Does this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly defy the laws of physics by being bigger on the inside than it would appear from looking at its exterior? Fans of the British science fiction show Doctor Who may well think so. For this week’s cover story, senior writer Clark Collis travels to the UK to meet with Peter Capaldi, the new star of the now 51-year-old time travel saga, and to find out what fans can expect from the forthcoming season of Doctor Who, which premieres on BBC America on Aug. 23. “He’s more alien than we’ve seen him for a while,” says the actor, speaking about his version of the eccentric Time Lord. “He is less patient with the foibles of human beings.”

“So Blake Lively just launched her Goop” is how someone explained Blake Lively’s new website to me a few hours ago. Now, I am not a cynical person. I believe in giving everything at least half a chance. I can acknowledge that Goop is a thing that people care about, even though nobody can figure out whether to spell it “GOOP” or “goop” or “Goop.”
And to the extent that every generation needs their Goop–just like every generation needs a hero or a Highlander or a defining entry in the MarioKart series–Blake Lively seems like someone who could pull that off. Obviously, Leighton Meester would be preferable, but Jessica Szohr would be less preferable, and anyhow Lively seems to have quietly semi-retired from acting and settled down for a life of being merely famous and fashionable living an exciting perpetual life with her sexiest-man-alive husband.

So, yeah: This summer, fictional housewife Marge Simpson joins a long line of boldfaced names—including, most recently, Lorde, Kelly Osbourne, and, er, Maleficent—who have inspired MAC cosmetics makeup collections. The 10-piece line includes lip glosses, false eyelashes, nail stickers, brightly colored eyeshadows (yes, there’s a bright blue) and blushes, though, curiously, none come in shades of yellow. (How can you really get the Marge Simpson look without aping her signature skin tone?) READ FULL STORY
This fall, Scandal fans can come one step closer to becoming Olivia Pope. On September 22, a Scandal-inspired fall fashion line that “embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic,” will debut in The Limited clothing stores. Kerry Washington, who portrays D.C. political fixer Olivia Pope, developed the collection with Scandal‘s costume designer Lyn Paolo, and the debut will mark the first time a national retailer has collaborated with the star and costume designer of a top-rated television show on a fashion line.
“The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it,” Washington said in a statement. Paolo added, “We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view.” READ FULL STORY
Rihanna shone bright like
a diamond Swarovski crystals at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards Monday night.
The singer was decked out in a custom dress, designed by Rihanna’s costume designer Adam Selman, that was made out of mesh and 216,000 pieces of twinkling cut glass. Here’s the thing about crystals and mesh, as Britney and Cher are well aware: They give the appearance of being totally naked…save for some kind of nude-colored thong, in Rihanna’s case at least.
The CFDA Awards are an annual event that “recognizes the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry and related arts, with awards being given for design excellence.” Rihanna was named 2014’s Fashion Icon. Check out her full look below. READ FULL STORY
Fine, we admit it: PopWatch went a little Kardashian krazy yesterday. Yet in all the hubbub over last weekend’s big Kimye-palooza — the Smash-esque wall of flowers… and the
Trix Rabbit Batman costumes… and the 20-minute toasts… and the odds that it’s all going to come crashing down within a year — we neglected to mention something important: Kim and Kanye weren’t the only two celebrities to tie the knot over Memorial Day Weekend.
Both House alum Lisa Edelstein and Happy Endings star Casey Wilson walked down the aisle Sunday as well. (Edelstein wed artist Robert Russell; Wilson wed David Caspe, who created both Happy Endings and Wilson’s new NBC sitcom, Marry Me.) Each actress got married in California; each was probably ecstatic that the media’s attention was fully focused elsewhere that day.
But while Edelstein wore what appears to be a perfectly nice sleeveless gown, Wilson’s dress was white, lacy, and topped with long, romantic, semi-sheer sleeves — much like Kardashian’s own. (You know, Wedding Dress No. 5. From her third marriage.) The difference: Casey’s is so much better! Unless you’re into space lobster bibs or the dress Samantha Parkington wears to sip tea with Grandmary. Like, come on: READ FULL STORY
This weekend, Kim Kardashian was married for the third time. The #Kimye wedding saw the reality TV star don two separate wedding dresses. That’s a relatively modest number: Kim’s 2011 wedding to basketball caveman Kris Humphries featured three different bridal gowns. When you factor in her early-2000s marriage to Damon Thomas, this means that Kim Kardashian has worn six dresses at three weddings. Three Weddings and Six Dresses could probably make a charming romantic comedy, but until Kris Jenner sells the movie rights to Kim’s life, we’ll have to settle for a style-centric back-and-forth between EW staffers and Kardashian experts Hillary Busis and Darren Franich. Because Game of Thrones wasn’t on this week, darn it, and this is the next best thing. (Kris is such an Olenna.) READ FULL STORY
We’re all for expressing yourself — but no, Madonna, you can’t wear a tiny strip of cloth to the Met Gala.
There were plenty of crazy ensembles at Monday night’s Anna Wintour-run Met Gala. Sadly, though, there wasn’t one from Madonna, because she chose not to attend. Why? Just check out the singer’s Instagram. “What i wanted to wear to Met Ball but Anna said Not this year! So I’m gonna work on music instead? #artforfreedom,” Madonna wrote, next to a picture of her alleged dream look. The outfit appears to be a series of long band-aids that would have fully exposed the Material Girl’s breasts. #Fashion.
And that’s how you make sure your name stays in the headlines without even showing up to a major event. Sorry, Jay Z mock proposing to Beyoncé on the red carpet: Madonna is the best at Being A Celebrity that there ever was or will be. Check out a photo of her insane outfit below: READ FULL STORY
An unscientific sampling of Twitter comments has led EW’s Fashion Elves to conclude that the following dresses from the Fash-indig known as the Met Gala have caused a divide among the masses. And if these differences of opinion are not resolved, we’re pretty sure lives will be lost, families will be split up, and the country will crumble. Well, all that OR life will go on as normal. But why risk it?
Help settle the debate by voting on six of the most polarizing dresses in our polls below. READ FULL STORY
