Last night it was the Grammys awards, which is one of my favourite red carpet events because celebs dress bolder. The dress code doesn’t seem to be as serious and formal as the Oscars for example and celebs tend to have more fun – and there were certainly some interesting choices!
Over the weekend, Joe Jonas was caught with his arm wrapped around Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner‘s neck and having a smooch while watching a Kings of Leon concert in the Netherlands. The matching seems bizarre and from nowhere but the main problem I had was the reporting of it.
Zoolander 2 has been out for a couple of weeks now but I have only just managed to see it. I generally agree with the reviews – it is not as good as the original one and at times it isn’t funny at all – but I think we can all agree the celebrity cameos were the most impressive thing about it (plus all the original cast returning).
Last night was all about the 2016 Grammy Awards but the show is so long and with so many categories that I personally find the red carpet far more exciting. You can usually depend on the Grammys for some divisive fashion choices but I generally liked everything this year – especially this gorgeous look from Taylor Swift. People have been bashing her new bob but I think she looks fantastic.
There were some crazy outfits from absolute nobodies, so they are not included. I have a ton of best dressed and just a few worst dressed which weren’t totally horrible, just a bit naff. The standard is high this year.
Here are my picks:
What do you make of my choices?
2016 has well and truly kicked off so what better time to look at the movies coming up in the year ahead and get excited about some the releases to come?
You can always count on the MTV Video Music Awards for interesting red carpet fashion. This is where the celebs are their most daring, controversial and damn right sexy/sleazy (however you see it). To be honest, I found it quite hard to pick best dressed because I didn’t like most of what I saw, especially Miley Cyrus‘.
The Video Music Awards always bring out the crazy side of the celebrities and they tend to be more risky and raunchy with their clothing. So I expected the standard of ‘yes’ outfits to be pretty low and I was correct. There aren’t many that I would consider great choices but I’ve managed to select the cream of the crop in my eyes.
Well, Simon Cowell did say he would announce the rest of his panel on Monday and he certainly didn’t disappoint.
Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio will join him and Demi Lovato on the panel.
Simon said in a statement: “It’s taken more than a decade but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!). Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different.”
I’m not surprised about Kelly because I thought she did a great job on the UK show and I reckon she will do really well this time around.
To be honest, I had no idea who Paulina Rubio! So let me fill you in: Paulina is a Mexican singer and actress who has been in the business since 1980s. She became known in America in 2000, when her sixth studio album, Paulina, sold two million copies. She is still an active singer and her last album, Brava!, reached no 2 in the US Latin charts in 2011.
I am surprised Simon didn’t pick someone more mainstream and well-known by everyone for the panel. I’m not really impressed with this year’s selection because we’ve had Kelly already and I don’t really know Paulina! In reality though, how was Simon going to top Britney Spears?!
I guess we have to watch to find out if he made the right choice!
Rihanna is certainly wearing a statement T-shirt while out in New York. Her risqué top shows a hand down some panties and implies masturbation! Lovely!
How I Met Your Mother
I love these guys! The various faces they pull in this continue to make me smile. The cast were at the CBS Upfronts presentation to talk about the ninth and final season of the show.
Demi has debuted another tattoo on her shoulder saying “now I’m a warrior”. Demi told Jimmy Fallon that “Warrior” is very personal and meaningful song to her. She said: “This is a song that was really difficult for me to write, record and now release. It was kinda like a tribute to releasing an album, as well as overcoming some really, really difficult things in my life.”
Heather’s bump is starting to show! The Glee storyline at the end of season 4 certainly suggests she won’t be coming back so perhaps she is going to take time out to look after herself and her baby.
Christina looks smoking hot! She is in such good shape.
Angelina’s double mastectomy news has bagged her the Time magazine front cover and rightly so. Go on lady!
Miley makes a point of putting her left hand prominently on display to prove she is still engaged to Liam Hemsworth. I’m loving the face she is pulling and those retro shades are funky. Miley looked hot in Valentino at the Maxim Hot 100 Party last night to celebrate her being crowned number one. Unfortunately a make-up fail left her with a two-tone face.
Thank god Amanda has got rid of those nasty extensions and shaved the side of her head, like Miley Cyrus. She looks so much like Miley in the pic below. I do prefer it to her recent style.
You don’t see celebrities deliberately taking pictures of themselves looking silly very often, so this is refreshing. And hilarious! She wrote: “Time for my grown up face” in the caption. What a legend!
Zac gets a bit smoochy with his co-star Halston Sage on the set of Townies. Zac will play a frat boy who pisses off neighbour Seth Rogen. It will great to see Zac do a proper comedy. I’m so jealous of this girl!
So that’s how you keep yourself looking so good! I wonder if Michael knew his wife, Luisana, was going to upload this hilarious pic! I love it when celebs goof around. Michael recently sung “Who’s Loving You” on the NYC subway for the early morning commuters. Check out the video at the bottom.
Chloe rocks some badass clothes in this shoot with Nylon magazine. It is very punk rock. Despite being 16, she has a very wise head on her shoulders claiming that she wouldn’t touch drugs because she could lose her career.
She said: “I look around me and go, ‘God’s put me here for a reason’.I’ve worked for 11 years, and I have to keep working, too, because if I sat back on my haunches right now, I could disappear within a month.This business is not peaches and cream, and I’ve fought tooth and nail to earn this spot. I’m not a girl who’s ridden on a last name or lucked into it from getting on one project that blows up.”
She sounds so much older than her years and she obviously takes her job very seriously. I’m sure she will be around for a lng time! Check out the other cool pics.
