Kate Hudson Joins 'Watch Hunger Stop'
Watch Hunger Stop, Michael Kors’ annual campaign to end hunger, is joined once again by luminous actress and activist Kate Hudson. Earlier this year, Hudson traveled to Cambodia in order to firsthand see how the program – which operates in conjunction with the UN-backed initiative World Food Program (WFP) – feeds and supports children in need. “This is the third year I’ve had the honor of collaborating with Michael on this important cause,” she shared.
Hudson involved herself heavily in the Cambodian communities, getting to know and assist both the families and WFP support staff while she was there. For every special-edition product sold during the Watch Hunger Stop campaign, 100 meals are donated to the WFP. This year, a gorgeous crop of smartwatches are included in the special-edition collection, and so is a limited-edition pair of the ‘Hunger Stop Lon’ sunglasses. You can help this worthy cause by shopping the collection here.
Karlie Kloss to Host a New Talk Show
Girl-next-door supermodel Karlie Kloss will soon be using her charming personality and smarts to woo television viewers. She will host a new talk show called Movie Night with Karlie Kloss, during which she will interview friends like Kendall Jenner, play games with guests, and more. The first episode will air on December 28th on Freeform.
Solange Shades Evening Standard Magazine
Solange shot back at Evening Standard Magazine after its issue featuring her interview and shoot on the cover was clearly photoshopped to remove her braids. The editorial itself was astonishing, so it was unfortunate that the magazine saw fit to alter it, especially in such a way as to defy something Solange has specifically warned about through song. Her caption simply read “dtmh” – meaning Don’t Touch My Hair – otherwise known as the single from her chart-topping album A Seat at the Table. Her perfect clapback subtly addressed the matter in an elegant way.
Phoebe Philo Rumored to Exit Céline
A vacant seat might be opening up in Paris yet again, as recent rumors that Phoebo Philo might be leaving Céline reached fever pitch. Philo has so thoroughly remade Céline in her own image that it’s hard to imagine the label without her. Times are changing here, with Severine Merle announced as the new Chief Executive and the brand finally moving forward with an e-commerce platform.
Céline steadfastly remains one of LVMH’s crown jewels, so it is eager to protect its prosperity. For that reason, the luxury conglomerate is said to be in talks with several noteworthy, but relatively unknown, designers like Natasa Cagalj (who used to work as the Design Director of Stella McCartney) and Michael Rider (an internal hire who has worked as a designer for Céline’s ready-to-wear category).
Lupita Nyong'o Takes On Harvey Weinstein
In a scorching op-ed for The New York Times, Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o reveals Harvey Weinstein’s repeated attempts to coerce her into highly inappropriate situations. She describes her reactions, fear of retaliation, and humiliation in agonizing detail, but ends her essay on a positive note.
“I hope we can form a community where a woman can speak up about abuse and not suffer another abuse by not being believed and instead being ridiculed. That’s why we don’t speak up – for fear of suffering twice, and for fear of being labeled and characterized by our moment of powerlessness. Though we may have endured powerlessness at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, by speaking up, speaking out and speaking together, we regain that power. And we hopefully ensure that this kind of rampant predatory behavior as an accepted feature of our industry dies here and now,” she wrote.
