By far, some of my favorite dresses at last night’s Oscars — Rooney Mara, Milla Jovovich, and Gwyneth Paltrow — were white. But they were anything but bridal. Click through to see the women who wore this trends.
So, real talk. Last night, Julie and I compared notes on the best and worst dressed at the Academy Awards. And we … well, we disagreed on quite a few. But one thing we did agree on was that, by and large, everyone look pretty damn good. So this time around, we’re not doing a worst dressed list. Coming up, we’ve got the women who rocked white and the ladies who went crazy for sequins, two big trends on the red carpet. The 28 ladies in this gallery wore an array of colors, cuts, and embellishments — who was your favorite?
Sacha Baron-Cohen walked the Academy Awards red carpet as “The Dictator.” And then this happened. I’m pretty over SBC, but I have to admit I enjoyed seeing Seacrest caught off guard.
Seth Rogen, host of last night’s Independent Spirit Awards, pretty much killed it in his opening monologue, taking well-deserved shots at Mel Gibson (“Drive made Jews so scary I thought Mel Gibson directed it”) and Lars Von Trier. But his best joke killed three birds with one stone — Brett Ratner, who was forced to resign from producing the Oscars after he used a homophobic slur, Chris Brown, and the Grammy Awards. Referring to Ratner’s swift ouster, Rogen joked that he was better suited to produce the Grammys anyway, because “at the Grammys, you can literally beat the shit out of a nominee and be asked to perform twice.” Oof.

This week, Dakota Fanning turned all of 18 years old. Remarkably, so is Courtney Stodden — just some food for thought, if you will, because age is the only thing the two have in common. Dakota’s fresh, preternatural approach to style may have fallen to the back burner since her younger sister’s debut, but I’m bringing back Dakota. This Fashion Week fixture has an easy grace and a look that’s wise beyond her years. Here are her best fashion moments…
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.
