The Marchesa show was always going to be a big draw since it’s such a celebrity favourite. We were hoping for a couple more A-Listers, but hey, Fashion Week’s such a packed schedule that this lot is just fine. Kanye West, check. Kim Kardashian, looking strangely like Big Bird, check! Tyra Banks … check. But hold up. That smizing is really beginning to freak us out. Like … this is something right out of The Exorcist now. That — and her hair. What can we say about her hair? We can’t. We’ll just let you gaze in wonder at the photograph below.
Yeah. That. It is unreal. It goes beyond volume. And it’s as if she’s smizing right at us! How much more perfect could it get? Others present at the show were a ladylike Stacy Keibler, a very excited Sarah Hyland, a casual chic Rachel Roy, a retro-looking Jenna Dewan and Michelle Trachtenberg who looked like her Gossip Girl character, Georgina Sparks in sunglasses. Check them all out in the gallery below. Werk!
Just think: it could have been Michelle Trachtenberg flailing around on that hospital bed with a demon baby rampaging through her insides. Taylor Lautner would have looked so confused! Even more so than usual! Us Weekly reports that the Weeds star spilled the deets yesterday as to how close she got to being Mrs. Edward Cullen. “There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only so few pale girls in Hollywood,” Trachtenberg said. Explained Michelle, “I’ve known [director] Catherine Hardwicke since the movie Thirteen. I was actually supposed to star in that, but I was on Buffy at the time.” Jeez, how many movies do we have to mentally recast you in, girl? All of them? Actually, we’ll just go ahead and start now. Wow, we can really see her in Arachnophobia!
As for why Kristen Stewart ended up snagging the lead in the vampire epic, Michelle shrugged, “I guess schedules never worked out.” Just thinking about a Kristen-less Twilight like being in an less-angsty alternate reality. What if instead of Kristen, it was Michelle who bounded with Rob Pattinson over all those late-night table reads and gluten-free bagels at craft services? What if? What do you think of the alternate casting?
Do not adjust your computer screen! A host of lovely faces turned out in their crazy colorful best last night at the Missoni For Target launch in New York City. The zig-zaggy styles are the trademark of the eccentric Italian designer Ottavio Missoni, who recently inked a deal to create a budget collection for the superstore. Elizabeth Olsen and Camilla Belle strolled into the celebration wearing stripey gowns, while Emma Roberts took a more casual approach in a bright cardigan. Looks like the only dress code for this shindig was “wild”. Other celebs to get ziggy with it include Selita Ebanks, Camila Alvez, Rachel Zoe and more. Check out more of the far out fashion in the gallery below!
Watching her in the audience was her father and her Gossip Girl co-star Michelle Trachtenberg. However the gig went, we have to admit Leighton looked adorable. We love the bangs and the boho (but see-through) white skirt she had on. What do you think of Leighton’s musician avatar? Is this another case of a starlet trying to break into the music industry? Is she only getting gigs because she’s a “celebrity” and has contacts? Or does she have genuine talent and can go places?
There’s a reason why Donald Trump looks so glum in this picture, while John Legend and girlfriend Chrissy Teigen look like they’re having a ball. Celebrities flocked to Washington D.C on Saturday for the White House Correspondent’s Association dinner and as usual the glam factor was pretty high. But the best part of the evening was that Trump was trumped by President Barack Obama and later, by Seth Meyers, who made some pointed jokes at The Donald’s expense in response to the “birther” debate.
Obama cracked some big ones like, “I know he’s taken some flack lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate issue to rest than Donald, and that’s because he can get back to the issues that matter, like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?” Meyers rubbed it in even further with jibes like, “Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic, because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.” Ouch. Donald’s massive ego must’ve taken an even more massive beating!
Now you see why Trump looks dyspeptic, right? But even he can’t deny that the dinner was an amazing success. The ladies looked gorgeous in full-length gowns (except Michelle Trachtenberg who needs to take it easy on the goth lipstick). Mila Kunis, Anna Paquin, America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson and a very pregnant Alyssa Milano hit it out of the ball park. Paula Abdul looked pretty fantastic too—surprise surprise. The men repp’d it with the likes of Ian Somerhalder, Chris Colfer and Chace Crawford looking sharp in their suits. This also happens to be the nightScarlett Johansson and Sean Penn made their hand-holding public. Page Six reports that Scarlett and Sean were all over each other at dinner with a source revealing, “She plopped down in his lap, and they were kissing.” We may not have pictures of their make-out sesh, but we do have plenty of the rest of the stars in all their finery. Check them out in our gallery below.
With Sex And The City 2 less than a success, we’re not surprised Sarah Jessica Parker might to start to fade into the background—it’s not like anyone saw Did You Hear About The Morgans? either. Still, we never could have guessed she’s literally blend in with the scenery at the CFDA Fashion Awards last night, where her psychedelic purple Alexander McQueen dress merged with panels behind her on the carpet. Though SJP was on hand to bid farewell to the McQueen era, SATC2‘s failure (the film lost 60% of its audience the second week, dropping from #2 to #5) suggests she may be leaving along with it.
Among the other stars at Monday’s gala were Dakota Fanning, Naomi Campbell, Rachel Weisz, Brooke Shields, Ed Westwick, Michelle Trachtenberg and the Olsen twins. See what they wore in the gallery below.
Despite what you might think, there were actually men at the Sex And The City 2 premiere in NYC last night—and not just men from the cast or men married to castmembers (hello, Matthew Broderick). For instance, Valentino was there. He’s a dude! Also, Johnny Weir—yes, a male athlete who enjoys Sex And The City! A jock! Howard Stern went along with wife Beth Ostrosky and his daughter (bet he had a great time, totally wasn’t just there to get his ladies on the guest list or anything), and he may well have talked about the film later with other good husbands like Jerry Seinfeld, Donald Trump and George Stephanopoulos, who certainly weren’t gritting their teeth as Sarah Jessica Parker and her pals enjoyed the luxuries of Abu Dhabi.
Despite the obvious cross-gender appeal, women definitely dominated the event, with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Whitney Port, Gabourey Sidibe, Ashanti, Jessica Szohr and many more joining the cast on the red carpet. See what everyone wore in the gallery below.
Where’s the tiara, Emmy Rossum? The Phantom Of The Opera star looked quite the princess at last night’s dance at the American Natural History Museum in NYC, putting her hair in a bun and piling jewelry on top of a low-cut sequined top. Liking the look? Check out the gallery (including guests like Claire Danes, Charlotte Ronson, Michelle Trachtenberg and Ivanka Trump) and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.
Good Housekeeping may be celebrating more than 125 years in the magazine business, but last night’s anniversary party hardly looked like a home for the elderly. Young actresses like Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff, Michelle Trachtenberg and Kristin Bell got glamorous for the NY, joined by older stars like Meryl Streep, Marlee Matlin, Aretha Franklin and Brooke Shields. See the celebrity sewing circle in the gallery below.
Common folk eat up comparisons to their famous look-a-like, but what about celebrities themselves? Via makeup, plastic surgery, and sheer coincidence, duplicates of our beloved stars are running rampant all over Hollywood, or in Lady Gaga‘s case, gracing our currency. Here are 20 of our favorite, unrelated, doppelgangin’ celebs. [Photos: Getty Images]
