It seems as though Britney is catching herself in another dueling battle this week. First, Donovan brought us both Britney and Gaga’s latest magazine covers asking you who’s magazine dished out the better goods. The votes were so close but by 5 votes only (at the time of writing this article), Britney Spears took the win in her Harper’s Bazaar spread.
This time, Britney is pitting herself against the queen of reality TV, Kim Kardashian. Even though they were on opposite sides of the US, these two ladies both somehow found themselves wearing the same patterned mini. Britney really shows off her new fit bod while Kim’s wear really shows her curves. Both ladies opted for different footwear. Kim pulled off ultra high heels while Britney rocked some black boots. But ultimately, we just want to know who you think wore it better.
Know the saying “take a bite out of crime”? I’d rather take a bite out of Alexander Skarsgard. YUM. The sexy Swede graces the June 2011 cover of GQ magazine. With “True Blood” Season 4 premiering soon, expect a media blitz from all the show’s main stars in the coming weeks. In the issue, Alexander poses for a fashion spread and opens up about everything. From his famous father, to life in Los Angeles and to filming love scenes with Anna Paquin. The Eric Northman portrayer divulges everything. Photographer Carter Smith snapped the GQ pictorial.
On his famous father, actor Stellan Skarsgård:
“I don’t think I came to acting to compete with my father. But, you know, he wasn’t around as much as normal dads, and seeing his passion…Maybe it was a way to get his attention… I mean, if anything, we’re trying to take care of him. He’s over the hill.”
On LA versus his native country:
“You walk into the coffee shop, and the girl asks how your day is. When I first moved here, I loved that. I know it’s shallow and superficial and she doesn’t give a f*ck about my day, but I still like it,” he says. Sweden, by contrast, is more reserved. “It’s difficult to get to know a Swede. But once you do, you’re in,” he says. And there’s a stronger sense of boundaries. “You’re never going to see a television show The Skarsgårds.”
On life in L.A. and the entertainment industry:
“Hollywood can be like kids playing marbles on the schoolyard. Everybody wants the shiny marble until one kid says he doesn’t. Then nobody will touch it. So it’s important that I make good decisions now.”
Abercrombie & Fitch has been using sex to sell their merchandise for years. They’ve made pimping out hot boys with perfect physiques into an art form. The American company is hoping well-defined six packs translates to mo’ money in the land of berets and croissants. For the first time ever, Parisians can purchase their overpriced college gear on their home turf. A&F is opening their first store in France on the famed Champs-Élysées on May 19, 2011.
In true Abercrombie fashion, the company paraded a whack-load of topless muscled beefy hunks to promote the grand opening. 101 models strutted their hotness on the streets, balconies and even the store rooftop. It was sex, sex, sex everywhere. It was like a Bruce Weber picture book threw up all over the place. OMG or should I say OMD (Oh, mon Dieu). Check out the video of the well-executed promotion below.
What do you do when you’re at home, trying on an outfit and you’re not really sure if it’s a-OK for your evening, your date, or special event you are about to attend? In one scenario, you ask your friends who are over at your place also getting ready and they give you an honest opinion. Another, you pop into your sister (or brothers) room and you ask them to give you a quick look for approval. But what if you’re home alone or live alone… what do you do? Enter Go Try It On: an online community and now iPhone app.
So how does it work? The format is pretty similar for both platforms. You take a photo of yourself wearing your outfit (or outfits) you are deciding on for the evening. You select in the options where you are headed for the day or evening. You are then prompted to explain the outfit you are wearing by brand names etc. Sounds simple enough right? Once your picture is live, users of the app and site can go and vote on your outfit. They can choose for you to Wear It or Change It. So… I decided to try it myself to see if this online community really can help you decide on your outfit.
Cam Gigandet is all about contradictions as of late. For his upcoming movie, “Priest“, which opens this Friday May 13, he plays a vampire hunter. Just a few years ago, he played a vampire in the first installment of “Twilight”. The hunter now becomes the hunted. His latest flick, “Priest“, delves into very dark theory, yet he’s all sunshine and bright colors for his spread in GQ magazine. I love a man who flip flops *wink*.
This summer is all about color and it’s no more evident then in Gigandet’s fashion editorial for the latest issue of the men’s magazine. Photographer Cedric Buchet snapped the hottie, and former Man Crush of mine, on the technicolor streets of San Miguel. The city is known as Mexico’s artiest colonial town. I love the art direction of the shoot and glad color is back. So long dreary days of winter.
Although it’s pouring rain today where I am, I am comforted in knowing that summer is on the way. With hotter weather and clear blue skies comes afternoons at the beach, and of course new swimwear! Undergear.com some hot new designs to suite all preferences: briefs, squarecuts, trunks, boardshorts, and bikinis.
UnderGear has just released a behind the scenes look at their photo shoot with their new sexy 2011 cover model, Derek Richardson. With sun, sand, surf, and most importantly skin, Derek makes me want to…buy some new swimwear? Well, let’s just go with that. He’s 28 years old and from Afton, New York. In the video, he explains that he works out ever day (which of course you’d expect with a body like his). See the fruits of his labor in his glistening muscles in the video below. Richardson also divulges that he’s a boxer brief kinda guy, as briefs are too tight for him. Have a look below.
Starlets, models, divas, and legends all brought their fashion A-game to last night’s 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit in New York City. The night celebrated the unveiling of the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit at the museum. Sarah Burton, who designed Kate Middleton’s wedding dress was on hand to honor the work of the late designer and unveiled the exhibit. It was the biggest night of the fashion calender.
With all these ladies fighting it out for top fashion honors, you knew there were would be as many hits as there would be misses. Thankfully, they didn’t disappoint on either fronts. Check out a few of the ladies who looked stunning and those who stunned, and not for a good reason.
Leighton Meester: Louis Vuitton
Blake Lively: Chanel
Jessica Szohr: Topshop
Normally Blake doesn’t disappoint, but this was not good. It didn’t compliment her banging body. Jessica looked a little too clubby for a gala. Loved Leighton’s dress and shoes, but not together. As a whole, the Upper East Siders didn’t fare so well.
It must be so grueling to work at the MAXIM office during the days of deciding who is going to make this years, 2011 HOT 100. With so many gorgeous women in the field of Hollywood entertainment, how can you narrow it down to only 100? Is there eenie, meenie, minee moe? Drawing names from hats? Who pays more for the highest spot? Who knows. What I do know is that this year’s HOT 100 has some great choices and leaves me wondering where some famous female hotties are?
One noticeable name off of this year’s list is Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively. Where is she? She is so hot and talented to boot. Did you not see her in The Town MAXIM? She killed it. One interesting addition to this year’s list is recently married Kate Middleton. Glee got some love with both Naya Rivera and Lea Michele making the list, although I don’t really agree with Lea being #28 and Naya being way down at #43. But what can you do when there is simply just too much sexy to go around?
