Rosie Huntington-Whiteley flaunts her washboard abs in a sparkly bra as she and Doutzen Kroes lead the FROW at Versace's Milan Fashion Week show

British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley turned up at the Versace Spring/Summer 2020 Milan Fashion Week Show, and brought a glam style statement with her. The mother-of-one, 32, led the FROW fashion clad in a glitzy ensemble from the Versace SS2020 Collection and wore a sparkly black bra to go with it.

Rosie's slinky pant suit matched with the glittery low-cut bra, and the two-piece suit set put her washboard abs on show. Leaving little to the imagination, the ensemble was a sexy and sultry one, and Rosie oozed off drama and sex appeal in her all-black style.

Pouting for the cameras as she posed at the event, the model wore a glamorous smoky eye and had her blonde hair done in a sleek and center-parted style. A chunky gold necklace rested on her toned neckline, and the model completed her style with a pair of pointed black pumps.

13TH ANNUAL NYC GREEK FILM FESTIVAL RUNS THURSDAY OCTOBER 17TH THROUGH WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 23RD, 2019

The 13th Annual NYC Greek Film Festival is happening October 17th - 23rd and this year's schedule includes some of the best greek infused short and feature-length independent films from around the world, as well as several fantastic films not associated with greek culture, being shown at the historic Florence Gould Hall (FIAF) located at 55 East 59th St, NYC www.fiaf.org

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THE FESTIVAL HERE: https://vimeo.com/356283597

Opening night kicks off Thursday, October 17th with the opening ceremony and the unveiling of the digital exhibition “The Legend of Alexander the Great as Ancient Greek and Byzantine Legacy” at FIAF Gallery, followed by the screening of the film “In This Land Nobody Knew How to Cry” and a reception at the Tinker Auditorium. The digital exhibition will run until Sunday, Oct. 20th.

“This year, apart from the Greek features, documentaries and shorts, the festival launches a new section with international productions of Greek interest -meaning films with Greek elements no matter the country of their origin. Furthermore, a purely international section of short films from all over the world will be introduced, at the online edition of NYCGRFF only.” said NYC Greek Film Festival Executive Director Maria Tzompanaki.

The festival also has the honor of presenting, in collaboration with notable Greek archeologists and in world premiere, a digital exhibition of listings from the sublime history of the world’s greatest Greek of all times: Alexander the Great. An expo already sheltered at the Greek Institute of Venice. In the 14th century, Alexios Komninos, the emperor of Trabzon, commissions a manuscript with Alexander the Great’ s recounting of events for his private library. Compiled by the era’s most able copyists, the manuscript is also enriched with 250 miniatures narrating the entire life course of the magnificent warrior. The main goal of this unique initiative is to showcase the Macedonian ruler who spread the Greek spirit and the Greek culture throughout the then known world, to portray the man who was loved and honored like no other Greek. Within this context, an exhibition of Alexander the Great-themed engravings, carved by important artists from “XOTARIS” Gallery, will also take place.

NYC Greek Film Festival closes its 13th year on Wednesday, October 23rd at the Florence Gould Hall Theater with the closing ceremony followed by the concert “Greek Female New Yorkers Perform Songs from Greek Composers” presented by Maro Theodoraki. Reception to follow at Le Skyroom.

Some of the films of special note being shown throughout the fest include Still River, Pause, The Mountain Tears, Nia on Vacation, The Waiter, Marble Homeland, Clementine and A Tree Remembers.

The Waiter and Nia on Vacation are specifically targeted to younger audiences and students. Sports fans will most enjoy Akra and Crete Arising, religion-oriented people will like Filothei, the Jewish community will want to see Romaniotes and the aforementioned A Tree Remembers and history buffs will love The New Greek Americans. Exarcheia, The Campfire Project and We Are Not Together will appeal to an audience with a strong social conscience; and older viewers will relate to In this Land Nobody Learned to Cry, Epiphany, Still River and Pause.

Past attendees to the festival include actors/actresses/writers/directors such as George Kimoulis, a famous Greek personality in theater and cinema,  among others. This year there is a special tribute to Nickos Perakis, an internationally known Greek director, who will be in attendance. In addition, this year’s festival has also organized a special tribute to the female gender, and more precisely to the topics of Women’s Abuse in modern society.

Additionally, most of the NYC Greek Film Festival film lineup are accompanied by Q & Answer sessions with cast and celebrity guests. Learn more about festival activities at www.nycgreekfilmfestival.com

William Ragsdale of 'Fright Night' Stars in New Psychological Thriller 'When We Dance The Music Dies'

Moviegoers with a passion for psychological thrillers will welcome the return of “Fright Night” star William Ragsdale in director Anthony de Lioncourt’s new film, “When We Dance the Music Dies,” which takes moviegoers along on a riveting ride that will have them questioning the very nature of reality. Those film lovers are in for a special treat, if they also happen to share de Lioncourt’s nostalgic fondness for the 1980s horror classic, ”Fright Night!”

Watch the trailer on Vimeo here: https://vimeo.com/279179477

The new film features William Ragsdale, the star of that 1985 movie, in his return to the thriller genre that first brought him widespread fame. Eric Roberts also brings his intensity to this new film, following performances that have earned him three Golden Globe Award nominations (“King of the Gypsies,” “Star 80,” and “Runaway Train”) and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor (“Runaway Train”) during his long and celebrated career. Rounding out the lead cast is Catherine Mary Stewart, who also developed a large and dedicated following thanks to her work in two 1980s films that took moviegoers into the unknown – “The Last Starfighter” and “Night of the Comet.”

IF INTERESTED, READ MORE IN THIS RECENT REVIEW OF THE FILM:

In writing the screenplay for “When We Dance the Music Dies,” Anthony de Lioncourt builds on the reality-distorting psychological themes that he featured in his two previous indie films, and he says he was inspired by a mysterious recent incident in the news that seemed to blur the line between reality and the supernatural. The story of the frantic search of a father [Tom Walton, portrayed by William Ragsdale] or his college-age daughter [Audrey Walton, portrayed by Theresa Moriarty], who vanishes under mysterious experiences – and the twists and turns of his journey leads him to question his own sanity. The curious events portrayed in the film are inspired by a true story that captivated de Lioncourt – the odd circumstances surrounding the disappearance and tragic death of a young woman by the name of Elisa Lam.

As detectives worked to learn what had happened to the young woman, they found surveillance video of Ms. Lam acting bizarrely in an elevator in a Los Angeles hotel. When they saw that she had pressed every button in the elevator, in an apparently haphazard pattern, investigators found that Ms. Lam and her friends were engaged in an activity known as “The Elevator Game” – an urban myth that originated in Asia and South Korea which promised those who played the game that they could “access an alternate dimension” by pressing the buttons in an elevator in the “correct” sequence, and exiting on a particular floor. Ultimately, Ms. Lam’s body was found in the water tower atop that Los Angeles hotel, and the way that she met her demise is still unclear.

In “When We Dance the Music Dies,” the young woman’s father’s investigation leads him to an eccentric cult leader [Clayton Riggs, the cult leader, portrayed by Eric Roberts] who has persuaded the members of his group that they all originated from “another dimension,” and – through their leader – they could “return there.” Tom Walton’s desperation is shared by his wife Helen [portrayed by Catherine Mary Stewart] as his search takes one unexpected turn after another.

Filmgoers who give themselves to this psychological journey as the story unfolds, are in the hands of a master director who has long been fascinated by how a “tenuous grasp of reality” can be captured on film. Just as he was inspired by the strange disappearance of Elisa Lam, Anthony de Lioncourt is also intrigued by recent work in the scientific community that suggests there is “binary code” in the universe. (In other words, the “reality” we are experiencing may not be the “only” reality. Yes, we may soon be entering “The Matrix!”)

As those who have enjoyed de Lioncourt’s first two films — “The Protokon” (2015) and “Thorns for Flowers” (2016) – can attest, there is a “psychedelic side” to his work, as the director describes it. He says he is fascinated by the way our memories distort reality and the way the line between dreams and our waking state is always a bit blurred. Like iconic directors in the history of cinema like Akira Kurosawa and Alain Resnais have explored in their classic films, the nature of reality is much more subjective than we might like to believe, and this is an important theme in “When We Dance the Music Dies.”

For this new film, de Lioncourt has “worn many hats” – not only as writer and director, but also as cinematographer and soundtrack composer. One major source of joy in being a filmmaker, he says, has been the opportunity to visualize communicate a character’s state of mind. “Because I direct and also do the cinematography,” he says, “I get to really set the mood and the tone and the atmosphere. I feel that’s really important, especially with this story, because it has its supernatural aspects as well as a strong dramatic tension.”

“When We Dance the Music Dies” also marks the third film that de Lioncourt has directed in partnership with Mark Mattson, who served as executive producer on this project. The duo began working together when Mattson served first as de Lioncourt’s model for some scary photos. When they began collaborating on their first feature-length film, “The Protokon” – Mattson was once again cast as the killer. Despite a tight budget, the warm reception to that film, and to their follow-up effort (also a psychological thriller), paved the way for their third film, the first one produced with a SAG cast and union-sanctioned crew.
