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’?”

It’s that time of year again when we reflect on everything we’ve accomplished, as well as the things we probably could have done better (like eating a few less slices of pumpkin pie) and make heartfelt resolutions for the new year. After all of the indulgences of the holiday season, we normally include the plan to live a healthier lifestyle at the very top of our list. If you need motivation to get fit in 2012, look no further than our collection of the 100 hottest bikini photos of 2011. It’s sure to inspire you to finally use that gym membership!
We’ve ranked the top 10 hottest bikini clad ladies, and included another 90 wildly sexy bikini shots, in no particular order. Enjoy!
The 2011 Latin Grammys were held at the Mandalay Bar Resort and Casino in Las Vegas last night. And it seems that sequins and metallics were the order of the night. Zoe Saldana wore an emerald green column by Elie Saab (à la Gwyneth Paltrow at the Bambi awards, but minus the cleavage). ShakiraÂ — who was honored as the Person of the Year —Â looked ethereal in a goldÂ embroidered gown with a jewel-encrusted bodice, while Sofia Vergara wore a silver strapless gown byÂ Reem Acra. Paulina Rubio wore two outfits and both were heavy on the hardware. She wore a metallic silver gown on the green carpet, and put on a violet (with gold highlights) short, skintight romper to perform in.
The only one who didn’t get the memo was Demi Lovato, but she outshone everyone regardless in a plum gown that plunged down to her navel. It nearly popped our eyeballs.Â MuyÂ caliente! Also, the color Demi wore matched Wilmer Valderrama’s shirt. Cue eyebrow raising. Our gallery below has all the action, including gentlemen like Marc Anthony, Pitbull,Â Usher and Taboo.
Sofia Vergara is totally working it in Vanity Fair‘s October issue. The profile on her is short and succinct, but what speaks louder than any words is her photo shoot, which this lush black-and-white is part of. The other shots include the Modern Family actress stretched out on a couch and wrapped in mink (and nothing else), or smiling in leopard print lingerie. It would be a bit too much if it wasn’t photographed so darn classily. Because it is! Her make-up, hair and that SMILE are just right so even when we see her just about fitting into a blush-colored corset, you sigh and think ‘gorgeous’ as opposed to ‘trampy’! Look at the shots here and let us know if you agree with us?
Well it looks like someone in Hollywood felt the world is ready for The Smurfs in 3D, which had it’s premiere this weekend in Los Angeles. While we’re not quite sure how to feel about this, one thing is clear: Katy Perry looked Smurfin’ Smurftastic as she strutted down the red (er, blue) carpet. The California gurl played cartoon heart-throb Smurfette, the only female Smurf in the Smurf Village and envy of every Smurf in the land. We’re not sure if Katy dyed her hair blonde to get even closer to her cartoon alter ego (which she displayed proudly on her dress), but we’re diggin the new ‘do.
What do you think? Let us know! And while you’re at it, check out more pics of Neil Patrick Harris, Sofia Vergara and more Smurf stars in the gallery below!
Oh lord, you guys, are we getting this soft in our old age? Are we crazy to think that The Smurfs trailer actually makes the movie look…sort of cute? We know! It doesn’t add up: Katy Perry‘s vocal talents, Blue Man jokes and the use of Tone-Loc‘s “Wild Thing” in the trailer for a children’s movie should be enough to make us smurf our pants with disgust. That being said, look at their little mushroom village! Look at Sofia Vergara! Look at Neil Patrick Harris with a suit jacket filled with squirming blue creatures! We feel like we’ve been taking wizard-prescribed crazy pills, because we cannot deny how charm. Either that, or we were just so horrified by all the Chipmunks films that any other CGI-version of our beloved childhood cartoons looks better in comparison. Just the fact we didn’t see a Beyonce song makes us want to give them a Best Picture Oscar! There…there’s probably a Beyonce musical number, isn’t there?
