Despite the fact that she’s widely loved as an actress–and lauded as a crusader for more positive body image–there’s been a hefty internet-wide backlash to Kate Winslet‘s recently-dropped Vogue cover. Of course, the problem has nothing to do with Winslet herself… and everything to do with Vogue‘s over-eager retouchers.
But the painting of Winslet on the November cover isn’t exactly new territory for Vogue–they recently hacked off Claire Danes‘ limbs, for one. Moreover, there are quite a few covers from the last ten years that rival Winslet’s for showcasing humans who don’t exactly resemble humans. Let’s take a look. More
There was a lot of premiering afoot last night! From New York to London to Madrid to Berlin, stars and wannabes alike stepped out on red carpets in their stylists’ finest. Here’s what they wore. More
Lace up your saddle shoes and get that moth ball smell off of your autumn sweaters, it’s back to school time. More
On most red carpets, there are a few “hits” and a number of “misses,” whether it’s because of ridiculous cutouts, crazy illusion dresses, awkward Willy Wonka getups…all of it. But then, every once in a while, the switch for style is just on.
For Carey Mulligan, Gabrielle Union, Freida Pinto and Michelle Dockery, the red carpet of the Miu Miu Women’s Tales screening was exactly that. More
The 2013 Cannes Film Festival is occurring as we speak, though it occurred some over the weekend, too. Here’s what all those fancy people wore on the red carpet. Expect Jennifer Lawrence, Carey Mulligan, Jessica Biel, Rooney Mara, a slew of models and a couple good old Fashion Disasters. More
The 2013 Cannes Film Festival began yesterday–kicking off with Baz Luhrmann‘s take on The Great Gatsby. Here is the celebrity-laden red carpet, featuring the film’s stars, various fellow A-listers, a slew of fancy Euro-celebs and at least one Phoebe Price (obviously). More
This week, we’re playing in honor of Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming glitzy blockbuster, The Great Gatsby (which Jen hated, PS). Today’s trio will therefore be Jay Gatsby (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), Tom Buchanan (played by Joel Edgerton) and Nick Carraway (played by Tobey Maguire). Jen’s dream has always been to marry Gatsby, so the ‘bed’ option is the wild card here. …The one thing everyone is certain about, though, is how hard Daisy sucks. More
We have previously established that Tiffany’s The Great Gatsby-inspired collection is incredible, but for most of us, obtaining any of that gorgeous jewelry is quite the pipe dream. The kind of people who could afford such beautiful baubles, bangles and beads are people who are famous and wealthy like, oh, I don’t know, movie stars? More
Last night, Baz Luhrmann‘s hotly anticipated reimagining of The Great Gatsby premiered in New York and the glittery movie’s cast showed up in their glitteriest looks. Except Carey Mulligan, who went the extreme opposite direction.
Many sparkles, sequins, pearls and appliques ahead… More
Carey Mulligan is currently in the thick of promoting The Great Gatsby, which is good news for anyone who enjoys looking at pictures of Carey Mulligan. In the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, Ms. Mulligan poses for a series of lovely, seasonally appropriate photos: there are flowers on the trees and on her clothes, and she even wears a pair of rain boots in one shot. Her beauty look is fittingly soft and natural, and the accompanying article is full of cute tidbits, like the music she listened to to get pumped up for scenes in The Great Gatsby (LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”) and the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio wrote her notes and signed them as Gatsby. Aw. More
Last night in NYC, costume designer Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada threw a huge splashy star (and fashion people)-studded cocktail party to celebrate Prada’s contributions to the upcoming Baz Luhrmann joint, The Great Gatsby. So, so many fancy people were there, including Gatsby stars Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher, along with Katy Perry, Florence Welch, Alexa Chung, Maggie Gyllenhaal and many more. More
Every now and then when I’m feeling sad, I remember that Baz Luhrmann‘s crazy, postmodern, technicolor, 3D version of The Great Gatsby is coming out soon, and that it stars some of our greatest living thespians, and that its anachronistic soundtrack is produced by Jay-Z, and I feel okay again. It also means lots of flapper-themed Carey Mulligan editorials, which are nice, too. In the May issue of Vogue, Ms. Mulligan lays to rest any lingering silliness about how she’s not pretty enough to play Daisy Buchanan by donning several heart-stoppingly gorgeous 1920s ensembles in an editorial masterfully shot by Mario Testino. She also says some smart things in the accompanying feature, like “Daisy Buchannan was basically a Kardashian.” (I’m paraphrasing.) That is so true! Carey Mulligan is just the greatest. More
It has definitely become the most anticipated move in a long time, and ever since the release date was pushed from Christmas 2012 to summer 2013 hints have been dropped here and there of what we can expect in The Great Gatsby. It’s been a slow-moving torture, to say the least. More
Baz Luhrmann will not rest until he has added a jazzy soundtrack and frenetic closeups to every significant period of modern Western history. More
