This will pretty much complete our slow coverage of the MET Costume Institute Gala. I’m sure we missed a lot of gems, so we’ll run through various sets once again later this evening and have a final post. The glamorous gala comes only once a year, so it’s worth spending a little extra time on it.
With respect to the ladies in this post, I have to say that Taylor Swift was a major disappointment. I can’t tell if she was playing it really safe or if she was shooting for a more mature look? Selena should’ve just stayed home because her dress looked like something you could buy at Macy’s. Alicia Vikander proved that she’ll look cute & sexy in anything, while Demi Lovato was wrapped a gilded frame around herself. And finally, Emma Watson could do much better considering her daring looks on the red carpet.

This is probably a little unfair to Selena Gomez, but hey, her hardcore fans will vote for her regardless of who she goes against. Both ladies attended the Louis Vuitton Dinner Party as one of the final big events of Paris Fashion Week which came to a close last night. The always-cute & sexy Alicia Vikander is making the rounds just weeks after bagging her first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘The Danish Girl’.
Aside from last night’s big LV show & dinner, Selena made a number of appearances over the past 24 hours in different outfits. Yesterday evening she was out & about wearing some sort of business suit/dress-looking thing (with the shades). Earlier today she was seen paying a visit to Virgin Radio station during which she had multiple outfit changes—she went in wearing some orange outfit & then came out wearing a sparkling black dress.
Far from the best dress on the Oscars red carpet last night, but hey, with a face like that, Alicia Vikander could wear a trash bag down the red carpet and there would be very few complaints.
We’ve loved her for a while, but with the Swedish beauty bagging an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress last night, Hollywood bigwigs are going to sign her on to a long list of projects over the next couple years. Don’t be surprised if she scores an Academy Award for Best Actress in the near future! The 27-year-old won her first Oscar for her role in “The Danish Girl,” also starring Eddie Redmayne. I feel like Eddie got royally robbed this year, but there’s not much you can do when you have everyone & their grandma wanting to give an Academy Award to Leonardo DiCaprio.
There weren’t any big surprises last night with respect to winners, so it looks like Leo will go on to win the Academy Award—unless of course he suffers a major snub. Aside for Leo winning for Revenant, Best Actress went to Brie Larson in “Room”. Idris Elba (“Beasts of No Nation”) and Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) won in the best supporting actors category. And finally, the film “Spotlight” won for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. For those of you looking for the complete list of winners, check here.

Just like they do every year, A-listers got dolled up and appeared on the red carpet at the 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards held at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. We’ve chosen just a few of our favorites for you guys to put under the microscope.
Famous couples that caught our eye were Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, who got married back in August. They haven’t divorced yet, so it looks like they might hit the six month mark! Good for them! And, newly engaged Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham were also there showing off the $350K engagement bling! We’re still looking for a high-res close-up of the rock.
With respect to the show, it was broadcast on A&E, and hosted by “Silicon Valley” actor T. J. Miller. “Spotlight” won Best Film while “Mad Max: Fury Road” took home the most awards (9) after receiving the most nominations (13). Individual award winners included Leo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Sylvester Stallone, Alicia Vikander, Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Christian Bale and Amy Schumer. Check out the full list of winners and nominees. Visit Critics’ Choice for complete coverage.

In addition to our earlier posts, here are a few more of our favorites to catwalk down the red carpet at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. Aside from Kirsten Dunst, whom we were forced to brown bag (not that anyone was looking at her face), the other ladies on our shortlist should please even the pickiest among you bastards (OK, we’re probably overreaching with that previous statement).
Hosted by Ricky Gervais, some winners of the night were “The Revenant”, “The Martian”, “Mr. Robot”, “Mozart in the Jungle” along with individual awards going to Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Jon Hamm, Matt Damon and Jennifer Lawrence, to name a few. Check out the full list of nominees and winners.
I have yet to watched it, but apparently there’s already Oscar buzz around the “The Danish Girl”—potential Best Actress/Actor nods for both Alicia Vikander and Eddie Redmayne, as well as the film itself for Best Picture. The film, which also stars Amber Heard, premiered last night in London at the Odeon Leicester Square, but won’t go into wider release in the UK until January 1st.
Here’s more about the film:
In early 1920s Copenhagen, the illustrator and artist Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) asks her husband, Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), to stand in for a female model. The popularity of the portraits leads to Gerda painting her husband in further pictures as a woman. Einar develops an attraction for the female physical appearance and begins living as a woman named Lili Elbe. Ultimately Elbe becomes the first ever recipient of male to female sex reassignment surgery, and Gerda supports her decision, although their marriage becomes strained when Gerda comes to the realization that Lili is no longer the person she married. A childhood friend of Lili, Hans Axgil (Matthias Schoenaerts), shows up and forms a complex love triangle with the couple.[Source]
The last time we saw Alicia on the site was last month when she was on the set of an Elle Magazine’s photoshoot in Los Angles. After starring in “Seventh Son” and “Ex Machina”, you’ll next see Alicia star in Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From UNCLE”, also starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. Look for it in theaters this weekend!
It appears Alicia in NYC to kick off a promo tour ahead of the film’s release. Here’s more about the film, the trailer, as well as a behind-the-scenes interview about her experience doing the film.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s period of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement) agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. The two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization led by Victoria Vinciguerra, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is Gaby Teller, the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find her and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

It was pretty much your above-average King Sugar Daddy’s wildest fantasy—aside from the part where you have to give away money, of course. Picture it like this, you’re sitting inside a beautiful hall packed full scantily-clad, equally beautiful women and there are only a few ways to truly get noticed by one of these women:
1. Be a world famous actor
2. Be within Leonardo DiCaprio’s tightly-knit entourage
3. Or, when the time is most propitious, raise your hand to make a $10+ million donation in the fight against AIDS.
Apparently this year’s event raised around $30 million according to amfAR’s website:
The 22nd annual Cinema Against AIDS gala in Antibes, France, May 21, raised more than $30 million for amfAR’s AIDS research programs and the search for a cure. The undisputed highlight of the evening’s live auction, led by auctioneer Simon de Pury, was a stunning 18½ foot tall sculpture by Jeff Koons, titled Coloring Book. After a lively round of bidding, the work, part of Koons’s Celebration Series, sold for over $13 million.
It’s still unconfirmed which one of these supermodels went along with this aforementioned $13 million sculpture by Jeff Koons. Anyone want to take a wild guess?
