It was a beautiful weekend – and we're not just referring to the amount of time we spent ogling our annual Most Beautiful List
. If you were outside enjoying the spring weather, we'll catch you up.
5. It Ain't Easy Being Beautiful
From the moment we laid eyes on our seventh grade yearbook photo, we knew our days in front of the camera were numbered. So when some of the finest faces in Hollywood hit the studio for PEOPLE's annual Most Beautiful issue
, we took notes. Check out all the behind-the-scenes action from lovely ladies like Amanda Seyfried
and Sheryl Crow
, who have given us plenty of inspiration to practice our model faces in our respective mirrors.
(Ready, set, work)
4. A Fairy Tale About a Man Who Plays Basketball
Sometimes, you really score and meet the love of your life, a real three-pointer kind of gal. You court her, and the two of you have a ball. She's a total game-changer, like a half-court shot that beats the buzzer. Taking the ultimate free throw, you ask her to marry you. And then you, former NBA star Michael Jordan, wed model Yvette Prieto in Palm Beach, Fla., in what we can only classify as a total slam dunk.
(Send your congrats to the true winners)
3. From Our Hearts to Your Ears
We have a lot of nice things to say to you, dear reader, but we'll leave the sweet talkin' to these hot famous guys who have a way with words to go along with their other equally impressive, um, talents. Searching for the right things to say to that special someone? Maybe you should tell your crush that he or she is "kind of impossible to dream up," or borrow another swoon-worthy line from this advanced romance playbook.

2. What We Talk About When We Talk About Kate
Breaking news: The Duchess of Cambridge
is actually perfect. (And we're not even talking about her coat
. This time.) Kate recorded a video message to support Children's Hospice Week
in yet another display
of the mom-to-be's do-good 'tude. Inspired much?

1. Why Nerd Prom Was Better Than Your High School Prom
You won't see us dissing mom-made dresses and balloon-stuffed gymnasiums. But the Hollywood regulars who hit Washington, D.C., for Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner (a.k.a. Nerd Prom) might have just one-upped that awkward arms'-length pose that haunts all of our prom photos. From Sofia Vergara
to Katy Perry
, see who brought the red carpet to the White House.
