"I don't mind an exhibitionist but ..."
Last week we learned that Brad Pitt was physically assaulted by an unruly prankster named Vitalii Sediuk (the same man who crawled under America Ferrera‘s dress on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival a few weeks ago) on the red carpet of the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent and today we are hearing from Brad himself about the incident. Brad issued an official statement to People magazine about the incident to clarify exactly what happened to him and to make plain his feelings on the assault. Read the full text of Brad‘s statement below. More »
Pop star Rihanna caused a bit of a sensation on the red carpet of the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC, NY last night when she showed up to collect this year’s Fashion Icon Award wearing a dress that was so completely see-thru that it left nothing to the imagination. #FreeTheNipple made its way to the red carpet last night, y’all. To her credit, Ri Ri brilliantly paid homage to the CFDA Fashion Awards sponsor Swarovski Crystals by wearing a dress that was covered in Swarovski Crystals — on completely sheer fabric. To be honest, I am neither surprised nor wowed by Rihanna‘s outfit because, really, when doesn’t she go nekkid for the cameras. But, since toplessness and the #FreeTheNipple campaign is in the public consciousness these days, it’s easy to see that Rihanna is the reigning champion of celebrity nekkidness. Click thru the gallery to see Rihanna‘s NSFW outfit and see what you think? Are you impressed by Rihanna‘s fearlessness or do you find her outfit much ado about wearing nothing?
It felt insanely good to put this gallery together. Y’all. Our weekly fashion round-up is back in full effect! Please check out the gallery for some of my absolute favorite looks of the week. Angeline Jolie, Emily Blunt, and Lupta Nyong’o (who I was obsessing over earlier today) are just a few of the celebs who rocked some fabulous threads this week. I think my personal favorites are Angie Atelier Versace, Miley Cyrus in that sparkling silver Kaufmanfranco, and Emily Blunt in that red Prada. Oh, and Heidi looked bomb too! I also cheated and included Chloe Grace Moretz. She wore that look more than a week ago, but damn she’s just so cute in it! Peep the gallery for more and tell me which ones are your faves!
I would also like to add that Emily Blunt had a baby 15 minutes ago. Whatever.

Earlier today we heard about how Brad Pitt got physically assaulted on the red carpet of the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent at the El Capitan Theater last night but right now we get to see other, non assault-related photos from the premiere fete. Angelina Jolie reigned supreme as the Queen of the night at the Maleficent premiere with her co-stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley and others just basking in her magnificent glow. Angelina spent some time hob-nobbing with fans at the event last night, which made the whole thing look like a lot of fun. Click thru the gallery to see who wore what and get excited, y’all. Maleficent opens in theaters officially at midnight tonight! I loved it! I think you will, too.
How does this keep happening?
Two weeks ago a man named Vitalii Sediuk breached the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival so that he could crawl underneath America Ferrera‘s dress in a “prank” attempt. Last night, Sediuk managed to breach the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Blvd. so that he could hit Brad Pitt in the face. The so-called “serial troublemaker” was apprehended by security and then taken into custody by police and, as I understand it, was only punished with one night in jail in lieu of paying a $20,000 fine for misdemeanor assault. This is the same man that in recent years has managed to breach security at award shows and at red carpet events all over the world. In 2012, he famously kissed Will Smith on the face, for which he was slapped, and in 2013, he successfully managed to get on stage during the Grammy Awards to interrupt Adele‘s trophy presentation by snatching the microphone from Jennifer Lopez‘s hands — on live TV. I guess I don’t understand how this man continues to be able to get so dangerously close to celebrities. His actions have been described as “pranks” but they seem like assaults to me, especially last night’s attack on Brad Pitt. I wonder how long this man will be allowed to “prank” people before he is able to seriously injure someone?
Focus on the Positive
Earlier this week we saw a batch of BEAUTIFUL photos of Ryan Gosling at a promo event in Cannes, France where Ryan premiered his directorial debut film Lost River at the Cannes International Film Festival. I’m sorry to relay that critics of Gosling‘s film haven’t been too kind toward the first-time director’s feature film. One critic called Lost River “mouth-dryingly lousy“, another called it “colossally indulgent, shapeless, often fantastically and unthinkingly offensive and at all times insufferably conceited.” Oh and the film garnered old fashioned Boos from some people in the audience as well. NONETHELESS, Ryan got all gussied up in a hot tux to walk the red carpet at the official premiere of Lost River (along with his actors Christina Hendricks [Mad Men] and Iain De Castecker [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.]) and he looked damn good doing so. Click thru the gallery to see Ryan Gosling wearing a tuxedo and forget all about those nasty film reviews. He’s so purdy, isn’t that really all that matters?
Red Carpet is the new 'Orange'
Earlier this week we got to see a batch of promo posters HERE and HERE for the forthcoming second season of Orange is the new Black on Netflix and today we get to see a collection of hawt red carpet photos from the OITNB season 2 premiere that took place in NYC last night. The ladies (and gentleman) of Orange is the new Black made their way to the The Ziegfeld Theater in Manhattan for last night’s premiere event and as you can see in this gallery, they all brought the fashion realness. Click thru the gallery to see if your fave castmember from OITNB strutted their stuff down the red carpet … and get excited! OITNB season 2 premieres on Netflix in just 3 weeks!!

Angelina Jolie and co-star Elle Fanning were among the attendees at a premiere event in London, England last night called The World of Maleficent at Kensington Palace. This event was a way to showcase some of the costumes and props that were used in Maleficent ahead of the film’s theatrical debut later this month. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Ange and Elle looked utterly fabulous on the blue carpet … as did actor Sam Riley and Angelina‘s main man Brad Pitt. There was a whole lotta hawt glam at The World of Maleficent last night. Behold.
We are a week away from the theatrical release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 here in the US but last night the cast of the film convened in NYC for the US premiere of the film. As you can see in the gallery presented here, stars like Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx (with his cute daughter), Dane DeHaan and more got all dolled up in their finest for the big event. I am SO dying to see this movie already, I can’t even tell you. With the big movie premiere out the way, the only thing left is for the movie to come out so … COME OUT ALREADY :D

Rave Reviews, NPH in tiny Hot Pants
Late last month, Hedwig and the Angry Inch opened in previews at the Belasco Theater in NYC, NY but last night the show opened officially on the Great White Way. Star Neil Patrick Harris was photographed on the red carpet alongside his partner David Burtka (as well as co-star Lena Hall and Hedwig originator John Cameron Mitchell) on the big night last night but it was his curtain call photos where he wore only teeny, tiny hot pants that are getting all the attention today. Have a look thru the gallery presented here to see NPH in his skivvies and get a taste of Hedwig on Broadway. The New York Times and The Hollywood Reporter are big fans of this new production of Hedwig, so if you’re able to check out this show … I highly urge you to do so. I’m hoping to get out to NYC this Summer to see the show so … yeah, fingers crossed. Enjoy the photos. I have a feeling that you will ;)
