Lucky for us, the internet remembers. What’s the internet, you ask? Well, according to Julia Stiles’ character in this clip from a 1993 “Ghostwriter” episode, “It’s a world where you’re judged by what you say and think, not by what you look like, a world where curiosity and imagination equals power.” God, I miss the ’90s.

Ginnifer Goodwin usually looks one million shades of uncomfortable in whatever ill-advised avant-garde look she’s chosen as of late, so I’m thrilled to finally see her in a dress that doesn’t epitomize a classic case of the clothes wearing you (though I maintain that an angled shoulder-length “lob” would be infinitely more flattering on her round face than her current cropped style). This pretty Monique Lhuillier lace frock, while a bit twee for my personal taste (and who cares about that?), perfectly highlights Ginnifer’s girlish woodland nymph aesthetic, but the studded black heels and mother-of-pearl clutch keep the ensemble from veering too saccharine. On point! Bonus points for the neon lips (and matching nails!), and pssst: if you’re in the market for a hot pink pout just like Ginnifer’s, NARS Carthage is the be-all, end-all, case closed.
January Jones is well known for her icy blonde locks — they’re the calling card of her “Mad Men” character Betty Draper. But just today, January was spotted sporting a head full of red hair — with long red extensions, even. Is she trying to cut in on Christina Hendricks’ trademark look? What do you think of her new red look?
And while we’re here, let’s play a little game. With red hair all the rage in Hollywood — from Christina Hendricks to Julianne Moore to Lindsay Lohan — would you be surprised to learn that many of these famous manes came from a bottle? Keep clicking through this slideshow and see if you can guess whether each star’s carrot top is for real — or totally fake.
Keira Knightley is essentially perfect in every way. I will accept no argument: she is the precise type of girl for whom the old paper bag adage was made. This alone is a case for anything she wears registering an automatic “love it” with me, because seriously. Last night, Keira turned out in LA for the premiere of her new film with Steve Carrell, “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” (that I am dying to see, by the way), and she opted for this embroidered Valentino for the occasion. Now, I am the rare breed of young person who embraces anything and everything with a floral print, even if it looks better suited to my great-aunt’s curtains than my body, but even so I’m feeling torn about Keira’s choice in dress here. It’s beautifully made, and I’m sure it’s breathtaking up close, but the raised flowers have serious, serious plush carpet factor. What do you think: are you down with this rug-like gown, or would you feel it better underfoot? I’m so sorry.
