 So, in today’s unpopular opinion, I hate grace. I hate that it’s the first trait we apply to women who don’t scream their sexiness out all over the place. I hate that it’s used as a synonym for “pretty and polite and thin” but it’s supposed to have a loftier meaning than that. Full Story

So he butchered Idina Menzel’s name. He f-cked that sh-t up so bad that within minutes there was a Twitter account for @AdeleDazim. I am still laughing about this. But it might be a little mean. Actually, laughing about people having trouble reading is totally mean. Full Story

There was some pink at the Oscars…and all of it was sh-t, but the worst of the sh-t was Jada Pinkett Smith. It’s Versace. I feel like we’ve seen it before. Or maybe it’s because it looks like what Sofia Vergara wears over and over and over again. I hate it. I hate the colour, I hate the material, and I especially hate the way the sweep over the shoulder goes all the way down her back. Full Story

Whenever one of my friends starts to get all anxiety about what to wear to a party, I always tell them to remember that at 99% of social gatherings, all that matters is what you look like from the chest up. Parties are so crowded that the slightly too-big pants or scuffed shoes are not going to be noticed. Full Story

One of my favourite things to say is that “the Academy doesn’t let riffraff onto its red carpet” which is why I didn’t believe for a minute that Rob Ford would actually be coming to the Oscars. And then Kellan Lutz showed up. Thing is, I’m not sure actually sure Kellan Lutz went inside. Full Story

Pharrell, you beautiful creature, you. You are the embodiment of exactly what it’s supposed to be to be a celebrity. You show up to places, and you are pleased as hell with your accomplished-yet-relaxed-appearing life, and you wear still more compelling-yet-not-serious stuff, and you’re also – almost incidentally – phenomenally successful. Full Story

When’s the last time you remember seeing this much cleavage from Reese Witherspoon? Have you ever seen a side breast from Reese Witherspoon? If I were her, and after 3 children, I’d be showing side breast too. Have we found ourselves at the beginning of a Reese Witherspoon style change? This deep cut Jason Wu is never something I would have predicted we’d ever see on Reese Witherspoon. Full Story

Viola Davis: Best Oscar First Arrival

Thankless. It’s thankless to be first on the carpet. Firstly, you know that your reps put you out there as an early bargaining chip. They need someone recognizable and reliable but not too exciting to arrive early so that nobody turns off the TV. So you’re the anchor, but then on social media, everyone’s like ‘enough already, who cares, what was she thinking wearing that anyway?’ Which is why Davis’ easy-breezy “here I am, what do you need to know” attitude is so useful. Full Story

Penelope Cruz: Oscars Most Disappointing

At every event, there’s someone who wastes her potential. Almost everyone wasted their potential this year but I feel like Penelope Cruz wastes it more often than not. I mean, she’s capable of the spectacular. And what we get is too often pastels and feathers. Or a hybrid toga baby sling. Full Story

Daniel Day Lewis: Best Oscar Accent

It’s not just the accent, of course. It’s that shiny silver hair and the lilt in the voice and the grin. Right now I’m having a bit of a hard time, because even though I know him in my bones to be Irish, it turns out he wasn’t born there, and I’m questioning everything I know. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch: Internet Famous at the Oscars

One of our producers had a seat in the bleachers this year, taking pictures and Instagram video as part of our social media team. This is the text she sent me around noon: “I’m sitting with the MiniVan Majority.” When Benedict Cumberbatch arrived, no one in her section of the bleachers knew who he was. Full Story
