US Weekly magazine hosted its annual Hot in Hollywood event at Drai’s Hollywood in Hollywood, CA on top of the W Hotel on Hollywood Blvd. last night and managed to bring out a who’s who of elite celebs. The Buffyverse was represented quite significantly (by Alyson Hannigan, David Boreanaz and Julie Benz) but the biggest celeb to attend last night’s fête was Jennifer Lopez, who’s new film The Back-Up Plan opens in theaters today. Here are a few photos from the red carpet arrivals last nights and some quotes from a few of the attendees talking about past fashion faux pas:
Tinseltown’s fashion elite stepped into the spotlight Thursday night at Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood party to celebrate the style issue’s release. The red carpet was brimming with stars and sass, but even the most fashionable celebs admitted to making regrettable choices that magazines like Us have captured. “I’ve definitely had some outfits like, ‘What was I thinking?’” Nicole Scherzinger cringed while sharing the carpet with “Dancing With the Stars” dancers Mark Ballas and Damian Whitewood. “It sucks when they compare you [with someone in the same outfit] and you wore it not as well. That’s kind of sad times for me.” “Oh my god, I’ve had some pretty embarrassing moments,” said “Twilight” star Nikki Reed, who was named a “Colorful Coquette” by the magazine. “There was a time I wore a dress, and I didn’t realize it was see-through until it was nighttime and there were big camera flashes. That was pretty brutal.” Some stars blamed circumstances beyond their control for the times they’ve been caught by the fashion police and crowned with a “worst dressed” title. “I don’t live in Hollywood, so I do a lot of changing in my car,” explained new PETA campaigner Stephanie Pratt, whose beachside residence has forced her to convert her car to a mobile closet. “I find myself in a lot of inside-out clothes. That’s probably the worst it gets. When I’m wearing something, like, from Zara, with long tags hanging down, that’s bad.” Ciara recalled one disaster that had nothing to do with her clothing. “I left the house one time and my outfit was really, really cute,” she said. “I didn’t do my own makeup. I was trying a new makeup artist that night, and my face looked like a pumpkin. I was really red. Some photos look better than others because the light kind of saved my life.”
Fascinating, no? Yeah … not really, I was really merely drawn by the fun red carpet photos. I am totally blown away by how hot Kelly Osbourne looked last night. Altho she and boyfriend Luke Worrall decided to wear matching bangs, I think they looked fantastic! Paris Hilton, the poor dear, was rockin’ her trademark wonky eye like nobody’s business … bless her heart. All in all, I suspect this year’s Hot in Hollywood party was marginally fun for the attendees but this year’s event didn’t seem to have the same heat that events in previous years had.
