Still Showing Her Sexy Sadie Side, Dana Fuchs Sets the Stage to Rise and Shine
Huffington Post - 21 days
Whatever happened to Sexy Sadie? Embodied by Dana Fuchs, she's alive and well and ready to knock your socks off -- if you let her. "I would love people to know that I'm first and foremost a songwriter, a singer, and it's very much like that Sadie character," Fuchs said from her Harlem apartment near the end of an hourlong phone conversation in late January while expecting some terrible weather to hit New York City. "But of course, it's my own music," she added, a bad cold making her deep voice sound even lower and sexier. "It's that kind of raw, rocking, soulful music, and I would love people to know that Sadie is Dana Fuchs, who is living as a musician." It's been 10 years since Fuchs (pronounced Fyooks) made her motion picture mark as Sadie, a powerful blues singer, very hip chick and Earth Mother in Across the Universe. Julie Taymor's wonderfully innovative and inexcusably ignored movie set in the 1960s was filled with teen romance, wild imagery and incredibly inventi ...

Allies like Debra Messing, Macklemore and Drew Barrymore get in on the fun, too, tipping their hat to the outgoing president’s administration for repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” supporting marriage equality and other pro-LGBTQ efforts.  “You presided over a period of time that turned out to be, in many ways, one of the most positive periods of time ever in the lives of gay Americans,” Jim Parsons says in the clip, which can be viewed above. Wood, who is bisexual, echoed those sentiments, thanking Obama for “changing the way that people thought about us, and honestly, the way I ...

Huffington Post - about 1 month
At least one good thing came out of the disastrous 2015 reboot of “Fantastic Four.” Cast members Jamie Bell and Kata Mara met while on the film and are now engaged, a rep for the actress confirmed to E! on Friday.  Bell, 30, and Mara, 33, have been a thing since the fall of 2015, according to People.

Octavia Spencer Says 'Less Underwear' Is The Key To A Fun Red Carpet
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Octavia Spencer knows how to make the Golden Globes even more fun: a sharp tuxedo and not a whole lot of underwear.  The “Hidden Figures” actress appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday and spoke to the talk show host about her outfit ― and the lack of shape-wear beneath it.  “I don’t think I’ve ever been to an awards show and had as much fun as I did this past time. I chose to wear a tuxedo and in doing that, I was able to be freer,” Spencer said while making a funny face, drawing laughs from the audience. “Less underwear. A lot less underwear.” The actress said that everyone told her she looked “radiant,” which they assumed was because of her movie dominating the box office and overtaking “Rogue One” for the top spot. Not so, said Spencer, again crediting her lack of undergarments and the menswear-inspired outfit she wore.  “More women need to say, ‘You know what? We’re going to wear the pantsuit,” she said. Fellow Golden Globes attend ...

The Sky is the Limit for Holiday Hair
Huffington Post - 2 months
It's that time of year again. The holidays are here and many of us have calendars that are filled to the brim with everything from company parties to children's concerts. With all this activity, we want to feel that we look our best for all the seasonal events while avoiding wearing the same hairstyle that we wear during our everyday routines. For me, the go to for ideas is always the red carpets of Hollywood. Each year I look forward to watching the Critic's Choice awards because the show typically falls right in the middle of the holidays. It's great to watch my favorite Hollywood headliners dressed in the colors of the season which they pair with everything from casual to exquisite hairstyles. So many different starlets caught my eye this year. Let's start with Evan Rachel Wood and her asymmetrical look.
