Inspiring Women (2018)

The women who I think are inspiring this year

An inspiring woman, in my outlook, is a woman who is tenacious and attractive; there is something captivating about a woman who is like that because it is not easy to be so: a woman must constantly watch what she eats, always be impeccably dressed and always put herself plus her interests  first even when circumstances in life gets challenging. Another kind of woman who I think is really inspiring is a woman in love who does not obey a man she is in love with nearly all the time because that is what a housewife would normally do; it’s not incredible when a woman chooses to be unliberated in the contemporary age.

This year, the women who I found to be inspiring are: Rachel Weisz, Keira Knightley, Constance Wu, Anne-Marie, Gemma Arterton, Juliette Binoche, Anna Kendrick, Mia Wasikowska, Joanna Kulig and Anya-Taylor Joy. I found these ten celebrities to be inspiring because of a film they did recently or a music album they released which was great. Nearly all of the celebrities are actresses and they come from many countries across the world, such as England, Poland and France.

The roles which a couple of these actresses played on-screen (for example: Keira Knightley and Rachel Weisz) were that of tenacious and nice-looking women and those are reasons why I found those actresses to be inspiring; those type of female characters are incredible and these actresses act and bring them to life on film. Also, the romantic heroines whom a couple of the other actresses essayed on-screen (for example: Mia Wasikowska and Juliette Binoche) were interesting because they were liberated female characters who sometimes also made the experience of falling in love (or having affairs) look worthwhile, even when it was fraught with problems.

The red carpet at the Venice Film Festival was a fine display of undiluted glamour

The Venice Film Festival was held from August 29 to September 8. At the film festival, films had competed against each other for the Golden Bear which is a leading prize awarded to a film. This year the Golden Bear was awarded to a Mexican film, Roma which was directed by Alfonso Cuarón; other films which were a part of the selection for the competition included the Hungarian film Sunset, the German film Never Look Away and the British film Peterloo.

Celebrities who had attended the film festival included: Natalie Portman, Irina Shayk, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Ryan Gosling, Stacy Martin plus Naomi Watts and on they had appeared on the red carpet they dressed in, arguably, some of the finest clothes in the world. Among the colors which were displayed on the red carpet were pink, white, black and blue; some of the labels which the stars wore included Prada, Christian Dior, Philosophy do Lorenzo, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu. My favorite look was the one which was sported by Natalie Portman: Natalie looked ravishing in a long and golden-colored sequined dress by Gucci; the dress had a provocative neckline and Portman had accessorized her look with a pair of black shoes and a stunning clutch.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

The story behind the romantic relationship between Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

Last month, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin got engaged; Justin Bieber is a Canadian music artist and Hailey Baldwin is an American model – she is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin (Crossing the Bridge, Fall Time and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas). Justin and Hailey met for the first time in 2009 but romantic rumors between the celebrities did not begin circulating until December 2014; both the stars at the time had denied the rumors.

Since then, it seemed quite unlikely that Justin and Hailey will romantically get together – they only either seemed to share a civil or a sour relationship with each other. But at the beginning of 2016, shockingly just the opposite happened: Justin and Hailey kissed to celebrate the New Year – Baldwin stated at the time that she and Bieber were not in a monogamous relationship. And it wasn’t until in June this year when rumors again began circulating that Bieber and Baldwin must be dating; the romance only got confirmed when Justin proposed to Hailey in the Bahamas.

It is unclear just when exactly the two stars are going to tie the knot. In my outlook, what makes the celebrity relationship so interesting is that it is the story of two young people who are in a romantic relationship even though it sometimes very strongly seemed as if that was never going to happen; I think that is what also makes the love story between Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber a very unusual love story.

The purple carpet at the Teen Choice Awards this year was occasionally a good display of a diluted type of glamour

The Teen Choice Awards was held on August 12, 2018 and the fashion which was displayed at the purple carpet that was rolled out was occasionally glamorous but the type which is rather diluted in nature. A whole host of stars attended the ceremony, such as Lucy Hale, Nina Dobrev, Camila Mendes, Lauren Jauregui and Maia Mitchell. Films which won on the night included The Greatest Showman (Choice Drama Movie), Coco (Choice Fantasy Movie) and Incredibles 2 (Choice Summer Movie), whilst stars which won included Chris Hemsworth for Thor: Ragnarok (Choice Sci-Fi Movie Actor) and Zac Efron for The Greatest Showman (Choice Drama Movie Actor).

Among the colors displayed on the purple carpet were black, green, yellow, pink and white; some of the fashion labels which the stars wore included Alberta Ferretti, Louis Vuitton and Giambattista Valli. In my outlook, plenty of the stars that attended the awards ceremony really needed to display a much more creative effort with glamour and style because not every one of the looks which were demonstrated did so. My favorite look of the night was the one exhibited by Olivia Holt: she wore a green colored dress by Daniele Carlotte which had a glimmering feel to it; Olivia accessorized the look with a pair of almost equally glimmering sandals by Nicholas Kirkwood.

Ryan Gosling Damages Karaoke For Dave Matthews

Ryan Gosling’s ability to do karaoke well discouraged Dave Matthews once

Recently, in an appearance by the frontman of Dave Matthews Band, Dave Matthews, at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the American music artist divulged that Ryan Gosling had damaged karaoke for him. Dave shared that it had happened when the two stars had gone to a karaoke bar located in New York: Dave hated that Ryan was so great with karaoke when he went up on stage and sang.

Dave further remarked on that moment that he didn’t have a moment to spare for karaoke and it’s not entertaining to watch Gosling sing so amazingly on stage. What a complete tragedy: Matthews seems to be a little bit jealous of Gosling’s talent over karaoke. Matthews has actually never done karaoke in his life and because of the experience he has had with Gosling, it might just be a pipe dream to want to have him do it.

 

Paris Hilton x Boohoo

At Boohoo, very soon you can buy a piece of the glamour associated with Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton and the British online shopping destination, Boohoo, have come together for a fashion collection which is set to hit stores later today. The collection comprises seventy pieces and it is inspired by the clothes she wore during her earliest days of fame. Hilton’s first taste of fame came at the beginning of the new millennium, during which she could be spotted in midriff baring ensembles and beautiful dresses. So to have something like that launch at Boohoo almost seems like a dream has come true. Prints and metallic colors feature in the collection and there are range of items in it, from a jumpsuit to a snake print dress.

The campaign pictures for the collection were all atmospheres of total bling: photographed at a Beverly Hills home, it also included her two cute dogs. You can catch a great glimpse of what the collection will offer from the campaign photographs and it does seem that one can expect the fashion items to be very nice replicas of the brilliant clothes which can always be spotted on the American socialite. Paris was even quite particular over how the collection was done, like with the colors included for it; the clothes from the collection will be cheap too.

The red carpet at the Tony Awards was a breathtaking display of beautiful clothes

The 72nd Annual Tony Awards was held recently and the occasion saw a plethora of well-dressed names in performance walk down the red carpet in various styles. The clothes which really stood out were all voluminous gowns – it created a really dreamy atmosphere against a backdrop beautifully decked out with flowers in numerous shades of pink. Otherwise, the environment clothes-wise was purely glamorous, with a display that included bright colors, sequins and interesting prints.

The night honored the best in Broadway: Andrew Garfield, Tony Shalhoub and Nathan Lane were among the honorees; also, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two was shockingly chosen as both the best directed theatrical work and the best play of the year. Stars which showed their faces on the red carpet for the big night included Sara Bareilles, Kerry Washington Condola Rashad, Tina Fey, Lauren Ambrose, Matt Bomer and Taylor Louderman.
