While the 2011 Oscars red carpet was ruled by graceful, grand gowns, a few ladies did try to break out of the mold. Gwyneth Paltrow‘s golden Calvin Klein number stood out both in shape and style (though Gwyneth wore the Michael Kors gown from her Country Strong number at the afterparty) , while Nicole Kidman‘s Christian Dior looked like she’d gone MacGyver on a tablecloth, with unflattering fabric bunching up on the hips. What do you think?

How gorgeous did everyone look at the massive Vanity Fair Oscar party at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood! We had already seen the likes of winners Natalie Portman and Colin Firth at the show, but plenty of other celebrities, who we hadn’t necessarily focussed on, came out to play. And one couple who got adorably frisky together were Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, who held hands and were quite cozy through out. Can we also say Selena rocked it in a gorgeous red Dolce & Gabbana gown? Sure it’s grown up, but Ms Gomez pulled it off admirably especially with the Biebs accessorizing her arm! She also was cutesy with pal Taylor Swift who sparkled (as usual) in a strapless gold beaded Zuhair Murad mini dress.
Gwyneth Paltrow also changed out of her Oscar gown into the Michael Kors number she wore to perform onstage, and posed with buddy Cameron Diaz. The latter’s legs went on for miles in a flirty short-short Carolina Herrera. Other couples included Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel who wore sexy Versace, and Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin who looked great in a red Monique Lhuillier dress.

Welcome to The Daily Hot – our round-up of the sexiest pics and stories on the interwebs. Today’s steaming pile of hotness:
If anyone can heal the world with a quick text message, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow. Seems that Glee‘s most famous guest star has brokered peace between the show and it’s most hated enemy, the Kings Of Leon, and she did it all with a few taps on her iPhone. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Paltrow got Ryan Murphy and the members of Kings Of Leon to apologize for all their various jabs at one another via text message, and the official word from all parties is that “it’s all good now.” That sounds like something you’d expect to hear if The People’s Court was presided over by Matthew McConaughey, isn’t it? “Are you guys both still mad? No? S’all good now.”
To refresh your memory, Murphy was vocal about his anger toward the group for not allowing their songs to be used on Glee, and in response, drummer Nathan Followill Tweeted that Murphy should get therapy and buy a new bra, which came off as homophobic, to say the least. But now, finally we can rest easy knowing that Paltrow The Negotiator has healed this gaping pop culture wound. We’re going to assume she was also behind Glee‘s reconciliation with Lindsay Lohan, and that she’s currently hard at work convincing Jay-Z and Beyonce to stay together too. (Man, we don’t even want to joke about those two breaking up. It just can’t happen.) This is all proof once again that there is nothing Gwyneth can’t do.

While cheering on Best Album of the Year winner Arcade Fire at last night’s Grammy Awards, it seems Gwyneth Paltrow could have used some support of her own. We can guess why the dude sitting behind her kept mum, but why didn’t her BFF Beyonce whisper to give her dress a tug? Apparently the inner layer of her otherwise sheer lace mini hiked up as she rocked out, revealing what could easily be the least embarrassing arse in Hollywood. In fact, if we worked so hard on keeping our bums taut and tiny, we probably would have skipped the nude slip altogether. Take a closer look at Gwyneth’s wardrobe malfunction below.

This year’s Grammy Awards were very good to Lady Antebellum and Arcade Fire (winners of Song/Record of the Year and Album Of The Year, respectively). They were not, however, quite as good to the ten people that you’ll see below. Whereas the likes of Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez scored high in our gallery of the Top 15 Sexiest Grammy Awards outfits, we had some reservations about some of the fashion choices made by Lady Gaga, Kate Hudson, Cee Lo Green, Lenny Kravitz and more this evening. Sure, some of these outfits weren’t meant to be taken seriously (hi Cee Lo!), but they still had us scratching our heads and asking ourselves, “WTF?!?”

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t care what you think. Or rather, she cares what you think, but doesn’t really. Unless it’s nice. Or something. Anyway, the point is that Gwyneth knows people hate her newsletter GOOP—but she’s not going to stop anytime soon. “Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK. That’s totally fine. I don’t care. I don’t read any of it. My thing with GOOP has always been, if you don’t like it, then don’t log onto it.” See, our thing has been, if you don’t like it, write about it and read something hilarious about it—you know, contribute to the discussion! But we can agree to disagree.
Shockingly, Paltrow almost considered just taking her wisdom and going home. “Here were a couple of times when I thought, ‘I’m just gonna stop doing it. People are so mean to me. I don’t want to do it.’ But then I was like, ‘Who cares what some lame person out there says?’ I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, ‘I had the best time in Nashville because of GOOP.’ And that is so worth it to me.” It wasn’t Silvio Berlusconi, was it? Bet it was.

If Gwyneth Paltrow can’t enter a car gracefully while wearing a short dress, then no one can. One lucky paparazzo got themselves a glimpse at Gwynnie’s panties before she zoomed off from the Mayfair Hotel in London to Take That singer Gary Barlow‘s birthday party. While we’re far too bashful to share the goods up top, the uncensored photo appears in the gallery below, you dirty little perv.
And in case you’re feeling guilty, maitre d’ turned tell-all author Abbe Diaz says Gwyneth has a “passive-aggressive comportment,” when she’s out in public, “meant to unnerve the plebeians.” That should help.
Gwyneth Paltrow is scheduled to host Saturday Night Live this weekend. Not surprising, since she’s got to keep promoting Country Strong, and she’s also planning to perform a much-anticipated duet with Cee-Lo Green of “F— You” a.k.a. “Forget You.” Only problem is, Paltrow is currently stuck in London as a result of the crazy East Coast weather we’re having. The cast had to film this week’s promos without her, but we’re wondering what’s actually going to happen with the episode itself. Sure, most of the time the hosts just read off of cue cards, but they can’t just throw Gwyneth in there with just a couple days of rehearsal under her belt, can they? Are they Skyping their rehearsals, perhaps?
We still love the show, so we’re not going to make any snide remarks about how it would suck no matter how much or little they prepare, but we will say that even if she only rehearsed for an hour, it would be impossible for Gwyneth to be any worse than the all-time worst host, January Jones.

Country Strong is the female Crazy Heart: a once-successful country crooner hits the bottle, destroys relationships and then sings their way to redemption. But from what we can gather from the Country Strong trailer, that film is more about the pressures of success and fame and competing with Leighton Meester than Crazy Heart was. The film’s writer and director, Shana Feste, says that she based Gwyneth Paltrow‘s substance-abusing country star on Britney Spears and Michael Jackson, whose death occurred as she was finishing her screenplay.
Feste says, “We build these artists and celebrate them, then at the first sign of weakness, we rally around their downfall. Then we want to build them back up for a comeback. How difficult to live life like that in public.” She drew from real-life performers in order to “present these characters as messy, complicated and conflicted.” And despite drawing from Britney’s life, there’s no sign of Kevin Federline anywhere in Country Strong, unfortunately. Country Strong is in theaters tomorrow.
