Once upon a time, long before the odds were forever in her favor as Katniss Everdeen, Jennifer Lawrence was cast as “Lisa” in two promos for one of our favorite reality shows back in 2005: MTV‘s “My Super Sweet 16″. This tidbit came to light last night at the SAG Awards during the 22-year-old’s “Best Actress” acceptance speech for Silver Linings Playbook, which she kicked off with a seemingly incongruous thank you to MTV. As it turns out, the role was for what earned her a SAG card at age 14, kicking off what’s turned out to be a very successful career.
Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Carly Rae Jepsen, Psy, and more attended MTV‘s European Music Awards in Frankfurt, Germany last night. The red carpet looks ran from runway glam to over-the-top excess to some seriously yawn-worthy frocks. Who was best dressed, and who could have dressed better?
Even as certain things seem to be falling to pieces elsewhere in the world, order, you’ll be relieved to hear, is gradually being restored to Twilight land. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were seen holding hands on Halloween in Los Angeles, and yesterday they conducted their first interview together since this summer’s much-publicized cheating scandal and subsequent breakup.
As much as we loved Cindy Crawford as the original host of MTV’s House of Style, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls are doing a mighty fine job themselves. Their first episode is out, and it follows the two during Paris Fashion Week from the hustle and bustle of backstage to the glamorous parties.
We had no idea what to expect when we walked into the Metropolitan Pavilion South this afternoon for the debut of Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola‘s activewear collection for SXE Fitness. Would the rest of the Jersey Shore cast be in attendance? Would MTV film the show for an episode? Was there going to be a fight? So many questions!
Tonight, while fashion obsessives everywhere stormed the streets in search of deals, steals, and free booze, MTV doled out its annual Video Music Award honors. The usual suspects were there (Katy, Ke$ha, Nicki) in the usual garb (short, tight, bright). But there were also a few surprises.
Supermodels! Spice Girls! Fat Karl! MTV‘s legendary fashion show House Of Style is new, improved, and coming soon to a screen near you.
Last night the stars came out for the MTV European Music Awards, which is basically the across-the-pond version of the VMAs. The show was held in Ireland, hosted by Selena Gomez, and attended by supermodels and Snooki alike.
Say what you will about the current oversaturation of Lady Gaga — the pop superstar still remains compelling in the face of what has been an unprecedented media campaign for her new album. Last night MTV aired a fascinating special about Gags, and it’s her most personal interview yet.
As powerful as she is now, Lady Gaga wasn’t always the record and sense-defying phenom she she is today. Like a lot of us, when she was in high school, she was the target of bullying. Except, in her case, bullying didn’t take the form of intimidation or even being called names. Gaga literally got treated like trash.
Back in September, Lauren Conrad announced she would be doing yet another reality show for MTV. The Laguna Beach/Hills alum explained the new series would focus on her professional life (fashion!), without any of the messy personal stuff. Alas, the network decided to pass on the documentary-style show after Conrad filmed a pilot. Why? Let’s play a round of he said/she said!
Fact: We are currently obsessed with anything and everything Emma Watson. Another fact: there is absolutely nothing funnier than watching famous British people try to say, “Hey buddy, can I get an order of mozzarella sticks please?” Both of these facts combined are why MTV’s “American Talk With Josh Horowitz” is absolutely hilarious.
Today’s MTV Europe Music Awards in Madrid drew stars from across the globe, and in typical MTV fashion, the red carpet was a doozy. Eva Longoria Parker hosted the show, whose attendees included newlyweds Katy Perry and Russell Brand (in their first public appearance since their Indian nuptials) and a dour-looking Taylor Momsen (when’s the last time that girl smiled?).
That’s right, folks. MTV‘s The City has been canceled, or so Whitney Port told Ryan Seacrest today.
Rag on her shoes though we might, we’ve always thought Alexa Chung was a lovely and talented young woman. But more than a few people have accused her of having an eating disorder, and the model, designer and TV personality is sick and tired of hearing it.
Half of Lauren Conrad‘s life has been chronicled on TV, but she didn’t really have much input in Laguna Beach or The Hills. So when it came time to make arrangements for her new show on MTV, Conrad made sure she’d be in control.
Style.com is indeed getting its own reality show. It’s already filming in the office of Dirk Standen (left). But they still have to cast a female love interest for writer Darrell Hartman, and they’re not sure which network is going to air the show. Still, it should be tons of fun to watch.
Just a couple days ago we mused about Lauren Conrad‘s latest foray into reality TV. The Laguna Beach and Hills alum played coy, but we had a few ideas about what this show could possibly be about. Looks like we were right (see item #4, thankyouverymuch)! Conrad’s new show will be about fashion, people!
Lauren Conrad, that not-forgotten former reality TV star, used to pine about how much she wanted to have a normal life. Of course, that could have been part of her scripted reality. Nevertheless, when she told Ryan Seacrest that plans were in the works to bring her back to MTV‘s reality TV lineup, our hearts skipped a beat. For fear of violating some contract or other, Conrad wouldn’t tell Seacrest what the show is about, but we have a few ideas.
There’s been a debate — both here in the Styleite offices and in other stylish corners of the Internet — as to whether the dress Lady Gaga wore to accept her Video of the Year award at last night’s VMAs was actually made out of meat. We hemmed and hawed all day long, saying, “No — she wouldn’t actually sit in an auditorium full of people clothed entirely in rotting meat. It would stink!” or “Look at the pictures, and zoom in. There’s no way that’s actual fabric.” It turns out, the yes-it-is-meat-too camp was right.
