According to Us Magazine – Ryan Seacrest was bit by a shark!
So much for a relaxing trip to the beach. See more photos of stars on the beach. On his KIIS-FM radio show Monday, Ryan Seacrest said he decided to take a dip in the ocean over the weekend when, he said, “I was bit by a shark!”Alas, the American Idol co-host, 33, wasn’t hurt too badly, as he still went on the air to blab about it.But he’s bitter.Asked by his radio co-host if anyone else got bit, Seacrest lamented: “No, just me, of course! There were like 1,000 people in the ocean, and I get bit by the shark!”
Thank goodness is wasn’t “Ryan Secrest OUT!”

When New York Magazine needed to recreate the appearance of shoes on actual feet in the April 21st issue, using just makeup, they went to Temptu where the amazing body art artists John Maurad and Jenai Chin created airbrushing with Temptu Paints for the article titled “You Walk Wrong“, written by Adam Sternbergh.
Temptu; a New York City-based company specializes in airbrush make-up, temporary tattoos, body art and special effects makeup. The company does extensive work for Hollywood movies, TV shows, commercials, and the fashion industry. The shoes you see pictured look incredibly realistic and its really impressive that there is no PhotoShop work involved here. The shoe, the stilettos and the Adidas sneakers you see in the gallery below are all trompel’oeil paintings applied directly to the feet. A traditional men’s wing tip, a pair of Christian Louboutin heels (complete with the signature red bottom) and an old-school style of an Adidas Gazelle are so incredibly real looking it’s hard to believe that you are looking at bare feet.

Can’t help it, even though I’m not a tween or a teen, I just love Miley Cyrus.  It’s so refreshing to see a teen be a regular teenager…. and with that in mind I was surprised and happy to see her in a cute (age appropriate) modest Retro Swimsuit which is so in style right now!

As you can see Miss Cyrus wore a flirty yellow and orange retro-style swimsuit as she splashed in the waves with a few gal pals, making the most of the beautiful Malibu surroundings.         (source)

“You Go Girl!”

From Jessica Alba (photoshoot from GQ) to Eva Longoria; the “monokini” – a cutout one-piece swimsuit that has the sexiness of the bikini, but leaves a little more to the imagination has made a huge comeback. There are many different versions and styles of it; everything from your basic cut out to designer glam that you could wear by the pool with heels. So which would you prefer, a teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini or are you taking the switch to the one piece monokini? We want to know : )

Over the July 4th weekend the cute and fun couple Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy were seen strolling hand in hand down a beach in Malibu, California. It started out with Carrey, 46, wearing a normal pair of trunks that were beige knee-length board shorts. However the two of them then disappeared into their beach hut and re-emerged minutes later with McCarthy in an ankle-length strapless blue dress and Carrey sporting her fetching halterneck swimsuit. In scenes reminiscent of the film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, he wandered down the beach in his “mankini”, to the amazement of onlookers.

What a pair : ) So who do you think looks better … McCarthy or Carrey?
