Trends may come and go, but real classic beauty will never fade — and that's why we'll never, ever tire of seeing creamy nude lips on the mouths of our favourite celebrities. The thing about "nude" is that the colour actually encompasses hundreds of different shades. Just like everyone in the world has slightly different skin colours, we all also present a slightly different colour when we leave our lips bare or coat them with a matching lipstick. Jessica Alba, for example — her nude is a light berry shade, while Diane Kruger's natural colour is a pale and creamy shade. Miranda Kerr has a hint of pale pink to her lips, while Jennifer Hawkins has the lightest berry undertone. Whichever look you're going for, you can take inspiration from the celebrities in this gallery. Sure, they like their bright pinks and oranges, too — but paring things back never looked so good.
Angelina Jolie visited a bookstore in Sydney with her kids on Friday. The group, which included Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox, stuck together, holding hands during the outing. The family is here in Australia while Angelina works on her latest directorial project, Unbroken. She was spotted smiling on set earlier in the day but switched gears to family time, much like she did when she stepped out with twins Knox and Vivienne last week.
Angelina may have a lot to juggle, but she isn't forgetting about her fiancé, Brad Pitt. His big 50th birthday is coming up this month, and rumours suggest that Angelina has gone all-out to celebrate by buying him a heart-shaped island near New York.
Angelina has been filming in Australia over the past few months and was most recently spotted shooting a street scene in Sydney back in November. On Monday, Angelina Jolie battled the heat while filming scenes in a fake POW camp on Cockatoo Island. She has also made time for her children, who have accompanied her down under, and even took her twins, Knox and Vivienne, out to lunch last weekend.

We knew Prince William would be a perfectly polite host, but it was only this week that the world learned of his karaoke skills, and perhaps his secret desires of being a rock star. At the Winter Whites Gala in London, the prince joined Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi for an acoustic performance of Bon Jovi’s hit “Livin’ on a Prayer” that went viral. The encounter topped off a massive week for Taylor, who had huge success at the American Music Awards on Monday — she took home four honours, including the event’s top prize for Artist of the Year, the third time she’s won it. Another big talking point at the AMAs was Katy Perry’s opening performance of “Unconditionally,” or more specifically her Geisha-inspired stage costume, which some critics thought was on the racist side.
On a lighter note, Australia welcomed the cast of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues for a star-studded Sydney premiere, where Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner broke out an a cappella performance of “Afternoon Delight.” And over in Mexico, Hollywood lovebirds Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson got a head start on their Thanksgiving celebrations by lounging poolside at their resort.

Angelina Jolie took a break from work on Saturday to spend time with her twins, Knox and Vivienne, in Sydney. Angie and her family are currently spending time in Australia while she works on her latest directorial effort, Unbroken.

She took a break from working Down Under earlier this month to attend the Governors Awards in LA with Brad Pitt and Maddox. Angie was at the awards to received an honorary Oscar for her philanthropic work. Of course, Angie already has an Oscar for her acting work, having received the trophy in 2000 for best supporting actress for her work in Girl, Interrupted.

Angelina Jolie returned to the daily grind in Australia yesterday when she shot a scene for her upcoming directorial project, Unbroken, in the Sydney CBD. She has been spending the past few months Down Under while working on her new film, although she took a short trip to LA over the weekend to accept the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' fifth annual Governors Awards last Saturday. Angie had special support at the Governors Awards as she was joined on the red carpet by Brad Pitt, who has been away filming Fury in England over the past few weeks, and her eldest son, Maddox.
While Angie was dressed in her trademark all-black outfit during her time on set, one of her shiny accessories popped up back on her left hand — her engagement ring from Brad. During her most recent public appearances, Angie had opted to switch the ring for a simple band, but it looks as if the massive bling is back. She also wore the ring when she attended the Governors Awards last Saturday.
Was there a dry eye at the Hollywood & Highland Center Saturday after Angelina Jolie accepted an honorary Oscar for her humanitarian work? With Brad Pitt and their oldest son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, in attendance, Angelina lovingly thanked her family for inspiring her. Angelina had particularly touching words for her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand. Today, we take you inside Angelina's big night and look forward to what's next for her on the big screen.
Angelina Jolie accepted a special honour on Saturday, when she became the youngest person to ever receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' fifth annual Governors Awards in LA. The Oscar statuette was presented to acknowledge Angelina's achievements in activism, including her work for the United Nations and her film projects related to humanitarian issues: A Mighty Heart and In the Land of Blood and Honey. She was joined by Brad Pitt on the red carpet, along with their son Maddox, and she gave a sweet shout out to her family during her acceptance speech. "My family, my love, your love and support make everything possible," she said. "Mad, and your brothers and sisters, there is no greater honour than being your mum."
Last year's winner was Oprah Winfrey, and other past recipients include Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman. Acknowledging the honour ahead of time, Angelina told Associated Press, "Paul Newman has been a hero of mine since I was a little girl. Receiving the Hersholt award makes me feel like I am on the right path but also reminds me I have more to do." This isn't the first time Angelina has been recognised by the Academy, as she won the Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in Girl, Interrupted back in 2000.
Also honoured at the private event were Steve Martin, Angela Lansbury, and Italian costume designer Piero Tosi, who each received honorary awards for outstanding contributions to film. The untelevised black-tie dinner brought out several big names in entertainment, including Jennifer Garner, Jake Gyllenhaal and Matthew McConaughey. Take a look at all the pictures from the Governors Awards.
