Gawd I always love Annie Leibovitz‘s spreads in Vanity Fair. They’re just so iconic. And the way she fits so many people together in such a delicately orchestrated frame, where everyone looks their absolute best. That must be talent, right? For the new issue, she’s photographed some of the best actresses in Hollywood who have given spectacular performances this past year. There’s Golden Globe and SAG Award winning Brie Larson, Lupita Nyong’o looking particularly stripped down, and then this fabulous portrait of Jennifer Lawrence and Jane Fonda. Oh and don’t forget Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, and many more. The magazine lists how many films each of the ladies has done, which is truly impressive. And of course Annie found a way to take these megastars and make them look, well, human. More »
Thanks to plus-size model and photographer Silvana Denker, women and men are taking to the streets of Germany in their skivvies. Silvana, who got sick of re-touching photos for magazines, started the #BodyLove campaign to remind the world that we aren’t defined by size. She told People Magazine, “I want to show the diversity of the human body. We are all different and there’s not the ONE perfect body like the media often shows us.”
Silvana wanted to reach as many people as possible with this idea, which is why she thought up taking photos of pedestrians in the street. She also, of course, decided against re-touching any of the photos. More »
Amy Schumer is on freaking FIRE. I mean that in two ways—career wise, and on the hotness scale. Amy has been slaying life, with a killer SNL performance, an HBO comedy special, and a movie in the works with Jennifer Lawrence. Now, alas, she has posed for the famous Pirelli calendar (2016), and is lookin’ damn fine.
Famous photog Annie Leibovitz took the shot, which features Amy posing topless in panties, holding a cup of coffee and looking at the camera. I just love it. She looks so natural in that stance, but so sexy at the same time. More »
"Whatever you believe. Share it. I'm at a point where I'm not going to hold this in."
After successfully enduring a year of criminally bad behavior, Justin Bieber appears to be walking the straight and narrow in an attempt to clean up his image and live his life right … I guess. In a new cover story interview with Complex magazine, JB talks about host of subjects including his feelings on Christianity and religion. According to JB, it is his intent to “live like Jesus” because, he says, Jesus created a “pretty awesome template of how to love people” and, you know, that “he died for our sins” stuff. That’s not to say that The Biebs wants to BE Jesus, cuz “that would be weird”. That’s also not to say that he’s religious because he is really bothered by the “really weird stuff going on at churches” … so to be clear, he says that one can live like Jesus and not be Jesus nor go to church because, he says, “You don’t need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco.” Got it? Want more? Read on. More »
From 'Anarchy' to Monarchy
Actor Charlie Hunnam is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of VMan magazine to promote his new film Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he is pulling out ALL of the stops to bring us one of his best photospreads ever.

Flaunt magazine is featuring the queen of all things, Beyoncé, on the cover of their annual CALIFUK (California + UK) issue and as you can see in the gallery presented here, she reigns in absolute supremacy (sorry about that, QE, II). The photoshoot looks deceptively simple (just the subject, wearing minimal clothing, and a pool) but each photo is a practical masterpiece. Shot by photographer Robin Harper, Beyoncé shines beautifully in this spread. Click through the gallery to see the photos and head over to Flaunt magazine HERE to read the cover feature article. Bey is so perfect, always, it is really hard to process sometimes. Queen.
Have you all been watching HBO‘s new miniseries Show Me a Hero? If not, please get on that. Now, it may have taken me a minute to come to the conclusion that Oscar Isaac Hernández is hot, but I have now arrived. And damn. I was editing this interview one of our writers at Paste did with him, and I’m not gonna lie—when I read about his nationality (Guatemalan, Cuban and French… Lordt), a lightbulb went off and I was all, “Ohhh, is that what it is?” As in, “Is that why I’ve been trying to figure out where he came from and why I find him so ridiculously attractive, even when he’s playing former Yonkers mayor Nick Wasicsko?” So yes. Please enjoy this gallery of hotness featuring the incredibly hot Oscar Isaac. Who is hot.

Because, of course
Earlier this month, Bobbi Kristina Brown — the only begotten child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston — was laid to rest after she passed away after months in a coma, which stemmed from injuries she suffered from her bathtub drowning back in January. As you may recall, Bobbi Kristina‘s boyfriend Nick Gordon was not allowed to attend the funeral or the burial because the Brown/Houston family faults him for her death. Today we learn that Nick paid a recent visit to BK‘s gravesite so that he could be photographed by The National Enquirer for a cover story feature … for which he was reportedly paid $40,000. The National Enquirer will feature “10 dramatic photos” in their new issue, two of which are featured on their magazine cover … which you can see below. More »
