Beyoncé arrives fashionably late at this year’s Met Gala.
Fashion’s biggest red carpet took place this week as celebrities, models, and designers descended upon the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art ball. This year’s theme was punk in honour of their new exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture. While that was a fun idea, not that many attendees were able to pull off the punk concept. It was kind of like watching an episode of Project Runway where the episode’s challenge was too far out there for some of the designers to wrap their head around. It indeed resulted in one of the craziest Met Gala red carpets ever with so many spikes and studs paired with outrageous hair and makeup! I kind of have a feeling that next year’s theme won’t be so high concept (your move, Anna Wintour)! So let’s check out who made the cut on our best dressed list. And check back for Part 2: The Blahs and the Oh No’s!
Nina Dobrev can rock on stage and the red carpet in this look, a perfect combo for the gala’s theme.
Loving the studded detail on supermodel Cara Delevingne‘s gown.
Nicole Richie‘s white hair was so jaw dropping and totally badass! The dress might not be punk but the overall look is. Read more…
While Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo won’t be writing a ‘Bridesmaids 2′ , perhaps the upcoming film ‘Bachelorette’ may provide us with the same raunchy humour as ‘Bridesmaids’ did last year.
Based on writer/director Leslye Headland’s Off-Broadway play, ‘Bachelorette’ is about three mean girls (played by Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan) invited to the wedding of the overweight friend (Rebel Wilson) they tormented in high school. Following a night of drugs and alcohol, the three ladies tear the bride’s wedding gown while making fun of her. And in a rush, the trio try to get the gown fixed before anyone finds out.
Making its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January, ‘Bachelorette’ also stars James Marsden, Kyle Bornheimer and Adam Scott. While the film has been met with some negative criticism, we’ll have to judge for ourselves when it comes out on September 7.
But, I just have one question. How did that wedding gown rip so easily? It sounded like it was made out of paper!
I considered starting this post with a series of exclamation points but then came to my senses, not only because it would be grammatically incorrect but also because I don’t want to set my expectations too high for the new movie “On the Road.”
I’ve been waiting for this trailer for so long. The movie, based on Jack Kerouac’s bestselling book of the same name, follows Dean and Sal, members of the Beat Generation. They follow the U.S. roads on their fast-paced search for “It.”
The movie has a star studded cast: Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams and Steve Buscemi. Plus, the trailer includes the best line in the book: “the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
The movie still doesn’t have a release date. All we know for now is that it’s “Coming Soon.” What a tease! Will you see it?
Short snippets of the video have been circulating around on TV and online, and the short-film does not disappoint. Featuring a battle-royale of sorts between the 1986 Beasties (Danny McBridge, Seth Rogan and Elijah Wood) dueling the future Beasties (John C. Reilly, Jack Black and Will Ferrell) and their acid-tripping rampage. Along the way, run in’s with various famous faces: Stanley Tucci, Jason Schwartzman, Susan Sarandon, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Jason Bateman, Amy Poehler, David Cross, Kirsten Dunst, Steve Buscemi, Rashida Jones, Rainn Wilson, Maya Rudolph and Chloe Sevigny. Oh yes, Orlando Bloom drops in for the shenanigans also.
Adam Yauch wrote and directed the footage of the trio’s short film and music video, in connection with his indie film company Oscilloscope Laboratories.
“Normally the song is king and the footage has to kind of bow down to it. With this I flipped it,” he said, explaining how he used sound effects and toyed with the track’s tempo to fit the narrative, such as it is.
The group’s ninth album, “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two,” is due May 3.
Don’t like the Beasties? Well, check out the casting call: Elijah Wood, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, John C. Reilly, Seth Rogen, Jack Black, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, David Cross, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman, Adam Scott, Rainn Wilson, Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny, Alicia Silverstone, Martin Starr, Ted Danson, Rashida Jones, R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, Ad-Rock, Mike D, and MCA.
The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival last month and received a mix of reviews. In the video, we find the Beastie Boys (Elijah Wood, Seth Rogan, Danny McBride) in 1986 the day after the legendary “Fight for Your Right (To Party)” video took place. It is rumoured to be a long-running Saturday Night Live skit from there on out.
Judging by the preview, it appears to be some battle royale between past and present versions of the Beastie Boys. At the same time, it is between comedy of today versus yesterday. Some fascinating double-entendre, I do say.
Ch-ch-check it out!
According to sources close to the young star, 18-year-old Logan Lerman has been handpicked to replace Maguire as Peter Parker in the next Spiderman, reports The Cinema Source.
Those who have seen Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief will recognize the young Californian when he slips on the red and blue uniform in what is said to be a prequel to the Spiderman saga. Marc Webb, best known for directing indie love cheese 500 Days of Summer, will spearhead the new installment in this silver screen adaptation of the Marvel comic classic.
James Jimenez, 35, was convicted Friday of criminal trespass for breaking into Kirsten Dunst’s New York City hotel room in 2007 and stealing $15,000 worth of handbags and electronics, reports E! News. While the misdemeanor could send Jimenez to jail for up to a year, the jury was deadlocked when it came to charges of burglary.
Jarrod Beinerman, who was also involved in the incident, pleaded guilty to attempted burglary last year and is serving four years in prison. If convicted of this charge, Jimenez could face up to 15 years behind bars.
Dunst, who had been in New York City at the time of the theft shooting How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, testified about what was missing from her SoHo Grand suite. Simon Pegg, her costar in the film, also testified that his cell phone, camera and iPod were stolen from the room. Some of the stolen items were eventually returned to Dunst after the suspects were caught.
