Date of Birth: June 10, 1992

Born: St. Joseph, Michigan

Occupation: Model, actress

Children: 1

media3.s-nbcnews.com

She's one of today's most sought-after models and this year became a new mom. Kate Upton defines today's taste for something other than rail-thin models and takes her position as role model to heart. Seemingly down-to-earth despite her larger-than-life status, Upton is equal parts girl next door and sex symbol. Whether she's rockin' a bikini on the pages of Sports Illustrated or rocking her newborn to sleep, the Michigan native does it beautifully. Here's more about the model/actress and why fans are head-over-heels for the 5'10" stunner.

Posing Perfectly

blogs-images.forbes.com

Upton is best known for her modeling work. Her gigs are some of the grandest and her face (and figure) have been splashed across the pages of countless magazines. From Guess to Victoria's Secret to David Yurman, the biggest brands choose Upton to represent their goods. As for magazines? Flip through the pages of Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle, and others and you're sure to find Upton staring back at you. And the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue catapulted Upton into the stratosphere when she was featured in 2011, '12, '13, and '17. A three-time cover model for the mag, Upton's look evidently sells.

Seeing Upton on screen may be even more exciting than photos alone. Catch her in films including Tower Heist, The Other Woman, The Layover, and Wild Man. Good looks paired with a knack for acting is silver screen gold. Look out Cameron!

Fergie

All you need to know.

Full Name: Stacy Ann Ferguson

Date of Birth: March 27, 1975

Born: Hacienda Heights, CA

Occupation: Singer, songwriter, actress, TV personality

Status: Separated from Josh Duhamel (married 2009)

Children: 1

www.bravotv.com

From her start on the small screen to her solo singing career, Fergie is multi-talented and was made for the spotlight. Unique and creative, Fergie dares to be different, stepping out of the box while others try to fit in. She's entertaining and uplifting, always cool and carefree. Here's more about the celebrity and her rise in the business, where she's still holding her own.

Family-Friendly Television

fanfest.com

From an early start, Fergie (then known as Stacy), was a hit on TV's Kids Incorporated. The music-centric variety show was a hit in the early-'80s, and Fergie was a fan favorite. Of the show's nine seasons on air, Fergie was featured in six, making her the longest running cast member. With her adorable look and personality, Fergie kept kids glued to their sets – the same kids who'd grow up following her career.

Wild Child

alchetron.com

From 1990-2003, Fergie was a member of the girl group Wild Orchid. They wrote most of their music, performed tirelessly, and made a name for themselves in the industry. With four studio albums, one compilation, Hot 100-reaching singles, Billboard nominations, and a slew of music videos, the ladies had a good run. Soon after their split, Fergie set her sights on a new group…

Black Eyed Peas, Please

digitalspyuk.cdnds.net

The Black Eyed Peas were already going strong when Fergie joined them. Their uncommon blend and unmatched imaginativeness makes the group one of today's greatest, and Fergie fit right in. "Where Is the Love," "I Gotta Feeling," "Boom Boom Pow," "Let's Get It Started, " and "Hey Mama," are only a handful of the group's hits. Super successful and constantly cool, The Black Eyed Peas never fail to impress.

Going Solo

www.etonline.com

Fergie's voice is so powerful and her presence so strong that embarking on a solo career only made sense. She has the talent to go it alone, and fans couldn't agree more. From "Big Girls Don't Cry" to "Fergalicious," to "M.I.L.F. $," Fergie's songs run from the emotional to the purely entertaining. She puts on a show-stopping concert and pours her heart out whether on stage or in the studio.

Splitsville

www.usmagazine.com

Fergie married actor Josh Duhamel in 2009. They met on set of his television show, Las Vegas, a few years earlier and have one child together. Last year, the couple announced their separation, but there's no word whether they've officially divorced. Perhaps this leaves room for a reconciliation. When it comes to Hollywood relationships, anything can happen.

Fergie's in Fashion

Dressing simply is simply against Fergie's sense of style. Eclectic and edgy, she never fails to look fashionable, although many of her looks are not for everyone. Check out the star in some of her most "Fergalicious" fashion moments in the slideshow below.

Kourtney Kardashian

All you need to know.

Full Name: Kourtney Mary Kardashian

Date of Birth: April 18, 1979

Born: Los Angeles, California

Occupation: Reality TV star, model, businesswoman

Status: Single

Children: 3

timedotcom.files.wordpress.com

As the eldest Kardashian sister, Kourtney Kardashian takes the role to heart. She is serious and silly at the same time, attempting to keep the family as grounded as possible as they live their lives for all the world to see. A mom of three, she puts motherhood before all else and always tries to keep her "baby daddy" in line, you know, for the sake of the kids. Gorgeous and given some of the best opportunities in life, it seems like Kardashian is living the dream. At 39, she's hotter than ever and "keeping up" with her always busy, always broadcasting family. Here's a bit more about the reality star and why fans can't stop tuning in.

Reality…In Ridiculous Amounts

hips.hearstapps.com

15, count 'em…15!!! seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians have been blasting into our living rooms since we can remember. Some consider the family "famous for being famous," but if you watch the show, they works hard to achieve their A-list statuses. Kardashian is busy with not only work and filming, but raising her kids. And we watch the little ones too. From regular seasons to spin-offs, the Kardashian franchise is on fire with no signs of anyone putting it out. "Momager" Kris Jenner wouldn't have it any other way.

Mama Mia!

celebpix.net

Kardashian loves being a mom. She has even hinted that she may want another. Her three kids are simply adorable and have grown up in the spotlight. Their dad, Scott Disick, has been on the show for years, and while they're no longer a couple, they co-parent and co-exist. Perhaps the two will give it another try someday, but until Kardashian is sure Disick won't go back to his "playboy" partying ways, she'd rather date (much younger) guys like Luka Sabbat and Younes Bendjima. Call her a cougar, but Kardashian won't be caged!

Healthy and Happy

Kardashian keeps herself in shape and pays attention to what she eats. She maintains a dairy-free, organic diet, banning artificial ingredients, etc. One look at her enviable figure and it's obvious her hard work and dedication is paying off. Here are some pics of the reality rock star, proving that pushing 40 is nothing like it used to be.

Number One

fortunedotcom.files.wordpress.com

As the first American Idol winner in 2002, Clarkson will forever be remembered as a groundbreaker. Her moment to shine turned into "A Moment Like This," and ever since, Clarkson was a fan favorite. With a voice so passionate and powerful, America knew Clarkson was headed for stardom. She was signed to RCA, and ever since, she has been churning out hit after hit.


Pop-Rockin' It Out

media.al.com

Clarkson initially gave off that girl-next-door vibe, but as a new-to-the-scene celeb, she soon wanted to shake things up. She changed her look from "squeaky clean" to something a bit edgier, and her songs reflected her sense of independence and integrity. Songs like "Since U Been Gone" and "My Life Would Suck Without You" became anthems for her fans, proving Clarkson could do no wrong when it came to her music. Soon came the Grammy awards and further accolades.

The Voice...on The Voice

Now Clarkson is turning the tables…or the chairs in this case, as a team leader/coach/judge on The Voice. With her background as a TV winner-turned-superstar, the young up-and-comers are privileged to have Clarkson show them the way. She's honest and kind, constructive and creative. It must be a thrill for her to have come this far, where she's the one calling the shots.

Gwyneth Paltrow

All you need to know.

Full Name: Gwyneth Kate Paltrow

Date of Birth: September 27, 1972

Born: Los Angeles, CA

Occupation: Actress, singer, writer, business woman, lifestyle expert

Status: Married to Brad Falchuk (2018)

Children: 2

timedotcom.files.wordpress.com

She's an award-winning actress, the goddess of Goop, and a newlywed. From her on-screen success to her leap into lifestyle and luxury, Gwyneth Paltrow pushes her passion to its peak and gives her all to all she does. Once married to rocker Chris Martin for 13 years, their divorce in 2016 put Paltrow "on the market," and earlier this year she tied the knot again, blending families and building a future. Goop may not be everyone's go-to guide, but fans far and wide love a good Paltrow film. Here's more to know about the California native and what has kept her in the public eye for such a long time.

A Start in Showbiz

nyppagesix.files.wordpress.com

Paltrow comes from a Hollywood family. Her mom, Blythe Danner, is a long-time actress and her late dad, Bruce Paltrow, was a film director and producer. Perhaps her genes were already gifted with talent or she picked it up from her parents, but Paltrow set her sights towards the silver screen.

Movie Magic

static-35.sinclairstoryline.com

Paltrow illuminates the screen with her elegance and ease, good looks, and top-notch talent. She has been on the A-list for decades and for good reason…she's a hit-maker. Blockbusters and high-earning films often have Paltrow's name listed on the credits, making her a go-to gal for casting. From Great Expectations to Seven to Iron Man to The Avengers, Paltrow's performances always aim to please and she delivers.

The Scoop on Goop

www.gannett-cdn.com

Acting isn't all Paltrow is interested in. Her lifestyle website, Goop, offers advice, sells goods, serves up recipes, and then some. It has been criticized for being too high-brow and high-priced, but Paltrow stands by her philosophies and favorite things.

Paltrow Perfection

Along with her other endeavors, Paltrow makes for the perfect photo. She has modeled for Estée Lauder and Coach, and when she's on the red carpet, her beauty turns heads. Here are some photos of Paltrow looking Hollywood hot.
