friday film: vampire party

February 3, 2012 in entertainment by Lauren

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here but some of the ads that will air during the televised coverage have already been released – and they’re great!

It was a toss up between a couple of the car ads for me, with VW’s Star Wars The Bark Side and The Dog Strikes Back coming in a close second, but I think the best of the bunch is Audi’s Vampire Party (below). If you want to watch more of the ads, the Washington Post has a good selection.

Enjoy the game… and go Pats!

(almost) at the movies: bel ami

February 1, 2012 in movies by Lauren

I wondered what Robert Pattinson would do post-Twilight and next month, we will get our chance to see.

Bel Ami is the tale of a young man’s rise to power in Paris via his manipulation of the city’s most influential and wealthy women. It is adapted from Guy de Maupassant’s novel of the same name and also stars Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristen Scott Thomas.

Bel Ami will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival later this month before being released in Australia on 1 March, in the US on 2 March and finally in the UK on 9 March.

lusting for: reiss lauren leather jacket

January 31, 2012 in fashion by Lauren

Surely I’m not the only one who feels a strong desire to buy clothing when the style name is the same as my own. So many brands use female names for their products and whenever a “Lauren” pops up, I always want it! (Is this perhaps part of their marketing strategy?)

The latest “Lauren” to cross my path is the gorgeous grey leather jacket from British chain, Reiss.

It doesn’t hurt that I’ve been looking for a light coloured biker jacket for a while now, and I adore the quilted sleeves and rose gold zips on this one.

Then again, at £375 / $710 / €465, I might have to keep this “Lauren” on my lust list until sale time (or second cut sale… or third cut sale…)

If you’re a little more flush than I am right now, you can buy your own version of my namesake jacket from Reiss in the US, EU or UK.

best dressed at the 2012 SAG awards

January 30, 2012 in fashion by Lauren

The Screen Actors Guild Awards last night were the last big States-side awards before the Oscars and, considering this was the final chance to experiment with gowns, I was a little unimpressed with the red carpet. I hope the stars step up their game again for the BAFTAs!

Blacks: There were some great black gowns including Emma Stone‘s Alexander McQueen tea-length dress, Tina Fey‘s beaded Versace, Jayma Mays‘ Reem Acra sequined gown and Stacy Keibler‘s lace Marchesa.

Whites: I couldn’t go passed Best Actress Viola Davis in her spectacular Marchesa gown but I also loved Julianna Margulies in Calvin Klein, and Rose Byrne‘s Elie Saab jumpsuit.

Reds: I think Michelle Williams looked amazing in her red Valentino lace edged gown, Kyra Sedwick rocked her cutout Pucci and Ahna O’Reilly was elegant but modern in Nha Khanh.

Silver: It’s a colour we haven’t really seen this season so far but last night, the stars loved it. Octavia Spencer wore Tadashi Shoji, Lea Michele wore Versace and Naya Rivera showed off her amazing figure in Naeem Khan.

I have two favourite gowns of the night – Michelle Willams in red Valentino (above) and Natalie Portman in her divine plum Giambattista Valli strapless gown with the oversized rosette. I thought Michelle’s shoes were a tad heavy for the dress so Natalie just pips her at the post this time – but Natalie didn’t do the red carpet so Michelle gets the photo. Whose look did you like best?

friday film: karl interviews karl

January 27, 2012 in entertainment, fashion by Lauren

As you’re probably already aware, Karl Lagerfeld launched his Karl collection for Net-A-Porter this week (check out the full collection here). The site went into advertising overdrive ahead of the release and in seemed to pay off because many of the pieces have already sold out.

One of the promotional materials supporting the collection was an interview with a twist – it’s Karl interviewing himself. I know it sounds odd but it’s really quite amusing (and it’s in English, in case you were wondering). Check it out below and have a fabulous weekend!
