The 2013 Brit Awards happened yesterday and attracted a bunch of big stars–Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake… uh… Lana Del Rey? She’s famous for the internet.
Well, here are the attendees we recognized, along with a few we didn’t (in strikingly hideous dresses). More
Remember when we used to do those Celebrities We Irrationaly Hate features? Jen wrote one on Paz de la Huerta, Jamie wrote one on Lana Del Rey, and there was a bit of feather ruffling over one about Alexa Chung. We stopped doing them because… it’s shitty. It’s probably constructive to avoid writing 2000 word screeds about hating someone you’ve never met.
But. We all want to write one about Taylor Swift, right? More
Let’s just take a moment and watch Taylor Swift‘s 2013 Grammys performance, and sort of take a second to just take it all in, and then recoil, a little bit. More
As we previously whined, coming up with a Best Dressed list from last night’s Grammys ceremony was like squeezing water from a goddamn stone.
Which brings us to the embarrassment of riches that is constructing a Worst Dressed list. We couldn’t even keep it to the standard ten! The 2013 Grammy Awards had to be one of the ugliest red carpets in recent memory… and ugly in so, so many ways.
So, E! does this seemingly deeply uncomfortable thing called the “Mani Cam” at the Grammys where they get celebrities to put their hands into a little box and run their fingers up and down, as if their fingers were tiny ballerinas. It’s to show off their nail polish. Some people are actually really good at it! Some celebrities fling their hands in there and then withdraw them as though they have been burnt. Here are pictures of the celeb manicures, which I captured by squatting in front of my television. More
Taylor Swift is working on getting her real estate license.
Demi Lovato bought her dad the latest book in the Last Lion series for Christmas because her dad is a big Churchill fan.
Sam Elliott anonymously manages three separate parody Twitter accounts.
Every time Chris Rock travels, he leaves a copy of Rumours behind for the next guest, just in case they don’t have a copy.
Paz de la Huerta has never been to a Waffle House. More
You know shit hasn’t gotten a wee bit out of hand when you can’t call your ex a bitch, without someone throwing a fit. Think about all the things you’ve called your exes — does bitch even come close to the slurs and accusations that have rolled off your tongue? More
Which is it: should we all leave T. Swift alone or should her lovelife be fair game for hyucks? More
What does it mean when even Marty McFly doesn’t want you near his son? More
Today’s New York Times has an article about “The Karlie,” a “trend” that was born, as many things are, after 20-year-old model Karlie Kloss jokingly referred to her new haircut as such and a bunch of people took her seriously. Yours truly was even said to find the haircut “inspiring” because I once wrote “now that I see it on Karlie, I have the sudden feeling that it would make me look like a goddess.” The full paragraph, if you recall, was a bit different in tone than what that single sentence might lead you to believe: More
Got an ex you hate? Apparently, vindictive fashion is all the rage. 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
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
I realize that this title makes it sound like I want to date Taylor Swift. I do not. More
