Vogue’s Andre Leon Talley is of course one of our favorite fashion editors, but his screen time in The September Issue, the docudrama about the making of the 2008 Fall issue, makes us love him even more!
From his admittance that he took up tennis because Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour told him to “lose weight,” to his unapologetic appetite for designer accoutrements like a Louis Vuitton towel and water box, Mr. Talley makes us want to not only take up tennis but rush right out and see The September Issue.
September Issue is due in theaters on August 28.
Looks like Gossip Girl‘s lone black girl (oh, wait we forgot about non-talking Nicole Fiscella!) is getting some company. The CW has just cast veteran actress Gina Torres as Vanessa Abrams’ mom!
Torres, who we LOVED in Chris Rock’s I Think I Love My Wife, will play Gabriela Abrams, a “free spirit” who lives “off the grid” in Vermont.
We can’t wait for this new injection of color!
Tom Cruise’s adopted son Connor has landed a role in the remake of the 1984 film Red Dawn.
The 14 year-old will play Daryl, the youngest in the group of high schoolers who defend their town against foreign invasion. Josh Hutcherson, Edwin Hodge, Adrianne Palicki and former stars of the Australian series Home and Away Chris Hemsworth and Isabel Lucas will also star in the war drama.
Dawn is scheduled to begin filming next month and set to be released in 2010.
Blindie sees big things on the horizon for the little Cruise man. Afterall, the original film helped put Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen on the Hollywood map and his father is sort of a box-office heavyweight. And in case you missed it, Connor played a young Will Smith in last year’s Seven Pounds.
Last October, Blindie predicted that Heroes hottie Dania Ramirez was going places–we even went as far as calling her our latest Ga Ga girl…and it seems CoverGirl cosmetics agrees!
The worldwide makeup juggernaut announced to People StyleWatch that Ramirez is their latest spokesmodel.
The 29-year old beauty jokes that the deal has “been in the works my whole life. I’ve always dreamed of being a CoverGirl.”
Zoe Kravitz sat down for Good Morning America‘s new segment On The Brink this weekend and talked about her famous parents, being an “It” girl and her ten tattoos.
Kravitz credits her mom Lisa Bonet for her unique style and says her mother, “definitely inspired me to…mostly to wear what I want,” but admits that she is “definitely a pretty even mix” of her dad Lenny Kravitz also.
On being considered an “it” girl, Kravitz says ” I think it means that you don’t have a job but people still pay attention to you, it’s kind of an insult.
She also admits to being influenced by her father especially when it comes to performing with her band Elevator Fight. “He’s an amazing musician and I respect him a lot for staying true to what he wants to do. He has that retro sound. He plays everything himself. He’s really into doing things live, authentically and that’s a really big deal to my band, we do everything live, everything’s you know, what it sounds like is what you get.”
Bidding neighbor Cleveland Brown goodbye, little Stewie Griffin says, “Bye, chocolate people,” in the trailer for The Family Guy spinoff, The Cleveland Show. “What the hell, he’s getting his own show?!”
Cleveland, a cartoon character from the mind of Seth MacFarlane, is the only minority character anchoring a new series on the Big Five networks, according to Entertainment Weekly.
We’re so excited to see this on September 27th on FOX.
