Halloween Kills ~ A Generational Affair EXCLUSIVE

Halloween Kills ~ A Generational Affair EXCLUSIVE

Halloween Kills is a generational affair. Jamie Lee Curtis attends the red carpet in Los Angeles as her mother’s Psycho character, Marion Crane. The Halloween films spans three generations (more than 40 years) of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.

Jamie Lee Curtis Halloween Kills Red Carpet

Halloween Series Synopsis

Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois to kill again (IMBD).

Series Synopsis

Halloween Kills is the continuing saga of Myers and Strode in the next thrilling chapter of the Halloween Series. It is recommended to watch Halloween 2018 before heading to the theatre, Sean James (Hairstylist to the Stars).

Halloween Kills brings Curtis’ character, Laurie Strode, three generations together for a final confrontation with Myers (masked figure who has haunted Strode for four decades) on Halloween night.

Curtis states regarding the film, “It’s going to be very exciting. People will be shocked. People are going to be agitated by this movie, in a way that I think they’re not expecting. That to me makes a great sequel. . . To all those people that love these movies, Happy Halloween.” (EPK.TV)

Halloween Kills Styling (EXCLUSIVE)

Creating Curtis into Strode takes a team. Sean James, hairstylist for Curtis, takes this powerful beautiful woman from her strong representation of being “true to herself” to Strode, traumatized by Myers for decades.

Red Carpet Styling

Halloween Kills U.S. film screening, at the TCL Chinese Theatre is a costume party. Curtis dresses like her mother, Janet Leigh, in her famous character, Marion Crane, from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film, Psycho. The styling did not miss a beat down to the wig created by James, using FHI products (see discount below). The struggle was real as wigs are in short supply because of the pandemic.

The search for Scarlett Johansson’s wig from the film Hitchcock was not located. The high and low search turns to a golden blonde colored wig. James states, “I could not find a golden wig anywhere. They kept showing me Marilyn Monroe wigs and platinum blonde wigs. Finally one was located that was as close as possible during this time.”

The wig was the wrong cut and texture. The next process was to cut and style the wig into the bubble (even Barbie has a wig that is the bubble style) style of her mother. James did his magic on the wig with FHI Heat Stylus High Altitude and FHI HEAT Platform Bounce Pro Curler to create the perfect look that Janet Leigh inspired in the 1960s.

The red carpet creation is completed with a bloody shower curtain.

Past Movie Styling

James has been doing Curtis’ hair since 1995. Curtis brought her daughter into Fred Segal Salon. She asked for James to do her daughter’s hair. Soon Curtis asked James, “What would you do with my hair?” James states, “I suggested we chop it all off. Then we had different versions of her hair.”

Halloween H2O we brought hair color to the shorter style. This change was a concern for Curtis. She was doing Activia Yogurt at the same time. It is important to stay true and honest to her audience and fans. Curtis was honest about her hair color. She was on Oprah stating the way Hollywood distorts imperfect beauty. The More Magazine article shows all the secrets of styling, stylus, and hairstyles as well as what Hollywood is and the falsification of people’s image.

The color change was a turn from her natural hair color. Making coloring difficult Curtis does not sit still for more than 20 minutes. The concept of processing color every three weeks to cover the natural gray was absurd to her. She hates having her hair colored.

Halloween Kills Press

James says, “It is so exciting doing all of the press for the movie. Going to Venice Film Festival with Curtis for the world premiere, James Corden, Kelly Clarkson, and Rachel Ray Show. It is wonderful watching Curtis shine with this new movie. I cannot wait for everyone to see it. It is a fantastic horror film. It is really a wonderful reveal of the town of Haddonefield, Illinois. I can hardly wait for the third part, Halloween Kills.

Excited to see this movie this weekend. You see your local theatre listings or go to Peacock TV for streaming options. Post your movie review here.

Academy Awards ~ Winners, Fun, & Fashion

Academy Awards ~ Winners, Fun, & Fashion

Academy Awards brings back the red carpet and the award show in person. The night is filled with winners, fun, and fashion. This is different and strange from the traditional Oscars®. The locations is at Union Station not the Dolby Theatre and only 200 guests in appearance.

Academy Award Red Carpet

The men rocked this red carpet this year. Many took the traditional black tux but some took a non-tradtional look with colorful suits including one set of nominees wearing similar gold and black suits.

There is a lot of large puffy sleeves on the red carpet fashion. This is such a joyous time after a year of very little fashion shows and red carpet. The looks are personal and styled for a dramatic look. This was a great time to get dressed up in glam after a year of leisure wear and masks. Yeah for the lipstick, missed seeing lipstick this last year.

The Oscars® this year was a bit off and different from tradition. The times have changes and shifted since COVID-19. Film was an industry struck down but The Academy Awards took on the challenge and created an event that was elegant and entertaining in a time where it is much needed. My favorite films this year was The Octopus Teacher and The United States vs. Billie Holiday. What was your favorite film from the last year? Post your answer here.

CHICKEN POT PIE Wolfgang Oscars 4Chion Lifestyle

Chicken Pot Pie

(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck, adapted from “Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy,” Rutledge Hill Press, 2004)

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch chunks

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

1/2 pound organic red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 pound organic carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1 sprig thyme

1 bay leaf

1 cup white wine

2 cups organic chicken stock

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/4 cup dry sherry

1/2 cup shelled or frozen peas

Approximately 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, defrosted following package instructions

1 cage-free egg

Ingredients

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper, and toss in a mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of the flour until evenly coated. In a large skillet over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the chicken pieces, reduce the heat slightly, and sauté, turning them occasionally, until light golden and thoroughly cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. sing a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter to the pan, then add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and sauté until they begin to look glossy and bright, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, and bay leaf, and sauté, just until the vegetables begin to color slightly, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Add the wine, turn up the heat, stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits, and simmer until the liquid reduces by about half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and the 1 cup of cream. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer briskly until the liquid reduces by about half again and is thick and creamy about 15 minutes. Remove the sprig of thyme and the bay leaf. Stir in the reserved chicken pieces and the sherry. Stir together the butter and remaining flour and stir this paste into the mixture. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer to 4 large individual ovenproof 2-cup soup bowls, 4 ramekins of the same size, or a 2-quart baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is cold, at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make sure the puff pastry is no thicker than 1/4 inch. With the tip of a sharp knife cut the pastry into 4 circles that will overhang the rim of the serving bowls or ramekins by about half an inch; for a single large baking dish, cut 4 circles that will cover its top, or use one large sheet.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and the remaining 1 tablespoon cream to make an egg wash. Brush the tops and outsides of the rims of the bowls. Place the bowls, ramekins, or baking dish on a baking tray and place the puff pastry circles on top, pressing them gently over the sides of the dishes. Pierce the tops with the tip of a paring knife. Brush the top of the pastry with egg wash. Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake until the filling is bubbling hot and the pastry is a deep golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve hot.
