Doc Corner: McQueen

"It's an excellent film, very well balanced, full of fascinating talking heads, and beautifully put together." -Edward L

"This should be the fashion documentary that makes it through to the final 5." - Peggy Sue

"I saw this in the UK last week. I was fascinated --especially the relationship with Blow and reflections on his gender politics. Would recommend." - catbaskets

Kidman in Cannes. Part 2.

Jose here. After abandoning us for what felt like years OK it was just one day Cannes jury member extraordinaire Nicole Kidman is back to show us how it's done!


Who She Wore: Calvin Klein (it was a CK party after all...)
Which Director She's Trying to Lure: why Lars of course. It's no coincidence that she came out as a dominatrix the day after that gorgeous publicity shot of Nymphomaniac was unleashed on the world. If I'm not mistaken, wasn't she supposed to play the part that went to Uma? Make up your mind Nicky!
What "Alice Harford" would think of this: "So, because I'm a beautiful woman, the only reason any man wants to talk to me is because he wants to fuck me? Is that what you're saying?"

Is it me or is she bringing her game back in a way she'd only been doing at the Grammys? Not only are these wider skirts a welcome refresher from her usual column gowns with feathers or studs, but she also looks SO happy to be there! 


...oh we're happy to see you too, Nic!

Not as fantastic as the Dior dress(that was breathtaking!)but it looks interesting with that cut-out details in the skirt.

Lol, i have got to say, i love that you're giving us Kidman in Cannes updates.

But yeah, she is REALLY stepping it up. I would be in total love if her hair were a deeper red. I know red is a pain in the ass to maintain but it looks so great on her.

Happy or ready to blow up balloons?

She is just flawless - the most iconic Hollywood style of the 21st century imo (not to mention the most daring actor, male or female, of the 21st century!) <3

Is it just me or is that a very Jacki Weaver-esque grin in the last photo?

Sasha -- same thing?

Jose, let me just say that you are doing the Lord's work with these Nicole updates.

love it Jose....
btw catch Bejo tearing up throughout the red carpet for Le Passe - working with Farhadi is that emotional.....

I'm glad someone else pointed out the Jacki Weaver comparison... perfect mother to her daughter if they ever work together.
