Best and Worst Dressed at the Emmys 2014

After the questionable outfits displayed during the VMA's, I breathe a sigh of relief as this television awards restores the balance in sophisticated fashion (almost).

Best Dressed

Sarah Hyland 
I think blossomed is the most appropriate way to describe Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland who looked positively ravishing on the red carpet in her rouge cream combo. Accentuating her tiny waist yet maintaining a sense of comfort, this outfit was one of my favourites of the night. 

Kristen Wiig
My favourite funnywoman Kristen Wiig always turns out well and the Emmys were no exception. She stunned in this ethereal silk dress with elegant side split, but ever the casual lover, she opted for a bob set in beachy waves. 

Allison Williams 
What's better than a dress with cascading tulle? NOTHING. This dress defines my belief in being brave about mixing up your colour palette. A black bow, pink bodes and nude skirt all wrapped but with a lemon belt is pretty much perfection to me. 

Julia Roberts
Looking hot to trot, acting LEGEND Julia Roberts donned Elie Saab for the red carpet, which had rather inspiring bubble-like embellishments. Midnight blue suits you lady, stick with it!

Clare Danes
Rouge was very much the colour of the night and Clare Danes looked ADORABLE in her lace and brocade dress. A flora-inspired trim and a thin belt finished off her look perfectly, not to mention those sheer triangles in line with her waist that complimented her figure. 

Worst Dressed

Zooey Deschanel
NO! I hoped to never put this lovely lady on this God-awful list but here she is (sad face). This fuchsia nightmare is far from what I expected of Miss Deschanel and where is your fringe? *hyperventilates* bring it back Zooey!

Lena Dunham
Poor Lena got criticised for this outfit so much. I have to say, I am a fan of the wild skirt but darling, that powder pink shirt looks like it came out of Grease. For that reason- BLEURGH. 

Gwen Stefani 
I was so bored by Stefani's outfit on the Emmy's red carpet. Looking like her hair was chemically straightened, she opted to wear her silver maxi dress on her hips. WHO DOES THAT ANYMORE? It's all about the high waist Gwenny. 

Katherine Heigl
Gold is the colour of a winner, but a status I would never bestow on Katherine Heigl in THIS contraption. As silky as a pimp's duvet cover, I couldn't help but be disgusted by this outfit, sorry Heigl. 

Amy Poehler
Again, get over the standard metallics, please? Amy Poehler's dress made her look way larger than she really is and if she was trying to achieve a 1920's Gatsby throwback, she was failing.

Best and Worst Dressed at the MTV VMAs 2014

Best Dressed 

Kim Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner
I beg you, adopt me! I love how co-ordinated these three ladies have been on the red carpet recently and the VMAs were no exception. Youngest sibling Kylie Jenner wore a draped silk dress with Jolie split as sister Kendall opted for an uber tight jumpsuit with sultry sheer top section. Queen Kim might be the smallest of the trio, but her outfit was the mightiest in a red monochrome geometric print dress with super-sexy plunging neckline. Wowzers. 

Nicki Minaj
I think it's fair to say this lady is pretty much ruling the charts at the moment, so why not rule the red carpet too? True to animal-themed single Anaconda, Minaj donned a shimmering leopard print mini, keeping it understated with large curls and brilliant white heels.


I'm always a fan of the brave and the bold, and budding superstar CharliXCX showed us what she was made of in this zesty zebra jumpsuit that clashed perfectly with her stilettos and jet black hair. Perfection.

Jessie J
I've always disliked Jessie J's harsh fringe so seeing her looking this ethereal got me extremely excited for a JJ fashion revival. Her passive mint green grecian gown looked A-MAZING.

Taylor Swift 
So despite the presence of an *ahem* obvious camel toe, T-Swift went risqué and totally succeeded. The sexy brocade playsuit showed off her skinny pins perfectly.

Miley Cyrus
Sobering from her hammer-licking ways, Miley Cyrus was bang on-trend for sunday's awards with a skinny leather crop and matching trousers. 

Joan Smalls
What is this sorcery? Joan Smalls' Aztec-influenced print dress is a unique beauty- I love the cape-esque feature to it. 

Solange Knowles
Channelling chic androgyny, Solange threw no punches at this years VMAs in her sparkly lady tux and voluptuous  'do.

Rita Ora
Is that Jessica Rabbit?! Showing Calvin Harris what he's missing, Rita Ora stunned in her red silk gown with eye-watering thigh split, accompanying it with sleeked back hair and killer rouge. A true high fashion spectacle. 

Worst Dressed

Katy Perry and RiffRaff
There was a reason why Britney and Justin only wore matching denim once-it looked dreadful. Perry who usually opts for ravashing pieces donned Versace with a jet black wig. Eurgh. 

Amber Rose
Despite the beauty of Amber Rose's figure, I really did think there wasn't much left to the imagination. Chain mail chic it may be, but I was thinking more along the lines of a gown as oppose to the remnants of a beaded curtain...

*yawn* Where was the originality in Beyonce's meek rouge piece? It may have sheer elements to it, but I couldn't help but be bored as Beyonce adopted her signature style. 

Jennifer Lopez
More for a cheesy ballroom than a red carpet event, I almost vommed at J Lo's crystal contraption. They say all that glitters is not gold- I say all that glitters is a piece of crap. 

Ariana Grande
In an attempt to shed the innocent image, it seems Miss Grande opted for snazzy stripper chic, but oh lordy did it backfire. Just like Demi Levato's too-tight Moschino disaster at the Kids Choice Awards, Ariana looked cheap. 

Chloe Moretz 
Prissy in pastel, actress Chloe Moretz looked way too sweet in her cotton candy-strawberry combo. The outfit was overall a little too grown up for the teenager who shoulf have opted for a more relaxed look.

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are DATING?!

Hold the phone. 

Why, When and HOW are these two dating?

When our fave film gal Jennifer Lawrence broke up with long-term beau Nicholas Hoult, we were all a bit sad (for a millisecond), but what's worse than a celeb break-up? a plain weird pairing.

Give me a minute to drag my jaw from the floor as I write that APPARENTLY the Hunger Games beauty spent a romantic afternoon with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin at the Wolffer Estate Vinyard in New York shortly before her 24th birthday.

A supposed insider blabbed:

"The setting was super romantic. They watched the sun go down together, then quietly left."

*rolls eyes*

The press have deemed J Law to be the exact opposite of Martin's estranged wife and health freak, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, enjoying cigarettes and pizza- qualities that reportedly attracted him to her. Interestingly though, Paltrow nominated the singer in her ice bucket challenge. We shall see if he accepts...

Until I see hard picture evidence, I'm pretty sceptical about this pair.

10 Smart Statements Made by the Kardashians

For a family that is famous for being famous, the Kardashians have a poor reputation for saying anything remotely intelligent. So how does their education really measure up?
As the rulers of reality, their rocky relationships and constant stream of endorsements have been a source of entertainment for millions, but with a notoriety for silly statements, it may come as a surprise to you that some members of the family do in fact have some pearls of wisdom to share...
10. Kendall Jenner's Knowledge of Money
The young, but often precocious Kendall Jenner showed us her sassy attitude during season two when she proclaimed to her mother that money does grow on trees, it's made of paper. She is indeed very correct, as dollar bills are manufactured by the Crane Paper Company. The paper used for currency is unlike normal wood pulp paper however, consisting of 75% cotton and 25% linen. I'm sure Kendall knew that too...

9. Kim Kardashian's Wise Words on Inner Beauty
33 year-old Kim Kardashian has had a fair bit of bad press about her abnormally large gluteus maximus amongst other parts of her body, so it's refreshing to hear that she has some words of encouragement for anyone feeling ever so slightly down about their appearance:
"Beauty is the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out."
True beauty is Kim's ridiculous cry face.

8. Khloé Kardashian's Hatred of Pretenders
Having slightly mellowed after her marriage to Lamar Odom back in 2009, any fan of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will have missed her attitude-filled days. She had some star advice for anyone who thinks they are intelligent:
"It's okay to be smart but please don't pretend to be smart, it's f*cking annoying."
I feel you girl. Kind of like how Kanye West thinks he's God?

7. Kim Kardashian On Having No Regrets
With a sex tape, multiple risqué photo shoots, marriages that went wrong and wardrobe malfunctions, Kim Kardashian is definitely a woman whose made a few blunders in life. Her bad press didn't get her down however as she said:
"I've made mistakes, but I don't have any regrets. I'm the kind of person who takes responsibility for it and deals with it. I learn from everything I do... get to know me and see who I am."
Impressive words Kim, but I'm not sure we will ever get over that sofa dress...

6. Khloé Kardashian on Kim's Vanity
Everyone knows Kim Kardashian is Queen of selfies and her own biggest fan, so what is funnier than us ripping her apart? Her own sister doing the same!
Khloé said:
"You know why she's the most googled person? Because she was googling herself."
I wonder if I will become famous by doing just that? *runs to Google*

5. Kim Kardashian on Weight Loss
After having a baby last year and being bombarded with particularly vicious comments about her weight gain, the newly wed hit back at haters by losing weight, yet retaining her infamous curves. Being careful not to appear too unhealthy, the star claimed.
"For me, skinny is just a style of jeans - not a goal."
Smart girl, who clearly knows her jean-type.

4. Kris Jenner On People Who Disagree With Her
Momager Kris Jenner, for all her plastic surgery and whimpering moments, is a pretty strong and smart woman. When talking about not getting her own way, she exclaimed:
"If somebody says no, you're asking the wrong person."
It's true to say that if it weren't for Jenner, a constant promoter of her children, the Kardashians as a brand would be non-existent, save for their father being embroiled in the controversial OJ Simpson trial, of course. The admirable quote could be seen as a modern day version of William Edward Hickson's "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."

3. Bruce Jenner on Parenting
The meek and ever-empathetic Bruce Jenner is seen as an innocent in the Keeping Up with the Kardashians series, often dominated by his strong and fierce female family members. As a father of six and step-father to three, he said:
"If you're asking your kids to exercise, then you better do it too. Practice what you preach."
Now a motivational speaker, the 64-year-old is an inspiration to many as he tours the country giving talks to stimulate thousands of people into living their dream - admirable.

2. Kim Kardashian's Teetotal Life
For all the claims that Kim Kardashian is a bad influence, at least she isn't falling around drunk, right? She credited her large family as the reason for her sobriety, saying:
"I've never been a drinker, I've never gotten into drugs... You know, I think I have such a close family... I think you know my sisters do enough drinking to kind of fill up the whole family."
With strong support from a family unit, it seems the Kardashian has led a pretty substance-free life. I'm sure she endorsed watermelon-flavoured alcoholic drink Midori though?

1. Khloé Kardashian On Shark Attacks
Ladies, Khloé Kardashian has some wise words when it comes to taking a dip in the sea..
"Don't go into the ocean while on your period because a shark is going to attack you."
Okay... so this statement has never been proven, but it's definitely funny. Thanks for the heads up Khloé!

Jennifer Lawrence Dumped By Nicholas Hoult Over Her Enormous Ego

Say it's not so?! 

J Law and bigheaded really don't sound right when placed in the same sentence, so what is with the reports of long-term boyfriend Nicholas Hoult getting rid of the star due to her "exploded ego. We've already had to deal with this cute couple breaking up, so why did they really call it quits?

The rumours are ridiculous, but The Fix reported that Hoult believed Lawrence had developed a "love of fame"and a source claimed she is desperate to win him back. 

"They're still talking but Nicholas is moving on. He hates how in love with fame Jen is, and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress."

To make make matters worse, it has also been claimed that Hoult is dating actress Riley Keough, being spotted with her earlier this week. Today he was seen in Tokyo with co-star Kristen Stewart eating sushi following the commencement of filming for upcoming movie Equals- that must mean they are dating too, right?!

Speaking to V Magazine he said of his relationship 

"I am just kind of her bystander in many ways.Enjoy the good times but don’t get swept away with it. … I think that’s something she’s capable of doing and what’s makes her special."

What does this all mean? either way I totally think J Law should be given another chance. I LOVE HER.
