Fashion Fails: Kate Mara, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Idina Manzel, More

June 15th, 2014 3:05pm EDT
Kate Mara
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Kate Mara's dress is so rigid she looks like a Barbie doll posing in it. We've seen these shaped "bell" dresses before, and they look anything but comfortable. It doesn't help that it has all of that messy glitter all over it like she was a fake Christmas tree. Check out another look at Mara's fail and the rest from this past week below:

“Boy I know you love it, how we’re smart enough to make these millions…strong enough to bear the children…then get back to business.” Sang with the strength and power of Sasha Fierce (aka Beyonce) one of the many recent celebs to have her own bundle of joy, Blue Ivy Carter.

Pregnancy doesn’t judge. It isn’t racist or sexist and it sure as heck doesn’t care where you come from or what you look like. Pregnancy is a part of life that most women will encounter sometime in their years whether you are a middle-class American, Italian, Japanese, Sudanese or a celebrity.

As females we are given t...

Producer Kathy Connell spoke about what sets the SAG Awards apart from the other major ceremonies. "We are separate because this is an award that's given by actors," she explained. "It's given by the actors' union, SAG-AFTRA. There's no other voting group that's larger than ours, and they're professionals who know what it takes to give a fine performance.

Actors Courteney Cox, Busy Philipps and Josh Hopkins are celebrating after finding a new network to call home for their comedy Cougar Town.

Oscars 2012
The Academy Awards aren't just about the movies - they're about the fashion and what the stars wore on the red carpet at the year's biggest event.

This year, much like the ceremony itself, there were few surprises and all the stars looked fabulous on the red carpet outside the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Well, okay - Kristen Wiig's brown J. Mendel dress and Meryl Streep's gold Lanvin gown? Not so much.

This year's highlights include Angelina Jolie looking stunning - although also a bit thin - in a black Atelier Versace dress that's almost an exact match of the one Jennifer Aniston wore ...

Busy Philipps: 'Please Do Not Airbrush My Moles Out'

February 15th, 2012 8:59am EST
Busy Philipps
Busy Philipps defied producers' orders to remove her trademark moles because she refused to alter her body just to win a role.

The "Cougar Town" star was just starting out in the business when TV bosses urged her to undergo treatments to make her skin blemish-free.

She tells New York Magazine, "I had been told early on by a (different) producer - this is no joke - that I should have all of my moles removed. And really, the thought is so f**king ludicrous. So I would have scars instead of black spots on my body?"

The actress stuck to her guns and admits she now flaunts her prized imperfec...

2012 Critics Choice Awards Fashion: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

January 13th, 2012 9:14am EST
Critics Choice Awards
Unlike the upbeat and youthful People's Choice Awards, the stars at Thursday night's Critics Choice Awards showed up in more subdued attire, taking their jobs much more seriously (and not in a good way).

Where was the pop of color? Where were the glittering gowns? We have one word for this bunch of celebs: boring.

Emma Stone continued her green trend from the People's Choice Awards in an emerald dress last night. But what's with the cutouts, strings and belt? Thumbs down.

We salute Elle Fanning for dressing her age, but we dislike the yellow and turqoise gown.

Actress Busy Philipps has reached out to her fans to help rename Cougar Town, after executive producer Bill Lawrence blamed the saucy title for the show's lack of viewers.

Lawrence admitted last year that TV chiefs are considering changing Courteney Cox's programs name after it moved direction as the plot progressed since its inception in 2009. And the TV boss is still eager to re-launch the series with a name change, as he's convinced the title is putting off viewers and jeopardizing its future.

'Cougar Town' Scoop From PaleyFest

March 10th, 2010 9:00am EST
Cougar Town
"Cougar Town" started as a star vehicle to bring Courteney Cox-Arquette back to comedic network television. Creator Bill Lawrence knew from the get go he wanted to work with her and was somewhat hesitant about pitching her the title in case she found it offensive or simply took it the wrong way. Luckily for him-- and for all of us, really-- Cox-Arquette has one of the best senses of humor in show business, and she easily turns that in on herself. Who else would perform a scene where she opens a towel, stares at her naked body in the mirror, cries out in disgust and then begins poking and pi...

Slideshow: Other Actresses Worthy Of 'Cougar Town' Residency

Cougar Town Residents
Cougar Town premiered on ABC last week, shining the spotlight on a subject that has fascinated young men since the beginning of time. Courtney Cox is a perfect choice to head the cast, but unfortunately that seems to be where the good decisions end. The only other cougar on this show is Christa Miller (the sort-of attractive female friend from The Drew Carey Show), and she's not so much a cougar as she is someone who inspires the phrase "She must have been hot back in her prime." The female cast is rounded out by Busy Philipps, who is certainly attractive, but only 30 and still far removed ...

Realistic 'Coming Of Age' Shows Desperately In Need Of A Comeback

April 21st, 2008 10:00am EDT
My So-Called Life
Take a look at the television landscape, and you will see a mix of good and bad. There are medical dramas, shameless reality television programs, quirky sitcoms, and sappy TV movies. There are gritty action-thrillers, animated comedies, and shows that break the time-space continuum. There is one television genre that has been noticeably underrepresented: realistic, coming of age programs.

Quick, name three recent programs that dealt with young people finding their way in the world that didn’t pander to the audience, wasn’t a show driven by sexuality, and wasn’t a program that tied ...
