If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Red Carpet Fashion at the VMAs

Published August 26, 2013 by The Feminist

There is a fine line between looking alluringly sexy and looking like an ordinary tramp; a line a lot of celebrities crossed last night at the 2013 VMAs. (Yes, Miley Cyrus, you were one of them.) There were such copious amounts of cleavage, exuberantly long legs, and lots of bare skin, one would almost forget the real purpose behind this tacky parade: the music.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a bit of provocative sexiness, but I do believe you can still pull the sexy card without completely getting undressed. At least leave something to the imagination, people! (yes, I’m talking to you, Miley Cyrus!)
So, are you ready to see some figure-hugging, skin-showing, tight-ass-flaunting outfits?
Here we go!
Is it just me, or did someone rip off a part of Selena Gomez’ dress? Although my first reaction was: “God I want that bra!”, I would like to add that this year’s fashion trend of showing glimpses of lingerie is supposed to be “peek-a-boo” not “in-your-face”.

I don’t know how I feel about Ciara’s Givenchy dress. On the one hand, I think she looks absolutely gorgeous, theatrical and glamourous, but on the other hand… the dress could have done with a tiny bit more pearls on her bum, you know what I mean?

Then there was Ashanti. She decided to wrap her body in a scarf. This proves yet again that scarves belong around your neck, not around your boobs.

At this point of the evening, Miley Cyrus was still relatively acceptably dressed. We had no idea what was yet to follow… (And seriously, girl: you should fire your hair stylist!)

During the show, however, she changed into something more “comfortable”. I’m sure Miley is a lovely girl and all, but jeeeezus Christ, what was she thinking?

This leads me to the best moment of the entire night: a moment that truly captures how everyone felt when they saw Miley Cyrus’ performance. Just look at the reaction of Will Smith and his family:

Priceless!
Luckily for all of us, there were some female artists who understood that you can be sexy and wear clothes at the same time! Phew!
I absolutely adore Taylor Swift’s outfit! She looks extremely elegant and glamourous.

Naya Rivera looked stunning in her black cut-out dress! This is by far the best example of how a good figure-hugging dress that shows off your curves and the right amount of cut-outs in the right places can make you look totally smokin’ without looking like a Moulin Rouge prostitute.

Rita Ora looked sensational! Yes, she showed a lot of leg, ànd a lot of cleavage, but it was still very graceful (read: I didn’t choke on my brownie when I saw her, something that can’t be said about … yes, you Miley Cyrus!)

Lady Gaga’s red carpet dress was rather modest compared to some bizarre showstoppers she has worn before…

But then she must have seen Miley Cyrus’ performance and must have thought: “I can do better.”

vma lady none

Since the female red carpet looks left a lot to be desired, I thought it would be better to focus on the dudes instead.
Macklemore looked so incredibly cool in his minty suit!

Talking about looking all dashing and knight-in-shining-armor-perfect: It’s Darren Criss in what could possibly be the best suit colour I’ve ever seen!

2013 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

My boy Bruno Mars won two VMAs last night, one for best Male Video (Locked out of Heaven) and one for best choreography (Treasure). He looks happy!

By the way, did you see his performance of his new single “Gorilla”? It was so hot, I was literally like this during his entire performance:

yum

Now you mention it, there were some other yummy fellas in the house last night!

vma one direction

Don’t they just make you giggle?
Of course, not all men were dressed to impress. Some wore something really weird (yes, you J.T.), some wore something really boring (yes, you Drake!) and some wore something that was just yuck! (Yes, you Robin Thicke!)

“You know you want it”.

Eh… No thanks.

Eveline’s Fabulous Friday Film Review

Published August 16, 2013 by The Feminist

I confess: I am a bit of a film freak. And as becomes of a freak, I like to totally freak out when a good film hits the theatres. In three days time I went to see two films, and they both were ridiculously awesome. Just like me, I would say. My mom called me crazy and gave the rather insulting remark: “Don’t you have better things to do than go to the movies?”

Seriously?? Mom, you have no idea what you missed out on. I mean, what better way to spend your time than to go totally bezerk over Dave Franco or Darren Criss, right? And you know what? I would pick them over family dinner anytime! Darren Criss sings the Backstreet Boys, y’all! Who would want to miss that?! (PS: But I still love you mom. )

Girl Most Likely: weirdly awesome and awesomely weird

girl-most-likely-international-poster

I repeat: Darren Criss sings the Backstreet Boys. That alone should be enough to get you running to your nearest theatre. But apart from that, this film has a lot more to offer than a cute guy singing one of my favorite nineties songs. Kristen Wiig is brilliant as Imogene (Who the hell calls his child Imogene???) , a playwright who stages her own suicide to get back with her ex, but eventually ends up with her crazy-ass gambling-addicted mother, played by Annette Bening. Brilliant as both Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening may be, there were two male co-stars who were able to even outshine these two leading ladies: Matt Dillon and Christopher Fitzgerald. They both play people who are completely –and when I say completely, I do mean completely– bonkers and you have to be one hell of a good actor to give such a freaky role a warm, human and intricate authenticity. And they did. And it was brilliant. I absolutely loved the sense of humour in Girl Most Likely. It is not a laugh-until-your-belly-aches kinda humour (like Kristen Wiig’s other brilliant movie Bridesmaids) , but a much more subtle and awkward absurdity. I like that. It reminds me that I’m not the only crazy person out there.

Should you for some awful reason still have doubts about this film’s awesomeness, here is my closing argument: Darren Criss takes his shirt off. And sings the Backstreet Boys.

Case closed, I’d say.

Now You See Me: Jesse Eisenberg is so sexy! (when did that happen?)

now_you_see_me_xlg

Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Michael Caine, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and last but definitely not least James Franco’s baby brother, Dave. Just reading this very long list of incredible actors makes me weak in the knees. So much so that I might even say this is probably the best ensemble cast ever. I’m serious! I mean, everybody loves Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, Isla Fisher is just adorable, Mark Ruffalo is his broody delicious self, Harrelson is wonderfully funny, Dave Franco is hot and looks just like his brother , which made it incredibly creepy sometimes, and then there was Jesse Eisenberg, Mister Social Network, whose remarks were so witty and snide I had to suppress the urge to jump up and down in my seat out of pure excitement (Tom Cruise-style) . Oh yes, everyone is fantastic but Jesse Eisenberg is simply sublime!

Now about the story: it’s about a group of four illusionists who rob a bank. The problem with a story about magicians is that we all know ( at least when you’re older than a four year old toddler) that it’s all about the illusion. Nothing is real. Now You See Me, however, is able to overcome this traditional handicap and far surpasses the genre’s limits. The twists and turns follow one another with a hypnotizing speed and the snarky dialogues are so good, it could make you faint. (Especially when you have a Master’s Degree in linguistics, like myself. )

So yes, this movie is absolutely magical (pun fully intended) and let’s just say that Jesse Eisenberg or Dave Franco can conjure up rabbits from my hat any time they like! 😉

Time to drool: The sexiest men of 2012

Published December 28, 2012 by The Feminist

2012 is almost over and what would a year’s end be without the many lists of all the best things 2012 had to offer? It is time to look back and thank the universe for giving us:

• great films (Anna Karenina! Skyfall!)
• great music (Ed Sheeran! Emeli Sandé!)
• great fashion trends (leather skirts! Baroque embroidery!)

and last but definitely not least

• great men (tons and tons of them!)

The following list is very subjective and those who pay a regular visit to my blog will immediately notice that I already dedicated multiple blog posts to most of them. But hey, these guys are just immensely sexy and talented, it would be a crime not to write about them!

1) Bruno Mars: His new album is the perfect combination of energetic songs and profound lyrics and his voice is so unique it gives you goose bumps every single time. And did I mention he is ridiculously good looking too?bruno-mars-gq-01

2) Channing Tatum: recently named People’s Sexiest Man of 2012. Who am I to argue with that, right? After seeing Magic Mike, I have no doubt whatsoever that we will be seeing A LOT MORE from him in 2013!channing-tatum-moty-5

3) Darren Criss: Glee was hot in 2012 and let’s hope it will still be hot in 2013, because Darren Criss was born to be famous. I know that I keep going on and on about how fantastic he is (Seriously, the guy should get his own statue!), but sometimes the truth just needs to be told. And that truth is: He’s hot, he’s funny and he can sing. What more could you ask for? A great sense of style, maybe? Well, consider it done! 😉darren

4) Matt Bomer: A gentleman in dapper suits in White Collar (soooo sexy) and a perfectly toned stripper body in Magic Mike (even more sexy). He may be gay in real life, but he sure has a lot of female fans as well! Did you know that he is also the clear front-runner to play Christian Grey in “ Fifty Shades of Grey”? Well, I sincerely hope he gets the part!

matt_bomer_14

5) Ian Somerhalder: I HATE the Twilight Saga (Why do Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart only have ONE facial expression??) but I absolutely LOVE The Vampire Diaries! And that has everything to do with Ian Somerhalder’s character Damon. He is sexy and has the most awesome sense of sarcasm, a killer combination if you ask me…Ian-3-ian-somerhalder-32631882-337-480

This was my list of favorite hotties of 2012, but who would be in your top 5? I’m definitely curious! 😉

My favorite word: supermegafoxyawsomehot

Published November 22, 2012 by The Feminist

 

It’s a bit childish, I know. But sometimes you just think something- or better: SOMEONE- is that hot, you are simply lost for words. On such rare occasions it is much cooler to impress people with a rather absurd non-existent word than to sit in awe and stare. (And possibly drool, which is even more embarrassing 😉 )

I guess, you are all wondering who, in my humble opinion, deserves to be called supermegafoxyawesomehot, right?

1) It is no secret that I have a huge celebrity crush on Darren Criss. (Blush) And when I saw him perform an acoustic version of Teenage Dream on Glee, I simply melted. In order to get myself together, I shouted “supermegafoxyawesomehot” at my television screen. It didn’t really help, but it was so much fun!

2) I was in the German city Bonn last week where we went to visit a museum. I normally don’t really like visiting museums that much, but that was before I saw this supermegafoxyawesomehot guy walking around! Suddenly I wasn’t just looking at all the images, I was reading all of the accompanying captions as well, just to make sure he would notice me. He didn’t, but I had so much fun!

It doesn’t really matter when you use the word, but make sure that when you do decide to say it, you mean every single syllable of it!(yes, all nine of them!)

The man I would like to kiss: It’s Mr Darren Criss

The man I would like to kiss: It's Mr Darren Criss

Here is my message to all those men who don’t give a crap about fashion: Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. (Mark Twain was such a wise guy!)

So p-leeeaaase, burn all those hooded sweaters, worn-out sneakers, and boring t-shirts and add a touch of glam to your wardrobe!

Just look at Glee-star  Darren Criss for inspiration. There is simply nothing he cannot pull off: bow ties, suits, bold colours, funky sunglasses, …

And besides, the entire female population LOVES him! So if you all go shopping now, we may come to love YOU as well!
