As with all the other countless occasions for which Hollywood takes the opportunity to congratulate itself with lavish award shows, last night's 63rd Primetime Emmys gave celebrities an excellent platform to impress the world with their fancy style. Of course we're semi-interested in who went home with trophies, but what we really care about is who the winners and losers in the fashion department were. So let's get to the good stuff and see the best and worst from last night's Emmy red carpet looks.
[Bianca Kajlich, Ben Stiller, Aziz Ansari, Nick Swardson, Ruben Fleischer, Jesse Eisenberg, Dilshad Vadsaria, Michael Pena photo via] Hollywood was en fuego this week with movie premieres pretty much every night. Unfortunately, this also meant celebrities had even more opportunities than usual to choose the wrong thing to wear and have their fashion mishaps broadcast for all the world to see. And I'm not sure if stylists had the week off or Mercury is in retrograde or what but, man, did they deliver. The fug was brought in copious amounts that we actually had to narrow the bad ones down. Let's put it this way: the best dressed person at any of the premieres this week is an eight-year-old. So without further ado, here are the best and worst dressed of this week's Hollywood movie premieres.
Happy Birthday, Hollywood sign! You were brought into this world on the side of Mount Lee 88 years ago today, making you the second-oldest L.A. landmark behind Hugh Hefner, who's 137 years old.

First, to their trans-Tasman (I looked it up) neighbors, Australia, who apparently have a reputation for taking credit for Kiwi singers and desserts, amongst other things. But now that they've shot a ridiculously successful trilogy of films about some magic Hobbits who are deeply in love with each other, it seems that they're ready to fire a few shots in our direction as well. And they're getting started by aping our most famous landmark. More»
There's more to the Sundance Film Festival than Tao, The Bing Bar and the swag. As a top destination for independent film, the festival turns young actresses into overnight stars. Just look at Carey Mulligan who became a-list and nabbed the most sought after lead in The Great Gatsby after An Education premiered in Park City in 2009. Let's check out this year's breakout actresses of Sundance 2011. More»
Hey you guys, did you know James Franco is better looking, more talented, and more ambitious than the rest of us? Oh you did? Well did you know he's also more spontaneous? Yup, he's just the ultimate! In between giving Oscar-nominated performances, MFA studies, throwing phones, and hosting this year's Oscars, he's also opening a secret new L.A. bar (but we know where it is!) where he'll sing for guests at his super exclusive Oscar "after-after-after-after party."
