Teenagers have always idolized celebrities and tend to then dress like them. The latest fashion queen seems to be Miley Cyrus. And it is not just teens. Smaller children have also been copying her and to my surprise even some adults have been caught in the Miley Cyrus craze. Miley is the main character of the show "Hannah Montana". This has been her main portal to super-stardom. She only made it big in 2006 when the show became extremely popular.
She literally started as a no one and ended up as one of the most famous people in the world and she will remain famous for very long time. Not many people know that her real name used to be Destiny Hope Cyrus but she later changed this to Miley Ray Cyrus. Because she always smiled as a baby her parents called her Smiley, this later changed to Miley. Miley Cyrus seems to have become the perfect image for the modern teenager. Although she is still young she is already a worldwide super star that has achieved more than most people do in their entire life. She always seems to look different. She loves to change her style and this means that everybody changes their appearance.
No matter what she wears she looks amazing. This is because of her strong spirit. She seems to enjoy everything that she does to the full extent. Miley is one of the only women in the world that can go from the "totally innocent" look to the "super rock star" look in a matter of minutes. She puts allot of attention on every little detail from her hair all the way down to her shoes. How did she get this famous? Well she has been all over the place the last few years.
Who Are Miley Cyrus Parents and how much talent did she inherit from them are questions most of her fans would love to know. Miley was born on November 23, 1992 in Nashville Tennessee to Leticia Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus.
Her father is a country singer and she has five siblings from previous relationship of her mother and father. Her siblings are also part of the entertainment industry and are as talented as Miley.
Miley Cyrus was initially named Destiny Hope as her parents had a lot of faith that their daughter is destined to great things in life. As she had a smiling face she was nicknamed Smiley which later on got shortened to Miley.
She got her singing genes from her father and growing up in an environment that constantly encouraged her to try things only propelled her towards achieving success at such an young age. The star of Hannah Montana has come a long way and owes much of her success to her parents who helped her achieve her dreams.
She grew up on her parent's farm in Nashville and regularly attends church. She officially changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus reflecting her fathers name with her own. It shows the deep bond she shares with her parents and in particular her father.
Who Are Miley Cyrus Parents is also asked looking at the enormous talent that she possesses and people are curious as to how much her parents have shaped her destiny. She attributes he success story to her parents and recognizes their importance in her life.
If you've been hearing the name lately especially from young children and teens and you're wondering who this celebrity is, two words: "Hannah Montana". Miley Cyrus is a young teen actress who plays the dual title role on Disney's TV Series "Hannah Montana". She plays Miley Stewart, a normal teenage girl whose alter ego is the flamboyant and extremely famous music pop icon, Hannah Montana. The success of this TV series launched young Miley into instant stardom and her star still shines on.
Miley Cyrus was born Destiny Hope Cyrus, daughter of Billy Ray and Leticia Cyrus. If you're wondering why the name "Billy Ray Cyrus" sounds familiar, maybe it's because you've heard of his most famous song, "Achey Brakey Heart" which came out in the 1990's. Between Billy Ray and Leticia, Miley has 5 other siblings: Trace and Brandi are her maternal siblings (children of Leticia from a previous relationship), Christopher Cody is his father's child from his previous relationship and she also has 2 younger siblings, Braison and Noah to complete the family.
The name Miley as it happens comes from "Smiley" which the family called Miley when she was younger because she smiled often. The nickname got shortened to Miley over time, which is kind of fateful considering that what launched her to stardom was her portrayal of a teenage girl named "Miley Stewart" in Hannah Montana.
Her passion for performing was probably ignited at a young age because when she was 9, she enrolled at the Armstrong Acting Studio in Toronto, Canada where she and her family lived for a while. Her first on-screen appearance was when she appeared on her father's TV series "Doc". After that, she also landed a stint as "Young Ruthie" on Tim Burton's "Big Fish". But, of course, she was determined that she was meant for greater things. She auditioned for the coveted title role of Hannah Montana for Disney's newest TV series. She was even willing to take on a lesser role, like that of the "best friend" character. However, it was initially not meant to be. Disney thought she was too young, too small for the part.
The winds of change blew forth. She was called back for further additions and well, it's no surprise, she got the part. The TV series became very popular with kids between 6 and 14 and parents liked her wholesome, role model image. As she was playing a popular music icon in the series, it is to be expected that she'll also be performing outside of the series. Several concerts and soundtrack CD's came out as part of the franchise. The first CD was essentially a soundtrack while the 2nd CD was both a soundtrack as well as her first musical debut album performing as herself and not as Hannah Montana. There was even a spin-off movie which she also starred in.
Young girls don't have enough good heroines to look up these days. Sure, there are lots of cute girls running all over the television, but half of them seem to be on the verge of stripping off the rest of their clothes and the other half are unbelievably goody-two-shoes. I was a girl myself once, and I can still remember Punky Brewster and the girls on Full House. It just seems like now that I'm a mother, I can't seem to find the same "normal" type of characters for my daughter to watch.
I know that I am the best role model my child needs. I already do what I can to avoid some of the nastier curse words around her and find nice things to say to and about everyone. (Believe me, it's definitely a challenge sometimes.) I carefully screen her friends (and her friends' parents) to make sure she isn't going to be hanging out with the next Brittany Spears or Lindsay Lohan, but there is definitely something lacking still.
When I sit down to watch television with my not-so-little girl in the evenings, I want to find something that everyone can enjoy and something that is appropriate for everyone. This leaves out 99% of the reality shows and anything on a music channel. As far as evening television shows go, there just isn't much out there that satisfies the whole family.
Fortunately, we had a serious stroke of luck the other day. A friend, who also has a daughter too old for Dora and too young for the Housewives, stumbled across Miley Cyrus. Not only does Miley play a great character on her television show, she also is a quality person off the screen.
Onscreen Miley plays a girl who struggles with her true self and leans on her friends and family for support. She dresses appropriately, but fashionably, and looks healthy and happy. She is everything I know my daughter is and offers her a role model she might try to emulate.
Off screen, there is even more to Miley Cyrus. She is a real singer with a real solid wholesome family. She lives with her family who tries to protect her from the crazy Hollywood lifestyle and actually attends church every Sunday. Her father is a famous singer, and Miley is working to become one herself - in fact she's already there. A wholesome family girl who goes to church while following her dreams? What else could a mother ask for?
Miley Ray Cyrus the American actress-singer-song writer hit the headlines with her role as Hannah Montana in the Disney Channel series of the same name. Her first album 'Meet Miley Cyrus' was released in June 2007 and the second album 'Breakout' in July 2008. Both the albums topped the Billboard 200.
Miley Cyrus, who is of partly Cherokee origin, was born in 1992 in Nashville, Tennessee, to parents Leticia "Tish" and Barry Ray Cyrus who was a country singer. Miley has five siblings, two of who are also in the music field. Trace Cyrus is both a guitarist and a singer, while Brandi Cyrus plays the guitar. Miley also has an older half brother Christopher Cody other than a younger brother and sister. Her paternal grandfather is a politician in the Democratic Party.
When she was born her parents named her Destiny Hope hoping that one day she would become famous, but she was called Smiley because she always had a lovely smile on her face. This was what was later shortened to 'Miley'.
During her school days in Heritage Middle School, Miley was a Cheer leader. She is now attending school in Options for the Youth Charter Schools. Due to lack of time she studies with the assistance of a teacher while she is on the sets of her TV shows.
Her interest in acting began when she was hardly nine years of age and she did the role of Kylie inn one of the father's TV serials. She took lessons in acting from the Armstrong Acting Studio when they were living in Canada.
Miley Cyrus has received a number of Awards that include The Young Artist Award, MTV Movie Awards, Nickelodeon UK Kids' Award, Choice Award, People's Choice Award and many more.
She has tachycardia, a heart problem and she has mentioned this in her autobiography 'Miles To Go'. She is a devout Christian and believes that 'faith' is her reason for being in Hollywood. She takes an active interest in helping the downtrodden and the funds raised by the charity show she held on her sixteenth birthday was donated to the Youth Service America. She also contributed handsomely to the City of Hope, a cancer research center.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been in sensational form all season for Manchester United, and his goals and performances on the pitch have no doubt helped to provide Man United with yet another Premiership title after a belated 3-year absence.
United winger Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 17 goals this season from 31 appearances for club side Manchester United, and is currently in with a chance of finishing the season as top Premiership goal-scorer. He is currently second in the top scorers chart for the Premiership, and is only 2 goals behind Didier Drogba who is leading the chart with just one fixture remaining.
Though this award may be one step too far for Cristiano Ronaldo, it is probably one that he wouldn't mind out on missing. Cristiano Ronaldo is a winger and for a midfielder to score 17 goals in one season is an incredible performance. Cristiano won't mind out on this award though; the United midfielder has already won both the PFA young player of the year award and the PFA player's player of the year award, a feat not matched since 1977 when Andy Gray also won both awards.
Cristiano Ronaldo is also seen as a bit of a sex symbol by plenty of English women, with plenty of interest shown in the United winger's private life by media and fans alike. This can be noticed from the Google search engine's search-terms used; cristiano ronaldo girlfriend, cristiano ronaldo wallpapers and cristiano ronaldo pictures are some of the most popular searches made. Young female fans around the world will be heart-broken to hear that Cristiano Ronaldo does currently have a girlfriend, actress and former Hollyoaks star Gemma Atkinson.
Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend and his personal awards this season aren't the only positives to come out of the United winger's season; speculation regarding his future has all been put to bed since Ronaldo signed a new 5 year contract worth £120,000 a week. Ronaldo had been constantly linked with interest from other top European sides, with Milan, Real Madrid and Barcelona all consistently linked with big-money bids for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester United midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo has the chance to complete an amazing personal season by lifting the FA Cup when Man United meet league runners-up Chelsea in the final at the new Wembley stadium in May. Ronaldo already has the premiership medal, PFA young player's award, PFA player's player award, a 5 year contract with the Premiership champions worth £5 million and a stunning actress girlfriend. He can still top this incredible season by being top premiership scorer, and by winning the FA Cup at the first major match at Wembley stadium. Life can't get much better for Cristiano Ronaldo.
There aren't a lot of soccer players in the world today that can honestly state they are more popular than Cristiano Ronaldo. Except for a few already established super stars such as Ronaldinho or David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo is probably the most popular rising star on the pitch.
His good looks combined with his awesome repertoire of Cristiano Ronaldo soccer tricks and a hint of trademarked Cristiano Ronaldo goals made him reach the level of fame on which he is basking in the spotlight sun today.
This Cristiano Ronaldo biography will try to take you through his career and although it's a rare case that a player who is still in his early 20s receives a biography, I'm sure you'll agree that a Cristiano Ronaldo profile is in order, considering his huge talent and fame.
Born in Madeira to a family where soccer was cherished, Cristiano Ronaldo started playing for a local amateur youth team called Andorinha, where his father handled the equipment and acted as a kit man.
Cristiano was 8 when he joined Andorinha and by the time he was 10, he already sparked the curiosity of some of Portugal's biggest clubs. This led him to sign for the local first-division team CD Nacional, where he would join the youth club and immediately make an impact, helping his team win the youth championship the following year.
After just 1 year at Nacional, he was offered a youth contract by bigwigs Sporting Lisbon, who are internationally renowned for having one of the best youth training facilities in the World.
The young player fit right in at Sporting and started scoring regularly, although he was way too fond on his dribble at that point. Despite this short coming, he was taken in to various levels of the Portugal national youth squad, finally getting his big break at the UEFA under 17 Championship in 2001.
His great performance there drew the eyes of Liverpool's scouts, but Ronaldo was just 16 years old and the Liverpool officials decided he needs more time in the Portuguese league before they sign him.
Being taken in the senior squad of Sporting meant the young player's first contact with professional football. Although he didn't play regularly, the few moments that he did get on the pitch were greeted with cheers from the Sporting fans, who loved Cristiano Ronaldo's soccer tricks. In 2 seasons with Sporting's senior squad, Ronaldo got to play 28 matches, scoring 3 times before he was picked up by Manchester United's scouts, at age 18.
Sir Alex Ferguson, manager and coach of Manchester United desperately needed a quality right midfielder in 2003, as David Beckham had just left the club for Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo's supposed current girlfriend, a talented actress and beautiful model, has been accused of cheating on the Manchester United star again - this time with another Premiership footballer.
Gemma was seen at the weekend with Wigan Athletic new-boy Marcus Bent, enjoying themselves at an English theme park. According to witnesses, the pair appeared to be very happy together, taking lots of photographs of one and other and even asking other members of the public to take some pictures of them too.
This hardly seems fair on Cristiano Ronaldo, though it was never really officially announced that he and Gemma Atkinson were a pair. Though Gemma had admitted she was dating Ronaldo live on Sky Sports program Soccer AM, the idea was rejected by Cristiano Ronaldo's own mother, and there is no real evidence or photographs that show the pair as an item.
Just a few months ago it was alleged that Gemma was having an affair on Cristiano with Home and Away actor Mark Furze. Not long after this, Ronaldo was spotted kissing Bolywood actress Bipasha Basu. However, after these two incidents it was apparent that Ronaldo was still dating Atkinson despite the reported events.
However it appears that this time around, Gemma and Cristiano may not be a couple anymore. Another picture was recently released showing Gemma Atkinson enjoying herself out clubbing with Marcus Bent - coming not long after she was spotted at Chessington theme park, again with Premiership striker Bent.
It is believed that Gemma had already broken up with boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo, after she was interviewed on Channel 4's T4 on the beach program, where she made the admission that she is no longer dating the talented Man Utd midfielder. This news is sure to bring a smile to nearly every girl around the world, who all dream of one day dating the Portuguese star.
Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend Gemma Atkinson has been accused of lying about having a relationship with the Manchester United midfielder by his own mother.
The former Hollyoaks actress had been rumoured to be dating Cristiano Ronaldo for the past few months, although the couple have never actually been spotted together.
Ronaldo's girlfriend Gemma has been very open about her relationship with Cristiano, stating to the British media that they were a couple on several occasions. Ronaldo's girlfriend has also reportedly said that the couple are enjoying some great, hot sex together. Cristiano Ronaldo has been far less open about their relationship, and now his mother has stepped in to the argument by accusing Gemma Atkinson of lying.
Ronaldo's mother lives in her son's homeland, Portugal, and she hasn't heard anything about her son dating Gemma Atkinson. This has led her to believe that Gemma has fabricated the whole story, and that she has never had any kind of relationship with the young, sexy actress.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun newspaper, Dolores Aveiro, Cristiano Ronaldo's mum, was quoted as saying "Cristiano doesn't have a girlfriend. I put my hands in the fire as he did not go with the girl people say is his girlfriend. I don't know her and don't care if she's beautiful." Ronaldo's mum firmly believes that Gemma Atkinson is simply jealous that she can't be with Cristiano, and is trying to raise her own profile and make a name for herself by pretending to be dating the Manchester united star midfielder.
It remains to be seen whether Cristiano is simply keeping their relationship a secret from his mother and from the worldwide media, and that his mum is simply being over-protective on behalf of her son by denying the claims that he is dating Gemma Atkinson. However according to Gemma's closest friends Cristiano and Gemma are a couple, and that judging by the texts they send each other they are very much happy together.
Manchester United's player of the season last year, Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo has recently struck more fear in to the hearts of opposing Premiership defenders by stating that he pictures an even better season for the newly crowned Premiership Champions.
Cristiano Ronaldo was by far the best player for Manchester United last season, and was also the best player in the whole of the Premiership, scoring 23 goals on his way to securing the Premiership trophy for the Man Utd team. Ronaldo was also voted both PFA Young Player Of The Year, and PFA Players' Player Of The Year - an achievement in itself.
Despite the personal success last season round for Ronaldo, the young Portuguese star has now said that he would like to play even better for the Old Trafford side, and would like to beat last season's record of 18 Premiership goals - which was third behind Benni Mcarthy's 19 goals and Chelsea Striker Didier Drogba's 20 goal-haul.
Ronaldo went on to say "I have been in England for four years now. In my first season, I scored seven goals, in my second I scored nine, then 12 and last season I got 23. I try to improve every season".
It is quite hard to see how Cristiano Ronaldo can perform better next season at Manchester United, seeming as he played so well last season. Perhaps he will link up even better with his team-mates since the arrival of old Portuguese friend, left-winger Nani. Another new arrival is Brazilian central midfielder Anderson, and English central midfielder Owen Hargreaves. If the prolonged Carlos Tevez saga is ever resolved then the Argentinean striker might also help to improve the Man Utd team, which could in turn help Ronaldo to perform even better.
One thing which is certain is that Cristiano Ronaldo will try his best to improve both his goal scoring record and his own performances next season. The young winger has already joked with Sir Alex Ferguson about making another bet regarding how many goals he scores - this time the loser is apparently going to shave all their hair off. It is unseen whether Sir Alex or Cristiano would be willing to do this should their bet lose - so I'm sure either way he will see Ronaldo improving again as a footballer when the next season kicks off.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a professional footballer who is currently playing for the La Liga club, Real Madrid. He is the captain of the national team of Portugal and he holds the record of being the most expensive footballer in the history of the game.
He was born on the 5th of February, 1985, and started his football career with Andorinha. He moved to Nacional before joining the prestigious Sporting Lisbon. In a match where Sporting Lisbon played against Manchester United, the talent of Cristiano Ronaldo impressed the senior players of Manchester United and they urged their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson to sign the youngster.
Manchester United signed the 18 year old Cristiano Ronaldo in the year 2003. Cristiano Ronaldo was exceptionally talented in the ball dribbling department and left the defender dumbfounded with his tricks. The moves that he spent on the pitch to leave the defenders dumbfounded became a sensation with the fans and various video compilations of his moves were uploaded on the internet to announce to the world this exceptional talent. However, experts criticized Cristiano Ronaldo for the fact that he spent excessive time on the ball and this decreased his effectiveness as a player. It was a right concern and Sir Alex Ferguson helped Cristiano Ronaldo to use his dribbling skills to adopt a more productive style of football and thus, created the player that Cristiano Ronaldo is today. He regards Sir Alex Ferguson as his "father" in the game of football.
The first trophy that Ronaldo won with the club was of the FA Cup and thus, started the triumphs of the young player which kept on accumulating as Ronaldo worked hard to improve on and on as a player. He became the first player in the history of the game to win all the major awards of PFA and FWA in 2007. He has been compared to the great legends of their times and has even been cited as being better than the Manchester United's George Best.
Cristiano Ronaldo won the Champions League with Manchester United by defeating Chelsea. It was a remarkable match in which both teams of England contested against each other in the final and fans had much difficulty in acquiring the Chelsea Ticketsand Manchester United Tickets. Cristiano Ronaldo was the highest scoring player in the tournament and won the Golden Boot for this accolade. Furthermore, he also won three of the major PFA and FWA awards that season.
In 2009, he moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid for a record transfer fee of £80 million. His contract made him the highest paid player in the world and he proved his worth when he became the highest goal scorer in the history of Real Madrid for a single season. He is the first player in the history of Real Madrid to have scored more than 50 goals in single season. He went on to become the top goal scorer in the history of the La Liga. For his achievement, he was awarded the European Golden shoes once again and this made him the first player ever to have won this trophy in two separate championships.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a prolific player who has achieved a lot in his career. His greatest adversary is considered to be Lionel Messi who plays with their league rivals Barcelona. It has now become a common to refer to El Clasico as a clash between the two great players - Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. They are one of the major reasons for the high sales of the Real Madrid Tickets and Barcelona Tickets as fans love to see the two players performing against each other.
Every once in a while a beach girl grabs the world's canvas--one day you'd never heard of her, let alone seen her--the next day she is the cover girl of your dreams, on every newsstand.
From Israel, and gorgeous in the extreme, Bar has graced the covers of Cosmopolitan, Maxim and Elle as well as the coveted cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2009 and its subsequent books and calendars.
In July, she was bodypainted with the title and wording from the new Stephen King novel for the cover of Esquire.
Having been squired by Leonardo DiCaprio at the time, she was catapulted into bikini hyperspeed. Seen with Leo at Bakers Bay, Bahamas late last month, there are inklings that the two may have reunited again.
Combining an almost feline set of blue eyes and a lion's mane of tawny golden hair, she is curvy and womanly, no stick figure Bar. Her freckled, sunny naturalness is the antidote to near perfect proportions.
At 24 years old, she now commands the ranking and fees of a super model. Her image is known around the world in fashion. She has hosted television. She has even graced an airline side when Southwest Airlines painted an image of her on its 737 Boeing carrier.
In March this year Refaeli received the "World Style Award," presented by the Women's World Awards, for her "natural elegance, sense of style and compassion."
In a controversial move some years ago Bar married (and just as quickly divorced) a family friend to avoid the mandatory military service to her country for all men and women 18 years or older. Sidestepping khaki, Bar relocated to Los Angeles and has never looked back, saying, 'I really wanted to serve (in the IDF), but I don't regret not enlisting, because it paid off big time,' she said. "That's just the way it is, celebrities have other needs. I hope my case has influenced the army'
Now in LA, Bar is the new face of hip street and beach clothing line Hurley in a sizzling campaign that showcases her edginess and beauty.
Having done the 2010 photos already for Sports Illustrated Bar should be joyful and exuberant as she has a great year ahead it seems.
At first blush, you read this title and mutter to yourself 'Impossirus--no one (and I mean not no body, not no way, not no how, Wizard of Oz-style) looks good naked, let alone hot'.
Not unless you are Brooklyn Decker, the new uber-gorgeous uber-naked cover girl of the coveted Sports Illustrated Swim issue for this year -- just out on the stands last week -- and plastered everywhere on the news, nets and wavelengths since. Time Life, parent owner of SI, estimates that some 65 million people will see this issue and her cover, worth squillions to her in modelling contracts and endorsements, and bringing in the SI bacon to the tune of 7+ million buckoes. From what the punters say these cover girl's images are seen on anything from bar coasters to calendars to flavored mineral water to move and sell product. Last year's cover girl, the fiercely stunning Bar Refaeli, squired recently by Leonardo di Caprio, is rumored to be sizzling that she was over-stepped in lieu of Mrs. Andy Roddick, aka Brookie.
Ms Decker's half-clothed wunderschon-ness was unveiled from atop a New York skyscaper on a national news late night talk show (erm, that would be Letterman, of course) in the interests of modesty -- the hour -- and suspense -- the day before its release. (Guess the editors and producers thought that school-aged tots being bussed and ferried to their respective nurseries and elementary schools the net morning wouldn't notice 100 feet of smiling yellow sunshine from Brooke towering above their limos and buses, exposed and half-dressed in a yellow bikini bottom.) It mattered not. She'd look amazing wearing half a yellow foul flag.
But we are not talking total birthday suit here, just a lot of skin. In a pull-out of the mag, she reclines in a woven net hammock, all 5 ' 9 inches of her gloriousness basking in a sea green bikini. This photo while alluring did not make the cover. Why? Too much clothing! Not enough nakedness. Naked or at least topless is what sells, and naked is most definitely hot!
For full-on undress, SI offers its readers a special chapter called 'Bodypainting'. It's more than 'window dressing'. It's full on frontal, up close and and personal -- with 18 hours of layered theatrical paint. This year does not disappoint -- there are European World Cup footballers' wives, fiancees, girlfriends and according to the gossip rags, has-been wannabees painted up in their respective men's 'strips'. Under all that goop, is an ultra-10 naked body. Yikes!
Not to be outdone by the sporting world, with its Olympian women athletes, dancing stars and catwalk beauties, even Hollywood starlet Ashley Greene of the iconic Twilight franchised films gets her kit on, or off, as the case may be. Sponsor SoBe Lifewater used the same make-up artist Joanne Gair and photographer of 3 of the last 4 selected SI Swim covers Raphael Mazzucco to paint her in its logo gecko-scaled swimsuits for its debut of 'Skinsuits' and 2 new zero calorie flavors. Alice Cullen has zero inhibitions, for sure. Who cares about dying!
But the hottest and most naked of all totally drops her shell. Candy shell, that is. Miss Green, of M & M fame has appeared on SI Swim's (back) cover for years now. Not to be outshone by Ms Greene, above, our demure little sweetie loses her top shell and rolls down her bottom shell, coyly. This Miss Green's byline on her website (yes, she has a website, Twitter, Facebook accounts and even background wallpaper, plus nearly 8000 friends, for crimminy-sakes!) is ' I melt for no one.'
Past beauties that have been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition include Marisa Miller, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, Christie Brinkley and Naomi Campbell, as well as 2009 cover model Bar Refaeli. What do these supermodels all have in common? They all have toned abs, long legs, large breasts, great butts, and amazing skin, to start with.
So how can you improve your appearance to look more like a swimsuit model? Here are some plastic surgery tips that can help.
You can increase the size of your breasts up to several cup sizes with breast augmentation. With the placement of silicone or saline implants, you can have a more proportionate, womanly figure.
Lose weight in your hips, abs, butt, thighs, and other problem areas of your body with liposuction. During the liposuction procedure, your plastic surgeon can remove pockets of fat from specific areas of your body.
Increase the size of your butt with a Brazilian butt lift. During this procedure, plastic surgeons transfer fat from other areas of your body to the buttocks to create a shapelier butt. If you don't have enough fat to transfer, your surgeon can insert butt implants to increase the size of your butt.
Enhance the appearance of your six-pack with abdominal etching, a procedure designed to remove remaining areas of fat along the abdominals.
Supermodels have smooth, clear skin that shows no signs of pores and other flaws. Improve the appearance of your skin with chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, IPL photofacials, and professional skin care products.
Looking at Bar Refaeli's picture on the cover of 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue will make young and older men want to whip out their wallets and buy the magazine to get a better look at this beauty while younger girls who doesn't have the so called ideal attribute to model for such a coveted media may feel deprived and that alone can have a big impact on their self-confidence in their young adult life. These teen in order to grow and become successful adults must learn to accept their genetic and the way they are made physically. Thanks God, there are more and more magazines such as Vogue and Glamour featuring models of different size and ethnicity.
On the men side, action figure heroes have always been depicted as tall and well built men such as 6 foot 4 Christopher Reeves in Superman and tall and very muscular Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan. Young adult men under 6 feet would have their ego terribly shattered at the notion that they were not fit to be a superhero. The very thought that their own kids could not possibly see them as a role model for a fictional action movie can have a terrible effect on their self-esteem and self-confidence.
That model too is changing with the release of Spiderman, wonderfully played by Tobey Maguire, who at 5 foot 9 is closer in height and can relate more to the average male. At last, an action hero can be of average height. An action hero can finally look like the everyday common man not overly tall and not too short either. That action hero can also have a great looking girlfriend in the like of Kirsten Dunst who doesn't need six inches stiletto heels to feel comfortable around her man.
Remind them to be thankful for what God gave them! They may not have the good looks that Hollywood or Sports Illustrated are looking for but by searching deep within their soul, they would find their inner gift, their true gift, which they can nurture and share with the world.
Teach them to respect and help their fellow citizen! When you teach your children to respect others, specially elderly people, you are teaching them to be a positive force in the world and that will help boost their self-confidence. Helping a blind person to cross to the other side of the street is a feeling that they have done a good deed and that should develop long lasting confidence.
Teach them to always keep a positive attitude! It is not always easy to keep a positive attitude all the time but the mere idea of always trying will etch a pattern in the brain that is necessary for self-confidence. There is nothing wrong in looking sure of yourself! Never allow anyone to make them feel inferior. Always speak positively about themselves.
Teach them that no one is perfect, we all have insecurities. Even the most successful person have insecurities. They have overcome their insecurity in order to become successful. Once you have identify your insecurity, find a way to gradually get over it and move on.
Teach them to always be themselves! Every one is unique. They can have someone that they like, such as a role model but in the end they have to let the world see their own self. They have to let their star shine!
I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree. Though the famous words panned by Joyce Kilmer many years ago. Now Joyce, in this case happens to be a guy's name. He died in 1918 so you can figure out why he was talking only about poems back then, and that is because he never got the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated magazine.
This is my list of the 10 hottest Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Now you can disagree with me. I understand that. Heck, I could change my mind five times, and that would be only for tomorrow.

Hiking in Israel offers a wide array of experiences and adventures, for all ages and experience levels. The Israel National trail, spanning 620 miles from north to south of Israel, encompasses most of Israels most significant and beautiful hiking trails. It is no wonder then, that the best day hikes are found on the trail. Here are the 10 best day hikes for individuals and families looking for hiking Israel. Rating the best day trips on the Israel National Trail is not an easy task. If I had to write about only one trip, Karbolet Mountain would win the prize. Many hikers find this the most beautiful day on the trail, but it is also the most challenging one. The common opinion is that the Negev desert is the most beautiful part of the trail. The Negev is my own personal favorite as well. 75% of Israelis agree with me.
When hiking through the desert you sometimes get the feeling of being alone in front of the earth and god. The Negev night sky is different; it has many more stars than any other area due to low population and low light pollution. The sight is astonishing. Waking up to a cool desert morning feels like nothing else. Everything is blissfully quiet. I will recommend 5 trails in the Negev area, and five north of Arad. In my personal opinion these are all nicer than those in the northern part of Israel, but they are not arranged in order of preference (except for mount Karbolet which I will write about first).
If not stated otherwise, you can approach the start and end of the day hike with private vehicle or taxi. Logistics of getting there and back would usually be driving your car to one end, and pick up by taxi back to your car on the other end. All trails are described walking north to north.
Detailed trail descriptions from both directions along with topographical maps that allow you to navigate are in the Hiking Israel National trail guide (The Red guide).
Megan Fox, the hottest actress around at the moment, has got several tattoos. Some of them could be considered quite silly, some other are quite interesting indeed. Considering she is just 22 years old, which is something people tend to forget while criticizing her, I would prefer to concentrate myself on the interesting ones.
Honestly... this is the hardest hitting news for me and here I was hoping to see "Megan wearing tank-top and hot-pants transform into Megan wearing micro bikini" in the third installment of Transformers.
Well, it seems that Fox was cut from the casting of Transformers 3 which was confirmed by Paramount. According to online sources, the 'love-hate' relationship between Fox and director Michael Bay may have been the cause of why Fox was dropped from the film. However, the source had explained that in order to take Sam (LaBeouf) to a new direction in the film's plot, they decided to take Mikaela (Fox) out of the picture.
Apparently, the bombshell has been claiming that Bay is wonderful when not on set but a tyrant on set, even comparing him to 'Hitler' and 'Napoleon'. Michael Bay stated that he doesn't condone Megan's remarks about him and added that he still love working with her.
Well, guys... will Transformers 3 be as big as the previous installments, now that Fox is out of the picture and will Fox's career survive without Transformers?
The movie 'Jennifer's Body', where Jennifer (Fox) came back from the dead as a hot sexy demon chick, didn't really made it big, earning a mere $16.2 million domestically.
The movie 'Jonah Hex', which will be in theaters soon, will definitely be the defining point for Fox and we will find out if she can survive without Michael Bay's Transformers.
No matter how good Transformers 3 does in the box-office, I believe a lot of guys around the world will miss Megan's... err... Megan Fox in the franchise.
Megan Fox is a gifted actress who began her acting career with the film Holiday in the Sun, later appearing in the films Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Crimes of Fashion, and the TV series The Help. She is well known for her roles on the television series Hope & Faith and in the 2007 live-action film Transformers.
Fox has been outspoken in her self-identification as a bisexual. In a frank interview with GQ Magazine, Fox said that she fell in love with a female stripper when she was eighteen and used the experience to illustrate her belief that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes.
Megan Fox's first high school sweetheart recently told about his teenage romance with Fox before she moved to Hollywood to become a big star. They were typical first loves, with Fox sneaking out to see him and asking him to move to LA with her.
According to Ben Leahy, a 24 year-old firefighter in Vero Beach, Florida, he dated Megan for three years until she moved away to pursue her dream of acting in 2003 at the age of 17. He said she was into fishing, surfing, and being one of the guys but that she also had a wild side and loved sexy times. According to Ben, he was the one who broke it off after Megan landed her first big part.
Leahy also says he finds Megan's story that she had an affair with a Russian stripper named Nikita completely plausible, though, and said that Megan always had a thing for women, particularly Angelina Jolie. He went on to say that there were many times she would look at magazines for hours pointing out which actresses she thought were hot. She seemed to love women who were not conventionally pretty but apparently gifted and looked like they were into anything.
He said that Megan loved looking at women's bodies and that she just had no inhibitions and often spoke about the fact she liked to fantasize about being with a woman. So he was not in the slightest bit shocked that one of the first people she slept with after their relationship ended was a woman.
Megan and Leahy spent every minute together and she loved doing anything and everything with him. She used to go fishing and surfing, total boys things which Megan loved but Megan also knew how to drive him wild with her female charms.
As the pair grew older Ben got to see more of Megan's body when she would creep out late at night to be with the boy she loved.
Leahy says that although he did not have much money for gifts they had some amazing nights laying under the stars and that sometimes she would giggle and shriek with laughter knowing that while her parents were in bed she was outside doing all sorts with me. She loved doing anything which was naughty and since they were each others first love the times they were together were extra special since they were doing things together we had never done before. He says spending time with her was a real gift.
Unfortunately, their love was not meant to be and Megan moved to Hollywood and eventually cheated on him with 7th Heaven star David Gallagher:
Megan Fox just may be the sexiest woman in Hollywood. I'm not just saying this because she has an outstanding body or amazing looks. I believe that she has an attractive "vibe" about her as well. Let's compare her to Angelina Jolie...
Angelina Jolie takes herself way too seriously! I have pointed this out to many of my female friends and they tell me that "I'm afraid of a powerful woman". This isn't true at all. Men just like a woman with a good positive vibe about her. Angelina doesn't have that cheerful aura about her. Megan seems like she would be a lot more fun to hang out with.
Age really doesn't have anything to do with it. Megan is in her early 20's and Angelina is in her early 30's. This is a 10 year age difference, but it is not why men are more drawn to Fox. There is something to be said about the positive energy of youth, but even when Angelina was younger she seemed to take herself too seriously. More than anything she needs to smile a bit more.
Angelina Jolie comes from a "Hollywood Family". Her dad is Jon Voight who was doing movies years before she was born. There is something to be said for a self-made star. Megan was born in Tenessee in a small family and began acting when she was 13. She began trained in acting and modeling at the age of 5. It took her 8 years before she got noticed. I'm sure her stunning looks helped, but it wasn't like she was an "overnight sensation".
Many women point to the work she has had done. Apparently she has had a couple of procedures done, but she was beautiful woman anyway. The tan and teeth whitening and the small procedures are just fine tuning. Megan Fox isn't a woman that looks plastic like Pamela Anderson. She is just flat-out sexy.
Angelina is in great shape as well, but has a tendency to get a bit too skinny. Megan Fox stays slim, but not in a way that looks unhealthy. Megan went from just being slim, to being toned for her role in Transformers. She admits to not enjoying working out, but does so anyway. If you look at her flat and toned stomach in Transformers, you realize that she did prep pretty hard for that role.
MEGAN FOX (height 1.68 m, 5' 6"), was born May 16, 1986 in Rockwood Tennesse, USA. She has one older sister. Megan grew up in a very poor household, but this did not stop her parents from encouraging her interest in arts at an early age. Megan's parents divorced when she was young and she and her sister were raised by her mother and her stepfather.
She began her acting career in 2001 with several minor television and film roles, and played a recurring role on Hope and Faith. In 2004, she launched her film career with a role in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Megan finally got her big breakthrough role in a live-action film "Transformers" in 2007, where she played the role of Mikaela Banes, the love-interest of Shia LaBoeuf. Megan Fox has been voted as the 'Sexiest Woman in the World by the readers of FHM magazine in 2008. In 2009, Fox appear in Diablo Cody's "Jennifer's Body", alongside Adam Brody and Amanda Seyfried. Megan Fox has appeared on the covers of many magazines (Premiere Magazine, ASOS Magazin, Diva magazine, FHM, GQ, ELLE, USA Weekend...).
Megan has eight known tattoos! The most popular of Megan's tattoos are the quote from the Shakespeare play King Lear on her right shoulder with the words "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies" and a portrait of Marilyn Monroe on her right arm. Megan Fox has a lot friends as Kellan Rhude, Amanda Seyfried, Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc... Megan Fox is currently engaged to actor Brian Austin Green.
One of the biggest break out stars over the past few years has got to be Megan Fox of Transformers fame. Not only was she amazing in the movie, she also looked great doing so. She basically looks great in anything she wears, which is why so many people want her Megan Fox sunglasses. If you want to look like her, as much as anyone can, then try wearing Versace sunglasses, which she has been seen wearing all around Hollywood. Try the 4114 model for a great oversized look that Megan is known for wearing. Plus, who does not want to wear the classic designer Versace?
Other Megan Fox sunglasses that you can try for yourself are Burberry glasses. Of course, if you want to look like Megan, you will want to try any of the oversized sunglasses that Burberry offers. For a sleek and unique look, try the ones that have a narrow bridge and thin arms on them. It is a great way to change up the classic oversized look.

There are aviators that you can try in the classic bronze shade, but you can try different colors if you want to be more daring.
