Why is Kim Kardashian a hypocrite? Does Emma Roberts have a PDA problem with boyfriend Evan Peters? And what would Ryan Lochte do? All this in today’s First Dibs.
Emma Roberts has been cast as Lena, the lead role in Delirium, Lauren Oliver‘s YA book franchise currently being adapted for TV by Fox. The trilogy (the third book, Requiem comes out next month) details 18-year-old Lena’s coming of age experiences in a dystopian world where love is considered a sickness, and the only cure is brain surgery and a partner assigned by the government.
Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.
If there’s one trend we’ve been spotting taking over red carpets in 2012 alone, it’s been the juicy summer brights look. We’ve been happy to see every shade of orange and yellow seep onto a variety of silhouettes over the year, from the very start of January. The Oscars, the Met Ball, the Golden Globes and the big premieres — hello, The Hunger Games — all had these shades represented by actresses who are not afraid to embrace the bright side. The Met Ball alone really took care of this huge trend with a number of actresses choosing orange like Kristen Bell and Emma Roberts. Solange Knowles and January Jones really took care of the yellow spectrum. Some celebrities have been more courageous than others, wearing brights on numerous occasions. Like, Viola Davis, Nicole Richie and Elizabeth Banks. Each of those lovely ladies is represented in our exhaustive gallery of 25 pictures below. This collection comprises our favorite looks — all worn this year, from January onwards — which are all either orange or yellow, keeping the trend in mind. You’ll also see where exactly they were worn, in case you want to do a little digging on your own. Knock yourselves out on these punchy shades and tell us whose design you liked best!

Legs ahoy! These two celebrities have an enviable set of pins and it seems almost unfair to pit them against each other. Almost. Because we’re doing this anyway! The photograph on the left is of Carrie Underwood arriving at Toronto’s Pearson airport last night, wearing a pair of teeny-tiny shorts. Loving the cazh outfit dressed up by those metallic fringed flats. But more importantly, Carrie’s legs must make her trainer want to sing “Hallelujah!” Her rival, in this post, is Emma Roberts on the right. The actress was seen running around Beverly Hills in short-shorts and a fedora yesterday. She’a paler than Carrie, but we have to admit … she’s fit! Emma seems to have a naturally lanky, lean body and great legs. You have to, to be able to pull that length off. As does Carrie. But now, you have to tell us about your preference in the poll below. Leave us a comment or two, as well!

We love the brights trend and we love the women who dare to wear the shades even more. The Met Gala had its fair share of examples and some of the stars scored top marks and made it to the best-dressed list. Like Solange Knowles in a sunshine, peplum Rachel Roy gown. Or Emma Roberts who also wore a semi-peplum Escada number, only in a color that comes between orange and yellow. Katherine McPhee was also part of our best-dressed roll call, wearing a stunning Elie Saab tangerine column.
Some celebrities also made it to out fashion-forward list, wearing ensembles that are risky and not cut-and-dry. January Jones was on the list wearing a neon yellow, futuristic looking Versace gown. Taking the time capsule way back, was Kirsten Dunst who wore a pumpkin colored Rodarte number that looked like it was from the ’40′s. Sadly, landing up on our worst-dressed list was Eva Mendes who wore a terrific punchy shade of orange, but the Prada peplum gown itself was downright frumpy on her. Rounding up this brights post are Ginnifer Goodwin and Kristen Bell, both wearing tangerine. Ginnifer wore a lovely cap-sleeved Monique Lhuillier, while Kristen chose a Tommy Hilfiger halter-necked version which she rocked. See for yourselves!
This is going to be a long list, folks, so get some popcorn ready. There was so much material to choose from, from this year’s Met Gala that we drove ourselves into a tizzy. We weren’t ever fans of, say, peplum (gowns with an overskirt), but Solange Knowles‘ sunshine-yellow Rachel Roy number made us fans. Keeping up the bright trend was Katharine McPhee whose low-cut, unforgiving tangerine Elie Saab column was stunning. Emma Roberts wore a brighter shade of orange, and also incorporated peplum in her gorgeous Escada strapless gown. Moving toward red territory was a surprise entry: Chelsea Clinton. She wowed us in a cherry, lace-overlay strapless gown, and she totally needs to reveal who the designer is.
Other fab outfits were worn by Ashley Greene who picked a dreamy, Grecian Donna Karan gown and Amy Adams, who also wore white Giambattista Valli, with a cheeky gold bow detail at the waist. It was completely old Hollywood glamour. Another one of our red carpet favorites choosing that vibe was Amber Heard, a knockout in a dusty rose Zac Posen fishtail. The Glee gals represented and chose completely different looks. Dianna Agron went for elegant, romantic glamour in an emerald green Carolina Herrera gown. while Lea Michele picked a sexy, slashed navy blue Diane von Furtsenberg dress.
Our picks for best-dressed also include supermodel Jessica Stam wearing a pastel blue, almost gladiator-esque John Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture dress number with gold detailing, and Hilary Swank in a burgundy, halter-necked Michael Kors gown. There are a total of 16 looks to choose from in our gallery below, so check them all out, and tell us whose gown you like best.

Young Hollywood is anything but junior in the style stakes. Watch your back, ladies-of-a-certain-age (we wouldn’t dare use the word “old”). Actresses still in their teens and early 20s have already morphed into fashions mavens. Case in point, Chloe Moretz (15) and Emma Roberts (21). The two were at the premiere of Chloe’s new movie Hick in New York last night, and we got to say that they definitely worked it out. Chloe’s always been a sartorial favorite of ours, and she looked like a total dish in a floral Dolce & Gabbana with her hair done in loose waves.
Emma, on the other hand, looked dainty, but gorgeous in a black RED Valentino frock with lace detailing and ruby pumps. Her hair was similar to Chloe’s but side-parted, as she normally does. The two actresses are also friends, as Emma tweeted Chloe on the day, writing, “Excited for Hick premiere!! ChloeGMoretz cant wait to see your pretty face.” Chloe replied saying, “i’m excited to see you!!! Mishhh youuuu.” It’s nice to see they’re so pally with each other, but right now, we’re going to put that aside and pit them against each other. Whose outfit do you prefer? Chloe’s Dolce or Emma’s Valentino? Time to put your thinking caps on!

Are sombre colors a thing at the opera? Jules Massenet’s Manon had its gala premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York last night, and there was a lot of black fashion to match the black carpet. January Jones led the way in a severe Yves Saint Laurent gown which she pulled off even though she was covered from head to toe. Since YSL sponsored the evening, most of the lovely ladies who attended wore the designer. These included Amber Heard who was very sexy in black with a cutaway back, and Chloe Moretz who looked far older than her years in a navy-and-black strapless gown with a choker.
Amber’s gown FYI, was deceptively simple from the front, as you can see in the photograph below. Like Chloe, Emmy Rossum also wore a choker, and provided relief from all the black wearing a hot pink strapless gown. Emma Roberts also attended the event, but picked a jumpsuit, rather than a dress. That’s five YSL looks in one evening and every single one was completely different from the other.
Love them? Hate them? Sorta sold on them? Let us know. We’ve saved the “best” for last for you, though. Patricia Clarkson also attended the evening and considering what she was wearing, we’re wondering whether she was in the production of Manon. Check out her very interesting (we’re being polite) after the jump. Spoiler: be prepared to gaze upon an honest-to-goodness cape! Read more…
Dust off your knock-off Manolos and stock up on virgin Cosmo ingredients: your new baby Carrie Bradshaw is here! Deadline reports that Soul Surfer star AnnaSophia Robb will portray the high school version of Sarah Jessica Parker‘s classic Sex and The City role in CW’s Carrie Diaries pilot. They had just better remember to give her Carrie’s massive six-inch roots. That’s all we’re saying!
If the show sticks to the details of author Candace Bushnell‘s prequel novel, the series will follow a teenage Carrie as she navigates life and love in the ’80s. Seeing as how actresses like Blake Lively and Emma Roberts were also allegedly in the running for the part, we’re interested to see how the sweetheart star of Bridge to Terabithia will mature into the sassy sex column we all know and love and watch for six hours every time we come down with the flu. On the other hand, Carrie is nothing if not a romantic optimist. She forgave Big how many times? Oh, and we couldn’t help but wonder…who will be her teenage version of Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda? Why mess with a good formula, right?
