Sex And The City 2 Premiere Brings The Ladies (And Some Husbands)

Sarah Jessica Parker

Despite what you might think, there were actually men at the Sex And The City 2 premiere in NYC last night—and not just men from the cast or men married to castmembers (hello, Matthew Broderick). For instance, Valentino was there. He’s a dude! Also, Johnny Weir—yes, a male athlete who enjoys Sex And The City! A jock! Howard Stern went along with wife Beth Ostrosky and his daughter (bet he had a great time, totally wasn’t just there to get his ladies on the guest list or anything), and he may well have talked about the film later with other good husbands like Jerry Seinfeld, Donald Trump and George Stephanopoulos, who certainly weren’t gritting their teeth as Sarah Jessica Parker and her pals enjoyed the luxuries of Abu Dhabi.

Despite the obvious cross-gender appeal, women definitely dominated the event, with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Whitney Port, Gabourey Sidibe, Ashanti, Jessica Szohr and many more joining the cast on the red carpet. See what everyone wore in the gallery below.

Milla Jovovich Goes Big At Cannes

Milla Jovovich stepped out in a big way at the premiere of Exodus—Burnt By The Sun 2 at Cannes this weekend, hitting the red carpet in a voluminous gown that screamed “get out of my way!” even more than those massive guns she swings around in the Resident Evil movies. We love Milla—remember when she made that Bjorkish album in the nineties?—but this looks like an arty variation on something that would go with clogs. Do you like her front bustle? Check out the gallery and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Salma Hayek Heats Up Cannes’ Palme D’or Ceremony

Salma Hayek

Thailand took home its first Palme D’Or ever at Cannes this weekend for Apichatpong Weerasethakul‘s Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, which is sort of like Snakes On A Plane in that the title describes the story and it’s full of wild animals (that may be where the similarities end, though). The avant-garde film doesn’t have an American release date yet, but with Alice In Wonderland‘s Tim Burton leading this year’s Cannes jury, we’re sure it will find its way here eventually. Among the gorgeous celebs attending the ceremony were Salma Hayek, Kate Beckinsale, Kirsten Dunst, Penelope Cruz, and acting winners Javier Bardem and Juliette Binoche. See what they wore in the gallery below.

James Franco Set To Shoot Planet Of The Apes Prequel

James Franco

James Franco, what is your game? Between the General Hospital appearances and the master’s degrees and the small roles in chick flicks (Nights In Rodanthe? Why?), we can never figure out what the logic is behind this guy’s career choices. For instance, he’s finally decided to make the potential sci-fi blockbuster his agent has probably been praying for…only it’s apparently going to be a Planet Of The Apes prequel. What, they’re not going to let us know what happened after the 2001 Mark Wahlberg movie? We’ve been dying for closure!

Rise Of The Apes‘s producers hope to have Franco play a modern day genetic engineer in San Francisco who has something to do with the world’s first super-intelligent apes. According to Nikki Finke, Hollywood mighty impressed with Franco in the upcoming Danny Boyle drama 127 Hours, about a hiker who has to saw off his own limb and hope to take his badassery further into the limelight. With Franco soon to appear in theaters as Allen Ginsberg in Howl, a knight in the next Danny McBride comedy and a love interest for Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love, it looks like there isn’t any genre the guy can’t conquer. So expect James to retire to start his own fish cannery sometime next year.

Cannes Craziness: Is Elizabeth Banks Trying Too Hard?

If Elizabeth Banks has been trying to get our attention, she’s certainly succeeding. The star of comedies like Role Models, Zack & Miri Make A Porno and The 40 Year Old Virgin has consistently worn the most dramatic outfits at the Cannes Film Festival this week, ranging from a strawberry swirl of a gown at the Poetry premiere to a blue blast of sparkle-motion at Wednesday’s Armani party to the backless studded marvel above at yesterday’s Artists For Peace & Justice benefit. Should Elizabeth give it a rest or are you loving her flamboyance? Check out our gallery from last night’s charity bash and  let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Kate Beckinsale’s Cleavage Catches Her Earring At Cannes AmFar Benefit

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale‘s dress looked pretty tight at last night’s AmFar gala at the Cannes Festival, so it’s a good thing her cleavage successfully caught her falling earring on the red carpet, keeping her from having to try and pick the low-hanging bauble up from the floor (sadly, her decolletage has been unable to keep her recent films from slipping right down the box office chart). The soiree was a predictably star-studded affair, with Jennifer Lopez, Marion Cotillard, Elizabeth Banks, Grace Jones, Michelle Rodriguez, Mischa Barton, Kristen Dunst, Naomi Campbell, Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson and countless others (including Gerard Butler and Russell Crowe, somehow not disrupting the time-space continuum) enjoying performances by Mary J. Blige and Patti Smith. See what everyone wore in the gallery below.

Casting Couch: Top Ten Actresses That Could Replace Megan Fox In Transformers 3

foxreplacements

Hey there, Michael Bay! Not sure that we’ve been properly introduced. Here at The FABLife, we’re big fans of the way you are able to subtly wrench powerful emotional performances out of your actors, and we’re surely not the first to tell you that your mise-en-scène would make Truffaut weep with jealousy. Just kidding, we mostly love you because there’s no one better in the business at blowing sh*t up.

And hey, we heard the news that you fired Megan Fox from Transformers 3. We applaud the decision; after all, you can’t let some scrawny, hammer-thumbed bimbette tarnish the directorial legacy that you’ve been building ever since you first stepped behind the lens as the director of Playboy Video Centerfold: Kerri Kendall! Gotta keep your eye on the prize, can’t let one bad apple ruin the bunch, we get it.

But since we’ve heard that you’ve already started filming the third installment of Transformers in Los Angeles, we figured you might need some help finding a new love interest for Shia LaBeouf. To that end, we have gone to the trouble of compiling a list of ten actresses who could replace that ungrateful harlot, Megan Fox, as well as the reasons you’ll want to talk to them. Hopefully this will save you some time and allow you to complete the film in time for its planned release date of July 4, 2012!

Adrien Brody Looks Lame In Leather At Cannes Armani Party

Adrien Brody

This is no way for a 37-year-old Oscar winner to dress. Actually, this is no way for any human being to dress, but we’re especially embarrassed that leather-loving Adrien Brody decided this look was appropriate for yesterday’s Armani yacht party at Cannes. The Lady Gaga shirt may be meant to suggest a fashion forward mindset, but he still looks like a cheap, sticky couch possessed by DJ Pauly D. Even if we didn’t hate this guy for stinking up every single movie he’s made since winning that Oscar for The Pianist (which we still haven’t seen because its a holocaust drama directed by a rapist and starring Adrien Brody), we’d still hate him for this suit. If he makes Predators suck, we suggest he be banned from anything that has the slightest chance of being awesome.

Thankfully, attendees like Emily Blunt, Naomi Watts, Benicio Del Toro and Natalie Imbruglia (she lives!) found more respectable attire for the soiree (Elizabeth Banks is still trying too hard, though). See what they wore in the gallery below.

Bella’s Windblown, Jane’s Snooty, Riley’s Furious In Latest Eclipse Posters

banners

We had hardly begun wiping up the drool from the Muse music video premiere, and these arrived in our inbox. Our friends/enablers over at Summit just made our day even better by sending us three new Eclipse character banners featuring the Volturi, the heart-throbbing trifecta, and the newborns led by Riley. From what we’ve seen thus far, there was no shortage of male hair product on this set. [Photo: Summit Entertainment]
