  • Inarritu wins Oscar for best director for 'Birdman'

    Updated: Mon, Feb 23, 2015

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu didn't shy away from discussing fashion after winning the Academy Award for best director on Sunday night — he told the audience he was wearing Michael Keaton's underwear. Inarritu called Keaton's "tighty whities" a good luck charm that brought him his second Oscar win on Sunday night. They also brought him laughs, as Inarritu made them a prominent place in his speech. "They are tight, smell like spores," the "Birdman" director said. "They worked. I am here." Keaton laughed boisterously at Inarritu's speech.

  • 'Birdman' takes flight at an Oscars punctuated by politics

    Updated: Mon, Feb 23, 2015

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The long take of "Birdman" has stretched all the way to the Academy Awards, where the jazzy, surreal comedy about an actor fleeing his superhero past took Hollywood's top honor in a ceremony punctuated by passionate pleas for equality. On a stormy night in Hollywood, the 87th annual Academy Awards — which came in humbled by backlash to its all-white acting nominees — bristled with politics and heartfelt speeches about women's rights, immigration, suicide prevention, governmental surveillance and race. In a battle of B-movies for best picture, the Oscars awarded "Birdman" best picture, opting for a movie that epitomizes Hollywood — showy, ego-mad, desperate for artistic credibility — over one ("Boy

  • Lupita's pearls, Margot's plunge earn red carpet raves

    Updated: Sun, Feb 22, 2015

    On this Oscars red carpet, the statement necklaces went home with multiple trophies. "The necklaces, in some ways, overshadowed the gowns," said fashion insider Hal Rubenstein. Other observers agreed (Cate Blanchett wore chunky turquoise), but Sunday night's looks were generally considered classic Academy Awards. They weren't overtly outrageous or revealing, with a show of high necks, long sleeves and allure over skin-baring cutouts, with the usual exemption for Jennifer Lopez. She was in a chest-revealing pale fawn-colored princess gown. Overall, said Yahoo Style editor in chief Joe Zee, "There were no train wrecks. There was no Helena Bonham Carter moment."

  • High collars and demure gowns on the Oscars red carpet

    Updated: Sun, Feb 22, 2015

    High collars replaced sexy cutouts, and Classic Hollywood in blacks and whites took hold of the Oscars red carpet Sunday night with help from a smoking Saint Laurent worn by Margot Robbie and a heavily pearled look for fashion It girl Lupita Nyong'o. There was a slight show of color. Anna Kendrick was in a coral silk-and-chiffon gown with a jeweled halter collar by Thakoon, and Sienna Miller was the first on a major carpet to wear Peter Copping for Oscar de la Renta, a brooding dark blue with thin straps. Jessica Chastain had navy blue all to herself in a double-layered dress with bodice of sparkle that was tight at the hip with a high slit. It had the online snark machine decrying the look as a tad too much Jessica Rabbit.

  • Kendall Jenner steals spotlight at London shows

    Updated: Sun, Feb 22, 2015

    LONDON (AP) — Fashionistas struggled to stay dry and composed Sunday as driving wind and rain hit London Fashion Week, but the miserable weather wasn't the only thing that caused some to lose their cool. Reality TV star and model Kendall Jenner whipped up a mini storm as she arrived for Topshop Unique's show, trailing dozens of paparazzi and fans desperate for a glimpse of her. Elsewhere, designers including Vivienne Westwood, Pringle of Scotland and Jonathan Saunders showcased their latest designs.

  • Weird and wonderful NY Fashion Week moments

    Updated: Fri, Feb 20, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — Here's the thing about holding Fashion Week in February: No one really talks about the clothes — they're too busy talking about the weather. This year, it was even colder than usual, which meant even more painful moments slip-sliding along icy streets and shivering one's you-know-what off waiting for someone to decide to open the doors. Still, some lingering images from the actual shows stand out. A look at what was weird, wonderful or both: ____ KANYE ARRIVES — AND ARRIVES. AND ARRIVES. There's no question who the biggest celeb was this Fashion Week: Kanye West. And boy, was Yeezy everywhere. First, there was his very own fashion show, a collaboration with Adidas.

    Updated: Fri, Feb 20, 2015

    LONDON (AP) — It's time to kick off those snow boots and pack the brolly. After battling sub-zero temperatures at New York Fashion Week, fashionistas are decamping to London for another whirlwind week of catwalk shows, champagne and parties. The London event, which opens Friday, features new designs from almost 80 designers, including from powerhouses like Burberry and Topshop Unique and young names Christopher Kane and Erdem. Here are some of the highlights from Day 1: ___ FERGIE AT NAOMI'S BASH What's fashion week without a supermodel?

  • Movie mumbles: The story behind the 'Interstellar' dialogue

    Updated: Fri, Feb 20, 2015

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — "What did they say?" More than a few moviegoers have been left asking that question. From "Birdman" and "Inherent Vice" to "Gone Girl" and "Interstellar," films this Oscar season have seemed more inaudible than ever. Audiences have always had to deal with the marble mouthed mumblers of cinema — Marlon Brando, for instance — but something else seemed to be going on this past year. And we're not talking obvious choices — like Bill Murray whispering to Scarlett Johansson at the end of "Lost in Translation." In Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," in particular, dialogue sounds muffled and obscured in crucial scenes, from a climactic emergency docking to a quiet confessional.

And so at the very stroke of 6 p.m. on Thursday, fashionistas in the cavernous Park Avenue Armory were thrown back into their seats with a huge, pounding "BOOM!" It was just really, really loud music, but it certainly got everyone's attention.

  • Customers flock to Oklahoma's first Urban Outfitters for opening day

    BY DYLAN GOFORTH, Tulsa World | Published: Thu, Feb 19, 2015

    Fifteen minutes before the staff at Tulsa's Urban Outfitters opened their doors for the store's first day of business, a nervous energy could be felt inside and outside. Jeremy Johnston, the store's manager, had about a dozen employees doing a little last-minute hyping, getting them pumped up for the opening. Outside the store, shoppers began to crowd around, peeking into the windows and taking selfies with the Urban Outfitters sign in the background. And not everyone in that crowd was from Tulsa, a fact Urban Outfitters officials likely planned on when they decided upon the city. The store, at 3340 S. Peoria Ave., is the only location in about a 4½-hour radius. Read the rest of this story at TulsaWorld.com .

  • NY Fashion Week: Jeremy Scott channels the nursery

    Updated: Wed, Feb 18, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Associated Press is all over New York Fashion Week, from its runway fashions to celebrity-packed events. Here's what some AP writers are seeing: ___ JEREMY SCOTT TAKES US BACK TO THE NURSERY It's too bad that Kanye West didn't bring young daughter North when he checked out Jeremy Scott's fashion show on Wednesday. The nursery motif — dolls, hippos, little lambs, teddy bears — would have made the toddler feel right at home. Scott's shows are never less than whimsical and entertaining, and this one held true to form. Models sauntered down the runway in babydoll mini-dresses and tights in pastel colors like baby blue and yellow and bright pink. They wore sweet baby bonnets or long stocking c

  • 'Fashion Police' host Griffin gets Oscars red-carpet ready

    Updated: Wed, Feb 18, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — Kathy Griffin likes to joke (or is she serious?) that, one year on her tax return, she put her profession as "Anonymous." Such is her multi-hyphenate stature: a standup comic, sitcom star, reality-show queen, periodic D-Lister and, now, host of "Fashion Police," E! network's rollicking red-carpet rip. Griffin has retrieved the couture-critique mantle from Joan Rivers, who presided riotously in cahoots with her "Joan Rangers" until her death last summer. "She obviously left very big shoes," said Griffin. "But we agree that it's essential to comedy to be fearless and not be afraid to make enemies — certainly, in Hollywood! C'mon, we're not talking about heads of state here.
