Let us officially have a moratorium on all garments made from bandages, ribbons, seat belts, ropes, tape, cotton balls. When you see Sandi Thom disobeying these edicts, it's enough to make you think that everyone in the world isn't hanging on your every arbitrary word!

To all you dames who like to see a man in a kilt. Please take into account that apparently it makes them miserable. And Dario Franchitti's Scottish.

Sorry to ruin fantasies or whatnot, but Ed Westwick looks like Jimmy Fallon's bratty kid brother.

The Glinda gown is very Gwen Stefani, no?
