Why Do All Famous Women Dress The Same? (Regarding All Those Sparkly Golden Globes Dresses)

Every time Hollywood hosts a big awards show, The Gloss‘ intrepid deputy editor Ashley Cardiff whines about how everything looks the same. EIC Jennifer Wright, however, loves when everyone looks all classically pretty and romantic and soft.

Here, they discuss the omnipresence of Ashley’s much despised Sparkly Neutral Gown, especially among the many Golden Globes dresses. And they wonder, what does it mean to be well dressed on the red carpet? More »

Gallery: Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried And The Rest Of The Les Miserables Cast Appear As Their Characters In Vogue

Do you enjoy musicals, period garb, and seeing how much skinnier an already-thin starlet can get if she eats only oatmeal paste squares? Then you’ll love the December issue of Vogue, which features some gorgeous pictures Annie Leibovitz shot on set of the hotly anticipated Les Miserables movie.

Great Expectations Trailer Showdown

Great Expectations Trailer Showdown

Look, I’d go see Great Expectations if it was being performed in Aramaic by sock puppets, that’s how much I love it. But, that said, I am a pretty big fan of Alfonso Cuarón’s 1998 adaptation, starring Ethan Hawke and a big eyed Gwyneth Paltrow kissing in the rain and dancing and Anne Bancroft. Especially Anne Bancroft. Anne Bancroft is her own thing, like dancing in the rain. I also think that Great Expectations is, curiously, one of Dicken’s more modern, accessible novels, so it was a really good one to update. Though I think Great Expectations would make a great sic-fi adaptation with a clone army, but that is beside the point.

That said, I love, love, love Helena Bonham Carter so I’m excited to see how she’ll do in the upcoming version. Really, I think she’s the kind of person who was born to play Miss Havisham. And while the upcoming version is set in the past that means it will have historical costumes. I’m going to show the trailers for both. You tell me which version looks better. This is all on you, now: More »
