The Ultimate Fashion Victim Gallery: Stars Before They Had Stylists…Or Style


Before the stars were stars, they were normal people trying to make a living. Every penny they made was spent on rent and food, not stylists and clothing. That’s why it’s so awesome to see celebrity before-and-after shots: getting a glimpse of what J.Lo looked like with crazy eyebrows or when Alec Baldwin was just a sliver of his current self. We wanted to honor some of our finest actors and performers by going back in time—back to when no one could bother to get their clothes tailored, they were too cheap to use anything but boxed hair color, and the word “stylist” didn’t even exist in Hollywood. Some of these people are a victim of the era from whence they came, but others have no excuse. The important thing to remember: these people had a choice about how to dress, and these are the outfits they chose. The awkward, tragic outfits they chose.

Style Wars: Who’s Rocking The Cutest Maternity Wear?

Maybe it’s the slow ticking time bomb we call our biological clock that has us so focused on mothers-to-be lately – we’re obsessed with Christina Applegate‘s maternity style and we’re dying for the moment Mariah Carey admits she’s pregnant. So we can’t help but love checking out the style of other celebs who are expecting.

This weekend, Lily Allen and Alicia Keys were both out and about, looking fresh and fab – we just can’t decide whose look we like best. Place your vote for who made the most of this Labor Day weekend (while preparing for their own labor day) in our style poll.

Idol Gives Back, And One Goes Home


Idol gave back last night and while the show definitely had it’s fair share of awkward moments (George Lopez and his whole tired “comedy” bit, Alicia Keys’ off-key-ness), in the spirit of the show, we’ll charitably overlook those and just say that Idol Gives Back certainly seems like a worthy cause. More than that though, the show also meant the elimination of someone we’ve grown so fond of making fun of, the gloriously be-banged Tim Urban, and in an extra charitable move, they didn’t not make him sing an exit song. Vote for the worst, your reign is over.
