CelebrityLuLu*s Ode to Scream Queens

Halloween is quickly approaching, loves, and in honor of such a spooooky holiday, we are bringing you our definitive ranking of Scream Queens! What makes a “scream queen,” you might ask? Well, a queen of true screams is one kick-butt, no-fear girl who won’t go down without a fight. And she typically lasts through the sequel (or several), consistently proving why she rules the horror movie genre! So, without further ado, the babes that make blood look fierce!

Janet Leigh as Marion Crane
in
 Psycho

The start of it all – when leading ladies in horror films were really put on the map – was with Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock’s spine-tingling Psycho. She may not have outlasted Norman Bates, but she did shock us all with the final scream!

Heather Langenkamp as Nancy Thompson
in A Nightmare on Elm Street

Poor little Nancy Thompson just can’t get away from Freddy Krueger in Wes Craven’s big-screen nightmare, but she ultimately finds herself face-to-face with the killer, and brings us the term of “final girl” as she survives!

Sarah Michelle Gellar as Helen Shivers
in I Know What You Did Last Summer

Not only does Sarah Michelle make our list for her role as the gorgeously gruesome Helen, but we also have to acknowledge her roles as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and her lead as Karen in The Grudge. This girl has major pipes in the horror genre!

Jennifer Love Hewitt as Julie James
in I Know What You Did Last Summer

Good girl Julie James (a personal favorite) finds herself at odds with a man she and her friends “killed” one summer, only to discover that he isn’t dead at all, but seeking his vengeance. How she survives isn’t pretty, but hey, at least Freddie Prinze Jr. was by her side!

Drew Barrymore as Casey Becker
in Scream

Okay okay, so Drew Barrymore didn’t make it past that iconic first scene in Scream, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t still talking about her role and final scream in this cult classic. Wanna play a game?

Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott
in Scream

Our runner-up for THE leading lady of horror (and the actual Scream Queen) is Miss Sidney Prescott herself, who has made it through four terrifying films in which “Ghostface” stalks her and eliminates those around her one by one. Again, we ask, wanna play a game?

And the ULTIMATE Scream Queen…

Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode
in Halloween

As the daughter of the original leading lady of horror flicks, Janet Leigh (who also made our list), Jamie had big shoes to fill. Turns out, those genes run strong in such a talented family because Jamie Lee Curtis really took the title of scream queen and ran with it (get it?). Having survived through every sequel, we can’t imagine Michael Myers ever stood a chance against this bad babe!

CelebrityTaylor Swift Covers Harper’s Bazaar Germany!

Taylor Swift has it all going for her right now. Anticipation is high for her new album 1989, she had a breakout role in The Giver over the summer, she has a high-profile crew of besties, and, in the past month, has graced the cover of three magazines. Why do we love this cover girl so? Her “shake it off” attitude, those catchy tunes, and her overall girl-power persona give women of all ages a new lease on confidence and self-empowerment. In this month’s Harper’s Bazaar Germany spread, shot by Paola Kudacki, Ms. Swift is all dolled-up in chic dresses, winter-wear, and glam workout gear, owning every look and making it as fabulous as the last! You go, girl.

It is with very heavy hearts that we bid farewell to a fashion mogul and style icon, Mr. Oscar de la Renta. We can never repay him for his influence on the world of fashion, but we will continue to honor him with style and grace in every wear of one of his amazing designs. Oscar, we thank you for always making us feel fabulous!

CelebrityCrush of the Week: Andrew Lincoln

Calling all The Walking Dead fans… This week is probably our biggest crush yet. With those baby blues, that scruff, and the way he wears a sheriff’s hat, how could we NOT be in love with Andrew Lincoln?! We’re still not sure how it’s possible to look THAT handsome during a zombie apocalypse, but hey, we don’t mind. We first fell for Mr. Lincoln as the lovable, sign-holding, baby-faced gentleman in love with his best friend’s girl in Love Actually, and we haven’t looked back since. Lead on, Andrew, we’d follow you anywhere!

CelebrityJennifer Lawrence for Vanity Fair 2014

Don’t call Jennifer Lawrence “America’s sweetheart” any longer. Now she’s America’s truth-telling, no-excuse making, downright kick-butt chick. In her latest stunning Vanity Fair editorial shot by the infamous Patrick Demarchelier, she is an absolute vision. Beverly Hills, wavy tresses, a cockatoo, and Jennifer’s fierce gaze make for the perfect tropical shoot. Her article also tackles some hard-hitting topics like the paparazzi and her personal trials, and we just can’t deny how captivated we are by such a strong woman (that breathtaking beaded dress doesn’t hurt, either!).
