Last night was the premiere of “The Hunger Games,” what will be arguably one of the biggest movies of the year. It’s expected to gross more than $100 million this weekend, given the popularity of the book franchise, and turn Jennifer Lawrence from indie sensation to household name. Predictably, there were tons of celebs in attendance, some who held court in sartorial glory, and others who missed the mark. Click through to see who fared well in “The Hunger Games” Battle Royale.
One of the most important aspects of goal-setting is writing them down, but I think it’s even better to go a step further–turn your goals into pretty pictures, interactive lists, and tactile objects and you’ll be much more motivated to make them happen. Here are five simple and crafty ways to help organize, envision, and manifest all your goals, from your daily to-do list to your biggest dreams in life…
Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, was very busy this weekend … thinking of ideas for a possible sequel to the book. So what is Patrick Bateman up to nowadays? Ellis took to Twitter to share his darkly frantic brainstorm. For starters, Patrick wants to have a threesome with Rihanna and Chris Brown. Disturbed? It gets so much more twisted. Hint: The Kardashian sisters, Kris Humphries, Chris Martin, Lindsay Lohan, David Beckham, Gavin Rossdale, and Katy Perry’s trainer are all involved. And lots and lots of murder. Oh, and if you didn’t figure it out from the original, Patrick Bateman is gay. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. I’m frightened. Social networking and celebrity culture would only make Patrick more psychotic, it seems. If that’s even possible. Click through to see Ellis’ highly disturbing Patrick Batemen musings. [Buzzfeed]

Another day, another set of leaked nude photos. This is becoming a major trend! The latest to join Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn and Scarlett Johansson is “Glee”‘s Heather Morris. A number of naked pictures appear to have been hacked from her cell phone. Although she hasn’t commented on the photos yet, this isn’t the first time the celeb has made nude news. Back in 2010, naughty images of the actress surfaced and she admitted to posing in her birthday suit in her pre-fame days. “It’s not something I’m ashamed of,” she commented at the time. “Everybody should do tasteful beautiful nudes so when you get older you’re gonna be like, ‘Oh that’s when my body looked so great!’ ” The latest batch of nudes appear to be a lot less … tasteful, but she still looks amazing. Anyway, let this be yet another lesson to us all; destroy those suckers once they’ve served their purpose. [NY Daily News]

Have you heard about BB cream? It’s the latest buzzword in beauty, and for good reason. Any product can claim to change your life, but this one actually will. “BB” stands for Blemish Balm, a product that’s been popular on the Asian market for years but has only recently presented itself in the States and Europe. It was originally formulated by a German dermatologist as a treatment to help patients of laser facial surgery soothe and protect the resulting extremely sensitive skin while imparting light coverage. Somehow it found its way to Asia, where it became increasingly celebrated, before it was brought to other countries. BB cream is like a primer plus tinted moisturizer on crack, if crack was skincare benefits and sun protection and made foundation totally superfluous. While before it could only be accessed through questionable Korean dealers on Amazon (I went there), big American brands are now cashing in on this in-demand beauty booster, and I couldn’t be more excited. If you haven’t sampled a BB cream yet, you must. Once you give it a try, you’ll never go back to thick, cake foundation. They come at all different price points and there’s bound to be one that suits you.

Paris Fashion Week is my favorite for many reasons, not all of which are a direct result of my all-encompassing Francophilia. I love the grandiose clothes marched down the catwalk, the sense of total, no-holds-barred luxury, and, well, the refined French-ness of it all. It also helps that many of the most iconic designers show there. Whatever the reason, I haunt Style.com for eight days, clicking furiously until the latest coverage appears, then I drink it all in with my eyes wide and mathematically assess my chances of wedding an impossibly wealthy, possibly corrupt oligarch who has the means to finance all of my wildest fashion dreams. Just kidding! As someone whose personal mantra is “think rich, look poor,” ballroom confections aren’t my thing. What I do covet straight off the runway is the beauty. It certainly helps that models are beautiful to begin with, but the makeup artists who serve them have all but mastered the art of taking pretty perfect canvases and turning them into flawless works of art. Here are my favorite beauty looks, hot off the runway. Tell me — which of these faces would you like to try yourself? [all images via Style Bistro]
