Kerry Washington, Zendaya, And Way Too Much White
Okay, disclaimer: I didn’t see the 2014 BET Awards red carpet live. Maybe some of these looks were better IRL, but ummm. What’s going on here? Okay, good news first: Kerry Washington looked like Kerry Washington, and that made me feel good. But, literally everyone else was wearing white! No, seriously. Everyone. Okay, there were, like, 5 other people not wearing white but it was everywhere. And you know I love me a white dress, but this felt like overkill.
Also, I want to hear what everyone thinks about Adrienne Bailon‘s look because she was totally trending last night. She, too, wore white. It’s fine.

Chick stole her look!
Anna Kendrick is gearing up for a pretty huge year, and I’m psyched for the young star. I just spent 5 whole seconds on her IMDB page and it was dizzying—she has so many new projects in the works (including that new zombie movie I can’t wait to see) and she’s also become a fashion favorite. As a fashionista, it’s important to own your look and your brand, and Anna is trying to do just that. For this reason, she had to call out Charlize Theron earlier this week and things got a little diva. Click inside for more!
Her Best Looks Of 2014
This woman!!! Friggen Diane Kruger showed up at The Paley Center for Media for the premiere screening of the FX series The Bridge and she looked fantastic. I couldn’t get access to those photos, so I decided to look back at some recent looks from her that I really loved. I think my favorite is that black lace dress she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Peep the gallery for more!

Anyone wanna dress like Olivia Pope?
The Limited has announced that they have partnered with the costume designers on ABC‘s Scandal to come with a line of clothing inspired by the TV show. That’s right, folks. Some of those amazing designs that actress Kerry Washington wears as Olivia Pope will be recreated and sold at The Limited later this year. I can think of a few folks out there who would probably like to get their hands on a few Olivia Pope-inspired outfits. I’m thinking that our very own Shannon needs to get herself a version of Liv‘s white coat, don’t you think? Click thru the gallery here to see a couple of sketches from The Limited Scandal Collection and then click below to learn more about the line. More »
That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
It’s like, you don’t really want to believe that celebrities get special treatment from the courts, but… celebrities clearly get special treatment from the courts. As most of you probably remember, Kanye West went HAM on a paparazzi photographer a little while back and is now “paying for it”… if by “paying for it” I mean doing something he’d probably pay to do anyway… LMAO. This is such a hilarious story, I can’t even believe it’s real. Click inside for more!

All Smiles And Flawless Make-Up
I was debating about this look for a minute, but I’m officially on board with America Ferrera‘s outfit. She’s rocking this polka-dot top with flared sleeves and a black skirt and I feel like she is werkin’ it… and I maybe need me a polka-dot top with flared sleeves. Peep the gallery for more and tell me if you likey!

What. Just. Happened.
Listen everyone. I don’t want you to start treating me differently because of the pictures in this gallery. I’m serious. Yes, I’m a TV Editor at Paste now. And yes, this means I get invited to fancy hotels to interview fancy, award-winning actors who you love like cray… like the cast of Orange Is The New Black. And yes, I look kind of amazing in those bathroom selfies (#ASOS dress). But I’m still the same ol’ Shannon. I just hang out with Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Uzo Aduba, Taryn Manning and many other fancy people sometimes. It’s NO. BIG. DEAL. And I’m not gonna change on you! So just peep the gallery for more, and click inside so I can tell you about how
I’m better than everyone right now much fun I had yesterday!
10s Across the Board
Remember back in February when we learned that Rodarte created a fashion line that was inspired by characters from Star Wars? Well, today we learn that fashion designer Bobby Abley has just unveiled a new menswear line for Spring/Summer 2015 that is inspired by Disney‘s The Little Mermaid. As you can see in the gallery presented here, most of the pieces take inspiration directly from the Little Mermaid characters … like Ariel, Ursula and Sebastian. I mean, is it wrong that I totally want to rock the Flotsam & Jetsam sweatshirt (and SKATEBOARD!)? Yeah, probably, but who cares? I may not know fashion but I do know Disney and these looks are fun. With Sofia Coppola‘s version of Mermaid coming out and now this line of menswear by Bobby Abley, The Little Mermaid is so hot right now.
Why This Casting And Terminology Is Important
Let’s talk about terminology for a second here. Today I read the term “gender-fluid” for the first time and I thought, “Yes, perfect.” So much depends on language and the labels that we use (as I’ve said before), and in the conversation about identity, queerness, and the trans experience there’s a lot that many of us have to learn. Some people (many people) still have difficulty accepting that a person can be born one sex, and later identify as another. In a report about Sofia Coppola‘s new movie, I really appreciated the way Indiewire’s /bent shared news about Andrej Pejic. So. excuse me while I add the term “gender-fluid” to my vocabulary, and share this new understanding with all of you. Click inside for more!
