Hi Everyone,

Guys, we did it: It’s Friday and for (most) of us we are still in one piece. Not only is it the weekend, but it’s a long weekend. Oh, and it’s that Hallmark Holiday thing tomorrow (if you have a Honey, great, if not skip “50 Shades” and get boozy with your Girlfriends). Just go do something fun— we have an extra day!

As per usual, here is the “Weekly Round Up!” This week was an interesting one in particular for Entertainment so this post is a little Industry heavy but interesting none the less. Lots on here to fill the 3 day freedom we have!

So take a look, jump down for links, and have a great long weekend!

– Gorgeous Gals Elizabeth Olsen, Dakota Fanning, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoe Kraviz, and Frieda Pinto cover VS Magazine’s Spring/Summer 2015 issue. Featured here is Ms.Olsen’s spread. Her pictures are breathtaking, haunting, a bit creepy, and it’s one of the more interesting spreads I have seen in a magazine in a long time. Check out the whole issues, on stands now.


“Emanating the timeless beautify of Hollywood stars of bygone years, ELIZABETH OLSEN brings modernity to her role in this cinematic VS. ‘thriller.’ Dress in sophisticated, structured looks, the actress portrays a neo- noir heroine, escaping an ominous evil or, perhaps, an internal paranoia. Set in New York’s haunting High Line Hotel, this is one nightmare we don’t want to wake from.”- VS. Magazine
