You know what a premium we put on awkward these days? Coltish, beautiful young people who have never looked or been awkward in their lives love to use the word as a catch-all that’s supposed to mean ‘I’m a little more interesting than the average person.’ But awkward is not always charming, and assuming the two go together is a luxury most people can’t afford. Full Story

Kate McKinnon: Best Emmy Win

This woman really, really did not expect to win. Those are always the most fun to begin with (and it was really the night to be a long-shot to win wearing a red column, huh?), but when you add that the person who surprise-wins is incredibly talented, it makes things even more charming, especially when people are falling all over themselves to work with this person. Full Story

I look forward to seeing Taraji P Henson on a carpet. I was really, really looking forward to seeing her on this carpet. I thought for sure she’d be a contender for best dressed. And then she showed up, in the most boring yellow dress ever, and it seemed like she opted out. Full Story

Is there nothing they can’t do? Honestly, this is the kind of thing I usually hate—kids being brought into an adult situation to capitalize on being cute. You can see them, eyes whirling in their heads, trying to figure out how to get everyone to laugh and smile at them again. Looking for a hit. Full Story

Kristen Bell’s pale lip at the Emmys

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 19, 2016 14:39:15 September 19, 2016 14:39:15

So… Kristen Bell is not my favourite. And she’s never my favourite on a red carpet. I actually look forward to this; I look forward to not liking whatever she wears on a red carpet. But this did not happen at the Emmys. Her dress was nice. Too flouncy and maybe even a little too busy for my taste but definitely not on the worst list. Full Story

I’m pretty shocked at the number of people who didn’t see American Crime Story about OJ, although to their credit, a lot of people conflated it with either American Horror Story, American Crime, or the OJ documentary. Far be it from me to tell Ryan Murphy what to do, but dude, maybe diversify your titles a little, thoughts? We’ll still know it’s from you, promise. Full Story

If you’ve been reading this site for a while, you know about Amanda Peet – so beautiful and *could* be SO stylish but she makes the weirdest, most fascinating fashion choices sometimes. Like, oftentimes the outfit is almost good. Full Story

If you’ve never watched an episode of Game of Thrones, you still have to appreciate the cuteness of these two. They’ve grown up together in the spotlight of this ridiculous behemoth of a show, and despite the fact that, as far as I can tell, they haven’t had a scene together in about five years, they seem to be cute friends-slash-sisters, to the point where they even got matching tattoos of the date they first got the call that they were cast. Full Story

All the photos I saw of Kit Harington before the show, on the carpet, were of him making his squinty-eye, brooding face, also known as his Jon Snow face. So it was going to be that kind of night. I thought…wrong. Full Story

I don’t love this dress on Viola Davis, but I’m always grading on a curve for people who wear colour. Still, this one feels a lot more prom-y than some of the showstoppers she’s worn before. Full Story
