Are Honey Boo Boo‘s parents finally getting married? Where were Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone seen cuddling? And what made Iron Man 3 so “easy” for Gwyneth Paltrow?
How did Emma Stone surprise Andrew Garfield on their recent date night? Which actors are reportedly up for the part of Augustus in The Fault In Our Stars? And what are the critics and (the fans) saying about Iron Man 3?
Mad Men’s effect on pop culture is undeniable (what else would explain the popularity of trapezoid coffee tables and hipsters ordering Manhattans in dive bars?). The show’s most lasting influence has been on fashion — from A-line frocks a’la Betty to mod, Meagen-esque shifts, everyone wants a piece of this mid-century fabulosity! Read more…
We’re kind of loving the new indie smash, The Place Behind the Pines — the acting’s top shelf, blah, blah, but what’s really fab is that it stars super-steamy, real-life couple, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes. Which got us thinking…what are our favorite flicks starring off-screen lovebirds? Read more…
She’s bare and she doesn’t care! Emma Stone is hands-down one of the loveliest ladies in Hollywood, and over the weekend she proved that she doesn’t need any outside help. The Spider-Man actress ventured out in Boston sans-makeup, and looked just as gorgeous as ever!
And what is Emma Stone doing in Brooklyn? All this plus new photos from The Bling Ring and casting news for Divergent in this morning’s “While You Were Sleeping”.
This one’s going to be a collector’s item. The legendary photographer, Bruce Weber, has shot Vanity Fair‘s 19th Hollywood Portfolio (out in March) which not only features Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck on the cover, it has a gorgeous spread of stars — 75 in all — in vintage poses inside as well. All of them were photographed in spots that have been featured in some memorable movies making the areas themselves legendary, much like the films they were spotted in. The bed on the cover, for instance, is the bed that’s part of that famous scene in The Godfather (1972), where the movie producer wakes up with his horse’s head in it. And the bed’s in the mansion used in the film as well, so you have the real deal. Some of these photographers are truly breathtaking. Kerry Washington looking like a gorgeous Old Hollywood singer, Olivia Wilde in vintage showgirl gear, Armie Hammer like a lonely ’50s naval captain with a couple of hours to spare before he has to set sail again — Weber’s put together a portfolio that has the sepia tint of Hollywood nostalgia firmly, but perfectly in place. Bella Heathcote and Eddie Redmayne dressed up (and dancing) like Fred and Ginger with a gorilla in their midst is another sight to behold. Make sure you check out the behind-the-scenes shots of celebrities like Selena Gomez and Brad caught between shots.

When we decided to track the awards season fashions of Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain, Eddie Redmayne and Emma Stone, we had no idea how much they’d fluctuate from gorgeous to meh to bleh and back again from week to week. As you can see in the graph above, these stars’ Style Points have been fluctuating madly. And since we’re basing this “race” on the opinions of esteemed experts — Glamour online style editor Nikki Ogunnaike, Yahoo! Entertainment’s New York bureau chief Breanne Heldman, MTV Style’s associate editor Maud Deitch — along with our own Ambika Muttoo and Sabrina Rojas Weiss, we don’t think this is just due to our own arbitrary moods. Last night’s SAG Awards saw an abrupt change of position as Amanda and Jennifer got their acts together and showed up in stunning (and matching!) navy gowns. Oddly enough, last week’s front-runner Kerry Washington sank to the bottom with her white Rodarte. Emma Stone was a no-show at this event — now we’re wondering if she’s skipping out on the rest of this awards season altogether, which would be a shame for us fashion voyeurs. But we have the other seven to enjoy below:
Breanne: +5. “Yes! Finally! This Zac Posen dress does everything I’ve been wanting for Amanda all awards season and then some. Extra love for the necklace.
Nikki: +4. “To say I’m obsessed with this Zac Posen dress would be putting it mildly. The dark blue color against her alabaster skin made for an amazing contrast while the mega train added an appropriate touch of drama.”
Ambika: +5. “I cannot find fault with this gown. I also want to have babies with the color. Amanda likes these structural elements in her gown, and often gets them wrong. But when she gets it right, look out world. This Zac Posen gown is the apex of those rare moments.”
Maud: +5. “I love this. Pairing that epic Zac Posen fishtail with that enormous Lorraine Schwartz pendent? Inspired styling choice. This is one of the first of Amanda Seyfried’s looks that made me totally forget that she was ever in Mamma Mia! She looks like a true movie star.”
Sabrina: +5. “Amanda was hilarious on the red carpet, telling E! she hoped Les Miserables wouldn’t win because she was scared to walk up the stairs in that gown. No matter how good Argo is, I think we were tragically deprived of that sight. Also, I want (a knockoff of) that necklace now.”
Average score: 4.8
We’re in a rare down week of awards season, and while most editors are breathing a sigh of relief and/or eyeing the bundled-up fashions of the Sundance stars, we decided to keep going with the VH1 Celebrity Style Points awards season competition. In lieu of an actual event to judge, we had our panel — Yahoo! Entertainment’s New York bureau chief Breanne Heldman, MTV Style’s associate editor Maud Deitch, Glamour online style editor Nikki Ogunnaike, and our own Ambika Muttoo and Sabrina Rojas Weiss — look back at an outfit each of the eight contenders wore to a movie premiere in the past year. Emma Stone, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooper, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence were delightfully unpredictable at these events, and we love how that shook up the results a bit.

Nikki: +4 “Consider Kerry my newest style crush. She killed it on the Django press tour, and this Peter Pilotto dress was just the beginning. There are so many things going on with this dress that it could be considered a don’t, but I think she pulls it off with aplomb.”
Maud: +3 “While my first reaction was to rub my eyes and say, ‘Wait, what?’ to this dress, I really love the way it fits her. I love how willing she is to step over into the whimsical. That said, it’s wearing her a little bit.”
Breanne: +3 “I know many people hated this dress — it was featured in our ‘What Were They Thinking?!’ column — but I kinda dig it. It’s got such a fun sense of whimsy. We’re so used to seeing Kerry in power suits on TV; I love seeing her be so playful on the red carpet. Love it or hate it, I dare you to name anyone who would be able to pull off this Peter Pilotto number as well.”
Ambika: +2 “This Peter Pilotto is SO cray I begrudgingly like it. It takes cojones to wear something like that, so while it is truly nuts … I applaud her.”
Sabrina: +3 “This looks like a parody of crazy red-carpet style. Which is why I am blown away by how good Kerry looks in it. Don’t try this at home.”
Average score: 3
