The new Diablo Cody/Jason Reitman film, Young Adult, opened to wide release yesterday. The red carpet fashion was surprisingly modest, which seems fitting for a film whose power lies mostly in the small, nuanced moments rather than the sweepingly dramatic ones.
The Margaret Thatcher biopic, The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep as the the former British Prime Minister, premiered in New York last night. The red carpet fashion was solemn and serious, because you know, biopics about famous women in politics are solemn and serious. *Cue eyeroll*
David Fincher's highly-anticipated Girl With the Dragon Tattoo had its world premiere last night in London. With the exception of the film's main stars, Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, the red carpet fashion was a trainwreck. Which I suppose is appropriate, given the film's dark subjects.
Last night, celebs and CNN honored "everyday people who are changing the world" with a "CNN Heroes" tribute. Celebrities honoring everyday people? Unheard of! I thought it was the other way around? If you want to see celebrities distinguishing themselves from "everyday people" by looking refined and elegant on the red…
Last night, celebrities attended the UNICEF ball in their finest ball gowns. It turns out, sometimes a simple dress in a solid color is all a gal needs to look fabulous, and that's just what most of these celebrities did last night.
The Hollywood Reporter hosted a "power breakfast" on Tuesday. The morning light gave everyone a glow and made even the most terrible dresses look a little bit angelic. Turns out celebrities dress far more sharply for a power breakfast than they do a power lunch.
The 2012 Pirelli calendar was unveiled last night in New York. To celebrate an Italian tire company's annual celebration of naked, impossibly beautiful, famous people, a black tie dinner was held, and the glitterati were invited. Most of the guests opted for dramatic, sleek gowns in bold colors, which—surprise,…
Well, it's that time of the year again—namely, when the Hollywood Holiday-Themed Romantic Comedy Ensemble Movie Industrial Complex tries to convince us that we should go see Zac Efron and Michelle Pfeiffer star in New Year's Eve. Um, no thanks? Anyway, the premiere happened last night in LA. The fashion was mostly…
The stars of our boob tubes and silver screens got gussied up last night in LA for the Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBT youth. As for the red carpet? It was...interesting.
The BAFTA Britannia Awards were held in Los Angeles last night. (As an aside: Is there also like an American Academy of Film and Television Arts Americana Awards ceremony that is held once a year in London? No.) Helen Mirren AND Helena Bonham Carter showed up, and we are pleased.
Er, blue carpet. Whatever. Anyhow: UNICEF held their annual Snowflake Ball last night in New York. For the most part, the ball gowns were either glitzy or safe, with a few standouts and a few WTFs.
Last night, Gotham's Independent Film Awards were held in New York City. Indie film stars—for the most part—came dressed in quirky ensembles. On second thought, I may have to amend that statement, seeing as Tilda was there, and calling her fashion sensibility "quirky" is like calling Picasso "artsy."
Sienna Miller was in Paris over the weekend, hosting a party for French label Lancel, who was celebrating "135 Years of French Légèreté." Damn, that is a lot of "lightness" (or "frivolity" depending on your translation) for a culture that is not generally known for its levity. Case in point: most of the women showed…
An extremely bizarre mix of celebrities were on hand last night to hand out awards for the International Emmys. The fashion really ran the gamut—from oddly demure to just odd.
Last night, pop stars and celebrities attended the American Music Awards in LA. Trust a music awards ceremony to bring out the big guns, and of course by bringing out the big guns, I mean being praised for dressing in a way that is not socially acceptable anywhere or anytime else, which only makes social convention…
Last night, GQ held a party for their "Men of the Year." A good number of ladies stole the spotlight with their colorful ensembles, although the little black dress had a strong showing as well.
The inimitable Pedro Almodovar was honored last night at New York's Museum of Modern Art. Instead of a red carpet, there was a wall of roses. The clothes were almost as lovely. But, as always, there were a few exceptions and near-misses.
Fashion's glitterati came out last night for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in New York. The style at the event really ran the gamut—there were some fun looks, some severe looks, some risks that paid off, and some that did not.
Last night, Los Angeles' Museum of Contemporary Art held a gala for An Artist's Life: Manifesto, directed by Marina Abramovic — any Hollywood celebs wouldn't be Hollywood celebs if they didn't show up in their best attempts at looking "artsy." If having a stylist and a hair and makeup team for the purpose of creating…
Last night at the Latin Grammys, the stars basically dipped themselves in extravagance and came out the other end, smiling. The boobs were perky, and the asses even perkier. Click through the slideshow if you want to be schooled in the way of the sequin.
