Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

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…
Some of Tinseltown’s hottest racks were out in full force last night at Hollywood’s most important event of the year, the Academy Awards, and we at The Frisky Institute for Boob Analysis—which previously studied the breasts on display at the SAG Awards, the Golden Globe Awards, the Emmy Awards, and the Grammy Awards—have painstakingly poured over the bunch. Behold, the mammaries of brand-new mom, Penelope Cruz. Thank you for your bounty, Mother Nature! We revere you! After the jump, we show you some of the best boobs of the evening—and some of the least boob-flattering dresses on the red carpet.
As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who Say] Keep reading »
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’ll be posting all about the Oscars tomorrow, but I couldn’t resist giving you a little tease. Helena Bonham Carter swore that she would be a “catastrophe” on the red carpet, but I think her Union Jack garter belt — on her calve?! — is pure insane genius. I love this woman so hard. Keep reading »
Happy Oscar Day! In just a few hours, the stars will start walking the red carpet and hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be double- and triple-checking that they’ve got their lines down. In honor of Hollywood’s biggest award show — and no doubt because they have a raging crush on him like we do — the blog Lovelyish has put together the Definitive Collection of James Franco GIFs. Check out a couple more after the jump and the rest here. Keep reading »
