Barbara Walters has named Amal Clooney 2014’s most fascinating person. Certainly, the celebrated human rights attorney was very interesting before she married a movie star, but in the eyes of the public, she became infinitely more fascinating because she managed to finally get former noted bachelor George Clooney tied down.
She’s “in that stratosphere that we reserve for the Jackie Os or the Princess Dis and Kate Middletons,” said Walters, calling her wedding to Clooney “one of the greatest achievements in human history.” We’re guessing she was being tongue-in-cheek with that turn of phrase because, well, we did land on the moon in 1969. In the segment, Walters harkens back to a 1995 interview in which Clooney definitely says he would never marry again. Nineteen years later and here he is, wed to the most fascinating (and stylish!) woman in the world.

Never one to shy away from a surprise ensemble, Iggy Azalea stood loud and proud in this orange-on-orange get-up at Z100’s 2014 Jingle Ball in New York on December 13.
We love that she chose something risky with a masculine flair, and carried her usual I-G-G-Y confidence, but the red carpet almost swallowed her whole in this head-to-toe tone. The bold orange could’ve worked better in a piece which showed more skin, like a mini or midi dress revealing a bit of leg, as well as switching up the shoe colour to lessen the load.
Thankfully, she did break things up with gold-zipper detailing around the blazer, a black high-neck crop, and finer details like metallic nails and shimmering green eyeshadow. We’re not sure if it was enough to save the look, and although the coiffed ponytail is Iggy to a T, we think a more polished do might’ve worked better for such an in-your-face and tricky outfit.
Nikki Reed stepped out for Rihanna’s First Annual Diamond Ball Benefitting the Clara Lionel Foundation at Beverly Hills’ The Vineyard on Thursday, December 11, in a revealing sheer-mesh and lace dress by Australian label Shona Joy.

The 26-year-old opted for The Desired Cocktail Midi Dress ($420), featuring Shona Joy’s exclusively designed lace with sheer panels, plus a plunging neckline and spaghetti straps, taking the piece’s sex appeal right off the richter scale.
She styled the LBD safely with black pointed-toe heels and a sizeable envelope clutch, as well as fine-gold and diamond rings and jagged drop earrings. The actress brought it all together with side-swept waves, dark eyelids and navy-blue nail polish, bringing an understated elegance to an otherwise seductive look.

Stuart Weitzman’s tapped Gisele Bündchen yet again to front its Spring 2015 campaign and as expected, the results are stunning. The model poses topless for the label, pictured sitting down in a pair of trousers and strappy sandals, hugging her knees to her chest to cover her lady parts.
It seems Ms. Gisele simply can’t keep her top on when it comes to Stuart Weitzman! Last time around, she eschewed both a shirt and pants (though never both at the same time) for the campaign images, so it is only appropriate that she would ditch the blouse this time around. And when you’re sporting such fabulous shoes, is there really any need to be completely clothed? No. the answer is no. The campaign, shot by Mario Testino, is in black and white, but is no less hauntingly gorgeous.
Is this campaign more beautiful than the last? It’s hard to tell. But one thing’s for sure: Ms. Bündchen is stunning, even in pants that don’t fit her.

Which are the most popular beauty brands on social media? WWD has a list of all the top companies that folks have been talking about on the Internet. MAC took the top spot for “earned media value” at $110,576,016. This comes as little surprise as the brand puts out numerous collections per year, giving us all something to talk about. Apparently, much of the buzz came as a result of its collaboration with Rihanna.
NARS and Maybelline followed at $71,485,358 and $62,814,416 respectively. L’Oréal, Urban Decay, Too Faced, Revlon and Rimmel London rounded out the top 10, and Smashbox and Estée Lauder finished in the 19th and 20th spots. We have a feeling Estée Lauder could be in for a jump on social media mentions, now that it has named Kendall Jenner as a brand ambassador. If anything can get folks talking on social media, it’s the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
Indie labels got some love, too. Hourglass, Anastasia Beverly Hills, BECCA, Charlotte Tilbury and Julep were the top five most talked about, so keep your cat-eyes on them in 2015.
