This one’s going to be a hard choice to lock down, peeps. At least it was for us, which is why we’re putting it up for a vote. It was wonderful to see pops of hot pink on the SAG Awards red carpet last night, especially on three such lovely ladies who pull off the color so well. We’ll start with Lea Michele. We’re not too keen on the ombre hair — a trend we really wish would go away — but fell for the drama that was her fuchsia Valentino Resort 2013 ball gown. It’s different from the usual super sexy, thigh-high slit Lea that we know and not-often love. So this chic, pull-back look was a welcome change. Jimmy Choo heels and Jennifer Mayer jewelry finished the outfit quite nicely. Next up, we have sartorial favorite, Freida Pinto. The actress wore a stunning flouro-pink Roland Mouret gown, that draped in a column around her like a boss. The black belt at the waist was the perfect touch, as was the soft styling of the vintage hair. Now, if you twisted our arm and forced to pick our look for the evening, then we’d have to admit that Nina Dobrev has inched ahead. This hot pink Elie Saab Spring 2013 gown with the ever-so-subtle cutouts is possibly one of the best looks the actress has ever worn, period. Take a bow, Nina. Actually, take a bow, all three of you. Now, all that’s left to be seen is your vote!
Did you check out our exhaustive coverage of the Golden Globes yesterday? We’re hoping you did! We thought we’d give you a tiny break from all the information and wait till you came back refreshed. Because after any awards show, you know there’s going to be a mad after-party. One of the biggest ones that went down was the “ Warner Brothers Instyle Golden Globe Party” which seemed to be the really hot ticket for the night. Because pretty much all of young — and yes, hot — Hollywood showed up in droves. You’ll be able to see all the faces and the gorgeous dresses in our gallery below, of course. Julianne Hough wore a pink Jenny Packham gown which we far preferred to her Golden Globes Monique Lhuillier poufball. Conversely, we prefer Kelly Osbourne‘s Golden Globes Zac Posen gown to the fussy lavender dress (by the same designer) worn to this party. Freida Pinto wore a sequined Antonio Berardi Spring 2013 sheath, while Selena Gomez upped the hardware with a gold Atlier Versace minidress. Her bestie, Vanessa Hudgens also went for metallics wearing a Jenny Packham black sequin, long-sleeved gown with heavily embellished gold shoulders. Ashley Tisdale went in the opposite direction wearing a minimal blush colored Issa column which looked lovely on her. She accessorized with an L.K. Bennett ‘Alexia’ clutch and Jerome C. Rousseau strappy sandals. Nina Dobrev was lady-like in a 50′s inspired icy blue Oscar de la Renta frock. Enjoy the pictures!
Firstly, can we just say, what is up with Leighton Meester‘s blondness? We know that’s a strange thing to say, because her natural hair color is blonde, but we’re so used to seeing her as a beautiful brunette now. You’re seeing this too, right? Her hair is looking rather strange in the picture on the right? Can’t fault the rest of her though. She was in Paris along with the lovely Freida Pinto and Hilary Swank, but this wasn’t just for any old premiere. The three actresses were invited to sit front row at the Salvatore Ferragamo Cruise Collection 2013 Show at Galerie Denon. Which also isn’t a big deal, you may say? Wrong. This show has made history as the first ramp show to happen at the Louvre, as Ferragamo is currently sponsoring the major exhibition at the museum called “The Virgin and Saint Anne.” That was the last painting ever made by Leonardo da Vinci. So yes — a fashion show inside the Louvre sounds pretty spectacular. The three ladies, of course, all wore Ferragamo. But whose look do you prefer? We’re currently leaning towards Freida’s Fall 2012 RTW dress, but have fallen in love with Hilary’s shoes! And we wouldn’t mind taking Leighton’s textured skirt out for a twirl either.
The 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival wrapped up this weekend, and not a minute too soon. Our brains were starting to feel the fatigue due to the influx of too many premieres and too much fashion. But now that it’s over, we’re feeling a sort of fond affinity to a couple of gowns that stand out in our minds, not because they were best-dressed or worst-dressed, but because we emitted some very loud WTF’s when we saw them. So, without further ado, and because we like your WTF’s much better than our own, we’d like to present the top five of this exalted list to you.
1. Diane Kruger: This is Christian Dior Couture, guys. We want it. Even though we’re screaming WTF, we covet it. Only, Diane, the Victorian Era called. It wants dibs on the bustle next time.
2. Jada Pinkett Smith:Toy Story 2 was on television on rerun Sunday yesterday. We realized that if the evil Emperor Zurg had a consort, then we’d vote for Jada in this Paco Rabanne number as the number one pick for the part. She’s so AWESOME she’s beyond WTF. And could inflict real plain with those shoulder pads!
The 65th annual Cannes Film Festival is now in full swing, and some of the biggest stars in the world have flown across the pond to strut their stuff in the riviera sun! We’ve already brought you the most incredible styles of the opening day, but the celebs are definitely not running low on daring styles. We’re starting to wonder if there was some kind of dress memo, because lately a large number of lovely ladies have been venturing out in veryyy low-cut gowns. From actresses Eva Longoria and Diane Kruger, to rocker mom Jada Pinkett Smith and model Eva Herzigova, these past few days at Cannes have been brought to you by the letter “V.” You know, as in “deep v-necked.” Check out more plunging necklines and other fashion favorites in the gallery below!
The whole cast of Immortals came out to play at the premiere of the film, held yesterday in L.A. Freida Pinto was murderously chic in a metallic, textured Antonio Berardi gown. Henry Cavill, the lead in the movie, wore a suit that barely contained his Superman physique. Isabel Lucas looked slender and very pretty in aÂ Roksanda IlincicÂ dress while a suited-up Kellan Lutz held on tight to new girlfriend, Sharni Vinson.
Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Mickey Rourke and Joseph Morgan rounded off the cast. Joseph, FYI, plays our favorite new badass vamp on The Vampire Diaries and his co-star Claire Holt was at the premiere, as well.Â Also spotted were 50 Cent, Nia Vardalos, Estella Warren, Audrina Patridge and Kristin Cavallari. Browse the gallery below to watch them strut their stuff on the red carpet.
Is anyone else totally feeling Henry Cavill? ‘Cause we are in spades. Which is a really good thing considering he has two huge roles lined up. The first, as we know, is Superman. The second is a film we’re itching to watch — Immortals. Watch the trailer to see why we’re champing at the bit. Cavill plays the legendary hero Theseus and can we also get a woot for Freida Pinto, who’s working her high priestess role? One question begs to be asked — does Cavill spent most of the movie shirtless? Or is that just the art of smart trailer-ing. Because if so … Bravo!
This is the life! The eighteenth annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala took place yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival. The super schmancy event was held at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France and involved the usual — gowns and jewelry worth approximately three of our lifetimes! Kirsten Dunst showed up looking as fresh as a daisy, completely unaffected by the rumor that her nighttime partying kept Brangelina up all night.
Janet Jackson looked pretty svelte and rocked some bright blue nail polish! Irina Shayk showed up with a slit cut up till there, while cuties Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto snuggled up for the cameras. Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani added a bit of punk to the proceedings while old hands Goldie Hawn and Brooke Shields looked flawless in dull gold and white respectively. Join us in our envy by taking a look at the photos below. We’re making margaritas!
Here they are — our picks for the absolute ugliest, WTF-iest and just way off outfits at tonight’s Costume Institute Gala. The annual event — held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and hosted by Vogue and Anna Wintour — is arguably one of fashion’s biggest nights, and it always amazes us that so many people get it SO.WRONG. Kirsten Dunst! Riri! These are the gals we look to for inspiration, but their outfits, hair and shoes just blahhhh-ed tonight. Christina Hendricks normally wins every time she walks the carpet, but this outfit looks like something she dug out of a dumpster and smeared on her body. Naomi Campbell should throw her rhinestone-covered Blackberry at herself for this abysmal showing (Do we spy a scrunchie?!), Ashley Olsen‘s arms are sleeved in 100% fail and Freida Pinto is going to have to nail it on every red carpet for the rest of the year to make us forgive and forget this hipster douche tie monstrosity.
With Your Highness and his Oscar hosting gig big flops, it’s good that James Franco is getting back to the quality dramatic work that has separated him from the other Judd Apatow-born goofballs. In the trailer for this summer’s Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, James plays a serious doctor who’s discovered a serious drug that allows “the brain to repair itself,” with his serious pronouncement “we call it…the cure” followed by one of those dramatic foghorn whomps from the Inception trailer. Though fellow Danny Boyle vet Freida Pinto is worried, James tells her the drug “has the potential to change lives” (whomp) and goes on to “the next phase” (whomp). Unfortunately, the drug makes all the test apes smart, and “our greatest discovery” becomes “our greatest threat.” Whomp.
So far the reaction from fans has been “yeah, but we’ve got guns,” so hopefully there’s some explanation in the film why we can’t just shoot all these damn dirty apes before they take over the Earth and ruin things for Charlton Heston. Either way, if there’s more awesome The Birds-style shots of apes patiently waiting to crush some human like in the trailer, this should be a lot of fun even if serious James Franco is serious throughout.
