From Hollywood Reporter:
Stephen Lang personifies badass evil as Conan’s chief opponent while Rose McGowan’s snakelike witch is pure villainy.
From Den of Geek:
Meanwhile, Rose McGowan, as Lang’s demented witch of a daughter, Marique, takes the scenery chewing route, licking blood from her Freddy Krueger-esque finger blades, seemingly having the time of her life portraying a monstrous lunatic, which all adds to the films’ unashamed craziness.
From Today Online:
Leave your brain at the door, enjoy Ron Perlman and Rose McGowan hamming it up as part of the supporting cast, and have a ball of a boorish time.
The Conan the Barbarian World Premiere album has been updated with plenty of new photos these past few days and it currently houses a total of 214 breathtakingly gorgeous pictures of Miss McGowan at the event. Special thanks to Mariana for sharing her stunning high quality finds with us!
Here’s the designer information for Rose’s look, courtesy of Red Carpet Fashion Awards:
Rose dazzled wearing a Blumarine Spring 2012 halter sequin gown which is yet to take the runway. Her aquamarine ombre gown made her look like a beautiful mermaid with pretty pink lips.
With her wavy hair swept to one side to show off her Neil Lane earrings, she also accessorized with a Neil Lane large cocktail ring completed her look.

Yesterday Rose McGowan attended the 2011 VH1 Do Something Awards, was held at the Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood, California.
Rose showcased two looks at the event. On the red carpet she opted for a strapless star print dress with a sweet-heart neckline by Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011. Neil Lane earrings and ring, Lia Sophia bracelets, a silver Judith Leiber clutch and red Brian Atwood pumps, which matched her lipstick also contributed to the look. Finally big bouncy curls completed it. I really love this look here, it is one of my recent (if not all-time!) favorites, I must say!
At the actual show she spiced things up in a sexy little red dress and nude pumps.
In the interview Rose goes on to talk about her role in Conan, the TV movie she’s been filming (if you’ve been following her on twitter you are surely curious about it!), and her image in Hollywood.
Well, if you actually think about it, I’ve never been arrested, I’ve never been busted for drugs, never got arrested for drunk driving, never gotten out of the car without my underwear on. There’s actually nothing that I have done in my life that would actually fit the bad-girl image. That’s the funniest part of it all, and all of my friends know. That’s why they laugh.

Rose McGowan’s 2-year-old Pomeranian leads a charmed life.
Not only is Sasquatch one of the apples of her eyes (the Conan the Barbarian star also has a Boston terrier named Happy), but she manages to get away with everything, too.
“Sasquatch isn’t really great with toes. She likes to bite my toes and my hands and steal my underwear,” McGowan told People at Wednesday’s InStyle Summer Soiree in West Hollywood. “Happy is [better behaved].”
Happy, 11, and McGowan found each other two years ago. McGowan’s Boston terrier Fester had recently died, and her beloved first Boston, Bug, was not doing well. So McGowan turned to the Boston Brigade rescue and adopted Happy.
“I got him because I knew Bug wanted to die, and it was like she didn’t want to leave me without knowing I would be taken care of,” McGowan tells Modern Dog in its summer issue. “It gave her peace, or something.”
When Bug died last June, McGowan decided to rescue Sasquatch, a mini-Pomeranian who once belonged to a hoarder. Sasquatch, Happy and McGowan are all better off together.
Rose McGowan is featured in The New York Times discussing her love of the Hollywood golden age in the 1930s and ’40s. She was photographed with her beloved RKO letters (that we’ve often heard about!) and discussed the film studio a bit. Its a swell little article! Read it in the library and view the image in the gallery.
Ms. McGowan is the rare actress who manages to land somewhere between femme fatale and madcap heiress. (She’s quick to quote Jessica Rabbit: “I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.”) If there is any actress she identifies with, it’s Barbara Stanwyck. “I love how she could play sexy and funny, and how she never stopped working,” she said. She also noted that she recently suffered an injury trying to pick grapefruit in her backyard in high heels.

Last night was the big Hollywood premiere of Conan the Barbarian. Rose McGowan was in attendance – showing off how gorgeous she is and playing up her glamour to the max (quite the opposite of her character Marique!) in a bold sequined dress with blue and green. Pretty pink lips, side swept curls and gold accessories completed her ensemble. Simply divine!

On Wednesday, Rose McGowan stepped out at the 10th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree. Rose looked stunning in an orange wrap cocktail dress with teal accessories and snakeskin shoes and clutch. Her hair was styled straight which I think looks fabulous on her!

Conan the Barbarian’s Rose McGowan was raised by drag queens, has a lesbian posse, and gets twitchy in straight crowds. Is it any wonder that she’s a better marriage equality activist than her gay friends?
Are you bisexual?
No. I disappoint myself. I’ve never even kissed a girl. Isn’t that funny? The girls I think are cute look like guys, but then I think, But if they open their shirt, they’ll have breasts. You know that guy Brad [Goreski], who was Rachel Zoe’s assistant? I’d be attracted to a girl version of him.
As a vocal supporter of marriage equality, you participated in the No H8 Campaign.
My sister is gay. Before I broke up with my fiancé, it seemed absurd to have my sister at a wedding that she couldn’t have if she wanted to. I would still have great hesitation about getting married. I’d feel like such a hypocrite, walking down the aisle past all of my best friends who can’t. I was furious with how horribly the whole Prop. 8 campaign was run in California. It broke my heart the night Prop. 8 passed. I’m out there on Santa Monica Blvd. with crowds of people, and the world is watching, but all the anti-Prop. 8 protestors did was put up the same non-telegenic people with the same speeches, not understanding how it works. Their money was totally mismanaged. I really want California to get it together like New York has.
