Seth Meyers isn’t worried about Golden Globe Awards hosts Amy Poehler and Tiny Fey being entertaining tomorrow. Why not? He prepared them for the show himself! The soon-to-be host of Late Night tells InStyle that he is the man behind the duo’s roster of jokes for tomorrow night’s awards – well kind of. “I have readied myself for the beautiful music of Poehler and Fey,” he told us at Diane von Furstenberg’s Journey of a Dress exhibition premiere in Los Angeles on Friday night, which brought out an A-list of stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Demi Moore. “I’ve been helping out, every year. The last two years, those of us who have worked with them have been happy to suggest jokes; not that they really need our help.”
As for the comedic lineup, Meyers says we should expect to be highly entertained, just like last year. “I heard their jokes last night – we went to a read-through and they are in great shape, they are great,” says Meyers, who takes on the role of presenter at this year’s awards. “They have earned the goodwill of the audience. It is the perfect formula for that kind of show.”

Find Out What the Cast of 12 Years a Slave Had To Say During InStyle’s Golden Globes Kick-Off CelebrationJan 11, 2014 @ 5:15 pm
What does an InStyle party with the cast of Golden Globe-nominated and Steve McQueen-directed film, 12 Years a Slave look like? Nothing short of sophistication and glamour! Last night at the Golden Globe kick-off celebration with L’Oreal, InStyle‘s editor Ariel Foxman brushed shoulders with the gorgeous Lupita Nyong’o—who stole the show in a bright yellow Victoria Beckham number—along with her co-stars Michael Fassbender (in Calvin Klein), Chiwetel Ejiofor (in Carolina Herrera), Alfre Woodard (in Tadashi Shoji), Benedict Cumberbatch (in Spencer Hart and Rag & Bone).
As the stars prep themselves for tomorrow’s big night—airing live on January 13th starting at 8:00PM ET/5:00PM PT on NBC—it didn’t stop them from having some fun one another and admitting to InStyle who exactly is the group’s biggest jokester. “Lupita is as elegant and intelligent as they come, but don’t let her fool you, she knows how to have fun,” Woodard admitted. “Chiwetel is as open-hearted and gracious as he seems, and I think Michael and I talk more trash than you could imagine. Steve McQueen is very glib and Benedict is great, you wouldn’t think he’s excitable but he is!” But the group’s general consensus fell on co-star Fassbender. “Everyone said me?” Fassbender asked InStyle, “fine, I’ll take it.” Take a peek inside the 12 Years a Slave party by looking through our gallery and be sure to tune in to InStyle.com for InStyle’s exclusive viewing party videos during tomorrow’s 71st Annual Golden Globes!
Diane von Furstenberg Celebrates the Dress That “Paid All My Bills” with Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore and OthersJan 11, 2014 @ 3:05 pm
Last night, Diane von Furstenberg kicked off the 40th anniversary of her famed wrap dress with the launch of the “Journey of a Dress” exhibition at the Wilshire May Company Building in Los Angeles, now open to the public until March. To help honor the dress that started it all for the designer, von Furstenberg invited a few of her closest friends—including Gwyneth Paltrow, Rachel Zoe, Coco Rocha, Seth Meyers, Ahna O’Reilly, Demi Moore, Allison Williams, Ashley Olsen—who all paid homage to DVF by wearing one of her many creations (except for Meyers of course!) “This is the first time that I’ve ever honored the wrap dress, who has paid for all my bills,” von Furstenberg said to InStyle.com. “I took her for granted, and now I am honoring her and it feels good.”
Inside the gallery-style space, vintage and contemporary DVF designs were displayed on countless mannequins—including the very first sample of the wrap dress— dating back over the past four decades, as well as a collection of von Furstenberg photos created by artists and photographers alike including Andy Warhol, Helmut Newton, and Annie Leibovitz, not to mention an oversized guestbook filled with loving notes written to the designer, which caught the attention of Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon.
As von Furstenberg greeted each of her guests—who all enjoyed small bites like mini shrimp tacos, mushroom crostinis, veggie samosas, and crispy white truffle risotto cakes—the designer saved her most glowing praise for the other “girls” in the room, those iconic wrap dresses. As she looked around at the hundreds of her creations on display, she admitted to InStyle.com, “they are all my children,” and she just simply couldn’t pick a favorite. Here’s to another 40 years!
As Hollywood gears up for tomorrow’s big Golden Globe Awards, many stars are putting the finishing touches on the dress they chose months ago—but not Emma Roberts! The recently engaged star is playing red carpet roulette with her gown this year.
“Some of our clients are coming in the day of the Globes so we are going to be deciding that day, stylist Meritt Elliott told InStyle exclusively at Diane von Furstenberg’s star-studded Journey of a Dress exhibition premiere in Los Angeles on Friday night. “We will be accessorizing beforehand, tailoring during hair and makeup and then come up with the entire look that day. It is actually kind of exciting as well.”
With Roberts busy schedule, she’ll be one of the aforementioned stars that will be making a game time decision with her dress. “Emma Roberts is going to wait until the day of Globes because she is in the middle of filming American Horror Story and she is flying in just for the day,” chimed in stylist Emily Current. “It is an opportunity to put your formal wear on and embrace it.”
Dying to see which dress she chooses? So are we! Tune in Sunday, January 12th at 8:00PM ET/5:00PM PT on NBC for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards and stay tuned to InStyle as we cover the event live.

What Will InStyle’s Golden Globes Party Be Like? Take a Peek at the Exquisite Bashes From the Past For Hints (Flaming Chandeliers, Anyone?)Jan 11, 2014 @ 11:28 am
It’s less than 36 hours until the big event on Sunday. No, we’re not talking about the Golden Globes (though we’re excited about that too!) — we’re counting down until the start of the 15th Annual InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globes after-party, which is always one of the hottest tickets in town.
After all, a party isn’t a party without sharkskin booths to sit in, stunning chandeliers hung with thousands of gold metal strands to dazzle the room while you sip champagne, and stainless steel gorilla cages suspended from the ceiling with 50,000 hand-tied crystals, right? According to mastermind event designer Thomas Ford, no!
Which is why we’re so fortunate to have him at the helm each year for our annual bash. The famed event planner creates the stunning décor inside our fête each year (and he’s no novice — he’s been transforming our annual bash since 2002).
From elaborate tenting to jaw-dropping light installations, we’re taking you inside our past parties, where Hollywood’s elite (including Jessica Alba, Bradley Cooper, and Emma Stone) head after the ceremony. “I always try to do something that I’m a little afraid of, so that until the last moment I don’t know if its going to work,” Ford tells InStyle.com of how he decides on each years’ room inspiration. “It’s either going to be brilliant or a disaster — hopefully brilliant!”
Where does he begin the brainstorming process? First and foremost, he consults the color wheel. “Just like in fashion, you can get a sense of what colors are going to be trending,” he tells us, hinting at the magnificent creation that’s currently being constructed for this Sunday’s event. “This is a big year for [the color] yellow, and blue is always a winner.”
From previous parties (he’s done everything from encrusting flamingo statuettes with Swarovski crystals, to hanging gold mirrored chains from the ceiling), here’s a look back at the outrageously beautiful interiors.
Plus, stay tuned to get a peek inside this year’s bash on Sunday, January 12. We have a feeling Ford won’t disappoint!
In 1970, famed fashion columnist and editor Diana Vreeland was the first person to truly understand the significance of the dress designs brought to her by Diane von Furstenberg, then a young princess newly arrived in New York City. “I think your clothes are absolutely smashing,” Vreeland told her, though it would take another four years before von Furstenberg would strike upon the design that would make her a household name, practically overnight.
It was Vreeland’s encouragement that von Furstenberg cites as “the most important thing that happened in my career,” she said. And it is a letter of endorsement from Vreeland that opens “Journey of a Dress,” an equal parts fashion exhibition and powerful brand statement that von Furstenberg is now showing in Los Angeles. The dress in question is, of course, the wrap dress, a simple design of printed jersey that closes like a bathrobe and ties at the waist, which von Furstenberg created when she was 26.
