Best Football Films for Girly Girls

Continuing our football themed week in tribute to Sunday’s Superbowl, we have a list of football themed movies with the ladies in mind.  Yes, women can be as into the blood and guts of football as men… but if you’re more of a girly girl, here are some football movies you may enjoy…

The Blind Side
Sandra Bullock’s Oscar winning performance… and proof that blonde’s are winners
The Replacements
This movie is so funny that it’s great if you’re a football fan or not
The Game Plan
The Rock is just sexy… and I was an extra in the stadium scenes (you can’t see me but I like to pretend you can)
Varsity Blues
Yes, it’s a little cheesy, but we could all take some seduction lessons from Ali Larter and her whip cream bikini.
Jerry Maguire
The ultimate chick-flick and football themed… this is a must watch to get in the mood for the Superbowl

Silver Screen Style: Cat on Hot Tin Roof

The Superbowl is coming this weekend, and there is no reason a Starlet can’t get in in the fun.  How about some style from one of our favorite Old Hollywood movies, Cat on Hot Tin Roof.  Elizabeth Taylor is a desperate housewife trying to seduce her ex-football star husband, Paul Newman.  There is no question that they are two of the sexiest stars in all of history.  And Ms. Taylor gives a mind-blowing performance… but it’s hard to get past her fabulous fashion…

Starlet Soundtrack: Love

Starlets are always ready for the movie of their life to become a romance.  Sometimes it’s a comedy, sometimes it’s a drama… but it’s always entertaining.  So Starlets need a soundtrack for every love story.

In Love

When love goes right it can be pure happiness.  Here are some songs Starlets listen too when they are happy in love…

Check out Tattooed Heart by Ariana Grande live… and the Jessica Rabbit inspired dress…

But sometimes love goes wrong, and she needs some breakup music….

Seduction

Now there are sometimes when love goes very right and she wants music to seduce her leading man.  This requires a playlist specifically for the art of seduction…

Have a fabulous weekend, and enjoy the Grammys!

Starlet Soundtrack: Entertaining

We’ve already discussed how much Starlets love to entertain at home…. And great music is a big part of that.  You definitely want to create a playlist when planning a get together.  It can be music that goes with the theme of the event or just music that you love and think your guests will enjoy.  Some things to consider:

•Start with lively music that gets people excited about the party

•Make sure the music isn’t too loud or distracting

•End your playlist with slower music to wind down the event and signal to guests that it’s time to go

Here is Dita Von Teese’s Entertaining Playlist:

Now one thing I love to do is cook…

…and I love to listen to music and relax in the kitchen when trying new recipes for entertaining or just for everyday meals (when I have time).  For this, I have a playlist of Billie Holiday favorites.  You could also listen to Amy Winehouse (our generation’s Billie Holiday)… or if you’re cooking Italian, a little Sinatra.

Stay tuned for your Starlets in Love playlist ideas

Starlet Soundtrack: Getting Ready

It’s no secret that Starlets take a while to get ready, so sometimes they need a little motivation to keep them going.  The perfect playlist is just the trick.  It’s a trick used by Dita Von Teese, who says in her advice column on xojane.com

“If you’re the kind of girl who loses track of time, try creating a playlist that runs a certain amount of time so that you can notice when you should be getting out the door. I like to put a ridiculous song at the end of my playlist so it’s my obvious cue to hurry up!”

Here are some song ideas (new and old) to get you excited about getting ready to go out…

Also, when getting ready for a Burlesque performance, Dita listens to some Beastie Boys.  She tweeted…

Sad to hear of the passing of Adam from The Beastie Boys, they’re prominent on my “gettin’ ready for a show” playlist. Rest in peace. — Dita Von Teese (@DitaVonTeese) May 4, 2012

Now sometimes a Starlet needs to relax in a warm bath. For this she tends to listen to classical.  Usually music from the opera Carmen, the ballet Swan Lake, or a little Bach or Beethoven…

So relax in a tub and stay tuned for music for entertaining

Starlet Soundtrack: Fitness

The Grammy Awards are this weekend, so this week is all about music.  Starlets are the star of the movie of their life… and every movie needs a soundtrack.

Today we’ll be looking at Starlet workout music.  We’ve already discussed how important fitness is in a Starlets life.  But every Starlet needs some motivation to get in shape, and great workout music can do just that.  Here are some ideas:

Latin Music:

Really any artist, English speaking or not, is great for a workout (Zumba anyone?)…. You can pick artists from the Latin boom of the 90s, or go with current artists.  Prince Royce has some great slow Latin music, like one of my favorites, a cover of Stand By Me in English and Spanish, perfect for cool downs.

Anything by Beyoncé:

This girl-power Diva has some great high energy songs (you can even go back to her Destiny’s Child days)… and she has the Dita Von Teese seal of approval.

Daft Punk:

This has a 70s flare and a great tempo (also Dita approved)

Prince:

What can you say about the artist formally known as the “Artist Formally Known As”… he has some great workout songs and no other music will make you feel sexier.

Of course the most important thing about workout music is that it motivates you to work out, so pick your favorites and get moving…

Stay tuned for music for getting ready and pampering yourself!

Setting the Scene: A Starlet Living Space

It’s no secret that Starlets know how to live…. So she need a glamorous space to call her own.  A Starlet home will have a few requirements: 

A Staircase (for dramatic entrances)
A piano (for surprise serenades)
A balcony (to listen to said serenades)
A folding screen (for quick costume changes)
Here is some Starlet living room inspiration from…..
The Movie Top Hat:
Betty Grable (various films):
The film Breakfast at Tiffanys (for small NYC apartments):
Jayne Mansfield (also, see above photos):
Elizabeth Taylor:
Cyd Charisse:
Joan’s apartment on Mad Med:
Dita Von Teese;
Audrey Hepburn:
Happy Decorating and have a Fabulous Weekend!

Someone’s in the Kitchen with Starlet

Starlets love to eat and they love to experiment with food.  The end result may not be all that appetizing (or it may be fabulous) but a Starlet always has fun in her kitchen.  No one has a more glamorous kitchen than Glamour Goddess Dita Von Teese.  The whole kitchen is in her signature color of pink (although she also favors pinks fiery cousin: red)… Jayne Mansfield would have been proud….

Where Starlets Bathe

A Starlet bathroom should feel like an oasis.  It should feel like a space where a Starlet can pamper and beautify herself (in her collection of glamorous robes of course)…..

… and every Starlet needs a bathtub
Stay tunes for glamorous living spaces
