The 2010 Emmys kicked off with a Glee-inspired number that had us in side stitches. The sketch featured host Jimmy Fallon leading several members of the Glee cast along with stars like Betty White, Jon Hamm, Tina Fey, Nina Dobrev and Kate Gosselin in a rousing rendition of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run.” Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy winner Jane Lynch joined in, tossing slushies in Fallon and Fey’s faces. Watch the video above, and then tell us what you think the funniest moment was in the comments section below!
Randall Christensen, the costume designer behind all the glittering outfits on Dancing with the Stars, has just signed a deal to design women’s apparel, bridal, outerwear, footwear, jewelry and accessories. “The right costume for an individual’s body can be transformational. I have seen women grow a couple of inches taller right before my eyes, with the right clothes and accessories, that strap, minimize, lift, shape and accentuate,” said Christensen, who was responsible for Pam Anderson and Kate Gosselin’s sexy looks. “Every woman deserves that kind of confidence.” The collections will be a modern interpretation of his signature Hollywood glamour, but tailored for everyday dressing. Tell us: would you buy Randall Christensen-designed clothes?
With just hours to go before the DWTS season premiere, head costume designer Randall Christensen gave us the style scoop on what the cast will wear. “We don’t buy a single thing off the rack,” says Christensen, whose team creates as many as 22 costumes in a single week. “After each results show we get 15 minutes with each celebrity to discuss the next look. Wednesdays we shop for fabric, Thursdays we cut patterns and Fridays we do fittings. The only dress rehearsal is just 2 hours before the Monday shows, so we’re often stitching someone into a dress and gluing on rhinestones during the overture!” What’s it like collaborating with strong-willed women like Kate Gosselin and Pamela Anderson? “The women get critiqued much more on what they wear, so I try to give them what they want,” Christensen says. “Since Kate is from the reality world, she was new to all this. We looked through stacks of magazines and I tried to give her lots of reassurance. Pam walked in and said, ‘Now I finally have the chance to be a Vegas showgirl!‘”
