Up In The Air‘s Anna Kendrick found a less than subtle way to say “remember me?” at last night’s Tribeca Film Festival opening, walking the red carpet in a dress that appeared to be falling off her body without ever quite hitting the floor. Not quite as, well, inviting were Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen. While Ashley’s trenchcoat and droopy dress matched the pair’s usual “style,” Mary-Kate’s orange pants and crimson coat took things to…you know, we’re at a loss to come up with a coherent metaphor to describe this outfit. Goth Woody Woodpecker? Beast-Man glam? If you’ve got any ideas, go wild in the comments box.

Full House’s Danny Tanner will always be our ideal sitcom dad, but jokes about how Bob Saget diapered the Olsen Twins when they were infants is really damaging the fantasy. Praising Mary-Kate and Ashley as “incredibly loving and generous,” Bob then reminisces “The joke I have with them is that I diapered them. They were three months old and doing the show and I also had a baby and there was a time when I knew how to diaper them really quickly. Of course, I had permission.” We don’t care if he had written permission from President Ronald Reagan, this still makes us super uncomfortable. Meanwhile, we’re sure the Olsens are just thrilled that their TV dad is bragging about helping with their diaper rash.
When asked if minded that he’ll be remembered primarily for his signature dad role, Saget argued “I don’t know if that’s true. What happens if I explode on the street and they say it’s ‘American’s Funniest Death’? It could be the video show or it could be a new show.” Well…it’ll probably be that exploding thing, if that actually happens. Sure, we all loved ABC’s TGIF line-up, but being splattered with exploding-person parts would make some serious headlines. [Photo: Getty Images]
It would appear that anyone who has ever worn clothes was in attendance at the Women’s Wear Daily 100 Anniversary Gala last night. Fashionistas like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Iman, Anna Wintour, and Michael Kors were there, both Top Chef hosts, Padma Lakshmi and Katie Lee, were there (was that weird?), and then there were the total randos: Henry Kissinger, Jessica Szohr, Alex McCord. Seriously, elbow combinations you never dreamed of were rubbing last night. The one thing they had in common though was that everyone looked amazing. Check out our gallery to see what we mean.
rnrnTeacup-sized designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have big plans for their designer clothing line the Row. So big, in fact, that they’re going to start with the White House. According to the twins, their high-end label would be perfect for Michelle Obama. Gushes Ashley, “I’d love to get Michelle Obama in the Row. The simple suits and things.” rnrnAs most people with the power of sight know, the Olsens are well-known for dressing like Janis Joplin and Cousin It on a bender (Historical note: this may have actually happened). We doubt Mary-Kate and Ashley have the same definition for the word “simple” — and, while we’re at it, the word “suit” — as the rest of America. However, the past few years have seen the twins make a glacially slow move away from Oscar the Grouch chic and toward a sleeker, albeit still bizarrely oversized, wardrobe. Perhaps Mary-Kate abd Ashley have been wearing such enormous frocks this entire time as a way to make a statement to the 5’10” FLOTUS. A statement like, “We refuse to make clothes that fit anyone beside you, Michelle; we don’t care how many car doors or street cleaners we must get caught before you buy them.”rnrnBut fit isn’t the only reason the First Lady should grab her AmEx and helicopter over to the mall. Says Ashley, “It’s all made in America, so why not?” Good point, Olsen #2! Unfortunately Mrs. Obama caught so much flack for flashing her bare arms after becoming First Lady, we can only imagine what FOX News would have to say if she showed up in a formal denim jumpsuit or a white satin fem-tuxedo. Rush Limbaugh would have a heart attack for days. [Photo: Getty Images]
You know how a “tornado watch” is less serious than a “tornado warning”? Well this story about Lea Michele‘s “drama” on the set of Glee sounds more like a “diva watch” than a “diva warning.” “She’s sweet, but she has her moments,” one daring anonymous source tells Us Magazine. “She has very clear ideas about what she wants to do and how she wants to look. I think she’s just Type-A, like her character.” Oh no, a Type-A…in Hollywood! “Lea acts like she’s better than the rest of the cast,” says another (burn!), “but the thing is, she legitimately is.” We always did wonder how the Broadway vets dealt with the truly autotune-dependent on that show.
Whether or not she’s reached terror level Shannen Doherty for the crew on Glee, Michele certainly seems to be owning her stardom. The singing sensation joined Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel and Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen at the launch of make-up artist Mark Townsend’s new launch party, with her sheer low-cut dress and black bra sticking out even among those fashionistas (though points to Ashley Olsen for looking like a grandma’s linen closet come to life). See what all these Type-A’s wore in the gallery below.

With Sex And The City 2 less than a success, we’re not surprised Sarah Jessica Parker might to start to fade into the background—it’s not like anyone saw Did You Hear About The Morgans? either. Still, we never could have guessed she’s literally blend in with the scenery at the CFDA Fashion Awards last night, where her psychedelic purple Alexander McQueen dress merged with panels behind her on the carpet. Though SJP was on hand to bid farewell to the McQueen era, SATC2‘s failure (the film lost 60% of its audience the second week, dropping from #2 to #5) suggests she may be leaving along with it.
Among the other stars at Monday’s gala were Dakota Fanning, Naomi Campbell, Rachel Weisz, Brooke Shields, Ed Westwick, Michelle Trachtenberg and the Olsen twins. See what they wore in the gallery below.
June is just around the corner, which means hot temps, the occasional sunburn, and a major influx of movie releases. Many of us will beat the heat by noshing on some popcorn in a overly-air conditioned theater, but in the sea of blockbuster hopefuls, what’s worth our $12.50? What packs the heat, without causing pit stains? Considering the sex appeal of the stars, steaminess of the story, and cling of the wardrobe, we’re counting down a dozen flicks that’ll sizzle the summer months, from lukewarm to piping hot.
12. Sex and the City 2, May 27th: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis hit the Middle East in 5-inch heels, high-slitted designer dresses, and sparkly turbans. Beefcake and baby-less Aiden returns to tempt Mrs. Big.
The Olsen twins have always dressed like they were homeless, but for a while they went more glam and it was a welcome change. This week though there have been a couple of outfits that we’re labeling as fashion missteps that both Mary-Kate and sister Ashley Olsen have worn. Guys, these aren’t good looks. Ashley showed up to the Belvedere Pink Grapefruit Launch Party in a jumble of several blankets, a leather jacket and open-toed sandals. Luckily, the other celeb style represented at the soiree made up for it.
