Where can you see Emma Watson go full on bad girl? Who gave Claire Danes a kiss at the Time 100 Gala last night? And how did Tilda Swinton bring the joy to the now deceased Roger Ebert‘s Film Festival? All this in today’s First Dibs.
Which television actor is Madonna‘s teen daughter dating? Why is Jeremy Irons against gay marriage? Need yet another reason to watch the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on April 14? How about three? All this in today’s First Dibs.
The Grammys are usually a night to dig deep into your wardrobe and bust out your very best for the cameras! Well, apparently some peeps didn’t get that part of the memo. While many A-listers strutted their stuff on the red carpet in their high fashion finery, there were folks who appeared to have lost a bet or something.
Before we say anything about the lovely actresses who attended the Directors Guild Of America Awards on Saturday night in Hollywood, we want to proclaim our love for Quvenzhane Wallis, who blows everyone else out of the water. This 9-year-old has so much style and personality that she floors us. Check her out in her custom-made David Meister hot-pink satin frock. And that bulldog bag. Best-dressed, for sure. Almost looking as good as Miss Q was Jennifer Garner, who’s really upping it in the style stakes these days. She looked lovely in a pure white Antonio Berardi Resort 2013 fitted dress, complemented with Cartier jewelry and a silver Ferragamo clutch and pumps of the same color and same brand. Berenice Bejo was slinky in a black and gold sequined, drop-waist Pre-Fall 2013 Louis Vuitton look. Her clutch and sandals were by LV too, and everything was tied together by her blood-red matte lipstick and side-swept curls.
Lena Dunham wore a custom, color-blocked, strapless Thakoon frock that would have been awesome (we love hot pink and orange together) had the fit been better. The back also had a sash which was on its way to becoming this cool obi-like, belt detailing. We wish they had committed to that and gone all the way. Because it all ended up looking a bit sloppy and we would’ve yanked her dress up all night, had we have been around her. Anne Hathaway wore a look we adored: a baroque-patterned Valentino Fall 2012 Couture dress that looked so fresh, yet edgy, yet feminine on her that we’re almost barfing with “Love me, Valentino, Love, me!” How adorable is her hair getting too? Do we wish she had worn something better than the Casedei heels she had on? Sure. But we don’t need to look at her feet because the face and dress make us happy. Have a look at the gallery to see the looks in full and to check out who else was there.

Oh, celebrities: they’re just like us! Well, maybe not the whole “random people on the internet want them to perish in a fire” part. Joked Lena Dunham on The Daily Show, “You definitely do get the sense that some 58-year-olds wish you dead.” The Girls show creator stopped by last night to discuss her Golden Globes win, and how she cannot stop herself from reading the mean things people say about her online. “I like to say I don’t read anything. That’s my token line, ‘Oh, I don’t read anything,’ but if I’m being honest I read a quarter of things,” Dunham admits. Considering how much buzz has surrounded Girls for the past year, “a quarter of things” could easily translate into “more of the Internet than anyone can read without going completely insane.”
We’re excited to see what comes out of the new friendship between Howard Stern and Lena Dunham. After all, they love the same things: nudity, jokes, nudity, um, listening to themselves talk? We obviously love listening to them talk to, which is why we are emotional invested in the Girls creator’s visit to the Howard Stern Show today. After Lena repeated Stern’s description of her as a “little fat chick” on Letterman last Friday, Stern apologized for his choice of words. Today, he sooooort of stuck by that when Dunham came in for an interview. “I realize: not only am I addicted, but I totally get you. I’m in love with you and your character,” Stern said of Girls, before adding “It’s not about apologizing, although I want to say I’m a fan of yours … I love you and I think you’re terrific.” We know plenty of little terrific fat girls that we love, so we completely understand where Howard Stern is coming from!
Fortunately Dunham is not the kind of person who gets easily upset. (Of course she isn’t. Have you seen the mean things people write about her on the Internet?) “I’m not super thin, but I’m thin for, like, Detroit,” she quipped, to which Howard replied that she’s not “obese or anything.” Luckily for Stern, Lena took it in stride. “I appreciate it and I appreciate your effort to rectify [this], but whether you’d done that or not, I’d have remained a [Howard Stern] enthusiast,” Dunham replied. Either way, we have enough Lena Dunham love to overrde a million “fat girl” comments.
If you’ve been following the saga of Howard Stern and Lena Dunham since last week, you might be a little seasick with all the ups and downs their public words have taken — from insult to mock offense to love fest. To recap, Stern commented on Dunham’s frequent nudity on Girls, calling her “a little fat girl who kinda looks like Jonah Hill, and she keeps taking her clothes off, and it kind of feels like rape. … I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she’s such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on. … Good for her. It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything going.”
When the writer/producer/star visited Letterman on Thursday night, she said she kind of loved his comment. “I want my gravestone to say, ‘She was a little fat chick and she got it going,’ ” she said, adding that she’s a huge Stern fan.
“You wanted this.”
“I wanted this so bad.”
“And now you’re getting it.”
“And now I’m finally getting it.”
“It’s about f***ing time.”
“It’s about f***ing time.”
Lena Dunham had herself a NIGHT last night, didn’t she? Not only did the series that she created, Girls, win the Golden Globe for Best Television Series: Musical or Comedy, but Dunham herself upset the likes of Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus to take home the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series: Musical or Comedy. As momentous as those victories were, perhaps her most triumphant moment of the night came before the opening credits of the Season 2 premiere of Girls on HBO even rolled. We’re referring directly to the image and the dialogue above, in which a naked Lena Dunham is getting down with a naked Donald Glover, giving a not-at-all-subtle “Eff you” to all the critics who blasted her last season for an alleged lack of racial diversity on her show.
This is the part we hate about any awards show. In this case, we’re obviously talking about last night’s Golden Globes, of which a truly stellar best-dressed list has already been published by us. But didn’t really want to call this a worst-dressed list, because the women we’re enumerating are too gorgeous to be worst-anything. We’re just a tad disappointed in their outfits because we expect so much more from them. Like Taylor Swift, for instance. While her brown Donna Karan Atelier gown is quite nice, it’s nothing to write home about. Also wearing brown, was Lena Dunham, but we find her Zac Posen a bit prom-ish on her. Moving on to the orange bracket, perhaps the biggest disappointment is our girl crush Marion Cotillard. We have such high expectations of her. And while the color of her Christian Dior Couture dress is punchy, it doesn’t grab us. Nor does the lacklustre hair. No amount of her Frenchitude can convince us of otherwise. Also, wearing orange was Zooey Deschanel in an Oscar de la Renta ball-gown with pearls around her neck. It’s the same old, same old, basically. We need her to shake things up. Besides, is it just us, or does her outfit look … droopy? The lone pastel is provided by Julianne Hough‘s frothy Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2013 gown which looks like it has gold confetti strewn over it. Someone needs to tell Julianne that she isn’t, in fact, a Disney Princess.
On to our three blues. Rosario Dawson and Jessica Chastain wore the same icy shade. But the peplum on Rosario’s version, in pictures, made the very slim actress look rather wide. Not flattering at all. Jessica’s Calvin Klein wasn’t flattering either. The fit, especially around the bodice looked clumsy. The third blue on the least is more a teal, provided by Julie Bowen. Her one-shouldered, Halston gown looked like a bolt of fabric that had been tacked on her. We love the armful of bracelets, though. Rounding up the list are the two black dresses. The semi-sheer Louis Vuitton gown on Rachel Weisz is just — the less said the better. She still has Daniel Craig as a husband so it doesn’t matter what she wears. And then, lastly, we have Kristen Wiig in Michael Kors. Too simple? Too — those cut-outs have us iffy. Better luck next time, all!

The biggest nail biter of the night wasn’t waiting to find out who would take home the Golden Globe for Best Actress or Best Picture. No, it was watching Jodie Foster’s acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award, honoring her incredible 47-year acting career. Seriously, her time on stage had us on the edge of our seat as she flirted with dropping some pretty big bomb shells. Did she just come out officially? Did she just retire from acting? Let us break it down for you.
She first got our attention by teasing us with a big announcement. ”I had a sudden urge to say something that I have never really been able to air in public, a declaration that I’m a little nervous about. But I’m just going to put it out there, loud and proud. So, I’m going to need your support on this.” Watching at home, we immediately told everyone around the couch to shut up. We were so certain that she was going to at last officially acknowlege her sexuality and come out as a lesbian in public for the first time. It would have defintely been a landmark moment in GG’s history, but her actual admission was a little different. “I am…single. Yes, I am. I am single.”
