Today is a good day for everyone who is really excited about Greta Gerwig’s upcoming film, Civil War Lady Bird…I mean, Little Women. Sony dropped the first official trailer for Little Women. We have already seen what Saoirse Ronan will look like as Jo and Timothée Chalamet as Mr. Darcy. Wait, wrong period piece film – he plays Laurie. And as expected, there’s plenty of gender-switching wardrobe moments and peak-19th century sexual tension between the two.
This live-action Barbie movie has taken more twists and turns than the waist of a Twist n’ Turn Barbie. First Mattel was working with Sony on a live-action Barbie movie written by and starring Amy Schumer. Amy Schumer dropped out because of a scheduling conflict. Then Anne Hathaway was in talks, and eventually the role of Barbie went to Margot Robbie, with Patty Jenkins possibly directing. And now there’s a new development, and it’s 100% more random.
I know that’s the title of the book the film is based on, but it could also double as the store where they bought those hats. It looks like three out of four of the March sisters stole their hats off American Girl dolls? Perhaps this question will be answered when Greta Gerwig’s version of Little Women hits theaters, but for now all we have are tiny hats and a picture of Timothée Chalamet as Laurie.
The 2018 TIME 100 Gala was held last night in New York City to celebrate Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people. And whether the people were influential or not, the red carpet fashion pulled from a variety of sources. Like Leslie Jones in Christian Siriano, who is giving you Grace Jones after stopping at Studio 54 while thinking,”I wonder what the rent is on this place? Do they pay monthly or yearly? You know what, hand me my coke spoon and purse, I’m leaving to pursue a career in commercial real estate.”
Note that I left out the word “mess,” as there’s no question that the messiest part of the red carpet was most likely the three square feet of space occupied by Ryan Seacrest.
If there was an award for red carpet fashion that makes you question a stylist’s sanity, Nicole Kidman would be that category’s Meryl Streep. Nicole arrived in an Armani Prive gown that does double duty. From the waist-up she’s very mascot of a sexy frozen fish company, and from the waist down I’m getting a reminder to please separate my plastic recyclables from my paper.
He looks like if Damien from The Omen got a job at Jiffy Lube. That’s current Hollywood slobber object Timothee Chalamat holding his statue for Best Male Lead for his part as a teenage twink in love with a much older dude in Call Me By Your Name. The Independent Spirit Awards were held yesterday. Variety reports that Jordan Peele’s “white people really ARE evil!” horror/comedy/satire Get Out won for Best Feature and Best Director, and honestly, why is Timothee dressed like a gas station attendant? Surely choosing an outfit for these things isn’t that much of a stressor that you say “eff it” and go with coveralls?
