Cruel Summer, cute couple!

Kim Kardashian was the best plus-one ever for beau Kanye West at Wednesday’s Cannes Film Festival premiere of Cruel Summer, the rapper’s new art film/art installation.

The reality star, 31, wore a jaw-dropping gold-and-cream Balmain dress with a plunging neckline and super-short hem, paired with sexy ankle boots. (The frock has already been worn by Katy Perry, Zoe Saldanaand other stars.) West, 34, complemented his love of nearly three months in a white shirt, cream jacket, denim and black loafers.

According to a source, the couple “were inseparable” at the afterparty forCruel Summer, one of the first projects of West’s Donda creative firm. The twosome were “kissing in the back the whole time.” (West’s buddy Jay Z, sans wife Beyonce, showed up to support his frequent collaborator.)

There’s certainly nothing evil about Charlize Theron’s sheer dress. Kristen’s, not so sure

Charlize Theron turns up to the London premiere of Snow White wearing a sexy see through dress

She plays the evil queen in Snow White and the Huntsman and although she had a black dress on, like what we’d imagine evil queens wear, there was nothing nasty about Charlize tonight as she arrived at the premiere of her latest film.

Wearing a floor length number, Charlize swanned into London’s Leicester Square with her lovely long legs on display through the sheer material and almost showing a bit of boob too.

Sexy and evil - Charlize ticks all boxes

We’ve studied these pictures quite hard and are pretty sure her modesty is being protected by some flesh coloured material under there – unfortunately.

Kristen Stewart also stars in the movie as Snow White and Charlize told Celebuzz she thinks she’s got a great future ahead of her: “I think that she is going to have an amazing career,” she said.

“I think, as an actor, she’s doing it, because she really loves her job and she is really good at it. My experience has been, if your reasons for doing this is authentic as that and you have the tenacity and guts that she has, then I think you have the right personality for this job. I think she has that.”

Nothing evil about her at all.

Summer Essentials

From Vanity Fair Fashion Dept.
By Michael Carl

As I put away my winter sweaters and pulled out my shorts and summer tees earlier this week, I thought to myself, “This is going to be the best summer ever.” I was preparing to go on a camping trip to a destination with no cell-phone service, so naturally I didn’t say this aloud to any of my friends. I have seen enough horror movies to know that can only end badly.

It’s not often that I think like this, but something is in the air this year and I can feel it in my bones. So bring it on—the sun, the waves, the beach, the drinks by the pool, and the decadent meals that last too long into the night. I am ready for it all! Here are some seasonal essentials to help you dress the part and make the most of what is destined to be the best summer ever. (I know, I am also a little confused at my newfound optimism. Just roll with it; I am.)

1/21

A Chambray Shirt. I don’t know when or how it happened, but suddenly a chambray shirt became a summer essential. It is now totally fine to wear it with jeans as well as with any other kind of pant. This J.Crew chambray shirt is the best one I’ve found; it looks great with the sleeves rolled up for the beach, tucked in your khakis for a casual day look, and with a suit (my personal favorite).

J.Crew Slim Selvedge Chambray Utility Shirt. $98, jcrew.com.

2/22

Swim Shorts. If you don’t own a bright-colored swimsuit this summer, you might as well not even go to the beach. I recently fell in love with this swimsuit line called Onia. You can get the trunks in three lengths, depending on how comfortable you are with your legs or how appropriate they are for whatever beach you are on. What fits in on the beaches of Far Rockaway may not be just right for, say, Fire Island. Bonus: if you have a son, they come in matching kids’ sizes. I am getting one for my godson and stealing him away for the weekend, to give Mom and Dad a “break” while I complete my evil plan to become the world’s coolest uncle.

3/22

Boat Shoes. I have been trumpeting boat shoes since I started writing Carl’s Crush, and I think they are going to be huge again this summer. So huge, in fact, that I think you need to find a pair that has something a little special so you can stand out from the crowd. These multicolored deck shoes from Lanvin will be suitably unique, plus they’re Lanvin.

Nike Basketball Elite Series

The NBA playoffs start Saturday, and Nike is ready with the Elite Series, three updated signature hoops shoes—the LeBron 9 ($250), Nike Kobe VII ($200) and Nike Zoom Hyperdunk ($200)—that take both your game and your style to the next level. We got a sneak peek at all three in the backroom of a Nike showcase, and thanks to high-tech materials (Kevlar, carbon fiber) and high-end construction, they look ready to fly. But don’t take our word for it. We also spoke to the designers behind them.

“The premise behind the Elite Series was to take our existing best of the best product and make it even better,” says Leo Chang, design director for Nike Basketball Footwear. “Using the best technologies for the best performance when it matters most—getting that championship trophy.”

A few cool features that all three shoes share: home and away colors (white and black). Carbon fiber-infused shanks and heel counters to keep them light and responsive. Nike Pro Combat inspired padded collar protection for support and a no-slip sock liner for internal traction. Ultra-high tensile strength Flywire (those gold wires you see in the Hyperdunk, above) for the ultimate combination of low weight and high durability. And while you can pick up the gold Swoosh version this weekend, the players themselves only move from a white Swoosh to a gold one if their team makes the NBA Finals.

So, which shoe is for you? “Always get the LeBrons,” jokes Jason Petrie, the designer behind, yes, the Lebrons. “I would look at what your game is like. You know, Lebron is really all about strength, so his shoe is better for a bigger, stronger guy. Whereas the Hyperdunk is all about lightweight performance, it’s kind of that weapon anybody can go to. And the Kobe is about that dynamic ride, that super light, low, soccer-esque silhouette.” Add to your arsenal the day the playoffs begin at store.nike.com.

Interview: adidas Designer Robbie Fuller Breaks Down the adiZero Crazy Light 2

Yesterday in Los Angeles, adidas Basketball introduced the adiZero Crazy Light 2. Set to hit stores on May 24th, the $140 9.5 ounce shoe will be the lightest basketball shoe in the world — edging out its predecessor, the Crazy Light, by 3/10ths of an ounce. We sat down with designer Robbie Fuller to get some insight into the process, and find out what it takes to make a successful sequel.

So where did you guys start with this?

Not from scratch [laughs].

Right – because I know how long the leadouts are, you must have been working on this before the first adiZero Crazy Light came out.

Yes. For sure. There are bits and pieces of the shoe we can trace back for years. But generally when everyone was celebrating over the Crazy Light1, I was at my desk putting pen to paper for the Crazy Light 2.

Were elements from the D. Rose line — did those get incorporated into this, too?

I wouldn’t say directly, but I’m the same guy going after a similar benefit, which is light. So I think of it as a spectrum. If you pick up the Rose shoe, it’s light — sometimes freaky light — but it has the lifestyle a little more into it because the recipe for success for that , but here it’s just laser focus of the lightest basketball shoe of all time, so some of those same solutions like the SPRINTFRAME go across both, but over here we gotta turn up the knob on lightweight.

Was there a specific weight you wanted to hit with the 2, knowing where you were at with the 1?

Lighter than the 1. [Laughs] I mean literally, it was just like, all right we have the Crazy Light 1, we’ve had half a million people all around the world ballin’ in this shoe, D1, NBA, so we know it’s a great shoe, but any shoe can get refined. Any product can get refined. A house, a car, whatever. A [Porsche] 911, right? It doesn’t change over the years that much, just slight tweaks. So in the same vein, I was just looking at this shoe [the 1] like, “all right, did I take enough advantage of the SPRINTFRAME,” “did I take as much advantage of the forefoot support,” of the rubber, could I thin down the rubber? So I really just made a list — I call it a gameplan — marketing gives me a brief, but I’ve got my design gameplan and I just call out the pieces that I thought still had room to improve: who was the sixth man on the Crazy Light 1, you know? It was like, all right, SPRINTFRAME, here we go, you’re gonna step up. That’s definitely how I made it up for this particular shoe, because it’s so geared towards performance — it lives and dies on the performance of it. Trends come and go, winning is always cool. As long as we keep delivering like this, we’ll always be in the mind of anyone lacing up their sneakers.

Is that where you looked to first, the SPRINTFRAME, to lose weight?

Yeah, because it’s the material on the shoe that has the most strength for how much it weighs. So the more you can use it to stabilize the shoe, you’re taking off some of the other layers, the laminates and such that you’d like to reduce. And so, that was definitely the key thing. And the bigger thing was also just about, the first one was just focused on the ultimate court, the NBA court. This one we were like, hey, can this be outdoor? Can you get these things where you thicken up the rubber, you add more abrasion-resistant rubbers, in order to make sure it can play indoor and outdoor. So if you go around the shoe, whether it’s the high-abrasion rubber, how it’s different, we’ve got high abrasion on the toe, the stripes are reflective, little cues from outdoor, one of the materials, the embosses are ripstop from outdoor jackets. So that was another little piece of the pie. The first one was so great, but can you add a little more durability to it. Which is crazy, right? I’m the designer, I’m thinking “hold on, this brief is asking how can I add all these things to it and still make it lighter?” But luckily, with the right team, we came to the right product.
