I find that if you like one of David Lynch’s films, you really like all of them. His repertoire is interesting in that way — I don’t think there’s anyone who likes, say, “Mulholland Drive” but not “Blue Velvet,” or vice versa. I’m a member of the happily bizarre demographic that enjoys and embraces all things Lynchian. He’s been freaking me out for nearly a decade, ever since I watched “Eraserhead,” and paused the movie to cry a little midway through. Anyway, I digress. The maestro of all things subtly grotesque and foreboding is at it again with a skin-crawling new music video for the album he released last year, Crazy Clown Time. If you aren’t accustomed to Lynch’s particular brand of edgy, nausea-inducing eccentricity, then steer far, far away, because this video is not the ideal opportunity to give it a try. It’s also definitely not safe for work. Any work. Ever.
Salma Hayek may have recently admitted that she was acne-ridden and depressed for much of her 20s, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at her these days. The woman is the very definition of a classic Hollywood glamour girl and she happens to be very dedicated to doing charity and good works, too. She and her multi-billionaire husband, Henri Francois Pinault, attend lots of fashion shows together (it’s very cute!) and seem to provide a very loving home for their daughter Valentina. All in all, Salma turned out pretty damn awesome, despite — or maybe because of — her early-20s trouble. And we love her voluptuous curves and the way she really fills out a fancy gown. After the jump, 1o of our all-time favorite Salma styles.

It’s the simple things in life that I’m grateful for. Like when the universe conspires to produce internet video amazingness. I’m talking about “Honey Boo Boo Child” THE REMIX. Duh. Alana of “Toddlers & Tiaras” was born to be sampled and made into a club track. I can’t believe it took the internet so long to think of it. My congratulations to YouTube user djdarylraymondnyc who created the Holy Grail of remixes. There is no turning back now. Drink your Go-Go Juice, get your ass to da club and holla for that dollah.

James Cameron’s films always make a stylistic impact, from “Titanic”‘s Heart of the Ocean to the blue-skinned, pseudo-feline Na’vi people in “Avatar,” so it’s only natural that someone would eventually arrange to depict his instantly recognizable scenes in a high fashion way. In celebration of “Titanic”‘s 3D re-release, Harper’s Bazaar welcomes us to the world of James Cameron, in which model Hailey Clauson (yes, that Hailey Clauson) poses alongside the director’s most iconic images. I can’t help but feel that it’s a little strange to have Clauson, swathed in a pale pink fur and silk gown, leaning against a model of the Titanic (the tragedy of which, you know, actually happened), but the photo is beautifully striking nonetheless. My favorite, though? The model in a sequined ombre Blumarine dress, her skin fading into CGI as Neytiri looks on. [Harper's Bazaar]
