Into The Woods is one of our early picks for next year’s Oscar race. Yes, we based this solely on Meryl Streep‘s witchy hair, Rob Marshall‘s first film, and the fact that Stephen Sondheim‘s musical is humorous, haunting, and increasingly affecting with each viewing. Read more…

Every time we turn around, it feels like we’re in the midst of another baby boom — IRL and in our celebrity-watching lives. We were just recovering from the births of Prince George and Princess North West when we started counting down the days until we meet the new offspring of Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Kevin and Danielle Jonas and more. We’re not sure if any of these babies is destined for royal titles of their own, but in the meantime, they’re making their mamas look like queen bees. How well do you know these famous bumps? Test your knowledge in this little quiz:

Katy Perry had a very good weekend, sartorially speaking. This orange Alexander McQueen Resort 2013 gown is possibly the best she’s ever looked. Hands down stunning. She wore the outfit at the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute over the weekend in L.A, where Bruce Springsteen was honored for his artistic and philanthropic achievements. But we were right in thinking we had seen the gown before. Emily Blunt wore the same gown to the attends the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards in November last year, in London. Looking equally gorgeous, we might add. While Emily had her hair up in a chic bun, Katy wore hers down in loose, lovely waves. Both ladies didn’t wear any necklaces as the bejewelled halter neckline doesn’t need any embellishment. Emily had a black McQueen clutch on her person while Katy wore bling in the form of rings and bracelets. The gown also has a sexy low back, but is it just us or does Emily’s version — seen in the third and fourth pictures — dip lower than Katy’s? Either way, we’re floored by the gown on both of them. Which leads to the all-important question — who wore it better? Vote in the poll below and let us know.

We love a dose of precious metal especially when it’s done so, so right. We’re talking the colors and not pure metal, though, which is even more interesting. Last night’s Golden Globes brought us the gifts of Kristen Bell and Emily Blunt who wore silver and gold, respectively, in a manner that invites spontaneous sighs of approval. Special mention has to be given to Kristen who is a couple of months pregnant and has taken awards show maternity dressing to a new high. Her silvery Jenny Packham Spring 2013 gown flowed over her like a dream and that crystal embroidery over the bodice and neckline is ethereal. Similar props have to be given for the makeup and hair. Emily’s embroidered gold Michael Kors gown — hurrah for the cut-outs — also floored us. The touch of ruby through her jewelry, highlighted as she wore her hair up in a bun, is such an unusual choice but it works so well.
While the looked amazo head-on, here’s the back-view. Kristen’s crystal trail adds the extra bit of glamour, while Emily’s cut-outs with the simple body-con silhouette keeps it minimal, yet incredibly sexy. Bravo, ladies!

So, we’ve got definitive best-dressed and worst-dressed lists at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards last night, but the biggest list for the night are the fashion in-betweeners. Some serious A-Listers showed up to the event and they were almost quite there on the most-fabulous round-up, had there not been some sartorial slip-ups. We hate including Emily Blunt on this list because her cream Miu Miu dress was stunning especially with the crystal neckline. We loved the retro curls and the red lips. But we just can’t reconcile with her Prada heels that feel far too clunky. They even make the length of the dress feel wrong. Nina Dobrev wore a turquoise metallic, fully embellished Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 cocktail dress with amazo Brian Atwood ‘Evie’ heels, which we love. But the frock feels like something Lt. Uhura would wear to a Star Trek mixer. Then there’s Jessica Chastain‘s Prada gown with the crystal neckline worn with Jimmy Choo ‘Tease’ sandals and Harry Winston jewels. The bodice seems ill-fitted, plus while the gown is meant to pop, she somehow tones it down to a more vanilla vibe. Amy Adams is gorgeous in her Vionnet gown but the ruffles at the waist just don’t do it for us. The same applies for Eva Longoria and her Monique Lhuillier. She wears the designer so often that it’s just too safe now. Pretty, but wholly unremarkable. While Leslie Mann‘s Honor Spring 2013 pink frock is lovely and girly … there’s just too much pink in this look. Pink lips, pink Tiffany clutch, pink Jimmy Choo ‘Fitch’ ankle-strap heels — too, too much for us. Even though the frock is a lacy dream. Octavia Spencer is rocking the navy Tadashi Shoji dress. But those bangs need to go, or be swept aside. A more adventurous shoe — hers matched the dress too perfectly — would be appreciated. And lastly, Emmy Rossum’s Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2013 gown feels far too princessy and saccharine. We think Emmy retreats into this style bracket too often, and the odd now and then that she busts out is freakin’ fabulous. So we’re not going to encourage safe Emmy anymore — but only because we love her and don’t want to be enablers!
