Okay, so ostensibly we’re going to look at Shailene’s dress. Utterly ridiculous of course but, as we spend all our time here on the blog discussing, when you’re 22 is exactly when it’s time for utterly ridiculous. You want to be able to look back and say “what was I thinking?” It shows growth. Full Story

As IF. If I want to see a tall white guy with his hand all over the ass of his tall white wife, I’d go with Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. But here we are with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, their most public carpet ever, at the MET Gala last night, both wearing Gucci, her sponsor. Full Story

Elizabeth Olsen has the acting career. But her sisters know the fashion. Clearly she didn’t ask them for their advice. WHAT THE F-CK is happening here? Yes, as many of you have already observed, this is figure skating. And not even now figure skating but 1990s figure skating. It’s also Miu Miu. Full Story

Rachel McAdams wore a strapless, dusty rose Calvin Klein dress to the MET Gala and…I’m asleep. Sorry. I do love her. She’s a darling, a Canadian darling. But you can’t tell me this is a standout. You can’t tell me you’re still thinking about it. You stopped thinking about it half a second after you saw it. Full Story

Stacy Keibler is pregnant. I’m not sure that George Clooney knows this. She might not know if he knows this. So here she is at the ELLE Annual Women In Music celebration in LA last night trying her best to belly-cup her baby bump. This may be a world record. For what? The earliest in her pregnancy that a woman has ever attempted to belly-cup. Full Story

As you know, it was Amber Heard’s birthday yesterday. So her fiancé, Johnny Depp, had a lot of roses delivered to her. Fine. Then, last night, he took her to Bauman Rare Books. They picked out some poetry. After that, they probably went back to the hotel to watch black and white movies. Full Story

There’s a way to style-coordinate with your partner. We’ll see an example of that in a minute. And there’s a way to not style-coordinate with your partner. We’re seeing an example of that courtesy Johnny Depp and his fiancée. I’ll wait here until you can stop rolling your eyes. Full Story

Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg are engaged. And I’m really into that, even though only maybe two of you care. Here they are at Coachella this weekend. Now…ordinarily…Greenberg is hot. Please see Prime for reference or How To Make It In America. But right now, we have a problem. Full Story

I did not feel the urge to stick my hand down my pants and start rubbing at the sight of Zac Efron shirtless last night on stage at the MTV Awards. Especially not when he started flexing and saluting. He saluted a couple of times. It was bad. It was really, really bad. At that moment I texted Sasha: I am so embarrassed for him right now. Full Story

Big George Cambridge did not go out to sea with his parents yesterday in Auckland as they raced each other on the water. Princess Catherine’s team won. She teased her husband about it good-naturedly and the two had a pretty cute moment afterwards, teasing each other. And he reached out to hold her hand, showing how close they are, how much they enjoy each other, how comfortable they are with each other, how their bodies fit so well together, alone, at night, when the baby is asleep… Stop. Full Story

This week, Lainey wrote about celebrities being paid to dress like assholes (click here for a refresher), otherwise known as Coachella. It’s a mess – flower crowns, fringe boots (because why wouldn’t you wear suede boots in the desert?), floppy velvet hats - and I guess getting high and riding the Ferris wheel calls for a certain esthetic. Full Story

Amber Heard was photographed yesterday on the East Hampton set of When I Live My Life Over Again. Synopsis of film: Jude's life in New York City is going nowhere. Her career is a joke, her love life is in shambles, and she is having an affair with a married man who also happens to be her analyst. Full Story
