MALEFICENT, MALEFICENT, MALEFICENT!!!

Maleficent

Maleficent has always been a character that has captured our imagination. Since childhood, the prima donna of Disney villains seemed to strike a creepy chord in a way that no other cartoon evil could.

It could have been her sultry voice provided by the insatiably listenable Eleanor Audley (check her out in all her non-animated glory below), or perhaps it’s the sheer imagery of that everlastingly long black cloak with those crazy twisted ram horns that make her the epitome of devilish delight to our child-like eyes.

Whatever it may be, there’s no denying the staying power of she. It’s been 55 years since Disney first released its vivid version of Sleeping Beauty based off of Charles Perrault’s La Belle Au Bois Dormant, and the Grimms Brothers’ Little Briar Rose, and in the spirit of regeneration the {past} has made its way to the {present} yet again in a epic retelling of the story as seen through the eyes of the maniacal maven herself. . .

Maleficent.

It’s a name that will be on everybody’s lips in a few short months with an early release in France & Italy on the 28th of May, and the rest of the world, including the US on the 30th. It’s months away, but we can’t stop drooling over the new trailers which are feast for the senses in themselves, showcasing Elle Fanning’s angelic beauty as the Princess Aurora, and the Queen herself, Angelina Jolie taking the screen as the iconic villainess.

It’s bound to be a huge hit, and much praise shall be given to the cast and crew for creating this movie magic marvel. . . there’s no doubting it. Plus, how can you go wrong with Angelina Jolie leading the whole thing?

What strikes me most is that the film being told through the point of view of Maleficent will no doubt shed some light on why she decided to become so damn mean. I think I kind of get it – I mean, she was totally shafted from attending Aurora’s birthday party. That IS pretty rude, don’t you think? I guess we will just have to wait for all the insight . . .

In the meantime, you will find us getting drunk on another amalgamation of the {past}, {present}, and {future} with Lana Del Rey’s sweeping take on 1959’s Sleeping Beauty’s original love theme “Once Upon a Dream” based off a theme from Tchaikovsky’s 1890 ballet. With the cooing of her Monroe-esque voice, there was no one more perfect to elevate this classic to a place that resonates today, and beyond . . .

Listen to it below!

Don’t you love that feeling? Of having dreamt the moment before it happens . . .

I get that feeling a lot these days.

I guess that’s what you get for having that Eye of Faith.

Love predicting the {future}. Love keeping you posted.

Love you also for visiting.

Until we meet again!

GIRL, UNINTERRUPTED : A Look Back on Angelina Jolie

Gia Angelina Jolie Gia Carangi Biography-837982

Earlier today, Angelina Jolie wrote a passionate letter to the New York Times which was published online revealing that the Academy Award winning actress had gone through a mastectomy in order to avoid the risk of breast cancer in her future. The letter is a bold and beautiful move that hopes to empower others to take their health into their own hands.

A quote from the actress reveals a remarkable truth to her circumstances, which may inspire many more people to get to the very “root” of their problems. Jolie discovered she carried the dreaded BRCA1 gene (a gene known to mutate to what we know as breast cancer) and knew what she had to do to ensure living a long and happy life:

I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.

It is reassuring that they see nothing that makes them uncomfortable. They can see my small scars and that’s it. Everything else is just Mommy, the same as she always was. And they know that I love them and will do anything to be with them as long as I can. On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.

The news has sparked a lot of conversation around the world on the subject, and once again, Angelina Jolie shows a maturity and compassion for humanity that is unmatched by any other celebrity in the world. She, is also absolutely stunning. So we thought we’d celebrate her beautiful future by turning to her beautiful past and presenting to you some of the best vintage Angelina Jolie realness we could find on this side of the internet.

Who knows how this decision will change all of our potential futures?

Check out the rest of her letter to the New York Times here.

AND OUR FAVOURITE OF THEM ALL: 

EOF Vintage Angelina Jolie Realness 3

Polaroid of a Teen Witch ? She definitely has displayed a wisdom beyond her years throughout her life, and this latest announcement takes the cake, even for her. You just can’t go wrong with the simplicity of a polaroid. There’s something so present about this moment, as if she’s still just standing right there on the other side of that glossy plastic. Even in her youth she was an icon of individuality, so for that we will always have her at our altar.

+WORSHIP+

That’s about our highest regard.

Until next time,

Vintage Red Carpet Romances: Brad Pitt + Gwyneth.

With the Academy Awards just later tonight, the world is buzzing to see the stars make their red carpet appearances. Jean Dujardin is sure to raise the bar on suaveness with his dapper European sensibilities, and everyone must be asking: WWRMW [What Will Rooney Mara Wear] ?!?!

Unwittingly we are all excited for the arrival of Hollywood’s most notorious couple: “BRANGELINA”. The stars have been together since 2005, after meeting on the set of the action-romantic-comedy “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”. Pitt divorced “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston to be with Jolie, the Academy Award Winning Humanitarian Hollywood Sex Goddess, and we get that.

But, with so much hype over each and every appearance by the undeniably gorgeous couple, we couldn’t help but reminsece the days even before Pitt married the Friends star. We’re tlking pre-1997- when Pitt was a young Bad Boy engaged to a stunning young American ingenue: Gwyneth Paltrow.

Daughter of American director Bruce Paltrow, and famed theatre actress Blythe Danner- Gwyneth is the epitome of true american beauty. Together with Pitt, the couple exude nonchalant American cool, and ultimate Nineties Style. There seems to be a lot of fun happening, too.

Miss those days. It’s like youth on fire with these two. Their energy is obviously contagious between the two, and they really seem symbiotic to eachother . . . . most of the time, at least. All good thing must come to an end, and it’s always best to leave the relationship at a high, we get that.

Today the two seem very happy in their marriages. The couple called off their engagement in 1997, and never looked back. Brad Pitt is nominated this year for his performance in Bennett Miller’s “Moneyball”, and Gwyneth Paltrow…she shows up to stuff.

Keep your eyes open for the fashions of the 84th Annual Academy Awards, and keep your fingers crossed that the stars amp up their style senses (because we’re tired of everyone trying to look so perfect! Shake it up! ) Really wish we could be there!

Sincerely,

{theEye}
