Celebrity Style: Is The Side-Butt The New Side-Boob?

April 26th, 2013 7:03pm EDT
Eliza Doolittle
The latest fashion trend to catch on with all the sexy female celebrities is "side-butt." In the past several singers and actresses would opt for dresses with open sides, giving a glimpse at the outsides of their breasts - or "side-boob," and it seems as if the trend has taken a new turn into baring the sides of the (very) upper thighs.

While a few stars had done it in the past, it wasn't until Gwyneth Paltrow wore a very revealing green dress at the "Iron Man 3" premiere in late April. The dress may have gone overlooked (frankly, the Antonio Berardi gown was pretty ugly) if it wasn't for ...

October 10th, 2012 9:06pm EDT
Phoebe Catest Fast Times at Ridgemont High
There are dozens of actresses who have no problem taking off their tops for the sake of a movie role, and their choices can end up either hurting or helping their careers.

Some stars say they'd do it only if the "right role" came along; and others simply refuse to go topless for any reason. And sometimes an actress's decision to go topless for a role can overshadow the movie itself -- which can be good (Demi Moore in Striptease) or bad (Jessica Biel in Powder Blue).

With the advent of the internet, many of these scenes now live on forever, but with topless and nude scenes a-dime-a-dozen, ...

Kate Winslet is so over Celine Dion and that hauntingly annoying Titanic theme song "My Heart Will Go On" -- so much so that it makes her want to barf!

The first time you heard it, it made you want to cry. The 80th time you heard it it made you want to smash your car radio to pieces. Celine Dion's theme from Titanic, "My Heart Will Go On," was everywhere when the movie was first released, and now that Titanic 3D is back 16 years later, so are memories of the epic ballad.

Just don't play it around Kate Winslet. Whenever this Oscar-winning actress hears those pan flutes, she wants to puke....
