Red Carpet Rundown: A Fashion Disaster Dystopia At The 2013 Billboard Music Awards

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 »

The Coming One Direction War

The Coming One Direction War

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.
