• Weekend Hot! or Hmm…: The 85th Annual Academy Awards, Jay-Z, Monica, and More!

    It’s a new week Bombers and Bombshells! As we go back to slave at our respective places of business, let’s bask in the glamour from this weekend. On the schedule were the Oscars (and several Oscars pre-parties), and other assorted high wattage events for our celebrity friends to enjoy.

    Weekend Hot or Hmm- 022513

    Let’s take a look!


    When has Kerry Washington ever gotten it wrong on the red carpet? She looked simply fab in this embellished coral Miu Miu dress. Hot!


    Kelly Rowland gave a generous helping of toned gam in this Donna Karan Atelier gown. Yes! I love Kelly and this dress, but the hair is looking like a Cinnabon left a little too long in the oven. But I forgive her!


    As expected, miss Jennifer Lawrence stunned in Dior Haute Couture.

    Quvenzhané Wallis was positively adorable in her Armani gown– and that puppy purse? My ovaries are in no condition to handle such cuteness.


    Jennifer Hudson went for all-out glam in this in shimmery Robetro Cavalli Couture frock. Love!


    If ever there is a famine of elegance, let Naomie Harris feed the malnourished youths. The Skyfall actress came hard once again, absolutely killin’ it in this golden gown designed by Ghanian-born Michael Badger. Badger is a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and created the dress as part of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress Challenge.

    Zoe Saldana‘s Alexis Mabille gown had one too many embellishments up top. Belt, bow, bedazzled flowers? How much can one tailored bodice take?

    Note to Charlize Theron: never ever grow your hair out again! The Snow White and the Huntsman actress looked fearsomely beautiful in Dior Couture and that fab pixie cut!

    I’m kind of sad to see Salma Hayek‘s bodacious decolletage covered up, but she looks absolutely sickening in this Alexander McQueen column dress! No complaints here!

    Helena Bonham Carter cooked up raggly scraggly couture for the girls. They could barely swallow a morsel.


    Zoe Kravitz and mum Lisa Bonet attended the Chanel Pre-Oscar dinner this weekend. I’m not keen on either of these looks.

    Over in Milan, Janet Jackson served up Poetic Justice realness front row at the Roberto Cavalli show.

    Jay-Z threw an afterpary for his beloved D’Ussé congac. Here he is in a $275 black Pyrex Vision “The Entombment of Christ” Graphic Religion hoodie and link chain I want.


    Ludacris offered himself as the (literal) yardstick for questionable sartorial choices in this tape measure jogging top. Monica looks as uncomfortable as I am with this look.

    And there you have it! Which ‘fits were your favorite?
