Independent films and actors were the stars of the Gotham Awards, which were held in NYC today. Brie Larson cemented her status as one to watch when she won the Best Actress award for her role in Short Term 12, beating out Hollywood favourites such as Cate Blanchett and Scarlett Johansson. Matthew McConaughey's work in Dallas Buyers Club was recognised in the Best Actor category; Michael B. Jordan won the Breakthrough Actor award for his work in Fruitvale Station, and the film Inside Llewyn Davis took home the top honour of Best Feature. The event was also attended by some of our favourite women on TV, including Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler from Parks and Recreation, and Zosia Mamet from Girls.
It was a star-studded night at the Dallas Buyers Club premiere in LA last night. Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto were both flying solo, while Matthew McConaughey brought along his wife, Camila Alves. The film has been picking up steam since it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Even ahead of the film's release date, it has been attracting plenty of buzz for its transformative and brilliant performances. Jared Leto morphs himself into the transgendered business partner of Tom Woodroof, played by McConaughey, and Matthew dropped over 20kgs to play the Texan AIDS patient. Jennifer Garner also joins the film as a doctor. See all the pictures from the premiere event!
Matthew McConaughey suited up in Dolce & Gabbana for the red carpet premiere of Dallas Buyers Club at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday night. He was joined by his wife, Camila Alves, and co-stars Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto on the red carpet before heading into the film's screening. Matthew has been garnering lots of praise for his performance as an AIDS patient in the 1980s drama, and he and Jared have both gotten heaps of attention for their dramatic transformations in the movie. Matthew shed more than 20kg to portray hard-partying Texan Ron Woodroof, while Jared Leto appears in drag to play Ron's trangender business partner, Rayon.
Jennifer Garner, who appears as a doctor in the film, arrived at the big event in a flirty lace Dolce & Gabbana dress and nude heels. She broke from shooting her latest project Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day in LA and touched down in Toronto last week for the festivities.
This week on social media, celebrities who posted snaps from travels included Jennifer Hawkins and Jake Wall, who made their way to the Maldives for the tail-end of their honeymoon, and Hamish Blake and Andy Lee, who got into the wacky style spirit of Tokyo on the Japanese leg of their Asian Gap Year. Kylie and Dannii Minogue also had a sister reunion in NYC. Back home, Lara Bingle celebrated her 26th birthday with famous friends including Natalie Imbruglia, while Lincoln Lewis showed off his Queensland pride at the second State of Origin game.
Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend, Casper Smart, got dressed up in their black-tie finest to attend Saturday's UNESCO Charity Gala in Dusseldorf, Germany. They mingled at the charity event with other celebrities like Eva Herzigova and Jared Leto. Jennifer, clad in Lanvin, accepted an honour with her sister Lynda for their philanthropic work.
J Lo was able to fit the evening out on the town into her busy European touring schedule. She's due to perform in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, this evening, and then will return to Germany, to the town of Oberhausen, for a Halloween show. One date has been particularly significant to J Lo. She and Casper celebrated their one-year anniversary last Thursday, and he sweetly used their nicknames for each other in a loving tweet. Casper wrote, "Happy one year anniversary to the most gorgeous, kind, sweet, funny, beautiful lil' bear in the world." In return, Jennifer tweeted, "Thank you for sharing your beautiful smile with me everyday."
Today we're zoning in on all the fashion action from the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards. Fab Fave Louise Roe played up her bohemian side in a 70s-inspired jumpsuit, Hayden Panettiere worked a printed monochrome Tibi frock and models Bar Refaeli and Irina Shayk both worked custom-designed denim numbers. Kudos to the host of the show Selena Gomez, who donned an embossed tulle Marchesa number for her red pink carpet arrival. Click through to scope the rest of the red carpet lineup.
The MTV Europe Music Awards were a beauty-full affair with host Selena Gomez working a variety of looks Katy Perry going retro and Lady Gaga — who skipped the red carpet — hitting the stage sporting her usual outlandish hair and makeup looks! The guys also came out to play with Justin Bieber supporting his girlfriend and showing of his new hairstyle. See all the action from the awards now!
We told you back in April that Jared Leto would be joining Orlando Bloom as the face of Hugo Boss fragrances — and now his debut commercial, for HUGO Man and HUGO Just Different, is out. It sees Leto controlling the skyline with a flick of the flacon and strutting his stuff in a city bar looking rather dapper. To be honest the commercial doesn't blow us away like some do, but we could happily stare in Jared Leto's eyes all day long. What do you think — are you a fan?
With Paris Fashion Week in full swing, the celebrity sightings have heated up. You never know who to expect and, most importantly, what they'll be wearing. Our latest batch includes Rachel Zoe in a bright blue jumpsuit, Margherita Missoni showing off her signature zigzags and colour, and Gisele Bundchen getting sporty chic — after hitting the runway — at Givenchy's after party. There's more celebrity spotting where that came from, so check out the slideshow to see the rest!
The MTV Video Music Awards always bring out the best (and worst, in Kanye West's history) in people. And while they lack the couture glamour of the Oscars and the Golden Globes, they still pull out all the stops and the stars come a-flocking. They're taking place in the US on Sunday so we'll be bringing you all the action from the red carpet on Monday morning. But before then, let's refresh our memory about last year's ceremony and Lady Gaga's raw meat dress!
