Wardrobe Wednesdays: Anaïs Gallagher @ the BRIT Awards 2016

Anaïs Gallagher, Brit Awards 2016

At this point y’all probably think I’m obsessed with Pantone 2016’s Serenity.

Well I kind of am. And Anaïs Gallagher’s ensemble at the BRIT Awards 2016 just fueled the obsession even more!

Daughter of Noel Gallagher and Meg Matthews, the UK fashionista rocked a ’70s look at the award show in a pale blue pant suit, black and white printed blouse and a pair of chunky, studded clog heels.

Can I get a hippie?!

This 16-year-old girl is definitely onto something.

My favorite part of the this outfit is the animalia printed blouse she chose to wear beneath the pale blue blazer, adding a bit of character to the outfit.

I’ve found a few similar pieces below, including a black and white cat printed blouse and an alternative in bird print for those of us with different animal tastes.

Blazer:

1. Matches Fashion, $850.00

Bradley Cooper Works at Burger King for a Weekend

Turns out the hottie can flip it!

On Sunday, Bradley Cooper was spotted working a shift at Burger  King in Leicester Square, London. Why, you ask? To train for his upcoming role as a chef in the film, Adam Jones.

“Bradley was training alongside genuine Burger King staff,” a source told The Sun. “The aim was to learn the art of the flip, which he nailed fairly quickly. There was no real fanfare from him. You’d never know he was a big star by the way he spoke to people. He spent Sunday night learning the skills while the restaurant was open to the public and then filmed for most of the day on Monday.”

Those were some lucky little British Burger King customers!

Adam Jones, directed by John Wells, will also star 50 Shades of Grey male lead Jamie Dornan, Uma Thurman, Sienna Miller and Emma Thompson.

According to The Wrap, the film is about a big shot chef who returns to London in search of a third Michelin star after giving up his career for a few years.

Filming is set to be completed by the end of September.

I’m just mad that he wasn’t training for this role in NYC. Hmph.

 

Jennifer Lawrence Comforts Crying Fan at ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Premiere

jlaw

As if we didn’t already love Jennifer Lawrence to pieces, the Hunger Games actress stepped off the red carpet in London last night to comfort a crying fan.

Lawrence was in the middle of an interview outside the Odeon Leicester Square in London when she saw the young girl nearly bawling her eyes out in awe of her presence. She was dying to meet her Hunger Games heroine, and luckily, her dream came true.

In the video, JLaw is seen taking pictures with the little girl and signing autographs for her.

She went right back to the interview once the little girl was satisfied with her fifteen seconds of JLaw.

For those of you who didn’t notice, Jennifer Lawrence is sporting a new pixie cut hairdo.

Too many people are commenting on the similarities to Miley Cyrus’ hairstyle.

Pixie cut or long haired, Jennifer Lawrence is still the same sweet, kind hearted person we all know and love.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens on November 22nd in the United States.

This Week in Music: Taylor Swift’s “Sweeter Than Fiction”

sweeter than fiction

Taylor Swift has a new song featured on the One Chance soundtrack called “Sweeter Than Fiction”!

If anyone is going to write a sweet little song about life, Taylor Swift is your girl for the job.

The film about Britain’s Got Talent winner Paul Potts, directed by Simon Cowell, comes out in the UK on October 25th, 2013.

Luckily, the song “Sweeter Than Fiction” is already out for your listening pleasure.

“Sweeter Than Fiction” is a medium tempo tune with lots of guitar and drum beats.

The intro is a lovely melody of major chords that sound full of triumph and hope.

The instrumentation of the rest of the song is nothing out of the ordinary, but the lyrics are heartwarming.

The lyrics of “Sweeter Than Fiction” take listeners through the doubts and triumphs of success. The second part of the first verse is beautifully written, as she sings,

Seen you fall, seen you crawl on you knees (eh, eh)
Seen you lost in a crowd, seen you colors fade
Wish I could make it better
Someday you won’t remember,
This pain you thought would last forever and ever (Verse 1, Part 2)

The bridge of the song reminds us all why we love Taylor’s voice so much, as the beat slows down a bit and she drags some of the words out legato:

I’ll be one of the many saying
Look at you now, look at you now, now
I’ll be one of the many saying
You’ve made us proud, you’ve made us proud, proud

And when they call your name
And they put your picture in a frame
You know that I’ll be there time and again
‘Cause I you loved when… (Bridge)

The way the drum takes over in the instrumentation of the last few lines of the bridge brings a nice touch of sentiment to finale of the song, in which Taylor sings the first part of the first verse again.

I hope this song actually plays during the film and not just the end credits.

Or worse: I hope its not just for the soundtrack. That would be a shame to waste such a beautifully written song when it could well be played in the film itself.

Enjoy the track!

Snooki Calls Kate Middleton A MILF

snooki and kate

Oh, Snooki.

As many of you know, the royal baby’s family portraits leaked three hours early via Twitter. Apparently not even the royals can control the internet.

Or Snooki’s mouth for that matter.

After seeing the beautiful family portraits, one with just Kate, William, and George, and another with the family plus dogs Tilly and Lupo, Snooki decided to gush over them on her Celebuzz blog:

“Congrats to Will and Kate on their beautiful baby boy George! He totally looks like his daddy here, and I can already tell he’s going to be the cutest royal baby ever!!! And can I just say how fricken AMAZING Kate looks?! Like why is she perfect?! She just gave birth and she looks like she’s ready to walk the runway.

“She is my inspiration for my next pregnancy! So obsessed with this family and cannot wait to hear more about them! We all know they will be amazing parents to their precious nugget! I’m just waiting to hear the dirty poop and pee stories!!! Kisses to you guys, and Kate….you’re a MILF.”

Umm, what?!

Leave it to Snooki to go over the top with her compliments.

A simple, “and Kate…you look gorgeous” or “…stunning”, or “…SEXY” even would have done.

But no. MILF just had to be her word of choice.

Gotta give the girl some props for managing to be relevant in the revealing of these portraits, though.

 

The Royal Baby Might Become a TV Star

Prince George Alexander Louis was born a mere 18 days ago, and he has already been offered a role in a British soap opera.

What a lucky baby boy.

Coronation_Street_Titles

John Whiston, the creative director of the show Coronation Street, told The Daily Star that he wanted the royal baby to join the cast, Prince William and Kate included.

“It would be fantastic to get Kate [Middleton], [Prince] William and George there with a pair of tiny baby scissors,” he said.

Georgie just recently got his birth certificate for crying out loud! He hasn’t even been christened yet and they’re already trying to cast him in a television show?

Madness!

Coronation Street is the longest running British soap opera, so I can see how it would be an honor for the cast to work alongside the royal family.

If the family decides to take the role, they will not be the first Duke and Dutchess to appear on the show. The Duke of Bedford, John Ian Robert Russell appeared in Episode 1288 (21st May 1973) and Episode 1289 (23rd May 1973).

So is a television role in the cards for little Prince George?

North West, be jealous.
