Gatsby is always a great style inspiration, so is Leo DiCaprio.
Prom season is coming up and most likely there are some guys out there who still haven’t even given a thought to what they will be wearing that night. No worries. It’s usually thought that guy’s have it easier than girls when deciding what to wear for prom, which is partly true. But don’t discount the importance of a guy’s sartorial choice for prom night. Some guy’s might feel boxed in when picking a prom look when they feel the need to match their prom date’s outfit, or they might get roped into wearing their dad’s/brother’s/some distant relative’s hand-me-downs because it’s cheap and easy. But don’t fret as there are a variety of men’s looks to choose from.
The famously glitzy Cannes Film Festival in France, which is currently taking place, is a good place to start when deciding on prom looks.
Leonardo DiCaprio & Tobey Maguire
You can’t go wrong with the traditional simple black tuxedo. When in doubt get a tux. The classic look stands alone and will pair nicely with whatever your prom date is wearing. When choosing the traditional black tuxedo little touches can go a long way as seen in Leo’s look, he’s wearing a three-piece suit with black satin lining which helps set himself apart from The Great Gatsby co-star Tobey. Another important thing to remember is fit! Maguire’s tux is tailored fit to his body, the fit is perfection. So if you think of busting out your dad’s ol’ tux make sure you get it tailored, otherwise you’ll look like a kid trying to play dress up.

Sacha Baron Cohen will apparently do anything to sell tickets for his new movie The Dictator. Including murder. Dressed as his character Admiral General Aladeen, he was seen “killing” Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis in Cannes.
It was all fun and games at first and it looked like the duo were just fooling around. He showed her his goods and she took photos with her digital camera. The next thing you know, she disappears and the General throws a body bag into the water from his yacht. It’s unclear whether the act was revenge for her kicking him in the nuts or if it was even her in the body bag. Either way, the pictures are irrefutable proof.
With all these publicity stunts I feel like I’ve already seen the movie. Sometimes they’re hilarious but save something for the screen won’t you?
After months of speculation, it has been confirmed that Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams are dating.
The actor said yesterday at a Cannes event:
“Yeah, we are together. She’s talented, intelligent, beautiful. She’s warm and friendly. She’s very supportive, and very kind, very funny. She makes me laugh a lot … Hopefully, I have some of those qualities as well.”
McAdams’ last high-profile romance was with actor Ryan Gosling.
Congrats to them – they seem like a happy, normal couple. Both are relatively low key, so I think it will turn out good.
Before getting a new passport and going back to the States to see a judge, Lindsay Lohan was in Cannes, France, and was forced to see something entirely different: the butt of King Khan.
According to CHARTattack.com, the band The Almighty Defenders (made up of Khan and the Black Lips) recently performed at a party during the Cannes Film Festival (held May 12 to 23 in the southern France city). Photos from the party have shown up showing Khan and Lohan at the party.
In the first photo, Khan’s shorts are halfway down his legs and he is bent over in front of Lohan. Lohan is covering her face, probably from laughter (although possibly from tears). In the second photo, Khan’s bare butt is in full view and Lohan is turned away from it. You can see the photos on Vice.
Catch Khan, his butt, and the rest of The Almighty Defenders here:
May 26 Paris, France @ La Machine Paris
May 27 Limoges, France @ CCM John Lennon
May 28-30 Barcelona, Spain @ Parc Del Forum (Primavera Sound Festival)
June 30 Calgary, AB @ Sled Island Music Festival
Oct. 9 Austin, TX @ Zilker Park (Austin City Limits Music Festival)
TMZ is reporting that Lindsay Lohan is on a plane headed back to the United States.
This past week an arrest warrant was issued for Lindsay after she missed a court date. The actresses’ lawyer appeared on her behalf in court explaining that Lindsay’s passport had been stolen, leaving her stranded in Cannes, France. The Judge unfortunately didn’t buy the story.
Lohan will be in court Monday to appear in front of the Judge. However she did enjoy her last night in Cannes with a stroll, along with every celebrity photographer in France.
Lindsay Lohan missed her appearance in a Los Angeles courtroom claiming her passport was stolen in Cannes, France. However Judge Marsha Revel isn’t buying the story, according to TMZ.
Turns out Revel’s husband runs a large travel agency, and knows the ins and outs of temporary passports very well. She believes that Lohan could have easily gotten a temporary passport.
Things aren’t looking good for Lindsay right now!
Lohan is due in court this morning in regards to her probation progress report, however the pop star is claiming her passport has been stolen, leaving her stranded in Cannes, France.
TMZ also reports that Lohan hasn’t attended the required number of alcohol rehabilitation classes. Lindsay claims the instructor made it “uncomfortable” for her to attend the required number of classes because she claims the instructor was texting that she wanted to hang out with her. She had 3 more courses that had to be completed by today in order to comply with her probation.
Judge Marsha Revel will most likely issue a warrant for Lohan’s arrest today.
Few movies fit into the dark comedy, horror film and psychodrama category at the same time. “Thirst” is one of them. The latest film by South Korean director Chan-wook Park won the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival but beware, it’s not your typical vampire movie.
This was my first time seeing a Chan-wook Park film and it’ll probably be my last — not because it’s a bad movie per se, it’s just not my type. Let’s face it, just like people have preferences over blondes and brunettes, movie goers have genre preferences and gore is not one of mine. So if you love blood (and not just blood, but blood with plot), “Thirst” is definitely for you.
The film tells the story of Sang-hyun (played by South Korea’s Song-kang Ho), a priest who values life enough to risk his own by volunteering for a secret vaccine development project meant to destroy a deadly virus.
Of course, the virus takes hold of the priest and they’re forced to transfuse blood into Sang-hyun. It just so happens that the blood was infected, leading the priest to turn into a vampire.
“Thirst” starts to pick up when Sang-hyun bumps into a sickened childhood friend and his family, including his friend’s wife Tae-ju (Kim Ok-vin), who asks for the priest’s help in escaping her life. So the once goody-two-shoe priest finds himself embarking into a world of sexual pleasure, committing the Seven Deadly Sins.
The world may get its first look at Quentin Tarantino’s WWII epic, “Inglourious Basterds,” next month.
Insiders told Variety that the director has accepted an offer to screen the Brad Pitt-starring drama in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
Cannes organizers will announce the festival lineup on April 23, with this year’s event set to run from May 13 to 24.
Madonna will receive honourary citizenship to Malawi for her good will work there, reports Hello magazine.
Her adopted son, David Banda, is from Malawi. She funds several orphanages and is in the process of opening a girls’ school near the capital.
“We are proud as a country to be associated with such a megastar,” said Billy Kaunda, the deputy tourism and culture minister of Malawi. “She will have freedom of all cities here. She won’t be bothered with issues like visas and other limitations.”
Madonna also filmed a documentary on Malawi called “I Am Because We Are,” which premiered at the Cannes film festival.
Now that she’s engaged to Canadian hunk Ryan Gosling, Scarlett Johansson may be becoming too big for her britches.
Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper reports that Johansson was absent from the premier of her new Woody Allen film at Cannes because the studio refused to meet her ridiculous demands.
She insisted that her $7,800-a-day make-up artist be paid to accompany her. She also refused to stay at the same hotel where Allen and co-star Penelope Cruz were staying, instead saying she required a hotel 30 miles outside of Cannes.
An executive close to the film said that “it wasn’t acceptable that Scarlett would be having to come in from that distance every day, most likely turning up late and it would have thrown schedules into a lot of confusion.”
Allen, normally quite enamoured with Johansson, is said to be annoyed that she’s not being a team player.
Johansson’s rep blamed conflicting schedules for Johansson’s absence.
The film, “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” which features a kiss between Johansson and Cruz, received a ten-minute standing ovation at the festival.
British director Ken Loach won the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize, the Palme d’Or, on Sunday. His film, “The Wind that Shakes the Barley,” beat out 19 other contenders at the festival in France.
The movie stars Cillian Murphy and traces Ireland’s struggle for independence, recounting the early days of the IRA in the 1920s.
Loach, 69, has said the film is also a critique of the U.S.-led war on Iraq.
“Maybe if we tell the truth about the past, maybe we tell the truth about the present,” he said in his acceptance speech.
Despite seven previous nominations for the award, this was the first time Loach won the Palme d’Or.
The prize jury was led by Chinese director Wong Kar-wai and included actors Tim Roth, Monica Belluci and Samuel L. Jackson (“Snakes on a Plane”!!!).
The eagerly anticipated movie version of The Da Vinci Code will open the 59th Festival de Cannes on May 17, says the Hollywood Reporter.
That’s two days before the film opens worldwide.
It will be screened out of competition at Cannes, but it’s still a project of impeccable pedigree. Directed by Ron Howard, based on Dan Brown’s best-selling novel, and partly shot in the Louvre Museum, the film boasts an international cast featuring Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Jean Reno, Ian McKellen and Alfred Molina.
The novel has been criticized by the Roman Catholic Church as well as scholars for having no historical basis. That didn’t stop more than 30 million copies from flying off the bookshelves.
Director-producer-actor Howard first came to Cannes with his 1988 film Willow. His A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar in 2002.
