Portrait of an Artist

From legendary visual artists Yoko Ono and Tracey Emin, to groundbreaking musicians like Annie Lennox and Debbie Harry, to fashion giants such as Miuccia Prada and Diane von Fu?rstenberg, this collection of original interviews and Polaroid photographs of almost 30 trailblazing women spans creative industries, nationalities and generations to bring together a never-before- published collection of leading voices. Featuring an astounding range of names including FKA Twigs, Isabelle Huppert and Rei Kawakubo, this book creates both a portrait of each individual woman and – collectively – a powerful portrait of the impact of women on the creative industries. Each pioneering creative is interviewed and photographed by the Mexican artist Hugo Huerta Marin. The women speak openly with Huerta Marin about their challenges and joys; their vulnerabilities and their triumphs. Cate Blanchett reflects on the differences between acting on stage and in film; Marina Abramovic discusses her most radical piece of performance art; Annie Lennox reminisces about London in the 1970s; Carrie Mae Weems discusses the relationship between race and photography —these and other conversations are further brought to life by Huerta Marin’s candid, intimate Polaroid images. These photographs, which allow readers to lock eyes with their subjects, reflect the natural tone of each conversation, allowing the reader rare insight into the lives of these renowned artists. Inspiring and revealing, this collection of interviews and photographs gives readers an unparalleled connection with some of the most fascinating women working in the arts today.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer

Here’s the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the final part of the trilogy. (And yes, we see Galadriel for about 2 seconds in it!). The movie will open in theaters in December

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

Cate Blanchett at ‘The Hobbit’ Premiere in London: Givenchy Fabulousness

Cate Blanchett attended the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey premiere last night in London, and, oh my, she looked Fabulous! I’ll have pictures later tonight, here’s an article:

Cate Blanchett at London Premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyThe Aussie diva is back in the spotlight with the “Lord of the Rings” prequel, and as always, is wearing something unique and seemingly only meant for her.

Cate Blanchett is among the most stylish actresses alive — and unlike almost any others outside of Sarah Jessica Parker, she has a style that is completely consistent: avant-garde, clean, angular, modernly simple with a twist. It’s so consistent that we can discern that the taste is actually hers — even if she does work with a stylist.

Back in the spotlight doing the red carpet in London for the opening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey — no doubt a blockbuster in the making — she donned a spring 2013 white Givenchy gown with the unlikely elements of long sleeves, a slit up the side of the skirt, and a very open back. It’s both a monastic dress and a very sexy dress. One thing we’re sure of: this awards season is going to be the Season of The Back. Forget regular cleavage. It’s all about showing the muscles in ones back and shoulders. Reverse cleavage might be a way to describe it.

This is such a Blanchett dress, and she has grown loyal to Givenchy designer Nicolas Ghesquiere – so what will this devotee do when Ghesquiere steps down from Givenchy and gives the reigns to Alexander Wang very soon?

Probably have Ghesquiere design clothes for her! Let’s hope it doesn’t take him long to do his own line. He truly is a couturier and Paris couture won’t be the same without him. Just like the red carpet isn’t the same — or as edgy and cool — without Blanchett.

  • Here is the synopsis:

    [quote style=”1″]“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.[/quote]

    The movie opens December 14th.
