From red carpets to faces to watch, this week saw a whole host of fashionable happenings. It was the week that:
The worlds of fashion and film collided; in an extreme manner. The Golden Globes kicked it all off, with their utterly lustworthy red carpet looks and hilarious Brit banter- Emma Thompson, we’re referring to you. Delightful. A night of undeniable glitz and intoxicating glam, we’re still suffering from the post-event come down; big congratulations go to all of the night’s winners, nominees and even the sore losers… With Oscar nominations following in much the same vein, we’re expecting to see a lot more of the Usual Suspects.
Speaking of which… 12 Years A Slave star Lupita N’Yongo seems to be doing her utmost to impress the hard to win over fashion jury of late; and boy, it’s working. Her Golden Globes look was an undeniable stroke of genius, whilst her Dazed and Confused cover will earn her some serious style points. With her combination of strikingly beautiful looks, crazy amounts of talent and serious sartorial punch, we plan to keep a very close eye on this one.
Further fashion/ film hook-ups in the land of the high street this week, as it was announced that Dakota Fanning is to front the latest Uniqlo campaign, alongside musician Tom Odell. Aww, cuties!
Debatable fashion icon Kristen Stewart is hot on the heels of a comeback in the aftermath of affair-gate; she’s set to star opposite J-Law other half and all round Brit wonder-child, Nicholas Hoult, in a new movie based on George Orwell’s acclaimed 1984. “Equals”, a love story of “epic proportions”, reportedly moved Lawrence to tears- in spite of this, she turned the part down. Nothing more dangerous than mixing business with pleasure, now… clever girl.
But could she Run The World?
It would appear Queen Bey is not so sure. The former champion of girl power joined the likes of Eva Longoria, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Jennifer Garner in writing for The Shriver Report this week on the state of gender equality; or lack thereof. A definite page turner…
And it seems these ladies aren’t the only ones after a sense of equality; this week saw Elite Model Management pay out the biggest settlement to date to former interns who worked for the company full time without pay. Totalling over $450,000, the pay out will be see more than 100 former interns receive a minimum compensation of $700. The case is merely one in a long line of protests against such actions which have led to several American fashion companies cancelling their internship programmes. About time.
