About Aging And Kids With Julianne Moore

I sometimes ask myself, whenever I see a new, extraordinary, revealing story with yet the same famous person who was interviewed tens of times before, on numerous occasions and answered pretty much the same questions: ’what’s there to read that I haven’t read before?’ What’s the novelty? What’s to be revealed more than it already has been before? And I skipped the story altogether. Even if I enjoy reading about that person, I don’t enjoy reading the same thing over and over again. Out of respect for me, for the person in cause, for the column and the one who wrote it under contract and so many other directions I choose to respect.

Julianne Moore finally addressed this issue and for this (and many reasons more) I love her to heavens and back! She was featured in DuJour magazine as ‘The Most Honest Actress in Hollywood’ and the talk she had was really sincere and upfront! Hit the jump to convince yourself!

Affordable (Rip-Off) Catwalk Fashion Via H&M. Good Or Bad?

I’m not always memorizing catwalk looks which I then identify in fast fashion stores. But when it does happen: identifying a catwalk ripoff, I feel strangely ambivalent about it.

On one hand, I think it’s terrible for the fashion designer, to have his or her work so blatantly copied and replicated with no credit due whatsoever. Not to mention royalties. But then again, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so… And then there’s another aspect of fast-fashion: not many customers are fully aware of what they’re buying as being a catwalk ripoff. They just pick it up from the hanger, at best try it on see if it fits and then just blindly wear it. Without thinking if it’s this or that season, this or that designer lookalike. Because, just like the name suggests it, they fast-buy fast-fashion which they fast-wear. There’s no ‘thinking’ about it. No time. It’s all fast.

Amanda Seyfried Takes Over Givenchy, One Ad Campaign At The Time

Remember when we talked about the swift change that went on in Givenchy’s beauty advertising? Younger, more mediatized Amanda Seyfried taking over the Very Irresistible contract from Liv Tyler?

Well, it didn’t happen just for the beauty campaign, actually. It’s taking over the entire maison of Givenchy, one ad at the time. Amanda Seyfried appears in the house’s latest ad prints as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Wait, it gets better: not only did Carine styled the ads but she also starred in them alongside her daughter, Julia (I wonder if they didn’t bring the wee one along for the family portrait’s sake).

Honestly, What The Fun! (The Fast Franchise Furiously Heists Again)

I forgot to talk movies this week, haven’t I? How could I? Gotta get to it right away! So while the entire world is too busy eyeballing the slightly boring black and white Cannes Red Carpet or praising Baz Luhrmann’s Gatsby industry or just immersing Into the Darkness in 3D, we were occupied with the sixth installment of the Fast franchise. Because you gotta have some wholeheartedly fun every now and then!

And Fast & Furious Six is just amazingly fun. That type of honest, adrenaline infused, ridiculously exaggerated fun! And we laughed our heart out! I know they’re most certainly not reading these lines, but I don’t apologize for having so much fun to the nice people seated next to us who clearly weren’t familiarized with the Fast fun. It’s unique. It’s fast-flavored. And this Honest trailer I added after the jump is the best description for it (don’t worry, it’s not a spoiler. Nothing can spoil the Fast fun!).

Anja Rubik Swimsuit Vision: Vogue Spain Vs Vogue Paris

Anja Rubik seems to be a fixture in fashion magazines worldwide, especially when the swimsuit season arrives. There’s something about her in a swimsuit that inspires fashion editors beyond compare. She must look good with her tan on and little else, by summer style standards.

So there we are, talking about Anja and her Vogue features. She’s on the cover of Vogue Spain June 2013 and also gracing one of the main pictorials of Vogue Paris June/July 2013 issue. While in Emmanuelle Alt’s vision and Mario Sorrenti’s lenses, Anja looks like she always does (at least as far as Vogue Paris is concerned, Anja’s styling is pretty much the same in every pictorial be it for summer, winter or any other season’s issues), Vogue Spain tried to change perspectives a bit. And might have succeeded.

Brad Pitt Black And White Esquire Pictures Bring Brangelina On My Mind

Something about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will always get people talking. About them, about their life together, about the six kids. People love a good drama and their story only seems to be about love so everybody is waiting for the drama to unfold. But it just doesn’t.

After Angelina Jolie’s brave confession, there goes (perfect timing, wouldn’t you agree?) Brad Pitt gracing the pages of Esquire Magazine, the June July 2013 issue. He doesn’t look like he aged a day past Interview with a Vampire and he seems to make a name and a casual appearance with Chanel’s ad campaign as a departing point of inspiration. Or so I get the feeling. That the styling of this pictorial is hinting back at his Chanel ad days. And Max Vadukul’s photographs accompany a story written by Tom Junod under the tagline ‘Brad Pitt’s Life is Larger than Yours’.

What Diet Meal Plan Works For You? Let Tracy Anderson Cater It!

Talking about Gwyneth Paltrow without thinking about Tracy Anderson has become nearly impossible lately as both ladies keep showing how much they have in common besides their obvious similar blond tresses.

An entire workout plan and now a complete diet meal plan. All under Tracy Anderson’s fit umbrella. ella. ella. It must be weird, though, eating less calories by paying more on your food: the magic diet plan starts at $55/day for a 14-day diet. However, the announcement of her Food Program estimates the daily costs for up to a 12-months long plan (in which case it’s ‘only’ costing you $45.95/day.

Smell Like A Boss: Gwyneth Paltrow Still Hugo Boss Spokesperson

I did say something about this being the perfect time to launch a perfume, haven’t I? News about Gwyneth Paltrow sticking with Hugo Boss for yet another advertorial year were just confirmed.

Although there’s no telling if the new ad campaign for the (old?) Hugo Boss perfume Gwyneth was contracted to represent will be just as brilliant as the first one, but we still have until August to see the ad prints or the commercials. Hopefully it’ll be a little more creative, although judging from the Cannes Red Carpet where a worrying majority of black and white dresses glamorously walked up the film festival’s stairs, we could be heading towards yet another monochrome, monotone marketing move. Starring the celebrity everyone loves to hate, Gwyneth Paltrow. Like a Boss.
