It all started with " America's Next Top Model. " The Tyra Banks-hosted TV model competition, now in its 15th cycle since debuting in 2003, proved that the business of fashion — played out by packs of volatile young hopefuls — could be fodder for blockbuster TV ratings. "Project Runway," "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," "Shear Genius" and a slew of other shows steeped in the worlds of fashion, modeling, styling and hairdressing followed. Fast-forward seven years, and it's nearly impossible to find a major cable network that doesn't feature at least one show centered on fashion or beauty.

Before Charlize Theron could pick up her Woman of the Year award, she had to prove she was worthy. That meant dancing to disco music, striking modeling poses and wooing someone wearing an elephant suit and a pink sparkly bra -- all to the delight of the cast members of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals at Harvard University, the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe. Theron's efforts landed her a gold-colored pudding pot. "I hope you all know I'm a high school dropout. I just thought I'd be clean with you guys," Theron said Thursday.
