For the past year, Paris-based art director David Redon has been contributing a few hours a week to a unique hobby: Photoshopping modern celebrities into vintage advertisements. “I like the shift between vintage and modern pop culture,” he says, “because these days the border between art and commercial is very small, and artists work their images like brands do.” Redon’s handiwork lets us see what it might look like for Don Draper to design an ad campaign starring Rihanna, Drake, Beyonce, or Daft Punk. Click on the Riri/Drake ad above to check out a few more of Redon’s designs that will make you wish “Pharrell’s Happy Toothpaste” actually existed. [Design Taxi]

Style Stealer: Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s Stripes & Skinnies

Style Stealer: Jenna Dewan-Tatum's Stripes & Skinnies

As I have mentioned a million times lately, I reallllllly miss California and am contemplating a move to Los Angeles. (Don’t worry, I’m not bailing on The Frisky — I could do my job from a yurt in the jungle, so long as there’s wifi.) Mostly I’d be going for the sunshine, the more affordable rent, the medical marijuana, the beaches and the tacos, but I also have a deep desire to dress exactly like Jenna Dewan-Tatum, above, at least 300 days out of the year. Stripes, army green skinny cargos, cool shades and flat sandals are my JAM. Get the look yourself (though, depending on where you live, you probably can’t wear this outfit every day) with the pieces listed after the jump!

Rob Lowe Talks Pretty People Problems

“There’s this unbelievable bias and prejudice against quote-unquote good-looking people, that they can’t be in pain or they can’t have rough lives or be deep or interesting. They can’t be any of the things that you long to play as an actor. I’m getting to play those parts now and loving it. When I was a teen idol, I was so goddamn pretty I wouldn’t have taken myself seriously. … [T]here’s a historical bias that good-looking people are not funny.”

Cindy Crawford isn’t the only attractive person who has suffered from the stereotype that all pretty people are dumb. The very pretty Rob Lowe opened up to The New York Times Magazine about his second memoir, in which he describes the difficulties he has faced trying to be a ‘serious actor’ because of his Neutrogena-commercial good looks. Again, it’s hard to feel bad for someone who is essentially complaining about how attractive he is … but you know, I kinda get it. It sucks to be stereotyped and put in a box, no matter what that box is. Rob Lowe happens to be a great actor: he has done everything from “The West Wing” to “Behind The Candelabra” to “Parks & Recreation” to made-for-TV movies on every channel. It’s obvious the guy has range and he’s easy on the eyes. [New York Times Magazine] [Image via WENN]

Johnny Depp Confirms He & Amber Heard Are Not Expecting A Baby

  • “Expecting what? A child? Good god, what do you think I am, a savage?” That has to be the best-ever reaction to a pushy reporter’s probe about a pregnancy rumor. Johnny Depp informed “The Today Show”‘s Savannah Guthrie that while he is wearing a man-gagement ring, his engagement to Amber Heard is “not a shotgun affair.” [Celebuzz]
  • The woman who rejected a 25-year-old Jon Hamm on the TV dating show “The Big Date” back in 1996 said she has never seen an episode of “Mad Men” and she’d reject him again today. FOOLISH WOMAN. [TMZ]
  • Lilly Ghalichi from “Shahs Of Sunset” is engaged to her boyfriend Dhar Mann after two months of dating, she announced. Mazel tov! [US Weekly]

Johnny Depp Explains His Man-gagement Ring On “Letterman”

Johnny Depp Explains His Man-gagement Ring On "Letterman"
"Why is a grown man wearing a woman's engagement ring?"

I’m still a little bummed that Johnny Depp broke up with Vanessa Paradis and is now engaged to 27-year-old Amber Heard, but I do think it’s pretty rad that he’s rocking a blingin’ man-gagement ring. Johnny stopped by “The Late Show With David Letterman” and explained that the reason why he’s rocking a “woman’s engagement ring” because it was too big for Heard. Instead of getting it sized down, Johnny did what bohemian movie stars can do and bought Amber another ring (with a bigger rock) and kept this one for himself. I would expect nothing less from a man who likes to wear five scarves at once. [via Refinery 29]

Style Stealer: Emmy Rossum’s Matchy-Matchy Moment

Emmy Rossum Style Stealer

I’m normally very anti-matchy when it comes to fashion. I’ll take a clash over an exact color/print match any day. Even so, this Emmy Rossum ensemble, which is about as matchy-matchy as one can get, has totally stolen my heart. I love the girly accents (lace and ballet flats!) and all that mint green (or is it baby blue? or seafoam green? let’s go with minty baby seafoam blue) works so well with her heather grey skirt. Want to steal this look for yourself? Get all the matchy-matchy pieces after the jump! Keep reading »

Awkward: John Edwards Allegedly Got Turned Away From A Funeral

john-edwards-040414

It just gets worse for John Edwards, doesn’t it? First he got busted cheating on his wife and siring a love child. Then his mistress Rielle Hunter, with whom he made a sex tape, turned out to be cuckoo bananas. And now the family of the woman whose presidential campaign donation he allegedly used to financially support Hunter allegedly turned him away from her funeral. Page Six reports that the family of heiress Bunny Mellon, who donated  $700,000 to the Edwards campaign in 2008, were none too pleased when Edwards and his adult daughter Cate showed up to her recent funeral in Virginia. “He was barred from entering,” the gossip page reports, citing NY Social Diary blogger David Patrick Columbia. After he was turned away, Edwards and his daughter watched the funeral onscreen with the “overflow crowd” at a nearby location. He then showed up at the cemetery and “was working the crowd near the graveside after the service,” according to Columbia. While there may be a bit of editorializing on the gossip reporters’ part, do any of us have a difficult time imagining John Edwards fielding dirty looks while he hobnobs with a bunch of old rich folks dressed in black? Ick. [Page Six] [Image via Getty]

25-Year-Old Jon Hamm Promises A Foot Fetishist A “Fabulous Foot Massage” On Cancelled Dating Show

Forgive The Hair, It Was 1996

You know that thing where you feel really, really embarrassed for someone you don’t even know? Where you cringe watching what’s happening to them? Where you squirm instead and think Oh my God I feel so bad for you that this exists? That’s how I feel about this 1996 clip of Jon Hamm on a dating show called “The Big Date.” Self-professed “foot fetishist” Mary needs a “sexy, hot man” who knows how to give a good foot massage.  ”Jon” doesn’t just give a good foot massage, he gives a fabulous foot massage. “The Big Date” has been canceled. But clips of Jon Hamm promising an evening of “fabulosity” live on the Internet forever. [YouTube via BuzzFeed]

Shirley Manson Is Sick Of “Over-Sexualized Imagery,” Ready For More “Female Provocateurs”

“I feel like there has been such a dearth of female provocateurs over the last decade. It’s been wonderful to watch women dominate the pop charts — to truly dominate — but unfortunately we’ve had to pay a price for that kind of success, which is that the less malleable female musician has really been pushed aside. We haven’t heard a lot from women coming from more of a “punk” ethos, for lack of a better term. So I’m excited to see an underground swell of girls with a lot of attitude and a lot to say. They’re using their intellect as opposed to their assholes. I’m so sick of over-sexualized imagery right now. When women first took it and ran with it it felt very exciting, but now it feels sort of tedious. I want to hear what women have to say as opposed to what they look like in a bikini.”

Shirley Manson spoke to Styleite recently about her favorite makeup brands (MAC, obviously) but also to chat about women in music who inspire her right now. I’m not too surprised that she’s so over the boobs squirting whipped cream and the naked rides on wrecking balls in the current pop landscape. But have hope, Shirley! Go out for all-black mani-pedis with Lorde, or whatever it is that “female provocateurs” do for fun. [Styleite] [Image via Getty]
