How Celebs Celebrated the Christmas Holiday

We all have our favorite holiday traditions, and it’s not different for celebrities. Learn how a few of our favorite stars opted to ring in the holiday season!


Rachel Zoe spent Christmas Eve in a hospital bed but didn't forget to share her exciting news about her latest family addition with her fans. It's a little bananas how fantastic she looks post-birth, but she is Rachel Zoe after all … so we'll let that go.  

According to Instagram, many of you enjoyed some holiday baking in preparation for Christmas Day. Taylor Swift and her best friend, Hailee Steinfeld, also posted their adorable baked creations on the photo-sharing site. The two best friends spent the day baking and frosting Christmas cookies, making Christmas cards, and decorating the tree. Taylor, 24, captioned a picture of Hailee, 17, posing adorably next to a plate of frosted cookies, “It’s not possible for her to be cuter or for this day to be more festive […] Merry Swiftmas and Hailee New Year.”

Jessica Alba had some fun in Christmas jammies the day after Christmas with her husband Cash Warren, and friends Jamie King and Kyle Newman who welcomed their first child in October. 

Visitors to Matthew McConaughey’s home during Christmas hopefully brought their appetites, because the family who cooks together stays together! The Magic Mike actor and father of three told E! that one of their main holiday traditions is cooking—a lot. “I do a lot of cooking … we all cook.” He shares the kitchen duties with his wife, Camila Alves, sons Levi and Livingston, and daughter Vida. In addition to the yummy baking and cooking, the McConaughey-Alvas family watch their fair share of pigskin (McConaughey is a huge Texas Longhorns fan!). Christmas Day has another special memory for the couple; Matthew asked Camila to marry him on Christmas Day, and of course, we know she said yes!

If you’re like me, your walls (or mantle or shelves) are covered with holiday cards from friends and family across the country. Holiday cards are a big deal for us “regular folk,” but celebrities take it to another level! The Kardashians are known for their over-the-top Christmas card photos. They’ve been at it for 11 years, and they are just getting more outrageous! The latest bizarre Christmas card incarnation was orchestrated by Kim’s fiancé, Kanye West.

This year, Sean Diddy Combs also got into the holiday spirit and posed in his holiday finest with his six children: daughters Jessie, D’Lila, and Chance and sons Justin, Christian, and Quincy.

Howard Stern and wife Beth Ostrosky Stern took a rather non-traditional route. On the front of their card, Beth dresses as Santa while Howard rocks a long black wig, red lipstick, and heels as a sexy Mrs. Claus.
