8 Celebrity Trends Moms Want to See in 2012

2011 brought us flawless (if colorful) Hollywood hair, hacked celebrity phones, and constant photos of perfect celebrity moms with their immaculately-dressed kids. By far, though, the biggest celebrity trend of 2011 was marriage break-ups. Whether they had been married for 25 years (Arnold Schwarzenegger) or seven years (Ashton Kutcher), guys just couldn’t seem to keep their pants zipped.

Celebrity women didn’t show great judgment, either: Kim Kardashian was married to Kris Humphries for 72 days, and Sinead O’Connor was married for a whole whopping 16 days. Incredibly, Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris and Hugh Hefner managed to demonstrate the best relationship decision of the year, ending their engagement the day before their wedding.  When Hollywood has to look to Hugh Hefner for relationship advice, it becomes difficult to explain the news to my kids.

With the hope that the new year can bring a bit of sanity to Hollywood, here are eight celebrity trends we’d like to see for 2012.
