Fan Art Fridays: Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep won the DeMille Award at the Golden Globes this year, and boy, was that one hell of an acceptance speech or what?!

I’ve loved Meryl in basically every movie I’ve seen her in, from Doubt to It’s Complicated. She’s timeless, and gives life to every character she plays.

In honor of her achievement, I’ve decided to feature this fan art of her from DeviantArt by Miko2660. She looks quite young in this piece of fan art, perhaps from the late ’70s. It was created using ArtStuido.

I love how she’s looking up in the piece, as if she’s in a state of utter bliss. Her hair also looks so wispy!

Fan Art Fridays: RIP Debbie Reynolds & Carrie Fisher

Boy, the award shows in 2017 going to have very long and incredibly sad “in memoriam” segments.

This week, we lost two amazing Hollywood actresses—Carrie Fisher (December 27) and her mother Debbie Reynolds (December 28).

This mother-daughter duo is definitely one to be remembered. I mean, how crazy is it that Reynolds’ last words were “I want to be with Carrie”?

The fan art tributes for both actresses so far have been really amazing. This one I found on Instagram by mllearole does a great job of capturing Fisher and Reynolds’ mother-daughter relationship. In it, the two stand together, hand in hand, head to head, Fisher dressed as Star Wars character Princess Leia and Reynolds dressed as Kathy from Singin’ in the Rain.

There’s so much softness and affection oozing from this fan art. I hope they both rest in peace, hopefully side by side, eyes closed just as they appear in this work of art.

Go show mllearole’s piece some love over on Instagram.

Fan Art Fridays: Elsa, Olaf & Anna

Thursday was the first day of winter, so it’s only fitting that I feature every kid’s favorite winter-themed animated film, Frozen on this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

I found this piece of fan art by A-KA over on Tumblr. Elsa, Olaf and Anna are in complete selfie mode in this colored pencil work of art, wide eyed and smiling as if they were posing for a selfie.

See the original fan art on Tumblr.

P.S. Did you really think I was going to end this without asking the most important question of the season?

Fan Art Fridays: Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has another movie coming out, and I’m super excited.

How am I supposed to wait until May for Snatched?! It seems so far away!

Anyway, I thought I’d share this sketch of Amy Schumer I found on Deviant Art by seanjo. She looks all perky and put together as opposed to the mess that goes down in the trailer for Snatched.

Fan Art Fridays: Spider-Man

The first official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming is out, and of course, everyone is losing their cool.

I’m really excited that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is in it (and Zendaya too!) , but I’m really missing Andrew Garfield 😥

Anyway, in celebration of the trailer, here’s some fan art I found of Spider-Man looking totes casual. He’s all, “nothing to see here, just a teenager in a hoodie.”

I can’t decipher the signature on the fan art, which is sad, because I’d love to give them a mention for credits!

See the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming below!

Fan Art Fridays: Lola Bunny

As if I needed another reminder as to how old I’m getting, Space Jam turned 20 this week.

How has it been 20 years already?!

In celebration, I’ve selected a piece of fan art I found on DeviantArt of Lola Bunny, the film’s sassiest character (in my opinion).

Called “Take It To the Hole,” Jessie J. Barboza (jbwarner) puts Lola Bunny in an underwater scene for his Underwater Babes of Toontown series. The expression on Lola Bunny’s face in the cartoon definitely makes this an intriguing piece of fan art. Why does she look so unimpressed while making this shot?

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Nina Dobrev @ ‘XXX: Return of Xander Cage’ LA Screening

Nina Dobrev made an appearance at the Los Angeles screening of XXX: Return of Xander Cage on Saturday wearing the most eye-catching Versace sweater I’ve seen this fall.

The middle and arms of the sweater have light pink and blue knitted patterns, the latter of which is brought out by the blue suede clutch bag that the Bulgarian-Canadian actress carried.

She took the opportunity to show off some leg with a faux leather mini skirt. If this doesn’t prove that pleather is the way to go then I don’t know what will.
