T LOunge for May 10th, 2022

Posted on May 10, 2022

Bouillon Chartier Montparnasse Brasserie – Paris, France


Because it’s TUESDAY, we’re feeling the need for a LOunge with CLATTER. No soft carpeting and moody lighting for us today. Let’s get loud! Let’s gossip and bicker and kvetch to our heart’s content, yes? Also, let’s eat a lot of imaginary French food and the best wine in Paris, yes! It’s on us.


Parker Posey Is Dead Serious
The actress discusses “The Staircase,” ceramics, and her idea for a show about dogs playing poker.

In the nearly three decades since her first starring role, in the 1995 indie comedy “Party Girl,” a “Parker Posey” character has become almost its own acting genre. Her quirky performances—spiky, daffy, ruthless, silly to the extreme—make even her tiny parts marvellously memorable: the queen bee-bitch yelling “Air raid!” in “Dazed and Confused,” the chain-smoking purveyor of the “Ding that, Skippy!” monologue in “Kicking and Screaming,” the entitled, over-caffeinated book editor in “You’ve Got Mail.” And of course, her many roles in Christopher Guest’s œuvre, where she stands out even amid a murderers’ row of comedic talent.


Why Red Hair Is the Next Big Permanent Color Trend
Considering changing up your hair color? Here’s why going red may be the way to go.

For years now, whenever a celebrity has undergone a drastic hair change, it has generally meant two things: they’ve either gotten a bob or they’ve gone blonde. But this year, we’ve seen a subtle move away from that. Not only are certain members of the fashion set ditching their highlights in favor of their natural tones, but there’s also been a simmering trend of going red. Kendall Jenner did it, and then perhaps less drastically, Sydney Sweeney went strawberry blonde.


Blake Lively Dives into Her Life in Looks—From Gossip Girl to the Met Gala
“I don’t work with a stylist, I never have,” Blake Lively says in her new Life in Looks video. Dressing herself amid a chaotic schedule is a feat, especially considering the star has dominated the red carpet at countless movie premieres, galas, and awards shows. Proving she has a distinctive personal style that’s all her own, the actor sat down with Vogue to revisit some of her best looks over the years, as well as her favorite fashion moments on-screen.


How The First Lady Star Jayme Lawson Figured Out Michelle Obama
It’s a journey that took the actress from Gotham City to the White House.

What do the highest office in Gotham City and the White House have in common? Jayme Lawson, the actress whose Bella Reál runs the fictional city in this year’s The Batman and who plays a young Michelle Obama in Showtime’s new series The First Lady.
For the Juilliard graduate, the link between the characters she portrays—which will soon include Myrlie Evers in the upcoming film Till and a role in director Gina Prince-Blythewood’s historical epic The Woman King—is that they’re people whose voices she hopes to help amplify.


Jeremy Scott Takes Us Inside His Avant Garde, Glamorous, and Fun New Book for Moschino
A photography book from a master of the Instagram moment. That’s one way to look at the new Moschino tome from Assouline—Moschino’s Jeremy Scott is the guy who painted Kaia Gerber orange to look like an alien Jackie O, after all, as he likes to remind you. Scott may have a special knack for social media—see last week’s Met Gala, for starters, where he dressed Megan Thee Stallion, Khloe Kardashian, Ariana De Bose, and and Vanessa Hudgens, among other bold-facers—but he has a thing for physical paper, too.
“I love books, I love things that can last forever,” he said on a phone call, explaining that he art-directed the book, choosing all the pictures himself. On that phone call, Scott was fresh from Moschino’s fall 2022 campaign shoot with Steven Meisel, and he reported that the famed cameraman approved of the volume—not just the images he loaned for the inside and for the cover, but also the print quality.


Excuse Me, But Camo Nails Are So Hot Right Now
Calling Cadet Kelly!

We love a good throwback Y2K beauty look, whether it’s a hair stamp or bedazzled makeup. The early aughts are the inspiration for most of the current big beauty trends, and good reason. (Just ask Julia Fox about the resurgence of grunge makeup this spring.
Hair and makeup typically get the spotlight when it comes to trends, but even though nails are comparatively tiny, the right manicure can really complete a look. Hey, it’s why so many of us go crazy for nail art trends.
The newest trend to take over our tips is Y2K-inspired camouflage print. The now-you-see-me-now-you-don’t trend instantly takes us back to Cadet Kelly and Destiny Child’s “I’m a Survivor” music video — and we’re here for it.


Ginsburg’s tea set, coat, other items raise $800K for opera
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s silver tea set is going to a family with a 5-year-old daughter who once was Ginsburg for Halloween. A medal Ginsburg was awarded when inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame is going to a family that demonstrated recently for reproductive rights. And a drawing of her that hung in her office was a Utah-based scientist’s Mother’s Day gift to his wife.
All told, an online auction of 150 of items owned by the late justice raised $803,650 for Washington National Opera, one of the late justice’s passions. The auction ended in late April, and buyers are now picking up items or arranging to have them shipped to their homes in 38 states, the District of Columbia, Canada and Germany. Winning bids ranged from $850 to $55,000.


There’s a New Wordle-Style Game Just for Food Words
Your daily “Phoodle” come with fun food facts and weekly recipes.

In January 2022, Wordle took the internet by storm. The single-word guessing game racked up quite the fanbase, eventually leading to its purchase by The New York Times for an undisclosed amount. But, it left many people hungry for more, leading to an onslaught of copycats like Quordle, which allows users to guess four words at once, BRDL, which requires players to guess the name of a different bird, and Worldle, a geography-based game that allows players to guess a single country based on its map outline each day. And finally, after what seems like a million internet years, food fans have their own. It’s called Phoodle, and it too will have you hooked right from the start.


From David Bowie to Bad Bunny, the Famous Men Who Have Made Nail Art Their Beauty Signature
In the golden days of rock and roll, “man-icures” were everywhere. During his Ziggy Stardust era of the early ’70s, David Bowie’s teal nails were a cool contrast to his flamed-hair mullet, while Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler began sporting his now-signature nail art, accented by graphic black stripes. Setting the stage for style rebels of the decades that followed, chipped nail polish was a grunge mainstay for Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain in the ’90s. In the aughts, Johnny Depp began to take a page out of his idol Keith Richard’s book with haphazardly applied cobalt digits; “Kissed by a Rose” singer Seal offered up a pristine alternative with a glossy slime green manicure.


How TikTok’s Irreverent Humor Became Hollywood’s Indispensable Tool for Reaching Gen Z
There are countless accounts on TikTok dedicated to “The Mandalorian” star Pedro Pascal, where fans gather to ruminate on his acting skills and, of course, dashing good looks. But who would expect that the account calling him the “daddiest daddy” would be Lionsgate, the distributor behind Pascal’s latest film, “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent?”
The video’s comments section is full of viewers marveling at Pascal’s “daddiness,” and also expressing their shock that this clip was posted to Lionsgate’s official account. But this social media strategy is nothing new for the studio — in fact, tapping into TikTok’s comedic voice and ever-changing trends is a staple of Lionsgate’s account, which boasts 4 million followers and 90 million likes. As TikTok has become more integral to today’s social media landscape — particularly to users born between 1997 and 2012, otherwise known as Gen Z — more major movie studios are adopting the platform’s unique voice in order to harness its undeniable power.

50 Best Horror Movies To Watch Now If You Actually Like Getting The Heebie-Jeebies
From Us to Midsommar, here are the scariest films to hide behind a pillow to.

Horror movies are up there with holding spiders, riding Nemesis at Alton Towers and camping alone in the woods for some people.
Unlike thrillers, which more often than not involve twisted psychologically-testing plots and suspense, horrors set out to terrify viewers with gore, unpredictable narratives and instil a sense of doom from start to finish. Some of our worst nightmares derive from a night watching that film we knew we should’ve hit pause on but were too enticed to see through until the end (ahem, The Orphanage, we’re looking at you).
Whether you’re in need of a fright night come Halloween later this year or, simply your ideal night in involves sitting with a giant tub of popcorn and arming yourself with a pillow for the gory scenes, there are thousands of horror films awaiting your screams. However, sifting through the never-ending list of films to find the right horror that is as much terrifying as it is thrilling isn’t always easy.


Andy Warhol’s Blue Marilyn becomes the most expensive 20th century artwork ever sold at auction
The painting is known as the Shot Sage Blue Marilyn after it was damaged by a woman who infiltrated the artist’s Factory studio and shot a hole through it, which was later patched u

Andy Warhol’s famous 1964 portrait of model and actress Marylin Monroe, titled Shot Sage Blue Marilyn, has become the most expensive 20th-century piece of art ever, after selling at a Christie’s New York auction for an estimated £158 million. The buyer is reported to be Larry Gagosian, an American art ‘mega-dealer’ who owns the chain of Gagosian galleries and was once described as ‘the closest thing the art world has to a Caesar’.


How Elizabeth Olsen Came Into Her Powers
The actress started as an indie darling and never expected to become a Marvel linchpin as Wanda Maximoff. But she’s now so invested in the role, she’s open to a solo film.

Olsen had known she wanted to act since she was a child, but she also knew she didn’t want to act as a child. Any curiosity she might have had about fame was quieted by growing up alongside her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley, who were cast in “Full House” before they were even a year old. The life-warping scrutiny of stardom could wait.
Anyway, she felt far more comfortable in a group. Olsen played high school volleyball and sparked to the team’s camaraderie: Everyone could have their solo moment, but they had to work together to succeed. Even in college, when she started to audition for movies, she was in no rush to leave the theatrical ensemble she had come through school with.


Before the War
The Japanese Camera Pictorialists of California
The J. Paul Getty Museum recently acquired a collection of nearly lost photographs

An artwork can have many lives. It might be publicly admired for centuries, or cloistered in a private room, or just stranded in a dusty closet.
Or, as is the case with the Getty Museum’s recent acquisition of 79 Japanese American photographs, it could be stored for years in a black plastic trash bag in the garage of a plant nursery in Culver City, until the right person comes along to find it.
