Here’s what kills me about awards shows – the stars actually get to be responsible for their own appearances. They spend their workdays being manicured and groomed within an inch of their lives – I have seen wardrobe people adjust actresses’ camel toes – but on a big night like this, they indulge their own tastes, and I just picture the costume designers of the shows at home, watching the carpet, and screaming as their carefully constructed image is decimated in seconds. Full Story

Prince William and his Catherine were in Singapore today, the first stop on their 9 day tour of South East Asia and the South Pacific. I really hate the middle aged way she wears her hair sometimes. Like in the afternoon, swept back on both sides and secured with those mini clips, she looks like she’s at least a decade older if not more. Full Story

Catherine Cambridge was not with Princes William and Harry as were agonising over men’s gymnastics yesterday and Team GB’s remarkable achievement. Instead she was probably getting ready to attend the UK’s Creative Industries Reception at the Royal Academy of Arts. Here’s Kate in dove grey and a regal updo which, I mean, I know she’s a royal person and these hairstyles are kind of expected from royal ladies but I dunno, it’s not my favourite and I also think it’s way too fancy for what she’s wearing. Full Story

Is that you, Joey Potter?

Check out Katie Holmes with her hair up in this purple dress for C Magazine. First of all, that’s an updo from 2002. But also... Total Joey Potter styles, right? Is that what Holmes & Yang, her clothing line, is for? Joey Potter? The C Magazine shoot happened a week before Katie blindsided Tom Cruise with her divorce filing. Full Story

This is some really, really harsh hair-shading. Think of your eyebrows and when you fill them in. That’s only a small section though. Now imagine doing that over your entire head. The result is John Travolta last night at the AFI event to honour Shirley MacLaine. I’ve mentioned this before but a long time ago and there have been new readers since: Michelle and I interviewed John Travolta at the Super Bowl a few years ago. Full Story

I love the look of a jacket dress and nothing else. If I had reason to, and breasts that could stand on their own like that, I would do the same. The problem here is the hair. She's grown up enough with the bare chest, she doesn't need to add another 20 years to herself with a middle-aged blow out and much, MUCH too much eye makeup. Full Story

There is nowhere she won’t go

Was it always like this with Jennifer Love Hewitt and she was just better at hiding it before? Or did she grow into being a loser gradually? I watched Party Of Five. Back then I thought she was so interesting and sweet and pretty and engaged to Carson Daly and not pathetic and crazy. This is the downside of accessibility. Full Story

A heavy fringe and a huge ring

Jessica Biel took her thick fringe and her large ring to the Laker game yesterday. You don’t go to a Laker game, courtside, without the expectation of being photographed. If she didn’t want you to see, and talk about it, she would have not worn it. The first photos of the ring were released last week, just in time to make it into all the weeklies on Wednesday. Full Story

It’s not that I hate this hairstyle in general, it’s just that I think it’s a terrible fit with the dress. Wait. Maybe I do hate it in general. Too severe and harsh? It just...did nothing for her. No surprise that Berenice Bejo was in Elie Saab. That much was foreshadowed during Paris Fashion Week. Click here Full Story

And while the Oscars are about celebrating last year’s top movies, new ones keep coming and we’ll be previewing a few that are arriving in theatres this month that have links – some loose and some not so loose – to Oscar. Full Story
