For the celebrities who didn’t attend the 2012 Oscars, the Vanity Fair Oscars viewing party held in Hollywood was the next best place to be, with the likes of Claire Danes, Olivia Wilde, Amy Adams — all decked out in their red carpet attire — watching the awards ceremony take place. We also spotted Michael Douglas with parents Kirk and Anne Douglas, Steve Martin and an array of designer heavyweights including Tom Ford and Carolina Herrera. Click through to see who else walked the celeb-studded VF carpet.
Carey Mulligan we salute you! We first fell in love with the elfin actress in An Education, but it's her out of the box elegance that's kept her in our favourites pile. 2010 really showcased Carey's style, and we saw her in fabulous frock after fabulous frock on the red carpet. Never one to flash the flesh, Carey's signature look is lady like all the way, and her liking for longer hemlines, full skirted frocks and nipped in waists only added fuel to the Mad Men craze.
Rocking stand out looks from Miu Miu, Lanvin, Proenza Schouler, Vionnet, Christopher Kane, Prada and Chanel, Miss Mulligan always manages to inject her own gamine quirk into her high fashion ensembles. It's easy to attribute her stand out style to her cute cropped do, but we think it's more than that. It's the quirky-cute mixed with 1950s polish that sets Carey apart from the pack, best exemplified by the gorgeous Prada gown she wore to this year's Oscars. So with much pleasure we announce the 2010 Best Dressed New Kid On The Block is.....Carey Mulligan!
You know I'm a fan of the charity work that Victoria Beckham does on behalf of all the short-haired ladies worldwide—showing mere mortals how versatile short styles can actually be. And while this look isn't exactly new (in fact it's a dead ringer for her Oscar's hairstyle), it's still worthy of noting for its fabulousness. I do love a bit of a tease when it comes to up 'dos—it saves them looking all dated and harsh; but I'm not a fan of the chav-tastic (Bogan-esque) front strands. Euch. Mrs B has been rocking a smoky eye for quite some time now, so it's no surprise that she showed up to her Moscow store opening with da-dah, a smoky eye, but I'd prefer to see a red lip, wouldn't you? What say you: winner or sinner?
It’s Monday and that means it’s time to check out what’s happening in mag land! It’s still Oscars galore at OK! as the mag takes us inside the awards show.

Another week, another highly entertaining Pop Quiz! Have you been paying attention to this week's hottest goss? Hmmm, we’ll see...
Much has been made of Sam "I'm just a brickie from Perth" Worthington chewing gum while presenting next to Jennifer Lopez but he's got more to worry about than getting slammed by the press. Cosmetic surgeons are now saying that chewing gum is the latest thing to cause wrinkles. US-based cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hema Sundaram believes that “chewing gum promotes muscle over-activity and potentially breaks down support tissue within the skin, contributing to volume loss and perhaps loss of skin elasticity.” Maybe that's Sam's Grand Master Plan, though? Wrinkles + Payless shoes = totally unpretentious guy, no?
Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams filmed a backstage interview for an Oprah special after presenting together at Monday's Oscars. Jake carried Rachel's clutch like a gentleman, as they joked about tripping each other. Jake was apparently even playfully introducing her as "the mother of my child" to friends. The Internet has been buzzing about how cute they would be as a couple just based on a few minutes of airtime. So what do you think, would Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams make the ideal couple or is everyone totally dreaming?
Sam Worthington was the only high profile Aussie attending the Oscars and now he’s copped a bashing for chewing gum while presenting an Academy Award. The Avatar star and Jennifer Lopez took to the stage to present the award for Best Original Score. Jennifer had on a gorgeous Armani Privé gown, while Sam rocked up wearing $20 Payless Shoes and a “kickarse suit.” While Jen was rattling off the nominees, Sam was chomping away like a cow in the paddock and now he's been slammed in the press. But what do you think? Is chewing gum at the Oscars REALLY such a big deal?
