Hottest Hollywood Bodies: Get beach body tips from the celebs

In Fitness, Starlets, Young Hollywood on May 19, 2009 at 3:15 am


And then God made Megan Fox. Maybe she was just born with God-given good looks and a fast metabolism, and yes-that is unfair. Megan has reportedly admitted to being a tad lazy with routine workouts and that she has a trainer come to her home three times a week.


Annalyne Cord was once rumored  the only gal on 90210’s cast that was a healthy weight who didn’t starve herself or smoke ciggies all day.


Ahh…40 never looked so good. Hugh Jackman has always been in great shape and gets in more serious about training before he starts filming intense, physical roles. In a recent Men’s Health article the Wolverine star admits he stepped it up for the popular action thriller.


In April Vanessa Hudgens graced the cover of Self  Magazine in a bright bikini and said that Pilates helped to keep her tummy flat, she sits in the front of her Spin class to get a competitive edge and she eats whatever she wants..in tiny portions.  Hudgens also likes to take hybrid fitness classes that mix Pilates and boxing.


Blake Lively has it all, including killer walking sticks. Blake tries to do an hour of yoga/Pilates/tai-chi. How does the Gossip Girl time find to relax? Maybe letting her hair down at the beach with boyfriend Penn Badgley while on vacation.


Blake has admitted to working out regularly and also reports to People Style Magazine that she snacks on Kopali Organics, for “snacks you don’t have to feel guilty about eating”.


Demi Moore-you are one lucky lady! Here’s Ashton Kutcher looking buff as he shoots a scene from “The Killers” with Katherine Heigel. He admitted on Twitter: “Time to get serious. I’m so paranoid about doing scenes with my shirt off.” Umm Ashton hon, you have nothing to worry about. He and wifey Demi reportedly do yoga together.


Kate Hudson, America’s sweetheart in the RomCom’s (that’s romantic comedies), has the sort of body we would pay good money to have. Mommy to son Ryder, Kate watches her figure by dining on sushi and eating organic whenever she can. She reportedly takes strip aerobics classes at Sheila Kelley’s S-Factor in Los Angeles and is always photographed riding her bike.


And then God made Gisele. She workouts kids and she yes, she does eat-she just eats well, takes care of herself and works out regularly. Easy. Tape this pic on your fridge and we promise the late night snacking will end.


Kim Kardashian is known for her physical assets and just released a DVD series that hopes to have you “Fit in your jeans by Friday!” (Seriously, that’s the name of her workout DVD) Her BF Reggie Bush also keeps her motivated with their joint workouts. Find out more about where to get Kim’s DVD Series here.


Rihanna has had a tough year but that hasn’t stopped her from looking fab in a two piece. But even RiRi has her insecurites, in her case it’s her legs. “I’m insecure about them. Everyone wants to have slim, perfectly-toned legs and I’m the same. I do weights but I don’t want my legs to bulk up so I do a lot of cardio. I’ve lost a lot of weight since I started working out and if I exercise every day for a week, I can drop several pounds. If I diet, I see even faster results.


Clearly constantly running from the pappers keeps your abs toned.


She may possibly be the biggest drama queen on Gossip Girl but there is nothing big about Leighton Meester. She works out with personal trainer Justin Falahi while in Los Angeles. Seventeen Magazine reported that the take their workouts out of the gym to a nearby park and incorporating circuit training instead of sets. Here is Leighton looking flawless at the beach in Malibu, look for her in an upcoming ad campaign for Reebok.


We caught Miley Cyrus frolicking on the beach in the Bahamas this past weekend and looks super cute in this black and pink bikini. You may remember the pictures of her and her boyfriend jogging, clearly her workouts are paying off!People Magazine reported this response on Twitter to the pics: “@NicoleRichie has one of the tiniest, most adorable bodies, and I guarantee even HER thighs jiggle. Everyones do!!!” Cyrus tweeted. “im not putting skinny girls down! i believe in exercise and treating your body like a temple :)”


Her movie Into The Blue 2 may have gone straight to DVD, but we think people will rent the movie just to see if Audrina Patridge looks as good in a bikini as Jessica Alba.

Celebfest at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

In Uncategorized on May 11, 2009 at 1:37 pm


Last year the annual “prom” of journalists and big time politicos brought the likes of Perez Hilton, Pam Anderson and Heidi Montag. This year Obamamania has turned the fundraising dinner into a celebrity-soaked, action packed weekend. Hollywood invaded DC this past weekend and celebgawking was there for all the fun for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Sadly, we had only had our blackberry camera, so please pardon the fuzzy images. The rest of these images are compliments of the talented photogs we share the red carpet with, thanks guys.


So many media outlets, so many cocktails, so little time….

White House Correspondents Association

Ashton twittered while looked just stunning Demi. Saturday was the first time we saw her in person so we are still a little bit in awe…we walked in behind them and they are flaw…..less.

The weekend-long fun began Friday night, with the Time/People Party at the St. Regis where Ludacris and Kevin Bacon were just a few people to stick their heads in the lavish cocktail party.  The Creative Coalition came back to screen Barry Levinson’s documentary Poliwood at the Naval Museum that included a Q & A and a chance to mingle at a cocktail reception with Dana Delaney, Rachel Leigh Cook, Tim Daly and Kerry Washington. The Impact Film Fund hosted a hush-hush party at L2 with a spotting of Luke Russert and Bradley Cooper. The next morning was Tammy Haddad’s for her annual brunch  that draws a hefty collection of media power players.


We didn’t meet First Lady  Michelle Obama Saturday night, but we did meet the talented man who designed her Inaugural gown, Jason Wu.


Jason Wu, as adorable as he was, couldn’t give us a straight answer on what celeb he’d like to dress next…


A very camera friendly Meghan McCain was very happy to pose for the paps.


Ashton Kutcher, looking very handsome in his suit, received a happy welcome by a throng of screaming teenagers in the lobby of the Washington Hilton. Here he is walking with Wolf Blitzer into the dinner.


The cute couple shares a private moment in a room filled with screaming photogs and screaming teenagers.


Elizabeth Banks turned heads inside the pre-dinner cocktail reception.


Demi & Tyra mingling with peeps in the Time/People/CNN reception.


The hottest girl from The Office, Rashida Jones, walked the red carpet with a big smile at the Washington Hilton.


The Old Adventures of New Christine star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, did not attempt to dance like Elaine.


Kyra Sedgwick with daughter Sosie Bacon and hubbby Kevin Bacon in the background.

On Saturday night the Washington Hilton opened it’s doors for the 3500 people who jam-packed the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.  A line of black SUVs snaked up and down Connecticut Avenue and unloaded some serious A-list royalty. A red carpet packed with photogs, paparazzi and hundreds of screaming fans  dying for Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore (who were in serious conversation with Wolf Blitzer as they headed in). Julia Louis-Dreyfus kept getting her long train stepped on and Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon brought daughter Sosie Bacon along for the night.


Amber Tamberlyn, in a shocking red Carolina Herrera Couture gown, claims her pretty hairstyle was held together by a bunch of bobby pins. When did bobby pins look so fab?


Here is a clear shot of Amberlyn’s gown when she hit the red carpet at the Washington Hilton earlier…

Glenn Close wore a white and black print dress and smiled, a lot. Felicity Huffman and her hubby William H. Macy looked thrilled as well. Amber Tamberlyn wore a shocking red Caroline Herrera Couture gown that was so beautiful it would make you cry. Johnathon Rhys Myers is even better looking in person, if you can believe that.


Natalie Portman, in a cut out Balenciaga gown, was a guest of Newsweek.


Gossip Girl cast members Chace Crawford and Matthew Settle. We know Matthew Settle was staying at the Washington Hilton and that his suit was a loaner.


Tom Cruise & Katie holmes were guests at the Vanity Fair table inside. Katie is earing some threads from her new fahsion line.
Party-goers went wild for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who were incredibly charming, posed for pictures  and gave autographs inside the Time/People/CNN Cocktail Reception. We saw Chace Crawford of Gossip Girl take some friendly photo-ops with a gaggle of women following his every move. We wondered if Natalie Portman was going to accidentally pop out of her intricate dress and we wondered what Eva Longoria and Gordon Ramsey were talking about in the corner with Ramsey’s wife. Trading recipes perhaps? We doubt it. Jason Bateman got trapped in a throng of fans as he tried to make his way from the National Journal reception. We really wanted to ask Amy Poehler if her new baby looked more like her or hubby Will Arnett.


Jason Bateman was gracious as dozens of people followed him from spot to the next.


Jason Binn’s Fourth Annual Capitol File After Party was 600 people deep inside the Corcoran Musuem of Art.

Afterwards if you weren’t one of the chosen few to make into the totally inaccessible Bloomberg/Vanity Fair Party  the second best party to gain entry was the Fourth Annual Capitol File After Party hosted by CEO Jason Binn of Niche Media at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Eva Longoria swept by looking tiny and perfect hugging designer Jason Wu, like a long-lost pal. Christian Slater was one of the first celebs to arrive and one of the last to leave. White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel makes TMZ in this video clip.


Eva Longoria swept by the press line in a gown by Ports 1962 by Tia Cibini gown, but still posed for a few photogs before being swept upstairs at the Capitol File After Party at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.


Here’s a better shot of Eva with her pal, fashion designer Jason Wu, who really liked Michell Obama’s Michael Kors dress and necklace.


Chris Tucker is even funnier in real life! Forest and Keisha Whitaker mingled with guests and took pictures with party-goers. Top Chef’s, Padma Lakshimi, walked around looking stunning in a purple gown and Ludacris brought his mom for a pre-Mother’s Day celebration. We really like Meghan McCain, who was barefoot by the end of the night due to sore feet from high, strappey heels. American Idol judge, Karla DioGuardi was ten times nicer than Simon Cowell and Wanda Sykes showed up late, made the rounds in VIP and walked out the front door at 1:27am.  New dress for celebgawking: $100, gift bag at the Fourth Annual Capitol File After Party: $350, memories of celebgawking’s first White House Correspondents’ Weekend: priceless.

is our favorite Top Chef.Lakshimi Padma


A collection of Niche Media’s great glossies…..


A very unglamorous a red carpet  at the end of a long night….

Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

In Uncategorized on May 5, 2009 at 2:47 am


The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion was the theme of the Costume Institute Gala at the MET this year. The model mania began with Kate Moss, a co-host to year,  who arrived on the arm of Marc Jacobs. As one of the most glamourous and highly anticipated fashion events of the year, this is a red carpet is harder to navigate than Anna Wintour’s blackberry. This year Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Kate Bosworth, Madonna and Victoria Beckham were just a handful of hopefuls to get entry into the super glam party that kicks off the Costume Institute’s Goddess exhibit. . So who got the worst and best dressed awards last night? See for yourelf. Here’s a few looks that caught our eye for your viewing pleasure.


Justin Timberlake wore a William Rast suit (ahem and some glasses ?) while his gal Jessica Biel wore red Versace.

In The Devila Wears Prada it was  Meryl Streep, but in real life it’s Anna Wintour. Here she is in the flesh wearing Chanel Couture.


A little disappointed in this ensemble on Karolina Kurkova wearing a dress by Richard Chai. If anyone has a body to flaunt a unique and interesting dress it’s this gal.

victoriabeckham Victoria Beckham, a vision of heavy tanning and in polka dots by Louis Vuitton.



It’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s girl, Bar Refaeli in Marchesa. We love Marchesa. We like this dress. We like it alot. evamendes

Breathtaking. Stunning. Gorgeous. The always pretty Eva Mendes in Calvin Klein, with Francisco Costa.


Our favorite newlyweds Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen looking utterly gorgeous in Versace in our favorite color…blue!

madonna Bizarre, weird, random. Call it what you will, we have to give Madonna points for originality wearing this interesting choice by Louis Vuitton.


Really Kate, when are you going to do another movie? Kate Bosworth playing it safe  in Stella McCartney.


Elizabeth Hurley looked like a true member of royalty in Elie Saab Couture.

 Anne Hathaway attends "The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion" Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 4, 2009 in New York City.

It’s a Stella McCartney ad dying to happen: Kate Hudson, Stella McCartney, Liv Tyler, Kate Bosworth weairing who else? Stella McCartney.


Diane Kruger looking prim and proper in Chanel.


Ashley Olsen draped in Christian Lacroix.


Her sis, Mary Kate Olsen, wore a very different dress by the same designer.
