Hollywood has a rich history sewn with threads of movie stars, jewels, gowns and parties that would fill volumes for decades to come, and the most recent discovery of a warehouse filled with costume jewellery worn by silver screen greats such as Marilyn Monroe and Bette Davis, just adds to that old-school Hollywood glamour.
Hidden inside one of the many warehouses of a cramped warehouse lot, many of which dot the Los Angeles landscape, sits the Joseff of Hollywood studio which is home to one of the biggest costume jewellery collections. Tina Joseff, daughter-in-law of founder Eugene Joseff, has catalogued each and every single piece of vintage costume jewellery inside the small 100 square-foot room and they are each safely set inside delicate black boxes.
As to be expected of celebrities who don’t do anything in half measures, luxury mobile homes are their newest toys when on location. As is customary for the rich they have the most luxurious homes, sportiest car collections, most expensive jets, and now the most decadent “camping” vans known to man. Decked out with the best of everything, these mini-palaces are a home-away-from-home, with all amenities included.
Oh to be a celebrity and enjoy the freebies of their already privileged lives *sigh*. Even if the stars have not been nominated for their movies, they still get to enjoy the sweet joys of gifting suites and the delicious free presents given to them just for being a star.
The idea is that several companies give celebrities free products in exchange for photos of the stars with those products. They can either have their pictures taken with the product in the gifting suite, or in front of the huge press wall of that particular brand. The marketing tool is extremely powerful in the world of Hollywood, and companies have found it perfect for product as the power of association holds large appeal to the public market. Fans often follow the trends of their favourite celebrities, and this high-end and highly expensive marketing platform works wonders for companies looking to get their names and products out there.
When we hear the word “bomb” we run in the completely opposite direction and don’t look back until we’re at a safe distance. Bomb squads on the other hand are the unbelievably brave men and women who do everything in the power and training to ensure that the devices bottom line does not see the light of day.
Many people don’t really know that bomb squads have often seen really lean times due to a lack of team members, or lack of funding, but through their difficult times one of the most impressive teams in the world of law enforcement have still impressed the world with their sheer tenacity to get to the bombs before the bombs get to anyone else.
One of the most iconic dresses in movie history is about to go under the hammer and bidders are lining up to buy the dress that Judy Garland wore as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Collectors of film memorabilia are estimating that Garland’s Dorothy dress will fetch up to $500 000. That’s a large amount and it will go toward the only surviving Dorothy dress worn in the movie.
Dorothy’s Dress & Slippers
Stylists for the Wizard of Oz made several dresses, most of which have disappeared or not survived the march of time, but the current dress is the original worn by Judy Garland, and is the only one to remain intact. Set to be auctioned on November 9th, Garland’s blue pinafore dress and white puffy sleeved top will be amongst several other items of film memorabilia to go on auction.
We all know Gaga to be something of an enigma in certain ways and a complete extrovert in many others, one of those out-there-ways being her personal style. Lady Gaga fashion has always been extreme and individual and yet something about her style always rings relative. Gaga’s most recent show in front of the cameras is her fashion film which has been shot in five parts.
Lady Gaga Fashion Film
Gaga’s hit song ‘You and I’ music video starred five characters which have all taken on a life of their own. Since September 2011 Gaga has released a series of fashion films. Each film depicts a character from the original video.
London Fashion Week 2012 has just about finished and already the British Fashion Council has released its list of fashion luminaries for the 2013 fashion week. One name in particular stands out. Phillip Treacy, famous royal hat designer, first showcased his creative genius at the 1993 fashion week.
Treacy will be making his catwalk comeback after a 12-year gap. Known as the go-to-hatter, Phillip Treacy has been commissioned to design hats for couture creators such as Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander McQueen. His designs are highly anticipated and scooped up by celebrities and royals alike. Phillip’s 1993 debut comprised of black hats that were only stocked at Harvey Nichols. The sell-out collection was met with amazement as Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Kate Moss showed-off the designs. These ladies are supermodel luminaries and everything they debuted, from hats to scarves and scarf hangers would fly off the shelves. It started with Treacy’s call to Turlington from where it snowballed and before he knew it the supermodel alumni of the nineties were calling him and asking to be a part of the Phillip Treacy debut.
Monday marked the boat launch of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad event on the Thames River with a specially designed boat made from actual pieces of a Jimi Hendrix Guitar and bits of the Mary Rose. The boat with more celebrity status than most was launched as part of the national arts project and was crafted from over 1200 unique pieces of wood. Artists Lone Twin, the duo of Gary Winters and Gregg Owen scoured across the UK to build a boat that was representative of the culture of the UK with contributions from important aspects of history, with the highlights being the Hendrix Guitar and Mary Rose fragments.
Cousin to the Queen of England and holder of the title ‘Duke of Gloucester’, Prince Richard concluded his official visit to Malta just yesterday. The Prince’s main reason for visiting the small European island was to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Malta’s George Cross award, which included some interesting Malta museum excursions and a stopover at the Mellieha Bay Hotel.
Part of his tour of the tropical nation’s coastline, the Royal was also spotted visiting the Malta War Museum. Recently renovated, the exhibition of the local wartime display was first opened in 2004. Showcasing the daily experience of previous wartimes, the testimonial includes original film footage, memorabilia and artefacts from the country’s time of conflict during WWII.
The British High Commissioner of Malta made news headline when he wrote an article about Queen Elizabeth’s high regard of the tropical nation. With 2012 marking her highness’ 60th year on the throne, the span of Elizabeth’s reign is second only to Queen Victoria.
Not just a tropical island, the nation’s Topaz Hotel Malta boasts the lavish accommodation available to famous visitors. A destination fit for royalty, the contemporary spot is also a source of ancient history; holding a cultural legacy that even precedes the Queen’s coronation.
The nation has definitely gained the affection of the Queen, with 2007 marking her third visit to the island state. The locals were honoured that Elizabeth chose Malta to celebrate her diamond wedding anniversary with the Duke of Edinburgh.
