The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has really become the hot ticket in town. We already know that Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan got invites, for which they were probably very thankful. Now if only they had dressed with gratitude. We’re definitely not saying that no effort went into putting their looks together. It was just all directed the wrong way for both of them. Lindsay’s black satin halter-necked gown and Kim’s heavy green satin version ended up looking tacky. Sorry, ladies, better luck next time. This was Kim’s second time at the event so she should’ve known what to expect. There were plenty of sartorial winners, though. Charlize Theron, as always, nailed it in an Emilio Pucci lace overlay column with Manolo Blahnik heels and a Judith Leiber clutch. Reese Witherspoon was glam in a black Monique Lhuillier gown and stunning turquoise and emerald drop earrings by Irene Neuwirth. Sofia Vergara and Anna Paquin wore black too, with Vergara picking a black textured brocade David Meister cocktail frock, and Paquin, a Hervé L. Leroux gown.
The list of celebrities is a bit of a roll call, but we’ll try to do justice. There was a fair amount of white that popped up. Claire Danes wore the color through an edgy Vivienne Westwood gown, Malin Akerman wore a slightly peachier version of the shade in a vintage Odicini Couture dress. Eva Longoria wore a shorter, Marchesa cocktail variety, while Ginnifer Goodwin wore a snowy H&M frou-frou long, layered number. The supermodels also picked that color with Irina Shayk looking terrific in a slinky wide-legged jumpsuit and Kate Upton who sadly, ended up looking frumpy in a frilled, lacklustre dress. Dakota Fanning and Zooey Deschanel wore textured pastels; the former with Prada and the latter with Oscar de la Renta. Going in the opposite direction with splashes of color were Elizabeth Banks in vermilion Antonio Berardi peplum gown, Rosario Dawson in an emerald Armani Prive very low-cut dress and Viola Davis in a deep orange Amsale sweeping number. We also loved Kate Hudson‘s sequined purple Jenny Packham gown.
Perhaps the only person who went really crazy with a print was Leslie Mann who picked a wildly floral one-shouldered, Naeem Khan gown. Another woman — who is kind of beyond celebrity — wore the same designer and totally showed up Mann, though. Michelle Obama picked a strapless jazzed-up printed Khan dress and rocked the hell out of everybody. See for yourself in our gallery below.
Happy one-year anniversary, Prince William and Kate Middleton! Who can forget they royal wedding last year on April, 29. You cried, we cried and we all fell in love with her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown. Magical for everyone, right? Through this first year of them being married, Will and Kate have only succeeded in endearing themselves even more to the world because of the fact that they’re so frickin’ adorable together! Their tour through Canada and the U.S provided tons of moments of their very evident affection for each other, even though they tried their hardest to be prim! And on their home turf in England, we totally fell for Kate giggling while William showed off his dance moves at Centrepoint, last year in December?
Because of the fact that we adore these two, we wanted to do something to celebrate their one-year anniversary. It’s our little present to them. We already published an exhaustive gallery and poll of Kate’s top 25 style moments through her first year as Duchess of Cambridge, as an homage to her spot-on fashion sense. Now, we’d like to give you something of them doing what they do best — being a couple. And Voila! We have a gallery right below of Kate and Williams 15 most adorable moments together through the year. Click through each picture to look at their journey full of love, hugs, kisses and laughs. Happy happies, Will and Kate! We look forward to seeing many more years of you two being the cutest royal pair ever.
Whoa! What is with the manners on boy bands these days? You never heard 98 Degrees talking smack about…well, it would have been Christina Aguilera back then too. In a recent interview with New York’s 92.3, the British lads of The Wanted started ripping on Xtina after what was apparently a very chilly appearance on The Voice last week. “She’s a total b—-!” bandmember Tom Parker declared, before conceding, “She might not be a b—- in real life, but she was a b—- to us. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.” Man, as if we didn’t miss sweethearts like the Backstreet Boys already. Which we totally did!
We guess The Wanted have always been a little edgier than pop sweet hearts like Justin Bieber, but this level of douchiness seems totally uncalled for. Unless Christina Aguilera personally spat on each and everyone one of their microphones before the show, we don’t really get where all this rage is coming from. In case we didn’t get how gross the guys though Christina was, Max George took time out to contrast “scary” Aguilera with American Idol‘s lady judge Jennifer Lopez. “Yeah, well J.Lo’s hot,” he laughed. “Christina’s nothing special.” Ew you guys. Boyz II Men would be soashamed of all of you.
Before we say anything about what everyone else wore, we need to say this … HOLY SH–, CHARLIZE THERON! How does she do it? And by that we mean, how does she look like that? The CinemaCon 2012 Awards Ceremony went down at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last night, and Charlize slinked down the red carpet wearing the sexiest, raciest Dion Lee LBD in the history of all little black dresses. The fact that she wore strappy Giuseppe Zanotti heels didn’t hurt either. Take a bow, Charlize.
Also wearing black at the same event were Jennifer Garner and Michelle Pfeiffer. Jennifer wasn’t quite working her Michael Kors dress, perhaps because it should have been worn with different shoes. The ones she had on looked like bandages and were far too clunky. Michelle defied age in her a sheer-panelled dress that showed off a rocking bod. Our favorite, other than Charlize, would be Chloe Moretz who wore a metallic dark blue Kenzo dress with hidden slant pockets.
Other celebrities who attended included the likes of Josh Hutcherson, Anna Faris and Jeremy Renner, to name a few.
Two celebrities. Two moms-to-be. And two major baby showers. The first was Jessica Simpson‘s baby bash and it was mega. The party went down on March 18 and celebrity planner, Mindy Weiss was responsible for the spectacular “Charlotte’s Web” theme. Jess herself wrote the captions for the photos on her website revealing snippets like, “Creating a family is the best thing I’ve done in my life,” and “I really hope I can be half as good of a mom as my mom has been to me.” She also added, “I can’t wait till Bronx meets his new cousin.” Bronx was at the shower too, along with mom Ashlee Simpson, and even Jessica Alba was there were baby Haven. You can see a very genteel video of the shower above. We’ve kind of fallen in love with it.
Next up, we have Giuliana Rancic, who had a surprise baby shower thrown for her by her E! pals yesterday. The party had green and yellow treats by Southern Girl Desserts and decor by Party Paper Wrap and looks lovely, as you’ll see in the photograph after the jump. Read more…
The fact that Lindsay Lohan is currently getting work is something she should be grateful for. She’s been a huge liability over the last few years, so people are wary of her, and for good reason. What’s amazing is that people are still giving her a second chance, like how Fox News invited her to the White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C. this weekend. Another opportunity given to her is her guest appearance on Glee, where she’s going to be a judge at the annual Nationals competition episode on May 15. And from what we hear, the Glee kids ain’t too thrilled with her. Ever heard the expression “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth,” Lindsay? No? That’s what we thought.
Apparently, Lindsay showed up on set six hours late this Wednesday, which left the whole cast and crew fuming. To add salt to their wounds, a source told Us Weekly, “She came to set with a million demands and was not prepared to work. One of her demands has to do with her trailer size. The cast is already worked to death and then she puts everything behind. She is a diva!” Not cool, Lindz. Your career is hanging by a thread and you’re worried about trailer size?
Apparently, the frustration really got to one cast member. Dot Marie Jones, a.k.a. Coach Beiste, tweeted, ” Gonna be a long day!! Some ppl show up late and just throw a wrench in things. Not cool! I’d rather be an hour early (I was) than 5 minutes late.” She obviously thought better of it, and deleted the pissed-off tweet later. Lindsay films the last part of her guest role next week, so she better start making nice. You better not get on the bad side of say, Santana. That girl will take you down.
It’s baby time for Sarah Michelle Gellar and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr.! A source has told People that the couple is expecting their second child, revealing, “She and Freddie are thrilled. They love their little girl more than anything and know that love will only multiple. She is such a fantastic mom; it is just great news.” We would have preferred hearing the news straight from SMG’s mouth, or her rep’s, but we’ll wait for it.
Freddie and Sarah Michelle are already parents to a daughter, Charlotte Grace (lovely name), who was born in 2009, September. Which means she’s going to be three in a few months, and a big sister, to boot! The couple were married in 2002, which makes it a decade for them. That translates into about a 100 in Hollywood years. We can’t wait to hear more details from them. Boy or girl, guys? And a big congratulations! Would it be too much to ask to name the baby Buffy is she’s a girl? Yes? Okay, got it. Although, Buffy really would be something!
We think that Selena Gomez probably got a wee bit territorial because of the amount of time Dianna Agron has been spending with Taylor Swift. The Glee actress and the songbird posted a series of cute (and cutesy) photographs taken together, on Twitter, day before yesterday, celebrating Shirley MacLaine‘s birthday. Last month, Agron and Swift even caught The Hunger Games together. No wonder Selena was feeling left out! But she took care of reasserting her position as Swifty’s BFF yesterday, posting the adorable photograph montage you see above. And get this. The photograph was on her Instagram space, on her twitter account, and on her Facebook page. Triple threat, baby!
The message that went with all three read, “Because you need a best friend that’s sings beautifully, another best friend to dance with you and another to listen. Oh and cupcakes… Cupcakes.” Got that, Agron? She said “best friend.” We’re just kidding about all of this, of course! There’s no rivalry between the three, and they’re all really good friends who share plenty of the same interests — dancing crazy, baking cupcakes, playing the ukulele, playing dress up and the like. Good times!
What if Rihanna‘s filthy, sexy “We Found Love” video hadn’t featured a bleached-blond Chris Brown look-alike? What if Rihanna had instead been crying/hooking up in a filthy bathtub with one Mr. James Franco? According to the Spring Breakers actor, he was actually RiRi’s first choice in love interests. “She actually asked me to be in that video, the one with the relationship that gets crazy,” Franco told MTV Canada. “I couldn’t do it. But, I guess, I hope that that means there’s mutual love between us.” And we could have seen that mutual love on-screen? Come on, you two!
Franco’s story kind of contradicts reports that Rihanna “hand picked” model Dudley O’Shaughnessy to play her breakdown boyfriend, a casting choice that then sparked rumors the video mirrored her relationship with ex Brown. How we wish Franco would have been free! Luckily there’s still a chance they might lock lips onscreen in the upcoming movie The Apocalypse. “I think she’s gonna be in the new movie that I’m doing, Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut,” Franco claims. “I think she has a little part in that.” No, James Franco does not explicitly say they’ll be kissing in The Apocalypse. Please let us enjoy our filthy, sexy fantasies for as long as we possibly can! We don’t come to your work and point holes in your logic, ruining your dreams, now do we?
Unlike the majority of the world, Molly Ringwald has only managed to get better looking with every passing year; when she’s 100, we’re all going to need sunglasses to watch The Secret Life Of The American Teenager. While answering questions for her Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session, however, the Sixteen Candles actress finally revealed how she’s achieved such levels of gorgeousness. Asked by a fan how she “manage[d] to get hotter with age,” Ringwald replied, “I drink the blood of Kristen Stewart.” We wish we could say we were surprised, but this makes total sense to us. No wonder KStew doesn’t smile a lot…
Ringwald also spilled a few other juicy tidbits, like how director John Hughes almost fired Judd Nelson for being a jerk to Molly the set of The Breakfast Club (“It’s true,” she admits. “I think Judd was doing the method actor thing during rehearsals. He was wearing Bender’s clothes and trying to annoy me.”). Molly was also kind of offered the lead in Pretty Woman, which of course later went to Julia Roberts. “I think I saw an early draft and it was called $3,000. I don’t specifically remember turning it down,” the actress explained. “The script was okay but I gotta say, Julia Roberts is what makes that movie. It was her part. Every actor hopes for a part that lets them shine like that.” Hmmm, makes us wonder how much KStew blood Julia has gulped down in the last few years. Seriously, we’re surprised Kristen can even stand up on the red carpet!
