From Natalie Portman And Scarlett Johansson To Clint Eastwood And His Chair: See Which Celebs Have Been Turning Up At The National Conventions

Celebrities at the national conventions

Election fever is starting to go full tilt as we cruise into fall, and celebs of all stripes have put in appearances at the national political conventions to show their support for their favorite presidential candidate! Democrats seemed to have the hotties in their corner, with appearances from Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Kerry Washington and Eva Longoria. Yeah, we all know about how most of Hollywood are Democrats (insert evil liberal media bias conspiracy argument here). But what can we say, the pictures speak for themselves! We also have some rap and R&B artists like Common, will.i.am and Mary J. Blige bringing the noise and the funk for Barack Obama. Even U.S. Gynmastic sweetheart Gabby Douglas got in on the red, white and blue fun!

Say what you will about their politics, but the Republican National Convention definitely rocked the hardest of the two. Mitt Romney and the gang had a hand from freakin’ Journey! But that’s not all. Axe-men from 3 Doors Down, Lynyrd Skynyrd shredded their strings for the GOP, and Kid Rock, Trace Adkins and Taylor Hicks also showed up to belt a few tunes. Plus, who could forget Clint Eastwood and his incredible empty chair? Head to the gallery below to check out all the famous folks who have made their voices heard at the national political conferences!

Rock Of Ages Fashion Flashback: Mary J. Blige Makes Us Love ’80s Jumpsuits All Over Again

Of all the ’80s fashion trends making a comeback these days, we shouldn’t really be surprised about the jumpsuits and rompers showing up all over the place. After all, they are pretty comfortable (even though you have to strip down every time you go to the bathroom #girlproblems). But we get the feeling that isn’t why Mary J. Blige was ready to take one of her costumes home from the set of Rock of Ages.

“All the jumpers are hot,” Blige, who plays strip club owner Justice Charlier, told VH1 News. “I think was the one with the braids, the silver jumper, I would wear that. Right now.”

Unfortunately, we have to wait for the movie to see that particular suit, but in the meantime, here are a couple of others, along with a few iconic ones from their ’80s heyday.

Ashton Kutcher, Ginnifer Goodwin, Coco And The 20 Best Celebrity Hats Of The 2012 Kentucky Derby

I’ll Have Another was wearing the roses after Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, but we all know he wasn’t the only star of the event, which has become as much about watching the attendees as it is about the horses. As in years past, celebs put on their derby best to enjoy a day of mint juleps and betting. Although there was little sun in the sky, the folks in Churchill Downs were still seen wearing everything from traditional Kentucky Derby hats to some more elaborate and daring headwear. Coco, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cyndi Lauper, Star Jones, Mary J. Blige and Miranda Lambert were among the ladies showing off straw, feathers, flowers and bows on their heads. Even a few male celebs, like Ashton Kutcher, Kellan Lutz and Joey Fatone, joined in on all the hat fun. Here’s a look at the 20 best celebrity hats at this year’s Kentucky Derby.

Find Out How Hip-Hop Royalty’s Fashion Sensibilities Have Changed Over The Years In Our Yo! MTV Raps Then and Now Gallery

All week long, we have been reliving the golden era of hip-hop; specifically, the late ’80s and early ’90s years that Yo! MTV Raps ruled the airwaves. If the nostalgia or the awesomely bad style moments hasn’t convinced you to tune in to tonight’s The 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Rap Moments, perhaps the then and now style evolution of some of your favorite celebrities will. In the most visible transformation, Ice-T traded in his pimp wardrobe for more refined wares. And Salt-N-Pepa retired the spandex (which we kind of loved) in favor of chic dresses.

You can watch the 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Rap Moments special on VH1 tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.

The Top 10 Awesomely Bad Style Moments of the Yo! MTV Raps Era

Yo! MTV Raps Fashion Fails

Looking back at the style choices of the Yo! MTV Raps era sends us on a trip down memory lane. How cool were overalls in the ’90s? They’ve even tried to make a comeback (to which we plead please, folks, let them die!). Seeing Tupac in his custom made T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E overalls or Bobby Brown with his slanted high top fade reminds us of a time when rap was fun. As cool as these styles seemed then, today they would almost certainly make the what-not-to wear fashion list.

It’s all in good sport that we poke fun at the awesomely bad style moments of the Yo! MTV Raps era. Speaking of which, our two-hour special The 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Raps Moments airs this Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET/PT. In the meantime, reminisce on the styles we loved then and chuckle at now.

The 20 Most Questionable Golden Globes Red Carpet Looks

The Golden Globes red carpet looks from this evening’s ceremony seemed to fall into two distinct categories: delightfully lovely, and highly, highly questionable. Is Jessica Biel actually wearing an old ill-fitting wedding dress? Was there no other, better way to get the message across to Justin? Was Zooey Deschanel‘s gown literally made out of Astroturf? How did Tilda Swinton get so insane-pantsuit fabulous? Check out the Golden Globes 20 Most Questionable Looks and let us know which look had you scratching your head the most.

VH1 Divas Style Seen: Jessie J Turns Heads With 3 Skintastic Outfits

Watch VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul Monday, Dec. 19 at 9/8c.

When VH1 Diva performer Jessie J stopped by to chat with our red carpet host La La Anthony about her jaw-dropping outfit, she explained: “I sat with Falguni and Shane Peacock and I explained to them that I need a dress that’s skin tight that makes me feel like a diva.” Mission accomplished, thrice! Her red carpet number, a sheer black dress with gold embroidery and crucifix imagery, was one of the most talked-about outfits of the night, possibly because it made only a feeble attempt to cover her bra and panties — although she sure kept her feet modest with that black curtain.

Mary J. Blige And Jennifer Hudson: Which VH1 Diva Rocked Neutral More?

Two of the biggest stars to walk on the VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul carpet last night, ended up wearing outfits of the same shade only to very different ends. We’re talking about Jennifer Hudson and Mary J. Blige, both of whom looked pretty nifty in a neutral. While Jennifer changed into four outfits through the night, it’s the short beige dress that she wore on the red carpet, and she looks gorgeous and tiny in it. Mary also wore creamy beige, but the hemline, as you can see on the right, was a lot longer. Her crystal embellished draped gown was by Michael Kors.

So there you have it. Both divas, both in beige. But who wore it better? Let us know in the poll below.

Top 10 Sexiest Diva Looks From VH1 Divas’ Red Carpet

Yank on your Spanx and prepare your side eye: the ladies of VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul, which premieres Monday, Dec. 19 at 9PM EST, turned it out on the red carpet. Metallics were huge at the event: Mob WivesDrita D’avanzo slipped into skin-tight gold, Estelle shined in Grecian-style bronze and Love And Hip-Hop 2‘s Emily Bustamante shimmered in off-the-shoulder gunmetal. Jessie J paired her gold with sheer cut-outs and an asymmetrical bob, while The Good Wife‘s Archie Panjabi dressed in slinky black. Jill Scott looked royal in blue, La La Anthony paired a fuchsia lip with herringbone and a slick updo (because she’s business, not casual), and a tiny Jennifer Hudson paired peach with a mint manicure. Looking heavenly, both Mary J. Blige and Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine upped the glamor with glittering white. We hope looking this hot doesn’t ruin anyone’s diva reputation. How can you demand to be shot from your good side when every side looks equally amazing? Check out the gallery below for the ten sexiest looks! (and a few more thrown in for good  measure…)
