The frenetic buzz of awards season continues today with the Film Academy’s announcement of 2013′s Oscar nominees. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln racked up an impressive twelve nods, best picture and best actor included. Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, and Naomi Watts are up for the Actress in a Leading Role award, as are 85-year-old Amour star Emmanuelle Riva (the oldest nominee in the category in history) and 9-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild lead Quvenzhané Wallis (the category’s youngest nominee in history). Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Sally Field, Helen Hunt, and Jackie Weaver are in the running for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, while the leading actor list includes Bradley Cooper, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Hugh Jackman. Lincoln, Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook, Amour, Django Unchained, and Argo are all up for Best Picture.
Naturally, during the ceremony on Feburary 24, we’ll have our eye on the stars’ red carpet styles. But with so many period films released in 2012, the masterminds behind this year’s blockbuster costumes are deserving of recognition, too. Jacqueline Durran is nominated in the Achievement in Costume Design category for the 19th-century Russian finery she designed for Anna Karenina (left), while Paco Delgado was nominated for Les Misérables. Joanna Johnston is also on the list for Lincoln‘s Civil War-era garb, and Eiko Ishioka and Colleen Atwood were nominated for Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman, respectively.

Awards season is officially upon us. The Golden Globes are set for Sunday, January 13 (check back for our coverage), and today the nominees for the BAFTAs were announced. Lincoln, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, and Les Misérables racked up the most nods, and red-carpet favorites like Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Marion Cotillard, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Helen Mirren (who just received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame), as well as Javier Bardem, Ben Affleck, Hugh Jackman, and Daniel Day-Lewis, are all up for honors. We’ll have to wait until the ceremony, which will be held at London’s Royal Opera House on February 10, to see who wins and, of course, what everyone wears.

Get briefed on a fitting inauguration day fashion scandal, courtesy of the men’s shows: Trousergate. Apparently there is room for only one pair of quilted trousers in Italy, and Giorgio Armani says he made them first. Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana (whose quilted Fall 2009 look is pictured here) feel otherwise.
In other trouser news: It’s apparently official that the (kind of still) new pant silhouette—the carrot, the peg leg, the dhoti, the banana—has taken Hollywood by storm.
Natalie Massenet is one of our fashion idols for surviving the dot-com bubble that burst quite messily over her former peers. (Remember Bloo.com? We didn’t think so.) With impeccable timing, she’s launching an off-price site called theoutnet.com, scheduled to go live sometime this spring.
Now that we’ve begun to add some color to the women’s magazines and runways, it’s time for the boys to catch up. And, file under Obvious: today couldn’t be a better one to start.
Joaquin Phoenix, who has sworn off acting, takes up rapping, and not just as a hobby. Sean Combs will be producing Phoenix’s debut album, which, judging from footage of this performance, may not be the wisest business venture.
You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time. The Washington Post‘s Robin Givhan weighs in on Michelle Obama’s unique challenge of dressing to please a nation. Really puts your trouble getting dressed this morning into perspective.
