Well, that didn’t take very long. Some tasteless asshat made thongs reading “Aurora 7-20-12″ for sale on the CafePress web site. They appear to have been taken down by now, but The Cut captured a screengrab. What is wrong with some people? [NYMag.com]
It might seem like the staff of The Frisky is a little obsessed with Marion Cotillard, but that’s only because we, uh, are. Here, she’s posed at a premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” in what seems to be a simple skirt and bustier combo. Only it’s Marion, so it looks incredible. We don’t necessarily recommend that you try to copy her look exactly. For one thing, that skirt length looks pretty much horrible on most people who are on movie stars. And another? The Balenciaga heels she’s wearing cost upwards of $600. But we’re pretty happy with our Style Stealer version of her look. Check it out after the jump! Keep reading »
Today in completely classless, whoever runs the Twitter account for CelebBoutique.com (which sells celeb-inspired clothing) thought it would be ingenious to use the #Aurora hashtag on Twitter (trending because of the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado early this morning) to sell their Kim Kardashian-inspired “Aurora” dress. Either the person is A) a moron and hasn’t paid a lick of attention to the news today or B) a complete shitbird who knew exactly what was happening and thinks they were being clever. Regardless, the tweet has been up for over two hours and has received countless negative replies, yet it hasn’t been removed. [Update: Just kidding, the tweet was just removed, as of 3 p.m.] Compassion: ur doing it wrong. [Twitter]
“I saw ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ last night, and among other things, Catwoman is a feminist superhero with a story line and transformation of her own — plus class consciousness, a girl buddy, equal skills with the Batman equipment, and an apartment of her own in Old Town. And she gets the guy.”
– It’s the movie endorsement you’ve all been waiting for: iconic feminist Gloria Steinem gives a thumbs-up to “The Dark Knight Rises.” Okay, I am pretty sure you were not waiting for that endorsement. [It's worth noting that Steinem's husband was David Bale, who died in 2003, and she is therefore Christian's step-mom, which may make her a tiny bit biased. That said, the movie looks gooood. -- Editor] But I am happy to hear she thinks Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman is a great role. The words “feminist superhero” are ones we can always use to more of in the mainstream! [Women & Hollywood]
The cards are stacked undeniably in Marion Cotillard’s favor, but she always manages to surprise me with her impeccable sartorial choices. It’s incredible how one woman can go so long without wearing anything boring or even erring on the questionable side: she kills it, and she’s so believably dynamic that it’s never like, “oh, it’s just Marion in a fantastic dress again.” It’s jaw-dropping every time like it’s the first time. She often chooses Dior for events, given that she’s one of the faces of the brand (like a girl really needs a reason to wear Dior), and in my opinion she wears it better than anyone. This frock, a delicate combination of a fitted, ’50s-inspired bodice and a frothy ruffled skirt, is beautifully swan-like (in no way reminiscent of Björk’s O.G. swan dress), but it’s the fierce shoes that really (quite literally) hammer it in. Check those bitches out. They’re an unlikely pairing for such a ladylike little dress, and that’s what makes the whole look thoroughly awesome.
It may be the final Batman film from Christopher Nolan, but he’s clearly going out with a bang rather than a whimper with “The Dark Knight Rises.” Judging by the absolutely ingenious new full-length trailer that Warner Bros. released on Monday night, the third installment may just be the best of the series.
Scheduled to hit theaters on July 20, “The Dark Knight Rises” is one of the summer’s most-anticipated movies, so it’s no surprise that the new trailer is already generating a ton of buzz. In classic Christopher Nolan form, the trailer is the perfect promotion—just enough of a tease without relying on the increasingly popular studio method of showing the whole damn film in two minutes. It leaves us feeling excited about the film, but still dying to know more. Read more…
