hi from ami 



This time of year, you can't help 
but have major product lust! The 
holidays always make me crave 
sparkly new makeup, killer 
dresses, and sky-high heels! Not to mention all the 
presents I can't wait to buy for family and friends. 
(Everyone is getting something from our 'Holiday 
Haul' gift guide on page 111!) But in the midst of 
all that shopping, it's also a time to think about how 
you are going to give back. For me, it's important 
to support the Fresh Air Fund. It gives inner- city 
teens a chance to go to summer camp and get a 
totally different perspective on life — I love that. 
And each member of the Seventeen staff has found 
a meaningful way to make their mark this holiday 
season! Go ahead and steal their ideas or pick one 
from our 'Change the World Over Winter Break!' story on page 146. There's 
no heavy lifting involved: It's just crazy, delicious, insane fun — that also 
makes a massive impact on the world! 

Tweet me how you're going to give back 
this season at @annshoket #17giveback!

When I was graying up, my Mom was the perfect hostess, having everything covered - 
great food, cozy atmosphere and awesome company 1 . When I moved into my first big city 
apartment, it was time to show off what I learned by hosting a holiday soiree. I picked the 
perfect out-fit, theme, menu and music (a mix of classic Holiday tunes and Carrie Underwood 
hits). Quests loved the Cocktails k Mistletoe* theme (which helped me score a kiss from my 
college crush'.), and it was an unforgettable night, life is full of so many -firsts, and as a new 
generation of women, we have so much to look forward to. Why not celebrate with a party? 
Check out my simple tips to make any -first-time hostess, the hostess with the mostest.

The holidays are a busy time for everyone! Utilize social networking sites to send out

morning of for last-minute touches.

Pulling oft the perfect party takes lots of time and effort, so when your BFF offers to 
bring her homemade holiday cookies, graciously accept and serve for dessert.

Above the Influence & SOIVIIIOO/I 

Above the Influence. It's a state of mind. It's about being yourself and not letting negative 
influence get to you. Pressure to drink or do drugs or do anything that goes against who

wants to stay above it, you've come to the right spot.

UNWASTED WEEKEND STYLE! 

We all have that style that best expresses 
who we are. So this weekend, we want 
to see your signature style. Snap a quick 
photo wearing your outfit and upload the

These chic ^^^g their own 



shadow 



17: What inspires your look? 

Kendall Jenner: I get my personal style from my three big 
sisters. I also follow a bunch of Tumblrs and they give me 
great ideas. 

17: How is Kylie's style different from yours? 
Kendall: She likes to dress up. I like to look cute, but I wear 
jeans and boots to school and she wears a put-together 
outfit. She really tries, even when it's not a big deal! 

17: You've been doing some modeling. Has that changed 
your approach to fashion? 

Kendall: I used to hate heels because I'm so tall. I would 
literally tower over my sisters! But I learned that they 
elongate my body and make everything look better. Now 
they make me feel more confident! 



17: What was it like to walk the runway at 
Fashion Week this year? 

Kylie Jenner: The energy is amazing! It's nerve- 
racking, and everyone's staring at you, but then I heard 
my family yelling, "Go, Kylie!" It was such a good 
experience. I want to do it every day of my life! 

17: Do you have any fashion obsessions? 
Kylie: I seriously have 15 pairs of short black combat 
boots. My mom got me my first pair for Christmas two 
years ago and I didn't really get how to wear them 
then — but now I think they make every outfit 10 times 
cuter. I've worn them at least twice a week since then! 

17: Do you ever give Kendall style advice? 
Kylie: We ask each other if things look good, but she 
tends to hate my outfits. So now if she says something 
looks cute, I know the outfit is wrong! 




WW I don t think my style fits 
into any category because I 
like to try new looks all the 
time. lam always looking to 
try something different. tt#

17: How has your style changed? 

Abigail Breslin: I went through this embarrassing phase of 
wearing only Abercrombie T-shirts with vests — I call it the 
2008 effect. Everything that I wore then was bad! 

17: What's your fashion obsession now? 

AB: I'm obsessed with heels! They can really edge up any 
outfit, or make it dressier, or more girly. When I first started 
wearing heels, I would walk up and down my hallway and 
practice on different surfaces. 

17: Do you like to shop? 

AB: Yes! But I tend to gravitate toward the same things every 
time. I have a whole shelf of striped T-shirts, and it needs to 
end. I'm not allowed to buy stripes anymore . . . for a while!

17: What's your number one fashion rule? 
Emma Roberts: I don't like to do over-the-top sexy. 
It's just not me. It's nicer to pick one part of yourself 
to accentuate, so if you're going to show a lot of leg, it 
should be covered up on top. I think it's distracting 
when people do a plunging V-neck with a tiny mini. 

17: Do you follow any fashion blogs? 

ER: I like whowhatwear.com, because I think they do 
a good mix of vintage, new, expensive, inexpensive. 
It's a really good site for inspiration. I've bought so 
many things through there because it's just so easy; 
they put it together for you! 

17: What do you do when you're not able to 
find the right outfit? 

ER: I have one word: black. If you can't find 
anything to wear, put on black skinny jeans, a black 
shirt, cute little colorful shoes, and a nice necklace, 
and you're fine. 

17: Do you think you dress to impress girls or guys? 

ER: I dress for myself, because when /think I look 
good, then it doesn't matter what other people say.

17: How would you describe your look? 
Kat Graham: I call it '90s couture: a lot 
of high-waisted acid-washed jeans and 
leopard print. I've had the same leather 
fanny pack since I was 4. People will 
be like "That's not cool! What are you 
doing?!?" But I think it's convenient! 

17: What influences you? 

KG: When you grow up with a father who 
is eight generations Liberian and your 
mother is of Russian-Polish- Jewish 
descent — you are already different. 
I was raised in this environment where 
you are completely 100 percent yourself, 
without apology And I think that totally 
affects my fashion. 

17: What's your fashion philosophy? 

KG: I want to put myself out there as 
somebody who just does what I want to 
do and is respected for it. There might be 
a girl out there who is scared to be 
herself, so maybe she'll be like, "Oh, 
Kat went out in some crazy outfit. She 
doesn't care, so why should I?!?" 






style staxs 














17: When did you first realize your style made such an impact? 
Emma Watson: I was 11 the first time someone asked me 
who I was wearing. I was like, "What do you mean? My 
dress?!?" But I've always loved that it conies with the job. I've 
definitely taken interest. 

17: How did you find your fashion voice? 

EW: Sometimes on photo shoots, I've had to say, "This is too 
sexy for me. This isn't my thing." A rock-and-roll biker 
jacket and hot pants is not who I am. I've learned to politely say, 
"Look, I'm sorry. I'm not comfortable." 

17: Did cutting your hair change the way you dress? 

EW: I can wear things that are a bit more graphic. I never used to 
wear black! I try to avoid it because I feel like it's the easy option. 
I'm young, so it's nice to play with color and not just wear black 
all the time. I'll save that for when I'm older! 



A n« S2l SScaUon S h,nes. 

WW I love vintage stores, and 
then having the creativity to 
take clothes home and cut them 
up and sew them. That's kind 
of how my style goes. ##

HOW-TO: 



Oversize curls make a major 
entrance. For mega volume, apply 
texturizer to damp hair, then blow-dry 
and wrap your hair in two-inch Velcro 
rollers for 15 minutes. Next try this 
flirty twist: Start a small braid 
from behind each ear, and join 
them into a side pony at the 
nape of your neck. 
Mist all over with shine 
spray so your curls 
catch the light.

eat all these treats! 

Cookies, candy, holiday yumminess — it's everywhere 
you look. Here's a handy (ha!) guide to indulging without overdoing it! 




Pick out three from the 
box, as long as each 
is roughly the size of 
the top half of your thumb! 

FYI: The antioxidants in dark 
chocolate can be good for your skin! 



, 



Cut a slice that's 
one-eighth of a pie. 
At its widest point, the 
crust should be about 
two inches across — 
that's the length of 
your pinky finger! 



FYI: You cm have dessert about three titles a week, as 
long as you're also eating three Meals a day that include 
fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean protein. 



APPLE ME 





Make a tight fist 
with your thumb side 
up. If the cookies 
are about that size 
or smaller, have one 
as a snack — or two 
if it's your dessert. 



.. 






FYI: 4 thick layer of frosting mil pile on the 
sugar and fat-but a touch of icing or sprinkles 
adds i&si the right am ount of sweetness !

Cup your hands closely

portion (about three-

STAND TALL 



I used to be so ashamed of my 32Ds that 
I'd slump my shoulders and wear multiple 
sports bras at once to hide them. But a couple of 
years ago, I started working out, and it helped my 
posture. Standing tall actually drew /ess attention to my 
chest! Around the same time, I met with a fashion stylist. 
She told me not to wear shirts with loud patterns near my 
bust area and taught me that flowy tops or scoop nocks 
often create an illusion of being smaller. Her advice was 
life-changing. I finally realized that you don't have to hide 
your breasts — you just have to learn to work with them!

TALK IT OUT 



I've always been self-conscious about my 
A cups. They're tiny for my body size, and 
when I hit high school, kids started making fun of 
them. One time, a guy even commented on 
Face bo ok that they were 'saggy' and 'disgusting!' That was 
the last straw. I begged my mom to take me to a plastic 
surgeon, who asked if I wanted implants for myself, or 
so others would like me. She told me that surgery often 
makes you feel worse because it doesn't fix the problems in 
your life, the way you think it will. That point really stuck. I 
decided to keep my natural breasts, and I'm glad I did. 4} A

IUYS 

SO OBSESSED 
WITH BOOBS? 



For guys, breasts 

are the ultimate 

symbol of sex, and 
talking about them makes 
them feel cool and mature 
and manly. Sure, it still 
stings when a dude makes a comment about 
your body, but know that it happens to every 
girl, no matter what shape or size she is. 
Plain and simple, guys don't have breasts, 
and they're fascinated. So don't worry 
another second about what you've heard guys 
say they're into (big, round, perky, whatever!). 
The truth is, no guy will be disappointed 
with your boobs when you hook up. He'll 
just be psyched: "Oh, 
so that's what's really 
going on under there."

than those who 
get eight hours. 



the sneaky thing that's '- 

bumming you out 

If you're suffering from that crabby, cranky just-can't- deal feeling, you 
could be sleep deprived. Here's what's going on — and how to fix it. 




KbKAlNbhlb 

o\/Pi?i oinrn 

A full night of sleep acts like a reset button for your 
brain — it processes your emotions so you can start 
fresh in the a.m. But if you don't sleep long enough 
to hit that deep stage of sleep you need? Your brain 
never gets refreshed, so you wake up moody. 




^ 



YOU CANT COPE. AT ALL. 

If you're constantly functioning on short sleep, it's 

like a chain reaction: You can't shake yesterday's 

stress, so you're extra edgy — and then you overreact 

to everything. Even the tiniest stressors (like having 

a hard time zipping your jeans or a subtle snub from 

a friend) can make you want to cry or lash out. 



GET BACK ON TRACK! 

Can't seem to grab the full eight to nine hours of sleep 
your brain and body needs? Give these tricks a try. 

If you can't fall asleep... take a hot bath before bed. 
As your body temp drops after you get out, your brain releases 
melatonin-a hormone that helps you fall asleep! 

If you can't stay asleep... 

no caffeine after 2 p.m. Even a little can keep 
you awake for up to 10 hours! (Plus, caffeine 
makes you pee, so you're more likely to wake 
up in the middle of the night.) 

If you didn't sleep well last night.. . __^ 

power nap! Thirty minutes after school is just 

enough to recharge you without ruining your next night's sleep.

When you're totally overwhelmed, you don't feel 
like exercising, and your body craves sugary and 
carby junk food for an instant boost. Over time, 
these bad habits can lead to weight gain, 

m acne, and sickness — all stuff that's 
*•"* going to make you feel even crappier.

sleep helps me stay strong 

a At my breaking point last year, I was exhausted, 
and it affected my whole life. I was getting sick a ton 
and couldn't keep a positive attitude. So in the past 
year, I've made it a priority to get eight hours of 
sleep, drink lots of water, and eat three balanced 
meals a day. (Since I've dealt with an eating disorder, 
it can be hard, but I take it a day at a time— and 
have never felt better!) I've learned that your body 
takes care of you when you take care of it.

Christmas lights in our

drive-through display called Santa's 

Wonderland, We blasted Christmas 

carols and kept up a jokey 

commentary of the displays the

SPRUCEU? 
YOUR LOVE! 



"My boyfriend and I went to 
the Christmas tree farm, not to buy 

anything, just to drink hot 

chocolate, hold hands, and look at 

all the pretty trees. We searched 

for the largest tree — and snuck in 

a few cold kisses each time we 

thought we'd found it!"

stay on his 
over break! 

When you see your crush only at school, 

the holidays feel like a giant 

flirting time-out. Not anymore! 

Ef Slip him a note. 

On the last day of school, give him a cute 
holiday card (put a candy cane inside and 
write "Just making your holidays a little 
sweeter!"), taut tell him he's not allowed to 
open it until December 25. You'll guarantee 
he's thinking of you in a few days. 

Ef Set a "sorta" date. 

Mention that your crew goes sledding every year 

and he should totally come— then say, "I'll text 
you when we go." Then wait a few days. He'll go 
crazy wondering when hell hear from you again. 




Ef Tag him, 




Post a jokey photo on 
Facetaook with a caption, 
like, 'Which ginger-friend 
should I nibble on first?' 
Then tag your friends,

Tt's funny how things work. One 
day during winter break, I was 
bored, so I went to see a small 
movie called To Save a Life. I 
wanted to go only because the 
lead character was really cute, but as 
I watched him deal with his friend's 
suicide, I wondered what / would do in 
that situation. Little did I know that just 
a few weeks later, 1 would find out 

a new Mend 

I'd been doing online homeschooling 
since a clique of mean girls made my life 
miserable. It was better than facing my 
tormentors every day, but since I never 
got to see the other students, 
I was lonely. {The program was 
based near my hometown of 
Edmonton, Alberta, in Canada, 
but students logged in from 
all over the world.) One day 
I randomly IM'd a girl from 
school, Anna-Mae. We clicked 
immediately — she confessed 
that friend drama had also led 
her to online school. Soon we 
were regularly chatting about girly stuff: 
her crazy hair (she'd bleach it blonde and 
add pink and black streaks), the pop 
songs I'd write on piano, and, of course, 
boys. We never met in real life, but that 
actually made it easier to open up. 

a chilling convo 

Anna-Mae became a close friend, and 
we chatted online all the time, even 
after we both went back to public school. 
One night, I quickly checked Facebook 
before heading out to my youth group. 
As soon as I signed on, a box popped 



up from her, asking, "How many Tylenol 
do you have to take to die?" I stopped 
breathing — Anna-Mae had never said 
anything even remotely suicidal before. 
I felt dizzy as I typed back, asking 
how many she'd swallowed. She said 
four, but then every few minutes, the 
number would go up: "Five, now six...." 
I asked her why, but she only wrote, 
"Life sucks." To this day, I still don't 
know what set her off. I felt a wild mix 
of emotions. For all I knew, she was 
totally fine and just goofing around with 
another friend in her room. If I called the 
police, it could be horribly embarrassing. 
So I stayed online chatting with her, 



■ 



he wrote: 
any Tylenol do 
you have to take 
to die?' 



trying to figure out if her threats were 
real. After an hour of chatting and trying 
to comfort her, I was late for my youth 
group and started telling myself, She 
isn't really in danger. So I told Anna-Mae 
I needed to go and said, "Don't take 
any more — you promise?" She just 
responded, "Yeah, whatever." 

playing detective 

But I couldn't shake my sinking feeling 
that she was in trouble. So I spoke 
with my youth group leader, who said 
we should call the police. Soon, three 




cops arrived 
and asked 
me where 
Anna-Mae 
lived. I had 
no idea. They suggested I go back on 
Facebook, but she wasn't logged 
on. I was petrified she was dead! A half 
hour later, she finally responded — she 
was up to 10 pills! The cops told me to 
chat casually with her to get her parents' 
names, so I told her how I turn my family 
members' names into Flintstones ones, 
like my sister Madison is "Madistone." 
I offered to do her parents' names, 
too. It was silly, but it worked ! The cops 
jotted down the info. At one point, she 
mentioned a community center where 
I've gone for family reunions. I lied and 
said, "My cousin lives near there. I 
wonder if you know him? What school 
do you go to?" I felt guilty for lying, but 
once she told me, the police got her 
address from the school's principal and 
rushed to find her. I was so nervous! 

Finally, at midnight, a cop called and 
said, "We found her and rushed her to the 
hospital. She'll be okay." I smiled so big! 

regaining trust 

For months after, Anna-Mae didn't 
respond to any of my messages. I was 
worried she felt betrayed by me. One 
day, she finally replied, "How are you?" I 
was so happy she was ready to talk! We 
chat regularly now. I'm glad I stepped 
in to help — even if she'd stayed mad at 
me, it would have been worth it. ©

get killer 

confidence! 

After Precious, Gabby went from 

regular girl to Oscar nominee. Now she's 

sharing the tricks that made her a star. 



nt'lfoit i iiek I 

Gabby'sfunnew 
comedy, Tower 
Heist, will have 
you feeling good! 




My #1 confidence 
trick is to stand 
really tall! Get on 
your tippy-toes 
and elongate your 
neck. It makes you 
feel important! 



The best way to get what you 
want is by asking for it 
with sweetness as 
opposed to demanding 
it with bitterness. 

When I was 

17, my dream 

was to sing 

on tour with 

'N Sync and 

do photo shoots. I do photo 

shoots now, but 'N Sync never 

shows up... weird. (Ha!) 

Never, ever, ever let people in on how nervous 
you are, and never put yourself down to others. 
It's a total confidence -buster. Dnh! 





Gabby flipped when 
meeting her childhood 
idol, J.C. Chasez. 



The first step toward making your 
dream a reality is researching how other 
people reached that dream, and then 
planning your own route. 

My mantra is: "Breathe, 
Boo! You're a champ! 
You got this." 

When I'm intimidated, 

I count my blessings and 
accomplishments. 

My momma gave 
me the best piece, 
of advice I ever 
received, which 
was to stop crying and 
grow a thick skin, because 
contrary to my belief, life 
doesn't owe me anything.

REED 



photographs hy cliff tvatts 

With a big movie role and a major new love in her life, this 
star is stepping out of the Twilight and into the spotlight 

Take the drama of Teen Mom, the 24/7 partying of Jersey Shore, and the heart (and chaos) of Keeping 
up With the Kardashians, and you've basically peeked into Nikki Reed's teenage life. When she was 
growing up in Los Angeles, her childhood had all the makings of the juiciest reality TV show. For 
starters, her father left when she was just a toddler, while her mother was more of a friend than a 
parent. "There was endless love, but there weren't a lot of rules or boundaries," she confesses. "If I 
didn't want to do my homework or brush my teeth, I didn't have to." Her family's financial situation also made 
her feel like a total misfit at school. "I was always embarrassed for people to come over my house," she admits. 
"It smelled like cats, my mother worked as a hairdresser out of the house, and I wore my brother's old clothes." 
Nikki starting hanging with a fast crowd — a group of outsiders just like her. While her friends cared only about 
partying, Nikki loved writing in her journals — she'd fill them with her deepest secrets and stories of out-of- 
control nights, drama with friends, fights with her dad. "I just saw it as the normal ramblings of a teenager," she

said. But with the help of a family friend, director and 
screenwriter Catherine Hardwicke, those journal entries 
became the critically acclaimed film Thirteen. (Hardwicke 
cast her in the movie as one of the leads and would later 
choose her to be Rosalie Hale in The Twilight Saga.) It 
completely changed her life: Practically overnight, she 
went from 15 -year- old outcast to Hollywood "it girl." 

But Nikki admits it's been hard to shake the 
wild-child rep that put her on the map. "I got typecast 
as a party girl when Thirteen first came out," she 
remembers. "The funny thing was, I was a virgin, 
I didn't do drugs, and I barely drank." To add to the 
drama, returning to her crazy home life after 
promoting the film all over the world was a tough 
transition. So she moved into an apartment and 
started homeschooling herself right before her 
16th birthday. "I was secretly hoping my parents 
wouldn't allow it," she reveals. But Nikki figured out 
how to survive on her own — 
living off ramen noodles and 
tiny paychecks from small 
acting roles. (She had a short 
stint on The OC.) 

Five years later, she landed 
the part of Rosalie, Edward's 
bitchy but beautiful sister. 
"It's the best and the worst 
thing that's ever happened to 
me at the same time," she 
says. Everyone has heard the 
rumors of Twilight love 
triangles, on-set fights, and 
friendship rifts, but for 
Nikki, actually living them 
became almost too much to 
deal with. "In the beginning, 
it was innocent and fun, and 
we were like one big happy 
family — it was like being at 

sleepaway camp," she says. "And then success comes 
along and changes the dynamic. We're not all best 
friends, and we're not all going to hang out together 
after the final movie is done." 

But still, the 2 3 -year-old feels completely 
grateful — especially now as the Twilight franchise 
starts coming to a close. (The first part of the final 
chapter, Breaking Dawn, is in theaters November 18) 
"I wouldn't have anything without [Twilight}" she 
says. "When we were growing up, we never really got 
to go to restaurants because it was too expensive — 
but now I can take out my whole family on a special 
occasion and it feels so good." 

These days, Nikki is celebrating even happier 
things, like her recent wedding to Paul McDonald of

PART OF 

BEING YOUNG 

IS MAKING 

MISTAKES. 



American Idol, with whom she's crazy in love. She 
also has plans to write her first novel and dreams 
of starting her own fashion line. With her hair in a 
ponytail and her dog Enzo at her feet, she talks about 
the relationships that matter these days — and the 
rumors that don't. 

17: What were you really like as a teen? 
Nikki Reed: I wanted to be unique and special — but 
I remember feeling that there was nothing about me 
that made me unique. I was extremely insecure about 
what I looked like and the way we lived, so I was 
always looking for a way to stand out. In junior 
high, I used to wake up at 3:30 a.m. to make sure my 
hair was flat-ironed and that my eyelashes were 
separated with the backside of a needle pin. I put so 
much effort into impressing other people. But I think 
that's part of the process — going through all the 

BS and finally realizing it 
doesn't really matter. 



17: Was there anything you 
loved about yourself? 

NR: The one thing that made 
me proud of myself is that I 
was always a good student. 
I did my work, I showed up 
for class. And to this day, I 
don't half-ass anything. 



17: Did you ever think you 
were growing up too fast? 

NR: I never thought about it. 
Even when my mom would 
say, "You're the only 11-year- 
old with a tongue ring," it 
never dawned on me that 
having a tongue ring wasn't 
normal. For me, it was just, 
Yeah, I'm cool and way ahead of the curve. 



17: What did you learn from living on your own? 

NR: Now I wouldn't be caught dead doing some of the 
things I did then. I learned if you dress like I was 
dressing — which was cheap and trying to be sexy — ■ 
that's the kind of attention you get. If you talk 
disrespectfully to people, you're going to lose a friend. 
I learned all of that from being on my own. 

17: What is your relationship like with your 
family now? 

NR: My dad and I couldn't be closer. We probably have 
dinner five nights a week. My mom is my best bud, and 
there is such a complete and total level of respect there. 



137 



17: Did they help you deal with the early turmoil 
of being in Twilight? 

NR: My dad gave me the best advice when I was 
dealing with all the rumors. He said the most mature 
thing I could do is just be quiet and wait. People 
aren't dumb and they'll figure out the real truth of 
the situation. You just have to stay consistent and 
be true to yourself. 

17: How did it feel to see your relationships with the 
cast members change? 

NR: It was very, very sad. Let's just leave it at that. 
Attachments grow when you're working with the same 
people for so long. People are friends, people fall in 
love, people get in fights. We're not all robots in that 
way. Sure, things have gone on, and it's weird to have 
them be in the public eye. 



that a girl could ever want in a man. He has just 
the right amount of "I'm just out of reach and 
unattainable," plus incredible sexiness. He's a gentle 
man with a soul. As for Rob, he is charming and very 
good-looking; he's British and smart and multifaceted. 
He writes music and he does a great job of keeping 
people intrigued and keeping his life a mystery 
People can't get enough of either Edward or Rob. 

17: Are you happy to be moving on? 

NR: I'm emotionally over Twilight. But I'm also 
grateful because I wouldn't have anything without 
that series. But for me, right now, the bigger picture of 
my life is that I'm happy and my family is happy, and 
that's where my priorities are. 



17: Why do you think 
there was so much drama 
on the Twilight set? 

NR: Part of being young is 
making mistakes. It's all a 
learning process. There are 
dynamics that come into 
play: There's history, there's 
love, there's hate, there's 
fighting, there's crying. It's 
very involved. 



•• 



17: How are you and Rosalie 
most alike and different? 

NR: Rosalie is fierce and 

extremely loyal about her 

family and protecting them, 

and that's definitely me. 

She's also extremely honest 

and the only family member 

who can't put on a face. She 

stays true to how she feels — 

and that's also a quality I feel 

that I have. Rosalie also just 

wants everything to be 

normal and that's definitely me. But she has this 

completely solid confidence that I don't. There are a lot 

of moments when I question myself and I don't think 

she does that. 

We have to ask: What is it about Rob Pattinson 
that makes people so obsessed? 

NR: You have to start with the character in the books. 

There's a reason why people were in love with Edward 
Cullen even before Rob Pattinson became him. That 
character is so desirable. He's everything good and bad 



ATTACHMENTS

YOU'RE

THE SAME 

PEOPLE 

FOR SO LONG.

17: How did you and Paul 
fall in love? 

NR: When Paul and I first 
met, there was no hand- 
holding, no nothing — it 
was just, "Let's hang out 
and talk about life and be 
buddies first," so I'd know 
if we had any connection. 
He would play his guitar 
for me and sing. He wrote 
a song for me called, 
"I Love You, I'm Just 
Letting You Know." It was 
a week after he first met 
me! That's his form of 
expression. Mine was just 
hanging out and listening, 
because I was so afraid of 
jumping into anything. 
And I know, now it's [just 
a few] months later and 
we're [married], and how 
soon that sounds — and it 
is. But if you ever met 
Paul, then you would 
know. He happens to be 

the best person on the planet. And what's so amazing is 

that he hasn't even seen Twilightl 

17: How did you know Paul was the guy you wanted to 
spend the rest of your life with? 

NR: I feel like I've actually met a person who doesn't 
have a single flaw. He's so incredibly kind, gentle, and 
special that he makes me want to think about him 
first and always before me, and no one's ever made me 
feel that way before. The only thing we argue about is 
who is luckier! ©

OMGGUY 
CONFESSIONS! 

No more wondering what we think of you. 
We're spilling the honest truth. 

We see right through 
Four flirting moves 

££ The number one question I get from girls is about 
WW how to approach a guy. Girls seem to think you need 
to flirt in a really obvious way, like laughing loudly when 
he walks by, or dancing super- sexy in front of him at a 
party. But guys see that and think, If she's doing these 
generic flirting moves, she probably doesn't like 
me — she'll hook up with anyone. No guy wants that girl. 
But if you simply smile, say hi, and look him in the AA 
eye, the guy will notice more and more each time. J *J

? 



We totally judge 
your Facebook 



£^ Since I've been on the Hot Guy Panel, I get tons of 
wW friend requests from girls. It's my duty to say that 
there's nothing worse than filling your wall with sexy 
pictures — like the ones you've taken of yourself in your 
room. It seems desperate, like you're begging for comments. 
The other thing I hate on FB is girls who write cryptic status 
updates clearly directed at other people. Guys assume that 
if you're that dramatic on Facebook, you're probably AA 

-KELLIAN 



even worse in person. 




We always go after 
the girl we want 

^^ Almost every day on Twitter, readers ask me, 
WW 'How can I tell if a guy likes me?' My response is 
usually, 'How much do you talk to each other?' The 
truth is, if you don't talk very often, then the guy 
probably doesn't like you. A guy who likes you will find 
excuses to talk to you, text you, and see you as much as 
possible — just like you would do to him. You won't 
reel confused about how he feels, because he'll Afj 
want to make sure you're absolutely certain. S *J

Suddenly ending a conversation (or even

wrong thing. But I promise you, dude just got 

busy. We have no need for drawn-out goodbyes.

Seems like a breakup but not necessarily: 

Guys are awful at talking about relationships. 

Instead of pushing him to discuss your 

status, look for other signs that he's 

committed — like he wants to hang out all the 

time or he's game to meet your friends.

It feels like a blow-off, but he likely got roped 

into plans with his friends. (Truth: If you just 

started dating, they're still top priority.) 

Being cool with it will win you big points! 



Too many girls date guys who aren't good enough for 
them — and I want you to know that your knight in shining 
armor is still out there! The secret is to pay attention to 
how he treats his teachers: If he's disrespectful to adults, 
he's probably not a very nice guy!"

WHAT SMART 
GIRLFRIENDS KNOW 

The right moves will put you in the GF Hall of Fame — but i 
the wrong ones will lead straight to a split, bytrevor 








text first 

Guys love waking up to a 
surprise "Good morning! " 
text, or hearing randomly, 
"I'm thinking of you." Don't 
think it's always the guy's 
job to initiate conversation. 

give compliments 

Guys like to be complimented, 
just like girls do, but the best 
compliments are the ones he 
hasn't heard a million times. 
One girl told me I have 
"bedroom eyes," and I thought, 
Ooh . . . what does that mean? 
That really stuck with me! 

grab his hand 

I love when we're at a party 
and my girl reaches for my 
hand, as if she wants everyone 
to know that she's with me. 
I feel good knowing she's 
proud to be with me — and 
not afraid to show it. 



DON'T 



text bomb 

Once I got off from work and had 
12 texts from the same girl. Psycho! 
You should follow the "nap 
rule" — never double-text within 
the span of a few hours. If he could 
be taking a nap, it's too soon! 

grill him 

It's fine to ask your guy 
questions about who he's 
hanging out with or what he's 
doing, but I hate when girls get 
accusatory, like "How long 
have you known her? Are you 
hooking up with her?" It makes 
me feel like you don't trust me. 

hide your feelings 

In some relationships, I felt like 
the girl would say "I love you" 
only after I'd said it. Or worse, 
she'd be mad at me and never 
say a word. Nothing is more 
adorable than a girl who 
is brave enough to be honest.

4. GET ON A SUGAR HIGH 



Put all that Christmas candy from your 
stocking to good use by donating it to 
SoldiersAngels.org. They'll send it to our 
troops abroad to brighten their holiday. 



"1¥T^

Folks in homeless 
shelters need 
blankets, so make 
a "no-sew" one 
(you just cut and 
tie) to donate. 
Go to seventeen 
.com/fleece blanket 
for instructions. 



5. KEEP IT CLEAN 



i' .. 




Plastic takes practically forever to 
biodegrade, so if you spy a water bottle 
in the trash, take it out and recycle it! 



6. ROCK OUT 




3. GETA HAIRCUT 



M # My best friend donated 
11 her hair to Locks of 
Love, which makes hairpieces 
for kids who have lost their 
hair to cancer and other 
disorders. She was such an 
inspiration that I grew my 
hair down to my lower back 
during high school and cut 
it off after graduation. It 
was such a simple thing to 
do, but I know it made a 
sick girl feel beautiful!

I was bullied in school, and for 
a long time I kept those feelings 
inside/ 9 said Lady Gaga. "Today, I'm

END BULLYING FROM 
YOUR BEDROOM! 

2* Emily-Anne, 17, who is 
normally so open and 
friendly, felt beaten down 
when kids at school harassed 
her. But instead of hiding, 
she was determined to fight back 
online — the very place where so much 
bullying takes place. "I started a YouTube 
channel called WeStopHate and posted 
videos that my friends made about the 
need to stop hating on themselves — 
because if you feel good about yourself, 
you won't hate on others." What started 
as a small project became huge. As more 
people made and watched the videos, 
WeStopHate got bigger and bigger until it 
became one of the most subscribed 
YouTube nonprofit channels in the world! 
Then Emily-Anne got the 
biggest surprise of all this fall 
when she won a TeenNick 
HALO award 
and got to meet 
Nick Cannon and 
Lady Gaga!

Everyone 



'has had humiliating moments. 





PANTS ON THE GROUND 

"I went from private school to public in 7th grade. 
It was totally different. One day, there was a fire drill 
and this guy pulled my pants down as I was walking 
down the stairs. I was wearing my most embarrassing 
panties. I'd never heard of getting 'pantsed' before, and 
I was so humiliated that I reported him. Then everyone 
was mad at me for getting a popular guy in trouble!" 



ig "After a dance, my BF and I decided to 
pi get frisky in his car at the park in my 
g neighborhood, which is a notorious 
™ couples' spot. Five minutes from curfew, 

^ we realized his battery had died! We 
£ had to walk to my house in the freezing 
2 cold to wake up my dad to jump-start 

pp I the car . . . and somehow explain why 
• it was parked there in the first place!"

.it*; 



"I snuck out to a 



WRONG NUMBER 

Christmas party to see my crush and was so frazzled when he 
asked for my number that I accidentally gave him my mom's 
number. (It's only a digit off!) The next morning, she had a text 
saying, 'I had a great time with you last night!' I got in so much 
trouble for sneaking out, and my crush thought I'd given him 
the wrong number to blow him off. Neither my mom nor my 
crush spoke to me the rest of winter break." 



KISS-OFF 

"Around Christmas, I was chatting with 
my crush on Facebook when he asked 
me what I would do if we were under the 
mistletoe. I said I would kiss him of 
course! Then he messaged me back that 
he'd made a mistake — he was talking to his 
girlfriend at the same time and meant to send it to 
her. I deleted my Facebook account immediatelyl" 



"One time in French class, I dropped my pencil, and when I reached to get it, my desk flipped over!" #sonotgraceful
