A good movie villain is one whose memory still brings a chill up our spines. Great movie villains are the ones that had us checking under beds, in closets, and boarding up windows as kids. Be it monster, murderer or Martian, the ones that nearly made us wet the bed became our standard for fear well into adulthood. They might have even evolved into some of our favorite villains ever. Life goes on, though, after the credits roll. If no one made sure your villain was dead at least 3 times, odds are good he or she went on with their lives.
Villains, like many of our heroes, don’t usually stay permanently young. Outside of comics, where characters tend to stay the same age for decades to keep readers coming, we can assume our heroes and villains went on to live long lives after the big “The End”. They may have settled down, married, and even turned their villainy into a fulfilling career. Italian photographer Federico Chiesa explores the lives of villains in their golden years through portrait. The well-known photographer worked with Carolina Trotta, who created the stunningly accurate make-up work, visual effects, and styling for the scenes.
Coming off Fashion Week we are both exhilarated and exhausted. What a huge season, not only for the designers, but for us! We worked around the clock, resulting in our biggest, most extensive fashion week ever. We covered a combined total of nearly 100 runway shows and parties over the course of the week. We also attended the Fashion 2.0 Awards, Socialyte.co's Bloggers Brunch, Elle & Style360's Accessory Lounge, and CFDA's IMPACT exhibit. If you're wondering if we've slept, the answer is "No!" In addition to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, we also covered NOLCHA, also known as Independent Fashion Week. There we discovered standout, lesser known designers who have been flying under the radar; including Danilo Gabrielli, Vassilis Zoulias, and JetSet Collective.
Ok, so our day just got even better. Volkswagen has just released the teaser for their 2012 Super Bowl commercial. Once again they appeal to Star Wars fans, but this time with various canines dressed as Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia et al, while barking the 'Imperial March' theme.
This is just too good for words.
