The MTV Video Music Awards are kind of hilarious, considering the complete lack of videos played on MTV these days. But at least we can count on one thing from them: insane fashion. Everyone has carte blanche to come dressed up as a pile of trash, or a geisha robot or whatever–and this year, that’s exactly what happened. After the jump, check out how Beyonce, Katy Perry and all the rest fared.
“Well, it’s a fairly ridiculous act. I mean, let’s be honest: It’s a very primal thing that you’re doing and it involves, you know—it’s what they call bumping uglies, which sort of puts it in the right place. It’s a horrifyingly embarrassing act. It’s the most vulnerable you can be as a person, I think. … Yeah, can’t wait for my kid to see [my sex scene in "The 40 Year Old Virgin"]! Um, no. But I am never embarrassed by something that makes people laugh. I knew that girl. She’s a good-time girl who lives in the Valley — who works in the bookstore — and goes to community college on the side, and is really into funky stuff in the bedroom. Her entire outlook on life made perfect sense to me.”
—Elizabeth Banks, who has been in some of the awkwardest sex scenes of all time, talks to GQ about why sex is funny on screen, and why she’s always willing to go there in movies. And she’s got a good point. It’s like when you start saying your name over and over again slowly and it begins to sound like nonsense. When you stop to think about what sex is, and how obsessed we are all with it, it sounds pretty ridiculous. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

? That’s for amateurs. If you’re Beyonce, you tell the world your womb is implanted with Jay-Z’s seed by unbuttoning your sequined jacket after performing “Love on Top,” at the MTV VMAs, rubbing your belly, and dramatically telling the crowd, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.” Just a little while before, Beyonce walked the red carpet in a voluminous caftan and reportedly told a reporter that she was expecting. Her rep confirmed the news, while husband Jay-Z looked positively gleeful as he cheered on her performance. I love these two and am psyched they’re makin’ babies together. Mazel tov! [Huffington Post

Look at Olivia Wilde trying to be all incognito in the photo above. It’s okay, Liv, we’re paying more attention to your early fall look than you, actually. Why are we so smitten with her ensemble, you might ask? Well for starters, we’re suckers for stripe maxi dresses. But even more than that, we love that Olivia took a summer staple and made it appropriate for fall. The trick to successfully working a maxi dress for autumn is to have hints of skin showing while also adding rugged leather and suede pieces. That way you don’t look as if you’re trying to push the season too far or hold on to the last one. A word of caution, though: your leather items should be more boho than biker. Click on to see our inspiration look. Keep reading »
Katie Holmes takes losing weight for movies seriously — even if her role doesn’t call for it. With “Don’t be Afraid of the Dark,” Holmes has gone on a radical diet that has brought her down to 130 pounds!
A source tells OK!, “When she wants to slim down for a role, she eats only unprocessed raw vegetables. Because of the sugar content, she tries not to eat fruit; if she does, she usually sticks to berries, because they have the lowest glycemic index.” Read more… Keep reading »
