Lili Reinhart Goes Glam for Allure

lili reinhart allure

-I love everything about the styling of Riverdale star Lili Reinhart‘s Allure cover spread.

Macaulay Culkin‘s Esquire cover story is great. He talks about wanting to start a family with girlfriend Brenda Strong (“We’re figuring it out, making the timing work'”), he once again comments on his relationship with Michael Jackson (“He never did anything to me. I never saw him do anything. And especially at this flash point in time, I’d have no reason to hold anything back. The guy has passed on. If anything…right now is a good time to speak up. And if I had something to speak up about, I would totally do it”), and he calls out James Franco for asking him about it when he saw him on a plane (“I give him a little nod as we’re putting our bags overhead. Hey, how you doing? Good, how ya doing? And it was right after the Leaving Neverland documentary came out, and he goes, ‘So, that documentary!’ And that was all he said. I was like, ‘Uh-huh.’ Silence. So then he goes, ‘So what do you think?’ And I turned to him and I go, ‘Do you wanna talk about your dead friend?’ And he sheepishly went, ‘No, I don’t.’ So I said, ‘Cool, man, it was nice to see you'”).

Brad Pitt‘s didn’t just win an Oscar. This award season has rehabilitated his image — and now he even has a gushing People cover story to prove it.

Sophie Turner is pregnant and expecting her first child with Joe Jonas. I don’t know why I thought she was way older than 23.

Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy‘s friendship is goals. They recently shot a movie in Toronto and were spotted hanging out together all over Yorkville during their downtime.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union introduced the world to their 12-year-old transgender child Zaya with a sweet message.  Wade‘s oldest child, who just celebrated his 18th birthday, also shared photos from earlier in their childhood with a lovely message of support.

Lana Condor told a story on James Corden‘s show about how she thought she was stealthily following David Beckham around a Whole Foods until he called her out on it.

-Speaking of Lana, in honour of PS: I Still Love You dropping on Netflix today, Netflix has made To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before available for anyone — even if you don’t have a Netflix account.

Jameela Jamil‘s bad month continues. Now she’s refuting claims that she has Munchausen Syndrome after a Tweet went viral with screengrabs of all the interviews she’s given in which she discusses a wide array of ailments.

-Since she wore her Oscar cape, Natalie Portman‘s history with female directors has been called in question, but it seems like she’s championed women directors and attempted to work with them more than a lot of other actors have.

-Meanwhile, let’s take a look at famous actors’ track records. Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Ryan Gosling and Matt Damon have never worked with female directors. Keanu Reeves does better with 13 female directors (out of 69 films) and David Oyelowo is doing best: he worked with 5 female directors in 2018 alone.

Lauren Graham is playing the Gordon Bombay role in The Mighty Ducks reboot for Disney+ and I dig it.

Rick Moranis is returning from a 24-year acting hiatus to star in a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids reboot.

-We have our first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s The French Dispatch, starring Timothée Chalamet, Sairsoe Ronan, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Benicio Del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, and Jeffrey Wright.

Emmys Red Carpet: Best and Worst Dressed

 

Red and pink dresses, pale blue gowns and side boob were the biggest fashion trends at the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet. Here are my picks for the best and worst dressed of the night:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 EMMYS:

Zendaya SLAYED the red carpet. She was one of the last stars to arrive and girl shut it down with this Poison Ivy-inspired corseted Vera Wang. She could, as the kids say, step on my neck.

 

Russian Doll’s Natasha Lyonne was dripping in gold Gucci. Impeccable styling, impeccable posing, impeccable attitude.

 

I feel like I’ve seen a version of Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s Monique Lhuillier multiple times before but I don’t care. I still love her in it. If she isn’t going to wear the jumpsuit, this is a close second.

 

Regina King jumped on the baby blue bandwagon but added some extra flair with the straps on her Jason Wu dress.

 

GLOW star Betty Gilpin glowed in this sparkly Jason Wu dress paired with simple hair. I wish she’d had a bold lip but otherwise this is stellar.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 EMMYS:

Look, I worship at the alter of Gwendoline Christie and I fully admit that she’s my personal Jesus. But that doesn’t mean I want her to dress like it.

 

The ladies of Game of Thrones should be taking a victory lap, as this is the last season the show is qualified for an Emmy. But they were uniformly underwhelming, especially Sophie Turner. She blended into her pale in Louis Vuitton — a dress that somehow managed to look both wrinkled and stiff.

 

There was a lot of weird bows or folds over boobs on this red carpet. There was also a lot of pale blue. Jameela Jamil in Monique Lhullier was my least fave in both these trends. It looked off-centered and awkward (though she gets points for admitting she did her own makeup).

 

It takes talent for a dress to look both too sheer and too heavy, but Amy Adams‘ dowdy Fendi managed to do just that.

 

Red and pink colour blocked dresses were a huge theme on the red carpet, worn by Marisa Tomei, Taraji P. Henson, Susan Kelechi Watson, and more. For my money (and I know I’m in the minority here), Mandy Moore was the most awkward in a droopy Brandon Maxwell dress that looked like it was always on the verge of falling off. The vampy hair and makeup were on point, though.

 

 

 

Kelly Clarkson Is Ready To Tackle Daytime

kelly clarkson daytime talk show

-Ahead of her syndicated talk show (premiering Sept. 9), Kelly Clarkson covers People and talks about prioritizing her family (“When we were doing the schedule for the show, I was like, ‘I have to drop my kids off at school.’ And I’m always the one who puts them to bed”), impressing her kids (“Our 3-year-old doesn’t get it but the 5-year-old, she’s very clever. She’s already asked that I have Chris Martin on to sing ‘Yellow.’ It’s her favorite song”) and recounts bursting a cyst on her ovary while filming live finales of The Voice — just one week after suffering through a burst appendix while hosting the Billboard Music Awards (“Blake [Shelton] was talking to me and all of the sudden, everything he said just went away and I had to grab his arm and I was like, ‘Something is wrong.’ That was more painful than the appendicitis. It was literally a week after my surgery so I was freaking out!”).

-Holy shit, I want Hugh Grant to ghostwrite all of my insults from now on. This is savage!

-This is a pretty terrible report about how a lot of Rihanna fans have unknowingly signed up for a $50/month VIP membership for her Savage x Fenty lingerie line — and they can only cancel over the phone.

Martha Stewart backhand complimenting Gwyneth Paltrow is a thing of beauty.

-This interview with Joel Schumacher is so very, very juicy that the bit about a post-Pretty Woman Julia Roberts crying in his arms in the backseat of a car and saying “I never needed to be this famous” isn’t even the best anecdote! When asked about shooting Batman Forever he said: “Tommy Lee Jones is, and I say this with great respect, a scene stealer. Well, you can’t steal the scene from Jim Carrey. It’s impossible. And, I think it irked Tommy. He wasn’t kind to Jim. He did not act towards Jim the way an Oscar winner with a star on Hollywood Boulevard, being the oldest member of the cast, and having such a distinguished career and the accolades to go with it, should have acted towards Jim.” He also called Val Kilmer “psychotic.” “I do know Marlon Brando threw Val’s cellphone in the bushes [on the set of The Island of Dr. Moreau] and said, ‘Young man, don’t confuse your ego with the size of your salary, ever.’ Here’s the difference between Val Kilmer and Tommy Lee Jones. I don’t care what state Tommy is in emotionally, when that camera rolls, there is no bad take. Val is a different story.”

-I am very here for Lauren Graham‘s return to TV.

Netflix just nabbed a show about female journalists and politics from super producer Greg Berlanti and The Vampire Diaries creator Julie Plec, inspired by NYT writer Amy Chozick’s best-selling memoir about being on the campaign trail with Hilary Clinton.

-The third season of 13 Reasons Why is getting trashed by critics.

-This is a very good look at fandom-led campaigns, specifically the one created to save The OA.

This video of Sophie Turner meeting Queer Eye’s Jonathan (who used to host Gay of Thrones) is a delight.

Victoria Beckham posted a photo of David dressed up like Elton John and it’s really what I needed to get me through this never-ending week.

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo are vacationing together. Cool cool cool.

-I HATE elevators but if I had gotten stuck for hours with Jason Momoa, I might get over it.

-This is tragic: Jessi Combs of Mythbusters died in a “horrific accident” in Oregon while attempting to break her own land-speed record. She was 36 years old.

-Just before its debut at Venice and Toronto, the final Joker trailer has arrived.
