Surely you have been looking at the recently posted July Vogue cover of Helena Bonham Carter and thinking “Jesus God, they did not even let her keep her own chin.” But not me! I’ve been thinking, “Why would I want to keep my own chin?” I’ve thought up some facial features I want photoshopped on my inevitable Vogue cover. More

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
Now, we’d like to level the playing field and just focus on the shoulders up. Last night, there was some really amazing hair and makeup on the red carpet–and some not amazing hair and makeup. This is our rundown of the best and worst of the Golden Globes beauty. More
The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards are nigh. Yes, Hollywood’s second biggest dog and pony show is coming to your living room at 8:00 PM eastern standard time and, starting now, The Gloss will be your one stop shop for the much-scrutinized Golden Globe Awards red carpet. We’ll be updating this post with all the pretty, pretty dresses (and hopefully lots of ugly ones to keep it interesting) over the next couple hours. More
The People’s Chocie Awards were last night after many long months of people choosing. Sam already provided the necessary red carpet coverage but editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff would like to focus on the most “talked about” dress of the evening: the snow white Ralph Lauren ”revenge dress” as worn by Taylor Swift. We have so many feelings! More
The much-anticipated (thanks to Anne Hathaway‘s many ladymag rounds, in which she discussed her crash diet tirelessly) Les Miserables saw its world premiere in London last night, and all its fancy, fancy stars turned out. Sadly, it was not a high point for fashion.
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. Lookin’ good, guys! And, as this is a musical about history, it’s bound to be educational as well as fun to watch. For instance, did you know that 19th century French peasants were all really ridiculously good looking? The more you know. More
A new trailer for Les Miserables is out! And it’s not just a very, very slim Anne Hathaway singing “I Dreamed A Dream!” Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried are all also singing! But most importantly… More
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
Happy birthday, Helena Bonham Carter! More
Helena Bonham Carter stepped out for the London premiere of Dark Shadows last night and you know what that means: she dressed like a crazy person. More
Let’s all look at Helena Bonham Carter’s hair. More
The BAFTAs–the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (awards) if you’re nasty–were held yesterday. For those stateside who don’t cover international red carpets, it’s the British equivalent of the Academy Awards. Which is why Meryl Streep was there! Also in attendance: Michelle Williams, Penelope Cruz, Christina Hendricks, Tilda Swinton and more. Fashion-wise, it was all a very staid affair, but much better than the Grammys.
