Aqua blue never looked so fine! Three exceedingly sexy women ended up wearing the same shade of sea foam to the Emmys and we’re having a hard time choosing who looked best. On the left, we have the sinuously sparkly Sofia Vergara, who poured herself in this fishtail, sequined Zuhair Murad gown, which earned her a best-dressed nod. Also, in a sparkly, aqua fishtail dress was the very glamorous Julianne Hough, only she wore a Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture gown. And if you think that’s all the sexy we got, have a look below.
Heidi Klum brought her A-game in this double-slitted gown by Alexandre Vauthier, which landed her on the best-dressed list as well. We love the draped, free-flowing detailing. Deciding between this trio is making us … blue in the face. Apologies. We couldn’t resist. But they do look fabulous, don’t they? Hit our poll up to let us know who you prefer.
The hot sun, the warm sand, the intoxicating scent of bug spray: yes, the summer time is prime time for hook-ups, both celebrity and original flavor. From the clam-chowder-and-madras-plaid love of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy, to the surprise engagement of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger (their wedding is going to be designed by Hot Topic, right?), check out our favorite hook-ups from summer 2012, and wish you hadn’t spent the last three months inside on your computer:
A picture is worth a thousand words. In this day and age, that can be translated into, a Twitpic is worth a thousand words. But we’d really like Sofia Vergara to fess up and tell us what those thousand words exactly are, because curious minds want to know. Sofia’s celebrating her 40th birthday in Mexico, where she’s been partying it up since Saturday in Cozumel and Playa Del Carmen with co-stars Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sarah Hyland and others. Sounds like mad fun, and her twitter account reflects that, with tons of photographs and updates as well. A friend of hers tweeted the photograph you see above of Sofia holding a glass of champagne with some friends. Look at the hand holding the glass, though. It’s her left hand, and it has a giant diamond ring on it! Engagement, much? Did her recently on-again boyfriend Nick Loeb pop the question?
E! seems to definitely think so, even though we haven’t got a confirmation from either Loeb’s or Vergara’s people. They’re reporting that Nick popped the question on Monday night, during the celebrations, and a source has also said that she was “bouncing around and showing everyone the ring” the next day while at the Rosewood Mayakoba resort, which is where they’re staying. If this is true, then what a wonderful story it’s turned out to be. Vergara and Loeb split briefly two months ago, and while everyone thought they were completely kaput, they got back together a month later. That rock does look like the engagement sort, so even though their reps aren’t talking just yet, may we offer our congratulations to the happy couple!
Sofia Vergara is blowing these days, appearing as the face of CoverGirl and Diet Pepsi. She has also continued to delight the world playing the hilarious and sexy Gloria Pritchett on ABC’s hit show Modern Family. A two-time Emmy winner, Modern Family has truly become the TV’s ruling comedy with Sofia reigning as its Queen. Adding humor and a kick of muy caliente Spanish flavor into every project she works on, this Colombian beauty has taken hold of Hollywood and keeps us begging for more — just hopefully no more smoking instances like her one on the cover of Vanity Fair Spain. You worried us Sofia, but you’re still a winner in our minds! We just wish we had gotten on the Vergara train earlier when she was making headlines in Central and South America for her acting and modeling career. But hey, we can at least try to make up for lost time, right?
In celebration of Sofia’s 40th birthday today, we have compiled 40 of her very hottest looks. Trust us: you will not be disappointed. This girl has a remarkable ability to make anything look pretty damn sexy with her killer curves and mile wide smile. Enjoy but look with caution: you may develop a girl crush.
If Page Six, has their story straight, then it seems that Sofia Vergara is back to being a singleton. The site reports that she has split up with her boyfriend of an excess of two years, businessman Nick Loeb. Note that she attended the Met Gala solo, but the consolation is that Sofia did make it on our best-dressed list! That Marchesa dress on her was just ace. It sucks that they’ve broken up, but it helps coming out of a split looking the best you ever have, right?
Apparently, the ex-couple called their relationship off last weekend after a long spate of arguments. A source reveals, “Sofia was confiding in friends at the ball that she and Nick have split. They have been fighting a lot recently and have been on the brink of splitting many times. It is not yet clear if they are over for good, but they are done as a couple for now.” We have a feeling that she won’t be single for too long. Not just because of the way she looks, but because she seems like a pretty awesome woman too!
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.
The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has really become the hot ticket in town. We already know that Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan got invites, for which they were probably very thankful. Now if only they had dressed with gratitude. We’re definitely not saying that no effort went into putting their looks together. It was just all directed the wrong way for both of them. Lindsay’s black satin halter-necked gown and Kim’s heavy green satin version ended up looking tacky. Sorry, ladies, better luck next time. This was Kim’s second time at the event so she should’ve known what to expect. There were plenty of sartorial winners, though. Charlize Theron, as always, nailed it in an Emilio Pucci lace overlay column with Manolo Blahnik heels and a Judith Leiber clutch. Reese Witherspoon was glam in a black Monique Lhuillier gown and stunning turquoise and emerald drop earrings by Irene Neuwirth. Sofia Vergara and Anna Paquin wore black too, with Vergara picking a black textured brocade David Meister cocktail frock, and Paquin, a Hervé L. Leroux gown.
The list of celebrities is a bit of a roll call, but we’ll try to do justice. There was a fair amount of white that popped up. Claire Danes wore the color through an edgy Vivienne Westwood gown, Malin Akerman wore a slightly peachier version of the shade in a vintage Odicini Couture dress. Eva Longoria wore a shorter, Marchesa cocktail variety, while Ginnifer Goodwin wore a snowy H&M frou-frou long, layered number. The supermodels also picked that color with Irina Shayk looking terrific in a slinky wide-legged jumpsuit and Kate Upton who sadly, ended up looking frumpy in a frilled, lacklustre dress. Dakota Fanning and Zooey Deschanel wore textured pastels; the former with Prada and the latter with Oscar de la Renta. Going in the opposite direction with splashes of color were Elizabeth Banks in vermilion Antonio Berardi peplum gown, Rosario Dawson in an emerald Armani Prive very low-cut dress and Viola Davis in a deep orange Amsale sweeping number. We also loved Kate Hudson‘s sequined purple Jenny Packham gown.
Perhaps the only person who went really crazy with a print was Leslie Mann who picked a wildly floral one-shouldered, Naeem Khan gown. Another woman — who is kind of beyond celebrity — wore the same designer and totally showed up Mann, though. Michelle Obama picked a strapless jazzed-up printed Khan dress and rocked the hell out of everybody. See for yourself in our gallery below.
Sofia Vergara is amazingly sexy. All of us know that. But Esquire decided to chisel that fact in stone by putting her in a corset on the April cover. And just in case the point wasn’t being driven home enough, they also put the words “sex” in huge letters right across the page. Thanks, Esquire. We get it. We’re not huge fans of Pinup-Girl 101 pit shots, but the Modern Family star knows how to work it like it’s never been worked before.
We also had a good laugh reading the interview, which is, in essence, an American man’s guide to understanding a Latina. It was funny, sharp and will probably be the reason why there will be a huge exodus of men swarming to Colombia. That will happen because of how Vergara describes bathing suits there. “There’s nothing slutty about a dental-floss bikini. You don’t even think about it. The first bathing suit your mother buys you is in the shape of a triangle,” Vergara explains. The addendum was, “Well, in Colombia everybody’s very voluptuous and you’re supposed to be. You don’t want to be skinny when all of your cousins are mermaids. You grow up thinking that’s how beauty is.” See what we mean? Our apologies for interrupting you. You’re already booking a one-way ticket, aren’t you?
Swooping cowls, cut-outs, drapes, racer-backs, sheer lace work … Golden Globe gowns were as sexy from the back as they were in front this year. Whether it was Lea Michele‘s sheer silver Marchesa to co-star Dianna Agron’s and Evan Rachel Wood’s avian-inspired, red-hot lacy Giles Deacon dress and Gucci Premiere emerald gown, respectively —- the back is officially back. A couple of other favorites include a Glee actress again. Naya Rivera stunned in a silver Vera Wang gown which had a lovely keyhole back. We also truly appreciated the back view of Kathleen Robertson’s Maria Lucia Hohan dress, Stacey Keibler’s stunning Valentino, Kate Beckinsale’s Roberto Cavalli and Heidi Klum’s sexy Calvin Klein. Click through our gallery for the all the different looks and let us know what you think.
There’s a party going on right here at the Beverly Hilton. The Golden Globes truly are a celebration to last through out the year. (Check out our favorite moments from the show!) Dare we say that it might even be the most fun night in Hollywood… EVER. Everyone — press, crew, celebs — is in good spirits, the booze is plentiful, and the emphasis is on having a good time. And everything is so pretty! The Beverly Hilton is a beautiful and iconic spot any day of the week, but there’s something extra magical about tonight’s event. The red carpet actually felt like a living, breathing thing and it. Is. FIERCE.
But the best part of the night was, of course, hearing from the winners, in all their sweet, excited glory. We were stationed in the press room and had the privilege of listening to all their best moments — from the absolutely ridiculous to the downright cry-worthy. We count ‘em down for you below.
Octavia Spencer kicking her shoes off in the middle of answering questions, and then delivering this important message: “Christian Louboutin, I love you, but when you have this much weigh you gotta give us a little platform.”
George Clooney answering the “Where is Ryan Gosling?” question: “He’s [working] in Thailand. And you know what they do in Thailand.“
Matt LeBlanc having a “Joey” moment onstage, answering a reporter’s question with “How you doin’?”
