The Oscars 2015 Red Carpet (+Results)

The Oscars this year was yet another mostly predictable affair. All actor and actress wins were consistent all awards season. Eddie Redmayne, Julianne Moore, Patricia Arquette and JK Simmons... Boyhood unfortunately did not win any other film awards despite its 6 nominations. The big winner of the night was Grand Budapest Hotel and Birdman.

Disney's Big Hero 6 won best animation for a second year in a row, succeeding last year's smash hit 'Frozen'. 

Best dressed this year goes to Scarlett Johansson in her emerald gown, Keira Knightley in her Valentino maternity couture and Emma Stone in Elie Saab.

Scarlett Johansson covers W Magazine (March 2015)

Shot my Mert Alas, Scarlett Johansson graces the cover of the March edition of W Magazine. With 2014 being a life changing year for Johansson, having recently given birth to daughter Rose and gotten married, as well as being in almost every movie last year, most notibly for 'Lucy' and 'Captain America 2' and 'Under the Skin'.

In the interview, she also speaks about seeking out Pixar for a voice role after her critically acclaimed performance in 'Her'- which I can only hope they do pick her for something!

Johansson has also recently started a girl band called the Singles, with Este Haim, releasing track 'Candy'... to much controversy and scepticism. Nonetheless, the star proves to be adventurous!

The Walkie Talkie/Sky Garden Photography

I recently visited the 'Sky Garden' atop the much controversial 'Walkie Talkie' building or 20 Fenchurch Street for its newly opened rooftop garden with accompanying bar and restaurant. After a routine security check, you were free to wander to the top via lift. And it was just that. Free.

The view that greeted you as you reached the top was quite mesmerising and an obvious choice to put the bar. As the sun set and city lit up, it was a truly unbeatable view. Being a hater, I was rather glad that this building itself was out of view from all of my cityscape shots. Despite the shard boasting the highest observation deck, to be free from seeing this building seemed more appealing, as the Shard looked like an object of beauty at night.

Unfortunately for the Sky Garden, it was a vast expanse of open space, more akin to an airport terminal that was for the most part, empty. Expecting crowds and ushers all over the place, there was none. We could freely sit for hours and hours if we wanted. We did not. 

After exhausting all four views and observing that the viewing deck itself was barren, we passed the buzzing bar to the elevator back to the ground.

Taylor Swift 'Style' Official Music Video

The video to Taylor Swift's third single from record breaking new album '1989' is arguably one of her most visually creative.

Directed by Kyle Newman, 'Style' (rumoured to be about Harry Styles) sees Swift on a crumbling romance opposite co-star Dominic Sherwood, with beautiful use of double exposure, mirrors and projection.

Avril Lavigne 'Give You What You Like' Official Music Video

Since Avril Lavigne's last video went viral for all the wrong reasons 9 months ago, the singer has kept a low profile, and her latest video for 'Give You What You Like' from her self titled album nearly slipped under my radar.

The song is part of the soundtrack to the upcoming Lifetime movie 'Babysitter's Black Book' and the clips featured almost overshadow the Canadian singer.

Lavigne is also reportedly about to release new song 'Fly' ahead of the Special Olympics- the song which was written years ago but failed to make it on her past two albums.

'Ex Machina' Film Review

Alex Garland, writer of '28 Days Later' and 'Never Let Me Go', embarks on his directorial debut with 'Ex Machina', a slick, gripping and beautifully made film that explores contemporary themes and is the best movie I've seen so far this year.

Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a talented programmer, wins the staff lottery and jets to his boss Nathan's (Oscar Isaac) rural escape for a week's break only to discover that he's been selected to be part of an experiment. Nathan's latest AI prototype called Ava (Alicia Vikander) undergoes the Turing test with Caleb's help with matters complicated when Caleb falls in love with Ava.
