I know doing a Well Played post about Heidi Klum on the beach is painfully predictable, like, “Oh really? Heidi Klum looked great at the beach? YOU DON’T SAY.” But this picture caught my eye because beach outfits and swimsuit cover-ups are always, always brightly colored floral prints, and then here’s Heidi chilling on the beach with her bodyguard boyfriend in this black and white striped Beetlejuice-y dress. It’s an unexpected choice, and it looks awesome. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
BLAAAAANG RAAAAAANG. Sorry, what? I just can’t contain my excitement about the new Sofia Coppola movie, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival today. Tonight? Time zones, whatever! Emma Watson stars as Nikki, the role based off of real-life ringleader Alexis Neiers. (Unfamiliar with Alexis? Allow me to point you in the direction of the undisputed best moment in reality TV history.) Emma wore this super-cute Christopher Kane mini to the film’s photocall, and it is safe to say that she looks neither like Hermione Granger nor her “Bling Ring” character. She does, however, look fantastic.
Amy Poehler was a picture of perfection in her white and blue lace dress at the NBC Upfront Presentation this week. Paired with a bouncy curled bob, bold cobalt pumps, and a slightly mischievous smile, this look is just so Amy. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
In the midst of all this ongoing Johnny Depp/Amber Heard dramz, I’m always happy to see Vanessa Paradis show up somewhere looking like her badass, sexy-French-witch self, unconcerned with silly Johnny and his totally gratuitous, overdone accessories (nine scarves at once!). Here she is at a Chanel exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, because of course. Her hair is so perfect. So. Damn. Perfect. Team Vanessa, alllllllll the way.
I can’t wear hats. I have a head the size of a middle school Civics classroom’s globe, and hats always look, uh, interesting on me. Consequently, I’m always covetous of people who can wear wide-brimmed hats and look totally amazing. Like, say, Florence Welch, seen here strolling in NYC with nary a care in her hat-covered head. That, plus the occult-ish, purple eye-designed coat, makes her the perfect modern witch. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
Kim Kardashian’s airport outfits usually consist of 6-inch stiletto heels, stiff peplum tops, and leather pants so tight that if you look at them for too long you can get a sympathy yeast infection. She’s stuck to this formula even as her pregnancy has progressed, and she always looks so profoundly uncomfortable (and even a little sad?), tottering between terminals in spike heels. But today is a new day, my friends. Kim Kardashian wore this cute, comfy, breathable outfit to the airport. Leggings! A soft chambray shirt! Flat sandals! Is this proof that hell has frozen over? Maybe, but I don’t even care. She looks great. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Sometimes models off duty default to totally scruffy and unkempt. It makes sense: If you spend your days ensconced in fancy clothes and high heels, you’re probably gonna want to go casual in your private time. Not so for model and Rachel-a-like Erin O’Connor, who was caught leaving London’s Vogue Festival (we’re picturing funnel cake in Givenchy heels) in a (we think it’s) Marni skirt and turtleneck. She looks ready to stroll through a 1940s Italian city scene or something. In any case, we’re coveting that skirt. [Pacific Coast News]
Hey y’all, I just wanna give a shoutout to Zoe Saldana, who has been absolutely killing it everywhere she goes. Between two “Star Trek Into Darkness” events this week, and the MTV Movie Awards earlier this month, lady has been looking ahhhhhh-mazing. These looks are all seriously difficult to pull off, but she is Seriously Doing It. I can’t remember the last time I was this wowed by a star’s fashion prowess. Again: killing it.
Hot damn, Ellen and Portia are a beautiful couple, aren’t they? My favorite thing about them is that every time they’re together, they both just light up–they wear their adoration for each other on their sleeve and I really admire that. OK, enough fangirl-ing about their relationship, let’s talk about their outfits! For the “Arrested Development” premiere red carpet (side note: OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING), Ellen chose a sleek gray suit while Portia vamped it up in a tight black dress and a funky pompadour. They both look stylish, happy, and confident, which is the very essence of “Well Played.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
It seems like heavy, chunky scarves are kind of a year round accessory in Los Angeles. Here’s Ms. Selena Gomez in a scarf, sandals and boyfriend jeans, on her way to the gym. It’s a good spring look, because you can easily add a layer with a cardigan, or strip down to a tank top if you’re having drinks at a sidewalk cafe. Which is what we imagine Selena did after her gym stopover. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
