Anonymous Street Artist Wins TED Award For His Moving Public Work

Anonymous street artist JR was awarded a $100,000 TED Prize this week for his impressive public art endeavors. JR makes intensely large photographs, which he then wheat pastes into a variety of locales, transforming his surroundings. The photo above is from an installation he did in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. After the jump, check out a video of the artist’s “Women Are Heroes” work, which was pasted up in Paris, and features blown-up images of women during wartime. The piece turns the typical male gaze on its head by featuring the eyes of women peering over the water. The wheat pastes were left up even as they deteriorated. Keep reading »

Anne Hathaway Knows That Good Fashion Comes To Those Who Wait

Do you resist dressing a certain way because of being younger? In Vogue‘s profile of Anne Hathaway, the actress admits: “I’ve never seen a Kelly bag or a Birkin bag in person … and at my age, it’s about time.” Anne is of course talking about two of the most famous handbag styles from Hermès. (You might remember the Kelly from “Le Divorce” and the Birkin as the bag that “SATC”‘s Samantha used Lucy Liu’s name to get.) These types of handbags are iconic and, naturally, extremely expensive. As Anne tries on both styles in the Hermès store, she says, “I think the Birkin would suit me more. As gorgeous as the Kelly is, I think it’s something that you mature into.”

Have you ever thought of clothes or accessories like this? Imagined certain power pieces that you would buy at certain ages? Or envisioned how you’d dress in your 50s or 60s? [Vogue via People StyleWatch] Keep reading »

What’s Up With CGI-Enhanced Nudity?

The perverts of America are freaking out because Jessica Alba‘s recent nude scene in “Machete” was apparently CGI-created. Instead of getting naked for the role, which Alba has steadfastly resolved to avoid at all costs, she wore white underwear which were then digitally removed in post-production. Judging from the before and after pictures, they took a couple pounds of flesh off as well. But people aren’t freaking out because of the chop-shop job on her tummy; it seems that people feel duped for believing they had actually seen Alba naked. Personally, I don’t understand why they care so much since so much of what we see in movies are body doubles anyway. And as Entertainment Weekly pointed out, there are only four options if an actress doesn’t want to be nude—cut the scene, wear a bra all the time like Carrie Bradshaw, use CGI, get a body double to fake it, or hire a new actress. And of the options, I think I might be on Team CGI, especially if the nudity is actually necessary for the role, which it totally wasn’t for “Machete.” If you’re looking for gratuitous nudity, why not go faux? [EW]

We’ve scrounged up some other CGI nude moments in movie history to continue the debate. Keep reading »
