We’re not saying it is. Are we? No, we can’t. Or can we? SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. And many hilarious thoughts about this. We showed you young Hollywood in full force at the WB InStyle Golden Globes after party, of which Selena Gomez was at the helm in a bodacious Atelier Versace gold embellished minidress. You can’t not be the life party in that dress, right? Absolutely, as this video shows. Limpid eyes. Ever so slightly slurred speech. Gushing praise for Jennifer Lawrence (hey, we were gushing too). We hear people saying “drunk,” but wouldn’t you be buzzed with adrenaline? C’mon, of course it would hilarious if this were Selena actually drunk on camera. But our real theory we have is this: It was the dress. When you put a dress like that on a 20-year-old, no matter how seasoned they are … you’re going to imbibe the divatude. This just seems to be Selena’s version of divatude. Like, “Look at me. My largesse knows no bounds and I will be complimentary by using big hand gestures. And my eyes will look limp because that is sexy. Got it?” Yeah, guys. Feel the diva.

She’s back! And she’s pierced. And, we’re not certain about what to think about this new jewelry addition? But, hi, Amanda Bynes. You have a piercing on your cheek. Last we heard of her, she was driving into things, getting charges dismissed, possibly walking around tanning salons naked. And then — quiet. It’s like she vanished and we didn’t hear from her for a long, long time. Her Instagram page has been popping, though. Which is where she posted this picture. We’re just wrapping our heads around the piercing but at the same time, she looks kind of pretty. Is that the magic of Instagram? Her hair looks great. The smile’s cute. The glasses are funky. The blue shirt looks great on her. Is it really that bad? Help us out, folks. Should the piercing stay or should it go?

While this is being filed firmly under the rumor category, you can’t deny that this feels like vintage Taylor Swift. It’s true — she always has a new man on her arm within a month of breaking up with someone. Someone suggested the term “serial dater” but we’ll demur from using that term for now. As you know, Ms. Swift and One Direction’s Harry Styles are done and dusted. Finito. They’re never, ever getting back together. But it seems like the you can’t keep the lady down too long, because sources suggest she tried to rope in Bradley Cooper on a date through Jennifer Lawrence while at the Golden Globes. Quick flowchart: Taylor and Jennifer are friends, Jennifer and Bradley are co-stars on Silver Linings Playbook. Another friend has suggested the term “trading up,” but again, we’ll demur.
Unfortunately, even in rumorville, things have not gone according to plan for Taylor, because Brad wasn’t exactly up for the date. Sources say, “Bradley has absolutely no intention of getting together with Taylor. First of all, her reputation precedes her. Bradley is very wary of dating someone who is a bit of a serial dater like Taylor. He thinks she’s far too young for him and wants to date someone his own age, not 16-years younger because he’s ready for something serious. It was a little awkward for Bradley. Jennifer came to him and told him that Taylor was interested in getting together. He had to politely decline, knowing full well that Jennifer and Taylor are friends.” Awkward! And the final nail in the coffin? This quote, “It was an ambitious move from Taylor, but she’s going to have fixate on someone else as Bradley’s just not that into her.” Is it just us, or are “sources” even sounding like 16-year-olds now?

This is one of those posts where we don’t want, or need, to write much, because all we want to do is squee! Lionsgate just released some stills from The Hunger Games next installment Catching Fire, and we’re loving these little sneak peeks. As y’all know, we’re solid fans of Sam Claflin portraying Finnick Odair, so the shot released a little earlier, of him trying to make Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) lose her concentration, made us go a little weak in the knees. The other two newly released shots include Katniss with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) making a speech in what we think could be during their victory tour. The other is a behind-the-scenes look of the film’s director Francis Lawrence chatting with Lawrence and co-star Liam Hemsworth (Gale). Wonder what J.Law is grinning about? Enough talking, more pictures. How excited are you about the movie? We sure as hell are! Read more…
She really doesn’t do things half-way, does she? Rihanna is on — wait for it — seven covers for Complex Magazine’s February to March issue. Each cover is an homage to an album. For instance, the cover you see on the above left is in tune with her very first album — Music Of The Sun — released back in 2005. Notice the sweeter, more innocent vibe. The one on the above right is for Good Girl Gone Bad. The one on the lower left is inspired by Rated R, and the lower right is for her latest album, Unapologetic. You can see a slideshow of all seven covers here, and tell us what your favorite is.
There’s also a major interviewto go with the covers, of course. She brings up her Instagram, often half-naked photo habit — we all know how much Rihanna posts, right — saying, “It’s narcissistic, but whatever—everyone does it. I’m capturing personality… Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. It’s all in your head. That’s why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek.” There’s a sense of bravado while talking about the making of Unapologetic that appeals most to us. “When I was making this record I had no intention except the truth. So whatever is there is real. It’s raw. That’s why the album is called Unapologetic,” she says. And this is the part we like, “I held back before. I didn’t show a lot of myself. I was very guarded. I needed to be open and free and fearless. Basically say, ‘F— it.’ What’s the worst that can happen? They’ll hate me? They’ve done that before.”

Did you check out our exhaustive coverage of the Golden Globes yesterday? We’re hoping you did! We thought we’d give you a tiny break from all the information and wait till you came back refreshed. Because after any awards show, you know there’s going to be a mad after-party. One of the biggest ones that went down was the ” Warner Brothers Instyle Golden Globe Party” which seemed to be the really hot ticket for the night. Because pretty much all of young — and yes, hot — Hollywood showed up in droves. You’ll be able to see all the faces and the gorgeous dresses in our gallery below, of course. Julianne Hough wore a pink Jenny Packham gown which we far preferred to her Golden Globes Monique Lhuillier poufball. Conversely, we prefer Kelly Osbourne‘s Golden Globes Zac Posen gown to the fussy lavender dress (by the same designer) worn to this party. Freida Pinto wore a sequined Antonio Berardi Spring 2013 sheath, while Selena Gomez upped the hardware with a gold Atlier Versace minidress. Her bestie, Vanessa Hudgens also went for metallics wearing a Jenny Packham black sequin, long-sleeved gown with heavily embellished gold shoulders. Ashley Tisdale went in the opposite direction wearing a minimal blush colored Issa column which looked lovely on her. She accessorized with an L.K. Bennett ‘Alexia’ clutch and Jerome C. Rousseau strappy sandals. Nina Dobrev was lady-like in a 50’s inspired icy blue Oscar de la Renta frock. Enjoy the pictures!

While goth was a major trend at the Golden Globes last night, another major direction that the fashion was inclined towards was the diametrically opposite — pastels. Shimmering nudes, pretty neutrals, and creamy white were all spotted on stars providing a wonderful foil to the ever-prevelant black. Leading this brigade was Amy Adams in a romantic nude Marchesa gown with a tulle fishtail complete with Tiffany & Co. jewelery. Isla Fisher also chose a nude palette but sparkled thanks to beaded embroidery that was sewn all over her love Reem Acra gown. Amanda Seyfried was another highlight in a shell, flowing, lace-panelled Givenchy Couture custom-made gown which had us sold. Megan Fox nailed it, as well, in a blush-colored, strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewelery and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch. Bringing in the sexy were, who else, but Jennifer Lopez and Lea Michele. J.Lo worked it like a pro, pouring her curves in a nude Zuhair Murad long-sleeved gown covered in ivory lace overlay. Lea went her regular route by showing off some leg, but still looked quite lovely in a white, halter-necked, textured Elie Saab gown and bag paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giambattista Valli heels. Heidi Klum also showed off some major stems in a one-shouldered white Alexandre Vauthier gown with gold, embellished trim.
Adding little washes of pastel color were Kelly Osbourne and Nicole Richie. Kelly chose a mint green, fishtail Zac Posen gown that somehow, ended up working with her lavender hair. She buffed up her outfit with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Judith Leiber bag and Jacob & Co jewels. Nicole, on the other hand, was elegant in an vintage-looking, old-Hollywood inspired, pale blue and white Naeem Khan gown. She even worked in pale blue eyeshadow — how’s that for retro? Check out all our looks compiled in the gallery below and tell us who got the thumbs-up.

This is the part we hate about any awards show. In this case, we’re obviously talking about last night’s Golden Globes, of which a truly stellar best-dressed list has already been published by us. But didn’t really want to call this a worst-dressed list, because the women we’re enumerating are too gorgeous to be worst-anything. We’re just a tad disappointed in their outfits because we expect so much more from them. Like Taylor Swift, for instance. While her brown Donna Karan Atelier gown is quite nice, it’s nothing to write home about. Also wearing brown, was Lena Dunham, but we find her Zac Posen a bit prom-ish on her. Moving on to the orange bracket, perhaps the biggest disappointment is our girl crush Marion Cotillard. We have such high expectations of her. And while the color of her Christian Dior Couture dress is punchy, it doesn’t grab us. Nor does the lacklustre hair. No amount of her Frenchitude can convince us of otherwise. Also, wearing orange was Zooey Deschanel in an Oscar de la Renta ball-gown with pearls around her neck. It’s the same old, same old, basically. We need her to shake things up. Besides, is it just us, or does her outfit look … droopy? The lone pastel is provided by Julianne Hough‘s frothy Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2013 gown which looks like it has gold confetti strewn over it. Someone needs to tell Julianne that she isn’t, in fact, a Disney Princess.
On to our three blues. Rosario Dawson and Jessica Chastain wore the same icy shade. But the peplum on Rosario’s version, in pictures, made the very slim actress look rather wide. Not flattering at all. Jessica’s Calvin Klein wasn’t flattering either. The fit, especially around the bodice looked clumsy. The third blue on the least is more a teal, provided by Julie Bowen. Her one-shouldered, Halston gown looked like a bolt of fabric that had been tacked on her. We love the armful of bracelets, though. Rounding up the list are the two black dresses. The semi-sheer Louis Vuitton gown on Rachel Weisz is just — the less said the better. She still has Daniel Craig as a husband so it doesn’t matter what she wears. And then, lastly, we have Kristen Wiig in Michael Kors. Too simple? Too — those cut-outs have us iffy. Better luck next time, all!

We love a dose of precious metal especially when it’s done so, so right. We’re talking the colors and not pure metal, though, which is even more interesting. Last night’s Golden Globes brought us the gifts of Kristen Bell and Emily Blunt who wore silver and gold, respectively, in a manner that invites spontaneous sighs of approval. Special mention has to be given to Kristen who is a couple of months pregnant and has taken awards show maternity dressing to a new high. Her silvery Jenny Packham Spring 2013 gown flowed over her like a dream and that crystal embroidery over the bodice and neckline is ethereal. Similar props have to be given for the makeup and hair. Emily’s embroidered gold Michael Kors gown — hurrah for the cut-outs — also floored us. The touch of ruby through her jewelry, highlighted as she wore her hair up in a bun, is such an unusual choice but it works so well.
While the looked amazo head-on, here’s the back-view. Kristen’s crystal trail adds the extra bit of glamour, while Emily’s cut-outs with the simple body-con silhouette keeps it minimal, yet incredibly sexy. Bravo, ladies!

These two stunning ladies are nothing short of a tangerine dream. We’re talking about Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Alba, who both wore shades of orange, albeit in different avatars, providing welcome pops of color on the Golden Globes red carpet last night. Jennifer went for a deeper shade of vermilion with her strapless, ball-gown inspired Christian Dior Fall 2012 couture number. It’s deceptively simple but the reason it works to beautifully, other than the color and how it offsets her brunette hair and creamy skin, is how amazingly structured it is. There’s not an ounce of fabric that’s out of place and the construction of the bodice is a masterpiece and cut beautifully. We love the tiny retro feature of it being cinched at her tiny waist, but they made that aspect contemporary by the use of a metallic belt. Romantic and all-class, this one’s worthy of applause.
Jessica on the other hand, went for a softer shade of coral with her Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2013 gown. We love the way it drapes and folds in a manner that’s not fussy at all, and the fact that she’s matched her lipstick to the shade of the gown is a beautiful touch. That amazing necklace you see is by Harry Winston and we’re in awe of it. That’s the kind of ice you wear when you know you’re bringing it. The whimsy of her Roger Vivier ‘Pochette Prisme Poodle’ clutch is a little indulgence most may disagree with, but it’s youthful and fresh, and we totally approve. And now to decide between Jennifer and Jessica. We’re not going there. Perhaps you can and tell us who you prefer?
