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.
What exactly does a modern-day, self-described feminist look like? An award-winning, media-dominating actress who's unafraid to speak up. In other words, Claire Danes, who told US Glamour, "I am a feminist. And I'm so glad that Lena Dunham exists, because she is one too, and she's quite vocal about it." Beyoncé also dropped the f-word in a recent interview, explaining that while she's not a big fan of labels, she does consider herself a modern feminist. And other famous women have been even more unabashed about declaring themselves feminists, like Miley Cyrus, who says she considers herself to be one of the biggest feminists in the world.
Not all of these stars' celebrity peers are so eager to call themselves feminists, though. Lady Gaga infamously said awhile back, "I'm not a feminist. I hail men; I love men," as if loving men and advocating political, social and economic equality for women were mutually exclusive. But famous feminists do have some company. Read through for quotes from famous women who are proud feminists.
It's no wonder Miley Cyrus has been named one of Barbara Walters's Most Fascinating People of 2013. From dramatic 'dos to jaw-dropping performances, Miley Cyrus's transition from sweet Disney darling to va-va-vixen has been a bit rocky — but we're not here to judge. Although the star has had her share of controversy, Cyrus has taken everything in stylish stride.

Whether you love it or hate it, Miley's stand-out style always gets people talking — and any publicity is good publicity, right?

When it comes to celebrities wanting to debut their new hairstyles, a red carpet just isn't good enough for some stars. So what better way to show the world their new 'do than on Instagram? Ahead, we've rounded up some of the stars who have shown off their new cuts and colours on social media.
Joe Jonas gets incredibly honest about his time in the Disney machine in a new story with Vulture. The former Jonas Brothers star opens up about his relationships with famous women, including Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene, his experiments with drugs, and his struggles with his brothers leading up to the Jonas Brothers breaking up earlier this year. Read on for the most revealing and honest selections from Joe's interview.
- On dating Demi Lovato: "I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn't happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn't express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect."
- His firsthand experience of Demi's 2010 breakdown in South America: "Things kept building up, and Demi ended up punching a girl in the face on a plane, because she thought the girl was blaming her for something. Everybody gasped, and the girl just started bleeding. That's when her team and her family told her, 'You need to go into rehab.' I remember being in South America, and fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that we kicked her off the 2010 tour, and they just hated on us for it."
- On his date with a fan: "I remember I invited a fan to a movie, and we just made out the entire time. I don't even remember what the movie was about. I must have been 16 or so. Afterward, I was kind of freaking out, because I thought she'd go public and the whole world would find out. Luckily, she never did, I think because she assumed there'd be another meet-up down the road."
- On those infamous promise rings: "We explained that we had made these promises to ourselves when we were younger. A few months later, it comes out that we're in some cult and that we're these little staged Mickey Mouse kids. People were coming up to us, saying, 'Thank you so much, I'm waiting because you guys are, too!' And we just thought, No! That's not what we're about."
There were no teddy bears in sight for Miley Cyrus' performance at the American Music Awards, but she still managed to keep the animal kingdom involved. She gave an impressive performance of "Wrecking Ball," but the giant kitten projected behind her pretty much stole the show by lip-syncing along. Not only did the kitty start crying during the song's emotional climax, but he (she?) also paid homage to Miley at the very end. As is always the case with Miley, this is some must-watch weirdness.
The American Music Awards are underway in LA with Katy Perry already kicking off the red carpet in a polka dot gown. The event is sure to be full of fun with performances by birthday girl Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and more while Taylor Swift, Robin Thicke and One Direction are just a few of the many nominees. Keep checking back as more stars step out for the big musical show.
Fresh from celebrating her 21st birthday, Miley Cyrus walked the red carpet at the AMAs in LA today. Surprisingly, she was covered up in a white suit with safety pin details for the event and skipped sticking out her tongue while posing for photos. While she isn't up for any awards, Miley will be hitting the stage to perform — and if her recent antics at the MTV VMAs and EMAs are any indication, we should be in for a real treat.
It was a love- and friendship-filled week on Instagram, with many of our most-watched stars sharing personal snaps that put a smile on our faces. Delta Goodrem felt the love after a birthday lunch in Manly, Sydney, Miranda Kerr made buddies with Miley Cyrus (sans eyebrows), and Renee Bargh met her "number one" celebrity, Pharrell Williams — the lucky, lucky girl. As for jetsetting stars, they were busy too: Sam Worthington shared a gorgeous photo of his girlfriend Lara Bingle in Amsterdam, Candice Swanepoel had her enviable figure on display in St Barths, and Nicole Richie took fringing to a whole new level while holidaying in Paris. We also really want Jennifer Hawkins' amazing Vionnet heels, and Taylor Tomasi Hill's flexibility. . . but for now, we'll just be content looking at both. Click through to do the same!
On Haters Hating and Being Punk Rock
"I don't care what the media says because I don't Google myself, so I don't know what they say, and I don't care because it's a bunch of people that maybe one time in their life, they dreamt about being a journalist, and then they became what they are." "Even people who want to hate on me, they can’t even shut down the fact that I'm literally what everyone is talking about. I don't want to say that I'm on top right now — I feel like I'm kind of an underdog in a cool way. It's almost punk rock to like me, because it's not the right thing to do."
On Her Racy VMAs Performance
"When people started complaining about the awards show, I was like, 'Have you never seen the f*cking video?' And what if I hadn't done that performance? The VMAs would have been bad. They would have been missing something. The show was kind of making fun of how serious the pop industry is." "No one is talking about the man behind the ass. It was a lot of 'Miley twerks on Robin Thicke,' but never, 'Robin Thicke grinds up on Miley.' They're only talking about the one that bent over. So, obviously there's a double standard." "Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I'll probably never do that sh*t again."
On Mo' Money, Mo' Problems
"When I was growing up, I didn't even notice that I started making all this money. There's something about new money that makes people change. But I never did not have [money]. So, when I got it, I didn't become obsessed with having it."
On Kanye West
"Kanye is the sh*t. I kind of have a good relationship with him now. It's good to have someone you can call and be like, 'Yo, do you think I should wear this?' 'Do you think I should go in the studio with this guy?' 'Do you think this is cool?' That's what homies are supposed to do."
"Like, society wants to shut me down."
