Black Eyed Peas leading lady Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson has topped the 13th annual “Famed Hottest Looks” list as having Hollywood’s most desired figure. Of course the songstress has been “working on her fitness” since well before she sang about it in 2006.
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen took the 2nd spot, with House star Olivia Wilde rounding out the top 3.
Best body on the male side went to Hugh Jackman, with Eric Dane and Matthew McConaughey following.
Last year’s winner, Jennifer Aniston, didn’t crack the top three on the list compiled by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Richard W. Fleming, M.D. and Toby G. Mayer, M.D. The doctors keep track of the most requested celebrity body parts and release the list each year.
“Fergie’s body is proportional – that’s really the key,” Dr. Fleming told Tarts. “ Women like Jennifer Aniston and Eva Longoria have topped the “best body” list in the past. They’re not as curvy as Fergie is, but they’re all proportional.”

Last weekend millions of romantics celebrated Valentine’s Day by hitting the theatres to catch the romantic comedy Valentine’s Day. The stellar cast, comprising A-list hotties including Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Julia Roberts, and Taylor Swift, was the main reason many ladies and gentlemen caught the film.
Julia Roberts has been America’s sweetheart for generations, and despite giving birth to three kids, still has one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood. Julia’s personal trainer Kathy Kaehler says, “I try to keep it very creative so she doesn’t get bored.” Julia enjoys working out in the pool at her Malibu home to spend more time with her kids. In the pool, Julia does a mix of running, cross-country ski movements and arm strengthening exercises. The water adds resistance creating an overall body toning experience. Julia’s trainer says, Julia “needs to look good on-screen, but she also needs the strength and energy to run around after her kids offscreen.” “Swimming and water exercises are great ways to build up endurance and stay fit.”
If you are interested in a quick water workout like Julia’s, try this routine designed by her trainer Kathy. First, swim a few easy laps to warm up (about 5 to 10 minutes). Then, put on a flotation belt and head to the deep end. Run at an easy pace for 60 seconds, a moderate pace for 90 seconds, a fast pace for 60 seconds, and repeat 5 times. Keep going if you want a bigger burn.

Nostalgic fans of The O.C., rejoice! – Rachel Bilson is finally returning to the small screen this fall, in a lead role for a new CW drama series, Hart of Dixie. Since she was cast as breezy O.C. girl Summer Roberts eight years ago until now, Rachel has fascinated people with her iconic style and petite physique. But with her toned body, Rachel says, comes a balance of diet, exercise, and discipline.
Almost all of Rachel’s fitness regimen – both diet and exercise aspects alike – can be credited to renowned health guru David Kirsch, an advocate of mind-body wellness. Under his carefully crafted fitness training exercise program, Rachel undergoes cardio exercises, lunges, squats, and resistance exercises using equipment like light weights, up to five times a week. The variety of David’s programs is expansive – targeting anything from legs to butt to abs – but one of his most popular is his general 10-Minute Total Body Workout, a quick workout consisting of 3 moves: reverse prone scissors, Spider-Man push ups, and double crunches. Here’s a walk-through for each:
- Reverse Prone Scissors: Lie facedown on the floor, resting your forehead on your hands. Spread your legs so your feet are about a yard apart and flex your feet so the tips of your toes are touching the floor. Squeeze your butt muscles to raise your legs as high as you can off the floor, and bring your heels together until they touch. Hold for 3 counts, then return legs to the starting position.
