The Good, The Bad & The WTF: 2013 Tony Awards

The 67th Annual Tony Awards were held Sunday night, with the inimitable Neil Patrick Harris hosting. Kinky Boots, the new musical from Cindy Lauper, based on the movie of the same name, took home six awards, and Pippin was named best musical revival. I am not a fan of thespians (So showy! So attention-starved! So…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: CMT Country Music Awards

Dust off your guitars and pouf up your bouffants, it’s CMT Awards time. And while we certainly love our country tunes, we watch these awards shows with one eye open, lest the TV explodes from all the blinding glitter on the red carpet. Last night, however, some stars were less offensive than others. Let’s review!

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: 2012 Miss Universe Pageant

There was a moment during last night’s Miss Universe pageant when the lead singer of Train warbled something awful about being on a private island that only Johnny Depp knows about, while the 10 Miss Universe finalists tried to whirl around him in their ballgowns, and I thought: This is what the Mayans were talking

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: VH1 Divas

The word diva has been horribly overused of late. Virtually everyone’s a diva. You send your chicken dish back because it tastes funny? Diva. You want your water at room temperature? Divalicious. You can’t stand yellow M&Ms? Complete diva behavior.

But then there are some real divas. And Sunday night, VH1 put together…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The LOVE Hangover Ball

LOVE magazine is one of our favorites. It’s kind of a fashion magazine for the rest of us. Founded by Katie Grand in 2008, LOVE dared to put unlikely fashion icons like Beth Ditto and transgender model Lea T on its cover. With its fresh fashion perspective , we imagine that the mag’s parties are a…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The London Evening Standard Theater Awards

I went to a play once in London. It was called Posh, and it was about a bunch of private school jerks who might have accidentally killed someone. With that in mind,  I’d say I don’t much care about the London Evening Standard Theater Awards on their face. Rather, I’m more interested in the fact…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

On Tuesday, Vogue hosted the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s annual fashion fund awards, bestowing glory and heaps of cash on one lucky designer.

The annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards honors outstanding women in all fields, from politics and philanthropy to athletics and entertainment.

The Good, The Bad, & The WTF: Celebs At The Madonna Concert

It’s a well-known law of physics that if you hold a Madonna concert in LA, celebs will attend in droves. Her Madgesty’s show at the Staples Center last night was no exception, and celebs like Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, Robyn, and even my favorite Backstreet Boy showed up to cheer her on. So, whose concert…

The Beautiful And The Boring From Chanel Fine Jewelry Anniversary Party

Let’s talk about Places I Wish I Had Been Last Night: Chanel fêted the 80th anniversary of their “Bijoux De Diamants” collection here in New York and, as one can always anticipate from an occasion hosted by the illustrious French fashion house, a host of starlets and socialites alike showed up in their Lagerfeld finest.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The Venice Film Festival, So Far

The Venice Film Festival is the sleepier cousin to the Cannes Film Festival, which is why, despite the fact that we’re two days into the fest, there’s been relatively few major celebrity sitings. We don’t mind, though — it gives us the opportunity to ogle random French and Italian ladies, instead. Check out some of…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2012 Do Something Awards

You know how sometimes you’re like, “Yo, whatever happened to that guy who played simpering Billy Campbell on ‘Melrose Place’?” And then it turns out that Billy Campbell is actually Andrew Shue, and Andrew Shue is the founder of Do Something, an organization that encourages people  to, presumably, Do Something to make the world a…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The “Cosmopolis” (Starring Rob Pattinson!) Premiere

The premiere for Rob Pattinson’s new, David Cronenberg-directed film “Cosmopolis,” was last night, and dozens of ladies vying for the role of Robert Pattinson new GF turned out for the affair. But what all you Twihards really want to know is how are our venerated sparkle vamp is doing. Judging from the Gucci suit he’…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The Teen Choice Awards

Guys, there are so many teens. So many teens that attended this year’s Teen Choice Awards. I’m not really sure what the point of the Teen Choice Awards is, other than to confer praise and accolades from the teen public onto teens they really like and admire. Either way, the teens in attendance at the…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2012 Tony Awards

The Tony Awards were last night, and Once was the big winner, taking home eight of the 11 awards it was nominated for, including Best Musical.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” Exhibit Opening

Chanel events always, without fail, draw an extraordinarily dressed crowd — Karl Lagerfeld, after all, only associates with the most fabulous of people (and yes, the same standard applies to his choice in pets). The Parisian fashion house feted the opening of a 113-photo exhibit to preface Lagerfeld’s upcoming photo book, a collaboration with former…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The 2012 CMT Awards

The CMT Awards come but once a year — a celebration of all things country music. We’re not particularly huge country music fans, but we can appreciate the way country music has veritably dominated pop music these days — that stuff is everywhere. And so it seems not that surprising to see mainstream stars like…

The Good, Bad & WTF: The Wango Tango Festival

L.A.’s Wango Tango fest gathers together pop stars and music fans for a day of music and fun. Justin Bieber was there, which makes sense, but also “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” trainwreck Taylor Armstrong. Does she even know who Justin Bieber is? There was lots of outrageous/horrible fashion, too, because 1) It’s a festival…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “Fashion Star” Is Surprisingly Compelling!

I wasn’t really planning to watch “Fashion Star,” NBC’s new fashion design competition, but I just moved into a new apartment and turned on the TV to keep me company while I was unpacking boxes of books last night. “Fashion Star” happened to be on, and daaaaaaaaamn did I get sucked in. By the end…
