Ga Ga: G-Star Raw’s Runway Show With Benicio Del Toro And Wendell Lissimore

Blindie was front and center at G-Star Raw’s Fall/Winter 2009 runway show on Tuesday at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom along with Star Trek‘s Zoe Saldana, 90210‘s Shenae Grimes, and Make Me A Supermodel‘s Tyson Beckford.

We were pleasantly surprised to see Ga Ga-worthy model Wendell Lissimore walk the runway and cheered with everyone when G-star’s new “Icon” Benicio Del Toro came out to read Joy Division’s “Candidate” before the finale.

The show began with black and white formal attire reminiscent of the 1930s and 40s–we even spied a women’s variation of a bowler hat. The bygone era then seamlessly gave way to G-Star’s quintessential military stylings–early aviator and sailor inspired ensembles adorned with dramatic collars, and straps and buckles that would make Edward Scissorhands proud. Two live pianists played a dramatic classical score throughout that evoked the beauty and gravity of both the silent film era and the future.

Blindie is ga ga for G-Star Raw and we are making it our new religion!

Tyler Perry Writes Movie For Jennifer Hudson: ‘It’d be Really Cathartic For Her’

Jennifer Hudson‘s resilience and strength through her family murder tragedy has inspired art–at least in the form of an upcoming Tyler Perry movie.

“I just wrote a movie for her that I’m really excited about,” the 39-year-old media mogul told People magazine at the premiere of Madea Goes to Jail. “I’m hoping she’ll be able to do it.”

“Looking and talking to [Jennifer], there’s sadness in her eyes, but my thoughts and prayers are always with her,” Perry added. “That’s one of the reasons why I want her to do this role, because I think it’d be really cathartic for her to take it on and work through some things.”

Of the prospective project, Perry says, “[Jennifer] says that she’s been wanting to work with me for a a very long time and I definitely want to work with her. We just have to find the right time.”
