Ever since we read that fascinating New York Times essay chronicling the making of Paul Schrader’s The Canyons — you know, the one where Lindsay Lohan sneaks off set to go partying until 6:00 AM then wins back the director’s affection by tapping into her personal traumas in a tragically post-meta strain of method acting — we’ve been dying to see the film.
Be still, our hearts!
It’s very possible that the model will be infiltrating Tinseltown soon!
Andrej Pejic is a superstar, and as evidence of that we offer you the news that French director Florence Dewavrin has asked him to play the title role in her adaptation of Seraphita.
Woody Allen has a thing for First Ladies. During a recent appearance on U.K. talkshow Daybreak, Allen revealed his plans to cast Michelle Obama in one of his films.
We here at Styleite love shoes. We also love movies. So it’s no surprise that some of our favorite movies are about shoes. We’re actually a little miffed that there aren’t more movies about shoes, but that’s another post for another day. Today, inspired by some of the beautiful shoes in Sophie Theallet‘s spring collection for Nine West, we’d like to share some of our favorite shoe-movies with you.
Most movie tie-in products suck. So, in an attempt to do right by, well, itself and its new movie “Tron,” Disney collaborated with Canadian shoe designer Jerome Rousseau to create the gorgeous piece of shoe you see above.
Yesterday it was with great pleasure that we lauded the effortlessly chic ensembles Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan put together at the photocall for their film “Never Let Me Go.” But today, now that we have pictures of the red carpet from last night’s premiere of the same film, our heads are spinning from how both young actors seem to stay so on point all the time.
While Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan both have celebrated red carpet style, it’s fun to get to see them have a little fun with what they wear — and to see them take risks. Earlier today at the photocall for their new movie “Never Let Me Go,” both young actors wore outfits that we weren’t sure we liked at first. But after looking at them all morning, now they’re kinda sorta growing on us.
The shady, predatory side of the industry is the one former model Sara Ziff, above, wanted to portray in her new film Picture Me: A Model’s Diary, which chronicles five years in the lives of a group of models and follows them backstage and beneath the makeup. The movie (or at least the trailer) reveals a world of women who are treated more like robots than human beings.
It’s hard not to wish good things for Natalia Vodianova, and they just keep coming to her in droves. The model and mother of three had a whirlwind summer, landing a Peter Lindbergh spread in American Vogue, covering Russian and Korean Vogue, and starring in a roundly lauded ad campaign for Louis Vuitton. What better way to put absurdly delicious icing on the cake that is Vodianova’s life than by starring in a second feature film?
We always thought movie premieres were supposed to be ultra-glamorous events, even if they do happen when the sun’s still out. So why did Chace Crawford look like he was about to lead a weekly budget meeting at the Deauville Film Festival yesterday?
Last week when we posted this photo of Emma Watson‘s new hairdo, all we could do was praise her. Oh my, we said, how well it suits her face! How refreshing it is to see something so simple and so honest, and how cool that Watson chose to make her hair an homage to Twiggy or Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby! But news has surfaced today that Watson may have had an ulterior motive in cutting her hair.
For a movie with a soaring, emotionally stirring plot, it makes sense that the costumes would need to be clean and a little minimal, so as not to distract from the plot. So we were excited to learn that the master of clean minimalism, designer Jil Sander, designed the costumes for Tilda Swinton‘s new movie I Am Love, which will debut in the US on June 18.
In a survey conducted by The Radio Times, a group of 1,000 men and and 1,000 women were asked to name their favorite female film roles. Not surprisingly, the ladies chose the powerful, independent characters, and the men noted the sexy bikini-clad hotties. So, in an homage to the ladies of the silver screen, we present you with seven of our favorite and most fashionable film heroines.
