Megan Fox Goes 40's Glam for Armani Ad

Sylvs Nov 13, 2011


Actress Megan Fox is more often seen as sexy than sultry and more grunge than glam, but the truth is that she is all of the above.

Yes, she has a smokin' hot body, sensational facial features, and some serious ink - but that doesn't mean that she cannot channel the likes of Elizabeth Taylor or Gretta Garbo!

You may remember that Fox was previously in some very sexy and racy ads for Armani jeans. (If you dont then check out "The Tip")

Now scope out Megan's new ad for Armani makeup and foundation:

Fox definitely knows how to turn on the va-va-voom!

Do you hear that?
I think vintage Hollywood is applauding.

What do you think about Megan's new ad for Armani?



Jet Setting with the Jolie-Pitt Clan

Sylvs Nov 13, 2011

How long a celebrity marriage will last? No.
How successful someone's career will be? Nope.
Will they go Platinum? Answer Unclear. Try Again.

Only one thing is for sure in Celebrityland,
and that is that the Jolie-Pitt clan is the most globe trekking, puddle jumping, and country trotting family there is.

How awesome would it be to get to spend a day as a Jolie-Pitt like Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Knox, or Vivienne

Boat rides in Italy. Premieres in New York. School in France, Hungary, and New Orleans.
It's just another day in the life of one of Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt's kids!

Let's look at some Jet Setting photos of the Jolie-Pitt family:

Celebrity of the Week: Jennifer Lopez

Sylvs Nov 07, 2011

Singer, actress, dancer, designer, mother, and American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez has had a lot on her plate this year.

Not only the looming divorce from Marc Anthony, but juggling photo shoots, a television show, twins, the launch of a clothing line with Kohls, promotions, and fragrance launches is most definitely keeping J.Lo on her toes.

I have a feeling that she secretly wrote the script for I Don't Know How She Does It.

Though all the while, Jennifer knows how to stay cool, calm, and collected - oh and completely and utterly fashionable of course!

Lopez is and always has been a take charge woman with the ambition and drive to succeed at any project she touches and never loses her connection to "tha block".
Did I also mention the heart of gold?

All of this is what makes Jennifer Lopez Celebrity of the Week!

Shall we have a look at some of her 2011 style? I say yes:

Do you think Jennifer Lopez deserves the title of
Celebrity of the Week


Lindsay Lohan Serves Under 5 Hours of Her 30 Day Sentence

Sylvs Nov 07, 2011

Actress Lindsay Lohan has overcrowding to thank, again, for having to serve only just under 5 hours of her 30 day jail sentence this morning.

E! Online
is reporting that Lindsay check in to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynnwood, CA a just before 9 p.m last night and was released around 1:00am. 

She does have to keep herself in line however according to the judge's ruling of community service, probation, and therapy sessions. 

Think she got off easy?

Back in 2007, Lindsay was sentenced to only one day for misdemeanor cocaine use and DUI, and served just 84 minutes!

That judge must have totally hated Regina George too.

Let's take a look at some other celebs who caught a huge break on their jail sentences:

Lindsay's on again-off again pal Paris Hilton served just 5 days of her 45-day sentence for violating probation of a previous DUI. Even after public outrage for her to be "made an example of", she served a grand total of 23 days.


In 2005, actress Michelle Rodriguez was booked on DUI charges and sentenced to 60 days in jail, of which she served less than one day!
Even after later violating her probation, she served 18 days of a 180 day sentence.


Last but not least we have Nicole Richie's 2007 stint of 82 minutes served on a four day DUI sentence.


Do you think it is unfair for celebrities to get easy time?
Do you believe it is due to actual overcrowding or fame?

Supermodels Rock Harper's Bazaar U.K. as Duran Duran

Sylvs Nov 03, 2011

Supermodels Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Cindy Crawford, Yasmin Lebon, and Eva Herzigova - known collectively as "The Supers" - came together for one fierce photoshoot for Harper's Bazaar U.K..

They're taking on Duran Duran!

Harper's Bazaar came up with one fantastic fashion and music collaboration: an "exclusive film and magazine project" in association with Swarovski Elements where The Supers play the Duran Duran boys for the music video Girl Panic!.

Check out some of the exclusive photos below:

Naomi Campbell as Simon Le Bon


Cindy Crawford as John Taylor


Eva Herzigova as Nick Rhodes


Helena Christensen as Roger Taylor


Yasmin Le Bon as "the guitarist"


And what does Simon Le Bon think?
“We have made some pretty ambitious videos over the years, but this one was certainly the most challenging to date. Coordinating the schedules of five of the world’s biggest super models, Jonas, and the band was no easy task -- but we couldn’t be happier with the finished film.  It has all of the ingredients that we feel are important -- it’s humorous, glamorous, sexy and very Duran Duran.”

The 22-page feature, shot by Jonas Akerlund, will appear in the December issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K. and hit stands today.

What do you think of the photos?
How epic do you think the video will be?
