MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Jamie Cullum singing “Pure Imagination”

 

 

This song is one of our favourites in Chez Luscious.

So make a batch of martinis, light some candles, and have a slow dance with someone you love.

A SENSUAL LIFE: “Fifty Shades of Grey” official trailer

 


FIFTY SHADES OF GREY – First official trailer: OK, so I refused to read the book because it didn’t sound like my thing. But the trailer looks kinda hot, no?

Take a look and leave a comment below. Did they get the cast right? Who would you have put in the roles? And will you see the movie?

LUSCIOUS AT THE MOVIES: The “other” Saint Laurent film trailer with Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent

 

 Sorry, no English subtitles!

 

It’s odd seeing this trailer, having recently watched the rival 2014 Yves Saint Laurent movie starring Pierre Niney and Guillaume Gallienne, as YSL and Pierre Berge respectively. Read more about it here.

This alternate film, called simply Saint Laurent, is due for release in September. It’s co-written and directed by Bertrand Bonello, and starring Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent, Jérémie Renier as Pierre Bergé and Louis Garrel as Jacques de Bascher. Read more about it here.

Are you so devoted to fashion that you will see both? I know it sounds a bit silly when they look identical, but I probably will!
