2010 Emmys: Ten Best Dressed Ladies

In: Donovan, Fashion

Last night, the Academy announced the best of the best from the 2009-2010 television season, but let’s face it, the crown every actress wants is the “Best Dressed” one. While some took chances and failed, others played it too safe and still failed.

The following ladies, IMHO, chose wise calculated risks, accessorized brilliantly and rocked it out on the red carpet. Taking into account that fashion is highly subjective, I reveal to you, the 10 best dressed ladies from last night. Check it out and see if you agree with my picks.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia didn’t go home with a golden statue, but who cares when you look like one. She sparkled in a Carolina Herrera gown accented by Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Brian Atwood heels. Muy caliente. Fun side note, Herrera loves Sofia’s sexy rolling Rs when saying her name.

After last week’s double eviction, two key players were evicted: Matt & Brendon. Now, we’ve got three brigade members (Hayden, Lane, and Enzo) and two “other” (Britney and Ragan). It’s getting down to the crunch and it’s about to get intense – more intense.

The HOH competition is coming up, and Hayden is the host. It’s Big Brother Black Jack, and Lane is hesitant to win for fear of having to deal with the dilemma of having to put up either Britney or a Brigade member.

After round one, although it was close between her and Enzo, Britney was eliminated. In Round two Enzo is eliminated, you know, so that he can keep in line with his losing streak. That means it’s between Ragan and Lane. The stakes are really high for Ragan, as he’s certain of the all male alliance and knows he is a target if Lane wins. Unfortunately, the cards don’t work in his favor and Lane wins HOH. Sort of like a Pandora’s box, Lane wins something good, but faces something bad in having to put up two people he has alliances with.

Are you a glutton for punishment? Do you want to walk around eggshells 24/7? If you answered yes to those questions, then you might have what it takes to work for J. Lo. While it’s widely known Jennifer Lopez can be high maintenance, a few of her “must-haves” for her new assistant, caught me off guard. It’s stuff like this that makes Jenny more known for her diva demands then for her music or movies. Here are some of the requirements a source revealed to Life & Style’s Scene Queens.

“The job is six days a week, at least 12-hour days with one day off, but you may not get off for weeks,”

Not only does her assistant have to work those hours, but the individual has to be on call 24 hours a day, seven days week. Might as well throw out having a life of your own, out the window.

“The person has to be graceful under pressure, have a thick skin and be resourceful in foreign countries, among other things,”

Thick skin for sure, you know Jenny from the Block will be throwing some of her Bronx attitude to you, if she doesn’t get her way. Resourceful in other countries. I’m surprised she didn’t require her assistant to be fluent in other languages.

The Last Exorcism Demonizes The Box Office

In: Donovan, Movies

In the narrowest of margins, “The Last Exorcism” edged out “Takers” by an estimated $300,000. The rankings between these two could change on Monday when the final numbers are released. Overall, the box office failed to break the $100 million mark for the first time this season, making it the worst weekend of the summer. With Labor Day next weekend, people are definitely trying to squeeze in last-minute sunshine fun during the dog days of summer.

The devilish thriller scared up $21,000,000 for an impressive debut. The mock documentary successfully utilized director Eli Roth’s name (Hostel) in marketing the film. In an equally impressive debut, the heist thriller raked in an estimated $21 million. Considering it was only playing in only 2,206 screens, that total represents a scorching $9,519 average per screen. With Paul Walker, Hadyen Christensen, Chris Brown and T.I. on board, the film was able to capitalize on its diverse cast’s different fanbases.

After two weeks on top, Stallone fell to third with his throwback mercenary film, but still gunned down an hefty $9.5 million. Julia Roberts’ “Eat Pray Love” charmed another $7 million in its third frame, while “The Other Guys” laughed up $6.6 million to round out the top 5.

Peter Breeze: X-Rated Angel

In: Music, Tommy D

HOLD YOUR BREATH…like seriously.

Last night, Peter Breeze launched his second music video, and I don’t think anyone was ready for it…myself included.

Peter Breeze and his gang of Heart Stealers are on a mission, they want your heart. (kinda how like Gaga wants you soul…hmm in Peter just on the quest for someone’s heart? Sorry I’m getting way to deep for a Sunday morning) With 6 in total including a who’s who of some of Vancouver’s best dancers and performers, this music video my Rami Films is hands DOWN the best thing I have seen made that is coming from Vancouver, Better than any other local music produced, better than any local television show produced, and especially better than any Web Series produced (but that’s a whole other posting all together).

The scene opens with Peter and his heart stealers sitting at a table, then they each go off in their own direction searching for their heart. Some go gay, some go dyke, some go straight but all end up in bathroom stalls. I’m not really surprised since I’ve seen most of those guys in the stalls in real life doing pretty much exactly that. The video is cut with great closeups of Peter, as well as some incredible dance routines, with choreography by Olivia Buckle (another one of these kids to watch).

Last winter, adidas unveiled their debut Originals Star Wars Collection. I guess their first line was a success, because they’re back with a brand new collection for Fall 2010. Instead of footwear inspired by Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Yoda, this time around R2-D2, C-3PO (both seen above), Boba Fett, Jabba the Hutt and Han Solo in Carbonite get the adidas treatment.

To be perfectly honest, I’m a little surprised adidas launched a second collection. During Brian and my trip to Europe this past Spring, any retail store that sold the products had them drastically reduced. Not only were they hella cheap, but there was plenty of stock, which to me signaled a lack of demand. Also in North America, I barely even saw the merchandise present at adidas stores when they were first shipped out. So I assumed there wasn’t much interest from shoppers and stores.

Dress Like Lady Gaga For Halloween

In: Donovan, Fashion, Music

Halloween is still two months away, but it’s never too early to start planning for the holiday. With Lady Gaga being such a major force in pop-culture these days, it should come as no surprise that a lot of girls and gays will probably dress like The Fame Monster come October 31. Heck, most people who go to her concerts already dress up already.

The folks at CostumeCraze.com proudly debuted their new officially licensed Gaga costumes for all of Gaga’s monsters. Whether you need a full outfit or just a few accessories to top your own homemade Gaga costume, they’ve got you covered. My personal fave is the “soda can wig“.

Everyone’s favorite heiress, NOT, was arrested again late Friday night in Las Vegas. The Sin City po-po booked her on suspicion of cocaine possession. Paris Hilton and her boy toy of the moment, Cy Waits, were stopped by a police officer, when he noticed an obvious odor. The officer than searched the vehicle and found the narcotics. The 29-year-old socialite was released early Saturday morning on her own recognizance.

This is third drug-related arrest for the ubiquitous “celebrity”. While watching a World Cup match in South Africa in July, Hilton was removed from the stadium and arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession. Charges were later dropped. Then later that month, Paris was caught with pot again. This time in Corsica, France. Once again, the charges were dropped. She’s human teflon. Nothing ever sticks.
