Wardrobe Wednesdays: Elle Fanning @ Cannes Film Festival 2017

Elle Fanning, Cannes 2017 dior flowerbed gown

Is it just me, or did the Cannes Film Festival look like way too much fun this year?

The fashion at Cannes 2017 was absolutely killer! I really loved all the high slits and fun embellishments on the gown, but if anyone really stood out to me this year, it was Elle Fanning.

The actress wore a flowerbed embellished Dior gown on one of the festival days, looking like a delightful spring goddess. I love the primary color vibe I’m getting from the florals on the gown.

Side note: Are we sure Elle is only 19? She looks older than me?!

See below for three dresses inspired by Elle’s Cannes look.

Dress:

1. Net-A-Porter, $420.00

2. Harrods, $749.00

3. Neiman Marcus, $1,498.00

Gallery Mondays: Brigadier General William Mitchell & His Spad

Brigadier General William Mitchell Udvar Hazy Air Space Museum

Today we remember heroes like Brigadier General William “Billy” Mitchell.

I saw this sculpture of him at the Chantilly, VA Steven Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum in July last year. I think I was drawn to it because of the brigadier’s stance. He appears so poised and confident.

Born in France to a wealthy Wisconsin family, Billy Mitchell fought in World War I and was a huge advocate of military aviation. At the museum, he stands next to his Spad XVI.

It took me about two hours to figure out that this was a sculpture of Billy Mitchell because I took this photo at an angle that made the info display card wording blurry.

Bravo photography skills, Dana!

Anyway, I’m glad I took the time to investigate.

However, I’m still not entirely sure who created this sculpture, but it looks a lot like the Brigadier William Mitchell Memorial by Jerry McKenna in Colorado.

It seems I’ve got some more Google stalking to do.

Happy Memorial Day everyone, and if you’re near the Steven Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum in Virginia or DC you should totally check out the amazing aircraft on display!

Fan Art Fridays: RIP Sir Roger Moore

Even though Pierce Brosnan will always be my favorite James Bond, I am deeply saddened that we lost our 1973 Bond, Sir Roger Moore, this week.

Cancer SUCKS!

In remembrance, this week’s Fan Art Friday’s goes out to Sir Moore. Enjoy this sketch of the actor as James Bond by Patricio Carbajal, also known as Pat. I can’t get over how perfect the hair is in this rough sketch!

See more of Pat’s art at www.patart-pat.blogspot.com, and enjoy one of Sir Roger Moore’s James Bond scenes below.

Hailee Steinfeld gave us all metallic fever on Sunday when she showed up to the pink carpet at the Billboard Music Awards 2017 in Las Vegas wearing a sexy cut-out dress.

Designed by David Koma, the dress shows off some skin in all the right places without being overdone. I love how her metallic makeup look matches the dress!

Gallery Mondays: #25 by Wane Cod & Lucky Liz

I turned 23 this past weekend, and it truly occurred to me how old I am when I just looked up when the last Garfield movie was released.

More than 10 YEARS AGO.

What even?!

Anyway, I see this truck by Wane Cod and Lucky Liz every time I run an errand for my boss near 32nd Street and Broadway in Midtown, NYC. On it, Garfield the fat cat looks cool as ever in a pair of dark shades against Cod’s infamous “WANE” stamp.

If this is #25, then I better start hunting for the other 24 trucks!

Fan Art Fridays: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for President

Looks like this misery might actually end for sure in 2020.

This week, our favorite rock, Dwayne Johnson, gave us all some hope during a GQ interview and while on Jimmy Fallon’s show when he said he’d consider running for president in the upcoming election.

Hell, yes!

If anyone can save us from the disaster and woes that the Trump Administration has brought upon us, it’s Mr. Johnson. He’s a strong man with a kind heart.

In celebration of the possibility that The Rock might be our next president, let’s admire this cool fan art I found of the actor on Deviant Art by theSinchan. I’m really digging the patriotism on the t-shirt.

View the original fan art here, and watch Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson talk about running in 2020 on The Tonight Show!
