easyJet Breaks World Record With In-Air Bard Performance to Make National Shakespeare Day a Reality

Apr 25, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The anniversary of Shakespeare's birth (and maybe death) was Wednesday, meaning people all over the world scrambled to dust off their copies of Hamlet so they could show off their Bard knowledge to unsuspecting victims. And yes, we know that there's a general haze around Shakes' exact day of birth and death, but let's just go with it. To celebrate the playwright's 450th birthday, easyJet decided to do things a little differently by putting on a Guinness World Record performance of an abridged version of his most famous works for lucky customers on a flight to Italy.

Costume Designer Judianna Makovsky Takes Us Behind-the-Scenes With Captain America

Nov 21, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

When I called Judianna Makovsky for a chat, Gary Ross happened to be on the other line — no big deal. Nominated for three Oscars, the costume designer has had a long run in the movie business without ever limiting herself to any one specific genre. Sure, she's worked with Ross several times (from 1988's Big to 2003's Seabiscuit to their most recent Peter Pan project), but that's because her decision to work on a film is hugely influenced by the people backing it.

Inside the World of Divergent: Stars Chat About Auditions, Training, Fears & Favorite Scenes

Mar 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Divergent is without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated flicks to come around since the first Hunger Games, with fans of the books practically salivating at the thought of seeing their favorite characters come to life. Sure, most people are excited to see Shailene Woodley and Theo James portray the two lovers at the heart of the story, but personally, I was more excited to see Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen play my two favorites from the book: Will and Al.

John Neyrot’s career is the envy of guys everywhere: Not only does he photograph girls in bikinis for a living, but his job also entails painting girls’ naked bodies — a few times at the Playboy Mansion, no less. Oh, and jetting off to exotic locales is also part of the job description.

Jan 27, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

Do you love The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe? So do we. Which is why we are in love with Selçuk Yilmaz's metal lion sculpture named Aslan. Okay, so maybe he didn't specifically name this larger-than-life lion after our childhood hero (since Aslan is actually Turkish for lion), but we don't care.

Dec 16, 2013  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

You don't have to be an art expert to appreciate something beautiful, whether it be a painting or a sculpture — you just have to feel it. Now, that may sound cheesy, but it's true.
