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”.
Why are things looking bad for Lindsay Lohan once more? And who just got left out of an impromptu Charlie’s Angels reunion this past weekend? The answers to this, plus a sneak peak of Emma Watson as a bad girl in this morning’s The Scoop.
It wasn’t only onstage. Lots of gorgeous celebrities either whizzed through the red carpet super quickly at the People’s Choice Awards last night, or chose to skip it entirely, only to appear on stage to accept an award or two. We picked our top 10 from this list and plenty of your favorites are included. Jennifer Lawrence to begin with in a Valentino Fall 2012 Couture dress with Nicholas Kirkwood black satin pumps and Cartier jewels. Love J.Law, but not so enamored by this dress. This is the photograph she’s most working it in, but in others, it ages her and swamps her frame. Then, we have Sandra Bullock in a blue custom Vera Wang strapless bodice and pencil skirt, but what really got us excited, were her hot pink pumps matched with her hot pink lipstick. Jennifer Aniston in Christian Dior surprised us, because even though her dress was her usual black, it was quite playful and featured a flounced skirt. She paired it with Tom Ford black ankle-strap heels and Fred Leighton jewels. Emma Watson wore a jazzy, kaleidoscopic Peter Pilotto with strappy Tabitha Simmons ‘Bailey’ sandals, while Katy Perry was the most toned down we’ve seen in a while, in a demure Valentino Fall 2012 dress with Jimmy Choo suede pumps, Jennifer Behr headpiece, and Sylva & Cie earrings. Hits of gorgeous yellow were provided by Brittany Snow‘s pale daffodil draped Maria Lucia Hohan three-quarters dress and Melissa Rauch‘s bright sunflower Junko Yoshioka gown accessorized expertly with Stuart Weitzman gold heels and a gold Vincent Camuto clutch. Shout out to Ellen Pompeo for busting out some Lanvin as well! Check out all the looks in the gallery below.

I’d like to make a personal true confession before I begin. While I was in high school, I resembled someone aged around 37. I routinely had fellow classmates coming up to me in the hallway showing me hall-passes because they thought I was a teacher. Needless to say, it was rough. So that’s why I feel for Emma Watson right now, who seems to be having the opposite problem. The lovely English rose was stopped at New York’s JFK airport by FSA agents who thought that she was a child!
The 22 year old scripted out the incident on her Twitter:
Passport control: ‘Unaccompanied minor?’ Me: ‘Sorry?’
Passport control: ‘Where is ur guardian?’ Me: ‘I’m 22!!!!!!!’ #neverwearingabackpackagain.
‘The really sad thing is that this is not the first time this has happened.
Oof, tough break Emma! But we know from first hand experience, it can be a LOT worse. Trust us. But we bet that misunderstanding would never have happened if she showed up looking like she does in the very grown up pictures below!

It’s on all of us to pitch in and aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but it touches a cold, hard part of our soul to see famous people step up and do what’s right following a tragedy. They just have so much more money than us! In addition to Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Sting and Billy Joel reminding America to have a heart via song at last week’s Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together telethon, plenty of celebs did their part this week. For example…
We here at VH1 are maybe getting a little election weary, so we decided to spice things up a bit in the last stretch before November 6. Our own Kate Spencer started asking stars at last week’s Hollywood Awards to nominate each other for office, and we absolutely love the response she got from The Perks of Being a Wallflower writer/director Stephen Chbosky and star Ezra Miller.
“You know, believe it or not, Emma Watson,” Chbosky said, nominating another of his Perks stars.
“Emma Watson is such a good choice!” Miller agreed. “I think she would be a brilliant diplomat or something. She’s an incredibly brilliant communicator, incredibly compassionate, too.”
“This is not red carpet stuff,” Chbosky assured us.
“Man, but she couldn’t be president ’cause she wasn’t born here,” Miller noted. But Chbosky reasoned, “Prime minister! There are other countries.”
In every interview of Emma Watson we’ve ever seen, the 22-year-old Perks of Being a Wallflower star is nothing but outgoing, cheery and warm. But it turns out that’s not necessarily what she’s looking for in a boyfriend. Or at least not what she’s used to looking for. On today’s Ellen, she talks about the difference between British and American boys. The British lads “dress really well and they are very well mannered,” she said. “But they are also very restrained. Usually in the whole courting situation, I‘m used to being first of all, ignored for the first two months of the ritual. And then maybe they’ll acknowledge my presence. Then, they’ll probably be a little mean to me. And then, maybe we’ll, you know … whatever.
“Then I arrive in America, and I remember a few nights into [attending] Brown, this guy just being like, ‘I like you. You’re great. Let’s go on a date. Let’s do it,’ ” Watson recalled. “I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, what just happened?’ This is like a huge culture shock for me. They’re very like open and very straight-forward.”
One black and one white have already landed on the worst-dressed list at the Elle Women In Hollywood party, thanks to Lea Michele and Julianne Hough. The rest of the monochromatic bunch did alright for themselves, thankfully. Emma Watson played it super safe, perhaps because she was picking up the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star Spotlight Award. We’re assuming she’s wearing Calvin Klein! Elle Fanning shook things up as she usually does — we can’t believe we actually said that about a 14 year-old, but it’s true — in an edgy Calvin Klein dress and Dolce & Gabbana shoes and bag. Not many people could carry of that length, but Elle ends up looking coltish and youthful and pulls it off like a pro. We also can’t believe we’re saying this about a 12 year-old but we should get used to it because our favorite Kiernan Shipka is a sartorial star and didn’t disappoint at all in a gorgeous, age-appropriate Moschino dress. Is it wrong to want a 12 year-old’s wardrobe? We can’t help it — she always looks so wonderful!
We don’t want to rag on Uma Thurman because she just had a baby recently, so we won’t say much. But what we will say is that half-sheer skirts and lank hair don’t work on anyone. They wouldn’t even work on Jaime King, who is gorgeous and blessed with a body that comes around once every century or something. Luckily she went minimal and safe, like Emma, in pure white. We also think that Jenna Fischer‘s Basler dress, Cole Haan shoes and Lauren Merkin bag would have pulled together beautifully if she did something more exciting to her hair and face. A red lip wouldn’t kill her, right?

You have to admit that Sarah Jessica Parker is looking pretty fierce on this November cover of Elle. Love her or not-so love her, you still have to admit that SJP really has the goods! That very sexy cut-out dress in Calvin Klein and the spectacular, almost tribal looking necklace is by House of Lavande, FYI. This cover story has also piqued our interest. It’s a “Women In Hollywood” section filled with stars like Emma Watson, Octavia Spencer and Elle Fanning, apart from Sarah Jessica, talking about their experiences in the industry. All styled to the nines of course! Emma, for instance, talks about her Harry Potter history, stating, “I just knew, from the moment I read “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” that I was meant to play that role…I put one of the Potter films on the other night. And it was amazing to me that I had done all of that. I have to remind myself every now and then.” Octavia’s story is a juicy one, as she talks about standing up to a powerful producer in H-Town, revealing, “Early on I had to stand up to a producer – I won’t say who, but he is famous, famous. He dressed me down in a crowded office. I told him right there in front of a hundred people, ‘You don’t know me well enough to use that tone’…And then I ran to the bathroom and cried like a baby. But he never addressed me that way again. And he is known as a yeller.”
As for our cover celebrity, SJP brings up playing the character of “Carrie” on Sex And The City for so long. While wearing a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress and Casadei heels, of course. She says she doesn’t want to repeat the same role in the future, with, “I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.” Apparently, there’s going to be a “Women in Hollywood” event mid-month too, so we’re going to keep our eyes peeled for that one.
