Oscar de la Renta Deat at 82

21 October 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has died aged 82. The designer to the stars - who created Amal Clooney's wedding dress for her and George Clooney's nuptials on September 27 - passed away at his Connecticut home on Monday (20.10.14) and while the cause of death is yet to be released, he was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. The designer rose to prominence in the 1960s when then-First Lady Jackie Kennedy wore his garments and he went on to launch his own fashion label. Former First Lady Hilary Clinton also used to regularly wear his designs, as did Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan, and earlier this month Michelle Obama, Us President Barack Obama's wife, wore one of his garments to an event. The Dominican Republic-born designer dressed several stars throughout a highly successful career, including Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Audrey Hepburn. Just last month, one of his »

Curio: My Fair Lady at 50

20 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Alexa here to celebrate the 50th anniversary of My Fair Lady. Although not my favorite movie musical, unlike the Smackdowners this summer,  I always have a blast returning to it.  Despite the many charms of Audrey Hepburn's performance, I love re-writing history and imagining how different a film it would be had Julie Andrews returned to the role.  Even more intriguing is imagining if Elizabeth Taylor (who wanted the role) had played Eliza.  For better or for worse, its Pygmalion story continues to be reinvented, with the latest incarnation being the ABC comedy Selfie (worth a watch for John Cho).

Some curios, vintage and handmade, to celebrate 1964's Best Picture after the jump...

Fashion Designer Oscar de la Renta Dies at 82

20 October 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who dressed generations of celebrities in red carpet and evening gowns, has died after battling cancer at 82.

In the early 1960s, he came to fame dressing Jackie Kennedy, and founded an influential New York fashion house. Among the actresses who appreciated his glamorous red carpet gowns were Audrey Hepburn, Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Kristen Stewart, Penelope Cruz and Jessica Chastain. One of his most recent commissions was Amal Clooney’s wedding dress.

His name was so synonymous with high fashion that an entire “Sex and the City” episode was based on the idea of Carrie Bradshaw receiving a knee-length red poufy dress from her boyfriend Aleksandr Petrovsky.

He can also be seen in 2009 documentary “The September Issue,” about the making of Vogue magazine’s huge annual fall edition.

Though his ruffles and slinky satin dresses were undeniably feminine, he told Elle magazine, »

6 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The words "25 years Later" and "2016" also flash on the screen before the Showtime logo pops up.The new, nine-episode season will reportedly go into production in 2015 and air in 2016, the 25th anniversary of the original's finale. Kyle MacLachlan is in talks to once again star as FBI Agent Dale Cooper and the show will be a continuation of '90s cult classic.The original show, which ran for just two seasons, followed Cooper as he tried »

The performances are charming - naturally - but the film's audacious and elaborate heist really puts the cherry on top. »

George Clooney will be honored with a prestigious award at the 72nd Golden Globes.

George Clooney has achieved enough for a lifetime, or at least that's what the Golden Globe Awards think.

The 53-year-old actor will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2015 Golden Globes. The honorary award is given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."

“The idea of the film is to be happy and positive” – Sonam Kapoor

13 September 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Sonam Kapoor is living many girls dreams and becoming a Disney princess if the film Khoobsurat has a happily ever after ending, which we are guessing it does. A new version of the Rekha starrer (!980) of the same name, this time the heroine is not in the house of an army man but goes into the house of a royal family. Her prince is played by Pakistani actor Fawad Khan making his debut in Hindi films.

The Disney Utv produced film, which hits theaters on Friday September 19th, is a quirky, modern romantic comedy about what happens when a vibrant, hopelessly romantic physiotherapist meets a handsome young Rajput prince who is the complete opposite of her – and is engaged to someone else. It is a battle of values between two individually crazy families — one that encourages discipline and self-restraint versus the other, which is all for spontaneity and open-mindedness.
