Harry Potter starlet Bonnie Wright showed up at Jo Malone’s Thoroughly Proper Party in London on Wednesday lacking her long flowing locks. After years of being linked to her character Ginny Weasley with trademark titan tresses, maybe she followed in the footsteps of Emma Watson, who famously cropped her hair as soon as the series ended to get some distance from the franchise. Or she’s just hopping on the short hair band wagon!
It seems like ever A-lister has gotten the urge to hack of the hair this year. Some like Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron and Evangeline Lilly went super short for film roles, whereas former American Idol singer Kellie Pickler got a buzz to support her friend being treated for cancer. And then there are music mama’s like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys who went short just for the hell of it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 20 lovely ladies who took the hair plunge in 2012!
The 10th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party with Emporio Armani in Beverly Hills was a pretty successful bash last night, judging from the guest-list. Lots of young stars turned up to preen on the red carpet as you can see in our mega gallery below. Nikki Reed and cover girl Victoria Justice stood out from the dresses brigade wearing pants suits. Nikki wore a monochrome Emporio Armani jacket while Victoria chose a red blazer in the same brand with her blank tank and skinny trousers. Sarah Hyland and her Modern Family co-star, Ariel Winter, were lovely in a strapless taupe and black Erin by Erin Fetherstone mini-dress and minimal white Collette Dinnigan frock, respectively. Bella Thorne had her lovely titian hair tumbling down over a black dress and edgy metallic burgundy and silver ankle booties. Lucy Hale looked fresh and so pretty in a printed white and pale Christian Dior Resort 2012 collection dress while Hailee Steinfeld was working it in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton. They were just the tip of the iceberg as the ladies kept coming: Leslie Mann (in Rodarte), Kiernan Shipka (who is her stylist and where can we find them), Jessica Lowndes, Cody Horn, Claire Holt and a host of others. It’s gallery time! Who is your best-dressed pick? We think Kiernan leads the pack for us in that Opening Ceremony 2012 dress by far.
What’s young Hollywood without young, hot Hollywood right? Keeping that in mind, the Young Hollywood Awards took place last night at the Hollywood Athletic Club and paid homage to all the young stars who have created a massive buzz already in the span of their relatively shorter careers. Ashley Greene led the troupe, looking absolutely gorgeous in a black Donna Karan corset and cropped black pencil pants. Donna Karan is the actress’ go-to red carpet dresser, considering Ashley is the face of DKNY. Also looking ah-maizing was Ginnifer Goodwin who wore a sexy, yet lady-like, lacy white Monique Lhuillier dress which she accessorized with Christian Louboutin studded pumps, Jennifer Meyer earrings, and a studded Edie Parker clutch. Love the matte raspberry lips as well. Big win for Ginny G.
We’re also so happy that we spotted Hailee Steinfeld after ages. Where ya been, gurl? (Other than shooting Ender’s Game, of course.) Also, was she always this tall or does the outfit elongate her? She wore silver a Prabal Gurung top and pants with an Edie Parker clutch, like Ginnifer, but with a House of Lavande bracelet, and Brian Atwood shoes. Can’t say anyone else could pull of that amount of shiny silver, but Hailee sure can. Could Cody Horn smile a little more, please? We actually like her Marios Schwab burgundy dress and strappy Rupert Sanderson heels, but the sour face has got to go! Making up for her in the sunshine department was Sophia Bush who wore a chevron-printed Herve Leger, which thankfully, was not as skin tight as most starlets like to wear the label. Got to love her classic Christian Louboutin “Pigalle” pumps and her “lips” clutch by Lulu Guinness too. There’s more, but you’re going to have to get to our gallery to take a look.
So we were pretty happy when the teaser trailer of Magic Mike dropped day before yesterday. But as promised, the full length version premiered last night and blew the shorter clip out of the water. It opens with a longer look at the Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum cop-stripper scene we saw on the teaser complete with the line, “Do you have anything sharp on you that I could stick myself with do you? [No.] Good, because I do.” We see more of shirtless Matthew McConaughey in some truly cringeworthy cheesy scenes where he tells a crowd of screaming women, in his trademark drawl, “… The law says you cannot touch. But I think I see a lot of law breakers up in this house.”
But more importantly, we see more scenes between Channing’s character (Mike) and Pettyfer’s onscreen sister, Cody Horn, who plays Magic Mike’s love interest. And through these interactions we find out what Mike’s real love is — custom furniture. That’s his master plan. We kid you not. But Channing Tatum is seriously likeable, and has moves that make our muscles hurt by just watching them, so we’re sold regardless. Watch the trailer. The Steven Soderbergh film airs June 29 but we’ve put it on our “must-watch” list.
