Jessica Lange for Marc Jacobs Beauty

While Marc Jacobs might have received some flak for hiring Miley Cyrus for its Spring 2014 ad campaign, the label will surely win those fans back (and then some!) with the announcement of their decision to hire Jessica Lange as the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty.

The brand offered up a preview - shot by David Sims - in which Lange naturally pulls off the sultry-but-fierce look beneath some very noir-ish shadows. Even Jeurgen Teller couldn't resist photographing that face!

Justin Bieber to Be Questioned About Attack

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Meltdowns,

Justin BieberJustin Bieber will be deposed and questioned about an attack on a photographer.

The "Baby" hitmaker, who is being sued for allegedly instructing his bodyguard to attack Jeffrey Binion and take his camera after he took photographers of the 19-year-old star outside a recording studio in Miami last June, had tried to block the paparazzo's lawyers from interviewing him about the incident but a judge dismissed his appeal, according to documents filed in the city's Third District Court of Appeal last Tuesday.

"Miami Judge Sarah Zabel initially denied Bieber's requests to stop Binion's lawyers from deposing him and asking questions about other incidents involving him and his varied bodyguards' aggressive behavior. Although Bieber's lawyers appealed the judge's rulings, the appeal was denied. Bieber can no longer hide. Binion's lawyers are waiting for a deposition date to be set in Miami," a source said.

The judge also denied the Canadian star's request to stop the public's right to view his scheduled videotaped deposition.

Barneys Ad

Although Barneys was in hot water over racial profiling allegations several months ago, the high-end retailer is making strides in the LGBTQ community with their latest ad campaign, which features trans* models.

The series - shot in black and white by famed photographer Bruce Weber - features 17 models (some professional models, while others are students, activists, and musicians) dressed in designer duds and situated among their family members. Titled “Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters," the images will be accompanied by interviews with the models sharing their personal stories regarding their lives as trans* people. “I hope that my photographs and films of these 17 new friends, who are transgender men and women, convey the respect I have for them and how I stand in awe of their courage to face the world,” Weber said.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, Videos,

Cameron Diaz with 'The Body Book'In a sea of advertisements where underage models are constantly used and already-thin celebrities are edited until their unrecognizeable, model-turned-actress Cameron Diaz has come to change things with her new book, The Body Book.

A short behind-the-scenes video of Diaz photographing women (of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities!) for her book has been released (seen after the jump) in which the Counselor star promotes overall health and loving one's body instead of weight loss.

The 41-year-old has also been promoting going makeup free, as she even appeared in a photo holding a copy of The Body Book with what seems to be a completely fresh face!

Hopefully more celebrities take notice and jump onto Diaz's body-positive bandwagon.

Anjelica Huston Recalls Suicide Attempt

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Dating, Meltdowns,

Anjelica Huston, photographed by Bob RichardsonAnjelica Huston tried to kill herself in "desperation" over her boyfriend's mood swings.

The 62-year-old actress met photographer Bob Richardson in 1969, when she was 18 and he was 42, and they had a tumultuous romance, made more difficult by the fact he was suffering from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. In her autobiography, A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London and New York, Anjelica writes, "I never felt so fragile or vulnerable as when Bob became demonic and flew into a rage, or worse, when afterward he retreated into his shell. One morning, four days into one of these ordeals, I walked into the bathroom at the Chelsea [Hotel] and, in desperation, drew a razor blade across my left wrist. I ran back into the bedroom, blood spurting from the vein, crying to him, 'Will this make you love me?'"

In her book, Anjelica also tells of how she caught the eye of actor Marlon Brando when she was just 16 and the then-53-year-old screen legend had been invited by her father, director John Huston, to their family estate in Ireland. "I went up to the Big House one morning and found a tanned, even-featured man in a maroon velour sweatshirt standing on the upstairs landing, talking to Dad, who introduced me to him. Marlon smiled and his lips curled. He spoke through his nose. That afternoon in the study, Marlon gave me a tortoise shell ring from Tahiti, inlaid with silver and asked me if I'd like to visit him there someday," she wrote.


Photographer Bruce Weber Praises Kim Kardashian

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities,

Kim Kardashian on the cover of 'DuJour'Kim Kardashian was more professional on set than real models, according to photographer Bruce Weber.

The famed lensman insists the Keeping up with the Kardashians star was "wonderful" to work with and he chose to shoot her for the March cover issue of high fashion magazine DuJour because of her warm persona around staff on set.

Weber - who has snapped such icons as Cindy Crawford and the late Elizabeth Taylor - revealed that Kim is more favorable to work with than many other models and celebrities he has shot: "At first I wanted to photograph her mom, Kris Jenner. She [Kim] came to the set. I always judge the person I'm going to photograph by how they are with my assistants and my crew - she looked at each one and introduced herself. She was just so personable with everyone. She was wonderful."

Beyonce Bans Press from Snapping Photos on Tour

BeyonceApparently, it is possible to capture unflattering photos of Beyonce.

The singer has banned all press photographers - save for her approved personal photographer Frank Micelotta - from taking any photos of her while performing on her latest tour, The Mrs. Carter Show.

The much buzzed-about action comes after unflattering photos of the 31 year-old surfaced online from her performance at this year's Super Bowl (right) - something she has vowed to prevent from occurring in the future with the new photographer ban.

Though she can stop press photographers, who's to say there won't be an audience member snapping up bad photos of her with an iPhone? In a world where photos can be taken and uploaded to the internet in moments, it's quite unrealistic to believe in preventing any unfavorable pictures. Perhaps the best route she can take is to learn how to control her extreme grimacing while performing.

The North American leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour arrives at the end of June.

Items Du Jour: Lana Del Rey Covers GQ, Katie Holmes Opens Up About Designing

Gisele Bundchen for ESPRIT+ "Born to Die" singer Lana Del Rey covers British GQ in nothing more than jewelry. Dubbed Woman of the Year by the men's magazine, her editorial on the inside of the glossy is apparently just as risque.

+ David Sims photographed Gisele Bundchen for the latest ESPRIT campaign, which features Mrs. Brady in a cool, tailored suit coupled with tousled sex hair (because that's totally how everyone wears their locks to work).

+ Singer of the infectious "Call Me Maybe" hit, Carly Rae Jepsen, is expanding her empire by modeling for Wet Seal. To celebrate the union, the clothing store is giving shoppers a chance to win a shopping spree with Jepsen, as well as tickets to see her and Justin Bieber in concert.

+ Katie Holmes opens up to WWD about her fashion career, in which she claims that she's not afraid to fail (although anyone with a hefty divorce settlement from Tom Cruise would also probably not be too afraid to waste money).
