Piggy Hall

Well, la-di-da. Piggy Hall and Kermit Singer take a stroll on the beach a la “Annie Hall.” I don’t think I could approve of this any more. [Techno Hell] Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: “Annie Hall”

Diane Keaton’s look in “Annie Hall” is so iconic that even decades after the Woody Allen film premiered, her look is still wearable. There’s a reason menswear-inspired fashions for women is a cyclical style, after all. The “Annie Hall” look gives an air of confidence without looking as if you’re trying too hard. Here’s how you can get the look today. Keep reading »

Why Diane Keaton Is My Single Lady Role Model

“La-di-da,” said Diane Keaton in “Annie Hall,” sticking her hands in her menswear trousers and fiddling with her fedora. “La-di-da.”

I was in my early 20s, a naïve actress who had just moved from New York City to Los Angeles to jumpstart my career, the first time I saw the classic, semi-autobiographical movie about the relationship between Woody Allen and Diane Keaton. I watched as Diane/Annie described her Midwestern childhood, met with her analyst, and made out with Woody Allen before moving on to a Hollywood record exec.

Woody Allen Beats Off American Apparel

American Apparel is known for perverse ads which feature their scantily dressed female employees. Although, CEO Dov Charney has already been sued by some of his former employees, he believes in equal opportunity, or so he said in a deposition tape, “I frequently drop my pants to show people my new product.” Vomit. But now someone with a little more to his name is suing American Apparel. Woody Allen, who was featured in a few ads in 2007, including a billboard in New York City, is suing the company for using his image. If you’re afraid to see Woody bent over wearing nothing but a neon g-string and some tube socks, fear not, the ad is actually just of his face — a shot of him dressed up like a Hasidic Jew from his classic romantic comedy Annie Hall. According to our friend Nachshon, who translated, the ad’s slogan reads in Yiddish, “The Holy Rebbie,” which essentially means Woody Allen is Dov Charney’s perv hero. Allen isn’t honored, and just slapped American Apparel with a $10 million dollar lawsuit. While Charney might get away with the ads by calling them “parodies”, it’s comical that someone found a way to make Woody Allen feel violated. [Ad Week]
