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.
While I’m in slight disbelief someone is still thinking about auto-tuning everything, this New Girl auto-tuned video is actually pretty funny. It’s not like Zooey Deschanel (who stars as Jessica Day) needs it — as one half of She & Him, Deschanel has a pretty stellar singing voice. It’s just really funny to see Jess and Nick’s (played by Jake Johnson) ongoing love story condensed into a handy two minute video. Also, I really don’t mind hearing Schimdt say, “I don’t want some freshwater bitch fish. I want a lion fish” either.
Things turned kind of awkward when closed captioning though “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev” sounded a lot like for “Zooey Deschanel.”
While the spelling could not have been any more different, seeing a 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel pop up in the news must have been quite surreal.
But to be fair, there were A LOT of unconfirmed reports being spread around during the coverage of this story. So who really knows WHAT Fox 4 Breaking News was intending??
This week’s episode of New Girl has Jess throwing Cece a surprise bachelorette party and subsequently forcing the guys to do some bonding and spontaneous bachelor party planning for Cece’s fiancé, Shivrang. With all the other crazy plot lines this season, it was easy to put the whole “Cece’s getting married!” thing on the back burner. The writer’s did a fair job bringing us back to the upcoming nuptials, though the episode itself felt a little reach-ey and fell a little flat.
Five things from this week:
1. Dead Dad Pass
This week we got introduced to the concept of the “Dead Dad Pass.” This week’s episode did a pretty good job of going back and acknowledging the death of Nick’s dad and the impact it had and still has on the group, but in true New Girl fashion. Nick used (in a tasteful way, surprisingly!) the passing of his Dad as a veto to get out of certain situations as well as to allow him to act strangely. Think orange jumpsuits, not-so-much tap dancing in the kitchen and getting out of having to take a photo of Shivrang’s penis. What now? Oh, that. Yeah. We’ll get to that.
2. Doctor Sadie is back
Dr. Sadie needs to be in more episodes. I wouldn’t say bring her into every episode and make her a regular character or sixth member of the group, but have her pop in more often. Between the jokes and set ups of what being a lesbian gynecologist allows, adding the fact that her timing and comedic presence is spot on, she’s just a gosh-darn delight. She definitely needs to be written in more often. So does Alfredo.
3. “You were sitting there, eating one basil leaf, like an idiot panda bear!”
This week Nick (and the rest of the group) has to deal with Nick’s father’s passing. The gang road trips it to Chicago for the funeral and Jess gets to meet the fam.
WARNING: Do not go into this episode thinking the entire thing will be cupcakes and rainbows and a shirtless half hour of Ryan Gosling. Sh*t got a little real this episode. There was more emotion this week than we’re used to seeing from the series, but the writers hit the nail on the head with the balance of appropriate humour and comedic relief. It wasn’t an episode to challenge the likes of Grey’s Anatomy or anything, but let’s just say my roommate and I caught each other sniffling. Here are a few things from this week:
1. “Nick’s just mad because that balloon beat his punk ass”
Jess brings home a bunch of helium balloons from a guy giving them away out of his van. Classic Jess. Also- this is all I want my life to be. Just sitting around, huffing helium all day, ‘err day, the rest of my life. I know, I’m an overachiever. Try and tell me that’s not the most fun ever. I dare you.
2. Winston Gets Cheated
Winston gets an A+. As per usual, I felt like Winston got a little cheated this episode. I feel like Winston repeatedly gets cheated. He’s primarily being used to cap off a punch line or give the joke that little extra dash of emotion or expression to send it over the edge of hilarity. He knows how to play it and he does it well. I really want an episode to be centered around Winston. Why? Because of reasons, that’s why. That and it would probably be my favourite episode ever.
2. “IT’S CALLED PAP!”
NICK KROLL GUEST STARS?! WHAT?! WHAT!!! YES. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE MAKE HIM RECURRING. I can’t even. All my emotions.
2. “I really feel transported to the ghetto.”
I think this should be mandatory at all funerals? P.S Mamma miller can break it down.
2. Nick and Jess are meant to be
Nick and Jess are going to end up getting married. It’s going to happen. I don’t know how I feel about this upon further reflection, but we’ll see.
We all love Zooey Deschanel for a different reason. It could be because of her hilarious portrayal of Jess on New Girl (if you don’t watch this show you need to re-evaluate your life), or her adorably quirky style, or it could be because she makes great music.
Her band, She & Him (the “she” being Deschanel and the “him” being M. Ward) has just released their new single “Never Wanted Your Love,” and I have to say, it’s amazing! I love how her unique personality translates so well to this type of music.
Check it out here:
Like what you hear? Below are a few more great songs from the indie-folk duo:
Dear College Humor,
One word: why?
I like Dave Chappelle. I also really like Zooey Deschanel. But this monstrosity that you have bestowed upon us may just be the most frightening thing I’ve ever seen. I never thought I would ever live to see Zooey’s large, soulful eyes paired up with Dave’s facial hair. It’s not a pleasant visual experience, but yet, here I am still staring at it like the trainwreck it is. Damn you. Damn you all.
This week’s episode did not disappoint on any level. Nick and Schmidt celebrated their ten-year anniversary (their tinaversary) and decided to celebrate by throwing a huge party with an interesting theme. The self-proclaimed Bert and Ernie have been roommates since college and when they shared the milestone with their friends, things got real.
Here are five things that went down this week:
1. He liked it, so he put a ring on it.
Cece’s engaged! Shivrang popped the question, Cece said yes, and it all went down right in front of Schmidt. In true Schmidt fashion he walked off, heartbroken, to later tell Nick he thought he was “going to be the one to bang her for the rest of her life.” I think Nick speaks for everyone when he replied. “We all did, man.” Fear not though, Schmece fans (did that work? Can we make this catch on? It’s a lot more difficult to Branjelina names like that, alright?)! A date for their upcoming nuptials hasn’t been set and the season isn’t over yet.
2. Winston’s cock-blocking.
“I don’t have game, and I can take away game.” Winston tries his best to keep Jess from getting to Jax McTavish (Steve Howey of Shameless and Reba), safety for the San Francisco 49ers, but to no avail. It’s hilarious to watch him try though! Jax shoots himself in the foot though with a couple of absolutely hilarious meltdowns and inappropriately premature proclamations of love. Hearing Jax wailing in the background when Cece and Jess were talking? I can’t even. Well done, sir. Well done.
3. Moustachioed Nick and fat Schmidt. Read more…
The internet can sometimes be a scary place. Animals act like humans, people eat things that they really shouldn’t be eaten and faces get swapped. Sometimes, the celebrities do look better as their romantic love interests. Other times, the result can be quite frightening.
Here are just some of the unsettling face swaps to float around the internet.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
Harry Styles and Taylor Swift
Harry Styles and a Koala
Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Read more…
If you’re anything like me, you’re a complete weirdo and base your wardrobe off of people who don’t exist. In the past, I’ve looked to fictional characters like Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series and Angela Chase from My So-Called Life for wardrobe inspiration. I’ve always felt like we have some sort of connection to the fictional characters we cherish most. One way to emulate them is through our wardrobes, as though they’re a part of our everyday lives and inspiration. No matter what books you read, what television shows you watch, or movies you love — there’s always that one character who wows you with their style.
Now that I’m in university, I try not to dress like an eccentric witch with blonde, curly locks. However there’s no reason to take the fun out of a wardrobe just because you’re all grown up. Here are a few very lovely fictional characters who would be fantastic muses for your college wardrobe.
1. Denise Huxtable from The Cosby Show
There’s a whole part of society dedicated to Denise Huxtable appreciation. Though The Cosby Show was about a sweet and funny family, Denise’s wardrobe was always something to admire.
Why it would work for college: There’s a tiny part in all of us that secretly wishes to impress our friends with our wardrobes. I truly feel like Denise’s style would do that. Her style is casual while also making bold statements with reds and printed headbands.
2. Emily Fields from Pretty Little Liars
When they’re not trying to figure out who A is, the characters of Pretty Little Liars have always shown off their unique sense of style. Each character has their own fashion flare, but Emily in particular is bothsporty and edgy at the same time.
Why it would work for college: Emily is known for her athleticism, especially in swimming. While Aria might wear more cutting edge pieces, Emily’s wardrobe is perfect for varsity athletes constantly balancing their academic and athletic roles.
3. John Bender from The Breakfast Club
John Bender might not seem like boyfriend material, but he does have potential “boyfriend” style. It’s kind of hard not to feel like a rebel while wearing a worn-out denim jacket, and paired with the “I don’t care” attitude of this Brat Pack member, you’ll look like a walking teen icon from the 80s.
Why it would work for college: The over-sized jacket will keep you warm during those long commutes to school. It’s also suitable for weekend detentions (although I’ve never heard of that in college.) If that happens, then you’re a rebel for sure.
4. Cher Horowitz from Clueless
Once you admit to yourself that Clueless is like, the best movie/television show of all time, you’ll start to realize that the best part of it is the fashion. Literally every single character in the film, especially Dionne and Cher, has the grooviest style. Maybe I’m totally buggin’ to think that anyone else could pull of their preppy, plaid-filled wardrobe. As if!
Why it would work for college: Although Cher is in high school, her wardrobe was made for a college student. Cher somehow manages to look ready for a job interview (or in her case, a driving test) all the time, which is good for a college student embarking on pursuits in the real world.
5. Hilary Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
I’m going to do things a little different this week just because the Emmys took place this past Sunday and there were a lot of amazing looks to choose from. So many looks in fact that it was really hard to narrow them all down to an itty bitty list. It was really nice to see a wide array of colours (even some really bold ones!) this year, as the Emmys tend to be a pretty good indicator of the beginning of the fall fashion season.
Before we get to the Emmys, let’s squeeze in a very dapper Harry Styles at the Burberry show during last week’s London Fashion Week. The One Direction member went solo (although word has it he was there to see rumoured girlfriend Cara Delevigne, a Burberry model) to the event wearing a heathered grey blazer, a white Oxford shirt buttoned at the collar, black skinny pants, and black leather ankle boots. Not only is this a crisp and clean look but Styles balances it out with that wild and shaggy mane of his.
Zooey shouldn’t feel blue for not winning an award but she did get to present an award with super geek Sheldon Cooper (also known as Jim Parsons in the real world). She should also feel good for wearing such a dreamy pale blue strapless Reem Acra dress, with nice draping detail in the bodice and a full (but very light) tulle skirt. We also need to give Deschanel snaps for her TV inspired nails (nail art has become a major but very fun way to accessorize looks). Check out the other successful blue ladies: Jane Levy, Sarah Paulson, Hayden Panettierre, Heidi Klum, and Edie Falco.
Shall we blame Fifty Shades of Grey for the resurgence of this steely color? Whatever the inspiration, grey has proven to be more than just a blah neutral colour. As seen in Van Camp’s grey chiffon J. Mendel gown which has nice sheer and ruched details around the bodice. This shows just how sweet and stunning a grey dress can be. (Note how her diamond accents pop off the grey colour!) Other notable grey gowns: Sarah Hyland, Morena Baccarin and Kate Mara.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Rob Kardashian isn’t going to law school after all and Joss Whedon signs deal to stay in the Marvel Universe.
HIT: Joss Whedon to stay with the Marvel Universe
Whedon just signed a contract with Marvel and Disney to direct Avengers 2 and a develop a live-action Marvel-based television series for ABC. I’m a bit apprehensive of a live-action TV series, but if anyone can do it, it’s the cult-creating phenom Whedon. Also, I may just lose it if he helps broker a deal between Sony and Disney to include Spiderman (Andrew Garfield) in the next Avengers film. Please Whedon, make it happen!
MISS: Rob Kardashian NOT going to law school
It doesn’t seem Rob will be following in his father’s footsteps after all (his real dad was O.J. Simpson’s lawyer). It was news to the University of Southern California when the Kardashian tweeted that he would be attending law school there (“Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can’t wait! School just never ends for me! #UniversityofSouthernCal#Trojans #FightOn”). Representatives from USC’s Gould School of Law said the Kardashian didn’t even apply. At least he pretended he has more ambition than selling his soul for money. We can’t say the same for his sisters!
HIT: Zooey Deschanel spotted with her new guy
The queen of all things quirky and cute (even at 32) has been spotted stealing a kiss from current beau, screenwriter Jamie Linden. While she told Marie Claire magazine she didn’t have time to date, he seems like someone you make time for. He’s pretty cute and has got to be romantic considering he did help write the screenplay for Dear John.

Image seems to be everything in Hollywood (unfortunately) but once in a while two celebrities emerge that seem like the EXACT SAME PERSON. Of course, they’re not really — they both have unique careers and personalities but they share a similar look (see Rihanna and Rita Ora above). Then you end up googling whether or not they’re related (half siblings, third cousins, blood sisters) and realize you were wrong all along.
Which celebs do you think have an uncanny resemblance to eachother?
Nina Dobrev and Victoria Justice
Sarah Hyland and Mila Kunis

For all those people who fervently believe celebrities are in fact robots who don’t have any feelings, Jimmy Kimmel has a message for you. Pull up your pants, do some serious self reflection and STOP bullying people on Twitter. In fact, many celebrities do read your mean tweets and are hurt by them. If you insist on trolling because it’s in your genes or something, then at least use your real name.
Over the past little while, Kimmel has been rounding up celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kristen Stewart, Snooki, Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel, to read some of the mean tweets they received from the Twitterverse. Apparently Stewart was better as a boy and Snooki has a vagina as big as an ocean (unnecessary rumor control: neither of these are true).
Ultimately, I think it’s a good idea that Twitter and YouTube are encouraging people to buck up and use their real names so they can clean up the discourse. Here’s the test: if you wouldn’t post a comment with your real name, then it’s best no to post it at all!

When it came to last night’s Teen Choice Awards, there were no glaring sartorial errors. If I had one complaint it’s that some of the styles were a little safe and boring. We saw tons of classic silhouettes and brights colours walking down the pink carpet.
Taylor Swift (above) was the big winner of the night, snatching her 20th trophy, which is the most won by a female artist EVER. Last night she won five awards: choice female artist, female country artist, single by a female artist for “Eyes Open,” country song for “Sparks Fly” and choice movie voice for “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.” WOA. She wins as one of my favourite stylistas of the night, opting for a white dress by Maria Lucia Hohan. The back was beautifully cut and I love the sheer straps.
On this week’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance — the 200th ever might I add — we’re finally introduced to this season’s Top 20. We’re also introduced to the adjudicating styles of princess of quirk, Zooey Deschanel, who looked lovely but in all honesty, had little to add to the panel. And Nigel, in SYTYCD’s constant attempt to change up the show, dropped the very big news that there will be not one but two winners this season! Now there’s no need to choose between your top guy and girl, you can have your cake and eat it too!
Here are the top five moments from this week’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance:
1. Team Ballroom makes it through — Throughout the whole competition thus far, one of the main concerns has been whether ballroom dancers and besties Whitney Carson and Lindsay Arnold would both make the show. And with their matching wavy blonde hair and tanned skin, they could easily pass for twins. They draw out the suspense, bringing both girls in at the same time and calling Whitney’s named first. But even the judges couldn’t split up these two hot tamales and the pair strutted their stuff right into the Top 20 with a fiery ballroom routine.
2. The baseball routine — Read more…
With the success of movies such as My Week With Marilyn, it is no surprise that biopic rumours are spreading fast in Hollywood. But which ones are true and which ones are false? It’s time to play my favorite game Fact or Fiction!
1) Harry Styles to star in a flick about Mick Jagger?
Though Harry’s publicist hasn’t confirmed whether he’ll be staring in this flick it has been confirmed that a film about Mick Jagger is in the works. It’ll be called Exile On Main St. in honour of the Rolling stones’ tenth album. The movie will revolve around the Rolling Stones’ frontman and guitarist Keith Richards and will be produced by Richard Branson.
2) Taylor Swift stars in a movie about Joni Mitchell?
The rumours are true! Taylor Swift has been in talks with Sony for months but still hasn’t been officially ask to play the role. I guess only time will tell. The movie will be based on Sheila Weller’s book Girls Like Us, a biography of Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Carly Simon. The crew will consist of Katie Jacobs’s (director), John Sayles (scriptwriter) and and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (producer). Along with Taylor, Alison Pill auditioned to play King. Though the Sony pic hasn’t received the green light yet, it’s set to start production later this year.
3) Zooey Deschanel as Loretta Lynn?
This is a fact! However, it’s not a movie. Zooey Deschanel will be playing Loretta Lynn in a new musical stage show based on the country star’s life story. The 80-year-old singer has been working on a Broadway show based on her 1976 autobiography Coal Miner’s Daughter for a while now. Lynn specifically chose Deschanel as the star and her warm feelings are mutual as Deschanel called Lynn her hero.
4) Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix? Read more…
Turns out Zooey Deschanel has a little brother named Jooey and he’s just as quirky as our favourite indie songbird. He has the same blunt bangs, wears flannel PJs and has a weird country twang.
He also stars in his very own commercial for Siri on the iPhone 4 S and has a lot of questions. Some include: Is it raining? What year is it? And of course, do you want to take a soup bath?
Zooey Deschanel can pull of the quirkiness a lot more than her pyjama-wearing brother, who premiered his commercial on Funny or Die. He kind of reminds me of 30 Rock’s Kenneth. I’m eagerly awaiting the premiere episode of New Guy.
Watch it here:
In the meantime, Siri has been acting kind of b*tchy lately. When asked about Zooey Deschanel she acted like she didn’t even know the chick. Check it out below:

On tonight’s finale, tears were almost shed at the thought of Nick moving out of the apartment to move in with his old girlfriend Caroline in their brand new place. Also, there’s trouble in paradise with Cece and Schmidt when jealousy rears its ugly head. But in true New Girl fashion, the episode ends with a rad pajama dance party.
Here’s what I learned on last night’s New Girl episode, “See Ya.”
1) Nick is leaving. For real. As in we’re only five minutes into the episode and the moving truck is packed and everything. But Jess isn’t so sure that he should go, Winston is scared of the dark without Nick’s lamp, and the new roommate has a creature in a box so that should be enough of a reason for Nick to never, ever leave.
2) Schmidt freaked out at Cece’s photo-shoot and turned into a metrosexual jealous monster. And when Cece tries to talk to him about it, it turns out that he feels that he’s not good enough for her and that she would never be happy with him. He even tries to set her free like a wild jungle cat kept in a basement. It doesn’t go over well. Hopefully this isn’t the end of Ce-Schmidt.
3) Nick freaks out over moving in with Caroline and drives about 140 miles past his new apartment. But luckily, a phone call from her calms him down. Unluckily, this occurs a couple seconds after he throws his keys into the desert. Definitely not the best timing. But the gang comes to the rescue to help him out. Read more…

Jess is the new Monica Lewinsky, and Cece and Schmidt are talking about the “C” word, that’s right guys, ‘commitment.’ Also, Winston’s rocking a really weird earring and the obligatory jokes are pretty much the comedic highlight of the show.
Here’s what I learned on this week’s New Girl, “Backslide.”
1) Jess is in a funk after breaking up with Russell. It’s a lot of the same sad Joni Mitchell song, lying on a carpet and roommates trying (and failing) at cheering her up. Luckily, it works just enough to get her out of her room so we don’t have to be subjected to the sight of seeing Caroline booty pop any longer.
2) Backsliding. It’s a condition that occurs post break-up, when you go crawling back to your ex and make everything messier than it was before. You want to avoid this by any means necessary. Playing keep-away with someone’s phone may be one of these means. Thank you Schmidt for improving my vocabulary, one made-up word at a time. Read more…
