Nicholas Hoult Promotes His New Movie, Might Not Be My Friend Anymore

Nicholas Hoult Gifs!
We love him in an uncomfortable way. Read More »

I know it’s going to be a good day when there are brand new Nicholas Hoult photos on the internet, ripe for me to get pervy about! Here he is, looking all godly and stuff alongside his “Jack The Giant Slayer” costars Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor. I have to be honest with you, though: I might have a bone to pick with my beloved. His recent ex Jennifer Lawrence was in London over the weekend for the BAFTAs, which Nicholas also attended. We were hoping Jen was headed for a secret Hoult tryst when she arrived at Heathrow Airport incognito, but instead she was photographed crying as she left a restaurant alone Friday night. You see, I just cannot get behind anyone making lovely Jennifer Lawrence cry for any reason, and if Nicholas here had something to do with it, well… I might just have to hunt him down. God, that would be awful, wouldn’t it? Just terrible. Truly. He’s so ugly.

"'The Hunger Games' -- isn't that your life story?"

The esteemed celebrity talk show “Between Two Ferns,” hosted by my boyfriend Zach Galifianakis, has at long last returned from an agonizing nine-month hiatus (did Zach have a baby or something?). Better yet, it’s back with a special Oscars edition, featuring interviews with Academy Award nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway, and Amy Adams. Hathaway’s performance is groan-worthy, to say the very least, but if you’ve ever wanted to hear The Impossible Naomi Watts talk about diarrhea, now’s your chance! Also, I don’t know if it’s the pneumonia or what, but Jennifer Lawrence has, like, the sexiest voice of all time. I would like to borrow her vocal cords. Weird! Anyway, get ready to shudder with secondhand awkwardness! [Gawker]

  • It was only a matter of time before Allison Williams landed herself a beauty contract. British import Simple skincare, which offers products formulated for sensitive skin, has tapped the “Girls” star and Ridiculously Pretty Person as their first American spokesmodel. Allison may not play squeaky-clean on the show, but she’s definitely got the kind of fresh face that’ll look great getting water splashed on it in 30-second TV clips! [People Style Watch]
  • Do you skip the advised “patch test” every time you use a new product? Uh, yeah, me too, but now that I’ve seen what an allergic reaction to boxed hair dye looks like, I’m second-guessing my devil-may-care habits in a big way. [Gawker]
  • Following in the well-heeled footsteps of other models-cum-designers like Cindy Crawford and Elle Macpherson, Alessandra Ambrosio is making the transition from clothes-wearer to clothes-maker with a new lifestyle empire called Alé. The brand will offer a variety of accessibly-priced wares channeling Alessandra’s personal style.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: amFAR New York Gala 2013

Each season, New York Fashion Week kicks off with the American Foundation for AIDS Research (better known as amfAR) Gala. This year’s party was a little bit different, because while the guest list always reads like a who’s who of fashion big shots, supermodels, and stylish starlets, that generally doesn’t include Lindsay Lohan. Hmmmmm. Check out what Lindsay and 10 other famous faces wore in the gallery above!

Sometimes I think to myself in French...

Here’s a confession for the books: despite my fondness for all things fashion, I hate to watch “fashion films.” It’s not because they aren’t aesthetically lovely (they are) or because I don’t want to know about the latest, hippest song that will be on everyone’s iPods come Fashion Week (I might). Honestly, these kinds of videos just sort of make me feel bad about myself — they invariably star some ethereal, flower-sniffing, French-speaking manic pixie dream girl whose lean, coltish thighs do not touch under any circumstances, wearing gorgeous clothes that look absolutely incredible on her and that I could afford only in my dreams. It’s all so wildly unrealistic — and, yes, aspirational — that it makes me want to laugh, right after I finish crying about my tragically unglamorous life.

Vena Cava, the quirky cool-girl line beloved by celebrities and edgy downtown darlings alike, figured out the formula for creating a truly unique fashion film unlike any other, and it includes a strong dose of tongue-in-cheek humor. Entitled “Fashion Film,” the video pokes fun at the kind of ad campaign that makes you want to cash in your closet for an Anthropologie catalogue and a Francoise Hardy record — and who better to star in the irreverent, subtly hilarious clip than the similarly irreverent, subtly hilarious Lizzy Caplan? “Fashion Film” is totally spot-on, and it’s reassuring to know that there’s one brand out there that doesn’t take itself soooooooo seriously.

Adam Levine Launches Eponymous Fragrance Line, Boldly Compares Himself To Tom Ford

Say what you will about him, but Adam Levine has always given me a crippling case of the skeeves. I know I am in the minority because even my mom thinks he’s sexy, and her idea of a sex symbol is, like, Gregory Peck. Also, he totally serial-dates Victoria’s Secret models with a rapidity rivaled only by Leonardo DiCaprio, so what in the world is wrong with me that every time I land on “The Voice” while channel-surfing, or hear him crooning “Payphone” on the radio, my visceral reaction is to reach for the hand sanitizer?

Anyway, here’s what’s weird: the Maroon 5 frontman is breaking into the fragrance biz for the first time, and it seems to me like Adam is feeling out a new frontier, not just “another bullshit celebrity fragrance.” In fact, he told WWD that he “wanted to do something understated and elegant,” like Tom Ford would do. Adam Levine dropped Tom Ford’s name in reference to his own eponymous line of fragrances. Color me attentive, because that takes balls. The “masterbrand,” which includes both men’s and women’s fragrances, launches at Macy’s this month, and for what it’s worth, the bottles look like microphones. Will you be taking a whiff of Adam’s “woody floral” women’s scent any time soon? [Us Magazine]
