Kristen Stewart When it came time for the red carpet at last night's Met Gala, we had a list of people we couldn't wait to see-and Kristen Stewart was definitely one of them. The 23-year-old starlet turned up (sadly without Robert Pattinson) in a glamorous red jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, and was instantly one of the night's standout stars.

Naturally, we had to consult her longtime stylist, Tara Swennen-who also dressed Teresa Palmer in Diane von Furstenberg for the big night-to get the full scoop. Swennen and K-Stew have worked together since the actress was 14 years old, so it's no surprise that she has some great insight into the A-lister's much-discussed sense of style.
Below, Swennen dishes on what it takes to style such a major event, as well as Stewart's fashion evolution, and the one trend the "Twilight" actress refuses to try.

As much as we hate to admit it, the fashion at this year's Costume Institute Benefit-a.k.a. the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, was a little more more "meh gala" than "Met Gala."
Considering the grandiose ball marked the official debut of the museum's upcoming exhibit "Punk: Chaos to Couture"-and attendees' attire is typically loosely inspired by the exhibition's theme-we thought we were in for a dizzying fashion spectacle filled with leather corsets, ripped flannel gowns, and maybe a combat boot or two.
While that wasn't exactly the case, we did notice that quite a few celebrities in attendance looked as if they were channeling other famous folks with their "punk" looks.
Whether it was Miley Cyrus doing her best Guy Fieri impersonation (no offense, honey: We totally thought you were one of the only ones who worked the night's theme to a T), or Sarah Jessica Parker taking cues from a rare African bird, here are 5 celebrity doppelgangers straightRead More »from Miley Cyrus Does Her Best Guy Fiere; 4 More Met Gala Doppelgängers

Kim and Kanye When most people are seven months pregnant, a date night ensemble might consist of something a bit more comfy than a tight black dress and sky-high white pumps, but not for Kim Kardashian.

The 32-year-old reality starlet touched down in New York yesterday-presumably to attend the Met Gala tonight with boyfriend Kanye West-and immediately got some private time in with her rapper beau while clad in a chic dress from Prada's memorable Spring 2013 collection. Of course, we use the phrase "private time" loosely, as she posted the above image to Instagram, where she has over 8 million feverish followers. Us Weekly reports that the duo were attending an intimate dinner at Anna Wintour's townhouse, so it's no surprise that she opted to wear a dress from this particular collection-which is clearly one of Wintour's favorites.
Kim captioned the photo "Date night with my ❤" and, considering all

Kate Middleton Considering Kate Middleton is pretty much Britain's de facto queen, it's not terribly shocking that, in the past, she nabbed a spot on the U.K.'s edition of FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World list. In fact, she clocked in at number 33 last year.

This year, however, it seems the Duchess has disappeared completely from the roundup. This could be due to two possibilities:
1. British men are being rude: She got pregnant, ipso facto she's no longer sexy.
2. British men are being respectful: She's married to the future King of England, she's the granddaughter-in-law of the reigning queen, and she's got a baby on the way-maybe she placing her alongside girls in monokinis and wet T-shirts isn't the nation's first priority.
Truth be told, our first instict was to assume the former was true, but then we got off our soapbox and realized the omission could be

Continuing his (at best) bizarre relationship with the social media platform, Kanye decided this morning to delete every single past tweet and replace them all with this cryptic gem: "June Eighteen."
After New York-based DJ Peter Rosenberg spoke out this week about West's next album-he said it's "done" and "very dark"- the most obvious possible meaning is that June 18 is its release date. But considering Yeezy's storied history with Twitter, there's really no telling what the rapper and soon-to-be-dad was trying to convey with the mysterious message. However, that doesn't mean it's not worth a shot. Below, five educated guesses at what Kanye's trying to tell the world.
Kanye West's Mysterious Tweet
1. It's Kim's due date. Ever since Kanye's girlfriend, reality starlet Kim Kardashian, announced she was pregnant with his kid in December, we've

Joey Fatone and PinkCelebrities are a fickle bunch, especially when it comes to their personal lives. In fact, many of them have past relationships that few of us even know about. Take Pink, for example. Today, the rocker-who's on the cover of Glamour's June issue told the magazine about a shocking celebrity ex, none other than boy band veteran Joey Fatone.

The latest in the seemingly never-ending pool of celebrity sex tapes involves Farrah Abraham, one of MTV's "Teen Mom" stars who hired porn star star James Deen to shoot a "home video" with her. We all scoffed at her shameless ways-but today it was confirmed that she sold the video for $1.5 million.
Of course, a huge sum of money doesn't make an act like this okay, but celebrity sex tapes have been big business for years. While many only seem to remember recent examples like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, there actually have been a number other (and not so famous) stars who have had their intimate business released for the world to see. And, in some cases, they've even released the tapes themselves, like Abraham.

Lindsay Lohan What do you do when you're an incredibly controversial 26-year-old starlet who's notoriously difficult on movie sets and you want a new job after your court-ordered 90 days in rehab? Well, it's the 21st century-and that means only thing: You blog about it!

Page Six reports that Lindsay Lohan will be following up her stay this summer at the Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach with a gig blogging for website Celebuzz about lessons she's learned. Her ultimate goal would apparently be to "launch her own site with her musings on art, fashion, music and movies." Frankly, the move doesn't seem too off the mark for the actress-Lohan definitely considers herself an authority on the arts (see: Her former Twitter bio, which stated that she was an "artist of many things").

Last week, a 2012 Urban Outfitters financial report surfaced online that included comments made by the company's CEO Richard Hayne that essentially explained his marketing philosophy to Wall Street folks. To specifically describe the target Urban Outfitters shopper-the company also owns Anthropologie and Free People-Hayne said this: "The Urban customer, we always talk about, is the upscale homeless person, who has a slight degree of angst and is probably in the life stage of 18 to 26."
Now, we're pretty sure his remark was meant merely to evoke a specific image, but it was only a matter of time before angry Internet commenters started to take him to task over the use of the word "homeless."
This got us thinking about that fact that the fashion industry has been referencing (even fetishizing, some might say) the homeless for years now, in everything from editorials, runway collections, and comments to the media-and often creating mini-controversiesRead More »from Fashion's Fascination with Homeless: See Offensive Examples

Jessica Alba Stars-they aren't really like us. When we're looking to drop a few fast pounds, we head to the gym for a quick workout a few times a week (or at least we say we will, then sit on the couch watching "Law & Order" instead), but celebrities spend a good part of their lives focusing on intense fitness regimens and diets in order to appear perfect at all times, but sometimes, they take it to extremes that are just plain crazy. Below, we've complied the 10 most shocking (and downright weird) celebrity weight loss tricks and secrets.
