Who Run the World? GIRLS!

Published June 5, 2014 by The Feminist

This week is one full of girl power events. Yesterday there was the Chime For Change party, to celebrate last year’s charity gig that was set up to help empower women all over the world. At the same time as Beyoncé was playing hostess, across the Atlantic they were honoring the most glamourous women at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

In short, two events that proved that women are awesome! Let’s own it, ladies!

The Chime For Change party was hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, in order to reel in more money to promote education, justice and health for women (hell yeah!). Queen Bey, as a fashionable philanthropist, donated 500,000 dollars (blimey!) and her lil’ sis’ Solange did her thing on the turntables.

Unfortunately though, the entire purpose of the event got completely overshadowed by our desire to gossip, because it was Beyoncé and Solange’s first public appearance since  the infamous elevator incident at the Met Gala. Yessss, that incident.

Both fabulous ladies had plastered a flawless smile on their faces. Literally everyone was dying to know whether those smiles were genuine or fake. Why wasn’t Jay-Z there? Is she breaking up with Jay-Z? Is she temporarily moving in with Solange? Was the elevator incident just a publicity stunt in order to boost Solange’s popularity? So many questions, so few answers!

Gossip aside for a moment, Beyoncé looked stunning in that white jumpsuit.

Apparently both sisters thought it might put rumours to rest to opt for similar outfits, because both Beyoncé and Solange went for plunging cleavages.

Another attendee at the party was Black Lively. Just like Queen Bey and Solange, Blake opted for a daring cleavage but that sexy edge unfortunately isn’t enough to make us forget the downright ugly colour of the dress. I think it is supposed to be mustard yellow… or maybe mustard green?? Anyway,  after seeing that dress, there is only one place where I want to see that colour … on my plate, not on my clothes.

Meanwhile on the other side of the globe, her hubby Ryan Reynolds was present at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, where he honored Dame Helen Mirren with the prestigious “Icon” award. His introduction was surprisingly good, in contrast to his actual acting (no offence, Ryan). Ryan wittily called her the Dame of Thrones ( thumbs up for the original word play!) and later added “someone we’re absolutely desperate to get drunk with at a party”. (I’ll raise a glass to that!)

However, even though these awards were all supposed to be about Glamour, there was hardly a frock in sight that I actually thought was beautiful. They were all ranging between “meh” and “get that ugly thing out of my sight”, so unfortunately my best dressed list is rather small.

No scratch that.

It is practically non-existent.

From all the women present at the event, there were only two (two!!!!) dresses I actually genuinely liked.

Let’s start with a bang: here is Paloma Faith in a stunning, dramatic see-through gown.

And then there was Alexa Chung, looking elegant in a simple Dior Couture dress.

That’s it.

All the other dresses/sacks/giant diapers are not worth mentioning.

Luckily for me, I could drown my fashion sorrow in handsome men, because the dresses may not have been memorable, the hot dudes attending the award show were. Phew!

David Gandy, as always, looks like a Greek God in a fabulous, expensive-looking suit. Seriously, do you know that brain freeze you get from eating ice-cream? Well, I get that every time I see our dearest David. He is simply too much deliciousness at once to digest.

Let’s not forget Mr. Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds: dashing as always.

So I guess you could say that the most memorable thing about this women empowerment week were the handsome men.

 Oh, the irony.

Blake Lively, Queen of Cannes: But Why Was She Even There?

In exactly four more days, the greatest film fest of France will be over. Looking back on the past couple of days, Cannes truly has embraced its French Riviera finesse and extravagance with movie stars from all over the world graciously strolling across the red carpet.

As always, there was one star who was able to shine a little bit brighter than all the rest, and that star was Blake Lively. Not only did she show up to more than just one event and wore more than just one fabulous gown, she simply blew away the competition with her ever-present grace, charm and overwhelming beauty.

blake-lively

But… what was she actually doing there? The last time she appeared on TV or in cinema was in 2012 with Gossip Girl and the Savages. Sure, Gossip Girl was a tremendously popular show, but even the best shows have an expiration date. Moreover, her next film will be released in 2015, which isn’t exactly just around the corner.

So the question remains: what the hell was she doing there in the first place?

Time for some gossip!

Possibility nr. 1: She may be working on a very secretive project.

We all know that one year of absence on screen is like a lifetime of absence in Hollywood. So who knows, Blake might be releasing some brand new project in the very near future and is strategically trying to create some momentum around her personality. In that case, looking stunning on a red carpet is definitely the way to go.

Possibility nr. 2: She is there as L’Oreal Paris ambassador.

L’Oreal is big in Cannes, so obviously the brand needed to get some famous divas on the attendee list in order to promote their products.

Although a very good marketing trick, I do not think any woman will fall for that. Unfortunately, no matter how much L’Oreal make up we would put on our faces, we will never ever ever look like Blake. *letting out a soft sob*

Possibility nr. 3: Ryan Reynolds needs a distraction

One of the most plausible explanations for Blake’s presence could be because her hubby Ryan Reynolds is there to promote his film the Captive. Now, as a devoted wife and fashion-diva you simply cannot pass on a trip to Cannes. Flaunting beautiful designer dresses and that great body on La Croisette is something we all want to do, right?

However, Blake Lively’s presence might also be to his advantage, because his film got completely bashed in the press. So in order to shift the attention away from the bad reviews (in this case, “bad” is a euphemism for “I would rather be disemboweled with a clothes hanger than watch that movie again”) he simply had to have Blake by his side to overwhelm the press with her fabulous femme fatale-ness.

Here is what they might have been saying:

"The Captive" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Ryan: “Oh God, this is so embarrassing.  I wanna go home and order pizza.”

Blake: “Just keep smiling, dear. The press loves us. We’re wearing matching outfits!”

FRANCE-ENTERTAINMENT-CANNES-FILM-FESTIVAL

Ryan: “ I think that photographer just winked at you.”

Blake: “Why, at me? How charming! Shall I strike a pose. Blow him a kiss, maybe?”

Possibility nr. 4: It’s not Blake, it’s her clone.

Okay, so maybe I have been watching to many episodes of Orphan Black, but just think about it! What if the real Blake is locked up in a room in LA somewhere, while her evil clone is pretending to be her, just so she can wear all the fabulous clothes and sleep with Ryan Reynolds. (Don’t frown, ladies. We would all do the same if we had the chance. 😉 )

So yes, Black Lively was indeed the Queen of Cannes, but why she was actually there, no one really knows.

Obviously, I’m leaning towards option four.

Let’s celebrate! I’ve just turned 22!

Today I’m officially 22 years old!! Needless to say that I have better things to do on my birthday than writing blog posts, i.e. eating loads of chocolate and drinking lots of martini. 😉
I hope you don’t mind?

By the way, I’ve received some pretty cute birthday wishes from some pretty sexy and famous dudes:

I had a feeling my birthday would be spectacular! 😉

All I want for Christmas is…Ryan Reynolds

But since that won’t be possible (unless he decides to dump Blake Lively and turn up on my doorstep) , I advice every single man on this planet to BUY the fragrance Boss Bottled Night. That way, you may not look like Ryan Reynolds, but you will definitely smell like him.

PS:
Dear Ladies,
If you want to turn your husband or boyfriend into the sexiest gentleman to whom the art of seduction comes second nature: buy Boss Bottled Night as a Christmas present. Your Christmas will be magical, I promise! 😉

Oh Boy! : A very very very subjective movie hunk top 5

Published September 20, 2012 by The Feminist

1)Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal:

Smart, funny and incredibly sexy without his shirt on: I would propose to him in a nanosecond if I had the chance. (Unfortunately Gossip Girl-star Blake Lively beat me to it.)

Image

2)Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love:

Gosling’s  swoon-factor went through the roof in this flick, or to quote Emma Stone: “Seriously, it’s like your photoshopped!”

Image

3) Zac Efron in The Lucky One:

Bye Bye “High School Musical” baby face, hello Mister Good Looking!Image

4)Channing Tatum in … well… every movie he has ever played in:

Seriously, what’s up with that? He takes his shirt off in every single one of them- from ‘Dear John’ to ‘Step Up’-  and in ‘The Vow’ and ‘Magic Mike’ he doesn’t even bother to put clothes on at all! I’m definitely not complaining…

Image

5)The whole cast in Magic Mike:

Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and last but not least Channing Tatum (yes, again!), they are all sexy actors with gorgeous bodies and they are all STRIPING! And girls, get ready to hiss the word yesssssss, because Tatum himself announced a couple of weeks ago that part TWO is in the making! Sometimes, life can be so good….

Everyone loves to make lists, and damn, I sure had a lot of fun making this one! But as I said,  this is a very subjective selection of movie hunks so feel free to comment or suggest a “better” top 5.
