It’s Christmas Day, which isn’t just a huge movie day for non-Christians, it’s also where Santa-loving folk go to distract themselves from the postpartum present depression. Thankfully, on such an occasion where everyone will need somewhere to go after gifts and/or Chinese food, there are four amazing-looking movies coming out this week, “Nine,” “It’s Complicated,” “Sherlock Holmes,” and a limited release of “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.” So put on your matching sweaters, hide a thermos of cocoa and peppermint schnapps in your bag, and go see a movie. Happy Holidays! Keep reading »
Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
Another day, another “Nine” premiere. With so many starlets cast in the film — Kate Hudson, Penelope Cruz and Fergie, to name a few–there are bound to be some mighty interesting red carpet moments as the ladies promote the movie around the world. But last night in Hollywood, Nicole Kidman really turned The Fashion Peacekeepers‘ heads. Hmm … let’s just focus on the positive here. The color is semi-flattering … it certainly fits well. She looks happy wearing it, and as Amelia put it, “She’ll look awfully chic when she’s a granny.” So there’s that. Anyone care to weigh in? Keep reading »
Excuse me, Grace Coddington approved this? For the November issue of Vogue, Anna and Co. rounded up the female stars of the upcoming movie musical “Nine.” Four of them — Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, and Kate Hudson — are on the cover together, but the overly airbrushed shot makes it oh-so-obvious that photographer Annie Liebovitz shot them separately and spliced them together in Photoshop. Regardless, the beach background is tragic, the fashion makes no sense in context, and they all look like wax figurines. Cover shoot FAIL. [Just Jared] Keep reading »
I had every intention of writing this post at 9:09 a.m., but I forgot, OK? Happy 9/9/09 everyone! Lots of fun stuff is going on today. More than 10,000 couples in Beijing are getting hitched because in China nine is considered to be the number of longevity. Peeps are going wedding-crazy in Australia, too, where three times as many people are getting hitched today as on the average weekday. Las Vegas is in on the wedding bonanza too. The Stratosphere hotel will be marrying 99 couples at 9:09 p.m. for the discount price of $99.09. But even if you’re not getting married, there are lots of ways to celebrate the day. You could watch a baseball game tonight—where there are nine players on the field, nine innings, and 90 feet between bases. Or you could book a room at one of the establishments taking part in Hotels.com’s “$99 Or Less” room sale. Or you could go see “9,” the post-apocalyptic animated flick from Tim Burton. A few party poopers are saying that the world is going to end today. But, you know, whatever. See you on 10/10/10. [CNN] Keep reading »
Sophia Loren is sexy as hell at 73. This grandma’s still got it going on, from her redhead to her red-hot career. Sophia will be singing her way back to the big screen in Nine, a new musical which will hit theaters in 2009. In the film, she will play the ghost of the mother of famed Italian director Federico Fellini (8 ½ , Armacord). The script was written by the late Fellini and will also star Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, and Dame Judi Dench. But all eyes will be on Loren who, as the director Robert Marshall (Chicago) said of his first meeting with her, “My heart almost lept out of my chest because she’s so tall and beautiful. Everything you imagine her to be on screen — the humor, the warmth, that great laugh — is all there in reality.” [USA Today]
