It’s always important to dress appropriately for different occasions, and over the years Naomi Campbell has proven to be an expert at that!

The supermodel attended the South-South Awards held at the United Nations in New York City on Sunday wearing a dark navy suit.

While the ensem’s perfect for peaceful politics, the flirty ruffles at the bust and cuffs added a twist that only a fashion icon like Naomi could pull off.

It also appeared that Miz Campbell’s hair was back to its long length after briefly taking the shape of a sassy bob earlier this month.

You know what they say: hair today, gone tomorrow! Ha!

Lady Gaga to perform at 2013 MTV VMAs

Mother Monster is back!

MTV announced Thursday that Lady Gaga will take the stage at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards to perform the first single from her highly anticipated album, ARTPOP.

The 27-year-old singer is the first artist revealed to be performing on the upcoming awards show, which airs Sunday, August 25th.

Gaga has a rich history of making headlines at the MTV VMAs. Let’s see – there was that infamous meat dress, a daring blood-soaked performance, and a date named Kermit the Frog, to name a few examples. In 2011, she memorably transformed into her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone, by dressing in drag. Gaga also has a whopping 13 VMA Moonmen to her name.

There’s no telling what the shocking songstress will bring to 2013 s show.

Mother Monster has laid low on the performance front since undergoing hip surgery in February, although she did belt out a kick-ass rendition of “The National Anthem” at New York Pride last month. Gaga recently announced that her next album, ARTPOP, will drop November 11th.

One person who might not be too excited for the “Born This Way” singer’s return? Lana Del Rey. A demo for Lana’s four year old track, “So Legit,” just leaked and it’s chock-full of Gaga hatin.’

Personally, we can’t wait to see what Lady Gaga has got up her couture sleeve. Viva VMAs, Little Monsters!

Neil Patrick Harris is gay. Jane Lynch is gay. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon went gay (for a movie) this year. Everything was gay and everyone felt the need to keep reminding us they were having a gay old time. It was, well, pretty gay.

For easy viewing, Celebuzz condensed the entire 3+ hour show down to its core, its gay jokes.

The night is over and the awards have been given out.

This year’s biggest acts went head-to-head at the MTV Video Music Awards, all vying to nab one of MTV’s coveted Moonman trophies. So, who won big at the 2013 ceremonies?

Here are the night’s biggest winners – marked in red.

They knew she was trouble when she walked on stage.

Taylor Swift threw some serious shade at ex-boyfriend Harry Styles during Sunday’s MTV VMAs when she accepted a Moonman for her “I Knew You Were Trouble” music video, telling the crowd, “I also want to thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is, because now I got one of these.”

However, Harry’s bandmates – the lovable lads of One Direction – were also quick with a comeback to defend their musical comrade-in-arms.

“When she said those things about Niall [Horan], we were very, very pissed off,” band member Liam Payne joked to New York magazine at the New York City premiere of One Direction: This Is Us Monday night.

Hashtag get over it,” Liam added. “I was going to do a Kanye!”

The singer also echoed the sentiments to Us Weekly, telling the publication, “I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award, it’s like, concentrate on yourself!”

Well, we all know what four words Taylor has for these “Best Song Ever” crooners. It’s too bad she didn’t mention them when she actually snapped a photo with her ex that night.

Welcome back to Celebuzz’s Most Iconic VMA Moments showdown. In anticipation of of the 2013 MTV VMA ceremony on August 25, we want you to help us name the most iconic VMA fashion moment ever. Last week, we asked you to vote for your favorite VMA performance. (Britney Spears’ 2001 performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U” won in that category.) This week, it’s all about the clothing (or lack thereof). Return each day this week for a new feature on each of our competing fashion statements. You may vote once per hour.

Is Lil’ Kim‘s “purple pasty” outfit the most iconic VMA fashion moment ever? Vote below, and read on for an in-depth look back at the rapper’s memorable appearance at the 1999 VMAs.

Lil’ Kim’s Purple Pasty: A Look Back at the Shocking Ensemble

Before anyone had heard the name Nicki Minaj, there was Lil’ Kim. A protege of The Notorious B.I.G., Kim achieved great success in the mid-to-late ’90s as a rapper and controversial figure. In 1999, more than three years after her debut album, Hard Core, dropped, Kim was gearing up to release her sophomore effort, The Notorious K.I.M. She showed up on the 1999 VMAs red carpet wearing what is undoubtedly one of the most memorable ensembles of all time. Notorious, indeed.

The outfit, designed by Kim’s stylist, Misa Hylton-Brim, is now almost 15-years-old, and we still haven’t forgotten it. At the time, Kim was well-known in the hip hop world for her sexually-charged raps and outrageous fashion choices. Dressing in head-to-toe purple would have turned heads regardless, but the fact that her left breast hung out, covered only by a sequined pasty in the shape of a shell, made Kim’s look the most talked-about thing of the evening. Or, to quote the lil’ woman herself: “T*tty out like WHA / I don’t give a F@#%!”

Of course, for all of the red carpet “OH MY GOD”s and “WTF”s caused by Kim’s outfit, the real shocker didn’t come until showtime. When Kim took the stage with Mary J. Blige and Diana Ross to present the award for Best Hip Hop Video, Diana reached over and jiggled Kim’s breast in front of the entire audience. Ladies and gentlemen, when music royalty feels you up on national television, you know you’ve made a truly outrageous – and iconic – fashion impression.

Don’t forget to cast your vote for the most iconic VMA outfit above. Again, you may vote once per hour. Return each day this week for a new feature on each of the outfits in our poll.

Blue Jasmine is out in select theaters today – and so, too, is our first potential glimpse at this year’s Oscar race for Best Actress.

The film stars Cate Blanchett as a wealthy New York housewife whose financial rug is pulled out from under her after her husband’s (Alec Baldwin) Bernie Madoff-esque schemes are exposed. This leads her to crash at her sister’s (Sally Hawkins) place in San Francisco, where she very quickly begins to have a nervous breakdown, as seen in the terrifying clip below:

For her performance in the film, Blanchett has already racked up some of the best reviews of the year, if not her career. Variety called her “mesmerizing,” while trade rival The Hollywood Reporter described her as “neurotically golden.” These are the types of rave reviews that are typically reserved for end-of-year Oscar players, meaning Blanchett already has a leg-up in what will likely become a very competitive race.

Of course, even the most passive Oscar pundit will tell you that reviews can only get you so far; if they dictated everything, I’d have written this very same article about Frances Ha’s Greta Gerwig a couple months back. In which case, Blanchett is going to have a do a bit of leg work to keep her buzz going until the nominations are announced in January. The question is: Can she do it?

The short and long answer is probably yes. For one thing, Blanchett already has a well-established history with the Academy. She was first nominated in 1998 for Elizabeth, and went on to win six years later for The Aviator. Three subsequent nominations followed – for Notes on a Scandal, in 2006, and the double-whammy of Elizabeth: The Golden Age and I’m Not There in 2007 – meaning they like her consistently enough to always keep her in the conversation.

But if they like Blanchett, then they really, really like her director, Woody Allen, a man who has received a staggering 23 nominations over the course of his long and successful Hollywood career. (He most recently won a fourth statue for Midnight in Paris in 2011.) Granted, they were mostly for his comedies (this one is a drama of sorts); but when voters get the chance to vote for Woody and/or one of his players, odds are they will try to find a way to do it. (Remember that Original Screenplay nomination for Deconstructing Harry in 1997?)

Of course, any sort of Oscar talk before September is kind of moot, especially when you consider the amount of competition Blanchett may face in the coming months – mainly, from Meryl Streep, who stars as a pill-popping mother in Tracy Letts’ adaptation of August: Osage County, and Sandra Bullock’s one-woman show in the terrifying-looking Gravity. There’s also Judi Dench in Philomena to contend with, as well as Nicole Kidman in Grace of Monaco, Naomi Watts in Diana and, well, you get the idea.

But for now, at least, things are looking pretty good.

Is Nicki Minaj‘s Harajuku Barbie outfit the most iconic VMA fashion moment ever? Vote below, and read on for a head-to-toe examination of Nicki’s infamous get-up.

Nicki Minaj Upstages Lady Gaga, Wears an Outfit Made of *Everything* to the 2011 VMAs

In 2011 – one year after the meat dress – Lady Gaga was the favorite to make the biggest “WTF” red carpet splash (again). And she did, in her way. Though for her, Jo Calderone is relatively toned down. Plus, we’d already seen “Jo” before, so ultimately, it wasn’t that shocking. So who was truly the most outrageous star of the night? Why, we’d have to say that the honor belongs to Nicki Minaj, who showed up wearing… well, everything but the kitchen sink. (Though the kitchen sink may, in fact, be there, hidden under layers of cotton, tulle, and metal.) To fully appreciate Nicki’s outrageous get-up, let us take a head-to-toe look at the ensemble. Let’s start with the braided cotton candy hair:

Moving down, we see Nicki has opted for the oh-so-in “surgical mask look.” (Or the “Scorpion look,” if you prefer.)

As we continue down, you will note that Nicki is wearing a chain around her neck and that the chain has a rather large ice cream cone attached to it. The structured bodice of her outfit appears to be made of metal, which comes together in pyramidal formations over her breasts. A reference to Madonna? Who can say, really?

Now, things get even tricker, if you can believe it, as we approach the lower half of the outfit. There appears to be some kind of tutu, several layers of tights, a garter. Nicki also plumped for socks, rather than for the ber-traditional shoes that most people wear when leaving the house. Of course, we can’t forget that, chained somewhere to her outfit, is some kind of Harajuku mace thing made of stuffed animals and the anxious nightmares of children around the world.

For good measure, here is the outfit in all of its glory. Love it or hate it, it happened, and you remember it. Don’t pretend like you’ve forgotten. And wasn’t that the point?

Don’t forget to cast your vote for the most iconic VMA outfit above. Again, you may vote once per hour. Return each day this week for a new feature on each of the outfits in our poll.

Angelina Jolie

Finding out who wins an Academy Awards is great, but the real competition is on the red carpet. Check out five leading ladies who really got it right!

Angelina Jolie (above) made waves in 2004 in a white satin Marc Bouwer gown with a plunging neckline.

That same year Charlize Theron looked stunning in a white sequined figure-huggin Tom Ford for Gucci gown. Va va voom! Unfortunately, she had a fashion misstep a few years later.

In 2003, Jennifer Lopez took a chance in a mint green Valentino one-shouldered kaftan-styled robe based on a design for Jackie Kennedy.

Penelope Cruz turned heads in 2009 in a vintage Balmain 50’s gown, while Halle Berry sizzled in 2002 in a burgundy Elie Saab gown. She also won “Best Actress” for Monster’s Ball that year.
