Rosario Dawson is my friggin’ dream girl. She has one of those crazy serendipitous discovery stories — Larry Clark and Harmony Korine, who collaborated on “Kids,” literally saw her sitting on her front stoop in the Lower East Side and cast her in the film immediately. From there Rosario went on to star in big-budget flicks like “He Got Game,” “Josie and the Pussycats,” and, uh, a ton of other movies. She has 6 films coming out this year alone! Since Rosario is killing it right now (also, always), let’s take a walk down memory lane and check out her 10 best red (or blue/grey/green/what have you) carpet looks of all time!
Another shocking move in the never-ending game of fashion industry musical chairs: Nicola Formichetti is out at Mugler! His departure (a “mutual decision”) is, as they say, Kind Of A Big Deal. The influential “fashion director” singlehandedly resurrected the French fashion house in his almost 3 years as creative director, transforming the staid old brand best known for its perfume into a trailblazer for innovative, avant-garde fashion.
Formichetti has his high-profile clients, particularly Lady Gaga, to thank for much of his monumental success — Formichetti has functioned as stylist to the pop icon since 2009… as in, he is responsible for Gaga’s infamous meat dress, meat-kini, and her male alter-ego Jo Calderone. In fact, it was Gaga who persuaded him to accept the job at Mugler — the floundering brand was in the market for a “multicultural young talent,” which they found in Formichetti. He’s also credited with “discovering” fully-tattooed Zombie Boy Rick Genest.
Any guesses as to where Formichetti will land next? Sources are saying Diesel, but I think it’s just as likely that we’ll see the young designer spin off into his own line. We wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up! [Fashionista]
Year after year, the look for spring and summer involves a requisite “pop of color.” Lipstick, liner, nails, what have you, it’s all about looking fresh and “natural” with a touch of vibrant contrast. I know full well that the absolute last thing you want to do come rising temperatures is put on more makeup… so why not try a pigmented cream blush on top of your SPF 30+ tinted moisturizer? Unlike powder blush, creams don’t emphasize oiliness or texture, and they amp up the glow factor without fail — and, for the sweaty-faced, they help to make it look like you just got back from a run instead of just stood on the subway for 5 minutes. Give one of our favorites a try; you might just like ‘em enough to keep them in rotation year-round! Keep reading »
I am physically incapable of containing my excitement for the new “The Great Gatsby” movie. I want to YELL ABOUT IT. It’s bound to be divisive, of course, but “Gatsby” is one of my favorite books of all time, and considering the first Hollywood adaptation was a poorly-acted flop, I really think F. Scott Fitzgerald’s magnum opus deserves an epic redo. And from what we’ve seen so far in the teasers, Baz Luhrmann’s version will be nothing if not epic — seriously, this brand-new trailer, featuring new music from Beyonce (covering Amy Winehouse!), Lana Del Rey, and Florence + the Machine, gives me the goddamn chills. The anachronistic contemporary but somehow appropriate soundtrack, the gorgeous beaded Prada dresses and ridiculous diamonds, the fantastical settings… I’m foaming at the mouth. Watch it, then watch it again, and maybe a third time for good measure. [YouTube]
I know you don’t mean any harm, girlfriend of 10-year-old Romeo Beckham, but girl, for someone who in the future may want to make a habit of being photographed out in public with celebrity offspring, let me tell you, you are messing with the wrong crowd. [Photo: INFDaily]
Oh, Ireland Baldwin, there you go winning the genetic lottery and all. Alec Baldwin‘s daughter signed to big-time modeling agency IMG just last month, which definitively makes the 17-year-old a fashion fixture to keep your eye on. Here she is at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares 10th Anniversary Celebration, where she rubbed elbows with the likes of Emmy Rossum, Chrissy Teigen, and Cyndi Lauper (and, um, Kelly Bensimon). This girl is so beautiful it’s almost stupid… and she’s six foot two. That is ridiculous. I fully, 100 percent stalk Ireland on all social media, and she seems like a really, really cool person. She handles all of her inevitable Twitter bullying like a serious champ. Plus she has a gorgeous boyfriend, whose name is Slater Trout, just in case you were wondering. I’m a little girl crush-y. Consider me on official Ireland Watch from here on out, okay? Slater Trout, too. Slater Trout.
*This is in reference to that infamous voicemail Alec Baldwin left for his then-11-year-old daughter, just FYI.
Now that is a sandwich I would very much like to be right in the middle of. I don’t even care if it’s in the name of David Lynch‘s weird, cult-y transcendental meditation “foundation” — hell, I’ll join the damn cult. Just let me in there!
I missed April Fools’ Day yesterday, so all I will say is this: I’m super pregnant, just like Lindsay Lohan. Except I’m not, because — drum roll please, and yes, there will be a reception following the service — I got my period this weekend for the first time in three years. Three years! Granted, I was on a certain pill … and I’ve since gone back on that pill, because I forgot about cramps. Life lessons, my friends. I also joined OkCupid because I’m afraid of dying alone, so yeah, all in all I had a pretty weird weekend. I’ll tell you about it another time. Over cocktails. Anyway, as you can see, we’ve got a full Frisky house for ya on this sunny (yet quite, and I mean quite, brisk) day…
I subscribe to the style theory of “all black everything.” I’m pretty religious about it most of the year, but come summer, my wardrobe tends to lighten up. (Maybe some dark grey?) My shoes, on the other hand, are nothin’ but black. Black boots, black sandals, black heels — why buy anything else? Black is classic, goes with everything, never gets dirty, and black leather shoes last for years. They’re practically an investment, but that doesn’t mean you should have to cash out over $200 for a solid pair of cool-ass black sandals. Check out these 10 pairs, and wonder why you ever thought it would be a good idea to buy something in beige suede.
Here are all of the things I know about Olga Kurylenko: she’s Russian, she’s dating Danny Huston, and she has the type of face that I would like to wear as my own. Also, she’s starring in a new movie with Tom Cruise, which I won’t be seeing. My criteria for movies is, “is Tom Cruise in this movie?” If the answer is yes, I won’t see it. Sorry, everyone who’s ever been in a movie with Tom Cruise. Including you, Olga.
But anyway, I’m almost always crying about how celebrities don’t wear nearly enough Elie Saab. I don’t get it — every single one of his dresses is to die for, and on the occasion that someone does wear Saab’s designs, they look like this. Impeccable! So: if you’re famous, have ever been famous, or may become famous, and you’re reading this, WEAR ELIE SAAB. DO IT FOR ME. [Photo: WENN]
