How do the stars — well, some of them — spend the night before the Oscars? Celebrating the best of independent cinema, that’s how. The Indie Spirit Awards’ purple carpet is decidedly more casual than the Academy Awards, but stars like Michelle Williams, Rashida Jones, and Elizabeth Olsen still don’t slack off in the style department. Unfortunately, some others do. Check out the good, the bad, and the meh sartorial choices at last night’s fête.
It’s not quite spring yet, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t hide a backless dress underneath a cardigan or sweater. These open-backed dresses highlight an oft-forgotten sexy part of the body. Bring sexy back with your, uh, sexy back with these 10 cute little numbers.
There’s nothing stars love doing more than celebrating themselves and one another. And that’s why right now is prime celeb happiness time. It’s awards season, culminating this Sunday night with the Oscars, and famous folk have been out in full force at various celebratory parties and events hosted by Eva Longoria, Vanity Fair and the like. Still, just because there’s a reason for the season doesn’t mean that everyone’s got their sartorial ducks in a row. (We’re looking at you, Jessica Chastain). Click through to see who hit it, and who’s just a mess.
TGIF! I’m so glad the week has come to an end because that means it’s that much closer to A) Oscar Sunday, my favorite Sunday of the year, and B) Monday, when Winona, our awesome Portland-based staffer, arrives in NYC for the week. Hooray! Here is what we’re wearing today…
Bike shorts. Neon. A kooky ballerina. Headdresses. Fringe. To the stars attending Sunday’s Academy Awards, let these 20 worst Oscar looks ever guide you towards what NOT to do when dressing for your big red carpet moment.
The Academy Awards are on Sunday and in anticipation, I fell into a deep — and at times dark — Oscar dress k-hole. We’ll get to the bad dresses of the past later, but first! The 30 most beautiful and memorable Oscar dresses ever.
Boudoir dressing is undeniably trendy right now, but nobody ever said it was easy to pull off. The concept in and of itself is intimidating — lingerie worn not beneath your clothes, but as your clothes? It’s enough to send me straight back to bed. Though runways and catalogues would like us to believe that you can wear your laciest, most plunging bra as a top, no problem, head-to-toe lingerie styling is best left for the flat-chested, lanky-limbed, and modelesque. If that’s you, well, you’ve pretty much got it made, but for the rest of us who aren’t quite so genetically blessed, there are still plenty of ways to integrate this sensual, ultra-feminine vibe into your every day style.
For Kate Walsh, star of “Private Practice,” posing naked on the cover of this month’s Shape was all about conquering a fear. “I was terrified, but I really wanted to do a naked cover—especially with Shape, because the magazine is about loving yourself inside and out,” she explained. “Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy. I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that.” [viaKate-Book.com]
Hey, feeling good about the way you look in the buff is just as good a reason as any to keep the clothes off when the camera starts flashing. This got us thinking about other celebs who’ve bared it all for the sake of a photo spread. Just for fun, we decided to give you a little peep show. Go ahead, look. You know you want to.
I’m working from home today because my shower was broken, I haven’t had a hot shower in three days, and I had to hang out and let the plumber in. However, I can tell you that it is so warm outside — high-50s in February?! – that I actually wore flip-flops to walk my dog at lunch. I know I am supposed to be scared of and upset about global warming — and I am! — but can I also kinda sorta briefly bask in the seasonally inappropriate temps?

We’ve got expensive taste, but don’t have the wallet to match. So while we’ve been salivating over the Spring 2012 shoe collections, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever be able to afford even a small wedge of a McQueen wedge any time soon. That’s why we’ve done our due diligence and found a vast array of designer lookalikes at a fraction of the cost. These shoes mimic the designs of the latest Altuzarras, Casadeis and 3.1 Phillip Lims — but at a fraction of the cost. Click through, and happy shopping.
