Just a friendly reminder that the deadline for our Birthday Project is quickly approaching so please remember to send in your entries before Monday! Rose McGowan will receive the book on her 36th birthday in September so do not hesitate to send in your contributions now! You can see a list of received contributions under the cut so if you’ve already sent in yours, do double check that we’ve safely got it. If your name is not on the list, please re-send it.
Nip/Tuck will start cutting again in mid-October. That news comes courtesy of the FX executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour on Friday (Aug. 7). Nip/Tuck will open its sixth season on Wednesday, Oct. 14 and run for 10 episodes, which will take the show into December; the final nine episodes will likely air sometime next year. (FX had previously said the show would be back in October but hadn’t set a specific date.)
For decades, Hollywood has featured Bloomingdale’s in films like Moscow on the Hudson, Splash and The Mirror Has Two Faces. Now, Bloomingdale’s is returning the favor.
Bloomingdale’s, a division of Macy’s Inc., is celebrating the movies in the 2009 version of a major promotion staged each fall. The campaign, intended to stimulate demand during an important shopping season, is called “Lights, Camera, Fashion” and is being billed as the most elaborate since Bloomingdale’s began a series of themed fall promotions several years ago that has included art and music.
The campaign includes “Bflix,” five shorts that Bloomingdale’s commissioned through an organization called Young Indies Films, created by up-and-coming writers and directors. The shorts will be shown in viewing lounges to be set up in Bloomingdale’s stores as well as on its Web site (bloomingdales.com).
60+ new photos, largely HQs, have been added in the gallery from yesterday’s HFPA Luncheon. Being a huge fan of both Rose and Warren Beatty, I have to say that I am delighted to see the two pictured together! I want to say special thanks to Lisa for making this update possible!
Also, you can view a little video from the event here. Thanks to Blake for the heads-up!
Edit: Style info courtesy of Red Carpet Fashion Awards:
Rose opted for a white jersey cap sleeve Balenciaga Resort 2009 dress.
The fitted dress is printed with rows of tiny black dots, and is gathered on the hip and bodice giving Rose’s curves even more definition.
She paired her dress with a dazzling embellished clutch and tan pumps.
