If you didn't know who Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was before she topped the Maxim Hot 100 list, you definitely do now. The British actress-model (for Victoria's Secret no less!) stars in the upcoming "Transformers" flick (in lieu of No. 13 hottie Megan Fox) and has been, unsurprisingly, a major Google trend all morning. While men the world over have been ogling her bountiful portfolio of swimsuit pics (who are we kidding, we have been too), we've got some news for you. Rosie also looks hot FULLY clothed (shocking, we know). To prove our point, we've pulled five of her best looks below. So check 'em out and prepare for hotness overload.
Likely just hours before being crowned the HOTTEST WOMAN ON THE PLANET, Rosie hit the streets of New York looking très chic in a loose white blouse and dark trousers, while keeping her eyes fixated on her phone (we'd like to think she was checking out her reflection because that's what you do when you're THAT good looking). Notice how her hair is oh-so perfectly billowing in the wind. Most girls need fans and multiple hairstylists to achieve that effect, but clearly the same rules don't apply to Maxim's reigning beauty.
After months of speculation and headlines, today the world found out just who Kate Middleton had picked as her royal wedding dress designer. Kate looked sleek and sophisticated in an Alexander McQueen gown—designed by Sarah Burton, the label's creative director—when she married Prince William in Westminster Abbey.
An official statement from the royal family sums up why Kate chose the forward-thinking, U.K.-based fashion house, crediting it for combining "tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterizes ... McQueen's work." Sarah joined Alexander McQueen in 1997 and took over the brand's designing duties in 2010, after McQueen's unexpected death in February.
The Duchess of Cambridge joins a long list of celebrities who have donned McQueen for important public events. Here are some of our favorites:
In case you hadn't heard, Prince William and Kate Middleton got married today—an event of such monumental importance that nothing else, not even the end of the world, could distract us from covering its every glorious detail with painstaking care. The elaborate decor! The ancient rituals! The procession of increasingly-ornate hats on the heads of obscure noblepersons! Kate's arrival at Westminster Abbey on an actual unicorn!
...Well, okay, we're just making up those details, since we were not invited to the royal wedding. (Our invitation must have got lost in the mail.) But we're not bitter—and neither are the celebs who we rounded up to ask what they'd like to give to the royal couple on their big day.
Ke$ha mused, "I haven't met them, so it would be kind of awkward." But she got over her trepidation pretty fast, as she said, "I think I'd paint them something!" (YES! Because every married couple needs a random piece of art that's absolutely covered in glitter.)
Emma Watson (a.k.a. Hermione Granger) is dropping out school.
Before you die of shock, rest assured that it's not a permanent academic leave. Emma is just leaving Brown University to pursue coursework not offered there, according to her rep (via the New York Times). Despite insistence from Emma's camp that the impending transfer (she's set to enroll elsewhere in the fall) is purely the result of a less-than-perfect academic fit, rumors are swirling that Emma was bullied out of the Ivy League school. (We really hope that's not the case!) Whatever the reason, we've conjured up five schools we think would be perfectly magical fits for the 21-year-old actress.
Not that taking off his shirt just to take off his shirt isn't reason enough, but Robert Pattinson is donating the proceeds from an auctioned-off autographed T-shirt to a good cause.
RPattz is the latest celeb to join the slew of stars doing their part for Japanese tsunami relief. The shirt will be auctioned off through the Yoshiki Foundation. His "Water For Elephants" co-star Reese Witherspoon also donated a signed T to the foundation.
For those unfamiliar with the Yoshiki Foundation, it was started by Yoshiki, a member of the Japanese rock band X Japan. He started the foundation in 2010 to give back to the community.
Rumors connecting "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart and a certain fairest of them all (no, we're not talking about Robert Pattinson), have been circulating for months, but after a "Snow White and the Huntsman" producer confirmed via his Twitter page that Kristen was in final negotiations for the titular lead, it seems all but certain she'll face-off against evil Queen Grimhilde.
One Hollywood heavyweight throwing her support behind Kristen is her former "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke. E! Online spoke to the "Red Riding Hood" helmer, who said the role was a princessly fit for the 20-year-old actress. "I love it," Catherine gushed. "She's going to be a bad ass, learning how to hunt. That is perfect for Kristen! She's a kick-ass chick. She's going to do good in that."
Some endorsement, right? If KStew's loyal fan base gets half as excited about this project as Catherine seems to be, we could have a mega-blockbuster on our hands. But that raises an important question: Does Kristen have your support for Snow White? Vote in our poll after the jump!
Emma Watson is finally putting to rest those pesky rumors that she'd give up acting once she graduated from Hogwarts. The 20-year-old announced today that she'd actually be taking a break from college to focus on her career.
"As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I've had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible," she wrote on her website. "I've decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects. I will still be working towards my degree... it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought : )"
Sam Trammell might play a tormented, shape-shifting, down-on-his-luck sadsack on HBO's "True Blood," but in real life, the actor's got plenty to smile about. People reported today that Sam and his girlfriend, actress Missy Yager, are expecting twins...well, sometime in the next nine months, anyway. (The announcement came without any mention of a due date).
Sam and Missy (who's appeared on "Mad Men" and "My Own Worst Enemy") met as stage actors in New York City and have been together eight years; the currently incubating babies are their first kids together. Happy news! Although we admit to being a little disappointed that, unlike Sam's on-screen family members, these babies will probably not have the ability to spontaneously transform themselves into Jack Russell terriers.
...Or WILL they?! Take a wild guess in the comments and on Twitter!

Miley Cyrus is no longer leading a double life on the small screen, but that doesn’t mean she’s using her new freedom to bask in the sun and party in the U.S.A. This Saturday the former "Hannah Montana" star will make her hosting debut on "Saturday Night Live," and from the episode's teasers, it looks like we'll get to see how Miley’s impression of herself stacks up against Vanessa Bayer’s. The showdown should be...pretty cool!
As Miley prepares to take the Studio 8H stage, we got to wondering what her former "Hannah Montana" co-stars are up to, now that the curtain has been drawn on the Disney series. Keep reading after the jump to find out!
What should have been an awesome night for Alex Pettyfer turned into a bit of an ordeal for the "Beastly" star. On the night of the film's L.A. premiere, there was a small fire at the Brit's home.
"There was an electrical fire in the garage while no one was home. The house was not burned. No one was hurt," a rep for his ex and "I Am Number Four" co-star, Dianna Agron, told "Entertainment Tonight." The actor was reportedly late to the premiere, though it apparently had nothing to do with the fire.
