Last night, the Olivier Awards took place in London to celebrate excellence in professional theater. As one might expect, an awards show that rewards performers for merit onstage (as opposed to, say, “Best Shirtless Performance”) attracts a more dressed-up crowd with generally lovely style — not a whole lot of cutout dresses or Wonka suits here. As a result, the red carpet was just so much less offensive than usual.
But then…Helen Mirren. Helen Mirren, Helen Mirren, Helen Mirren. More
For the past week, the TriBeCa Film Festival has been going strong — and that includes its red carpet. Since famous people love getting themselves all sorts of dressed up for any event they will likely be photographed at, the festival’s red carpet held plenty of lovely, weird and fantastic looks. Naturally, there are a couple rather awful ones, but we’ll let you judge that for yourself… More
Zac Posen has seriously gone and designed a dress made out of real, honest-to-god 24-karat gold, and it’s every bit as vampy and shiny as you’d expect. More
How hot is Rosario Dawson? Very hot? Or stupid hot? More
The beautiful Emilia Clarke stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, presumably to pimp the latest season of Game of Thrones (which the entire western TV-watching world suddenly likes, in unison). We’re sure they talked about Daenerys Targaryen’s story line and what to expect this season and how the dragons are going to be just fine and we don’t need to worry about it and all that, but we don’t know because we can never get past the photos. Yes, Emilia Clarke is ridiculously good-looking.
…Even when she’s a little bit washed out. More
It feels more than appropriate that a Victoria’s Secret angel would take a dress with sheer panels on the side and determine it still needed side and underboob. More
That moment you’ve all (maybe) been waiting for is nearly upon us. No, I don’t mean Game of Thrones, silly – I’m talking about season 6 of Mad Men. But before us normal people get a chance to see the show, there was a snazzy red carpet premiere over at the DGA Theater in Los Angeles because television people like to do those, too.
As one might have guessed, everybody looked sufficiently classed up in that people who are in Mad Men are expected to. However, it seems as though they may have caught the same “tastefully boring” disease that Ashley revealed of the Game of Thrones red carpet. More
Spring Breakers is a film about young women on spring break, so everybody was forced to wear bikinis to the premiere no matter what. Just kidding, I think everybody just looked kind of all right, with a few exceptions. More
Oscar winner Halle Berry stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night to talk about… what she wore to the Oscars and get skeeved on by Jay Leno. She also wore the boob-est Reem Acra dress ever. More
Whenever the pop cultural landscape gets so horrible such that it seems almost unreal, it’s nice to be reminded of purely awesome people like Tilda Swinton. More
This week we have a very special episode of News For Bitches, taped live during last night’s Oscars red carpet coverage. More
One of the most important red carpet of the year is upon us: the Grammy Awards. The music industry’s biggest night will feature plenty of huge artists performing, self-congratulatory recipient speeches and, of course, plenty of fashion. Since we all know how much you love to see celebrities wearing gorgeous, ridiculous and occasionally terrible styles, we here at The Gloss will be giving you tons of looks live from the 55th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Just as we did for the SAG Awards two weeks ago, this list will be updated through the evening, so keep checking back for more looks in the next couple of hours! More
A moment of silence for J. Lo’s Versace dress. 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
