Ahhhh, another year has gone by and 2009 is coming to a close.  This was a year of fabulous couture and showstopper red carpets, big and small. With an inaugural year under our belts, Celebgawking is proud to say that we’ve watched our favorite celebutantes & stylistas for a year now. Keep a look out for 2010 and the beginning of Awards Show season when we take a trip down the red carpet all over again.

Who is your favorite femme fatale? Here ar a few of our top picks in some of their very best moments this year.

Freida Pinto not only shot to super stardom with Slumdog Millionaire success but she also became a fashion darling in 2009.  Setting new trends at film premieres, award shows and front row on the runway, Freida gave new meaning to “It” gal of the year.  Here she is at the Chanel Autumn/Winter show at Grand Palais during Paris Fashion Week wearing Chanel of course.

At the Bafta/LA Britania Awards in Valentino.

Last but not least, Freida in a pale blue Marchesa gown.

Gisele Bunchden with hubby Tom Brady in NYC for the MET Costume Gala: Model & the Muse.

Lauren Conrad at her “L.A. Candy’ book launch party in 3.1 Phillip Lim

And she didn’t disappoint at the 6th Annual Style Awards wearing a Mara Hoffman Spring 2010 dress

Kate Winslet at the 2009 Oscars  in YSL and as usual, Kate always looks gorgeous.

Reese Witherspoon in a fab frock by Rodarte at the Monsters vs. Aliens “Blue Carpet’

Only Eva Longoria could pull of this skin-tight gown by Reem Acra

Kristen Stewart pulled out all the stops for the LA premier of New Moon. The Oscar De La Renta gown was out of the ordinary for Stewart, who normally prefers shorter hemlines and converse to couture and Jimmy Choo.

Megan Fox may have received the worst acting award for her performance in this summer’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen but we loved this purple number by Donna Karan.

Taylor Swift not only swept the CMA’s this year but was a vision in sequined gown by Kaufman Franco.

Blake Lively had so many amazing looks this year but this was one of our favs in red Versace at this year’s Emmy Awards in LA.

Taylor Swift had an incredible year and celebrated more than one red carpet in sequins and sparkles.

We wanted to applaud Miley Cyrus for stepping out of the box with this incredible Dsquared2 gown on the red carpet at the 2009 VH1 Diva Show in NYC.

With so many Kardashians, it’s hard to pick just one gal. But Kourtney rocked this dress while preggars…

Heidi Klum at the 81st Academy Awards Show

90210’s Jessica Stroup in BCBG Max Azaria

Sophia Bush and Kim Kardashian are ebony &  ivory lovely.

People to Watch in 2010

In Film, Young Hollywood on December 30, 2009 at 5:56 pm

The Eye Candy Cast from The Vampire Diaries

With a whole new crop of talent oozing out of your tv and on the big screen, celebgawking had a slew of  favorite “ones to watch” this year. Here’s a list of the people who caught our eye and who we’re hoping to see more of  in 2010.

Long before her role as Bella’s best friend Jessica on Twilight, Anna Kendrick was making waves on  the stage and screen. She is the second youngest person nominated for a Tony Award (for her role in High Society) and has recently received 8 nominations for best supporting actress for her role in alongside George Clooney in Up in the Air.

Reprising the Role of Captain James Kirk in the JJ Abram’s remake of Star Trek is no easy feat. But Chris Pines took our breath away.

Pine’s is rumored to be the next Jack Ryan in a Tom Clancy novel turned movie.

Everything vampires was pretty much a hit this year and The Vampire Diaries is no different. Tongues went a waggin’ for the handsome and brooding vampire, Stefan Salvatore, played by Paul Wesley.

She plays cooler-than-thou teenager  on Showtime’s  Californication. We love Madeleine Martin, who plays Hank Moody’s quirky and inquisitive daughter.

True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard is rightly so, the baddest vampire in the town of Bon Temps. The Swedish actor has some movies slated for release and we are hoping he gets an even bigger role in the True Blood series.

The cast of Glee took us by surprise with their campy songs and fun little dance routines. The one-hour musical comedy is a nice departure from American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance.

When you get to star opposite Johnny Depp and work under Tim Burton, you’re definitely on the right track. Mia Wasikowska will play Alice in the 3D remake of Alice in Wonderland and we can’t wait to see where the rabbit hole will take her.

It’s a Celebgawking Christmas

In Celeb Family, Celeb holiday, Celeb Travel, Starlets on December 30, 2009 at 4:00 am

Kardashian Christmas anyone?

Umm-how did Ryan Seacrest end up in the Kardashian family Christmas photo?

Celebs may have spent their holidays  far from the Hollywood Hills, but not far enough from the cameras. We found them around the globe,  frolicking on beaches  while juggling quality time with the little ones. We saw exes hooking back up in time fora little mischief under the mistletoe, some big family fun and lots of little ones on the hips of some hot mamas. From the slopes of Aspen to the beaches in Mexico, here’s a look at Celebgawkings favorite celeb- spottings this week.

Here are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie leaving the set of Salt this week in NYC, which is where the Brangelina brood also spent their holiday.

Rihanna headed home to Barbados for some QT time with her family. Here she is with her brother on Saturday, Dec. 26. Rihanna heads to Abu Dhabi next for a concert on New Year’s Eve.

Kate Hudson may be recently single but she will always have this number one fan. Here she is with son Ryder in Aspen, Colorado on December 21st.

Miley Cyrus spent her holiday overseas in London where she will be performing. She also spent lots of time with her family and invited some friends to keep her company.

Leonardo DiCaprio and his ex, Bar Rafaeli, cozy up in Mexico last week. Have the two reunited for good this time?

Who is this other woman with Robert Pattinson? It’s his sister Lizzy. Here’s Pattinson enjoying the holidays with family in London.

Our favorite gal from The Hills, Audrina Patridge hosted a holiday party at The Den in Hollywood. Here she is with her sister and was trailed by a film crew…hmm. Is it The Hills Holiday Special they were taping? Audrina is rumored to be returning to The Hills for a sixth season with a six figure, per episode salary. Guess Lauren Conrad’s blonde replacement isn’t hitting the high ratings numbers that MTV was expecting.

Heidi Klum and Seal had their entire family on the slopes this year in Aspen, Colorado. Their children Leni, Johan and Henry all received skiing lessons while their two-month old daughter Lou Sulola napped with daddy.

Jennifer Lopez and hubby/armcandy Marc Anthony trudged their twins to Disneyland.

LeAnn Rimes and boyfriend Eddie Cibrian also hit the slopes in Aspen, Colorado. Snowboarding was on the agenda on December 28th.

LeAnn’s divorce from Dean Sheremet will soon be final. Dean is asking for spousal support and for LeAnn to pay attorney fees. We guess when you cheat you have to pay the parting tab.

We know what Denise Richards wasn’t doing this Christmas…fighting with ex Charlie Sheen. Here’s the E! reality start with one of her adorable daughters.

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens sneak in a screening of Avatar 3D at Universal CityWalk in Universal City, California on Monday night.

After a whirlwind publicity tour for her new movie Nine, Nicole Kidman is seen here with daughter Sunday Rose and husband Keith Urban in Milsons Point, Australia on December 27.

Hey look, it’s Jeremy Piven-without his Entourage, vacationing in Honolulu, Hawaii for the holidays.

But it looks like he doesn’t need a big audience to be the center of attention….

Jude Law and Sienna Miller were spotted reuniting in Barbados for the holidays. Have these two lovebirds found a truce to kiss and make up?

Mariah Carey bundles up in Aspen as she takes her pooch out for an evening stroll.

Newlywed Khloe Kardashian sans Lamar but with her Quick Trim co-hort and big sis Kim.

Make Ups and Break Ups of 2009

In Starlets, Young Hollywood on December 16, 2009 at 3:41 am

It’s been a turbulent year of love. Hearts have been broken and mended in record time and  we rounded up a list of notable make ups and break ups this year. We begin with Rihanna and her now ex-Chris Brown and their break up last February. Here they are in happier times performing together at the Jingle Ball.

Rihanna graces the cover of January’s GQ Magazine. Clearly Rihanna’s broken heart has mended and ringing in a new year in 2010 is just what this gal deserves.

She’s America’s sweetheart and he’s the musician with a penchant for funny youtube videos. We were rooting for Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer when they arrived at the 2009 Oscars hand in hand. A string of break ups later and now John Mayer just announced on Ellen Degeneres that dating in general right now has got him a little freaked out. Maybe he’s just not that into yoou Jen!

Lightening strikes again for Kate Hudson. The blonde beauty may have helped the Yankees win the World Series with her lucky charms but now that her romance with A-Rod is kaput, who will help the team now? Minka Kelly, calling Minka Kelly.

We didn’t think that the boy wonder of golf could do wrong, but clearly something was amiss when Tiger wood’s Cadillac Escalade careened into a tree in the wee hours. When Tiger failed to show his face to the media circus that quickly turned into what TMZ coined as TNN, America began to scratch their heads. People also began to lose count of all the women surfacing who were claiming they had been intimate with the Tiger. Now that Tiger has decided to take a break from golfing and what seems like a normal life amongst humans, we wonder what he will do next.

We think it’s time to go on Oprah or Dianne Sawyer and tell your side of the story Tiger, before any more of those juicy endorsements drop by the wayside.

Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush took a break after juggling a long distance relationship, but the reality star and her New Orleans Saints star are back together after realizing two is better than one.

Are they or aren’t they? Together that is…rumors have been swirling about Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal breaking up. When reports broke on People.com, their handlers quickly denied the break up rumors.  New rumors recently surfaced that Jake wants to marry but Reese is a little gun shy about pulling that trigger again.

The private couple before the drama of their alleged break up.

Eddie Cibriani and LeAnn Rimes met on the set of a Lifetime movie and broke up their marriages to be with one another. Once a cheater always a cheater? Hmmm….

We loved Jon and Kate together, but we also know that all good things have to come to an end. This TLC-couple and their messy break up which ended in divorce this year became a nasty reality for both. And of course we all know who didn’t benefit from a John Hardy makeover.

Jon Gosselin in the midst of a severe mid-life crisis.

We thought that after five long years of emotional and verbal abuse, Audrina Patridge would finally get rid of Justin Bobbby once and for all. Especially after his nasty behavior on The Hill’s this season when he walked all over Audrina for Kristen Cavalleri. We love you Audrina, but will you ever learn?

Oh Justin Bobby, how we will miss you and your hats, your Members Only Jackets and your ability to sometimes look like a homeless person.

Levi Johnston was just a kid that impregnated an Alaskan teen with a very  famous mom. Now that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston our history he can move on to more important things like posing for Playgirl.

Survive the Winter in Style

In fashion, Starlets, Young Hollywood on December 7, 2009 at 3:11 am


Rihanna rocking a leather jacket by Gucci


 The weather outside may be a tad frightening but that doesn’t mean dressing up or  down should become a chore.  Take one look at Rihanna and you’ll agree, there are so many ways to pull off  cool warm weather looks. Celebs always prepare for colder months on either coast by layering and pairing up the best in boots and chunky sweaters that still flatter the figure. Follow the Celebgawking wish list for winter wearable trends that anyone can try themselves.   

 Kristen Stewart on the red carpet for the New Moon première in Spain looking trench-coat friendly.  A perfect way to stay warm when you’re wearing something more cocktail-appropriate underneath.   

 Say goodbye to the tomboy and say hello to Balenciaga!   

 Lauren Conrad may no longer be our number one on The Hills, but she’ll always be on top of our list of red carpet wonders. Here she pares a simple, long-sleeved baby doll dress with gladiator open-toe heels.   

 The queen of country, Taylor Swift, wore this gorgeous gown by Reem Acra on the CMA`s red carpet.   


Greeting fans, Taylor Swift also knows how to stay warm while dressing down and polishes her comfy look with a bright cap.   


Our favorite look is a pair of black leggings and knee-high boots. Nicole Kidman pulls off this look flawlessly and adds a pop of color with a red Prada bag.   


We adore the way Jennifer Aniston always looks pulled together, with or without arm candy. Her thrown together look here includes a leather Burberry jacket and bag by Ferragamo along with a great pair of aviator shades. This is how you layer the right way.   


Jessica Alba has the uncanny ability to look anything but frumpy, even while Christmas tree shopping this past Saturday. Slouchy boots pair nicely with her ripped jeans and chunky sweater ensemble.   

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Leighton Meester attends the Jingle  Ball concert  in LA on Saturday (where she later performed). Leighton looking stunning on the red carpet wearing a dress by Cushnie et Ochs.   


And of course where there is one Gossip Girl means another is not far away. Blake Lively is pretty as a picture here in Celine. Who doesn’t love an oversized bag for every day?   


Kate Beckinsale looks super chic in NYC wearing latex leggings and a cute knit cap on top of her long locks, proving you can be fashionable and warm at the same time.   


Gossip Girl #3! Jessica Stroup  at Variety’s 3rd annual “Power of Youth” event at Paramount Studios looks pretty as a picture in casual jeans and boots with a western-style shirt. Too casual for the red carpet? Perhaps…   

New Moon’s Kristen Reed rocks sequins on the red carpet and pairs it with a tuxedo-style jacket.   

Heather Graham does right by a pair of patterned tights and a vertically striped sweater dress.   


 And because Taylor Swift is having such a great year, we thought we’d close with one more!
