V Magazine Penelope Cruz
“V72: The Transformation Issue” is upon us (that’s V Magazine‘s latest issue to you and I). Not only have they got Mert and Marcus to shoot Penelope Cruz for the cover – oh no – but they’ve turned the technicolour image into a hologram that opens and closes her eyes when tilted.

Inside, the issue contains an interview and photo-shoot with a completely transformed Paris Hilton (seen below), who is claiming for the first time that her ‘dumb heiress’ image has been a publicity stunt from Day One.

With Lady Gaga, Anna Paquin, Karl Lagerfeld and much more, V72 is packed with goodness. View Post

Cannes Rachel McAdams Marchesa

Rachel McAdams

Today was the last official day of the Cannes International Film Festival. You know what that means, don’t you? A red carpet report, of course! With over a week of the most well-dressed and stunningly beautiful women of the world congregating in the South of France, I present you with the 12 of the most excellent ensembles.

 

Our personal favourite has to go to Rachel McAdams at the 2011 “Midnight In Paris” premiere, wearing a red silk organza and tulle Marchesa Fall/Winter 2011 gown. Tres unique romanticism. See the rest of the best below.

Penelope Cruz Red Dress
This week is Cannes Film Festival (a best dressed list is in the making), a week renowned for being full of the latest and greatest in fashion. They have to be pretty peeved that Penelope Cruz has stolen all the style, eh? Last night, she flew solo at the “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” premiere in Munich, Germany while wearing this lustful red Armani PrivĂ© Spring/Summer 2011 gown. Differing from the runway version, the actress took the dress from off-shoulder straps to long sleeved and I’ve never seen a sexier alteration.

Penelope Cruz Vogue Mario Testino
Seems like we are only one of a few people to catch Stefano Gabbana‘s blink-and-you-miss-it slip up via Tumblr. After Vogue sent the Dolce & Gabbana designer an advanced copy of the issue, a cellphone shot confirmed the June cover model to be Penelope Cruz! (The post was quickly deleted from internet record).

I just received a june Dolce moment in Vogue USA Thank you Anna!!!!! :-)))
Stefano Gabbana’s Tumblr

We have come to find out that the flawless actress wears the brand both on the cover – shot by Mario Testino – and in the accompanying spread. Was the cover shot on film? It is an absolute aesthetic treat, and total departure from actress covers of the past ten years. Best of the past decade, for sure.

Gemma Ward Tamara Pirates of The Caribbean
When your biggest acting role is Dollface in The Strangers – a role without lines – you generally don’t expect to find yourself with a mega role in a blockbuster.

Well, Gemma Ward has gone against all odds and landed the role as Tamara (Queen of the Mermaids) in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” opposite Johnny Depp. On the cast list, she is just two spots away from female lead Penelope Cruz. Woohoo, Ward!
