2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards: The Best Dressed List

Your event recap in five sentences or less: The MTV Movie Awards underwent an exciting/progressive format change this year and will now honor both film and television with gender-free awards; Adam Devine sang his opening monologue to the tune of “Beauty and the Beast” (cleverly re-titled “Movies and TV”); Vin Deisel accepted the 2017 generation award on behalf of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise and paused to honor Paul Walker while we all started bawling; MTV’s “best fight” award sustained an unnecessary name change to “best fight against the system;” Emma Watson took home the award for best actor in a movie—the first genderless acting award in history.

2017 Met Gala: The Best Dressed List

Whether the fashion industry had a sudden burst of adrenaline or the “avant-garde” theme opened up the floodgates of innovation, fashion’s favorite designers have made a stunning comeback from the 2016 Met Gala; the chrome robot army of yesteryear has blossomed into a chic flock of risk-takers. The challenge? Out-innovate Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons—the first living designer to be honored by the The Costume Institute in a monographic show since Yves Saint Laurent in 1983, according to an Institute press release.

TIME 100 Gala: The Best Dressed List

For 13 years TIME has penned an annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world—the good, the bad and all those in between—and then invited them all to dinner. This year’s TIME 100 gala was held Tuesday, April 25, at Frederick P. Rose Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City. Each year the list becomes more colorful, and at times, disheartening—but TIME is not to blame. In real news, the truth is unbiased. See Time’s full list of the 100 most influential people in the world here and let me know what you think. But for now, forget that Putin, Trump and Kim Jong Un all made the list, and enjoy the following couture-clad influencers. Read More

Desert Bloom

The desert does not lie. You can always expect the same dry heat, sun and to-die-for scenic views made of mountains, cacti and palm trees. Let it envelop you in its beauty and you’ll never want to leave. Read More

Product review: The Silicone Beauty Blender

The original Beauty Blender is the number-one purchased tool at Sephora, and yet it has an ideal 90-day shelf life according to the company website. If you’re loyal to the Beauty Blender, that’s $80 of income each year FOR SPONGES. Let that sink in. It’s less wasteful than buying cosmetic sponge wedges in bulk at your local drug store, but no less costly. And let’s be real, there are more important things in life. Like puppies. Read More

Introducing ‘Girl Talk,’ our official newsletter

Newsletters have become synonymous with all things I detest—lackluster content, junk mail, spam, sales calls. They are the offspring of this fantastical idea that we should have all the news we care about delivered to us in one beautiful well-written email, a private piece of tailored content just for us.

Maybe in a perfect world that’s possible. Read More

Between The Liner’s Favorite Films

They say movies have gotten better—that what we have now doesn’t even compare. I tend to believe the opposite is true. I treasure experiencing classic films like “Roman Holiday,” “To Catch a Theif,” and “The Wizard of Oz” over and over. There is no experience like watching “Gone With The Wind,” a movie with no CGI and few special effects, just talented actors, incredible sets, spectacular costumes and crafty cinematography. There will always be more stories to tell and surely new ways to tell them. But, does that make them inherently better? What if, in all our grandeur, we have stopped serving the story? Read More

9 Runway Worthy Evil Queen Costumes from ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time’

This post is for my own guilty pleasure. My favorite fairytale drama, which first aired 2011, is mid season six, with its seventh season yet to be confirmed. A steady slip in ratings post season three, likely attributing to unfinished arcs, inconsistent character motives and an odd, seemingly necessary death near the end of season five leave audiences fearful that the show’s end will parallel that of “Lost” (show bosses Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis’s last project, renowned for its anticlimactic and disappointing end).

2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Best Dressed List

After the ceremony, the press junket, the photo ops, and for some celebrities, a quick dress change, Hollywood’s most exclusive after-party begins. Yes, most celebs wore not one but two couture gowns in the same night (like we didn’t already have reason enough to be jealous). This year’s Vanity Fair Oscar Party was held in a custom Basil Walter–designed space in Beverly Hills, between the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and City Hall, according to vanityfair.com. My take on this year’s green-and-white carpet? Let’s just say it was far more interesting than the red carpet earlier that evening. Read More
