Having shared their Christmas snaps with the entire world, dozens of celebrities continued the trend as they celebrated the New Year.
TV presenter Holly Willoughby led the way by declaring that what she really, really wants in 2013 is to be more like Spice Girl Emma Bunton.
The 31-year-old This Morning host wished her Twitter fans a “Happy tash-year”.
Dressed in a luminous orange top, she was pictured alongside Miss Bunton wearing a silver hat and sporting a grey moustache. In other pictures, she held a shiny microphone and gave a peace sign.
Liz Hurley and Shane Warne also reminded the world what a shy and retiring couple they are by posting a picture of themselves in fancy dress.
Miss Hurley, 47, sported a blonde wig and ex-cricketer Mr Warne, 43, went for a flamboyant purple creation. Several hours later, Miss Hurley tweeted: ‘Had to go back to bed … glitter make-up still on but seeing double’.
Supermodel Cindy Crawford, 46, wished her fans a fun and safe evening and included sexy images of herself from a Terry Richardson photoshoot spraying champagne across her cleavage while wearing a clingy black dress and red heels.
