When we first saw these photos of Brad Pitt arriving at the premiere of Moneyball, we couldn’t shake the urge to go bowling. After a few White Russians we realized that it’s because Brad seems to be turning into our favorite cinematic slacker, Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski! The scraggly hair, the graying chin-beard, the shades, the goofy laid-back smile…Come on! But that’s just our opinion, man. At least he traded an open bathrobe for a sleek suit. The Brad, or His Bradness, or El Braderino (if you’re into that whole brevity thing) arrived at Oakland’s Paramount Theater without his lovely lady Angelina Jolie on his arm. But he seemed happy to sign autographs and pose for pix with his co-stars Chris Pratt and (super svelte!) Jonah Hill. The Brad abides. Peep the gallery below to check it out!

TV fans the world over are tuning in to the Emmys: the small screen’s biggest night! Although always full of famous faces, tonight is an especially star studded affair with some of the brightest movie stars crashing the red carpet at LA’s Nokia Theatre. Zooey Deschanel, Ashton Kutcher, and Oscar-winners Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Winslet…Who let these guys in!? We can forgive em (we guess) considering Ashton and Zooey are staring in the most anticipated shows this fall (The New Girl and a Sheen-less Two and a Half Men), and Gwyneth and Kate are both nominated for the award. But it doesn’t matter if you’re actually a winner, as long as you’re dressed like one! Our favorites so far have got to be Vampire Diaries vamp Nina Dobrev in a redder-than-red-carpet gown, and Aubrey Plaza looking Old Hollywood hot in a white Marilyn-like number. And of course, bombshell Christina Hendricks destroyed the competition like we knew she would in a curve-hugging, high-slitted, low-necked silver dress. Check out the best (and the rest) in the gallery below!

Do not adjust your computer screen! A host of lovely faces turned out in their crazy colorful best last night at the Missoni For Target launch in New York City. The zig-zaggy styles are the trademark of the eccentric Italian designer Ottavio Missoni, who recently inked a deal to create a budget collection for the superstore. Elizabeth Olsen and Camilla Belle strolled into the celebration wearing stripey gowns, while Emma Roberts took a more casual approach in a bright cardigan. Looks like the only dress code for this shindig was “wild”. Other celebs to get ziggy with it include Selita Ebanks, Camila Alvez, Rachel Zoe and more. Check out more of the far out fashion in the gallery below!

We got up close and personal with Robert Pattinson‘s Gucci suit at the New York premiere of Water for Elephants on Sunday, and we almost had to ask him if we could use his tie to wipe up our saliva. Rob in a suit is TEH HOTNESS. His slender body has always been made for tailored formal wear, but he’s recently stepped up his red carpet game big time. Last Sunday’s look topped a recent trifecta of pure outfit excellence, alongside that maroon Gucci heritage suit at the Eclipse premiere and that gorgeous navy Gucci look at the 2011 Golden Globes. Coming in a close fourth: that Prada suit he wore to the Academy of Country Music Awards, which also gave us a case of the drools. We bow to whoever is styling the guy’s red carpet skinny tie-slender suit looks (Manager Nick, is that you?); you’re killing us softly with his suits. Telling our whole life, with his ties. Killing us softly…WITH HIS SUITS.
In honor of last Sunday’s fashion tour de force and the many international Water for Elephant premieres he has on his calendar, we present to you Robert Pattinson’s 20 Sexiest Suited Up Looks. Prepare to be UNFed!
Have you seen Hal Holbrook in Into The Wild? His storyline is our favorite in that movie (don’t worry, Kristen Stewart‘s #2) and he’s a seasoned and spectacular actor. On Sunday he told us that his Water for Elephants co-star Robert Pattinson impressed him with his “manner” and called him a “modest young man.” Everyone we’ve ever talked to about Pattinson has echoed Holbrook’s sentiment, and the few times we’ve interviewed him we’ve noticed the same thing. Humble RPattz is humble!
Holbrook, who plays the older version of Rob’s character in the movie, also marveled at how much he looks like a younger version of himself. His entire interview is very sweet – we love his thoughts on the megalomania of Hollywood, of which both he and Rob seem destined to avoid. Watch above.
Water for Elephants director Francis Lawrence is a music video director of iconic proportions (he’s also our new #1 DILF). His resume is massive and includes Britney Spears‘ “I’m A Slave 4 U” and “Circus,” Justin Timberlake‘s “Rock Your Body” and “Cry Me a River” and Lady Gaga‘s “Bad Romance.” He also directed I Am Legend, which could be the name of his autobiography. Naturally we wanted to know if he’d be interested in turning one of Robert Pattinson‘s songs into a music video. He’s game — but for a price! His very sweet answer is above.
At the Water for Elephants premiere Sunday night we interviewed the lovely Donna Scott, who plays Barbara in the movie. Without revealing too many spoilers, Barbara is one of the racier ladies lurking in the circus tents, and gets it on with a very drunk Jacob (Robert Pattinson). Donna gave us the deets on what it’s like kissing the “lovely” actor and told us that “every scene with Rob is an infamous scene.” Don’t we know it, Donna!
As for shooting that one scene where things get a little hot, heave and naked between Barbara and Jacob, she says, “Rob was more uncomfortable than I was!” Awwww, how sweet. Clip above.
Glamour Magazine celebrated it’s 20th Annual Women of the Year gala last night at New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall. The awards honor both the megastars, as well as the not-so-famous women who have made a positive impact in the world. Queen of All Media Oprah was on hand, as was actual Queen Rania of Jordan (WTF!? a real queen!), but every woman was dressed like royalty as they made their way across the red carpet!
You couldn’t miss Miss Fergie who sizzled in a red dress with husband Josh Duhamel. Kate Hudson killed it in a platinum off-the-shoulder gown, and honoree Julia Roberts made us feel all warm and fuzzy in a dark demure outer wrap.
Some celebs went for a more off beat look. Kelly Osboune hit the town in a peacock-like sequined top and retro peg skirt. Our beloved Janelle Monae somehow rocked the all-black plus cape look without crossing into goth or Batman territory, while Hilary Swank had a less successful fashion statement with her ancient-Greek-chic tight gold bodice.

The British are coming, and they look fabulous. The Los Angeles chapter of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts held their annual awards gala last night at the Hyatt Regency hotel, and Ã‚Â some of England’s finest talent turned out. A surprisingly cheerful Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen and his show-stopping mustache, and comedy legendÃ‚Â Stephen Fry all did Her Majesty proud as they strolled across the regal red carpet.Ã‚Â Marion Cotillard rep’ed the continent in a shimmering gray cocktail dress, and Irishman Cillian Murphy looked as cool as his icy blue eyes.
But America fought back with some of its own biggest stars, including Jeff Bridges, Dakota Fanning, Olivia Wilde, and Kevin Spacey, who showed off his new honorary Commander of the British Empire medal recently given to him by the Queen for services to drama! We don’t know what any of that means (he’s still American, right?), but we imagine if the Queen ever gives you anything at all, you take it. No questions asked.
And of course, it’s not a party until Betty White shows up. Check it out in the gallery below!
Since everyone and their mother (including us and our mothers) are shamefully giggling behind their hands this week about Courteney Cox Arquette’s husband and his emotional melt-down, it’s nice to see his sister Patricia Arquette defending David Arquette. Now, did she have to do it by losing her marbles on the red carpet? We’ll let the courts decide.
While with her bro at Wednesday’s ONEXONE Foundation Gala event in New York, Patricia hulked out on a group of reporters asking questions about the Cox-Arquette situation. Patricia snarled, “”How are you doing? How is your kid doing? Have you ever had anything happen in your life? WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the worst thing that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever had happen to you? Do you ever masturbate? Have you ever had an abortion? I mean, can you imagine these kind of questions? Can you imagine? Can you imagine? ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not alright! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not alright!” Patricia, don’t give David any more ideas! He was probably standing behind her the whole time, furiously taking notes so he knows what embarrassing things to bring up in public.
And is it really “not alright” for us to ask questions about Arquette’s very public, very gruesome separation saga? Normally we would (reluctantly) agree with Patty, despite our own burning, evil love of celeb gossip. However, if someone willfully goes to a shock jock and dishes on the intimate details of their emotional and sexual life in a totally cray-cray manner? Sorry: they clearly want the public to know. And if that person does it more than once? On HOWARD STERN? At this rate David is eventually going to get his own program where he just read’s Courteney’s old tax returns out loud and sobs. We won’t even going to pretend we wouldn’t TIVO that.
