Director and Hollywood scion Sofia Coppola is the latest to enter the non-white wedding dress fray, as she wore custom lavender Azzedine Alaïa to wed Pheonix’s Thomas Mars. What do you think? More
Did you hear this one? Rumors are circulating that an adaptation of Candace Bushnell’s prequel novels to Sex and the City–The Carrie Diaries and Summer in the City–are in the works. No, the prequel won’t star the original ladies as heavily CGI-ed versions of themselves but rather some of Hollywood’s young starlets of the moment: Blake Lively as Samantha, Elizabeth Olsen as Carrie, Emma Roberts as Miranda, and Selena Gomez as Charlotte.

Kate Moss and Jamie Hince got married last weekend and, maybe it’s just me, but I’ve seen a pretty hilarious surge in Kate Moss and Johnny Depp nostalgia on the internet. My response is 1) you’re all a bunch of tasteless jerks and 2) Kate + Pete forevs! …Here’s a gallery of the dudes Kate Moss dated and didn’t marry. Also, congratulations to Kate the Great and Jamie Hince, here’s hoping you two crazy kids can make it work. More
My husband, Andy, is a handsome, well-put together guy. Sure, there are a few quirks. He favors sweatpants with the bottoms cut off and the fray dragging through the dirt. Then there are his wire glasses (think Anthony Edwards in “Revenge of the Nerds”). Still, I didn’t intend to become one of those I love you, you’re perfect, now change, wives. More
Extremely important, probing questions asked ahead. More
Which catwalker tweeted the above (faintly disturbing) photo, presumably of herself, with the caption, “I woke up like this.” Hint: she’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel and she’s not Brazilian. More
Vena Cava let everyone know what Fall 2011 was about before the show even started: the music thundering through Milk Studios was all ’90s, subtly-dancey remixes of Radiohead’s “Creep,” Garbage’s “Stupid Girl,” Luscious Jackson, Elastica, The Breeders. Every guest even received a little grunge-era zine (” ‘Zina Cava,” natch) with images of CK1 ads or Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp in love. Then the studio went dark: the ’90s tunes were replaced by sounds of pouring rain water and flickering lightning effects. The show began and: ’90s like whoa. We’re talking square necklines, bodycon maxis with skintight sleeves, high-waists, crop tops, and at least one polka dot mini that Courtney Love would have worn at her kinderwhore pinnacle. When PJ Harvey started growling “Down By The Water” over the sound system as the models filed out with stringy, unkempt, almost wet-looking hair and elegantly wasted glitter tears, I knew the ladies behind Vena Cava were having an intensely nineties moment. Also: flatforms. More
Sometimes, famous people make bad choices. And sometimes, they make them in ink.
Did you have a shitty first job (or second or third job)? I definitely did. I worked for Mandee, a cheap, semi-crappy, clothing store for teens. I got the job right before I started my senior year of high school, … More
“Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don’t need somebody to say, okay you’re married.” — Johnny Depp, on not getting married to longtime partner Vanessa Paradis.
“When we start the kissing scenes I forget we’re surrounded by a load of people. I actually end up getting really carried away.” — Robert Pattinson, on how he feels doing kissing scenes with Kristen Stewart. More
Some actors believe that they can have other professions: as models, as screenwriters, as directors, as… musicians. Although some actors believe that they are also musicians, yet are actually terrible musicians, some actors actually have musical talent and can do both professions. More
Film in the 80s pretty much rocked. Rocked so much, in fact, that pretty much every good movie is being re-made or sequelized (yes, I made that word up and yes, you wish you did too). Footloose, the re-make, just wrapped filming and now there’s talk of a Top Gun 2. I think we can all agree that Tom Cruise in the 1980s was way more desirable than he is now and so I have little hope for the sequel. But nonetheless, Maverick was a pretty suave guy. Goose was pretty cute too. Now that I think about it, I’d prefer Goose over the boring Maverick because he’s loyal, hilarious and he can totally sing. I love a man who can serenade me. Which got me thinking: what other characters from 80s movies would I want to date? A lot of them are John Hughes creations, but who can blame me? More
Sometimes I lie awake at night wondering how I could love Johnny Depp more. Yes, he was hot in the ’80s on “21 Jump Street,” and frankly, he’s still super hot, and he’s an amazing actor. But I’ve always felt like something was missing, like I just needed one more piece to complete the puzzle of my abject devotion.
And lo, along came Beatrice Delap. More
