, platform, pump, bootie or boot belongs to! The caption on each celebrity reveal will also tell you what brand the shoe is and where and when it was worn. All our favourite celebrities are in there: Beyonce, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and a whole host more.
A couple of spoilers, though. We won’t tell you the color of the shoes so you can still have a guess when you look through the pictures. We adore Mila Kunis‘ Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ and Miley Cyrus‘ Jimmy Choo ‘Tippi” pumps, respectively. Bella Thorne‘s Miu Miu platform booties are to die for, as are Rooney Mara‘s YSL ‘Tribtoo’ slingbacks. Have a blast figuring out which is which. We wish you a happy and well-heeled rest of 2012!

Watch your ever-dwindling back, Matthew McConaughey! Nicole Kidman wants to steal the Academy’s hearts and minds next year, and she’s attempting to do it without losing sixty to eighty pounds to do it. Maybe she’ll slap on a blond fall and a little cheekbone highlighter, but that’s it! Currently filming her Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco in Monaco, Kidman stepped out in a winter coat and ballgown yesterday looking like a dead ringer for the famous actress-turned-royalty. Then again, Kidman has always been a biopic hound.
When Zac Efron burst onto the scene with Disney’s megasmash High School Musical back in 2006, we were sort of suspicious. His 21st century David Cassidy good looks were just a little too perfect. It’s like was created in some kind of teen heartthrob lab, specifically designed to breed cover-boys for Tigerbeat. Case in point? That perfectly mussed hair, those ice blue eyes (not unlike those possessed by fellow Disney star Selena Gomez’s puppy) that sculpted chin…It was too much! Plus he was getting nude pictures sent to him by his smoking hot costar Vanessa Hudgens at the time, so that didn’t help. We’ll admit it: we were hugely jealous of the guy.
But then as the years passed, we started to like him. Like a cool older brother, Zac taught us many things. Like how to unhook a bra with one hand, and the importance of carrying protection on you at all times. Even on the red carpet! Plus we hear he’s a generous tipper, which is always the sign of a good dude. You’re alright, Efron! Today’s Zac’s 25th birthday, so to celebrate we’ve assembled 25 of his hottest looks from over the years. Follow his transformation from squeaky clean High School Music jock to…getting peed on by Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy, and everything in between. Enjoy!

We found this piece on the Harper’s Bazaar November cover celebrity, Nicole Kidman, rather interesting. She reveals things about herself that we never would have attributed to her. It’s all about perception right? And admit it, you’ve always thought that Nicole, phenomenal actress that she is, is staid and a bit boring in real life, right? We did! No shame in that, and it’s nice to see her being so on the down-low with husband, Keith Urban, whom she describes as “more like an ocean; he took me out.” The interview does delve into their relationship deeper, and she goes on to say, “He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sorts of things.” But you want to know about the what surprised us about her, right? Well, this is Bazaar’s “Daring” issue, and even though she may not see herself as bold, she not only used to jump out of planes, but also used to “do arabesques on the wing. I have a video of it! I used to really love those extreme sensations. I still do. Hmm, is that daring or is that just an extremist?” She also likes to go scuba diving at night because, “I find it strangely peaceful, out of my body. It straightens me out.” See what we mean? Whole different side of Nicole, and we like it!

Nicole Kidman was the guest of honor at a gala put together in tribute of her at the 50th Annual New York Film Festival yesterday. For the occasion, the actress slipped into a red-and-black printed dress and matching red heels — both by one of her favorite go-to designer’s, L’Wren Scott — with a Roger Vivier clutch and a Fred Leighton bracelet. We think the dress is interesting on her and would have been even more so if she had worn contrast shoes with it. But she does, as usual, look pretty flawless and well put-together. This was her second wardrobe change for the day. She was at a press conference for her film The Paperboy earlier, with director Lee Daniels and co-star David Oyelowo, wearing the classic ensemble you see on the right comprising a grey Dior dress, L’Wren Scott heels and an Omega watch. Simple — a tad boring again — but this was a Q&A and she looked as appropriate as need be. The conference was an interesting one too, as it came to light that Kidman refused to use the word “n—” in the film, much to director Daniels’ surprise, which he re-convyed to the audience. Her response, in front of the listening crowd, was slightly curt, but it explained exactly why. She said, “I didn’t feel like it was right for the character. I have a son who’s African American and I just didn’t feel it was right. It wasn’t right.”

We’ve seen what lots of crossover stars wore on the Emmys red carpet. By that we mean actresses who we’ve seen in films but have lead roles in major television dramas now. Like Ginnifer Goodwin (love the orange gown), Zooey Deschanel and Claire Danes (yellow gown fail, sadly.) We even saw the grand Jessica Lange winning ‘Best Supporting Actress In A Miniseries’ for American Horror Story and Julianne Moore (another yellow misstep, but love her anyway) who won ‘Best Actress In A Miniseries’ for Game Change. But there were other bonafide movie stars attending the event — ladies who we associate with the film world even if they dabble on the TV world. Nicole Kidman led the way looking statuesque in a white Antonio Berardi column with aqua sequined overlay. It’s unusual, and we still have to mull over whether we like it or not. Kate Mara requires no mulling over because she looked fabulous in a soft, vintage-looking Badgley Mischka dress with Christian Louboutin shoes. Ashley Judd, sadly, took us to the other end of the like spectrum: dislike. Her plum custom Carolina Herrera did her no favors and she looked fussy and matronly, especially with that bouffant up-do. Lucy Liu brought the glam right back in a metallic mesh Versace column. Trust her to set it straight again. We end on a low note though — saving the not-so-best for last. Amanda Peet, why would you wear this? The lovely actress looked washed out and insipid in an ill-fitting pale pink Calvin Klein gown. Want a closer look? Head on to our gallery.

We don’t even want to go into the hair. There just aren’t enough hours in the 24/7 news cycle to discuss the half-shaved pink-and-lime studded business sprouting from Avril Lavigne‘s scalp at her Abbey Dawn fashion show in New York last night. Plus we don’t want to have to admit that we kind of like it. What we don’t like, however, is the greasy conjunctivitis-chic Avril chose to smear around her peepers. We guess you’d call it a smokey eye, in as much as our eyes started billowing smoke the second we looked at it. While we’d argue that Avril’s hotness still manages to shine through, that is not the case with these other makeup disasters…

This is the same woman who played Virginia Woolf! And Diane Arbus! And is about to play Grace Kelly! Which is probably why we’re so into Nicole Kidman‘s reinvention as a southern-fried sex kitten (a regional delicacy!) for Lee Daniels‘ The Paperboy. It looks like Nicole is even more into than we are, however, seeing as how she got topless and bottomless for her trashy-hot V Magazine cover. “I don’t really make decisions,” Kidman says in her interview. “I go with the flow. If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career. But I would be more outlandish if I could. A lot of times you just don’t get the chance.” Yeah, considering Nicole’s won an Academy Award, this definitely qualifies as outlandish. Peeing on Zac Efron was just the beginning!
To be honest, the rest of Nicole’s Mario Testino-shot spread is even more revealing than her cover, and by that we mean Nicole is totes wearing a see-through bra. Meanwhile, director Daniels takes a moment to describe an aggressive sex scene between John Cusack and Kidman that takes place on top of a washing machine. Consider us scandalized. “At a certain point, I saw the bruises on her legs. So I said, ‘Nicole, are you okay?’ She lied. ‘I’m fine,’ she said. She wasn’t fine. I could see the bruises. But she kept going,” he says. Whaaaaa? Of all two people in the world! While we rewatch Cold Mountain and shake our heads, you can click the jump to check out the full cover, and that Academy Award-winning booty:
We don’t know why they buried these great cinematic shots of Zac Efron in soaking wet tightie whities in the middle of The Paperboy trailer. Shouldn’t the entire trailer just be a gif of his slow underpants dance with Nicole Kidman? Why we aren’t in control of these decisions, we’ll never know. We could tell you what the people want, Hollywood, if you would just listen!
Questionable editing decisions aside, the trailer does seem to deliver on the sweaty, over-the-top action we were anticipating from Lee Daniels‘ Southern-fried crime drama. There’s also a shot of Efron crawling on the beach in what we have to assume is the scene where Nicole Kidman pees on him to treat a jellyfish sting. We can’t wait to see how that scene makes any narrative sense in what appears to be murder mystery. We also can’t wait to see it because it involves Academy Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman peeing on former teen hearthrob Zac Efron. You know, maybe Hollywood doesn’t need our help after all. It seems like they’re getting at least some aspects of the filmmaking process right. Also right? These screencaps of Zac Efron:
Those pouty lips, that porcelain skin, that heart-shaped face…yeah, Once Upon A Time‘s Jennifer Morrison and Sebastian Stan are dating now, alright. They also look like they came out of the same womb! Did we just get too real on you? Of course, Jennifer and Sebastian wouldn’t be the first celebrity couple who, well, coupled with someone who looked shocking like him/her. Take a look at our other celebrity look-alike pairs if you don’t believe us. Of course, they’re all hot, so think of it this way: it’s not creepy, it just means they have good taste. And maybe it’s a little creepy…
