At times it’s also free-spirited and dark, offering a glimpse at the fashion icon’s highs and lows. Directed by Jalil Lespert, Yves Saint Laurent stars Pierre Niney as the revolutionary designer whose fabulous, jet-set life is marred by nervous breakdowns and drug use. “Genius comes at a price,” the trailer tells us: READ FULL STORY

'Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's': Meet the man behind fashion's most famous window displays -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

SCATTER-MY-ASHES-AT-BERGDORFS.jpg

“Being able to shop at Bergdorf-Goodman is an aphrodisiac.” — celebrity stylist Robert Verdi

The one-of-a-kind mecca of materialism at the corner of Manhattan’s 5th Avenue and 58th Street is practically an erotic destination for society’s wealthiest and most stylish personalities. But for other mere mortals, the store’s magnificent window displays are the closest they’ll get to the fabulous designs inside — 1.5 million walk by and gawk each week.

Director Matthew Miele followed David Hoey, Bergdorf-Goodman’s senior director of visual presentation, and his team during their holiday window preparations in 2011 as part of his documentary about the store’s legendary mystique, Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s. “The windows are sort of an embodiment of the personality of the store, the fashion Id of the store, in a way,” says Hoey, who’s been conceiving and creating Bergdorf’s windows for nearly 17 years. “You have to think of three levels of scale. Windows have to look interesting from across the street. Then they have to look good from the sidewalk. But then there’s a whole other layer of interest, which is up close.”

Thanks to his elaborate and artistically thoughtful displays, Hoey is a revered pillar of the New York fashion scene. (Yes, that’s his name on the doc’s poster, above Marc Jacobs and even with Giorgio Armani.) “A good window dresser is really pretending that he’s doing many other professions: You’re doing fashion, you’re doing theater, advertising, and you’re a story-teller,” says Hoey. “On the professional spectrum, window dresser is somewhere between industrial engineer and cake decorator.”

During the course of the year, Hoey supervises the decoration of hundreds of store windows, with the famous holiday displays taking months to prepare. Crowds flock to 5th and 58th the day they’re unveiled, but Hoey isn’t able to bask in the success. “Believe it or not, in my case, I’m thinking about the next year immediately,” he says. “Once they’re revealed, we almost immediately begin the next set. We’re our own harshest critics.”

Oscars 2013: The few, the proud, the redheaded

prize_fighter2_banner

If you want to stand out on the red carpet, red hair isn’t always the easiest accessory.

However misguided it may be, ginger locks are frequently regarded as somewhat of a hinderance. Terms like clashing and matching suddenly start getting thrown around — a sartorial burden that doesn’t regularly afflict ravens, brunettes, blondes, whites, or grays.

But this awards season proves that any “restrictions” on options for the scarlet-haired can be broken, with three striking redheads making their fashion presence felt.

And the most striking of all isn’t even a real person.

Judy Garland's 'Oz' dress expected to sell for half a million

The Dorothy dress is going up for auction.

Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien says Judy Garland’s original costume from The Wizard of Oz could sell for half a million dollars when it hits the auction block next month.

The white puff-sleeve blouse and blue gingham pinafore has inspired countless Halloween costumes since the film was released in 1939. Although several identical dresses were made for the production, the dress to be sold is the only version seen in the film and the only complete original dress to survive.

The outfit will be on view at London’s Stafford Hotel beginning Tuesday, before being exhibited at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, Calif., Nov. 5-9, prior to the auction Nov. 9-10.

'Magic Mike' costume designer on the trouble with tearaway pants -- and why it's worth it

“Someone asked me recently, ‘How important are clothes to a movie about stripping?’ And all I could say was, ‘Without the clothes, you really don’t have an act as a stripper. You’ve got to have something to take off,'” says Magic Mike costume designer Christopher Peterson. Fair enough. An Emmy nominee last year for his work on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Peterson did some quick research for the film by visiting several male revues on both coasts. What he learned immediately: “A guy walks out onstage, tears his pants off, it’s guaranteed to get a reaction every single time. It’s pretty much full-proof if you do it right,” he says. What took him awhile to figure out: How exactly to make that happen. “I thought, okay, so you attach a bit of velcro to some pants and yank ‘em and that’s it. It wasn’t working day after day. They weren’t tearing away,” says Peterson, who tested them on himself. “Finally, I figured out the right combination of velcro and snaps and how to grab them and got it. I tore away the final pair of trousers. Of course, that is the moment when the producer and the director walk into the fitting room for a quick check in, like, ‘Hey, how’s it going?’ and I’m standing there in my underwear in front of my staff. It was a pretty steep learning curve, but we got it because like I said, there’s nothing that guarantees a squeal out of a crowd more than Channing Tatum tearing away his cop pants.”

'Hunger Games': Hair guru Linda Flowers talks styles and trends

The Hunger Games hair department head Linda Flowers knows a thing or two about working with young people, creating a look, and putting it all together for films on a massive scale. Flowers ran hair for Captain America, The Social Network, and Iron Man 2, among others, so she is no stranger to big sets and big stars. While she was familiar with the Suzanne Collins novels, she hadn’t read the series and says she started reading them “the minute” she got the call to interview for the gig on the soon-to-be-blockbuster. So will blue hair become a trend? Will all the little girls have single braids come spring? We got the low down from the big-time stylist.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How did The Hunger Games set compare to other films you’ve worked on? What were the challenges in creating the initial concept?
LINDA FLOWERS:
It was definitely on the biggest scale for hair I’ve ever done. I’ve done big wig movies, I’ve done period movies, but never were the characters like [those in] the Capitol. Usually the shape of the hair is already dictated by the period, whereas this was in the future so we got to create this society. The challenge was to make it look couture and to make people take the Capitol seriously, even though they have pink hair and aqua hair and orange hair, so that was a real challenge. You have to create these styles for each individual character all the way down to the number 510 extra person that comes into the room.

Gotham Awards: The stars come out for independent film

Appropriately, Commissioner Gordon was at last night’s Gotham Independent Film Awards, and for a change, he was the center of attention. At least one of them, anyway. Gary Oldman, who in addition to his supporting role in the Batman franchise, is the star of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, was honored with a special Tribute Award. Three others were also honored for their career contributions, including Charlize Theron, the star of Jason Reitman’s upcoming Young Adult. She alone brought plenty of glamour to the event’s red carpet, as did Marcy Martha May Marlene‘s Elizabeth Olsen and We Need to Talk About Kevin‘s Tilda Swinton. Take a look at the evening’s pretty people. READ FULL STORY

Rachel Bilson talks about her Tribeca premiere -- and it involves ice cream

Bilson

She may be most fondly remembered as Summer Roberts from Fox’s The O.C. (or as Ted’s crush, Cindy for you How I Met Your Mother fans), but tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival, the starlet will be debuting her latest project: a three-part short film series to tout the U.S. launch of ice cream brand Magnum. Other big names like Bryan Singer and Benicio del Toro have collaborated on previous shorts for the brand, and this year the company called on Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld to direct Bilson in three different roles — as a model, prima ballerina, and art student. (After tonight’s premiere, only the first film will be available for viewing on Magnum’s Facebook page, but check back in a couple of weeks for EW’s exclusive look at “Art Class,” the third short.)

We chatted with the 29-year-old actress, who also recently finished shooting the pilot for The CW’s Hart of Dixie, about the shorts, working with the king of fashion, and just how much ice cream she ate during the shoot. 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This is a pretty plum gig. Paris. Karl Lagerfeld. Ice cream. How did you snag the role? READ FULL STORY
