Alas! Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is over, but its looks will guide our closets bravely into fall. True, there are some trends we will happily live without. (Seriously designers, what is with the fur? We are not living in the Game of Thrones nor do we have any desire to drape ourselves in dead animals.) But there are many others that we can’t wait to rock. Read more…
Wardrobe changes are a crucial part of award shows, but unlike Rihanna, not many of last night’s Grammy stars had THREE separate outfits up their sleeves. The frequent red carpet dweller dazzled on arrival, adhering to CBS and the Recording Academy’s newest wardrobe wishes, while still leaving the threat of a visible underboob alive and well via her two performance ensembles. But did the 2013 Grammy Awards feature her best award show looks yet?
With new wardrobe restrictions put in place for the 2013 Grammys, music’s biggest stars had to find other ways to turn heads that didn’t include the words “see-through” or “fleshy under curves.” In addition to hot arm candy, the best accessory for the red carpet and beyond was all sparkly everything. Check out the the best in blinding Grammy Awards bling from last night’s show, below.
Thanks to the rise of ultra snarky shows like Fashion Police, Hollywood’s A-List movie stars work their hardest during the 3-month slog that is Awards Season to stay out of the crosshairs of Joan Rivers and her band of catty cronies. Thankfully, our favorite musicians like Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Cee-Lo Green have no such qualms about making a genuine fashion statement on Grammy night.
So, Monday was a busy day for Oscar nominee’s and various other stars who buff up guest lists around this time. ‘Tis the month of the Academy Awards and the lead-up to it always has a bunch of events and and other awards shows crammed into a two-month period. The Oscar nominees’ luncheon happened in the afternoon, and as we’ve already reviewed, it was a bit of a boring affair, sartorially speaking. Things looked up a tad more at night, at The Hollywood Reporter Nominees’ Night at Spago, in Beverly Hills.
Where Jennifer Lawrence got it it wrong in Chloe in the afternoon, she fared better here in a nude, bedazzled Versace number with metallic, neutral peep-toe heels. The look is sexier, as the hair’s also thicker and more tousled. Now if only Jen’s team would get their lengths right. This dress should have had a couple of inches lopped off. Jessica Chastain‘s Erdem afternoon look was elegant and feminine, but she sexed it up for the night taking on a black Givenchy Resort 2012 peplum with a draped bodice, paired with a pair of hot smoky, kohl-laden eyes. We like the architectural effect, even though it’s a tad fussy. While Amy Adams earlier outfit somewhat tanked, she did heaps better at the THR bash wearing a lovely, lacy black, peplum dress. She didn’t ditch the nude heels, though. Why, Hollywood, why? With all the shoe designers of the world throwing shoes of every color and size at you — you pick nude, clunky pumps.
Many other celebrities walked the red carpet, as well. Naomi Watts was back, but this time, in a white blazer and tight silver pants which looked effortlessly cool on her. Julia Stiles was there in a deep purple, long-sleeved dress, while Morena Baccarin chose a white patterned flounced frock. Lauren Dern highlighted her incredible figure — how is this woman 45-years-old — by cinching her simple black dress with a belt. And finally, Natasha Bedingfield jollied things up wearing cherry red tights, as pants. We don’t even mind, because she has the personality to pull things off that most people can’t! You can see it all in the gallery below.

Football has taught us non-athletes many useful things, like sportsmanship, The Wave, and how to make nachos with “cheez” from a can. But most importantly, it has taught is that if you’re really good at tossing the ol’ pigskin, you get to date some of the hottest women in the world! We were reminded of this phenomenon a few weeks back when we got a glimpse of Alabama QB A.J. McCarron’s gorgeous ladyfriend Katherine Webb in the stadium stands. And as the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers this weekend, we’re probably going to see a ton of seriously sexy wives and girlfriends in the VIP bleachers, not to mention the cheerleaders on the field! Which Super Bowl team has the hottest ladies rooting for ‘em? Head down to the gallery below to see for yourself, and then cast your vote in our poll!
There are five adorable and talented young lads in One Direction, but you probably already know all about Harry Styles–thanks, largely, to a recent relationship and overly adorable string of dates both here and across the pond. The youngest member with the best head of hair, Harry has become a standout personality thanks to his charming interviews and growing tattoo collection. Now that that’s established, let’s all hit the pubs and raise a toast to Hazza, who celebrates his 19th birthday (yes, ugh) on this fine first of February.
With 1D preparing for their massive tour behind second album, Take Me Home, they’re spending less time in front of the camera than most of us would like. This allow lots to be left to the imagination–what kind of new ink has he gotten today and which young starlet/future girlfriend do I need to boycott now?!–but more than anything we want him to know how much we appreciate his assets on this special day. And because we know that you’d love to celebrate such a monumental occasion with precious Harry, behold a collection of photos (+ 1 for good luck!) that will warm even the coldest of hearts.

Alicia Keys has been making hits for over 10 years now, and you know what? She has not changed a bit! The piano playing soul-stress burst onto the scene with her incredible 2001 album Songs In A Minor (we’ve yet to figure out if they’re actually in that key), and she hasn’t gone away since. In the past decade she’s added “wife” and “mother” to her resume after having baby Egypt with husband Swizz Beatz. But even with those added roles she’s still busting out the hits, most recently with this fall’s smash “This Girl Is On Fire.” Hell, she might as well be singing about herself! Today the star turns 32 years old, so in honor of her birthday, stellar career, and awesomely unique style, we’ve assembled her 32 most sizzling outfits from over the years. We hope you enjoy it. Happy birthday, Alicia!

Betty White turns 91 years young today, and she is still without question the cutest human being in the known universe, ever, of all time, period, end of story. Don’t believe us? Then just head down to the gallery below and check out our collection of her 25 most adorable photos. Sure there are a zillion cute pics, but if we didn’t cap it at 25 we might be working on it until her 92nd birthday. So 25 it is!
Betty’s a lover of puppies, hot dogs, Christmas, stuffed animals, romps in the snow and (apparently) shirtless buff dudes. What’s not to love?! This year the world was gifted with a wax statue of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl (sorry Rue), thus giving us twice the sweetness – but nothing compares to the real thing. So here’s to you Betty, and may you be here for another 91 birthdays! And we’d like to take this opportunity to ask if you’d consider adopting our entire editorial department. Please?

Many people know Jon Stewart for one thing and one thing only: his long-running hosting gig on The Daily Show. While his sardonic political commentary is enough to make him an unforgettable entertainment legend, let’s not forget that Jon has in fact had employment elsewhere. We know it’s hard to believe, and even Jon himself poked fun at his unmemorable repertoire while hosting the 78th Academy Awards in 2006. “Tonight is the night we celebrate excellence in film, with me, the fourth male lead from Death to Smoochy. Rent it,” he joked. Let’s also not forget his riveting performance in The First Wives Club — which was later deleted — and his portrayal as Adam Sandler’s roommate in Big Daddy.
While it’s safe to say Jon Stewart may not be a draw at the box office, we are happy to say that he is a huge hit on the small screen. But a good rule of thumb in showbiz is: “Never forget where you came from, otherwise you’ll never remember where you’re going.” So in honor of his 50th birthday, we decided to pay homage to the career before the career, when his hair was a little less gray and his name a little less well known. We hope you enjoy it!
