Harry Styles Wears Gucci at ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ New York Photo Call

Harry Styles looked to his go-to designer brand for his latest red carpet appearance.

The Grammy-winning musician attended the photo call event for his upcoming film “Don’t Worry Darling” on Monday night in New York wearing a suit from Gucci. Styles’ look was a blue velvet suit jacket accented with gold buttons paired with oversize pinstripe trousers. His look was styled by Harry Lambert.

Styles joined director Olivia Wilde on the red carpet, as well as co stars Nick Kroll, Gemma Chan and Sydney Chandler.

This is Styles latest standout Gucci moment during the press tour for “Don’t Worry Darling.” Styles made his Venice Film Festival debut earlier this month where he attended the film’s premiere wearing a Gucci suit from his collaboration with the design house — a navy blue suit worn over a light blue dress shirt designed with an exaggerated collar.

Styles then attended the Toronto International Film Festival the following week to debut his other new film, “My Policeman,” where he again wore Gucci. This time, Styles opted for an emerald green, double-breasted suit jacket embellished with a matching satin oversize floral pin paired with lime green trousers. He accessorized the look with the Gucci Bamboo 1947 top handle bag.

“Don’t Worry Darling” hits theaters on Friday. The psychological thriller tells the story of Jack and Alice Chambers, a young couple in the ’50s living in Victory, California, a company town that has been created and paid for by Jack’s employer. Alice becomes curious about her husband’s line of work, which causes tension between the couple and their seemingly utopian lives.

This Lykan Hypersport Was Frankensteined From Fiberglass and Porsche Parts. Now It’s up for Auction.

You know those used car listings that claim “no stories,” where a vehicle is of such faultless history and pure lineage that it requires no qualification? Well, this isn’t one of those cars.

This particular story goes like this: When VINwiki founder Ed Bolian was hunting down a blown-up Lamborghini Murcielago V-12 powerplant to create a “steampunk chandelier” for his garage, he found a seller who was willing to throw in the body shell of a Lykan Hypersport. 

The aggressively named Lebanese supercar is manufactured by UAE-based W Motors, and rose to prominence after being featured in Fast and Furious 7. Only 7 of the original cars exist in total; this particular shell was not used in the film, but was intended for use in a Fast and Furious live show.

Since the real deal Hypersport was based on a Boxster chassis and modified by Ruf, Bolian and his cohort Casey Putsch of Genius Garage hunted down a 2007 Porsche Boxster S as a donor car so they could mate the bodywork to a functioning chassis. The build process was documented in this YouTube playlist, and as Putsch puts it, “This will never be a Porsche Boxster again.”

The Lykan Hypersport Supercar reportedly drives perfectly.

The story takes a human interest twist when we get to the workforce used to painstakingly Frankenstein the fiberglass body onto the Porsche platform (which no doubt required stretching, shimmying, and squeezing in order to connect the disparate mechanical dots): Putsch’s Genius Garage utilized engineering students, whose practical experience on the project gave them an unusual perspective on what makes a functioning automobile tick. W Motors guided the team on how to make all those mismatched parts fit together, and its CEO provided a letter and a commemorative roof plaque.
While Putsch says the car “drives perfectly,” he also discloses a few caveats like a check engine light, a tire pressure warning light, and an off-road-use only stipulation. The car is currently for sale on Bring a Trailer, with proceeds going to Genius Garage, which is a 501 C3 nonprofit with a self-described mission of “bridging the gap between academia and industry to help kickstart the careers of college engineering students.” 

The ersatz Hypersport has already reached a six-figure price on Bring a Trailer—not quite the original Lykan’s $3.6 million value, but still significant considering its convoluted provenance. Putsch says, “Histories and stories are what set great cars apart from historic cars. This car definitely has an awesome story.”

‘Jurassic World’-inspired Collection Debuts to Help Artisans

‘Jurassic World’-inspired Collection Debuts to Help Artisans

PRESERVING THE PAST: With “Jurassic World Dominion” headed to theaters this summer, Accompany is trying to reel in some of those fans and socially conscious-minded shoppers by launching a capsule collection with the nonprofit retailer Ten Thousand Villages.
Accompany and Universal Pictures have joined forces for a capsule collection through a partnership with the film franchise “Jurassic World.”
The blockbuster will premiere in theaters in the U.S. on June 3. For the Jurassic World x Accompany collection, apparel, home goods and gift items are being offered for adults and children with all of the handcrafted goods being made by artisan nonprofits in India and Nepal. Accompany, which focuses on socially impactful design-driven commerce, aims to capture dinosaur-loving movie fans and mindful shoppers alike with items that support marginalized artisan communities and strengthens their socioeconomic status. In doing so, the company helps to keep the artisans’ culture and crafts going.

As an indicator of interest in values-based shopping, the 2020 Zeno Strength of Purpose study reported that consumers are four to six times more likely to buy from, trust, champion and defend companies with a strong purpose. Eight thousand consumers evaluated 75 companies and brands for the survey.
Ten Thousand Villages is a nonprofit that markets ethically made, handcrafted products that are made by artisans in more than 25 countries where marginalization and economic disempowerment are factors.
“Jurassic World Dominion” is the sixth installment in the Jurassic World franchise. It is also the third film in a trilogy, centering on themes of coexistence and legacy. The licensed products are inspired by the Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment film. Hand weaving, wood carving and other age-old techniques are used for the “Jurassic World”-inspired children’s items and home goods and kitchenware. Think terry cloth towels with a dinosaur-shaped hood and tail, or cotton pillows handprinted with the film’s T. Rex skeleton logo. There are also tote bags printed with dinosaur teeth prints and other accents. Retail prices range from $13 to $100 and the collection is available online via Accompany and through the exclusive retail partner Ten Thousand Villages.
As a nod to “Jurassic World Dominion’s” feminist theme of STEM-advancing women, the cobranded collection will help to protect and strengthen women’s rights in underserved communities. Accompany has teamed with Ten Thousand Villages to connect with artisans through two nonprofit fair trade networks — Sasha, a supporter of 5,000-plus artisans in India — the majority of whom are women, and Nepal’s Finest, a Nepal-based organization that is dedicated to improving the socioeconomic status of thousands of marginalized craftspeople and their families.

Cairo International Film Festival has announced the dates for its 44th edition, which will be held from November 13 to November 22, 2022, at the Cairo Opera House. Holding true to tradition, the award-winning films will be screened the day after the closing ceremony, November 23. Submissions for the event are set to open via the festival’s website on May 15 and close on August 15, 2022.
“Preparations for the festival have started already and we are hoping to achieve an edition worthy of the festival legacy,” stated actor and festival president Hussein Fahmi. Festival director Amir Ramses echoed Fahmi’s statement, saying, “We have already started to watch , invite and follow up on the expected important films of the year along with the programming team.”
In the 43rd edition of the festival, a total of 98 films varying from as many as 63 countries participated. This is inclusive of 27 world premieres, seven international premieres, 44 MENA premieres and 15 Arab and North African premieres. The diversity and creativity of the festival’s contributors is what holds the event at such high regard, even on an international level.
Previously, the festival has featured Egyptian actor Nelly and presented her the career achievement award for her contribution to art. Renowned Egyptian actor Karim Abel Aziz has also received recognition with the Faten Hamama award for his artistic contributions, while other honorary awards were presented to Cannes film festival director Thierry Frémaux, Indian composer AR Rahman, American producer Lawrence Binder and French producer and distributor Eric Lagesse.

A Look Inside the New York ‘House of Gucci’ Premiere

A Look Inside the New York ‘House of Gucci’ Premiere

If ever there was a time for wearing head-to-toe Gucci monogram, the “House of Gucci” premiere was it.On Tuesday night, many guests at the film’s New York premiere obliged the opportunity, donning Gucci everything: shoes, bandanas, bags, pants, tops, skirts, dresses — anything that GG can be tacked on was represented in the theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
The film’s ensemble cast was all in attendance, including Lady Gaga dressed in custom Giorgio Armani Privé, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jack Huston, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek and Jeremy Irons. (Leto and Hayek were dressed in Gucci; later that night, Jared Leto later swapped his Gucci for a Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello look for his appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”)

Other celebrity guests at the premiere and after party at Top of the Rock included Billy Porter, Zac Posen, Andy Cohen, Julia Fox, Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl.
Director Ridley Scott and his producer wife Giannina Facio welcomed the cast onstage before the screening. “One thing I can’t remember are lines, so I’m gonna have to read it. I’d never make an actor,” said Scott, unfolding a piece of paper. “This film has been carried by our producer, also my wife, for over 20 years. That’s a hell of a pregnancy.”
“Great scripts attract great actors, and we have an informidable cast,” he added. “In brief, the story can be described as a comedy of errors which seize tragic events. I think it’s best described as a very posh satire. It is kind of satirical.”
Walking onstage, Leto (“always looking gorgeous and fashionable,” said Facio) cupped his hands around his mouth and shouted “hello” into the cavernous theater. Pacino flashed a thumbs-up to the crowd as the cast shuffled back into the wings, and onto the next press appearance.

Everything to Know About the Upcoming ‘Barbie’ Movie

Everything to Know About the Upcoming ‘Barbie’ Movie

An official “Barbie” movie is coming.
Margot Robbie will star in the titular role with Ryan Gosling playing her boyfriend, Ken. The movie will be directed by Greta Gerwig, who has also worked on big projects such as “Little Women” and “Ladybird.” Noah Baumbach, also a well-known filmmaker and Gerwig’s partner, cowrote the script with Gerwig. The two share a son.
Though very little is known about the film, it reportedly will begin production next year with a release date of sometime in 2023.
In July, Variety confirmed that Gerwig will be directing the upcoming comedy, after Robbie casually mentioned her directorial role during her interview with British Vogue in June.
“It comes with a lot of baggage,” the actress told the publication of playing the iconic role of Barbie. “And a lot of nostalgic connections. But with that comes a lot of exciting ways to attack it. People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t.’”

Deadline was the first to confirm that Gosling signed to play the role of Ken on Friday, though he reportedly initially passed on the project due to his busy schedule.
Fans are eager to know more about the film and they can expect some fresh, new twists given Gerwig’s directing style. Her breakout movie “Ladybird,” which starred Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf, earned five Oscar nominations. Her latest movie, “Little Women,” which also starred Ronan, as well as Timothée Chalamet and Florence Pugh, received six Oscar nominations.

Ridley Scott to Receive Cartier Award at Venice Film Festival

Ridley Scott to Receive Cartier Award at Venice Film Festival

MILAN — British director and producer Ridley Scott will be the recipient of the inaugural Cartier Glory to the Filmmaker Award at the 78th Venice International Film Festival, running Sept. 1 to 11.
Dedicated to a personality who has made an original contribution to contemporary film, the award will be handed over at a ceremony on the evening of Sept. 10 at Palazzo del Cinema’s Sala Grande venue, before the screening of Scott’s new movie “The Last Duel.”
Premiering out of competition, the film stars Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer and Ben Affleck in a tale of betrayal and vengeance set in 14th-century France.
The recognition is part of Cartier’s sponsorship of the festival this year. As reported, the French jewelry house last month partnered with La Biennale di Venezia to become main sponsor of the event starting this year, jointly contributing to supporting contemporary film creation.

”For this first edition of the Cartier Glory to the Filmmaker Award, Cartier is proud to join the Venice Film Festival in paying tribute to Ridley Scott’s outstanding work, talent and particularly original contribution to the contemporary film industry,” Cartier’s chief marketing officer Arnaud Carrez said in a statement, adding that the director “has enriched the world of cinema with his productions since the ‘70s and has unequivocally become a mainstay in contemporary artistic creation.”

Scott’s expansive body of work encompasses movies such as “Alien,” “Blade Runner,” “Thelma & Louise” and “Gladiator,” which won the Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards for best picture, and conferred Russell Crowe the Academy Award for best actor in a leading role in 2001.
In addition to “The Last Duel,” Scott’s upcoming releases include the buzzy “House of Gucci,” centered on the murder of Maurizio Gucci orchestrated by Patrizia Reggiani, who will be portrayed by Adam Driver and Lady Gaga, respectively. The film is slated to hit theaters in November, but the trailer released last month has revved up the hype around the movie.
Scott’s future projects also include “Kit Bag,” in which Joaquin Phoenix is set to star as French military leader and emperor Napoleon.
In announcing Scott’s award, Alberto Barbera, director of the Venice Film Festival, underscored that “his personal approach to genre films, which successfully reconciles the requirements of entertainment, the expectations of the general public and the demands of critics, is the most distinctive element of Ridley Scott’s filmmaking.
“Had he directed one film only, the English director — who made his debut in film at the age of 40 with ‘The Duellists,’ before capturing the attention of the general public with the global box-office success ‘Alien’ — would still have earned his rightful place in the Olympus of the great filmmakers of contemporary cinema thanks to ‘Blade Runner,’ the most influential film in modern science fiction, which became a benchmark for decades to come,” said Barbera, adding that the director “has demonstrated his ability to navigate the most disparate genres with ease, injecting new lifeblood into each one of them.”

“His indisputable merits include the extraordinary visual talent and painterly taste he has demonstrated in the creation of sumptuous Baroque and graphically majestic images, accompanied by a rare and priceless talent for directing actors,” concluded Barbera.
In addition to Cartier, this year Armani Beauty also renewed its role as official beauty sponsor of the film festival, introducing the new The Audience Award – Armani beauty, Orizzonti Extra.
In particular, Orizzonti Extra is an extension of the competitive section focusing on new trends in the cinema world, and the prize will celebrate the best picture of the new section, according to a jury of spectators.
This is the fourth year Armani Beauty will partner with the event as official make-up artist to the guests and celebrities due to attend. The partnership signals Giorgio Armani’s longstanding relationship with the world of cinema, providing costumes for movies ranging from “American Gigolo” to “The Wolf of Wall Street” and dressing the likes of Cate Blanchett and Tom Cruise, to name a few.
