Milla Jovovich was spotted at the Cannes premiere of the new Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” (Yes! Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as his lover!). Her red carpet combo is pretty daring, even for Milla — showing quite a lot of side … well, not boob exactly, but ribs? Torso? Chest cavity? I don’t even know. I’ve loved Milla ever since she was 15 and modeling for Sassy and claiming that her favorite book was Dostoyevsky’s Crime & Punishment. I mean, isn’t that precious? So yeah, big fan. But this shirt doesn’t look so much like a shirt as a strange apron or something? I mean, Milla can pull it off, I guess, but what do you think? [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
The Cannes Film Festival is where celebs are supposed to bring their A game. Not their A- game, but their A+ game. That’s because they’re not simply on the red carpet at some crappy Hollywood premiere — they’re on the world’s snotty stage! In France! France! And they’re competing against French and Italian starlets in the glamour game, too. As such, these girls have some really intense gown-age in tow — with everything from lacy cut outs, to feathers, to bright colors at their disposal. We survey the successes — and some of the Cannes chaff, after the jump.
I remember first running across Milla Jovovich when she was on the cover of Sassy magazine back in 1991. Her little model bio said that her favorite author (this was when she was 17, mind you) was Dostoevsky, and even at that young age, I knew she was hopelessly pretentious. It seems that she’s aged well — she’s still ridiculously gorgeous — and made a slew of really stupid movies (“Resident Evil,” anyone?). Plus, she’s developed her own fashion line — Jovovich-Hawk — with her friend Carmen Hawk. And here, at a Restoration Hardware event last week, Jovovich proves her sartorial strengths, too. Find out how to get the look, after the jump! Keep reading »
So what’s the difference between saying that the 2012 Pirelli calendar features a boatload of naked models looking smoking hot, and saying the 2012 Pirelli calendar features a crapton of nude models looking friggin’ sexy? Well, according to the art historian Kenneth Clark:
To be naked is to be deprived of our clothes, and the word implies some of the embarrassment most of us feel in that condition. The word “nude,” on the other hand, carries, in educated usage, no uncomfortable overtone. The vague image it projects into the mind is not of a huddled and defenseless body, but of a balanced, prosperous, and confident body: the body re-formed.
And all this is to say that though they may look naked, the girls in the 2012 Pirelli calendar — shot by Mario Sorrenti — are nude. But you don’t really care, do you? You just want to see what Kate Moss looks like without all of her clothes on. Well, fine, so do we. But beware, this gallery is full of boobs (so many boobs!), is pretty full frontal, and entirely NSFW.
Milla Jovovich stars in this ad for Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and apparently no detail was left un-done. This is like an editorial on acid. [Modelinia] Keep reading »
