All the single ladies, put your hands up ... and prepare to be envious.

A little over two months after giving birth to her baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter, a smiling Beyonce stepped out last night and she looks ... wow. Just wow.

The singer got dolled up for a fundraising event for President Obama - the same one that drew headlines for Robert De Niro's "White First Lady" joke.

There was no controversy about this, though: She looked awesome!

  • Beyonce Post-Baby Body

Bey wore a snug navy dress by Victoria Beckham, sky-high heels and some dazzling bling (including a diamond-encrusted eagle) with her hair in a simple ponytail.

So what was Beyonce doing right in terms of new mom style?

"When you think of the things women dislike about themselves, the majority don't like their upper arms and also have skirt-length issues," one stylist told MTV.

"She's addressed both of these. It's an interesting choice because it's snug, not tight. There's a distinction between the two. It's body-flattering, for sure."

For sure.

Paula Deen's fans noticed something different about her at the 2012 South Beach Wine and Food Festival in Miami on Sunday: She's looking noticeably thinner.

The Queen of Southern cooking, who was recently criticized after she revealed she's had Type 2 Diabetes for three years, says she's already shed two sizes.

"I've dropped two pant sizes and I feel great!" Deen, 65, said, crediting a health regime that includes walking 30 minutes a day and eating smaller portions.

Paula Deen Losing Weight?

Deen hosted a brunch that included a menu of fried chicken, waffles, jambalaya cooked by her husband and a strawberry margarita mousse prepped by Robert Irvine.

She told fans during her cooking demo that she isn't sure what she weighs.

"We don't own a scale in our house," she says. "Every six months I go for a physical and find out. Now it's time to see the doctor. She'll be happy if I've lost weight."

Both the cook and her family are pleased with results.

"Doesn't she look nice?" son Bobby said. "She has a little more pep in her step now. She'd been guilty of being a little too sedentary – like a lot of people."

Deen told fans, "It's amazing how good getting up and moving makes you feel."

Jim Rash posing like Angelina Jolie was a highlight of Oscar night. But it was far from the only Jolie-related subject to be buzzed-about Sunday and today.

The star's weight has become a hot topic after she exercised her right to bare arms while presenting an award at the year's top Hollywood extravaganza.

Rash may have been expressing affection for Jolie with his mock pose, but many fans have been less kind. Watch the clip of the actress and tell us below ...

Is Angelina Jolie too thin??

Star’s cover story this week is all about Angelina Jolie and how she’s down to an emaciated 99 pounds due to shooting up heroin like a fiend apparently.

Three separate reasons this is ridiculous:

  1. The magazine proclaimed Brad Pitt got Angelina Jolie pregnant not even a month ago. Guess that didn't pan out, given the image below?
  2. The cover photo of the star is hilariously Photoshopped to the point where her head and body don't even look proportional any longer.
  3. She looked slender, but healthy THIS WEEKEND.
Angelina Jolie Wasting Away!

While the 36-year-old actress is clearly thin, she's not anorexic. Her upper arms have some flesh on them, her cheeks look full enough, and so on.

Star's claim that the 5'7" actress weight has plummeted to 99 pounds seems full-on absurd, but that's their claim, citing the good ol' anonymous source:

“Angie has gotten so skinny and frail, Brad thinks she needs professional help,” the source said, adding that Brad staged an “intervention,” to get her help.

“Her face looks sunken. On the red carpet, her arms look like twigs.”

Uh huh. “Brad is really concerned with her eating habits,” the source adds. “She’s existing on cereal bars and smoothies and slipped to just 99 pounds."

"She is so thin yet will still go on a carrot-juice fast for days. Brad leaves food out all over the place hoping she’ll snack.” LOL. Sorry, we can't take anymore.

Just for fun, check out Star's cover from almost exactly a year ago after the jump. Must be something about Angelina Jolie this time of year ...

We knew Jack Donaghy looked sharper in a suit this season on 30 Rock.

Backstage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, Alec Baldwin told Access Hollywood he was diagnosed with diabetes in May 2011 and proceeded to lose about 30 pounds in four months. His trick?

"I gave up sugar," the actor said, adding that "I do Pilates and spin... When we're shooting and I can't work out, I just have to eat less. So I'm very conscious of that."

  • Alec Baldwin on Letterman
  • A Trim Alec Baldwin

Baldwin - who took home the trophy for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series at the event  - is actually dating a yoga instructor named Hilaria Thomas, but says the two of them rarely practice her trade together often.

The best news, of course? Baldwin's slimmer figure has not resulted in any less hilarious 30 Rocks quotes this year.

Also, he should probably live longer as a result of the diet.

Just months after giving birth to baby daughter Harper Seven, Victoria Beckham is once again ready for her close-up. In lingerie. Anybody out there complaining?

Don't. The 37-year-old erstwhile Spice Girl showed off her extremely slender body in a belted white Rochas corset piece in Numéro Tokyo's March issue.

Check out the Victoria Beckham photos below:

Despite her successful marriage (she and David Beckham now have four young kids together), she says he's never been to one of her many fashion shows.

"David has never been to any of my shows as I'm incredibly nervous and I need to focus and concentrate," the Victoria Beckham Collection CEO confessed.

As for her rapid weight loss?

"Oh, listen, I worked at it," she told Elle. "I was breast-feeding, so I ate super healthy, and I worked out seven days a week. I wanted to burn all my leggings."

"I was adamant that by the time I went to Fashion Week [seven weeks after giving birth] I would be able to wear regular clothes again."

Looks like she succeeded ... to our benefit.

We can respect Kevin Federline for working out so hard to lose weight that he passes out, but he may want to scale back, having been hospitalized twice now.

The ex-Mr. Britney Spears was rushed to the hospital a SECOND TIME since filming Excess Baggage, an amusingly-named Australian Celebrity Fit Club spinoff.

Apparently he was in the midst of an AFL training session with the Greater Western Sydney Giants on Monday afternoon when he complained of chest pains.

Over-Fed

A spokesperson for the network airing the show said:

"Kevin was at Doonside with the [Giants], completing an AFL-related challenge. He did his challenge, which was running and catching the ball, then while his [in-series weight-loss partner] was taking the same challenge, he reported chest pains and a racing heart."

"We have a lot of paramedics on standby and they treated him for the first signs of a minor cardiac arrest, called an ambulance and had him taken to hospital."

Fortunately, tests revealed he did not have a heart attack.

Still, don't fight the good fight too hard, Kev.

Jennifer Hudson doesn't merely cover the latest issue of Good Housekeeping - the Oscar winner looks darn good while doing so!

The former American Idol finalist has incredibly lost 80 pounds, and she says her son doesn't even recognize his own mother when looking at photos or clips of her former self.

“What’s funny is that he’s never known me overweight," Hudson tells the magazine. "If he sees a clip of the old Jennifer from Dreamgirls, he doesn’t know who it is.”

Hudson says she doesn't torture herself to remain skinny, though. One has to cheat to maintain sanity.

“I’ll find a calm, peaceful moment, and I’ll sit back and eat my chocolate, which I make sure is really good quality, too," she says, adding this piece of advice: "Quality over quantity!”

The women of The Bachelorette? Not unattractive.

With a new season of The Bachelor underway, it's only fitting, sort of, that three well-known cast members who went on to dole out the roses themselves cover In Touch Weekly, baring their bikini bodies and sharing their weight loss plans and tips.

Okay, it makes no sense. But who's complaining?

Ashley Hebert, who dispatched current Bachelor Ben Flajnik last summer, is prepping for her wedding to JP Rosenbaum with a low-carb diet. Sounds amazing.

Ali Fedotowsky, now single and ready to mingle after calling off her engagement to Roberto Martinez, is targeting thigh and butt jiggle. It looks well targeted.

Trista Sutter, the standard bearer for successful relationships spawned by a nonsensical reality show, still looks amazing - yet is contemplating a boob job.

Not that she needs it and not that you can believe anything you read in In Touch, but that's all we've got for now. Just sit back and enjoy the bikini photos.

Kirstie Alley has lost 100 pounds since her peak weight. That's amazing.

But how does the Dancing With the Stars finalist plan on keeping it off?

On New Year’s Day, Alley launched 100 Days of Dance, a program in which she encourages people to dance for 100 consecutive days in order to lose weight or stay fit.

"I want everyone to experience some version of Dancing with the Stars," says Alley, 60. "People don't have to do monotonous, zombie workouts that are boring."

"Dancing is free and you can do it anywhere and any time."

The actress, now a size 6 and 130 lbs., says she backs up her big talk, staying fit by dancing 1-2 hours a day and following the diet plan Organic Liason.

She'll post videos of herself dancing on the site for 100 days starting on Sunday and she hopes to spotlight exotic locales with special guests along the way.
