Twin Peaking Our Interest: An Overnight Chez David Lynch, And More Of The Day’s Top Stories

-------

David Lynch has recently shifted his focus from unsettling films and television to unsettling interiors. His members-only Club Silencio in Paris has become a gold-flecked destination among the fashion set, and he’s now lent his talents to a “David Lynch Signature Suite” at Paris’ Hotel Lutetia (pictured). Lynch describes the room, decorated with his own watercolor paintings, as “eerily normal.” Naturally. [Art Info]

Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood is no stranger to the film industry, having worked on the getups for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows, as well as Robert Marshall’s Memoirs of a Geisha, to name a few.

Lily Cole, From Dark-Haired Vamp To Snow White

-------

It takes guts to make another teenage vampire film, but then, no one has ever found director Mary Harron lacking in those—American Psycho, anyone? At last night’s Tribeca Grand Hotel screening of The Moth Diaries, her adaptation of Rachel Klein’s gothic teen novel, Harron explained that when she decided to make the movie,¬†she had no idea what Twilight was. In any case, “The Moth Diaries is saying something different about adolescent girls than those other films are,” she said. “It’s about female friendships, not male-female romance, and the way that your friendships with girls are actually so much more intense than the ones with boys.”

Intense is also the best word for the performance of model-turned-actress Lily Cole, who plays the dark-haired villain Ernessa. She’s mostly left the runway behind, but to hear her tell it, she has no regrets about that. “I was modeling because I fell into it, but it was never something I was trying to pursue,” she told Style.com. “Whereas I love film as a medium and feel quite creative and challenged by it.” Following The Moth Diaries, she’ll appear in Snow White and the Huntsman alongside Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, and after that, make for a smaller screen. “I’m working on this new series with six contemporary artists with Sky Arts,” she said, one that makes good use of her art history degree from Cambridge. Lily Cole’s Art Matters hits the airwaves in the fall.
