Jane Lynch
"Glee's" Jane Lynch, who served as the night's host, rocked a menswear-inspired black-and-white outfit that reminded us of the uniform she wore as part of a catering crew on the 2009-2010 TV comedy "Party Down." All she's missing is the pink bowtie! (5/21/2012)
Chaka Khan
Singer Chaka Khan, who recently shed 60 pounds, flaunted her newly slim figure in an attention-grabbing dress that looked more suited for a Las Vegas show than a swanky soiree. Oh well, she seems to like it! (5/21/2012)
Martha Stewart

amFAR's Star-Filled Soiree

Celebs from Heidi Klum to Gerard Butler to Kim Kardashian hit one of Cannes' biggest parties, the Cinema Against Aids gala, on Thursday night, to help raise money for a good cause.
Kim Kardashian

    She has no real involvement in the world of film, but reality star Kim Kardashian has been front and center at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival on the French Riviera all week. On Thursday night she arrived (sans Kanye) at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS benefit, one of the festival's most buzzed-about events. This year, the bash, which included an auction, raised $11 million, the most in amfAR's history.

Heidi Klum

"Project Runway" host Heidi Klum showed off some serious skin in this Marchesa creation. (That's part of the fun of being a model, after all.) The mom of four wasn't just a guest at the party, she was also a prize. A package of items being auctioned off included a backrub by none other than Heidi herself. The bundle of goodies fetched a whopping $75,000 ... and we're sure Heidi's dress helped drive up the bidding!
Gerard Butler
Hunky Gerard Butler didn't ditch his signature scruff for the black-tie gala. And why should he? The trip is more pleasure than business. The 42-year-old recently said in an AP interview that he had no plans to go to any premieres. "You can't really go down other people's press lines. You have to make sure you're politically correct. It's a bit of a bummer."
Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst, who is in Cannes to promote her upcoming movie "On the Road," based on the Jack Kerouac novel, popped a pose in a powder-blue Louis Vuitton gown with a train. The 30-year-old has been making headlines over the past few days for her sizzling hot looks at the festival, but this one cooled things down a bit. What do you think?
Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton was the guest of photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, who shot the heiress earlier in the day for a Bridget Bardot-inspired shoot. "Such a beautiful event and great cause," Hilton tweeted at the amfAR celebration. "It's so important to give back."
Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin and his fiancee, yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, looked like they were already a bride and groom thanks to her white Roberto Cavalli gown (with Chopard jewels) and his sharp tux. (5/24/2012)
Aishwarya Rai
Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai, who’s been slammed by critics in India for not upholding her "duty" of returning to her pre-baby figure nearly six months after she gave birth, stayed pretty covered up on the red carpet. The actress and former beauty queen – dubbed the most beautiful woman in the world – previously said that she was not concerned with losing the weight and planned to "enjoy motherhood.”
Milla Jovovich
Milla Jovovich looked out of this world in a space-inspired creation from Atelier Versace. The actress' shimmery dress boasted an architectural corset and metallic gold boning. (5/24/2012)
Adrian Brody
Adrien Brody donned a tux for the soiree ... a far cry from the shirtless look the 39-year-old went with the day before while partying on a yacht. Sounds like a fun week!
Kate Upton
If you didn't recognize Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl Kate Upton, you're probably just not used to seeing her in so much clothing. Between the foofy dress and the bouffant hairdo, you'd never guess this was a 19-year-old!
Rose McGowan
Rose McGowan chose a hue that best represents her: rose! The "Planet Terror" actress owned an Atelier Versace creation with tulle skirt from its Fall 2010 line. (5/24/2012)
Nina Dobrev
"Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev showed a lot of her toned, tanned left leg in a midnight blue Elie Saab gown. At the charity event, one lucky bidder won a "bite" from the sexy actress.
Rodrigo Santoro
Rodrigo Santoro, who plays Jennifer Lopez's husband in "What to Expect When You're Expecting," heated up the red carpet with his mix of dapper and scruffy.
Tara Reid
Party girl Tara Reid cleaned pretty nicely in a taupe gown with white flower embroidery and her hair pulled back in a simple bun. (5/24/2012)
Michelle Rodriguez
"The Fast and the Furious" actress Michelle Rodriguez looked polished in a figure-flattering black gown with mermaid skirt, layered diamond necklace, and chandelier earrings.

2 Hot 2 Handle

This week's best-dressed celebs include Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lopez, and Jessica Alba. -- By Matt Whitfield, Yahoo! Staff
Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart rocked an equestrian-like look upon arriving at a "Snow White and the Huntsman" industry screening in L.A. on Tuesday night. The 22-year-old actress -- who was outfitted by designer Stella McCartney -- paired a high-collar blouse with a black blazer and matching mini skirt. A loose updo, smokey eye makeup, and two-tone platform pumps completed her youthful yet chic ensemble. (5/29/2012)

Charlize Theron
Earlier that day, Stewart's on-screen nemesis, Charlize Theron (aka The Evil Queen), looked stunning in an all-black getup as she headed to a taping of "Today" at Rockefeller Center. While we like her sophisticated Lanvin sheath, we love her sexy Christian Louboutin ankle boots, which retail for a whopping $1,300! (5/29/2012)
Jennifer Lopez
"American Idol's" latest installment came to a conclusion just last week, but that doesn't mean J.Lo is ready to step out of the spotlight. Over the weekend, she made a special appearance in Sin City to celebrate the launch of her new single, "Goin' In." For the occasion, the diva extraordinaire donned a Zuhair Murad mini dress, which featured long sleeves and gold-sequined leaves, along with sparkly Louboutin heels. (5/26/2012)
Lea Michele
Meanwhile, at the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards in London, Lea Michele struck a pose in Zac Posen. The "Glee" cutie -- who was named U.S. Actress of the Year -- oozed elegance by accessorizing her sapphire gown with a cocktail ring and statement earrings courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz. (5/29/2012)
Kelly Rowland
Following in Lea's footsteps was former Destiny's Child member, Kelly Rowland, who looked better than ever at the star-studded soiree in a Maria Grachvogel halterneck gown, which featured a lengthy train and an equally dramatic pattern on the back. What do you make of Ms. Rowland's frock? Hot or not? (5/29/2012)
Last Friday, Kelly's ex bandmate, Beyonce, hit the stage in Atlantic City for the first time since giving birth to baby Blue Ivy in January. Looking as (Sasha) fierce as ever, the singer slammed through an entertaining set while wearing this custom-made, Swarovski crystal-encrusted Ralph & Russo piece and hot pink Stuart Weitzman shoes. (5/25/2012)
Camilla Alvez
Across the Atlantic -- at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of "Mud" -- Matthew McConaughey's fiancee, Camila Alves, dropped jaws in this Marchesa masterpiece. A wavy 'do and diamond accents gave the Brazilian beauty an extra ounce of va-va-voom. (5/26/2012)
Eva Longoria
Also photographed in the South of France was "Desperate Housewives" alumna Eva Longoria, who wore this slinky Reem Acra dress to the annual Global Gift Gala. Diamond studs and a smile made for the perfect accessories. (5/28/2012)
Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens looked incredibly mature as she made her way down the arrivals line in an Alberta Ferretti frock at a recent charity event in Monaco. Can the former "High School Musical" hottie keep it up, or will she land in our What Were They Thinking?! gallery in the coming weeks? Discuss! (5/25/2012)
Nicole Scherzinger
And last but not least we have Nicole Scherzinger, who combined two of my all-time fave trends -- nautical-themed apparel and jumpsuits -- while supporting her racing buff beau at the Monte Carlo Grand Prix. Yes, the floppy sun hat and matching Louis Vuitton purse are a bit much, but she's a Pussycat Doll, so it's to be expected. (5/27/2012)

Katy Perry Hot & Beautiful Photos

Katy Perry is an American singer, songwriter and actress who became the first female artist in music history to have five number-one singles from a studio album on the Billboard Hot 100.
Katy Perry (Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson) was born in Santa Barbara, California, on October 25, 1984 and is of German, Portuguese, Irish, and English ancestry. Perry grew up in a very religious household as both her parents were pastors. She began singing in her church and listened to gospel music growing up, as Perry was not allowed to listen to, what her mother referred to as, “secular music”.

Perry began taking vocal lessons at age nine and continued until she was sixteen. When she was 15, Perry moved to Nashville, Tennesee where she honed her songwriting skills and learned to play the guitar under the guidance of country music veterans. Perry signed to a Christian music label, under which she recorded her first album under the stage name Katy Hudson. When the album was unsuccessful, she later changed her stage name to Perry, her mother’s maiden name, because “Katy Hudson” was too close to film actress Kate Hudson.
Perry saw commercial success after signing with Capitol Records and the release of her mainstream debut album ‘One of the Boys’ in 2008, which spawned the worldwide hit ‘I Kissed a Girl’. Perry’s success reached new heights with the release of her second album ‘Teenage Dream’ in 2010. The album’s first five singles – ‘California Gurls,’ ‘Teenage Dream,’ ‘Fireworks,’ ‘E.T.’ and ‘Last Friday Night’ – all topped the singles chart, making Perry only the second artist (after Michael Jackson) in Billboard history to amass five number-one singles from one album. Despite her chart achievements and eight nominations, Perry has never won a Grammy.
Perry is known for her bubbly personality and often wears humorous stage outfits when performing. She has launched two perfumes, and made her film debut by voicing Smurfette in the ‘The Smurfs’. Perry has made cameo appearances as herself in ‘The Simpsons,’ ‘Sesame Street,’ ‘The Muppets’ and ‘Get Him to the Greek,’ where she met actor Russell Brand during filming. After a few months of dating, Perry married Brand in India but filed for divorce just 14 months later.
