If you're a pop culture junkie, you're most likely obsessed with both movies and music. And when those two elements intersect, it's a beautiful thing! That's why this crop of films, which revolve around both fictional and real musicians, is a special one (plus, it goes without saying that the soundtrack is always a winner). Inspired by this week's release of Country Strong, we've made our own list of the most memorable music movies.
Around this time of year, my calendar starts to fill up with weddings, which also means I've been hearing all about the proposals for a while now. Inevitably this leads me to think about cute movie proposals, like the one in Bride Wars when Anne Hathaway's character finds a ring in a fortune cookie. It's not a good movie, but that part is sweet.
And while the romance was doomed, I still think Patrick Dempsey's proposal to Reese Witherspoon's character in Sweet Home Alabama is totally romantic. Alone at Tiffany's surrounded by sparkles? Awesome. Another adorable movie proposal involving Ms. Witherspoon comes from Walk the Line in which Joaquin Phoenix's Johnny Cash corners his lady love on stage and tells her, "Now I've asked you 40 different ways and it's time you come up with a fresh answer. . . . I'm asking you to marry me. I love you, June. . . . You're my best friend. Marry me." The cutest!
Now it's your turn: what movie proposals do you love?
By now I am sure you've all seen this musical hit from last year. In this film, our American Beauty traded in her famous golden tresses for rich dark locks and transformed herself to resemble the American singer June Carter Cash.
Her hair and makeup were gorgeous and when the movie was released I got many requests to help y'all find the perfect pink lipstick shades she wore in the movie. Below are two different powerful pink lip looks from the movie; one evening and one day. Enjoy!
For a more sweetheart pink color, I think you'll fall in love with this darling color called Love It! by Lancome. It sells for $20 and is from their Color Design LipColor line.
