Pre-Grammy Parties this Weekend in Hollywood

In Film, Music, Red Carpets, Starlets, Young Hollywood on January 31, 2010 at 2:59 pm

The party never stops at Celebgawking during awards season and this weekend was no different. The music world was partying all over Hollywood and we caught everyone from Rihanna to Katy Perry getting some pre-glitz glamour going before Sunday night’s 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.

Singer Ke$sha performs Clive Owen’s pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton.

We went ga-ga for some of the super gorgeous with lots of classy LBD’s to bedazzled sequined and sparkles. We hope that we see more color at tonight’s Grammy’s where we’ll be blogging all the looks as they arrive at 6pm.

Was it really only a year ago that Rihanna didn’t make the Grammy Awards after her incident with Chris Brown? Looks like RiRi made is back pictured here at Clive Davis‘ annual Pre-Grammy Awards ‘A Salute To Icons’ party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Rihanna gets points for originality in this Viktor & Rolf cocktail dress.

Katy Perry shines at the Friends and Family Grammy party at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Love the dress but not so sure about that feathered vest.

Christina Aguilera kicked off the weekend Friday night with her hubby Jason Bratman at Wonderland nightclub in Hollywood.

Taylor Swift loves her sequins and sparkles. We wonder if she’ll dazzle John Mayer at the Grammy’s with the rumors of the two spending some QT time together. More than just friends? We’ll see…

It’s our favorite parental units. Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey leave the kiddies at home and step out for the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute honoring Neil Young on Friday.

Clearly those rumors about Jennifer Hudson being preggars are untrue. J Hud looked fab in a purple leather dress and grey platform pumps at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party.

Jamie Foxx threw an A-list soiree at L’Ermitage Beverly Hills and guests included a long list of his famous friends like Ashton & Demi, Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake and Paris Hilton.  

Fergie went with short and sparkly at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party. Not loving the shoes Fergie but who was looking at your feet?

Jake Gyllenhaal may be single but looks like he could ready to mingle at Jamie Foxx’s pre-Grammy party Saturday Night.

The Queen of R & B Mary J went with a long sequined gown to Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party.

Stay tuned tonight when we blog about tonight’s red carpet at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards in Hollywood. Follow us on Twitter @celebgawking.com

In fashion, Red Carpets, Starlets, Young Hollywood on January 9, 2010 at 2:53 am

Awards Season has officially begun…..

Things started off with a bang Wednesday night with The People’s Choice Awards. Unfortunately Celebgawking wasn’t there but we had plenty of live blogging and red carpet photo ops to keep us informed about who was hot and who was not. We have a quick look at some of the looks we loved the most.

Carrie Underwood had a unique dress from new designer Christian Cota but we were much more interested in that engagement ring from fiancé Mike Fisher.

We all heard about Taylor Swift and her standing ovation for her ex-Taylor Lautner.  We loved the Jenny Packham dress and Louboutin heels.

It’s our favorite gal from Glee! Lea Michele wore a Nuj Novakhett dress and House of Lavande 1970’s earrings.

Jessica Alba is one hot mama. She radiates wearing a short mini dress by Antonia Berardi and Burberry platforms.

Mariah Carey having a massive wardrobe malfunction with a skin-tight Ysa Makino gown. Fortunately her hubby Nick Cannon was there to help her waddle on stage.

Sandra Bullock, look at you in those hot, sky-high Brian Atwood pumps. The Blindside Actress looked glamorous in a Vivienne Westwood dress.

Herve Leger never looked so good. Diane Kruger we need your workout tips!

Celebrity Trainer Secrets

In Fitness, Starlets on January 4, 2010 at 1:56 am

It’s January and once again you have a laundry list of resolutions.  Is reaching your physical best a goal for 2010? You may think A-listers look fab and fit by spending hours on the treadmill. But you can get the same star-quality body without logging hours at the gym or spending big bucks. Get the fitness secrets of stars with some motivating advice from their personal trainers.

What do Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Courtney Cox and Kate Hudson all have in common? Amazing bodies.  However, these A-list ladies also turn to the same woman for help keeping their svelte figures.

Celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson shapes bodies by creating small yet lean muscles. Anderson’s customized regimens allow any woman to attain the body of their dreams with unique moves and high repetitions. No time for the gym? Feeling lazy? No worries. Anderson’s method also includes a simple routine that you can follow at home with a towel. You can learn how to do her “Under Arm Flab Fighter” move below.

Don’t live in NYC or LA to get to one of Tracy Anderson’s studios? Try some of  her methods yourself with Tracy’s online webisodes.  Dance addicts can check out Anderson’s Perfect Design Series-Sequence I and Dance Cardio 2 at andersonmethod.com.

The Hills star Audrina Patridge is known for her enviable abs and super-toned limbs. What’s her secret? A new workout called Reebok’s Jukari Fit-to-Fly.

The inspiration behind this tough workout evolved from Cirque du Soleil trapeze artists and involves hanging from a trapeze contraption from the ceiling. You’ll engage your core muscles while working on both balance and strength. Now, you may not live in a city that currently offers Jukari just yet. However you can try to  mimic some of the moves like the Woodpecker, in your own gym.

When New Moon star Ashley Greene needed to prepare for some intensely physical scenes, she knew her Pilates regimen wasn’t going to be enough. Her personal trainer put her though a series of tough workouts but also tried to find activities she enjoyed to keep her moving while also having fun. Greene says she tried everything from kayaking and hiking to yoga and martial arts. MMA or Mixed Martial Arts was also a big part of her training an you can get a similar technique at home with some of their DVD’s.

How does Vanessa Hudgens get this body?

Love Pilates? Enjoy the challenge of boxing? Piloxing is a creative workout in LA and everyone from Hilary Duff to Vanessa Hudgens . Ashely Tisdale also takes advantage of Piloxing’s stress-busting routine. Piloxing creator Viveca Jensen has been turning  bodies sleek and sexy with her inventive fusion of Pilates and Boxing that enables you to feel powerful and strong. Take advantage with her DVD and try Piloxing at home.

In some other countries, Jessica Alba would be a freak of nature with her picture perfect looks and her ability to keep her incredible figure in tip top shape. Even after the birth of her daughter Honor, she whipped herself back into shape under the strict supervision of her trainer, Ramona Braganza. How did she do it?

Braganza told People magazine that after the birth of her baby “She worked out an hour a day, five or six days a week, and stayed on a strict diet of about 1700 calories a day, losing 600 calories because of exercise.” Braganza is also responsible for getting Halle Berry and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz back into post-baby shape.

Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio is known for her amazing assets and her body defies gravity with a little help from Brazilian trainer Leandro Carvalho. Carvallo’s new DVD Brazil Butt Lift takes all the same moves he created for Alessandra. This DVD is an amazing regimen of cardio-sculpting moves taken from martial arts and ballet which help you get your butt firm and tight. Carvalho also has some tips on preventing bloat and keeping yourself healthy. His magic potion? Homemade Ginger tea. Just slice half a ginger root and boil. Cavralho suggests drinking two a day as ginger is a natural antibiotic.

In Celeb holiday, fashion, Young Hollywood on January 2, 2010 at 3:00 pm

Christina Aguilera & Nicole Richie at Tao in Las Vegas

Hello 2010!

Rihanna performing at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi

Hot concerts to private parties, Celebs were spotted everywhere this New Year’s Eve from the sunshine state to the Caribbean islands.  Saying goodbye to 2009 took place all around the world and we found  hard bodies hitting the beach and couples canoodling. While some starlets rang in the New Year at a swank soiree, others celebrated in their swimsuits.  Here’s a few of our favorite stars as they ring in 2010.

First up…a dazzling Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas sings her heart out at LAX Nightclub in Las Vegas. She still found time to steal a kiss or two with hubby Josh Duhamel.

An always pretty Kim Kardashian hit the grand opening of Eve nightclub at the new Citycenter in Las Vegas.

A svelte Lindsay Lohan sporting some of her spray-tan perfected bod in St. Bart’s and playing up her style icon status. Here she is in a pic she tweeted from the exclusive island where she is reportedly partying with her little sis Ali Lohan.

Welcome back Jennifer Lopez! The ever-sparkling J.Lo performed in Times Square where the temps in NYC dipped into the teens. But the colder air didn’t keep this hot mama from stripping down.

Here’s her body-hugging one piece from the front….

And a more revealing view from the back. We wonder what her hubby Marc Anthony thought.

We have been missing Lauren Conrad since her departure from The Hills (let’s face it-the show hasn’t been the same since LC left!). Lauren managed to make an appearance with Stephanie Pratt and Lauren “Lo” Bosworth at the 2nd annual NYE party at Beso in Los Angeles.

AnnaLynne McCord and New Moon star Kellan Lutz have been denying their supposed hook ups but they got caught canoodling in South Beach, where they were both spotted for NYE.

Hey ladies, we didn’t want to leave you without a pic of a shirtless Kellan, who partied at The Shore Club and hosted a party at new club Klutch.

Our favorite cute couple! Singer Katy Perry and boyfriend Russell Brand headed to  Jaipur, India for New Year’s Eve. Yeah, we were scratching our heads too.

Christina Aguilera and her hubby host a NYE bash at Tao nightclub in Las Vegas.
