Last night saw the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards–the prosaically named ceremony has come to be regarded as the “first necessary stop” on the awards season campaign trail. Thus, it drew out quite an impressive flock of A-Listers and Oscar hopefuls: check out Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Viola Davis and more on the red carpet. More

This weekend, the London Film Festival closed with a glittery red carpet in honor of Saving Mr Banks. The film focuses on Walt Disney‘s attempts to procure the rights to Mary Poppins as well as the childhood of Poppins author P.L. Travers–and it stars Tom Hanks (as Disney!) and Emma Thompson (as Travers). Their combined star power lured out some very shiny dresses and at least one pair of bizarre shoes. More
The seventh annual Golden Heart Awards took place last night–the gala is a fundraiser hosted by God’s Love We Deliver, which brings nutritious meals to people who are incapable of shopping or preparing food for themselves. The woman of honor at last night’s ceremony just so happened to be Hillary Rodham Clinton and the guest list was a staggering mix of A-list models–Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Iman–and regular old A-Listers–Anna Wintour, Michael Kors, Hillary Swank… Also, the looks were pretty great!
Here’s what they wore. More
Olivia Wilde, Amy Adams and Rooney Mara all showed up for the presentation of Her, along with costar and progressive Gargamel impersonator Joaquin Phoenix. But did any of them even get invited to the same event? More
Well, finally: after what feels like one hundred years (but has actually only been a few months and hundreds upon hundreds of blog posts), Bangerz has arrived.
Yes, the album that announces once and for all that Miley Cyrus is no longer Hannah Montana is here. Everything is different now; Cyrus raps about MDMA, wears a monokini, poses for Terry Richardson and absolutely, positively cannot be tamed (for real this time). More
The Pride of Britain Awards, per Wikipedia, is an annual event in the United Kingdom honouring (see what we did there?) British people who have acted bravely or extraordinarily in challenging situations. Which is to say, it’s a red carpet awards ceremony that isn’t just a bunch of spoiled famous people! …Weird.
…Also weird: apparently 1 out of every 3 famous British people are TV hosts/presenters. That’s like if Hollywood was one third Giuliana Rancics! More
They did a remake of Carrie–no, unfortunately we still have to wait for a screen adaptation of the horror classic’s infamously dreadful musical (we’d settle for a novelization of that, though). The new version stars Julianne Moore, Chloë Grace Moretz and probably some high school aged people also. We love gritty reboots of things, so we hope it’s a gritty reboot.
Anyway, here’s what they wore on the red carpet at last night’s premiere in LA. More
Call them what you will: cutout dresses, sheer panel dresses, lace panel dresses, illusion dresses. The goal of them all is largely the same: to remind any and all viewers that the wearer of said dress is extremely naked underneath it. More
It seems the entire ladmag-reading world agrees that Emily Ratajkowski is the Next Big Thing–but how exactly will success manifest for the breakout star of the “Blurred Lines” video? Will she defy condescending chatter from fashion people* and wind up like Kate Upton, on the cover of every magazine? Or will she descend into obscurity after a failed acting career or a string of bad endorsement deals? More
Last night saw the 11th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party with Emporio Armani–which, judging by the last names of the attendees–could just as easily be called Teen Vogue, Some Young Actors And A Bunch Of Famous Peoples’ Kids Wore Armani.
The red carpet was dominated by bold prints, metallics, massive necklaces and graphic color combinations–see the youthful exuberance ahead! More
Katy Perry is currently riding high: she’s got a sure-to-be massive new album, Prism; a successful debut single off said album (“Roar”) and a new signature fragrance because if you throw enough money at a person, they’ll gamely memorize some copy about how they were really “involved” in making a product they have zero experience or expertise making.
But! She is also Katy Perry, which means she will do all of this stuff–release the album, launch the single, say some lines about how she was there for every step of the decision making process–in costume. More
The fashion crowd has been calling for a Mischa Barton “comeback” for years now. Setting aside the issue of what it would mean for “someone from The OC who walked some red carpets sometimes” to make a comeback, let’s all be interested and amused by the fact that Barton popped up earlier this week looking more polished than she has in a while. More
Wow, last night’s Emmys ceremony was a tricky red carpet to judge. By which we mean, looks for the most part were your typical awards show turf (big, bold and boring) but the rest of them were interesting in all the wrong ways (weird bodices, strange appliqués, super exaggerated flounces) (but we’ll get to that)–leaving us with a somewhat motley crew of occasionally very beautiful winners, some of which are a little odd. Let’s take a look. More
