Rachel McAdams was one of the stars who visited Variety's studio at Holt Renfrew during the Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday. She wore a sexy black and tan Lanvin dress for the event, which also brought out Eli Roth, Jason Bateman, and Paula Patton. Rachel's been in Canada promoting multiple projects, and she hit the red carpet for the premiere of Passion in a sexy black look last night. Rachel's boyfriend, Michael Sheen, joined her, though the duo didn't pose for photos together. He was also there to support Rachel at the debut of To the Wonder earlier this week. We're watching all the celebrities at TIFF, so make sure to check back until the festival wraps up on Sunday.
Canadian fans gave Rachel McAdams a warm welcome at Monday night's To the Wonder TIFF premiere. She stepped out in a lovely green gown and was joined on the carpet by co-star Olga Kurylenko, also wearing a similar emerald hue. Olga and Rachel were on hand representing the ensemble cast that also includes Ben Affleck and Javier Bardem. Rachel's boyfriend, Michael Sheen, also landed a part in the film; however, director Terrence Malick cut out his role in addition to Rachel Weisz's and Amanda Peet's. This isn't the last premiere of the week for Rachel; her dramatic thriller Passion is also screening throughout the week at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.
For celebrities, sitting front row at Fashion Week is pretty much a given — but what happens when you find out that you're sitting side by side with the Anna Wintour? The Vogue editrix is famous for her self-assured, slightly intimidating, poker-faced Fashion Week presence, and earning a seat next to her could easily be a dream come true for most fashion-loving celebs. It also sets in motion a longtime industry superstition: does earning a coveted spot next to Anna also nab you a Vogue cover? Just in time for the start of New York Fashion Week, we're taking a look back at some of the stars that have been seated next to Anna Wintour during the shows — and taking a tally of whether or not they've graced the glossy cover of Vogue. Click through to start keeping score.
The Best Kiss Award is one of the most anticipated of the show, and the nominees are always under pressure to provide the audience with a replay of their magical on-screen moment. The MTV Awards are on Monday night an in preparation for the show, we'd like to know who you think will take out the trophy for Best Kiss. There's Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1; Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling for Crazy, Stupid, Love; Emma Watson and Rupert Grint for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2; Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson for The Hunger Games; and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum for The Vow. So, who will it be?
One of the hottest hair trends for the new season is fringes. We spied them on the international runways at shows such as Marni and Versace and we're seeing them on red carpets all over the world thanks to stars such as Rose Byrne, Jessica Biel, Liv Tyler and Rachel McAdams being early adopters of the trend. The look is thick, block fullness. These aren't wispy fringes. They're statement-making and they're bound to turn heads. Take a closer look at the trend now.
It's no accident that The Vow's release date coincides almost perfectly with Valentine's Day. The film promises the kind of epic love story that many of us, like it or not, are more amenable to getting swept up in at this time of year: a man tries to make his wife fall in love with him again after a horrific accident leaves her with no memory of the last four years, or of him. Channing Tatum is endearing as Leo and though he has chemistry with Rachel McAdams's Paige, it almost goes to waste due to the film's lack of focus and uneven plot.
For starters, having a stranger for a husband is just the beginning of Paige's problems. Sometime in the four years she's lost, she went from being a preppy law student to a free-spirited artist. Naturally, when she wakes up, she wants an explanation for why she doesn't talk to her family anymore, what happened to her pretty boy fiancé (Scott Speedman), and why her hair is so "weird." It's understandable that she's a little different from who she used to be, but a complete life transformation is a bit hard to swallow — both for Paige, and for the audience.
To see why The Vow may not be the love story you're expecting, just keep reading.
Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams tackle a true story in The Vow, playing a husband and wife trying to rebuild their life after a car accident leaves her with no memory of their relationship. Our US Sugar sisters talked to the onscreen pair at the recent press day for the movie in Beverly Hills. Channing, who is married to fellow actor Jenna Dewan, said being a young husband made him especially connected to the role, and also chatted about his and Rachel's shared tendencies toward romantic fare like The Notebook and Dear John. While the subject of their new movie might be dramatic, they also admitted to some lighter moments on set, and talked about a scene that left Rachel "borderline hallucinogenic." Check out our interview and catch The Vow in cinemas now.
Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams posed together at the LA premiere of their new movie The Vow last night. Rachel showed off a dramatic red lipstick look and wore a strapless Vivienne Westwood paired with nude Christian Louboutin heels. Channing’s wife Jenna Dewan joined him for a few photos, though Rachel’s main man Michael Sheen wasn’t there. Former Packed to the Rafters actress Jessica McNamee, who plays Rachel’s sister in the film, stood out in an orange Gucci frock, while Teresa Palmer stepped out to support her boyfriend Scott Speedman, who stars as the former flame of Rachel’s character. Following the screening, the cast and crew headed to the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for an after party, where guests snacked on a Ralph Lauren-designed wedding cake.
Rachel McAdams is on the promo tour for her new movie The Vow, and she's the second actress in recent weeks to wear an Australian designer while promoting a film.

You beauty!

Rachel McAdams has landed the cover of Glamour magazine's February 2012 issue, sporting a volumised, tousled up 'do and bold red lip. The Notebook star talked about her new film The Vow, how she ties her hair up in buns all over her head to get it dry, as well as the various beauty looks she's tried both on- and off-screen.
On her past hairstyles: I always wanted pink hair. I wanted to do my whole head, but my hairstylist, Robert, was like, "How about we start small?" I absolutely loved it. I still think about doing blue at some point, but I don't like to change my hair before I'm about to do [a film] — you never know what that character's going to be.
Her makeup as a competitive figure skater: I definitely was in the sequinned, bedazzled era. We would put blue eyeshadow up our eyebrows, and glitter all over our faces.
On developing her character's look: Yeah, I love those preliminary conversations about who a character is. You try on wigs, shoes and clothes. It's preferable when it's not about looking pretty. It can get a little dull to just be cute.
