After Scarlett Johansson debuted her new tattoo, Amelia and I both didn’t get it. We had an in-depth conversation about it, where we came to the realization that the reasons we didn’t like it were: A) it was exactly the kind of tattoo we expected Scarjo to get (the same way we expected her to release a Tom Waits cover album) and B) something about it seemed like she was trying too hard to demonstrate her street cred (the same way her Tom Waits cover album did).
We say this as two tattooed women who both have Chinese character tattoos we’re embarrassed of. I have two other tattoos, which I love because they have deep meaning to me. Maybe “Lucky You” has deep meaning to Scarjo, who knows? That’s not important. What’s important is this: Scarjo and her “Lucky You” tattoo inspired a much longer reverie about other celebrity tattoos we are expecting to see any day now. When they come true, just remember, we called it first.
As much as we hate to admit it, Taylor Swift’s got some great style, y’all. She has her awards show thing down, but she also knows how to rock a casual look. Take this ensemble she wore when she popped by the BBC 2 offices on Wednesday, to gush and act surprised that her album is number one in England. Her exact word was “unbelievable,” but we all know that’s Tay-Tay for “of course you love my record, I’m amazing. P.S. Jake Gyllenhaal, suck it.” In any case, we’ve got the look down — including the cute kitty cat-inspired French Connection polka dot sweater. All the details after the jump!

Click through to check out 15 stars–from Channing Tatum to Taylor Swift–rocking plaid pieces…
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?
Taylor Swift’s new album Red comes out tomorrow, which means she’s out and about on a mega promotional blitz (I heard two radio interviews and read at least five articles about her before I’d even finished my coffee this morning). It’s yet to be seen whether her entire press tour will be color coordinated, but she definitely started things off on the right foot with this retro red dress, matching lipstick, understated accessories, and nude heels.
