STYLE STALKER
Up, up, and away!

One of the looks that never seems to go out of style in the bun. It's a look that calls to mind the French Riviera. It's Audrey Hepburn-ish. Here we trace a few purveyors of the looks and offer a few tips on how to achieve the up-do look, as easy as a trip to your local Sephora.

The Kardashians are known to hit the red carpet with their luxurious raven manes piled up in high buns. It's a look that turns killer with a black pantsuit and high heels. When you have straight glossy hair like theirs, styling is an ease. If you don't naturally, mimic the results by using Mane and Tale Shampoo. It retails for only about $5 at your local drug store and gives you healthy, silky hair.Another great shampoo, slightly more expensive on the purse-strings is Redken All Soft, which many of the famous and beautiful, swear by.

Mila Kunis Named Sexiest Woman Alive

Mila Kunis may be off the market but she was still named Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.”

Certainly aided by her hot lady love scene with Natalie Portman in Black Swan, on-camera chemistry with Justin Timberlake, coupled with “that girl” personality in Friends With Benefits, and understanding GF attitude a la Ted, Kunis has no-doubt held many-a-men’s attention, even dream-girl appeal for quite sometime now.

Currently linked to former That ‘70s Show co-star, Ashton Kutcher, Kunis humbly acknowledges her new hot title by simply saying, “What I do and who I am are two different things. And, they will always be.”

THE BAND AID
Will the girls go at it again?

The Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame's 25th Anniversary Concert, (October 2009) started this mess. For it was this weekend, at a breathlessly packed Madison Square Garden, that two disparate rock sensations, Lou Reed and Metallica high fived over an unprovoked collaboration album. While the music world covered the news with undisputed anticipation, and quite understandable curiosity ("What could the world’s hugest metal band and the co-founder of the avant-rock deities the Velvet Underground possibly have in common," said Ben Sisario of The New York Times on October 27, 2011) the fan base was dubious from the start. In either case, Lulu came and saw, but far from conquered.

Adrian Grenier

This piece of Entourage perfection chose a classic tri-level brownstone in Brooklyn, to call home. You can find this charming arched brownstone, and him, in the cute neighborhood of Clinton Hill, where Grenier has set up a (relatively) self-sustainable rooftop garden over his guest retreat. Lucky for us, he’s planning to stay a while and work on his new eco-advocate website SHFT.com.

John Galliano Found Guilty of Bigotry

Sticks, stones, words, drunken honesty...it doesn't matter. You spew out hate, expect karma to bite you in the ass.

Iconic fashion designer John Galliano, 50, has been found guilty of the anti-Semitic comments to a couple he made back in February at La Perle bar in the Marais District in Paris.

The court ordered Galliano to pay 6,000 euros ( or $8,500) today in Parisian court. He was also ordered to pay a symbolic (?) one euro to one of the plaintiffs. However, the 6,000 euro fine has been suspended due to his constant apologies for his behavior, in the condition that he stay out of trouble in France for five years.

Natalie Portman's a Baby Mama!

It's a boy!

People magazine reports that Natalie Portman and her Black Swan choreographer/co-star turned fiancé Benjamin Millepied finally got to meet their long-awaited bundle of joy yesterday, 06/14/11. The star had just recently turned 30 on Thursday, making the arrival of her son to be the best...birthday present...EVER.

The Israeli-born actress (raised in New York) previously confessed to following Jewish superstition and has not prepared ANY baby stuff, believing it to be bad luck to do so if the baby is not born yet. Another scary thought on every gossip aficionado's minds, however, is the supposed 'Best Actress' curse where previous winners of the award experienced a downfall in their relationships (e.g. Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, etc...just to name a few).

Natalie Portman Drops Vegan Diet

That's her baby's fault!

Natalie Portman decided to drop veganism because her pregnancy cravings left her wanting eggs and dairy.

She explains, "I actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff. I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy and that sort of stuff.”

“I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful, watch your iron levels and your B12 levels and supplement those if there are things you might be low in in your diet.”

Natalie Portman Accused of Being A Fake

Wait a minute... Natalie Portman is not one of the best ballerinas in the world? And a body double covered some complicated dance sequences in Black Swan? Wow, that's big news for a Monday morning.

A few days ago Portman's fiancé, choreographer Benjamin Millepied told the Los Angeles Times that "85 percent of that movie is Natalie.” But some disagree...

Sarah Lane, the American Ballet Theatre soloist who perfected many of the movie's complicated dance sequences, said “Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent are Natalie. All the other shots are me. I’ve been doing this for 22 years... Can you become a concert pianist in a year and a half, even if you’re a movie star?”

Natalie Portman Disgusted By Galliano's Rant

Sunday's Academy Awards winner Natalie Portman is shocked and doesn't want to be associated in any way with John Galliano after she heard about the anti-Semitic comments he made and after seeing the videotape that surfaced yesterday. Just for the record, Portman is the new face of Miss Dior Cherie...

"I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video" Portman, 29, said in a statement from Los Angeles. "In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful."

After these comments, we can only but wonder if it will affect her contract with Dior...
