Who is the 'Sexiest Tweeter'? Victoria's Secret wants you to decide


Who’s hot? Who better to decide than the Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Each year the lingerie brand releases the “What is Sexy” list, a celebration of the hottest female celebrities broken down into categories like “Sexiest Lips,” “Sexiest Chef,” and “Sexiest International Import.” This year, Victoria’s Secret is letting voters decide who is crowned the winner in two fan-favorite categories.

Olivia Wilde, Elizabeth Banks, Rashida Jones, and Stacy Keibler are up for “Sexiest Tweeter” — is it just me or does that sound kind of dirty? — described as the bombshell with the best Twitter skills.

So far, none of the finalists has used her Twitter feed to actively campaign for the win, though Banks has re-tweeted a couple of fans who say she got their vote.

And though apparently unrelated to the competition, a recent tweet from Jones is bound to draw the support of voters who think adorkable women are sexy. READ FULL STORY

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Where did Effie Trinket get that designer outfit?

When Lionsgate released the Capitol Portraits for Catching Fire, it became clear that costume designer Trish Summerville (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) had really upped the fashion ante for the second installment in the The Hunger Games trilogy.

Now, a new still from Catching Fire shows District 12 escort Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) wearing a voluminous dress from one of the world’s most recognizable designer labels.

Judging from the response to last week’s poll, there are quite a few fashion critics in the PopStyle audience, so we’re going to make YOU Grade the Looks a weekly feature.

Who pulled it off and who should have thought twice before walking out the door? You decide.

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): Creating signature styles for 'The Hunger Games'


The Hunger Games hair department head Linda Flowers knows a thing or two about working with young people, creating a look, and putting it all together for films on a massive scale. Flowers ran hair for Captain America, The Social Network, and Iron Man 2, among others, so she is no stranger to big sets and big stars. While she was familiar with the Suzanne Collins novels, she hadn’t read the series and says she started reading them “the minute” she got the call to interview for the gig on the blockbuster. In an interview originally published as the film hit theaters, Flowers takes us inside the movie’s signature looks.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How did The Hunger Games set compare to other films you’ve worked on? What were the challenges in creating the initial concept?
It was definitely on the biggest scale for hair I’ve ever done. I’ve done big wig movies, I’ve done period movies, but never were the characters like [those in] the Capitol. Usually the shape of the hair is already dictated by the period, whereas this was in the future so we got to create this society. The challenge was to make it look couture and to make people take the Capitol seriously, even though they have pink hair and aqua hair and orange hair, so that was a real challenge. You have to create these styles for each individual character all the way down to the number 510 extra person that comes into the room.
