Sofia Vergara's Perforated Gown and the Gin Blossoms' Pop Culture Legacy

Lead singer Robin Wilson on being a part of pop culture history.

 

Here's what everybody's gabbing about at the water cooler:

'Modern Family' actress Sofia Vergara attended an event for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in a half see-through gown (below). But of course, the gown's see-through material is draped over the less risqué half. Otherwise, you'd probably have to pay $9.95 per month to read this website.

With hits like "Hey Jealousy" and "Follow You Down," the Gin Blossoms were an unforgettable part of the '90s music scene. We had the chance to chat with talented (and sarcastic) singer Robin Wilson about his band, and what it feels like to be part of pop culture history. Check it out in the video above.

On Wednesday in New York City, Jessica Alba's skirt went flying when she made the mistake of standing over a subway grate. And by "mistake," we definitely don't mean "carefully calculated decision." Not in the slightest.

"X Factor" creator Simon Cowell is teaming up with the people who made "The Lego Movie" to produce an animated/live-action film about Betty Boop. Finally, a whole new generation will learn the timeless appeal of cartoon woman with an hourglass body and the head of a surprised baby!

Cowell also tweeted out a picture of himself and his 6-month-old son Eric sporting matching aviator sunglasses (below). He captioned his post "Taking after daddy," presumably because of the sunglasses, but maybe also because Eric just said something incredibly nasty to a hopeful singer.

The screenwriter of "Fifty Shades of Grey" thinks Jamie Dornan is going to win an Oscar for his portrayal of Christian Grey. We'd argue otherwise, but if Dornan can breathe life into whatever words this delusional screenwriter put in the script, perhaps it's possible.

On Wednesday night's episode of "Watch What Happens Live," Kim Kardashian said her brother Rob skipped out on her wedding at the last minute because he would be "uncomfortable" being there. "Wait, we could've done that?" is probably what the attendees are asking themselves right now.

"Shameless" actress Emmy Rossum participated in the ice bucket challenge (basically a dare for charity) while wearing a bikini top, thereby making all of your friends' previous (and future) attempts on Facebook boring and unwatchable.

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore reportedly gave their daughter Tallujah an ultimatum in late July, telling her to go to rehab for substance abuse or else. She chose rehab, probably because she's seen enough Bruce Willis movies where things don't turn out well for people who choose "else."

According to a Norwegian newspaper, Casey Kasem's body will be laid to rest in Oslo, Norway, finally bringing an end to his post-mortem world tour.

The producer of this year's Emmy Awards announced that the ceremony will include a special tribute to Robin Williams, although they're not yet sure what it will be. More than likely, though, it'll start with a reel of his work, then when the lights come up in the auditorium, the entire audience will be sitting on their heads. Just a guess.

And finally, Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough got engaged on Thursday to Australian stuntman Ben Smith-Peterson. They announced the news on Facebook, and not with a Hawaiian wedding ditty, as her grandfather undoubtedly would've preferred:
