I am the rare Brooklyn-dwelling twenty-something female who has seen no more than three (3) episodes of the hit HBO series, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate how nicely those “Girls” clean up, right? I’m actually really loving Lena Dunham‘s sparkly look here most of all, and I will never stop wanting to be/be best friends with Jemima Kirke. Maybe 2014 will be the year I finally get over my weird aversion (too close to home!) to the show and tune in. Maybe?
Abigail Breslin is young, beautiful, and famous, so naturally she has tons of designers tryna dress her all the time. That is exactly the reason why I’m a little confused as to why she chose this particular beast of a striped cutout dress to the Los Angeles premiere (so, like, the BIG ONE!) of “August: Osage County”. I would say that the body-hugging shape is truly great on her, and her hair and makeup look awesome, but whoa, I’m a little distracted by EVERYTHING ELSE GOING ON. Nothing like a metallic silver boob tube to make you forget that someone even has a face. Also: earrings???? I propose a new stylist for Abigail, one that will dress her like the sassy, youthful 17-year-old she is and not like my very lovely but slightly older grandmother, who is always looking for the right pair of clip-on earrings that will “cover her earlobes.”
Juliette Binoche is friggin’ flawless in that effortlessly unattainable French way. My feelings for her range from “casual love” to “total obsession.” That said, I would like to have a word with whatever stylist encouraged her to hit the red carpet in this EXTREMELY terrible, EXTREMELY labial dress. It is the consummate union of both depressingly unflattering and aesthetically displeasing. Do not like. [Photo Credit: Fame/Flynet]
Who said wearing your wedding dress had to be a one-off deal? Not Keira Knightley, that’s for sure. The actress, who wed musician James Righton this past May (center), rocked her repurposed wedding dress at an event in London last night (left). Worn over some sort of long-sleeved mesh garment, the Chanel frock looked pretty perfect on the blue carpet, but this isn’t the first time Knightley has sported the look off the altar — she actually first inaugurated the tulle number back in 2008, when she wore it with black tights to a BAFTA awards dinner (right). Five years ago, her wedding, and today … it’s safe to say Keira really, really loves this dress. [Photo Credit: WENN]
I’ve been surfing the web all day (just doing, ahem, my job) and have witnessed a myriad of very mixed reactions to Jennifer Lawrence‘s latest look. Some love it, some think it’s just alright, some think it is an absolute TRAVESTY. But we’re pretty unanimous over here — Amelia and I both love it. Jen has had her fair share of hits and misses during the “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” press circuit so far, but never once has she played it safe, so you’ve got to give the girl credit if nothing else! Click through to see the rest of the looks J. Law has worn on the “Catching Fire” press circuit!
Did you guys watch the CMA Awards last night? I didn’t get to see the actual show, although according to Katie, I didn’t miss much. But come on, the red carpet fashion is what everyone really cares about, so let’s delve into the sartorial choices of country’s superstars, shall we? Who wins the crown for best color? Whose vintage style is on point? Who is most likely to be mistaken for a Vegas lounge singer? Who seems to be trying really hard to impress your mom? Click through to find out!
I’m really feeling the love for Jessica Biel today, probably because I watched her 1998 classic “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” (also starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas!!!) over the weekend. What a film! So while I’m aboard the Biel train, I figure I better congratulate her on the extraordinarily well-played look she wore the Museum of Modern Art’s annual Film Benefit. This white Chanel frock, if pretty, is unremarkable on its own, but the bronze shoulder chains and unexpected burgundy [Wait, are they burgundy or bronze? -- Amelia] pumps take it above and beyond. Turquoise eyeliner keeps the whole thing playful, and her hair, as always, is something I would like very much to pet. Well done!
Wellllllll … that’s one way to wear clothes! I am generally on board with all things Emma Watson, including and especially her sartorial choices, but I just can’t with this one. Fresh off the Balenciaga Resort 2014 runway, it’s strikingly similar to this look worn by Kristen Stewart almost a year ago, when Nicolas Ghesquière was still designing for Balenciaga. Alexander Wang has since taken his place, so it strikes me as strange that these outfits are so alike. Hmmmm! Maybe there’s some totally logical Fashion explanation that’s gone right over my head. That’s probably the case. Anyway, we know how I’m feeling about this look, and it’s not good. What about you?
Of all the international film festivals, we imagine that the Venice International Film Festival is the tastiest. That’s because it’s centered in Venice, which is home to some of the best pizza and gelato on the planet. Not that we could imagine attendees like Frieda Pinto and Carey Mulligan partaking, per se. No, no, they’re too busy walking the red carpet during events like the Miu Miu Women’s Tales party, a celebration of female filmmakers and women’s stories. Attendees included, from left to right: “Downton Abbey”‘s Michelle Dockery, Gabrielle Union, Carey Mulligan, and Frieda Pinto. All of them must have gotten a memo about red and black, because each showed up in relatively the same color scheme. But whose look do you like best?
“Blue Jasmine” was incredible, and Cate Blanchett is a dream, and I would never, not in a million years, be caught dead saying a cross word about her, and I love and embrace this odd spiderweb dress — but GODDAMN if the weird, vague, is it really there or am I imagining this face on the right side hasn’t been scaring the shit out of me all day. SO FRIGGIN’ CREEPY. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
