Some things witnessed secondhand are so cringeworthy as to incite actual physical pain, and this 53-second clip of Marion Cotillard‘s PR girl snubbing a soft-spoken reporter is of that very ilk. Bryna Rifkin of ID-PR, the publicist and red carpet handler for Cotillard as well as other well-liked celebs like Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jennifer Lawrence, was caught on camera belittling a journalist at the Toronto Film Festival. The clip shows the reporter in question informing Rifkin that she had been given permission to ask Cotillard a few questions about her new movie “Blood Ties,” before Rifkin informs the reporter that she was never given permission to do so, and oh, by the way, she’s in control, and she says no. Good lord, that smug smirk, those angry faces — this certainly isn’t the first time Rifkin’s played this card, and she looks more than happy to do so. Who would have thought the woman responsible for so many seemingly affable celebrities could “Mean Girl” with the best of them? [Page Six]

This “Great Gatsby” movie’s been supposed to be coming out for, like, a year now, and I’m super happy it’s almost here, mostly so I can stop receiving PR pitches every five seconds about “Great Gatsby”-style or “Great Gatsby”-themed accessories, the vast majority of which are not at all related to anything Roaring ’20s in the slightest. That said, I’m very excited to see, you know, the actual “Great Gatsby” costumes, designed by Miuccia Prada and her team of worker bees.
And if the clothes worn at the New York premiere of the film are any indication, we have a lot to look forward to. Click through to see some of the best (and worst) on the red carpet…
Hollywood’s biggest stars absolutely looked their best at last night’s Academy Awards — so much so that we had a difficult time finding much we didn’t like. So for the most part, we’re going to focus on what we loved. We already showed you those wearing stunning sequins and princess gowns — and here are seven women (and men!) who opted for beautiful blues.
Jennifer Aniston is usually a style no-brainer. She always looks good. And her hair? Her hair is incredible! But this black and white number she wore to the 6th American Cinematheque Award Honoring Ben Stiller — I’m not really feeling it. It reminds me a bit too much of the Jessica McClintock prom gowns I used to page through in my mom’s JC Penney catalog when I was a kid. Which has a certain nostalgia, sure, but isn’t very 2012-appropriate. But what say you?
I love Emma Watson in every single way, whether she’s Hermione Granger or, well, Emma Watson. (I apologize, but I will never let go of her, or my, Potter past.) She’s beautiful, British, smart, stylish, and rocks a daring pixie crop like a pro while flipping the proverbial finger to the suggestion that “men don’t like it” — what’s not to love? “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” was practically the bible of my Troubled Outcast youth, and there is a good chance I am going to see the movie in theaters multiple times. You know, for nostalgia’s sake. Keep reading »
Last night, the 2nd annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards were held. The big winners were … well, there were a lot of winners. But Christina Hendricks and Jon Hamm were honored for their work on “Mad Men,” Tina Fey won for “30 Rock,” and even Danny Devito took home a prize (the “Television Icon Award,” natch).
But what were they wearing? Click through to find out.
Alexa Chung usually nails it sartorially — after all, she’s known for her quirky style — but even our finest dressers cop to a miss from time to time. The combination of hot-off-the-runway Christopher Kane dress, buttoned-up white shirt with metallic embellishments, and tasseled loafer-esque pumps is certainly true to her eccentric, English boy-meets-Gallic girl aesthetic, and I really like each individual piece, but this incohesive look just isn’t doing it for me. Are you into the kooky mix of elements, or have you seen better on Alexa?
The Met Ball is, in many ways, bigger and brighter than all of the awards shows combined. While the Academy honors excellence in film, the gala honors glamour in its purest form. Each year there’s a “topic” of celebration — last night extolled the parallels of Miuccia Prada to the late great Elsa Schiaparelli; last year’s subject was the inimitable Lee Alexander McQueen — and each year it’s up to the young and the beautiful to bring it. Good sense and humility takes a night off, and the most illustrious names in both the silver screen and the backstage dust off their boldest, most eye-catching, sometimes straight up cray looks. It is the Met Gala, after all, and if you’re not planning on blowing the roof off of the fashion stratosphere, then why bother going at all? Keep reading »
Katy Perry is an unexpected addition to our Well Played list with a serious departure from her trademark candy-coated-crack styling. I’m kind of feeling the dark purple hair, and this Temperley London dress is just stunning on Katy, so much so that I’m even willing to forgive her inch-thick pancake makeup. A nude lip with this look would have pulled it together seamlessly. But I have to ask: what’s with the strap hanging off her shoulder? Girlfriend is practically begging for a wardrobe malfunction.
Germans, God bless ‘em, they always go that extra mile in the fashion department. Take Teuton Helene Fischer, spotted here at Germany’s Echo Awards show, in this white and sparkemotion ensemble.
