If you've been logging time on any shopping sites (who hasn't?) or doing some awards-season-stalking, you may have noticed that the humble clutch — everyone's go-to evening bag — is taking a little walk on the dramatic side. Gone (temporarily) are the days of simple envelope clutches that complement your outfit; 3D clutches are all about making a statement of their own — the quirkier, cooler and brighter, the better! We loved Rosario Dawson's beautiful silver goodie at the Golden Globes, but if you like yours a little bolder, look to Helena Bonham Carter for style inspiration (yes, seriously). Fruit take your fancy? We've got you covered, too. click through to see our top 10 picks!
Emily Blunt and Helena Bonham Carter continued their awards season fun at the London Critics' Circle Film Awards held at the MayFair Hotel last night. Emily was nominated for British actress of the year but lost to Andrea Riseborough, who was recognised for her work in Shadow Dancer. Helena was this year's recipient of the Dilys Powell Award for excellence in film, which honoured her career filled with a variety of interesting characters. Helena's Les Misérables onscreen daughter, Samantha Barks, was also on hand for the event, but she lost the young British performer of the year award to The Impossible's Tom Holland. The big winner of the night was French film Amour, which picked up film and screenplay of the year for writer/director Michael Haneke, as well as actress of the year for Emmanuelle Riva.
The times, they are a-changin' for folks in the Wild West. The trailer for The Lone Ranger depicts a world in the process of being altered forever with the advent of the railroad. Men will no longer be at the mercy of their horses to take them to far places, and with this epic invention comes crime the likes of which people have never seen. Enter peacekeeper John Reid, aka The Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer). Guided by his sidekick, Tonto (Johnny Depp), he vows to protect his native land and keep criminals at bay.
The Lone Ranger character has been portrayed in several movies and series, but I was hoping to get a few more details about Gore Verbinski's retelling. What I can tell you is that there are bandits, ladies — specifically, Helena Bonham Carter — fast-moving trains, Johnny Depp dangerously clinging to the bottom of those fast-moving trains, and saloons. The movie comes out July 4, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
Johnny Depp arrived at the airport in Tokyo this morning, and quickly changed blazers to hit the red carpet. He and his Dark Shadows director Tim Burton were together for their latest screening, and they stopped to sign autographs for fans before debuting their eighth collaboration for Japanese fans. It's been a busy week for Johnny and Tim. They screened the picture in LA, then had an event with Johnny's costars Eva Green, Helena Bonham Carter, and Chloe Moretz in London. The Dark Shadows reviews have been mixed, but there's no denying it — Johnny's still got it.
Johnny Depp joined his Dark Shadows director Tim Burton and co-stars Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloë Moretz, Bella Heathcote and Eva Green in London yesterday evening. The group first premiered their new film Monday in LA, where Johnny also fit in a quick taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday afternoon. Johnny talked about several of his famous friends during his chat with Jimmy and even took questions from some of his many impersonators. Dark Shadows, in which Johnny plays a vampire from the 1700s trying to adapt to life in the 1970s, is his eighth collaboration with Tim Burton. Early reviews of Dark Shadows and its off-kilter mix of horror and comedy have been lukewarm, but audiences will have a chance to decide for themselves from today as it's in cinemas now.
I didn't have huge expectations for Dark Shadows, the film adaptation of the '60s drama series about a vampire, but I can still say that the trailer for the film is so not what I was expecting. Sure, the preview is painted in dreamy grey tones, as we've come to know from Tim Burton, and Johnny Depp is once again covering up his beautiful face with pale white makeup. But beyond that, there are a lot more jokes than I had anticipated, plus disco music and an all-around cartoonish vibe.
The film follows Barnabas Collins (Depp), a guy who is turned into a bloodsucker by an evil witch (Eva Green) and emerges hundreds of years later in the '70s. Comedy ensues as he rejoins his new family members, is puzzled by the TV set, and clashes with a young Chloë Moretz on the meaning of the term "stoned." There's really no better word for this preview than "wacky," but suffice it to say that it succeeded in catching my attention. Another bonus: Aussie rising star Bella Heathcote stars as Barnabas' first love.
The movie opens May 10, but check out the preview when you read more.
The 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Monday and, as usual, we'll be bringing you all the news on hair, makeup and gowns as soon as the stars start to hit the red carpet. But for now, let's take a look at some memorable beauty looks from past SAG Awards. Some are extreme, while others — like Lea Michele's tousled curls from last year — are simply lovely. Which ones are your favourite looks and which ones made you laugh out loud?

Rowling and spoke to the audience of millions watching across the globe.
