    Adele at the Oscars

    We love the way Adele keeps it real and true to herself on the red carpet. We also love the way drugstore hair products were used to create her Bond girl hair at the Oscars.

    Angelina Jolie Leg Oscars 2012

    Something tells us that Angelina Jolie is somewhere out in Malibu with her ultra-toned right leg covered in a militia’s worth of ice packs after last night’s odd show of the come-hither at the 84th annual Academy Awards.
