2007 academy awards - red carpet recap 3

None of my picks for this year's worst dressed have ever even been nominated for an Academy Award. Hmmm - maybe there is something to be said about that.

1. Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Haute Couture

Everything about this is wrong. I mean, the dress was a nightmare on the runway - but on Kirsten Dunst it is absolutely catalysmic! First off, that color against her translucent skin is just wrong. Second, it's the Goddamn Academy Awards and she couldn't even be bothered to do her hair. Can you say hot mess?

2. Beyonce Knowles in Armani Prive

Why must Beyonce always look like such a tranny on the red carpet? This mint green color bores me to tears. I must say that Beyonce carries it better than Kate Winslet did - but not by much. Okay okay, her makeup is fine and her wig is on straight - but the compliments end there. My main objection here is that fucking enamel work on the bodice of the gown. It is FAR too heavy. Complete overkill. Also, what is up with those basket-esque shoes. Never a good look!

3. Anne Hathaway in Valentino

Anne Anne Anne - you are such a gorgeous girl, but what the hell were you thinking? You look like you raided your grandmother's closet, and then got dressed in the dark. That gown would have looked fantastic on say, Magic Meryl - but it seriously ages you about 40 years. The bow on the front makes you look thick through the middle, and you're wearing too many bracelets. From the neck up, though... A+

4. Kelly Preston in Dolce & Gabbana

Ahhh, Kelly Preston. My complaint with this is not that the dress is ugly or that she's not smoking hot in it. The issue that I take, is that it is completely 100% inappropriate for the Academy Awards. You don't wear leopard print Dolce to the Oscars... especially for a gal who doesn't really have any real reason being there! Obnoxious!

2007 academy awards - red carpet recap 2

My picks for best dressed this year are all former Academy Award winners, and all ladies who never disappoint...

1. Nicole Kidman in Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga

2. Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive

3. Reese Witherspoon in Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci

4. Gwyneth Paltrow in Zac Posen

2007 academy awards - red carpet recap 1

The Academy Awards are my Superbowl. I look forward to them so much each year, and am always slightly bummed when they're over. Of course my favorite part is seeing how all of the ladies turn it out on the red carpet.

Jessica Biel, Nicole Kidman, Tyra Banks

Jada Pinkett Smith, Naomi Watts, Ziyi Zhang

Lucy Liu, Beyonce Knowles, Kate Winslet

Celine Dion, Emily Blunt, Maggie Gyllenhaal

Portia de Rossi, Reese Witherspoon, Jodie Foster

Linda Evangelista, Queen Latifah, Natalie Portman

Rinko Kikuchi, Jennifer Hudson, Lisa Ray

Kelly Preston, Naomi Campbell, Anika Noni Rose

Cate Blanchett, Rachel Weisz, Kirsten Dunst

Eva Green, Anne Hathaway, Helen Mirren

Jennifer Lopez, Rose McGowan, Cameron Diaz

Victoria Beckham, Chloe Sevigny, Liv Tyler

Penelope Cruz, Katie Holmes, Gwyneth Paltrow

Much like at the Golden Globes, white was very prominent on the red carpet. Only a few of the actresses wore vibrant colors, and I also thought that most of the ladies played it pretty safe. More to come...

and is said - no no no!

Some genius spliced vintage clips of Britty Peers and matched them up to Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab' - the result is absolutely priceless...

celebrity sizes

Meanwhile, there is no fucking way that Marpez is a size 6. I don't buy it for even a minute. Poor Raven!

reese reese reese

I've heard that Ryan Phillippe hasn't been doing so well post-split, but I must say that Reese has been looking fantastic. At both the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Reese completely rocked it in Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci. I'm really excited to see what see will be wearing this Sunday at the Academy Awards, although my fingers are crossed that's it not this same Theyskens silhouette.

All of that aside, I just saw these recent snaps and I must say that Reese is starting to look a bit like a lollipop head. Hopefully she won't turn into one of those girls. I imagine that she's just dealing with the divorce.

However I do LOVE the latte / gym clothes / Lanvin bag combo!

the fruitcake lady

I wasn't aware that Marie Rudisill aka "The Fruitcake Lady" had passed away - at the ripe old age of 95, this past November. If you watch The Tonight Show then you were likely a big fan. Here's a clip of the tribute montage that Jay Leno put together. Fan-fucking-tastic!

"Keep Miss Puss clean all the time!" - unbelievable! Here's another hilarious clip of "Ask the Fruitcake Lady"...

uzbekistan, uruguay, ukraine...

Not at all surprising - but very telling....

britty peers head shaving meltdown


Via UsWeekly - has learned what happened inside Esther's Hair Salon in Tarzana, California, Friday night when Britney Spears showed up and commenced her infamous shave-a-thon.

Esther Tognozzi, owner of the salon, tells Us that after Britney shaved off all her hair, "She just looked in the mirror and said with tears in her eyes, 'Oh, my God, I shaved it all off. My mom is going to be so upset with me.'" Tognozzi says that prior to shaving Britney complained that her extensions were "very tight and uncomfortable."

Tognozzi, who waived her normal $20 cut fee for Britney, adds that, other than the tears when she looked in the mirror, "Britney had a blank face and showed little emotion whatsoever."

"We have no idea how she found us," a salon worker tells Us. "She just walked in and said she wanted to shave her head. Esther has been in the business for 30 years and said, 'I'm not doing that.' But Britney was set on having her head shaved so she started doing it herself."

But why did Brit decide to go bald? Click here to read more...

23. Stephanie Edwards - 19 years old - Savannah, GA
24. Sundance Head - 28 years old - Porter, TX
Even from their very limited airtime as of yet, a decent number of these people already annoy me. Examples of this are as follows - Antonella Barbra, Chris Sligh, Paul Kim and Sundance Head. In addition there are a number of contestants at whom I can't bear to look. Examples of this include - Chris Sligh, Paul Kim, and Sundance Head.

Finally, there are some things (physically) about a few of the contestants that really irk me. These include - everything about Chris Sligh, Sundance Head and Paul Kim, Gina Glocksen's hair, Jared Cotter's eyebrows, Jordin Sparks' teeth, Lakisha Jones' face, Melinda Doolittle's gums, Phil Stacey's hat, Sabrina Sloan's nose, and Sanjaya Malakar's smile and hair. Let the games begin.

bigoted mother fucker - the remix

It's so ridiculous, it's laughable...

As a follow up to Hardaway being outed as a hateful mother fucker, NBA Commissioner, David Stern announced today that Hardaway would not be participating in any of this weekend's All-Star festivities -
The NBA today removed Tim Hardaway from its All-Star weekend activities, a day after he said, ''I hate gay people'' in a radio interview with a Miami Herald sports columnist.

The NBA canceled all of Hardaway's assignments this weekend, including an appearance as an ''NBA legend'' at the YMCA of Southern Nevada and participation in the NBA's community caravan leading up to Sunday's All-Star game in Las Vegas.

''It is inappropriate for him to be representing us given the disparity between his views and ours,'' NBA Commissioner David Stern said in a statement issued by the league.

gorgeous, b - just gorgeous!

Gorgeous, B - just gorgeous!

bigoted mother fucker

Via Matt Drudge -
Former Miami Heat superstar Tim Hardaway told a local sports radio show that he "hates gay people." Hardaway made the comments while he was being interviewed by Dan Le Batard on 790 the Ticket Wednesday afternoon. The five time All Star was asked how he would deal with a gay teammate.

"First of all I wouldn't want him on my team," said Hardaway. "Second of all, if he was on my team I would really distance myself from him because I don't think that's right and I don't think he should be in the locker room when we're in the locker room."

Le Batard took Hardaway to task, pointing out that his comments were 'flatly homophobic' and bigoted, but that only seemed to stir up the former point guard.

"Well, you know, I hate gay people," Hardaway said in response to Le Batard. "I let it be known I don't like gay people. I don't like to be around gay people. I'm homophobic. It shouldn't be in the world, in the United States, I don't like it."

This is one of my all time favorites - when one minority casts aspersions at another. Mr. Hardaway is clearly an educated man. For the record, he attended the University of Texas at El Paso - a bastion of progression and academia! Oh, and that fucking wife of his, who is likely just as big of an asshole, looks like a God damn tranny. I'm just sayin'! Go here to listen to the interview.

carrie's brows...

Carrie Underwood did pretty well at the Grammys on Sunday night - picking up awards for Best Country Song and Best New Artist. In general I don't have a problem with this girl - I actually quite enjoyed her until she came out with that Jesus song.

...but here's the thing - what the fuck is going on with her brow region / forehead? If you can't see what I'm talking about, click to enlarge the closeup. Seriously, what is that?!?

ralph lauren - fall 2007

It goes without saying that Ralph Lauren does a good job. I love his use of metallics, and those last 4 dresses are amazing!

Via -
Leave the 180-degree turns, the frantic grasping for new ideas, to other designers. Ralph Lauren delivered one more in a line of self-assured collections today, and, even better, proved he still has the power to surprise.
Returning home from last season's jaunt across North Africa and India, this urbane show began with suits—the first was long and lean, with a closely fitting, cropped double-breasted jacket and a skirt in the slim, three-quarter length that now looks fresh again.

From there, he took the season’s knit-dressing trend in a new direction. First, classic cardigan coats in hand-knit metallic tweeds cut a reliably elegant figure.

Then—and here's the surprise—he whipped up strappy little cashmere dresses with short, kicky skirts. They had real youth appeal.

The nipped-waist shape was echoed elsewhere in the collection—in slim turtlenecks worn with dirndls; in a chocolate flight jacket and matching flaring skirt; and in a couple of great-looking coats.

These were slim on top and full to the knee, and the best one came in the antiqued gold that was the only flash amid the blacks, browns, and grays.

But in Lauren’s world, after-eight dressing will always call for something sinuous. This season, that meant a pair of exit-making black gowns, one with a giant bow at the lower back and another with an organza ruffle from nape to ankle. Along with a daring, plunge-front dress in burnished gold lamé, they were surefire hits.

chado ralph rucci - fall 2007

There's something very academic about Ralph Rucci's work. The techniques that are employed in his atelier (not to mention the extremely luxe materials) give his garments such an immense sense of polish. It's no mystery as to why Rucci is the only American designer who shows couture in Paris - and the only American to be officially invited by Paris' Chambre Syndicale, since Mainbocher.

Here is the review -

Ralph Rucci celebrated his 25th anniversary in business last month with a retrospective at the Museum at FIT.

It's quite possible that many of the pieces in tonight’s show are destined for museum collections of their own, so remarkable is his workmanship and extravagant the embellishments.

Rucci isn’t content to cut a suit in copper double-face cashmere; both jacket and skirt are overstitched in gently arcing swirls of bas relief.

And a series of dresses from his Spring Couture collection, which constituted the second portion of this stately affair, were embroidered with curving shapes straight out of a Louise Nevelson collage.
Perhaps with an eye to his next quarter century, Rucci’s loftiest creations were balanced by pieces with a rather more youthful appeal.

Take, for instance, a natural Mongolian lamb chubby striped across its center with chocolate brown, or the beige chinchilla spiral jacket intercut with cognac leather macramé.

It was easy to picture either of them draped over the shoulders of one of the fur-loving socials swanning about during fashion week.

But the likeliest contender for the youth vote was a dress that fell in smoky tiers of organza to the floor, free of all embellishments save for a jewel suspended like a secret from a delicate back strap.

For all that, if Rucci really wants to put a new generation under his couturier spell, he'll have to trim his overlong presentation, change the music, and lighten up the hair and makeup.

Impeccable as always! If you haven't found time to see the Ralph Rucci exhibition at FIT (currently running until April 14th), please do so immediately!
