Every year, there are a few actors who break out in a big way. (Think: Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids.) The actress immediately turned her supporting role into several big hits at the box office. And then there are actors like Isla Fisher, who made a big splash in Wedding Crashers, but failed to become a stand out on her own. We love her, we support her, but we want more for her. She and the nine other names on this list are those break out stars that we wish had bigger careers.
In this weekend’s new film Now You See Me, Isla Fisher plays a bewitching stage magician and altruistic con woman. The part probably came easily to Isla considering she’s been casting spells off screen for years.
Does Isla Fisher think women can have it all? Why is writer Bret Easton Ellis mad at GLAAD? And how did LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian show their love for each other on their second anniversary? Read more…
While goth was a major trend at the Golden Globes last night, another major direction that the fashion was inclined towards was the diametrically opposite — pastels. Shimmering nudes, pretty neutrals, and creamy white were all spotted on stars providing a wonderful foil to the ever-prevelant black. Leading this brigade was Amy Adams in a romantic nude Marchesa gown with a tulle fishtail complete with Tiffany & Co. jewelery. Isla Fisher also chose a nude palette but sparkled thanks to beaded embroidery that was sewn all over her love Reem Acra gown. Amanda Seyfried was another highlight in a shell, flowing, lace-panelled Givenchy Couture custom-made gown which had us sold. Megan Fox nailed it, as well, in a blush-colored, strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewelery and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch. Bringing in the sexy were, who else, but Jennifer Lopez and Lea Michele. J.Lo worked it like a pro, pouring her curves in a nude Zuhair Murad long-sleeved gown covered in ivory lace overlay. Lea went her regular route by showing off some leg, but still looked quite lovely in a white, halter-necked, textured Elie Saab gown and bag paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giambattista Valli heels. Heidi Klum also showed off some major stems in a one-shouldered white Alexandre Vauthier gown with gold, embellished trim.
Adding little washes of pastel color were Kelly Osbourne and Nicole Richie. Kelly chose a mint green, fishtail Zac Posen gown that somehow, ended up working with her lavender hair. She buffed up her outfit with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Judith Leiber bag and Jacob & Co jewels. Nicole, on the other hand, was elegant in an vintage-looking, old-Hollywood inspired, pale blue and white Naeem Khan gown. She even worked in pale blue eyeshadow — how’s that for retro? Check out all our looks compiled in the gallery below and tell us who got the thumbs-up.
It’s here, it’s here! Les Miserables finally premiered yesterday Odeon Leicester Square in London. As expected, both Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried chose outre designs that we’re not quite sure about. What do you think of Anne’s white satin Givenchy Spring 2012 Couture gown? We love the draped back and the beading but the billowing sleeves leave us a bit cold. Amanda was the yang to Anne’s yin picking a jet-black Balenciaga Spring 2013 look. It’s aggressively ruffled, in our opinion, although the white piping is a nice touch. We have serious follicle envy, though, because her hair looks incredibly lush. And Anne’s crop is totally working for her now that it’s grown out a tad. The premiere afterparty was held at the Camden Roundhouse, and the two actresses made a quick change for the do.
Anne is wearing an Altuzarra top and skirt which we’re totally digging. Even though she looks completely teeny in it. Like, ridiculously tiny. But so elegant, right? Amanda picked leather pants and a gorgeous bottle-green cape that looks chic, yet weather appropriate. But, what of Isla Fisher, you say? Where does she fit in, in this whole thing? Well, we saved the best for last because Ms. Fisher wore a white Willow Spring 2013 gown which almost caused our eyeballs to pop out. Because the whole thing — plunging bodice doesn’t even begin to describe it — looks like it’s held up by a prayer. Take a look for yourselves, by all means. Read more…
When we saw pictures of Michael Cera in the set of the Bluth family model home last month, we nearly blue ourselves. Now we have even more exciting news to pass on about the new series of Arrested Development coming to Netflix next year. According to Zap2It,Bachelorette star Isla Fisher and ex-footballer/current Newsroom actor Terry Crews are reportedly joining the cast, along with the usual suspects like Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Portia De Rossi. Their roles haven’t been announced yet, but we’re still pretty pumped. Will Terry be the Bluth family’s personal linebacker? Will Isla invite her husband Sacha Baron Cohen on the show? A guest spot by Borat would definitely be something! Or maybe the British beauty will play the lovely Rita Leed’s friend. Charlize Theron says she’d definitely be down for it, and so would we! Check out the gallery below to see what’s new with your favorite Arrested Development cast members these days.
Two premieres went down last night and both happened in L.A. The first was Ashley Greene‘s new film, The Apparition, which rolled its red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. We’re loving the color of Ashley’s strapless, raspberry Donna Karen Atelier gown. Its complements her new lighter ‘do like a dream. What a difference a little gust of wind can make (as you can see in the first and second picture.) A little puff and bam — a whole lot of very toned leg. We love the drape of the cascading ruffle down the side as well. We’re not sure what to make of the nude Jimmy Choo slingbacks, and wish she had picked a more exciting heel. But Ashley looks so glamorous that we’re going to ignore that quibble.
Giving her competition, were Isla Fisher and Kirsten Dunst at the premiere of their movie, Bachelorette, at the ArcLight in Hollywood. Let’s start with Isla (the third photograph) whose red, lace-overlay Reem Acra Resort 2013 dress is plain stunning. Especially that deep-V neckline. It’s at once sexy and demure. She opted for nude satin Sergio Rossi pumps, which we don’t mind, but wish she had chosen a strappier heel instead. But again, that dress, with that hair, makeup and smile get a big thumbs up from us. Kirsten was the most bohemian of the lot wearing a turquoise Jean Paul Gaultier Resort 2013 maxi, belted at waist, ruffled at the bodice with cute over-sized buttons lining the torso. We’re not sure about the belt, but love the color on her. The mussed hair and rose lipstick works for us too. She accessorized this look with Chloe’s “Elsie” bag, a Jennifer Mayer gold pendent necklace and a Rolex watch. All three actresses pulled off completely different looks and while we’re leaning towards Isla’s more, we’d like to know who you favor?
The new trailer for Kristen Dunst‘s wedding comedy Bachelorette is out, and it looks flawless. It also looks very, very familiar. A pack of friends who must grapple with jealousy, gentlemen and Jell-O shots before eventually realizing the only thing that really matters is friendship? Sign us up…again! Really, now that we think about it, Bachelorette is basically the bachelorette party scene we never got to see in Bridesmaids, blown out into full-length movie form. A stroke of genius, is what we’re saying. Of course, we noticed a few other elements present in both films, specifically…
Remember when Aaliyah sang “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number”? Well, these celebrity couples of past and present are intent on showing us that the same thing goes for height. From basketball stars towering over their significant others to models and their shorter male counterparts, these couples prove that size does not matter. Although some have moved on while others are still going strong, these stars seem to know how to make it work when it comes to a vertical challenge. Here is a list of 25 celebrity couples, ranked in order of their height differential, that leave us scratching our heads, thinking “How do they do that?”
Well, lookie here. It’s Isla Fisher and Kirsten Dunst staggering down the streets of New York. Right outside Score’s Gentlemen’s Club, in fact. And they look TRASHED. Fortunately, or unfortunately — we’re not sure which yet — it’s all for a scene from their film, Bachelorette, which also stars Lizzy Caplan! This one’s going to be a hoot although this particular scene — not so much. Apparently it ends with some very drunken throwing up, the pictures of which we will spare you of. Part of us wishes this was real though, and that Isla and Kirsten were BFF’ing it up on a crazy girls night. But since Isla’s a pretty adorable mom, it doesn’t seem likely that she’d go on papp’d shennanigans with Kiki. But hey, we have celluloid for that!
