  • Sweden's Andersson wins Golden Lion at Venice fest

    Updated: Sat, Sep 6, 2014

    VENICE, Italy (AP) — Swedish director Roy Andersson won the Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion on Saturday for his absurdist drama "A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence." That counts as a feel-good ending to a contest whose fare often grappled with war, death and depression, both emotional and economic. The festival's other avian contender, the widely praised Michael Keaton comeback movie "Birdman," went home empty-handed, but still looks set to be an awards-season contender. Andersson's series of bleakly comic vignettes — imagine Monty Python directed by Ingmar Bergman — had some critics in raptures but left others scratching their heads.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Fans of the musical "Pippin" will get a special treat starting this weekend in Denver: They'll get to see two Pippins for the price of one.

"There's a whole new dimension here. It's like being in some crazy dream. I'm just the luckiest kid on earth," Thomas said by phone from Denver. Rubinstein agreed in a separate call: "To me, the idea of the old Pippin and the new Pippin being on the same stage — I love that.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Carmen Marc Valvo has a stable of celebrities who wear his red carpet gowns, so he decided to mark his 25th anniversary in fashion with — what else? — his first menswear. And it's not just any menswear. Valvo went festive with swirls of sea blues on tight pants, teeny swim trunks and sheer shirts adorned with prints of large red flowers. "I wanted something to just really rejuvenate my spirit," he said backstage Friday before his Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week show at the Lincoln Center tents. "People have always said why don't you do menswear? I've always said no, no. I do my own shirts. I'll do my own pants, so I finally figured why not, maybe it's time. I think we need more options for our fes

    NEW YORK (AP) — Gwen Stefani, after a three-year childbearing and child-raising break, returned to New York Fashion Week on Friday, rolling out modern tribal looks that had models frolicking on a platform surrounded by a gritty urban video installation from longtime collaborator Sophie Muller.
