Maid Marion’s Designer Moment

Cate Blanchett and Roger Vivier give Maid Marion a fashionable update for the new “Robin Hood” movie, in the form of brown boots that are to die for. Bruno Frisoni, the artistic director for Roger Vivier, worked with the actress and the movie’s costume director, Janty Yates, to create one-of-a-kind boots specifically designed to show off Maid Marion’s girlish take on a masculine style. The end result is a pair of flat brown suede boots with buckles and lacing that forms the perfect marriage of riding boots and fashion-forward daily wear for more modern times. Be prepare to swoon over Cate’s shoes when the movie comes to theaters this Friday — and start searching for a similar style for your fall wardrobe. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

Quotable: Russell Crowe Gives Us A History Lesson

“There are no tights in this film. They weren’t invented until quite a few hundred years after when the story takes place. We start our story in 1199. Tights don’t come into play until the 1600s. I do apologize to those who will be disappointed that there are no tights.”

—Russell Crowe gets on his high history horse about his flick “Robin Hood,” which opens on May 14. Isn’t it cute that he thinks people still want to see him in tights? [Yahoo!] Keep reading »

“Robin Hood” Is Going To Steal The Hearts Of Summer Audiences

I haven’t felt this excited about a historical epic film since watching trailers for 2000′s “Gladiator,” which I saw twice in theaters and dozens of times on DVD after that. And it’s no surprise the latest version of “Robin Hood” reminds me of “Gladiator” because it stars Russell Crowe and was directed by Ridley Scott. Although I really enjoy “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” and have been known to say “Damned English oak” in my best Morgan Freeman Moorish accent, I know Scott’s version of this “rob from the rich to give to the poor” tale is going to be so much better. Robin’s love interest, the Lady Marian, is played by Cate Blanchett, and even she gets in on some of the action as Robin and his gang battle against the despotic sheriff and ineffective new king. Marian isn’t running around trying to keep the sheriff from raping her as in “Prince of Thieves,” and we don’t have to witness any hokey romance between Robin and her. Plus, special effects are way better than they were in the ’90s, and Scott is a master at capturing fight and battle scenes. “Robin Hood” hits theaters May 14. Keep reading »
