The 10 Most (and Least) Oscar-Worthy Gowns from Haute Couture Fashion Week

Edited by

As many a starlet is aware, looks don’t always translate well from the runway to the red carpet. Nowhere is this more true than in haute couture. Sure, this gown costs $35,000, was constructed by a team of half-blind old ladies whose skills are so specialized they can be classified as endangered species and contains actual diamonds, but Joan Rivers still thinks you look like a refugee from some drag queen concentration camp. No, events like the Oscars require a little discretion and the simpler you keep it, the better. Of course, there are exceptions, but not every actress is a Charlize Theron, a Cate Blanchett, a Nicole Kidman or a Tilda Swinton — risk-takers who can pull off haute couture with the greatest of ease. For the rest of ‘em, here are 10 safe gowns sure to please along with 10 only the brave of soul and intrepid of style should even consider.

Vogue Italia Takes a Page Out of the Joan Rivers Playbook

Edited by

QVC and HSN, once the domain of Marie Osmond‘s creepy fetishistic dolls and the legendary Joan Rivers Classics Collection has gotten a recent injection of diva with Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey taking to the air to hock their perfumes, clothing lines and pregnancy stories. For its first issue of the year, Vogue Italia, perhaps sensing a trend, tapped Steven Meisel and Karl Templer for this brilliant send-up of the home shopping networks featuring leggy ladies Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Sigrid Agren, Caroline Trentini, Gertrud HegelundDaria Strokous and Natasha Poly. And if that weren’t enough to get your collective hearts beating in anticipation, there’s a…video. Listen closely and you can almost here Joan screaming from beyond (L.A.) about the only things these skinny bitches are eating up is her goddamn screentime. Video and gallery after the jump!

FashionIndie Straps on Its Glass Slippers to Go to the Ball

Edited by

Last Friday, Nicole, Mac and Amanda helped me pick out a suitable black tie outfit to attend the New York Botanical Garden’s 12th Annual Winter Wonderland Ball. Considering the majority of my wardrobe consists of  harem pants and the occasional billowy blouse, my closet was ill-equipped to meet the challenge. Thus we made an Indie field trip over to our local H&M and in a matter of minutes we had whipped up a say-something formal look — all for under $200, thank you. I was glad we had made the detour as, upon walking in, I was immediately confronted by a room full of gorgeous gowns and immaculate tuxedos. The Bronx, even in the alleged claws of Jennifer Lopez,  had never seemed so glamorous.

Man Eater: Jennifer Lopez Is Currently Selling All of Her Marital Goods

Edited by

As we all know by now, Jennifer Lopez isn’t the “till death do us part” marriage type of gal. From one actor to back up dancer the next year, she’s not one to settle. In a normal world the typical break up arrangement is to remove all memories of your relationship, and if you’re J.Lo you especially get rid of all the lavishing diamonds.

Hedy Lamarr: Orgasm Pioneer, Hollywood Bombshell, Wartime Inventor

Edited by

They just don’t make movie stars like they used to. The Elizabeth Taylors of the world are all gone and we’re left with the Lindsay Lohans, the Bradley Coopers and the occasional Angelina Jolies, sandwiched somewhere between the Snookis and the Kim Kardashians. But back in the good ole days of the Hollywood studio system, you couldn’t throw a tantrum without hitting a genuine movie star. And that star could legitimately sing, dance and act — none of that half-assed Jennifer Lopez business. In the case of Hedy Lamarr, not only was she a gorgeous screen siren — but she escaped the Nazis, was the first woman to simulate an orgasm on-screen and basically invented the basis for Bluetooth. Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan can’t stay out of jail long enough to simulate a career.

It’s OK to Be Fooled by the Rocks That She’s Got, Jenny’s Not Stepping Foot on the Block

Edited by

A friend of mine always sees red whenever the Fiat 500 commercial with Jennifer Lopez comes on. As he puts it, ”Give me a break, bitch. Why don’t you just own the fact that you are not still ‘Jenny from the Block,’ that you have no clue where the hell this block is, but if you did you would buy it and burn it down?” Well turns out J.Lo used a body-double in that ad since she refused to go anywhere near the Bronx.

RED CARPET REPORT CARD: 2011 American Music Awards

Edited by

To my surprise as I sleepily browsed my Twitter feed this morning, the 2011 American Music Awards were on last night. I couldn’t care less about the crappy music being awarded, so I immediately searched for disappointing red carpet photos. And to neither my nor anyone’s surprise, I found some pretty disappointing red carpet photos. But what’s an awards show without a Red Carpet Report Card commentary? Check out the gallery below of the best, worst and most snooze-worthy looks from last night.
