Lots of Mermaid Blues and Cool Teens Being Cool at the Teen Choice Awards

Sunday night’s Teen Choice Awards, aside from provoking An Old to do a quick Google search every seven minutes to identify some YouTube boy or Nickelodeon cutie, were as humane as they were tame: even the most awkward jokes and presentations were tolerable at a time limit of two hours. » 8/17/15 12:45pm 8/17/15 12:45pm

Everyone Tried to Out-Model Each Other at the Paper Towns LA Premiere

Paper Towns is a new magical-teen-love movie based on the book by Fault in Our Stars author John Green, likely to be a summer hit. It also stars supermodel Cara Delevingne—it’s expected to launch her film career, actually—so the LA premiere over the weekend featured several models, modeling. » 7/21/15 11:00am 7/21/15 11:00am

Sparkles, Lace & a Whole Lotta Muscle On the ESPYs Red Carpet

Why don’t sports events have red carpets more often? Wednesday night’s ESPYs was a blast to look through, and not just because the most prominent trend was glittery, sparkly, splashy sequined gowns. The amount of physically strong, happy looking athletic idols on the photo line was inspiring, and their clear… » 7/16/15 4:40pm 7/16/15 4:40pm

Summer Whites and Glittery Glamour at the BET Awards

Last night’s 35-hour-long BET Awards performance featured a reunion performance by Puff Daddy and the Family, which could have served as an overarching theme for the dress code: summer whites are so hot right now, and half the attendees could have headed straight to the Hamptons after the ceremony for a Diddy White… » 6/29/15 5:00pm 6/29/15 5:00pm

Vibrant Color, Icy Lace, and a Gaggle of Supermodels At the Tonys

The Tony Awards red carpet looked a leeeeetle different than it may have in recent years: it was filled to the brim with A-list models and fashion designers, so many their presence threatened to overshadow the theatre stars themselves. Why the sudden shift? Why, Anna Wintour, of course. » 6/08/15 6:40pm 6/08/15 6:40pm

Everyone On Earth (Really! Everyone) Shined Bright at the CFDA Awards

On Monday, practically every fucking person on planet earth dressed up for the mighty CFDA Awards, the evening the Council of Fashion Designers of America and their benevolent queen Anna Wintour knight the great purveyors of high fashion clothing you and I will be wearing three months from now, in their Zara… » 6/02/15 5:50pm 6/02/15 5:50pm

Cannes Red Carpet Style Is Everything You've Ever Dreamed & Then Some

I am in a perpetual state of mild rage at red carpet style, particularly in Hollywood: with the proliferation of stylists, and favors to designers who are already established, rare is the celebrity who shows up not looking boringly perfect and perfectly boring. The worst offender by far is Reese Witherspoon, whose… » 5/15/15 6:00pm 5/15/15 6:00pm

'No, My Feet Are Fine!' And Other Met Gala 2015 Afterparty Tales

After all the fêting that was unleashed at Monday night’s Met Gala, clearly the only thing to do was to fête some more. Afterparties sprang up all across the city, in locales as varied as The Mark—the posh hotel across from the Met, where Solange is lamping above—and semi-random clubs like Up&Down, which is right in… » 5/05/15 11:50am 5/05/15 11:50am

The Gowns Were All Sheer Eleganza at the Latin Billboard Awards

Did you watch the Latin Billboards last night? I watched some of my favorites—ROMEO, J.Lo’s Selena tribute with la familia Quintanilla, above—but switched somewhere between the unrepentant and perpetual uplifting of boring-ass Enrique Iglesias and the baroque guitar duel between Juanes and Carlos Santana (both are… » 5/01/15 6:20pm 5/01/15 6:20pm

Sparkling Frocks, Formal Pants & Selfies Galore at the Time 100 Gala

Time celebrated the 100 most important people who would be advantageous to put on its cover last night, as well as many others. They called it a Gala as they do every year, but for the most part attendees dressed in fancy-casual gowns—not a lot of glimmer and glitz—which was fine. Also, Kanye performed a 20-minute… » 4/22/15 4:50pm 4/22/15 4:50pm

Hot Pink and Lichtenstein Pants at the Academy of Country Music Awards

The Academy of Country Music Awards honored a host of Nashville (and Nashville-by-proxy) superstars on Sunday night, and the carpet was an interesting prospect. As a country event, it’s overall more conservative than even the Grammys (which at this point are conservative as hell, mind you). But the relative… » 4/21/15 9:50am 4/21/15 9:50am

L. Ron Hubbard Chic & Rihanna in Money Green at the iHeartRadio Awards

There is nothing more boss than singing a song about getting money wearing a kelly-green muppet fur jacket and an emerald Versace nameplate necklace, but we can't all be Rihanna. At Sunday's iHeart Radio Awards, music stars and those peripherally related as such used the opportunity to dress baller-casual, plus the… » 3/30/15 5:10pm 3/30/15 5:10pm

Fancy Fashion at Last Night's Fancy Mad Men and Home Parties

It's Spring and you know what that means: the television is about to bombard us with Sunday night shows that will impede upon our collective ability to go outside and actually enjoy the Springness of it all. (Looking at you, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and Best Bars in America.) But with great power comes great… » 3/23/15 1:00pm 3/23/15 1:00pm

Chill Elegance and Babely Dudes At the Insurgent Premiere

Insurgent premiered in New York City last night—or sorry, rather: The Divergent Series: Insurgent: Shailene Woodley Vehicle: And Cool Opportunity to Flex Our Colons: You Ain't About This Life—and the stars were out to partay on this occasion of the release of a blockbuster sci-fi film! » 3/17/15 1:00pm 3/17/15 1:00pm

So Much Good Real-Life Style at the Brit Awards

I am constantly hammering this point because it's true: British fashion right now is, on the whole, so much more creative and interesting than American fashion. That's certainly true on the runway, but it's also true on the red carpet, even moreso with musicians, because on the whole British women aren't as bananas… » 2/25/15 10:04pm 2/25/15 10:04pm

Oscars Afterparties: Multiply the Glamour, Add Many More Pants

Last night's Oscars were a study in not preemptively falling asleep and/or not throwing crap at the TV screen for all the cheap-shot jokes, but at least we had the spectacle of gowns and tuxes, sparkles and luxe fabrics, to distract us from the absolute shitshow. Providing some small consolation for having spent… » 2/23/15 1:30pm 2/23/15 1:30pm

All the Enviable Looks at Essence's Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Essence held its eighth annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon in Beverly Hills on Thursday. Two-thirds of the outfits have already been stolen by me and I'm not sorry. Here are some of the outfits—originally worn by the likes of Laverne Cox, Tracee Ellis Ross and Teyonah Parris—that are now in my closet. » 2/20/15 2:10pm 2/20/15 2:10pm
