On the fashion front, the 2012 Video Music Awards have been a night of surprises. Rihanna debuted an angelic pixie cut, complemented by a simple but sexy white gown, Pink‘s body looked bananas in a tight Stella McCartney frock and America’s favorite gymnasts flaunted their fashion sense, each in their own cute mini dress. Peek our Top 10 Best Dressed below… well…22 if you count each member of One Direction, The Wanted and the Fierce Five.
How supremely chic does Emma Watson look on the cover of the October issue of Glamour? Which one, you ask? Good question — because the actress is on the cover of both Glamour U.K and Glamour U.S‘ October editions. The cover on the left, of Emma looking remarkably elegant in the purple off-shoulder dress is the U.K edition. And she’s talking about her love life, probably because romance is in the air for her, due to her relationship with student, Will Adamovicz. “I wish someone had told me at 15: ‘You accept the love that you think you deserve.’ [a quote from Perks Of Being A Wallflower] I would have approached my relationships completely differently if they had. I like this idea of quality control: that we don’t have to accept just anyone into our lives. People talk about love as though it just happens to you – as though you’re a victim in it all, when actually you can make good choices and bad. But women have a natural tendency to want to nurture and take care of men,” the actress says, adding, “You always think that the guy is going to end up coming around and that you’re going to be the one that saves him – like the Oasis song. Actually I don’t think that you can change other people, but women always hope for the best.” Preach!
She’s singing some of the same tune on her other Glamour cover — the U.S version you see on the right — that’s far edgier than its U.K counterpart, but no less gorgeous. While she discusses her obsession with Lena Dunham, working with a stylist and university life, she also talks about getting caught making out with a “mystery man” at Coachella. It turned out to be boyfriend Will, and Emma says, “… My friend got me tickets for my birthday, and what am I going to say? No, I’m not going to go, because I don’t want to be photographed? But it was a huge crowd, and I thought there was no way anyone could get pictures of me, but somehow they found me. It’s difficult on my dating life, because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So it just makes it look as if I’ve had, like, 6,000 boyfriends!” Okay, not 6,000 — just one very cute boyfriend. And two awesome covers! Good one, Emma!
Based on this new Perks of Being a Wallflower clip, we’d say Charlie really lucked out: validated for his coolness, toasted by a crop of new friends, welcomed by a gorgeous Emma Watson. If this movie was based on our life, we’d get into a fight with our outcast friends about being four hours late to pick us up at Dairy Queen, and then they’d throw our shoes in the ditch. Haha, just kidding! It would be a Dunkin’ Donuts. Good thing everyone we’ve talked to so far absolutely loves Perks, or we’d be downright consumed by jealousy.
When it comes to wanting more awesome outcast friends, though, we of course mean our own personal Patrick, as portrayed by the illimitable Ezra Miller. “Ezra’s a force of nature. He is so free and he is generous and he is so nice, and we, God did we luck out because I had Emma and Logan [Lerman] really early on, I knew I had Sam and Charlie covered,” Perks director Stephen Chbosky told MTV, who debuted the clip yesterday. “Patrick was the wild card, we auditioned a lot of people, some really good people, but ultimately, he was the only choice for that part. And he brought so much life and freedom to the role, just I count my lucky stars. I cannot believe it.” Man, why can’t Patrick tell us, “You see things and you understand. You’re a wallflower”? Plus, Charlie gets to drink some kind of milkshake? Come on. Come on.
We just realized — there’s just a little over a month to go until Perks of Being a Wallflower comes out (in select theaters, on September 21). Will the film end up being a cult classic like the novel it’s been adapted from? Only time will tell, but this new lot of photographs from Summit Entertainment, makes us want to grab some caramel popcorn and watch it now. That’s a good sign. More than anything, these photographs articulate everything we know of the movie’s characters already. Who wouldn’t want to be tight with Emma Watson‘s Sam? Even though the photograph above looks a tad Titanic-esque. The trailer for Perks of Being a Wallflower was released two months ago, and it had all the signs of turning into the go-to film this fall. Epic shots, the trials and tribulations of growing up, the angst of teen romance … what’s not to love? More than anything, Emma, along with Logan Lerman‘s Charlie and Ezra Miller‘s Patrick have real chemistry together as an ensemble. Take a look at the gallery below of all the latest photographs to see what we’re talking about.
FYI, this has been the second time the movie’s been in the news this week. The first was because of the Out September cover featuring Miller, Lerman and Johnny Simmons (who portrays Brad) where Ezra comes out as “queer” saying, “I’m queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them …” It’s a really lovely piece that weaves together the making of the film, with the lives of the three actors, so have a read. But first … to the gallery!
While we wish this GIF wall contained a healthy – er, gluttonous – dose of Pattinson, there were still many memorable moments at last night’s MTV Movie Awards. From Elizabeth Banks grinding up on the Magic Mike men (I mean, who wouldn’t?!) to Kristen Stewart making out with herself to Charlize Theron beating up Michael Fassbender, there was no shortage of GIFable material. And can we talk about the over-the-top cuteness that is Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield?! It was very tempting to make this entire wall those two lovebirds.

While Charlize Theron and Kate Beckinsale predictably brought their red carpet A-game, it was the under-25 crop of starlets who caught our eye at tonight’s MTV Movie Awards. Trailblazer Award winner Emma Stone, Wallflower darling Emma Watson and perpetual Best Kiss winner Kristen Stewart each took a risk and pulled it off adorably. Stone went for an unconventionally cut ivory and black Martin Grant dress with matching Brian Atwood pumps, while Watson wore a wildly printed Brood mini and Stewart rocked a fitted Guishem frock. We loved their daring choices, along with Shailene Woodley‘s pantsuit and Kat Graham‘s deep-cut all-black gown. Check out our Top 10 Best Dressed below.
Based on the trailer that premiered during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards, the biggest perk of being a wallflower would be getting to hang out with Emma Watson and her perfect pixie cut. That prom scene! We swooned. We squeed. Joined by costars Ezra Miller and LoganLerman, Watson sparkles as new friend/possibly requited crush Sam to Lerman’s titular wallflower. “And in this moment, I swear we were infinite,” his Charlie wonders aloud from the back of a pickup. Um, seriously. Never has driving into Pittsburgh looked so epic!
But we’re not just into the film for Emma’s crop, though that is 60% to 70% of why we love this trailer. We’re also into the sweet little nerdling romance! “Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we’re nothing?” Watson’s Sam wonders. “We accept the love we think we deserve,” Charlie tells her. Yup, we are already ready to tear up. “You see things and you understand. You’re a wallflower,” Miller’s Patrick proclaims. Sadly, all you wallflowers are going to have to wait until September 14 to see Emma in action, but boy, is our journal going to hear about this!
The 2012 MTV Movie Awards kicked off, quite appropriately, with an influx of vampires, witches, wizards and werewolves. We love how Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham, who was MTV’s style correspondent for the evening, seemed to be channeling old-school cult fave Elvira with her black gown — the deep-cut neckline and shoulder pads seemed more suited to a vampire than Bonnie the witch, and that slit invited her to strike an Angelina Jolie pose or two, which seemed like just the right tone for the night.
Also having fun with her outfit tonight is Emma Watson who posed in a short, swirly-patterned gray-purple-and-black dress by Tabitha Simmons before presenting the trailer for her upcoming Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Twilight star Nikki Reed was another early arrival, in a shimmery gold number, followed by the werewolf pack’s very own Julia Jones in an, em, eye-catching lime-green cut-out dress. Early contenders for silliest outfit of the show: the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, whose footy pajamas make us very curious about their set. Stay tuned for much more fashion commentary and news!
The Mayans predicted it centuries ago! You are going to see End of The World when it comes out next summer because it has each and every one of your favorite people in it! For example, Rihanna and Emma Watson were caught running in terror on the film’s set in New Orleans today, and we know how much you like them. Joining the ladies for their last fictitious moments on earth were Jonah Hill, Aziz Ansari, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Mindy Kaling, Michael Cera and a host of other celebrities you’d want to hold hands with as the moon crashes into the sea. We call Jonah and Mindy!
Actually, the way in which the planet meets its demise in Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut is still a mystery. According to Splash, while filming on the lawn of what is supposed to be James Franco‘s house (note: genius), “the cast were highly animated whilst following a marker that will later be transformed using CGI” into what we’re assuming will be your classic Death Meteor. Wait a minute…if the Mayans are right, we’ll never get to see this movie! That’s a deep cut, Mayans. We’re going to hope for your sake that you’re wrong, in case we see you in the afterlife…
We love that we’re far enough from the white-hot popularity of Uggs and Juicy Couture sweat suits for the combination of the two to signify a very, very particular kind of person. We love it so much. We also love the spoiled bad girl steez Emma Watson will apparently be rocking as a bougie thief in Sophia Coppola‘s upcoming The Bling Ring. “Twitterers meet Nicki, Nicki meet twitterers : ),” the Perks of Being A Wallflower actress tweeted today, along with a snapshot of her fictional alter ego. We’re pretty sure…no…we’re positive we went to high school with Nicki…during which she nicknamed us “Dumptruck” and subjected us to a strict regimen of swirlies. Yeah, we’re pretty sure everyone went to high school with Nicki.
Nicki will be looting celebs homes as part of a teen burglary ring come 2013, alongside costars Erin Daniels, Taissa Farmiga and Kirsten Dunst; Leslie Mann will play her mother, a deeply unobservant woman consider the fact that her daughter is already sporting a tramp stamp. We’re also psyched to see the character Emma is portraying in Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut End of the World: herself. Haha, there’s no way fictional Emma Watson would jam our head in the toilet. We mean…hopefully we never have to find out…
