When describing Vanessa Minnillo, drop-dead gorgeous doesn’t begin to cover it. She’s a former Miss Teen USA and got her break hosting Total Request Live on MTV and doing New York-based correspondent work for Entertainment Tonight. A military “brat” (dad is American of Italian and Irish descent and mom is Filipino), she moved around a lot before finally settling in South Carolina, where she represented the state in the Miss Teen USA pageant. It comes as no surprise that Maxim magazine listed Minnillo as #15 on its Hot 100 list. Her more recent headlines are the result of being Nick Lachey’s main squeeze with their on / off / on-again relationship. She is uber chic in these Tom Ford shades which come in six stylish frame hues. Is it just us, or did Nick aim to go polar opposite from his ex, Jessica Simpson, when he snagged Vanessa? Smart man.
