90% of you and an entire fleet of MiniVans will disagree… Blake’s was the safer choice. Pretty and soothing in blue and blonde and boring as f-ck and a cheap slit too. It’s Versace. I’m asleep. Like when Serena talks in her one voice, incapable of modulation. Lulls you into a coma. Full Story

Alba outclassed

She really was. Or, more accurately, perhaps it was her designer Jason Wu. This dress seems like it’s 2 seasons old and was last worn at some Us Weekly party by Lauren Conrad. That hurts. And the tights, not feeling the tights. On the plus side: am all over the lipstick. Fuchsia looks good on the Alba Demon who smiled almost like she meant it. Full Story

She’s fired. For many reasons, not just last night. The Xenu sympathising doesn’t sit well. And then the whole rehab for “depression” business which, as you’d expect, nobody bought especially not after Sundance that year when she was passing out Lindsay Lohan styles at every party. Full Story

Love them both. In fact, I probably love Rihanna’s more than Lake Bell’s. Lake’s is super flattering and she’s more beautiful here than I’ve ever seen her but it’s also distinctly … stripper-y. Rihanna though, Rihanna is pure drama. Outrage? Let me guess – you hate it. Full Story

She wore Dior and brought the girls out. My Marion has great breasts, non? Accompanied by John Galliano, sexy and sweet at the same time, and perfectly styled, every detail especially the sideswept hair which I’ve never tried but have always wanted to and for 5 minutes considered cutting my hair but then what would happen on all the days in between, when it’s boring and flat at a no-man’s length and, obviously, I don’t have her face? Am sad Marion did not come with Guillaume Canet. Full Story

Worst Hair: Anne Hathaway

Ugh. Make it go away. If I look too long it’s like a squirrel is attacking my eyes. An old cranky squirrel, bitter at life, two divorces already, a third on the way, and maybe a little drinking problem. Or her big-haired, Texas beard in Brokeback Mountain. Either way, why would Anne Hathaway age herself 20 years on this night when 14 year old models are walking around barely able to support themselves on their gangly legs? Dumb. Full Story

First the newlyweds Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady – she’s in Versace, he’s adorable, and it’s all about the legs and the shoes. Shoe Porn! Sigh…this is the beach hair I’ve always wanted. It’s what happens when you’re Gisele Bundchen. Like she really doesn’t have to try all that hard. Full Story
