Margot Robbie’s underwater W cover: captivating or unflattering?

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie covers the December issue of W magazine. I’ll bet you barely recognize her, right? She’s submerged in a tub, and the feature is called “emerging star,” which is so cheesy. The concept isn’t awful, but it’s awfully hard to execute an underwater shoot. This cover looks so budget and artsy fartsy. Actually, Margot looks like she just smelled one as she holds her breath. That’s a terrible thing to say. This is a terrible way to treat a beautiful cover model. The photography is by video artist Bill Viola, and he shot Jake Gyllenhaal underwater for the same issue. Viola describes these photos as “very emotional” because they “bring out waves of feeling.” The results are not flattering at all to Margot. Let’s do some excerpts:

This crazy photoshoot: “I’ve been practicing in my bathtub. I am so excited. I’ve been holding my breath to see how long I can go without turning blue.”

Growing up with a pool in Australia: “It’s not about being rich, but everyone back home has a pool. And I was a total water baby. My mom couldn’t get me out–she’d put my dinner plate at the end of the pool, and I’d eat my meals in the water.”

On scoring Wolf: “The casting director took one look at me and said, ‘Go down the street and buy the tightest dress and highest heels you can find. That is Naomi.’ I came back dressed like that and read for Marty and Leo. Those heels were killing me, which is what I remembered most.”

She plays a con artist in Focus: “I now know how to steal a watch when someone’s wearing it. It’s an excellent talent to have.”

On soap opera Neighbours: “I was on the show for three years. And I spent the entire last year saving my money and practicing an American accent.”

On painful acting moments: “I learned a lot about pain and suffering during Pan Am. We had to wear very constricting period-correct girdles and bras. After that, I learned to read a script with an eye toward the undergarments.”

[From W magazine]

Margot was really looking forward to this shoot. The editorial isn’t quite as bad as the cover, but the whole shoot is a disaster. I guess it’s interesting in a “what were they thinking?” sort of way.

By the way, Margot officially signed on as Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad movie that no one cares about. I think the movie is supposed to be an origin story for Harley, but who knows. I’m including some new-ish photos of Margot at the Harper’s Bazaar Women awards (in yellow Rosie Assoulin) and the Australians in Film gala (in white Dion Lee). She’s busting right out of the yellow gown.

The Duchess of Alba, the most fabulous aristocrat in the world, has passed away


When the history books are written, I think most people would have preferred to live like the Duchess of Alba. The Duchess passed away today at the age of 88. She wasn’t sick for very long – this was a rapid deterioration after a lifetime of fabulousness. The Duchess is survived by six (adult) children and her young boy-toy widower, her third husband Alfonso Diez. The Duchess of Alba was the most titled noblewoman in the world. She was also one of the wealthiest women in the world, although her kids made her sign over a great deal of her fortune to them when she married her last husband, because they feared Alfonso was a golddigger. LIES! Alfonso made her so happy in her last years. She danced the flamenco with him at their wedding!!!

Spain’s Duchess of Alba, one of Europe’s wealthiest aristocrats, died on Thursday, aged 88, after a short illness, media said. The owner of fabulous palaces and priceless works of art, Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, known as ‘Cayetana’, was known for her flamboyant lifestyle and was the world’s most titled person, according to the Guinness Book of Records.

Two days ago she was said to be showing signs of recovery after being rushed to hospital in Spain with pneumonia on Sunday night. She had a steady stream of visitors including her sons, daughter and husband Alfonso Diez. A doctor treating her has been reported as saying she was showing signs of recovery.

According to The Olive Press a spokesperson for the duchess’ charitable foundation said: ‘She had suffered a stomach virus a few days earlier but had recovered from it. Now she has pneumonia. At her age, one thing leads to another. She is weak. We are worried because we love her very much.’

Forbes recently estimated her wealth to be in the region of 2.8 billion euro (£2.2billion). A relative of Winston Churchill, the duchess shared toys with England’s future Queen Elizabeth while living in England as a girl. Twice-widowed, she raised eyebrows in 2011 when at age 85 she wed her third husband, a civil servant 25 years her junior.

She was 14 times a Spanish grandee, five times a duchess, once a countess-duchess, 18 times a marchioness, 18 times a countess and once a viscountess, according to the entry.

With her cloud of white hair and face moulded by plastic surgery, she was rarely out of the Spanish gossip magazines.

‘I don’t like to talk about money. Many people confuse having cash with having assets – we’ve never had a lot of cash,’ she wrote in her autobiography. Many of the palaces, castles and works of art belonging to the House of Alba have restrictions placed on their sale because of their historic importance for Spain.

With estates dotted across mainland Spain and on some of its islands, she was known for being able to crisscross the country without having to spend the night in a property that was not hers. She also had one of Spain’s most dazzling art collections, including works by grand masters Goya, Rembrandt and Velazquez.

Bless her. That Daily Mail link has more info about the life and times of the Duchess. You can also read her crazy Wiki page here. I think she probably lived a very happy, full life. And if she wanted to marry her commoner boy-toy and that made her happy, what’s the big deal? Anyway, she was one of a kind. She will be missed. Mostly she’ll be missed in Ibiza, which is where she loved to party (no joke).

Kim Kardashian thinks she has ‘an even better body after having the baby’


Hey, let’s just be happy Kim Kardashian isn’t wearing latex in these photos. These pics are from Kim’s second promotional photo op in Melbourne, Australia to promote her Fleur Fatale perfume. Kim was at the Chadstone Shopping Centre. I have to give her credit – Kim never minds doing mall appearances. She’s built her career on mall appearances (and a sex tape). Her look here: a David Koma top and Atsuko Kudo skirt. While in Australia, Kim also did another interview, this time with 2DayFM’s Breakfast show. Some assorted quotes:

Kim on whether Lucifer’s Homegirl knew about her Paper Mag shoot: “She does [manage me], but I’m pretty in control of my career. Everyone thinks she’s this mastermind and tells us what to do and where to go. She was actually in Paris with me and I had dinner with her right after the shoot, and I’m pretty private about the stuff that I do until it comes out. So I told her I did a shoot and I was like ‘Just wait until it comes out — you’ll see!’”

Kim thinks Kanye is super-shy: “He’s so sweet. He’s so shy. Swear to God! I am way more outspoken than he is. I think in public he always does what he wants to do and he always stands up for what he believes is right and he’s taught me that. He taught me like, ‘Just what do you believe? Forget what anyone else is really thinking. If you love it, that’s what’s important. Stand by your decision — and own it.”

On her post-baby body: She thinks she has “an even better body after having the baby than I did before…and I’m very confident about that,” she added, noting that her recent nearly-naked spread “was just a little token before I have to go through it [pregnancy] again.”

She likes having “an even curvier body” after giving birth but: “I had a few medical difficulties so I think that might have contributed or in my mind I’m saying that contributed…maybe it was the 10 boxes of Krispy Kremes I would eat all the time, so I’m going to try to control that.”

[From Us Weekly & E! News]

You know what? I feel her about the Krispy Kremes. Usually I’m just a chocolate person and I can just stop at one mini-candy bar to satisfy my sweet tooth. I can bypass cakes and pies and most pastries too, but for the past two weeks, I’ve been buying Krispy Kreme donuts. I eat one a day as a “treat”. And they are crazy-good. I need to stop!!

As for the rest of her words… I can’t. You can’t tell me that Lucifer’s Homegirl doesn’t know every single detail about one of her girls taking off her clothes. Kris is the biggest pimp out there. Kris was the one bullying Kim into posing for Playboy, for goodness sake. And Kim thinks she has a better body now? Okay. If she thinks that, God bless. And for the love of God, Kanye is NOT shy.

Boyfriend Sends EPIC Break-Up Text, Cites 6 Must-Read Reasons for Split

Let the following text message serve as a warning, ladies:

You may wanna avoid dating any man who is unusually close to his cat.

We offer this unsolicited advice on behalf of Amy Nelmes’ good pal, who was recently dumped by her boyfriend in immaturely/hilariously/awesomely memorable fashion

“My friend just sent me this break-up message she received after 7 weeks of dating. My fav reason for split is #3,” Nelmes Tweeted upon posting the following text:

Amazing Break-Up Text

We’re not sure if this is a text message fail or a wild text message success… at least in the eyes of everyone not involved in the now-former relationship.

In the course of one message, this guy came across like a social media stalker… a crazy cat owner… and a stuck-up prude.

Don’t cry yourself to sleep over this one, Bobo. We think you’re gonna come out on top in the end.

Plus, consider all the other ways in which you could have been dissed, dismissed and dumped via text message:

#TransformationTuesday Breakup

Ouch. This is not the way you want #TransformationTuesday to go. Not at all.

Speaking to an Australian news site, Bobo said of her ex:

“He was 30, had a job, a car and a house. Certainly not what I normally manage to attract, so I thought I was onto something. He was a bit of a nerd, perhaps a bit quiet, but a genuinely nice guy all the same.”

She also said she’ll never again date a man with a cat.

Celeb Blind Item Who Wasn’t Ready For Her Big Comeback?

Blind-Folded-Man17This blind item is just sad. Really sad. The pressures of fame aren’t for the weak! Get the deets after the break.

March 10, 2009

This actress is C list now. Back in the day she was probably a B lister with some very famous boyfriends who were A listers when they dated. Our actress was also around for one of the most famous moments in Hollywood history. You might think she is old from the description I’ve given, but she’s not. She just has been acting a long time and it is taking a toll. How big of a toll? Well our actress has multiple movies coming out in which she is actually the female lead in two of them. The movies need press, but she can’t do it. She is on so many different kinds of pills right now that she doesn’t know if she is coming or going and barely can utter a coherent sentence that is not memorized in advance. The producers of the first movie she has scheduled to come out and have already given up trying to get her to promote it and instead have come up with gimmicks. The producers of the second movie want to get her into rehab, but she just wants to be left alone to live her life as she pleases. These movies represented her comeback, but it doesn’t look like it will last for long at this rate.

Any guesses? Take a look at the reveal by clicking on “Crazy Days and Nights” below.

Celeb Blind Item Who Kept Embarrassing Himself?

Blind-Folded-Man17This guy sounds like a racist jerk. Read the deets after the break.

This one didn’t actually happen at the Academy Awards per se, but happened at a celebrity watching party. A big and famous celebrity watching party. This D list celebutard embarrassed himself and everyone around him when he kept doing his “Indian impression” everytime the camera showed the Slumdog cast. Throughout the night he made disparaging remarks about anything and everything Indian until at one point a spouse of an actress at the same party told him if he did it one more time the spouse would kick the celebutard’s a**.

Take a look at the reveal by clicking on “Crazy Days and Nights” below. Are you surprised? Assuming this is true, I wouldn’t be shocked.

Kristen Stewart Nip Slip Shocks Fans, is Really Just See-Through Top

Perennially brooding actress Kristen Stewart took the stage at the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards Friday night when she treated fans to a nip slip … minus the slip.

The whole term “nip slip” implies that the nipple slipped out or was not intended to be shown to a massive audience. It’s not clear if this was any sort of surprise:

Kristen Stewart Nip Slip

In the second-most talked about moment from the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards (after Johnny Depp’s drunk speech), Kristen Stewart took the stage to present.

Her Still Alice co-star Julianne Moore was to receive an award, but she seemed more interested in the view Kristen was presenting her, and the entire world.

Hard to blame her in that regard.

There’s something to be said for a woman so confident and fashion forward to make areolas an integral part of an ensemble. Talk about style integration.

Mad respect, K-Stew.

The 24-year-old donned a sleeveless mesh crop top and cream-colored dress, which Us Weekly reports “sagged just a little too low while on stage.”

That’s one way to put it.

Making things even more awkward? Her ex-boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, was also on hand at the event to present an award! Boy did he get an eyeful!

The former couple didn’t appear to have much interaction Friday, but that should’t spark the obligatory celebrity gossip rumors, especially after Kristen’s “nip slip.”

See how it compares to other infamous celebrity wardrobe malfunctions in the gallery below and hit the comments: Do you think this was even a nip slip?

Or just deliberate?
