Whether you laughed at Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman sneaking up behind a glamorous Angelina Jolie at the Cannes Film festival, or pondered with bewilderment at Lady Gaga‘s menacing stare down with Katy Perry — there was no denying Hollywood’s sudden fascination (or, in some cases, participation) in jumping behind the camera for a candid moment.
The On the Road star has been dragged through the mud since news broke of her cheating scandal with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director (Rupert Sanders) back in July. But in an interview with Newsweek, she publicly acknowledged the issue that she has kept quiet about for months.
“I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention,” Stewart continued.
The apology came this week as we stare down the New Year. Could it be that Stewart is ready to move on from all the bad press and turn over a new leaf?
It sure seems that way — and she’s taking it one step at a time.
“It’s a little annoying having to be so compartmentalized. I go from box to box to box. Like right now, this is so crazy ’cause we’re out at a restaurant,” she told the magazine. “But I’m going out a lot more now. I was starting to get closed off and self-conscious, and I’m trudging forth into the world more often.”

“The right products and techniques make it easy to have your client keep that just out of the salon look,” says celebrity hairstylist David Babaii. As the the longtime “mane” man behind stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman, he would know.
In the midst of his client’s busy schedules, the stylist is right there with them to create all of their looks. In addition to having the right materials on-hand, there is another mantra that he adheres to: healthy, shiny hair is always a style must. And, like styling hair, Babaii asserts that anyone can have achieve long beautiful hair with a few simple tips.
Some of Hollywood’s finest have been busy painting the town red — with their outfits.
Blake Livelyshowed off her gorgeous gams in a bedazzled red number in New York City. The Gossip Girl star was one of many celebrities on hand for the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief concert, held at Madison Square Garden.
Meanwhile on the west coast, Reese Witherspoon rocked a cute red print dress and suede boots as she headed out to lunch in Brentwood, Calif. The 36-year-old actress, who gave birth to her third child in September, recently told EXTRA that she’s working on her getting her pre-baby figure back.
“I don’t know if I’m bouncing back. I’m slowly crawling back,” she said.
“You just have to be gentle and patient with yourself . . . and slowly get back to your health.
Heather Locklear was also a vision in red, arriving to the L.A. premiere of This is 40 in a stylish ensemble that included knee high boots and a black leather jacket. The former Melrose Place star was joined by her teenage daughter Ava Elizabeth, who donned a little black dress for the red carpet affair.
In other celebrity sightings, Sarah Jessica Parker and her daughter Tabitha were spotted all bundled up while en route to school.
Since going public with their relationship in 2011, Wilde and Sudeikis have been frequently spotted taking romantic strolls, out on lunch dates or relaxing on the beach, all while sharing adorable moments of embrace.
Wilde, who currently lives in Manhattan with Sudeikis, recently told USA Today that she’s been living “a good life.”
“I’ve been decorating our new apartment. That’s a lot of what I do, too. I’m so domestic.”
Wilde was previously married to filmmaker Tao Ruspoli. The couple finalized their divorce in September 2011 after nearly eight years of marriage.

This week’s style motto: “Great minds think alike.” That, or middle school-style matching is making a comeback.
At an X Factor finalists party on Monday night, Khloe Kardashian proved she’s already in sync with the show’s judges, donning a nearly identical LBD to that worn by Britney Spearsand sporting a bright red pout likeDemi Lovato‘s.
But the ladies of the X Factor weren’t the only celebs playing the matching game this week. On the other end of the style spectrum, Olivia Wilde and Julianne Moore were a couple of fashion copycats in ethereal white dresses.
So who won this week’s style showdowns? We’re breaking down the matchy-matchy celeb styles — and then it’s your turn to weigh in.
Kicking off our style showdown: the X Factor fashion faceoff, with Kardashian and Spears in matching LBDs and Kardashian and Lovato in coordinating crimson pouts.
Kardashian showed off her svelte new figure in a long-sleeve black mini dress by Skaist Taylor. The reality star amped up the simple LBD with sleek accessories, including drop earrings from BaubleBar and shiny, pointy-toed pumps.
While Spears’ LBD was so similar to Kardashian’s that we did a double take, there were a few notable differences in the X Factor stars’ looks. Spears opted for a ruched style with a slightly longer knee-length hemline and exposed zippers on the sides. Like Kardashian, Spears kept it simple, nixing the jewelry and coordinating her footwear to her dress in black strappy sandals.
Though both stars sizzled in the similar sexy styles, the knee-length hemline of Spears’ LBD truncated the pop star’s frame, while Kardashian’s shorter hemline made her long legs appear even longer for an overall slimming effect.
Kardashian’s on-trend red lips also won our vote over Spears’ nude lips. But Lovato and Kardashian prove that red lips really are the new neutral — looking equally as chic when contrasted against Kardashian’s all-black ensemble and when coordinated with Lovato’s red dress.
Now, to the site of Monday’s other style showdown, the Ace Awards in New York City, where Wilde and Moore matched in belted white ladylike looks.
Wearing Calvin Klein, Wilde looked incredibly chic in a belted peplum style. Also in Calvin Klein, Moore, too, sported a shiny white below-the-knee style with a skinny black belt, causing us to wonder if the two stars called each other to coordinate beforehand.
This red carpet battle was almost too chic to call. We loved both stars’ chic belted LWDs, as well as how they each chose the most flattering style for their shape and age. But Wilde’s black snakeskin clutch and black pumps, both by Vince Camuto, which coordinated with the dress’ built-in belt, helped her to narrowly beat her chic competition. While Moore’s off-the-shoulder sheath exuded sophisticated elegance, her platform sandals and white chain clutch felt out-of place.

Though the ankle is still the hot height for boots, this season, the high-heeled booty takes a more practical turn. The rugged new looks comes in all heights too — from platform heels and higher stacked heels to wedges — for a goes-with-everything booty that will take you from the office to date-night and next-day brunch.
While it would be easy to assume that this more masculine style would be best left to the street stylers and models who could make shoulder pads look chic, the Chelsea boot is one trend worth investing in this season.
With a subtle but substantial heel providing just enough of a vertical boost to flatter your figure, and a subtly rugged, masculine vibe, this short stack is actually incredibly easily to pull off. And these booties will work with just about anything in your closet.
Wear them with a printed dress and a leather or denim jacket for a breezy daytime look, or pair them with a longer hemline to toughen up a glam gown or flowy floor-length skirt for a night-out with the girls.
A perfect match for a t-shirt and skinnies, like the motorcycle boot, the Chelsea is this off-duty look’s finishing touch for that cool-without-trying look.

In a statement released by Vulture, Wilde confessed to the audience, “I felt like my vagina died,” adding, “Turned off. Lights out . . . you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina.”
Her comments were thought to be of relevance to her previous marriage with Italian prince Tao Ruspoli and their failed marriage of eight years, especially since she was also reportedly discussed how her body was affected by the decision to split.
Wilde reminisced to the star-studded audience about her conscious choice to cut the cord with her ex in March of 2011. She recalled that her lady part stared up at her and said “Oh, you think?”
What are your thoughts on Wilde’s initial sex comments and now her reaction? Weigh in below.
