Emmys Best Dressed: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler And Kat Dennings Work Their Curves

Let’s be real. Comedic geniuses and BFFs IRL Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have never looked better. Flaunting their figures in Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney frocks respectively, the pair looked confident, sexy and positively radiant. Whatever you’re doing, ladies, it’s working.

Other red carpet highlights included Kat Dennings‘ flawlessly foxy red-on-red look and Heidi Klum‘s doubly sky-high slits. Mad Men‘s Jessica Pare took a page from the Megan Draper fashionable playbook and rocked a custom Jason Wu black and white ensemble.

Check out our Top 10 Best Dressed at the 2012 Emmys below.

Emmys Worst-Dressed? Claire Danes, Zosia Mamet, Emily VanCamp And Others Troubling Us

Claire Danes, Emily VanCamp, Zosia Mament
First of all, no one on the red carpet of the Emmy Awards was particularly awful, well with the exception of Phoebe Price, who really goes for awful every time. But there was a handful of ladies — ladies whom we love and admire — who made us scratch our heads and want to send angry letters to their stylists. Mostly, there was a disturbing trend in being terrible to boobs. The gowns on Emily VanCamp, Claire Danes, Morena Baccarin and Zosia Mamet were rather unkind in the bust area, and after spending a little too much time admiring Kat Dennings‘ girls tonight, that just made us sad. Anna Chlumsky and Hayden Panettiere disappointed us by wearing gowns that would look amazing on someone 20 years their senior. Leslie Mann, meanwhile, made a terrible choice of color, and we wanted to rip the sleeves off of Julianne Moore’s gown and the ruffles off Elisabeth Moss‘.

Again, none of these were offensively bad. And maybe you disagree? Let us know in the comments and on Twitter!

From Amanda Bynes’ Mugshot To Kenan Thompson On SNL: An All That Nostalgia Check

The cast of All That then and now

Back when Saturday Night Live was wayyyy past our bedtime, the folks at Nickelodeon brought us All That to help with our burgeoning sketch comedy addictions. “Finally!” thought our 7 year-old selves. “A show that’s filled with kids my age, and it’s actually funny.” It was so cool to watch the crew carry a whole television series on their own. Hey, they were just like us! Except massively talented…But we didn’t know that then, and watching the youth-dominated cast made us feel like kids could do anything. This was a rare feeling during a time when we were lucky to put our pants on correctly.

Plus it was fun! The gang always looked like they were having the time of their lives as they performed bits that became comedy classics to us millennials. How could we have blossomed into functional adults without Lori Beth Denberg’s Vital Information? Who hasn’t wanted to be saved by Kel Mitchell‘s Repair Man Man? No matter how big he gets on SNL today, nothing Kenan Thompson ever does will ever approach the brilliance of Pierre Escargot. We’ve forgiven Josh Server for being so devilishly handsome that all the girls in our 2nd grade class had crushes on him. And no matter how much road-related insanity Amanda Bynes gets up to, we’ll never stop loving her for giving us Ask Ashley. Yes, we know it’s a bummer to see her this way, but head down to the gallery below to check in with the rest of the All That cast and see how they’re doing!

Ian Somerhalder Meets Gabby Douglas: The Best Thing On The Internet

Gabby Douglas and Ian Somerhalder

I thought my day was made when I saw that photo of Tyler Blackburn, Michael Trevino, Stephen Amell and other TV hotties on Bullett earlier today. But I wasn’t the only one to notice that the photo was suspiciously devoid of a pair of Salvatore brothers. Sometimes, all you have to do is ask the Internet, and you shall receive your heart’s desire. Actually, MORE than your heart’s desire. You receive one Salvatore brother, in the form of Ian Somerhalder, and one Fierce Five member, Gabrielle Douglas. (If this pic were photobombed by Paul Wesley and McKayla Douglas, I would spontaneously combust, so this will do just fine, thank you.)

“Eating @gabrielledoug ‘s Gold medal!yummmmmmm…,” Somerhalder wrote with the pic. Is Gabby making an appearance in Mystic Falls as Bonnie’s long-lost cousin? Pretty please?

Nina Dobrev, who used to compete in rhythmic gymnastics, was super psyched about Gabby’s visit to the Vampire Diaries set. “First thought at 530am when I woke up this morning: ‘What to wear when meeting an Olympian Gold Medalist?’” she tweeted.

BTW, Ian fans, the actor is participating in a live Twitter chat tonight at 9 p.m. with @TomsofMaine for something called #50SFG. And yeah, we got excited thinking that was a 50 Shades of Grey reference, but it’s actually for a nonprofit contest Ian’s helping to judge, called 50 States for Good. OK, we can get behind that too.

Barack Obama Tweets Jay-Z & Bey, Pirate Pics; Mitt Romney Won’t Do SNL – Whose Approach Will Win?

Obama with Beyonce and Jay-Z

Much to our disappointment, there weren’t any cameras allowed to document President Obama’s fundraiser hosted by Jay-Z and Beyonce last night. Well, none except the very official one that took the pic above, which was posted to @BarackObama earlier this afternoon. And that tweet was shortly followed by a nod to International Talk Like a Pirate Day (today) — a photo of the president talking to a pirate with the caption “Arr you in?” And Obama’s appearance on Letterman last night gave the show its highest ratings since 2010. Clearly, the president’s philosophy on mixing with pop culture is controlled but broad-reaching. It’s the kind of populist approach that garnered him the youth vote in 2008, so he’s sticking with it.

On the other end of the spectrum, we now know that Republican candidate Mitt Romney is very cautious about appearing on shows, as he said in his infamous (“47 percent”) fundraiser video posted by Mother Jones this week. Now that he’s appeared on Leno more than Letterman, he told supporters, “Letterman hates me now.” Though he was asked, he said he won’t be appearing on Saturday Night Live, because, “You want to show that you’re fun and you’re a good person but you also want to be presidential and Saturday Night Live has the potential of looking slapstick and not presidential.”

Lady Gaga In Amsterdam: Is This For Real Or Are We Smoking Something?

Lady Gaga in Amsterdam

This post is going up a little later than planned because we basically spent the past hour staring at the photo on the left. Our photo agency Splash News says that it is Lady Gaga performing in Amsterdam last night. And indeed, it is with a batch of other photos from the show. But even though Mother Monster does seem to have added a tiny bit of meat to her bones (insert meat dress pun), we don’t think this photo looks like her AT ALL. Especially when we see the photo on the right, which was taken this morning and does not show her to have a massive double chin. So, maybe you guys can help us decide. Is this just a terribly unflattering photo of Gaga? Or is it a body double she had onstage? We haven’t seen her on her latest tour, so maybe that’s part of her act? Not that we care if she gains weight — girlfriend has been touring nonstop for three years and she deserves to fuel her body.

We are less concerned about the NSFW video posted below, in which Gaga accepts and lights up a joint from among the many gifts thrown to her onstage during the show. She’s of age and it’s perfectly legal in the Netherlands. Some of you disagree and say she’s setting a bad example for the kids back at home. Well, it’s not like she’s lighting up on the Disney Channel. Parents, get your kids away from Youtube if they are susceptible to such examples — ’cause they’re bound to find way worse things than someone taking a little toke.

Mariah Carey Deflects Rumors Of Nicki Minaj Feud With A Look At Dem Babies

Mariah Carey and Moroccan Cannon

How could anyone keep up an arbitrary feud when they have cuteness like this in their lives, right? Not that we’re suggesting the timing of the release of another batch of super-adorbs pics of Moroccan and Monroe Cannon is in any way related to Mariah Carey quashing rumors that she’s feuding with fellow new American Idol judge Nicki Minaj. It’s just a very good argument in favor of Mariah being a sweet and fun mama, not the diva she’s been painted as.

“How are we gonna feud in two days? A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that],” Carey told MTV News as she sat with the rest of the judges before taping auditions in New York on Monday. “It’s fun, it’s music, it’s singing, it’s laughter,” she added of what her first few days as a judge have been like.

And now for your own fun, and cooing pleasure, here are the “Dem Babies” photos Mariah and hubby Nick Cannon released yesterday, the proceeds from which will go to the Fresh Air Fund’s Camp Mariah.

Happy Birthday, Tom Hardy! Celebrate His 35th With His 35 Hottest Looks

Tom Hardy turns 35

It’s been a bit of a long, slow climb to the top for Tom Hardy, but as the Lawless star turns 35 today, we think his success couldn’t come at a better time. After breaking into the scene as a model and stage actor, the Londoner starred in a number of British TV movies — notably making many swoon with his Heathcliff in 2009′s Wuthering Heights for ITV. Most of us on this side of the pond were still unaware of his talents, and those stunning blue-green eyes, until his role in 2010′s Inception. That basically opened the floodgates for him — he’s since starred in Warrior, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, This Means War, The Dark Knight Rises and Lawless. Next up, he’ll take over Mel Gibson’s titular role in Mad Max: Fury Road. But after seeing him rap to his young son, smile sheepishly after winning a modeling contract and play paintball with Reese Witherspoon, some of us are hoping he’s got some romantic comedy roles in the works too. In the meantime, let’s all wish him a happy birthday and fantasize that he’s starring in our own romance by perusing his 35 hottest looks:

Kanye Takes His Kim Makeover To Its Natural Conclusion, Puts Her In His Old Ill-Fitting Blazer

Kim Kardashian Blazer Fashion

Who puts a short curvy woman in a boxy blazer and takes away her pants? What Not To Wear‘s Stacy and Clinton must be spinning in their graves. Er…in their accessory closets right now! Kim Kardashian stepped out today to visit Jacob the Jeweler in New York while wearing what appears an old blazer Kanye received as a hand-me-down from his great-granduncle. When his grand-granduncle died. On his yacht. We were so aghast when we saw it, it took us a moment to notice that Kim is awkwardly holding the blazer closed. We shudder to think which of Kim’s outfits Kanye threw away to make room for this number. We’re assuming she does too.

Kim Kardashian

The only good part of Kim’s look is that it reminded us of Kanye’s verse on Nicki Minaj‘s song “Blazin,” which is what we’re going to call “Kanye making you wear a blazer dress” from now on. Our favorite part of Kim’s outfit it is how psyched Kanye seems over his sartorial selection. Look at his eyes! “Yes, my blazer looks very becoming on you. Then again, if I were on you…” and so forth. You know this is only the beginning, right? We’re going to see soooooo many Kanye outfits on Kim from now on. The man must own 1,000 pairs of baggy leather trousers alone!

What Britney Spears Is Really Thinking When She Makes Faces On X Factor

Britney Spears - The X Factor

The second night of The X Factor premiere was just as good as, if not better than, the first night. And our girl, Britney Spears, continued to be the star of the show, bringing insightful critiques to the judging table, as well as two MILF-worthy dresses. But what she wore and said weren’t the only unforgettable things about Brit Brit; she also gave face. Happy, disappointed, confused, she let it all hang out — and it was amazing! We couldn’t help but wonder: What the heck was Britney thinking at those exact moments? Worry no more, fine readers. We took it upon ourselves to find out (you’re welcome). Okay, so maybe we actually made all of these thoughts up, but luckily there’s some amendment in the Constitution that allows us to do so. We’re pretty sure our guesses are spot on anyway.
