Link Buzz: The Berlin Film Festival is Really Happening; the Jolie-Pitts Have Launched Their Own Wine

  • Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt were not the only people who opted to attend the Berlin Film Festival as if there weren't a whole fashion week happening across the ocean. [FabSugar]
     
  • Kate Moss is the newest spokeswoman for Kerastase because she can spokeswoman anything. [BellaSugar]
     
  • Here's a bunch of people that showed up at NYFW wearing the same coat. For some reason it's considered lame to wear the same thing as someone else if you bought it at H&M, but it's totally okay if it's from Prada. We get it, you're rich. [Fashionologie]
     
  • Mila Kunis is on the cover of Allure, looking all perfect and Photoshop-y. [DailyStab]
     
  • More news concerning the Jolie-Pitts: The couple is now launching a wine because no one's better qualified to muck up an ancient craft than two Hollywood actors who spend their time collecting children. [HaveUHeard]

Cara Delevingne and the Downside of Being Fashion Week’s Favorite Model

Cara Delevingne and the Downsides of Being Fashion Week’s Favorite ModelNow that New York Fashion Week is over, we can safely say that the biggest story to come out of the industry event has nothing do with inclement weather, delayed Marc Jacobs runway shows or John Galliano comeback tours. No, if there's one thing we'll remember for time immemorial it's that on the last day of NYFW, Cara Delevingne made a late night pit stop at McDonald's and Splash News' crack team of paparazzi was on hand to break the story in the creepiest way possible. 

Many people are intimately familiar with the slimy, invasive way strange men sometimes talk to young women on the street. Now imagine if you were a marginally famous figure and those overly-chatty strangers knew who you were and didn't really think you had any right to privacy. And you had to be nice to them because they were behaving in a vaguely threatening way and also had a camera, and you knew that everyone on the Internet would delight in calling you a "bitch" if they had a reason to. That's the nightmare which visited upon the 20-year-old British model (this season's 'It'-est girl) after she was recognized by paparazzi yesterday. 

We aren't going to link to the video or the story because we don't want to reward harassment with traffic or video views. Here's the transcript:

 

(The video opens with a shot of CARA ordering at the McDonald's counter. 
She doesn't know she's being filmed. The camera gets closer and closer to her.)

CAMERAMAN
We're gettin' our eat on with Cara.

(CARA turns around. She looks surprised but smiles for the camera.)

CARA
Hi guys. What's going on?

CAMERAMAN
We're hanging out with you Cara.

CARA
That's so funny. How did you get down here? That's hysterical.

(CARA does not appear to really think it's "hysterical.")

CAMERAMAN
We saw you guys driving by. We were working on Miley. And then we wanted to say … I saw you and I was like, you know what? It's Valentine's Day, I got to say, 'Happy Valentine's Day to my homey, Cara.'

CARA
Thank you so much, happy Valentine's Day. 

(A cut. We see Cara from behind again. She's doing something at the drinks station.)

CAMERAMAN
You're gonna be working Valentine's Day?

CARA
(Without looking up.
Yeah.

CAMERAMAN
I heard you got a new line for Valentine's Day.

CARA
"In Bed with Cara."

CAMERAMAN
In Bed with Cara?

CARA 
Yeah

CAMERAMAN
(Creepy laughter)

(CARA murmurs something indistinguishable.)

CAMERAMAN 
Let's see what Cara likes to drink … Get that Coca-Cola on, girl. 

Ahhh well, I'm glad Splash News thought it would be a cool idea to harass a young women just to provide the world with video proof that a near-teenager is willing to ingest "calorific" fast food despite her modeling career.

Don’t Have a Valentine? You Can Totally Get One On Chatroulette

So although we all know that 1) Valentine's Day is a big CORPORATE LIE and 2) though love comes in many forms, the only kind that's worth it isn't a one-day thing, you'd have to be an automaton to go through today without reflecting on your relationship status at least a little bit. Whether it's by wishing your partner a happy V-Day, sending a roses emoticon text to a good friend or painting your cat's toes red (def not animal abuse if he sits through it), few are strong enough to resist this wretched holiday.

I'm just saying: Valentine's Day exists. And the only way you can change that is by getting off the Internet or moving to Macedonia, and since those are clearly not real options you're just going to have to deal. 

Some people deal by finding a short-term intimacy fix: I hear that Grindr, the social networking app that helps gay men meet for hookups, sees unusually high levels of activity on Valentine's Day. Based on a quick survey of the Craigslist personals section … well, let's just say it's abuzz with singles looking to mingle IRL. Nothing says "love" like OMG EW.

For the sake of journalism writing this blog post, I paid a visit to Chatroulette to find out what the vibe was, whether it was more like "Dudes Not Wearing Pants" or "Dudes Strumming Sad Songs On Their Guitars." I hadn't been on Chatroulette since it first became a thing, so I was disappointed by how much has changed. Management's been trying to clean it up, which means you can't chat on webcam until you've verified your account/sanity by sustaining three 10-minute long conversations. Such high community standards for a website which traffics in streaming penises. 

I chose a photo of Raf Simons as my avatar because #dreamboy. Within a couple minutes, I was chatting with "Valon" from Macedonia. He claimed to be 25, like me. He was nice but the exchange was depressing: They do celebrate Valentine's Day in Macedonia. Talk about shattered illusions. 

Valon reallllly wanted me to be his Valentine, simply on the basis of my female gender, age and Raf Simons avatar. I'd say it was totally creepy but to be fair, if I met someone on Chatroulette that had a Raf Simons avatar, I'd probably ask them to be my Valentine too.

Beyonce Covers The Gentlewoman

Image via TFS Forums

Following her recent Super Bowl halftime show performance, here's Beyoncé photographed by Alasdair McLellan for the cover of The Gentlewoman, a completely different kind of platform. The biannual style publication has a singular reputation in the world of magazines: it's known for its wit and impeccable sense of style — a magazine for women but not a women's magazine in the conventional way. 

Even though the mag ran a cover of Adele two years ago (the singer was also photographed by McLellan), the biannual doesn't typically feature such big-name mainstream stars. Beyoncé is a major "get" for a publication like The Gentlewoman, but it's also in a way a big "get" for Beyoncé: the superstar can entertain millions of people at a football championship but then somehow, she still has something new to reveal about herself to a thoughtful, small-circulation British fashion journal.  

Beyoncé for President 2016 and I'm only sort of kidding.

NY Fashion Week: Girl’s Best Friend Diary, Day 8 — Gym Wear

To know me is to know that I’m not a person you want to be around if I don’t manage to get in an hour of yoga or a Barry’s Bootcamp class at least every other day. Unfortunately, neither of those things are all that conveniently located (one being all the way on the Upper East Side and the other being in Chelsea), so the only way to make it work on a busy day is to pack lightweight essentials with me so that I can run over at a moment's notice.

I have a pronating foot (my foot points slightly outwards when I run), so I need to run in a stability shoe when possible, but those tend to be bulky and heavy. So, I've been making some compromises and running in Reebok's Realflex, a neutral running shoe that's super lightweight and easy to tote around. I've also been stuffing American Apparel cotton leggings in my handbag — not the best when you're going to be sweating, but they're light and work equally well for running and yoga — and a Nike Dri Fit Sports Bra (luckily, Barry's and hot yoga are two workouts were most women work out in nothing up top aside from a bra). Add spare underwear and that's it! Luckily, both studios have full amenties when it comes to bath and body products so I don't have to worry about bringing any showering essentials with me.

Who knew that a fashion's girl's best friend would be her sneakers? And not even the Isabel Marant kind…

Dark is Definitely Rooney Mara’s Color: Three Standout Looks (Forum Buzz)

Rooney Mara took a dark turn the second she signed on to play Lisbeth Salander in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, and as the whole world has (by now) realized – dark suits her.

Currently making the rounds at the Berlin Film Festival, Rooney is sticking to a dark palette wardrobe-wise and it continues to work in her favor. She looked chic and relaxed in a Balenciaga Resort 2013 ensemble that forum members fell hard for.

“Absolutely fantastic in Balenciaga. She looks so effortlessly modern and chic.” Wolkfolk declared.

“She looks so good,” Chloe24 gushed. “Amazing outfit and the hair and makeup go great with it.”

At the premiere of her new film, Side Effects, Rooney stepped out in an Haute Couture dress with an asymmetrical hemline from Valentino’s Spring 2013 collection.

“I love how you can see a peek of cream silk lining on that dress,” HeatherAnne remarked. “It's a beautifully structured dress. I'm not crazy about her hairstyle, but I'm glad she didn't wear braids like so many celebrities do when they're wearing Valentino.”

Catherine88 called the Valentino dress “delicate but still very elegant and not so girly.”

Rooney Mara in Miu Miu

Not technically a completely new look, Rooney arrived at the premiere with a feminine Miu Miu Fall 2011 coat secured over her Valentino dress.

“It's really amazing how that Miu Miu coat doesn't look gimmicky on her (unlike most people who wore something from this collection),” LolaSvelt noted. “That's why I didn't even notice that she was wearing something from that collection.”

“What I find great is how all of her looks are tailored correctly for her frame,” before posted. “They could easily overpower her tiny figure, but they don't.”

Note to Hollywood: Please continue to keep Rooney Mara employed. We enjoy her style too much for her to step out of the spotlight (for too long).
