Jordan Peele Is Developing A Series About Real-Life Nazi Hunters

Share Button

 

Jordan Peele is set to executive produce a TV series called The Hunt, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

The Hunt is based on true events, about the American government helping to hide real Nazis from punishment within our country’s borders back in the 1970s, and the band of people who set out to kill said Nazis in the name of justice.

The show apparently began to be shopped around following the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, VA, and is drawing interest from several networks, though none are confirmed to have bought the series as of yet.

Peele starred alongside Keegan Michael-Key in Key and Peele for five seasons, and also recently appeared on FX’s Fargo. He also wrote and directed the massive horror hit about racism, Get Out, the trailer for which you can watch below.

 

Our 11 Favorite Looks From Gucci’s Legendary Spring 18 Show

Alessandro Michele’s Spring 18 show featured some of the best looks we’ve seen on a runway period, let alone this season. The collection took Michele’s signature powerclashing of textiles, colors, and patterns to new heights—floral quilted skirts combined with angular jakets and glittering jewelry, silky bodyuits met furs and Bugs Bunny cardigans, fanny packs met rhinestones and flare pants… it seems every concept that could be thought of for the hundred plus looks of the collection was implemented. And the results are breathtaking.

The collection draws inspiration from several nostalgic fashion moments—the 80s and 90s are both clearly visible in silhouette and accessories, while the haircuts tended to trend toward even earlier decades. Yet the collection still felt decidedly ahead of its time, a refreshingly daring and conceptual show blasting apart a season filled with several safe runways.

While it would be impossible to choose the definitive favorite looks from the show (which, by the way, incorporated low lighting and immense amounts of fog), we’ve compiled 11 of the looks that struck us most in the following slides.

Watch: Alicia Vikander As Lara Croft in the First Trailer for the ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot

Move over, Angelina – there’s a new Lara Croft in town. Alicia Vikander, who won an Oscar for her supporting role in 2015’s The Danish Girl, is stepping into the iconic combat boots for the reboot of the franchise formerly helmed by Queen Jolie.

The 2001 film, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and its sequel, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, both based on the video game, have become something of cult classics for their portrayal of a tough female heroine oft-sporting skin-tight, bondage-y outfits.

In the new editionVikander will play a young Croft in search of her father, as directed by Roar Uthaug and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. It sees her on a quest to seal a tomb discovered by her dad: “Close the tomb once and for all. The fate of humanity is now in your hands,” a voiceover warns in the trailer.

The film is scheduled for releases March 16, 2018 through Warner Bros.

 

Backstage at Palomo Spain’s Extravagant Spring 18 Show

Palomo Spain presented their Spring 18 collection at the Hotel Wellington in Madrid – a fitting setting, considering the queer menswear brand’s fifth collection took inspiration from the colorful cast of characters designer Alejandro Gómez Palomo has encountered during the past year of traveling the world, presenting his clothing everywhere from New York to Paris.

The collection begins with outfits reminiscent of bellboys and maids, and as the show progressed, so did its story of a day in the life of a luxury hotel – transitioning into garb inspired by Middle Eastern princesses and heirs to massive fortunes heading out for a night on the town. Beautiful silks, organzas, sequins and feathers starkly contrast with the use of everyday textiles like cotton and bathrobe-y towel material.

It also marks Palomo’s first venture into creating bags – for Spring 18, he’s designed large, chic travel bags in colorful leather hues. The brand also continues their partnership with Converse, pairing laid-back sneakers with over the top luxury ensembles harmoniously.

Take a look at some of our favorite backstage moments from the show.

Missy Elliott took to VH1’s Hip Hop Honors stage last night celebrating ‘The 90s Game Changers,’ where she performed her 1999 single “She’s A Bitch.”

Dressed in an all-black latex ensemble in homage to the song’s original music video, directed by Hype Williams, Elliott was surrounded by masked, latex-clad dancers and a pool of water that aided some intense splash choreography.

 

The night was hosted by Girls Trip actor Regina Hall and celebrated the iconic people and moments of that memorable decade (as well as paying a special tribute to the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma). In addition to Elliott, Remy Ma, Mariah Carey, Lil’ Kim and Ty Dolla $ign performed.

Here’s the original 1999 “She’s A Bitch” music video.

For Gucci’s Cruise 18 campaign, they tapped legendary photographer Mick Rock – nicknamed “The Man Who Shot the Seventies” because of his iconic photographs of Blondie, Bowie and Queen – to capture their new collection on camera.

Rock elected to skip fashion models in favor of real citizens of the city of Rome, photographing individuals who caught his eye in their own homes or on the street to fantastic effect.

“What helped a lot is the fact that I got constant stimulation from the clothes because they’re so fabulous, and they’re colourful,” he told Dazed. “I just went for the people that interested me.”

Gucci’s next release of new styles will arrive in just 6 days, when the combined men’s and women’s Spring 18 line is unveiled at Milan Fashion Week September 20.

 

 

The New ‘Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two’ Trailer Gets More Personal Than Ever

The new trailer for Gaga’s Netflix documentary, “Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two,” has dropped, and it further reinforces the concept that our world is about to be shaken irrevocably.

In the new clip, Gaga talks about why she took to such outlandish outfits so wholeheartedly; and also confesses to her chronic pain, the crushing isolation of superstardom, and learning about her late aunt Joanne.

Chris Moukarbel’s documentary premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month and received a standing ovation from the crowd. Gaga hadn’t actually seen the film until the festival.

“Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two” is out this Friday, September 22. Take a look at the new trailer below.

 

Lady Gaga Postpones European Leg of Joanne Tour Due to Severe Physical Pain

Share Button

 

Lady Gaga has had to postpone the European leg of her Joanne World Tour due to severe physical pain, as she explained in an Instagram post today. She was scheduled to begin the next phase of her tour September 21 in Barcelona and conclude October 28 in Koln, Germany.

She wrote:

 

I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word “suffer” not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.

Gaga recently revealed she suffers from fibromyalgia, which causes head-to-toe severe pain and has no known cause. As a result, she had to cancel her performance at Rock in Rio a few days ago:

 

 

She’s still scheduled to finish the North American leg of the Joanne tour, with European dates being moved to early 2018.

Vaquera’s Spring 18 Show Pokes Fun at Stuffy Fashion & American Youth

Designers Patric DiCaprio, Bryn Taubensee, David Moses, and Claire Sully, more succinctly known as Vaquera, have again poked fun at stuffy fashion shows and pretentious ideas of class with their Spring 18 collection.

The show was presented in a boxing gym in lower Manhattan—models stomped down a runway that twisted around a roped stage reserved for competitions of physical strength and endurance. Upon each seat a poem was written:

“I’m trying to think, About who I am, and what I want!!!!!!” it begins. “But instead I’m stuck on when I didn’t think about much at all. When my main dilemma was whether my outfit would read as surf when all I wanted was to be punk!!!!!!!”

As always, the collection appeared to tackle the concept of identity expressed through fashion—in seasons past, we’ve seen elegant chefs, women swarthed in gauzy umbrellas, working class attire and over-the-top Americana. This season seems to take a more youthful approach, calling back to middle school couture with its Abercrombie-reminiscent ‘Vaquera’ logos emblazoned upon cropped tank tops and fringed tees. Board shorts, tropical florals, and license plate-themed textiles reigned supreme, further reinforcing the notion of eight grade mall kids-gone-high fashion.

 

 

The show still felt, as Vaquera always does, very American, or, at least, poking fun at clothing that would, in another context, signify extreme patriotism. There was a giant t-shirt with Abe Lincoln on it, accompanied by a large cowboy hat. The characters created in this show seem more innocent than those of runways past, with their ripped tees and wide cut trousers.

Moments that truly astounded us included the final look, a giant gown made out of bathrobe material, as well as a floral dress with a giant bow tied on its front. We were also partial to the phase of the collection using a yellow checkered fabric, which featured a ruffle-sleeved, high-low shirt fitted ingeniously upon its model. They also struck gold with a pinstripe trouser paired with a skintight floral turtleneck. Take a look at some of our favorites below.
