Unfortunately these stars missed the mark on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards! See the frightful fashion right here & VOTE for which look you thought was the worst.
The 2013 Grammy Awards in LA on Feb. 10 brought out some interesting looks on the red carpet. While so many stars stunned in gorgeous gowns, unfortunately some stars failed when it came to their fashion. For example, Adele was a big winner of the night on the stage — but I can’t say the same for her style! Her red gown looked like she had wrapped herself up in a curtain — I didn’t think it flattered the star at all!
While I liked Florence Welch‘s green Givenchy gown, it definitely got mixed reviews. The star often takes risks on the red carpet, but this time it didn’t look like the totally pulled it off.
See a slew of questionable looks & VOTE for which style you liked the least right here!
We saw two pretend weddings in this week’s Revenge. One was a touching beachside ceremony full of real emotion… and the other was between Jack and the woman he thinks is – but who is decidedly not – his one true love. (Pardon me if I’m feeling less than friendly toward Amanda, but she goes so rogue in this week’s episode that it makes me want to skip the middlewoman and Red Sharpie her myself. More on that later.) Victoria also goes off-book – but it’s in such spectacular fashion that I just have to sit back and take notes. Let’s review the major developments that took place in “Union.”
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE| The episode opens with a flashback – aw, hi puppy Sammy! — to little Amanda preparing for a beachside wedding to Jack. She’s making pipecleaner rings and rehearsing her vows, and when David Clarke finds out what she’s doing, he becomes part of the plan. It’s cute. Back in present day, Nolan’s complaining about how much he has to do for Amanda and Jack’s impending nuptials. “Who knew officiant was French for ‘wedding bitch’?” he says. They quickly establish that no one’s heard from Aiden since he blamed Emily for absolutely everything going wrong in his life, and then Nolan lets it slip that the Graysons now own half of The Stowaway. Emily quickly summons Amanda and hands her a check, making it possible for Jack to buy back Conrad’s share of the bar. “The Graysons were and always will be the enemy,” Emily reminds her, and didn’t that kinda feel like the writers reassuring the audience that things aren’t as far afield as we fear?
Nolan finds Aiden waiting for him at NolCorp; the Brit demands that he pull up the intercepted snuff video of his sister Colleen. Nolan’s able to point out that the footage was shot six years before; despite everything The Initiative told him, nothing he or Emily could have done – including kill Victoria – would’ve changed the outcome. (Side note: At this point, I grumble at the TV, “… Just like Emily told you last episode.”) Nolan uses a serial number on an electric meter in the background of the video to point Aiden toward Jersey City, NJ – information he later also shares with Emily. They review how The Initiative used Aiden’s dad years ago to put the bomb on the plane David Clarke allegedly brought down; he was never seen again. Nolan suddenly has a teeny moment of hope. He wonders whether Padma might be in a similar situation: Perhaps she’s only out to take him down because The Initiative has threatened someone in her family? Em’s all, “Dude, focus” and advises him to keep stringing Padma along, then she leaves to meet her sometime boyfriend in a scuzzy abandoned warehouse.
While they’re there, Nolan calls. He’s found Colleen’s coroner’s report from 2007 in the system, so Emily and Aiden go to the office and he IDs his sister from the pictures of her corpse. “I’ve failed her,” a despondent Aiden tells Em in the potters’ field where Colleen is buried. She does her best to boost him, telling him to honor his sister’s memory by continuing their work. “That’s why people like you and me fight,” she says, more beat-down than we’ve seen her in quite some time. “I thought we shared that.” But Aiden says he’s done, despite her pleas “don’t leave me alone in this.” He walks away and she cries in a way that makes me think she’s not only sad and lonely, she’s a little jealous of his ability to shuck off a years-long obsession (seemingly) just like that. Very nice work there from Ms. VanCamp.
PADMA SINGS LIKE A BIRD| In a rare turn, Nolan goes against Emily’s wishes and tells Padma that he’s onto her – “because my feelings for you defy logic.” Aw. Bottom line: The Initiative has her dad and has been using him as leverage to control her. They asked her to get close to Noles and then search for Carrion. For reasons I can’t quite understand at the moment, Nolan tells her that he gave her an incomplete code. And just like that, the big suspense the show set up at having Padma find the dummy program goes poof? I still don’t know if I trust this chick; let’s hope our favorite tech genius is playing it safe and has some other secret plan in the works.
TO HAVE AND TO HOLD | Jack reluctantly accepts Emily’s money and tries to buy back Conrad’s interest in The Stowaway, but ol’ Grayson won’t sell. He and Nate Ryan have plans to turn the dock area into the next Atlantic City, so he’s planning on having the bank reassess the bar’s mortgage. When Jack comes up financially lacking, some clause-a-majigger in the arrangement will allow Conrad to assume Porter’s debt and own it all. At this news, Amanda goes to Emily’s empty house and breaks into Emily’s password-protected laptop by guessing her pal’s secret word. (Side note: Infinity?! Infinity, Emily?! No numbers? Not even Yahoo would accept that as a stable password!) Amanda carts the computer to Conrad’s, where she shows him all of the Grayson Global security footage Emily’s amassed over the years. She tells him to accept Jack’s buyout or else… and he does. Nate Ryan isn’t happy to hear that his biggest funder/accomplice is backing out of their agreement, and he assumes the Porters are involved. Jack is oblivious to all of the subterfuge (shocker!), so he’s just happy to be sole proprietor once more.
A short while later, Jack and Amanda get married on the beach. Nolan presides over everything in a truly amazing jacket; everyone wears white and it’s rather pretty… if you don’t think about how awful it is that three people of the seven in attendance know that the bride isn’t who the groom thinks she is, yet they allow him to tie himself to her for eternity. (I have my suspicions that little Carl knows more than he’s saying, too.)
Look, I know Jack doesn’t have a ton of fans out there in Revenge fanland. I don’t care how you feel about the elder Porter brother and his facial hair (or lack thereof) and his inability to realize that the woman he thinks is his soulmate is actually a trashy imitation. Even if you’re the biggest Jack-hater on the planet, how can you feel anything but embarrassment on his behalf? And anger at Amanda? And irritation at… oh God, Emily’s crying again. I can’t. Em, you’re killing me. How can I be mad at you when you are so clearly having a really, really bad week? Our poker-faced heroine has to look away as Jack’s talking about how Amanda was always in his heart, because anyone who looks at her is going to know those aren’t happy wedding tears. Those are “Ben & Jerry’s, STAT” tears.
It only gets worse when she gets home and Daniel calls to break up with her. She doesn’t know it’s because Victoria and Conrad have told him everything about how The Initiative is playing him, and he’s trying to keep her safe. All she knows is when Aiden later finds her sitting by a fire on the beach – as you do – he’s a warm body who’s promising not to leave her alone. Can you blame her when she and her gorgeous cable-knit turtleneck slowly collapse into his arms?
QUEEN V TO THE RESCUE| Helen shows up at Grayson Manor and demands that Victoria turn over all of the evidence that The Initiative was involved in the downed flight. So Vicky gets her alone in the pool house and shoots her. Yup! After all of the “we can’t possibly breathe one peep about The Initiative or Daniel is dead” and “there’s no way to stop them” talk, in the space of one episode Victoria spills all and then guns down one of their key players. Okay…? The best part of all of this, by the way, is when Daniel comes home to find his mom having a casual drink in the same room where Helen lays dead in the corner. Victoria actually has to step around Helen as she strolls over to the bar for a refresh. It’s a little awesome.
BOAT GO BOOM SOON?| The show set up the Amanda’s explosion we saw at the beginning of the season by having Amanda and Jack set off on their honeymoon to Nantucket. When a babysitting Charlotte and Declan use the ship-to-shore radio to ask about Carl’s pacifiers, we see Nate Ryan on board – unbeknownst to the newlyweds – as he clips the radio’s wire. Uh-oh.
Now it’s your turn. What did you think of Padma’s confession? Were you surprised to see Amanda commandeer the computer like that? Who’s your pick for the 2013 Floating Dismembered Arm Award? Sound off in the comments!
Sadly, Thomas’ first encounter with Jimmy didn’t exactly go as planned. Could he be leaving the abbey?
Bates (Brendan Coyle) returned to Downton Abbeya free man on the Feb. 10 episode, but in true Downton fashion, his return was interrupted by scandal of a most scandalous nature.
Let’s start with the most scandalous of all: Thomas (Rob James-Collier) finally put the moves on Jimmy (Ed Speleers)! It wasn’t quite as romantic as I’d hoped it would be, though, considering it was basically rape. After O’Brien (Siobhan Finneran) filled him with false hope, Thomas crept into Jimmy’s room while he was sleeping and kissed him.
But their Sleeping Beauty moment was interrupted by Alfred, who had just returned from a super-awkward date with Ivy. Jimmy awoke with a fright, screaming at Thomas and insisting to Alfred that the encounter was not as it seemed. Jimmy ended up reporting Thomas to Carson, who reacted just as angrily and homophobic-ally as you’d expect.
Robert Vs. Matthew Vs. Fertility
Meanwhile, Robert (Hugh Bonneville) and Matthew (Dan Stevens) spent most of the hour squabbling about how to run the estate. It was mostly a lot of boring gobbledigook, but it did allow Mr. Jarvis to say this amazing line: “I am the old broom, you are the new. I wish you luck with your sweeping.”
Then Matthew asked Mary (Michelle Dockery) if she should see a doctor about his seemingly malfunctioning peen. She told him not to worry.
Oh Tom’s Brother, Where Art Thy Mustache?
Tom’s brother — who the Dowager Countess aptly described as a “drunken gorilla” — paid the abbey a visit this week. There’s really not much to say about him, other than he had a mustache and was very rude. He actually looked like a skinny Ron Swanson.
Edith Crawley, Journalist
After accepting the newspaper editor’s proposition, Edith formally announced at dinner that the Crawleys now had a journalist in the family, clearly forgetting they already have one — and he was sitting right across from her.
I leave you with this incredible exchange between Edith and Violet, re: Ethel being treated like Hester from The Scarlett Letter:
Violet: “What is The Scarlet Letter?” Edith: “A novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne.” Violet: “It sounds most unsuitable.”
What did you think of this week’s episode? Will you be disappointed if Thomas is fired from Downton? Do you think Matthew & Mary will be able to have kids? And when will this family stop dumping on poor Edith? Drop a comment with your personal review of the episode!
The songstress showed off three sexy dresses and $2 million worth of jewels at the award show — but which one did you like best? VOTE!
Rihanna looked red hot on the red carpet at the 2013 Grammy Awards in LA on Feb. 10, where the 24-year-old singer turned up in a red Alaia gown. While the sheer dress revealed the fact that she didn’t have anything on underneath, the star still looked absolutely stunning. She knows how to steal the show, and that’s exactly what she did!
A red lip and winged eyeliner completed her look, while waves cascaded around her shoulders — I loved everything about the look! In signature Rihanna fashion, she added an over-the-top factor to her ensemble, pairing the get-up with over $2 million worth of Neil Lane jewels. The star was wearing a 100 carat diamond and platinum serpentine bracelet, multiple diamond and ruby serpent rings, and 20 carat diamond and platinum drop earrings — talk about full on glamour! The star was seriously dripping in jewels.
For her first performance, the singer slipped into a form-fitting black frock, once again putting her svelte frame on full display — and she looked better than ever! The mermaid silhouette was so glam.
For her last look, the star flaunted her toned tummy in a maxi skirt and a crop top that had metallic, embellished stripes. Rihanna certainly isn’t shy, but given how great she looks we don’t blame her for rocking such sexy looks.
While all three looks were sexy and glam, what did you think? Which dress did you like best on the stat? VOTE!
Here’s what she told ex-boyfriend Harry Styles in a clear English accent: “We are never EVER getting back together.”
But here’s what she also told him AND told all women who are suffering from heartbreak after a painful breaking — “We are never ever getting back together because — SORRY, I’M BUSY OPENING UP THE GRAMMYS!”
That’s right, Harry! Taylor is far too busy doing something exciting, challenging, and worthwhile to be contemplating getting back into a self-esteem damaging relationship with you!
Taylor is telling romance-damaged women that the best antidote to the agony of being underappreciated in a romance is to get busy focusing on your own career and personal growth.
As Taylor sang and strutted around the stage with her gorgeous long legs, shaking her hips, she set a mood of confident defiance.
Taylor Swift: My Relationship Was A Circus
She purposely dressed like a ringmaster and set the stage for her song, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” as a circus, because she was telling the world that her relationship with Harry had felt like one — over the top; a performance lived out in public.
Even Taylor’s private post-breakup tears became public when a fan snapped a photo of her leaving the holiday vacation she had shared with Harry before their breakup fight.
You Can Learn From Taylor Swift
So ladies, she’s also telling you — learn from her and don’t turn your relationship or breakup into a circus, even if it’s unintentional.
But most of all remember — if you’re hurting after a hard split, don’t stay in bed moping — get busy!
Get busy like Taylor is doing and don’t stop! Yes, you do deserve to be loved and appreciated, but in the meantime — move forward living your life!
Thanks Taylor for that inspiring message to all women suffering the bad romance blues! Do you agree HollywoodLifers – did you love Taylor’s performance? Or not? Let me know!
Leading up to the Grammys, all anyone could seem to talk about was who'd win Album of the Year and/or defy CBS' modesty memo and flash us some side boob. (Our money was on Frank Ocean. For both.) But to focus on those topics would ignore a whole host of, shall we say, "alternative" categories ranging from Weirdest Acceptance Speech to Performance Most Likely to Induce a Seizure. TVLine.com couldn't allow that to happen. So, voila! Our slideshow of the night's best, worst and, for better or worse, most memorable moments:
The hottest men in the music industry arrived for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards looking dapper, and we loved all of their sharp ensembles on the red carpet! Check out some of the most fashionable men at the Grammys.
The music industry is filled with some of the sexiest and most stylish men in the world, and the talented hunks who showed up to 2013 Grammy Awards on Feb. 10 certainly did not disappoint when it came to their stylish suits and tuxes! Justin Timberlake arrived in his best “Suit & Tie,” and stunned in a black Tom Ford ensemble.
Tom Ford was a popular pick among the guys in attendance — Tim McGraw and Wiz Khalifa also revealed that they were wearing suits by the high-end designer.
Although many of the hunks went with the classic black tux, including Trey Songz and Drake, John Mayer‘s outfit was a little more unconventional. He wore a deep purple crushed velvet tux, complete with a matching bow tie!
Even though the guys looked handsome, they got off easy when it came to CBS’ wardrobe advisory — the memo was clearly directed towards women.
"Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack,” the warning email from CBS read.
“Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible "puffy’ bare skin exposure," it continued.
Even with no “buttcrack” or “genital region” exposed, we think the guys look fabulous! Tell us HollywoodLifers, who do YOU think was the best dressed man? Let us know in the comments below!
While Jack & Amanda looked forward to their new life together, someone else lost their life!
Victoria’s (Madeleine Stowe) got a gun! The Feb. 10 episode of Revenge began with a flashback to the past of what was meant to be: Jack (Nick Wechsler) and real Amanda (Emily VanCamp) as kids — planning a wedding! But we all know how that worked out. Thanks, Faux-manda. Thanks a lot.
Speaking of Faux-manda, she went to the Graysons’ for help with Stowaway problems and, of course, Emily had to bail her out again with a check containing way too many zeroes.
Despite all the problems in the Hamptons surrounding the Porter family, there was a wedding to be had — and Jack finally shaved! My heart shattered as tears fell down Emily’s face at Jamanda’s wedding, and I almost cried when Emily gave Amanda a memento of her and Jack’s wedding as children. But when all was said and done, Faux-manda dug her own grave by blackmailing Conrad (Henry Czerny) with video files she stole from Emily’s stash of revenge evidence.
Victoria tried to prove to Daniel (Joshua Bowman) that The Initiative was setting him up, and even had a bitch-on-bitch showdown with Helen Crowley, the head of The Initiative. Helen threatened to take Daniel away from Victoria if she didn’t hand over the evidence from flight 197, so Victoria… well, she shot her in cold blood!
In other sad news, Nolan (Gabriel Mann) discovered Aiden’s sister actually died 6 years ago, and there was even autopsy confirmation of her death! Aiden is now more capable than ever of revenge against The Initiative, and he was pushing away the one person who knows more about vengeance than he ever will!
To put the icing on Emily’s heartbroken cake, Daniel broke things off with her, claiming it wasn’t the best time to rekindle their relationship. In the end, Aiden came to his senses and apologized, and they cuddled by a fire. Personally, I think it’s best to have a sweet, endearing moment right before The Amanda explodes on next week’s episode!
