Earlier this week, we admitted that we didn’t despise neon as much as we once did–because its popularity has petered out in a big since its peak ubiquity in 2012.
…But, while searching for examples of successful neon looks–many of which we found!–we also came across all the ones that made us fear and loath it in the first place. Fergie, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha and more ahead. More
The world was recently gifted a new accidentally disturbing celebrity cake: the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has been immortalized in frosting and fondant and… the results were predictably creepy. As these things often are.
This got us thinking: what other fashion icons have been made into cakes? And how creepy were the results?
The answer: many and very. More
There are even accessories involved! More
Celebrities love fashion week. Not just because they get wined and dined, sit front row, skip all the lines and leave loaded down with freebies–but because they get press, for the simple act of wearing clothes. Their outfits don’t have to be inventive, interesting or even stylish–if they’re famous and anywhere within a stone’s throw of Linc Center or Milk, they’ll get photographed. For dayz.
And we’ll contribute to the problem! More
This weekend, Heidi Klum Instagrammed a naked photo of herself–her most recent in a string of partially nude photos the model shares across her various social media accounts. This inspired us to go in search of some of Instagram’s other famous exhibitionists–after sifting through the accounts of dozens of celebrities on the photo sharing app (and irreparably torching many brain cells), we learned some startling truths–Audrina Patridge‘s feed isn’t remotely the bikini extravaganza you’d expect–and some less startling ones, like who belongs at the top of the list… More
Paper magazine’s editorial director Mickey Boardman had a lot to say in his recent piece for BuzzFeed Fashion’s “How I Made It in Fashion” series. Namely, names. Lots of names. A few examples: Nicki Minaj, Lindsay Lohan, Ben Stiller and more… More
Last night saw the 2013 BET Awards–featuring a host entertainers in a wide variety of looks. Strangely, the prevailing colors of the night were black and white (by far), with attendees largely rejecting Spring palettes and prints in favor of leather and lace and very strappy shoes. Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Janelle Monae, Brandy, Ashanti (!) and way more ahead… More
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
Every year, the Oscars occur and every year so does the glitzy Elton John Oscars party (officially, the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party). Celebrity attendees wore sparkly, fancy, loaned designer dresses and included Heidi Klum, Nina Dobrev, Nicki Minaj and… Chris Brown. More
The important thing to remember is that you will not be able to escape the coming civil war – there are no safe and neutral hidey-holes in which the cowardly can huddle together and take pathetic refuge. You will have to choose, and choose quickly.
What began as a series of playful jabs on Twitter quickly escalated to a brutal street battle that claimed the lives of Zayn Malik and Max George. More
If there’s anything the Internet has taught me, it’s that very few celebrities can shut their mouths in response to criticism.
Also: Is it weird that the most perplexing part of this debacle to me is that American Idol still exists? More
The 2012 American Music Awards, otherwise known as the AMAs, were held last night and… if an awards show takes place in a vaccum and nobody’s around to witness it, did it really happen? We don’t know. But attendees sure as hell tried to make us remember the red carpet.
Despite a mostly bleak guest list, red carpet fashion was a thrill. A cheap, dirty, illicit thrill. Here’s Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Ke$ha, Justin Bieber, Pink, PSY and many more in an impressive collection of very bad things… More
Nicki Minaj has a new perfume out, and you know what that means: as with all celebrity perfumes, she was contractually obligated to make a mystical, magical, nonsensical commercial. So she did, Nicki style. To be honest, I think Nicki kind of phoned it in on this one (what, no monsters or cartoon Goth scenery?), maybe because Lady Gaga already made a crazy cinematic perfume ad and she didn’t want to be accused of copying her. But Nicki at 5 is as good as most people at 11, so let’s do her the honor of figuring out what the heck is going on here. More
