When the red carpet made its Academy Awards debut in 1961, it served merely as a means of guiding nominees Elizabeth Taylor and Janet Leigh to the event’s new venue, the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. However, with the advent of E!’s “Live From the Red Carpet,” hosted by the late Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa, which debuted at the 1995 Oscars, the scarlet-rugged pre-show — and its parade of designer-clad celebrities — has proved so popular, it’s all but usurped the main event.
And in today’s social-media age, the power of the red carpet is all the more potent.
“It can help achieve what advertising used to: getting a brand’s name out to the masses,” says Elizabeth Saltzman, stylist to Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow. And no one can benefit more than an unknown name.
“Being worn on the red carpet gives emerging designers tremendous exposure and opens them »

Don’t get us wrong, Blue Ivy had a pretty good 2013. Her mom (that’d be Beyoncé) released a surprise album and Blue featured on the song “Blue” and starred in the music video:
But 2014 was the year she went from the back of a head in some of Beyoncé’s Tumblr pictures to Blue Ivy, breakout star of the 31st annual MTV Video Music Awards, frequent flier, and premiere Michael Jackson impersonator.

My Super Sweet 2nd Birthday: Blue Ivy may have had an extravagant 1st birthday party — we wouldn’t know, our invite got lost in the mail — but this year she really upped her bday (or B’day) game and had an entire zoo rented for her private party, the Jungle Island wildlife park and botanical garden in Miami.
And one party simply would not be enough for Blue. Maybe in 2013, but »

Some 17 Sally Bowleses painted their nails green and sang “Maybe This Time” for the Sam Mendes revisal of Cabaret that ran on Broadway from March 1998 (Natasha Richardson) through January 2004 (Susan Egan). No doubt the Roundabout, which mounted that revisal, as well as the current revival of the revisal, hopes to keep the Kit Kat Klub door revolving. They started this spring with Michelle Williams, who was thrillingly emotional in the part, and have now moved on to Emma Stone, who reportedly had been their first choice. Even aside from Stone’s commercial appeal, you can see why: With her extraordinary face and Mona Lisa smile, her huge celadon eyes and coppery bob, she arrives prepackaged with the kind of remote fascination a Sally Bowles needs. And indeed, she looks terrific as the none-too-bright young thing in William Ivey Long’s pastel frocks and diaphanous lingerie. What fun! you think as »

The 26-year-old actress is the latest star to take on the famed role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret. On November 11, Stone made her Broadway debut replacing Williams, who kicked off the revival of the award-winning musical about the seedy nightlife of 1930s Berlin.
While many have only seen the first image of Stone as the British performer Sally, Playbill has an exclusive behind the scenes look at the show. In the video, the actress sings, dances, and struts her way into the hearts of theatre fans everywhere.
The Birdman actress was originally supposed to star in revival when it first opened in March of this year, but had to pull out to scheduling conflicts. Now she finally has her chance to leave her mark as one of the many Sallys to take the stage.

It's been a difficult week for the Rowland family, to say the least. E! News has learned that Kelly Rowland's mother, Doris Rowland Garrison, passed away Tuesday in Atlanta after going into cardiac arrest the day prior. She was 66. The former Destiny's Child star's publicist confirmed the tragic news and explained that a statement would be released shortly. The family death comes just weeks after the songstress gave birth to son Titan Jewell Weatherspoon, her first child with hubby Tim Weatherspoon. Less than one day after Kelly became a mother, the third member of the ladies' former girl group, Michelle Williams, gushed to E! News about the »
40. Don’t Look Now (1973)
Directed by: Nicholas Roeg
A few films that could be defined as horror appear on this list, mostly because the best ones veer further into a psychological discussion on dealing with fear, death, and loss. Based on a short story by Daphne du Maurier, “Don’t Look Now” is a landmark of British-Italian cinema, thanks to its wonderfully developed characters and realistic depiction of grief. John and Laura Baxter (Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie) travel to Venice, still reeling after the accidental drowning of their daughter Christine. While there, Laura meets a psychic who claims that Christine is still trying to contact them, which she shares with John, who is skeptical. Slowly, John begins to experience supernatural moments and mysterious sightings, some of which appear to be a young girl in a red coat, similar to the one Christine was wearing when she died.

Eddie Redmayne steadily has been building an impressive resume. He romanced Marilyn Monroe (well, Michelle Williams) in My Week with Marilyn. He held a tune . several, in fact . in Tom Hooper.s Les Miserables. And he.s currently courting Oscar buzz for playing Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. But it turns out there are some movies Redmayne is Not destined to be in, and some roles that just aren.t the right fit. The actor has been doing a million interviews as of late in support of The Theory of Everything, and during a conversation with MTV, he admits that he auditioned for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Well, that isn.t special. Everyone auditioned for that movie, from Benedict Cumberbatch to Saoirse Ronan. Only, Redmayne.s audition didn.t go well. In fact, it went spectacularly bad. As he recalls: There.s this wonderful casting director »
Jose here. Earlier this year I reported back from the Kit Kat Club to share my impressions about Michelle Williams’ performance as Sally Bowles in the Roundabout Theatre production of Cabaret. Last night I went back to see what Emma Stone (Spirit-Nominated this morning) brought to the part...
Halfway through the first act of Cabaret, Sally Bowles realizes that life with her naive, new lover Cliff (Bill Heck) might be exactly what she needs. She sits with Cliff on a chaise lounge and for a moment she sees herself living the life of a wife and mother, satisfied with keeping home and raising her child. Suddenly, the Emcee interrupts this precious moment by bringing a microphone, its allure too powerful for Sally to resist, and drawn towards it as if under a spell, she performs “Maybe This Time”.
Onstage, the heartbreaking irony of this moment (Sally selling her soul to showbiz, »
Michelle Williams grew up with Kelly Rowland and Beyonce as the trio navigated the waters of fame with the success of Destiny's Child, and now, Michelle is enjoying watching her friends' journeys into motherhood.
Bey welcomed daughter Blue Ivy nearly three years ago, while Kelly gave birth earlier this month to son Titan Witherspoon, and Michelle said she's loving playing auntie in the two little ones' lives.

Several Oscar contenders are heading to New York and the Broadway stage as the Oscar season progresses in Hollywood. With projects on both coasts, these contenders could score both Tony and Oscar nominations during the upcoming awards season.
Director Bob Fosse won two Tony Awards and an Oscar in 1973. The two Tonys were for direction and choreography for Pippin and the Oscar was for directing Cabaret. Director Stephen Daldry won an Oscar for The Reader and a Tony for Billy Elliot the Musical in 2009.
Five actresses have won both awards in the same year: Shirley Booth won a Tony for The Time of the Cuckoo and an Oscar for Come Back, Little Sheba in 1953; Audrey Hepburn won a Tony for Ondine and an Oscar for Roman Holiday in 1954; Ellen Burstyn won a Tony for Same Time, Next Year and an Oscar for Alice Doesn’t »
