The 25 Hottest Actors Under 35

What do This Christmas, Fast and Furious and Stomp The Yard all have in common? Fine, half-naked men.

Show us a great movie and we’ll show you the fine actor that starred in it. Every Vixen wanted to find their own Lance Sullivan (minus the cheating) in The Best Man, and when we learned of Derwin's departure from The Game, it crushed women everywhere. Outside of their great acting abilities, they are also very (very!) easy on the eyes. They have bodies and faces like gods, and their characters are the perfectly-flawed men women would kill to find.

Fellas (ahem, gentlemen), whether you're a triple threat like Tyrese with many movies and shows under your belt, or you’re a new on our radar like Jay Ellis, we want you to know we’ve taken notice of your hotness. We’ve given love to the rappers and the athletes but we have yet to give love to the men that act their ways to our hearts.

Take a look at our list of 25 under 35.

chadwick25. Chadwick Boseman

Hardworking is second nature to the Jackie Robinson look-a-like as he's already prepping his next film Draft Day. So Vixens, it won't be long before we catch this beau on our screens again.

Evan Ross
24. Evan Ross

The slick talking young boy in ATL has turned into this smooth-looking grown man. Ladies, are you ready to see him in the TLC biopic as Chili's baby daddy Dallas Austin?

Chris Evans

23. Chris Evans

He's tall, fit, and has no fear of saving the world for us (see: Captain America and Fantastic Four). And, the versatile actor doesn't mind making a fool of himself just to see any lady smile.

Nick Cannon

22. Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon grabs our attention by what he does more than his looks. His savvy business tactics have us wanting more of the funnyman. Part ownership of Nickelodeon, producing TV shows and being married to a musical legend make him a certified banger.

Damon Wayans Jr

21. Damon Wayans Jr.

Unlike (all one million of) his cousins--who are trying to find their lane in the entertainment out of the family's famous first generation--Damon has been making his own career in his comedy show Happy Endings.

Any guy that’s easy on the eyes and can make us laugh is a plus in our book.

Joseph Levitt20. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a veteran in the entertainment industry (he started acting professionally at age 6). It's been a pleasure seeing this adorable kid turn into a handsome man. Whether he's acting or starting his own online production company, for this all-grown-up cutie, the sky's the limit.

Eric West

19. Eric West

Cosmopolitan may peg him as "the hottest actor to watch in 2013," but he's been on our radar since 2011. It's hard not to stop and stare at this gorgeous guy whose entire demeanor is alluring. Vixens, get ready to see more of him in his sketch show on MTV called Blogger Girls.

Tristan Wilds18. Tristan Wilds

Tristan's smile drives us wild (see above). The 23-year-old actor is putting all his talents to work as he dabbles with his music career and being a attention-grabbing lead in 90210.

CHace Crawford

17. Chace Crawford

One of the stars of the hit CW show Gossip Girls is someone worth gossiping about. We aren't sure if it's his eyes or his smile, but there is something about Chase Crawford that keeps us wanting to see more. Catch him in his next film, Responsible Adults.

Tyler Lepley
16. Tyler Lepley

Say hello to Tyler Lepley. He's new to the acting world but he's coming full force with silver screen feature Baggage Claim and TV show The Have and The Have Nots. As attractive as he is, I'm pretty sure he will have no problem making fans.

Ryan Gosling

15. Ryan Gosling

“We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you.” That line alone solidified our love for Ryan. His character Noah fought for his love in the Notebook and made us fall for him in real life. It doesn’t hurt that Gosling is easy on the eyes. Photoshopped, much?

Kevin Phillips14. Kevin Phillips

We first got hip to this sexy guy in Queen Latifah's movie The Cookout. He's the sexiest flier in Red Tails and the best eye candy as a swimmer in Pride. Period.

Micheal b Jordan13. Michael B. Jordan

We've been wondering if the B in Michael B. Jordan stands for beautiful, because that's the best way to describe this actor. As is our love for him, his acting résumé is long and growing. His upcoming movie title asks Are We Officially Dating?, and if it's up to us, the answer is yes!

James Franco12. James Franco

One of the few men that can rock either a scruffy or clean cut and looks like a fresh spring day. Whether he’s playing a hiker who has to amputate his own limbs or a pothead on a funny adventure to save his life, the only thing that supersedes his impeccable talent is his irresistibly good looks. 2013 will definitely be James’ year as he’s playing Hugh Hefner in Lovelace -- why didn't we get into acting, again?

Chad Michael Murray11. Chad Michael MurrayOne Tree Hill's sexiest athlete was Chad Michael Murray. We don't remember why we started watching the hit WB show, but we do know once we caught a glimpse of him on the screen, we were instant fans. Murray fans can catch him in Tyler Perry's Madea's Christmas due later this year.

Lee Thompson Young

10. Lee Thompson Young

Jett Jackson a.k.a. Lee Thompson Young has come a long way from our TV crush on Disney. The all-grown-up actor is still fighting bad boys (minus the super powers) on TNT's Rizzoli and Isle. A man with a badge never looked this fine.

Terrence J

9. Terrence J

We can give you 99 reasons why we love Terrence Jenkins (a.k.a. Terrence J). He moved from NYC's 106 & Park to pop a squat on E!. And in the middle of his two major hosting moves, he starred in quite a bit of movies. The best part? He got sexier as he worked his way to the top as an actor. We love his hustle and we adore his looks!

Tyrese8. Tyrese

He’s turning into the modern-day renaissance man. He’s a singer, actor, writer and Twitter motivational speaker. Starring in two of the best franchise action thrillers (Fast and Furious and Transformers), he’s a smart businessman as well. Despite how big of an actor he is becoming, he will forever be Jodi in our book.

 Matt Bomer

7. Matt Bomer

If we were trying to cast a face of Christian Grey from 50 Shades of Grey, Matt Bomer is the actor we'd love on the big screen. Our wish may come true since casting directors have him in the running for the part. The White Collar actor captivates us with his eyes then seals the deal with his three-piece suits. Swoon!

jesse-williams6. Jesse Williams

Our fingers are crossed that our next doctor looks like him, even if he only plays one on Grey’s Anatomy. Every Vixen loves a man who’s intelligent and knows the ways around the female body.

Romeo Miller

5. Romeo Miller

It’s okay to look. He is fine... and legal.

Romeo has come a long way from the Lil Romeo Show. Besides being a rapper, he’s an athlete and actor with a lot of potential in the entertainment world. If they have us casting for a fine lead with a body the ladies won’t be able to stop looking at, he would be cast in ALL our films.

Jay Ellis

4. Jay Ellis

He’s gaining his fame as one of the newest characters on BET’s The Game. His TV love interest may be our cover Vixen Lauren London but we have got our eye on those two. Seriously, we couldn’t help but get lost between in his abs and his smile.

COLUMBUS SHORT

3. Columbus Short

He caught our attention when he played hard-headed DJ in Stomp the Yard. Now as Harrison, the take-no-mess gladiator in Scandal, he’s completely stolen our hearts. Through his various characters, he’s shown us that he’s hard working, buff, will fight for his lady and looks good while doing it. Sorry Olivia, but if we have a problem we need solved, we're hoping Harrison is the guy that saves our day!

Channing Tatum

2. Channing Tatum

Any man willing to do a movie about being a male dancer is a winner in our books. We know we can’t have this married father but that doesn’t stop us from having an on-screen romance with him.

Lance Gross

1. Lance Gross

No matter your preference, you can’t deny he’s extremely easy on the eyes with a pretty captivating smile. He has a gorgeous face with body to match; that alone is tempting enough to make us go absolutely nowhere. Be sure to catch him in his new show The Crisis this fall.

LaQuan Smith On How A Confident Nature Bloomed His Fall/Winter Collection

New York's Spring Studios may have been dripped in white backdrops during NYFW, but the flavor was anything but bland during LaQuan Smith's Fall/Winter 2020 show. Presented alongside the launch of the new Moët & Chandon Limited-Edition Signature bottlings, the edgy but benevolent designer presented all-black looks that would make any fast fashion soldier switch over to the luxurious side.

Puffer jackets with skirts to match arrived down the runaway with baggy tracksuits, giving the audience an array of looks for the cozy girl all the way down to the trendy posh woman. Speaking with VIBE backstage, Smith shared how the importance of confident women inspired his recent unveiling. "I just wanted to do something that was super confident and really progressive," he explained. "I think that I have a really true sense of who my woman is at this point so right now I'm really having fun being able to design for a woman who is super comfortable in her own skin. This strong sense of elegance, glamour, and confidence is like the woman that I'm designing for so that was sort of the mood and the attitude for this season's collection."

The conscious mix of a free spirit and earnest attitude is something Smith has conjured since his early days on the scene. After making his NYFW debut in 2010, Smith has attracted the biggest names in entertainment on the runway like Rihanna, Cassie, Serena Williams, Nicki Minaj and recently supermodel Winnie Harlow. With such dominating and powerful women in Smith's orbit, it makes it easy to see just how spot-on his looks are.

But famous ladies aren't Smith's only muses. His show consisted of women of color—specifically Sudanese and Asian models, which made a big splash on social media. There was also a plus-size model who rocked the hell out of a little black dress.

"I'm inspired by a woman who appreciates getting dressed up in the day," Smith added. "Not even having a reason to dress up, just 'Yes!' Just 2 o'clock in the afternoon. I'm really about somebody who just enjoys the thrill of dressing up." But Smith's goal at the end of the day is to bring back chic demeanor of yesterday, where fashionistas would dress to the nines on Casual Fridays.

"I want to revive those moments again where women would wear skirt suits during the day to go to work," he said while pointing to his boiled wool jackets and matching pencil skirts. "They can transition from day to evening. I want to be able to bring back that level of glamour from an American perspective because I'm from New York City and this is the city that made me, this is the city that inspired me so for me to just be able to design and create off of all of my inspirations and my upbringing is a thrill."

Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It" closed the show but the celebratory vibes continued with guests like Tinashe, Delilah Hamlin, Amelia Hamlin, ASAP Ferg and Renell Medrano, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Young Paris, Patrick Starr, and Cyn Santana enjoying Moët & Chandon.

Jump-Start Your Dove Body Wash Spa Day With These 14 Self-Care Jams

When was the last time you enjoyed a spa day? Dove has allowed you to come up with one sooner than later thanks to their newly formulated body washes.

Introduced to retailers last week, the beauty brand's latest body washes contain "Moisture Renew Blend," a gathering of skin-natural nutrients that help revive and maintain the skin's moisture barrier. Because many of us lose lipids during shower/bath time, the new formula makes room for an enhanced blend of stearic and palmitic acids to better mimic what is naturally found in the skin.

The beauty enthusiasts and natural lovers out there will be thrilled to know the product was made with 100 percent gentle naturally-derived cleansers (Glycinate and DEFI), free of sulfates and parabens, and pH balanced.

With 14 new variants and Valentine's Day around the corner, it's only right to plan ahead for a focused day of self-care. Below is a playlist supporting each new scent. From Ari Lennox's "Shea Butter Baby" painting a theme for the Pampering Body Wash Shea Butter & Warm Vanilla to D'Angelo's "Alright" absorbing the vibe of the Sensitive Skin Body Wash, there's a scent and dynamic sound made for you.

Listen to the full playlist here and enjoy the benefits of each Dove Body Wash below.

Dinah Jane Talks First World Solo Tour And New Music

After the release of her first solo EP in 2019, Dinah Jane is ready to embark on her first solo world tour.

Chatting with VIBE at Billboard's 2020 Power event, the former Fifth Harmony songstress shared her plans for the year, which include a tour alongside Agnez Mo and new music. Her EP Dinah Jane -1, presented a new direction for Jane who leaned into her vocal chops while showcasing her love for R&B.

"I was in a position where L.A. Reid gave me the power and stepped up for a project that I believed in. Just to have that kind of power meant the world to me," she said of the project which included the tracks "Fix It" and "Heard It All Before." "I'm so happy I came out with that mini project because it gave people a great introduction into who I am and what I'm about to step into and what I'm about to explore."

When it comes to new music, Jane has something in mind for the lovers and her dearest fans. "Missed A Spot," will release on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) along with more new tunes. "I'm really excited because my fans have been with me since I could remember," she said."From dropping my first YouTube video when I was 11-years-old, this little stinky 7th grader who had like 20 views. Now that I'm 22, I've evolved into an actual musician, it really means a lot that my music can speak to people. I love that people are loving the music and I can't wait to give them more of it."

The U.S. portion of the tour begins in Phoenix, Ariz. on April 7.  Fans can currently purchase tickets for the North American dates on Dinah Jane's website.

"Being a solo artist now made it hard to define who I was because I was singing so many different styles before," Jane told VIBE in 2019. "I had to take time for me to really cope and understand what it is that I really want to come out as my true identity. When I dropped my first record "Bottled Up" it was more me transitioning from Fifth Harmony to myself, I really love that I took some downtime to understand who I was and who I want to be."
