Lea Michele: Her Allure Photo Shoot

Lea Michele bares it all: the Glee rumors, what it was like to strip down on stage, and why she’s proud to be a diva. Check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from her cover shoot with Norman Jean Roy. For more of our interview with the star, pick up the December issue of Allure, on newsstands November 22. For more exclusives, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.


Michele is confident in her unconventional beauty. “Have I been asked to change anything? Uh-huh. Uh-huh. When I was 15, my mother and I went to meet a manager who said, ‘You have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you,'” Michele tells us. “My mother would say to me, ‘Barbra Streisand never got a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And this was before I really even knew who Barbra was. I just knew that she was, like, the messiah for girls like me.”

Michele has heard the stories of her diva-like behavior. At a Time magazine party, when a photographer asked who she was, she reportedly replied, “Sarah Palin”—a remark that was taken to be a snotty “Don’t you know who I am?” “I was being silly,” Michele says. “But anyway, that’s a huge thing I learned…. Not everybody knows you and has the same sense of humor. At the same time, if I couldn’t be myself, I’d lose my mind.”

“I came from the theater world, where the word ‘diva’ was awesome,” she continues. “But it’s different in Los Angeles. And this all happened to me so quickly. But I came to L.A., and the first audition I went on was for Glee. And I was on the show two months later and had a very different life.” Here, Michele poses in a lace-and-silk-satin bra by Agent Provocateur and Norma Kamali briefs.

Like many young actresses in the spotlight, Michele became the subject of eating-disorder rumors when she suddenly looked very thin during the summer of 2010. Not so, she says—the weight loss was due to a surgery she had because of an infection in her jaw. “I’m half Italian,” says the actress. “I can eat some bitches under the table.” Polyamide elastane bra by Stella McCartney.

How to achieve Lea Michele’s look- Celebrity Beauty Fashion Trend: Winged Eyeliner

Here are a few tips:

1.) Fill in your brows, no sexy eye is complete without a nice thick brow

2.) Find a good liquid or cream liner. Use a small pointed brush or a pointed eyeliner pencil or pen.  Also, by using a black eyeshadow to start the wing off before using the eyeliner. Starting your liner at the corner of the eyelid extending it outward to the corner of your eye ending it with a wing out movement.  Then go back over the eyeshadow with a liquid eyeliner to seal in the look.

3.) Dramatic eyes call for a nude lip. Keep it classy and sassy. Keeping lips simple and putting  focus only on the eyes not the mouth.

4.) Curling large sections of your hair with a small barrel curling iron,  then comb lightly comb the curls out and spray with a light hairspray. To avoid frizzy curls finish off the look with some shine serum or shine spray of your choice.

Actress Alyssa Milano And David Bugliari Welcomed Their Newborn Son Milo Thomas

31 Aug Alyssa-Milano-Pregnant-100291A

Despite Recent Reports Angelina Jolie Assures Vanity Fair That There Is ‘No Secret Wedding’

30 Aug Angelina-Jolie-Vanity-Fair-Cover-October-2011-100292


Angelina Jolie’s stunningly beautiful face is featured on the cover of the upcoming October 2011 issue of Vanity Fair Magazine. The 36 year-old actress wants to set the record straight, assuring us she is NOT pregnant, NOT secretly married to Brad Pitt, and not adopting at the moment.

Yep, Angie wants to put all those rumors to rest… at least this week. In spite of being a hands-on mother of six, Angelina still had time to write and direct her own movie titled “In the Land Of Blood and Honey”, which will most certainly change the way she will approach future projects as an actress.

“Brad thinks I’m going to be a nightmare,” Angie Jokes.  “I had such a good experience he thinks I’m going to be impatient with directors, which I already am. I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it’s the most complicated thing in the world.”

“I’ve never felt more exposed. My whole career, I’ve hidden behind other people’s words,” Angelina says Cohen of her screenwriting and feature directorial debut. “Now it’s me talking. You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong.”

What prompted a mother of six to write her a script? “I had the flu. I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France. I was isolated, pacing. I don’t watch TV and I wasn’t reading anything. So I started writing. I went from the beginning to the end. I didn’t know any other way,” Angie reveals.

When Brad read the script on a trip, he really saw raw talent in his life partner. “He called and said, ‘You know, honey, it’s not that bad.’” Brad is always so supportive. Angelina wanted to see her script come to life, but she didn’t trust anybody else with that job and that’s why she decided it was time to make her directorial debut.

On Brad’s role and support, Angelina says, “He’d come in and say what he liked or what he didn’t understand. Like any woman, I would listen to most of it and fight a few things. He’s been so supportive. But it’s hard to separate the person that loves you from the critic, so I don’t think he’s a fair judge.”

In the Land Of Blood and Honey” is a love story set during the Bosnian War. The movie was shot by local actors in two versions (English, and Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian language known as BCS) and is set to be released in the US on December 23, 2011.

We Remember R&B Singer Aaliyah Dana Haughton- 10 Year Anniversary Of Her Death

25 Aug Aaliyah-Remembered-10-Years-100393

It’s been a decade since the tragic death of R&B star and budding actress Aaliyah Dana Haughton. Just 22 years old at the time of her death, she was in the Bahamas heading back to the States after wrapping up her 2001 music video, “Rock The Boat.” The twin-engine plane crashed shortly after takeoff.

Aboard were Aaliyah and eight others — including her hair stylist, Eric Forman, makeup artists Anthony Dodd and Christopher Maldonado, security guard Scott Gallin, video producer Douglas Kratz, Blackground Records employees Keith Wallace and Gina Smith, and the pilot, Luis Morales III. In an instant their lives and Aaliyah’s promising career were gone. Celebrity/Newsroom

Celebrity Style: Jennifer Lopez Stunning Affordable Clothing Line Comes Out In Fall 2011

17 Aug jennifer-lopez-affordble-clothing-kohls-200394

Jennifer Lopez is in the house! And she’s making over eight O readers in her fabulous new clothing line. (Most pieces are under $100!)

In her 20-year career, Jennifer Lopez has been many things—Fly Girl, actress, singer, tabloid fixture, wife, mother, American Idol judge—but understated has never been one of them. When she arrives at O’s Manhattan fashion shoot in boyfriend jeans and teetering stiletto boots, not a hair out of place, the eight women we’ve assembled to model her new fashion line can’t help murmuring in amazement. Even off-camera Lopez doesn’t blend in.

Not that she doesn’t try. “Hi, I’m Jennifer,” she says, shaking hands with each of the women, among them a teacher, a lawyer, and a newly minted college graduate. They’re the reason Lopez is here; her brand-new collection of casually glamorous, uncannily flattering, expensive-seeming “movie star on the go” pieces (as O creative director Adam Glassman describes them) was designed for women like them. The line—from faux-fur vests to liquid-gold jersey tops, animal-print wrap dresses to comfy, slimming cocoon sweaters—debuts at Kohl’s in September in a generous array of sizes, with meticulous attention to fit.

Lopez insists she relates to these women’s concerns. “I’m a mom,” she says simply. “I work. I want comfort. But I want to feel sexy and modern. I think most women want the same things.” She says motherhood (twins Max and Emme turned 3 in February) hasn’t dulled her trademark body-conscious style—just made it slightly trickier to pull off.

Today Lopez will work behind the scenes to style our photo shoot. “This is overwhelming,” she says excitedly as the women—the first nonmodels she’s seen in her clothes—start playing dress-up. She helps Julie Seely, MD, a 55-year-old physician, pull on a tailored tweed top with a flattering cinched belt over black ponte leggings; Seely is duly impressed. “I need pieces I can wear to the office but also make a little sharper and classier in the evening,” she says. “I could wear this easily with pumps or flats.” Meanwhile, Jordan Tesfay, a 31-year-old lawyer, has slipped into skinny jeans and a formfitting tunic. “I feel fabulous,” she says. “This is snug in all the right places. I put it on and thought, ‘That’s me?'”

Lopez looks thrilled. While she’s sold more than 55 million albums and starred in films opposite George Clooney and Robert Redford, her previous forays into design “weren’t exactly what I wanted them to be,” she admits. This time she was adamant that the clothes be pieces she’d actually wear herself—and stayed involved in every step of the process to ensure her standards weren’t compromised. Judging by today’s results, she’s succeeded. Her pieces have a refreshing “9-to-9″ versatility, Glassman says, meaning they up the wattage of an unfussy daytime look and, with the addition of a sparkly accessory, transition easily to nighttime.

When the women are decked out in a feminine palette of blushes, alabasters, grays, and creams, each piece hugging and accentuating exactly what it should, Lopez joins them on set for a group photo. “I wasn’t ready!” she calls to the photographer with mock-diva outrage, provoking laughter all around. But she’s completely sincere when she says, “This is the fulfilling part—to have women tell me, ‘This is so comfortable, it fits so well.'”

Halle Berry Celebrated Her 45th Birthday With Daughter Nahla At Her Beach House

16 Aug Halle-Berry-45th-Birthday-100293

Photos by Pacific Coast News

Halle Berry celebrates her 45th birthday with her three year daughter Nahla and family and friends at her beach house in Malibu.

Halle Berry celebrated her 45th birthday on August 14, 2011 with a Malibu bikini romp that has everyone gawking.

“I see it happening and there’s nothing I can do about it,” Berry once said of aging. “I want to fight it, I want to punch it out, get mad at it and argue with it, but gravity says, ‘I’m coming and I’m coming to get you!'”

However, Berry seems to be winning that race against gravity so far. Photos circulating from her day in the sun prove that to her, age is just a number — and that goes beyond the superficial. There’s no doubt that Berry has one rocking body for a woman of any age. In fact, the new bikini shots making the rounds look remarkably similar to her famous Die Another Day bikini shot almost a decade ago, in 2002.

The new pics not only reflect a total knockout, but they also catch Berry being young at heart — playing in the sand, maneuvering the rocks with her daughter and even wrestling with a gal pal.

Needless to say, the shots of two ladies wrestling are making the rounds for other reasons, but SheKnows loves them because they show Berry isn’t too grown up — or divalicious! — to get down and dirty. She seems to have put up a good fight on the shore, but ultimately crashed in defeat into the water. Even as Berry’s friend threw her down, however, Berry was grinning ear to ear.

While some outlets are reporting Berry’s beau Olivier Martinez was part of the beach outing, E! reports he couldn’t make the celebration. He was, however, around for the brunch celebration at Mirabelle in Los Angeles the day before.
