Michael Howells, Production Designer in Film and Fashion, Dies at 61

LONDON — Michael Howells, the fashion, film and theatre production designer whose work ranged from the dramatic runway sets for John Galliano’s Dior shows to the period backdrops for ITV’s “Victoria,” has died, according to his company Michael Howells Studio.
Howells, who wove his passion for history, travel, literature and the arts into his dramatic sets and costumes, died Wednesday of complications from a heart condition. He was 61, and is survived by his mother, a sister and a nephew.
A tall, gentle and elegant man with a razor-sharp intellect and fertile imagination, regularly collaborated with Galliano on the designer’s own label and at Dior. He also worked with Christian Lacroix and Alexander McQueen.
In 2007, Galliano told WWD that he would brief Howells — and then let him go wild. “He makes the magic happen and works out how to find a merry-go-round and transform Stade de France into a tumbledown Hamptons holiday,” said the designer. The carrousel from 1900 that Howells eventually found had to be dismantled and brought to the show piece by piece, by crane.
Galliano was referring to the October, 2006 show for his label, which was inspired by “Grey Gardens.” With help from Howells, Galliano had arranged a seaside

Chanel Sponsors Restoration of Sixties Film Featuring Costumes by Gabrielle Chanel

COSTUME PARTY: Chanel has sponsored the restoration of Alain Resnais’ 1961 masterpiece, “Last Year at Marienbad,” starring Delphine Seyrig in a series of dresses designed by Coco Chanel.
Poignantly, Studio Canal’s newly restored digitized version of the film will premiere as part of the classic film section at the Venice Film Festival where the original film was awarded a Golden Lion close to 60 years ago.

“Last year at Marienbad,” 1961, Alain Resnais. 
1960 STUDIOCANAL – Argos Films – Cineriz – All Right Reserved

The process included cleaning up flaws and readjusting the color grading to highlight the photography and lighting developed by Sacha Vierny and Alain Resnais using a Dyaliscope lens. The soundtrack was also restored using the original 35mm mix.
Accessorized by pearls, the film’s costumes were based on “a wardrobe tethered to everyday life but that evoked the allure of 1920s cinema stars, as well as a modern and timeless elegance,” according to Chanel.

All About Angelina Jolie’s Connection to Cambodia That Led to Her Golden Globe Nominated Film

Angelina Jolie has a strong connection to Cambodia, the country that inspired her to make her Golden Globe nominated movie, First They Killed My Father.

Based on Cambodia human rights activist Luong Ung’s memoirFirst They Killed My Father documents her experience as a young girl under the brutal rule of the Khmer Rouge.

The actress’ history with the country began in 2000 when she filmed the hit Tomb Raider on location and later returned two years later to adopt her first child, Maddox. 17 years later, Jolie, 41, has introduced the rest of her brood to the South Asian country nestled between Vietnam and Thailand through her Netflix passion project, which is up for the best foreign language film award at Sunday’s Golden Globe.

RELATED: Angelina Jolie Brings All Six Children to “First They Killed My Father” Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival

“We’ve been coming back and forth for 17 years, it feels like a second home to me,” Jolie told reporters at a press conference the day before the film’s Cambodia premiere where she stepped out with the whole family. “The children have close ties to the children here, many of them are their best friends. Maddox is happy to be back in his country.”

Jolie fell in love with Cambodia while filming her role as Lara Croft role in Tomb Raider. She found the poverty-stricken country still recovering from the genocide inflicted by the Khmer Rouge regime, which led to the deaths of nearly a quarter of the population from 1975 to 1979. The group was active until 1999, and the war tribunals started in 2009 are ongoing.

Despite the terror endured by average Cambodians, Jolie recently told Vanity Fair of her first visit, “I found a people who were so kind and warm and open, and, yes, very complex. You drive around here you can see a lot of people with many things, but not often expressing happiness. You go there, and you see the families come out with their blanket and their picnic to watch a sunset.”

The Netflix movie, directed by Jolie, was shot on location with Maddox, 15, and Pax, 13, working on the production and their siblings — Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — joining the family during filming.

It was an especially personal shoot for Maddox as he helped research the devastation inflicted on Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge communist party in the 1970s that killed nearly 2 million people in a population of 7 million. “He was the one who just called it and said he was ready and that he wanted to work on it, which he did,” Jolie recently told The Guardian of Maddox’s role in the film. “He read the script, helped with notes, and was in the production meetings.”

Shortly before its release the actress expressed hope that by shedding light on the genocide in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge communist party’s regime, the Cambodian people will take pride in what they survived instead of feeling hatred or resentment for what the country endured in the late 1970s.

“I hope this doesn’t bring up hatred. I hope this doesn’t bring up blame,” Jolie told the BBC in a behind-the-scenes special produced by the British TV network about the genocide and the making of her film that aired on Sunday. “I hope the people of this country are proud when they see it, because they see what they’ve survived.”

The 2018 Golden Globes are set to air Sunday, January 7, on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PST. First They Killed My Father is available to watch on Netflix.

Cate Blanchett to Preside over 71st Cannes Film Festival

WOMAN’S HOUR: Call it the Harvey Weinstein effect. Two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett is to be president of the jury at the 71st edition of the Cannes International Film Festival, making her the 12th woman to fill the role in the festival’s history. Spanish director Pedro Almodovar occupied the seat last year.
The festival will be held from May 8 to May 19 – the day of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding – and this year will open on a Tuesday and end on a Saturday.
The 48-year-old Australian actress, who has been vocal in her support of the women who have come forward in the Weinstein affair after a series of sexual assault statements were made against the producer, is also one of 300 female Hollywood actors, directors, producers, agents, writers and executives backing the recently launched Time’s Up initiative to help fight sexual harassment in the workplace.
Declaring she was “humbled by the privilege and responsibility” of the role, Blanchett in a statement on Thursday shared some of her own achievements as a festival regular. Most recently, in 2015, she attended the event for “Carol” by Todd Haynes, a film that she co-produced with the Weinstein Co. and

Olivia Munn and Multiple Women Accuse Film Producer Brett Ratner of Sexual Misconduct

Movie producer Brett Ratner has been accused of multiple cases of sexual misconduct or harassment — including by actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge.

In an article published by the Los Angeles Times Wednesday, six women spoke out against the longtime Hollywood power player, 48, who directed the Rush Hour series and produced movies including Horrible Bosses and The Revenant.

In a statement to the L.A. Times, Ratner’s attorney Martin Singer vehemently disputed the specific allegations and said “no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment. Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client.”

Munn claims that while visiting the set of the 2004 Ratner-directed film After the Sunset, he masturbated in front of her.

“He walked out … with his belly sticking out, no pants on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other,” Munn said. “And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated.”

Munn said she let out a “startled scream” and raced out of the trailer. She said she immediately told the man who told her to go into the trailer. “It wasn’t a shock. It wasn’t surprise,” Munn recalled the man saying. “It was just, ‘Ugh, sorry about that.’ ”

Munn said she told her sister, Sara Potts, about the incident, who urged her to speak with a lawyer. Potts confirmed Munn’s account to the L.A. Times.

The actress said the attorney dissuaded her from going up against a powerful director.

“That did leave an impact on me,” Munn said. “How broken do women have to be before people listen?”

The actress wrote about the alleged incident in her 2010 collection of essays without naming Ratner. Later in 2010, Munn claims she saw Ratner at a party, where he reportedly bragged about ejaculating on magazine covers featuring her image.

“I’ve made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner,” Munn told The Times.

“It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won’t quit,” she said. “You just hope that enough people believe the truth and for enough time to pass so that you can’t be connected to him anymore.”

Ratner “vehemently disputes” Munn’s claims, Singer told The Times.

Actress and model Natasha Henstridge claims that when she was 19, she was forced to perform oral sex on Ratner in his New York apartment after watching a movie with a group of friends. Henstridge alleges Ratner blocked the doorway when she tried to leave and began touching himself.

“He strong-armed me in a real way,” she said. “He physically forced himself on me. At some point, I gave in and he did his thing.”

Singer disputed the allegation to the L.A. Times, saying Ratner spent time with Henstridge but claiming the actress was “upset after learning my client had a girlfriend who he would not leave” for her.

Actresses Jaime Ray Newman and Katharine Towne claim Ratner made unwanted, aggressive advances to them on a plane and at a party, respectively. Singer disputed both accounts. 

Four people involved on the film Rush Hour 2 also came forward to describe a “sexually charged” work environment, and two background actresses said Ratner pursued them and offered them speaking roles. Singer disputed the claims, and James M. Freitag, an assistant director on the set, told The Times in a statement that “any complaints of any kind including sexual harassment would be immediately directed to my attention. There were no complaints reported to me whatsoever.”

Ratner, whose next project as a director is a Hugh Hefner biography starring Jared Leto, has been romantically linked in the past to stars including Mariah Carey and Lindsay Lohan.

Coming Home: Manolo Blahnik Film Premieres at Curzon Cinema in London

MANOLO COMES HOME: After making its debut in New York, “Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards,” got its London premiere during fashion week on Monday night at the Curzon Bloomsbury cinema. Guests who numbered Blahnik, Charlotte Dellal, Stephen Jones, Isabeli Fontana, and Lulu Guinness, gathered to toast the celluloid love-letter to Blahnik and his life and work.
“His life is so filled with filmic moments, I’ve always thought his story would make for fascinating and entertaining cinema,” said Roberts – who wrote and directed the film.
For Blahnik, all the film’s praise – from Anna Wintour, John Galliano, Andre Leon Talley, Paloma Picasso, Naomi Campbell and Rihanna – made for some uncomfortable viewing. “I never believe anything like that – ‘You’re wonderful, You’re wonderful’ – it doesn’t touch me. I’m not very good with compliments and things like that,” admitted Blahnik after the screening.

Jones said his favorite moment was watching Blahnik and Galliano exchanging banter. “They both egg each other on to a place which should not be filmed,” said Jones with a smile. “But I love all of Blahnik’s funny little asides, and the arched eyebrows and the screams. Those were the best

Gareth Pugh And Nick Knight Screen Emotional “Non-Fashion” Film

HIGH ANXIETY: Gareth Pugh eschewed a show this season in favor of a film, directed by Nick Knight and screened at IMAX in London to an audience that had to run the gauntlet of aggressive anti-fur protestors to enter the venue.
The anxiety caused by that arrival set adrenaline at an appropriate level for the on-screen drama.
“I didn’t want to make a fashion film; I wanted to make something that went a lot deeper and was more emotional,” Pugh said.
In fact, the opening scenes were more akin to the horror genre than the slick and stylized visuals the audience was expecting. The film opens with two besuited men, the designer was one of them, disfiguring each other’s faces and bodies with mud and paint in an unsettling way that evoked the darker works of Francis Bacon. The violent and perverse scene ends with Pugh naked and splayed on a table, covered in mud, the other man literally ripping apart his clay body.
The film progresses through scenes of dancers, choreographed by Wayne McGregor: a figure spinning in a dramatically high-collared coat, and eye-less models in hard metal gowns. The palette moves through grays to black, red, gold and white as the film lightens

Mytheresa.com Teams With Miu Miu on Capsule, Fashion Film

SHARK TALES: In retailers’ ongoing battle for exclusivity and newness, Mytheresa.com is partnering with Miu Miu to launch an exclusive capsule collection for spring 2017.
The line, a colorful concoction of Miu Miu signatures, features ready-to-wear, as well as handbags and footwear, and will land at Mytheresa.com on April 26. Focusing on bright prints and girly embellishments, the capsule captures the playful spirit that is Prada’s sister label’s signature.
Among the standouts are the brand’s popular ballet flats and slides updated in pastel-hued shearling, and trousers and shirts done in bright floral or polka dot prints.
To introduce the new collection, the Munich-based e-tailer has teamed with Danny Sangra, a Central Saint Martin’s graduate and established director, artist and illustrator, to produce a short film called “Shark.”

Caroline de Maigret Stars in Third Film for Chanel’s Gabrielle Bag

IN THE BAG: Following in the footsteps of fellow Chanel ambassadors Kristen Stewart and Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret feature in the third installment in a series of four short films to be released by the house this month to accompany the print ad campaign for the new Gabrielle bag lensed by Karl Lagerfeld.
Helmed by French director Olivier Assayas, and featuring Lee Hazlewood’s “The Girls in Paris” as its breezy soundtrack, the film, much like the static ad campaign, portrays de Maigret as the embodiment of Parisian chic.
Clad in distressed jeans and a little black jacket, a barefoot Maigret in the short, which was filmed in black and white in a single sequence-shot, can be seen moving through an empty Haussmann-era apartment scattered with the signs of a recent photo shoot like clothes racks and lights. She passes through a bedroom and picks up a diary marked “Rdv Gabrielle” before moving into the living room, slipping on a silver version of the bag sitting on the mantelpiece and reenacting the shoot she did with Lagerfeld.
The film has been released on Chanel’s web site and social channels, with a ‘making of’ film due to follow on April 20. The campaign’s fourth and

14 Movies We’re Thrilled To See At This Year’s Tribeca Film Festival

Spring doesn’t last long in New York City, but with it comes the Tribeca Film Festival. Kicking off Wednesday and continuing through April 30, this year marks the 16th iteration of Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal’s gala, founded to help revive downtown Manhattan after 9/11.

Tribeca’s television and virtual-reality lineups are a cut above most other festivals. Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” will premiere this week, and Ken Burns’ Vietnam War documentary series and the new season of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” are on tap for next week, as well as a slew of other titles. Additionally, the “Godfather” and “Reservoir Dogs” casts will reunite for anniversary retrospectives, and a handful of fascinating duos will sit down to discuss their craft, including Bruce Springsteen and Tom Hanks, Noah Baumbach and Dustin Hoffman, Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, and Barbra Streisand and Robert Rodriguez

Along the way, The Huffington Post will provide ongoing coverage of Tribeca’s buzziest movies, shows and events. It all starts with the opening-night premiere of the new Clive Davis documentary, followed by a concert featuring Aretha Franklin, Carly Simon, Barry Manilow, Jennifer Hudson, Dionne Warwick and Earth, Wind & Fire. Here’s a handful of titles that are on our radar over the next two weeks.

2017 Cannes Film Festival Announces Official Selection

CANNES-CANNES: The red carpet race is on.
Dior ambassador Marion Cotillard and fellow French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, a close friend of Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquière who also attended the Saint Laurent show in March decked out in body-con creations by Anthony Vaccarello, will be the stars of the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival in May.
They are the female leads of Arnaud Desplechin’s “Ismael’s Ghosts,” which will kick off the 70th edition of the festival. The movie’s potentially downbeat storyline centers around a widowed film director whose life is sent into a tailspin when his former lover returns from the dead.
Unveiling the official lineup at a press conference on Thursday, Thierry Frémaux, the event’s artistic director, said that the festival will be taking place in a “historic context for France,” falling “just days after an event that is playing out like a thriller,” referring to the country’s presidential elections.
“The festival will be suspended in time,” he added. “Let’s just hope that in the meantime, the situation with Syria and North Korea will not cast a shadow over this event that we hope will be a stable and festive moment.”

2017 Cannes Film Festival: Isabelle Huppert Named Face of Kering’s Women in Motion Program

WOMAN IN MOTION: Kering has chosen award-winning actress Isabelle Huppert as the face of the third edition of its Women in Motion program at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
The French actress, who won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar this year for her performance in Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle,” will appear on the official poster for the program of events, which ranges from talks with industry figures to the Women in Motion Awards, to be handed out at a dinner on May 21.
Kering, an official partner of the festival since 2015, said it chose Huppert because of her exceptional career and her strong links to the festival. She was president of the jury in 2009 and has been awarded the best actress prize on two occasions: in 1978 for “Violette Nozière” and in 2001 for “The Piano Teacher.”
Huppert follows in the footsteps of Frances McDormand, the face of last year’s event, and Jane Birkin, who was chosen to represent the inaugural edition of the program.
Through its talks, open to journalists and film professionals, Kering hopes to shed light on women’s contribution to film and share their recommendations for greater representation within the sector. Last year, guests included Jodie

Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Launch Mental Health Film Series

This is the kind of royal treatment mental health deserves.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are yet again lending their voice to those living with mental illness, this time with a 10-part film series through their mental health campaign Heads Together.

The initiative, which is called #OKToSay, features videos on the importance of speaking up for mental health. The goal is to encourage more people to start discussions around emotional well-being. Prince Harry is also participating in the project.

Attitudes to mental health are at a tipping point,” the royals said in a statement. “We hope these films show people how simple conversations can change the direction of an entire life. Please share them with your friends and families and join us in a national conversation on mental health in the weeks ahead.”

Each video showcases people with mental health issues as they talk about how acknowledging their condition helped them learn to accept and manage it. They also highlight stories about the person’s first time talking about mental health with a loved one. The conversations explore the importance of not staying silent when it comes mental illness.

The trio launched the new videos on Thursday right before World Health Day, which this year aims to focus on depression and the treatment gap for the disorder. Recent data from the World Health Organization found that depression rates have climbed 18 percent in the last decade. More than 300 million people globally experience the mental health condition, yet nearly half of them don’t get treatment.

Previous research suggests people may avoid seeking help due fear of shame from their peers. Public advocacy like William, Kate and Harry’s can help change that, according to experts.

Head on over to the Heads Together campaign’s website to watch the #OKToSay videos and learn more about the project.
