Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman Tie the Knot
Although Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman are intensely private about their relationship – only revealing their engagement in October 2018 – they were spotted heading into their rehearsal dinner over the weekend, which meant wedding bells lie ahead. And naturally, the stylish bride eschewed tradition, sporting bike shorts and an embroidered overlay by bridal label Danielle Frankel by Danielle Hirsch. The two married at Lenny Kravitz’s private estate over the weekend, and of course the core cast of Big Little Lies was there in support of their fellow member of the “Monterey Five”.
Kim Kardashian Stirs Up Controversy
Kim Kardashian is embroiled in yet another controversy, this time over the trademark for her new shapewear brand, Kimono. No stranger to accusations of cultural appropriation, she experienced fierce backlash regarding the brand’s name. Online commenters were outraged that she had trademarked the name, but Kardashian was quick to clarify: “Filing a trademark is a source identifier that will allow me to use the word for my shapewear and intimates line but does not preclude or restrict anyone, in this instance, from making kimonos or using the word kimono in reference to the traditional garment.”
Still, that didn’t stop mayor of Kyoto, Daisaku Kadokawa, from publishing an open letter to Kardashian, which asks that she “re-consider your decision of using the name Kimono in your trademark” and further educates her on the garments significance in Japanese culture.
Karl Lagerfeld to Launch Beauty
One of the last projects that Karl Lagerfeld approved before his passing was a new makeup range with L’Oreal Paris via his eponymous brand. The affordably priced line will debut online on September 20, and then globally on September 27 during Paris Fashion Week. We’re touched to still be able to access something he helped create.
Charlie’s Angels Embraces Female Empowerment
The Charlie’s Angels franchise is getting an all-star reboot, this time thanks to Elizabeth Banks. The actress not only wrote the screenplay and directed the film, but she also co-stars in it as Bosley. Naturally, Banks puts a feminist spin on the challenge of remaking the film according to more current social standards – the trailer literally begins with Kristen Stewart saying, “Women can do anything.”
Other stars include Ella Balinska and Naomi Scott, who just played Princess Jasmine in Aladdin. The movie also features a brand new song co-performed by Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey. The release is set for November 2019.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas Wed (Again)
Following their surprise civil ceremony in Las Vegas, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and popstar Joe Jonas held their real wedding nuptials at Château de Tourreau in Provence, France. The two met on Instagram before meeting in person, but according to them both, it was love at first sight. Guests included Priyanka Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas, Ashley Graham, and many others.
