The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2015 Emmy Awards: Who Stood Out
Tons of stars turned out for The 67th Annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sunday night to honor television's greatest shows of 2015 -- but the fashion wasn't as impressive as in years past. Perhaps it was the 100-degree temperatures?

Despite the heat, there weren't many red carpet stand outs, and it seemed like there were more fashion "misses" than "hits."

Black was one of the most popular colors of the night, and stars including Julianne Hough, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lady Gaga and Taraji P. Henson were some of the best dressed at the event.

"Modern Family" star Ariel Winter has revealed that she recently had breast reduction surgery.

The 17-year-old actress shared her story with Glamour magazine on Wednesday, telling the magazine that she went from a head-turning 32F down to a 34D on June 4 because all the attention she was getting was because of her chest.

"We live in a day and age where everything you do is so ridiculed. As women in the industry, we are totally oversexualised and treated like objects," Ariel explains. "Every article that has to do with me on a red carpet has to do with 'Ariel Winter's Crazy Cleavage!' or '...

Just Looking: Hollywood's Hottest Jailbait

It's nothing to be ashamed of; we get older, and stars just seem to get younger and prettier. And while there is nothing wrong with just looking, we must always remember the age-old adage '15 will get you 20.'

The youngest and most talented actresses and musicians are almost inevitably beautiful as well, many looking considerably older than their actual appearance might suggest.

Still, we know you don't want Google or Yahoo (or your spouse for that matter) to think you're a creepy perv when you search for 'Sexy Stars' expecting to get Mariah Carey or Scarlet Johansson, and instead get a l...

Some stars like to say what they feel by blasting it across their chests.

Last week we spotted Britney Spears wearing a "Spiritual Gangsters" top as she shopped in Los Angeles. The singer often walks around in loose clothing, so it's no surprise that she's a fan of the yoga clothing company.

The pop star is in the midst of working on her new album and recently released the single "Ooh La La" in support of family movie "Smurfs 2."

Her ex-husband Kevin Federline tied the knot in Las Vegas last weekend. He and Spears have two sons together, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

The lovely Latina star of TV show "Modern Family" started busting out at the age of 13, and she begged her mum to let her go under the knife because she was so self-conscious.

How 'Modern Family' Is Saving The Family Sitcom

1/16/2010 10:15am EST
Modern Family
This article hopefully will serve as an adequate mea culpa. In a fall article we mentioned that 'Modern Family' was weak, formulaic, and full of hyperbolic stereotypes. In short, not worth staying on the ABC schedule. It did not take the recent Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Series- Musical or Comedy to change our view.

Thanks to a day off and time to kill on Hulu, we watched the second episode of the show. Needless to say, lunch was skipped, all remaining episodes were viewed, and we realized how unrepresentative a pilot can be. Now we are such unwavering fans of the show th...
