People magazine unveils best and worst-dressed lists

Britney Spears shocked us with her best impersonation of a zombie in an ill-fitting bikini — but at least she wasn’t named the world’s worst dresser.

That dubious dishonor, according to People magazine’s best- and worst-dressed issue out Friday, goes to French actress Eva Green. The mag, on newstands Friday, devotes an entire page to Green, who “seems to be aiming for a galaxy far, far away” in four different disastrous looks.

“There was a lot to choose from,” said People style editor Clarissa Cruz. “It’s not just (the dresses). It’s the crazy hair, piled-on makeup, combined with these dresses.”

On the plus side, Katie Holmes emerged from the shadow of being Mrs. Tom Cruise to make People’s best dressed list. The magazine called her look “classic.”

Captures from the Midnight Poison commercial were added to the gallery for our viewing pleasure. 🙂

If any of you make beautiful Fan Art with them, be sure to upload it to the Fan Art Archives (you can upload by yourself, but they’ll only show up once I approve your upload as a matter of security) or send them my way (but be patient if I don’t reply right away because sometimes I don’t check my emails every single day). 😉

PS: mata‘s September calendar page is already online.

And, now, the final part of Eva’s Numéro interview.

“Why do you perform mostly in English?
Jeremy Thomas, the producer of The Dreamers, incentivated me to try the casting of the Ridley Scott film, Kingdom of Heaven. Everything went with the flow of things. Then, people say that I don’t want to film in France, but it’s not true. But I’ve happened to make only five films, and only one French, Arsène Lupin.

It’s a surprising trajectory for a young Parisian woman.
The English language is quite practical because I keep a distance from myself, so performing is easier. There’s almost a robotic side that I like. That said, I’m not an inveterate fan of the United States. I have an American agent, but I don’t like Los Angeles very much, except for Venice Beach, where my boyfriend lives. There’s something tense about this city, a way of walking around without really meeting others that stresses me. In general, I only spend two weeks there to go to castings, meet studio bosses… I’m not one to make conversation. I had a bourgeois education, I’m polite, but the blah blah blah…

Continuing with the Numéro translation… Still more to come…

“Bernardo Bertolucci initiated you in the cinema.
When we first met, he asked me to talk about sexuality and politics, the themes of his film. He was very intimidating, but he put me at ease at the same time. In fact, he manipulates people, but without really manipulating them, it’s almost scary! He has undoubtely changed since The Last Tango in Paris. I was waiting for an authoritary personality, and I discovered a man who’s very free spirited.

Eva is also in the September issue of the French mag Numéro with a brand new interview and a brand new photoshoot inspired in the 40s which is an era that she loves.

You can have a preview of her session thanks to Dustcakeboy.

Bigger scans will be coming soon!

I started translating some of the interview highlights. There’s more to come…

“Numéro: Can one be a movie star these days without a contract with a big luxury brand? An actress must also be a fashion icon?
EG: If La Redoute had offered me a collaboration, maybe I’d have said no. But we don’t say no to Dior and Galliano: what John does is sophisticated and cinematographical. It has nothing to do with the idea of having your face everywhere.
