Happy New Year!

Happy new year to everyone who has supported my blog and help make this a success. Thank you so much. Over 7000 visitors and its been less than a year... thank you guys! I just wanted to say that I hope next year is a better year for everyone. 2007 put me through hell and back and I can't believe I've made it to the end. I've had my ups and downs and I've discovered things and felt things that I never thought I would. I've met some very special people this year and I think I'm gonna know them for the rest of my life. Its been a tough year and I especially want to thank my two best friends, Shamini and Mahey, for supporting me through everything. I can't even remember life without you guys. I'll stop rambling on now. Thank you and happy new year! Have a good one! XD

Girls About Town '07

Victoria Beckham, Girl About Town
The Posh Party Girl
She's a legend in the UK, but now Victoria Beckham is ready to conquer America. Since Beckham and her soccer star husband, David, officially arrived in Hollywood—with sons Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 4, and Cruz, 2, in tow—they've been the toast of the social scene and caused a media frenzy from the Sunset Strip to the local Toys 'R Us. What does she think of coming to America? "I'm just hoping people do get it and don't truly think that I do sunbathe in high heels and a bikini and a full face of makeup", she told Parade magazine. One thing is for sure, she's already spicing things up.

The Glam Globetrotter
The Glam Globetrotter
Katie Holmes got her first taste of fame playing the fresh faced Joey Potter on the series, Dawson's Creek. Since then she's gone on to star in blockbusters like Batman Begins and win applause from critics in indie hits like Pieces of April. Career success plus a high profile marriage, A-list friends and an incredible sense of style make Katie one woman I can't stop watching.

The Movie Star Mom
The Movie Star Mum
A wardrobe malfunction delayed Jennifer Garner's arrival at the UK premiere of The Kingdom, but she still looked picture perfect by the time she hit the red carpet. "The zipper split - I had people sewing from the bottom, people sewing from the top!" a calm and cool Garner explained of the emergency maneuvers required to fix her stunning Temperley London gown. The multi-tasking Garner balances her work on the stage and screen and a laid-back home life - not to mention the occasional fashion emergency - with husband Ben Affleck and daughter Violet like a true Tinseltown pro.

The California Girl
The California Girl
The OC might be off the air, but Mischa Barton still attracts plenty of fashion fans. The willowy beauty inspires with her ultra-hip sense of style and conjurs visions of iconic '70s rocker chicks. The ultra-exclusive Soho House set up shop in the hills above the Sunset Strip for its annual Oscar-time hideaway, featuring swank dinner parties, designer label giveaways and serious pampering. Mischa was a regular at the super-exclusive venue, attending events three nights in a row. At the London party, she mingled with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette and Ioan Gruffud.

The Triple Threat
The Triple Threat
Jennifer Lopez never forgets where she came from. Her resume lists credits from music, movies, fashion and more and even with a baby on the way she shows no signs of slowing down. Lopez goes from the red carpet in Hollywood to fashion week in New York City and even pays an occasional visit back to the block. Looking like she was straight off a runway, Jennifer Lopez stormed the red carpet at the Conde Nast Fashion Rocks show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Lopez - looking fierce in a Studio 54-inspired dress by Roberto Cavalli - joined style-setting stars like Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie and Fergie for the annual celebration of rock and style.

The Girl Next Door
The Girl Next Door
Perhaps a better way to describe Jessica Simpson is the blonde bombshell next door. She's got enviable curves and a sweet voice, but Simpson has also shown us her smarts, launching a successful line of shoes, bags and other accessories. Though she kept her own body covered, Jessica Simpson showed off her new swimwear collection on a pack of models during Mercedes Benz Miami Swim Fashion Week in July.

The Hottest Housewife
The Hottest Housewife

Eva Longoria had one heck of a year. From a hit TV show to a fairytale wedding, this housewife is anything but desperate. And she's got a drool-worthy wardrobe to boot. In November, Longoria took her act on the road to Las Vegas, where she gave a special performance at the Hot Tamales Live! comedy show at Caesars Palace. Afterwards she headed to Pure nightclub, where she stormed the DJ booth and whipped the revelers into a frenzy.

It Takes Two

Paris Hilton turns heads on Sunday after partying with Kevin Federline at Pure Nightclub in Las Vegas. In town to host separate New Year's Eve parties, the unlikely duo ran into each other at the hotspot on two consecutive evenings.

Engaged Fergie Says 'I'm Thrilled'

Engaged Fergie Says, 'I'm Thrilled' | Fergie, Josh Duhamel
Perhaps it's time to call her Lady Luck instead of The Duchess. Fergie, whose engagement to Las Vegas sex symbol Josh Duhamel was confirmed Wednesday, is sure feeling that way. "I feel like the luckiest girl in the world", the Black Eyed Peas singer, 32, said Saturday night after a performance at Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. "I'm thrilled". During her two-hour show, Fergie gave an adoring shout-out before she performed "All That I Got". "This song is about loving someone for their inner beauty", she told the crowd as her diamond sparkled. "I hope you all have someone like that in your lives. I do". News of the couple's engagement – they have been an item for three years – broke on Christmas Day. Yet when it comes to the specifics of how the question was popped, the "Big Girls Don't Cry" vocalist's lips are sealed. "I'm not giving any details. I think the fine points are sacred", Fergie explained. "It's just important to us". Apparently big girls don't dish, either. Then again, Fergie told PEOPLE, keeping quiet is a new challenge. "It's hard for me because I have a big mouth", she said with a laugh. What she did divulge are her plans for the New Year. "In 2008, I just want to have a balance", she said. "I've been touring for about four-and-a-half years straight. So for me, I love when I get to go home now and see my dogs". And not just them. "It's important for me to see more of my family, see more of my sister, my mom and dad", she added.

Rind Around

RING AROUND photo | Fergie
Fergie Fergs modelled her prized new accessory – no, not her scarf! - showing off her new engagement ring bling while stepping out in Brentwood, California yesterday afternoon but didn't have a huge grin on her face. We haven't heard many details yet about the proposal or their wedding plans, but hopefully we will soon enough. Josh Duhamel and Fergie make up one of my favourite couples in Hollywood these days since they always seem to have fun (and lots of laughs) together. I'm sure their wedding, whenever they choose to walk down the aisle, will be anything but ordinary. :D

Paris Hilton's Inheritance Goes To Charity

 photo |
Paris Hilton's future bank account has just taken an enormous hit – on account of her grandfather. Barron Hilton, the 80-year-old son of the founder of the worldwide hotel chain that carries the family name, has earmarked 97 percent of his vast fortune – nearly $2.3 billion – to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, to help the homeless with housing, find safe water in developing countries and assist other good causes around the world, it has been announced.

To Barron's heirs – who include Paris – will go the remaining three percent: some $69 million, which is said to be taxable. According to calculations by New York's Daily News, Paris, who once foresaw a $100 million inheritance, is now likely looking at $5 million. In a statement, Barron Hilton said that his father, Conrad, had set the example and bequeathed 97 percent of his money to the charitable foundation, which the elder Hilton founded in 1944, "and I am proud to follow my father's example". Hilton has eight children and numerous grandchildren in addition to the 26-year-old celebrated Beverly Hills socialite.

On My Radar: Hervé Léger Returns
Hervé Léger
is one of the most coveted brands out there right now and we're not going to stop seeing it anytime soon. Hervé Léger by Max Azria will stage its first fashion show since the mid-'90s on Sunday 3rd February 08 during New York Fashion Week. This will mark a historic day in fashion: the first time Hervé Léger will be showing in the U.S (the collection was originally shown in Paris). It will also be the first time that an American designer, via the French-Tunisian Max Azria (right), will be producing three major fashion shows for three different collections during New York Fashion Week. So many record-breaking events — I can't wait!

Fergie And Josh Got Engaged!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
According to TMZ, Josh Duhamel asked his longtime girlfriend Fergie to marry him! Her rep confirmed the great news. Oh, yay... I'm so happy for them. Fergie recently described she and Josh as "practically married" and now I guess they're actually going to be. I hope that we hear more about how he popped the question soon (and, of course, get to see the ring!), but until then what a fun way to finish up the year. I love these two together. Congratulations to Fergie Ferg and Josh!

It's a shocking statstic but the U.K is one of the few places in the world where the number of people contracting HIV and AIDS is still rising. So, come February H&M and Katherine Hamnett along with some of their very special friends will launch a collection designed to raise awareness and money for AIDS projects around the world.

I love that H&M is providing a fashionable and easy way for young people all over the world to get involved in this worthy cause", says Rihanna.
"It’s a collection that’s rich in colour, with considerable commitment going into every garment. The artists have created personal prints with a strong sense of style", says
H&M’s head of design Margareta van den Bosch of the collection. And with prices starting at just £7.99, everyone will have a chance to bag a celebrity designer pieces and help a very worthwhile cause. Just the kind of shopping I like!
