    I just saw in imdb that Eva is number 1 on the StarMeter, I think it’s a first time for her! 300 is giving her a lot of (good) exposure :). I saw the movie and thought it was really entertaining and Eva gave an amazing performance, so badass.
    I actually really enjoyed the first movie and in my opinion this one was just as good, gave more of the same while still providing a fresh approach by expanding the world of 300 and adding more character development. It’s also doing well at the box office, especially overseas, which is nice considering that Dark Shadows underperformed.

    spot, I agree, although she was really good in 300 (actually the best thing about thing about it), I still think her best work was in Kingdom of Heaven (director’s cut of course) and also maybe The Dreamers, Casino Royale or Franklyn (which is so underrated). I also think that Camelot was probably the lowest point in her career.

    Johnny i agree about camelot. until this day i do not understand why she pick that role. Is supposed that she refuse work with Von Trier because that particular violent sex scene in the Antichrist movie, but frankly, some of the works of Eva also have explicit scenes and sometimes they feel complete gratuitous in movies/series that is not worth doing, like Camelot.

    Anyone know when it premieres White Bird in a Blizzard? Eva is receiving much attention for 300 and is showing that she CAN by box office hit (I absolutely believe that she is the main reason of the movie success) if Hollywood give her a chance and also because Shailene Woodley is a name that is gonna sound this year everywhere. So i hope they released soon and take advantage of that

    I´ve just seen she is number ONE on star meter and I hurried up here to let you guys know and I´m so so happy that I´m not the only one who is so exited about it :D No matter that she doesn´t really need some “starmeter” to prove that she is the best actrees in the world, I think it deserves a screenshot added into the gallery or at the news at least. I ´m so happy that she got a chance to show the whole world how great she is :)

    Any fan-celebration ideas?

    I also don’t think eva’s ever had a “low point” she’s a workin actor.she goes for roles she likes, morgana was an amazing role and she was the best thing on that show and joseph fines as merlin was prettu good too.I had an issue with the actor playin arthur cuz he ended up being annoying and eva.was.soo good everyone was rooting for morrigan.but who knows maybe that role helped her get the 300 role? She was pretty badass in camelot too.

    @ausrotten Not gonna lie, I cackled when I saw her drinking Coca-Cola. From a bottle no less. It’s just so random. Lol. I think both Camelot and Dark Shadows helped a lot in her casting for 300: Rise of an Empire.

    @leo White Bird in a Blizzard has already premiered in Sundance with mixed reviews…but Eva’s are glowing. I don’t think it’ll have a wide release, probably limited release only. The things is, no matter the cast, Araki’s style and films are just not for everyone’s taste and frankly, Woodley is not that big yet to be a selling point considering the plot.

    @micheska Ha! I agree about the screenshot!

    @johnny I don’t think she has a specific “lowest point” in her career. If I could choose, I’d probably pick Arsene Lupin because I still question her presence in it. Lol. For (new) fans not familiar with her and her choices, they’d probably choose the Franklyn—–Camelot period. Eva’s represented by UTA in Hollywood and UTA is great at monitoring their talents’ market appeal so I wouldn’t be surprised if we get news that she’s signed up for a new movie or two (attached at least) soon! ;)

    I thought she was amazing in Rise of an Empire but….I’d love to see her give a straight minimalist, restrained performance to show her range, in a conventional well-scripted drama where she’s not playing a femme fatale (Dark Shadows, Camelot, Rise of an Empire) and/or someone mentally ill (Cracks, Franklyn, White Bird, Womb). I know she seems to revel in those roles, and she’s great to watch, but I like the mixture of reserve, vulnerability and studied ambiguity she can bring to a straight role, which is very unlike how contemporary American actresses approach any part (they tend to douse it in sentiment). That’s what made her work in Bond (I know its heresy to mention her Bond role for many her!). Her Cracks character veered into insanity too quickly and too completely. She was interesting in Womb – there was the kind of thoughtful ambiguity I’m talking about -but it was woefully under scripted. Perfect Sense didn’t work for various reasons. I’d love to see her give a straight thoughtful, restrained performance as a fully-rounded character. She’s a great actress.

    I think I’m the only one who didn’t like 300….I’m waiting for Penny Dreadful….I hope her role as Vanessa is more complex and especially better written than Morgana or Miss G.

    I also think her role in Kingdom of Heaven is the best.

  • Antigonus
    Posted on March 20, 2014

    Incidentally @Ausrotten Eva’s character in Camelot is Morgan. The Morrígan is the Irish goddess of war – a character that would fit well into her repertoire….though I can’t really imagine Eva with red hair and an Irish accent!

  • Antigonus
    Posted on March 20, 2014

    I liked Kingdom of Heaven but her character seems to exist as something of a romantic foil for Orlando Bloom, she casually turns up at his castle and watches his well-digging and military exploits admiringly from the sidelines, he proves how noble he is by turning down her offer of power tainted with corruption, learns the error of her ways and eventually returns to his side chastened and shorn to share his life of noble simplicity. Aside from the death of her son – which is well dealt with – her character seems to exist to offer temptation and to highlight Orlando’s boring saintliness. Frankly he should have taken up her offer and acquiesced in the dispatch of the villainous Godfrey (which with hindsight would have been utterly justified). That’s her best line in the movie: ” There will be a day when you will wish you had done a little evil to do a greater good.” If he hadn’t been such a f**king prig the deaths of tens of thousands could have been avoided.

    I just cannot deal with the Balian character, I loved KoH’s Director’s Cut and Eva’s performance as Sybilla. I understand that she’s a secondary character so I know that the focus won’t be on her but I think Ridley Scott and William Moynahan stretched her character development as far as the script and plot would allow so I cannot fault them in it. But UGH at Balian’s life decisions. SMH. Jeremy Irons’ character said it best: “What’s so bad about marrying Sybilla?” Seriously DUDE.

    I agree so much on antigonus’ sentiments about her characters. We’re basically on the same page. As I said before, a quirky comedy or a straight out period drama would do. Heck, I badly even want to see her in political thriller. I really do want to see her in a role wherein she won’t have the devices of a period costume or make-up or CGI to help her with because I know she can do it. I also would like to see her go back to her theatre roots. Hopefully, she’d do a short run on a play whether in NYC or London.

    That said, I’m so here for Penny Dreadful and The Salvation.

    PS: Sadly, Penny Dreadful is not qualified for an Emmy nomination so all the early critics saying Eva would probably be nominated are wrong :(

    @Spot Thanks! Re Kingdom of Heaven Exactly! Put in Balian’s position, I’d be asking where the nearest armoury was, post haste!

    Posted on March 20, 2014

    when I said that Sybilla was her best role, I’m referring to her acting. Sybilla was badly written, but Eva acted superb as her.

    @spot I didn’t know Eva could have been nominated for an Emmy….But why penny dreadful is not qualified?

  • Johnny
    Posted on March 20, 2014

    First of all I think I was a bit misunderstood here, I never said Eva had a low point in her career, I just mentioned what I thought was the lowest point, which doesn’t necessarily mean that it is in fact low. Being top billed in a promising cable series, portraying a timeless character, isn’t bad by any means. Also the reviews weren’t that negative. Anyway a work career is never linear, it’s impossible to maintain the same level all the time. I didn’t like Camelot, it started well and ended okay, but it was just painful to watch mid-season, the actor who played Arthur was completely miscast, yet I still enjoyed Eva’s portrayal of Morgan, who was by far the most interesting character in that show. As for Arsène Lupin, I don’t even acknowledge that movie lol, it was just, well… bad.

    Kingdom of Heaven DC had clearly some frailties in the script, an uninteresting main character but it was a remarkable movie overall, I loved it. The secondary characters were actually far more interesting than Balian, especially Sybilla who was played by Eva wonderfully, surpassing the script and the restraints of her character, which was already fairly complex to begin with. Also I think Franklyn deserved a lot more attention, Eva was again very good and the movie was really unique, with an interesting premise and a wonderful atmosphere. You could tell that the director really needed a bigger budget, he was probably a bit too ambitious for his own good. He hasn’t done anything after Franklyn which is a shame, I was looking forward to see more movies from him.

    I agree with antigonous regarding Cracks and Womb, I had the feeling that you never really get to know Miss G and Rebecca, as different as they were obviously; the former was just too deep in her insane façade and the latter lacked development. Still, I enjoyed both movies, they were very atmospheric, especially Cracks. As for Perfect Sense I thought it was a very simple and beautiful movie, and Eva’s character was very normal, which was a nice change for her.

    leo, as spot already said, I also don’t think White Bird will get that much attention, Araki’s films only appeal to a specific niche and it’s getting mixed reviews at best. I’m still looking forward to it though. It will at least be a very stylish and beautiful movie to watch, that’s for sure.

    spot, as I said before I also would like to see her in a different kind of movie, but for a political thriller I would rather wait until she reaches her forties and gets a really juicy role in a TV show like Robin Wright in House of Cards or Connie Nielsen in Boss. Have you seen Arbitrage? It’s a political thriller, but the role she was up to was strangely very minimal and uninteresting. I also have the same query about Penny Dreadful, I though the Emmys were supposed to happen in late summer.

  • spot
    Posted on March 20, 2014

    Penny Dreadful is not qualified for the Emmys because they will premiere on May. Most shows that premiere mid-season or post-(normal) tv season are not qualified because studios & networks send in their For Your Consideration nominees around March/April -sometimes as early as January. It goes through a complicated process before the final nominees are announced during July/August. It is a bit unfair for Showtime to place Penny Dreadful on a peculiar/tricky premiere date considering it’s their best bet aside from their usual fare like Californication, Homeland and Masters of Sex BUT Penny Dreadful COULD STILL qualify for other award giving bodies so there’s still hope. If Penny Dreadful gets renewed for another season, Showtime should fix the next season’s premiere if it wants to be recognized more.

    I just want people to see her as an actress and not as a celebrity, because her attitute is anything but celeb. I think 300 put her on the map finally, but I hope to see her back into indie films again, I’m not again blockbusters, but blockbusters are mainly pure entertainment and some hotties on the screen. I think she has a lot to give as an actress and honestly would be a pitty to see such talent wasted.

  • spot
    Posted on March 20, 2014

    @dandy candy My thoughts exactly. I personally see signing up for both 300:RoaE and Sin City: ADTKF is more of a career strategy than actually her wanting to do blockbusters. These two movies are basically mindless testosterone entertainment (not to undermine the comic book fans) but I’m so glad that she basically upped the level of these popcorn blockbusters and it just goes to show how immense her talent is. As you said, these movies has finally put her on the map, that she could actually carry a movie on her own and this is what studios and producers are looking for. With this progress and name & audience recognition, she has more access to better script, co-workers and production. She just doesn’t have to hustle more to get her hands on meatier roles and I think this is the most positive thing to come out of these latest ventures.

    @johnny No, you were not misunderstood. I completely got what you meant and I appreciate that you and everybody else are putting your two cents in a more civil and intellectual level (see this is what makes us Eva fans cool :D ). As for Camelot, yeah it was really painful to watch. I literally just stuck to it because I wanted to see and understand her performance but I was shaking my head 80% of the time or whenever she was off screen. Arsène Lupin is just basically a movie we wished we didn’t have to deal with but we did because it falls under #ThingsYouDoForYourFaves LMAO :lol:

    I enjoyed Franklyn a lot and you are right. I also thought Gerald McMorrow was too ambitious for his own good.

    I enjoyed Cracks and Womb immensely because in Cracks, she performs with sublime over the topness required for her character and I love how we see both sides of her despite knowing what’s really underneath and yet we still haven’t seen or know everything. In Womb, you see and feel the subtlety of her acting with or without the influence of the setting or the overall feel of the film. I’ve once had a dinner with a few friends and we came to a point wherein they asked me what I like most about Eva’s acting (these are people who are in the entertainment industry and they are well aware that I have followed her career from the start; they are frustrated with what they call “the status of her career” lol) and I told them that I admire her complete surrender to a character. I liked how she consistently just raises the level of her performances (and films consequently) and how she always brings a theatrical quality to all of her performances and how she portrays her characters in a way wherein there’s an inner battle of good and evil. But yeah, a normal character like Susan in Perfect Sense would not hurt at all. Haha :)

    With political thriller, I meant something off the books. Perhaps even in the vain of All The King’s Men, The Interpreter, The Manchurian Candidate, Ides of March or Argo. Actually, it doesn’t have to be a political thriller. It could be a financial movie or just something modern with a broad familiar plot and atmosphere. Robin Wright in House of Cards is absolutely amazing and I would flip if she could get a role as complex in the future! I did see Arbitrage and she was attached to do it when Al Pacino was still attached to play Richard Gere’s character. It was never revealed though (correct me if I’m wrong) if she was suppose to play Brit Marling or Laetitia Casta’s character. I wish it would’ve been Brit Marling’s character because Laetitia’s is your usual femme fatale role.

    Posted on March 20, 2014

    I actually think her most underrated films are actually the best ones, but that means almost all the films she’s been into. I really enjoyed the dreamers, womb, franklyn, perfect sense and franklyn and they all are TOTALLY underrated, can’t wait for white bird in a blizzard!

    I completely agree with you dandy candy. She shines more in her smaller films.

  • Johnny
    Posted on March 21, 2014

    dandy candy for me she has excelled in everything so far, but of course I’m a bit biased lol. Actually the reviews she got for her parts in blockbusters like Casino Royale, Kingdom of Heaven, Dark Shadows and 300, were more glowing than in indie movies.

    spot, I really need to see Cracks again. Like you said, probably because she has a theatrical background, she brings that bit of over the topness to her movies, for me that’s what elevates her performance, because you can tell she is having fun and really bringing her all to the role. Yet, I began to notice that more since Cracks, I think in her previous roles she gave a more subtle and subdued performance, like in Casino Royale or a more innocent approach, like in the The Dreamers. Probably because, and apart from Perfect Sense, she began accepting crazier roles ahah.

    I would also love to see her in a bleak contemporary thriller, well she still has many genres to explore, and after this femme fatale phase I’m sure she will surprise us with a very different movie ;)
    As for Arbitrage, I’m pretty sure she was up for the art dealer role, the one that eventually went for Laetitia Casta. I also think that Brit Marling (amazing actress by the way) was already on board before Eva dropped out.

    The only movie I really felt Eva really should have done was Mr. Nobody; I really like those kind of strange dystopian/alternate reality/sci.fi movies, and the it was amazing. I think she was up for the part that Diane Kruger (who did a good job) eventually played, not a very complex role, but pretty different from what she has played so far. I think she dropped out because of Franklyn, which, although it isn’t a cult hit as big as Mr.Nobody, still gave her a more complex part to portray and ended up to be just as amazing as Mr.Nobody, in my opinion.

    I have no doubt that you could do a better job than her present stylist. She is such a beautiful woman and is really frustrating to see her dressed like this.

  • Antigonus
    Posted on March 28, 2014

    @daphne a bit harsh. I think she’s inclined to experiment a bit more in her dress than other actresses, who stick rigidly to formulas laid down by stylists. She takes risks. I thought she looked amazing in her Perfect Sense dress and her 300 dress. @johnny I wonder if people place too much emphasis on her ‘theatrical background’? Lots of actors/actresses do stage work early on and by her own account she didn’t do it for that long and disliked much of it. That said I don’t know whether classical French theatre requires more deliberate ‘theatrics’ than modern theatre.

  • Daphne
    Posted on March 28, 2014

  • Antigonus
    Posted on March 28, 2014

    @daphne I wasn’t being very serious! I suppose I could have put an emoji after the first line to temper its tone – if I could stomach them. She is sporadically targeted by the ‘fashion police’, who have to pick on someone and who like their stars drearily uniform. But I’m a scruffy male, so I clearly lack awareness of the finer nuances of fashion! How does it work? Would an actress at her level have a ‘stylist’ on retainer, would her ‘management’/talent agency have a say? Who pays for it? would the studio pay for it at the big premieres? I always got the impression that she made most of her own choices, but clearly if she’s wearing designer dresses that cost five or ten grand she’s not buying them off the rack in Topshop. There must be an arrangement between the designers and her management? Forgive my ignorance!

  • G
    Posted on March 28, 2014

    @daphne Thank you for the kind words. I knew you were joking and you are definitely entitled to your own opinion about the way she dresses or dressed here. I personally think that her stylist (and she herself -of course) are already doing a good job but I’d definitely be happy to work with her if she wants me too (though I feel like I am not worthy!) :D

    @johnny and @antigonus I think the theatrical thing comes out more with how she translates well to the big and small screen. Her acting methods clearly shows her theatrical background. The way she delivers her lines, her movements, her understanding of the plot and character depth and timing speaks volumes on this. I think she has that consciousness in her acting that’s why it’s so easy to pinpoint and see that she acts with all devices she’s provided with whether with subtlely or full force.

    If it’s okay, I’ll give an insight on how styling works so people could be enlightened and understand it better….

    1) Eva is well-loved and respected within the LEGIT fashion community. I know because I’m a member of said community and because the actual people who loves her style 80% of the time are actual people who works for the industry or/are very passionate about fashion and imaging. There’s a common misunderstanding about said “Fashion Police”. Remember that most of these shows and magazines are aired or published in the USA and they cater to a specific audience (mostly Middle America) to be able to sell. People or celebrities like Eva who sees and uses fashion as an art form or certain medium have little to no chance in winning or getting positive feedback because they are beyond the normal and grasp of the “common people” (see Tilda Swinton). I never listen to these so-called fashion police because they ALWAYS pick the most basic looks and they always pick the same people/who’s hot.

    2) Styling is beyond handing a celebrity a gown or suit and fixing their hair and make up. A lot of thought process comes with it. A lot of phone calls, email exchanges, text messages, Skype conferences and even deals happen in the background before a stylist arrives to a certain look. Sometimes it takes months of planning (these applies for big events such as the Academy Awards). It all seems ridiculous but it is part of a billion dollar industry and it’s part of how the PR-fashion-advertising machinery works. It’s no joke and some people (I’ve seen and known some of them) have lost their job because they missed a call or delivery or worst: delivered the wrong gown/suit/SIZE/etc. (whether to a different person/celeb or not). Impossible not to respect these people!

    To answer antigonus’ questions:

    a) How does it work?
    It’s complicated to explain this but basically, a stylist (depending on how established the stylist is) makes (or not -if said stylist has her “go to” designer or whether the stylist has first dibs on certain collections -he/she will just go straight to it and pick) phone calls and then there’s consultations with the actor/actress then there are fittings (fittings could happen right up to a few hours or minutes before the event) and once the outfits are picked, the stylist works with the actor/actress, make-up artist and hairdresser…it could get more complicated and more people could be involved depending if you’re Lady Gaga or someone more eccentric. Lol

    b) Would an actress at her level have a ‘stylist’ on retainer?
    Eva is at the level wherein in she can pick and choose her stylist and set her foot down if she doesn’t agree with a certain look or piece. She doesn’t seem like the type who’d have someone on retainer since she barely makes public appearances. If she has her own stylist, I’d certainly want to know who he or she is :)

    c) Would her ‘management’/talent agency have a say?
    On most cases yes but based on her previous interviews, she seems to make up most of the decisions and wear clothes as she likes and feels them. She did say before that she likes to dress up on the red carpet so there’s that. As for her management/agency, it’s safe to say that she has a close relationship with them right? I mean, we always see Angharad around her during public events.

    d) Who pays for it?
    You mean the public event ensembles right? Most of the time, the clothes, shoes, jewelries are borrowed or loaned. Sometimes they are given by the designers (if the actor/actress has a good or close relationship with the designer ala Diane Kruger and Karl Lagerfeld and Sarah Jessica Parker with basically every single designer lol). It also depends if the actor/actress is the brand ambassador or “face” of the house (ala Marion Cotillard for Dior, Keira Knightley for Chanel). The clothes are usually customized and given (and it’s REQUIRED for them to wear the brand…IT’S ON THE CONTRACT!) to be worn in public events because it is seen as part of advertising (ala Jennifer Lawrence for Dior…even if Dior, as a brand, doesn’t fit her LMAO).

    d) Would the studio pay for it at the big premieres?
    Three ways could happen: 1) The studio pays for it (most of the time, they pay for the rental lol, if they are being nice, they pay for it and give it to you); 2) Actor/Actress buys it themselves (ala Hayden Panitierre in this year’s Golden Globes with her Tom Ford gown that she bought from his flagship store); 3) Stylist borrows it (actually the better and common term is LOAN).

    As for the arrangements, yes there are different kinds of arrangements and I’m not gonna get into it since there’s just so many kinds but agencies like CAA, WME and UTA (who represents Eva) have industry arrangements or even have their own packages when it comes to this.

    If there are any more questions on this subject, I’d be happy to answer them :)

  • Daphne
    Posted on March 28, 2014

    Well, most of the actresses have a stylist. And most of the time there is an agreement or a contract between a designer and an actress. Do you remember when Eva had a contract with Dior to promote their perfume? Well most of the clothes that she worn (at premiers and other events) during that time were from Dior ( with few exceptions). Some actresses buy the dresses they are going to wear, but that’s very rare.

    Anyway, after the whole Galliano fiasco, Eva stopped( or her contract ended it) wearing clothes from Dior and moved to Tom Ford. I think that Eva says ‘ I want to be risky’ ( or I don’t know) or talks with her stylist what she would like to wear at the premier, but it’s the stylist that puts all the pieces together: dress, make-up, shoes, hairstyle etc. . I believe Eva does have a say in her whole look, but I don’t think she goes on her own to buy or to choose the clothes. The stylist does that for her. But also i could be wrong. I remember Eva said something about her stylist in a magazine ( L’Express Style 2011?).

    As for me I don’t really care about the fashion police and neither should you. This whole thing who is best dressed and who is not, it’s just kiss assing at its best. And as a woman I advise you to not waste your money on fashion magazines. They are garbage and racist.

    @Daphne @G (AKA The Stylist Formerly Known As Spot) Thanks for those detailed responses! I didn’t realise the Galliano’s ostracism may have have prompted the move from Dior the nuances of designer politics…. To be honest I didn’t pick up on the fact she had stopped wearing Dior, such is my ignorance! She spoke out in his defence at the time, which was a decent thing to do…possibly the move was prompted by her management? I did notice she turned up with Tom Ford at the BAFTAs around the same time she was wearing his dresses. Even with my limited understanding I agree about the American ‘fashion police’, obsessed with enforcing the same generic style, everyone is tanned with uber-white teeth, similar dresses (generally red) and the same fake smile. I was forced to watch ten minutes of E!’s idiotic commentary on the Oscars red carpet before I passed out from boredom. How much would the dresses actually cost?

    It depends….For example this McQueen dress h ttp://www.alexandermcqueen.com/ro/alexandermcqueen/mini-dress_cod34422990ri.html costs around 3000 euros. If it is a gown it’s pretty expensive. And if it has swarovski crystals and other stuff, it’s so expensive that even looking at her will cost you.

    The thing with Galliano is that he fucked up big time. I get it he was drunk when he said those things but that’s not an excuse. It’s nice that Eva stood up for him, but ….. I don’t know. If Galliano got himself into this mess, let HIM get out of it.
    I understand that they guy needed help and I’m happy to hear he is well. He is a talented designer. It breaks my heart to see what’s happening now at Dior. But I don’t know if he’ll ever come back….

    DEAD @ “The Stylist Formerly Known As Spot”. Let’s just stay with G from now on. You’re welcome. I’d be happy to respond to any fashion/tv/film or PR inquiries.

    daphne is right about the arrangements and contracts. Eva did have a contract with Dior for Midnight Poison. She also had one with Armani (partly packaged with The Dreamers), Breil, Lancome, etc.. I was told that John (Galliano) rallied for Eva to be the face which I am not surprised about since Eva embodies the Dior woman. Frankly, I still live for her Dior and McQueen moments because they are literally ICONIC in every sense of the word. We don’t necessarily know if her contract ended right around the time the Galliano fiasco happened or if there was a fall out between her, Dior or LVMH or if it was a conscious decision on her part and her management. However, one thing for sure is that Eva is still in good terms with John considering that she defended him and it just goes to show that they are still friends. I have a lot of feelings and opinion about the whole Galliano fiasco but there is no doubt that he is a true artist and innovator (and one of the last living legends of fashion) and I very much would welcome if she and John collaborates together again.

    As for Tom Ford, I know for a fact that Tom adores her so I wasn’t surprised when she started wearing Tom’s clothes. She embodies the new Tom Ford woman (Post-Gucci Tom Ford) and I was actually hoping that she would turn up and walk for one of his private shows but ALAS! Lol. Only Eva or women with the same confidence and grace like her can carry Tom’s designs so I’m down with her wearing his designs.

    I can’t remember if she spoke about her stylist in L’Express Style. I should look it up again, but I think she spoke of her hairstylist and make-up artist before who are both friends of hers who also worked in Kingdom of Heaven or Cracks (correct me if I’m wrong). I think they also traveled with her when she went to Shanghai?

    How much would the dresses actually cost?
    Red carpet gowns usually ranges from US$7,000 to up to $80,000, depending if it’s from RTW, Cruise or Haute Couture collection and of course, depending which designer or house the gown comes from. Eva usually wears Haute Couture on the red carpet so they usually fetch around US$15,000 to $60,000 (or more)

    If we are talking McQueen, if also depends if it’s a McQueen designed by Lee himself or like what you posted, designed by his successor Sarah Burton. I hear original McQueens designed by Lee are already 10x worth their original price.

    I wonder if she and Rose still works together? I’ve noticed some shifts in her styling… Also, I wonder if it was Rose who was responsible for the Givenchy Haute Couture gown that she wore when she attended the Oscars.

    Not gonna comment on Galliano since that’s a pretty complicated issue but he has made amends and I really appreciate it. I have personally forgiven him and I really hope he gets back on his feet ASAP. I need him to help save fashion!

    Dior is just tragic right now. After Galliano was fired, it was just downhill from there. Raf Simons is really doing his best but I find that his own aesthetic is a mismatch with Dior. I adore Raf though.

    I don’t know…I just don’t like Dior now. The clothes are boring. And Jennifer Lawrence being the face of it doesn’t help either. I mean why h ttp://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2014/01/13/jennifer-lawrence-christian-dior-couture-2014-golden-globe-awards/ ??????????

    The thing that bothered during the Galliano scandal was that some people were making excuses for him. It’s not the first or the last time somebody said something antisemitic but he did something bad, let him see the consequences of his actions. I would love to see him back at Dior, but the world is full with hypocrites.

    With or without Galliano, Jennifer Lawrence for Dior is just all kinds of wrong and tragic. She just doesn’t have that factor and elegance to carry and wear such iconic house. Raf’s aesthetic is just so different for Dior. In my honest opinion, they should have gone for Christian Lacroix. He’s entirely unique on his own and yet he is almost an equal to Galliano’s aesthetic. They should’ve given him the honor and we would have all been spared from the devoid that Galliano left in the house.

    There was no excuse for what Galliano did but there were factors about that specific incident that we should all consider and factors we don’t know. I’m not defending him whatsoever, He really did have to go after that. However, he had made amends and the Jewish community and leaders has even said that he has done everything to correct his wrong. Sure, it may still be there in him but what about second chances? How could he prove himself again if we won’t give him a chance. It’s a gray area surely but I just feel like a talent and genius like him should not be shut down because of a mistake he’s done -and considering that he’s been doing everything to correct them. I feel like there’s zero chance that he’ll be back in Dior but I’d surely want him to helm over his namesake brand again.

    Anyway, back on topic. Let me reminisce the GLAM ICONIC Eva-Galliano collaborations:

    Of course he deserves a second chance. He isn’t evil, but I think there is something dark in us all, that makes us unhuman. And sometimes it’s hard to control it, but when we snap we don’t really think at consequences, but only at making that person suffer, even if we don’t realise that we are destroying ourselves. I don’t know if that makes sense.

    I’ve listened his interview with Charlie Rose and he really looked like he is sorry and it’s ready to start again.

    I will always associate Dior with Galliano. I don’t know….I have no feelings regarding Jennifer Lawrence. She is just blank to me. It’s sad now that designer have to make a contract with a famous actress, even if she doesn’t have the attitude or the culture (I don’t know how to say it), in order to make the clothes sell (which is stupid because Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t influence me at all). I loved the time Eva had a contract with Dior. That pink dress and that dress she wore at the Cannes( the golden compass premier) are breathtaking.

    I don’t really understand the whole fashion world, all I know is that I loved how risky Eva was in the red carpet around the time Casino Royale and The Golden Compass premiered. I still remember that awesome long dress she wore in Cannes, and even her pink geisha dress, which from what I remember, received a lot of criticism. I loved when she was named one of the worst dressed, and did nothing to change her style. I also don’t care about the so-called fashion police, I always think it’s better to different rather than generic. In fact Eva is the only actress that I bother to look up the designer of the dress she is wearing in the red carpet, even though my knowledge of fashion designers is very scant. She is still amazing on the red carpet, but now has been shying away from it, probably due to the fact that she’s working more. Thank you g and daphne for the insight on the fashion world, I had no idea how it worked, and I do feel more enlightened now :)
    So her path has been Armani (?), Dior, Tom Ford, is that right?

    About the Galliano thing, I think it’s time for everyone to let to go, like daphne said we all have moments when our brain kind of shuts down and we just say stupid things that we actually don’t feel or mean. He was clearly in a bad place in his life when he said that hurtful remarks.

    On a side note, I think Jennifer Lawrence is probably the most overrated actress working right now. Much like Anne Hathaway was a couple of years ago. They are good actresses, just not as good as Hollywood is trying to make everyone believe. I don’t really like when Hollywood forces the audience into fancying an actor/actress, actually for me it has the opposite effect lol.

    There are many factors as to why Eva seems to have toned down her red carpet looks lately. Probably because she changed her stylist or she’s putting variety into her looks now, which I like because it makes her unpredictable and thus makes me anticipate to see what she’ll be wearing.

    Eva does have the coolest admirers..I genuanly enjoyed reading this comments mainly cuz its everything I’d been thinkint, and.johnny you’re right..jennifer lawrence is overrated.

    Posted on March 30, 2014

    Thanks ausrotten! I agree that she has the coolest and most respectful genuine fans. Add me on those who thinks Jennifer Lawrence is overrated (on all levels).

    PS: @johnny Yes her main public events fashion path has basically been Armani, Dior, McQueen, Givenchy and Tom Ford. Most (all movie premiere ensembles to be precise) of what she has wears to the big events are from Haute Couture Collections of said designers ;)

    This 300 Rise Of An Empire I would say is the best of its category of 2014…I would give Eva some kind of movie actress award for her work in making this endeavor possible….I’m just a fan, but I feel she earned this…
