The Louis Vuitton cruise show in Rio de Janeiro today showcased designer Nicolas Ghesquière’s affinity for all things sci-fi and tech, starting with a UFO-shaped venue. Set on a cliff overlooking Brazil's Guanabara Bay, the futuristic Niterói Contemporary Art Museum was the perfect setting for the collection’s spacesuit-like dresses and sleek jackets — all fit for a modern Star Trek.Read More »
The upcoming female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot — starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones — has faced a particularly high amount of sexist backlash following the release of its official trailer a few months ago, which quickly became the most-disliked movie trailer in YouTube history. Someone who won't be bothered with the negative response and internet trolling, though? McCarthy herself. "All those comments — ‘You’re ruining my childhood!’ I mean, really,” she said in a new interview with The Guardian. “Four women doing any movie on earth will destroy your childhood? I have a visual of those people not having a Ben [Falcone, her husband], not having friends, so they’re just sitting there and spewing hate into this fake world of the internet. I just hope they find a friend.” McCarthy: 1. The commentariat: 0.
Starting at 3:15 p.m., the Louis Vuitton cruise 2017 show will stream from Rio, right here!
In court documents filed this week to obtain a restraining order against Johnny Depp, citing domestic abuse, Amber Heard claims that Depp was "verbally and physically abusive" to her "during the entirety" of their relationship. In the newly released official documents, Heard — who married Depp in February 2015 after living with him since 2012 — recounts a notable instance of Depp's behavior that occurred on her 30th birthday in April. He showed up "inebriated and high" to her birthday party at their Los Angeles residence, and after their guests left Heard states "Johnny grabbed me by the hair and violently shoved me to the floor. Johnny was also screaming and threatening me, taunting me to stand up...breaking nearly everything in his path."
In the past year or so, Amy Schumer has found a new favorite topic: the pitfalls of fame. It's not all fun and games and J.Law jet-ski rides! Or, as she told Vanity Fair, addressing her critics: "Can we just skip this thing where I become famous and then you guys look to burn me at the stake for something?”Read More »
The summer that Kara Walker debuted her A Subtlety: Or, the Marvelous Sugar Baby, a 40-foot-high homage to the people forced into unpaid slave labor for the sugar trade, Instagram was overrun not only with arty pictures of her sugar sculpture but the frequently tasteless selfies of onlookers tweaking the sculpture's nipples or grabbing her vulva. Walker delighted in filming people acting inappropriately in front of the sphinx's ten-foot-high vagina, saying, "I get a sort of kick out of the hyper essay writing, that there's gotta be this way to sort of control human behavior." People will be people, she said. And Instagram makes us all arts critics and art assholes, simultaneously.Read More »
The two-handed backhand, the splits, walking around in Lycra: We all know these are Williams sisters' strong suits, but now you can add "being world-class stage performers" to the mix. As it happens, Serena and Venus Williams hold an annual private tournament aptly named the Williams Invitational. The event consists of a tennis match, Ping-Pong and dodgeball games, and — best of all — a dance competition.Read More »

Days after Amber Heard filed for divorce from Johnny Depp, TMZ reports that Heard is seeking a restraining order against Depp and citing domestic abuse. Heard reportedly arrived in court on Friday with a bruised face and has requested a temporary restraining order due to an immediate threat of harm. She claims Depp physically assaulted her on Saturday and offered her money to "stay quiet," after which she filed for divorce on Monday. (TMZ notes that Depp has been out of town promoting Alice Through the Looking Glass since Wednesday.) Heard says she has been the victim of repeated domestic violence during their one-year marriage, bringing photos allegedly containing evidence of abuse with her to court. TMZ has obtained a photo of Heard's injury, which shows a large bruise around one of her eyes.

Gordon Ramsay is many things — a citizen of the U.K., a chef, a TV star — but, primarily, he is a yeller. Ramsay is an indiscriminate, passionate screamer who raises his voice at adults and children alike. He even referred to someone as a “panini head” once, which is a brutal (and delicious) own. I am terrified of this man Gordon Ramsay. And now, I am terrified of this baby who looks like Gordon Ramsay.
There are few celebrities who can pull of the scruffy artist look, but somehow Shia LaBeouf makes the paint on his corduroys appear well-earned. His impressive collection of perfectly worn-in vintage tees, jorts, and even the rat-tail-eyebrow-ring combo don't come off as affectation. The actor knows how to accessorize, too, be it with a gallon of water or an Army backpack slung over a maroon tux. Decide which LaBeouf look is your favorite in the slideshow ahead — between the bright running leggings, the Gucci loafers he wore on the set of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and the dopey Even Stevens–era baggy suits, there’s plenty to choose from.
The conventional wisdom for summer beauty goes something like this: Use a primer so your makeup won't melt. Powder your face early and often. Use enough humidity-fighting hairspray to puncture the ozone! It's exhausting.
Instead of fighting the summer heat, what if you embraced it? That's what the Cut imagined when it captured three friends, Naima, Dasha, and Lorelei, hanging out in a park in downtown New York. Using a minimal amount of makeup and hair products, the three women show that your best bet to beat the dog days of summer is to give in to them.
While we may never fully understand what it's like to be a teen in the era of Snapchat, sexting, and the closing of the American shopping mall, that doesn't mean we adults will stop trying to learn. In a new, excellent story for the Washington Post, writer Jessica Contrera investigates the life of a 13-year-old girl. One thing she learns — of the many — is that teens obsessively curate their Instagram feeds.Read More »
