After more than a year of speculation, a new designer has been chosen to head up Christian Dior. Raf Simons, formerly of Jil Sander, will take over the position vacated by John Galliano after the designer was fired from his role for making anti-semetic remarks in February 2011. Several designers–including Marc Jacobs, Hedi Slimane and jokingly, Kanye West–were allegedly in the running for the position. In February, Simons was fired from Jil Sander suddenly, though some believe a deal had been in the works with Dior for some time. “The first time I heard about the Dior position,” said Simons of his new appointment, “I thought, ‘This feels right.’” [NYT]
It’s hard to tell if Sean Hayes is simply gesturing to JWoww’s breast or actually prodding it, but either way, the expressions in this photo are pretty priceless. I was a little confused as to why Sean Hayes and JWoww would ever be on a red carpet together in the first place, then I saw that it was a premiere for “The Three Stooges” remake, in which Sean plays Larry and JWoww plays herself. Now I’m even more confused. What do you think is going on here?
This past weekend, new “Saturday Night Live” cast member Kate McKinnon made her debut, and by all accounts, was a hit. And that’s a good, especially since rumors persist that key lady cast member Kristin Wiig will be leaving at the end of this season. Here, McKinnon appears for a scant 30 seconds, doing a pitch-perfect impression of Bravo TV’s Tabitha Coffey. And after the jump, check out her impersonation of Penelope Cruz, appearing in a Pantene commercial with host Sofia Vergara. Enjoy! Keep reading »
I’d like to officially say that I’m not responsible for any apoplectic fits you might fall into after watching this video of James Franco — clad in Kenny Powers-esque braids — lip-syncing to Selena Gomez’s “I Love You Like A Love Song.” It seems Mr. Franco, of whom I have a documented intense hatre, is making a new film with Gomez and crappy ’90s agent provocateur Harmony Korine called “Spring Breakers.” So yeah, I’m sure this is going to turn out great.
