There was a lot of messy fashion at the SAG Awards last night (prepare yourself accordingly after that jump below!). But obviously any effort that was put in was immediately cancelled out the second Kate Hudson returned to the scene of last year’s fashion crime and fully outdid herself in a fluffy Valentino vision of countrified love. I say love because, duh, the hearts a’plenty, but also because I love this dress. What’s not to love? Black velvet (check), pink beauty pageant chiffon (check), a high-lace neckline with corresponding bib of ruffles (checking furiously). The only thing missing is a pink parasol. Kate probably left it in the limo for fear of being mistaken for Miley Cyrus in a knock-off production of My Fair Lady called Decent Lookin’ Gal.
Here’s who else showed up and sizzled eyeballs with style.
Hollywood decided to wear black at the Golden Globes last Sunday night in silent protest of the industry’s sexual assault problem. But four days later, most Hollywood people at the Critics’ Choice Awards went with color.
Kate Bosworth didn’t wear color, but she did wear a mess. Kate is wearing a dress by Brock Collection, but if I hadn’t been told who made her dress, I’d assume she went into a formal event showroom on a particularly dry day, collected too much static electricity while trying on a bridal gown with her socks on, and accidentally left the store with a child’s christening gown that was stuck to her. The best part is that the fun didn’t end when Kate turned around.
The American Music Awards aired on CBS last night in order for you to have something to talk about with your weird cousin Trisha over Thanksgiving weekend. The AMA’s are the perfect empty vessel in which to hold your familial conversational obligations. That said, a few attendees did come to slay. Like Hailee Steinfeld, who, thanks to that leather bra and sharp shoulder pad situation, is seen giving you The Bodyguard starring a young Joan Crawford.
Attention enthusiasts know that the Emmys are a tasteful affair; you’ve got to balance out your ass with some class. Thankfully, Ariel Winter showed everyone last night how to do it. Ariel came in a dress by Steven Khalil featuring not one, but two crotch-high leg slits. Angelina, who? I’m sure her dress was very expensive, so for those of you hoping to find the look for less, I would probably suggest Craigslist the day after the next AVN awards.
The MTV Movie & TV Awards are really one of the awards shows in which one can wear whatever one wants. Milo Ventimiglia, for example, put on his best “70s divorced dad trolling the singles bars” look. And Chrissy Metz from This Is Us decided she wanted to wear a latex ensemble while presenting the Best Duo award with her TV dad.
Almost all famous people have a pre-fame story about how they were so broke before their big break that they had to eat ramen-style flour paste strips seasoned with the salt from their tears for every meal. Chrissy Metz, aka Kate from This Is Us, knows the struggle of being a broke actor all too well.
Chrissy told Glamour magazine about her bank account woes during a recent interview. Chrissy says she grew up sans-money in Florida, which is living life on expert level. Once she got to Los Angeles, she lived with five other girls in a two-bedroom apartment in Burbank. Eventually she landed a role on American Horror Story: Freak Show, but she didn’t get any work for a year afterwards. By the time she booked This Is Us, Chrissy claims she had a mere 81 cents in her bank account. My bank account just scoffed “So? Get back to me when you try to use your card on a single Timbit and it gets declined.”
But don’t cry for Chrissy. She’s got that NBC cash now. Plus This Is Us just got renewed for a second and third season, which means she’s also got that sweet, sweet job security.
Thankfully for Chrissy, she lived in Burbank. There’s a giant IKEA in Burbank (and about to be an even bigger one), and that place can come in real handy when your wallet is light. Chrissy’s 81 cents would truly go far there. She could get her a nutritious IKEA hotdog and a water cup that she could sneakily fill up with lingonberry soda when no one is looking.
