Bonnie Wright Is The Latest Star To Chop Her Hair, Check Out 20 Others Who Went Short In 2012

Bonnie Wright chops off her trademark long hair

Harry Potter starlet Bonnie Wright showed up at Jo Malone’s Thoroughly Proper Party in London on Wednesday lacking her long flowing locks. After years of being linked to her character Ginny Weasley with trademark titan tresses, maybe she followed in the footsteps of Emma Watson, who famously cropped her hair as soon as the series ended to get some distance from the franchise. Or she’s just hopping on the short hair band wagon!

It seems like ever A-lister has gotten the urge to hack of the hair this year. Some like Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron and Evangeline Lilly went super short for film roles, whereas former American Idol singer Kellie Pickler got a buzz to support her friend being treated for cancer. And then there are music mama’s like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys who went short just for the hell of it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 20 lovely ladies who took the hair plunge in 2012!

Zoe Saldana Continues To Catch Hell For Her Role As Nina Simone

Zoe Saldana Nina Simone Controversy

Zoe Saldana may be in over her head with the lead role as Nina Simone in the biopic, Nina. The casting of Zoe was immediately met with side-eyes and constructive criticism. Cynthia Mort, director and writer of the film, was called out by Nina’s daughter for not consulting her or the family to make sure Nina’s legacy was depicted accurately. The controversy spun into an even bigger debacle when pictures of Zoe on set in black face with an afro wig hit the ‘net. And it ain’t pretty. Read more…

Beautiful Creatures Trailer: 10 Reasons To Get Excited For The Southern Gothic Teen Flick

Alden Ehrenreich as Ethan in Beautiful Creatures

Since, oh, about January 2010, some of us have been waiting not-so-patiently to see Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s Beautiful Creatures translated to the big screen. The story of the teen girl with magical powers, who fears that the forces of darkness will claim her when she turns 16, and the boy who’s telepathically connected to her for some mysterious reason piqued our imaginations instantly. And the Caster Chronicles’ small-town Southern setting was certainly ripe for a Hollywood adaptation. Last night, we finally got a good hard look at how this is all coming together in the movie, set to hit theaters February 2013 with a teaser trailer. If you haven’t yet been sucked into the books, the trailer alone gives us 10 good reasons to get excited for this movie:

1. Alden Ehrenreich as Ethan Wate

Broody, handsome — but not too conventionally so — and managing that Southern drawl with grace, Ehrenreich seems to be handling the male lead quite nicely here. Ethan has his world turned upside down by Lena’s arrival, and that’ll be a lot for this up-and-comer to handle over the course of the franchise.

2. Alice Englert as Lena Duchannes

Lena’s got a lot more on her shoulders than the hardship of being the new girl at school. She’s a powerful Caster (a sort of witch, for the sake of simplicity), and when she turns 16, she’ll be claimed by forces of light or the forces for dark.

3. All sorts of spooky magic


Between Lena’s freaky telekinetic skills, the telepathy linking her and Ethan and the overarching mythology surrounding the Casters and the town of Gatlin, this movie has plenty to please you Harry Potter/Matilda/Possession fans.

25 Pictures Of Beyonce, Willow Smith, Elizabeth Banks And More Embracing The Summer Brights Trend

25 Pictures Of 2012 Summer Brights Trend

If there’s one trend we’ve been spotting taking over red carpets in 2012 alone, it’s been the juicy summer brights look. We’ve been happy to see every shade of orange and yellow seep onto a variety of silhouettes over the year, from the very start of January. The Oscars, the Met Ball, the Golden Globes and the big premieres — hello, The Hunger Games — all had these shades represented by actresses who are not afraid to embrace the bright side. The Met Ball alone really took care of this huge trend with a number of actresses choosing orange like Kristen Bell and Emma Roberts. Solange Knowles and January Jones really took care of the yellow spectrum. Some celebrities have been more courageous than others, wearing brights on numerous occasions. Like, Viola Davis, Nicole Richie and Elizabeth Banks. Each of those lovely ladies is represented in our exhaustive gallery of 25 pictures below. This collection comprises our favorite looks — all worn this year, from January onwards — which are all either orange or yellow, keeping the trend in mind. You’ll also see where exactly they were worn, in case you want to do a little digging on your own. Knock yourselves out on these punchy shades and tell us whose design you liked best!
