Here Are the Wildest Looks From Paris Couture Week

Laurent Viteur/Getty

PARIS—Twice a year in Paris, the world’s top couture designers, and a handful of haute jewelers, present gems most people could never afford and designs that show just how far you can go with a needle and thread in the name of making a lasting impression—both for better and worse.

Sometimes tacky, and often completely OTT, Couture Week shows both how wrong you can get it with thousands of Swarovski crystals at your disposal or too much satin, as well as sometimes unleashing original visionary design. This week, showcasing fall 2018 designs, revealed both extremes to full effect.

As the July shows proved, big and bold is back, and while some European designers seem to have run out of steam, foreign creatives, like China’s Guo Pei and Japan’s answer to Iris Apfel, Yumi Katsura, stole the show, sending walking bird cages and churches down the runway—in Guo Pei’s case—and bright green kimonos in Katsura’s, even though the last person to wear one in Paris, of note, was Elsa Schiaparelli in the 1930s.

The Best, Worst and Wildest Moments of the MTV Movie and TV Awards

The 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards made one thing perfectly clear: Tiffany Haddish should host every awards show for the remainder of 2018. Haddish had the audience rolling whenever stars of shows like Riverdale, Grown-ish, and 13 Reasons Why, even Lady Gaga herself, handed out Golden Popcorn prizes in gender-neutral categories like “Most Frightened Performance” and “Best Kiss.” While Stranger Things and Black Panther were nominated in the most categories, it’s clear that Haddish was the night’s biggest winner.

Here are the best, worst and wildest moments at the MTV Movie and TV Awards:

The Best Ten Minutes in Awards Show History

Thanks to the magic of CGI, Haddish was inserted into Black Panther as if the cast of Girls Trip skipped New Orleans and went to Wakanda instead. There she recreated TLC’s “Waterfalls” video, threw down with T’Challa, yelled things like, “I am Tiffany Haddish and I know who bit Beyoncé!” and “You are so close to getting my face pregnant!” After winning the fight, she drank some purple drink that turned her into a unicorn who was ”horny as hell.” She then appeared on stage to perform a movie-themed version of Cardi B‘s “Bodak Yellow”. She was even dressed as Cardi B, pregnant thanks to Michael B. Jordan staring into her eyes. But Haddish didn’t stop there: She then reminded the crowd that she is the first black woman to host the award show, that Black Panther is the first African-American movie to make a billion dollars, and “A Quiet Place is the first film to scare black people outta talking in movie theaters.” She then set about making everyone from Riverdale, Stranger Things and Zendaya squirm—while cracking up the entire audience. Haddish then excused herself, because “usually when a black girl talks this much on MTV she just got Catfish-ed.“

Best Kardashian Recap

“That family is basically the Star Wars franchise,” Haddish joked. “They make a ton of money, a new one is always popping up and they’re ruled by a bossy overlord who sleeps in a mask and loves black men.” The jab earned laughs from Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian West.

Shortest (a.k.a. Best) Speech

Madelaine Petsch from Riverdale took the prize for Best Scene Stealer, who speech was nothing more than a heartfelt thank you. Perfect!

Best Dressed

Haddish once again wore the now-iconic white Alexander McQueen dress she wore to the Girls Trip premiere and when she hosted Saturday Night Live and at the 2018 Academy Awards.

Cutest Public Flirting

While Haddish shamelessly flirted with Michael B. Jordan, it was Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp who pulled it off best. When he took the stage after winning the prize for Most Frightened Performance for his role as Will, he couldn’t help but sweetly and shyly say, “Hi Zendaya.”

Best Hero

While Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman was grateful to win the award for ”Best Hero”, he wanted to acknowledge the real heroes in the world. Specifically, he wanted to highlight the heroism of James Shaw, Jr., who fought off a gunman at a Waffle House in Tennessee and then raised a lot of money for victims. Boseman handed him the trophy and told him it was going to live at his house.

Best Star Wars Reboot

Tiffany Haddish inserted herself into Star Wars: The Last Jedi and when Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren appears to her through their special bond, the Force can’t tear them apart. “A man in high-waisted pants is my biggest weakness!” she said. When he showed up a minute later in high-waisted pants, she had no choice but to take off her shirt just “to make him feel comfortable.” It was all uphill from there.

Best Description of 13 Reasons Why

Haddish explained that she started watching the show because she “thought it was the sequel to 12 Years A Slave.“

Most Inspirational Speech

When Keiynan Lonsdale won the coveted “Best Kiss” award for his lip-locking work in Love, Simon hit the stage, he urged kids to live their dreams. “I just want to say to every kid, if you can live your dreams and wear dresses, you can live your dreams — you can live your dreams and kiss the one that you love no matter what gender they are.”

Best Youth Outreach Program

Kristen Bell and Seth Rogen (who Haddish described as her “favorite bearded white man since Abraham Lincoln”) stepped on stage to promote their new film Like Father. Bell’s face was plastered in fake tattoos sure to appeal to the kids these days, including avocado toast , a bottle of rosé, and the logo for Wild Wild Country. Not to be outdone, Rogen got Vin Diesel’s face on his lower back.

Best Villain

Michael B. Jordan was shocked that he won Best Villain for his performance in Black Panther. while that sounds like the typical faux humility of a winner, Jordan was truly surprised: “I thought Roseanne had that in the bag!”

Parental Advisory

Haddish had a few concerns about Stranger Things. “Everyone thinks they are so cute, but hear me out: they ride bikes in a group, Eleven beats a**es and they always dropping bodies. Where I come from that’s a straight up gang.”

Best Public Service Announcement

While he had the spotlight, Jordan had a small request for the audience: “Chadwick Boseman asked me to ask you to stop asking him to say ‘Wakanda Forever!’”

Next Year’s Winner

A Dark-Ass Place, which is like A Quiet Place, but the monsters are deaf so you can make as much noise as you want if you keep the lights off. It stars Elizabeth Moss, Jamie Foxx, Dave Chappelle, and, of course, Tiffany Haddish, who dreamed up the whole thing when she couldn‘t stop talking during A Quiet Place.

Remembering Your Roots

Lena Waithe was awarded the Trailblazer prize, and dedicated her win to some other trailblazers — the stars of the documentary Paris is Burning. Jennie Livingston’s 1990 film documents New York’s underground drag scene that is wildly influential in today’s culture, even though many people don’t know where things like vogue-ing and the phrase “Yas Queen!” came from originally. While that may change thanks to the show Pose, as Waithe said, “They strutted through a brickwall so we wouldn’t have to.”

Best Historical Reenactment

Haddish showed up on stage in a stunning reproduction of the gown Meghan Markle war when she married Prince Harry. “Girl’s from my hood,” Haddish said by way of explanation.

Most Wide-Ranging Speech

Chris Pratt gave a speech that laid out nine rules that ranged from how to give a dog medicine (in hamburger meat), a reminder to not take anything for granted, tips on how to poop at a party, and a reminder to pray.

Best IRL Message

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown recently left Twitter over cyberbullying, used her Best Performance acceptance speech to deliver a powerful message. “There should be no space in this world for bullying,” she said. “I’m not going to tolerate it, and neither should any of you.”

Best Double Duty

Tiffany Haddish not only hosted the show, but also won for Best Comedic Performance. She came on stage in her bathrobe, exclaiming “She ready!”

Here Are the Wildest Looks From Paris Fashion Week

Getty/The Daily Beast

PARIS—Inside the dimly lit interiors of the Hotel de Ville, classical music played as Anna Wintour held court, standing in the murky shadows. Lesser mortals waited on benches set between the easels decorating Thom Browne’s Fall/Winter 2018 runway, like an artist’s studio.

A procession of models wearing dog’s heads were drawn by a female painter, while others showed-off Browne’s deconstructed designs that recast the idea of the feminine in this collection that was inspired by Marie Antoinette’s official portraitist, Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, a rare female painter who succeeded in an 18th century male-dominated milieu.

Another model wore a bulging plastic sculpture that resembled a woman’s body splitting at the seams, bringing to mind some of the over-sized, provocative women painted by Le Brun from the society of her day.

‘Tag’ is It: Why This Is Sure to Be the Wildest Comedy of the Summer

‘Tag’ is It: Why This Is Sure to Be the Wildest Comedy of the Summer

When you think of movies based on a true story, you think of something serious and aiming for authenticity. Tag isn’t that at all. Not only is it an action comedy, but it’s also one that plays very loose with its story and characters. When Fandango visited the Atlanta set of the movie last summer, we witnessed the filming of a scene with tons of improvisation and met an ensemble with the goods and the collective chemistry to steer the wildest and funniest release of the year….

MOVIE APP UPDATE:

Dakota Fanning talks child stardom, sparring with sister Elle and the wildest thing she’s ever done

From Hollywood child star to modern ingenue, Dakota Fanning’s rise to success has been seamless and without scandal. She tells Martha Hayes where it all went right.

Dakota Fanning

Dakota Fanning has an eye roll is so spectacular, it deserves its own meme.

Becoming famous at the age of seven, followed by 16 years of being asked the same questions repeatedly, has given her ample practice.

The worst offenders allude to how much she’s ‘grown up’ since making her Hollywood debut in I Am Sam (2001) (becoming the youngest actress in history 
to be nominated, at eight, for a Screen Actors Guild Award); what it was like ‘working with Tom Cruise’ 
in War Of The Worlds (2005) 12 years ago; and finally, isn’t it a miracle that she didn’t ‘go off the rails’ like so many other child stars. Ugh.

And so it becomes my mission when meeting the now 23-year-old in London for our cover shoot to not give 
her any opportunity to roll her eyes.

Settled on a big 
sofa in the middle of a bustling studio on a balmy Sunday afternoon, I tell her I’m assuming she probably has gone off the rails in secret and ask her what’s the wildest thing she’s ever done. ‘It would absolutely not be printable,’ she says laughing, clapping her hands. Definitely no eye roll here.

Dakota Fanning on Hollywood

Dakota Fanning

‘It always cracks me up when people talk about how I haven’t gone off the rails − which I have not, by any means − but you know, I’m a normal person. I love a party and I love having people over for any occasion since I’ve had my own apartment in New York. I’m always like, “You can stay with me!” I don’t cook, but I make cocktails. I make a good margarita.’

Comfily dressed in a navy ribbed sweater and slouchy navy sweatpants, Dakota Fanning has just flown in from Budapest, where’s she’s spent the last six months filming psychological period drama series The Alienist. Described by Netflix as ‘a headstrong secretary determined to become the first female police detective [in 1870s New York],’ Sarah Howard sounds like a dream of a role for Fanning’s first foray into the golden era of television.

Her commitment and attachment not only to the part but to the cast (including Luke Evans and Daniel Brühl) and crew, makes me warm to her quickly. Not just because, on a superficial level, she sounds really fun (‘On one of the first nights they threw an event and
 I stole all the actors and took them back to my apartment. That was my first party…’) but because she talks with an honesty and sincerity when she could so easily be more jaded.

She is a stickler for routine, and while signing up for a six-month TV show could be daunting, she admits she found it comforting. ‘I like knowing where I’m going to be and making myself at home. [I] work so hard to get comfortable and get to know people. I love the life I’ve had in Budapest.’

As a result, she found reaching the end of the project quite emotional. ‘When you wrap your scenes, the producer or director might say a little something about you. And when they did, I just burst into tears and sat there crying in front of the entire cast and crew.’

Dakota Fanning on growing up as a child star

Dakota Fanning

Always the ingénue and constantly defined by her childhood roles, which also include Charlotte’s Web (2006), or her teen roles in Twilight (2009, 2010, 2012) or The Runaways (2010), I tell Fanning it was refreshing to see her in Ewan McGregor’s American Pastoral last year playing a political terrorist (and with a convincing stutter to boot). ‘But you know what would crack me up? People would say that was my “grown-up” role. I was playing
a 16-year-old. That was my grown-up role!’

Around the time of making American Pastoral, Fanning pushed herself out of her comfort zone further by playing a mute wife and mother in western thriller Brimstone alongside Guy Pearce and Kit Harington. She is keen to direct, and will produce as well as play the protagonist in the much-anticipated big-screen adaptation of Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar, directed by her friend Kirsten Dunst.

‘I am definitely ambitious,’ explains Fanning, who is also enrolled on a women’s studies course at NYU, with a focus on the portrayal of women in film and culture. ‘I’ve never been the kind of person who has been  
like, “I want to do this, this and this, and then I’ll be happy.” Professionally, I am very ambitious but those ambitions reveal themselves, subconsciously, as the challenges come along.’

She’s aware that she is lucky her love of the profession has ‘never wavered’ when a lot of her friends are still figuring their lives out. But in an Insta generation where most actors have a fashion line or a lifestyle platform, does she feel a pressure to do something on the side?

‘I do have moments where 
I feel like nowadays being just an actor isn’t enough. I was listening to Anna Faris Is Unqualified, which I love, and I was like, [in a paranoid whisper] “She’s 
an actor. Now she has a podcast… am I supposed 
to get a podcast?!”

‘It used to be that if you were an actor and you did certain things, it was cheesy, but things are changing so much. I like that the lines are blurred and you’re allowed to do those things. I just don’t know if I have anything 
I would feel authentic doing yet, because we can tell when it’s not real, right? When somebody doesn’t actually believe in what they’re doing?’

Dakota Fanning on the simple life lesson her mother taught her

For someone so accustomed to Hollywood, Fanning lacks any sense of entitlement and is unfailingly polite. Everything I’d read before meeting her suggested this was going to be the case, but while that’s preferable to a monster ego, I worried it could make her a bit robotic or sedate. I’ve come to the conclusion she’s just incredibly well adjusted and at ease with herself.

She arrives at the cover shoot on her own (which is unusual) and talks to everybody – from the photographer to the stylist’s assistant – in the same, chatty tone. Her body language during the interview 
also speaks volumes; bare feet up on the sofa, leaning forward when she laughs.

It’s no surprise, then, when she tells me the biggest lesson her mother instilled in her growing up was treating other people well. ‘There are so many things that are out of your control in life and what you can control is how you treat other people,’ she explains. ‘My mom is very selfless. She’s done everything for me and my sister 
and thought about us a thousand times before she has ever thought about something for herself. I hope to be that way,’ she adds with a giggle. ‘I try.’

Originally from a town east of Atlanta, in Georgia, on the surface it could be assumed her mother – a retired tennis player – and salesman father were pushy stage parents for uprooting the family to La La Land, but it was only ever intended to be temporary.

An enthusiastic performer from the age of five, Fanning was encouraged by a drama teacher to sign up with a local agent and maybe do a couple of commercials. When her mother took her to visit her aunt in LA that summer, she attended some auditions – and kept getting work. Eventually Fanning’s father, sister and grandmother moved out to join them. And she credits that strong female household for keeping her grounded.

‘Seeing my mom be a stay-at-home mom, I saw the 
strength in that; in choosing to dedicate her life to being the best mom,’ she recalls. ‘I remember promoting The Runaways, [about the first all-girl rock band, co-staring Kristen Stewart] and being asked, “Have you ever been told you couldn’t do something because you were a girl?” And I was like, “No,
I haven’t”, and I realised that in growing up with very strong women, I [always had] the feeling there was nothing I couldn’t do.’

They are a close-knit, sporty family. ‘I would be disowned if I said I didn’t like sport. My mom would 
be like, “How could you say something like that?!” It’s true, I do like it, I just can’t play because I don’t have the drive or passion to be a professional athlete. Or the talent… let’s be honest.’

Dakota Fanning’s relationship with her sister Elle Fanning

💚💙💜 thank you @miumiu love you @ellefanning

A post shared by Dakota Fanning (@dakotafanning) on

Does that make Elle, her younger sister also in the industry, her sparring partner? They certainly know how to wind each other up. ‘She thinks I’m turning into our mom, which I guess is inevitable for everybody, I don’t know. She’s like [puts on moany voice], “You and Mom – you’re like two moms!” Our mom is a constant reminder of “don’t forget to do this, and don’t forget to do that” and I am turning into a reminder. I can’t help it.’

Jokes aside, despite being in the same competitive industry, Fanning and her famous sister have a great relationship, largely because of how organically both their careers developed. ‘All of a sudden, it kind of happened and we kept going because we enjoyed it,’ she says. ‘But we don’t talk about it that much. We have our own separate relationship with what we do. We’ve never felt the need to get into it.’

The four-year age gap hasn’t always been easy. ‘There are a few years where you’re both experiencing such different things; age nine and 13 – nothing in common; 12 and 16 – we didn’t know what to do with each other. Now as she’s getting older and I’m getting older we’re getting closer… and that’s really lovely.’

As separate as they view their careers, isn’t it likely they’ll both go up for the same role one day? ‘We’ve had scenarios where we’ve gone to meet the same person and it’s totally fine. To us, we’re so different.’

In the time I’ve spent with Fanning, I’ve discovered she is fun-loving, loyal, ambitious and passionate about 
New York, where she’s lived since she was 18 – not bad going considering she once said, ‘If I can achieve it, I don’t want anyone to know anything about me.’

‘I know, I don’t really say anything!’ She’s reluctant to talk about relationships, money or politics. ‘I do still feel that way. I think there’s something cool about being a little mysterious, which is hard to do nowadays.’

Dakota Fanning

She initially resisted joining Instagram (she now has 1.8m followers), ‘but I would get frustrated with people talking about my “grown-up” roles’ and she wanted the right to reply. ‘I thought, I’m not making that big of an effort to show people who I actually am.’

Hers is an unselfconscious and casually curated feed of ‘little flashes of my sense of humour or things I care about.’ I couldn’t help noticing her love of Whispering Angel rosé wine. ‘Oh my god, it’s the best,’ she cries. 
I had been tempted to bring her a bottle as a gift, 
but I didn’t want her to take it the wrong way. ‘I would have welcomed it with open arms,’ she reassures me. ‘And we would be drinking it right now!’
