This Picture of Eddie Redmayne as Transgender Artist Lili Elbe is Everything



It’s no surprise that the handsome Eddie Redmayne looks amazing as a woman in a picture that surfaced today from the production company behind his latest film, The Danish Girl. The newly-minted Best Actor Oscar recipient is currently working on his first role since his moving performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, where he will play Danish painter Lili Elbe, one of the first people to receive sex reassignment surgery almost 100 years ago.

The 33-year old transforms into Elbe with full makeup and a curly-haired wig in this sneak peek from the film, which is slated for release in 2016. While it would be great to see more transgender women in these types of roles, we can’t help but be totally enamored by Redmayne’s red lipstick and kohl-lined eye combo in this gorgeous photo. We don’t know about you, but we’re hoping to see more snaps before the film’s release.

The Just Cavalli/Graffiti Artist Suit Rages on

The battle between Just Cavalli and Northern California-based graffiti artists Jeffrey Rubin, Victor Chapa and Jason Williams continues to rage on. Rubin, Chapa and Williams claim that Just Cavalli ripped off some of their designs and incorporated them into its Spring 2014 collection without crediting them. What’s worse is that the plaintiffs say that Just Cavalli added its own graffiti-style tag in order to make it seem as if the design was original.

Of course, Just Cavalli wants most of the artists’ claims dismissed, on the basis that the graffiti artists failed to specify exactly which parts of their designs were ripped off and that the plaintiffs had “improperly expanded their complaint.” Sounds like someone’s making excuses on technicalities in order to avoid a payout. Just Cavalli says it was simply inspired by the graffiti, but looking at the prints the label lifted, the similarities are clear to see. Besides, if Just Cavalli wanted to create a graffiti art collection, why not hire a graffiti artist for the job so as to avoid a situation like this altogether? Or if Rubin, Chapa and Williams’ work was so dope and inspirational, why didn’t Just Cavalli contact them for a collaboration? 

Yoox, Luisa Via Roma and Neiman Marcus have been added as defendants in this case, as they were selling the collection in question. Whether or not the retailers and Just Cavalli are guilty of any wrongdoing is up to the judge.

Shoes, Meet Nails: Christian Louboutin Beauté Debuts Paris Boutique

christian louboutin beauty boutique paris


Christian Louboutin Beauté made its debut in 2012, bridging the gap between accessories and beauty. Now the brand has finally opened a beauty boutique in Paris. Rejoice, world! The new space sits in between the first women’s and men’s shoe boutiques of Galerie Vero-Dodat making it a must-see for shoppers looking for more than a new pair of heels. Christian Louboutin Beauté’s signature stiletto-like nail lacquer bottle was the central focus of the beauty boutique. Mr. Louboutin himself describes the unique space as a “small shop or a big shrine, but completely dedicated to beauty.”

The facade of the store is a registered historical landmark so Louboutin collaborated with interior architect Pierre Yovanovitch on the store’s intricate interior design. “When Christian reached out to me, we worked together on a global aesthetic concept. He showed me this faceted nail color bottle crowned with this black spear cap of galactic proportions. I immediately thought it would be compelling to establish a contemporary space, amidst this very historical Parisian passage, with design codes that redefine the new aesthetic approach of beauty so dear to Christian Louboutin,” says Yovanovitch.
