Rebel Wilson totally killed it as the MTV Movie Awards host Sunday night. Who knew Wilson could own the all-leather look? I didn’t, but now I do.
Naturally, Wilson rounded up all her Pitch Perfect pals for a huge opening number — a Girl On Fire/Lose Yourself/Thrift Shop mashup. The performance was incredible, and I am so pleased they performed something brand new, and didn’t try to recreate a number from the show.
It’s also nice to see Skylar Astin, Rebel Wilson, and Brittany Snow all together again. Actually, it’s nice to Skylar Astin on your TV screen in general. It’s just a shame Anna Kendrick couldn’t make the performance, but let’s face it, the show was all about Rebel Wilson. The woman has taken the world by storm, and last nights performance just proved that.
Anna Kendrick is the latest person to jump on the K-Pop bandwagon as she teams up with super girl group F(x) for this Funny or Die video!
“America’s Sweetheart” gets the full k-pop makeover, complete with recording sessions, dance rehearsals and the obligatory new look. “I look like I’m in Cloud Atlas,” she said. Don’t forget to look out for F(x)’s Victoria as channels every single Pitch Perfect fangirl (GPOY, amirite?).
It’s no secret we love Pitch Perfect. It was just one of the many reasons why we love Rebel Wilson.
Basically, we all think the whole Pitch Perfect cast is flawless, especially Anna Kendrick. We even still very much like the Cup Song from the musical even though everyone, and I mean everyone, has been trying to imitate it.
Andrewpresents on Tumblr claims the movie’s studio was looking to release a radio version of the Cup Song. If, when, why—it all doesn’t matter to us. Just get this on our iPods NOW and we’ll all be happier people for it.
Hollywood’s leading ladies and up-and coming starlets descended upon Elle’s Women in Hollywood celebration to celebrate females in the industry. The event even brought out Robert Pattinson (who was there to support his Bel Ami costar Uma Thurman, but he didn’t walk the ‘white’ carpet since this event was all about the ladies.
What she’s wearing: The Pitch Perfect star wore a black with golden embroidery Badgley Mischka Resort 2013 dress to Elle’s Women in Hollwood event.
Why we love it: For a black pencil cocktail dress this look has a lot going for it. The dress is working three trends: 1) geometric cut out bustier tops 2) brocade embroidery and 3) shear details (in this dress the sheer fabric is in the midriff which provides a cool belt effect). However the trends don’t overpower one another and work perfectly together because they are quite subtle.
Takeaway: Too many trends on one dress or outfit might seem like a good idea but you’ll regret it instantly in a couple of years because being too on-trend dates your photos really fast. So instead of potential embarrassing Facebook photos in a couple years time, try incorporating multiple trends in a single look by doing so in very small amounts.
What she’s wearing: Stone chose a bubblegum pink Valentino Resort 2013 dress for the Elle’s Women in Hollywood event.
Why we love it: For a pretty modest number (I guess modest by today’s standards anyways) you can’t help but smile at this dress and take notice of Stone. The bright pink number takes this simple look and turns it into quite a head turner as it pops out on the white carpet. Also the sheer sleeves adds some much needed skin and makes the dress more youthful, while the white statement collar and cuffs adds some much needed contrast to the overwhelming pink. She also balances the pink out with a black clutch and a pop of print in those houndstooth pumps.
Takeaway: Bright and bold colours are a great way to put a spin on conservative and traditional clothing. If this look was in black or a more sombre colour, all the fun would be taken out of it and Stone might end up looking like Wednesday Addams. (Sidenote: I love Wednesday Addams, specifically Christina Ricci’s portrayal, but best save the Addams Family look for Halloween and off the red carpet.)
What she’s wearing: The Australian actress stepped out in a studded print photo Proenza Schouler Spring/Summer 2013 dress at the Elle’s Women in Hollywood event.
Why we love it: If you haven’t discovered the amazing-ness of Cate Blanchett and her A+ red carpet track record, then I hope you do some research on some of the looks she wears since she is one of the gold standards for Hollywood high fashion. If you never considered fashion to be art before then hopefully this dress changes your mind since it actually has art printed on the dress. Photo prints on clothing is an upcoming trend and this dress takes it to the next level by abstracting the print with blue colour studs and grommet detailing (it’s a cool take on neo-impressionist art).
Takeaway: Photo printed clothing can be a fun way to personalize your wardrobe since it’s totally possible to create your own clothes with the number of custom silkscreen businesses online (and perhaps your hometown) that you can use. A cool way to get into photography and fashion design. The more abstract a photo the more fashionable it is since you’d probably want to stay away from producing anything like this (save that for Mother’s and Father’s Day).
The Jonas Brothers
She can sing, she can act…and now she can play with cups too?!
Proving everyone that she’s just a regular dork like one of us, Anna Kendrick stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman to promote her new film Pitch Perfect. During the interview, she even managed to show off some of her secret talents!
A regular Reddit user, the actress called herself ”a loser” and admitted that she spent the whole afternoon watching a viral video to learn how to play with cups while singing. And let me say, she nails it!
Dear Anna, don’t ever change. In fact, I think we should be BFFs.
Watch the video here:
And if you’re wondering which viral video Anna is talking about, here it is!
In a society fascinated by Glee, here is yet another film exploring the idea of singing in a show choir.
Helmed by Dawson’s Creek director Jason Moore, Pitch Perfect stars Anna Kendrick in the middle of an a capella group at her all-girls’ college. Needing to rebuild and beat the rival all-boys group, the film also features the talents of Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (yes, McLovin from Superbad!!)
While it’s pretty obvious what the outcome of the story is, I can imagine this film being a complete cringeworthy cheesefest.
But with the hilarious Rebel Wilson delivering her one-liners, catchy songs sung in a capella and some obvious romance put in, this looks like a guilty-pleasure type of movie.
