Jennifer Lawrence showed up at this weekend’s GLAAD Media Awards missing about six inches of her trademark long locks. I think she looks gorgeous, and I’m having to pysically hold myself back from bringing this picture to my stylist and saying, “Gimme!” (Must. Resist. Impulsive. Haircuts. Must. Commit. To. Growing. Hair. Out.) Do you share… READ MORE »

I adore graphic prints and vintage photography, so my first inclination is to love this Topshop pencil skirt. I mean, talk about a statement piece! My only hesitation is that I’m not sure about having a “motel” sign plastered across my crotch. What do you guys think? And if you are on team “love it” READ MORE »

It isn’t fair about Halle Berry. So pretty, so talented, so fertile. Sigh. In any case, good for her and congrats to her and Oliver on their impending “surprise” babe. That said, I’m having less than good feelings about the gown she wore to the Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, premiere of her film “The Call.”

I recently held a private induction ceremony in my mind for Eva Mendes to join the exclusive club of Celebrites Who Can Do No Fashion Wrong (other members include Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba). I mean, look at this outfit. I’ve been dreaming about that pink coat and glamorous hair flip for weeks now. But… READ MORE »

I know printed pants are not super popular ’round these parts, because a while back I did a post about styling printed denim, and the overwhelming response on Facebook and Twitter was “WHY DOES THIS EXIST?” So I’m going to go out on a limb and admit it: I really like these floral pants Drew… READ MORE »

Whenever I see Blake Lively I feel compelled to wail, “Blaaaaaaake!,” Amy Winehouse style (God rest her soul). Sadly, this Blake ain’t no Fielder-Civil, but I suppose she’ll do. The “Savages” actress (what a terrible, terrible movie) has maintained a curiously low profile since she wed Ryan Reynolds back in September, but she showed up… READ MORE »

In case you haven’t already noticed, I am totally on Team Selena. I kind of like the girl — she’s genuinely talented and actually seems refreshingly down-to-earth. Of course, that could all be an act, but who knows? I also think she (or her stylist, for that matter) happens to have great taste: the “SpringREAD MORE »

If one strategically overlooks the critical donut hair situation as I have chosen to do, Emma Stone looks lovely. Fresh, glowing skin, flattering LBD, simple black pumps, a rad fluoro pink lip that says “Spring is coming!” 10 times better than any groundhog ever could — all very nice. However. Is there anything more distracting… READ MORE »

Jennifer Lawrence was spotted at Heathrow Airport yesterday, in an very incognito trench coat, brimmed hat and sunglasses. Maybe she’s doing promotion for “Silver Linings Playbook,” but I prefer to think she’s in London for a secret rendezvous with zombie ex-boyfriend (and native Brit) Nicholas Hoult. Normally, I would be super annoyed with another lady… READ MORE »

I hate to hate anything even remotely associated with the goddess Cate Blanchett, but this shiny, stiff-looking Armani Privé dress is testing the limits of her sartorial perfection. It’s like what an off-duty superhero would wear to a red carpet event, all latex-y and, like, “Hey, I may or may not be fighting crime and… READ MORE »

Kate Bosworth showed up at Sundance to promote her starring role in the new film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s autobiographical novel Big Sur, directed by her fiancé Michael Polish. They certainly chose an odd time to release a Kerouac movie, what with that other one coming out and all. I’m curious to see if Polish’s… READ MORE »

Hippie mama Drew Barrymore appeared on “Good Morning America” in this flowy bohemian outfit to promote her new makeup line, “Flower” (which Jessica is already obsessed with–stay tuned for a Beauty Test Drive!). I really like the pleated skirt paired with ankle boots, but that top is way too shapeless for my taste. What do you… READ MORE »

Maria Menounos, breathtakingly gorgeous even while bearing a slight resemblance to Julia Allison, wore this mint green blazer to conduct some “Extra” interviews earlier this week. I really love the color, but in the form of a blazer, it’s tough not to evoke Don Johnson vibes, and it’s definitely more of a summer look in general. What… READ MORE »

Okay, so clearly the show “1600 Penn” looks terrible. Which is weird, because both Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman are not actualy terrible themselves. And yet the premise of a hokey, silly family in the White House seems just so totally off kilter with the current socio-political reality. But in any case, what are we… READ MORE »

Have you guys seen “Django Unchained”? I’m kind of embarrassed that I haven’t yet, but it just requires, like, so much effort to actually plan it and go to the movie theatre, and spending $15 just to sit down and watch something always makes me feel weirdly cheated. I’m the type of person that will… READ MORE »

Maybe it’s because in high school I had a pair of mustard yellow tights and every time I wore them my dad would point and yell, “JAUNDICE!,” but I always feel a bit hesitant about yellow and orange hosiery. Really, that’s the only thing keeping me from giving Kathy Griffin an enthusiastic “Well Played” for… READ MORE »

There was a time in the early ’90s when sunflowers were totally ubiquitous. I’m pretty sure TV’s “Blossom” had a terrible sunflower hat, and sunflowers were the ’90s symbol for some kind of whitewashed take on ’60s bohemianism. So perhaps that’s why I’m not super into the new ads from Prada, featuring supermodels Amber Valletta… READ MORE »

This Stella McCartney dress is so typical of the designer in that at first glance it’s totally fine, even good, but upon further inspection something is just off. And once you see it there’s no turning back. For me, it’s the proportions — the fitted suit-like top becomes a big, tulip-shaped (faux leather) balloon skirt… READ MORE »
