Russell Brand Shaves Facial Hair, Signals Beard-Pocalypse

This has been a dark week for beard lovers around the world. Brad Pitt has parted with his scraggly facial hair, but we can pretty much all agree that was for the best. But now even Russell Brand has jettisoned his trademark scruff! Is this a sign of something bigger? Is this the first sign of the Beard-Pocalypse?

Apparently Russell shaved for his role in the remake of Arthur, so perhaps it isn’t the end of beards as we know it. But it is quite the change to Russell as we know him. Having recently trimmed his massive lion’s mane to a more manageable size, and lacking any trace of Jackie O rock-star sunglasses, this is the most we’ve ever seen of Russell’s face. Gaze upon it. What do you think? Do you prefer the clean shaven dapper dandy or the hirsute dark and menacing rocker?

Rihanna In Concert: A Portrait Of Latex & Lack Of Pants

SPL192806_001

Rihanna kicked off her “Last Girl On Earth” Tour this weekend in Vancouver, and all we have to say is wow. There are more insane costume changes than a Sex And The City movie in this show, and we’re bringing you a gallery of the most amazing, jaw-dropping ones we’ve found. The girl rocked everything from a Tron-inspired bodysuit to a glowing, LED-lit ball gown.

With Ke$ha as her opening act, we’re thinking this might be the only tour that can rival Lady Gaga‘s in crazy costumes and star power this summer. Check out all RiRi’s looks below and let us know what  you  think of the wardrobe spectacle, does it add to the experience or detract from the music?

Mia Wasikowska’s Dress: Not All Right

When Mia Wasikowska starred as Alice in Tim Burton‘s Alice In Wonderland earlier this year, she had the ability to make herself smaller or larger depending on what potions she drank. Looks like the top of her dress drank the miniaturizing one. That proportion is just all wrong and folks, if we can turn into our dad for a sec, it’s a real mesh. (Fabric puns!)

Mia was on the red carpet for her latest feature, The Kids Are All Right, and while we can appreciate the fashion risk she took, much like Gwyneth Paltrow‘s goth lace Oscar dress from 2002, there are major boob issues we can’t get past. On the other hand, Mia’s co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore are flawless and Amy Poehler, pregnant with baby number two, looks adorable.

Lady Gaga Dresses In Drag

lady-gaga-boy-200xOur friends at PopEater are suggesting that this is another moment for Lady Gaga to toy with the hermaphrodite rumors. Indeed it’s convincing, this photo of Lady Gaga dressed as a man…here’s why she did it and how her stylist is trying to cover it up.

Love It Or Hate It? Black And White On Greene

To earn the role of Alice Cullen, the only casting requirement was that Ashley Greene have the face of an angel, so of course she’s naturally beautiful. It’s just that sometimes, um, her clothes aren’t.

This long-sleeved white number that wore to the Antwerp premiere of Eclipse has potential – viewing it from some angles, it’s cute, but head-on it looks like a white potato sack with a black bra strapped across its front. What do you think, is the dress a mess or are we just projecting our jealousy because she’s gorgeous?

This isn’t the only outfit of Ashley’s that we’ve questioned, by the way – check out all her hottest looks in our gallery and see how it compares.

BET Awards: Bare Skin And Bedazzlers Aplenty

Chris Brown‘s tear-jerker of a performance wasn’t the only awesome thing about the BET Awards last night – his Bedazzled jacket which he wore to the event enchanted us too, as did so many of the other looks that hit the red carpet. Like, remember Brittany Daniel, star of the Sweet Valley High TV show? Well, um…if you didn’t remember her from her acting, you’ll certainly remember her for her strappy dress that shows off quite a bit of midsection. And the always awesome Nicki Minaj just looks like she took a cue from RuPaul’s Drag Race when she was getting ready. Never a dull moment on this red carpet, that’s for sure. Check out the best of the rest below.

Victoria Beckham’s Dress Doubles As Home Of Famous Grouch

claridges 5 240610

We really love Victoria Beckham, but sometimes her fashion sense makes NO sense. Like, for instance, this rigid dress she wore to the Diane Von Furstenberg Interior Design launch party in London. Is it just us or does this dress make it look like she’s emerging from a trash can, a la Oscar the Grouch? Unlike Oscar though, we doubt she can fit a swimming pool inside her can.

To check out Posh’s can from a few more angles, click the photos below.

Jessica Simpson Hangs Tough

SPL188333_002

What’s that shirt Jessica Simpson was wearing as she dined in New York City last night? Why, it’s only the shirt we and all of our other junior high school friends wore in 1991 to show our love and devotion to the boy band that started it all, the New Kids On The Block.

So is Simpson wearing the shirt as an homage  to the pop stars that came before her, or is it ironic chic? We don’t really care – we’re glad she’s showing some love to those Beantown boys, Danny, Donnie, Jordan, Jon and Joey.

Zach Braff And Fellow Thespians Celebrate The Public Theater

Just  the other day, we were thinking how it really takes a special person to be able to pull off a fedora. On some people, the hats look fresh, summery and cool. On others, they’re just kinda douchey. Maybe we have an irrational hate because Scrubs got so effing bad these past couple years, but we’re thinking that the combination of Zach Braff, his hat, his sunglasses and his date’s annoying forehead-headband are in the douchey camp.

Braff and his girlfriend, model Taylor Bagley, were at the Public Theater Gala along with a who’s who of theater-types, including Al Pacino, Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber and David Schwimmer. Schwimmer, by the by, debuted some new bangs that are somewhat Bieber-esque but still better than Ross Geller’s gelmet head  that so haunted us during Friends. Check out all the ac-TORs in attendance in the gallery below.
