In a recent statement, Manolo said: "I was looking the other day, Lara Flynn Boyle in "Twin Peaks" and that other girl Sherilyn Fennóthey're old-school girls like Elizabeth Taylor, and I think that's so fabulous. Then I saw these girls like Sherilyn Fenn and Lara Flynn Boyle that should be working now instead of these anonymous girls. They're all the same. I don't even know Amanda Seyfried or whateveróthey're all the same! I try to remember - the only one I remember is Julia Roberts because she's particular. Anne Hathaway... Pretty? Yes. Wonderful actress? Yes. But, I mean, I don't even remember her. What is it about her?" Burn! Seems like Manolo has definitely lost two clients in Amanda and Anne.

A bright red lip and some subtle jewelry - including black diamond stud earrings (try Meredith Marks' Melissa Diamond Stud Earrings in Silver) and a gold ring on her right hand (check out Jules Smith's Gypsy Stacked Ring in Yellow Gold) - provided the icing on the cake for this ensemble. What's your take on this outfit for AS - love it or lose it? Of the film, Amanda recently opened up about being able to participate in the sensation that is Les Mis, saying: "I knew it was going to do well. I donít know why. I think itís because everybody I know is obsessed with Les Mis. All the actors I know are obsessed with Les Mis, so many people I know have seen it. Itís a phenomenon. Itís a drama musical. Its three hours long. Itís like, ďWhat? Why? French Revolution? Ok, boring.Ē But once you see it, youíre entranced because the music is amazing, the characters are amazing. Listen, Iím very biased. Obviously, if you didnít like it, I totally get it. " For those of you who saw the film, what did you think?

Amanda's goal is $27,000... such a worthy cause!
Amanda Seyfried seen on Dec 02 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA. Amanda Seyfried was as cute as a cupcake at March of Dimesí Celebration of Babies Luncheon that was held at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills on December 2. Amanda joined fellow guests like Jessica Alba for the sophisticated luncheon, and opted for a minimal-chic Calvin Klein Collection dress in a saccharine pink hue. For a similar silhouette, check out Aaron Ashe's Ave Montaigne Dress in Blue, and for something in a similar shade, try Luc by Lucy's One Shoulder Love Dress in Mauve.

Is this a winning or losing ensemble in your eyes, everyone? In case you didn't know, December 3 was the Mamma Mia! actress' 26th birthday! How did AS celebrate her special day, you ask? Well, she proved that fitness is one of her top priorities, as she spent her birthday morning hiking Runyon Canyon in LA with her dog Finn. According to the Daily Mail: "It's no surprise that the actress was out having a stroll, even on her birthday, as whenever she is home in Hollywood she takes Finn out for a walk every single day. But, their stroll was interrupted when Amanda had to stop and sort out her pooch's lead which had got caught up in his leg. When she arrived home, Amanda seemed to be in good spirits as she smiled and waved for the camera. Perhaps it was because she was looking forward to a birthday night out." However she chose to celebrate, I hope she had fun!
Amanda Seyfried seen on Nov 03 2011 in Madrid, Spain. Amanda Seyfried showed up to a photo call for her new film In Time in Madrid, Spain on October 3 in quite the statement-making ensemble.

What are your thoughts on Amanda's look here, readers? One thing is for sure... her gorgeous, glossy locks are taking center stage! In her new sci-fi thriller film with Justin Timberlake, the topic of halting the aging process is a central point. Amanda recently reflected on this fantasy topic, and said: "Sure, I'd like to stop the aging process. Because Iím going to get more and more preoccupied with aging, because we all do. When you spend enough time around people with money, in Beverley Hills or Los Angeles or Hollywood, you see that these people can basically do anything [to stop the aging process], and they will." Naturally, the topic of plastic surgery was next, on which AS said: "I think it becomes a sickness for many people, but itís just like anything, you become addicted. Weíre made to think that beauty lies in young tight skin, and long eyelashes and big lips, and nice breasts. Thatís what is made to be beautiful for us even though itís really not what it should be about. Girls especially where I grew up, weíre see magazines with these beautiful models on the cover, and thereís so many diseases that come from that which are terrible. Thatís why I think the concept is so interesting in this movie Ė because we really are obsessed with that." Very interesting! Do you agree with her point of view?
Amanda Seyfried seen on Sep 22 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA. Spending the day indulging in some retail therapy, Amanda Seyfried hit up Barney's New York in Beverly Hills on September 22. Opting for a cute and conservative look, Amanda paired skinny corduroy pants (such as Free People's Skinny Cord Stretch Pant in Mushroom, or for a more traditional denim with a similar fit, check out Siwy's Hannah Jean in It's Magic) with black flats and a pair of black shades. She then wore a graphic t-shirt (try Chaser's Kramer Live Tee in Gray) under a demure white cardigan (similar to Wit.'s Oxford Cardigan in White). Slightly tousled waves and a pink pout completed Amanda's outfit. Are you a fan? Although it's hard to believe that AS began her acting career (save for stints on "All My Children" and "As The World Turns") alongside Lindsay Lohan back in 2004's Mean Girl, the talented actress has appeared in a number of successful projects such as Mamma Mia! and Letters to Juliet. Which big screen film was her favorite, though? You might be surprised to hear that it was her role alongside Megan Fox in 2009's Jennifer's Body! Although the film wasn't very successful, Amanda says: "'Jenniferís Body' is my favorite movie that Iíve done. It was overlooked in theaters, but it does have a DVD following. I canít believe nobody wanted to see Megan Fox and me hitting it. For a young girl to say that about her own sex scene it must be because itís special. I think Megan and I kissed really well together. We have similar kissing styles and it worked. We got it done for the masses, and the masses still didnít show up." Well there you have it!
Amanda Seyfried seen on Jun 20 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Amanda Seyfried was photographed in a parking garage after a quick shopping spree at the Burberry store in LA on June 20, along with her ex-boyfriend and Mamma Mia! co-star Dominic Cooper. I wonder if these two are rekindling their flame now that Amanda and Ryan Phillippe are dunzo? Allegedly, A & R's split was mutual, as a source told Us Weekly that "they were always on and off. Thereís no bad blood. Theyíre cool." This seems to be a pattern for Amanda, she's always seemed to remain close with Dominic. Do you think that the former co-stars should give it another go? For her shopping ensemble, AS paired a chic pair of skinny trousers (like Allegra Hicks' Cigarette Trouser in Grey) with a classic black tank (take your pick between C&C California's Classic Tank in Black or Hard Tail's Lyrca Tear Drop Tank in Black), and toted along an enviable Chanel bag. A pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers and black patent pumps polished off Amanda's outfit. Thoughts?
