Your complains about AnnaLynne McCord‘s Golden Globes dress were heard loud and clear.
At an Artists for Peace and Justice Haiti benefit last night, the 90210 star apologized to her critics for donning the grabby gown. (You can see a full-length view after the jump.)
“I had an amazing dress, which was showing a little too much, and I kept pushing it to myself—and apparently, by the end of the night, it looked like it was holding me in a very compromising position!” McCord said about the Lloyd Klein garment. “I’m sorry everyone! Especially middle America! That was not the idea!”
In your defense, AnnaLynne - it’s not like you were known for your fashion choices anyway.

Reality star Heidi Montag wanted size H breasts - to match her name.
celebrity, 23, recently had her boobs enlarged as one of the 10 cosmetic surgery procedures she had last year but settled for a smaller size than what she asked for.
“At first I kept saying my boobs aren’t big enough. I wanted 800 cc’s and I ended up getting about 650 cc’s. 800 is the largest size that they make. I kept saying like a crazy person for eight weeks, saying I want them bigger I want them bigger. I think I’m good with them now… They’re triple D’s or F’s pretty much, I wanted ‘H’ for Heidi but that didn’t really happen that way.”
The bubbly blonde also talked about her procedures, which she had done all on one day. She told Access Hollywood, “I almost died after my procedure. I had too much Demerol like Michael Jackson did and my breathing was five breaths per minute which is like almost dead. I was in an aftercare center, there were nurses that were supposed to be tending to me at all times.”
Among the operations Heidi undertook were fat injections in her cheeks and lips, neck liposuction, buttock augmentation, a nose job and a mini-brow lift.
A Twilight-inspired clothing range is being launched.
American fashion label BB Dakota is creating the line after one of its jackets was used in the vampire film. The canvas coat, worn by Kristen Stewart‘s character Bella during a romantic scene with Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen, was not supposed to be used at all.
Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway thinks she’s one of Hollywood’s “larger” actresses.
The 27-year-old beauty loves getting dressed up for glamorous award shows and red carpet events but has to warn fashion designers she won’t be able to squeeze into their size zero dresses before a fitting.
“If designers want to dress me then I am at the larger end of the Hollywood scale so they have to be fine with that. And I think what some designers do is if a dress doesn’t fit you because it’s been fitted to a size zero model they will remake the dress for you.”
Anne - who is slim US size four to six - has always been happy with her body and is determined not to give into the pressures of Hollywood to lose weight and look “perfect.”
“I gave up my struggle with perfection a long time ago. That’s a concept I don’t find very interesting anymore. Everyone just wants to look good in the photographs. I think that’s where some of the pressure comes from. Be happy. Be yourself, the day is about a lot more.”
Newly-brunette Nicole Richie wants her new clothing line to make women feel as if they’re naked.
The socialite says her new fashion range Winter Kate, named after her two-year-old daughter Harlow’s middle monikers, was inspired by what she feels comfortable in, which is mainly light-feeling outfits. Nicole - who has her own jewellery line, House of Harlow 1960 - said:
“I 100 per cent designed everything. Colors, cuts, fabrics. I would never put my name on something I wouldn’t wear myself. That’s why it’s taken me this long to have my line come out. I do respect designers that go in it for the long haul and don’t do things that are trendy. I’ve always been one to dress for comfort. I’m not one to wear something that I don’t feel good in. Comfort was really important for me, especially doing a spring line. For me, I really don’t like to feel like I’m wearing anything.”
It was only a matter of time before the ever-so-stylish Rachel Bilson delved into the jewelry world. What better way to start than with designing a diamond bracelet?
The 28-year-old actress created the jewelery to benefit the Diamond Empowerment Fund, a non-profit organization that supports education in Africa, and will donate a portion of sales revenue to the cause. Rachel was inspired to help after visiting Botswana and South Africa last month to learn about improvements made in the diamond mining industry there and wanted to do all she could to promote the cause.
The bracelet is made up of brown leather cords, with a gold charm framing a dainty round diamond. The accessory retails for $100, with $20 from the sale of each piece going to the Diamond Empowerment Fund to build student housing at the CIDA City Campus, a university in Johannesburg which is the country’s first to be virtually free. The jewelery is being sold exclusively through InStyle.com.
This is not Rachel’s first venture into design - she also has her own clothing range Edie Rose, but admits she struggles with some of the processes: “I can’t draw at all, so I won’t be doing any sketches, but I am learning to sew. I think it’s important to know more about the whole process of making clothes.”
Make no mistake - Suri Cruise is her own stylist.
The three-year-old tot, daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, dresses herself and chooses all her outfits. Dad Tom said, “Just so you know, she dresses herself. She picks out everything on her own.”
Mum Katie - who has her own clothing line Holmes + Yang - admits she’s a huge admirer of her daughter’s sense of fashion: “She has such cute style.”
Although Suri chooses her own outfits, it was recently reported Katie spends $25,000 a month on her daughter’s clothes as she wants her to be the “most fashionable kid in Hollywood.”
A source said, “Dressing Suri in amazing outfits has become Katie’s favorite hobby. She’ll scour the internet and Beverly Hills shops to find items and get inspiration for different looks. One of Katie’s favorite looks is 80s-inspired - she puts Suri in leggings and long sweatshirts or bright dresses. Suri loves getting involved and choosing things too.”
Former model-turned-entertainer Alexa Chung is returning to her humble beginnings, collaborating with clothing store J. Crew.
The British TV presenter will be working with the chain retailers to create her own fashion range, which will be inspired by her personal style. Alexa, 26, said, “I was being offered so many collaborations for a long time, but I held off. I thought it was quite a ‘sellout’ thing to do.”
The brand’s chairman Millard Drexler, however, claimed Alexa would be more than just a spokesperson: “There is no grand scheme to this, and we still don’t want to hire a celebrity spokesperson. It’s just that Alexa is totally cool. It’s not the way she looks or dresses. It’s the way she is.”
The range will include dungaree dresses, high-waisted skinny jeans, polka dot tea dresses and oversized wool jackets, mimicking her own wardrobe. Alexa is no stranger to the fashion industry, having previously walked the catwalk for Vivienne Westwood and modeled for DKNY and British chain New Look.
In 2009, Alexa was named the most stylish woman of the year by Vogue, beating French actress Audrey Tautou and Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker to the top spot.
Want to feel like sex on fire? Then maybe the Kings of Leon can help.

An $1150 bomber jacket and a $150 pair of jeans are among the articles available for purchase. Other items in the S2A x KOL collection include a fedoras, ankle boots and flannel shirts.
Barney’s New York and Gargyle.com are a few of the places the line can be found.
