Better late than never! The Critics Choice Awards were given out on Thursday night, kicking off award season. (The People’s Choice Awards were earlier in the week, but let’s face it, those are kind of a joke.) A wrong was righted when Ben Affleck, woefully dissed for a nod by the Academy, took home the best director award; the adorable and insanely talented Quvenzhane Wallis won a prize for her stunning work in “Beasts of the Southern Wild”; and there were a whole lot of beautiful (and a few WTF) gowns on the red carpet. Let’s review the latter…
Ding ding ding! It’s officially awards season. Seems like the last one just ended, but hey, you can never have too many awards. Eventually, they will start giving out softball team trophies that say stuff like “Most Improved” and “Team Player” or whatever.
Tuesday night was the National Board Of Review Awards. The National Board Of Review has a fairly ominous name, but in actuality, they just review stuff and are a nonprofit aimed at facilitating the film industry. “Zero Dark Thirty” apparently swept in all categories except for “Best Male Lead,” which was taken by Bradley Cooper (who is somehow turning into an actual thespian).
In any case, you don’t care about a non-televised awards show. You just want to know what they’re wearing. Let’s commence…
New Year’s Eve is considered one of the biggest party nights of the year, which is why it’s also generally considered one of the most annoying nights of the year. So as you can imagine, only the most irritating celebrities turned out for very public New Year’s parties in Las Vegas and New York. (We’re looking right at you, Kim and Kanye.)
But what were they wearing? Click through to find out.
Alright, fair warning: this may just be the most biased best-dressed list on the Internet. It’s a little unfair that this year’s top red carpet looks happen to come from 10 lovely ladies who we also consider to be all-around shining pantheons of perfection… but who are we to judge? See for yourself! Behold, our favorite looks of the year (in little to no particular order). Do you agree with our picks, or do you think there’s someone we’ve left out? Sound out in the comments, and remember to keep an eye out for our 10 least favorite looks, coming soon.
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.
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 that Anna Wintour was there, in all her frightening glory. And where Anna is, good fashion can’t be far behind. See who hit a home run — and who totally struck out — in front of the Vogue editor.
The American Music Awards, an annual assessment of the state of the music industry. A chance for music superstars to mix, mingle and enjoy excessive gift bags. Also, another opportunity for Taylor Swift to pretend to be surprised when she wins something (she is super, super good at that). And as always, the clothes ranged from fantastic to fartworthy. Let’s take a look.
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. This year’s mega winner is Greg Chait, the man behind the collection The Elder Statesman. But while Greg may have won all the money, there was another battle being fought on the red carpet — it was the stylish against the total fashion messes. Let’s go to the photos…
In between the election and Hurricane Sandy and the other junk happening this week, Hollywood found another way to celebrate itself: the American Film Institute Festival, at which the new films “Ginger and Rosa” and “Lincoln” premiered. We thought we’d take a look and see what all the stars in attendance wore. Click on to check out all the crazy celeb fashion!
The Country Music Awards were held last night, and shocker! Taylor Swift didn’t win anything. For the first time in a gazillion years, audiences missed out on Swift’s patented “OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE I WON!” surprise face. Big winners included married country superstars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who must not have any mantle space left after their five combined wins last night.
But what you’re really wondering is: What did the winners (and losers) wear?
