Can someone please tell me what happened to E! Entertainment's red-carpet coverage Sunday night? Not only was Ryan Seacrest's hair too high, he all but disappeared during the last 45 minutes of red-carpet time. We were left with a photo montage of celebrities with much information missing, like who designed their dresses. Poor purple-haired Kelly Osbourne, diva has-been Kimora Lee Simmons, and the likable Giuliana Rancic were left filling the dead air with not much to go on. Maybe Seacrest got in trouble?

The Oscar red carpet was awash with sparkling nudes. And that, my fashion friends, was a blah way to end an awards season popping with color. But even though starlets erred on the side of blah this year, the fashions were impeccably classy, and a few even electrified. The carpet popped with the latest runway trends, from Charlize Theron's snow-white peplum gown to Naomi Watts' asymmetrical swirling neckline. Talk about a blaze of sequins. Among our favorite looks was Amy Adams' feathered Oscar de la Renta, Kerry Washington's crystal-bodiced Miu Miu, and Jennifer Lawrence's Dior Haute Couture.

WAS IT JUST us or was the Oscars red carpet a little dull this year? Nobody brought the crazy. Instead, we got a parade of underfed actresses in very light colors ( Jessica Chastain , Charlize Theron , Anne Hathaway , Jennifer Lawrence , Amy Adams , etc.). Or if they weren't in light colors, they seemed to be in armor ( Halle Berry , Naomi Watts , Stacy Keibler ). The men? One boring tuxedo after another. The Oscar red-carpet pre-shows are such a big part of the festivities now that the performers are getting a little cautious - as if Joan Rivers and E!

FORGET THE Dolby Theatre, in Hollywood. Cawley's Irish Pub, in Upper Darby, had its own red carpet for the Oscars - and its own Bradley Cooper. OK, so it was a life-sized cardboard cutout of Cooper . . . and the red carpet was more like a wide strip of industrial-strength paper towel material taped to the tile floor . . . and it was definitely smokier than the Dolby Theatre. But, make no mistake, the pub on West Chester Pike was still the best place for "Silver Linings Playbook" fans to watch the Oscars Sunday night.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Out-of-town visitors generally don't need an excuse to gawk at Grand Central Terminal, the magnificent, 50-acre railroad station - traditionally teeming with travelers - that Travel & Leisure recently rated as the world's sixth most popular tourist attraction. But if they did, then Grand Central's grand centennial, which starts next weekend, would be it, presenting an opportunity to both celebrate the landmark of 42d Street's 100th birthday and marvel anew at the glory of its creation.

In fiery red, sparkling blush, and silken floral dresses, stars attending Sunday night's 70th Annual Golden Globes exposed a deep amount of cleavage and a whole lotta leg. But there wasn't much spillage to be seen - except by Sofia Vergara in a strapless gown by Filipino designer Michael Cinco. That's because most of the celebrities - including the post-pregnant mamas - were tiny and toned. All the deep Vs and thigh-high splits revealed was the flat and the bony. There was nothing left to our imaginations because there was nothing to see. Blame it on Pilates.

The entertainment machine can rob you of your dedication to your art, says actor Jamie Foxx . "Somehow you have to pull yourself away from media, not be so shiny in the next 10 years, because it hurts the art," Foxx tells Men's Health. Foxx, 44, who plays a cowboy in the western Django Unchained (opening Dec. 25), says he tries to find a balance between staying true to his craft and being a crafty media presence who can do the talk shows. "That's the tricky part now. How do you navigate through the world you live in and still be an artist?"

LOS ANGELES - Each year, the Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony presents a steamy challenge for the red carpet's most fashionable, since September is typically L.A.'s hottest month. Sunday should be no exception. The mercury is expected to soar into the 80s midday, when nominees parade inside the Nokia Theatre. Add hundreds of spotlights and a dose of nerves, and maintaining a cool, camera-ready appearance can be a challenge. But the stars have strategies. Emmy-winning animator Kevin Shinick, for example, has a powerful plan.

Bradley Cooper, Brian Klugman, and Lee Sternthal were on Chestnut Street Monday night, navigating the red carpet that had been rolled out in front of the Prince Music Theater. The fans were squealing - well, they were squealing for Cooper - but inside their heads, these three Philly boys were squealing a little, too. The Words , an elaborate, old-style romantic melodrama that Cooper stars in (and executive-produced), and that Klugman and Sternthal wrote and directed, was having its premiere.

"HOLY MOTHER HARRY LOOKS FIT. " So Lady Gaga tweets. ( Fit ? Sexual slang for "hot," "sexy. ") The Lady was talking about Prince "Helicopter" Harry 's naked frame, which was caught on camera during a recent game of strip billiards in Las Vegas. The photos were widely admired around the globe. We think they'll spark renewed interest in the royal family. Buckingham Palace, however, is not amused. An unnamed Harry pal tells Us Weekly "this was not the type of fun he was supposed to be having.
