Robert Pattinson has been (understandably) flying under the radar since his world exploded when Kristen Stewart cheated on him with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman, but now Cosmopolis is coming out and it’s time for him to crawl out of his shell and back into the spotlight. Taking a page from the “looking good is the best revenge” chapter of the breakup handbook, R-Patz showed up to the movie’s premiere in New York City suited up in Gucci and making hearts across the globe skip a beat.
“Wowza, he looks fantastic! Thatta boy,” verstand posted.
“I've never really gotten his appeal,” ALAUU admitted, “but he looks AMAZING at the Cosmopolis premiere. His hair looks good. The suit looks good. Good for him.”
Wolkfolk gave credit where credit is due. “Looking good Rob!! Ryan Hastings [who also styles Rooney Mara] is such a good stylist, look at how perfectly this suit fits Robert,” he wrote. “Also the different shades of blue of the shirt and the suit work so well together and with the black tie/shoes. Besides I always have a soft spot for those wool ties,” he added.
R-Patz kept the handsome going strong when he rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange this morning with director David Cronenberg. “I like this suit better than last night's. He looks really good,” Alvedansen commented.
#umero went as far as to say: “Wow, single really really suits him,” and I can’t help but agree.

For W’s "Big Fashion" September issue, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot photographed Penelope Cruz styled by Edward Enninful in a dark turtleneck, navy blue suede gloves, and an eye-catching, bulbous blue and gold cross necklace. Charlotte Tilbury did the makeup and Pablo Iglesias is responsible for the big beautiful hair. There’s something lustrous and evocative of the 90s about the image that most forum members were drawn to.
“Absolutely stunning,” jmrmartinho posted. “I just adore everything about this, great close up. Not overphotoshopped. The text placement is spot on and I quite like how low the logo is. Very rich cover.”
ALAUU wrote, “Beautiful. This woman never takes a bad picture. She just smolders.”
GarageGlamorous commented, “I like this image a lot as a whole but I'm not a fan of the oversized necklace. Penelope's facial structure is perfect and they captured it as it had to be done, it looks very chic. Cannot wait for the contents, W's fashion issues usually stand out from the rest of the generic US publications.”
The necklace was a sticking point for a few other forum members as well. “That necklace is seriously ugly, it ruins that otherwise very classic and intense image, and it adds too much tackiness,” Psylocke explained.
MulletProof came to the necklace’s defense. “I absolutely love this – an ode to the early 90s. Just last night I was looking at pictures of that Versace era with all the jewels, golden pieces, natural makeup and voluminous hair, there's something so oddly attractive about it, despite how opulent it is, and how unpopular opulence has been for years now. So glad there's finally a September issue that's worth buying and looks like a keeper, the kind of issue you revisit years later. This is the W I loved – great covers and hopefully equally good content.”
Fingers crossed that MulletProof is right. W may not be delivering a 900+ page issue (I’m looking at you Vogue), but the magazine is still an innovator when it comes to presenting its take on fashion’s latest looks, trends, and styles. Can't wait to crack this issue open the second I pull it out of my mailbox.
Lady Gaga wrote up a memo extolling the manicure for the lastest issue of V Magazine. I've included some of my favorite excerpts below, but if that's not good enough for you, you should click on the image above to see the feature in full.
"BEFORE YOU READ, THIS YOU MUST BE AWARE THAT MANICURES ARE EXTREMELY UNDERRATED!"
YOUR COMMA, PLACEMENT IS INSANE. AND YOU ARE DELUSIONAL IF YOU THINK MANICURES ARE UNDERRATED.
"YOU MAY ALREADY BE ROLLING YOUR EYES, BUT PLEASE LET ME GET A WORD IN ABOUT THIS!"
I AM DEFINITELY ALREADY ROLLING MY EYES AND I WOULD STOP YOU IF I COULD, BUT I CAN'T SO PLEASE CONTINUE!
"I find that any woman—no matter how stylishly she is dressed—is instantly above the rest if well-manicured."
I find that any woman—no matter how well she is manicured—is instantly above the rest if she has principles and a sense of human decency.
"I know this may sound harsh, but perhaps if I beat it into you, you will CUT THOSE CUTICLES."
I know this may sound harsh, but perhaps if I beat it into you, you will understand that CUTICLES ARE A NATURAL BARRIER TO BACTERIA AND CUTTING THEM WILL ONLY LEAD TO HARDENED SKIN AND POSSIBLY EVEN INFECTION.
"SIX REASONS YOU SHOULD DO THIS:
I CAN'T WAIT.
"1) HAVING A PERFECT MANICURE INSTANTLY MAKES YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN."
THAT IS SO BORING.
"2) YOU’LL BE READY FOR SEX OR TO PUT A PENIS IN YOUR HAND."
I THOUGHT HAVING GENITALS MADE ME READY FOR SEX?
"3) IT’S A WAY FOR YOU TO EXPRESS YOURSELF (CAREFUL HOW YOU DO THAT)."
WHAT IF I HAVE ALREADY FOUND MANY WAYS TO EXPRESS MYSELF? (AND DON'T WORRY: I AM CAREFUL TO ALWAYS ONLY EXPRESS THE RIGHT THINGS.)
"4) IT FORCES YOU TO SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING TIME FOR YOURSELF."
SO DOES SLEEPING.
"5) IT BOOSTS YOUR SELF-ESTEEM EVERYDAY."
SO DOES BATHING.
"6) IT PROJECTS AN IMAGE OF SUCCESS, WHICH IS GOOD FOR BIZ."
THEN WHY ISN'T MITT ROMNEY WORKING SOME TALON CLAWS?
Miley Cyrus posted pictures of her new super blonde, super short, super punky hair on Twitter last night and she’s been a trending topic ever since. Hairdresser Chris McMillan is responsible for the transformation (it’s rumored that she donated her formerly long locks) and everyone seems to have an opinion about it. Miley herself tweeted:
“Never felt more me in my whole life,” and “feeling so happy in my skin.”
Forum members were supportive of the unexpected new style. “Wow, definitely didn't see that coming,” wrote ScarlettLover. “I love short hair so I'm biased. Have to get used to seeing it on her though. It has to be styled right or it goes train-wreck real easy. Kudos to her for having the guts!”
Caitlinand commented, “It's a big change but I love it.”
Fortuna agreed adding, “Wow she looks like a totally different person!”
This style is pretty gutsy and Miley’s clearly thrilled with the result. Good for her for trying something different. You only live once, and it's kind of Kate Lanphear-esque, right?
Karl Lagerfeld shook the earth, moon, and stars when he introduced humanity to his new kitten, Choupette. As The Kaiser loves to say, his little furball is the most famous of all the cats — and that isn't an exaggeration. Magazines want to take her picture and the Internet wants to Tweet at her because she is cute and her life is cush: Choupette has two dedicated maids, a private garden, cockpit privileges when she jets to St. Tropez. She is so much more than a LOLcat — a mere feline jester — she is a celebrity, a true A-list deity, and her rising fame is only elevating Karl's own.
Since Lady Gaga has a black belt in fame and is scared to death of someone stealing it in the night, it appears that the pop star has taken note of the great press and attention Karl's benefitted from by acquiring a super-cute new pet. Mother Monster received a dog from boyfriend Taylor Kinney way back in April, but she's only now started taking her pup out on the town.
A couple of days ago, the performance artist arrived in Sofia, Bulgaria carrying the canine in a Louis Vuitton leather handbag, à la Paris Hilton. But today she decided to go for a more provocative dog-carrying look, cradling the puppy in the armpit of her massive fur coat. The effect is very Cruella de Vil.
If Lady Gaga wants to channel a puppy-napping villain, PETA is, of course, more than happy to treat her like one. The animal rights organization has already released a statement reminding the pop star that during the 2010 meat dress controversy, she said to Ellen DeGeneres, “I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur.”
In PETA's statement:
But by wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.
If I were a betting man, I'd put it all on "just a pose."
