Beyonce brings class and curves to SI Cover

How did she pull it off? Beyonce Knowles posed for the cover of Sport Illustrated in November 06, yet no one leaked that she'd be the cover girl.

You grow up seeing those issues and they're so amazing, it's crazy that I was able to be on the cover. It's amazing for me." It's extra special because Beyonce is only the 2nd African American to grace to cover of SI, the other being Tyra Banks.

Most celebs couldn't get away with this little red dress, but J Lo comes out looking like a rose.

Lindsay and Kate - friends forever

This photo caught my eye for several reasons. 1. How cool would it be to open a store in Paris - ala Tommy. 2. There were a bunch of celebrities at this event, but Lindsay and Kate were the two biggest. 3. All the other photos at the event are near perfect - perfect smiles, perfect angles, etc. 4. They look so "thrilled' in this shot.
