This shoot must’ve felt really weird for Rihanna. She’s typically not wearing this much clothing. Am I right or am I right?
“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” said Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing in WWD. “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”
The “Diamonds” singer makes her debut as Balmain’s latest celebrity ambassador in the first batch of photos for their Spring 2014 ad campaign. RiRi channels 90s realness with her curly bob while wearing a leather jumpsuit, super sexy houndstooth suit, gold chain link top and pink kimono-like robe. Frequent Lady Gaga photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snapped the visuals.
I have to say, I’m liking this curly coif and subtle natural-looking makeup on Rihanna. Haute couture really suits her. Let’s face it, love Rihanna, but she can sometimes look a little trashy. Check out more images below.
On March 11, 2014, Jay Leno and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are among six of the people being inducted into the 23rd TV Hall of Fame. Television Academy Chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum announced next year’s crop of honorees on Tuesday.
The four-time Emmy Award-winning actress and soon-to-depart late night legend will join more than 130 previously inducted alums. The Television Academy’s Hall of Fame Selection Committee held its first ceremony back in 1984, when Lucille Ball, Edward R. Murrow and Milton Berle were among the first honorees.
“The six individuals being inducted into the Hall of Fame have all made a profound impact on the landscape of television, leaving their own mark within our industry and with audiences around the world,” says CEO Bruce Rosenblum. “Their groundbreaking contributions will last for generations, making them true icons who could not be more deserving of the Television Academy’s highest honor.”
Iron Man 3 is the highest-grossing movie so far in 2013 with $1.2 billion in worldwide ticket sales. With those kind of receipts, one would think it’s star Robert Downey, Jr. would easily take the crown on Forbes Highest-Grossing list. It’s only a natural conclusion. Unfortunately for him, Robert only starred in one film the entire year. Sneaking past him to steal the title was someone who starred in four films. Here’s a little hint. It’s someone from the Fast and The Furious franchise.
Before we get to the winner, I just wanted to commend both Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lawrence for breaking into the male-dominated Top 10. Bullock knocked out the competition with her one-two punch of Gravity and The Heat, while Lawrence hit the bullseye with Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Check out the Top 10 below. In addition to the top slot, there are a couple of other surprises. At least for me, there was.
Even though Dylan Sprouse is 21-years-old and legal in every way, there’s something just a little wrong with this. Perhaps it’s due to the fact I used to work for an online kids/teen magazine and to me, the Sprouse twins will always be those adorable kids from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. While Dylan maintains his “leaked” nude photo isn’t a publicity stunt, it just feels like he’s the latest former Disney child star trying to shed his former wholesome image.
“Whoops, guess I’m not 14 and fat anymore … I messed up… but I’d be a fool not to own up to it. Got to move past it I suppose,” he tweeted. Love the fact he added “n00d pic dealer” on his Twitter bio. LOL. His twin brother also has a sense of humor. Cole wrote, “Cold in that bathroom, huh?,” to which Dylan responded, “Love you too.”
“The real problem here was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather, sending them to the WRONG someone. The real travesty is a misplaced trust, and while I am certainly to blame for it, it is a shame that my private life was somehow forcibly dragged into the public’s perception of me,” writes Sprouse on his Tumblr.
He goes on to talk about his new-found notoriety and even includes a Beyonce reference in his lengthy explanation about his leaked photo. Currently, Dylan isn’t in the business, but rather a student at NYU and works waiting tables on the side. Check out the full post below, along with the PG shirtless selfie pic.
Award season is officially underway! Even Grindr is getting in on the action. They recently released their best of 2013 year end list. From gay icon of the year (Neil Patrick Harris) to best comeback of the year (Netflix), users of the ubiquitous hookup app made their voice heard on a multitude of categories.
2013 was a banner year of celebrities coming out. Not surprisingly with all the headlines he generated, Wentworth Miller earned Grindr’s best coming out story. Solid choice. I was lucky enough to witness Miller’s first appearance after coming out at the HRC Gala Dinner in Seattle.
Along with revealing the best of the best in the past year, Grindr also weighed in on what they expect will be big and make headlines in 2014. Find out below who they think the next celebrity to come out is and what will become obsolete.
Donatella Versace is going all out for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. Just last week, we saw the first stunning photos featuring Mother Monster as their new spokesperson. Today, we feast our eyes on the lucky guy fronting their mens line.
Capturing the brand’s rebellious and youthful spirit is none other than Awkward and Glee star Nolan Gerard Funk. The 27-year-old actor looks dashingly handsome in their stylish suits and extremely ripped in their tight briefs. Check out more pics of Funk’s campaign below snapped by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
“I love our new Versace menswear campaign starring Nolan Funk,” said Donatella Versace. “He brings these iconic Versace pieces to life with his energy and spirit. The campaign is full of the essence of Versace, now and forever.”
Did you retweet in 2013? If you did, chances are pretty high you shared one of Twitter’s top three retweets of the year. Two of them involve a celebrity death while the other is a birthday shout-out. Not surprisingly, one of the most popular on the micro-blogging site is Lea Michele’s thanks to her fans for their support in the wake of Cory Monteith’s death. Check out the other two below, along with Twitter’s year in review video.
Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart. pic.twitter.com/XVlZnh9vOc

First and foremost, Happy Belated Birthday to Ian Somerhalder. The Vampire Diaries actor turned 35 on Sunday, December 8. His fans know him best for playing Damon Salvatore. For me, however, he’ll always be Boone from Lost or that guy who hit on James van der Beek in Rules of Attraction. I’m sure if he had the guns he has now (see picture above), Dawson might not have turned him down.
Somerhalder shows off his biceps on the cover of Annex Man’s latest issue. Snapped by photographer Bradford Rogne, Ian models an array of wardrobe including pieces by Ami, Neil Barrett, Mugler, Alexis Mabille and more. Check out some pics from his editorial featured in the publication’s Winter 2013/2014 issue, available now.
