In a series of colorful photographs for “Sport & Style” magazine, photographer Candice Milon captured the main wardrobe for some of the most famous characters in film. Each outfit is neatly folded on a solid colored backdrop to capture the essence of each movie through clothing. It’s like looking at what Marty McFly, Forrest Gump, or James Dean might pack for a trip. To see which movie each outfit and accessory set belongs to, scroll over the images. [Read more...]
Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination. This song has been stuck in my head since I first looked at Rich Pellegrino’s phenomenal portrait of Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. Pellegrino creates vibrant illustrations of some of the most easily recognizable figures in pop culture. Clearly a huge fan of Bill Murray (portraying him in his roles from Caddyshack, Life Aquatic, & Rushmore), the illustrator chooses facial expressions that embody each character to a T. Each one of Pellegrino’s portraits from cult classic movies, such as Pretty in Pink, Back to the Future, The Big Lebowski, and Little Shop of Horrors capture the exact image that comes to mind for each role.

There was one sneaker to own in 1989 and you had to travel to the future to get a pair: Marty McFly’s futuristic, self-lacing, 2015 Nike MAG’s from Back To The Future II. Now, good news for those who have been drooling for the last 22 years: Nike recently created a kicking real life version of the famous and unobtainable sneaker, featuring sweet LED lighted emblems, the iconic teal-flecked gray sole and wrap around cuff. Sadly self-lacing didn’t make it into this edition, but maybe we’ll see that when 2015 really rolls around.
Getting your hands on a pair of the shoes will be challenging. Nike has released just 1500 pairs to the public via eBay auction, with 150 pairs going online for each of 10 days. Appropriately, 100% of proceeds from this very cool project go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Get your pair now! [Read more...]
