Anne Hathaway actually blew me away with her punk transformation for the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum (or Met Gala for short). Doesn’t she look great as a blonde? Every year celebs dress to the hilt for the event for whatever the theme is. This year, it’s punk. So keep that in mind when looking at these photos — these looks are supposed to be crazy and over the top.
BEST: Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Sienna Miller
WORST: Almost everyone else, but especially Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian and honestly there were so many more I couldn’t even deal with.
PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY: Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway

Actress, purveyor of body shame and rich white woman Gwyneth Paltrow faces adversity in her day to day life on levels we couldn’t possibly fathom. She has too many pairs of black Armani slacks to wear and struggles to decide between straight cut or skinny, her local Whole Foods was out of organic sugar-free New Zealand beeswax essence the last time she sent her personal chef for groceries and one of her kids ate a single M&M proffered from a private school classmate last week and she’s afraid Apple will develop Diabetes before her 10th birthday. It’s a difficult world out there, and that’s not even including relationships. Her marriage to Chris Martin? It can totally be hard sometimes, guys. :(
From Glamour UK (via DigitalSpy):
“It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple,” she said.
“I asked my dad once, ‘How did you and Mom stay married for 33 years?’ And he said, ‘Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time’. And I think that’s what happens.
“When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person’s saying, ‘Come on, we can do this’, you carry on.
“We laugh, we’re good friends, we like to do the same stuff. I’m a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter.
“So I never say, ‘Where are you? You should be home by now’. I never place demands on him because I think he’s a really talented man and he’s putting something good into the world.”

It’s not enough that Gwyneth Paltrow wants to tell you how wrong your life is and how right hers always has and always will be at every available opportunity in print. No, now she’s going to bring along fellow psycho, advocate of the 700 calorie per day diet and “personal trainer” Tracy Anderson for a ten episode online mini-series called Second Chances. As in, you don’t always have to be a fat, poor failure! If you listen to me and Tracy here, we’ll give you a second chance at being just like us!
Think that doesn’t sound bad enough? Well, think again. Ryan Seacrest Productions is bankrolling and producing this bullshit. Lord, give me strength.
“It’s a new focus for us, in the context of this company,” he said of digital development at Ryan Seacrest Prods.
The Paltrow project emanated from TV development that Ryan Seacrest Prods. was working on with the A-list actress. “Second Chances,” which co-stars fitness guru Tracy Anderson, reveals the inspiring stories of women who’ve overcome all manner of adversity.
AOL is expected to announce “Second Chances” as part of its newfronts slate on Tuesday in New York.
Hilariously, this seems a whole lot like Amanda de Cadenet’s The Conversation, which Gwyneth appeared on but failed to secure a second season from Lifetime. Oopsies.

Not only was “most beautiful woman” Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Iron Man 3 premiere dress a crime against fashion, it was also a crime against basic human decency, which states that you should keep your asscheeks in check when in public and not have them hanging out. Funny thing is, she knew this and wore it anyway. But she wants you to know that she knew it, and she’s like, totally embarrassed!
From The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via DigitalSpy):
Paltrow said that the world could see “her ass hanging out” of the Antonio Berardi dress.
She admitted: “I had kind of a disaster. I was doing a show and I changed there and I went and I couldn’t wear underwear.
“Well, let’s just say everyone went scrambling for a razor… I went from being the most beautiful to the most humiliated. In one day.”

The staff at People must’ve taken a particularly gnarly peyote trip before sending their “Most Beautiful People” issue to newsstands, as Gwyneth Paltrow came out on top, over like, everyone else on the planet. Let that sink in for a moment and try not to regurgitate your lunch.
Anyway, you know ol’ Gwynnie she’s so down-to-earth and humble that the honour totally came as a massive shock to her, and she’s actually pretty embarrassed that the world thinks she’s as great as she thinks she is! Oh me, oh my!
From E! News:
“Oh, lord,” the 40-year-old mom of two said at tonight’s Iron Man 3 premiere in Hollywood. “It’s very sweet and I’m so embarrassed, but I’m so happy.”
“It’s so weird,” Paltrow continued. “It’s crazy. It’s very sweet. I’m so flattered. I’m thrilled.”
When asked if hubby Chris Martin now has to tell her how beautiful she is all the time, Paltrow cracked, “It’s like the American version of a knighthood basically. My title just got longer.”
Okay, first of all, shut up. Second of all, Chris thinks you’re annoying, so no, he probably doesn’t tell you how beautiful you are (as if your head isn’t large enough already). Third of all, shut up. I’ve never seen such a gross display of false humility in my life. Be gone, before someone drops a house on you!

Gwyneth Paltrow would never let an opportunity to brag about her life go by, so we shouldn’t be surprised that she’s continued her stream of annoying food talk, name-dropping and endless amounts of other bullshit by trying to humble brag about the fact that she doesn’t wear full make-up 24/7 and actually chills out in casual clothes (which no doubt cost thousands of dollars) when at home with her family. Why, I never!
From People (who felt the need to name her it’s Most Beautiful Person, a title so ridiculous I can’t even speak on it):
“Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup. That’s what they’re used to,” she says. As for her husband, Chris Martin, “He’ll make a joke about it. If I’ve gotten fully dressed up, he’ll be like, ‘Oh, wow! You’re Gwyneth Paltrow!’ Because he’s used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair.”
“It makes me look younger and feel strong,” says the actress, who does the Tracy Anderson Method five days a week. “When I first started, I thought, ‘I’ll never be good at this. This is a nightmare!’ But now it’s like brushing my teeth, I just do it.”
Why does this woman expect a special prize for being a normal f-cking human being? It drives me absolutely bonkers. Also, her daughter Apple is apparently starting to become interested in make-up and Gwyneth lets her wear it, despite the fact that she’s only 8. But it’s all part of positive body image, don’t you know?
“When we’re home sometimes, she’ll put on mascara. And sometimes I’ll let her wear something out to dinner – but just a little dab,” she says.
“Also having a father who adores you the way that he adores her is very good for your body image. The more we can love her and let her be who she is, the more confident she’ll feel.”
Well letting her be who she is might include eating carbohydrates and not having an insane person as a mother, but you know, shit happens.
