Emma Stone In Cabaret And Other Famous Sally Bowles

We have our first look at Emma Stone as the iconic title character in Cabaret. Emma will soon be assuming her position in the Broadway revival of the much-loved stage musical, which first premiered in 1968. Stone will play Sally Bowles – a sassy and sexy entertainer in an underground cabaret club during WW2. Stone will join a long line of decorated actresses to don lingerie and fishnets for the coveted part. Perhaps you recognise some of the other famous faces who have portrayed Ms Bowles…

1. Liza Minnelli


Undoubtedly the most famous portrayal of Bowles, Liza played the part in the 1972 film version of the musical… and nabbed an Academy Award for her trouble.

2. Michelle Williams


If her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe wasn’t enough to impress you, perhaps this all-singing and dancing theatre role will convince you of Michelle Williams‘ depth of talent. Stone will replace Williams in the ongoing 2014 Broadway revival of the musical.

3. Judi Dench

Last but not least, a 34 year-old Judi Dench debuted Sally Bowles on London’s prestigious West End in 1968. You might be more familiar with Dench in… oh I don’t know, perhaps one of her seven Oscar-nominated film performances.

4. Natasha Richardson


Natasha featured in the 1998 Broadway revival of Cabaret, and won a Tony Award for Best Actress. After she retired the role, the show continued with other famous faces including Teri Hatcher, Brooke Shields, and Molly Ringwald.

5. Samantha Barks


You might be more familiar with Barks as Eponine from the 2013 film version of Les Miserables. However, originally a stage performer, Barks toured the UK in the part of Sally Bowles in 2008-2009.

5 Of The Best Celebrity Hairstyles

Don’t we love to look at celebrity hairstyles? At their best, they inspire us to take a photo to our own stylist and say, “Make me look like this!” At their worst, they inspire us to say, “Oh no – why did she DO that?”

Here’s a look at five of our favourite celebrity hairstyles and the lovely ladies who wear them. Are you in the mood to try something new?

Michelle Williams’s pixie cut

This actress had some tough competition from Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus, but the adorable blonde has been wearing the style for a while now and always looks totally perfect. We’ve heard that Williams is growing out her hair for a movie role, but can’t help but hope she’ll get her pixie back after it’s over!


Lea Michele’s trendy fringe

The star of Glee sports a long blunt cut with a thick fringe, setting her apart from most current celebs that have lots of layers. The look works for Michele, and plays up her beautiful dark eyes. Other beauties who know how to rock a fringe include Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and Jessica Biel.


Jennifer Lopez’s long layer

J.Lo has had long hair for several years now, but she’s never looked better than she does right now, with her lengthy, flowing layers falling over her shoulders. The layers give this style just the type of versatility this multi-faceted fashion icon needs. Other stars with long, luscious layers are Blake Lively, Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon.


Solange Knowles’s gorgeous curls

Beyonce’s baby sister knows how to get her own individual look by flaunting the natural texture of her short hair in tiny ringlets. Other girls with curls we love include Rihanna, Zoe Saldana and Jennifer Hudson. Curls are at their best when bouncy and shiny.


Cameron Diaz’s bouncy bob

The blonde beauty claimed to be unhappy with her shorter ‘do, but later fell in love with both the look and the easy maintenance. We will probably see Diaz with long hair again soon, but the shorter style is definitely a great look for her. Kiera Knightley and Julianne Hough have also impressed us with their beautiful bobs.

5 Of The Best Very Short Hairstyles

Winter is the perfect time to make a major hairstyle change and opt for the chop. Very short hair looks super chic with a turtleneck and trench coat (and gives you enough time before summer to grow it out if you’re not thrilled with the look).

The decision to chop your long hair off can make you quite apprehensive, particularly as you come to the day of your hair cut and still haven’t made the decision of which style to go for! To help you make that decision, here are five of the best very short hairstyles out there right now.

Pixie cut hairstyle

This is a stylish and eye-catching style for thin, fine hair and is a favourite with celebrities like Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. It will really make your eyes pop, so now is the time to play up your eye makeup with stronger brows and dark lashes.


Short and sleek bob

This is a variation of the pixie cut but with longer and shorter layers to give a sleeker look. This style is perfect for all ages and ideal if you’ve got fine hair and are looking for a more sophisticated, fashionable look as a refreshing change to long, limp locks – just ask Katie Holmes.


Face framing bob

This chic hair cut is short at the back and long enough at the front to frame your face and can suit every face shape, but it particularly compliments a rounder face. For an even more striking look, pair the chop with a bold new hair colour, like Ashlee Simpson’s platinum blonde bob.


Short and messy hairstyle

Messy short styles are among the easiest to maintain, often needing just a quick tousle with some wax – ideal if you’re not a morning person and only have a few minutes to get ready! Short and messy hairstyles also suit different face shapes. Drew Barrymore’s messy bob is both sexy and sophisticated.


Classic bob with fringe 

There are so many variations to the classic bob, though a very short version with a bold fringe is trending once more and really gives body to otherwise flyaway hair. Dannii Minogue’s bob and fringe is one of our favourite hairstyles of all time. It’s more high maintenance than other bob hairstyles, but you can style the fringe in many ways, including a side swept fringe, clipped up away from the face or tousled in soft waves.
