Just in time for Martin Luther King Day, we have for you an exclusive red band trailer of the movie specifically designed to offend people of all races, creeds and sexual orientation, Movie 43. In the most hilarious way, of course, because that was MLK Jr.’s dream, right? When the first trailer came out, we pointed out the things we couldn’t help but laugh at, even though we knew we really shouldn’t. This new trailer includes many of those again — Anna Faris‘ indecent proposal to Chris Pratt, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber bullying their home-schooled teen, Terrence Howard’s totally racist basketball coaching technique — and a couple of other jems, namely:
- Kieran Culkin and Emma Stone debating which of the Golden Girls was “the slutty one.”
- Elizabeth Banks pointing out to Josh Duhamel that their cartoon cat masturbates to pictures of him.
Ew. But jeez, can you blame him?

We’re a little bit confused about the purpose of Emma Stone’s cover photo in W. Not that this is the first time the fashion magazine has baffled us by featuring a cover model in no clothing. I mean, that’s a very stylish bra, and I’m sure if I saw the whole leather jacket she has wrapped around her arms, I’d like that too. But mostly, the vibe we’re getting here is “Emma Stone can be a corrupted, sexy little girl, in addition to all the roles you already like her for.” The messy hair and minimal makeup add to that post-coital look. Inside the mag, she’s wearing more clothing that follows in this punk princess theme. And none of this fits either A) the quirky comedian she normally portrays in real life, or B) the mob moll she’s playing in Gangster Squad.
Not that she doesn’t look good, of course. Also, she makes up for this confusion with this quote about her appearance as a presenter at last year’s Oscars. “It was for best visual effects, so Ben [Stiller] and I had all these funny ideas. Planet of the Apes was nominated, so we thought we would bring a chimp onstage and I’d say, “Oh, it looks so real.” And Ben would be like, “It’s a real chimp.” And I’d be insisting, “Oh, my God — the work they do now is so staggering.” And he’d repeat, “It’s a real chimp.” But apparently, you can’t make the Oscar presentation about a particular movie or else the audience thinks you’re swaying the vote toward that movie.”
Any girl who’s disappointed she didn’t get to bring a chimp onstage at the Oscars can do no wrong in our book. Academy, please make her present again this year.

Now that all the glitter has settled from the Golden Globes, it’s time for us to take a good hard look at how our eight contenders for the VH1 Celebrity Awards Season Style Points Race performed on the red carpet Sunday night. Our panel of judges — Yahoo! Entertainment‘s New York bureau chief Breanne Heldman, MTV Style’s associate editor Maud Deitch, and our own Ambika Muttoo and Sabrina Rojas Weiss — scrutinized their gowns, separates (!) and tuxes and came up with some interesting results. As you can see in our fancypants graph above, Les Miz stars Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried, plus Silver Linings charmer Bradley Cooper fared pretty well; while poor Jessica Chastain earned universal boos. Here our detailed assessments, in from best to worst.
Awards season got into full swing this week, and we here at VH1 Celebrity were thinking that these talented actors and actresses weren’t competing against each other in enough contests. So we devised a little race of our own based on something we’re calling Style Points. Our panel of fashion experts — our own Sabrina Rojas Weiss and Ambika Muttoo, plus Breanne Heldman, New York bureau chief at Yahoo! Entertainment, and MTV Style associate editor Maud Deitch — will be grading eight key celebs after their major red carpet appearances (on a scale of -5 to +5). Who are these lucky stars? Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper and Eddie Redmayne — basically, the actors we expect to wow us from now through the Oscars. We’ll track their rankings and at the end of all this madness, declare the most stylish star in all the land on February 25! To kick this all off, we decided to grade two outfits from each contestant.
Anne Hathaway at the National Board of Review Gala and the Critics Choice Movie Awards
National Board of Review Gala
“Major points for the lady-suit, but big big deductions for the early 2000′s emo hair,” Maud says, but Ambika disagrees. “This androgynous, yet romantic Saint Laurent Spring 2013 tuxedo fits her like a dream and really complements her edgy short hair.” Sabrina hearts the ruffled cuffs.
Critics Choice Movie Awards
Yesterday was a sartorial heavyweight day thanks to three different premieres in three different cities with three different stars, each hitting it out of the fashion ball-park, so to speak. We’ll start with Jessica Chastain on the left who arrived at the New York screening of Mama at the 2012 New York Film Critics Circle Awards looking dreamy and romantic in a full-skirted, black lace overlay, embroidered Oscar de la Renta frock. She accessorized very smartly with Christian Louboutin black pumps, and Harry Winston collar diamond necklace that looked like it was worth it’s weight in … diamonds. In the middle, is Emma Stone who looked adorable and ever-so-slightly kitschy at the premiere of Gangster Squad in Hollywood. She wore a red Pre-Fall 2013 silk and brocade Lanvin dress adding the same brands ‘Babylon’ crystal necklace and Volubilis’ crystal flower brooch at the waist, with a Lanvin (again) ‘Passion’ clutch, all in red. The only non Lanvin piece on her were the Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ red pumps. Lastly, to the right, we have Kerry Washington at the Paris premiere of Django Unchained wearing a gorgeous flowing, printed Rochas Spring 2013 strapless gown. She simply added a pair of ivory-and-diamond Monique Pean earrings which were clearly visible as her hair was up in a top-knot. Don’t make use choose between these three looks because we love them all. Although, to be honest, Kerry may have inched ahead for us, but that may change in a half hour. Who are you feeling the most here?

2012! The year of The (supposed) Apocalypse. The year of “Call Me Maybe” (which may be related to the Apocalypse, who really knows?). And, finally, the year of a few ill-fated celebrity hookups. Call them flings or fleeting romances or however else you hold on to your faith in true love, from Skrillex and Ellie Goulding to Russell Brand and Ginger Spice, these are the celebs who got together and then quickly broke apart this very year:
Are you the sort of person who scrolls down to see what shoes celebrities are wearing when you see an outfit that interests you? Then this is the list for you. Even if you aren’t a shoe fanatic, this is still a fun exercise, to be honest. We’ve compiled together our list of the top 25 most drool-worthy heels, platforms and boots spotted on celebrities in 2012. And to make it even more interesting, when you visit the gallery below, we’ve put pictures of the shoes first, with the celebrity reveal right after, so you can have a go at guessing who the gorgeous heel, platform, pump, bootie or boot belongs to! The caption on each celebrity reveal will also tell you what brand the shoe is and where and when it was worn. All our favourite celebrities are in there: Beyonce, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and a whole host more.
A couple of spoilers, though. We won’t tell you the color of the shoes so you can still have a guess when you look through the pictures. We adore Mila Kunis‘ Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ and Miley Cyrus‘ Jimmy Choo ‘Tippi” pumps, respectively. Bella Thorne‘s Miu Miu platform booties are to die for, as are Rooney Mara‘s YSL ‘Tribtoo’ slingbacks. Have a blast figuring out which is which. We wish you a happy and well-heeled rest of 2012!

We may not have the big bucks to get the fancy blowouts celebrities get done by the best hairstylists, but there’s at least one thing we can get that puts us in the same league. Hair accessories, which have been huge this year! Floral head-pieces, sparkling stars, crystal hair-bows, and minimal metallic headbands have been all the rage and spotted on the likes of Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence. And plenty more, but we’ve culled out our top 15 looks for you out of all of 2012.
A couple of stand-outs for us. Sarah Jessica Parker‘s custom Mickey Mouse ears made by L’Wren Scott, worn when she hosted the Barneys New York And Disney Electric Holiday Window Unveiling in November, were to die for. Emma Stone‘s delicate gold Jennifer Behr laurel leaf bandeaux worn at the The Amazing Spider-Man premiere at Oktyabr cinema hall in Moscow in June had us floored. Chloe Moretz also wore a darling crystal hair-bow at the National Board of Review Awards gala in January that wasn’t just age-appropriate. We insist it’s appropriate for every age. Which means a 30-year-old woman (i.e. this writer) gets to wear one and not feel like we’re edging in on a 14-year-old’s style territory! Feel free to pore through our gallery for the rest of the looks!

Excuse us while we let out a prolonged “duh!” Hunger Games franchise queen Jennifer Lawrence is beloved all over the world for her acting skillz, refreshing real talk and (of course) her gorgeous style and super hot bod. And now AskMen.com just bestowed upon her the title of Most Desirable Woman of the Year! 2012 has definitely been the year of the J-Law, since her record busting turn as Katniss Everdeen earlier this year. She’s covered W, Vogue and Elle magazine, become the new face of Dior, and most recently switched it up with the indie cred-getting Playbook Silver Linings. That’s a hell of a year for anyone, let alone a 22 year old!
And now she can add Most Desirable Woman to her impressive trophy stash! It’s a pretty serious honor when you consider her stiff competition, including the likes of pop goddess Rihanna, Esquire’s respective sexiest women of the year Miranda Kerr and Mila Kunis, runner/YouTube celebrity Michelle Jenneke and SI covergirl Kate Upton. Head on down to the gallery below to see how they ranked, and which other lovely ladies made it into the top 10.
One of the reasons we adore Emma Stone so much is how very real she seems most of the time — sure she’s stunning and hilarious, but she also acts like a normal girl who just happens to be really good at a thing that made her famous. So, if it turns out that this totally random, unsourced rumor from Radar Online about her having made a sex tape before she was famous turns out to be true, that would kind of just be further proof that she was once young and foolish like the rest of us. “She made it long before she started dating Andrew Garfield, and before she really became a household name. She was just young and probably thought nothing would ever come of it,” an unnamed person told the gossip site, adding the tape is still in the hands of the person who made it but might not necessarily stay that way.
If the tape stays private, this is totally the kind of rumor you can make up and never have to prove, so we don’t really believe it at the moment. And if it does turn out to be real, we hope it never sees the light of day. We like how open and sunny Emma is in her interviews and public appearances, and we don’t want any gross violations of her privacy making her start to shy away from that. Basically, we like the idea of her sometimes making mistakes, but that doesn’t mean we want them all out there for public consumption.
What do you guys think?
