Keep hair sleek and straight by taking Jennifer Aniston’s famous locks as an inspiration.
This look works for women at any age, and is super-easy to achieve if you don’t have time on your hands. Use a few of our holy grail products to create this look – and make it last!
1. Make sure you’re working with freshly washed hair. Pay attention to your ends, and use a deep-cleansing conditioner to lock-in shine and keep frizz away.
2. While hair is still damp, use a de-tangling spray and concentrate the majority towards the ends of your hair. Carefully comb to remove any knots without compromising thick, voluminous hair!
Goldwell Dualsenses Ultra Volume Volumizing Detangler, $19.95
3. Blow-dry hair on a cool temperature since this causes the least amount of damage to your hair. Make sure hair is completely dry, then scrunch the roots with your fingers for extra volume.
4. Use a heat spray and lightly mist hair from root to tip. Choose a formula which isn’t too sticky, as it can leave a greasy residue once hair has been dried.
Lee Stafford Heat Protection Straightening Mist, $16.95
5. For super-straight locks, straightening irons are the easiest way to make this happen. Section your hair starting from top to bottom, and slowly capture the hair into the irons for best results. If you have shorter layers at the front, you may want to straighten them inwards just like Jen!

February 16, 2004
Hollywood’s favourite couple, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have won yet another award. This time the couple have kissed and cuddled their way to victory in a Valentine’s Day Most Romantic Couple poll conducted by Britain’s leading glossy magazine Hello. The pair easily won the polls snaring over 20 per cent of the overall poll to win first place. But following not too far behind with 17% of the votes was the famous Beckham couple with soccer-ace David Beckham and his spicey wife Victoria polling highly to take second place. The ‘Becks’ duo were just in front of Las Vegas star, Canadian Celine Dion and her manager and hubby Rene Angelil. The renowned singer and her husband/manager have been working together for 25 years and been married for the last ten with a little boy born almost two years ago thru IVF. Other celeb couples deemed romantically noteworthy included our very own Mary Donaldson and her spunky prince of Denmark, who came home in fourth place, and yet more Aussie?s invaded the poll with Russell Crowe and his wife Danielle Spencer coming in fifth. Coming in surprisingly low in the sizzling partnership stakes appeal were Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz, who came ninth. Meanwhile, Spanish heart-throb Antonio Banderas and his wife Melanie Griffith had to settle for tenth place.
Bye Bye Meatball
Comedian Adam Sandler, 37 took a serious moment recently to remember his beloved dog who died suddenly. Meatball, who was four years old when he died of a heart attack, appeared in the short film A Day with the Meatball that followed Sandler’s animated feature Eight Crazy Nights in theatres. Meatball, who sported a yarmulke and tuxedo, served as the ring bearer at Sandler’s wedding to Jackie Titone in 2003. Oh too sad!
Tits and Arse Awards

Keira Knightley and Kate Beckinsale have been nominated for an award for the best breasts and bottom. Beckinsale has been nominated by fans for her role in ?Underworld?, while Knightley is up for the honour for her role in Pirates of the Caribbean. While other noteable actresses nominated for the award include Monica Bellucci for The Matrix Revolutions, Jessica Biel for Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Terminator 3 star Kristanna Loken. Even if we think it is degrading to women we can?t disagree with those choices, can we?

Everyone knows that award shows aren’t just about the winners. Self-respecting, hard-working fashion victims around the globe sit glued to awards shows for hours, critiquing the outfits, the accessories, the boyfriends, the make up and the speeches. Come on, fess up. You do it, we all do it. Now, let’s compare notes…
Former royalty A-lister, Sarah Ferguson quite frankly should have stayed home! Her Cleopatra eye makeup was more Mardi Gras than Golden Globe… Someone who has all the right moves, however, is South African farm girl turned superstar Charlize Theron who made a fabulous entrance in Christian Dior. Gorgeous, charming and a winner through and through, taking home the best Actress award.
Blondes have more fun? Not so for Sarah Jessica Parker and that haute coute dress made especially for her by Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel looked stunning! Also looking like a million bucks was Jennifer Aniston, minus her most famous handbag, hubby Brad Pitt. Mrs Pitt also presented an award on the night, and it looked like she came dangerously close to popping out of her sexy dress with its super plunging neckline!
One of the spunkiest men on earth, Johnny Depp looked positively sexy in his old-style gangster get up, accompanied by his stunning wifey Vanessa Paradis. Sex in the City veteran Kim Cattrell looked just peachy with an up hair do, and a silky frock, that was ten times as classy as her alter ego Samantha has even been. Vintage Valentino will do that to a girl, darling.
Will and Grace star Debra Messing was positively glowing in a fab frock with loads of cleavage! Not a hint of frumpy maternity wear here! And that other fabulous-when-pregnant star Catherine Zeta Jones, self-appointed princess of Hollywood, rubbed everyone’s noses in it – talk about smug married! Queer Eye fav Carson got into the spring of things, sporting a pink jacket – how appropriate. Notably absent from the red carpet was another fiery raven-haired beauty, Penelope Cruz.
Current beau Tom Cruise was nominated for best actor, the award being presented by ex-wife Nicole Kidman. Now, that could have been one awkward moment. But luckily, for our Nic, neither Tom, nor good friends Russell Crowe and Jude Law took the title. Nic was a fashion star on the night with a stunning frock featuring a gold sequin bodice, plunging neckline and romantic flowing, chiffon skirt, courtesy of Yves Saint Laurent. Critics the world over have been commenting on our Nic’s style on this night of nights. To us, she can never put a foot wrong.
Jennifer Aniston sets the record straight on rumours her wedding with Justin Theroux has been postponed.
“We have yet to set any date,” Aniston, 44, told Associated Press while promoting her latest film We’re the Millers, in New York.
“There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings. There have been no arguments about where to get married. Just clearing all that up.”
Aniston and Theroux, 41, have been engaged since last August, and insists they are just waiting for the right time .
“We just want to do it when it’s perfect, and we’re not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job.
“And, you know, we already feel married.”
Courteney Cox pregnant
Friends star Courteney Cox is pregnant with her second child, according to US tabloid Life & Style. Apparently the 41-year-old is in her first trimester and is concerned that there might be problems down the line. Her husband David Arquette told an insider: ?We?re expecting a child, but she doesn?t need the pressure of everyone watching us. She?s not that far along, but she has it in her head that there might be problems. You can never tell until after three months. It?s scary enough as it is. I just wish it hadn?t gotten out.” Apparently close friend Jennifer Aniston is thrilled by the news, David saying: ?It?s really good for her psyche that this happened. And she?s a great support, telling Courteney not to worry too much.? Another friend confirms the pregnancy as well, saying ?She?s very concerned. Not that anything?s wrong ? but there are risks as you get older.? Courteney?s rep denies any pregnancy.
Madonna vs Mariah
The claws were out at the Grammy Awards last week. Apparently Mariah Carey is ticked off that Madonna was given the coveted opening performance, saying she ?really wanted to open the show with her choir-backed rendition of We Belong Together.” Even though Mariah?s career resurrection resulted in 8 Grammy Nominations, Madonna has more celebrity cred and put in a few demands of her own. She told Grammy producers that if she wasn?t given the spot she wanted, she wouldn?t turn up at all. According to the New York Daily News, the producers gave in because they thought her Confessions of a Dancefloor collaboration with the Gorillaz would be good for ratings. Apparently this isn?t the first time Madonna and Mariah have battled. According to one insider: “The war between Madonna and Mariah has been going on for years? Mariah was also steaming last summer when Madonna stole the show at Live 8.”
Tom’s gay investigation
Acclaimed biographer Andrew Morton is determined to find some dirt on Tom Cruise, and the Hollywood star isn?t happy. Tom is threatening to sue because Andrew has hired a gay porn star and a Los Angeles private investigator to shed some light on his private life. Their brief: to find evidence that the Top Gun star is gay. The porn star, Paul Baressi has reportedly already come up with letters from Tom?s attorney implying that he enjoyed a homosexual liaison while shooting Eyes Wide Shut. But Tom?s lawyer has denied the claims, saying: “I wrote a letter to Mr. Morton back in November and said he obviously was entitled to write the book but ‘make sure you check your facts’. If he tries to use my letter to create the impression that Mr. Cruise did have a gay affair, we will certainly sue… because the story is false. Mr. Cruise is not gay.” Andrew Morton is previously known for collaborating with Diana, Princess of Wales to write a biography of her life.

Sarah O’Hare expecting
Mum-to-be, SarahOne of Australia?s favourite daughters is having a baby. Gorgeous model Sarah O?Hare and her media magnate husband, Lachlan Murdoch have confirmed they are expecting their first child. The baby will be the eighth grandchild of Rupert Murdoch, media baron and head of News Corp world wide. Gossip has been rife for months since O?Hare withdrew from the Melbourne Fashion Week in March and her agent blamed her uni timetable for keeping her away. Now we all know it was actually morning sickness! Then just last week they sent the media into a frenzy of ?are they or aren?t they?? when Lachlan and Sarah were photographed arriving at New York’s Costume Institute ball, she showing an obvious bump in her cream frock. Now she is going to be one Yummy Mummy!
Imagine pashing this hunk…Brad’s a great pash
Hands up all those girls that dream of pashing Brad Pitt? Well 24 year old Sydney actress Rose Byrne has done it! Rose Bryne is suddenly the name on everyone?s lips including divine Brad Pitt?s. How you ask has this Sydney girl has become America’s latest sweetheart? In the lastest epic flick Troy, Byrne is in a sex scene with Brad Pitt that has been leaving female audience members panting and men, well, feeling inadequate. In the film Byrne is lying on a bed of pillows, while Brad Pitt is naked and sweaty (just how we like him!). His 15kg of extra muscle (packed on for the role of famed Greek warrior Achilles) is rippling. So, what is it like for the local girl to spend the day shooting a steamy love scene with the actor often described as the sexiest man alive? “It was great,” said Byrne giggling, but not giving too much away. “God, he’s a great kisser.”
Lucky Rose Byrne has!Pitt thinks Byrne is a gem
It seems Brad was just as impressed by Bryne, telling journo?s ?Rose is a doll, isn’t she?” Pitt says. “She’s a gem.” Pitt, husband of Friends star Jennifer Aniston, appears naked in the scene. Or not quite, reveals Byrne. “No, no, he had a modesty patch on,” Byrne confesses. Byrne said Pitt made jokes to break the ice during Troy’s more intimate scenes. “He’s got a cheeky sense of humour. You think he’s serious and then he’ll make a joke,” she says. “Jokes? I thought I was being suave,” Pitt responds. Sounds like a movie for both sexes to attend ? Brad Pitt naked for the girls and lots of battle scenes and fighting for the boys! Perfect!
Mid air music with SherylSheryl Crow joins Mile High Rankings
Sheryl Crow made aviation history, last week by performing at 3,500 feet! The mid-air concert marked the launch of United Airlines’ partnership with Sony’s new Connect Online Music Service. “It’s like a new meaning for the ‘mile high club,'” Crow joked. “It’s a pretty cool idea.” Sheryl also let it slip that her new album will be filled with love songs thanks to her new boyfriend Lance Armstrong. “It’s going to be the most boring, sappy record you’ve ever heard,” she admitted. “It’s going to be, ‘I love Lance.'” Crow and cycling champ Armstrong ? he has won the grueling Tour de France the last five years in a row ? have been enjoying the last three months in Spain while Armstrong trains to try and win his sixth tour win. “It’s a whole different world for me and it’s great to be in his world and step out of mine for a while,” Sheryl said, she went on to add “I’m good; I’m riding the bike now.” So will we see the rocker in next year’s Tour de France? “No, you may see me in the car, but not on the tour.”
Natalie Imbruglia’s wedding secrets
Gorgeous pop star Natalie Imbruglia and Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns tied the knot at the close of 2003 on a beautiful tropical beach in far north Queensland. The high-profile bride and groom managed to keep the dreaded paparazzi guessing, the location of their nuptials was a closely guarded secret right up until the last minute. Celebrity guests including including Kylie Minogue flew in to Cairns airport, the invitation’s instruction to dress for warm weather the only hint to the wedding’s location.
A fairytale ending
Attendees were whisked away to the exclusive Thala Beach Lodge for the ceremony, where they were each issued with a pair of super cool white Haviana thongs. Ever-stylish Natalie wore a stylishly simple silk chiffon v-necked gown with a layered handkerchief hem. Rockstar Daniel wore, as expected, a vintage pale blue suit. The couple posed for an official photograph after the ceremony, which will be sold to media outlets, the proceeds being donated to the couple’s favourite charities. Insiders have revealed that the wedding was indeed a fairytale ending for the couple, and apparently, one of the most romantic events of the year!

Jennifer Aniston and friends say farewell
Want to know how everything ends for Monica and Chandler, Rachel and Ross, Phoebe and Joey? The final episode of epic sitcom Friends is about to be filmed in the US, but there will be no plot spoilers of this most anticipated series finale. Long-time cast members seem to have been rehearsing their goodbye speeches already. Jennifer Aniston said “It’s just absolutely painful in the weirdest way, because it’s the most fun and joyous place to be.” Lisa Kudrow was surprised at how intensely she felt about the end of the series. “It just kind of hit me over the head. It feels like a really deep, deep-down loss.” Recently pregnant Courteney Cox Arquette said “I can’t imagine my life without these people.”
It’s curtains for Friends
Series creators have struggled to come up with the penultimate scene for the ending of a series that has been one of TV’s top-rating sitcoms for 10 years. “What was great about this year is that we knew from the beginning it was absolutely the last season, so we could really plan for it and sort of start trains running in January and February, so hopefully the last episode feels earned and organic,” said one of the show’s writers. “I kind of imagine that [this] must be what it’s like to get divorced from someone you still love when you still have all the good feelings and you care so deeply,” Kauffman said. “You know it’s the right time and the right thing, and it doesn’t make it any less painful.” Sounds like it’s a tough time for these entertainment types – perhaps someone should remind them it’s only a TV show!
More tea, Ms Aniston?
And speaking of Queens, Jennifer Aniston looked ready for a tea party with the Queen in her Emmys ensemble. Her plain, low-cut navy frock contrasted with the abundance of floor length ball gowns on display around her, and the shorter hemline allowed Jennifer the opportunity to flash her bronzed and shapely legs.
More same-sex snogging
