Julianne Moore is set to play Sarah Palin in “Game Change,” the HBO movie about the 2008 presidential election. But a few years before, she was in line to play a different female figure in the race—Hillary Clinton. Apparently, Julianne was cast as Clinton in HBO’s “The Special Relationship.” But when she had to back out to film “The Kids Are All Right,” a movie which netted her a Golden Globe nod, the role went to Hope Davis. But never fear—here is her makeup test shot. This makes us feel super confident that Julianne can check her fierce redheadedness and go politico. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Julianne Moore will be playing Sarah Palin in ‘Game Change,’ an upcoming HBO movie about the 2008 election.
Palin stopped by “Hannity” (weekdays, 9 p.m. ET on Fox News) where she was asked what she thought of Moore portraying her.
“Well, I’m all about job creation, and I guess I could provide some of the gals who pretend like they’re me some job security,” Palin said. “I would ask, though, if they’re of the mind of spreading the wealth around that perhaps they could spring for one of my kids’ sets of braces or something, as they capitalize on pretending to be me.” Read more… Keep reading »

At long last, we get to see designer Tom Ford‘s much discussed and totally secreted away collection for spring 2011. Six years ago, Ford resigned from his dual post as creative director of Gucci and YSL, leaving ’70s-loving ladies filled with sadness. In the interim, Ford created his own brand, hawking fragrances and eye wear, opened a series of menswear retail stores, and made the critically acclaimed “A Single Man,” for which leading man Colin Firth was nominated for an Academy Award. But it wasn’t until this September that Ford returned to women’s wear with a fashion show that only a select few were allowed to see, which featured models like Beyonce and Julianne Moore, and from which photographers were barred, save one. Now, Vogue has the first images of the collection and a profile of the designer, who’s committed to helming his brand his way. [Vogue] Keep reading »

Julianne Moore is part a of a very small group of famous women who act and dress their age and look great doing it. She usually gives me hope about getting older. So when I saw her on the cover of The New York Times’ spring issue of T magazine, I couldn’t help but feel a twinge of sadness. The usually classy Moore is made up like a poor man’s geisha … Or a newbie starlet who has little choice but to deal with every stupid idea a magazine has just to get the publicity. Take the jump for more evidence of T doing Moore a disservice in the classic beauty department. [Live Journal] Keep reading »
