Kate Bosworth showed up at Sundance to promote her starring role in the new film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s autobiographical novel Big Sur, directed by her fiancé Michael Polish. They certainly chose an odd time to release a Kerouac movie, what with that other one coming out and all. I’m curious to see if Polish’s version features any topless double handjobs. Anyway, Kate wore this leathery retro go-go getup to the premiere. The lady looks good in pretty much everything, and while this outfit is definitely very adventurous, I think it’s slightly too literal to be a hit. It could’ve used some contemporary updates to bring it back down to earth circa 2013. What say you?
Dakota Fanning is looking super, super cute in this crop top and shimmery embroidered miniskirt combo straight outta the Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2013 collection — this is one of my favorite looks of hers in a while. But I just want to call some attention to the fact that Dakota went sleeveless, belly-baring, and fancy-free at Sundance, where temperatures are maxing out at 35 degrees and most of the attendees have been photographed in Uggs and earmuffs. Props! I say this from New York City, which weather reports have currently classified as “frigid.”
There’s been a cold snap on in Los Angeles, which has luckily given our celeb pals a couple of weeks’ practice wearing these things called “coats.” Good thing, too, because it is not warm at the Sundance Film Festival, where approximately all of Hollywood is right now, schmoozing and selling films to each other. Held each year in Park City, Utah, Sundance is an excuse for everybody to get outta California and enjoy the slopes, snowboards and cozy drinks. Take a peek at how some of your faves are getting their festival on.
Evan Rachel Wood was spotted on her way to the Sundance Film Festival in this plaid coat and beret. The newly married–and pregnant–star of “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman” looks comfy and warm. And that’s really all you could want when you’re snowed in at Sundance. [Jking/Fame/Flynet]
If you’re like me, you really have a very vague idea of what the Sundance Film Festival is actually like. In my head I pictured a massive amount of hipsters congregating to watch odd films that the average person cannot comprehend, all while taking breaks to toke it up outside and annoy the natives of Park City (while maybe running into a celeb or two). After researching for this list, I’m pretty sure that most of that is still true, but I’ve collected a few tidbits that legitimize the festival’s artistic and social standing a little more (even though I still think the films are a little weird). Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about the Sundance Film Festival. Read more…
“I’d tell her to do something with a little more subtlety, and she goes, ‘Benh, I am 6 years old. I am in the second grade. Do you think I know what ‘subtlety’ means? Use smaller words.’”
– “Beasts of the Southern Wild” director Benh Zeitlin talking about the 8-year-old star of his movie, Quevenzhané Wallis. “Beasts” received stunning reviews at Sundance, so we think you’re about to hear a lot more about this movie, and adorable Quevenzhané. Get ready! [NYMag.com]
The Sundance Film Festival is not just a place for swag bags and celebs hanging out for the paparazzi on Main Street. Nope, it’s hard work for journalists and publicists who are often running on fumes as we run through the snow to see the best (and worst) movies that are looking for distribution or buzz. I’m always on the lookout for the awesomest lady-centric films to hype because, let’s face it, they’re few and far between.
As always, Sundance offered some overhyped films, huge hits, and big misses. Luckily, I was there to sort the wheat from the chaff, and while I didn’t peep all of these movies, my trusted friends and colleagues did. Keep reading »
You guys know I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, right? Like, love-love. However, I must say, this latest spate of cute videos of JGL singing might just have pushed me over the edge from love to hate. Like, stop being so great, guy. It’s too much. I can’t keep up. If my fantasy that we will one day end up together is going to come true, he’s going to have to get just a little bit more mediocre. Here, JGL does his rendition of “Hey Jude” at a Hit RECord event at the Sundance Film Festival. Ugh. [YouTube]
