Cannes Rewards Cosmically Ambitious Movies With Awards

Last night, the Cannes Film Festival concluded with the Robert DeNiro-helmed jury handing out the awards for the best movies and acting on display at the festival.

Gwen Stefani Kills It At Cannes

Oh God, I am so embarrassed. You’ve caught me drooling. I’ve been starring at this picture of Gwen Stefani at the amfAR gala at Cannes and didn’t even realize I was salivating.

Ryan Gosling And Michelle Williams Are A Beautiful Pair

Do I really need to provide an excuse for posting this photo? It has something for everyone and by everyone I mean me and Catherine. Catherine is obsessed (but not in a scary way) with Michelle Williams, and really, if I am being honest, it is against the laws of nature that they are not… More »


Marion Cotillard’s Take On Rockabilly Hair

For last night’s party in Cannes celebrating fancy jewelry company Chopard’s 150th anniversary, Marion Cotillard paired a metallic jumpsuit with a French twist that wound its way up her head, ending in a bang-like bun.
