As we gear up for the release of Rock of Ages this week, we’ve been looking back at some of the trends the nostalgic musical so lovingly celebrates, like Malin Akerman’s sexy rocker-chick look and Mary J. Blige’s flashy jumpsuits. More than any one fashion, the movie reminds us of one big trend the late ’80s and early ’90s were famous for: the groupie. Not just the girls who flashed their goods from the audience or hung around by the tour buses, either — there were plenty of high-profile ladies who were eager for a backstage pass. And some of them got a lot more than a private concert in the bargain.
As we gathered this list of our favorite celebrity-rocker pairs, from Cher and Gene Simmons to Tommy Lee and Heather Locklear, one other thing became very evident: All of these couples seemed to share taste in makeup, tight pants, big hair and baggy blazers. It even looks like Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli got their hair cut together. And maybe Rod Stewart and Rachel Hunter could swap blazers, while Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour traded acid-washed jeans. We’re not sure what exactly Melissa Gilbert and Billy Idol had in common, but, yeah, that happened!

If you wanna turn heads (and headlines) on the red carpet, all you gotta do is wear is see-through outfit with no underwear underneath! This approach has been getting C and D-listers some badly needed press at least since Rose McGowan strolled into the ’98 VMAs wearing a net and a piece of string. But occasionally even Oscar winning superstars feel the temptation to walk on the wild side and step out in a planned “wardrobe malfunction.” Everyone loves attention!
We guess the revealing LBD Gwyneth Paltrow wore to The Conversation launch last night in NYC isn’t too scandalous in compared to some of the other outfits that we’ve seen out and about in recent weeks. But the commando-style flesh flash does seem to be something of a trend lately. From low names like Melody Thornton and Adrienne Bailon to huge celebs like Rihanna and Lady Gaga, much of Hollywood has been going bare lately. Check out the (VERY NSFW) gallery below and see what we mean!

There are lots of times when we can ignore the fact that celebrities live better lives than us (like, this morning, when we read about Sinead O’Connor’s miserable love life, for instance). There are even times when we try to imagine that their lives are JUST LIKE our own (say, on Saturday when Paris, Prince and Blanket Jackson were on my JetBlue flight from the Bahamas to Orlando!!!). But then we get to work and browse through photos like the ones above and below, and realize we a) don’t have friends with yachts, and b) don’t have round-the-clock personal trainers and chefs to make us look amazing during the two months of the year when it’s impossible not to stuff your face daily. Anyway, at least we all get enjoy getting to look at pretty pictures. Democracy in action. Check out these pics of Katy Perry, Kimora Lee and Djimon Hounsou, Russell Simmons and Melissa George, Stephanie Seymour, Jon Bon Jovi, Serena Williams, Coco and Mischa Barton enjoying their Christmas weekend on the beach. And don’t miss our gallery of the 100 hottest celebrity bikini pics of 2011.

When Stephanie Seymour was in St. Bart’s a year ago (to the day!), she was caught up in an ugly divorce drama with estranged husband Peter Brant (who was at least giving her $270,000 a month for her troubles). The pair managed to patch things up last fall, though and took this year’s trip with the family together. Whoops, small correction—Seymour goes to St. Bart’s more than once a year (hey, you would if you could!).

Welcome to The Daily Hot – our round-up of the sexiest pics and stories on the interwebs. Today’s steaming pile of hotness:
The bad news? Due to Stephanie Seymour‘s reckless spending, the supermodel will receive only about a sixth of husband Peter Brant‘s net income each month while awaiting the outcome of their divorce. The good news? That still adds up to $270,000 a month. With that kind of stipend, we’d never want the litigation to end!
Court papers embellish Brant’s earlier accusation that she spends over $50,000 a month on clothes. “[Brant] said he did not understand why she was paying retail at Bergdorf’s when she could get clothes, at a discounted price, from the atelier in Paris of their friend, the designer Azzedine Alaia, who Mr. Brant considers to be the best couture designer of the 20th century.” Mo’ money, mo’ problems! Doesn’t your heart just bleed for these people?

Stephanie Seymour‘s ugly divorce from mega-millionaire polo-player Peter Brant isn’t getting any prettier. In new filings found by Page Six, Brant accuses Seymour of spending over $250,000 a month, with $5ok of that blown on clothes alone. Hopefully, she donates some of those stylish black girdles to charity when she’s done with them.
But it’s not the missing twigs from the polo player’s $489 million money tree that are really pissing him off. Seymour is allegedly stealing from his extensive art collection, even cutting a hole in his fence to make thieving easier. “In the past the plaintiff destroyed a valuable piece of art in anger, and recently destroyed the defendant’s Kentucky trophy.” Did it not fit through the hole? Seymour’s side has yet to comment, though we expect something juicy when they do.

Stephanie Seymour may want to keep things “amicable,” but the model’s split from billionaire publisher Peter Brant, her husband of 16 years, should be a knock-down drag-out war. The New York Post reports that since she filed for divorce two months ago, he’s locked her out of the house and threatened to deny her custody of their three children (aged 15, 12 and 4), claiming she’s an unfit mother. Said a friend, “she’s a big girl and she can take care of herself, but when it comes to her kids, I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
“I’m sleeping in the maid’s quarters,” Seymour allegedly told their source. “I want to be the bigger person. But it’s tough. He’s playing very dirty with me.”
Brant was married with five children when he began dating Seymour in 1993, shortly after her split from Axl Rose. The pair married after his divorce in 1995—with eldest Peter Jr. already a year old.
