Last night’s Golden Globe Awards, to my delight, featured one of the best red carpets in years. And by that I mean it was trampled on by both some divinely dressed stars (Lupita Nyong’o and Cate Blanchett, for example) and some celebs who should have been told to go home and change (Julia Roberts, why?). Here are my best and worst dressed. Share yours in the comments!
Oh lordy, the Emmys were both weird and depressing (so much death!) and a total snooze. But luckily, the fashions on the red carpet were not. Yes, there were a couple handful of looks I didn’t particularly like, but for the most part, I thought the ladies nailed it with their fancy dresses and pretty faces and stuff.

Vanity Fair, that magazine that your parents probably have in their bathroom magazine rack, does a yearly analysis of the best-dressed celebs, socialites and entrepreneurs. Generally, it seems, the only qualification to appear on the list is that you have to be really, ridiculously rich. Of course, nice clothes help. But really, money does not buy you actual style (nor does it buy you class, as LuAnn de Lesseps can attest). With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the latest Vanity Fair list. As expected, the list has some celebs on it, but it’s also got a healthy number of models and socialites (including one dude whose “profession” is master of foxhounds) — plus quite a few struggling musicians and C-list actors whose families happen to be incredibly wealthy and well-connected (trust funds, anyone?). Oh, are you possibly vaguely related to the Medici’s or some other powerful Renaissance family? You’re on it.
We put together a short list of some of the dozens of best-dressed picks, analyzing what they wore — plus, we also threw in some of the people we think actually deserve to be on the list. (I mean, how do you leave Diane Kruger and Solange off a best-dressed round up?) Take a look, won’t you?
Because I was a weird kid, I’ve been reading Vanity Fair since I was, like, 14. There’s nothing I enjoy more than long-form stories about society murders, celebrity addicts and presidential affairs. Every year, Vanity Fair also comes up with a best-dressed list, chock full of names of socialites, French nobility and a gallimaufry of minor European royalty. Usually I don’t know more than a few of the names on the list, and couldn’t even begin to imagine the clothing budgets these people must have.
But this year, VF is making things a bit more democratic. In a ploy to seem relevant, the aged magazine is opening its Best Dressed competition to the public. Nan Kempner is rolling over in her extra-small couture grave. Keep reading »
Maybe the 2013 Golden Globes is a good omen of what’s to come this year, fashion wise. When they were bad, they weren’t all that bad, and when they were good, well, they were amazing. Stand out fashion stars on Sunday night’s Golden Globes red carpet included Kerry Washington, whose delicate shift played nicely off her modern hairstyle, and Katharine McPhee, who took a daring plunge into sexy town in all black. There was a lot to praise last night, and we’re hoping that as award’s season continues, we’ll see more great looks from these stars.
These were our favorites, but don’t forget to share yours in the comments!

Last night’s Emmy Awards were, for the most part, predictable and boring and really, all you need to know is that you should really watch the first season of “Homeland” — which won best drama series — before the second season starts this Sunday. But before you do that, let’s review what everyone wore, starting with our best dressed!
Vanity Fair releases its Best Dressed list annually in the September issue, and each year the results are less surprising than they are, well, wholly expected. It’s the typical Hollywood-meets-high society fodder: nubile French starlets, rap moguls, heiresses, oil magnates, real estate tycoons, athletes, and royalty regularly monopolize the coveted ranks without so much as batting a diamond-studded, private jet-flying eye. Really, nobody who makes the list particularly cares whether or not they make it, because they don’t have to. As for the top spot, well, that goes to Kate Middleton this time around — is there anything more predictable? Keep reading »
Last night’s Grammy Awards was a bit of a somber affair, as the music industry was mourning the sudden death of Whitney Houston. Many stars walked the red carpet in understated black, white, and cream gowns, many of which made our best dressed list. Click on to see whose looks we loved!
Maybe I’m just looking back on the past year with rose-colored glasses, but I thought Hollywood’s biggest stars absolutely rocked the red carpet this year. So many beautiful silhouettes, flattering shapes, bright colors, delectable textures, and daring dips! Here are my picks for the 20 best dresses of the year. Look out 2012, the bar has been raised…
