We may not have the big bucks to get the fancy blowouts celebrities get done by the best hairstylists, but there’s at least one thing we can get that puts us in the same league. Hair accessories, which have been huge this year! Floral head-pieces, sparkling stars, crystal hair-bows, and minimal metallic headbands have been all the rage and spotted on the likes of Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence. And plenty more, but we’ve culled out our top 15 looks for you out of all of 2012.
A couple of stand-outs for us. Sarah Jessica Parker‘s custom Mickey Mouse ears made by L’Wren Scott, worn when she hosted the Barneys New York And Disney Electric Holiday Window Unveiling in November, were to die for. Emma Stone‘s delicate gold Jennifer Behr laurel leaf bandeaux worn at the The Amazing Spider-Man premiere at Oktyabr cinema hall in Moscow in June had us floored. Chloe Moretz also wore a darling crystal hair-bow at the National Board of Review Awards gala in January that wasn’t just age-appropriate. We insist it’s appropriate for every age. Which means a 30-year-old woman (i.e. this writer) gets to wear one and not feel like we’re edging in on a 14-year-old’s style territory! Feel free to pore through our gallery for the rest of the looks!

The bad news first: 1) We have no time machine to fix the errors of the past; and 2) this Freaks and Geeks reunion of which we speak was just for the January issue of Vanity Fair, not for a TV special or a spinoff about Nick and Lindsay’s daughter. Exec producer Judd Apatow (whose birthday, incidentally, is today) guest-edited this first-ever Comedy Issue of the magazine, and used that as an opportunity to gather the whole gang from (the non-Glee) McKinley High for a photo and a really long oral history of the show that aired from 1999-2000.
“This is the first time the cast has been together in a room — all of them — since the year 2000,” Apatow says in a behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot. “We’re excited because I don’t think this will ever happen again.”
Sometimes certain events tend to surprise us because they’re low-flying on the radar, but end up being so highly attended that we have to sit up and take notice. That’s what happened with the Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday at the Book Bindery in Culver City, California. It’s a great cause providing families in need with baby-care products and essentials. A lot of very stylish moms showed up in support. We found Jessica Alba breathtaking in a shell, frothy Valentino Resort 2013 confection with a Roger Vivier clutch and Harry Winston jewels. Nicole Richie picked a similar color scheme opting for a gorgeous 1920′s inspired Lorena Sarbu Fall 2012 nude gown with an Art Decod pattern, with side-swept retro hair. Rachel Zoe also rocked it in a white goddess gown with black piping. Think it was her own design?
Another favourite was Julie Bowen‘s purple sequined Naeem Khan caftan accesorized with a Jimmy Choo tube clutch. Others that looked good, but not great, like the ladies mentioned so far, were Ali Larter (who should have nixed the leopard belt), Molly Sims (too drab in black, as was Rebecca Gayheart) and Busy Philipps whose dress was lovely but her brown clutch and turquoise jewelry ruined it for us. Mindy Kaling did work her Max Mara pale pink crepe gown even though the fitting was a little off! Read more…
If you’ve looked at the last two posts — the trend-spotted and the worst-dressed list — about the Elle Women in Hollywood event, you’d know a best-list was en route. Only, it’s not. Because we can’t decide whether the ensembles these ladies wore were just plain cray or really chic, and we’re going to tell you why so that the final verdict is yours. Cate Blanchett, as usual pushes the envelope in this printed Proenza Schouler dress with Roger Vivier shoes and clutch and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry. It’s not hard to see why we’re split between cray and chic. Does the whole outre outfit come together, or does the print clash, especially with the black Vivier shoes. We heart Emma Stone forever, and we’ve seen and loved those houndstooth Ferragamo heels before at the The Amazing Spider-Man press conference in Tokyo four months ago. But those intense bangs with the hot pink Valentino with the Peter Pan collar and cuffs — twee or werkin’ it? The steely Calvin Klein Sarah Jessica Parker wore begs the same questions. Is the architectural bodice — and you can say this with us now — cray-cray or chic?
The next lot has Kristen Wiig, Anna Kendrick and Jayma Mays. Kristen’s hair looks so shiny and healthy and we adore the green Calvin Klein dress on her, which is clearly, in the chic category. But do those clunky Nicholas Kirkwood platforms take the whole thing to cray-town? Anna’s black with gold embroidery strapless Badgley Mischka dress is ace, especially with that metallic Mulberry clutch and Brian Atwood pumps. But does the sheer paneling at the waist it take it ’80′s cray territory? Lastly, Jayma’s electric blue Alexandra Vidal dress is spot-on trend thanks to the peplum and the color goes wonderfully with her hair and coloring. That purple Rebecca Minkoff clutch is crazy cool too! But … do her multi-colored, bondage-like Brian Atwood sandals look a little cray to you? So much chic and so much crazy, our heads are spinning. Busy Philipps, Rashida Jones and Erika Christensen after the jump! Read more…
If you are a true Dawson’s Creek fan, you may have been walking around lately with a huge grin on your face because … drumroll … Dawson’s Creek is having a reunion! Sort of! TVGuide.com shared the exciting, pee-in-your-pants-worthy news that Busy Philipps will guest-star on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23‘s second-season premiere. Busy, who played Joey’s roommate and Pacey’s love interest Audrey Liddell on Dawson’s, will play herself alongside her former castmate, James Van Der Beek, who also plays himself on the show. In the season premiere, James will attempt to reunite his Dawson’s co-stars, who, according to Apartment 23‘s creator Nahnatchka Khan, could (hopefully) include Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson and our homegirl, Katie Holmes.
The potential get together of such definitive ’90s TV characters seems quite overdue for those of us who’ve cried, screamed, laughed and awwwed throughout Dawson’s Creek‘s six seasons. But let’s not complain, guys: We gotta take what we can get. This series’ cast certainly impacted us from crushes to heartbreak to the constant love triangle of Joey Potter, Dawson Leery and Pacey Witter, and we cannot wait to see how the actors might interact on Apartment 23. They may be playing themselves rather than their high school alter-egos in this new TV series but we are thrilled to see just how strong those Dawson’s bonds truly are, and if any lingering chemistry between these stars remains.
In our anticipation of this reunion special, we are taking a look at the actors of Dawson’s Creek, where they were then and where they are now.

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!

Coachella went down for its second weekend in Indio, California, and as expected, the stars flocked to it again. Last weekend had its fair share of controversies attached to it. Not to the festival per se, but to the many celebrities who attended. What was Lindsay Lohan doing there against her judge’s advice? Who was the mystery dude Emma Watson was with? And what exactly was Rihanna smoking? So many questions. No answers just yet. But in contrast, this last weekend of Coachella seemed easy-peasy.
Some celebrities, like Dita von Teese and Busy Philipps, showed up on both Saturday and Sunday. Dita was also spotted hanging out with pal Kelly Osbourne, and her purple hair. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was seen rocking out to Florence Welch. Twilighters Elizabeth Reaser and Nikki Reed (with hubby Paul McDonald) were there, as well as ex-Twilighter Rachelle Lefevre. Joe Jonas hatted up, while Joe Manganiello (and yay for this) took his shirt off. But the cutest photographs by far, were of Alicia Silverstone with her son Bear Blu. Top marks for the baby-size noise-cancelling headphones! Look out for all of the action in our gallery.

The Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue party went down last night in L.A. at the Greystone Manor, and guests took the “hot” part of the invitation quite seriously. Kim Kardashian led the way working it in a sparkling silver strapless dress with neon pink pumps. Carmen Electra looked quite spectacular wearing a beige dress with gold vertical detailing, gathered at the waist. Olivia Munn picked a tight LBD with black booties, with an multi-strand orange necklace for color relief. Yep. Legs galore, right? Other stems that looked equally great were Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett‘s, showcased in a tight blue plunging mini. Jennifer Morrison went that route too, in a flounced frock, and she also debuted a new auburn ‘do. The likes of Shannen Doherty, Monica and Busy Philipps were also spotted wearing little dresses. Aubrey O’Day wore a maxi, but brought out the cleavage. Balancing out all the yin, was some pretty hot yang — Kellan Lutz. ‘Nuff said. Check out the gallery to see for yourself.

It’s unfortunate that three ladies from Glee have made it to this SAG Awards list but we can assure you that they’re all on for very valid reasons. We’ll tackle Lea Michele first. It’s odd that she’s on here because she’s been doing so well with red carpet fashion lately, but our problem with her silver-grey Versace get-up she chose tonight is that it washed her out. A brighter lip, perhaps? A different colored shoe? But our biggest issue is with that hip-high slit, which looked tacky. Diva, please!
Then there’s Heather Morris, whose Masai Payan dress just doesn’t work because one half looks like it’s made from pleather and the other half is sheer panels that look confused. Her hairstyle ages her unnecessarily, too. Finishing up the trio is Jenna Ushkowitz in Rebecca Minkoff. The mixture of florals and the sheer paneling, again, makes it a fail.
Rose Byrne wore one of her favorite designers (Elie Saab) but picked a white jumpsuit completely encrusted with sequins, slashed down the front. We have a problem with jumpsuits on red carpets as it is, and this one is just not good. We also don’t know what Busy Philipps was thinking? That much boho is a no-no. We wouldn’t wear this to the beach, let alone an awards show. Shailene Woodley wore a floral L’Wren Scott, but didn’t pay much attention to her hair or makeup. As a result, the dress looked a bit like an arts and crafts project on her. Rounding up the list is Kaley Cuoco whose feathered Ramona Keveza combined with the braided hair borders on milkmaid territory. Could any of these looks be salvaged, or should they just be savaged? Let us know in the comments section!

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.
