YEA OR NAY: The Sexiest Man Alive Is… Bradley Cooper? Really?


Okay, ladies and gents. Time to vote with your loins. People just announced that the Sexiest Man Alive is Bradley Cooper — he of the smarmy rictus and greasy hair (a.k.a. devilish grin and luscious locks, for those who are decidedly in the pro-Cooper camp). As OMG points out, many people aren’t thrilled with the choice, especially when others like the omnipresent Ryan Gosling seem a much better fit for the title.

Where do you stand? Is Bradley Cooper the sexiest man alive, or should someone else have won the title? And if so, who?

Rachel Zoe Gives B-Side Blog Exclusive Story Behind Anne Hathaway’s Oscar Looks


Last night’s telecast of the Oscars was one of the dullest in years, thanks in part to lackluster nominations, predictable wins, and lame comedy bits. Just about the only thing noteworthy was hostess Anne Hathaway’s perpetually changing wardrobe, which consisted of eight looks overall. I couldn’t help think about the toll this must have put on celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, who manages to suffer a near aneurysm every year when she needs to dress Annie in one dress, let alone eight.

Luckily, the harried stylist was able to take some time out of her busy schedule to talk about each of Anne Hathaway’s ensembles. Exclusive commentary after the jump… Continue reading
