A History of Celebrity Sex Tapes and Photo Scandals

If Hollyscoop.com has learned one thing from celebrity sex tape/nude photo scandals, it’s that lighting is everything.

Back in my day, intimate home movies were a serious production shared between two people who were deeply in love. But in this day in age, people are tweeting their genitalia willy-nilly to anybody they meet on Craigslist. Oh, how the times have changed.

With the advent of technology, we’re using “smart” phones to show people our boobies. And, if it’s captured on a cell phone, hackers seem to have no problem finding A-list ass. Celebs might use them to propel their careers, and they say any publicity is good, but there’s no doubt, these celebs have suffered a great deal of embarrassment from their multimedia sex scandals.

Jennifer Lopez: J.Lo is currently battling her ex, Ojani Noa over the distribution and subsequent sale of her “intimate home movie”. Noa somehow found a legal loophole, giving the video to his current girlfriend to sell, but Lopez was able to block their move to distribute.

Blake Lively: Nude photos that were obviously Blake Lively were released, and down to the tattoos and freckle, there was no questioning who it was. Lively’s response? “It ain’t me.” I feel for her because it was a complete invasion of privacy, but come on, Blake. That couldn’t be any more you if you were naked on the set of Gossip Girl.

Vanessa Hudgens: She might be a Hollywood newcomer, but when it comes to photo scandals, Hudgens is an old pro. Aside from those photos and High School Musical, I doubt most people are familiar with her career. During her third and most recent round of leaked photos, Hudgens commented on how weird it was that it coincided with the release of her movie, Sucker Punch.

Paris Hilton: Hilton’s sex tape was released early on in her career—right as The Simple Life was beginning. Hilton still feels the backlash from the tape, having recently discussed it in an interview with Piers Morgan. Hilton’s mother, Kathy, cried as Paris said, “I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children. It’s something that changed my life forever.”

Kim Kardashian: Kim suffered the embarrassment over her sex tape publicly but bounced back from it nicely. Kim has become the face of an empire, landed true love, and has a big family around her at all times. We’re not sure she could have it any better. Oh right, there’s that glacier she has on her finger.

Rihanna: Back in 2009, Rihanna had a set of naked photos leaked all over the web. Rihanna was totally unapologetic about taking the photos, which makes us love her even more: “They were for my boyfriend at the time,” she said, adding, “if you don’t send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel bad for him.”

Jessica Alba: That’s right, America’s sweetheart fell victim to some leaked nude photos as well. Millions of men were waiting for this moment, and those men were quickly disappointed to find that the photos were mostly of Jessica’s naked, pregnant belly.

Ashley Greene: The Twilight star had her cell phone photos leaked in 2009. The photos were taken before Green’s rise to stardom. Aspiring actresses, you’re screwed

Get Kate Middleton’s Royal Makeover HOLLYSCOOP EXCLUSIVE!

There’s no denying Kate Middleton’s natural, seemingly fuss-free beauty. She’s got a killer smile, and unless her hair stylist is David Copperfield, her long, thick locks somehow remain naturally 100% frizz-free in Britain’s foggy weather.

But especially over the past few months, the shy, small-town gal has glammed herself up in a royal way.

She dated William on-and-off throughout her twenties, so everyone was able to see how she transformed from a cute, baby-faced girl into a sleek, stylish woman.

Kate has prepped herself for princess, and we’ve put together a few steps that can make you feel a little regal, too.

Make-Up: Keep it simple Kate’s make-up has always been pretty natural. Against all tradition, Kate reportedly refused to have anyone help with her make-up on her wedding day.

Even in her famous engagement pictures, Kate did it all herself.

Make-up artist Julia Bolino says of Kate’s work: “She has a lovely face and good skin and hasn’t changed her style much from her student days, with her dark eyes, lined in black and natural colored lipstick to disguise her slightly thin lips. Her mother, Carole Middleton is a very polished woman and I would say she has been a big influence on Kate’s make-up style, which is very safe, very understated

So if you want to recreate Kate’s look, you won’t need much—blush, natural lipstick, and some eyeliner—just don’t get all Amy Winehouse with it. 

Clothing: Knee length skirt suits are key That see-through dress might’ve nabbed her a prince, but these days, Kate knows to cover up.

She’s come a long way from the knee-high boots and oversized bags she used to don. She still shows off her legs—but never too much. The woman can rock a skirt suit, but she keeps it pretty understated and conservative.

A knee length skirt or dress with a fitted blazer is Kate’s staple style nowadays. The amazing royal blue power suit that she sported on Monday had been hanging in her closet for years—proving everything she wears stands the test of time.

You don’t see her leaving the house with a long, dangling feather in her ear and fur boots on.

Celerity stylist Camilla Ridley Day approves of Kate’s wardrobe choices, but says it does make her look a few years older.

“The buttoned jacket will not reveal the slightest hint of cleavage when stooping to speak to a child — and she’s even wearing a black vest to ensure she doesn’t accidentally expose anything

Kate has to remain a little modest, but the rest of us can forgo the vest—those puppies gotta breathe!

Hair: Stay classic and natural Leave the short, choppy experimenting to Victoria Beckham.

Again, Kate has to keep her look classic so no one looks back at royal photos twenty years from now and says, “what the was she thinking.”

Kate’s lucky to have celebrity stylist Richard Ward on hand, but it’s nothing that can’t be achieved with a sleek blowout. Pull your hair away from your face, find a damn good frizz-fighter, and you’re set.

Etiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith said,”Kate is staying true to her original style, which is very loose and natural, but she is also very much aware that every camera and eye is on her — and an unfortunate photograph of her hair blowing in her face would simply not do

Body Language: Stay poised and approachable ‘There is a definite change in the way Kate is carrying herself, which would imply instruction says body language expert Judi James.

While Kate used to have a spontaneous, carefree cadence, her actions now seem a lot more poised. You’ll never see a photo of Kate slouching with her arms crossed. Even if she’s having a bad day, Kate always looks graceful, and needless to say, her posture is impeccable.

Much like Princess Diana, Kate has a “self-effacing laugh according to James. “She leans back and holds her hands up to her chest, which is another classic ‘people pleaser’ and one used by President Clinton

Another thing to remember: stay toothy—Kate has a wide, genuine smile in nearly every photograph. Her body language says, “talk to me, I’m a total sweetheart So don’t forget to smile. Just make sure you’ve whitened.

You want to show off your pearly whites, not your buttery yellows.

Accessories: Hello, hats! I’m hoping Kate’s very British hats will make a trip to the States soon.

She’s gone from flying saucer to feathered cap, and every one is adorable. Please, Target, get on this!

Other than the hats, Kate carries a variety of little clutches, which help make her look demure and ladylike. Etiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith says the clutch is “almost like a comfort blanket. It gives a lady something to do with her hands Silly me, I’ve just been putting them in my pockets.

Kate might have her own Glam Squad to ease her into the role of Princess, but who wants the responsibility and pressure that comes with that? With just a few adjustments, you can transform into royalty for a day, too.

After you’ve gotten it out of your system, go back to your sweats and slouching.
