Let’s not mince words here. American Hustle, more than anything, was a foray into the many and varied ways into which Amy Adams‘ cleavage could be exposed. From spangly dresses with plunging necklines to the more humble wrap around dress, Adams’ greatest assets were consistently and brazenly on display. Not that anyone is complaining.
Thanks to awards season, Paris Fashion Week and, well, some sort of crazy vapors in the air (did that West Virginia water get farther than they said?) we had an overabundance of choices for this week’s worst-dressed list. In this supersize edition, we have a couple of Love & Hip Hop lovelies, Kanye West in a giant fur coat, and a nice selection of over-the-top red-carpet numbers.
Congrats to Lupita Nyong’o on picking up her first (of what we hope is many to come) Oscar nomination for her role in 12 Years a Slave. The actress has enjoyed a big few months since the movie’s release thanks to a number of honors and accolades for her heart wrenching performance as a tortured and brutalized slave. While she commands a serious presence on screen, her life off has been anything but. A peek inside her Instagram account shows the adorable side of Nyong’o as she goes from awards show to awards show, picking up trophies and new celebrity besties along the way. Oh, hugging Lena Dunham? Check! Selfies with Jared Leto? Mark it off the list.
We can’t wait to see what she’ll post at future shows and who will make her Oscars Hug Checklist. We hope it includes fellow nominees Jonah Hill and Jennifer Lawrence.
Few hairstyles are chicer than the topknot right now — it’s the look on runways and red carpets — and ladies, we really have Kourtney Kardashian to thank. A couple of years ago, she made the sleek high bun her signature, rocking the glam style to events and on Keeping Up With the Kardashians (and its spin-offs!). Soon, all of her siblings followed suit (sans Rob, we assume), which inspired a slew of “Kardashian topknot” tutorials on YouTube.
Can you believe Sports Illustrated’s revered tradition of ignoring athletes for one issue a year and devoting an issue to lovely ladies rolling around in sand has been going on for half a century now? Good ideas do have staying power! Last night, longtime veterans — Kathy Ireland, Cheryl Teigs, Heidi Klum — of the Swimsuit Edition partied with newbies (and wannabes, like Ireland Baldwin) in Hollywood, for a celebration that will eventually be televised on NBC on February 3.
Ah, the perm. A remnant of ’70s and ’80s “fashion” that we can be glad to have left behind. But have we really let go of the perm? With Bradley Cooper sporting an impressive man-perm in American Hustle recently, a nostalgia has been sparked for the admittedly stupid, but strangely endearing, hairstyle.
Ask any celebrity and they’ll tell you that there’s just as much stress involved in walking a red carpet at an awards show like the 2014 Golden Globes as there is sitting in your seat wondering if you’ve won or lost. In order to deflect some of the stress and anxiety, many celebs choose to partner up and tackle the carpet with a friend, a family member, a spouse, or even a potential lover. Sometimes, this arm candy means that the celebs are more relaxed when they’re speaking to Ryan Seacrest, and other times, you can see the couple barely being able to fight off the urge to make a beeline straight for a bathroom stall for some pre-show nookie.
The Golden Globes are one of the biggest red carpet fashion nights of the year. Television stars mingle with Hollywood royalty, mega stars accessorize with hot arm candy and some of the biggest beauties in the world make major fashion faux pas. Some of these celebrities might be taking home an award tonight, but that doesn’t stop them from being the worst dressed.
When it comes to sex symbols, the big, busty stars get all the love. But what about their small-breasted sisthren? You don’t have to look like ScarJo or Kimmie K. to be scorching hot! Proportionally small celebs like Kate Hudson (the queen of all A-cups) and Kiera Knightley are just as wildly lusted-after. Plus, they’re fiercely proud of their bods, and have no problem proudly baring them for films and photo shoots. As Nicole Richie once said, “I used to want a bigger chest, but now I like being flat. Clothes fit better, and I don’t really need to wear a bra.” What’s hotter than confidence?
The truth is, no matter what you’re working with — whether it be luscious curves, or a waify frame — all boobs are sexy. But today, let’s salute our favorite flat-chested hotties! All hail the itty bitty t*tty committee.

We’re less than two weeks into the new year and still waiting for most stars to come out of hibernation and put their crazy getups on display — I mean, what are they afraid of, that they’ll appear in this post or something? That must be why they invented the People’s Choice Awards and the Palm Springs International Film Festival, to keep wacko fashions in the public eye at all times.
