A few posts below we gave you the “Mama” first look published on Entertainment Weekly’s current issue. I have added the proper scan of it to the gallery, thanks to Ali who takes her time to scan it for us.
And as you can notice, we have a new layout up. As much I adore our previous one, I was looking for something a little different. The main image is a promotional “YSL Manifesto” photo – which you also can find here. The new look graces over our gallery as well, and I hope you like it. Please let me know if you find anything out of the place.
JESSICA CHASTAIN has turned up lately in so many movies all at once that audiences may be forgiven for imagining that with her ethereal manner (in “The Tree of Life,” anyway) and Botticelli looks — the alabaster skin, huge green eyes and cascade of auburn hair — she wafted into Hollywood on a seashell. In fact Ms. Chastain, who makes her Broadway debut in “The Heiress” on Nov. 1, is a trained stage actress who spent four transformative years at Juilliard, from which she graduated in 2003.
On Labor Day, before the students had unpacked their stuff, she dropped by for a quick visit and headed right for Room 304, a big rehearsal space where first-year students spend most of their classroom time. “I was actually born in this room,” she said, laughing. “We had an exercise where we had to start as a fetus. There were people lying on the floor and screaming and crying, and then we were toddlers, and then there were people getting into relationships and divorces. It was the whole cycle of mankind, until we died.”
As previously reported, Jessica and Dan attended tonight at Jeffrey New York the “Fashion’s Night Out” event. Look how pretty she was:
