Melissa McCarthy Snubbed by Designers for Oscars

Melissa McCarthy at 2012's OscarsMelissa McCarthy has revealed designers refused to make a dress in her size for the Oscar awards in 2012.

The Bridesmaids star, who has just created a line of plus-size clothing for women, admits a number of high-profile designers snubbed her request for the glamorous event.

"Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers - very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people - and they all said no," the star said in the July issue of Redbook.

Despite being busy with her new fashion venture, the 43-year-old actress has also been juggling her family life, and admits her marriage with Ben Falcone couldn't be better: "We have a great marriage." The couple, who tied the knot in 2005, haven't let their high level of fame change their relationship because the most important thing to them is their two daughters Vivian, seven, and Georgette, four.

Winona Ryder Wore a $10 Dress to the Oscars

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities

Winona RyderWinona Ryder once wore a $10 dress to the Oscars.

The Girl, Interrupted star is an avid bargain hunter and lover of vintage clothes, and is also not afraid to recycle outfits she has previously worn to events. "Most of my wardrobe is vintage and I've worn dresses to the Oscars that I got for $10. At Sean Penn's last Haiti gala I wore this vintage dress that I'd worn to a film premiere in 2005. I know that's kind of a no-no in the fashion world, but why wear something just once if you love it?" she told Red magazine.

The 42-year-old actress rose to fame in the mid 80s while she was still a teenager and had continuing success in her 20s, which she says made her 30s hard, as her young looks meant she didn't always get picked for the roles she wanted: "My early thirties were rough. I went through stuff that I would have gone through, and probably should have gone through much younger, but I had spent my twenties working. Even when I was the right age for older roles, people thought of me as being younger. It was tough because I'd had so much success in my early twenties."


Fashion Police: Brad and Angie’s His and Her Tuxes

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt at the BAFTAs

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt must think that couples who dress together are those who stay together...

The A-list couple were spotted on the BAFTA red carpet today wearing tuxes. While Angie's was clearly more suited for feminine wear (plunging neckline, 3/4 sleeves, see-through blouse, and undone bowtie hanging around her neck), Brad opted for a fairly traditional look. Is their matching formal wear adorably and fashionably cute or just downright annoying?

Kristen Stewart Still Embarrassed About ‘Panic Room’ Outfit

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities

Kristen StewartKristen Stewart is still embarrassed about an outfit she wore when she was 11.

The Snow White and the Huntsman star still smarts when she thinks about her styling at the premiere of 2002's Panic Room - one of her early movies - which consisted of a long black trench coat over a green dress and blocky trainers.

"My biggest fashion regret? I think the pictures that they took at the premiere of Panic Room. It's like a popular image to show from when I was younger, you know, like, 'She was a kid!' And I look at that and I'm like, 'Oh... my... gosh.' It shouldn't be embarrassing because I was so young. But it doesn't even matter how young you are, you're just so, so embarrassed," she said.

Kristen, now 23, admits she was "completely goofy" as a child, and even hates her hair in the pictures. "I had like these baby hairs and I was being weird about them, so I was like, 'I'm just gonna cut them off.' And I had like these little things like poking out from under my hair and behind my ears, and a ridiculous outfit. I did not know how to get dressed up at that age at all, I didn't even know what I liked. I was just like completely... a goofy kid," she added.


Beyoncé‘s Dress to Sell for $250,000

Beyonce at this year's Grammy AwardsOne of Beyonce's biggest fans has offered to buy the dress she wore to the Grammy Awards for $250,000.

The "XO" hitmaker, who caused controversy with her steamy performance at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night, wore a white and sheer gown by Project Runway designer Michael Costello on the red carpet and he is currently debating whether to sell the delicate ensemble.

"There's a guy who's an obsessive Beyonce fan who offered us $250,000 for the dress. It's crazy. I'm debating. I want to keep it! It's a dream come true," he told People.com.

Michael made six dresses for the 32-year-old star for the event and previously admitted he was wowed by her "tiny, amazing" body. The blonde beauty, who is married to rapper Jay Z with whom she has a two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, reportedly dropped 70 pounds in recent months after following a largely vegetarian diet. Once known for her curvy figure, Beyonce is now said to be a size 2.

Greta Gerwig at the premiere of 'Her'

“I want to go a little bit more Sofia Vergara, if she were an awkward German girl... [My stylist Erin] helps guide me. Sometimes I’ll do that thing where I’m like, ‘Oh, I want to wear the weirdest dress on the rack!’ She’s like, ‘Greta... it’s just going to make you look weird.’ Sometimes I do it anyway, and she’s like, ‘Seriously, what did I just tell you!'"

Jennifer Lawrence Hated How She Looked in Couture Dior Gown

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, News

Jennifer LawrenceYes, you sadly read that title correctly: Jennifer Lawrence has come out and said that what was probably her best The Hunger Games: Catching Fire red carpet look was not her favorite!

"I think any time a girl has to show her thighs it's never going to be her favorite look," she said on Good Morning America.

Although I usually eat up Lawrence's quotes, I'm still reeling from this one, considering she looked nothing but breathtaking and badass all at the same time in her Dior Haute Couture gown. Perhaps because she took a moment to realize that the dress was amazing, as she quickly clarified: "I loved it, I loved the dress -- if someone else wore it. It's hard for any woman to look at a picture of herself and [like it]."

Oh say it isn't so - our great defender of body positivity has let societal body pressures get to her when it came to this particular red carpet look. Let's hope she realizes that she's beautiful no matter what her thighs are and that she can definitely pull any gorgeous frock off with her adorable pixie cut!
