Fashion Week Observed
It’s time for the Golden Globe nominations, and with some of the more satellite awards pulling for early frontrunners (Gotham, Film Critics from New York, LA and Boston, etc.,) we’re starting to see some movie trends confirmed. Everyone loved 12 Years a Slave! Unsurprisingly! And Breaking Bad and Girls and Nebraska and American Hustle and Spike Jonze and Martin Scorcese movies that aren’t even out yet!
But there are some surprises…Brooklyn Nine-Nine, anyone? Rush? The Butler gets no love? Greta Gerwig for Frances Ha? That movie was great and all, but Lena Dunham is already representing the affected Brooklyn 20-something constituents with her Girls nominations, are you telling us that the portrayal of overly self-involved young women trying to “make it” in New York is going to start being a thing? Is already a thing?
See the full list of nominees below.
The old driver with a long white beard had no idea what he was getting himself into. He had been hired to drive around the ATL Twins Friday night, eventually taking them to The Lightbox, an event space in the Garment District, for The Line Up, a bash thrown for the witty, subversive fashion Read More
Leonardo DiCaprio zipped around Ibiza on some sort of high-tech jet-propelled marine hoverboard recently, proving that even dorks in helmets can date Victoria’s Secret models (well, provided those dorks are Leonardo DiCaprio).
Party-hop like it\'s 1922
It’s been several years since Bret Easton Ellis’ most famous character, Patrick Bateman, relaunched the career of former Newsies actor Christian Bale and essentially turned him into Batman. So we can only imagine how Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas-esque rendition of a real-life Bateman — Jordan Belfort, the founder of 90s pump-and-dump firm Stratton Oakmont – will affect the already meteororic rise of Leonardo DiCaprio, who hasn’t had a day off from a film set since What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?
Here’s Gatsby being great in the first official Wolf of Wall Street trailer; more fun than he’s seemingly had in years and tearing as voraciously into the character of Belfort as another sort of wise guy you’d expect to see in a Scorsese film.
Early last Thursday morning, Leonardo DiCaprio was sitting in the basement of The Darby as a long line of girls came toward him carrying bursting bottles of champagne affixed with firecrackers. Jay-Z held court in a corner booth. Tobey Maguire danced on a banquette. And Mr. DiCaprio—Jay Gatsby—looked on with a smile. The pitch of Read More
Let’s face it. The Great Gatsby never has been—and probably won’t ever be—successfully turned into a great motion picture. Many have tried (four flop movies, not to mention various small-screen attempts, including a truncated but memorable Playhouse 90 with Robert Ryan and Jeanne Crain in the golden days when TV still knew what quality programming Read More
It’s been one lucky break after another for Erin Bubley, aka Erin Heatherton, the girl from Skokie, Ill., who moved to New York to become a model and caught the eye of Leonardo DiCaprio—all while strutting around in bedazzled lingerie for Victoria’s Secret.
Now the underwear angel is flitting into a loft-like two-bedroom condo at 1 Morton Square, which she purchased for $1.76 million, according to city records. All at the age of 23! We bet Ms. Bubley is really glad that she decided to spend the summer before her senior year modeling in New York rather than going to camp.
The highly-anticipated Great Gatsby re-boot (or whatever!) was to be released this Christmas, but it’s avoiding the Anna Karenina/Django Unchained/Hobbit pile-up with a move to next summer. Totally speculating here: this throws the editorial calendars of several top magazines into chaos. Herewith, our deeply un-educated guesses on the stories and cover lines editors are stuck with:
Quentin Tarantino loves a good revenge fantasy. Besides Kill Bill, his last Academy Award-winning film, Inglorious Basterds, reimagined the death of Hitler and the Nazi regime at the hands of the Jews.
Five years later, we have Django Unchained: the highly-anticipated ode to the spaghetti western in which Southern slave Jamie Foxx and German bounty hunter Christoph Waltz are on a mission to make Southern plantation owners suffer.
The first trailer for The Great Gatsby is out–the adaptation starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as Daisy is to be out at Christmas, and is, incongruously, advertised using music by Jack White and a rap track from “Watch the Throne.” Everything one would like to see is there–the eyes of T. J. Read More
