For those of you who are worried about how I’m taking the news that, once again, People magazine is naming someone besides Ryan Gosling as the “Sexiest Man Alive,” do not fret. I am alright. After all, I firmly believe that, for the second year in a row, Gosling actually rejected the title when it was offered to him. People would not be that stupid, you guys. Of course he was their pick last year and this year (and probably every year after). He just doesn’t want it. Come on now. Have some faith. This year I’m just happy that People‘s second choice is actually worthy of the title. (Bradley Cooper was a bust, let’s face it.) The magazine will reportedly be bestowing that honor upon Channing Tatum, my backup dream celebrity boyfriend. He is not above accepting such honors. While I love that the Gos is a little bit of a snot, the thing I really like about Channing is that he’s a bit lowbrow, you know? Ryan’s trash is Channing’s treasure and what not. Yin and yang. Anyway, now you know how I feel about this, so you can go back to worrying about more important things, like the fate of our country and stuff. [Gossip Cop]
I can already predict the chorus of “love it!” and “hate it!” responses to Drew Barrymore’s choice of wedding dress. It’s conservative, but it’s also Chanel. I can’t knock it. But most importantly — her bouquet is made up of peonies! So jealz. [People via Celeb Dirty Laundry]
Jessica Pare and Zooey Deschanel were photographed for People “Most Beautiful” issue and holy crap. Mmkay, so can we all just agree that Jessica Pare should NEVER WEAR MAKE UP AGAIN? That lady is so friggin’ gorgeous it’s ridonkulous. And Zooey? Well, whatever. Fart fart fart. You either love her or think her bangs are a contrived way to drive hipster dudes completely insane. In either case, we can’t wait to pick up the issue (on stands now) and see more of these makeup-free portraits, shot by Ben Watts. Other famous faces featured include Lily Collins, Paris Jackson, Rose Byrne and Paula Patton. And keep clicking through this slideshow to see more stars looking lovely sans fards. How refreshing to see how gorgeous celebs are without their faces on.
Beyonce has landed the title and cover of People‘s World’s Most Beautiful Woman issue, a fairly BS accolade, but hey, it’s the first time in nine years that a black woman has “won” so that’s something. Beyonce tells the mag that she does indeed feel beautiful, and more so than ever since giving birth to baby Blue Ivy. ”I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth,” she said of being a mom. “The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.” Aww, cute. [People]
