Over-rated: Selfies banned on the Cannes red carpet
Not only does this faux festival law, which is enforced merely by being frowned upon, give stars an excuse to avoid getting “too close” to fans, it’s their safest guard against going viral with a bad angle and basic bitch Instagram filters. Stars, they’re not like the rest of us. Did you know Vancouver has one of the most kickass photography festivals in the world that will actually make you — dare we say — proud of Canadian art? Our West Coast Editor Alexandra Gill snaps a picture in “No Selfies Allowed: Vancouver’s Capture Photography Fest”
Under-rated: SJP announces upcoming HBO show, The Divorce, set in NYC-based
Parker will play ex-wife hopeful to Thomas Hayden Church’s divorcee-in-waiting in a comedy that begins around where most “happily ever after” love stories end. Divorce isn’t the only hot topic for Generation Tinder. Vv Magazine’s Isabel Chalmers investigated going kid-free for life in “The No Kid Trend: Going Childless Is The New Handbag”
Neutral: Karl Loves Kendall
There’s something about Karl Lagerfeld‘s love of the American “it” girl of the moment — from Blake Lively to new muse and just-announced Fendi campaign star Kendall Jenner — that makes us feel less bad about getting McDonalds for lunch on Friday. Karl made Kendall the new face of Fendi this week, and we shamelessly bought a Big Mac trio AND McNuggets.
U: Ghomeshigate resumes…
After the insanity that was Rob Ford, the world spotlight is on the Jian Ghomeshi trial. Given that Slate is already reporting on the details of CBC’s internal investigation into the former Q host’s workplace behaviour, which the report (and subsequently Slate) deemed inappropriate on many accounts. Meanwhile over at Q with new host Shad, the show’s now called q. That should do it, CBC, that should do it!
Coachella — more like First-Class-ella. Okay, bad joke, but see how light-spirited you feel after watching couture-sporting celebs pretend to be flowerchildren in the VIP section while you are in general admission with a full bladder. We’ll see you at Osheaga on the grass. That said, even we have to admit the designer “boho” style of Coachella kicks ass — here are our top 5 trends.
Biebs got kicked out of his at-capacity Coachella show for trying to sneak in and Madonna got a major diss from Drizzy after sticking around too long on his lips for a kiss. Drake might not have started from the bottom, but it’s all relative given that he’s clearly at the top of the pack.
