Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence Lead Our First Annual Awards Season Style Points Race

Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried

Awards season got into full swing this week, and we here at VH1 Celebrity were thinking that these talented actors and actresses weren’t competing against each other in enough contests. So we devised a little race of our own based on something we’re calling Style Points. Our panel of fashion experts — our own Sabrina Rojas Weiss and Ambika Muttoo, plus Breanne Heldman, New York bureau chief at Yahoo! Entertainment, and MTV Style associate editor Maud Deitch — will be grading eight key celebs after their major red carpet appearances (on a scale of -5 to +5). Who are these lucky stars? Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper and Eddie Redmayne — basically, the actors we expect to wow us from now through the Oscars. We’ll track their rankings and at the end of all this madness, declare the most stylish star in all the land on February 25! To kick this all off, we decided to grade two outfits from each contestant.

Maud: +1
Ambika: +4
Breanne: +2
Sabrina: +2
Average: 2.5

“Major points for the lady-suit, but big big deductions for the early 2000′s emo hair,” Maud says, but Ambika disagrees. “This androgynous, yet romantic Saint Laurent Spring 2013 tuxedo fits her like a dream and really complements her edgy short hair.” Sabrina hearts the ruffled cuffs.

The 6 Best-Dressed Ladies At The Critics Choice Movie Awards Pack A Real Punch

Best-Dressed Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Now that the worst-dressed list is out of the way, time to rejoice in our happy, best-dressed roll-call from yesterday’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. It’s a small list, but packed with heaps of flavor. To begin with, we’re clapping our hands with joy at Anne Hathaway‘s minimal, shimmery, Oscar de la Renta gown. That smile, the cropped hair and the perfectly creamy makeup are the right accompaniments proving that sometimes, less is definitely more. Another absolute favorite is Marion Cotillard‘s frothy, applique Zuhair Murad Couture dress that is girly, fun and hit that line between playful and fashion forward. The Jimmy Choo “Tahi” heels have us squeeing too. Marion’s got serious style chops! Jennifer Lawrence‘s Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 gown brought grown-up glamor and drama to the carpet. The draping, the dual-fabric and the train are fantastic features and don’t overwhelm her, and the Chopard jewels, Jimmy Choo ‘Vamp’ sandals and a Roger Vivier clutch add the right amount of hardware. Naomi Watts was sexy as hell in a black strapless Emilio Pucci Resort 2013  gown with a sheer key-hole with turquoise Irene Neuwirth jewels and a silver Edie Parker clutch that provided the right hits of color and metal. Jaime King gave a Naomi a run for her sexy money in a strappy Jason Wu Pre-Fall ’13 semi-sheer gown with flashes of gold accessories and a black belt cinching her tiny waist. The side-swept curls and red lips are happily noted, as well. Rounding off the list is a surprise entrant — Helen Hunt. We bow down to her in that red Philip Armstrong Atelier column gown with those crystal and lace panelled cut-outs. Perfectly styled, and impeccably turned out with a hit of gold accessories — gold Rene Caovilla sandals, Martin Katz jewelry and a Lauren Merkin ‘Lucca’ clutch.

Handicapping actresses for the 2013 Oscars

We’re back again, folks! Earlier today we brought you the breakdown for the actors nominated for the 2013 Academy Awards, and now we’ve returned to do the same thing for the actresses! There are so many incredibly talented ladies up for the award this year, it’s hard to know who to place your bets on for your inevitable Oscar Betting Pool. So we’ve tried to make it a little easier for you and “handicapped” each of the actresses to help you make your picks!

Best Actresses

Jessica Chastain: Maya in Zero Dark Thirty

Why She Has A Good Shot: Chastain provided a strong emotional anchor amid the violence, terrorism and controversy in a film that chronicles the search for Osama Bin Laden.

What Might Get In Her Way: Geez, we heard that the Academy tends to respect dramas over comedies, but this sounds a little intense.

Jennifer Lawrence: Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook

Why She Has A Good Shot: Sure it’s a great movie and an awesome performance, but in our minds this is a nomination for blowing box offices sky-high with Hunger Games.

What Might Get In Her Way: President Snow.

Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Katy Perry & 10 Other Fab Onstage Looks At The People’s Choice Awards

10 Onstage And backstage Looks From 2013 People's Choice Awards

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.

Of Course Sam Claflin’s Finnick Is Hot Enough On The EW Cover. Has The Whole World Gone Insane?

Sam Claflin, Jennifer Lawrence On EW Catching Fire Cover

Well, we see everyone remembered to take their crazy pills this morning. What other explanation can there be for the rampant debate on Twitter and Tumblr over whether Sam Claflin is hot enough to be Hunger Games contender Finnick Odair, following the release of Entertainment Weekly‘s new Catching Fire cover. First of all, you can’t base a character or performer’s hotness on one photo. You have to look at all the evidence. Was Sam Claflin hot on the Catching Fire set in September? Yes. Was he hot leaping into the water while wearing a skin-tight wetsuit? Double yes. And if you have to base someone’s hotness on one photo, why not base it on EW’s inside photo of Katniss and Finnick? Are you looking at it now? Alright, alright.

So why are people doubting Claflin’s ability to pull off a character who is supposed to be hotness incarnate? If you ask us, it’s because both stars are clearly suffering from a case of Heinous Wig Syndrome (HWS), a terrible disease that also befell the Twilight casts during the last four movies of their franchise. Admit it: even Jennifer Lawrence looks less than amazing on this cover. Maybe those are special cinematic wigs that just don’t take to the close shots and heavy Photoshop of magazine photography. We don’t know; we never finished our Masters in Wig Studies. But keep the faith, everybody. We suspect Sam Claflin will have you furiously shipping Katniss/Finnick in no time. Seriously, did you look at that second photo? Humina.

Christina Milian Flaunts Her Bikini Bod On Twitter, Makes An Early Bid To Be The Hottest Twitpic Of 2013

Christina Milian posts bikini twitpic

2013 is only a week old, but Christina Milian is already making a stab at earning the “Hottest Twitpic of The Year” honor! The multi-talented star shared her new years resolution to get in shape along side by super sizzlin’ swimsuit photo. “This will be my body by spring! You ready?!” she captioned the apparently vintage snap, posted in honor of Throw Back Thursday. But time definitely diminish its hotness, that’s for sure! “I’m determined to have this body back,” she assured her followers. Although we have to say, we’ve seen some recent bikini photos of Christina lately, and she still looks pretty much just like that. Head on down to the gallery of her photos two-piece photos below and you’ll see what we mean! Maybe her new years resolution should be to easy up on herself a little bit, huh? Can someone get her Jennifer Lawrence’s number? Maybe they can coach each other through it.

“Uneducated”? “Chubby”? Jennifer Lawrence’s 2013 Resolution Should Be To Ease Up On Herself

Vanity Fair Jennifer Lawrence Cover

We don’t know what our problem is today. Normally we love Jennifer Lawrence‘s brutally honest, self-deprecating sense of humor. Maybe it’s just having been around our families for the holidays, but JLaw’s recent comments to Vanity Fair and South Africa Marie Claire make us want to wrap her in a Slanket  and feed her delicious soups while watching our Christmas DVDs. In addition to calling herself “vastly uneducated,” the Catching Fire star told Vanity Fair “There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.” While we all agree medicine and firefighting are pretty much the most important jobs in society, give yourself some credit, Jennifer! You already have an Oscar nomination. How “uneducated” can you be? How meaningless your life goals?

Maybe we’re just still feeling sensitive about Jennifer’s comments to South Africa Marie Claire last week. “I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life,” Lawrence said about her weight. Whaaaaa? JLaw? Chubby? Is there literally no way to stop Hollywood from brainwashing people into thinking they are overweight? Even when those people are literally paragons of physical perfection?

Jennifer Lawrence Was On Fire In So Many Ways: Our #2 Celeb Who Dominated 2012

Jennifer Lawrence is No. 2 on our celebs who dominated 2012 list

On our list of 12 Celebs Who Dominated 2012, we’ve had stars who earned heaps of critical praise for their work; who garnered awards nods left and right; who found massive followings of fans; and who graced the covers of our favorite magazines in fashions high and low — but very few have done all of the above the way Jennifer Lawrence did. She started off the year as the star of  a highly anticipated franchise aimed at teen girls, The Hunger Games, and she’s finishing as an awards-show favorite for her very grown-up role in Silver Linings Playbook. Along the way, she’s charmed us with her self-deprecating interviews the way Katniss never quite could for Caesar Flickerman.

Dominating Moment: As the Girl Who Was on Fire, Lawrence drew a whole lot more than teen girls to the theaters to watch her battle other kids to the death in The Hunger Games. The movie had the biggest ever opening weekend for March, and went on to rank as the third biggest movie of the year, behind behemoths The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. She also managed to follow that up with a little horror flick, House at the End of the Street, and a heartbreakingly funny role as the widow helping Bradley Cooper get his life back on track through ballroom dancing in Silver Linings Playbook, earning herself a Golden Globe nod.

Rihanna, Gaga, Kim K. & More: Our Ranking Of The 20 Top Fashion Disasters Of 2012

Top 20 Celebrity Fashion Disasters In 2012

Let’s face it, we’ve all seen a couple of real fashion doozies this year. Whether they were at any one of the major award ceremonies, premieres or just disasters spotted on the street, our celebrities have made some grade-A worst-dressed choices in 2012. As always, as we look back at it all, we thought we would compile said bad sartorial decisions into one big, bad list. A top 20, to be precise. We’ve also compiled the looks in a gallery for you to pore through. We’re going to break it down for you from number 20 right up to numero uno. Feel free to let us know if you agree with the list, and if we missed anyone.

View Photo Gallery

20. Jennifer Lawrence: We’re so sad that Jennifer is on this list, but her blue, swirl-printed, boob-squishing, shiny Viktor & Rolf dress worn at the People’s Choice Awards gave us a headache.

19. Jessica Chastain: Jessica Chastain is such a beautiful woman but this Prabal Gurung dress, worn at the CFDA Fashion Awards was anything but fashionable on her. It also completely washed her out.

18. Elle Fanning: She may be young, but she’s a total fashionista. So when Elle wore this random Prada mess with those strange platforms by the same brand, to the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 premiere in L.A. it broke our hearts.

17. Nelly Furtado: The brand of the dress was right — Alberta Ferretti — but the fit was all wrong, as was the crochet, on Nelly Furtado at the Billboard Music Awards.

16. Kourtney Kardashian: A TURBAN? Seriously, Kourtney?

15. LeAnn Rimes: This is one of our least favorite Stella McCartney designs ever, and LeAnn didn’t make it any better by pairing them with those grey shoes at the America Country Music Awards.

14. Chloe Sevigny: This Miu Miu dress worn to the Met Ball felt like a fashion experiment gone wrong.

13. Lindsay Lohan: Too much blush, way fake hair extensions, a cheap-looking satin gown, diamond cut-out with red tear-drops … oh, Lindsay. She could have done so much better to the premiere of Liz & Dick.

12. Katy Perry: This neon green ensemble that Katy wore to the Kids Choice Awards looks like something Kermit threw up.

11. Jessica Szohr: Leopard-print headband? High-tops? Bodysuit? It’s a mash-up of fashion decade trends gone wrong on Jessica at the MTV Video Music Awards.

10. Rita Ora: Rita’s Emilio Pucci jumpsuit worn at the MTV Video Music Awards physically assaulted our eyes.  Read more…

From Snakes On A Plane To Gigli: The Least Award-Worthy Roles Of The 2013 Golden Globe Nominees

The least awards-worthy roles for 2013 Golden Globes nominees

The nominees for the 2013 Golden Globes were announced bright and early this morning, and the list didn’t feature a ton of surprises. Perhaps the most surprising part is that these men and women have all kept truckin’ with their acting careers despite having made some hilariously bad role choices in the past. Congrats guys, you’re an illustration of the enduring human spirit! Or maybe you all just got better agents…

To be fair, folks like Leonardo DiCaprio, Helen Hunt and Joaquin Phoenix when they made their turkeys, so they didn’t know any better. But not everyone in this list has that excuse! Ben Affleck might have a GG nod for best director with Argo, but it still doesn’t excuse the fact that he helped bring Gigli to life. And why have we all forgotten that The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies was in Snakes On A Plane, or that Alec Baldwin appeared as Mr. Conductor in the children’s train movie Thomas And The Magic Track? It’s pretty priceless!

Let’s dive deep into the IMDB page of these acclaimed thespians and pull out some truly amazing forgotten films. It’s like cinematic naked baby photos! And always remember: You too can still rise to the top, even if you’ve made a movie as bad as She-Devil.
