Girl Power At The Venice Film Festival, Brought To You By Miu Miu

-------

Miu Miu is set to debut the fourth installment of its “Women’s Tales” short film series as part of the Venice Film Festival later this week. Miuccia Prada commissioned the project, which began last year with Zoe Cassavetes’ short The Powder Room), to celebrate young female directors from around the globe and explore feminine rituals and codes. After screening short movies by Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel, and Giada Colagrande, Miu Miu will present director Massy Tadjedin’s It’s Getting Late Thursday night at Lido’s Sala Darsena. In the film, actresses Gemma Arterton, Rinko Kikuchi, Patricia Clarkson, and Aubrey Plaza get dressed up for a night out in Hollywood (wearing plenty of Miu Miu, of course). Before the crowds get to see the full film in Venice, Style.com has a first look at the trailer here. If you happen to be in Venice for the film festival, you can catch all of the project’s directors at live panel discussions in the Sala Tropicana on August 31 as part of Miu Miu’s Venice Days (a three-day showcase celebrating avant-garde cinema).

Wishing And Hoping

-------

The cause itself is unimpeachable, but the reason why the Hoping Foundation’s annual fundraiser for Palestinian children has become the best night out on London’s charity circuit is because it’s such damn fun. Where else on a gloomy Monday are you going to see Kate Moss coughing up £20,000 to motivate Boy George’s performance of “Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me?” Or have the Chili Peppers belting out “Californication” and “By the Way” this far from your table? Among the evening’s other random, raffish charms: Gemma Arterton charging through a hopped-up version of “Sympathy for the Devil,” Jarvis Cocker slinking off the stage and across Eva Herzigova’s table while crooning Phyllis Nelson’s soul classic “Move Closer,” Mossy dancing till 3 a.m. with the latest U.K. hip-hop sensations the Rizzle Kicks (nice 20th birthday present for Harley Kicks). Hoping’s events have coached us to expect the unexpected, like 2010′s union of Nick Cave and Tom Jones, and re-union of David Gilmour and Roger Waters. Last night came pretty close to that, kudos, as usual, to the formidable address books of co-trustees Bella Freud and Karma Nabulsi, and their equally formidable powers of persuasion. And, by the end of the evening, £380,000 had been raised to put toward everything from schoolbooks to university scholarships for children in refugee camps. Result!

“G” Is For Gallo, Liza By Terry (No, Really), Dennis Hopper’s Vans Roll Out, And More…

-------

Actor Vincent Gallo is the new G-Star. The indie film star has been tapped by the line as the face of their Fall ’11 menswear campaigns, along with British actress Gemma Arterton, who was also in the Spring campaign. [WWD]

Actor and artist Dennis Hopper died in May 2010, but this month, his collaboration with Vans that started roughly 18 months ago finally hits Urban Outfitters stores. The ten-piece collection of boots, jackets, and graphic T-shirts featuring some of his photographs was completed by his daughter and the Hopper Foundation. [WWD]

We’ve already seen the multiple new covers of the latest issue of Love, featuring young, new faces like Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. But the latest shoot to hit the Web features a star of slightly more vintage stock: Liza Minnelli, shot in black leather and fur by Terry Richardson. [Vogue.U.K.]

Julianne Moore reprises a recent role: the face of Talbots. The redheaded actress will be the star of the retailer’s Fall ’11 campaign, having first appeared in the label’s campaign for Spring ’10. [Racked]

Brits Do It Better

-------

“The British, I think they just have a better sense of humor,” Dree Hemingway said last night at the after-party for English director Stephen Frears’ new film Tamara Drewe at the Crosby Street Hotel. She’d spent the rainy evening taking in a Cinema Society and Altoids-hosted screening and got a kick out of the dark comedy, which is adapted from the graphic novel by Posy Simmonds. The dreary, perfect movie-watching weather brought her good company: Frears alum Glenn Close (who starred in the director’s award-winning Dangerous Liaisons), Matthew Broderick, and Dominic Cooper among them. Gemma Arterton (left), the film’s star and also on hand, laid claim to the moody drizzle. “I always bring the weather with me and I came from London,” the actress confessed.

While there weren’t any debonair spies for the former Bond girl this time around, Arterton’s character—a feisty journalist with a nose job—does spend the film wreaking havoc in the English countryside. It was shot on location, which makes it a homecoming, of sorts, for the actress. “I used to go to Somerset, which is the county next door, and it’s my favorite part of England. It’s most beautiful in fall,” she said. “Luckily, I’ve worked there twice already—see, I’m meant to be there!”

She May Be A Jagger, But She’s Feeling G’N'R

-------

Take it from newly minted denim guru Georgia May Jagger: It’s all about a great cut. The face of Hudson Jeans has, as you can imagine, been in more than a few pairs of late, and the secret, she says, is “they have to fit like a glove, and to be the best cut for your body because different people look good in different styles.” A bunch of those “different people” came out last night to be tailor-measured for that ideal fit, courtesy of Hudson and one of its key stockists, London denim mecca Trilogy Jeans. Daisy Lowe, Amber LeBon, Liberty Ross, Bond girl Gemma Arterton, Ben Grimes, and Jasmine Guinness all lined up to get theirs, and left happy. Jagger wasn’t on premises, sadly—a school exam stood in the way, reminding us that even the most fabulous aren’t exempt from homework—but she did speak to Style.com to vouch a few opinions. “They go with anything,” she said of the Hudson range. “And the fabric is really great quality, so they will last forever and fade beautifully.” Her pick of the litter? “I really like black skinny jeans, and the lace-up in the back [pictured on Georgia, above] is very rock ‘n’ roll; reminds me of Guns N’ Roses—they always rocked lace-up trousers.” No word on what Dad thinks of her taste in bands.
