“Twilight: Breaking Dawn” doesn’t come out for another few days, but that hasn’t stopped rabid fans of the series from camping out in front of the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles in anticipation of the movie premiere. And oh, they’re not just camping, they’re plotting, planning, and wearing wedding dresses. They’re making elaborate collages and totems to their gods, the stars of the “Twilight” franchise. Check out the fruits of their dedication in this slideshow.

Each year, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund fêtes a generation of emerging American designers and honors one — the winner — with a $300,000 grant. For an up-and-coming designer, the award is a fast track to notoriety. The annual ceremony also brings out some of the best and worst in fashion. This year’s awards were held last night and some of the brightest fashionistas (and -istos!) came out to play.
My boyfriend and I are obsessed with “Downton Abbey.” Like, completely obsessed. We watched all the episodes in the span of a week and are currently rewatching them. We love the drama and the writing and the characters, but truthfully, I would probably still watch it with the sound turned off because the sets and costumes are so breathtakingly beautiful. The series follows an aristocratic family from 1912 to 1919, and my god, the outfits these people wear to dinner! Alas, we can’t all dress like turn-of-the-century British nobility, but we can bring a little vintage extravagance into our wardrobes — especially during holiday party season. Click through to check out a few gorgeous modern-day pieces that would do the Crawley family proud…
If you’re a celeb or model posing topless on the cover of a “respectable” magazine, you’ve got to find a way to cover the naughty bits. Behold, one of the more popular magazine cover poses — the breast cupping. It’s a pose that says, “I’m topless! But you still can’t see my nipples! Mysterious.” Kathy Griffin had Jesse Tyler Ferguson do the honors on the cover of the latest issue of Out Magazine. Of course, she is paying homage to Janet Jackson’s 1983 cover or Rolling Stone. Here are 12 more celebs who’ve done the pose proud. [ONTD]
We’ve already discussed how there are too few women writing for TV and movies, and how that makes it challenging to find worthwhile women to watch. Even when there are women on television, they’re often the kind of cloying and annoying characters that make too many compromises, or are possessed with stereotypical flaws that allow them to be palatable to viewers at home (Liz Lemon, I’m looking at you). Or worse, they serve as simply foils or disposable love interests for the show’s male protagonists.
So it’s refreshing when there’s actually a smart, well-written, complex female character on a show. Here are 11 of our favorites (plus an honorable mention). But listen, we can’t watch all the TV (we’ve tried, trust us, we’ve tried). So we’re looking to you to tell us what lady characters don’t make you want to wretch. Tell us in the comments.
This just in: Jennifer Lopez may have found love (or a rebound) … from behind. She is rumored to be dating her much younger backup dancer, Casper Smart. Get it, girl! It wouldn’t be the first time the former Fly Girl fell for a guy with funky moves. She was briefly married to Cris Judd in 2001, also her backup dancer. It’s kind of the perfect dating scenario for a newly single, female performer like Jennifer. Pick a man who lives on your tour bus and gets paid to look at you shaking your butt and watch a romance blossom. Click through to see other famous ladies who’ve dirty danced with their backup men.

You know what we could use a little reader feedback on? Poses. I know looking at our outfits every day is terribly interesting on its own, but we’d like to kick it up a notch by making our poses more entertaining. Not all of us are like Ami, for whom posing wacky comes naturally. So, if you could play Tyra for a day and direct our daily outfit photo shoot, how would you like us to pose? (Naked and/or in a gigantic Greek salad are not viable options, FYI.)
Every season, there are a few It Bags that get everyone drooling. Few are actually able to purchase the bag, but most just put it on a mental wish list. But we’ve discovered a way that anyone can have an It Bag without spending a few paychecks. We’ve found seven bags inspired by this season’s It Bags (not knock-offs!), proving that you don’t have to spend a lot to get a chic and on-trend or classic bag.
This past weekend, celebs turned out in droves to honor … a performance artist? Yep, you read that right; instead of the usual self-congratulatory Hollywood crap, stars convened at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles to honor Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic. Abramovic, along with Debbie Harry, performed at the event, and there was plenty of good, bad and totally out-there fashions (we’re looking at you, Jeremy Scott). Click through to see what we mean.
Colorblocking is a huge trend right now, and for good reason: it’s the perfect antidote to dark winter days. Ready to try it yourself? All you need are two (or more) bright colored solids, worn together for visual impact. Cobalt jeans and a pink sweater, for example. Or a red dress with orange tights. Whether you want to dive into a rainbow outfit or just add some color to your winter wardrobe, we’ve rounded up some bright basics to help you get started. Click through to check ‘em out…
