It’s not every day you get to make a list that includes Martha Stewart, Bam Margera and Rose McGowan. That’s why we’re happier than usual that we decided to put together this little post calling these folks to task for daring to leave their houses — and even prancing across red carpets — in such ridiculous getups. Of course, some of these celebrities (Hugh Jackman, Adam Sandler) are simply thumbing their noses at the fact that we care what they wear to walk the dog or get the paper. Others on this list — Lea Michele, Meagan Good, Carrie Underwood — were suffering from a case of trying too hard. Which famous person failed the hardest this week? We placed them in what we think is ascending order of awfulness in the gallery above, but now it’s your turn to vote:
In the almost three decades of the MTV Video Music Awards, we have seen a LOT. Magical performances, squirm-inducing smooches, totally awkward interruptions, triumphant victories. Above all, it has been a venue for the most wackadoodle fashions a famous person has ever put on. And we’re not just talking about Lady Gaga (though we are definitely talking about Gaga). Above, we present to you our list of 30 totally cray outfits, from Andrew Dice Clay’s sleazy retro look to Justin Timberlake‘s “Pop”-inspired rainbow to Rebel Wilson’s “revealing” bikini. Some of these were part of thought-provoking artistic performances, while others were just taking advantage of the no-holds-barred atmosphere of the red carpet. Or maybe the stylists were taking advantage of something else that day.
Nothing like a spot of polo over the weekend. It all looks so elegant with the pretty dresses, tea and champagne. And hot polo players. The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is an annual affair that most of Hollywood’s ladies turn up for because it’s such great fashion exposure for them. By the looks of it, this year was the third time in a row they threw a quite successful event, held at the Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades, California. Ashley Greene led the festivities in a gorgeous white Antonio Berardi bandage dress with nude pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti. Kaley Cuoco looked light and summery in a printed Brian Rennie for Basler dress — love the pocket detailing. Rose McGowan was there too, wearing a purple Philip Lim jumpsuit, Brian Atwood shoes and a Bruno Magli clutch. Mandy Moore wore almost the same shade, but in a printed dress version by Lela Rose with Christian Loubotin heels. Our best-dressed goes to Alessandra Ambrosio who wore an amazing color-blocked, maxi BCBGMAXAZRIA dress. We’re also totally feeling Selma Blair‘s Skaist Taylor blue jumpsuit and Marc Jacobs sandals.
One more panel left after the jump, so have a look and tell us whose looks you dug the most! There’s Rachel Zoe, Rebecca Romjin and Lauren Conrad‘s outfits too! Read more…
We always have such high hopes for the annual amfAR “Cinema Against AIDS” gala that happens at Cannes. It’s normally a fashion extravaganza and there’s always a celebrity or two who ends up surprising us. This year, some of the picks on this list did surprise us. Because our regular sartorial favorites — like Nina Dobrev (who fell short in an electric blue, sequined Elie Saab column) — didn’t make it, and Kim Kardashian did. Still, we have to give props where they’re due and Kim worked it in this mustard Elie Saab and old Hollywood red lips, The color is perfect against her skin tone, the fit is great and even though the girls and the gams are out to play, it’s still all very tastefully done.
The models also really stood out with Doutzen Kroes wearing a futuristic and very flattering white Versace gown with silver detailing. Irina Shayk was sheer elegance in a sweeping, taupe Roberto Cavalli gown with gorgeous emerald jewelry. Also spotted look their very best were Kylie Minogue in tangerine Emilio Pucci and Rose McGowan who paid homage to her name in a rose-pink Atelier Versace gown with Chopard jewels. Look at the rest of the fabulously dressed stars in our gallery below. We also have one bonus picture for you. She’s not a celebrity, but a celebrity’s fiance but really deserved to be on the best-dressed list as well. Click after the jump to see who she is.
If you wanna turn heads (and headlines) on the red carpet, all you gotta do is wear is see-through outfit with no underwear underneath! This approach has been getting C and D-listers some badly needed press at least since Rose McGowan strolled into the ’98 VMAs wearing a net and a piece of string. But occasionally even Oscar winning superstars feel the temptation to walk on the wild side and step out in a planned “wardrobe malfunction.” Everyone loves attention!
We guess the revealing LBD Gwyneth Paltrow wore to The Conversation launch last night in NYC isn’t too scandalous in compared to some of the other outfits that we’ve seen out and about in recent weeks. But the commando-style flesh flash does seem to be something of a trend lately. From low names like Melody Thornton and Adrienne Bailon to huge celebs like Rihanna and Lady Gaga, much of Hollywood has been going bare lately. Check out the (VERY NSFW) gallery below and see what we mean!

It’s Day Two of New York Fashion Week, and the celebrity sightings are starting to pile up — no small feat, given that it’s also the beginning of Grammy Awards weekend in Los Angeles, and we’re sure those parties are tempting many a famous face away from this coast. But up at Lincoln Center, the stars who know that what they (and their stylists) choose for them to wear on the red carpet and on the way to the grocery store has an impact on their overall image, and, dare we say? their career as well. So, who have we seen in the front rows so far? Shailene Woodley (kind of surprising, since she told us she only wears second-hand clothing), Alexa Chung and Kristen Chenoweth took in the pretty purples and blues of the Honor show. Abigail Breslin, Megan Hilty and Angela Simmons watched the Cynthia Rowley show together. Kellan Lutz was with Matt Czuchry, Chris Lowell and the NY Knicks’ Landry Fields for Joseph Abboud. Recently resurfaced former child star Anna Chlumsky was backstage at Houghton. Taylor Momsen was snapped roaming in the lobby today. And then there are the afterparties. Vanessa Hudgens, Rose McGowan, Giants star Victor Cruz and Eve were among the revelers at the Leila Shams party last night. Come back all week long for more pics of the stars getting their style on! And check out the video below for stars weighing in on some looks that didn’t look so hot.
Marilyn Manson seems more likely to summon the hell hound Cerberus from the gates of Hades than sing “Cry Me a River” six times at a Las Vegas karaoke bar, but according to the New York Post, that is where the Antichrist Superstar found himself this past Halloween weekend. Accompanied by his model girlfriend, Lindsay Usich, Manson allegedly “playfuly waved” a knife at his fellow partygoers before yelling, “I am sorry I went nuts, but I’m a rock star!” Finding out how Manson has been keeping himself busy made us wonder how our other favorite goth celebrities are doing. Join us, won’t you, as we journey back to a simpler, more sinister time in a segment we’d like to call “Where Goth They Now?”

In Rose McGowan’s People interview hitting newsstands tomorrow, McGowan discusses growing up in Italy as part of a Children Of God sect, a communal group that espoused polygamy and, some allege, child abuse. “I did not want to be like those women. There were basically there to serve the men sexually,” the Conan The Barbarian actress recalls about the group. “There were no newspapers, no television. You were kept in the dark so you would obey.” Makes the fact Rose was once engaged to Marilyn Manson look downright wholesome by comparison. We’re sure the man at least had a TV!
Eventually Rose’s family fled the group for the U.S. when she was 9, after her father grew worried his daughter would be sexually abused. “My dad was strong enough to realize that this hippie love had gone south,” Rose explains. “I remember running through a cornfield and thunder and lightning. I remember running as fast as I could.” And here we were, loving Charmed, completely in the dark about the whole thing.
Stars brought their A-game to VH1 Do Something Awards! Insert all applause, wolf whistles and back patting here, guys! The show went down yesterday at the Hollywood Palladium in California and we’re pleased to report that celebrities really spiffed themselves up for the event. Including the guys because this best-dressed list involves Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Adam Lambert. David looked so sharp in his suit and also, adorably, brought his son Brooklyn with him.
The ladies more than kept up. Jojo and Amy Poehler brought bright punches of color with them wearing fuchsia and sunshine yellow respectively. We also love the vintage vibe Brittany Snow and Rose McGowan were channeling. Rose had on a strapless, sexy, Dolce & Gabbana black and white star-print dress with red heels and Brittany wore a circle-cut silver animal print dress by Camilla and Marc with mustard ankle-strap pumps.
Kim Kardashian highlighted her kurves in her version of “minimal.” It was sleek, white, body hugging gown — she’s been wearing a lot of white lately, probably as a lead-up to the wedding. But we have to admit she looks pretty fab. Rounding off our top 10 are Demi Lovato and Kristen Bell. Demi looked happy, healthy and leggy in an embellished, flirty white frock. Kristen looked sleek in a one-shouldered Etro dress. Ladies and gentlemen, we applaud you. Click through our gallery below and tell us who you think was best dressed?
Don’t forget to tune-in to the 2011 Do Something! Awards, airing on VH1 this Thursday, August 18, at 9 p.m. ET!

As temperatures rise and blockbusters flood the movie theaters, prepare to swim in celebs who became household names via the boob tube. While some have since established themselves as movie stars, we grew to love them on a weekly basis from our couches.
A brunette version of Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively will play leading lady opposite Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern. Mad Men‘s January Jones will trade her 60s housewife getup for a shimmery push-up bra for her role as Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class. Ever the uptight but lovable nerd, The Office‘s Ed Helms will reprise his role in The Wolfpack in The Hangover: Part II. This summer’s token fluffy comedy Monte Carlo features plenty of TV’s hottest stars such as Glee‘s Cory Monteith, GG‘s Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy, and Wizards of Waverly Place‘s Selena Gomez.
Before the heat and humidity makes us all flee to the movie theaters for relief, check out what TV stars to keep an eye out for in this summer’s biggest flicks.
