You’re not the only one who has been working out extra hard to get in shape for summer, if the fine forms on display at last night’s BET Awards are anything to go by. From Ciara’s smoking hot Saint Laurent ensemble, to Nicki Minaj‘s low-cut Roberto Cavalli (and don’t even get us started on Meagan Good) there was a lot of skin on display–and a lot of style.

Her four inch Louboutins prevented her from doing any tumbling passes down the runway, but Gabby Douglas still drew the biggest cheers at last night’s Heart Truth Red Dress runway show.
I spied Douglas’s megawatt smile in the backstage pre-show chaos and grabbed a few minutes with her while she getting her nails painted. Punctuating her speech with “Oh my gosh”-es and excited giggles, she told me her thoughts on nail art, Ben Affleck, and dismissing that whole Olympics hair controversy once and for all.

Gymnasts Gabby Douglas and Nastia Liukin walked (they didn’t handspring, sadly), as did Kendall and Kyle Jenner (preceded on the runway by mom Kris), and gorgeous Aussie snowboarder Torah Bright.

Last night Glamour magazine celebrated their annual Women of the Year Awards at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall. The evening honored courageous women and celebrities like Jenna Lyons, Missy Franklin, and Selena Gomez for their charity and progressive leadership. It was full of surprises too.
Rihanna debuted a new ‘do, Taylor Swift ditched her princess dresses for a white suit (good move Tay!), Rita Ora and Nicki Minaj wore dueling cat suits, Amber Rose proudly displayed her baby bump, Miley Cyrus paired her Pucci with a bleach blond mohawk, and Gabby Douglas stepped out of her leotard and into some serious sequins.
The Olympics may be over, but that doesn’t mean that the Team USA gymnasts have been forgotten–especially the girl with the megawatt smile, Gabby Douglas. We heard last week that Douglas was being shot for Essence and that celeb hair stylist Ted Gibson was going to start tending to the Olympian’s controversial locks. And now Read more →
Since Gabby Douglas returned from the Games with gold around her neck, you can be sure she’ll be appearing in countless mags (we hear she’s being shot for Essence in the near future). So the pint-size Olympian has enlisted celeb stylist Ted Gibson, the Daily Beast is reporting. Gibson is responsible for cutting the coifs Read more →
Last night, Gabby Douglas and Michelle Obama shared a couch on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Needless to say, amazingness ensued.
Gabby Douglas’ Gymnastics Hairgate: Some mean people lashed out at gold medal winning and history-making gymnast Gabby Douglas over social media because of perceived problems with her hair. We chatted with Gabby’s mom, who had a thing or two to say to Gabby’s detractors. Then we took a look at why black athletes–and their hair–just Read more →
Ten years ago, when Gabrielle (Gabby) Douglas started training to realize her dream of becoming an Olympic gold medalist, chances are she was focusing more on nailing her gymnastics floor routine than conjuring up a beauty routine that would earn her a perfect ten (yeah, yeah, we know the scoring is different now–you get the Read more →
