First Look: The Hobbit, The Desolation Of Smaug

Tauriel, Legolas, Thranduil cover Empire’s new issue in reference to Peter Jackson’s new release of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit adaptation for the big screen. Until this December, when the movie actually hits theaters worldwide, we’ll have more inside scoops at this new episode called ‘The Desolation of Smaug’.

If we already knew Legolas and Thranduil before this new film, Tauriel comes as an entirely new character as invented by Peter Jackson in an attempt to bring more femininity in the Hobbit’s adventures. From the role that forged Evangeline Lily into our hearts in the now-legendary TV series Lost to Tauriel, a connective thread exists as Peter Jackson imagined this new Elf as the head of the Elven Guard, a fantastic warrior.

Wear Casual Black For A Bright Future

I was recently tipped about a lovely page of style in the neverending book of fashion interwebs and I decided I shouldn’t keep it all for myself. Bright Future is a slightly offbeat brand blending music and urban culture in a black set of clothing appealing to the young and fashionable individuals who care more about a style of their own than the style of the many or the many styles.

The modern woman who wears a lot of black in a lot of different, minimalist ways will most definitely see a Bright Future in this LA based clothing brand.

What Is Madonna’s Secret Project?

The original Queen of Controversy is off to something. And it seems to be pretty big. Teaming up with Steven Klein once more, her Madgesty is barely teasing us with her #secretproject.

Now that Gaga is out of the way (let’s just say that she’s resting), Madonna wants her throne back and she wants it back in style. Her usual controversy filled, strong imagery and potentially offending symbolism are back in a 59 seconds long trailer of which I captured the visuals below.

I know it’s not much and not hinting anywhere particularly. But it’s Madonna. And Steven Klein. And together, they’re onto something big. The trailer is here, should you watch it, you’ll immediately understand why I left it out of our beloved StyleFrizz. It’s dodgy and dark, slithery and subversive. In a strange, commercial kind of way. Speculate away!

Scarlett Johansson Brings Vanity Fair In France

We may not have heard much about Scarlett Johansson since her epic separation from Ryan Reynolds, but she’s alive and kicking. In France! We knew she wasn’t your ordinary blond bombshell since she entered the fancy cinematic world of Woody Allen, or Sofia Coppolla, but Scarlett is keen on showing us how different and lost in Hollywood translation she was and still is!

And what better way to demonstrate that but with a story in a French magazine? She’s Hollywood raised but adopted by the French hospitality and way of living. As the cover of Vanity Fair’s first French issue warns us: Scarlett is living above a café where they’re playing the accordion… La Boheme, la boheme!

Have You Seen Lily Cole’s Rubber Jewelry Collection?

Lily Cole is one of my favorite models ever. Her unique features and adorable gingerness have not yet been upstaged by any other model. Plus she took a break from modeling to get a higher education and now is involved with environmental causes? Chapeau!

Her latest doing is a jewelry line that would contribute to the salvation of the Amazonian forest. A collection made with wild rubber and metal designed by the model herself with prices ranging from $15 for a ring to $30 for a necklace. Each of the rings, earrings or necklaces are available in four different rubber colors and some of them are already sold out.

Daisy Lowe Plays Bonnie&Clyde For Lancaster Bags Ad Campaign

Talking about Daisy Lowe: just when I thought she was under the fashion radar, there she goes, in the Fall 2013 ad campaign of the French bags company Lancaster. She’s playing the Bonnie to an American Clyde (Donny Lewis) for the stylish, slightly retro images shot by Guy Aroch.

There’s no chemistry, no engagement between the stars of the campaign and I wouldn’t have known there was a Bonnie&Clyde theme unless I read it beforehand in the press release. But I guess it’s all for the rejuvenating of the targeted customers and that’s where Daisy Lowe’s appeal kicks in, unpardonably pouty and perpetually unsatisfied.

Kate Moss Turns Back Time In New Versace Ad Campaign

I was just carelessly browsing away the fashion pages until I came across a visually stunning image of Kate Moss advertising for Versace’s Fall 2013 campaign. Wearing just a couple of colorful quilted bags from the said fashion house, Kate Moss seems to have found the secret to eternal youth.

Then again, she’s posing for Donatella Versace’s house. If Kate doesn’t look the part, there’s always the proper Photoshop tool and the good ol’ smoothing filter to cut back a couple of years. That aside, the punk approach of the campaign hints back at the glory days of the Medusa maison, with neon colors and daring, edgy cuts. Saskia de Brauw is also part of the advertising, except she’s fully clothed and posing punk-ily for the camera.
