Emmys 2012 Best Dressed: See our top 24 red carpet picks and vote for your favourite


Emmys 2012 Best Dressed

See our Emmys 2012 Best Dressed picks »

There was a surprise winner on the red carpet at last night’s Emmys awards show and it happened to be the colour yellow. It’s safe to say many of the stars had a sunny outlook for the night.

Julianne Moore, Claire Danes, and Kaley Cuoco all sported dresses in egg yolk yellow. Moore opted for pieces from Raf Simmons’ first couture collection for Christian Dior, Danes wore Lanvin which flattered her pregnant belly, and Cuoco wore Angel Sanchez.

Our favourite funny girls, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey, kept their looks simple and classic. Dressed in a cream Balenciaga, black sequined Stella McCartney, and burgundy Vivienne Westwood, respectively, these comedians looked anything but silly.

There were some could-be-prom-queen moments from Zooey Deschanel and January Jones, whose trains were as long as they were wide. Deschanel had a cutesy manicure (of course) to go with her Reem Acra fluffy gown that featured a tiny TV on her nail. Turns out wearing tulle on the red carpet is harder than it seems because Zooey Deschanel got her gown caught on Lucy Liu’s metallic Versace dress. Oh, the agony!

Despite Zooey Deschanel and January Jones’ large looks, many women opted for body hugging dresses. Sofia Vergara resembled a sparkling mermaid in Zuhair Murad which featured a between the boobs cut-out and Hayden Panettiere was feeling blue in her bollywood inspired Marchesa gown. Michelle Dockery also hopped aboard the blue train in a Louis Vuitton satin dress and Nicole Kidman joined as well with a teal embellishment.

TIFF 2012: Selena Gomez wore 3 different dresses yesterday. Which is your favourite?


Selena Gomez at TIFF 2012, Spring Breakers

Selena Gomez had quite a busy day in Toronto at TIFF yesterday, in town to promote her newest and boldest role to date: part of the ensemble cast of Harmony Korine‘s edgy new flick Spring Breakers. Alongside teen-queens High School Musical‘s Vanessa Hudgens, Pretty Little LiarsAshley Benson and James Franco, Selena Gomez attended a press conference, a red carpet premiere and of course, an after party. For each of her appearances, Selena Gomez choose quite a different look. First, at the press conference, she was the vixen, in a strapless leopard-print Dolce & Gabanna dress, simple black heels and flowing brown locks. Second, it was a frothy embroidered and tulle-skirted Marchesa oyster illusion dress worn with a loose updo and gold heels at the red carpet premiere (How she sat comfortably with all that volume, we’ll never know). Finally, it was an age-appropriate strapless red taffeta dress, worn as she posed alongside co-star Ashley Benson at the spring break-themed after arty at Brassaii. Which, of the three looks gets top marks? Our vote goes to Dolce, but what really matters here is yours. Which is your favourite?

TIFF 2012: Kristen Stewart stuns in Zuhair Murad at the Toronto premiere of On The Road

RPatz who? Kristen Stewart certainly brought her A-game to Toronto last night, with bright pink lips, killer heels, a high ponytail and a stunning Zuhair Murad dress embellished with sequins and lace for the TIFF premiere of On The Road. Considering it was her first appearance post-scandal, the sleek outfit did not disappoint. There may have been doubts leading up to her moment on the TIFF red carpet, with many of the very dedicated fans who were camped outside Ryerson Theatre expressing worry that Kristen Stewart wouldn’t actually show up. Instead she was just a somewhat-fashionable hour late to TIFF—and slightly skittish in a “I’m really worried you’re going to ask me about Robert Pattinson” sort of way. Read more »

TIFF 2012: Dinner with the divine Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture


Marion Cotillard and Bernadette Morra at the Rust & Bone TIFF 2012 cast dinner

Divine. There is no other word to describe Marion Cotillard, who floated into last night’s Rust & Bone 2012 Toronto International Film Festival dinner in Look 38, straight off the Dior Haute Couture runway. The tweed strapless dress with back peplum from Raf Simons’s first collection for the house will be a tough red carpet act to follow for stars attending TIFF this year. The dinner, hosted by Moet & Chandon champagne, was held at the subterranean Michael’s on Simcoe St. Cotillard arrived with co-star Matthias Schoenarts before later zipping off to the TIFF film screening at the Elgin theatre. At the dinner, Marion Cotillard politely posed with anyone brave enough to be compared to her aqua blue eyes, rose pink lips and hair swooped up into an elegant wave. Marion Cotillard’s royal blue silk satin slingbacks with yellow tulle trim were a hopeful sign that the skyscraper heel trend is finis (as of TIFF 2012 that is). The needle-toe shoes were set on a low comma heel, an innovation designed by Roger Vivier for Christian Dior back in the ‘50s.

Best dressed in Venice: Vote for your favourite red carpet look


Best Dressed Venice Red Carpet

As a pre-cursor to TIFF, the Venice Film Festival can sometimes be seen as a rival to our Canadian red carpet extravaganza. Luckily though, the Italian festival has given us a glamorous preview of what to look forward to style-wise from the celebrities that are expected to hit our fair city later this week. In past years at TIFF, stars have been know to dress down for their big premieres, rather than go full-out glamour as they have this year at Cannes and now in Venice. But don’t fret, we can still expect to see all of our favourite designers showcased on and off the red carpet this year. Stay tuned, as we’ll be updating the latest looks from Venice as they come in.

They said/We said: Are Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth too young to be engaged? Do you care?

It’s official: Hannah Montana is all grown up. The 19-year-old singer/actress said “yes” to Liam Hemsworth last week, when he proposed to her with a 3.5 carat Neil Lane sparkler after three years of on-and-off dating.

“Thank you for all the love today :) I’m happy to share this news with you all. I feel like all my dreams are coming true. ❤ have a great day,” Cyrus tweeted earlier today. Twenty-two-year-old “Hunger Games” star Hemsworth may be young, but he’s apparently all class: the vintage, cushion-cut diamond he got for his new fiancée came in at a hefty $100,000. While the reaction to the couple’s engagement has been mostly supportive, there’s definitely a pink elephant in the room: the couple’s exceptionally young age.

With articles like this recent one from Jezebel, which details 10 good reasons why some people choose not to get married, and an ever-increasing focus on careers over families for women, it’s a bit strange to think of someone as young as Cyrus already planning her forever. And of course, if we learned anything from Sex and the City, it’s that women who “settle” like Lainey (remember the pregnant one who stole Charlotte’s baby name?) or get hitched early like Natasha (“the stick figure with no soul”) were probably setting their relationships up for failure, or, at the very least, setting themselves up for an unfulfilling life.

We’ve got to admit that even if 19 is a bit on the young side for us, this People slideshow of the couple’s PDA is pretty endearing in a slightly nauseating way, and their overt love for one another does give us hope that they might make it. On the other hand, we are a bit jaded on Hollywood love, especially of the young variety (K-Fed and Britney…enough said). Even celebrity couples who marry in their late 20s or 30s usually wind up breaking things off—how can someone who hasn’t even hit their 20-year mark be expected to sustain a lasting relationship in Hollywood?

What do you think: are Cyrus and Hemsworth setting themselves up for an early Kardashian-Humphries-style breakup?
