The cure for awkward conversations…
Gwyneth Paltrow Named “Best Dressed Woman” of 2012
People magazine named Gwyneth Paltrow the most stylish woman of 2012 this week. The actress beat out other style icons like Kate Middleton, the Olsen twins, and Michelle Obama. Paltrow is pictured below wearing a white caped dress at the Oscars in February. Many fashion critics called it the best outfit of the event.
Paltrow’s stylist, Elizabeth Saltzman, told People, “She has a uniform: It’s simple, not overdone. She goes, ‘I’m happy — and that matters more.’ That’s what sets her apart from the rest.”
Diane Kruger came in second, Kate Middleton came in third, and Emma Stone placed fourth.
The X-Factor returned to the airwaves this week, and one audition has already gone viral. And no, we’re not talking about the guy who slammed Demi Lovato for using auto-tune.
On the Wednesday night premiere, 19-year-old Jillian Jensen even made Simon Cowell, a feat once though impossible. The teenage hopeful talked about her history of bullying before singing a soulful version of Jessie J’s Who You Are.
Watch her emotional audition:
Meet Edward Duke Rancic!
“It’s amazing how maternal instincts have taken over, and Giuliana’s just super mom,” Bill told the magazine.
And if you’re wondering about the origins of Edward’s name, Giuliana explained their choice.
“Edward is Bill’s late dad’s name and my dad’s name…It was a way to honor them. And Duke means leader.”
America Has A New President…Impersonator
While Mitt Romney and Barack Obama campaign around the country, another presidential race was quietly settled behind the scenes.
Saturday Night Live has kept Fred Armisen around for the last four years just so he can do his Obama impersonation. However, producer Lorne Michaels has finally passed the torch to a younger cast member.
SNL cast member Jay Pharoah has been testing out his Barack impression all summer, and even though it still needs some work, Michaels thinks he’s ready to sit in the the fake Oval Office.
What do you think of his Obama impression?
Everyone hates it when someone talks or uses their cell phone during a movie, but three theaters in the UK have taken drastic action to silence inconsiderate viewers. They’ve hired “ninjas” to dress in black bodysuits and patrol the theater during movies. Even stranger, the shushers are volunteers.
Here’s how one surprised patron described the shushing: “I normally hate noisy people in cinemas, but I got a call from my friend just as the movie started and thought I could get away with taking it. The last thing I expected was two completely blacked-out people suddenly appearing by our seats and give me and my mates a warning to shut up. It was actually pretty terrifying at first, but then I realised it was a bit of a laugh and a great way to make it clear what I was doing was having an impact on those around me. It certainly made me hang up and shut up for the rest of the film.”
The “ninjas” have become so popular that other UK theaters have followed suit.
Wait For It…
