Sports Illustrated's Behind-the-Scenes Snapshots and Blake Lively's Secret to Perfect Beachy Hair

Rita Hazan's Christine Healey shows us how to recreate Blake Lively's signature beach waves.

 

Here's what everybody's gabbing about:

Even though the last Swimsuit Issue came out in February and the next isn't due for four months, Sports Illustrated has released behind-the-scenes photos from last year's shoot (see one below), presumably to remind us that this institution still exists. It's a little like that friend of yours who insists on celebrating his half-birthday, but much less annoying.

Just one of the BTS pics you'll find from @emrata's 2014 shoot. More here: http://t.co/7lNOCRFyLB pic.twitter.com/gAQk9jHuve

Blake Lively's has been in the spotlight a lot lately, but let's not overlook her divine 'do. As it turns out, it's not that hard to mimic her mane at home. Watch the video above and see how the stylists at Rita Hazan Salon recreate Blake's beachy waves.

On Tuesday evening, Jennifer Hudson arrived at the Turn It Up For Change benefit in New York City wearing a silky shirt-dress deliberately left open in order to showcase her bra (below). It's as if she saw the video for TLC's "Creep," then decided their pajamas weren't showing enough cleavage.

 

Renee Zellweger, who is fully aware of everybody's comments about  told PEOPLE that her new face is the result of her happier, healthier lifestyle and nothing else. And that's possible, we guess. After all, we all remember that time we started eating kale and our eyes eyelids disappeared.

Kate Middleton showed at the 50th Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards at London's Natural History Museum on Tuesday evening. Because of this, we're guessing all the photos of endangered monk seals and snowy owls didn't get as much attention as they deserved.

In an interview with GQ, Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey defended the romantic comedies he made earlier in his career, saying, "These things aren't easy. What's hard is to make them look easy." That said, the actor claimed he made a decision to "un-brand" himself, so don't expect to see "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past II: Raising Spirits" anytime soon.

Kate Hudson, McConaughey co-star from a few of those romantic comedies, attended the American Cinematique's tribute to the actor on Tuesday evening wearing a slinky, shimmery Jenny Packham gown (below). Perhpas she was trying to influence McConaughey's decision to sign on for "Fool's Gold 2: All That Glitters."

According to TMZ, Tori Spelling has been "quarantined like an Ebola patient" at a Los Angeles hospital after falling ill over the past weekend. We wish her a speedy recovery, if only so we can see the reality show she inevitably tries to pitch about this unfortunate incident.

On Tuesday, Gwen Stefani debuted a music video for her latest song, "Baby Don't Lie" (below). But even if you don't care for its aesthetic, we can all probably agree that it would serve as an extremely effective ad for Target's exclusive Lisa Frank TrapperKeepers. 

"Goodfellas" actor Frank Sivero has filed a $100 million lawsuit against FOX, claiming that they borrowed his likeness when they created Louie, a mob henchman character who has appeared on "The Simpsons" for decades. If he's successful, FOX had better pray that Jerry Lewis never finds out about Professor Frink. 

"Two Broke Girls" actress Kat Dennings appeared on Tuesday's episode of "The Ellen Degeneres Show" to essentially gush about Kim Kardashian's butt. "I've never seen an *** like that in my life," she told DeGeneres, basically echoing what we were all thinking the first time we saw "Keeping Up With the Kardashianss.

And finally, IKEA has released a new Halloween-themed commercial that parodies "The Shining" (below). It's supposed to advertize IKEA's extended shopping hours, but all it really does is make us wish we were allowed to ride tricycles through IKEA. (We promise we'll be careful, IKEA!)
