More than trips to Paris and mascara tears, The Hills will be remembered for its connection to fashion. Not only did we covet the going-out tops and high heels Lauren, Heidi, Audrina, and Co. would sport during the work day or late nights out at Les Deux, we watched as they followed their dreams at FIDM, Teen Vogue, People’s Revolution, and beyond. Which means it’s not entirely out of left field that three years after the finale, three of the show’s protagonists have clothing lines of their own.
Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, joyful Kwanzaa, and — why not? — happy birthday too, while you’re at it! It’s the holiday seasons, folks; the time of year for giving to our nearest and dearest. And for you, dear readers, we could think of no better gift than 100 of the sexiest bikini photos that this year had to offer! We’ve got some of everybody, and we do mean everybody. There might even been one of you in there. We’ve got that many!
Of course this uber-gallery is presided over by Beyonce, who ruled over our 2012 Bikini Awards just like she does with the rest of the known universe. In fact, she was able to defy time and win the coveted award with pics that were (technically) from 2011. That’s the power of Queen Bey! In addition to her, our list is chock-full of other pop queens like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, and big-screen A-listers like Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba. TV personalities Maria Menounos and Angela Simmons made a strong showing, too. We’ve also got shots from the usual suspects like reality star Kim Kardashian, never-shy Twitter mama Adrianne Curry and Coco, the Patron Saint of Donks.
Some of our very own VH1 stars like Mob Wives’ Drita D’Avanzo and Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada put in an appearance, as did Hunger Games leading lady (and our personal favorite) Jennifer Lawrence. Professional hotties Kate Upton and Brooklyn Decker look straight out of the pages of Sports Illustrated, while Victoria’s Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima are simply heavenly.
So tear off the wrapping paper and dive in to our terrific 2012 retrospective of everyone’s favorite two-piece. Happy Holidays!

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 Perry who 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.

(It’s that time of year again! Welcome to TheFABlife Bikini Awards, where we pit half-naked celebs against each other and you vote for the finest skin-flaunter of the summer of 2011.)
Voting is now closed. Thanks for participating!
MTV and VH1 sure knows how to pick ‘em, eh? All the gorgeous ladies in our Reality Junkies category have done a stint on one — or both — of the networks. Whether they’re on the Shore or in Malibu, these women know how to werk it. But who’s the finest — Whitney Port, Heidi Montag, Deena Cortese or Audrina Patridge?
Just the name of this party itself would give us stress! Imagine the pressure to look, well, hot, at the Us Magazine Hot Hollywood Style Issue bash. Some stars caved, like Lauren Conrad, who needs to fire her entire entourage — hairdresser, stylist and make-up artist — stat. Her bun looks heavier than her whole body, she’s got this weird geisha white powder thing going on with her face and her sloppy blouson-teeny skirt ensemble just isn’t working. Jessica Szhor also seems to have been inspired by her namesake Jessica Lowndes bra-baring ensembles. The lace doesn’t make it classy, ladies.
Who did make it work was Camila Alves who was ridiculously sexy in a fire-engine red strapless dress with lips to match. Carmen Electra looked like a blonde Sofia Vergara, and knocked it out of the ball park with a simple metallic shift. Sara Rue, Pia Toscano, Alexa Vega, Paris Hilton (who looked really demure), Brooke Burke and Petra Nemcova all stepped it up in the wardrobe department as well. We’d also like to say that the magazine’s “Style Icon of the Year” Jessica Simpson is getting there one ensemble at a time. Really, really getting there. Good for you, Jess! For the rest of the H’wood hotties who attended the bash (*ahem*, we didn’t exclude the guys), check out our gallery below. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Coachella 2011 just ended and as usual, tons of stars were around – both onstage and off – at the music festival. They all wore their best hippie chic gear, as is evident with the likes of Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens (who, we kid you not, wore printed bell-bottoms). Some ladies did represent vintage, like Dita von Teese who looked like a 1940’s pin-up in a sailor hat, and Katy Perry, who went quasi-flapper!
It’s no secret that we have a massive crush on Ian Somerhalder and we’ve resolutely ignored rumors of him and Nina Dobrev dating because IT ISN’T HAPPENING. So him and Nina at Coachella? Casually almost draped over each other? Hanging out with Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger? Just because those two are a couple, doesn’t mean it’s a double date! (Someone hold us while we cry.) For more skinny — quite literally with ladies like Whitney Port and Kate Bosworth — on who was there, check out our gallery below. [Photos: Splash News Online]
The cast of Sucker Punch are really having their day in the sun. Never mind that they were quite badly dressed at the movie’s premiere. Nylon magazine tied in their 12th anniversary party with Sucker Punch’s release, and the event drew a fair amount of young Hollywood out of their mansions. FYI, Nylon’s April issue has 5 different covers for each of the 5 stars. Jena Malone was M.I.A at the party, but Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Emily Browning and Jamie Chung held the fort. On the whole, there was better dressing all around than from the premiere. Guess the gang finally called their stylists.
The party also brought out its share of starlets. Seen on the carpet were Brittany Snow, Samaire Armstrong, Nicky Hilton, Dania Ramirez and the like. Kelly Osbourne made an appearance too.

The CoverGirl 50th Anniversary Celebration yesterday in West Hollywood drew its fair share of stars. Drew Barrymore, who we adore, turned up in a bright orange Jil Sander that just missed the mark. We love the color, but we don’t get the weird elastic band around her knees? Also…what’s up with the two-tone hair, Drew? Otherwise, love you, as usual.
The brand’s latest CoverGirl, Taylor Swift also made an appearance, posing for photos with Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. Tay looked lovely in a strapless, sequined black dress, but the usual sparkle was missing in her smile, probably due to her split with Jake Gyllenhaal. Other celebrities included Sofia Vergara and Queen Latifah (wearing sunglasses and sneakers), plus starlets like Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, Amber Riley, Jessica Lowndes and Sophia Bush. Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and hubby Hank Baskett were hanging out too, with plenty of other ladies! Check them all out in the gallery below and tell us who was dressed best (and worst)?

Ke$ha debuted her NO-hawk last night at Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood gala. Seriously, what the hell is the deal with this girl? Crazy skimpy outfits decked out in fur, bizarre overdone eye-makeup, perpetually pissed off attitude and now this hair apparition? Oh my god….she’s turning into Rufio from Hook!
But thankfully not all celebs decided to come dressed as the Lost Boys. Chris Brown was out and about celebrating his status as the world champion of probation. Kelly Osboune and Mama Sharon looked regal, as did Brandy Norwood, who seemed cheery despite her controversial Dancing With The Stars dismissal. Check out the rest of the outfits in the gallery below!
