Cate Blanchett is an extremely talented, intelligent woman. ..The Gloss, however, is a fashion and beauty site, which means we have to focus on a very specific aspect of Blanchett’s career–primarily, what she wears on the red carpet. Occasionally, we’re … More
We supposed it started with the Met Gala. Then that L’Officiel cover with Kane West where the couple appeared to be having sex. Now, Kim Kardashian‘s weird, inexplicably effective circling of high fashion’s periphery has brought her to the cover of CR Fashion Book, the fancy collectable high fashion bible from Carine Roitfeld. If this isn’t a sign of
the fashion industry’s shameful lack of originality Kim’s unexpected versatility, nothing is. More
The CFDA Awards went down last night and the big winners were Proenza Schouler (womenswear designer of the year), Phillip Lim (accessories designer of the year) and Suno (Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear). Oh, and everyone who’s famous for their red carpet presence showed up too–Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara, Kerry Washington and a whole slew of models.
Here’s what the very stylish and the very victimized wore to the so-called Oscars of fashion.
Though you may have missed it under all the Arrested Devlopment craziness, Michael Douglas‘ Liberace biopic Behind the Candleabra premiered this weekend, too. Which, as far as we’re concerned, means one thing: a shopping guide with shitloads of glitter, piano prints, statement jewels, pussybows and capes. More

Talk about burying the lede. As a follow up to its Met Ball coverage, Women’s Wear Daily has a series of soundbites from Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy up on its site today. He talks about how pleased he was with how all his looks turned out (including Beyonce‘s, oy), but the interesting part doesn’t come until the end, when he discusses Kim Kardashian. (No, I never thought I would type that sentence.) More
It’s time, everyone. The 2013 Met Gala–or, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, if you’re nasty–is upon us. While we have really, really mixed feelings about this year’s theme–Punk: Chaos to Couture–and we know most of the attendees are nervous about committing (despite our helpful styling suggestions!) this is still the biggest red carpet event of the year. Expect one or two unforgettable looks, lots of playing it safe, some real style, some real glamour and, hopefully, a whole lot of beautiful disasters.
So, per usual, we’ll be updating live throughout the red carpet. Come back and refresh often–expect new looks here every few minutes!
Let’s do this. More
The mermaid-like actress told WWD that she reacted to the offer with a “fuck yeah,” because she’s cool enough to be candid. More
Last night, we liveblogged the MTV Movie Awards red carpet. This morning, we’re sifting through the many outrageous looks and trying to come up with ten that might reasonably be considered best. Granted, being on the best dressed list at an MTV awards show is kind of like being “one of the world’s biggest rodents.” You’re still at an MTV awards show.
…Uh. So! Here are our picks for the best dressed at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. More

Last night, Elle celebrated Women in Music with a big party at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. Attendees included famous women in music along with famous women in fashion and then some not terribly famous women. Here’s what they wore. More
Beyoncé is not the first name that comes to mind when one thinks of punk, but she’s been named an honorary chair of this year’s Costume Institute Gala celebrating the Punk: From Chaos to Couture exhibit opening this spring at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. More
If you, like me, found your fashion sense was titillated by the promising looking drawings of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” world tour costumes that Givenchy released last week, get stoked: the storied fashion brand (and skirt-maker to Kanye West) has since released some actual photos of RiRi wearing the stuff, and it’s every bit as resplendent as I’d hoped. Posted yesterday on the Givenchy Facebook page, the outfits are shown in a few different states of layering, and they do a good job of conveying a sort of regal, queen-of-pop attitude. They’re neither as colorful nor as butt-baring as what she wore on her last world tour, but maybe she’s going for a more ladylike vibe? (Ha, ha?) Or maybe we just haven’t seen the more butt-baring looks yet? Either way, I’m into it. More
Emily DiDonato has been a successful model for quite some time but she recently started making inroads toward full on name recognition with the one-two punch of 1) Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition work and 2) apparently striking up a romantic relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.
Since she may be on the verge of supermodel status, let’s take this opportunity to examine DiDonato’s rather impressive career. More
