Demi Lovato, Amber Rose & More: We Count Down The 20 Best Celebrity Nails Of 2012

Over the past year nail art has reached new heights of popularity among celebrities — and regular people too. Stars usually step out on the red carpet with a fresh manicure, but of late, nails have stopped being merely an accessory and have evolved into a focal point. Zooey Deschanel kicked off the year with adorable tuxedo nails at the 2012 Golden Globes and Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Rihanna and Amber Rose have followed suit, stepping up the style on their digits and, for our benefit, documenting their creativity on Instagram and Twitter along the way.

Browse through our gallery and tell us which celebs hit the nail(s) on the head in 2012.

New Girl Fashion Cap “Santa”: And The Greatest Gift Of All Was That Baller Blue Peacoat

Between the amazing sequined belt on that excellent white party dress, Schmidt’s lap dance skills and Zooey D breaking it down carol-style, tonight’s ep of New Girl was the best White Anglo-Saxon Winter Privilege Night gift a person could ask for! While we’re sort of peeved they never made it to the Gorilla Twin’s annual thump-thump (is that like a kiki for bros, maybe?), we’re glad we got to spent the night riding along with the gang, like a little cranberry trapped inside Winston’s ear canal:

New Girl Fashion Cap “Bathtub”: Of Summer Suits And Bowls Of Hair

We love that this week’s New Girl episode was basically a love letter to Schmidt’s beautiful suits, what with their slim lines and emaciated ties. It goes without saying that said suits are destroyed in a bathtub accident, but we’re sure Schmidt will be back in his former sartorial glory soon. He spent all that time on his Suit Folder, after all! This way he just has to replace every…single…item…

New Girl Fashion Cap “Halloween”: Zooey Deschanel Is Zombie Woody Allen

After seeing last night’s New Girl, we can all agree on one thing: Zooey Deschanel dressed as a zombie is probably the cutest thing of all time. (Other than Schmidt dressed as Matthew McConaughey in Magic Mike, of course.) Jess should have just eaten Sam’s brain after *spoiler alert* he turns her down for an actual date (we were genuinely bummed out!), but at least we got an awesome episode filled with amazing costumes first. Not that any could hold a blood-covered candle to Jess’s, of course…

New Girl Fashion Cap “Models”: Promising Ballerinas & Monkey Crackers

New Girls Models Recap

New Girl reached a new height of adorableness last night with an ep that focused primarily on Jess and CeCe’s sweet lady friendship, though we did have to deal with the absurdity of a world where Zooey Deschanel is considering ridiculous compared to models. Let’s be honest: Zooey Deschanel is straight-up one of the hottest ladies on the planet. Don’t believe us? Please check out the outfit she wore out the club last night. Please.

New Girl Fashion Cap “Neighbors”: Schmidt Tries To Start An Arcade Fire Via Ironic T

New Girl Fashion Recap Neighbors

Are we right in thinking that New Girl just keeps getting better and better every week? Last night’s episode “Neighbors” introduced Jess and the gang to the new, marginally younger crowd that moved into the building: Chaz, Fife, Sutton and Brory. It wasn’t until we saw the new neighbor’s half-shirts and florescent sweatshirts that we realized how good Schmidt, Winston and Jess typically dress. (Nick doesn’t count; he’s a 30-year-old 90-year-old.) Did the new neighbors’ young people fashion looks seem dead-on to you, or did they make you roll your eyes in contempt for the New Girl wardrobe department? Were you rolling your eyes while wearing headphones and a handmade feather clip? Are you one of them?

New Girl Fashion Cap “Re-Launch” & “Katie”: Jess Is Back, Her Wardrobe More Amazing Than Ever

Zooey Deschanel New Girl

Are we the only ones who want to enter the world of Fox’s New Girl and steal Zooey Deschanel‘s entire wardrobe, along with her glasses, hair and/or skin? Or are we the only ones brave enough to admit it? Chew on that, clowns! As of last night, Zooey, her pretty dresses and her roommates are back for a second season, kicking things off with the double-header of “Re-Launch” and “Katie.” So we thought we would give you what you didn’t even know you wanted: a photo recap of Jess’s excellent outfits every week.

Are New Girl’s Nick And Jess The Niles And Daphne Of Our Time? Jake Johnson Weighs In

You should be very excited to watch the Do Something Awards next Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET. Besides the fact that it’s a nice chance to see celebrities celebrated for more than just who they’re dating or what they starred in, the show is hosted by three of the most charming men on TV these days, New Girl stars Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield and Lamorne Morris. And when VH1 News’ Kate Spencer had a chance to sit down with the guys on recently, she couldn’t resist to make this very astute observation about the will-they-or-won’t-they dynamic of Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Johnson): They are just like Niles and Daphne from Frasier.

David Hyde Pierce and Jane Leeves as Niles and Daphne on Frasier

“Niles and Daphne is a great reference! Yeah, but I think I’m a little bit more masculine than Niles. No disrespect to Niles,” Johnson responded. Though he was quick to add: “Do not compare Zooey Deschanel to Daphne. You can call me Niles.”

Emmy Nominations: Girls, Downton, Zooey And More Make This A Competition We Actually Care About

Zooey Deschanel, Michelle Dockery and Lena Dunham

When we planned this post, before Scandal’s Kerry Washington and a pajama-wearing Jimmy Kimmel announced the 64th Primetime Emmy nominations, we thought we’d make this list short and sweet. Traditionally, this is an awards show that ignores our faves and gives all the kudos to the shows our parents love. But then we got a very pleasant surprise and discovered we actually care about almost all of the nominees. Maybe the Emmy voters are finally getting younger and hipper. Or maybe really good TV is back in a place where everyone can agree on the shows that CAN’T be ignored.

Our longtime obsession Mad Men and new addiction American Horror Story lead the pack with a whopping 17 nominations apiece. Downton Abbey’s got 16 nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series and acting nods for Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Brendan Coyle, Jim Carter, Maggie Smith and Joanne Froggatt. Of course, HBO is a dominating force once again, but we can’t complain when that means Game of Thrones has 11 nods and Girls has five nods — for Outstanding Comedy, writing, directing, casting and, naturally, Lead Actress Lena Dunham. Speaking of girls, New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel and Max Greenfield are nominated. As expected, Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock and Modern Family also have tons of nominations, but we love them just the same.

After last year’s moving speech, Melissa McCarthy has another shot at Lead Comedy Actress (she’s up against Dunham, Deschanel, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Edie Falco and Veep’s Julia Louis-Dreyfuss). We’re also excited about another of other favorite ladies: Connie Britton for American Horror Story. Also, Blossom is back! Mayim Bialik‘s role on Big Bang Theory earned her a Supporting Actress nod. Among the leading ladies in drama, Dockery is competing with Julianna Margulies, Claire Danes, Kathy Bates, Elisabeth Moss and Glenn Close.

In the male comedy category, there’s one guy we’re rooting for, for the potential hilarity of his acceptance speech alone: Louis C.K.! He’s got to beat big shots like Larry David, Jon Cryer, Jim Parsons, Alec Baldwin and Don Cheadle first, though. If the Earl of Grantham wants to take home a statuette, he’ll have to defeat the likes of Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Michael C. Hall, Jon Hamm and Damian Lewis. We confess, our loyalties are completely divided there.

Check out our gallery of favorite nominees above, and a more complete list below. And let us know which shows you’ll be rooting for when the Emmys air on Sunday, September 23.
