Actors including Catherine Keener, Elle Fanning and Bobby Cannavale took to the stage for a one-act play as part of the Opening Ceremony brand's New York Fashion Week runway show on Sunday (07Sep14). The fashion house's founders and creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon showcased their spring 2015 collection at a unique venue and invited celebrities and style mavens alike to the iconic Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.
Guests were escorted through the back of the theatre and ushered to their seats, which were placed on the same stage as the performers in the hour-long play starring Fanning, who was making her stage debut, Keener, Cannavale, Alia Shawkat, John Cameron Mitchell, Rashida Jones, and models Dree Hemingway and Karlie Kloss.
Titled 100% Lost Cotton, the production featured model characters played by Fanning and Hemingway waiting for a fitting at an Opening Ceremony runway show. Mitchell and Keener played versions of designers Lim and Leon, while Cannavale served as a stylist secretly in love with Leon's husband.
100% Lost Cotton was written by filmmaker Spike Jonze and actor Jonah Hill, who jokingly reminded the audience before the show began that it was his first foray into the theatre.
Among the guests checking out the one-of-a-kind runway show was Fanning's older sister Dakota, Yoko Ono, Rosario Dawson, Chloe Sevigny, Skrillex, Joe Jonas, Alexa Chung, Mindy Kaling and Arcade Fire's Win Butler.
As America's Next Top Model's 21st cycle unfolds, we've decided to take a look at previous seasons to see how often Tyra and her ever-changing panel of judges choose the right model. As anyone who has watched the show throughout the years (and the marathons every time they're on TV) knows, the model you spend all season rooting for rarely wins, no matter how much she deserves to.
Who Won: Adrianne Curry
Should Have Won: Adrianne Curry
If only Tyra's first season were a sign of things to come. She picked it right. Adrianne had that special blend of being cool, a good model, and reality TV perfection (which is essential for a first season). She went on to become a "star" on Vh1's CelebReality, and we continued to grow up watching the ups and downs of her relationship with a Brady. That sort of contribution to our adolescence is invaluable.
Who Won: Yoanna House
Should Have Won: Mercedes Scelba-Shorte
Mercedes was perfect! She was such a great model, she had the cutest personality, and she was owning the competition while suffering with Lupus. Her final photo and her Billie Holiday photo are some of our favorite in ANTM history.
Who Won: Eva Pigford
Should Have Won: Toccara Jones, Yaya DaCosta
Eva was okay, but we loved Toccara. She left too soon, and we began to root for Eva. Looking back on this cycle now though, it's hard not to feel like Yaya is sort of like ANTM's Jennifer Hudson -- she lost, but has the best career possibly out of any of the girls.

Who Won: Naima Mora
Should Have Won: Kahlen Rondot
This is a no brainer. Kahlen was perfect. Naima was a good model, okay, sure. But she was quiet and enigmatic. Kahlen was shy, but adorable and relatable. And, if we're being frank, a far superior model.
Who Won: Nicole Linklater
Should Have Won: Bre Scullark (or Nik Pace)
We loved Bre. We still love Bre. She will always be one of our favorites. We rooted for Nik after Bre was eliminated, but Tyra didn't seem to care and picked the annoying and whiny Nicole.
Who Won: Danielle (Dani) Evans
Should Have Won: Joanie Dodds
This makes us uncomfortable to say, because we really like both girls here. This was one of the rare instances where we would have been happy regardless of who won. For some reason, we always remember this as the cycle that Joanie won though. Clearly she left the stronger impression (although we'll never forget Dani's photo on top of the elephant, while she was sick).
Who Won: CariDee English
Should Have Won: CariDee English
We felt really bad when Melrose lost because she was consistently good. She tried so hard to be perfect. Sure, she wasn't the most likable, but she was undeniably a good model. But CariDee had the whole package. She was likable and could model. We would have been happy if one of the twins won too though (just saying...).
Who Won: Jaslene Gonzalez
Should Have Won: Renee Alway
We were rooting for Renee from the very beginning. When she came in third place, we obviously started supporting Jaslene just to prevent the bizarre Natasha from winning. Deep down though, we still feel wronged by Renee's elimination.
Who Won: Saleisha Stowers
Should Have Won: Jenah Doucette
We never liked Saleisha. She kind of looked like Rihanna if Rihanna were on Disney. We were never into it. Chantal similarly had sanitized feel to her. Jenah shined as the only normal, likable girl in the cycle. She was a great model too!
Who Won: Whitney Thompson
Should Have Won: Anya Kop
This is one that outrages us still. Whitney was unlikable and even the judges thought so for most of the season. She just happened to get farther than any other plus-sized model, so they let her win. Everybody knows that Anya ran that cycle as if she were already a professional. Her photo shoot with Nigel? Her Sprite campaign? And don't even get us started on the injustice of eliminating Tiffani Thiessen-lookalike Katarzyna. How did they pick Whitney?
Who Won: McKey Sullivan
Should Have Won: McKey Sullivan
Girl was flawless. She was tall, stunning, poised, and had a lovely personality. Honorable mention to Analeigh Tipton though for doing her thing and having a great career.

Who Won: Teyona Anderson
Should Have Won: Allison Harvard
Allison. Our favorite contestant in the history of ANTM. This one hurts. We're not quite ready to talk about it.
Who Won: Nicole Fox
Should Have Won: Nicole Fox
We loved Nicole and we loved runner-up Laura Kirkpatrick. Tyra didn't have the chance to mess this cycle up.
Who Won: Krista White
Should Have Won: Raina Hein
Raina has been working more than anyone else from this cycle -- we've been seeing her pop up on commercials, and a working model is a successful one. Overall, we didn't really like this cycle.
Who Won: Ann Ward
Should Have Won: Kayla Ferrel
First of all, Ann's runway walk was not good. Chelsey and Jane were both good models, but there was something about Kayla that we were consistently drawn to. She somehow looked like a classic beauty, yet edgy and modern. She was fieeeeerce.
Who Won: Brittani Kline
Should Have Won: Hannah Jones
Were we the only ones who didn't hate Alexandria? We would have been happy if she won, but instead we were left with Brittani. She was a fine model, but on a personal level, we just stopped liking her after that meltdown in panel. Hannah also reminded us a lot of Analeigh from cycle 12, so we had a soft spot for her.
Who Won: Lisa D'Amato
Should Have Won: Allison Harvard
TWICE? REALLY? Allison, who broke our hearts when she was runner-up in cycle 12, admits that it sucks to be runner-up twice. She should have won. Twice. She's the best. We'll never be ready to talk about this.
Who Won: Sophie Sumner
Should Have Won: ...Annaliese Dayes? ...Laura LaFrate? Maybe Sophie?
This is one of those cycles that had three great girls at the end. At one point or another, we rooted for all of them to win. We're happy Sophie won because she was a cutie, but we loved Annaliese way more throughout the competition. She was like a Spice Girl and a model all in one.
Who Won: Laura James
Should Have Won: Leila Goldkuhl
Laura is a fantastic model -- let's just get that out of the way up front. Leila was eliminated, because Tyra rarely makes good decisions, and brought back by the fans who loved her. Clearly she was a fan-favorite and she should have won. Leila was definitely better than runner-up Kiara.
Who Won: Jourdan Miller
Should Have Won: Renee Bhagwandeen
Our friend texted within the first episode of ANTM 2.0 saying she couldn't stand the girl who was married and divorced at 18. And she never really made us like her more. On the other hand, from the moment Renee was shown in the casting episode, she had our vote. We were gung-ho from the get-go. Sure, Cory and Marvin were fantastic, but personally we're still rooting for the girls.
Will Tyra make the right choice in Cycle 21?
Take That star Gary Barlow has finally addressed his 2014 tax avoidance scandal by apologising to fans in a tweet. The multi-millionaire singer/songwriter hit social media on Tuesday (02Sep14) to comment on the drama, which led many U.K. politicians to demand he give back his Most Excellent Order of the British Empire medal (OBE).
The Let Me Go hitmaker refused to comment on the story when it broke in May (14), but now he is hoping to win back his fans by saying sorry.
He wrote, "I want to apologise to anyone who was offended by the tax stories earlier this year.
"With a new team of accountants we are working to settle things with all parties involved ASAP (as soon as possible)."
He then tweeted news about his upcoming stage musical and Take That album.
American football star Tom Brady badgers his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen for attention by whining and pouting until he gets his way. The New England Patriots quarterback admits he has picked up a few tips from their kids Benjamin, four, and Vivian, one, to win the beauty's affection.
He tells Man of the World magazine, "I like attention from her. So when I'm not getting it, I let her know in immature ways, like a young, immature child would. You throw fits... you pout and you whine until you get what you want."
However, he confesses his tactics aren't working as well as they used to: "She's on to me... So now I have to learn new tricks."
The couple has been married since 2009.
British-Irish boyband One Direction have seen off competition from Justin Bieber to win a special prize from MTV.
The Story Of My Life hitmakers have been crowned the network's Hottest Summer Superstar of 2014 for the second consecutive year after gaining more than 56 million votes from fans. They trumped fellow pop star Bieber, who landed in second place with 47 million.
One Direction star Louis Tomlinson says of the award, "We are absolutely over the moon and we realise that obviously we couldn't do this without you so thank you so much for all your votes - you guys are the best fans in the world."
The top five includes Lana Del Rey at three, followed by Lady Gaga at four and boyband 5 Seconds Of Summer in fifth.
Rapper Nas is venturing into a new business deal by investing in a ticket search engine company. The One Mic hitmaker is using his money to back SeatGeek.com, joining professional athletes including Carmelo Anthony and Peyton and Eli Manning in contributing a combined $35 million (£20.6 million) to the firm, which helps fans find the best deals available for tickets to live shows, games and other events.
Nas says, "I'm excited to be on board with the SeatGeek team.
"As our world gets more complicated, tools that give consumers simple solutions to make big purchases are going to win in the market, and we believe SeatGeek is that solution for live event ticketing."
The Emmys just took place a few days ago but most of TV's biggest shows don't have time to waste celebrating (or sobbing). Here's a look at where two of the Emmys' most nominated shows are filming right now.
The Good Wife
Julianna Margulies was one of Monday's big winners for lead actress in a drama but she didn't have long to celebrate before she was needed back on the set of The Good Wife. Today Julianna and company are filming on location at 46th St and 5th Ave in New York City.
Orange Is the New Black
Orange Is The New Black walked away with a win for Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes) in the Guest Actress Category but it lost Best Comedy series to five-time winner Modern Family. The loss is largely attributed to its placement in the comedy category raising the argument that a new dramedy-esque category needs to be created for the Emmys.
The loss certainly isn't slowing the show down. You can catch them shooting today around around Blue Hill Plaza and Veterans Memorial Dr, Pearl River, NY.

Comedian Jimmy Kimmel helped actor Aaron Paul celebrate his birthday and Emmy Awards win by decorating his trophy as a member of rap act RUN-DMC. Kimmel also gave Paul two extra Emmys dressed as the other two members during the star's appearance on his U.S. late-night show on Thursday (28Aug14).
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul caused mayhem as he prepared for his historic night at the Emmy Awards on Monday (25Aug14) by staging a Twitter scavenger hunt all over Los Angeles for fans of the show. The actor found keepsakes in a closet and decided to part with them by sharing them among savvy fans - but he had no idea so many people would be interested in his character's license plate, plants, props and scripts from the show.
He explains, "The first clue was: 'Go find R.J. Mitte, aka Walt, Jr., at the IHop (restaurant) in West Hollywood. He'll be eating breakfast and he'll have some signed scripts for you'.
"Literally within 60 seconds, the IHop is just bombarded with just crazy fans and causes so much traffic."
Fans were so keen to get their hands on Paul's random stuff from the show, some were caught cheating.
He explains, "These ladies were camped outside my house and I pulled out and... they kept following me. I walked directly up to their, I took a picture of them and said, 'Shame on you, shame on you! You cannot cheat! You don't win anything!'"
Paul showed off photos from the scavenger hunt during an appearance on chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday (28Aug14), and one featured himself on a park swing, dressed as his Breaking Bad character Jesse Pinkman.
He explained, "This is me in a West Hollywood park. I said, 'Tag, you're it,' on Twitter. 'The first person to tag me in the West Hollywood park (will win the suit I was wearing)'... and I signed it on the back, 'Ya b**ch, Aaron Paul'."
The actor made it extra difficult because when fans arrived at the park, he started running away from them.
Aaron Paul became the youngest actor to win three Emmys when he picked up gold at the prizegiving in Los Angeles on Monday night (25Aug14). Paul, who celebrated his 35th birthday on Wednesday (27Aug14), was honoured for his role in Breaking Bad.
