Who Made It To Art Basel This Year?

December 8, 2008 at 8:45 AM | by | Comment (1)

Pamela Anderson arrives at Art Basel in Miami Beach with photographer friend David LaChapelle in a T-shirt and no pants. LaChapelle shot Anderson for a film featured in the Elton John "Red Piano" concerts in Las Vegas; this year in Art Basel he presented an exhibit called "Jesus Is My Homeboy."

Cityfile dismissed the celebrity guests at Art Basel as "decoration," bearing no significance to how the festival's really doing at what it's supposed to do--sell art. If so, stars were still willing to show up and look good for the cameras. Beyonce and Jay-Z took in a few galleries--furnishing one of their places together, perhaps? And Kirsten Dunst took a bunch of girlfriends to South Beach with her, before ditching them at a party to hit on Tom Brady. We had no idea he was into art!

Even The New York Times got in on the act by following their version of a tabloid star to the show, musician Malcolm McLaren, who presented his own video project to an adoring crowd. Another star presenter who made sure to be seen: Marilyn Manson, who showed up his bloody paintings and his new post-Evan Rachel Wood girlfriend.

Movie Set Travel: Marie Antoinette

Where: France
October 20, 2006 at 3:03 PM | by | Comments (0)


Sofia Coppola's directorial efforts return to the big screen today in the long-awaited (and much written about) Marie Antoinette.

Kirsten Dunst plays Marie, France's ill-fated queen in this biopic that covers everything from her forced marriage to Louis XVI, to her social rejection by royal family members, to her (ewww) beheading, and everything in between.

As the film was shot all over some of the most beautiful parts of France, today we offer you some of the country's must-do's and see's. Pack your corset and hit the road!

Where To See a Castle:
Chateau de Chantilly
See where many of the actual castle scenes were shot at this amazing chateau originally built in the 1500s in Chantilly. Owned by the Institut de France, it's now open to the public for your visiting pleasure. Features include one of the world's most impressive art galleries, libraries (a copy of the Gutenberg bible is here), and gardens. And yes, you might recognize it previously from the Bond flick, A View to a Kill.

Where To Pretend To Check In:
Hotel du Soubise
Ok, so you can't really stay here as a guest (it's now a historic site), but this former city palace was once the home of the Prince and Princess de Soubise, and is right in Paris. The prince arranged for a complete remodeling in 1704, and the building now houses the Museum of French History. Close your eyes and imagine snoozing here while your multitudes of attendants wait in the hallway outside.

Where To Eat:
Le Francois
Head to Fontainebleau and dine at Le Francois on Chef Bernard Crogiez's cuisine, which has been heralded. Of course, the fare is classic French: hare, duck, partridge, snails--you get the picture. The terrace is a great choice for a decadent lunch on a nice day.
