We're huge fans of the cheerfully quirky yet sophisticated style of Moods of Norway. So when we saw that heartthrob Bronson Pelletier from the Twilight series wore a Moods of Norway outfit during the MTV Movie Awards, we were undoubtedly stoked.

The Hills are still alive! MTV has once again renewed The Hills for a sixth season and despite Audrina's comments about quitting the show, she has signed on for the sixth season. Audrina Patridge's rep confirmed to US magazine that the actress will be starring in the next season of The Hills. However, next week Patridge also starts shooting the pilot episode of her own reality show, which will be a spinoff on MTV as well (think The City with Whitney). The Hills is set to resume taping after the new year. So, how will Audrina tape both shows at the same time? Will anybody be watching either one of the shows? Sources close to Audrina say that it is possible that the two shows will play off each other and may be intertwined. One of the sources also said, "She is getting six figures per episode. It is an incredibly lucrative deal." Do you think that Audrina is really worth six figures an episode?
After several years of fighting and book writing Tori Spelling and her mom Candy are finally reconciling. According to Tori's husband Dean McDermott, Tori and Candy are putting aside their past differences and are trying to get along for the sake of Tori's children Liam and Stella. He says that the two have "been in communications," and "Candy has seen the kids." The mother daughter duo has been fighting since Tori's father Aaron Spelling died two years ago. Both of them have written tell-all books which say some not so nice things about the other person. Candy even has accused Tori of using her two kids as "reality-show props" for her show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. Dean says that they are keeping it all private "like it should be." I wonder if they will now write a book together on their reconciling as well?
This week we gathered our HR and Blog Teams together to award the greatest 2009 Zappos Video Blogs. Everyone was quite pleased with the outcome, except Brett, the Blog Team Supervisor. He was quite vocal about the decision.
MTV is handing out spin-off shows like candy to the cast of the popular reality show, The Hills. We first heard that Whitney Port would be getting her own “Hills”-type show, but now playboy Brody Jenner is going to be getting a “Tila Tequila“-type show, called Bromance, where guys will compete to be part of Brody’s entourage. You know what would be hilarious – if Spencer Pratt, Brody’s former BFF, was among the contestants!
You’ll be happy to hear that the world is safe from the spawn of Paris Hilton... for this month anyway. Although there had been rumors that the heiress might be pregnant because of what appeared to be a baby bump, Paris was recently spotted partying at a club for the filming of her upcoming reality show and indulging in some drinking and smoking. So either she’s not pregnant or just really dumb. Of course, this is Paris Hilton we’re talking about, so it could go either way.
Jennifer Garner recently had a bit of a scare while on out with the Jennifer Garner mini-me, daughter Violet. She accidentally locked the keys in the car along with her daughter. Luckily, she was able to give directions to Violet through the window and the smart tot was out quicker than she could say “Jennifer Lopez is my almost-mommy”.
And Jessica Simpson‘s country album hasn’t even been released but that hasn’t stopped the tabloids from creating drama between her and another blonde bombshell country star. Jessica Simpson was recently spotted wearing a t-shirt that read, “Real Girls Eat Meat”. Seems like a pretty innocent t-shirt until you consider the fact that Tony Romo dated Carrie Underwood not too long ago and Carrie is known to be very open about being a vegetarian. Hmm, this could get interesting.
The MTV Awards are always full of unique fashions. You can expect people wearing tennis shoes, mini-dresses, jeans and even jogging pants. The MTV Movie Awards aired on Sunday, June 1, 2008, and there were plenty of unique and interesting outfits.
Here are some of my favorite looks from the red carpet. Sarah Jessica Parker actually got it right this time. No funny hat was in sight. She wore a black metallic mini-dress made by L’Wren Scott with a pair of white ankle boots. She looked like she fit in perfect with the MTV crowd.
Although, she is not my favorite celebrity (if you want to call her that), but Paris Hilton actually looked good at the awards. She wore a white strapless dress that had black lace over the top and then going down the bottom of it. The dress was by Betsey Johnson. She looked well put together and more mature than in the past.
For some of my favorite men, I choose Will Smith. I loved his yellow sweater with the button-up striped shirt underneath it, along with the brown jacket over it. He kept it casual in jeans, but still well styled. Another man who looked great (it’s not that hard for him to do) was Johnny Depp. He kept it simple in a pair of jeans with a black button short-sleeve shirt and a brown belt, but it definitely worked for him.
Now, let’s talk about some of the celebrities that I thought definitely missed the fashion bus. Jennifer Hudson‘s dress was way to tight and when you are wearing a white dress and it is that tight, it does not flatter her at all. Not to mention, that you saw half of her pink bra sticking out at the top and half of cleavage sticking out of her bra.
Another dress that I was not crazy about was Lindsay Lohan ‘s purple Dolce & Gabbana mini-dress with the black belt. It just looked a little sloppy and did nothing for her. I thought that Anne Hathaway‘s leather mini-dress just did not suit her. To me it looked like a wrinkled up garbage bag that had been made into a dress. Although, I loved her hair!
Lastly, thank goodness that Megan Fox changed her dress once she got inside the awards, because the pink Zac Posen dress that she wore on the red carpet was not a good choice. It almost looked like she was going to a high school dance. I did like the white mini-dress that she sported inside the awards….
Although, I did not particularly like her outfit, Ellen Page did keep it real for the awards. She wore a black leather jacket with a white shirt and black skinny jeans tucked into Nike tennis shoes. The Nike shoes were actually pretty cute with black plaid on the sides. If this is her style, then I am glad she went for it. Why try to be something you are not, right? As least not yet.
