Platée Replayed

Baroque Hijinks and a Karl Lagerfeld Doppelgänger in a Couture Comic Opera Revival

First performed in Versailles in 1745, today's adaption of Jean-Philippe Rameau's Platée by Robert Carsen sees fashion industry figureheads playfully transfigured into haughty gods, with Olympus reimagined as Chanel’s headquarters. “Karl Lagerfeld is an absolutely suitable Jupiter,” says Felipe Sanguinetti, the filmmaker behind this backstage view of Carsen’s riotous production, which also features glimpses of Anna Wintour and Hamish Bowles doubles. On stage Lagerfeld as Jupiter, played by Edwin Crossley-Mercer, runs into domestic difficulty at the hands of his jealous wife Juno, a tweed-clad Coco Chanel. The king of the gods goes on to trick Platée—an overweight fashionista—into a doomed romance. Lady Gaga even puts in an appearance as ‘La Folie’ [Madness]. “Each opera I film or photograph by Robert’s side is a masterclass in how to take a story that was imagined in the mind and turn it into a tangible reality,” says Sanguinetti.

Platée at Opera Comique, Paris runs to March 30; a concert version at Lincoln Center, New York launches April 2. -via

Video Premiere Shakira - Empire

Shakira has released her 2nd video single "Empire" off her latest self titled release and its a beautifully shot video from creative directors Darren Craig, Jonathan Craven and Jeff Nicholas.

We are loving the video and single and we hope it will catapult the track where the debut single failed to catch an audience.

MDNA Skin Care

If you ever dreamed of having Madonna's flawless skin well heres your chance cause shes debuting a skincare line!

The first promo video for Madonna‘s new skincare line MDNA Skin is here, and it’s very… Madonna.

“Having good skin is important to me…” the 55-year-old popstar purrs in a voice over, “but so are other things.” ‘Other things’ that, judging from the commercial, may or may not include lying on a floor while people walk by her, admiring herself in a mirror, doing that “Itsby Bitsy Spider” finger crawling thing on her own leg, saying “shhhh…,” sitting in a bathtub while holding a cane, exposing her crotch… and mumbling absolute nonsense.

“Creation… your body smells of honey from the comb,” she coos. “Essence… your amber silken skin smells of your mind. Alchemy… I’ve spent hours on it… months on it… years on it…”


Sadly, most of us won’t be able to experience firsthand what the fragrance of our own mind smells like, since, according to US Weekly, the three-product MDNA line is currently only available in Japan. So if every middle aged person in Tokyo suddenly starts walking around with ridiculously taut skin and full cheeks, we’ll know who’s to blame.-via
