The new movie “Ides of March” is all about two of the hottest dudes on earth – Ryan Gosling and George Clooney — teaming up to run a political campaign. But that didn’t stop the ladies of the film from dressing to the nines for the film’s premiere. Check out who won the race — and who made a poor showing at the polls — after the jump.

I don’t know much about weddings, but one thing I do know, to quote Anthony, Charlotte’s main gay on “Sex and the City,” is that when it comes to the dress, “you go Wang.” And if anyone is going to have the best of the best on their wedding day, it’s Kim Kardashian. When the reality TV star married Kris Humphries last month, she wore not one, not two, but three Vera Wang gowns. That’s the strapless ball gown she wore for the ceremony, above, and then she changed into two other dresses (also ivory) over the course of the night. You’ll be able to get a much closer look at their wedding during E!’s “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” special this Sunday at 8 p.m. and Monday at 9 p.m.
Until then, click through this slideshow of a bunch of famous brides who wore Wang to walk down the aisle. Keep reading »
The best moment ever on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was Allison DuBois’ (the woman behind the show “Medium”) dinner party cameo last season. ” In case you missed her appearance, she got trashed, puffed on an e-cigarette, and insulted pretty much everyone in the room. She taunted Kyle Richards with threats like “I know when your family will die.” Ironically, she failed to predict the Kelsey/Camille Grammer split and the passing of Russell Armstrong. Even though she made a total ass of herself, I hope and pray that she will come ’round again this season. To replicate Allison’s look, find out what you’ll need after the jump. And click through the rest of this slideshow for the other reality TV-inspired costumes we assembled this week. Keep reading »
It’s not just that we love Beyonce’s new video for “Countdown” (and we loooooove it). It’s more like in the last hour or so we’ve viewed it about 10 times, and are obsessed with Miss B.’s incredible styling and Audrey Hepburn-meets-Bob-Fosse-meets-”Dreamgirls” vibe. Could she be any cuter with those Audrey-inspired bangs and perfectly manicured eyebrows. Oooh girl, it’s almost too good. We just had to break down all of the looks from the video, so we could salivate over them/try to reproduce them ourselves.
Okay, I have had it with you, Jeffrey Campbell. Some of your shoes are great, but holy hell dude, most of your shoes are straight out of my disco tranny nightmares (yes, I have disco tranny nightmares). What are you thinking, with the platform, and the pleather, and the fringe and just so muuuuuuuuuch? Also, do you hate ladies, because it seems like you might be trying to kill us all with the completely untenable platforms and ankle-busting heels. It’s just craze. Unadulterated craze. And though many of your shoes may be appropriate footwear for say, introductory classes at clown college, or a night in an ecstasy-fueled rave cave, we cannot really abide by the Jeffrey Campbell-ization of America. Moderation people, moderation.

If only babies came with an exchange policy, then we’d never have to hear about another mother trying to sell her newborn for $15,000. Bridget Wismer is the latest baby seller to get caught. She allegedly planned to take a trip to Disney World with the bank she made from her baby. Her asking price seems a little low, doesn’t it? Disney World is not that fun.

The death of Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, has brought mourners and techno-philes to pay their respects at Apple stores around the globe. But there’s been one reaction in the past 24 hours that I never would have expected: St. Croix mock turtlenecks, which Jobs loved and was oft-photographed wearing, has seen an “almost 100 percent increase in sales” overnight. In response, St. Croix told TMZ it is planning a memorial to their unlikely brand ambassador, which is quite sweet. Says a St. Croix rep, “We have a great respect for everything he did and we’re glad he believed in our American-made product.” [TMZ]
A St. Croix turtleneck is one way to pay homage to the inventor of the Mac. But if you’re looking to rock a Steve Jobs look with a perhaps more feminine slant, I’ve rounded up some cute, ready-for-fall turtlenecks at all price points. All of them, it goes without saying, look good with an iPod.
