Have you ever seen the movie “Taken”? It stars Liam Neeson as a tough dad whose daughter gets abducted and sold into sexual slavery by a dude she meets at the airport. I saw it on a plane which seemed highly inappropriate, considering the daughter runs into trouble at the airport, but whatever. This parody of “Taken” is actually exactly what it would be like if my dad starred in the movie, instead of super intense Liam Neeson. [Gorilla Mask]

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, Martin Scorsese’s short for men’s fragrance Bleu de Chanel, David Lynch’s campaign for Dior’s Lady Dior, or the Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de L’Homme ad created by “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky — as you can see, efforts of this ilk have seriously beautiful outcomes.

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. But with the soon-to-be-released movie on the horizon, this is no longer just a surprise bestselling book seen in the hands of women all over the world — it’s become a total sellout. Designers and retailers are taking advantage of consumers’ love for Elizabeth Gilbert’s search for fulfillment and selling everything from fragrances at Fresh to movie paraphernalia at Fred Segal and ABC Home. Now, designer Sue Wong has launched an entire collection of ready-to-wear clothing called “Eat Pray Love by Sue Wong,” which draws inspiration from the plot line in India and Indonesia.

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 his life cut short when he was brutally shot. Behind the murder? Apparently, his wife Patrizia Reggiani set the plot for his early death. While she faced 29 years in prison, the hired assassin earned a life sentence for the murder and Patrizia’s psychic, who contacted the killer, was sent to jail for 25 years.
Sounds like a movie, no? Well, Fox 2000 thinks so, and Angelina Jolie has been approached to play the distressed wife. As for Maurizio? Leonardo DiCaprio is the first choice, but we’ll have to wait to see if that works out. Either way, a Gucci drama will be a welcome addition to the influx of fashion films on movie billboards these days. [Variety]

Lauren Conrad’s debut novel, L.A. Candy still has a cozy spot on the New York Times best-seller list. But if that isn’t sweet enough for you, it looks like the first installment of Lauren’s “fictional” story might go from printed page to silver screen. Oh, yes, LC has been quite the little writer monkey lately, editing her second novel and penning the screenplay adaptation of the first one. It’ll be movie about a girl who moves to LA, gets a reality show, and works in the entertainment industry. In other words, it’s basically a two-hour marathon of “The Hills,” only a fictionalized version of the semi-fictional show. Naturally, it will star Lauren as Jane Roberts—the lead character based on … herself. How meta. [Daily News] Keep reading »
