Taylor Swift And Dita Von Teese Rock The Red Carpet At The 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Two Equally Fly Looks

Both known for rocking a red carpet in their own unique way, Taylor Swift and Dita Von Teese turned heads at the 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards. Taylor wore this stunning, white silk Emilio Pucci gown (which I prefer to her last red carpet look, though I loved seeing her back in Elie Saab), and Dita also wore silk, keeping things sexy in a a champagne-coloured Maria Lucia Hohan. I think that both ladies look amazing, but if I had to pick one dress it’d be Taylor‘s. Sadly, I simply do not have the rack to rock Dita‘s look. But gawd, she is doin’ the damn thang… LOL! Peep the gallery for more!

Dan Savage Named The 2013 ‘Humanist Of The Year’ By The American Humanist Association

Congrats!

Author/speaker/all around cool guy Dan Savage was on hand at an award ceremony in San Diego, CA last night to receive the 2013 Humanist of the Year award presented to him by the American Humanist Association. The AHA is a nontheistic organization that seeks to bring about a progressive society where being good without belief in any god-system is an accepted way of life. Among the tenets of the AHA is a drive for the defense of civil liberties and secular government as well as the advancement of the humanist viewpoint. Savage has long been a champion of nontheistic thought and through his work for GLBT youth, sex-positive writing and the advocacy of the separation of church and state he was deemed the most deserving person to be named Humanist of the Year for 2013. My good friends Emma and Josh were in attendance at the 72nd annual conference of the American Humanist Association last night for this award ceremony and share the photo of Dan and his award below.

Seth MacFarlane Has Reportedly Been Asked To Host The Oscars Again

I, For One, Am Hoping For A 'We Saw Your Boobs' Sequel
HBO's 70th Annual Golden Globes After Party

This year the Academy Awards show was hosted by Seth MacFarlane, and it ended being kind of a big deal. I was one of a few feminists (it seemed) who was totally fine with the work he did, and totally entertained by much of his schtick, including– but not limited to– the now infamous We Saw Your Boobs song. Of all the acts of misogyny in the world and in the media, I thought Seth‘s hosting gig would have been the least of our concerns (and again, I didn’t find it misogynistic at all, though many people did). And bottom line for me, he was funny. He was entertaining! And lots of people got through the long-ass ceremony that is the Oscars because of him. Thus, I happily rejoice over the news that he’s being asked to come back and host again next year. Click inside for more!

Celebrities Arrive At The 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Will Ferrell Wins Best Dressed.

Earlier today we checked out the winners and nominees from last night’s MTV Movie Awards. As I said, I wasn’t that impressed with the actual show, but the fashion is always fun so I was psyched to see what everyone rocked on the red carpet. Kerry Washington had one of my favorite looks of the night (I know– surprise, surprise), and Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss and Emma Watson also looked pretty fab. Peep the gallery for more! Oh, Will Ferrell also looked awesome… lol.

Here Are All The Winners From The 2013 MTV Movie Awards

'The Avengers' And 'Silver Linings Playbook' Win Big
2013 MTV Movie Awards Press Room

Last night the 2013 MTV Movie Awards aired and the show was… fun. Not crazy-fun, not mind-blowingly fun, just fun. Rebel Wilson hosted and she was… fun… but got a little predictable at a certain point (PITNBr Sam, you called it). And while I did enjoy the show, I wasn’t especially excited to be there… watching from my couch, lol. Still, I’m glad I tuned in. Emma Watson, Will Ferrell, and Jamie Foxx were all honored with special awards for their contribution to the world of cinema, and it was really cool to see their bodies of work receive some recognition. As far as winners were concerned, it was all about The Avengers and Silver Linings Playbook. Click inside to see the full list of winners and nominees!

Watch: Jennifer Lawrence Hilariously Explains Her Big Fall At The Oscars

'What Happened?! I Tried To Walk Upstairs In THIS Dress!'
At Least She Fell In Dior Haute Couture

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Jennifer Lawrence saves all. I nearly died for and with her last night when she fell on the steps on her way to accepting the Academy Award for Best Actress. I’m sorry, but the whole thing was kind of awesome, lol. And in typical J-Law fashion, she made it even awesomer. “You guys are just standing up ’cause you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing but thank you,” she said when she finally got to the podium, Oscar in hand. But Miss Dior also addressed the issue in the press room after she won. You can tell the reporters were sooo trying to make this a bigger issue than it really was, and I loved hearing Jennifer‘s response. Peep the video for more!
