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.
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!

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.
What Britney’s Thinking: “Really? Those shoes with that dress. Don’t you have a stylist?”
What Britney’s Thinking: “Y’all didn’t tell me these were sour Skittles!”
Great news for McKayla Maroney and fans who were hoping to see the Olympic gold medalist on the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastic Champions: She emerged from an unspecified surgery on Thursday and was soon back to her tweeting and Instagram-ing ways. “I’M ALIVE!!!! hahaha just kidding..(; I just woke up from my surgery a little bit ago and was told it was successful!!#ThumbsUp #ThankGod,” she wrote in a caption to the above photo.
Both McKayla and fellow Fierce Five member Aly Raisman injured themselves on the uneven bars during the Kellogg’s tour stop in Ontario, California, on Monday. Raisman bruised her knees, but Maroney fractured a tibia, according to USA Gymnastics. We’re unsure if that was the reason for her surgery on Thursday.
Of course, a little injury wasn’t about to keep McKayla or her fans from keeping her infamous meme going. She retweeted this pic sent to her from fans.
It seems like it was only yesterday when we were looking at the tattoo inside Ke$ha‘s mouth. Well, it was yesterday, but that’s only because we happened to be looking at our 20 Worst Celebrity Tattoo post. Apparently a lot has changed to Ke$ha’s style since, um, late June. We got a few hints that the Animal singer was upgrading her look at the VMAs: first when host Kevin Hart riffed about her failure to wear a shocking/busted outfit, second when we saw her hair. That gorgeous champagne blond! That’s some Gwen Stefani hair right there. Check it out after the jump if you didn’t see it the first time around. There weren’t any visible roots or bugs in it or anything!
Then we saw photos of her stepping out in Hollywood at the premiere of Book of Mormon last night. A crisp white blazer unsullied by Dorito dust or Jack Daniels vom? This seems like a change for the better. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t mourn the passing of Dirtbag Ke$ha with a few of our favorite unkempt looks. Like the Bible says, to everything there is a season. The Bible is an allegory about Ke$ha’s wardrobe, right? Oh good! For a second there we thought we had wildly misunderstood everything up until now.

Since Ryan Lochte is planning to launch his own fashion line soon, it makes sense that he’s all over the runway shows of New York Fashion Week. But now we’re kind of wondering how much he’s actually studying the fashion and how much he’s studying the ladies near him in the front row. But that’s his job too now, right? His antics with Prince Harry practically proved he’s ready to be American royalty, and thus we are obsessed with matching him up. How fitting, then, that the latest object of his attention appears to be Miss USA herself, Olivia Culpo. The pair were first spotted together last week, at a show for Evening Sherri Hill, and later that night at 1Oak. “We just met last week, so I can’t say anything for that, but he’s a good guy,” she told reporters.
But Ryan was even more effusive about the beauty queen when E! caught up with him yesterday, when he was again snapped in the front row with Olivia. “She is beautiful. I love hanging out with her. She has a great sense of humor, she makes me laugh, she’s just a good girl to hang out with,” he said. “She was telling me yesterday that she had never done a pageant until like a year ago, and now she’s Miss USA. She’s got something.”
Wow, those were a lot of words coming from the notoriously brief interviewee, which means either he’s getting better at this, or he’s in loooove.
And in other news, he made some great faces with Tyra Banks…

In this day and age, what famous person hasn’t inadvertently shown America their naked parts? Sure, maybe other celebs like Scarlett Johansson and Christina Hendricks had their photos hacked or leaked where as The Newsroom‘s Alison Pill just…accidentally tweeted one to the the entire Internet herself, but the effect is still the same. “Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies,” the actress explained via Twitter this afternoon…like a boss.
Because isn’t that the correct attitude for a celeb to take after the world sees a private photo, perhaps one intended for her fiance Jay Baruchel? “Oh, my bad. Just naked for a minute. Sorry about that!” This is the Internet, people! We’re all going to have naked photos floating around eventually! Maybe Alison was especially blase about her accidental flash because, as Egotastic points out, she already went topless in 2005’s Dear Wendy. Can the majority of the naked people on the web say as much? We’ve never seen Dear Wendy, but we assume not. We would have heard about a movie where millions upon millions of people took their shirts off.
Hmmm, which one is less appealing: Chris Brown‘s new prison-style neck tattoo, or the gold grillz Rihanna paired with opaque lilac lip gloss night? On one hand, Rihanna can take out the aforementioned grillz whenever she wants, rather than, say, having to pay thousands of dollars to have them lasered off. On the other hand, Chris Brown can walk into any restaurant in the world and immediately enjoy a nice meal unhindered by his sugar skull/MAC advert/alleged portrait of RiRi getting in the way. What’s the point of wearing grillz to Giorgio Baldi, knowing that you’ll have to excuse yourself to the ladies room, spit them out and keep them in your purse wrapped in a napkin? Unless we completely misunderstand grillz? Which is more than possible?
We don’t even want to go into the hair. There just aren’t enough hours in the 24/7 news cycle to discuss the half-shaved pink-and-lime studded business sprouting from Avril Lavigne‘s scalp at her Abbey Dawn fashion show in New York last night. Plus we don’t want to have to admit that we kind of like it. What we don’t like, however, is the greasy conjunctivitis-chic Avril chose to smear around her peepers. We guess you’d call it a smokey eye, in as much as our eyes started billowing smoke the second we looked at it. While we’d argue that Avril’s hotness still manages to shine through, that is not the case with these other makeup disasters…

The air is crisper and cooler; it’s a little darker when I leave the office, and the public pools are closed. I’m always of mixed emotions when we think about the end of summer, until I remember that my DVR will soon be filled with new imaginary friends and enemies. Of course, I’m also happy to see the old ones return — and you should totally have your TV locked on VH1 at all times — but I thought I’d take a second to tell you about the top 10 new shows I’ve had a chance to check out and am already either totally hooked on, or willing to ask out on a second date. Beginning with my favorite…
No one does TV pilots like J.J. Abrams. And for this one, the Lost/Alias/Felicity/Fringe creator teamed up with Iron Man director Jon Favreau and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, so it’s no wonder it looks and feels like a movie more than an hour-long drama. I am already totally hooked on the quest of a girl named Charlie whose father maybe probably knew why all the power in the world went out 15 years ago, especially because her quest involves finding her uncle Miles, who happens to be played by Billy Burke. Also, there’s some kickass, Lost-ian world-building for good measure. Premieres Monday, September 17, at 10 p.m. on NBC.
What the Critics Say: “Favreau brings a lot of strong energy to Revolution, giving appropriate weight to moments like that opening sequence and delivering action that is more notable and big than is normal for network TV – a sword fight Miles has with multiple foes is incredibly fun and cool, and instantly helps Burke (bringing the right world-weary vibe to the proceedings) establish that yes, the dad from Twilight can play a kickass hero.” — IGN
The Mindy Project
Mindy Kaling won fans and fame playing cute in front of the camera and smart behind the camera on The Office. Now we get to see her meld those qualities more smoothly (again in front of and behind the camera) in a way that will have many ladies nodding their heads as much as we’re rolling on the floor laughing. Her character, OBGYN resident Mindy Lahiri, aspires to live in a romantic comedy — and succeeds in at least getting to part in those movies where she dates the wrong guys, gets in hilariously slapstick disasters and shows how much pluck and ingenuity she has when it really counts. Not life-changing stuff here, but totally endearing entertainment. Premieres Tuesday, September 25, at 9:30 p.m. on Fox.
What the Critics Say: “It warms me to the the cockles of my heart to see a female protagonist on television who is not white or movie star skinny looking hot, banging babes, making mistakes, and being hilarious, and I can’t wait to see the rest of what Mindy has in store for us.” — Crushable
The iconic rapper Missy Elliott is ready to make a triumphant return to music today following a four-year hiatus. It’s been way too long since “Shake Your Pom Pom,” and we’re counting down the minutes until 7 p.m., when she drops not just one, but two new singles! In honor of her comeback we’ve decided to give you a look into the influential rapper’s closet of Supa Dupa Fly looks. Whether it was wearing a big black latex balloon as jumpsuit or full-out Adidas outfit, Missy has always brought us some of the most outrageous clothing the entertainment world has ever known. Today we see the insane looks from Nicki Minaj, but let us never forget about Missy E’s flamboyant jumpsuits and out-of-control costumes. We’ll be reminded of how she can push the limits and “Work It” soon enough with the new album that’s on its way.
Missy has made a few appearances on songs in the past few years like on Demi Lovato’s “All Night Long,” Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (Remix),” and J. Cole’s “Nobody’s Perfect.” Let’s hope we get more looks to add to the Missy’s craziest looks repertoire with this new era of her solo career!
