Model Mogul Tyra Banks Celebrates Her 41st Birthday Today


December 4, 2014 @ 7:15 am

One of the world’s original top models turns 41 today: Tyra Banks!

The one-time Victoria’s Secret catwalker-turned-mogul boasts a modeling career that spans over two decades, and has also successfully delved into acting, hosting her own talk show, fiction writing, launching America’s Next Top Model (now in its 11th year!) and most recently, her own makeup line.

The one thing she won’t be doing? A Victoria’s Secret reunion. “I said no, because I was trying to be taken seriously as a talk show host and an executive producer and a business woman,” Banks told Bravo’s Andy Cohen about the offer she received a few years ago. She added, however, that whenever she sees “the OG, original Angels,” Heidi Klum and Gisele Bündchen, she still feels like “we have a connection.”

Take a look back at the model mogul’s standout beauty moments, starting with this gem from Banks’s early years, walking on the Paris runways.

Happy Birthday, Britney Spears! See the Star’s Best Beauty Moments Through the Years


December 2, 2014 @ 7:14 am

Happy birthday, Britney Spears! The performer rings in her 33rd year today. It seems like just yesterday that the one-time brunette shot to stardom with her single “Baby One More Time” at the age of 16. Since then, the Princess of Pop has delivered chart-topping hits and best-selling fragrances, has launched a lingerie and sleepwear collection, and has even delved into acting with her leading role in 2002’s Crossroads, opposite Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning, and her stint on How I Met Your Mother.

The Grammy winner currently headlines her own Vegas show (she’s had the residency for the past year) and plans to stick around through 2016. It’s been a whirlwind career for Spears—who as a working mom to sons Sean, 9, and Jayden, 8, makes it look seamless—and her recipe for success couldn’t be more straightforward. She tells InStyle, “Finding balance and happiness—and being healthy” are the keys to a fulfilled life.

Happy 75th Birthday to the Legendary Tina Turner!


November 26, 2014 @ 7:15 am

Today, Tina Turner is ringing in her 75th birthday. The iconic performer, who first got her start in the ’50s as a singer with Ike Turner’s Kings of Rhythm, shot to stardom with hits like “River Deep – Mountain High” and “What’s Love Got to Do with It.” Although the eight-time Grammy winner has decades of on-stage performances under her belt, Turner swept audiences away at her sold-out farewell tour a mere five years ago, proving her fireball energy is very much at an all-time high. In honor of the queen of rock and roll’s birthday, take a look back at the most memorable Grammys performances ever—Turner’s included.

Happy Birthday, Ryan Gosling! You’ve Always Been a Heartthrob

Happy birthday, Ryan Gosling! The actor, who turns 34 today, got his start as a mouseketeer on The Mickey Mouse Club with fellow member Justin Timberlake (they even lived together!) After playing Rachel McAdams’s lover in The Notebook (a romance we all wish continued IRL), Gosling experimented with darker roles, such as a drug-addicted teacher in Half Nelson and a stunt driver in Drive. And just as Emma Stone did, we gawked at his abs in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

The Canadian heartthrob looked as dapper as ever back in May at the Cannes Film Festival, where he presented his directorial debut, Lost River. Now the Golden Globe nominee has a new role: father to Esmeralda Amada with longtime girlfriend Eva Mendes. He may be off the market but, hey girl, don’t worry: You can still admire his best looks here.

Happy Birthday, Matthew McConaughey! See the Interstellar Star’s Best Red Carpet Looks

Happy birthday, Matthew McConaughey! The actor turns 45 today. While his acting career took off from starring in addictive romantic comedies opposite Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lopez, McConaughey has since foregone putting his chiseled abs on full display, and has instead opted for roles of the more dramatic variety.

Cases in point: his critically acclaimed performances in HBO’s True Detective, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Dallas Buyers Club—the last of which earned him his first Oscar. And now, the father of three is adding yet another buzz-worthy movie title to his growing repertoire in Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s latest film that also stars Hollywood heavyweights Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain.

It’s Katy Perry’s 30th Birthday! See Her Transform from High School Freshman to Pop Queen


October 25, 2014 @ 8:10 am

Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, the wildly personable and international pop icon Katy Perry rings in the big 3-0 today, but that’s not all the singer has to celebrate.

Since her introductory days into the music industry as a gospel singer (adorable, right?), the “Roar” songstress has solidified her place among the best-selling artists of all time after her Teenage Dream album became the first by a female artist to produce five No. 1 songs in a row. All in a day’s work for Katy Perry, but that’s what you’d expect from an artist who has sold more than 72 million digital singles, which made her the best-selling digital singles artist in the U.S. earlier this year. And as if you aren’t already impressed, Katy added Twitter tycoon to her already extensive list of accolades when she became the first person to hit 50 million followers, which broke the Guinness World Record for most Twitter followers and officially inspired us to step up our social-media game.

Ever the daring, fashion-forward trendsetter, word on the street is Katy is in the market to produce her own fashion brand, a move that will surely send every Katy Cat clamoring for a piece of the “Firework” singer’s audacious style. Speaking of which, we can’t wait to see what crowd-pleasing fashion liberties she will take when she headlines the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show on Feb. 1.

Is there anything this superwoman can’t do? Katy Perry for president! Just kidding, but really.
