The boys of One Direction have joined forces with Office Depot for the “1D + OD Together Against Bullying” campaign. The partnership includes a collection of five nail polishes, each color representing a member of the boy band.
Michael Fassbender shows off his toned physique on the cover of the Indie Issue of The Hollywood Reporter, and in the accompanying interview, he discusses his critically acclaimed movie “Shame,” the intimate nature of the film shoot and his love of skydiving.
Fassbender bares all in “Shame” — a move he didn’t even have time to feel self-conscious about. “We moved very fast,” he explained. “We shot it in 25 days, so I kind of had to get over it and get on with it.” Fassbender also met with recovering sex addicts to inform his portrayal of Brandon in the flick. “One man had the same intimacy issues that Brandon had, so it was very helpful to me, and I was very grateful that he opened up.”
Michael Fassbender also revealed that after shooting and promoting six movies in 20 months, he escaped to Oahu to go skydiving. “It was the most amazing rush,” he said. “It’s a crazy feeling to jump out of an airplane and land on the ground.”

“I don’t want to paint our relationship like we met and it’s been happy family fantastic-ness ever since,” cautions Harris. “What defines a relationship is the work that’s involved to maintain it, and it’s constantly changing. Sometimes I’m deeply in love with David and head-over-heels, and sometimes I question whether it’s going to work out and is meant to be. It’s like a business relationship, as well as a personal one; we have a business together and that’s maintaining our love for one another.”
Burtka expressed similar sentiments in his portion of the profile. “We’re not trying to pretend that we’re perfect,” he said. “We’re just trying — in a good, positive, loving way — to live our lives.”

Country crooner Taylor Swift has landed the cover of the February 2012 issue of Vogue. It’s Swift’s first cover for the venerated fashion mag, and she posed for legendary photographer Mario Testino in wild patterns and prints from Rodarte.
Swift’s editorial is called “The Single Life,” so it’s no surprise that she dishes on her love life. “I got nothing going on,” she confessed. “I just don’t really feel like dating. I really have this great life right now, and I’m not sad and I’m not crying this Christmas, so I am really stoked about that.”
Taylor Swift also talks about what freaks her out: “When is the other shoe going to drop? I am so happy right now. So I am always living in fear. This can’t be real, right? This can’t really be my life.”

For most women, go-to styles when we want to get noticed are low-cut necklines and short skirts. But there’s something unexpected, mysterious, and provocative about showing skin in an unconventional place. What body part is having a moment right now? The back.
The back has historically been considered an area of sensuality and vulnerability. The curves of the female back have long been the subject of paintings intended to communicate sensuality without being overtly sexual. Backless, or embellished-backed garments have the same effect. …Read More
“Twilight” star Ashley Greene is ethereal in the first ads from the DKNY Spring 2012 campaign. The actress poses atop a New York City skyscraper in denim, diaphanous dresses and plenty of patterns for famed fashion photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
“I’ve always been a fan of the brand, so I think it’s a really organic fit for me,” Greene told Teen Vogue. “I was very flattered that they asked me to jump on board.”

Zooey Deschanel plays up her quirky, “adorkable” persona for the February 2012 issue of Allure magazine. Although nearly everyone loves the “New Girl” star now, she revealed that she was bullied as a youngster. “Girls spit in my face — people were so mean to me, I’d cry every day,” she recounted.
Deschanel also discussed her body image, especially as her figure compares to other Hollywood actresses. “Some people around me, they’re like 89 pounds,” she said. “I’m not going to say I’m a big girl. I’m a very small person, but I’m a healthy weight. That might be a little weird for Hollywood.”
