It’s just SO TRAGIC! Joan Rivers wouldn’t wear this. Laura Bush wouldn’t wear it either. Maybe some 80 year old socialite who smells like Gin & Ben Gay? But on Anna Hathaway? Young Anne Hathaway with a luscious body and an even sweeter personality? (she’s shooting in Vancouver, has been gracious and kind on set and off) Young Hathaway who apparently can’t NOT fail at a big event? Seriously gossips… I hurt for her. Full Story

Worst Dye Job: Clive Owen

In photos, because of the light and the flashbulbs, you really don’t get the sense. In photos, because of the light and the flashbulbs, Clive Owen was The Hotness. And he still is The Hotness. Except for the hair. In person, the hair was recently coloured and coloured not that well. A shade too dark and…well…I don’t know how to describe it but there were some blending issues, you know? Like what a fugitive on the run would look like if he picked up a box of L’Oreal Preference from the drug store and changed his hair in a gas station bathroom to avoid detection. Full Story

Worst Animal: Kelly Preston

Ah…no. Absolutely not. Absolutely never. Absolutely under no circumstances, I don’t give a sh-t who you are, I don’t care if Xenu himself arrived in his spaceship to bless it … this dress is WRONG. And this dress on the Oscar red carpet is not only wrong, it is a serious sign of disrespect – an insolent contamination that should not go unpunished. Full Story

Most Surprising: Celine Dion

This is a woman who has tried and failed miserably with a backwards suit jacket and matching fedora at the Oscars. As such, all things considered, I’m thinkin’ tonight was a bit of shocker. Dare I say it? Celine looked almost normal. Until she started cheese-spraying the crown during her tribute, but still. Full Story

Quick fashion interruption – thought you’d want to know. Ben and I were waiting to be picked up outside the Roosevelt at 4am for morning talk show interviews. Orlando Bloom rolls in with a wingman or two, heads upstairs, comes back down a few minutes later and an SUV full of giggling girls is idling at valet – you’ll be happy to know he travels in an environmentally friendly SUV. Full Story

Worst Charlize Theron: Emily Blunt

Constipated fashion winner incapable of looking anything but dour on the carpet – Charlize Theron has the same problem and it has everything to do with smiling. And it’s a shame, really. Because Emily Blunt is really so beautiful. And fashionable. And she was fantastic – if not a little boring – in this metallic blue strapless Calvin Klein made even more unremarkable because there was so little sparkle coming from inside of her. Full Story

Most Underwhelming: Jennifer Lopez

Not saying she looked like sh-t or anything…just saying I didn’t care. And since when does Jennifer Lopez inspire indifference?   The colour, whatever. The cut, whatever. The makeup, whatever. The hair…total ass. And I think she knew it too. Something about the way she worked it tonight. Full Story

Best Lips: Rachel Weisz

I was indifferent about the dress. But trust me, no one who saw her was looking at the dress. I’m telling you – Rachel Weisz is drop dead gorgeous. Like, absolutely breathtaking. The best shade of plum/wine ever and flawless skin, topped off by a quiet calm confidence and a smile for everyone as she came down the carpet. Full Story

Worst Recycle: Penelope Cruz

Three years ago…fine. If SJP and Nicole and several others hadn’t already dabbled in the fluffy skirt, absolutely. But this dress is over. It is SO over. And wearing something that’s been SO over for 3 years is a crime. Even though the colour is lovely, even though she’s mercifully not rockin’ the beehive, even though her skin is delicious and she was as sweet as they come on the carpet – even still, a showing like this is not impressive. Full Story

Most Overrated: Jennifer Hudson

All this hype about who was dressing her, Andre Leon Talley mentoring her, everyone wanting her… and this. This is what comes out of it? Two words: MAJOR Letdown. Two more letters: H&M Because I don’t care if it’s Oscar de la Renta. When you can buy it for $89.99 at the mall – it ain’t right and it certainly ain’t ok. Full Story

Best Black & Blue: Maggie Gyllenhaal

She arrived early and she made an early splash. I don’t think the photos do her justice either. You had to see this dress up close. You had to see her from all angles…especially the black and blue combination, ordinarily an unacceptable bruise but on Maggie tonight, it was unf*cking believable. A band of black feathers at the bottom of the skirt, they caught the light from every photograph and I loved her quirky touch with the hairpiece, an old school glamour vibe – it was exactly the right note for exactly the right person. Full Story
