What they’re wearing: The quintet performed at the London Olympic closing ceremony dressed in very dapper casualwear. What you see is an array of slim-fit chinos, crisp button-ups, converse sneakers, tailored jackets, and of course Zayn’s fedora.
Why we love it: The band coordinated their looks in a cool and neutral colour scheme, which consisted of blues, greys, and whites. This way, they each maintained their own respective styles while looking like a cohesive group. (Hence no real outstanding favourite!) Together, the looks are the perfect balance of dressed-up and relaxed cool, which makes sense for such an important occasion (I’m looking at you hoodie-wearing Ed Sheeren!). While the Olympics are an important international event, the closing ceremony is essentially a big farewell party.
Takeaway You can essentially wear any of these looks for day or night. Well, perhaps not Harry’s suit, but a well-tailored suit is still a must-have regardless! Sidenote: last week I talked about untucked shirts — well untucked shirts become hipper with a buttoned collar button.
Mel C (aka Sporty Spice)
What she’s wearing: Sporty Spice joined the other Spice Girls in a custom JD Sports jumpsuit at the 2012 London Olympic closing ceremony.
Why we love it: While One Direction coordinated their looks, we knew the Spice Girls were gonna give us a major fashion show. How can they not with fashion icon Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) in the mix? I know picking a single Spice Girl as best dressed is controversial because everyone has their favourite Spice Girl. But when it comes down to it, Melanie C. was a total standout amongst the other ladies and yet stayed true to her Sporty Spice style in this white jumpsuit. The outfit has a killer silhouette, is embellished with a sparkly rhinestone belt, has slits in the side to show off some skin, and is accessorized with silver high-heeled sneakers that any serious sneaker-lover would die for.
Takeaway: While the silhouette might be a little much for everyday, try rocking a flare jean and pant to change things up. The skinny leg has become the standard silhouette for pants and jeans but going with a flare or a wide-leg trouser will make you look fashion forward (major upcoming trend!) and will flatter most body types.
Silver goes to: Mel B/Scary Spice gets points for wearing a risqué glittery beaded catsuit by Zuhair Murad. Bronze to Emma/Baby Spice for wearing a modern architectural neon pink Maggie Cook dress. A good job but I expected more from Posh in her black Giles Deacon mullet gown and Geri/Ginger Spice in her strapless red mini and ruffled Union Jack by Suzanne Neville.
What he’s wearing: The English actor wore a steel blue Gucci suit to the premiere of his new movie Cosmopolis in New York City.
Why we love it: Despite all the personal drama going on his life right now, Pattinson had us feeling blue in a good way. The varying shades of blue keeps this look cool and sophisticated. Although it’s a small detail, the textured black tie gives it that something extra. BTW sometimes suits tend to look the same so it’s actually all in the details and cut. The leather lace-ups keep things polished. R-Patz is also giving One Direction’s Zayn a run for his money with that loose and casual bouffant of his.
Takeaway: Monochromatic outfits (those in varying shades of one colour) can be tricky but quite remarkable if pulled off correctly. Try staying within a shade range so that the colour transitions from one shade to the next, without jumping from one extreme to another. Also note that two-button jackets are flattering for most-guys and are on-trend.

Robert Pattinson must have expected the obligatory, intrusive breakup questions when he appeared on Jon Stewart last night but according to The Daily Show host everything is less scary when you have the ultimate breakup remedy on hand — a carton of ice cream and a spoon.
The Twilight and Cosmopolis star joked about not knowing how to deal with slightly intimidating questions about his scandalous breakup with Kristen Stewart, who
“had a moment of indiscretion” cheated on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. ”God, I thought we already prepared this. I had a joke prepared!” he told Stewart. “I was all set up and ready to go.”
You have to give Pattinson some credit. For an actor who’s already quite
reserved awkward in interviews it must be tough for him to handle such personal questions.
Luckily Stewart had some helpful breakup advice for RPatz: “last time I had a bad breakup, Ben & Jerry’s got me through some of the tougher times. So I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about ‘boy, you are better off, kick her to the curb.”
Watch it here:
Will Ferrell appeared on Conon last night to promote his new movie The Campaign that he stars alongside Zach Galifianakis as political rivals. He didn’t seem to be acting himself, and soon broke out into an emotional outburst after Conon questioned his well beings.
“I don’t know if you follow the news at all but there’s this actress, Kristen Stewart – she goes by KStew. She had a boyfriend, right? Robert Pattinson, he’s RPatz and she cheated on him.” O’Brien tried to assure Ferrell (who’s definitely acting like a total Twi-Hard) that everything would be okay, but he burst back shouting, “What they had was so special, Conan! You don’t even know what they had! They were in love and she just threw it all away!”
Okay I mean he does has a point, what’s going to happen with the next installment from the Twilight series. Awkz. Do you think they’ll be able to work things out?
While Carly Rae Jepsen is doing her best to dodge an alleged nude photo scandal, Lady Gaga just puts it all out there. Her recently posted nude photo is certainly one way to grab attention, whether you think it’s artistic or not. She posted the photo to her social networking site LittleMonsters.com and although she supposedly has nude underwear on, it’s hard to tell.
Alongside the photo she wrote: ”Resting after BARNEY’S GAGA WORKSHOP OPENING IN NY.” Her new site has tons of other amazing photos, including pics of her and Lindsay Lohan’s slumber party at the Chateau Marmont.
If you think about it, Lady Gaga is doing a total solid for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson by taking some of the unwanted media attention away from them. Plus, you’ve got to give it to the girl for baring it all for her fans!
She her tweet below:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Christian Bale visits the survivors of the Colorado shooting, and LMFAO is accused of firing a bikini girl for being big boned.
HIT: Christian Bale visits the Colorado theatre shooting memorial and meets the survivors
The Batman star and his wife visited the Aurora, Colorado hospital where seven survivors are being treated for their injuries after the mass shooting during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises. He asked staff beforehand not to notify the media as he wasn’t there to represent the studio, but instead, himself. Bale reportedly spent two and a half hours at the hospital and also paid a visit to the memorial near the movie theater. It’s nice to see that he went beyond his duty as the star of the franchise, by answering the pleas of the Facebook campaign asking him to visit. He became a real hero to all Batman fans. We can now add Bale to the list of “celebrities who are awesome.”
MISS: Justin Bieber, Drake Bell Twitter drama
Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell tweeted it was ridiculous for artists to have autobiographical films when they haven’t been around for all that long, referring to Katy Perry. Later, he said his account had been hacked and he “… wouldn’t randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol.” Then things went CRAY. Fans tweeted the expected “you’re just jealous” comments, but one also sent him a photo of a knife and he received threats of death by stoning. This is why you don’t upset Beliebers people! They mean business.
HIT: Rupert Grint runs with the Olympic Torch
I hate watching sports on TV, but I love the Olympics. I also love all things British, and that includes Harry Potter. I was super stoked to see Rupert Grint run with the torch and it brought a happy, proud tear to my eye. Now, if the Olympic Committee has Doctor Who’s David Tennant run with the torch like he did in one episode, I may just start bawling. Please higher beings, make it happen.
MISS: Kristen Stewart cheats on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White director Read more…
Did you feel that shift in the wind this today? That was when we got the
confession apology letter from Kristen Stewart, dedicated to everyone she upset after cheating on Robert Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. That subtle but visible change in temperature was due to all the Twihards losing their FREAKING MINDS.
And now it’s starting.
This will be our life for the next couple days — nay weeks — people. Reaction videos, top ten lists about why Kristen sucks or rocks and parodies about her awkwardness (which I happen to love). Experts will theorize about how they saw it coming through the couple’s stiff body language, cursive handwriting and “telling” facial expression. This is the state of pop culture people…
Through all the media cacophony there’s at least one reasonable voice. Okay, it’s not really reasonable at all. In fact, this video from nuttymadam3575 is just a sampling of the reaction videos to come. We’d just like to remind everyone that Kristen Stewart is in fact a different person than Bella Swan and that Robert Pattinson is not ACTUALLY Edward Cullen. Kay, glad we sorted that out.
The thing that bothers me most about this whole “OMG Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson” scandal isn’t that we’re so feeble that we crumble whenever the shiny veneer of Hollywood demi-gods fades (because it seems like we do), it’s that our teeth come out and we judge judge judge.
Pretty much everyone knows by now through Twitter, Facebook, blogs or just a friend calling them up to bare teeth that 22-year-old K-Stew had an intimate relationship with 41-year-old Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
At first it was gleefully trilled by Hollywood rags with photo evidence but then we got confirmation from Stewart herself, who went straight into public apology mode: ”I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” she said in a statement to People. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
Sanders, who is married to model-actress Liberty Ross, later issued an apology too: ”I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family.” He also said: ”My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
According to Perez Hilton, Ross, who appeared as Stewart’s mother in the movie, allegedly posted this photo on Instagram and later disabled her Twitter.
And so far, no word from RPatz camp.
It seems that never so closely is a career and social life tied up than in Hollywood. The Twitterverse is alight with people behind computer screens slaying her. And yes, it was wrong but don’t forget that Sanders is the 41-year-old here with a wife and children. Both are at fault.
While some of the tweets are pretty harsh, other are more perceptive.
Tell us: what do you think about the Stewart/Sanders affair? More importantly, do you think everyone gets too involved?
One of the
worst best parts of reading celebrity gossip rags is that they justify your seemingly banal life by providing photo evidence of celebrity GODS (in their books) doing the exact same thing you did just a couple days ago. The best part is that they feature the photos non-ironically, as though they actually believe celebrities are a different species, to be studied from an anthropological perspective. ”Hey look!” they say. “Alexander Skarsgard also uses grocery baskets to store his eggs and Hamburger Helper. Gosh, here I though I was the only one. What a relief”
Check out Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth (above) skateboarding down the street. I was sure they were chartered around their city in roomy private jets. In fact, sometimes they’ll skate down the street just to get Freezie.
I confirm it’s true. The celebrities that walk among us aren’t pods. They are REAL people. Just like you. And I will prove it. [Note: Our version is meant to be ironic.]
They take cheesy tourist photos!!
Check out Jelena (FYI that’s Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber) posing in front of a graffitied-wall in Japan. Selena tweeted: ”Hi Japan. I heart you.” I’m pretty sure I have this exact same photo in much less spectacular places, including my local dog-friendly park and in front of the fireplace for a family Christmas card. Note that Jelena resorted to the awkward “I don’t know what to do with my hands, screw it I’ll just do the peace sign” pose, JUST LIKE YOU.
What a relief.
They grocery shop!!
I was confident celebrities sent minions to pick up their celery and wheatgrass shots but some of them deign to set foot in a grocery store. Taylor Swift even wheels her own cart. Just like you.
What a relief.
They bite their nails!! Read more…
Forbes recently released their list of highest earning celebrities from May 2011 to May 2012. As if we already don’t feel bad about putting our coffee on a credit card, let’s ogle at stars who have oodles of moolah and then drop our heads and cry.

6. Adele — $35 million
5. Katy Perry — $45 million Read more…
In the new trailer for Breaking Dawn Part 2, we finally get a better look at the plot. Bella is now a newly turned vampire and mother to Renesmee but her entire family is in danger when the Volturi hear about her new child.
For non-Twilight fans: child vampires are strictly forbidden because they can’t control their emotions and can be manipulated to kill muchos humans.
I’m pretty dayam excited about the film, but I imagined Bella would have gone through a more drastic transformation. Admittedly that’s the main reason we were all so angry when the last film ended. They were all like, PSYCH suckers, gotta see the next film to get a glimpse of Bella as a vampire.
The film is in theatres on Nov. 16, so we still have a while to wait. In the meantime Kristen Stewart is certainly raking in the cash. It was just revealed that she’s the highest earning actress in Hollywood right now. The girl pulled in $34.5 million in a year. Chunk change.
Watch it here:
Come right this way folks, follow the red velvet rope along and marvel at these photo masterpieces, portraying celebrities at their
finest drunkest. Hush young socialite, it’s okay. It happens to your dowdy, non-famous neighbour next door as much as it does to you. Unfortunately you’re more likely to be the victim of a pants-less time capsule gifted by the paparazzi than the guy with a flip-cam next door. [Source]

We’ve finally solved the eternal mystery of what in the world is cuter than the guys of One Direction. It was a seemingly puzzling riddle with an easy solution: One Direction as les babies. Look how ADORBZ they are. But quick question: why are both Liam Payne and Niall Horan holding toy guns? They’re like baby snipers.
Anyway, here are some other adorable baby photos of celebs like Robert Pattinson, Drake and Usher. Who do you think is the cutest?

Trend: Ombré nails
While everyone seems to be dying their hair ombré (where the colour gradually changes from dark to light), for those indecisive folk, try your hand at ombré nails. It’s a lot easier to change up nail colours rather than hair colour. There are varying nail tutorials on the Internet, but the sponge technique seems to the be the easiest. It may seem hard at first, but practice makes perfect!

She may not be talking for a while, since she just got out of throat surgery, but you can relive an amazing Adele moment where she speaks out about Miley, Twilight and Gwyneth Paltrow.
I personally could listen to Adele sing or talk forever. Give me a 24 hour Adele channel, and I’m so there. I love hearing Adele speak her mind about pop culture. She’s one of the few artists that isn’t afraid to say if she hates something or someone. She’s certainly my number one celeb to interview.
Check out this rad interview with Adele as she stands up for Miley. “It’s not like it was her fault she was a Disney star. She was growing up, you know?”
And, when asked about the newest Twilight movie, she has a bone to pick with one vampire in particular.
“People here [in England] think he’s American. It’s like ‘no, no no, he belongs to us, thanks!” she says of Robert Pattinson.
The guy interviewing her asked if she reads GOOP (Gwyneth Paltrow’s pretentious online lifestyle magazine). Adele said no, adding “it sounds like 2 girls 1 cup!”
Check out the hilarious interview below. Pardon the subtitles!
The former “Sexiest Man Alive” actor is coming off as a bit jealous since the new Twilight movie comes out in theatres the same say his film, The Descendants.
George Clooney joked with E! and said “the big headlines come Monday morning will be “Descendants Kicks The Hell Out of Breaking Dawn”.
The Twilight flick is expected to make $125 million on opening weekend. The dramatic Clooney flick directed by Alexander Payne has a lot of OScar buzz to it but I don’t see it being a box-office smash. Clooney’s great and all but this is the cast of the Twilight franchise he’s up against. Nothing could ever stop every single young person in the world from going to see Robert Pattinson sex up Kristin Stewart this weekend,
Vampires and werewolves unite! The cast of twilight were joined by a number of celebrity friends as they took to the black carpet at Monday’s premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.
Fans queued for days by the theatre to score autographs and pictures from their favourite Twilight actors such as Kirsten Stewart, and heartthrobs Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Also in attendance were Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, singer Cody Simpson, 90210’s Matt Lanter and Bruno Mars, who’s song “It Will Rain” is featured on the soundtrack.
One thing is for sure – the cast dressed to impress! Stewart, who plays Bella Swan, was all smiles as she stunned the crowd with her J Mendel purple sequined dress with a thigh high slit revealing her never-ending legs.
Robert Pattinson took away the breath of every girl in the audience, no doubt, looking as dashing as ever in a crisp
Taylor Lautner was dressed to perfection in his grey suit and purple tie. Is that a Movember moustache we see him sporting? We like!
The Cullen boys took to the red carpet in individual styles. Kellan Lutz blending in to the carpet with his all-black ensemble, making his blue eyes stand out quite nicely. Peter Facinelli wore a blue suit and scarf, overtop a white button down shirt. Jackson Rathbone proved his individuality by sporting a red velvet suit – wow!
The women of the Cullen clan looked ravishing. Ashely Greene was seen in a sultry red Donna Karan strapless tulle dress. Elizabeth Reaser wore a vintage beaded dress that lit up the carpet, and Nikki Reed put on asimple yet stunning green, over-the-shoulder chiffon dress.
Stephenie Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Bruno Mars, Danica Patrick, Liam Hemsworth, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner all graced the carpet with their presence.
This is the epitome of groundbreaking journalism: MTV posted highlights of their exclusive interview with the three stars of Twilight, including a lengthy discussion about abs.
Seated next to Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson playfully discussed having to work out before filming his scenes. We all know Taylor Lautner is rocking a great bod, we see him shirtless all the time, we get it! I could literally wash my laundry on his abs. Robert felt it was unfair to compare his body to that of Taylor’s.
“Everyone says I painted on my abs in ['New Moon'] — I did not! Taylor has his painted on too!” Robert said. ”During [filming in] Brazil, the day before I had to do my shirtless scene, I realized [my abs] weren’t as good as Taylor’s, so I just ate every bit of chocolate in the mini-bar. I started eating cheeseburgers and stuff.”
In a classic Team Edward versus Team Jacob fight, the award for best abs should be a tie-breaker. I’m sure Kristen would agree. Eat all the cheeseburgers you want, guys, if you’re not sporting a pot belly you’ll still a winner!
Kristen, Robert and Taylor were the three cast members of Twilight to attend the hand print ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in west Hollywood.
Kristen Stewart News posted a ton of photos of the event. The trio looked beautiful, appreciative and thrilled to be immortalized at the theatre. Judy Garland, Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington and Marilyn Monroe are among the iconic stars with prints displayed at Grauman’s. Looks like these three are going to be in great company.
When Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens on November 18, it will definitely be a blockbuster hit. I wouldn’t be surprised if it breaks any ticket sale records.
Are you doing anything next Thursday, November 3 at 7:56 p.m. ET? If not, mark it on your calendar.
Three of Twilight‘s biggest stars, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will appear on MTV to introduce a never-seen-before clip of the highly anticipated blockbuster film, Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.
The trio will also stick around after the clip to participate in a lengthy Q&A session hosted by MTV’s Josh Horowitz. When the three are together in the same room you know things will get very intimate and interesting. We like how anything can happen during this MTV special. KStew, Taylor and RPattz are never a dull moment.
