Rihanna donned a palm Rio bikini with a white crochet skirt in St.-Tropez, Gwen Stefani showed her wild side in an animal-print L*Space number with an aztec All Saints maxi, while Whitney Port mixed prints like a pro in a floral Nanette Lepore top and layered earthy mini in Vegas. Cruise through to see what other stars have been spotted working this trend, then shop their looks for yourself.
This animated film features the voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, and Leslie Mann. Eisenberg voices Blu, a rare blue macaw who's forced to leave his cozy American home for Rio, to meet another macaw, Jewel (Hathaway) in the hopes that they'll hit it off and repopulate their species. When the two are kidnapped, the kids' film becomes a colorful adventure through an animated South America. DVD extras include a deleted scene, making-of featurettes, a jukebox, and music videos.
This film traces the inspirational true story of young surfer Bethany Hamilton (AnnaSophia Robb), who lost her left arm in a 2003 shark attack when she was just 13 years old.

In her acting debut, pop star Carrie Underwood also stars as Bethany's church youth ministry leader, and Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt play Bethany's parents. Extras on the DVD include a documentary of Bethany's experience, deleted scenes, and a making-of featurette.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides didn't just take the top spot at the box office this weekend, but its $90.1 million debut marks the biggest opening weekend of 2011. It's not all cheers though; the fourth Pirates installment opened to smaller opening weekends than Dead Man's Chest and At World's End.
Right behind Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, Bridesmaids stayed strong in second with $21 million, while former champ Thor slipped to third and took in $15.5 million. Fast Five earned $10.6 million for fourth place, while Rio clung to the top five with $4.6 million.
For the second weekend in a row, Thor managed to come out on top of the box office with $34.5 million, beating out new release Bridesmaids. Still, the opening for the female-dominated comedy had an impressive debut at second place with a total of $24.4 million, and it set a record for being the biggest opening for a film starring a Saturday Night Live cast member in a non-SNL-related movie.
Coming in third place was cars and crime sequel Fast Five with $19.5 million, followed by a new release, the Paul Bettany-starring Priest, with $14.5 million. The animated birds of Rio completed the top five with an $8 million haul.
Don't underestimate the strength of Thor! The action film starring Chris Hemsworth muscled its way to the top of the box office in its opening weekend with a haul of $66 million. It beat last week's winner Fast Five, which still zoomed into the second spot with $32.5 million.
The new wedding-themed romantic comedies followed; Jumping the Broom came in third place with 13.7 million, while the Ginnifer Goodwin/Kate Hudson flick Something Borrowed got the fourth spot with $13.2 million. The animated family film Rio rounded out the top five with $8.2 million.
Ladies and gentleman, Fast Five has started the box office's engines! In its opening weekend, the fourth sequel in the car racing franchise opened at number one, raking in $83.6 million to claim the title of the biggest opening of 2011. It's also the most any of the Fast and the Furious films has made in its first weekend.
It zoomed past the winner of the last couple of weeks, Rio, which came in second with $14.4 million. Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family swooped into the next spot with $10 million, while Robert Pattison's drama Water For Elephants pulled into fourth with $9.1 million. Another new release, Prom, just barely made it into the top five with a mere $5 million.
It was another big weekend for animated film Rio, which nailed the number one spot at the box office for the second week in a row with $26.8 million. It beat out a couple of new releases, like Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family, which pulled in $25.8 million, and Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon's circus romance Water For Elephants, which earned $17.5 million in third place.
Hop managed to make it to number four with $12.5 million — not surprising since it was Easter weekend. Finally, Scream 4 just squeaked into the top five with a total of $7.2 million in its second week of release.
Another weekend has gone by, bringing with it a fresh batch of films to theaters. Whether you buckled down for a good scare, courtesy of Scream 4, or went for something a bit lighter, like Rio, there was plenty to choose from.

Despite the good reviews of Scream 4, it couldn't beat fellow new release Rio at the box office. The animated flick, which features the voices of Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, brought in $40 million to claim the number one spot. Scream 4 trailed it with $19.3 million, a significantly less opening total than previous Scream sequels (Scream 3 opened with $34.7 million back in 2000).
Easter bunny kids' movie Hop, last week's box office winner, came in third with $11.2 million. Fourth place was claimed by inspirational surf film Soul Surfer with $7.4 million, and the top five was completed by Saoirse Ronan's action vehicle Hanna, with $7.3 million.
No need to pack the sunscreen and bathing suits for this trip to Rio! Theaters are filled with animated 3D films for tots, so it takes a lot for one to stand out from the pack. Rio, which enters theaters April 15, does just that with its mix of color graphics, lively characters, and toe-tapping musical sequences.
The story of Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg), a rare blue macaw hatched in Rio but snatched by smugglers who transport him to Minnesota, and Jewel (voiced by Anne Hathaway), the world's only other blue macaw who is living in captivity in Rio, takes us on the birds' journey as their owners try to mate them. After a series of kidnappings, some hijinks created by troublesome monkeys, and a high-speed chase through the middle of the city's legendary Carnival festival, the ending may be predictable, but getting there is still fun.
