When the weather gets pretty darn freezing here in the good old U.S. of A., American celebrities flock Down Under, to Australia that is…
Of course, with Australia being south of the Equator and in the Southern Hemisphere, there is a reversal of seasons and Aussies are just about beginning to really enjoy summer.
Several Americans were taking advantage of that fact, including Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, Kellan Lutz and girlfriend Sharni Vinson as well as Chace Crawford, who were spotted in summery gear as they enjoyed the balmy weather.
Singer and American Idol judge Mariah Carey, husband Nick Cannon and their twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, headed off to the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of the Australian state of Queensland, reportedly to go sailing.
Mariah was bedecked in a tangerine orange dress, gold heels and dangling earrings, while hubby Nick donned dark jeans, white long-sleeved T-shirt topped off with a short-sleeve orange T-shirt, amber-colored laceup boots, with a reversed baseball cap on his head. The couple were clearly color coordinated, both choosing orange for the outing on Saturday, December 29.
Actors Leonardo di Caprio and Jonah Hill were in their knee-length shorts and baseball caps, keeping the strong rays off their faces as they boarded a boat in Sydney on Friday December 28, probably taking public transport to get from point A to point B.
Leonardo kept cool in his baby blue T-shirt, olive drab utility shorts and sneakers, with drink and shopping bag in hand, while costar from film “Django Unchained” Jonah wore a pale blue denim shirt over a black T-shirt and pale blue shorts with a red octopus print. Black baseball cap and black and fluorescent yellow trainers completed the look.
The “Gossip Girl” actor Chace Crawford was spied in his blue jeans, gunmetal grey T-shirt and a matching grey sweatshirt thrown over the left shoulder. Black wayfarer style sunnies, a leather strapped knapsack and white tennis shoes completed the ultra casual look. He was spotted at the airport in Sydney on December 28 as he touched down for his New Year’s vacation.
Twilight star Kellan Lutz, girlfriend Sharni Vinson and their Chocolate Labrador were seen strolling out in Sydney for Christmas vacation, on December 23. The young couple donned blue jean shorts, aviator sunglasses and flip-flops, with Sharni looking feminine in her crocheted top and Kellan in a red and black T-shirt with graphics that read “SEMAPHORE.”
The same day they were spotted catching some rays at the beach with Sharni in a pale blue bikini, while Kellan wore navy, pale blue and white board shorts and a dark blue baseball cap.
Hmmm… December and January in Australia – just in time for winter? Well, I suppose it beats freezing temperatures Stateside…
Take a look at my slideshow to see them celebrating Christmas and the New Year Aussie style…
