Nobody in the music industry can replace Beyonce Knowles, an independent lady who with her immense talent and interest have actually entered into the entertainment scene long back in the year 1997. Beginning her profession with the group Destiny’s Child, the lady has actually not seen back and reduced. She launched numerous musical albums and sung numerous single songs during her profession with the group. All her tunes are noted on the hit music charts and are extremely sourced as by her fans. After obtaining a big appeal with Destiny’s Child group, she released many solo records that are extremely popular in America as well as overseas.

The very first home of Dereon pieces was first seen on every Destiny’s Child MTVs. While Beyonc was performing in the group Destiny’s Child, her mother Tina would create and stitch their clothing, especially when the group used initially starting out and did not have much money or access to designer clothing.

Options Regarding Angelina Jolie

Getting satellite tv could be the very best choice you make for you and your family’s home entertainment. Not just will you get hundreds of new channels so that you can see more video games, more TV programs, and more concerts. You will certainly also be able to see all the brand-new releases in movies. That implies you will be able to enjoy all the Angelina Jolie movies you want, whether new or old.

Angelina Jolie is the child of well-known star John Voight and has therefore had access to the Hollywood way of living from an extremely early age. She has also ended up being effectively known as of late for her relationship with Brad Pitt as well as her humanitarian work. She is actually a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. However, amongst all the distinctions or promotion she gets apart from the silver screen, one might forget that she is an achiever actress as well. She has actually won an Academy Award and three Golden Globes. With satellite TELEVISION and the number of motion picture channels, you will receive, you will likely have the ability to enjoy most if not all her movies.


Apart from her troubled love life, her relationship with her estranged dad was also extremely commonly talked about. A kiss shared with her brother the night she won an Academy Award sustained speculations of an incestuous relationship, which she refused emphatically.

Jolie won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1999 for her role in Girl Interrupted. Playing together with Winona Ryder, Whoopi Goldberg, and the late Brittany Murphy, Jolie helped make it an instant hit with the public. The motion picture happens inside a female ward in a psychological institution. Jolie brings a great performance of a disturbed young woman who normally pierces best to the core with her cutting words and blunt way of addressing others. While she appears to have tips regulated throughout much of the movie, she is a sociopath and vulnerable to violence. Jolie does a great task in stabilizing the two sides of her character’s life, making Lisa an even likeable and believable person. It is possibly a role you have actually not seen Jolie in, and for that reason all the more need to check it out.

While that remains her most acknowledged motion pictures as far as awards go, she also acquired recognition from a specific demographic in her role as Laura Croft in the Tomb Raider movies. While it won’t get you numerous award elections to play an archeologist that battles the tight in securely fitting clothes, it certainly makes you popular in the teen boy crowd. The storyline already had a big following due to its video games that had been popular for fairly a long time prior to the release of the first Tomb Raider film in 2001. As expected with any film adaptation, there were its critics. The motion picture was normally invited by the Tomb Raider game crowd; enough so to encourage a sequel in 2003. Obviously, these movies are made much better in high definition, which is supplied by satellite TELEVISION. You will certainly not only have more motion picture channels. When you go with satellite TV, you will have more channels in HD.

Lastly, Jolie was just recently chosen by the Academy for Best Actress in her role in the 2008 movie Changeling. She was also chosen for many other awards for her performing in this film. Take a look at this motion picture with the extended motion picture channel programs you will get with satellite TV. The film took place in Los Angeles and centers around the disappearance of a woman’s youngster in the 1920s. The police eventually discovers her son and return him to her, only for her to discover that it is not her son. The cops choose not to admit a mix up and she devotes herself to find what occurred to her real son. It is a gripping real story that loses some light on the corruption present in L.A throughout that era.

Kate Upton: future Angel?

“Plus size” model Kate Upton has received quite the media attention in the past few months. From sex symbol to respected model, Upton has climbed the ranks as a force to be reckoned with. She loves her body the way it is, and so do we, despite some of the outrageous comments made about her appearance. In fact, stylist Sophia Neophitou, who has helped cast several VS runway shows, didn’t have anything nice to say about Upton as a model:

“We would never use [Upton for a Victoria’s Secret sho]. She’s like a Page 3 girl (referencing the  curvy women often featured in The Sun, a British tabloid). She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.”

Upton took it in her long-legged stride: “I’m doing fine in my career, I don’t need to walk down their runway so it’s all good. She can think that and I can think whatever I want about her.”

The 20 year old bombshell has now modeled for Victoria’s Secret, Vogue Italia (November 2012), British Vogue (January 2013), and US Vogue (May 2013), as well as Sports Illustrated (twice), and GQ.

The model also has Youtube fame after a viral video and a music video in which she was featured, and boasts almost a million Twitter followers. Her fame has also helped spark the weight and body image debate, especially after a blogger dared to call her overweight (she’s 130 pounds).


Abercrombie & Fitch FINALLY Apologizes

The media has taken a sharp turn towards body image and how it is portrayed, specifically by the fashion industry, especially when it comes to models, mannequins, and clothing sizes. For some reason, fashion size expectations have been even more under fire than usual. There’s always some valid complaint regarding the unrealistic expectations of bodies (mostly female), but as of late, that voice has been louder than ever, and the headlines are smattered with size-related statements. One of the most popular headliners was Abercrombie & Fitch, for their (until now) unapologetic refusal to dress women over a US size 10. A 2006 interview with CEO Mike Jeffries said it all:

“We want to market to cool, good-looking people. In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely.”

His statement was met with quite a bit of backlash, in the form of viral videos, photo campaigns, and a petition with over 68,000 signatures. On Wednesday, the company publicly responded to the petition:

“We look forward to continuing this dialogue and taking concrete steps to demonstrate our commitment to anti-bullying in addition to our ongoing support of diversity and inclusion. We want to reiterate that we sincerely regret and apologize for any offense caused by comments we have made in the past which are contrary to these values.”

Unfortunately, the company is still quietly under scrutiny for not providing wheelchair accessible entrances to all of their stores.


Kate Upton on the Cover of Vogue

Twenty year old Kate Upton is doing more than making a name for herself: she’s helping facilitate a much needed and long awaited change in the way women are portrayed in the media. The bombshell graces the cover of the most recent edition of Vogue, where she is referred to as “the hottest supermodel on earth,”:

a90d42d2-4b62-49d1-bd9e-01193869c837_kateuptoncover_vogueWe must celebrate the appearance of a plus sized model on the cover of a high fashion magazine, marking Vogue’s effort to promote and picture healthier looking promises, recalling a promise they made in 2012. The magazine expressed an interest in the well-being of their readers and promised to not work with models under the age of sixteen, “who appear to have an eating disorder.” The magazine also encouraged designers to rethink how they picture, design, and market clothing, which often drives models to diet in order to fit into unrealistically proportioned clothes.

Upton speaks fondly of her own body, ignoring the preposterous “overweight” comments that have been thrown her way:

“The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”

The Dark Side of the Modeling Industry

The Devil Wears Prada gave us an insider’s look at a fashion magazine. The film, based on the novel, is the nearly true life account of one woman’s experience working for Vogue. Yes, names had to be changed and even some situations were tweaked, but the veil was a thin one. Meryl Streep’s cold character is known to be reminiscent of American Vogue’s Anna Wintour:

the-devil-wears-prada-2 6

The novel’s author, Lauren Weisberger, gives her honest account of what it was like working for one of the best known names in fashion… of course she had to disguise some elements, and leave out aspects of truth (like the fact that she suffered amoebic dysentery before being hired, leaving her rail thin, although still a target for criticism regarding her weight).

Last year, editor-in-chief at Australia’s Vogue was unexpectedly dropped from the work roster. One day after her surprise-firing, she was offered a book deal to tell her story. She took it. Kirstie Clements recently published The Vogue Factor, in which she recounts the things she saw and heard as editor. Clements recounts some particularly extreme dieting habits– which may not surprise you at first given that it’s the modeling industry and when isn’t there an extreme diet going around? But Clements recalls models snacking on tissues. Yes, tissues. This isn’t an episode of My Strange Addiction— apparently the tissues would expand in their stomachs, stifling and hunger pangs. Clements also reports seeing models on hospital drips. She also addresses the issue of airbrushing. So many people are quick to say a photo has been airbrushed to make someone look skinnier, but Clements claims that some models were so skinny that they had to be airbrushed to look less malnourished.


Adriana Lima: going against the grain

Model Adriana Lima was recently spotted brazenly sporting an interesting look: she wore her designer one-piece outfit backwards:

The Brazilian bombshell stepped out Tuesday evening in an Alberta Ferretti gown. What made the look so jaw-dropping– besides her sky high legs, toned everything, and entrancing eyes, was that Lima dared to wear the one piece outfit in a way not originally intended by the designer: backwards.

However bold it was of her, it seemed to pay off, as it was well received. Although it’s hard to imagine anything worn by Lima being poorly received. She is five feet, ten inches tall with a twenty-four inch waist, after all.

She wasn’t the first to try this: Angelina Jolie also wore a Max Azria dress backwards, and her moxie was rewarded. Amanda Seyfried however was criticized for the same choice in a different dress.

Lima has built up quite the extensive portfolio, but is best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Notable Achievements with VS include sporting the $5 million dollar Fantasy bra, and the $2 million Fantasy Bombshell Bra, as well as opening the VS fashion show five times, the last being less than two months after giving birth.

Lima is also a devout Catholic and attends mass every Sunday. She told GQ magazine that she believes sex is intended for after marriage, and remained a virgin until her own marriage to NBA player Marko Jaric (Serbia) in 2009. Lima also does extensive charity work, building homes and buying clothing for underprivileged children, for example.

Sexy Sevigny

Chloe Sevigny is a well known name in the fashion and entertainment arenas. Making it big when she scored a spot in Boys Don’t Dry, alongside Hilary Swank, she swept the scene. She now has acting, modeling, and designing under her belt. The Massachusetts native isn’t necessarily a household name, but she is making headlines with a new number she stepped out in that caused quite a reaction:


The musically inspired dress made its first appearance during New York Fashion Week, an event that Sevigny would be unlikely to miss, due to her intrinsic involvement with the fashion industry; she was once labeled the It Girl in the mid 1990s (once an It Girl, always an It Girl? Could I be an It Girl?).

Clearly the dress boasts a large violin centerpiece. Or is it a viola? Either way, it follows trends, giving an eye catching centerpiece, employing sparkles against a solid backdrop, several sexy cutouts, and it’s just avant-garde enough for you to not have in your own closet at home.

Pass your own judgements on the dress. If you like it, you should know it costs upwards of $3500.

And no, I didn’t forget any decimal points. That’s three thousand, five hundred dollars.

It’s actually more than that. Let’s not talk about it. In brighter news, Sevigny’s fame has stayed with her as she has become popular with the gay community, but avoids the limelight (she’s not partial to it), and stuck close to her family, even after her father’s passing in her twenties. She currently resides in Manhattan, NYC.

Kristen Stewart, in the eye of the Toronto Film Festival


A nervous and shy Kristen Stewart caught all the attention at the opening of the festival Toronto film when the star of “Twilight” appeared in public for the first time after the scandal of cheating and breaking up with her boyfriend.

Stewart, 22, made a public apology last July to her long-time boyfriend and co-star of “Twilight”, Robert Pattinson, 26, after he confessed to having an affair with the director of his latest film “Snow White and the Huntsman”, Rupert Sanders.

Stewart is in Toronto this week for the North American premiere of the movie “On The Road” by director Walter Salles, a film past the innovative novel by Jack Kerouac on freedom of youth and starring Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Viggo Mortensesn and Kirsten Dunst.

On the red carpet, Stewart was “a little anxious and was having leg tremors”, according to a publication.

The Canadian television said the next morning that the actress rarely looked at his face during interviews, and said that “she always looks down”. Stewart arrived at the airport in Toronto on Wednesday wearing a shirt that fans of “Twilight” identified as one of Pattinson’s. This was interpreted by fans as a possible resumption of their relationship with the actor.

Unique Exhibition of Marilyn Monroe Photos


Poland will host in August, a unique collection of nearly 4,000 photographs of Marilyn Monroe, some of which were never published.

The photographs were taken by the actress’ friend, photographer Milton Green. The photos belong to the Polish Treasury and got them as payment of foreign debt in the early 1990’s.

The collection, which came to Poland last week, according to Gazeta Wyborcza, spent over a decade in cardboard boxes in New York.

The photo exhibition will run from August 6 to September 6. The Treasury plans to sell after the collection at an auction, which the date has not yet been announced. According to estimates, the price of the collection will be around 560,000 euros.
