the best summer tours of 2012

summer concerts and festivals

Nothing beats an outdoor concert, and this year there are a plethora of tours to choose from. To make things easy on you, we broke down which shows are must-sees — and why.

Steve Aoki  – Leave the ticket stub laying on the backseat of your car for a little tendy cred.

Katy Perry  – Sure you consider your musical tastes a little above Katy Perry, but let’s face it, her tunes are catchy. And who doesn’t want to make out to Teenage Dream?

Justin Bieber – We’re not suggesting you really want to see the beebs, but you probably have a younger cousin or niece who does…wink, wink.

Aerosmith Global Warming Tour  – No matter how many bands come and go, Aerosmith always seems to keep their cool factor. Just know that you may run into your parents at the show.

Wiz Khalifa  – One of the top stars of 2012, this is one performer you don’t want to miss.

Beach Boys – This group basically invented the endless summer. Grab some tickets and indulge!

Madonna – If you were too young to get into one of her shows in the ’80s ( or the ’90s), here’s your chance to get up close and personal with the material girl.

Lady Antebellum – Deep down we all have a little country in our hearts, at least this group doesn’t make us feel guilty about it.

Journey – If you’ve ever seen Glee then you probably love Journey. Give up the fight, go buy some tix and see them in person.

Duran Duran  – Three  words: “80s Dance Party.”

best-dressed at the 54th Grammy Awards

Looks like we have Lady Gaga to thank for inspiring celebs to dress like it’s Halloween on the red carpet. The 2012 Grammy’s were filled with some outlandish attire, but we were still able to narrow it down the 10 best dressed.

Carrie Underwood was glowing in this intricate, open-back gown.  With her swept-back blonde hair and stunning blue eyes, she outshone everyone on the red carpet.

Adele Stayed true to her classic style by rocking the retro cat eye with a gorgeous vintage style Armani gown. She arrived at the red carpet already a winner!

Hilary Scott wore this gorgeously draped gown that really flattered her figure. Her long sleek locks pulled this entire look together. Oh yeah, and her makeup? All tarte.

Julianne Hough chose this exotic black strapless gown and kept her hair and makeup simple, balancing out her entire look.

Kelly Osborne, infamous for her daring dress choices,looked chic and elegant in this one shoulder Grecian-influenced  gown. And her soft purple locks looked beautiful — Katy Perry, take notes!

Kelly Rowland knows she has an amazing figure, and in this gown so does everyone else! She chose a dress that really complimented her shape, but still looked lovely and elegant.

I usually don’t choose Paris Hilton as a best dressed candidate, but she really looked gorgeous last night. She shockingly chose a tasteful and sophisticated gown. Well done, Ms. Hilton!

Rihanna collaborated with Armani to design this  risqué little number. She definitely could have done something else with her hair, but the dress was perfect.

Jane Seymour kept it simple in this fitted, gold gown. She looks amazing, while still dressing for her age and maintaining her sexy appeal.

  Honorable Mention

Katy Perry always knows how to stand out and make a statement. Despite her blue hair her blue gown and makeup were done up to perfection.

Retro glam, sleek metallics and glossy locks ruled the red carpet at last night’s American Music Awards, Nicki Manaj and Katy Perry battled it out for most outrageous outfit, and Taylor Swift snagged her Artist of The Year Award in a simple ponytail – but what really caught our eye was the flawless, lovely lip shades we spotted on nearly every songbird and starlet in attendance.

From Audrina Patridge’s deep berry pucker, to the soft, sweet pink shades on Heidi Klum and Selena Gomez – last night was all about the pout. Here, we’ve rounded up the best beauty looks of the night.
