Ivanka Trump (Splash News)Let’s be honest, Ivanka Trump could probably afford to call a toy store, order one of everything, and have it delivered to her swanky 10-room Manhattan home for her daughter, Arabella Rose. And seeing as the businesswoman’s schedule doesn’t allow her all that much free time – when she’s not overseeing development and acquisitions for her father’s real estate company, the Trump Organization, she’s working on her eponymous fashion and lifestyle brand, and filming “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” – that would almost make sense. But the 31-year-old mom is taking a more hands-on approach.Read More »from Ivanka Trump Takes Daughter Arabella on a Toy Store Shopping Spree for the Holidays

The holiday season just isn't complete without the smell of fresh pine, a mug of eggnog, and ... the Kardashian Christmas card.
Kim Kardashian tweeted out her family's annual holiday greeting card and, as usual, the photo shoot was a high-production affair. And there was confetti — lots of confetti. There were balloons and champagne flutes, too.Read More »from 2012 Kardashian Christmas Card: Did Kanye West Make the Cut?

"Glee" star Darren Criss works at a frenzied pace, but he was insistent that he make room in his schedule for one very special NYC gig last Sunday. For the third year in a row, the 25-year-old performed Christmas songs at a show benefitting Toys for Tots, a program that makes sure less fortunate children have a gift to open this holiday season. "I just flew in like maybe two, three hours ago, and I have to leave in probably less than an hour to get back to L.A.," Criss told omg! after the show. "It's really important to me that I can be a part of it."Read More »from Darren Criss’ Holiday Tradition of Giving

Perri at the Breaking Dawn -- Part 2 premiere. (Albert L. Ortega/Getty Images)Was Christina Perri Santa Claus in a former life? The singer, probably best known for her hit song "A Thousand Years" from "Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 1," is so Christmas-obsessed, she has more than 300 holiday songs on her iTunes. So it would make sense that she recently released an album of her favorite tracks, A Very Merry Perri Christmas. Although she initially thought the hardest part would be selecting which ones to record — "because I'm such a giant Christmas freak" — once Perri made a list of her top five songs, it was easier than washing down a plate of cookies with milk.Read More »from Christina Perri: ‘I’m Such a Giant Christmas Freak’

How many Victoria's Secret models does it take to croon a Christmas carol correctly? More than seven, apparently.
Donning sheer red lingerie ensembles complete with Santa-style white trim (a holiday wardrobe staple for every woman!), a gaggle of svelte supermodels sing a bumbling version of the classic carol "Deck the Halls" in a new Victoria's Secret commercial that gives viewers an inside peek at a few bloopers not left on the cutting room floor.Read More »from Victoria’s Secret Models Mangle ‘Deck the Halls’
Tom Cruise (Getty Images)Tom Cruise is going to have a very Suri Christmas.
Making his first red carpet appearance since his quickie divorce from Katie Holmes over the summer, the 50-year-old actor shared his holiday plans with reporters at the London premiere of his crime thriller, "Jack Reacher," on Monday night. And even though his custody arrangement with Holmes, 33, allowed him to have Suri for Thanksgiving, the 6-year-old will be spending Christmas with him as well — as will his two older children from his marriage to Nicole Kidman: Connor, 17, and Bella, 20.Read More »from What Tom Cruise Has Planned for Christmas

Mario Lopez (Twitter)Mario Lopez has made a career out of flashing his toned frame — from back when he played A.C. Slater on "Saved By the Bell" to today as the pitchman for his own underwear lines. So we can't say we're all that surprised to learn that he decorated his family Christmas tree in his skivvies.
His new bride Courtney Mazza didn't seem to embarrass the confident "Extra" and "X Factor" host at all by posting a photo of him, in itty bitty red briefs, standing on a ladder while adjusting the star on the very tall tree in their Los Angeles home.Read More »from Mario Lopez Decorates the Family Christmas Tree – in His Undies!

The holidays aren't only about Christmas! Stars such as David Arquette and Zooey Deschanel are celebrating the Jewish festival of lights, Hanukkah, which began on December 8 and continues through December 16.
Arquette, 41, lit a giant ice sculpture of a menorah — that's 10-feet tall and made with 800 pounds of ice! — on Sunday, the second night of Hanukkah, at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. The "Scream" actor appeared with Rabbi Cunin of Chabad of California, a non-profit organization that provides drug and alcohol prevention and rehabilitation for at-risk youth, and all kinds of support for the needy.Read More »from Stars Celebrate Hanukkah By Lighting the Menorah
