Any new viewers from the last post? What did y'all think? This past episode was good at bringing everybody back into the complex and creating a whole new set of problems. I hope they don't get rid of the lawyer, Chris, and use him to go against Kal. Kal's booty call ways tyfyt.

The Telluride Film Festival concluded in Colorado earlier this week, and as is the case most years, festival-goers have already pegged a few movies as early Oscar frontrunners.
If you're the type of person that already has their eye on their local Oscar pool, we have a few suggestions for films you'll need to know when award season roles around.
"At Any Price"
This racing drama could win favor with two different types of moviegoers. The director, Ramin Bahrani, has been a darling of the independent film scene for years with films like "Man Push Cart" and "Goodbye Solo" and a flawless record for minimalistic, human stories. "At Any Price" marks his most mainstream effort to date, as made clear by his two leading men Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid, who could help Bahrani find his biggest audience yet. "At Any Price" won over crowds at Telluride and could make a strong, but modest showing later this year.
Ben Affleck surprised everyone at Telluride, not only by deciding to premiere his next directorial effort in a previously unannounced festival screening, but also by the fact that "Argo" was easily one of the best reviewed films of the festival. The fact-based story of a previously confidential CIA mission to liberate U.S. citizens from hostile Iran played overwhelmingly well, many praising it as smart, suspenseful thriller. "Argo" opens on October 12.
Noah Baumbach is back with a stripped-down approach to the kind of drama he's known for making. Once again teaming with real-life love interest Greta Gerwig, Baumbach tells a simple tale, using black-and-white video, and the critics have declared the writer-director never better.
"Hyde Park on Hudson"
Though the film and its star received mostly mixed reviews, casting Bill Murray in the role of FDR is sure to grab some attention and potentially Oscar votes. Look at the facts: stunt casting, plus historical figure, plus physical handicap. Need we say more?
In this true crime drama, Michael Shannon kills people… lots of people. Shannon has always stuck close to the Best Actor race, and the way people have been writing about his performance in "The Iceman," he may be headed back to Oscar night for the nomination he deserved for "Take Shelter."
As much as I'd like for 'At Any Price' to get awards, it probably won't, but I still like the thought. 'Argo' and 'The Iceman' are real contendors though imho. A little disappointed that Bill Murray doesn't have a tag.

She's done it again. With unlikely nail color and a few dramatic hand gestures, the First Lady has catapulted a new beauty trend into the mainstream.
On Tuesday during her impassioned speech at the Democratic National Convention, the First Lady's blue-gray nails got as much buzz as her Tracy Reese dress. Equal parts Katy Perry and high school goth, the color was an unusual choice for a political figure, no less a woman over 30. But Michelle Obama doesn't follow style rules, she reinvents them.
By the second day of the convention, Michelle's gray nails were still intact and beauty bloggers were on a mission to identify her polish of choice. Was it Chanel? O.P.I?
A Wall Street Journal reporter confirmed the answer with the White House. Michelle was wearing (drum roll, please) the Artistic Nail Design Soak Off Colour Gloss in "Vogue."
The bad news: It's a kind of polish mostly available in salons only. The good news: Salons are stocking up on it.
By Thursday morning, Artistic Nail Design's U.S. headquarters was flooded with requests from manicurists interested in "stocking the Artistic Colour Gloss color that Michelle Obama was seen wearing," according to the beauty company's spokesperson.
"We’ve seen a 90% increase in calls, for this color alone," the rep told Yahoo! Shine on Thursday. "At this moment, we currently have around 1,000 bottles in stock and we will be getting stock up to at least 5,000 to prepare for the influx of orders that we are receiving."
Because the $15.95 polish is a long-lasting, chip resistant gel that requires a UV light source for drying, it's mainly applied by the pros. While many women are converts, the chemical ingredients in the formula have been criticized for their potential to cause allergic reactions and nail damage.
On the plus side, your nail color lasts for 21 days without chipping. That's a big selling point when you and your hands are about to step up to a podium in front of millions.
The type of polish may have bee a no-brainer for Michelle, but how did she decide on the unconventional color? Maybe she looked to the runway. Gray polish has been a bonafide trend on the runway since 2011, when Rag and Bone's designers sent backstage tweets of their models' nails, and Dior debuted Vernis Gris Montaigne, a darker gray polish.
Everyone from beauty bloggers to color-obsessed tweens have jumped on the trend. But after Tuesday, gray nails have gone mainstream.
In that pic they actually give off a lilac-ish tint to me. The First Lady of Style tyfyt <3
Which bitch will smize their way to a modeling contract & become the next Cindy Pawford?
Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashleigh and Pudsey host, David Walliams doing voiceovers. X Factor contestant Stacey Solomon, fashion model Lilah Parsons and Hollywood dog agent Addison Witt search & judge Britain’s most mutterly gorgeous dog.
The show brings the glamorous world of modelling together with Britain's love of dogs. Top Dog Model seeks to find a true doggie star - the new Cindy Pawford, Claudia Sniffer, Naomi Spaniel or Elle Macfurson perhaps.
The pooches will go head-to-head as they are tested for their suitability as models through a series of dog-eat-dog modeling assignments, including photo and video shoots as well as challenges designed to test their poise and behaviour. It’s not just looks alone that will crown our furry favourite, as personality and star quality will need to shine through too.
The contest is hotting up as only one mutterly gorgeous dog will land an advertising campaign for a well-known international brand.
Episode one sees dogs of all breeds, colours, shapes and sizes arrive from across the country for the first stage of auditions to strut their stuff in front of our judges. One by one the dogs and their owners meet the judges to see who has the necessary bow-wow factor. It’s down to the judges to decide which are the best to be chosen to attend an exclusive Paw Camp.
The judges see endless entertainment from the dogs, but who will they want to see more of? They see lots of amazing unique tricks, a musical performance, a dog that plays the piano, an owner who gives his gigantic dog a piggy back and the judges even get a royal visit. The judges are tough but who will get their seal of approval and make it through to the next stage and head to Paw Camp.
The dog owners believe their prized pet has the star quality to make it all the way to the end. They are in it to win it but which pooch has what it takes to be top dog above the rest?
There will be weekly eliminations by our expert panel of judges who will analyse the hounds’ hottest headshots and eliminate the weakest performer, ultimately leading to one lucky dog being crowned the country's Top Dog Model.
All the models:
First up is Bailey - this cheeky chappy has shown that he knows how to accessorise by wearing a lovely white and red scarf.
She may be named Boo, but we don't think there's anything remotely scary about this lovely dog. We reckon she looks like she could be a bit of a diva though.
Now that's a high-fashion shot! Bow has clearly been watching America's Next Top Model, as she's managed to master the art of the 'smize' (smiling with your eyes). That's pretty advanced stuff.
Aw - we just want to play with Brindle - how cute does he look?! He looks like he's a lot of fun - will he be able to take the tough industry of dog modeling seriously?
Carlos is bringing a bit of Latin charm to the competition - those bitches better watch out, he looks like a bit of a ladies' man.
Does Daisy have what it takes to be the new Cindy Pawford? She looks very confident!
Hendrix looks like he has his eyes on the prize. His focus will help him in the various challenges.
Isla is adorable! The competition isn't just about looks though, as each dog must have a talent. From playing the piano to performing tricks, each pooch must impress the judges.
Kingston showed off his cutting-edge fashion sense with this cute nautical number. Each of the 15 finalists must compete with each other at Paw Camp - only the toughest mutts will make it through.
Will Lucky be fortunate enough to win the competition?
Peppermint certainly looks sweet - but is she willing to cut a bitch to be crowned top dog?
Princess looks like she's done this before! She opted to wear a cute pink dress for the shoot.
Simba may be plus-size but he's still beautiful! Will he be able to win the competition?
Sparky looks very alert in this snap. Hopefully his attentiveness will help him win!
How cute is Waddle?! He looks a little glum in this picture - we bet he'll perk up once he gets in the swing of the competition.

It started straightforwardly enough. I was going to L.A. to interview one of the biggest stars in the world about her upcoming film. At 21, Kristen Stewart had just been listed by Forbes magazine as the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, a wealth largely due to Twilight, the vampire franchise in which she plays virgin idol, Bella Swan. The quintessential emo, famed for her baity persona, Stewart was second only to Kate Middleton in terms of public interest, an interest nurtured by our fascination with her off-screen courtship with co-star Robert Pattinson, which had tantalized the world with its are-they, aren’t-they narrative for years.
In this instance, however, Stewart was promoting a smaller, indie project: Walter Salles’s film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s mostly autobiographical hipster classic On the Road. The book had been a passion of hers for years – of course it had! – and she’d lobbied and lobbied for the part of 16-year old Marylou (the free spirit based on Neal Cassady’s wife LuAnne, who also enjoyed a love affair with Kerouac). Maylous was a million miles away from Stewart’s neurotic and clumsy-to-the-point-of-syspraxic Swan; the perfect breakaway role. Like I said, it all seemed pretty straightforward.
And so we met, on a lovely sunny day at Casita del Campo, a gloomy, near-empty Mexican restaurant, not far from the Los Feliz mansion she shared with Pattinson. A tiny, intense presence, dressed in faded grey skinnies, she looked like a little doll as she slid into the booth. She had personally picked the venue, a) because there were sure to be no “cockroaches” (her word for the paparazzi) lurking in the bushes; and b) because, being a cool Silver Lake chick, she loves Mexican food. “I don’t even know why I’m looking at the menu,” she sighed, as she half-heartedly swiped a chip in the salsa. “I already made myself lunch.”
With her reputation for bolshiness (all that gurning and insistent wearing of trainers on the red carpet and so forth), I’d half-expected the meeting to be one of those classic journalistic struggles, but, in fact, she turned out to be excellent company; interesting, interested, articulate, funny, easy. She spoke carefully, with precision; a Valley Girl, sure, with all the “dudes” and the “likes”, but an articulate, measured one.
She was especially droll and affectionate about her upbringing in the San Fernando Valley; how her mother, Jules, a scriptwriter/artist/”doer to the point of OCDness”, has a proper tattoo sleeve, hair extensions and a dog that’s part wolf; how she has decorated almost every ceiling in the house with one of her crazy Alice in Wonderland mural; and how Kristen and her brother Cameron would come home from school and there Jules might be “ripping out a bathroom” because she was bored. She joked about how her dad, Bill, a stage manager with waist-length hair, had suddenly developed a thing for fashion and was “beginning to look like Karl Lagerfeld. He keeps asking me to get him a Balenciaga man-bag and I keep saying, ‘Dad? Absolutely not!”
And she was most forthcoming about On the Road, a copy of which decorated the dashboard of her first car when she was 16. We talked about how the part was a big departure from anything she had done previously. For one thing, there was nudity aplenty. In one scene, she, Sam Riley and Garrett Hedlund (who play Kerouac and Cassady respectively) attempt a threesome. In another, she gives them hand jobs simultaneously. But Stewart was up for it all. “Walter made us confident,” she said animatedly, but awkward in her desire to make herself clear. “He totally primed us to be in a position to do those things. We’d thought about it all so much that by the time we got to the set the story kind of worked its way through us. Like, we were vessels or something. In a way, I can’t take credit for any of it.”
Said Walter Salles, via email: “I met Kristen in Los Angeles. She knew On the Road inside out, and understood the character better than anyone I had met up to that point. LuAnne was decades ahead of her time. She was a free-spirited, non-judgemental young woman… but it was probably very difficult to be in her position in the late Forties, early Fifties, a constant challenge. Kristen understood this duality, the fact that the exhilarating moments had a painful counterpart.”
For someone whose reputation is so je m’en fous, Stewart was keen to declare how she had never thought of herself as a rebel at all. She described herself as the kind of kid who got panic attacks about her marks in school, and an adult who “always overthinks the though… Like how do you think of nothing?” It was, she conjectured, probably why she found the Beat Generation era so seductive. “What the fuck do I know, but I think that’s why the book will always be relevant. There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. It’s not necessarily a rebellious thing, it’s just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t even alive then…
“It’s the loyalty aspect of it all,” she went on in her low, earnest way. “I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do. People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive on that, and fuck anybody who doesn’t.”
When I mentioned her upcoming nuptial with Pattinson (as had been reported that week in the tabloids, along with designs for the cake, the dress and details that Katy Perry was to be a bridesmaid), she merely shrugged her little dolly shoulders with the resignation of one long, long used to fantastical speculation and sighed. “Hey, they’re all fucking nuts. It changes every day. This whole, am I fashionable, am I not? Am I going out with my boyfriend, am I not? There’s never one constant. Of course it’s seductive and important, what people think about you, but you can’t pay attention. They can say what they want…”
They do say what they want. And sometimes you do have to pay attention. A month later, the same magazines that had described her “wedding” in such detail published pictures of her embracing not Pattinson but another man, Rupert Sanders, the British director of Snow White and the Huntsman, in which Stewart starred. Sanders is married to the model Liberty Ross, who played Stewart’s birth mother in the same film, and he is 21 years her senior.
A billion Twi-hard hearts convulsed with grief. The “Rob-sten” fantasy? Shattered? Overnight, she was receiving death threats, pilloried as the most hated homewrecker in Hollywood. Debate roiled and raged about how long the relationship had been going on. Then came Stewart’s almost implausibly contrite apology: “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most: Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.” Sanders even more contrite apology followed soon after.
The truth of it all? In the time since, I’ve scrolled back through my tapes and notes to glean clues as to what might have happed and have found few lightbulb absolutes.
“You know when your blood pressure goes up and you are excited and you literally reach for your heart,” Stewart had said at one point over lunch that day, while describing life in general. “That’s the reason I wanted to make Snow White. It physically felt like the right thing to do.” And to work with the first-time Brit director Sanders? “Omigod,” she had said, eyes fluttering skyward,”just, I mean, to die.”
Sanders was similarly effusive about her, taking time out to speak to me from his holiday in Hawaii. “She’d burnt her lower pelvis area, quite low down,” he had said of his first impression of the actress. “She was bandaging a bad burn there, in her very tight jeans, with a Camel clamped between her teeth. That was my very first image of her. She’s got this masculine edge. She’s like this beautiful tomboy or something. What surprised me most when I met Kristen was how unlike the character of Bella Swan she was in real life,” he added. “She was so tough, so grown up. She was exactly the modern badass version of Snow White that I was looking for. I wanted that young, spirited, rebellious warrior, and she epitomized all of that.”
“She and Liberty didn’t have very many scenes together,” he said, when I asked whether she and his wife were friends, “so they didn’t get to know each other that well. But they definitely have similarities. There’s a look they share. Kristen is almost like royalty the way she understands what she has to do, in the way that she has learnt to compartmentalize… Well, Lib’s quite ‘regal’ or something as well.”
Royalty, regal, spirited warrior. Stewart is a warrior, of sorts. Albeit a warrior, as Sanders once put it, with the weight of the world on her shoulders. She’s got that rock’n’roll edge, too, as played to perfection in her role as Joan Jett in The Runaways. I still have an image in my mind of her turning up on the Vogue shoot, requesting vodka and then downsizing to white wine “because it’s still only morning”.
But here’s the thing. To be 22 and to have assumed that unbelievably heavy mantle of fame and all that it entails… Might we not allow her some human error? Might she not be entitled to make some mistakes as she negotiates her way round a post-Twilight world, a block of time in her life she has likened to being away at school (both she and her brother were mostly home-educated).
“I can’t be a free spirit,” she had said, almost imploringly, at one point when we first met. “Not in a normal, relatable way anyway. I can’t even do my own groceries or walk through a mall. How could I be? But at the same time, there are always different ways I can explore my freedom. My country is definitely a smaller place to the way it was in On the Road, but that doesn’t mean the spirit will ever go away.”
The second and last time we met, Stewart and I were taking a cigarette break on the steps of the Hotel Particulier in Montmartre, where a dinner was being thrown in honour of her and Nicolas Ghesquiere. It was about a week after our first meeting and she was as disarmingly friendly and chatty as ever. As the face of the new Balenciaga fragrance, Florabotanica, Stewart was very much on show, in a baby-blue silk corset dress from the latest collection and high, patent ankle boots. Earlier, Ghesquiere had told me how he adored her ability to subert the red-carpet tradition; he loved the way was such a symbol of “tetchy youthfulness” and what fun she was to collaborate with on different looks.
Stewart had just returned from Sydney with Sanders and her Snow White co-star Chris Hemsworth on the last leg of the film’s promotional tour. She seemed a little tired (those slight bags under her eyes were a bit more pronounced, and she seemed almost a little constrained by all her finery), but – with that cigarette placed behind her back, like she was behind a bike shed, and a drink in hand – she was in full swing. In retrospect, perhaps dangerously so.
“My God, I’m so in love with my boyfriend,” she suddenly confided, squeezing her fists and stiffening that little body with anticipation. “I wish he were here now. I think I want to have his babies.”
Had I heard her right? Wasn’t her “boyfriend” the one thing she never talked about? To anyone? And yet here we were. “God, I miss him,” she said, raking her hair back and exhaling a plume of smoke. “I love the way he smells. And him me. Like, he loves to lick under my armpits. I don’t get this obsession with washing the smell off. That smell of someone you love. Don’t you think it’s the whole point?”
Looking back, the exchange still feels surreal. It took place just three weeks before those incriminating pictures were allegedly taken. Was she even talking about Pattinson? Was she having me on? Who knows?
I think back to something she said before in that crazy restaurant about wanting to be her own person, and not having to conform to expectations.
“Um, how do I put this perfectly?” she said, so concentrating on getting it out right that her knee started to jiggle. “Look. I know if you haven’t thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition. But, dude, honestly? I can’t. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be! It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t.”
As we go to press, the story keeps changing, and people’s expectations are shifting daily. The premiere of Breaking Dawn (the final Twilight installment) and its attendant red-carpet rounds are yet to go ahead. Pattinson is said to have moved out of the Los Feliz house amid fabulous gossip concerning custody of the couple’s dog, Bear. Sanders, slated to make a further Snow White with Stewart, is yet to confirm his plans. He has not removed his wedding ring.
Work wise, Stewart won the plum role of Peyton Loftis – in the film of William Styron’s 1951 novel Lie Down in Darkness – the one she was supposed, mistakenly, to be feuding over with Jennifer Lawrence. Then there is Cali, on which she has her first producing credit. Professionally speaking, a cynic might wonder, could the current brouhaha work in her favour?
Again, who knows? One thing, though, is that Stewart did not strike me as a bad person. Not at all. Just a young, attractive, intelligent woman trying to navigate her way through the bullshit. So cut her some slack, OK?

Daniel Craig as a blue steel-eyed James Bond captured the spy’s cold and ruthless manner (as described by creator Ian Fleming) in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. However, absent was the swagger and dry air of sophistication that Craig’s predecessors brought to the role, in varying amounts. The character had become less a suave agent carrying out his orders for queen and country, more a morally-compromised killing machine whose disillusionment recalls Matt Damon as Jason Bourne – rather than Sean Connery as 007 going back to Dr. No.
It’s for those reasons that Craig’s run as James Bond has been heralded by some, decried by others. Earlier this year, Bond series producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson announced their interest in locking Craig down to portray 007 for the next decade (or, rather, five films) following the release of Skyfall this November. That public revelation rallied masses of Craig supporters and detractors alike – prompting arguments about just what, exactly, makes for a good screen version of the character (and whether or not Craig has it).
That was well before marketing got properly underway for Skyfall, with trailers and behind-the-scenes footage suggesting that director Sam Mendes’ promises to deliver a proper Bond movie (as he puts it, “a big fabulous escapist movie” for the 21st century) are more than just hot air. Craig remains physically-fierce and hardened in the face as ever, but his 007 appears to undergo a humbling metamorphosis in Skyfall, evolving from a glorified thug (armed with a gun and a license to kill) into a classier, but still deadly, government employee. Hence, the overall reception could be more positive for today’s announcement that Craig has worked out a deal to return as 007 for two additional films after Skyfall.
MI6 is confirming the new contract for Craig, but points out there’s a precedent for Bond actors dropping their commitment early – as happened with both Connery and Timothy Dalton. Moreover, EON Productions heads are said to have enjoyed the non-aggressive production timeline for the 23rd Bond film, resulting from a prolonged break between Quantum of Solace and Skyfall (as a result of MGM’s financial woes). That could mean the studio will be less inclined to adhere to a rigid two-year break between installments from hereon out – and, if an extended delay were to occur, it could encourage Craig to walk away prematurely after just one more Bond film.
However, there are currently no signs that EON Productions has plans to do that, seeing how it’s already gone and set screenwriters to begin developing the next two Bond films starring Craig. The actor has let it be known he does not intend to take on another role until after the new year – and the slow progress on David Fincher’s The Girl Who Played with Fire adaptation (where Craig would reprise his role as investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist) ensures the actor won’t have any other priorities demanding his attention in the foreseeable future.
Are you excited to see Craig play James Bond for (at least) two more films?
Skyfall opens in U.S. theaters on November 9th, 2012.
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are separating after nine years of marriage, Us Weekly has learned exclusively. "It's very amicable," a source says. The couple's rep confirms the separation to Us.
The couple, who wed on August 29, 2003, are parents to sons Archie, 3, and Abel, 2. Saturday Night Live alum Poehler, 40, and Up All Night actor Arnett, 42, have frequently appeared onscreen together, in both TV and film.
Their joint credits include Arrested Development, Blades of Glory, Horton Hears a Who!, On Broadway, Spring Breakdown and Monsters vs. Aliens. Arnett also guest starred in an episode of Poehler's NBC smash comedy Parks and Recreation in 2010.
"People think we sit around and make each other laugh and stuff," Poehler told USA Today of their bond in 2007. "But we're real homebodies."
This was the first marriage for Poehler and the second for Arnett, who was wed to actress Penelope Ann Miller, 48, for one year until divorcing in 1995.
Poehler is currently nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, both for Parks and Recreation. Arnett is also nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series category for his role as Devon Banks on NBC's 30 Rock.
Although NBC passed on David E. Kelly's much talked about pilot based on the longstanding comic book heroine, it's now being reported that The CW network is developing one alongside Warner Bros Television and DC Entertainment
Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights, Red Dawn) was set to star in the title role of NBC's Wonder Woman, a series that would a reinvent the iconic DC Comics' character as a vigilante crime fighter and successful corporate executive in Los Angeles. The show's theme would revolve around Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life. Elizabeth Hurley, Cary Elwes and Justin Bruening were also set to star in the series.
After months of controversy surrounding the project due to widespread displeasure over everything from the Wonder Woman suit to the series' storyline, NBC opted to pass on airing the pilot and no other network picked it up. Now it's being reported that the Amazonian princess may get another chance to make her return to the small screen.
The CW is now developing a script for a Wonder Woman series that would tell the origin of the character. Vulture has the scoop: "The new take on the comic book crime fighter is being written by Allan Heinberg (Grey's Anatomy, The O.C.) under the working title Amazon. Unlike past TV incarnations, it will focus on Wonder Woman as a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty. (Think Smallville, but instead of a "no tights, no flights" rule, this show might have a "no bracelets, no crown" mandate.) Heinberg seems a logical candidate for the job: His resume includes work on the kinds of soapy dramas the CW favors as well as comic-geek street cred (he wrote the Young Avengers comic book series back in 2005)."
The network has another DC Comics-based series, Arrow, scheduled to begin airing this year beginning October 10th.
Exactly six weeks after the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal shattered the hearts of fans, the actress finally emerged into glare of flashbulbs and screaming fans at TIFF.
A radiant KStew (no sign of Robert Pattinson's clothing anywhere) graciously signed autographs at the On the Road screening at Ryerson Theatre Thursday night - responding to frenzied (and often male) shouts of “come on over!”
Stewart wore a mesh and floral appliqué dress, reportedly from Zuhair Murad Couture, and had her dark hair pulled back.
Perhaps it's the Canadian way but a quick poll of the #Robsten fans waiting for a glimpse of Stewart said the couple’s breakup was, “none of our business.”
And if it is, then her partner in canoodling, director Rupert Sanders, is the real villain.
“I hope she holds her head up high,” said Twilight fan Sheila McCall.
On the fashion front, the 2012 Video Music Awards have been a night of surprises. Rihanna debuted an angelic pixie cut, complemented by a simple but sexy white gown, Pink‘s body looked bananas in a tight Stella McCartney frock and America’s favorite gymnasts flaunted their fashion sense, each in their own cute mini dress. Peek our Top 10 Best Dressed below… well…22 if you count each member of One Direction, The Wanted and the Fierce Five.
10. Much less colorful than their 1D counterparts, The Wanted looked like rockstars
9. Rupaul was laid back yet chic in salmon pants, a white blazer and matching white sandals
8. Demi Lovato looked darling in a sequined dress from TopShop, a leather jacket and black booties.
7. Rashida Jones was the definition of nerd chic/HOT
6. Zoe Saldana was sweet and simple in a blush Salvatore Ferragamo long-sleeved mini
5. Gold medal-laden gymnasts McKayla Maroney, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman looked playful and darling
4. We're suckers for One Direction's perfectly coordinated but not matchy-matchy style (tight skinny jeans and all)
3. Emma Watson looked as charming as ever in a Peter Pilotto knit dress
2. Pink rocked her toned bod in a full-length but very fitted Stella McCartney gown
1. Rihanna stunned with her freshly cropped 'do and knot-detailed backless white gown
If you’re anything like me you are always wondering what to do with all that extra money you have laying around. After all, there are only so many 24K gold pilates tables and black market black babies one can buy! Luckily, goop is back with a brand new collaboration that can be all yours for just over $1,600; a wee bit less than what I assume is the average American’s weekly smoothie budget!
These Rag & Bone rags don’t just serve fashion but also function. For instance, if you're looking to piss off your frienemies at vegan Sunday brunch and purge, these leather pants are sure to do the trick! For the nominal price of $935, plus tax, shipping and the life of a cow (no, I don’t mean Kate Winslet…or do I?) you’ll be looking totally stylish…well, not really stylish now, per se, but stylish for, like, the 2001 VMAs???
Or, get ready for Halloween early with the bromley blazer. You’ll dazzle at this year’s costume soiree as a repressed Republican lesbian who un-ironically shops at the Salvation Army for 1980s power-suits or as a Dalton Academy Warbler with a stick up your ass rather than Chris Colfer’s dick. Or maybe you enjoy Chris Colfer’s dick in your ass, I am not here to judge what you do in the bedroom, only the amount of money in your bank account.
Now, while I have nothing but utmost love and the mild revulsion for goop, I can in no way, shape or form condone the purchase of the skinny ankle zip jean. They don’t even cost $200 a pair! I mean, what are they made with? Actual rags? Breathable cotton? The tears of old people? Like, ew! I did NOT have my anus waxed, bleached and surgically shrunken to cover it with chintzy, affordable fabrics. And that's my right as a Bush tax-cut-paying American.
While not all of the new items live up to my high goop standards I, for one, am so happy that goop is back. When it went dark for August, my soul went dark. I mean, I almost forgot how to be white. It’s so embarrassing but once I even accidentally thought I found out who Tyler Perry was. Luckily it was just Kate Winslet with a tan! G(oops), my bad!
