Rosario Dawson is my friggin’ dream girl. She has one of those crazy serendipitous discovery stories — Larry Clark and Harmony Korine, who collaborated on “Kids,” literally saw her sitting on her front stoop in the Lower East Side and cast her in the film immediately. From there Rosario went on to star in big-budget flicks like “He Got Game,” “Josie and the Pussycats,” and, uh, a ton of other movies. She has 6 films coming out this year alone! Since Rosario is killing it right now (also, always), let’s take a walk down memory lane and check out her 10 best red (or blue/grey/green/what have you) carpet looks of all time!
Here are all of the things I know about Olga Kurylenko: she’s Russian, she’s dating Danny Huston, and she has the type of face that I would like to wear as my own. Also, she’s starring in a new movie with Tom Cruise, which I won’t be seeing. My criteria for movies is, “is Tom Cruise in this movie?” If the answer is yes, I won’t see it. Sorry, everyone who’s ever been in a movie with Tom Cruise. Including you, Olga.
But anyway, I’m almost always crying about how celebrities don’t wear nearly enough Elie Saab. I don’t get it — every single one of his dresses is to die for, and on the occasion that someone does wear Saab’s designs, they look like this. Impeccable! So: if you’re famous, have ever been famous, or may become famous, and you’re reading this, WEAR ELIE SAAB. DO IT FOR ME. [Photo: WENN]
Selena Gomez is 20 now, right? And the expiration date on her devil’s pact with Disney has passed, right? Okay, good. So that means it’s fine, and totally legal, to say that she looks insanely hot wearing this Atelier Versace pantsuit at the “Spring Breakers” premiere in Germany. This look is the perfect combination of fashion-y “girl hot” (it’s a gold-embellished pinstripe pantsuit) and “guy hot” (that, uh, sternum is pretty killer). Selena is freakin’ gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see what she does sans Bieber. I mean, poor Justin. At least he has sizzurp (and his boys “Lil Za” and “Lil Twist”) to keep him warm at night.
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 than a pair of sheer, billowy wings to ruin an otherwise perfectly good look? Those sleeves are seriously large, and they take this simple Gucci dress with its retro silhouette and drive it straight into “queen of the bat cave” territory. I wish I liked it more than I do. What do you think?
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 spend however much on clothes or makeup and then bitch about the price of a movie, which is actually a really terrible quality now that I think of it. I should address that.
Anyway, “Django Unchained”! Kerry Washington is in it. Here she is at the Berlin premiere in a checkered Louis Vuitton dress (from the same collection as the black and white playsuit Kristen Stewart wore back in October), which she accessorized with a white bow headband and white pumps. Something about the way the dress falls has an “Alice in Wonderland” disproportional effect, like she could either be very large or very small, which is only magnified by the girly (indeed, very Alice-esque) headwear and tiny rectangular clutch. That said, I think I love it. It’s weird and sort of mod, and I am certainly not opposed to “Wonderland” chic. Are you feeling it, or is it a little too artsy for your taste?
I really love Emma Stone and think she is both the cutest and coolest, but I am still not feeling this red-on-red-on-red ensemble (she wore bright red pumps, as well). Too much stuff! But then, she is wearing maybe the world’s most amazing statement necklace. Who needs an oversized crystal flower on their dress when they are wearing the world’s most amazing statement necklace? I want to think that Emma’s hair and makeup looks faaaaaabulous, but I also have this bangs pathology and the way she’s wearing hers reminds me of when Kim Cattrall had the same straight-down wispy bangs and rounded blowout in “Sex and the City,” which is a very late ’90s look. Or, alternatively, Britney Spears circa now. Am I being unfair? Am I just radiating highly contagious jealousy around these parts since Ryan Gosling is always talking about how much he loves Emma and how much fun they have together? Mayhaps. Keep reading »
Amanda Seyfried is pretty consistent in serving it up hot on the fashion front, though it’s also entirely possible that I am merely hypnotized into thinking everything she wears is great by virtue of her crazy-perfect face. This Alexander McQueen gown is all sorts of stunning, and Amanda’s fair-skinned pre-Raphaelite beauty is the ideal complement. She looks like she stepped right out of the 17th century, provided they had enough black eyeliner back then.
Anne Hathaway certainly isn’t the first celeb to shed her sartorial inhibitions with her long hair (see: the Miley Cyrus metamorphosis), but she has proven herself to be far and away one of the most daring. If last week’s love-it-or-loathe-it Givenchy gown wasn’t proof enough for you, this elaborate Tom Ford look should do the trick. Anne is working the Rooney Mara angle pretty hard here in this black high-necked column dress, but turn her ’round and there’s some kind of attached cape situation going on, too. Add the strappy thigh-high bondage shoes (boots, perhaps?) into the mix and you’ve got yourself a look for sure.
One of the key attributes to pulling off an ensemble this ambitious is looking like you know what you’re doing, also known as confidence, and Anne has that in spades… so I’m not hating the overall effect probably half as much as I should. I just think the lady is kind of working it. What say you?
I’m pretty stoked about “Les Misérables,” mostly because I practically inhaled the book as a precocious 13-year-old but never got the chance to catch it on Broadway. I cry every time the trailer comes on so I should probably, definitely go see it alone. Still, we were hoping that Anne Hathaway, what with her angling for a 2013 Oscar nom for her role as ill-fated prostitute Fantine, would fare slightly better on the red carpet at the film’s world premiere.
