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 about. And yet! The Donald Trump-sponsored beauty pageant continues on, offering viewers a multi-layered competition involving ballgowns, swimsuits and intense judging panel questions about wearing swimsuits. Also, Giuliana Rancic and Andy Cohen hosted, so it was pretty much the gayest thing ever.
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 a little show honoring them — women like Whitney Houston, who received a tribute performance from Melanie Fiona and Jordin Sparks. We may have been called divas in our time, but we’re nothing compared to these ladies.
Check out all the diva-appropriate fashion above!
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 really good time. And judging from the pics from Wednesday night’s LOVE Hangover ball, we’re correct.
The annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards honors outstanding women in all fields, from politics and philanthropy to athletics and entertainment. This year’s ceremony saw gold-medal Olympians, musicians, designers, and — ahem — a voice of a generation, all decked out in some formidable fashion. Let’s see who did it best (and worst) at the event…
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 outfits rocked and whose fell flat? Click through to find out!
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. Let’s take a look at the best (and slightly questionably)-dressed of the elite crowd…
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 better place. Every year, Andrew and pals host the Do Something Awards, which honors people who have really Done Something extraordinary, and a slew of celebs come out to fete them. (Including, presumably, his old “Melrose Place” castmates, who go, “Oh, so that’s what Andrew’s been up to!”)
Now that we’ve cleared that up: The 2012 Do Something Awards were held Sunday night, and here’s what everyone wore.
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. Audra McDonald, who stars in Porgy and Bess, won top honors as Best Actress — her fifth Tony award. Peter and the Starcatcher received five awards, and Clybourne Park won Best Play.
But what were they wearing? That’s really the question, right? Let’s find out.
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 Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld. “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited” features celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, and Tilda Swinton celebrating — what else? — Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. If you’re in the New York City area, the exhibit opens Friday, June 8 (that’s tomorrow, y’all) at 18 Wooster St. and runs for a week, and the book comes out on August 15. If you can’t make it to check out the show, and don’t feel up to cashing out $98 for a book (me neither), here’s the next best thing: the good, the bad, and the “what in the name of Coco was she thinking” from last night’s event. Commençons!
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 2) It’s in Los Angeles. So consider that we’re grading on a curve as you flip through and check out the horror show after the jump!
