11 Artful Fashion Shoots Inspired by Famous Paintings

Fashion month is in full swing! To capitalize on the runway spectacles that are happening in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, tons of museums — from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to the Allentown Art Museum in Pennsylvania — are opening exhibitions related to la mode. Art and fashion have had a long relationship, with major glossies inviting artists from Salvador Dalí to Barbara Kruger to direct or shoot their editorial content. But by far the most fun art-fashion fusions are the dozens of photo shoots replicating famous paintings by the likes of Klimt, Vermeer, and Lichtenstein. Here are 11 hilarious, odd, and sometimes even magical examples of fashion editorials inspired by art. … Read More

Exclusive Supercut: Big Hollywood Stars in Their Early Horror Roles

Many a young actor has come to Hollywood seeking fame and fortune, only to discover that the road to success is a long and difficult one, with plenty of detours and diversions along the way.

The Actors With the Worst On-Screen Love Lives

One of our favorite movies of the year, Sarah Polley’s heartbreaking Take This Waltz, hits theaters this Friday (but, heads up, you can watch it on demand right effing now, and should). In it, Michelle Williams plays a writer who jeopardizes her seemingly happy marriage when she falls for the handsome fellow down the street. Thinking back on the movie, we couldn’t help but muse that Williams seems an actress particularly unlucky in love on screen; in fact, she’s one of many actors who seem to have made a specialty of playing characters who are perpetually getting screwed, romantically speaking. After the jump, we take a look at the unlucky cinematic love lives of Williams and nine of her contemporaries (to keep it simple, we stuck with modern actors). Some spoilers ahead, so read at your own risk, etc.; agree, disagree, and add your own nominees in the comments. … Read More

Julianne Moore as Famous Works of Art

Julianne Moore is… Modigliani’s muse, a Klimt damsel, and a tousled temptress by Egon Schiele. Recently, this incredible photo shoot with the actress has surfaced out of an old Harper’s Bazaar and into the art-minded Tumblr-sphere. Check out the shots taken by the famous fashion photographer Peter Linderbergh, side-by-side with their original inspirations, as spotted by Museum Nerd. What strikes us isn’t just the meticulous styling, strategically echoing the visuals of the original artwork with couture. Moore is doing a splendid job channeling the subjects, beaming with vigor of a glamorous “cripple” by John Currin, as if she was a Currin model frozen in a frame. You be the judge. Do these do it for you? … Read More

See Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in HBO’s ‘Game Change’ Trailer

The first trailer for HBO’s Game Change — based on New York Magazine’s John Heilemann and Time’s Mark Halperin’s tell-all book — has arrived. Focused on Governor Sarah Palin’s entry into John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, the film sports Ed Harris as McCain, Woody Harrelson as his adviser Steve Schmidt, and best of all, Julianne Moore as the former Alaska governor. While the real Palin flip-flops about her decision to run for president — she said all bets were off, but then recently said it wasn’t too late to run — we’ll look forward to Moore possibly hosting Saturday Night Live in character soon. Check out the clip past the break, and let us know if you’ll be tuning in for some titillating El Presidente charades. … Read More
