Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Jessica Parker share a moment on the red carpet.
It can be tough to find the right outfit for the Met Gala. There’s so much pressure to be dressed the best and the competition is steep! Like I said in Part 1, this year’s punk theme might have been a bit too high concept for some people to wrap their heads around. So while some celebrities made some honest but failed attempts at going punk, some celebrities completely ignored the theme all together. So here are our choices for the ones who did not quite make the best dressed list and the ones who completely missed the mark all together.
There’s a lot of the classic Taylor Swift elements going on in the dress, but I find the black so jarring on Swift. Perhaps if this was in Swift’s go to white colour it would work better.
Blake Lively looks like she is channeling her inner Black Swan, but there’s nothing very punk about this.
I love Jennifer Lawrence but this just seems like a case where a celebrity was contractually obligated to wear this design. J. Law is the face of Miss Dior so it makes sense why this happened. It’s pretty but not amazing.
What she’s wearing: The R&B singer stepped out in a black Pamella Roland sequin long-sleeve gown at the ‘VH1 Divas’ concert in L.A.
Why we love it: Ciara is a sexy singer and she showed us why in this look. However she hardly bares any skin except for the sexy deep v-neck and the sheer panels along the side. This gown looks easy and effortless while still interesting enough to stand out on the red carpet. She keeps her accessorizing minimal with no jewellery and allows her dress to do all the sparkling.
Maybe next time Allison, Ciara is actually America’s Next Top Model!
Takeaway: Sequins and sparkles are not for everybody but choosing neutral colour sequins are more universal and a lot more accessible to those new to sequins. And as most neutral colour dresses you can get a lot more mileage out of them year round then something in a bolder colour.
What she’s wearing: Osbourne attended the ‘VH1 Divas’ concert in L.A. In a white Paule Ka mini dress, Charlotte Olympia zebra heels, and her signature lavender locks.
Why we love it: Osbourne stood out in white on the red carpet and she looked magnificent in this glam-retro styling. Since she opted for a Little White Dress Osbourne was able to have a lot more fun with her styling, so she opted for some funky zebra print and fur shoes and an Eddie Parker clutch with metallic accents. The LWD also helped make her lavender hair pop, which she styled in a 1950s retro bouffant.
Preach! Big is beautiful, even big hair!
Takeaway: When your hair colour is more than just ordinary why not show it off and make it the main attraction of your look. Choosing a busier outfit will detract from your hair so going more simpler will make it pop.

Why we love it: The draping on the bottom half takes this floral dress to the next level since it adds a contrasting texture to the look. The draping technique continues to the back of the dress making for a pleasant surprise when Hyland turns around — it goes from sweet floral dress to a total knockout stunner! She paired it with Brian Atwood shoes in a cobalt colour and a matching Kotur clutch that both bring out the blues in the dress.
Takeaway: Pick a floral dress with interesting design elements instead of just basing your choice on the print itself. If you took away the print from this dress and remade it into a solid fabric, the dress would still be hot.
Why we love it: If only everybody looked like this while getting off a plane! Then again, there’s usually not a red carpet waiting for you on the tarmac when you get off. We’re suckers for bold geometric prints and this dress has that in spades! Plus it’s in a unique colour combination of aqua, forest-green, and white, which makes it stand out and makes it fun. She accents the look with cream accessories: the heels, the clutch and hat (the Brits sure do love a good hat!).
Takeaway: When wearing bold prints, accessorize with neutral items to minimize the in-your-face quality of the bold print. The neutral accessories will really let the print stand out.

Kelly Osbourne originally thought Miley Cyrus was a “perfect Disney b*tch when they first met.
Starring together in an upcoming movie called “So Undercover”, the Fashion Police host was happy to find her first impressions of the former Hannah Montana star were very wrong.
“When I first met Miley I thought, ‘You’re too f***ing perfect, you Disney b***h,” Kelly said in an interview with Closer magazine. ”But I love her – she’s got a level head on her shoulders – unlike so many silly LA girls.”
Kelly, who is the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has previously said that she and Miley bonded because of their famous parents. Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, is a singer most known for his hit “Achy Breaky Heart.”
“She just gets it. She has a really similar upbringing to me – though her side of things is on a completely different scale to mine,” Kelly added. “I’m from rock ‘n’ roll music and hers is country but she gets it.”
It’s nice to see these two stars getting along but did Kelly seriously think Miley was a perfect Disney star? She must be living under a rock if she didn’t see all the controversies Miley has gotten into in the past. (*cough* calling herself a stoner, *cough* salvia video)
No one’s perfect, but I’ll admit that Miley’s problems aren’t even that bad. She did end up better than a few stars from Disney…which of course, will remain unnamed.
What a night it was at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. Ricky Gervais was back to host the show but kept his crude jokes to a minimum this time. It was a big night for the cast and crew of the film “The Artist” and the t.v. show “Homeland”; both won big in their categories.
It was also a big night for these five leading ladies because their gowns have landed them on my top 5 best dressed list.
5. Kelly Osbourne
4. Jessica Alba
3. Emma Stone
2. Julianne Moore
1. Kate Beckinsale
Honourable mention: Uggie (“The Artist”)
Khloe Kardashian probably didn’t think “Punk’d” was still on the air when she recently hung out with Kelly Osbourne and Miley Cyrus. But she certainly knows now.
In an episode airing March 19, a delivery man gets his balls stuck in his zipper while using the washroom at Miley’s house. Khloe calls 911 and tries to relay the instructions from the operator. Below is a preview of what happens.
As mentioned yesterday, Miley Cyrus celebrated her 19th birthday surrounded by all her family, friends, midgets and unicorns.
The lavish bash, put together by close friend Kelly Osbourne, had everyone partying at the Roosevelt Hotel until the sun came up. Now, we finally have a few photos of the big event to share with you, thanks to Miley Gallery.
Miley danced (and drank) the night away with some very colourful guests including a mini Nicki Minaj impersonator, the Cookie Monster and a giant panda.
There certainly weren’t any high requirements for Miley’s birthday party.
Remember how Miley said a unicorn greeted her at the front lobby? Well, this is it! I’ll be patiently waiting for my invitation to her 20th birthday next year.
We wrote that Miley turned the big 1-9 yesterday. It was reported she spent her final day as an 18-year-old at a tattoo removal center in L.A. Now, we have the scoop on her big birthday bash.
OK Magazine says Kelly Osbourne threw a big party for the former Hannah Montana star. Apparently the party was so much fun that Miley didn’t go home until the wee hours of the morning. Sounds like a true 19-year-old to me.
Just Jarred is reporting a midget Nicki Minaj impersonator popped by the party to perform “Super Bass”. No word on whether or not the midget impersonator was also a midget stripper, too.
Miley tweeted last night “Can’t thank @MissKellyO for the best partyyyy ever! =]]]] i loveeeee you! Let’s just say there was a unicorn in the lobby!”
Who else can say they partied with a unicorn on their birthday? Remind me to tweet Kelly when my birthday is. Think she’ll strap a party hat on a panda for me?
You’d think by now Chris Brown would know better than to assault a hard-working female artist – verbally or physically.
The hotblooded 22-year-old hip-hop singer has once again run his mouth on Twitter. This time, a young female rapper from Toronto, Lyracist, is on the receiving end.
NOW Magazine posted Lyracist’s initial tweet, dissing Chris Brown.
Chris wrote a nasty response which he later deleted. But according to NOW, he said: “I would love to kick Yo ass up but I don’t feel like donating any of my money to ur medical bill *****!”
Ouch! Although it was Lyracist who started the fight, she’s letting Chris Brown take all the blame for the rude remarks. She told NOW she knows she made a rude remark that sparked a plug, but felt the remark was clever nonetheless.
Needless to say, Chris should lay off on threats and could have taken a different approach, since we’re still reeling from that incident with Rihanna. He too could have made a witty or sarcastic rebuttal and left it at that. But, no, Chris Brown continues doing what he does best: threatening women.
Lots of feuds start on Twitter every day with celebs. They sure make fighting with 140 characters an art. Here’s three hilarious tweet battles from the past few years.
Kelly Osbourne vs. Tila Tequila
Kelly tweeted: “I equate Tila to a fart. She is disgusting, stinks, is publicly embarrassing but kind of funny…No matter what you try and come back with the tampon says it all.”
Tila wrote back: “”is that the BEST u got? I’m TRASH and my tampon??? LMAO B—- PLEASE! AT LEAST MY TAMPON IS EXTRA SMALL AND YOU HAVE TO WEAR DEPENDS DIAPERS.”
The twitter winner: Kelly. She’s right, Tila is not only a public embarassment but completely irrelevant in 2011.
Lil Kim vs. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj apparently tweeted “Lil Kim U Next” after news of Osama Bin Laden’s death broke the internet. She later deleted the comment.
Lil Kim wrote back: “You cheap stocking cap glued $10 bag hair wig wearing b***. Get a lace front!!! FYI Indian hair don’t come in green…”
The twitter winner: Although andPOP loves Nicki Minaj, we agree with Kim. If you really have something to say, don’t be a coward and delete it 5 minutes later.
Rihanna vs. Ciara
In response to Ciara going on t.v. claiming Rihanna wasn’t nice in person, Ri tweeted: “My bad Ci, did I forget to tip you? How rude of me….You gangsta huh? Ha.”
Ciara replied: ”Trust me Rihanna you don’t want to see me on or off the stage.”
Ri wrote back: ”Good luck with bookin that stage you speak of.”
The twitter winner: Rihanna. She’s kind of true on that last tweet. Rihanna’s been on a world wide tour for most of 2011 and Ciara…well, I think she played a set on BET or Ellen once.
Kelly Osbourne and Christina Aguilera continue to fight like two brats on the playground.
In a recent appearance on E! Fashion Police, former Dancing with the Stars contestant Kelly Osbourne called Aguilera a “fat bitch”.
Kelly then continued to make fun of the singer’s appearance during last week’s Michael Jackson Tribute Concert. Aguilera sported fishnet tights, heavy makeup and super-sized hair on stage, a.k.a. generic popstar wardrobe.
According to Kelly in US Magazine, Christina started it!
“She called me fat for so many f***ing years, so you know what? F**k you! You’re fat too,” Kelly said.
It seems we need an andPOP referee to come in and settle this once and for all: You’re both putting on weight! And, putting on weight after a baby or after undergoing major career changes is normal! Neither of you are morbidly obese so either can it or prepare to be canned by everyone else. Think of the young girls that look up to you. Would you want them growing up with body image issues?
“Maybe she is just becoming the fat b**** she was born to be,” sniped Kelly during her emotional tirade. “She was a **** to me.”
And the reality TV star revealed her outburst, insisting, “She called me fat for so many years, so you know what? You’re fat too!”
The pair have been enemies for years, and of course this is just escalating the bitterness. However, this could be a great matchup for Celebrity Boxing.
While many attended the extravagant soiree hosted by Kris Jenner, gal pal Kelly Osbourne remained absent at Kim Kardashian’s bridal shower on Saturday, reports E! Online.
Osbourne, who even Tweeted her excitement for the party earlier that day, backed out in the last minute following the announcement of the death of her good friend, Amy Winehouse’s death. “good morning getting reedy for a very exciting wedding shower for the worlds most beautiful bride to be @KimKardashian i cant wait to see u!” Osbournce had Tweeted.
However, among those who attended were singer Demi Lovato, tennis champ Serena Williams, and former Spice Girl Mel B, who all took to their Twitter accounts as well following the event.
“Had such a fun time at @KimKardashian‘s bridal shower. God that family is gorgeous!” Tweeted Demi, while Williams gushed, ”@KimKardashian you looked radiant today.love u enjoy this moment. Always amazing seeing you and @KhloeKardashian and @kourtneykardsh.” Even Mel B found time to sign onto her account, saying, ”what a busy day today,i went to @KimKardashian bridal shower then @DENISE_RICHARDS baby shower ahhh i am sooooo tired right now!!”
Shortly after the party, Kim jumped on a plain air-bound to Las Vegas, where the bachelorette-party festivities continued. Sounds like a busy weekend – if we’re exhausted just reading about it, imagine how Kim feels!
Love reveals that a few years ago, she actually had to save Osbourne’s life via CPR after she blacked out from some kind of overdose. She recalls:
“I still can’t escape the stigma [of a drug addict] for some reason,” Love said. “Even people like Kelly Osbourne feel free to f–k with me … This is a girl whose life I have saved twice, once with CPR and another time with CPR and violence — by which I mean I had to poke her furiously in certain places to wake her up from her coma. It wasn’t long ago when Kim Stewart was screaming, ‘Courtney, what are we going do? Kelly Osbourne is blue on the floor!’ Kelly wasn’t doing that well back then.”
Love goes on to explain how some young girls of Hollywood actually come to her for guidance when they hit rock bottom as well – like Lohan.
“Lindsay Lohan called me after she was arrested. The judge presiding over her case was the same judge who presided over mine. He was a very sweet man. I think he was an ex-alcoholic himself. I told Lindsay to just get it together and trust the judge, and Lindsay’s father called me for advice every day … What am I, a junkie Auntie Mame?”
That’s very nice and all, but is Love really the best person to go to advice for? Has she really gotten her act together? Sure, she’s doing a lot better than how she used to be, but she ain’t no Mother Theresa either.
While celebrity deaths sprout emotional tributes left, right, and center, they do not always end up as tasteful and special as they set out to be. However, in the case of the late actor Patrick Swayze and ABC’s show Dancing with the Stars, the dance tribute was dirty, and that was perfect, according to E! Online.
The results that eliminated the first two contestants from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night were put on the backburner as some of the show’s professional dancers took to the stage in a dancing Swayze tribute.
The late actor, known for his emotional role in the movie “Ghost” but also for his hearthrob performance in “Dirty Dancing,” would have been proud.
The tribute began with Chelsie Hightower and Dmitry Chaplin, both from So You Think You Can Dance fame, doing a romantic piece to “She’s Like the Wind.” This was followed by real-life husband and wife duo Jonathan Roberts and Anna Trebunskaya waltzing to “Unchained Melody.” It was then that “Dirty Dancing” was really brought to life, with Tony Dovolani and Cheryl Burke dancing to the Oscar-winning song,”Time Of My Life,” and ending with the famous lift where Swayze hoisted Jennifer Grey into the air at the end of the movie. The tribute was received warmly by those who watched it.
