10 Things You Need To Know About The New Godzilla

GODZILLA

Sixty years after Godzilla was first introduced to the world, the monster is back on the big screen. And this time, the original kaiju is bigger than ever. In the 2014 edition, size matters but so does heart. Thanks to an award-winning cast—Bryan Crantson, Ken Watanabe, and Elizabeth Olsen—the monster film is grounded in a world of reality and emotion that transforms the monster into something more than a creature of destruction. Ahead of the premiere, VH1 breaks down 10 essentials you need to know before going to see it.

Carey Mulligan, Rashida Jones, Elisabeth Olsen Come to Support Prabal Gurung’s Launch

Carey Mulligan, Elizabeth Olsen, Rashida Jones: Prabal Gurung

All the cool boys and girls wanted to be at the Prabal Gurung for Target launch at Pier 57 in New York city on Wednesday night. Prabal’s designs have flooded this site, in best-dressed and worst-dressed lists alike, so love his work or hate it, you can’t ignore it. How we wish we could’ve been at this one, because it sounds like so much fun. The entire space was transformed into a modern day carnival complete with merry-go-rounds, fortune tellers, food carts and other games. Of course a shopping area was allocated too! And the very dapper Ne-Yo, as you can see above, gave a surprise performance. Three of our favorite, way cool faces also showed up. Carey Mulligan, after ages, was seen. Sadly, we could not get on board woth her trench and peach blouson as it just looked out of place with the intense eye makeup and slicked back hair she had styled. Carey can do so much better. Rashida Jones chose a periwinkle ruffled blouse with a black placket and collar, styled with black slaccks and pumps by Alexander Wang — her only concession to something not Prabal Gurung. And providing our favorite look for the evening was Elizabeth Olsen, who looked effortlessly chic in a coral and aqua dress with black waistband complemented by black ankle booties and a black coat. The coat must’ve been flung off as she danced to Ne-Yo. The life. Sigh.

Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Olsen Join The Ranks Of Fugliest Movie Wardrobes

Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Olsen In Ugly Wardrobe

Good lord in Fugven! The wardrobe on Reese Witherspoon in Devil’s Own and Elizabeth Olsen in Very Good Girls has our eyebrows kissing the top of our heads. See, this is what can happen when they try to make the beautiful people look less beautiful: they transform a beautiful person…into a blazing hot mess. That paisley? How? What? Wha? No!

Now, fugly wardrobe is not to be confused with an actor or actress who purposely become less hot in order to transform into an actual preexisting human being (Charlize Theron in Monster, anyone?), like those Oscar nominees featured in our list of Scarily Accurate Historical Figure Portrayals. It is simply a costume that was carefully hand-selected by a film’s wardrobe department to depict a certain time period or personal style…and also happens to be very, very, very fugly. Reese and Elizabeth, you know what we’re talking about. Why does Dakota Fanning look relatively normal and Elizabeth have that monstrous shirt on? Okay, sorry. Let us do our breathing exercises for a second. You can’t see it, but we’re shaking our heads on your behalf, ladies, and on behalf of everyone else on our Fugliest Movie Wardrobe list:

Your Mega Peek Into The 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

We all know that the Vanity Fair Oscar Party is almost as big as the Oscar ceremony itself. And just as brights were a major Oscars 2012 trend, it was the same as the party. Rosie Huntington-Whitely wore a juicy, tangerine Antonio Berardi dress while Cameron Diaz went more orange with a Victoria Beckham number. Kate Upton, a pregnant Molly Sims, Salma Hayek, Abbie Cornish and Diane Kruger all wore shades of crimson.

It’s just a straight-up roll call of celebrities here: Elizabeth Olsen in black Christian Dior, Sofia Vergara in a white Robert Cavalli column, Brooklyn Decker in nude, beaded Valentino and Selena Gomez in Dolce & Gabbana. See what we mean? We’re not too sure about  Zoe Saldana in her black, sheer Marios Schwab or January Jones in her Wes Gordon green-and-burgundy confused dress. Or Elizabeth Banks and her green-and-blue feathered Chadwick Bell dress.  Jennifer Lopez wore the same designer as her Oscars dress, but this plunging, sparkling, plum version was even sexier.

Jennifer Lawrence Returns To Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue

If we hadn’t already seen evidence of Kristen Stewart’s upcoming Vanity Fair spread, we know there’d be an uprising about her absence from the cover of VF’s annual Hollywood Issue. After all, there are two other alumnae from the 2010 issue returning for this year’s cover: Mia Wasikowska and Jennifer Lawrence. They share the mag’s front image with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’s Rooney Mara and Jessica Chastain, she of The Help and every other critically acclaimed movie of 2011.

Behind the fold are some other rather recognizable faces from the past year, albeit made up in ultra-glam ’30s-era styling for the Mario Testino photo that makes them nearly unrecognizable: Elizabeth Olsen, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton and Lily Collins. Three of the actresses are buzzy but not yet getting mainstream recognition: Adepero Oduye, star of the indie fave Pariah; Like Crazy’s Felicity Jones and Brit Marling, who co-wrote and starred in last year’s Another Earth and co-stars opposite Richard Gere in the upcoming hedge-fund drama (!) Arbitrage.

Sundance 2012: Stars Show Off Their Winter Best

“I am such a weird snow bunny,” MADtv alum Arden Myrin told VH1 News at Sundance over the weekend. “I have 40,000 outfit changes. I’ve got like 14 hats.”

Arden is bunny-hopping from her small-screen role in Suburgatory to two films appearing at Sundance, Wrong (about a man’s search for his lost dog) and Bachelorette (starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Rebel Wilson and James Marsden). And she’s one of many actors, musicians and filmmakers relishing the chance to don their best knits, boots, scarves, furs and puffy coats in Park City this week. We like seeing them all bundled up like the rest of us who don’t reside in sunny California. Everyone from Coco to Robert Redford to Chris Rock to Skylar Grey ditched their typical red-carpet style for cozier gear. Check out the gallery below for a whole bunch of stars wearing their winter best. And come back soon for more photos from the film festival.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet 12 Best-Dressed

Oh, yeah, people. After yesterday’s PCA dress rehearsal, awards season 2012 got really fired up at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards tonight. Our appetites for sequins and lace and tuxes are whetted. We are ready to spend the next month debating whether blue is the new black, whether the mullet dress should go the way of the mullet, and whether men can make it onto the best-dressed list without looking absolutely silly (we’re talking to you, Christopher Plummer).

So, now that we’ve gushed over little sisters Elle Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen, and we’ve been pondering the fact that all those gothic ladies were wearing romantic black at 3 in the afternoon, it’s time to commit to a best-dressed list. From the adorable Thomas Horn and Berenice Bejo to the deliciously elegant Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams and Sir Ben Kingsley, to Brad Pitt and h here are our 12 favorites from the evening. Disagree? Well, tell us in the comments!

Little Sisters Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning Shine In Gowns Fresh Off The Runway

Their talent has already been proven with their critically acclaimed silver screen performances, but at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards little sisters are doing it for themselves in the fashion stakes too. Wearing gowns fresh off the Spring/Summer 2012 runways, both Elle Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen showed their big sisters that they too have one foot in the closet. Both girls celebrated youth and color, in summery shades of lime and lemon, and both bought life to their runway dresses, their smiles adding joy and life to the couture styles.

Elle Fanning, star of Super 8 and little sister to style maven Dakota, wore a Rodarte floor length gown and radiated with fresh make up and a splash of yellow eye shadow. Far from overwhelming her with it’s length and volume, the dress merely accentuated the teen starlet’s ebullience as she walked down the red carpet. Elizabeth Olsen, star of Martha Marcy May Marlene, sister of style icons Mary-Kate and Ashley opted for a canary yellow beaded mini dress from Pucci’s SS12 collection, and like Fanning, bloomed like a flower as she strolled down the red carpet.

Celebrities Pay Tribute To Pedro Almodovar At MOMA

The Museum of Modern Art’s Fourth Annual Film benefit, A Tribute to Pedro Almodovar, had celebrities lined up to pay homage to the Spanish director. A few of the stars had been to the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards the previous night, making this second round of dress-up all the more impressive. Two nights out and we’re half dead under our charcoal face masks, but not these ladies. Blake Lively, Chloe Moretz, Anna Wintour, Drew Barrymore, Emma Stone and Sarah Jessica Parker all wore Chanel, while Miranda Kerr was rocking a bizarre, patterned Peter Pilotto dress. Drew also brought her latest boyfriend, Will Kopelman. The evening included video messages to Almodovar from friends Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas, as well as montage of highlights from his films.

We know you want to see what everyone wore, so go ahead and check out our gallery.
