28 Oscar-Worthy Gowns That Walked The Runway At Paris Couture Week

With the Academy Awards just around the corner, many of the female celebs who will be attending this year’s ceremony — Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita N’yongo, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, etc. — will be looking to the runways this week in Paris, where the Spring 2014 Couture shows are in full swing, for some little ol’ thing to wear. Here are 28 gloriously gorgeous gowns from designers like Christian Dior, Armani Prive, Atelier Versace and Giambattista Valli, that we can imagine catching their eyes.

Female Oscar Nominees In 2014 Remains Dismally Low Yet Again

  • Zero female directors, zero cinematographers, zero female editors, and only two screenwriters. A grand total of seven categories don’t even have one woman nominated! That’s the female nominees at the Academy Awards in 2014. Yes, I said 2014. [Womens Media Center]
  • Amelia had a good take on Jezebel’s recent Lena Dunham/Vogue untouched images stunt and so did Michelle Dean at Flavorwire, who wishes we would stop talking about how creative women look entirely. [Flavorwire]
  • Rolling Stone has not written about abortion rights in a long time, so it’s good this article by esteemed journalist Janet Reitman is a meaty one. [Rolling Stone]
  • On economics, obesity and why fat people might be fat and sick because our culture treats them like garbage. [xoJane] Keep reading »

Here Are The Nominees For The 2014 Academy Awards!

Here Are The Nominees For The 2014 Academy Awards!

This morning, the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards were announced. For the most part, the nominees were expected, and there were few noticeable snubs — though I am still steaming that James Franco in “Spring Breakers” has been all but overlooked this awards season. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump! (And, because I HAVE AN OPINION, DAMMIT, my picks for who I think should win in the top categories are in bold.) Keep reading »

Jennifer Lawrence Blames Cake For Her Fall At The Oscars

“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear
 if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”

Jennifer Lawrence has a typically Jennifer Lawrence explanation (i.e. food-related) for her stumble at last year’s Academy Awards. As I’m sure you recall, when J. Law started up the stairs to accept her award for Best Actress (in “Silver Linings Playbook”), she tripped on the hem of her voluminous Dior gown. Given her very vocal enthusiasm for food, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that dessert was front of mind on the biggest night of her career. [W Magazine]

Jennifer Lawrence Falls Into An Imaginary Ad

Jennifer Lawrence cemented her status as an adorable klutz when she fell up the stairs on the way to accept her Oscar for Best Actress. But her televised tumble was somehow also kind of graceful and gorgeous, wasn’t it? Tumblr user i-nsan proved that point by re-envisioning J.Law’s embarrassing moment as a striking ad for Christan Dior, designer of beautiful, if easy-to-trip-on gowns. Don’t be surprised if you see this in next month’s Vogue. [Tumblr]

Ben Affleck’s Dreamy Oscar Beard Is No More

Ben Affleck reportedly grew his stately beard as a good luck charm for the awards season, and while it didn’t secure him a Best Director nomination, it did get his movie an Oscar for Best Picture. All in all, not bad for a good luck beard, right? But now it seems Ben’s famous facial hair is no more: apparently Jennifer Garner brought clippers to an Oscars after party at a Hollywood restaurant, and, bolstered by tequila shots and cheered on by George Clooney, shaved it off in the hallway (a bit unsanitary, yes, but hell hath no fury like a woman who’s tired of her husband’s beard).

Ami was delighted to hear Ben’s beard is gone, while I’m in a bit of a mourning period myself. I thought it looked great, mostly because it made him more closely resemble Commander Riker from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and that is always a good thing. [Truth. -- Amelia] What do you think? Weigh in below! [Us Weekly]
