Anyone familiar with The Gloss‘ fashion coverage knows our opinion of music awards show red carpets: they are uniformly the worst.
…The thing about last night’s 2013 Billboard Music Awards? They were a different dimension of the worst. Every look was a jumble of ill-conceived ideas and bad planning.
Get ready for a few glorious pages of horrible to sublimely ridiculous red carpet moments, all in one place. Happy Monday! More
This weekend saw the annual the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, DC. The big news? Michelle Obama wore an uncharacteristically sexy Monique Lhuillier dress (unfortunately, no one seemed to get a decent photo of it).
However, they did get decent photos of attendees who walked the red carpet and, although we’re a day late, here’s what they wore… More
Nashville star Hayden Panettiere lands the cover of Glamour‘s May issue–looking quite lovely, we might add. The actress is a jumble of Spring-appropriate trends–namely, the omnipresent bra-top/crop-top, colorful stripes and her bold pink lip with minimal makeup (and visible freckles!).
Also visible is her infamous text tattoo–vivere senza rimipianti, a misspelling of vivere senza rimpianti–which came up during her chat with Glamour. More
I’ve always liked Hayden Panettiere. She’s a decent actress, she seems to work hard, and she cares about saving the dolphins. She’s also never forced me to blog about her attention-mongering antics, which I appreciate. Hence, it is with a heavy heart that I say the styling in her latest magazine spread leaves something to be desired. I don’t know if it’s the cycle that fashion is entering right now (with the late ’90s being the next logical step, ugh) or the fact that she plays a country singer on Nashville, but they put her in some seriously questionable things here. That said, she obviously still looks pretty and the first image is cool enough (above), so it’s not a total loss. See if you agree. More
Some kind of major sporting event occurred this weekend and celebrities came out of the woodwork for various sponsored parties. Apparently in observance of an event called the Super Bowl, a bunch of large companies threw lavish parties with expansive gifting suites, luring out the likes of Candice Swanepoel, Kate Upton, Sofia Vergara, Olivia Munn, Hayden Panettiere, Ashley Greene and more in their tightest, brightest and shortest.

The 2012 Teen Choice Awards went down last night and now we must bring you all the short skirts, skintight dresses, bright patches and fashion disasters. All the usual suspects–Taylor Swift, Zooey Deschanel, Lea Michelle, Gwen Stefani, Zoe Saldana, Hayden Panettiere, Nina Dobrev–and more ahead.
Professional athletes really only get one big rep carpet a year, so it makes sense that they brought their A-game. (Yes, I’m going to make bad puns like this the whole post. You’ll have to grin and bear it.) More
Yes, in an amusing turn of events, Terry Richardson actually ripped off the facile edginess of Tyler Shields, the man who built a career on ripping off the facile edginess of Terry Richardson! It’s like a douchebag Ouroboros! More
Vanity Fair’s August cover features former lovely redhead Emma Stone revealing her (reportedly) natural blondeness in a retro bathing suit-clad pin-up pose. You know who else posed as a pin-up once? Fucking everybody. Here’s, like, 1000 of them. More

It’s not that the red carpet fashion at the TriBeCa Film Festival was bad, it just seemed a bit… confused. Muddled. With events like this, no one seems to know if you should dress way up (it’s a red carpet event! for a film festival!) or way down (but it has a veneer of indie authenticity!) or, still more unfocused… be Paz de la Huerta. So here are the gowns, the minis and otherwise. More
Is the Neutrogena endorsement becoming the Chunky’s Soup of beauty campaigns? Most of the fresh-faced starlets who have appeared in Neutrogena’s skincare commercials have ended up with fizzling careers. More
Over the weekend a friend introduced me to her new boyfriend. He’s a personal trainer and does some modeling on the side. He mentioned that he’s featured on the box and appears on the infomercial for some “ab-blasting machine.” He … More
