It’s that time of the year again. The leaves are going to start turning soon. Wardrobes are too, to accommodate the changing seasonal trends. It’s a tricky path though, because there’s so much information out there. What we’ve done is gleaned the top 10 trends out of all the tomes of “what to wear” out there and put them on the list. More than anything, these are the 10 trends that our fashion-forward celebrities have been wearing out and about, on magazine covers, in campaigns and for various events and premieres.
2. Oversized Coats:Another massive trend this season, be certain that your coat is big enough so it looks voluminous and chic, but not big enough so that you look lost in. Make sure you’re wearing it, and it’s not wearing you. Ashley Olsen got it right on the subscriber cover of Elle UK!
3. Monochrome: This fall trend can be worn in many avatars. Celebrities like Rihanna, Chloe Sevigny and Victoria Beckham have channeled monochrome into different looks — funky, mod and classic. So can you.
4. Modern Country/ Americana: Taylor Swift‘s Vogue cover got this trend spot on. Oversized hats, chunky knits, tweeds have been revived into modern silhouettes. It’s the new nostalgia. Think lots of Rodarte!
Those pouty lips, that porcelain skin, that heart-shaped face…yeah, Once Upon A Time‘s Jennifer Morrison and Sebastian Stan are dating now, alright. They also look like they came out of the same womb! Did we just get too real on you? Of course, Jennifer and Sebastian wouldn’t be the first celebrity couple who, well, coupled with someone who looked shocking like him/her. Take a look at our other celebrity look-alike pairs if you don’t believe us. Of course, they’re all hot, so think of it this way: it’s not creepy, it just means they have good taste. And maybe it’s a little creepy…
Okay, so we’re not really that angry. Just jelly that Gwyneth’s Coldplay frontman husband thought to make such a gigantic romantic gesture at their Miami concert last week. Like, Chris and Gwyneth might as well be on top of the Empire State building at this point. Or he could have come to her doorstep in the pouring rain and carried her upstairs. Well, we guess it would be their doorstep, which makes it slightly less sexy since he would have just opened the garage door and walked up the steps…look, our point is that everyone should be stopping every concert to kiss their spouses. Challenge made, every other married musician out there!
We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge andRobert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
The annual Met Costume Gala Ball is known as being the Oscars of the fashion world, at least in terms of A-List star wattage. We’ve got more sartorial analysis of tonight’s big night en route, but we wanted to these pictures of VH1 Celebrity style icons like Kristen Stewart, Rihanna (see more of RiRi here!), Beyoncé, and Emma Stone up for you to digest as quickly as possible. We’ve also got some incredible looks from the likes of the always divisive Gwyneth Paltrow, the radiant Florence Welch, and the comeback of January Jones (who, IRL, shares nothing in common with “Fat Betty”). Dig in now, but save some room because we’ve got more to come!
If you wanna turn heads (and headlines) on the red carpet, all you gotta do is wear is see-through outfit with no underwear underneath! This approach has been getting C and D-listers some badly needed press at least since Rose McGowan strolled into the ’98 VMAs wearing a net and a piece of string. But occasionally even Oscar winning superstars feel the temptation to walk on the wild side and step out in a planned “wardrobe malfunction.” Everyone loves attention!
We guess the revealing LBD Gwyneth Paltrow wore to The Conversation launch last night in NYC isn’t too scandalous in compared to some of the other outfits that we’ve seen out and about in recent weeks. But the commando-style flesh flash does seem to be something of a trend lately. From low names like Melody Thornton and Adrienne Bailon to huge celebs like Rihanna and Lady Gaga, much of Hollywood has been going bare lately. Check out the (VERY NSFW) gallery below and see what we mean!
Paul McCartney may be turning 70 this year, but “the cute Beatle” still has no trouble attracting the ladies! Dozens of stars turned out on Friday for the L.A. premiere of Macca’s “My Valentine” music video, which the pop legend directed himself! Kristen Stewart put in an appearance, but seemed to have left her rebel roots at home as she made an entrance in a super preppy skirt and blazer. We wonder what her rock ‘n’ roll godmother Joan Jett, who showed up wearing her trademark punky black leather, must have said. But that’s just the tip of the A-list iceberg. Gwen Stefani, Miranda Kerr, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zooey Deschanel, Pam Anderson…will the hotties never cease? Beatlemania is alive and well, folks. Check out more in the gallery below!
So, it wasn’t the most surprising of Oscar ceremonies. That’s why we have to thank the women who made things interesting with their sartorial choices — all that color, all those sequins and pleats, all those perfect silhouettes served to liven up the self-congratulatory goings on at the Kodak Theatre. Gwyneth Paltrow swooped in wearing a cape, guys. And Angelina Jolie’s slinky Versace made her actually act silly in public, which is a virtue we didn’t know dresses possessed. Viola Davis’ Vera Wang should make actual emeralds feel dull by comparison. And we don’t even know what the color of Michelle Williams’ gown is, it’s just perfect.
Our next door neighbor, a former fashion editor, has been texting us all night with the exact opposite opinions on many of these looks — she says Angie’s a mess, and Melissa Leo (whom we put in the worst-dressed list) is great — so we’re expecting more debate from you guys on this too. Flip through our top eight below and then tell us what you think. Who did we miss? Who doesn’t deserve our praise? Sound off in the comments!
Relax, we’re not actually going to give you diet tips on this, the most holy of holidays for food lovers. We’re merely suggesting that if you’re anything like us, it’s hard to remember that there will be consequences if we ask for second helpings of mashed potatoes and pie. We slip into a food coma and wake up just long enough to eat the leftovers. So we thought we’d provide this little visual inspiration: 24 hot celebrities — from Britney Spears to Henry Cavill, Pippa Middleton to Hugh Jackman, Adriana Lima to Jennifer Lopez — who have bodies we’d basically kill to have, and who work hard to get them. Maybe seeing them jog, lift weights and strut their assets will inspire you to get off the couch. Or you might just want to sit back and enjoy the view while munching on a turkey leg. That’s the kind of freedom those pilgrims came here to attain, isn’t it?
The stage was set last night at the 2011 Bambi Awards in Wiesbaden, Germany. On one hand we have the blinding column that is Gwyneth Paltrow‘s cleavage, which was lovingly showcased in a glittering, emerald-green Elie Saab gown, slashed down to the navel. This, in our heads, is equivalent to Jennifer Lopez wearing that dress to the 2000 Grammys. Gwynnie, who’s normally so genteel and Goop-y, threw us for a loop with all that sequins and skin.
We also have Lady Gaga wearing what looks like scrap fabric from Bjork‘s swan dress, topped with something Charlize Theron could totally rock in Snow White and the Huntsman. And then Gaga and Karl Lagerfeld met up onstage and the whole place imploded from excessive fierceness. This is also after Gwyneth presented Justin Bieber with an award, causing the auditorium to implode from excessive fame. And Justin was this close to imploding because he was at eye level with GP’s decolletage. As you can tell, there was a lot of imploding going on at the Bambi Awards.
