Best Dressed @ The Logies

The news told me that Asher Keddie won the Gold (that’s cool, I enjoy Offspring), but I’m only here for the outfits. Here are a few of the best –

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week sees designers abandon Logies

Thanks to the new Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week schedule, Australian TV stars have been abandoned by their usual Logies designers as they prepare for their various shows. Particularly shocking is the news that red carpet favourite Alex Perry has not designed a single dress, with his spokesman Josh Flinn explaining Perry had to turn down several celebrities due to incredibly bad timing.

Usually held in May, the fashion week shows will instead begin on April 8, and will kick-off with Camilla & Marc, Sydney design siblings who are celebrating their 10 year anniversary. Other favourites include We Are Handsome, Bec & Bridge, Talulah and Vanishing Elephant, who will show throughout the week.

The lack of available designers willing to make custom gowns may be a blessing for new talent, as stylist Natalie Crighton commented, “it makes us go out and find other designers and make new relationships.” Crighton will be dressing Carrie Bickmore, who is nominated for a gold Logie, in Steven Khalil, while Rebecca Judd will wear J’Aton and Asher Keddie will be in Dion Lee.

Schmidt Has Hit The Fan.

Other than the fact that he is a hilarious giant babe, Schmidt, played by Max Greenfield on New Girl, is a ridiculous, ex-obese, loveable loser who has some of the best quotable one-liners ever invented on television. He’s impressed enough to be nominated for a Golden Globe, a Primetime Emmy and a Teen Choice Award for his role as Schmidt, and has been featured as The Look on MR PORTER, which clearly means he’s really made it.

He also played the young Sandy Cohen on The O.C., which definitively makes him the coolest man alive.

If you haven’t watched New Girl, firstly, what is wrong with you? And secondly, check out Schmidt’s online dating profile to experience his comedic genius.

Aside

Before I start, I’d just like to say that I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, so the idea of the stories being Americanized was initially abhorrent to me. However, I am going to admit that I am now also … Continue reading

That Episode Where Hannah Swaps Tops With That Guy

Firstly, I have a strange relationship with Girls. I can only watch it when I’m alone in my room with the sound turned down so no one can hear it, usually late at night, and then I go to bed feeling slightly uncomfortable and incredibly uncool. But I still watch it because sometimes it’s like looking in a goddamn mirror and I’m up-to-date with all my other shows.

In season 2 episode 3, Hannah, in an attempt to “expose all of [her] vulnerabilities to the entire Internet” for a freelance assignment, scores some cocaine from her ex-junkie neighbour and proceeds to get really fucking high. It’s the one where she swaps tops with a guy in a club and ends up with a yellow mesh tank that is see-through and you can see her tits the entire time. It is equal parts hilarious and cringe-worthy. And then at the end she makes out with Laird (what seriously is that name?), her dealer/stalker/ex-junkie/creeper.

Just like at last seasons Bushwick warehouse party, where Shoshanna accidentally does crack and looses her skirt, which like Hannah’s nipples seems to be insignificant, the drug fueled scenes feel very real, and along with the weird sex bit between Marnie and tiny artist man Booth Jonathan, make for a truly entertaining episode.

But because I haven’t really warmed to either Marnie or Hannah, their ongoing feud is kind of annoying, however, their portrayal of a fight between two twenty-something girls in last seasons episode ‘Leave Me Alone’ is so spot on it’s ridiculous. See the smack-down here (skip to 4:30 for the best “bat-shit crazy” bit) –

Doctor Who?

Sassy lady friends

With Doctor Who’s (Whose?) 50th anniversary fast approaching, making it the longest running and most successful sci-fi series of all time (according to the Guinness Book of World Records, which I will take as definitive), I thought it might be an idea to take a look at the most essential of all ingredients in this melting pot of British success, the Doctor’s companion.

The latest to join the Eleventh Time Lord is Clara Oswin Oswald, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, who is taking to the role as sassy sidekick quickly. Check her out in the most recent episode The Bells of Saint John here – 

She commented recently that during filming the new season, “you’re always running – either away from something or towards something.” Running is one of the essential job specs of being the Doctor’s companion, along with being adventurous, curious, funny, brave, and just an all-round amazing chick, not to mention a sartorial genius.

Clara is just the latest in a long line of impressive companions, a few of which I’ve included in a sweet photo collage above, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Steven Moffat brings to the Doctor’s table in this jubilee year.
