James McAvoy for Prada

Prada sure has an unusual taste in men. Not to complain. Last year the mega fashion brand brought us Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw and Ezra Miller; and now it’s Scottish actor James McAvoy who is the new face for their Fall/Winter 2014 campaign.

The only image of the campaign released so far has been very well received. Shot in black and white by Annie Leibovitz, it features a moody McAvoy strolling on a concrete embankment on a (presumably English?) beach. Fighting the cold, the actor is impeccably dressed from head to toe in Prada, of course.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield’s brilliant stab at paparazzi culture

Not the first to use the ever-present paparazzi for a good cause, but one of our favourite Hollywood couples, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, made headlines yesterday when they both held up signs while being followed by the paparazzi on the street.

The signs read:

Here’s to the stuff that really matters. Have a great day!

GIFs on Twitter

Twitter has just announced that GIFs – previously relegated mostly to Tumblr and Buzzfeed lists – will now be supported by Twitter. Yay! You’ll be able to view GIFs in your Twitter feed in the same way you would JPEG images. (It’s not automatic, though: you’ll have to click for it to work.)

This functionality should definitely help lessen online rage caused by annoying imagery.

Kim K’s new app

Lending her voice and likeness to a new mobile game called ‘Kim Kardashian Hollywood’, the reality star’s app hits the App Store next week. Kardashian posted the trailer of the game on Instagram, saying: ‘Excited to announce the new #KimKardashianGamelaunches next week on the App Store and Google Play! Check out the trailer…’

We’re sad to admit it, but this game will probably make her millions…

Julius brings the house down

Controversial EFF leader Julius Malema caused quite a stir yesterday as he made his first speech as a Member of Parliament at the National Assembly. Watch the below video for some of his ‘gems’ of wisdom:
