Movieline Cover Gallery 2002

StarStyle

The 1995 Style issue of Movieline included a look at five Hollywood fashion plates.  Unfortunately, the photos that accompanied this article were not archived.  I tried to make up for that a bit with some fashionable pictures of the five stars covered here, but the piece definitely loses something without the photographic trip through celebrity fashion.  Still, it’s worth taking a peek at who Movieline thought was worth mentioning for their fashion sense midway through the decade.

The Best-Dressed Actresses in Hollywood


stone - diabolique

The month of September was dedicated to fashion at Movieline.  In the 1996 “Style” issue, Diane Clehane made a list of the best-dressed actresses in Hollywood.  The list originally included ten actresses, but apparently only seven made it to the archives.  So I’m guessing Nicole Kidman, who is referenced more than once, and two others are lost to the internet.

A-List Smackdown: Pfeiffer Vs. Ryan

Regular readers of my What the Hell Happened articles know that sometimes the comments section takes on a life of its own.  For reasons unknown, we have discussed Michael Keaton fighting just about every actor who worked in the 1980’s.  The most recent entry focused on Michelle Pfeiffer.  Blogger, Paul S brought up the idea of comparing Pfeiffer’s career to previous WtHH subject, Meg Ryan.  This resulted in an excellent article on Paul S’s blog devoted to the two actresses comparing their careers.

I started typing up a response to the article.  It may not surprise anyone to know I rambled on and on.  My final comment was practically an article unto itself.  But then tragedy struck.  Blogger.com (which doesn’t seem to like me very much) ate my comments!  I left an abbreviated version of my original comments and vowed to come back later for a more detailed analysis.

You’re clever folks.  You have probably already figured out that those comments morphed into this article.

What the Hell Happened to Michelle Pfeiffer?

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer was one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood.  She starred opposite Al Pacino, Harrison Ford, Sean Connery and Jack Nicholson.  The image of Pfeiffer cracking a whip as Catwoman is iconic.  And then, she disappeared for seveal years.  Recently, Pfeiffer has resurfaced.  But her days on the A-list appear to be behind her.

So, what the hell happened?
