Much was awkward about ’80s and ’90s style, least of all the trend of big flower hats. Why did we voluntarily leave the house with floral bouquets balanced on our heads?
Sarah Jessica Parker revisits Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment (and pisses off the current residents while doing so), Matthew McConaughey‘s little princess stole the show at the American Cinematheque Awards, Cobie Smulders has a bun in the oven and more First Dibs.
The ’80s were a time of questionable fashion trends. This is a fact. Though many of the looks ended up being recycled (like neon and ripped jeans), there are some that have no business ever seeing the light of day again. One of the worst? Perms. In every incarnation — be it the poodle perm, the body wave, crimped coifs, hair metal manes, Designing Women helmets — the perm was hilarious at best, criminal at worst (seriously, Whitesnake’s David Coverdale deserves a fine).
How will Transformers: Age of Extinction do at the box office? Is Sarah Jessica Parker returning to TV? Did Brody Jenner used to date his brother Brandon‘s wife?
Today marks the 10th anniversary of our beloved Friends series finale. Cue the “I’ll Be There For You” theme song and let all that nostalgia sink in. Sigh. We wish more than anything we would get a reboot about our six favorite Manhattanites, but while we’re in the spirit, let’s celebrate the television remakes and adaptations that did happen. Starting with the ones we couldn’t (and still can’t) get enough of.
Does Sarah Jessica Parker take the subway? Did Prince George meet another famous George this weekend? And MTV News has the most shocking moments from last night’s Game of Thrones.
Some of us are just now starting to consistently feel that springtime weather as we head deep into April. That means we might have to take inventories of our wardrobes before we start putting last year’s gear back into rotation. Sadly, quite a few stars neglected that chore this past week, and the results leave a lot to be desired. So who made this week’s list of worst dressed celebs?
What is it about a show following a foursome of fabulous women that makes it so compulsively watchable? Sex & the City, Designing Women, Girlfriends — the formula has been a proven hit, time after time. To figure out why, we of course have to refer to the OG of female foursome TV: The Golden Girls. Following the lives of sexy seniors raunching it up in a Miami retirement community, the multi-Emmy winner introduced the four archetypes that would be the secret sauce for the success of all it’s imitators: The Witty Everywoman (ie, the leader of the pack), the Innocent (ie, the lovable airhead), the Vixen (ie, the tart who’ll steal your man and giggle about it), and the Realist (ie, the wise-cracking shade-thrower). This combination? Ratings gold.
Female buddy films are the Manolo Mary Jane pumps of Hollywood (i.e., so rare they’re almost nonexistent!). But the best ones — like The Heat, premiering this weekend — portray lady relationships as the complicated, rich, hilarious animals they are. From classics like Thelma & Louise to popcorn fare like Charlie’s Angels, check out our favorite estrogen-soaked casts in history.
Considering we’ve had our fair share of amfAR stories on this blog, we’ve realized it’s the place to really push for fashion. Want to change up your look? This is the place? Want to show off fabulous gowns by the really serious designers? Definitely the space. Yesterday’s amfAR gala, held at Cipriani’s Wall Street in New York, was the ideal space to really class things up, considering it was a party to kick off Fall 2013 edition of Fashion Week. And where there’s fashion, there’s Sarah Jessica Parker. We’re still trying to wrap our heads around her Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2013 Couture gown. We love the texture and the fuchsia but are still trying to “get” the black and white skinny, long scarf. The whole thing seems to be swamping her figure. Heidi Klum, as expected, went the sexy route wearing a plunging, shimmering Michael Kors black gown buffed up with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. The two real surprises were Ashley Greene and Lindsay Lohan. Ashley is stunning but she regularly gets one element of her look wrong. Not this time, we thought she looked like a goddess in her white Giambattista Valli gown with the gold laurel leaf belt. The hair worked. The makeup worked. Everything worked. Then there was Lindsay who wore a sparkly, tasseled Theia Spring 2011 gown. Let’s just ignore her hair for a second, because she looks pretty damn okay, right? The gown’s sexy and her body looks good. This is a huge step forward! Now if only her hair and makeup would follow suit — we’d be happy campers.
