Calling, all The Devil Wears Prada fans!
Can you quote Miranda Priestly like your life depends on it? Then you need to know about this opportunity. The cast of the iconic 2006 fashion movie—Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci, and Emily Blunt—are getting back together again for a reunion of sorts to benefit the Lollipop Theater Network (a charity that brings entertainment to kids undergoing hospital treatment.) The one-off opportunity will give two lucky fans (with deep pockets) the opportunity to partake in a phone call with the actors and ask them whatever their heart desires—bidding, already at $8,500, is open now until August 3. Gird your loins!!!
LACMA Art+Film Gala announces 2021 honorees, to be presented by Gucci
The worlds of art and film are colliding once again—the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has announced the honorees of its 10th annual gala, to be held on November 6 at a venue yet to be determined. The honorees include portrait artists Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley—who’ve been commissioned for portraits of both Barack and Michelle Obama—as well as esteemed filmmaker Steven Spielberg. In continuation of its partnership with the art museum, Gucci will sponsor the event, whilst celebrating an anniversary of its own: its centennial! Following the event, which has been championed and co-chaired by Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio since its commencement in 2011, the Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama and Barack Obama paintings by Sherald and Wiley, respectively, will be on display at The Obama Portraits Tour from November 7 to January 2. As previously reported, Gucci will also host a fashion show in conjunction with the event.
Marc Jacobs has some news…
Designer and master #OOTD Instagram poster Marc Jacobs took to his favorite social media platform earlier today to post a surprise photo-op. Instead of his typical mirror selfies, Jacobs posed in a surgical head wrap and a medical mask, with his signature pouted lip and side-facing profile face underneath. The occasion? A facelift, it seems. Jacobs even captioned the post “#f*ckgravity.”Watch this space!
