Quote of the Week, Stealing Sharon's Style, Indian Company to Buy MGM? and Polanski's "The Ghost Writer" Wins Yet Another Award

Here is the quote of the week by Sharon herself:

"I guess I kind of lived in a fairytale world... looking at everything through rose-colored glasses. I probably always will, to a certain extent."

Stealing Sharon's style again?  You bet, another make up artist and hair stylist has admitted to using Sharon's signature look although he gets her decade wrong by saying she was a model in the 1970s.  Even though he made that mistake it is so nice to hear Sharon referred to as being an 'actress and model' instead of just 'murder victim.'

Here is the article, it's links and photos:

The 70s are alive and well here at Julien MacDonald. While Malcolm Edwards primps and preens models’ hair into Sharon Tate inspired teased bouffs, James Kaliardos is sculpting faces and adding false lashes by the dozen for doll-like wide-eyed innocence. Healthy and sexy but with a modern feel (it must be the clever contouring and airy feel to hair) it is an homage at its very best.

And it was news here:

LFW S/S '11 Beauty Report: Julien Macdonald

So if there was one look to choose from (so far) at LFW for wear-ability, achievability and all round gorgeous factor, it would have to be the look from Julien Macdonald. Make up artist James Kaliardos used two different foundations to contour and warm skin 'it's a Seventies tan!' James told us 'inspired by Sharon Tate, who was a gorgeous Seventies actress and model'. He glammed up eyes with l'Oreal Paris Chrome Intensity Metallic Brown on the eyes and added extra lashes just at the centre of the upper lash; 'just as Sharon did' and lips were uber-natural with a kiss of lip-toned lipstick. Though the look wouldn't have been complete without hairstylist Malcolm Edwards and his 'thatched root, airy ends' creation. Loosely pinned on top and bouncy all over, he described it as a 'modern sexy set'. Basically the hair we all dream of having!

The studio who owns Sharon's films such as "Eye of the Devil", MGM is in talks with an Indian Company that may buy the film empire:

Indian company in talks to buy MGM: report by Russ Britt

LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch)  The beleaguered Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. studio may have found a buyer in Indian conglomerate Sahara India Pariwar, which is looking to pay roughly $2.4 billion for the venerable filmmaking brand, according to a media report Sunday.

The Journal said Sunday that Sahara is in exploratory talks for MGM, which faces a takeover from creditors next month as part of its bankruptcy proceedings, The Wall Street Journal reported in its online edition.

The studio was due to be taken over by Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, who oversee the production company Spyglass Entertainment, the Journal said. The two have signed a letter of intent to manage MGM after it climbs out of bankruptcy.

The Journal said MGM owes creditors $4 billion and Sahara was looking to pay 60 cents on the dollar for MGM's obligations, or roughly $2.4 billion. But it may have to fork over much more than that in order to interest creditors in the deal.

MGM is responsible for numerous classic films such as the ? "Wizard of Oz"? and ? "Gone With The Wind"? as well as the James Bond film series. For the last several decades, MGM has been passed around among a number of owners.
