While watching stars arrive on the red carpet and judging their fashion choices is a fun way to pass the time before an awards show starts, I’m always a little bummed that so little attention is paid to the jewelry they’re wearing. Zoom in, dammit! Gimme close-ups! Often times, the bling choices celebs make are far more exciting than the the dresses themselves, and not just because these borrowed baubles are worth way, way more. Diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and platinum abound, and at this year’s Academy Awards (and at the parties afterward), the stars really rocked it. Let’s zoom in on some of their choices shall we? Here are our favorite jewelry pieces from the the big night…
Maybe it was the fact that I’ve been in an outrageously good mood for the last few days. Perhaps it was the delicious glass of wine I was drinking. Or maybe (almost) all the female celebs who walked the red carpet at last night’s Academy Awards really did look so incredible that I was hard-pressed to find anything I absolutely despised. How could I put together a Good, Bad & Ugly slideshow if the the worst I could find was “meh”? Even the WTF dresses walking the red carpet were WTF in a fun, fascinating way, rather than a “good god, who let her leave the house?!” sort of way. So, I decided to say, “To hell with it!” and dole out mostly love. Keep clicking to see which stars looked stunning, which were sort of strange, and who was simply so-so.
We liked it when Emma Watson
chopped off her hair—something she wasn’t contractually allowed to do while filming “Harry Potter
“—into a sleek and sophisticated “you don’t own me” pixie cut. But now, apparently, Emma is having second thoughts about the hair. “I am trying to grow it but it’s slow, it’s taking a while obviously,” she said. “If I want to keep acting then it’s more flexible for me to have it longer for different roles, it’s quite a specific cut.” [People
Pish posh, Emma. If you like your hair short, stick with it. For every Keri Russell, whose career tanked post cut, there’s someone who did great rocking short hair. After the jump, stars whose careers thrived when their hair was shorn.
. Everyone’s favorite “Girl Next Door” has a new sex tape
making the rounds on the interwebs. And while the tape of her that was released in May was with her high school boyfriend Justin Frye, this time around her partner on film is a female friend, Taryn Ryan. But that isn’t the most scandalous thing. Apparently, Kendra claims she tried to block the release of this tape and the one that came out in May. But Radar Online says she set up a holding company in 2008, so that when they were released she would get a large chunk of the profits. They say she made $680,000 from the sale. [Huffington Post
Regardless of whether Kendra’s tape was leaked on purpose, here is a look back at some other celebrities who’ve gotten caught up in lesbian, or at least bi-curious, scandals.
I am a complete kitchen ignoramus, but I have fanciful dreams of becoming a top chef. I may have to lower my expectations just a tad but I am still determined to learn how to cook. After the jump some stylish and affordable cooking supplies to get me started.
I don’t know if it’s their sexy accents, perfect tans or sun-bleached hair, but Australian men are hot, hot, hot! And, lucky for us, Aussie hunks have managed to infiltrate every industry, from cooking to skateboarding. In honor of Australia Day, let’s go down under for some scorching hotness, mate.
