RiRi - Channeling Josephine Baker?
RiRi – Channeling Josephine Baker?

It was another big night for style at this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards. Models, designers and actors gathered to honor the best and brightest in the world of fashion. Everyone brought their mostly A game, though there were some looks like that I’m sure only the people wearing them could really pull off. Here are some of those choice looks, and a list of the event’s winners.

I usually hate “OMG can you believe she just had a baby” comments, but can you believe Olivia Wilde recently pushed a tiny human out of her body?

Okay, so I saved Solange for last because she looks wonderful in Calvin Klein, and we all know girl had a rough May. I think we can move past Elevator-Gate and get back to enjoying her amazing style, and hair.

Yep. We sat through the entire awards show, but that ain’t no big thang. We always do, because it’s like my job or something. That sure doesn’t mean I don’t have biases or favorites, right? I wouldn’t be the opinionated human sack of gossip you’ve grown to barely tolerate love. Right? RIGHT???

Meh. Pitbull is okay, I guess.
Meh. Pitbull is okay, I guess.

So…here are the winners, and I don’t have too many complaints aside from Pitbull trying his hand at a hosting gig and the  Best New Artist…which clearly should have been awarded to our town’s  Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, forpitysake. YOU know it and I know it; so let’s just move along.

WHAAAA??? ME????

Overall, the shows was okay. I really was hoping for some wins for Bruno Mars, which would’ve given us a hot performance, but alas–Timberlake won those awards.  I did notice the  not-too-subtle public shaming of Robin Thicke. Hmmmmm…Not all the surprising.

Even Miley was decent; although her staging was, well–odd?

WTAF? Oh. Right. “She’s just bein’ Maaaahleee, y’all.”

One more thing: How great did Joan Jett and Dave Grohl look? LOVE THEM!

Overall, what did alla ya’ll think? Anyone with me on the Bruno Mars sitch?  Did ABC think they’d get more viewers/higher ratings with Timberlake winning performing? Just as simple questions; don’t LEAP all over me.

Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder To Perform on VH1’s ‘DIVAS LIVE’?

DIVA-HANDS

 

Made ya look!  Sometimes things just make me laugh–like this photo of our precious Eddie Vedder doing what we call “Diva hands’.  Seriously. I nearly tinkled a little.

I think Ed’s technique is EVERY bit as fierce as Christina’s, RiRi’s and Lady Gaga’s.  And frankly, he’s more committed to the move than Mariah–but she’s allowed to be a bit lazy after all these years, right?

C’mon. Snort-laugh with me.
