10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

From Marilyn Monroe to Brigitte Bardot, all of our favourite stars have walked down the red carpet in Cannes at some point or another. So, we’re counting down 10 of this years hits and misses in the fashion department including models, actresses and directors alike.

RELATED: Best Directors Guild Awards Dresses

HIT: Sara Sampaio

Model Sara Sampaio hit the red carpet for the premiere of Inside Out in this stunning black ensemble which features a cut-out portion at the top. A simple white gold bracelet finished off the outfit, with long, teardrop earrings.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

MISS: Eva Longoria

Actress Eva Longoria was at the premiere of Inside Out in a silky dress featuring lace panel cut-outs. The style and colour looks a bit dated if you ask us! Although her hair and makeup looked amazing.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

HIT: Poppy Delevingne

Model and socialite Poppy Delevingne stunned the crowds in a maxi dress by Valentino for the premiere of Carol. The emerald green colour matched perfectly with white diamonds and a relaxed up-do.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

MISS: Natalie Portman

Captured at the photocall for her new film A Tale of Love and Darkness, Natalie Portman wore an asymmetric gown by Chanel. It might be appropriate for the warmer weather, but we just don’t think the style is too flattering.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film FestivalHIT: Salma Hayek

Actress Salma Hayek brought back some colour to the red carpet at the premiere of Rocco and His Brothers. We just love how this look is paired with a soft pink lip and tousled locks.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film FestivalMISS: Lindsay Ellingson

This might have been an amazing dress, but unfortunately there is way too much texture going on in Lindsay Ellingson’s ensemble. But, hair and makeup looks sexy and sultry – win!

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

HIT: Rooney Mara

Rarely one to make a fashion faux pas, Rooney Mara chose a stunning cream dress for the premiere of Carol at this years 68th annual event. The colour is perfect for her skin tone and is super flattering with her hair and makeup.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

MISS: Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda walked the red carpet at the premiere of The Sea of Trees in a cobalt blue, floor length gown. While we adore the colour on Jane, the style seems a little out-dated.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

HIT: Diane Kruger

Actress Diane Kruger looked right at home on the red carpet, where she was spotted at the premiere of The Sea of Trees. Not only is this speckled gown an amazing tone, the style itself is perfect for summer!

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

MISS: Sienna Miller

While we usually love everything Sienna Miller wears on the red carpet, this was just not one of them. The colour-blocking dress had too much going on at the front, not to mention that it photographed sheer – and looked like a kite.

Casual Celebrity Style

We’re used to seeing celebrities in red carpet dresses, but their off-duty looks are just as inspiring for celebrity style. Here’s how to get five perfect summer outfits for less.

Maxi dress with denim jacket
Sarah Michelle Gellar rocked one of summer’s favourite celebrity style looks, pairing a floral maxi dress with a denim jacket. This is a great look for festivals and summer picnics – simply accessories with a long necklace and pretty leather sandals.
Get the look for less: The 1&20 Blackbirds Floral Maxi Dress is a relaxed fit maxi dress that takes us back to our 90’s grunge days, but with a thoroughly modern edge.


Tartan shirt with maxi dress
Jessica Alba was spotted wearing a casual grey maxi skirt paired with a plain white tee and a tartan button-up for a comfortable look that is both casual and cool. She completed the outfit with a studded cross-body purse.
Get the look for less: The Madalyn Double Split Maxi Skirt is similar in style and is a comfortable trend for spring and autumn. Wear it with a t-shirt or singlet for day, and cover up with a blazer at night. 


Black and white striped dress
Colour blocking with bold prints is one of the latest ways to celebrate the season with a dress that pops and stands out in a crowd. Emma Watson’s striped dress doesn’t need accessories – just pair with classic black ballerinas and you’re ready for a lazy brunch.
Get the look for less: The Motel Suki Stripe Dress is a great everyday dress – pair it with a colourful belt for a pop of colour.


Printed drawstring pants with a white singlet
Gwen Stefani is the queen of fashion and a celebrity style inspiration thanks to her unique taste and the risks she takes with her wardrobe. Even on a casual day with her boys, wearing printed drawstring pants and a plain white singlet, she managed to look effortlessly chic. Lightweight printed pants are a summer holiday must-have, just slip on and team with your favourite t-shirt and flip flops.
Get the look for less: Suboo Leopard Print Pants are universally-flattering. Replace your sandals for heels for an easy day-to-night look.


Red shorts with black blazer
Looking for the perfect Saturday afternoon outfit for catching up with friends? Rachel Bilson’s laid-back style shows she isn’t trying too hard, but still looks polished. Vibrant shorts are a great pop of colour, but stop short of looking too clown like when they’re toned down by a classic white t-shirt and well-cut black blazer.  Get the look for less: ASOS Culotte Shorts in Geo Floral Print come in a fun print and are easy to pack for summer holidays.

Best Producers Guild Awards Red Carpet Dresses

Plenty of amazing red carpet dresses at the 25th Producers Guild Awards in LA, from Lupita Nyong’o to Claire Danes.

And congrats to 12 Years a Slave and Gravity who both won best film, a first ever tie!


Helen Mirren has the best celebrity style of the night in her glittering Elie Saab gown.


We’re kind of obsessed with how gorgeous Gillian Anderson is. The elegant grey lace dress is one thing, but just look at that hair and makeup!


Lupita Nyong’o is amazing as always in her salmon-hued Stella McMartney dress and shoes.


Claire Danes is adorable in a chic Dior dress and gold Christian Louboutin heels.


We couldn’t help but include this photo of 12 Years a Slave stars  Brad Pitt and Chiwetel Ejiofor, because, hey, this is how all men should rock the red carpet. And hello, Brad Pitt’s new hair cut? Only Brad could get away with it!

The Best SAG Awards Red Carpet Dresses

So much celebrity fashion inspiration at the SAG Awards 2014. Sure, American Hustle may have won big, but the best red carpet dresses were the real winners of the night.


Lupita Nyong’o continues her fashion winning streak in electric blue Gucci.


Jennifer Lawrence didn’t just blow us away in this glimmering Dior column dress, but she also coined the term “armpit vaginas”.


Isla Fisher is the epitome of old Hollywood style in her stunning Oscar de la Renta and bombshell hair.


Love that Kerry Washington wore a Prada skirt and crop top showing off her pregnant belly.


Claire Danes went for dark and sexy in this mesh and holographic sequin Vionnet dress.


Mindy Kaling is so elegant in this sexy navy David Meister gown. Love the gold accessories.


Most of us could not get away with pairing a pale pink silk gown (here, by Givenchy) against pale skin. Except we’re not Cate Blanchett, and she can get away with pretty much anything.


Oprah looks stunning in a off-the-shoulder Badgley Mischka dress with broach detail (and wasn’t she fantastic in The Butler?).

Best Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Dresses

Another day, another awards show, but who cares when there are so many gorgeous red carpet dresses? We break down our favourite celebrity style at today’s 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.


Love Lupita Nyong’o versatile style so much. From prints to this elegantly minimal Calvin Klein Collection gown and clutch, Lupita is our favourite celebrity fashion star right now.



Cate Blanchett is beautiful is darkest green Lanvin cinched together with a wide black belt.


The belt is a little unnecessary, but Sandra Bullock looks gorgeous in the wine red ruffled Lanvin dress.


It’s nice to see Camila Alves out of her usual red carpet black. She’s simply stunning in a drapey red Paule Ka dress with strappy Oscar Tiye heels.


Jessica Chastain glows in a Nina Ricci dress is such an unusual yet beautiful shade of mint green.


What a pretty shade of hot pink on Amy Adams’ Roland Mouret dress, with contrasting black detailing.

Worst Golden Globes Red Carpet Dresses

So many amazing red carpet dresses at the Golden Globes 2014…and yet, so many shockers, and surprisingly, from some of our favourite celebrities. Let’s take a look at some of the fashion disasters…


What just happened? Who styled this? You’ve got the start of a business-casual, boyfriend shirt-inspired outfit by Dolce & Gabbana. Then, her stylist added a feminine sparkly diamante belt, which does nothing to accentuate her waist. Finally, a 60’s beehive to complete the discombobulated look.


Zoe Saldana is one of the hottest actresses right now, so I guess she was going for edgy when she chose to wear this Prabal Gurung 80’s prom dress. She’s not the only one who had a Prabal Gurung disaster tonight…


Sandra Bullock has been scoring a lot of fashion wins lately, so it’s sad she chose this Prabal Gurung satin mullet dress. The colour combination doesn’t work, and the low cut doesn’t flatter either. And those pointy boobs remind us of Anne Hathaway’s 2014 pink Oscars dress. Not good.


Mila Kunis has worn some of the prettiest red carpet dresses, yet even she doesn’t love this Liberace-inspired look.


Uma Thurman seems to have lost her red carpet mojo. The black top and skirt don’t match, instead creating a jarring contrast. She looks severe and unsexy, which is unheard of for Uma.


We wanted to love anything that Jennifer Lawrence chose to wear to the Golden Globes. And from the thighs up, we get it. It’s Dior, it’s high fashion, but that white tulle skirt just looks cheap, like the Spotlight end of year offcuts. Also not a fan of the mismatched jewellery.


We can’t wait for season 2 of House of Cards, but Kate Mara’s Golden Globes J Mendel gown is hurting our eyes tonight. The bleached locks, the in-your-face boobs, the weird drape…so many better choices for this pretty young thing.


Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss sadly looks like she just woke up an hour before the Golden Globes. Her hair looks messy and her handkerchief tail J Mendel dress doesn’t flatter.


Hayden Panettiere debuted a new short haircut, sleeking it back – but it just looks like covering up a bad hair day. And we don’t like the dress either – remember when above-knee slits were big in the early 90’s? Yep, this looks feels just as outdated.


We’ve seen Emma Thompson rock the pre-Golden Globes parties in style, but sadly, she showed up wearing a rock-hard gold bodice that looks like it belongs on the set of 300, finished in a boring black skirt.

This Week’s Best Celebrity Red Carpet Dresses

Award season is definitely here with some serious red carpet dresses seen on our favourite celebrities this week, from Jessica Alba glowing in white to Jessica Chastain and Sandra Bullock sparkling in bright colours. It might be snowing in the U.S. but these celebrity dresses are giving us plenty of inspiration for summer!


Girls’ star Allison Williams beamed in a pale blue satin Dior mini dress at the Girls Season 3 premiere in New York earlier this week. Are you looking forward to the new season?


Jessica Alba looking as adorable as ever in a white Jason Wu zip-up dress with Casadei heels at the People’s Choice Awards last night.


And proving it’ll be all white on the night, Jessica Hudson rocked her unbelievable body in another stunning white dress paired with Manolo Blahnik heels, picking up the Favourite Humanitarian Award.


12 Years a Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o glowed in shimmery Elie Saab at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala (you have to see this movie!).


Also at the Festival, Julia Roberts in a carefree Gucci leopard print swing dress.


Sandra Bullock brightened up the Festival in a vibrant pink and orange Alex Perry dress with lace detail, offset with nude Brian Atwood heels.


Camila Alves outshone hubbie Matthew McConaughey in her all-out sexy black Mikael D gown with thigh high split.


At the National Board Of Review Gala, Jessica Chastain went for a gorgeous shade of yellow in her pretty Oscar de la Renta dress, contrasted beautifully with pointy blue satin heels.


And proving French women will always look chic, Blue is the Warmest Colour actress Lea Seydoux donned jewel-toned Prada and a berry pout.

The Week’s Best Celebrity Fashion

Lace is one of the hottest celebrity fashion trends this week, while monochrome continues to be the season’s biggest colour statement.


Camila Alves stunned with her winning red carpet fashion sense at the New York premiere of hubbie Matthew McConaughey’s new movie, The Wolf Of Wall Street. The sexy red lace dress is by Armani Prive, paired beautifully with strappy nude Brian Atwood heels.


There are never enough good things to say about Helen Mirren, as chic as ever in a black lace dress with blood-red lips at the American Cinematheque Award Show.


Anna Kendrick was a golden goddess in a strapless J. Mendel gown at TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2013 party.


Lea Michele looked gorgeous is a black cutaway Three Floor dress when she hosted an evening of shopping at the Switch Boutique in LA to benefit Chrysalis, which helps the poor and homeless find jobs.


Last week we told you monochrome is one of the biggest celebrity fashion trends right now, and it continues to dominate as seen on Zoe Saldana’s chic outfit at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards Nominations.

Rita Ora vamped it up in Vivienne Westwood.

Oscars Best Dressed

It’s fashion’s night of nights and this year’s Oscars red carpet is one of the best ever, with spectacular looks from Hollywood favourites Michelle Williams and Milla Jovovich to our very own Rose Byrne.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Could these two look any more glam? The last celebs to hit the red carpet, they really saved the best for last. Classic black, thigh high split and red lips, no wonder Brad looks like the cat that ate the canary.

Rose Byrne

Shimmering black Vivienne Westwood paired with that fringe and blunt bob. So sexy.

Milla Jovovich

Gorgeous white one-shoulder Elie Saab is reminiscent of old Hollywood.

Rooney Mara

Love this edgy look complete with blood red lips and blunt fringe.

Michelle Williams

Cute as a button, Michelle’s red gown goes beautifully with the pixie do, red lips and diamond necklace.

Natalie Portman

Isn’t Natalie lovely with her husband fiancé Benjamin? Especially in vintage Christian Dior, circa 1954.

Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana might host the red carpet arrivals, but she belongs on this year’s best dressed list. An ode to 1920’s glamour.

Stacey Kiebler

Even if George Clooney doesn’t win an Oscar for The Descendants, he’ll take home an Oscar in the form of his golden statuesque girlfriend Stacey.

Jessica Chastain

It’s not the most original of red carpet looks, but The Help’s Jessica Chastain pulls off this ornate brocade gown with flair.

Golden Globes After-Party Best + Worst Dressed

The fashion highs and lows continued at the Golden Globes after-parties – with one Aussie celeb rebounding from her awards’ disaster, while other celebs continued to plummet in the style stakes.

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom

Love MIranda’s shimmery calf-length Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Elle Macpherson

We weren’t a fan of her Golden Globes bridezilla gown, yet Elle simply glowed at the after-party in a glittering gold fishtail dress.

Jessica Alba

One of our best dressed favourites keeps it up in this simple yet sparkly strapless dress.

Rachel Zoe

A whimsical, Heidi-esque dress is ruined by Rachel’s angry zombie stare. Even Victoria Beckham is smiling these days.

Kim Kardashian

Even Ricky Gervais’ opening gag poking fun at her and her 72-day marriage couldn’t stop Kim showing up to the after-party, over-dressed in serious black.

Erin Wasson

Oh, brother. Erin Wasson’s stick-thin frame puts us off our dinner in this barely there dress (if you can call it a dress?)

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay’s pale skin clashes in this nude apricot dress gown thing.

Tim Gunn’s 10 Wardrobe Must-Haves For 2012

Don’t you just adore Tim Gunn? The style guru and co-host of Project Runway is about to host his own show, The Revolution on America’s ABC, and has declared these 10 essential pieces as the wardrobe must-haves for 2012.

1. Basic Black Dress

“We all know that you can dress it up to take it out, that’s its intention,” says Gunn, “but you can also pair an item like this with a cardigan for work. So it’s an easy item to transition.”

2. Day Dress

“This is a dress that you’re probably going to wear to work. It is never intended to be a dress that you would wear to a cocktail party alternative.”

3. Classic White Shirt

“This should be in every woman’s dressing vocabulary. Pair it with jeans, a skirt or dress pants for an easy, polished outfit.”

4. Classic Blazer

“This is the easiest way in the world to dress up a T-shirt and a pair of jeans and take them almost anywhere.”

5. Dress Pants

6. Trench Coat

“It’s my coat of choice because you can wear it to the grocery store, you can take it to the opera.”

7. Good Pair of Jeans

“For me, the style of choice is one that falls straight from the widest part of your hip and that is in a dark wash. No distressing!”

8. Skirt

9. Cashmere Sweater

“Cashmere will not pill, so this will be very, very serviceable in your wardrobe. You’ll get a lot of wear out of it,” Gunn says.

10. Tracksuit Alternative

“This is an item that’s easy to throw on, that allows you to look sophisticated and polished and is an alternative to the sweatsuit,” Gunn says. “Depending on your taste and lifestyle, this can take on many different forms.”

What do you think of Tim Gunn’s essentials list?

Best And Worst Dressed At The Met Gala Ball

Best And Worst Dressed At The Met Gala Ball

Serena Williams

I love Serena Williams but this feathered strapless gown by Oscar de la Renta with fascinator is simply awful!


Marchesa might be one of the hottest evening designers at the moment but this fishtail gown makes Fergie look like a scary bridezilla – run!

Christina Hendricks

She has such a pretty face and an incredible body, but the lady simply has no style. First, that hideous Oscars dress, now this muddy organza gown by Carolina Herrera. Fire her stylist!

Alicia Keys

Poor Alicia looks like an armadillo – not the best choice for such a high-fashion crowd.

Ashley Green

Now this is flawless evening wear. Ashley’s ethereal Donna Karan gown is the epitome of red carpet glamour.

Chanel Iman

Model Chanel is a modern day Audrey Hepburn in this adorable white Dolce & Gabbana lace shift.

Penelope Cruz

Absolutely stunning, Penelope always looks great in black and this Oscar de la Renta is perfect with her Latin looks.

Zoë Saldana

Not many could pull off a minimalist yellow Calvin Klein dress but Zoe was made for outfits like this.

Gisele Bündchen

Talk about va-va-voom! Gisele fills out this show-stopping fire engine red Alexander McQueen dress like no other.

Steal Their Style

Celebrity Steal Their Style

We’ve tracked down 5 of the latest celeb looks and show you how to steal their style on a budget.

Kirsten Dunst’s check shirt

The celeb-fave check skirt is just so versatile. Pair with leggings and ballet flats for day or tuck into denim shorts with a chunky leather belt for a breezy weekend – or when taking the cat to the vet.

Witchery Oversize Tab Shirt, $39.95 (was $129.95). Buy online at witchery.com.au.

Drew Barrymore’s ethnic top

Drew has such a happy, hippy style which gives me serious wardrobe envy. While I couldn’t find anything as colourful as hers on a budget, I love the embroidered look of this simple black and white top which would be great with black jeans or cargos.

Country Road Print Crop Tank, $39.95. Buy online at countryroad.com.au.

Diane Kruger’s cargo shorts

Diane brought casual chic to a premiere late last year, matching neutral cargo shorts with a knitted white tank. Whether you wear these shorts at night with heels like Diane or keep it tame with flip flops and your fave tshirt, these are a fantastic pair of shorts.

Trenery Utility Short, $39.95. Buy online at trenery.com.au.

Jessica Simpson’s pink shift

Hot pink is this season’s hottest colour, so show off your summer tan in this pretty ruffle dress. Lovely for weddings or evenings out, if you’re not brave enough to wear such a striking colour never fear, it also comes in blue and black.

Emerge Ruffle Neck Dress, $29. Buy online at ezybuy.com.au.

Kim Kardashian’s black trench coat

It’s not often I’d look twice at Kim Kardashian but I have to admit this all black outfit is very stylish. A black trench is so adaptable – pair it with skinny jeans and knee high boots like Kim or throw over jeans and a tshirt for in-between weather. Very sexy.

Blue Illusion black trench, $199. Visit blueillusion.com.au.

Wedding Dress Inspiration From The Red Carpet

Wedding Dress Inspiration From The Red Carpet

Lea Michelle

It’s classic, it’s elegant: Lea’s satin ivory dress by Jose Daran finishes in a slight fishtail and would suit many body shapes. Pearl studs and a slick of red lipstick completes the look.

Gemma Atherton

Some might find this Gucci column dress too simple, but it’s all in the details. A gentle gathering at the waist adds interest and the drape in the skirt makes legs go forever. Take a cue from Bond girl Gemma and tie your hair back without fuss, perfect for a beach wedding.

Eva Longoria

This is a red carpet – and show-stopping wedding dress – at its best. Trust Eva to wow in this frou-frou gown with billowing train. Top with a golden tan and go minimal on the jewellery, after all the dress, and your smile, will do the talking.

Taylor Swift

If your prefer your inspiration from the 1920’s and 30’s then sit up and pay attention to Taylor’s Ralph Lauren dress. It’s flapper without being a novelty dress. Utterly romantic, especially if paired with a soft waves and red lips.

Emma Watson

No one really expected Hermione, I mean, Emma, to step out looking so glam at the CFDA Awards in NY this year. But this one-shoulder Burberry gown with daring front split took everyone’s breath away, and will do the same at your wedding. Punk details like chunky rings and mismatched bracelets take the romance down a notch so you can match this look to your personality.

Marion Cotillard

Like Gemma’s, this is a fairly minimal strapless dress, this time by Christian Dior, but here’s another way to do it. Sequins and studs sparkle at the bust, then simply layer long necklaces to vamp up the look. Dark eyes and nails are a daring choice but if you can pull it off go for it!

Ashley Greene

Who says you need to follow tradition and wear a long gown? Ashley keeps it fresh with a just-below-the-knee shift, while nude peep toe heels give her length.


The Grecian look has always been popular for the walk down the aisle and Fergie enjoyed it walking down the red carpet at the premiere of the musical Nine. Love the twisted gold belt – your accessorises don’t have to come from jewellery alone – and if you’ve got long locks consider wearing them down and free-flowing.

Which red carpet look is your favourite for a wedding, or do you prefer more traditional bridal gown?

“I made a dress for Lady Gaga”

Fashion designer Justine Davis created a one-of-a-kind dress for style queen Lady Gaga. here’s her story.

Best known for her unique twist on cocktail dresses Justine Davis began her fashion education in Perth Western Australia. As a multi-award winning student she honed her style in London amidst its’ vibrant designers. Upon returning to Sydney to launch her label, the designer sparked interest locally and abroad while being discovered at Australian Fashion Week soon after.

The brand has been showcased in Shanghai, as part of Singapore Fashion Festival and featured at Miami Fashion Week. As a result Justine has established a market place across Australia, Saudi Arabia, Miami, Atlanta, Shanghai, and Dubai.

Such is the success of the label; Justine Davis created a custom-made ‘Lady Gaga’ dress.

Lady Gaga is fantastic for fashion and music. I love the way she pushes boundaries and ignites our imaginations,” says Justine. “She is certainly a unique force with her own creative voice.”

“Designing a dress for Gaga came about through a friend who was managing her tour out here and the opportunity presented itself. I jumped at it as she is a brilliant muse for a designer. Her style is very entertaining in every sense of the word as well as bold, fun and full of modern contradiction, so I wanted the dress to reflect all of these.”

“The Lady Gaga dress was actually adapted from a Spring/Summer collection style. I made it a lot shorter than the picture on the model so it made it appear a lot more sci-fi. It was when she was going through her stage of wearing white space looking motorcycle helmets in the street with her usual ‘underwear as pants’ statement. When the dress is a lot shorter, you can see the layers of tulle underneath with a silver binding around the edge. To give it a reflective and bold edge, I molded strips of a silver metal-based fibre and appliquéd a luxurious gold, bronze and silver sequin silk georgette fabric.”

“The final product was lots of fun to create and even better to hear she loved it. I’m looking forward to the next opportunity to dress her in Australia.”

Uma’s ugliest dress
According to Uma Thurman, the Kill Bill star says she deliberately set out to capture the worst-dressed award at this year’s Oscars ceremony because she didn’t want to look like all the other actresses. She told The Hollywood Reporter that she chose her billowing Christian Lacroix dress because she knew she’d be criticised for it. She said: “The dress didn’t do that thing that people are in the mood for, which is what most people had. Showing her individual, eccentric style that she is renowned for she said “Everyone looked the same. Everyone had it down to such a perfect tee in their spaghetti-strapped, sequined or chiffon, body-hugging, gym-hour promoting things. You get bored. ?That’s when you have to say, ‘I will be worst dressed. I’m glad it was me they panned. I think I deserve it, and I can take it. I need a good panning every so often or I wouldn’t really recognise my life.” Well said Uma!

I’m skinny, but even I couldn’t fit into some of the clothes there. There are some ridiculously skinny people in LA.” Another actress with her feet firmly planted on the ground!

Just friends??
Two-timing Nicole?
Is Nicole Richie proving to be just as bad as best friend Paris Hilton? The Simple Life star and daughter of Lionel Richie has recently been seen with not one, but two different bachelors. Her first beau is Adam Goldstein who she has reportedly been dating for months. Goldstein is well known on the LA dance circuit as DJ A.M. However, Nicole has also been seen with Matthew Felker, better known for kissing Britney Spears in her video Toxic. Nicole and Adam were seen getting rather steamy in an LA club. “It looked like she was going to have sex right there!” said a guest at the club. “People were really shocked and still talking about it the next day.” But a few days later, Nicole and Matthew were seen together. And to top it all off, they magnified their guilt by dodging paparazzi as they tried to leave the club. A source close to Matthew told Star that they’re not dating and that Matthew is more “like a big brother to Nicole.” Yeah?
