Oscars Back Story: 5 dresses we love from behind

Everyone loves an actress who gives back. (Don’t worry I feel creepy already.) Here are the five coolest Backs of Gowns we noticed on last night’s Oscars 2012 red carpet.

Okay, maybe I don’t love it from the back. I’m just not that into it from the front. The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo star told Ryan Seacrest she’d picked out this Givenchy gown that very morning, so that could explain the Leeloo from The Fifth Element bandages trying to keep the dress up. And if you use your imagination a little, a pale yellow serpent’s tongue is creeping all over her butt. I don’t know, maybe that’s what she’s into? (Nah. She’s not into this at all.)

Oscars: Jennifer Lopez's stylist on her alleged wardrobe malfunction: 'There's no chance that there were any...slips.'

There was much internet speculation as to what exactly it was we were seeing maybe peeking out from Jennifer Lopez’s dress. Well, good news: now there’s the inevitable Twitter feed, JLosNipple. The first tweet? DID YOU SEE ME? (We’re still not sure.)

We wish this Twitter feed all the best in its future endeavors, and that it might one day best tonight’s other new feed, Angiesrightleg (devoted to Angelina Jolie’s leg, of course).

UPDATE: Jennifer Lopez’s stylist, Mariel Haenn, has given EW a statement  addressing the alleged slippage: “The Oscar dress was custom made for Jennifer by designer Zuhair Murad. The dress fit perfectly to her every inch. There were cups built in and there’s no chance that there were any how do you say? ‘slips.’ While the dress did give the illusion of sheer-ness, jokes on everyone who wishes they saw something! If you thought that dress was hot wait until you see what’s next.” READ FULL STORY

Kathy Ireland is world's wealthiest supermodel-entrepreneur

Martha Stewart probably doesn’t think this is a Good Thing.

According to Forbes, model Kathy Ireland — who appeared on three Sports Illustrated covers and in 13 consecutive swimsuit issues during the 1980s and ’90s — is worth an estimated $300 to $350 million via her product marketing company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide, and CelebrityNetWorth.com now lists her as the world’s richest supermodel-entrepreneur.

Nicki Minaj goes downright cyan in 'Vogue'

When people say, “Oh, Person A totally looks like Person B and Person C!” it’s usually a vague reference that’s only slightly on par with reality. But I think I speak the absolute truth when I assert that in Nicki Minaj’s new Vogue photo shoot, the “Roman Holiday” singer has borrowed liberally from the Captain Planet-meets-Jessica Rabbit-meets-Effie from Hunger Games stylebook.

Minaj went full Smurf for the Vogue feature, in which she revealed that “a huge part of me wanted to be a lawyer! I would do a really good job as a prosecutor.”

She who waxed Cookie Monster also cleared up other misconceptions, confirming that her wacky ensembles are “costumes, not outfits,” and that she sometimes imagines herself cooking dinner in a bikini and high heels.

PopWatchers, does anything involving Nicki Minaj and a Crayola color palate surprise you anymore? How about that Periwinkle hair and Jazzberry Jam outfit? And do you dig her chic Avatar-meets-JonBenét panache? Let me know if I left out any azure references.

'RuPaul's Drag Race' week 4 query: How much are you loving Latrice Royale?

Sharon Needles has been dominating RuPaul’s Drag Race in its first three episodes this season, and of course, there are other strong contestants, like Willam and Phi Phi O’Hara and some of the other sundry queens. But last night on the show’s new episode, “Women Behind Bars,” saw a star who was burning somewhat quietly really brighten up: Latrice Royale.

I’ve loved the big gal since the show opened — and I’ve been rooting for her — but she really turned it on last night in the main challenge, which found the ladies acting out a scene from the fake sitcom Hot in Tuckahoe. As Ru described at the top of the challenge, Tuckahoe was about “four best squirrel friends who keep getting arrested and sent to jail.” (The show looked cray-cray, but also like something I would watch… and enjoy.) Considering her prison past, Latrice was sure she was a perfect fit for the sitcom. “As soon as I saw that there was a prison guard,” Latrice said, “I knew that was the role for me.” And Latrice delivered, giving the camera such a load of facial expressions that the editors cut various shots of her lip-pursing into her group’s comedy scene. “Honey, you could do that for half an hour,” Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick told Latrice, of her perfect pursing, “and they would laugh.” She was successful largely because she just went for it and performed over the top, which is what works in television sitcoms. (To be fair, Dida, Willam, and Phi Phi did well, too — they all employed a similar balls-to-the-wall approach.)


Bart Simpson makes his fashion week debut

Who knew he had it in him? After more than two decades of wearing the same red t-shirt and blue shorts, Bart Simpson is going high fashion.

Designer Jeremy Scott, whose previous pop culture collections include those inspired by The Flinstones and Mickey Mouse, unveiled an entire line devoted to The Simpsons character during New York Fashion week earlier today.

The looks — there were five of them — consisted primarily of sweaters emblazoned with Simpson’s iconic image (pictured), some of which were paired with sequined pants or kilts. READ FULL STORY

Gary Oldman’s ‘Tinker Tailor’ glasses are up for auction. What movie character’s famous frames would you purchase?

Tinker, tailor, sold! Well, not yet. The eyeglasses worn by Gary Oldman in his Oscar-nominated performance from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy have been donated for a charity auction through CharityBuzz, which will run from now through Feb. 27.

The chunky black frames, which the auction estimates are worth $500, were a hotly discussed set of sartorial specs. According to a press release, “Mr. Oldman conferred with director Tomas Alfredson and costume designer Jacqueline Durran over just which would be the right pair of glasses for [Oldman’s character George] Smiley to wear throughout.”

Personally, they remind me of the Old Navy lady more than anything — but to each his own oculars, I say. I’d opt instead for some other well-known face-windows: Harry Potter’s signature rims; Atticus Finch’s scholarly lenses; Clark Kent’s “I’m wearing these ironically” hipster blinkers; and dare I even add Dame Edna’s monstrous pince-nez ridiculata?

SI Swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton on Letterman: How'd she do? -- VIDEO

As if she hasn’t been busy enough, Kate Upton — the 19-year-old model who yesterday was announced as the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl — returned to The Late Show With David Letterman last night (where her title as swimsuit icon was first announced on Monday) to talk about her magazine cover, her acting career (she’ll appear in the upcoming The Three Stooges), and her supermodel shelf life.

Check out her appearance, which is filled with equal parts breathy laughing and looking hot, below: READ FULL STORY

On the scene at New York Fashion Week: Matt Damon accompanies wife to Naeem Khan show; raises the Valentine's Day bar

Guys, you may as well give up right now.

While some love-sick sweethearts are planning to woo their significant others with chocolates and roses for Valentine’s Day, Matt Damon did something a little more unusual. He accompanied his wife, Luciana Barroso, to the Naeem Khan fashion show at Lincoln Center today.

The couple, who were literally swarmed by surprised photographers as soon as they took their seats, were holding hands and being generally adorable throughout the entire presentation. And to Damon’s credit, he seemed genuinely focused on the show, which was rumored to be his first (you know, assuming you don’t count the L.A.M.B-Damon impostor debacle of 2011). READ FULL STORY

Kate Upton talks: Her first day as an SI Swimsuit icon

Now that I have your attention. Hey! Eyes down here, buddy!

Yesterday in New York, Kate Upton was announced as the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl, and the last 24 hours have been a whirlwind for the statuesque 19-year-old beauty. The youngest Swimsuit cover model in nearly 30 years (Paulina Porizkova was only 18 when she graced the cover back in 1984) started her day on the Today show and she’ll visit David Letterman, where her cover was first unveiled yesterday, tonight. Upton took a quick break to chat with Entertainment Weekly about her now-famous cover photo and her role in the upcoming Three Stooges film.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations. It must be an exciting day for you.
KATE UPTON: It’s been crazy. I’m so happy to be on the cover. I love the photo. I couldn’t be more ecstatic. READ FULL STORY
