Don’t Call It a Comeback

  • Najib Benouar

Gentlemen, today we come bearing good news: Lindsay Lohan has returned to form. Interview caught up with filmmaker Richard Phillips to get an exclusive peek at his Art Basel 2012 entry: a short film harking back to the surf aesthetic of yore (Endless Summer et al) and starring one Ms. Lohan, looking as vibrant and even-keeled as ever. It’s artsy stuff, sure, but we’ll make an exception for this—especially if it means we’ll be getting more Lohan on this end of the press spectrum. It’s no Parent Trap, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.

Hedi Slimane, YSL and Why It Matters

The gentleman before you is Hedi Slimane, occasional photographer and sculptor, and (as of this morning) official creative director of Yves Saint Laurent, a post once held by Tom Ford, Stefano Pilati and, just 12 years ago, Hedi himself.

It’s big news in the capital-F Fashion world, but it should make a difference for anyone with lapels—even if you’re not keeping an eye on runway shows. So we’ve put together a quick guide to why you should care...

A quick dialogue on why Hedi Slimane matters»

The Reentry: December 19

Minor nuclear weapons power dictator and bouffant hairstyle icon Kim Jong Il has died.

So ronrey, indeed.

If it seems like the 2011 holiday season is endless this time around, that’s because 2011 has blessed/cursed us with five weekends in December, the third of which saw the Iraq War officially come to a close, Christian Bale roughed up by Chinese thugs and, in our opinion, the best Saturday Night Live in over a decade.

Oh, and Playboy’s sales apparently weren’t affected by those leaked naked Lohan pics...»
