trouble with extras

I was one of the brides in that scene. They had to shoot that scene about 12 times because every woman there wanted to be the one who caught the bouquet so she would be in the movie so every time Rene Z. threw the bouquet, it would be ripped to shreds. In fact the women where it landed would even start beating each other up. They used up their reserve bouquets and had to take a break to go get new ones hence different colored roses. Notice at the end you don't see anyone catching the bouquet. Sometimes being an extra is like being in a war zone.

~How to Dress Like... Isla Fisher

How to Dress Like Isla Fisher
By eHow Fashion, Style & Personal Care Editor

Isla Fisher is an actress who has been in movies such as "Wedding Crashers" and "The Lookout." Her fashion is described as funky and fun. She combines old world glamor with modern trends. This guide can help you find ways to dress like her.


Step 1
Select simple dresses when you want a casual look. Isla Fisher is often seen in dresses and skirts rather than pants. She looks nice, but is still comfortable.

Step 2
Put together an outfit that mimics her casual style. An example would be the Self Tie Summer dress from Staxs with the Rosebud Lace Cap Sleeve jacket from Jacqui E. For accessories, wear Pulp Paris shoes from Hannah and Rhodim Plate Cross necklace from Dotti.

Step 3
Get a dark print skirt and a white shirt. Wear these with a long black overcoat and brown shoes. She wore this outfit with a brown purse.

Step 4
Copy her red carpet look. Isla Fisher wears low-cut fitted dresses that show off her curves. She pulls off a look that's both sexy and elegant.

Step 5
Build an outfit based on one she's worn. This can be done with a Basic slip from Supre, Tiered Ghost skirt from Staxs and Sachi Delfine shoes from Overland Footwear. Wear the skirt high on your waist.

Step 6
Go out in a dark-blue gown. Isla Fisher wore a dress that had a halter-style top and flowing bottom. This was accessorized with a silver clutch, diamond drop earrings and a pair of white-gold, diamond caviar bangles. A cheaper option is jewelry made with cubic zirconium.

Step 7
Wear a purple dress with gold accents. She wore this to the "Wedding Crashers" premiere in New York with a gold bracelet and matching clutch.

I left my heart in San Francisco Chocolate Panini
Yield: 5 servings (2 sandwiches per serving)

* 8 ounce(s) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Ghirardelli Baking Bar

* 1 18-inch Sour Dough baguette with flaky crust
* 3 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Slice the bread on the diagonal into slides 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick; there should be at least 20 slices of bread. Break the chocolate into 1/2 ounce squares. Butter one side of each slice of bread with 1/2 teaspoon of butter and make a sandwich, butter side out, using a piece and a half of chocolate per sandwich.

Heat a large pan over medium heat and, in batches, cook each sandwich until golden brown, pressing down with a spatula. Flip the sandwiches and cook the second side until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Keep warm in the oven.

The sandwiches can also be made in a panini machine following the manufacturer's instructions.
