The video vault has been updated with 9 clips of Rose at the Cannes Film Festival. You can download the entire press confrence, photocall, premiere and interviews, it’s well over an hour worth of rare Rose footage! We owe a huge thanks to the wonderful Isabelle of Angel-Us.com for making this update possible.
I’ve updated the gallery with scans of Grindhouse articles from Total Film and Rocket magazines. Huge thanks to Gary and Stef for these! Mycah also scanned Rose’s small part in the Maxim Hot 100 issue. Enjoy the reading.
The latest pictures uploaded to the gallery have really only been seen before in their cropped versions and usually heavily discolored. But we at Rose-McGowan.com have now added them in all their glory. TheWB 2003 Image Campaign pictures are not official pictures though, so hopefully some visitors will not have seen them at all before. It will be like Christmas for some I am sure. 😉
– The WB 2003 Image Campaign Photoshoot
Lady R stepped out to the Chopard Trophy Presentation in Cannes tonight and an after party hosted by Dolce & Gabana soon after. She was looking oh-so-fabulous in a black mini dress by Colette Dinnigan, silver clutch and some heels and alternatively a sexy short strapless Dolce dress with gold accessories at the after party. She was accompanied yet again by Mr. Rodriguez. The first of many photos have been added.
Better late than never – Miss McGowan was featured in the April 2007 issue of Italian Vogue with a stunning new pictorial, in which she chanels the classic screen sirens like never before. The results are absolutely breath-taking and this certainly marks one of Rose’s most beautiful and original photoshoots to date! Thanks to much to our very own RoseRocks for making this update possible! :heart:

Death Proof Quentin Tarantino’s half of the Grindhouse double bill with Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror that quickly came and went at U.S. theaters, proves its worth as a stand-alone feature in the expanded international version prepped to preem in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Although overall impact of Tarantino’s homage to chick-driven actioners and auto demolition derbies remains about the same, pic’s second half, in particular, benefits from the further detailing it’s now received. Although Stateside engagements for the elongated Death Proof would probably not be commercially justified beyond locales boasting plentiful numbers of the director’s fans, overseas figures could be OK.
Designed to replicate the look and cheap thrills of ’70s-era exploitationers, the ultimate Death Proof differs from its sources of inspiration in three prominent ways: At 114 minutes, having grown by 27 minutes, it’s considerably longer than such films ever were; its merits reside as much in its dialogue as in the kick-ass action, and it cost far, far more than a producer such as Roger Corman would ever have allowed.
According to this article from The Daily Mail, the extended version of Planet Terror willÂ be shownÂ at the Venice Film Festival in September and open in the UK later in the year. It also has this cute tidbit of Rose from the amfAR event:
“I thought I’d have plenty of ventilation in this dress, but I feel as if I’m in a sauna,” she joked. “It needs to rain.”
It also tells us that the beautiful dress was by Elie Saab.
According to the Cannes Film Festival website, Rose, Robert and the rest of the Death Proof gang are still at the Croisette. Hopefully we will have even more new pictures to bring you this week. Meanwhile, I’ve added some more photos from the past few events they’ve attended. View all here.
