7 Majorly Anxiety-Producing Movies

According to prominent horror critics, the things that scare us as a culture usually have a lot to do with whatever we repress and suppress.

Prada Produces An Aesthetically Pleasing Short Film Directed By Roman Polanski

High fashion films have a track record of being consistently gorgeous. I'm not talking about, say, "The Devil Wears Prada" (though I will never not argue that it's one of the best movies ever), but rather the type of high-brow videos that result from collaborations between fashion houses and illustrious directors. Take, for instance, Marti…

H&M’s “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” Collection Is As Much of a Dystopian Nightmare as You’d Expect

So, let me get this straight: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is about a woman attempting to outrun a sadistic rapist and solve a murder, so naturally you'd want to design a line of clothing around her look.

Say what you will about the choices Diablo Cody has made as a result of her fame from "Juno," but the woman takes risks — huge risks — with what she puts out there.

“Eat, Pray, Love”‘s Excessive Sartorial Attention

I'll admit it. I was a HUGE fan of Eat, Pray, Love when the book was originally released, and even suggested it to all of my girlfriends, aunts, cousins, and extended family members.

Most think of Gucci and see interlocking G’s, horsebit hobo bags, or that red and green stripe. But there’s an entire sordid past of the Gucci family, which Tom Ford and Frida Giannini have nothing to do with – and it’s not about design. In 1995, the heir to the Gucci throne, Maurizio Gucci, had…

Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” Is Going To be Amazing

Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know "The Nightmare Before Christmas" by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."
