This is totally ruining our high over the SAG Awards best-dressed list, but it has to be done. Also, how is it possible that Anne Hathaway swings so wildly between getting it so right, and so wrong — nothing in between. Sadly, she got it so wrong at the awards show last night wearing a twee, frothy, half-sheer Giambattista Valli Couture dress that just didn’t do anything for us apart from making us say, “Why, Anne?” We do love her accessories in the form of her Jimmy Choo ‘Kalpa’ heels and her black Edie Parker clutch. We may be a tad harsh on Jessica Chastain as well — but it’s only because her people never seem to get fits right on her. The red McQueen gown maybe a beautiful, but it looks like it wants to crush her breasts, and to add insult to injury, it looks rumpled. We really don’t like the Harry Winston diamond necklace on her, either. It’s the wrong piece for the dress. Also, twee and in the same color, was Kaley Cuoco whose red lace Ramona Kaveeza dress made her look like a doily, even though her red velvet Giuseppe Zanotti heels gave her cred. Does anyone else think the new haircut with the bangs looks like a wig?
Rose Byrne was the wrong woman for her Valentino Resort 2013 gown because the fabric and the ruffles made her look matronly. And while her hair and makeup were sweet and retro, Claire Danes went in the opposite direction with deep maroon lips that just looked incredibly harsh on her. They put us off, and her black Givenchy didn’t exactly impress either. Neither did Julianne Moore‘s Chanel Couture Fall 2011 gown, which like Jessica’s, had a major fit problem as well. Let’s just say the bodice took its cues from the name of the awards show and made her look like she was sagging. There’s more on the list, so carry on to the gallery to have a look.
OK, the Sundance Film Festival isn’t stooping to adult movie screenings just yet, but the festival was pretty excited to premiere a movie about pornography, so anything is possible. Actually, our friends at the Sundance Channel were also eager to share with us the photos from the premiere party (co-hosted by DirecTV), celebrating Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s writing and directing debut, Don Jon’s Addiction. He stars as the titular Jon, a Jersey boy who has no trouble picking up ladies as hot as Scarlett Johansson at the clubs, but for some reason still prefers watching porn to participating in the real deal. Tony Danza co-stars as his father — completing that 3rd Rock From the Sun/Who’s the Boss crossover fantasy you always had, right? — and Julianne Moore is a woman Jon meets at a night class.

You need no other reminder that the Golden Globe Awards are not just the Oscars and Emmys light than what the fashion-forward stars were wearing to on the red carpet. Sure, there were plenty of pretty ball gowns and shimmery sheaths, but some of our favorites knew that this was the event where they could take risks and go big with crazy prints and unconventional cuts. Sienna Miller, for instance, took a dress that could have come out of your crazy aunt’s mod closet from the ’60s, but the Erdem separates’ fit and her minimal makeup made it work. Anne Hathaway also went for separates, in glittery white Chanel, that showed of her body to perfection while also giving her a relaxed air. We’re kind of amazed that Lucy Liu’s Carolina Herrera did not remind us too much of wallpaper.
There were some more conventional wins tonight too — Claire Danes in a figure flattering red Versace, Julianne Moore in elegant black and white blocking by Tom Ford. And some on-trend looks we loved: Kerry Washington’s sheer with silver details. And overall, we think it was a successful night for most of the stars — whether they opted to take risks or not. Look through our 10 faves and tell us if you agree!
We know all know Jennifer Aniston got her start running in terror from a tiny evil leprechaun in, you know, Leprechaun, but did you know that most A-listers have a crappy horror film lurking in their past somewhere? From Paul Rudd to Jack Black, Demi Moore to Amy Adams, the biggest names in Hollywood have at one point been covered in corn syrup blood and chased by a prop chainsaw. So enjoy 10 amazing actors and actresses who had to pay their dues at the business end of a fake meat cleaver. Our personal favorite? Julianne Moore. Can anyone name a dumber movie death than hers? We honestly want to know!
We have to wait until March 15th to see Kimberly Peirce’s remake of Carrie in it’s full gory glory, but the nightmares will begin as soon as you watch this brand new trailer! Chloe Moretz’s stars as Stephen King’s epically angst-y teen, who sets her town on ablaze with her telekinetic powers after years of abuse at the hands of her classmates. Think “satanic Matilda” and you’ll pretty much have it! Julianne Moore also makes a turn as Carrie’s religious fanatic mother, arguably her scariest role since that time she playedSarah Palin.
Chloe recently tweeted onset photos, and her resemblance to Sissy Spacek in the original is pretty insane. Of course, all that blood definitely helps. The 15-year-old actress discussed her day on set filming the iconic school dance scene. “We had the wet blood, and the fire blood, and the dry blood, and all the different types of blood. The people at the front desk were all, ‘Wow, she must have had a really hard day at work.’” Fans of Brian De Palma’s 1976 classic will not be disappointed! Sadly the flick won’t be out in time for this Halloween, but on the upside it’ll be out just in time for prom season…
We’re normally quite happy to see bright citrus colors on any red carpet, but this year’s Emmy Awards may have changed all of that. Who doesn’t love yellow, right? Us, normally, but this time the shade was anything but a ray of sunshine at the event. Claire Danes‘ Lanvin toga-gone-wrong (we’re weeping that it’s a Lanvin) and Julianne Moore‘s Dior Couture fancy nun’s habit already got them on this year’s worst-dressed list. Coming this close to being added on that list is Julie Bowen, whose Monique Lhullier gown looked jarring on her, especially since her hair was all wrong. Kelli Garner was a tad more on the mustard side of the shade card, but her dress was drapes gone all wrong, mismatched makeup and silver shoes that should not have been put on her feet. Getting it somewhat right was the gorgeous Hannah Simone whose one-shouldered romantic, custom Emilio Pucci dress was a step in the correct direction. We just wished someone had pulled the bodice up a little because it makes her girls look droopy and lumpy because of the ruching on the bodice. Loving her Lorraine Schwartz gold leaf earrings, though. Kaley Cuoco came close too, with her sunshine Angel Sanchez dress. The fit let her down again, but the messy braid and rose pink lipstick are ace! The only person who got yellow completely right was the unknown-on-these-shores, Renee Bargh, who is an Australian television presenter. She worked it in a simple strapless gown and gold circle necklace. Take note, ladies.
First of all, no one on the red carpet of the Emmy Awards was particularly awful, well with the exception of Phoebe Price, who really goes for awful every time. But there was a handful of ladies — ladies whom we love and admire — who made us scratch our heads and want to send angry letters to their stylists. Mostly, there was a disturbing trend in being terrible to boobs. The gowns on Emily VanCamp, Claire Danes, Morena Baccarin and Zosia Mamet were rather unkind in the bust area, and after spending a little too much time admiring Kat Dennings‘ girls tonight, that just made us sad. Anna Chlumsky and Hayden Panettiere disappointed us by wearing gowns that would look amazing on someone 20 years their senior. Leslie Mann, meanwhile, made a terrible choice of color, and we wanted to rip the sleeves off of Julianne Moore’s gown and the ruffles off Elisabeth Moss‘.
Again, none of these were offensively bad. And maybe you disagree? Let us know in the comments and on Twitter!
Is it a good thing or a bad thing when a remake looks almost identical to the original? On one hand, it could make for an interesting twist on an old classic. On the other hand, completely reinventing a great film can end in disaster. (Total Recall remake, we’re not even looking at you here because you do not deserve it.) Fortunately, it seems like the Carrie remake starring Chloe Moretz is leaning towards the former. “FirstLook!! #Carrie #WhatHappenedToCarrie #JulianneMoore,” Moretz tweeted excitedly earlier today, and from our horror-flick-trained peepers, these images have a feel very similar to the first Carrie, in the best way possible.
In fact, as far as we can tell the only difference between these photos and the original movie is the fact that Julianne Moore still looks as much like a hottie bombalottie in Crazy Religious Nut Mom mode as she does every other second of her life. Maybe even more so? So what do you think? Check out the original trailer for Brian De Palma’s Carrie after the jump. Does Chloe’s version look good so far, or just look like something of a repeat? Man, we hope Carrie’s mom still calls them “dirty pillows.” It would be a travesty if she didn’t!
Today Abraham Lincoln gets reborn on the silver screen as you’ve never seen him before in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter! We’re pretty pumped to watch Honest Abe kick Dracula’s ass, but those blood sucking fiends aren’t the scariest part of the movie. It’s downright eerie how much star Benjamin Walker resembles the 12th POTUS! Those steely eyes, the bushy brows, the Amish beard…it’s all there!
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve assembled the 20 most scarily accurate celebrity portrayals of historical figures. Some rely on insane prosthetic and makeup, like Anthony Hopkins taking on the great Alfred Hitchcock. Others like Jared Leto and Charlize Theron just do totally nutty things to their body. And some, like Denzel Washington as Malcolm X, are just born with it. But no matter how they got there, the end result is always unforgettable. Take a look in the gallery below!
What a pretty, diverse red carpet this was yesterday. The 2012 Critics’ Choice Television Awards happened at the Beverly Hills Hotel, in L.A. and a lot of different styles and silhouettes were represented through all the fashion present. There was the dramatic, flowing gown courtesy Emmy Rossum‘s metallic Donna Karan number and Neil Lane jewelry. We had the sexy, plunging gown with Busy Phillips‘ Michael Kors black dress. Loved the use of turquoise accents through her Irene Neuwirth necklace and ring, as well. We had romantic, vintage looks with Zooey Deschanel‘s blood orange, full-skirted Oscar de la Renta dress and Alison Brie‘s ’40′s inspired frock, also by de la Renta.
Other best-dressed picks included Sarah Hyland‘s flirty, youthful frock by Collette Dinnigan, and her Modern Family co-star Ariel Winter, who looked just lovely in a white, tiered dress, also by the same designer. Coincidence, much? Lucy Liu‘s girly pale pink gown by Atelier Versace made quite an impression too. But, the sexiest look of the night, by far, goes to Julianne Moore who worked it in a black-and-white bodycon dress by Jason Wu. Her nude Walter Steiger strappy heels worked beautifully with her outfit as well. Special mention also goes to the very toned Regina King, who also wore blood orange like Zooey, but in a shorter, lacy Romona Keveza version. If your interest is piqued, then get thee to the gallery!
