dust off those ballet shoes

Hiya

Tonight they give out the awards at Cannes and we’ll know what Natalie and the other jury members considered to be the best of the festival. Until then, a few odds and ends to tide you over.

Starting off with a possible new project for Natalie. Its in French so a good translation would be very helpful but apparently Natalie might be starring in a biopic about Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald. According to her wikipedia page the couple “were the embodiment of the jazz age and the roaring twenties” and that Zelda was “the first American flapper”. We all know how much Natalie loves that style. Right now take it with a pinch of salt until we can at least get a good translation. Thanks to Padme Amidala.

I think that’d make a good subject for a temporary poll. I’ll be doing a big poll about Natalie’s Cannes looks in a day or two.

So…Natalie as Zelda Fitzgerald?

Here are the results of the previous poll:

What do you think of Natalie’s Indiana Jones premiere dress?

Not bad but a bit forgettable. 36.69% (204 votes)

One of the very best. Gorgeous. 29.5% (164 votes)

Great from the neck down. 19.78% (110 votes)

One of the very worst. Awful. 9.71% (54 votes)

Great from the neck up. 3.6% (20 votes)

Today we also have the first official bit of New York, I Love You publicity – a teaser poster. Thanks to (who else?) Fanatical.

Next up is another video clip. At the 11 second mark we see Natalie briefly whiz past in an outfit that we haven’t got any pictures of yet. Thanks to Fanatical.

Finally, I just wanted to draw your attention to these two galleries again. The Indy premiere gallery now has several lovely additions like the image below, while the white dress amfAR gallery has TOOOONS of new additions, including a bunch with Devendra. With her dress and his unique looks they look like some kind of alternative reality Cinderella and the prince.

Will be back with more later.

    I’m excited about New York I love you. Hopefully it will be as good as Paris je t’aime, which is one of my favorite films.

    FYI, Fashionista.com says that Natalie will grace the cover of Vogue for their big September issue.

    I’m too lazy to translate the article, but there is not a lot of infos, most of it is about how great Natalie is.

    Here’s the paragrah about the movie:
    In The other side of paradise, she will play the role of Zelda Fitzgerald, the spouse of the famous author of the Great Gatsby, considered in the 20’s as the incarnation of the perfect woman. She had a tragic destiny:suffering from bad relations with her husband, but also from schizophrenia, she was put in an asylum at the age of 30, and died 17 years later when the building burned down. The title refers to the first book published by Francis Scott Fitzgerald: The other side of paradise.

    Personal note: I hated The Great Gatsby =/
