The Cannes Film Festival is still underway; however, I’ve been ravenously collecting a slew of glamorous day & evening looks from the event’s red carpets, including premieres / screenings, press junkets, & parties. Some of the most buzzed about films are being celebrated overseas, including The Great Gatsby, As I Lay Dying, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Bling Ring, & Inside Llewyn Davis. Jennifer Lawrencehas been in out & about in several head-to-toe Dior looks. It’s also no surprise that Gatsby actress Carey Mulliganhas been making headlines with a series of black & white minimalist ensembles from Vionnet, Balenciaga, Dior Haute Couture, & Chloe.
I haven’t posted in Haute Headlinesfor a while, but I recently came across so many awesome news stories that I had to feature. Of course, there’s plenty going on this spring, & even more to look forward to this coming summer. What stories are you following this week? Who is your favorite celebrity to talk about? Happy Styling!
Some of you may already know that I lend my writing skills to a movie news & reviews website, Movie Buzzers, as a freelance film critic & news reporter. This has its benefits since I love to examine fashion in films & one of the most anticipated movies of 2013 is certainly Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, & Elizabeth Debicki.
Not only does the movie celebrate the Jazz Age classic tale, originally written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald, but it’s Luhrmann’s imagination that brings new life to the 3-D film. Also, costume designer Catherine Martin (Moulin Rouge, Australia) collaborated with Miuccia Prada, whose accomplishments include Prada & Miu Miu, for an impeccable vision for men’s & women’s fashion for the era. You can be certain that luxurious lace details, flapper-inspired hemlines, & art deco accessories will make a comeback once the film premieres on May 10th.
Yesterday’s inauguration & the inaugural ball were the talk of not just the town, but of the whole country! Of course throngs of fashion fans were waiting to see Michelle Obamain her surprise gown & it’s no wonder she stuck with a fantastic design by Jason Wu. However, there’s a lot more going on that readers should also know about as we kick off yet another stylish week! Which stories are you talking about at the water cooler? Which headlines are you retweeting? Happy Styling!
Classic literature has never looked so stylish, especially with the motion picture remakes of some of the most well-known stories. This includes Les Miserables, starring Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne, & Amanda Seyfried. The adaptation from Victor Hugo’s novel & the quintessential Broadway play is set to hit theaters December 14th. Check out the trailer below for an emotional first trailer of the film, as well as this link to the latest coverage of the film on Movie Buzzers.
Also, for some real high-fashion glamour, director Baz Luhrmann is reinventing F. Scott Fitzgerald jazz-age tragedy, The Great Gatsby, in 3-D with a stellar cast which includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher, & Joel Edgerton. I’ve been following the coverage of this film on Movie Buzzers, but I’ve been dying to share with my Style Darling readers a gimpse of this movie. The trailer is a dramatic tease of glitz & glory. Also, be sure to follow that least news on this film here.
