The cast of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was in Rome this weekend to promote the film. The movie comes out in August. I am obsessed with Alicia Vikander’s dress. Also her tan. Anyway, as you can see, U.N.C.L.E.’s two leads, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, are working matching beards right now. Full Story

Bradley Cooper was at the MET Gala even though he skipped the carpet. Inside, he and Irina Shayk kept their distance. He was seen talking to JLO before leaving. Afterwards though he and Irina were both at Rihanna’s party with Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Madonna, Miley, JB… And at one point, according to Page Six Full Story

She’s the one I’ve been alluding to the whole time when asking the question – why are you there if you’re not there to play? Joanna described it as a state dinner dress. She’s right. Reese Witherspoon, in this red column, is going to the White House. It’s a fine dress for a White House dinner. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence’s two MET dresses

Hated what Jennifer Lawrence wore to the MET Gala main event, especially as one of the co-hosts. Is it limiting, this Dior deal? Duana wrote earlier about Emily Blunt, about assuming Emily was more fashion forward than she actually is because, hilariously, she was in Devil Wears Prada. And I feel like I’ve done the same with Jennifer because her personality is just so not aligned with what she’s been wearing. Full Story

You know I love Emily Blunt. And you further know Emily Blunt can take a fashion risk.  Well…. I wrote that sentence, and then I found myself in the position of having to back it up, and actually there isn’t that much. Like, she wore a bright green gown to the SAGs a few years back, and there’s a shot of her from one of the Your Sister’s Sisters premieres where she’s wearing what looks like the black and blue version of The Dress – but I realize that Emily Blunt is not actually the fashion risk-taker I have been giving her credit for. Full Story

It’s Versace. But it could also have been Zuhair Murad. What’s the difference? Beading held together by pantyhose – who can tell it apart? Doesn’t matter if there’s a dragon because f-ck, I’m so over it. I’m so over JLO in these kinds of dresses. I’m so over “body-con” as a substitute for imagination. Full Story

So… Dakota Johnson. In Chanel. Nothing in the dress speaks to the theme of the MET Gala. And then you look at her eyes. And because it’s the MET Gala and the theme is China: Through The Looking Glass, and her dress isn’t China at all, now I’m wondering if she and her makeup artist were like, we’ll just give you some slanty eyes and you’re good to go! I just spent several minutes looking at photos of her through the Fifty Shades press tour. Full Story

Rachel Weisz: Worst MET Disappointment

Was it a last minute decision? Like, she wasn’t intending to go but decided to go anyway and just yanked something serviceable out of the closet that didn’t need to be pressed? Then again, it’s Chanel. I’ve no doubt Rachel Weisz has some Chanel lying around but this is couture so… it probably wasn’t yanked from anywhere. Full Story

Kate Hudson: Worst Gold at the MET

As I noted in the open, gold, red, and green, these are the favoured Chinese colours. There was a lot of gold, red, and green at the MET Gala. Some of it done well, with just the right amount of Chinese cheesy, and some of it… well… Kate Hudson in Michael Kors was a mess. The problem is the hair. Full Story

Please note that yellow is not gold. On this night, it doesn’t substitute for gold. Here’s what Duana texted me about Kristen Wiig’s dress: Also f-ck off, Kristen Wiig. Stop it now. And my response: That yellow made me ANGRY. Angry because … Prabal Gurung isn’t usually this unremarkable. Full Story

Not gonna rage too hard on Emma Roberts for the dumbass chopsticks in her hair. You know why? Her dress is punishment enough. She’s like the Kate Upton of 2015. You remember Kate Upton’s appearances at the MET Gala, don’t you? They’re tragic. When Kate Upton shows up at the MET Gala, she’s almost always in a “here just wear this” dress. Full Story

What time is it in New York right now (as I’m writing this)? 11:54am Blake Lively is on the morning circuit to promote The Age Of Adaline. She’s changed… I don’t know…. I’ve lost count how many times. It’s a lot of times. My least favourite is the pink and black wrap dress. Full Story

Blake Lively at The Age Of Adaline New York premiere last night. She posed on the carpet with the Khaleesi’s boyfriend, Michiel Huisman in a red Monique Lhuillier with a leather wraparound and a feathered skirt. ENOUGH WITH THE FEATHERED SKIRTS. Ryan Reynolds was back in Vancouver working on Deadpool. Full Story

Bradley Cooper covers TIME 100, is Single & Fabulous?

“This…. is quite a headshot.” That’s the title of the email I sent to Lainey this morning, after seeing Bradley Cooper on the cover of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People list. Just take a look at the photo. Is he worthy? Sure. Coops has four Oscar nominations to his name from the past three years… and he's likely to earn a Tony nomination for his terrific work in The Elephant Man too. Full Story
