It's become hard to tell who exactly is competing for the title "American Idol," the contestants or the judges. Wednesday night's season premiere may pay homage to the stars the show has launched, but it's doubtful that any competition will be quite as fierce as that between new judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. Not surprisingly, early publicity has focused on an alleged diva-feud - what, after all, could be more delicious? - with rumors of off-set take-downs and on-camera eye-rolling.

She's described by director Jacques Audiard as "a diver," someone who "throws herself into a role head first. " So it's believable that the very first scene Marion Cotillard shot for "Rust and Bone" was the most harrowing one, in which she awakes in a hospital after an accident to discover that both her legs are gone. Her reaction is partly improvised - she leaps from the bed only to wind up crawling on the floor and sobbing in the arms of a friend who rushes to her aid. ENVELOPE SCREENING SERIES: "Rust and Bone" "My feeling was that, in that situation, which is so violent and horrifying, the shock must be so strong that you're in denial," says the acclaimed French actress over coffee at the Chateau Marmont.

The men of rock 'n' roll started many major style trends throughout the '60s and '70s — think Beatles and mop tops, Sex Pistols and spikes, KISS and face paint. But women are represented on that list as well: among them, the members of the Runaways, who showed the pop culture universe of the 1970s how strong, smoky eyes and a feathered mullet could rock just as hard as the guys. In the film "The Runaways," which is scheduled to open Friday, lead makeup artist Robin Mathews went for a mix of punk and glam-rock for Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning, who portray Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, the best-known members of the all-girl band.

Holiday sparkle isn't limited to the twinkle of a sequined sweater or colorful cocktail ring. Let your eyes make a festive statement when you go to those New Year's Eve parties or after-Christmas open houses. A colorful smoky eye is a playful twist on the smoldering, sexy look of the typically heavy-lidded dark version. A bright and pearly palette of jewel tones and shocking hues is in style this holiday season -- and in a not-so-subtle way. The look makes eyes pop, freshening up the face and adding color accents to a simple party frock.

The contents of a woman's makeup bag can say as much about her as the shoes that line her closet. A shiny black Chanel eye shadow palette has the same sleek appeal as a sexy pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos, and the gilded exterior of a YSL Touche Ã?clat concealer pen oozes the same sense of luxury as a pair of satin Louboutins. These days, though, such luxe touches are increasingly commingled with products that proudly telegraph "value" and "I don't need to pay more."
