GQ just debuted its list of “The 100 Sexiest Women of the Millennium”, which is topped, of course, by February cover star Beyoncé and features the usual suspects like Megan Fox, Kate Upton, and Christina Hendricks. Also included is the category, “This Year’s Hot Chinese Chick” (the honor of which went to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’s Zhang Ziyi). And there is more where that came from.
The stars turned out for Spike TV‘s Scream 2010 Awards (an event “honoring the best in sci-fi, fantasy, comics and horror”), and we rounded up some red carpet looks for you. Check out our slideshow, and tell us who looked fab and who looked drab!
M.I.A. has a bone to pick with Lady Gaga — well, actually a few bones. She first called Gaga “a good mimic,” who is talented only at copying the likes of Madonna and Grace Jones, and now M.I.A. has taking to criticizing Gaga’s entire career path.So what is to be done to settle the feud that M.I.A. has fueled? Simple: a good, hearty edition of Fashion Wars.
M.I.A.’s heavily anticipated third full-length album “/\/\/\V/\” drops today. (The album is pronounced “Maya.”) And while she’s certainly known for her melting pot of sounds and vocal techniques, her fashion presence is difficult to ignore. Sometimes it’s fun and playful like her Jean-Charles De Castelbajac shark dress — and sometimes seizure-inducing, like the neon tribal, flashing print madness in her “Boyz” music video. But when your music sounds like a bonfire blast of dubstep, bhangra, hip-hop, house, and punk, you can get away with outfits that are equally as eclectic.
As promised via Twitter last week, M.I.A. has posted clips of her interview with The New York Times Magazine‘s Lynn Hirschberg. If you’ll remember, the artist didn’t take too kindly to Hirschberg’s depiction of her in a profile published last week. But instead of the long transcripts vindicating the artist we expected to see, we got two short audio clips, the first of which only proves that Hirschberg really wanted some truffle-flavored french fries.
Lynn Hirschberg is leaving The New York Times Magazine (for W!) with a bang. Her last contracted piece for the magazine is a profile of Grammy-nominated rapper M.I.A. that went online this week. And if M.I.A.’s tweet on the matter is any indication, she didn’t like the piece very much at all — and the ensuing controversy could prove very valuable for W.
Itching to get your paws on that dowdy lavender ode to the Wild West that actress Vera Farmiga donned for last night’s Met Gala? Or perhaps you’ve just been dying to get stood up at the altar and think Kirsten Dunst’s matronly white frock and matching lace-up boots would be perfect to add sartorial shame to public scorn. Well, ladies, fret not. In fact thanks to the big event’s retail-minded co-host, last night’s trash (for a sincere lack of a better word) can be your designer treasure because starting today all the Gala-approved “x Gap” garbs go up on the auction blocks.
