    Updated: Sun, May 17, 2015

    CANNES, France (AP) — The first week of the Cannes Film Festival came to an end this weekend with plenty of buzz. Natalie Portman talked about why her new film in Israel is not political, there was an honor for Jane Fonda and a big deal for Tom Ford. And then there was also Sylvester Stallone, making news outside of the festival. The Associated Press' journalists were on hand, capturing all the details: ___ ROONEY MARA TAKES TOP BILLING ON RED CARPET: Rooney Mara scored a fashion coup at the "Carol" premiere in a diaphanous white gown that upstaged her more famous co-star Cate Blanchett.

  • CANNES WATCH: Rooney Mara scores floaty white fashion coup

    Updated: Sun, May 17, 2015

    CANNES (AP) — Rooney Mara scored a fashion coup at the "Carol" premiere in a diaphanous white gown that upstaged her more famous co-star Cate Blanchett. Thirty-year-old Mara plays opposite Blanchett in the captivating lesbian drama and wowed crowds Sunday with her simple, yet elegant silk dress with delicate halter neck and white make up. Blanchett looked typically ravishing, arm in arm with director Todd Haynes. But the 46-year-old star's shoulderless bustier dress came over a tad busy with clashing blue prints and huge proportions in the train that ushers needed to help her with.

  • CANNES TREND: It's all eyes on shoulders on red carpet

    Updated: Sun, May 17, 2015

    CANNES (AP) — It's all eyes on shoulders at the Cannes Film Festival, with red-carpet stars ditching the bust in favor of accentuating the upper torso and shoulders — through embellishments or bare skin. Charlize Theron wowed crowds at the French Riviera's "Mad Max: Fury Road" premiere in a black Valentino dress with a horizontal tulle section across her shoulders. Emma Stone repeated this coup in a black Oscar de la Renta lace dress with a sheer band across the upper torso at the "Irrational Man" photo call. Rachel Weisz chanelled a similar style but in white for "The Lobster" premiere — in a Louis Vuitton gown with a sequined section that drew eyes up to her shoulders.

    NEW YORK (AP) — A guitar George Harrison played at a time when Beatlemania was taking flight has sold for nearly half a million dollars at a New York auction.

  • CANNES WATCH: Naomi Watts resplendent in feathers

    Updated: Wed, May 13, 2015

    CANNES, France (AP) — Feathers helped the Cannes Film Festival take flight on the opening-night red carpet. Naomi Watts, who appears in Gus van Sant's festival entry "The Sea of Trees," wore a powder blue gown from Elie Saab Couture's spring-summer 2015 collection, its top festooned with sequins and pearls above a flowing feathered skirt. Not to be outdone, Julianne Moore wore a silk gauze column dress by Georgio Armani Prive, adorned with aqua and black Swarovski embroidery and paired with a black feathered top. The flame-haired actress, who won Cannes' best-actress prize last year for "Maps to the Stars," offset the look with bold emerald earrings.

    THEOULE SUR MER, France (AP) — With stunning views of the French Riviera and the spatial brilliance of the famed "Bubble House" as a backdrop, Dior faced some serious competition for the best visuals at its cruise show Monday night.

    Updated: Tue, May 5, 2015

    In this photo by Ahn Young-joon, Chanel head designer Karl Lagerfeld walks the runway with South Korean model Soo Joo Park and godson Hudson Kroenig after the presentation of his 2015-2016 Chanel cruise collection in Seoul. The collection paid homage to the host country, blending modernity and tradition. "Modern, international version of a typical Korean mood, how we see it for the modern 21st century but with inspiration from the past because I love the traditional Korean clothes, materials, patterns and all that. But it had to be made in a modern way because you can get cheap copies of the real one in any market. The real antique ones nobody can touch," said Lagerfeld.

  • Rihanna in queen's garb shuts down Met Gala carpet

    Updated: Tue, May 5, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — Never let it be said that Rihanna doesn't know how to make an entrance. On a night when big stars were a dime a dozen — try George and Amal Clooney, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Cher — the pop singer still managed to pull the red carpet out from under the rest of them at the Met Gala on Monday when she swooped in wearing a fur-trimmed yellow cape with floral swirls of gold and a train so long it required three wranglers. The ensemble came with a little pink mini-dress underneath, and a sparkling tiara.

  • Beyonce shuts down the Met Gala in peekaboo Givenchy

    Updated: Mon, May 4, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — Rihanna shut down the Met Gala's red carpet in a regal yellow coat. And then came Bey. Dressed lavishly by Chinese designer Guo Pei, Rihanna clutched her fur-trim frock closed and dragged a mammoth train up the grand staircase Monday during one of fashion's biggest nights of the year. She was a latecomer, but Beyonce was even later, wearing a peekaboo custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci adorned with multicolored crystals and stones. Her high ponytail and barely there ensemble were playful counterpoints to Rihanna's swirls of royal gold and matching headpiece. (Note: No Bey-Jay-Solange elevator smackdowns like last year, as far as we know.

  • Met show uses film, fashion to explore East-West interplay

    Updated: Mon, May 4, 2015

    NEW YORK (AP) — Hollywood has long been fascinated with China. But that doesn't mean it has always represented it fully or accurately — far from it. In the new exhibit "China: Through the Looking Glass," early Hollywood — and film in general — is just one of the lenses through which the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute explores the way Chinese art and aesthetics have been interpreted by the West over the years.

  • The Latest: Keep black cats away from Baffert

    Updated: Sat, May 2, 2015

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — 9:45 p.m. And now, on to the Preakness for Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah, but trainer Bob Baffert could do without any black cats around the stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Baffert has a thing about black cats. He goes out of his way to avoid them, believing they represent the ultimate symbol of bad luck to a horse trainer. In 1998, when Real Quiet lost the Triple Crown in the last stride, a black cat crossed Baffert's path. In 2001, Point Given was on his way to the track and a black cat jumped out in front of him. Leading up to Derby week, Baffert picked up his son Bode and a black cat crossed in front of the car. "I stopped the car so fast. I hung a U-tur
