These two stunning ladies are nothing short of a tangerine dream. We’re talking about Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Alba, who both wore shades of orange, albeit in different avatars, providing welcome pops of color on the Golden Globes red carpet last night. Jennifer went for a deeper shade of vermilion with her strapless, ball-gown inspired Christian Dior Fall 2012 couture number. It’s deceptively simple but the reason it works to beautifully, other than the color and how it offsets her brunette hair and creamy skin, is how amazingly structured it is. There’s not an ounce of fabric that’s out of place and the construction of the bodice is a masterpiece and cut beautifully. We love the tiny retro feature of it being cinched at her tiny waist, but they made that aspect contemporary by the use of a metallic belt. Romantic and all-class, this one’s worthy of applause.
Jessica on the other hand, went for a softer shade of coral with her Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2013 gown. We love the way it drapes and folds in a manner that’s not fussy at all, and the fact that she’s matched her lipstick to the shade of the gown is a beautiful touch. That amazing necklace you see is by Harry Winston and we’re in awe of it. That’s the kind of ice you wear when you know you’re bringing it. The whimsy of her Roger Vivier ‘Pochette Prisme Poodle’ clutch is a little indulgence most may disagree with, but it’s youthful and fresh, and we totally approve. And now to decide between Jennifer and Jessica. We’re not going there. Perhaps you can and tell us who you prefer?

Out of all the dramatic and not so-dramatic gown at the Golden Globes, last night, two stood out for being the most forward-thinking and outré. You may not agree with them, you may even be on the fence with them, but you have to admit that both Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman‘s gowns stand out from the crowd. And it’s a pretty hard crowd to stand out from, considering every A-lister is doing their level best to outshine the other. What makes these two gowns extraordinary is the key usage of embellishment, elevating, what would be regular black gowns to show-stoppers. Before we start, it’s also important to note that both ladies were extremely smart in leaving their hair and makeup neutral — and OMG, did their skins glow — so that their outfits took center-stage.
Kate’s black gown was a dramatic Alexander McQueen. It featured long sleeves and a little train, but the flash of skin, which was so sexy, was provided through a deep key-hole. And all that may be gravy, but the aspect we’re tripping over the most is the gold-leaf embellishment on the collar and the waist. The whole outfit has quite the impact, and is complemented by her little gold Roger Vivier ‘Boite de Nuit’ clutch, which was totally in keeping with the whole outfit. Giving her a run for her money, though, was Nicole’s gown, also by Alexander McQueen. How’s that for a synchronistic moment? The lovely actress’ gown featured some eye-catching bronze studs over the bodice, elevating her in the embellishment stakes. We usually demur from the semi-sheer trend but find the mesh detailing on her waist gorgeous. She iced up the look with Fred Leighton jewelry that was minimal enough not to interfere with her look. We’re sold on both. But who gets best embellishment, then? Which of the two McQueens will you pick? Vote, vote, vote!

Long Live The Queen! U.K. ‘s Esquire magazine has just crowned Miranda Kerr as their sexiest woman alive, and looking at the scandalously sexy cover, it’s not hard to see why. Kerr appears even more stripped down than her U.S. Esquire counterpart Mila Kunis, who earned her title a few weeks back. At least Mila had some pants, but the Victoria’s Secret angel graces her cover wearing nothing but a pair of panties! This is the woman who can look sexy while giving Terry Richardson a butt shot, so needless to say, the pic is pretty damn hot.
“We always have so much fun when we shoot,” she says in the accompanying interview. “My temperament’s flirtatious, so it’s second nature to me. I don’t really think of rules, as long as it’s classy and timeless and it’s something I wouldn’t be ashamed of. I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we’ve been given.”
The real question is: who is actually the sexiest woman alive? There can be only one, right? It’s a close race, and we definitely think Miranda gives Mila a run for her money. Check out the gallery below to see what we mean, and then cast your vote in our poll!
I want to preface this post by saying that, coincidentally, I now have the same hair as Ashley Greene‘s thanks to the fact that she just dyed her hair red. Maybe she and I can be BFF and discuss her need for a new wardrobe. That hair requires a whole lot of different clothing, as is evidenced by her outfit today. I really do want to love the hair on her but I find it ages her unnecessarily. She’s such a pretty pretty girl, that the color may just be too harsh on her. She was spotted with the new dye job in New York while have lunch with some friends. Ashley’s going to be making her way to South Africa to promote Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Her twitter gave us a heads up, as she tweeted, “Not gonna lie- I’m a little bummed to leave NYC while the weather is so perfect. But the fact i’m headed to South Africa makes it ok!” Wonder if she’s going to take her new hair with her? If so, I’m curious about her red carpet plan! Because she’s been doing fantastically at events of late, and that chestnut hair worked on her like a dream. Seriously, do you like this new hair? Here’s a little reminder and a comparison as to what she used to look like before the weekend. Vote and let us know which Ashley avatar you prefer —- brunette or redhead.

They say that less is more, and that’s definitely true for these lovely ladies who hit up the 2012 Emmys red carpet with short haircuts! Girls star Lena Dunham made her first big Hollywood event appearance since “Miley-ing” her hair a few weeks back, and just like Ms. Cyrus she looks ahhhh-mazing! We’re especially diggin’ the smokey eyes makeup. Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss also showed off her newly short ‘n’ blonde ‘do, while Julianne Hough had us fooled by pinning her long tresses in a cute 1920s flapper fringe. Ginnifer Goodwin loked adorable as ever with her trademark pixie, so there’s no surprise there. And then there’s Jeremy Davies, who apparently got into a fight with some hedge clipper wielding dude. Or maybe he just got run over by a lawn mower. In any event, it’s a dramatic look, similar to the hairstyle we rocked when we were three and cut our own hair. Get a closer look in the gallery below! And then cast your vote in our poll for who had the best short ‘do.

Here’s a rumor that’s sure to spark some serious debate, but we just wanted to pass it along. Robert Pattinson is reportedly considering a romantic reconciliation with Kristen Stewart. Rumors are surfacing that he is over his anger and seriously considering reuniting with his Twilight co-star and (ex?) girlfriend after she was caught cheating on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
“Rob was super angry for the first couple of weeks. Angry at Kristen for ruining what they had, angry at her for the public embarrassment, angry at Rupert,” a friend of Rob’s told Radar Online. ”But he’s starting to wind down and really think about what he’s going to do regarding his relationship with Kristen. He goes back and forth.” As usual in times of heartbreak, RPattz has been going to his friends for solace and support. Water for Elephants co-star Reese Witherspoon has let him stay in her Ojai vacation home to plan his next move/listen to “Everybody Hurts” on repeat.
Yet despite all of their help, his friends might be confusing him further by giving him contradicting advice about what to do regarding Kristen. “There’s definitely some friends who think he should just move on from Kristen,” the source continued. “But then there are others who still think Rob and Kristen really have a special connection and want him to give her another chance. He has a lot to think about and hasn’t decided either way right now.” A complicated situation indeed, and that’s without all of the stuff we don’t know about what their relationship was like in private. What do you think he should do? Let us know in the poll below. And hang in there, Rob!

Last night at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, Kellie Pickler wore a blush-hued, tiered Herve Leger by Max Azria Spring 2012 with gorgeous fringe detail with a pair or bronze platform Giuseppe Zanotti. The dress has rose-gold metal accents on the low neckline as well at the empire waist. We know this because we’ve had a good look at it — twice. Brandy also wore the same dress at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards a little over two weeks ago! The singer was on our best-dressed list of the night and paired the dress with gold Christian Louboutin “Lady Peep” slingbacks. The question is, whose look do your prefer? Kellie looks really pretty and even kind of wholesome even though the dress has such a plunging neckline. Brandy has more of an edge, giving the ensemble a retro-Diana Ross kind of feel! As always, the power of vote lies with you, so let us know who wins this “Battle of the dress” in the poll below!

Oh, Kate Middleton! My love for this woman is unconditional and no secret to you readers. But this love was sorely tested this weekend when the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Celebrations were taking place across the pond. We knew Kate would hit a home run — or, since it’s England, a sixer (cricket speak) — with what she would decide to wear. And she did, with a gorgeous crimson Alexander McQueen dress with her nude L.K. Bennett pumps, a slightly modified version of the McQueen Classic Skull clutch and a Lock and Co fascinator much like the lovely maple leaf hat she wore in Canada last year. Since she’s Kate, she also had the frock changed a bit. Sleeves were added, the hemline was lowered and the neckline was altered. Modest, yet gorgeous!
So imagine our chagrin when we learned that the same dress had already been seen on two starlets who come nowhere close to Kate’s sartorial stratosphere. The first is Tulisa Contostavlos (of sex tape notoriety) who wore the dress at The X Factor auditions last year, as seen on the left. The second is our very own Kim Kardashian, who wore it along with towering snakeskin Louboutins, in New York last year while filming Kim and Kourtney Take New York, as seen on the right. We think that Kate rocks the outfit the most, but are interested to know what you think. Vote in the poll below to let us know your top choice!

Love was in there air at the Lakers game on Saturday as two of Hollywood’s biggest couples made their way to the Staples Center and caught game seven of the Western Conference Quarterfinals. Newly minted mega-duo/future legal battle Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were spotted courtside cuddling together and holding hands, seeming very much in photographer-friendly love. The two only had eyes for each other, and it’s not hard to see why when you get a look at Kim’s skin tight leather mini-dress. Yeezy must have had a hard time keeping his mind (and eyes) on the game!
As cozy as they looked, the two declined a chance to be on the infamous Kiss-Cam. However, fellow super cute super couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel weren’t as shy, and gleefully went at it for the spectators. JT even stood up to cheer for the team and give Laker legend Kobe Bryant a high five! Which twosome was the most adorable Lakers couple? Check out the photos in the gallery below and let us know in the poll!
