This year’s Academy Awards may be over, and Leo may have gone home without a statue yet again (see #20 for a priceless reaction shot), but that doesn’t mean we can’t spend today reminiscing about how far our little Leo has come. This picture says it all, doesn’t it? And there’s more where that came from: People brilliantly Photoshopped 10 of the Oscar nominees into scenes with their younger selves. Click through to check out Meryl Streep, Jared Leto, Amy Adams and more hanging out with their pre-crazy-famous selves.
Oh hi, are you tired of Oscar fashion yet? Of course not! Vanity Fair‘s annual Oscar party is honestly more of a fashion parade than even the Academy Awards, which only a select group gets to attend, because everyone and their mom and their neighbor and their neighbor’s waxer is invited. I mean, if you didn’t get an invite, you should probably be pretty devastated. Click through to see everyone from Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon and Amy Poehler, to Diane Kruger, Miranda Kerr and Zooey Deschanel, as well as a couple of choice outfit changes from Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lawrence.
Jennifer Lawrence and Lupita Nyong’o fight over Oscar! Matthew and Camilla makeout! John Travolta studies and then retains absolutely no memory of how to pronounce Idina Menzel’s name! All that and more backstage snaps from last night’s Academy Awards…
I gotta say, with the exception of Whoopi Goldberg’s weird interpretation of Julia Roberts’ Golden Globes ensemble, there was not one person at last night’s Academy Awards who made a major fashion faux pas. (See all the red carpet arrival photos here!) I could not assemble a worst dressed list if I tried. Instead, I’ll just tell you which stars left me totally slack-jawed, from Kate Hudson’s drapey, capey situation and Lupita’s powder blue Cinderella moment, to Jared Leto’s red bow tie and Angelina Jolie’s, well, everything. Click on to see my favorites from the Oscars red carpet and share yours in the comments!
WOOHOO! It’s Oscar time! I’ll be updating this gallery ALL NIGHT with photos of the celebs as they walk the red carpet. What will Lupita Nyong’o wear? Exactly how will Jared Leto’s mane of luscious ombre locks be styled? Will anyone dare to ask Cate Blanchett about Woody Allen? Keep checking back for photos! And follow Katie at @TheFrisky and me at @xoamelia for all of our Twitter commentary.
The big night is tonight — the Academy Awards! — but for the independent film industry, last night’s Indie Spirit Awards are an even more meaningful occasion, as they gather to celebrate the films that made it to the screen despite very little funds or backing. Interestingly, all of last night’s big winners are frontrunners in their categories at tonight’s Academy Awards, with Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”), and Lupita Nyong’o and “12 Years A Slave” very likely to take home gold men. But fashion-wise, things couldn’t be more different. Saving the gowns for later, the women at last night’s Indie Spirit Awards went a little crazy with color, hem-length, and prints, while some did away with dresses altogether. Click through to see who had the most effortless hippie vibe, who is dressing like a newly single lady, and which actress is rumored to have worn her pit hair with pride…
I’m gonna be honest, aside from certain key times of day, I pretty much refuse to walk inside an H&M. One of two things happen when I do:
- I walk in and almost immediately turn around and walk out because I can just tell by the air that staying any longer is going to give me an anxiety attack
- I decide to brave it, spend 30 minutes collecting items to try on, realize the line for the dressing room is 10 chicks deep, throw my stuff down in a huff and walk out empty-handed.
But now that H&M has an e-commerce site that delivers in the U.S. we can all avoid that particular hell hole and just order online, venturing inside only if we’re headed straight to the register to return something that doesn’t fit. Unlike some online retailers, H&M has large photos of all their items so you can get a sense of fabric quality and color. And they no doubt have a much better selection than what’s in stores. Here are 10 things — all under $60 — I’m currently coveting for spring!
Earlier today, I tweeted the following: “Ugh, Jared Leto is so hot but he gets less so every time I am reminded he hangs out with Terry Richardson.” And I’m still totally sad that Jared continues to be friends with the predatory pervtographer, but I might have to take back the part about him being less attractive because of it. Because I just saw these photos of the man formerly known as Jordan Catalano and, in the words of Angela Chase, IT HURTS TO LOOK AT HIM. He is that pretty. Oh god, and the second photo, with the, gulp, man bun? That is legit jerk-off material for me. I’m still disappointed in your friendship choices, Jared, but your beauty cannot be denied. [Flaunt]
In 1931, Winston Churchill predicted a future in which all the world’s meat would be grown in labs. But he never predicted they would be grown from celebrity tissue samples. Bitelab.org, a company that grows artisanal salami from tissue samples, wants us all to eat more celebrity meat. They have been hard at work developing the technology to create high-quality charcuterie from your favorite celebrities’ DNA. All it takes is a quick biopsy of, say, James Franco. In a process by which they isolate stem cells, they grow cultures into in-vitro meats, which can be dry aged and spiced into the finest sandwich stuffers. Keep reading »
Well, after nearly 13 years in New York City, I’ve started to get a serious itch to move back to my home state of California. Maybe it’s just this exhaustive winter, but I haven’t been able to stop daydreaming about 75 degree February days spent at the beach, transcendent sunsets on the palm-tree specked horizon, and tacos — lots of tacos. Until I find my way back west, I’m looking to add a little Cali-inspiration to my wardrobe. Here are some pieces that are speaking to my SoCal-bred soul.
