When the teaser trailer for Walt Disney Pictures’ Aladdin debuted in October. Hence, fans got a first look at Mena Massoud as the titular street rat. The sneak peek showed him entering the Cave of Wonders and finding a magical lamp. Thus, moments before he’d finally meet Genie (Will Smith).
At the time, fans didn’t get to see Genie—or Naomi Scott’s Princess Jasmine.
After months of anticipation, their wishes were finally granted this morning. Therefore, as the acting trio appears on the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s Dec. 28, 2018/Jan. 4, 2019 issue. Smith, in particular, had big shoes to fill. Hence, as the late Robin Williams originated the role when the animated film was released in 1992. “Whenever you’re doing things that are iconic, it’s always terrifying,” he admits. “The question is always: Where was there meat left on the bone? Robin didn’t leave a lot of meat on the bone with the character.”. But, as director Guy Ritchie explains, “The great thing about the role of the Genie. Therefore, is that it’s essentially a hyperbole for who that individual actor is. So it’s a wonderful platform and tapestry for an actor to fill his boots on.”
A Big Shoes To Fill
Since Williams “infused the character with a timeless version of himself,” Smith decided to follow suit. “I started to feel confident that I could deliver something that was an homage to Robin Williams. But, musically different. Just the flavor of the character would be different enough. And unique enough that it would be in a different lane. Thus, versus trying to compete.” And so, his take on the character will pull from his oeuvre. “I think it’ll stand out as unique even in the Disney world,” Smith says. “There hasn’t been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history.”
Ritchie is still working out the special effects for Genie, so the image fans see on the magazine’s cover likely won’t be what they see onscreen. “I wanted a muscular 1970s dad,” the director says. “He was big enough to feel like a force—not so muscular that he looked like he was counting his calories, but formidable enough to look like you knew when he was in the room.”
The Casting Process
Massoud and Scott won their roles after an exhaustive global casting call. But even after they were hired, they had to work overtime to do their characters justice. “The singing and dancing I had to really train and put in time for,” the actor explains, “as I’m predominantly an actor first.”
For the live-action remake (hitting theaters May 24, 2019), Ritchie wanted to ensure Jasmine was “a more rounded character and maybe not being such a stereotype of the time.” It’s a sentiment Scott, a lifelong fan of the original, appreciated. “Jasmine’s main objective at the beginning is to really protect her people and to do right by them,” she says. “She definitely isn’t a finished article at the beginning of the movie, but she has this beautiful arc and progression…”
Rest assured, Ritchie has plenty of surprises in store.
Bike Short Is The New Trend In Town
Emily Ratajkowski, Kylie Jenner, and influencers as far as the eye can see. Hence, they are ditching their leggings for skin-tight, leg-revealing bike shorts. Yes, you can totally do it, too.
High-waist, sculpting, and can beat the summer heat? It’s no surprise that bike shorts are taking over our Instagram feeds. For those of you still having a hard time giving in to this major fashion trend. Thus, think about it: They’re just like your go-to leggings. But, with more leg showing.
Bike shorts dominated the runways this past year with Bella Hadid strutting at Fendi’s spring/summer 2019 show. Thus, wearing bike shorts with a utilitarian top and accessories. Marine Serre kept them sporty with cool jackets and monochrome styling. Also, Acne Studios and LaQuan Smith made them appropriate for a night out. Thus, with bra and leather tops accented with edgy jewelry.
But they’re not a new trend. In the ’80s, icons Princess Diana and Madonna wore these shorts with oversized crewnecks and windbreakers to the gym. Now, fashion’s It Girls of 2019 are revamping the short and styling them with everything from blazers and chain belts.
The bike short is officially no longer just for the gym. And to prove that you can work this trend into your own wardrobe. Also, we’ve pulled three ways to style bike shorts with items you’re likely to already own. Go ahead, don’t be afraid.
Sporty, But Skips The Gym
Endorphins make you happy. But, working out is a pain. Know what else makes us just as happy? A new outfit. So, you don’t need to be heading to a new HIIT workout to enjoy the sporty casualness. Thus, the OG bike short gets this year! Swap the OG bike shorts pairing top. Also, the ’80s windbreaker, for cropped hoodies and shoulder bags. Take inspiration from Emily Ratajkowski and influencer Nadia Aboulhosn. Hence, by throwing on a cropped, long-sleeve top with your joggers, some trendy sunglasses, a small handbag. Also, skip their kicks for of-the-moment Tevas.
Leave your jean shorts at home. Hence, Vintage Levi’s will never go out of style. But, your favorite pair may become your backup option after wearing a bike shorts out on the town. Thus, Stylist Emili Sindlev and model Gizele Oliveira show how it’s done. Hence, by wearing their sleek black bike shorts with graphic tees, chain accessories, handbags, and strappy sandals. Hence, everything you normally would wear for a night out with your jean shorts. An easy switch that’s super sassy and ridiculously comfy.
Business on Top
Unexpected combinations are always the best. So, that’s why we love the chic combo of bike shorts with a blazer. Thus, use it as a jacket to layer and add volume above the waist while keeping things streamlined. Also, simple below, as shown on influencer Nnenna Echem. So, Dress things up by skipping the top underneath and wear the blazer as a shirt. Also, with a waist bag to give an hourglass shape a la Kylie Jenner. It’s a no-fuss layering piece you undoubtedly already own, perfect for days when the weather can’t make up its mind.
10 Best Dressed Celebrities At 2019 Met Gala
This year, Met Gala hosts decided to have a rather bizarre theme. The theme, “Camp: A Note In Fashion” was greeted by the fashion industry with a slight head shake. Many believe attendees would either miss the theme entirely or couldn’t live up to it. Fortunately, there is nothing to worry about. Celebrities, with the help of their stylists, proven to be worth or this year’s theme. Sure the interpretation varies greatly. But, this year’s pink carpet yielded even something better than just accuracy. Attendees decided to come up with a fashion that has a sense of mischief, experimentation, and ultimately, pure joy. Some celebrities below even took the theme to the next level.
Wearing a collection from Christian Siriano, the actress’ dress is an absolute visual feast. From head to toe, Moane’s dress is very eye pleasant to watch. His hat resembles the Mad Hatter’s one, while her dress is very Picasso-esque one. Not to mention peepers on the boob.
Wearing pink, floor-length dress by Moschino, the singer is definitely looked like a barbie on Met Gala night. Despite being not the only who is wearing a pink princess outfit, Musgraves definitely is the one nailed the look. From the expression on her face, to the hair and makeup, to the tiny sunglasses, and to the hair dryer purse.
Leave it to the eccentric singer to dress like a Russian nesting doll of a dress. With the help of the entire village, Lady Gaga peeled her dress one by one, revealing four layers of dresses.
Apparently, inspired by Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra, the Egyptian Sun of God and Cher, the actor dressed up in all gold. But, it is not his dress that is most looked for. It was his entrance. Carried by six shirtless men on a gold litter.
Apparently, Mugler himself came out of retirement to design this “wet” look for Kim K. I must say the designer nailed it. As intended, she was photographed looking soaking wet. With such a binding corset below her dress, we must say her look is impressive.
Not sure whether it was the intention or not, but Hadid’s choice of outfit resembles Elton John’s preferences so much. Dress in a skin-clad unitard by Michael Kors, the supermodel looked perfect. Just lend her a pair of tiny sunglasses and no one can tell that’s Hadid instead of Sir Elton John.
The rapper’s dress looked like she was wrapped in a weighted blanket as she struggled to make her way up the stairs. But what is slight immobility if you can look like a glamorous cartoon villain.
We are not sure what kind of outfit is this. Whether it’s a dress, a unitard, or something else. But whatever that was, Delevigne looked stunning in the collection of Dior. Her look, somehow, reminded us of hard candy with all the rainbow colors.
Dressed in wide flair pantsuits and a cropped top by Miu-Miu, the actress looked freakishly joyful on the pink carpet. The most impressive part of her outfit, however, is her nails. Each of her fingernails had a dangly charm attached to them.
Sometimes, we forget how brilliant the actress is on a red carpet. Nyong’o also nailed the 2019 Met Gala pink carpet with her dress, a collection by Versace.
The Top 10 Most Naked Look From 2019 Billboard Music Award
A few days ago, the music industry was once more awarded their most talented figures in the Billboard Music Award. Just as any other award show, the red carpet has been one of the most anticipated section of all. All celebrities are trying their best to look good in front of the camera. For some, looking good is simply wearing the perfect dress. Others, however, dare to challenge the norm and dress with more skin to bare than necessary. From Cardi B to Taylor Swift, these celebrities are not afraid to show what they got underneath those layers.
Tay-Tay is not usually one of those celebrities who loves to bare her naked skin on an award ceremony. But for the 2019 BMA, the celebrity chose to wear ruffled purple mini with sheer paneling throughout. Not only the length of the dress is high enough, but the sheer paneling also shows the world the perfection of her body.
If it’s not unusual, then it’s not Cardi B. For the 2019 Billboard Music Award, the rapper opted for a two-pieces outfit consist of a bralette and maxi dress with a thigh-high slit. The egg-yellow colored outfit was so barely-there that some people claimed the rapper was having a wardrobe malfunction at some point during the night.
Similar to Cardi B, Hough opted for two-pieces clothing. The celebrity showed off her toned legs with hot shorts while showing off her abs with a bralette. To complete the look, Hough wore a coordinating jacket as an outer. Though we must be honest that the jacket doesn’t cover much.
As long as she doesn’t walk and stand properly with two legs straight, people would not notice anything improper about Saweeti’s dress. But, once she let one of her legs out, people started to notice the two very high slits in the full-length gown.
At first glance, there is nothing unusual about Shipka’s mini dress. It was a beautiful black and red striped dress with a chevron skirt. But, once we look at the details of the dress, we will realize that the whole dress is in a sheer-bodiced.
Holding her son as her date, Ciara looked fantastic in her full-length gown black dress. People, however, can’t help but notice that the dress has a very plunging neckline and thigh-high middle slit on the skirt. Yup, it’s open on top and the bottom.
Just like Ciara, the singer combines two of the sexiest looks into one dress. A plunging neckline and sheer dress. Despite the full-length gown, the upper part of the dress can barely cover her chest while the bottom part of her dress is slit thigh-high with some parts are in the sheer bodice.
The first notice from the singer’s dress wouldn’t be how open it is, but rather the crystal on the entire gown. Afterward, then we notice the asymmetry cut on the bottom half of the dress. The left part of the dress was cut so high, almost up to the hip line. The crystal dress itself is also rather semi see-through.
Unlike other guests, Jeffries opted out for a catsuit instead of a dress. The choice might seem safer and unattractive if it’s not for the sheer part of the suit. Instead of placing strategically in certain places, the sheer part is the entire catsuit with some bold parts are placed strategically in some intimate places.
The top part of the dress is sexy enough with a bustier bodice. Added the sheer materials, the dress is double in sexiness. Now, for the closing, add asymmetry cut for the bottom half with the short part cut exactly above the leg.
