Top 10 Celebrity Costumes for Halloween

Posted from The Citrus Report

A lot of people are going to be celebrities this Halloween, and a lot of them are going to be either Life Aquatic characters (its really old now, but you will see that guy in a red beanie) or Snooki. Maybe a Michael Jackson or Heidi Montag, too. Its going to be that kind of night. Justin Bieber will be big, too.

We at The Citrus Report want to stir it up a little, make it so the celebrity you pick will not be replicated at your Halloween Party. So, please, come with us on a journey of Halloween Celebrity Costume proportions. —The Citrus Report staff

Even if you don’t like fashion, Thom Browne in astronaut costumes is a good way to announce a line

Posted from The Citrus Report

Thom Browne is polarizing. Some like his shirts and suits, some think its way too overpriced and ridiculously cut to fit about 4 people in the world. We are somewhere in the middle. We like his shirts a lot, like the odd fit, but we will not pay the cost to be the boss. Give us a sale, we are on it. But full-price, $400 shirts? Nah, we pass.

But Thom Browne does a really cool fashion show. Take this past week at the Paris Fashion Show to showcase the Spring/Summer 2011 line. Astronauts. Vintage style. Couldn’t see anyone actually wearing the suits, but the way it was presented was cool.

Tim Burton at LACMA

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is bringing the goods from MoMA in NYC with the Tim Burton retrospective. After the show in NYC was one of the best draws in the history of the MoMA, the LACMA decided Los Angeles may be a good place for a Hollywood outsider/legend/insider to be honored.

From LACMA:

“On view at LACMA from May 29 through October 31, 2011, the exhibition brings together over 700 drawings, paintings, photographs, moving-image works, storyboards, puppets, concept artworks, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, including art from a number of unrealized and little-known personal projects. Many of these objects come from the artist’s own archive, as well as from studio archives and private collections of Burton’s collaborators.”

Harry Potter: The Exhibition

05potter articleLarge Harry Potter: The Exhibition  the exhibition harry potter Emma Watson discovery times square daniel radcliffe

One day, when Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe are counting their millions, they can look back on the Discovery Times Square exhibit, titled ever so simply, “Harry Potter: The Exhibition.” As the NY Times notes, “14,000-square-foot display of movie sets, costumes and props would come at the end, where Potterphiles can line up to purchase $44.99 replicas of Albus Dumbledore’s magic wand or $49.99 replicas of Gryffindor’s school tie, as they prepare, perhaps, to go in style to see the saga’s final film this summer.”

This author has never seen a Harry Potter film, never read a Potter book, but knows very well about Emma Watson getting her haircut and studying at university in American. Ignorance is sometimes not bliss.
