New Year's Celebrity Outfits

Nicole Richie and Britney Spears showed off their legs in sparkle minis at past New Year's Eve parties.

Richie went the safe route though and went with some leggings. Good thing too. After a few drinks you don't want a slip up with the paparazzi. Right, Britney?

What will the celebrity mom's be wearing to ring in 2011 this time? For their sake, hopefully something a little bit warmer. The celebration is in the middle of winter after all.

Don't Forget The Bombshell Lashes

Some cheese and a deep fryer. What is there not to like about this magical mixture of ingredients? Ok, lets be honest; this is not the most healthy treat created by mankind.

My girlfriend and I, well we decided that this New Year's, we will stuff ourselves with these tasty fried pieces of perfection.


About 5 cups vegetable oil

1 pound drained marinated bocconcini (small mozzarella balls), patted dry.
