As many of you already know, I’m a huge Marilyn Monroe fan & it just came to my attention this afternoon that HBO is premiering a documentary about the actress whose personal journals & letters are narrating the deep, inner workings of her life. As a fan of her work, style, & a writer myself, I am so excited to see this documentary, which features appearances by some of Hollywood’s A-listers, lending their voice to Marilyn’s haunting, hopeful, & powerful words. This includes Uma Thurman, Evan Rachel Wood, Lindsay Lohan, Elizabeth Banks, & countless others. Take a look at the trailer below & tune in to HBO for what’s sure to be a compelling & intimate portrait of America’s most influential sex symbol.
I really never post about men’s fashion, only b/c I know that my proficiency is with the fairer sex. However, while clicking around on In Style, I was tickled by this latest news piece. Back in January during Fashion Week, some of today’s most celebrated and/or up-and-coming actors hit the catwalk in show of support for Prada. See below for Country Strong star Garrett Hedlund, Into The Wild‘s Emile Hirsch, Oscar-winner Adrien Brody, Lie To Me star Tim Roth, & the original big screen Billy Elliot, Jamie Bell.
However, most recently Bell & Hedlund returned to don Prada’s aristocrat-inspired line for the label’s latest ad campaign, alongside highly-lauded thespians, Gary Oldman & Willem Dafoe. It’s not often that we see such an eclectic mix turn out for a high-end fashion ad, but it’s always refreshing to see the new ways that a legendary name like Prada proves their relevancy & range in the business.
