Yesterday I noticed that Cait liked an IG pic posted by Cameron Richardson – a model-turned-actress.  Cait has interacted with her several times before on IG so I assume they are friends, being the same age, having modeled in NYC at the same time, and having moved to LA to act at about the same time.  However, what was more interesting to me is that Jon Fletcher – you know, the one who was cavorting in the sand dunes with Trashie last winter? – also commented on Cameron’s IG pic.  A little review of his IG page seems to indicate that he is close with Cameron, as he is pictured with her and her kids on more than one occasion and they interact frequently through IG, almost as if he is an uncle or godfather.  Though Jon is also an actor he hasn’t appeared in anything with Cameron (nor have either of them been in anything with Cait either).  Could just be a “small world” situation or… interesting?

Gal Gadot personally invites Israelis to see Wonder Woman - 6 May 2017

Israeli model-turned-actress Gal Gadot extended a warm personal invitation to her hometown fans to see her new movie, Wonder Woman.
In a Hebrew language Facebook and Instagram video posted on Thursday, Gal remarked “My home. My friends. My Israel. The thing that excites me the most is that you are about to see the movie. I’ve waited so long in order share this with you, and I am so happy that this day is closer than ever.”
She opened the message in English, with “Hello, Israel!” but quickly transitioned into Hebrew, saying, “You really think I’d talk to you in English?! I am so excited to invite you to watch my new movie Wonder Woman. We were really all over the world, but there is nothing that excites me more than to know that you at home will be watching the movie.”
She closed with, “So big kisses Israel, I’m crazy about you.”

Wonder Woman opens on June 2nd.
Cara Delevingne details Harvey Weinstein's attempt to force her to kiss woman in his hotel room
Cara Delevingne has come forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of attempting to coerce a sexual encounter between her and another woman in his hotel room.

The model-turned-actress, 25, had just begun her acting career when she was first contacted by Weinstein, she told reporter Yashar Ali.

“I received a call from Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media,” Delevingne, who is bisexual, recounted. After he delivered some unsolicited advice – that she would never make it as an actress in Hollywood if she were openly gay – the phone call ended.

A year or two later, the two arranged to meet in a hotel lobby with a film director. After the director left the meeting, Weinstein asked her to “stay and chat.”


Leila Khaled is rolling over in her grave.

THIS JUST IN in cultural appropriation news. Dodo Bar Or, a model/actress turned fashion designer, previews a collection at David Lynch’s Silencio in Paris last year and the fashion world goes wild.

Her collection as described by Net-a-Porter, and I quote: “creates clothes infused with cool, contemporary flair. We especially love the versatility of her printed kaftans – perfect for summer, whether in the city, by the beach or at a festival.”

Hayeti, that’s real cute. I can’t wait to see some blond skinny white girls pairing this with a feather headdress at Coachella.

“The keffiyeh has been worn by Arabs residing in in Arabia, Jordan and Iraq for over a century. During the 1960s, usage of the black and white Palestinian keffiyeh grew as Palestinian nationalism increased and the Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat adopted it as a symbol.” (Wiki)

But you keep calling it a printed kaftan… I’m going to buy a dress and show off my arabic tattoos and drape a Palestinian flag over my head and send it her way.

model/actress like Cara delevigne. she was a model turned actress

Honestly at this point I’ve answered the question and I’d rather move on than beat it to death.

When I reach Annie Clark, the 33-year-old musician who plays under the name St. Vincent, she’s in a hotel room in Toronto, nestled in bed even though it’s 4 P.M. “I'm…visiting Cara for her birthday,” she explains in the halting manner of someone who isn’t quite sure what she wants to reveal. “We went to a male strip club last night and got lots of lap dances,” she offers. “And now I’m in …” Her voice trails as she searches for the right words. “A bed. Just answering e-mails. It’s seriously sexy.”

“Cara,” of course, is Cara Delevingne, the mega-model turned actress with whom Clark has been romantically linked for months now. Since early spring, the pair have attended red-carpet events together, been paparazzi’d during bleary morning coffee runs, and appeared all over each other’s social media. And while Clark is no novice when it comes to attention—a star in the indie-rock world, she has played with everyone from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to Taylor Swift and was handpicked to perform with the surviving members of Nirvana at last year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony—the fuss over her relationship with Delevingne is of a different breed. Clark has always preferred to let her raw, emotional songs speak for themselves, avoiding questions about her sexuality and personal life in favor of discussing, say, the writing of Hilton Als or the odd names of lingerie brands. On the wings she wore for her Bazaar photo shoot, she remarks that she was going for “more Tony Kushner’s Angels in America than Victoria’s Secret. I mean, what is Victoria’s Secret anyway? What could it possibly be?”

Dating Delevingne has made it harder for Clark to preserve that level of mystique—to put it mildly. “There’s been a little bit of enigma peeled back as of late,” Clark admits. “But I have a rich life that has nothing to do with the flimflam. I know there’s a through-the-looking-glass version of myself, and I don’t feel particularly attached to that version, especially as it pertains to the public eye—it’s kind of removed from my actual life. The long and the short of it is that what people think of me is none of my business.” She then maneuvers the conversation back to her music with a polite dexterity that’s clearly old hat. “Ultimately what I make is what I want to be—it’s my offering to the world.”

Clark began performing as St. Vincent in 2006, after several years of working with acts like the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens, and quickly won critical acclaim and a cult following for her complex arrangements. With formal training from Boston’s prestigious Berklee School of Music (she attended for three years before dropping out), the Texas native can play a wide variety of instruments, often layering them on top of one another to produce a vibrant blend of sounds. She also has a reputation for her guitar-throttling, full-body performances. “Part of what happens onstage is a physical exorcism,” says Clark. “I find that I need to be—whether or not I’m onstage performing—really physically engaged with the world. I have a lot of energy, and I have to move.” Being on the road agrees with her, in that sense. “Touring does not suit everybody, but it really suits me. I haven’t been in one city for more than five days in … well, I guess I took one vacation,” she says. “Basically, it’s very rare that I’m in a city for more than three nights.”


Though Clark built a respectable fan base over the course of her first three records, it was her fourth, 2014’s St. Vincent, that vaulted her into the big leagues, earning her a Grammy for Best Alternative Album this past February. Leading up to its release, Clark dyed her curly brown hair a dusty gray, giving her pale, fairy-like features a slightly alien edge that complemented her music’s otherworldly quality. With her long, angular, Tim Burton–esque silhouette and moon-size eyes, she’s an ideal vehicle for fashion’s more abstract creations. “I like fashion. I like structure and form and color, and all those things coalesce into wearable art,” she says. “But I’m not, like, worshipful with the cult of wealth aspirations.” Clark defines herself as more of an equal opportunist when it comes to inventive outfits. “I’ve worked with stylists and worn designer clothes and had custom pieces made, which is a lot of fun. But lately I’ve been wearing this catsuit that I found when I was walking down the street in Louisville, Kentucky. There was a store that had big, bold Tupac T-shirts in the window, and I was like, ‘Oh, cool, I wonder what’s going on in there.’ I went in and found this catsuit for $34.99, and I bought it on a lark, and it’s the best thing I ever got. It’s perfect for stage.” She laughs. “You know, my tastes are pretty catholic.”

For last night’s strip club outing, Clark wore an Issey Miyake outfit with Robert Clergerie shoes, “like somebody’s weird art teacher,” she says. “I was looking through pictures, and I look like a creepy serial killer lurking in the background. Everyone else is fun, young, and flirty, and I look like Yoko Ono, which I’m not mad about.” She occasionally borrows from Delevingne’s street-punk wardrobe, but only out of necessity. “We have wildly different styles. So if I’m going to get a coffee in the morning, I’ll throw on drop-crotch sweatpants. But then I’ll go back to my all-black Japanese designers.”

Clothing may be the least of Clark’s and Delevingne’s differences. “Cara is an experientialist—more feet in the fire,” says Clark. “I’m less so. If there’s a dark room of the subconscious, I want to find it and walk around in it. Sometimes I feel very much in my head and slightly removed from the physical world,” she continues. “For example, I dance onstage, but I don’t dance for pleasure offstage. I’ll be privy to a dance club or something and just be essentially sober and watch things happen. More as a social observer, like an anthropologist. I’m not in the middle of the dance floor, you know?” She pauses. “That probably doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. But I’m having a great time.”

Having recently finished a 20-month tour, Clark will soon head to Los Angeles to work on her next album, which is still in its earliest phases. It’ll be her first long-term break from the road in about five years. “I’m looking forward to having time to build and rip it up and start again,” she says. It will also provide a respite from the spotlight, “although I don’t consider myself very famous,” she adds, bemused. “If I’m by myself, I don’t ever get paparazzi. Nobody takes pictures of me. Or if they do, it’s only as an asterisk to an asterisk—like a tangent to a tangent of pop culture. I don’t get too freaked out by it. But it’s such a bizarre experience. I don’t know where to put it yet.” A topic for her next record, perhaps.
