Is it me, or are the bad dresses always the most fun? Because personally? I think the bad dresses are always most fun. And you know what’s also kind of fun? That two ‘Big Bang Theory’ stars showed up to the SAGs looking like a basket of beat ass. Well, wait. To be fair, Johnny Galecki (who took the number one worst dressed spot, along with his girlfriend, Kelli Garner) showed up to the SAGs looking like a basket of beat (greasy) ass, while Kaley Cuoco, in the number five slot, looked … well, she looked comical. Cartoonish, even. And also, that big hair of hers makes her head look huge. Coming from someone who has a big head herself, I can tell you: one thing you never want to do is tease your crown, because it’s going to look like … well, that. Yike.
Here’s the rest of the worst dressed!
#4 – Anne Hathaway
#3 – Jane Lynch
#2 – Sigourney Weaver
#1 – Johnny Galecki and his girlfriend, who is not Courtney Love, despite the uncanny resemblance

I guess it’s lingerie. I don’t know. Because really, when I hear about hot chicks donning stuff for Esquire (which is the magazine that took these lovely photos of Kaley), much skimpier articles of clothing come to mind, rather than Kaley and her grandma negligee, her boy shorts, and midriff-exposing (!) top. But don’t get me wrong—I think it’s really refreshing to see a hot girl not having to take it all off to sell magazines. For sure. Which is why this is Mexico Esquire.
Anyway. Ahem. This is an excerpt from Kaley’s interview. With Mexico Esquire.
On “The Big Bang Theory:”
“This series is the dream job. I can make people laugh everyday, I enjoy recording and working with an impressive array [of people]. I feel like I won the lottery.”
On what foods she breaks the diet for:
“I break the diet for tacos, enchiladas, burritos or rice and beans … I love it.”
On what she considers sexy:
“I think being sexy is being yourself. I feel sexy even when I have no makeup or my hair is a mess. And I can be sexy in t-shirt and jeans, why not try to be anyone but myself. A lot of people find it hard to love, no one is perfect, and the mirror usually sees our flaws, but when you are as natural as possible, you are more sexy.”
OK. Anti-climatic for sure, but grounded nonetheless, right?

First, can we all just kind of agree that Kaley Cuoco is, indeed, the hottest woman on television? I know we’ve got chicks like Sofia Vergara and Christina Hendricks, but Kaley just strikes me as really low-maintenance (a notion that turned out to be kind of right), and honestly, what’s hotter than that? Here’s Kaley’s latest interview and photo shoot with Maxim Australia, where she talks how great she is, how great guys think she is, and how anyone who doesn’t think she’s the bees’ knees should probably checkity-check themselves before they wreckity-wreck themselves (because she’s the greatest).
Kaley on avoiding the whole Hollywood scene:
“I’m very uninvolved in the Hollywood scene. I might have been to a club once in my entire life. I’m the biggest homebody. I think I’ve been hungover one time, and I hated the feeling. I love being at home with the dogs. I wish I wasn’t so pathetic. I fall asleep on the couch, no matter what, every night between 8:30 and nine. I am not exaggerating.”
On whether she’s ever had an unrequited crush:
“I’m sorry, but I usually get what I want. When I go for something, there’s nothing that stops me. Nothing.”
On whether she’s dating anyone:
“I’m not. I’m newly single. I’m always the girl with the boyfriend. I love having a boyfriend, because I think I’m the greatest girlfriend in the world.”
On what makes her so great:
“Because I’m awesome! I’m such a guys girl. I love every sport. I’ll go to any game, any time. I can eat, I can drink, I can have such a good time with the guys. I’m just not a girly girl. I’m completely low-maintenance, and I think that’s great for a guy.”
So. Does telling everyone you meet how hot you are make you even hotter? Because if that’s the case, well, forget Kaley being the hottest chick on television. She’s probably the hottest chick on the FACE OF THE EARTH, and you better not say otherwise or she’ll CONVINCE YOU.

You guys know – you guys know – how much Lea Michelle generally unnerves me and doesn’t do a whole lot that I think is talk-worthy or even think-worthy, but when push comes to shove and it’s time to give credit where credit is due, I have to begrudgingly admit that Lea Michele was, by far, the best dressed at the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Best. The dress is a perfect cut for her, the shoes are totally enviable (if they just … fit her a little bit better), and the hair is the ultimate compliment to the tightly-bound dress. The accessories topped it all off. I couldn’t have chosen a better look if I even knew what I was talking about. Really.
Other honorable mentions of the evening include Jessica Lange, who, at 62, blows away 95% of the fashion competition with her sparkly black dress and understated makeup (though she definitely could have left the black satin clogs or whatever they are in the back of her closet where they belong); Kaley Cuoco, who, I wasn’t sure at first whether or not I loved or hated the dress because it kind of reminded me of an exotic bird of prey, but I then succumbed to the general awesomeness that is all soft and tissue-like and pretty; Tilda Swinton, who could wear a black garbage bag (with yellow ties) and still look sophisticated and untouchable and never, ever dated; and Sofia Vergara, who should almost always be at the top of every awards ceremony ‘best dressed’ list just because of that body. And her choice of color, I suppose, too.
Who takes the best?

Here are some random thoughts from last night’s People’s Choice Awards. (Did you watch? I kept checking my Twitter feed, and it was almost as if no one was watching.)
The evening opened with a prerecorded scene from the set of The Big Bang Theory, which utterly confused my mother. It was sweetly contrived, but as soon as Kaley Cuoco bounded onstage, the energy seemed to fizzle.
I am not too sure Kaley Cuoco was the best pick to host. Oh, sure, she was game for the job. She was animated, perky (almost shrill), and yet somehow totally charmless.
There was a “comedic” bit where Kaley found Neil Patrick Harris in the audience, already mic’d and flanked by two showgirls—he is practically a career awards-ceremony host, after all, and he always likes to begin the evening with a musical number—and Kaley yanked at his dress shirt, revealing a blue sequined vest. “I knew it!” she said something like. “A breakaway tuxedo!”
NPH protested, then prepared to lapse into song anyway, while Kaley shouted for security. As NPH was physically dragged away I found myself thinking “Awww,” because I kind of did hope for a musical number. And as I slowly realized I would not get to hear a musical number, I found myself, like, really disappointed.
The first winner of the night was Emma Stone. She tripped on her way up the stairs—she wasn’t even wearing a dress! She was wearing slacks!—and she made the sweetest little “argh” face. I thought this was a very auspicious beginning to the show. I said to my mom, “Emma Stone! First trip of the night! Right out of the gate!” and my mother said, “Who’s Emma Stone?”
Emma Stone treated her win seriously and sincerely, although she was a little rambling. Still, I wish many other winners had followed her lead.
Sharon Osbourne co-presented the award for “Favorite Talk Show,” while her own show, “The Talk,” was not even nominated. Awkward.

So a couple very special things happened at the 2011 Emmy Awards last night. For one, freaking Barry Pepper vindicated himself with a gosh-damned Emmy win. For another, my mom is so excited for Emmy-minted Kyle Chandler, star of Friday Night Lights.
First of all, this ensemble is en pointe, straight up. “Ballerina-length” dresses can do serious disservice to a pretty figure, but this particular confection, by designer Romona Keveza, is far from frumpy.
The way that sheer fabric is gathered over one shoulder, ah! Perfect! Even subtler: the lining of the dress stops just above the knee, so that the rest of the tulle netting is sheer—but not trashy-sheer!—all the way to Cuoco’s ankle. The dress’s skirt leaves Miss Cuoco’s splendid red, peep-toe pumps exposed. And then there’s that adorable, matchy-matchy red clutch.
And the whole thing is so perfect that I—HOLY HELL! WHAT DID BETH FRICKE, MANICURIST TO THE STARS, DO TO KALEY CUOCO’S NAILS?
Don’t try to tell me this is “fashion-forward.” I hereby christen it the “Penn Jillette Manicure,” for obvious reasons.
Otherwise? For my money, best look of the night, hands-down.
