A landmark event just shocked the world—something rarer than a lunar eclipse, a volcanic eruption or Michael Bay producing a decent movie.
Music icon and The Voice judge Christina Aguilera has ditched her trademark platinum blonde for a sultry red! Always one to make an entrance, Xtina debuted her fiery locks at "Hillary Clinton: She’s With Us Fundraiser Concert" on Monday, where she performed, and on Instagram.
The fabulous new shade still capitalizes on her beloved old Hollywood aesthetic, and the result is Jessica Rabbit 1940s Pin-Up Slayage with a modern edge.
Aguilera was taking insane risks with fashion when Lady Gaga and Nick Minaj were still in grade school, but she hasn't made a such drastic hair change since dyeing it black in 2003. Hopefully, like Xtina, this shade is here to stay!
Check out some of Xtina's fiercest hair moments below! What do you think of her new 'do?
The first Monday is May may be ho-hum for us working-stiffs but if you’re among the celebrity elite, it is the Superbowl of fashion events. The annual Met Gala—an event hosted by Vogue Magazine, that celebrates the opening of the fashion exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art—is held in New York City, and it boasts one of the most extreme red carpets of the season.
This year’s theme is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age Of Technology.” Like contestants on Project Runway, stylists bolted for the nearest metallic dresses and bedazzlers.
This Small Screen Girl, who would happily live in sweatpants if I didn’t have to go to said day job, dies for the sublime moments of wearable art and cringe-worthy moments of horrendous fails. The only edit I have for next year is that there should be actual Anna Wintour-trained fashion police to escort people off the red carpet who dare to show up in regular clothes.
Fittingly, technology only makes the Met Gala coverage better. Thanks to social media, fashionistas across the planet can react to the red carpet chaos in real time, and they wasted no time providing hilarious and merciless commentary on the over-the-top ensembles.
Here are by favorite and most lethal reactions to Met Gala fashion...
If you think an expanding baby bump dooms you to two trimesters of chaste, tent-esque maternity clothes, then you haven’t seen model and TV personality and mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen on a red carpet.
Teigen, who is expecting a daughter with husband John Legend, is redefining pregnancy chic by clinging to fashion staples—leather, heels and denim shorts—and embracing her growing bump.
Check out Chrissy’s dynamic pregnancy style!
Small Screen Girl Confession: I’m not a Star Wars fan. Growing up, the movies were the endless obstacle between me and my cartoons. Fast forward a decade or two, and I still don’t know the difference between the Millennium Falcon and a Death Star. And is a Sith Lord a fancy Darth Vader?
However, I finally found a reason to love the franchise, and it’s definitely not because of the carpet-bombing of promotional product tie-ins (How did survive without Star Wars-themed tea-infusers, fruit, barbecue utensils, computers or condoms?). It’s star Lupita Nyong’o’s one-woman parade of fashion that she has brought to nearly every promotional event and premiere for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" from Mexico City to London and beyond. From sweetly simple to futuristic fierceness, a fashion icon she is.
