After six years together Leonardo DiCaprio and model Bar Refaeli have decided to split. A source close the model told The New York Post that the split "was amicable, they're still friends and they are still talking....They just grew apart and went their separate ways." According to the source, nobody else was involved in the split. "Neither were ready to settle down, and both have busy careers that have been taking them in different directions," the source continued.
Another stunning cover for Interview magazine hit the web on Wednesday, featuring the ever beautiful Marion Cotillard in a palette of black, white and red. The two covers previous to this also took on this theme of colour, with close up shots of Megan Fox, Madonna and Carey Mulligan, and although it may seem that the reoccurring mathematics of a monotone and red palette, and flawless close-up shot may be the norm, the recent covers are actually a far cry from the past of the magazine.
Founded by Pop Art legend Andy Warhol and British journalist John Wilcock in 1969, Interview places itself in the hip celebrity pop culture market, with vintage covers ranging from Leonardo DiCaprio holding inflatable lips reading "Kiss Me" (no need to ask, Leo), to polaroid snaps of celebs and Pop Art portraits. However four of the magazine's 2010 covers, and nine of its 2009 covers conform to this newly made cover rule, along with a drop in the amount of male stars - from three in 2008, to one in 2009 and so far only Jay Z this year.
We can't explain the reasoning behind Interview's change of heart in cover shots, and although we love the beautiful head shots of late, we'd like to see our favourite, unconventional publication return to its roots and inject some fun - and maybe a few smiles - into its cover shots. What do you think?
Being born the son of clothier Christian Restoin and editor of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld, you would expect 25 year-old Vladimir to have become accustomed to the idea of exclusivity within the industry's elite, however it seems the young curator (or 'art tailor' as he prefers), begs to differ. “I was going to different exhibitions and it always had this feeling of a closed circle, and it was something very hard to enter for many,” he revealed. “So I thought if I just did it in a different way, I could capture the interest of a different crowd of people."
And that was precisely what he did, attracting a fabulous, fashionable and eclectic crowd of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jean Paul Gaultier, Mary-Kate Olsen and Patrick Demarchelier to name a few, with the three art shows he has held so far in New York. “I am still discovering everything as I’m doing it,” he told The Observer recently, “I love New York. When you’re young and studying a business, it’s a city that inspires you to do a lot.”
Ridley Scott, the renowned director who has brought us films such as Gladiator, Thelma and Louise, American Gangster, and Hannibal, amongst others, is set to cast Angelina Jolie in his upcoming movie, Gucci. The film will depict the intrigue and drama of the high-fashion world that was the Gucci dynasty in the 70s and 80s when the family's annual sales amounted to around $500million. Although the script is still being written, Scott intends on portraying the power struggle that ravaged the family until Maurizio, the grandson of the founder Guccio Gucci, came out on top.
Israeli-born model Bar Refaeli flew from New York to Madrid to step out in the name of exercise today. Launching the Reebok Fitness Programme - and the oh-so-sassily named new Reebok Easy Tone shoes - Refaeli looked ready for the gym in a blue vest top and black capris.
All we want to know is this: If we work out in those trainers, do we get to date Leonardo DiCaprio?
