In brief: Paula Sweet releases new book; Kardashians and Jenners mobbed by paparazzi; Cannes controversies
by Lucire staff/May 6, 2016/10.25
Many of you have enjoyed Paula Sweet’s photography in Lucire, and now you can have an entire volume of her work with her new book, Do Not.
Paula has caught signs all over our planet during her travels, and asks in the synopsis, ‘In a world of limitation and regulation, how aware are you of the restrictions placed on your own existence?’
The premise is an excellent one that encourages us to think: ‘In this collection of signs discovered all over Planet Earth, the artist and photographer Paula Sweet documents the shrinking area of personal freedom and encourages us to rethink the contrary: if a sign is to be placed, should it not encourage us to some productive or positive action?’
Lucire readers can enjoy a 40 per cent discount for a limited time (US$39Â·56, marked down from US$65Â·94), commencing early May 2016, if you use this link here.
Meanwhile, in the celebrity world, this latest compilation from Celebrity Wire shows how manic things areâ€”and we don’t think there’s much personal freedom for some of these 2016 “names”. Except it isn’t signs restricting their freedom, but a gauntlet of paparazzi. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kris Jenner are seen and photographed leaving homes and heading into clubs and restaurants; “it” couple Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom head into a waiting cab; new Calvin Klein fragrance face and rising actress Margot Robbie left her apartment; and Emma Roberts had lunch, and a dozen followed her home. Surprisingly, Justin Bieber kept a low profile as he walked through LAX, while Christina Applegate gave a thumbs-up but obscured the lower part of her face as she left the terminal. It’s definitely not the life, thank you!
In our second video, Jane Fonda speaks about the second season of Grace and Frankie at the Netflix premiÃ¨re. She notes that during the course of the new season, Grace realizes Frankie is good for her, and they become friends.
Finally, with the Festival de Cannes about to kick off, Cover looks at five recent controversies to hit the event.
