Remember when we didn’t know anything about The Weeknd? When he was this anonymous shadowy persona, and we didn’t have any knowledge of him or his hair or his romances, and hadn’t read any dark and twisty Rolling Stone pieces on him yet? There were just those songs, hard to come across at first, and the haunting voice? I feel like that was The Weeknd who was performing last night, or maybe the Abel—that’s how he introduces himself. Full Story

Can we start with how that song won for Best Song? How f-cking uncomfortable too that it happened right after Gaga performed and had everyone sobbing in the aisles. It was AWKWARD in that theatre. Because, um, that was a sh-t Bond theme, wasn't it? Like there's no other way to say it! The song sucks! That was one of the most obvious moments of Academy disconnect and the influence of the old white male on the Oscars. Full Story

Not a princess dress, of course. That dress is a perfect example of what people mean when they say a piece of clothing is ‘art’. Lainey touched on it a little, but the outfits are a big deal that take a lot of effort and preparation—we can still acknowledge that, especially since they take a lot of people’s very hard work. Full Story

I should say "Oscar date weekend". Matt Damon had two dates all weekend: his wife, Luciana, and his best friend, Ben. On Friday there was a big WME party - Ben goes often. Three years ago I heard he was pretty drunk there and flirting hard with a tall blonde the entire time. This time he hung out with Matt and Lucy all night. Full Story

So my friend Matt made a joke a while back about "the five Chrises - Chris Pine, Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Bradley Cooper”. I laughed, for very many people would bungle which Chris was which, and while I can pat myself on the back for separating Evans from Pine and Pratt from Hems, I’d be really hard-pressed to come up with a Chris Evans project off the top of my head. Full Story

I loved Friday. I loved it so much because of Jennifer Garner. God that Vanity Fair article. Click here if you missed my post on it last week. She threw down a lesson in public scolding without getting your hands dirty. Full Story

I don’t mean anything bad by the title above. Julianne Moore is one of my favourites.  But we know why she was there—she was there to present the best actor award because the previous winner for best actress always is. She said nothing incendiary on the carpet. Her dress was fine—it was apparently worn on the Chanel Haute Couture runway by Kendall Jenner but I believe she’s supposed to be the ‘legit’ Kardashian so there’s no outrage there. Full Story

You can see it in everyone’s eyes at the Oscars—there are high stakes. The people who are nominated know their lives change if they win. The people who are presenting or posing on the red carpet know these are the pictures that will be used all year long—longer if they don’t get invited to something. Full Story

Olivia Wilde’s Oscar pleats

The pleating is gorgeous on this dress. And especially at the back, around the neck. Once upon a time, Olivia Wilde could have been a best dressed contender. Here’s why she wasn’t last night, though, and it has nothing to do with the design or Olivia but the overall association of the cut right down the middle and how the breasts are looking. Full Story
