We’ve already seen Kristen Stewart doing her thing and speaking on stage to support 121212, a concert benefiting the Robin Hood Relief Fund to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City yesterday. But she wasn’t the only celebrity who turned up to lend their voices. Like Blake Lively, who looked lovely in an orange Isabel Marant dress with caged Christian Louboutin ankle booties and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Diddy was there too, as was Olivia Wilde, who wore skinny jeans and an awesome pair of red studded pumps. We’re guessing those are Louboutins too.
Katie Holmes showed up in head-to-toe Tom Ford in a pretty interesting cut-velvet, electric violet dress. Susan Sarandon was age-defying as usual, in all black, with a snazzy fitted zippered jacket. Martha Stewart even wore leather pants! Zosia Mamet puzzles us. She’s one of our favorite characters on Girls and seems hysterically funny but is always so taciturn in photographs. Like, this is a great cause … lighten up and smile a little! It’s okay that your pants don’t fit and your shirt’s making us drowsy. Chelsea Clinton was on the other side of the spectrum, looking polished and with a smile that didn’t leave her face, just like Gina Gershon, only the latter stuck to her usual rock chic and bedhead. She does work it, though! Read more…
This is going to be a long list, folks, so get some popcorn ready. There was so much material to choose from, from this year’s Met Gala that we drove ourselves into a tizzy. We weren’t ever fans of, say, peplum (gowns with an overskirt), but Solange Knowles‘ sunshine-yellow Rachel Roy number made us fans. Keeping up the bright trend was Katharine McPhee whose low-cut, unforgiving tangerine Elie Saab column was stunning. Emma Roberts wore a brighter shade of orange, and also incorporated peplum in her gorgeous Escada strapless gown. Moving toward red territory was a surprise entry: Chelsea Clinton. She wowed us in a cherry, lace-overlay strapless gown, and she totally needs to reveal who the designer is.
Other fab outfits were worn by Ashley Greene who picked a dreamy, Grecian Donna Karan gown and Amy Adams, who also wore white Giambattista Valli, with a cheeky gold bow detail at the waist. It was completely old Hollywood glamour. Another one of our red carpet favorites choosing that vibe was Amber Heard, a knockout in a dusty rose Zac Posen fishtail. The Glee gals represented and chose completely different looks. Dianna Agron went for elegant, romantic glamour in an emerald green Carolina Herrera gown. while Lea Michele picked a sexy, slashed navy blue Diane von Furtsenberg dress.
Our picks for best-dressed also include supermodel Jessica Stam wearing a pastel blue, almost gladiator-esque John Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture dress number with gold detailing, and Hilary Swank in a burgundy, halter-necked Michael Kors gown. There are a total of 16 looks to choose from in our gallery below, so check them all out, and tell us whose gown you like best.

Think back, if you can, to the summer of 2010. We know it’s hard to think of summer when the nation is blanketed in ice, but just try to remember the insane media spectacle surrounding Chelsea Clinton‘s wedding to Marc Mezvinsky. An entire area of upstate New York was immobilized when the pair chose to marry in Rhinebeck because Chelsea Clinton is, oddly enough, probably the closest thing our country has to royalty, and millions of dollars were spent on the lavish event. Now, reports are claiming that the marriage is already on the rocks, that Mezvinsky has fled their NYC home to go skiing in Jackson Hole, WY for months at a time without Clinton, and that drama ensued when Clinton said she wanted to start a family.
Sure, there are random unnamed friends who anonymously tell these gossip sites that “Yes! they are breaking up!” and “No! They’re doing fine!” and we’re inclined to believe the reports that they’re just fine. After all, the pair has been together for six years and have known each other since college, you’d think they’re pretty solid by now. But more than anything, we’re really just trying to convince ourselves they are happy because we’d be super pissed off if these people spent MILLIONS of dollars on this wedding and all these resources were completely wasted on a six-month marriage. The media spends this much time caring because, sure, they want to focus on the money and the Clintons and the glitz, but also because weddings are happy events that occur even during bad news cycles and it’s fun to focus on them. We really hope they’re doing okay because we don’t want this to end badly. That happens enough each time Charlie Sheen gets married.
This news may have slipped under your radar so we don’t blame you if you aren’t aware of it, but Chelsea Clinton got married this weekend. Oh wait, just kidding, it was apparently the WEDDING OF THE CENTURY.
While we wish Chelsea and her husband Marc Mezvinsky the best we also feel a little bad for them, thanks to the media frenzy surrounding their nuptials and the frenzy of “fans” (is that what you call people who dress in costumes and post signs all over town trying to get your attention?) that descended on Rhinebeck, NY, the site of the event. So in honor of the newlyweds, we’d like to bring you the top six creepiest people and things lurking nearby on their wedding day. Turns out the heavy police presence was justified after all.

No, that’s not a picture ofÃ‚Â Hillary Clinton being sworn in as Secretary of State, she’s actually involved in a secret pre-wedding ritual that rich people have. What she’s actually saying is “I, the mother of the bride, solemnly swear to shell out a sh*t-ton of money for my only daughter’s upcoming ceremony so that people will call it the wedding of the century.” Because Chelsea Clinton‘s wedding is reported to cost around $2 million. Excuse us while we cry into the irregular hanky we bought at Filene’s Basement.
What could possibly cost that much anyway? According to Politics Daily, the Clintons are spending up to $200,000 for the venue (Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, NY), $40,000 for the band (for that money, it had better be all four Beatles, living and dead), $250,000 on flowers (how is this even possible?) and TMZ reports that the glamorous port-a-potties the Clintons are renting will cost $15,000. To that we ask, if they’re spending that much money in the first place, why are the Clintons not holding the wedding in a place with real toilets?
Maybe the reason we find this all so offensive is that we’re the same age as Chelsea. When she went through her awkward phase, we were going through our awkward phase. When she was adjusting to life in Washington, D.C., we were adjusting to life in a new town, too. And after college, we both moved to New York City. That Ã‚Â teeny tiny bit of her that we identified with is all gone now. Now that we realize that her rental toilets alone cost more than our dream wedding.
Chelsea Clinton is engaged to boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, representatives for former President Bill Clinton confirmed to ABC News. The pair announced their engagement the day after Thanksgiving.
We’re sorry for the mass email but we wanted to wish everyone a belated Happy Thanksgiving! We also wanted to share that we are engaged! We didn’t get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us. Happy Holidays! Chelsea & Marc.
Chelsea is the only child of Bill and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Mezvinsky, the son of two former U.S. Representatives (father Ed served a multi-year prison term for fraud, ending in 2008), is an investment banker who has known Clinton since adolescence—even attending Stanford with her—though the pair did not begin dating until 2007. The National Enquirer erroneously reported in April that they were set to marry last summer.
The National Enquirer is saying that Chelsea Clinton is engaged and planning a $1 million wedding scheduled for this summer. The source tells the Enquirer, “Chelsea hasn’t even admitted that she’s engaged to Marc, but that’s not stopping her from planning a wedding.”
Chelsea has been dating boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky since 2007. Engagement rumors also swirled around Chelsea’s relationship with her college sweetheart Ian Klaus, who she split with in 2005. (Klaus famously dedicated a book he wrote to Chelsea, we wonder if there’s going to be a second printing of it with a new dedication?) The wedding, according to sources will be held on either Martha’s Vineyard or Hilton Head, S.C.
Medvinsky and Clinton met in 1993 (when they were 16 and 14, respectively) and lest you think the Clintons will be the only exciting in-laws here, Medvinsky’s father was an Iowa Congressman who was recently released from jail for fraud.
