Alice + Olivia’s Stacey Bendet calls Kim Kardashian ‘an incredible influence’

Originally published on AOL.com

alice + olivia’s creative director, Stacey Bendet has been in the business for well over a decade.

However, dressing virtual avatars for Kim Kardashian’s app game is something she’d never thought she’d do since founding her fashion label back in 2002. The duo recently collaborated to bring alice + olivia’s fall 2018 collection to the highly successful game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.”

“It was so fun dressing the avatars, I’ve never really done that. I’m so used to fitting things on people and I had to re-train my brain on how it works, but it was so fun to do!” Bendet told AOL at the launch of her new collaboration with imPress nails.

The Kardashians and the 39-year-old designer have a longstanding friendship. The famous sisters have been big fans of the contemporary label for years, and Kourtney is often pictured hanging with Bendet.

“I adore her! I’ve been friends with her and her sister Kourtney for a long time and I just think that she is such an incredible influence and icon. She’s also this incredibly fun, smart and kind woman. It was an honor to be able to do something for her game,” Bendet told AOL.

Kim, who has built her astonishing empire partly thanks to Instagram, isn’t alone in crediting the social media platform for success. When we asked Stacey how the digital space has changed since she first started in the fashion game, she emphasized that Instagram has allowed her to be in control of her brand.

“Instagram! It has allowed every brand to be their own magazine and media vehicle to communicate with their customers and to find new customers. It’s made every brand their own marketing machine. At the same time, its democratized fashion in this crazy and insane way because the people choose and the people have a voice. It’s not like a magazine being like ‘Oh this is what’s in this year.’ The people decide and I think that’s amazing.”

Rebel Wilson is solving the issue of inclusive sizing one studded jacket at a time

Originally published on AOL.com

Rebel Wilson is breaking boundaries.

Aside from her iconic movie roles, the 38-year-old actress has invested years in figuring out the magic of the plus-size fashion market. With her Rebel Wilson X Angels fashion line available at major retailers such as Nordstrom and Dia & Co, Wilson knows exactly what her fans want. 

“It was important [to launch the clothing line] because I am plus size. Sometimes I [range] 16 to 18, which is the exact average size of the American women. What I always found weird is why when you go into a store, 90 percent of the clothes were not plus-size. It’s such a small percentage and even if it was even, that would be better – but it’s so tipped in the wrong direction to what most of the women are,” Wilson told AOL exclusively at an event in NYC to preview her latest holiday collection with the plus-size retail service Dia & Co.

“I also found there was lack of a youthful kind of [clothing] line out there, so I really endeavored into making my brand [youthful]. And you don’t have to be young to wear it. My mom wears the jackets and stuff all the time. She loves it and all of her friends love it. They like that it gives them that youthful feeling,” she added.

In person, Rebel Wilson is just as eccentric and likable as her famed character Fat Amy.  The Aussie actress stole the hearts of America with her work in “Pitch Perfect” and dished to AOL about her favorite moments on set of the films.

“I just love all of those girls and we love working with each other. When we do the riff offs it’s always interesting because there’s always like 300 people in one room or in a swimming pool like the first movie. It’s always really tough conditions like in the first movie, for example, it was freezing cold like zero degrees and then in the second movie it was like 130 degrees and in the third movie, we had military helicopters and planes flying over every time we tried to film so we kept having to stop.” Wilson said.  “But there’s just something about the group and all being there together that makes those days really fun.”

With three films under her belt as one of the leading members of The Barden Bellas, Wilson admits her iconic role as Fat Amy would have some tough shoes to fill if the movie ever did make it to Broadway.

“They were talking about being a Broadway version and I think Fat Amy would be very difficult to cast. I’m sure by the time they do put that on the stage here in New York, they’ll have found somebody. I’m sure there will be some killer girl out there ready to crush it.”

The legacy of Law Roach – From Zendaya to Celine Dion

Originally published on AOL.com

If you didn’t immediately google who Celine Dion’s stylist was after she performed “My Heart Will Go On” during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, then the self-proclaimed image-architect and stylist behind the era of Dion’s couture comeback will tell you. His name is Law Roach.

“That is probably one my career-defining moments. I had never received so many texts and emails and DMs on social media from other stylist and my peers. I still get chills every time I think about it. It was such an emotional moment for me to part of that. She’s celebrating this song that literally is so important to her career and it was the 20th year anniversary of the ‘Titanic.’ There were so many things that lead up to it and it was the only time so far that I literally cried,” Roach told AOL exclusively during an NYFW Disney celebration for Minnie Mouse’s 90th year anniversary.

“When that chandelier came up I just bursted out into tears and then I looked around the room and everyone was crying – rappers were crying! It was the voice, the women and the legend and the song and that dress. It was super, super powerful to be a part of that.” 

That dress Roach speaks of was a white haute couture gown by Stephane Rolland, a designer he’s never worked with before. The importance of working with newer brands and emerging talent is crucial to Law’s success. 

The 40-year-old stylist with a tight roster, including Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato, is most famous for his work with Zendaya and Celine. In 2014 Zendaya and Law went people watching outside Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week, where he threw on a bold yellow and cobalt coat (by an unfamiliar designer, MIUNIKU) over her simple jeans and white tee outfit. That was the first time Zendaya experienced a swarm of photographers. The outfit generated major street style buzz, putting Law on the fashion map for the first time.

Law, who recently made history as the first African American stylist to cover The Hollywood Reporters 25 most powerful stylist issue, has proved that his styling talents have exceeded far beyond street style. When I asked him why it’s still important to keep young designers on his radar, he recalled that iconic Zendaya moment.

“I think that’s why you do it because anytime you have the ability to change someone’s life for the better, you should it. I think sometimes people get really caught up on working with established designers but the people that are coming up are the next Marc Jacobs or Michael Kors or whatever. It’s so important to support young talent and I kind of built my career on doing that. Like that MIUNIKU coat that you mentioned, they went on to compete for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. It’s those types of things where you build this relationship and it becomes part of your legacy too. In a selfish way, you do it for that. I was new talent and people supported me.”

Jen Atkin gets candid about her success story

Originally published on AOL.com

When the New York Times called Jen Atkin “the most influential hair arbiter of our time,” the celebrity hairstylist recalls the surreal moment as one that has changed her life.

“I get goosebumps every time anybody talks about it. It’s so crazy, I don’t even know how that happened. It was so weird, it happened right before OUAI launched and honestly that changed my life. You are talking about all of the major moments in my life. It’s totally something I’ll never forget and one of those things you have to frame and have in your office,” Atkin told AOL exclusively during an NYFW Disney celebration for Minnie Mouse’s 90th year anniversary.

Jen Atkin has come a long way since growing up in a Mormon household in Hawaii and fleeing to L.A. at age 19 with just $300. Before launching her best-selling haircare brand, OUAI, Atkin was working in a hair salon which eventually led her to John Galliano through the people she met. 

“So, I started doing hair for John Galliano when he was at the head of the house of Dior. It was incredible. I got to go to Shanghai and actually be there for Paris Fashion Week and be in his VIP tent with Kate Moss and Anna Wintour. I learned so much from him and his partner, Alexis Roche, they are amazing! Oh, my god, that was eleven years ago and that was my first entryway into the fashion world.”

From Met Galas to Cannes to global Vogue covers, Jen Atkin has been an essential part of modern-day’s most iconic beauty moments. Her roster includes every member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Kaia Gerber, Chrissy Teigen, the Hadid sisters and Adelle, and she is constantly expanding with Hollywood’s elite. Atkin’s career has brought her around the world and back but her busy schedule and world-tour lifestyle don’t necessarily give her time to reflect on all of her accomplishments. 

“I swear to god; I do not remember anything if it’s before two or three days ago. I just took a staycation and my husband forced me to sit and just go through photos. I don’t have time to ever really stop and really reflect. That for me was actually amazing because it’s weird, I don’t think we ever stop to think about the big things that got us to where we are now.”

One of the most impressive elements of Atkin’s success is her fan-base and massive Instagram following of 2.5 million. Jen has become a celebrity in her own right and even counts Adelle as a fan of hers.

“I remember going to cut her hair and she was like “why do you have this cape with ‘OUAI’ written on it,” and I said “that’s my brand!” and she goes ‘shut up!’ and had our products in her bathroom. I’m the biggest [Adelle] fan, she’s so cool and her makeup artist is the greatest. She’s the ultimate goals and her concerts are so fun, she’s so funny!’

Cleo Wade on her latest project with Reese Witherspoon

Originally published on AOL.com

Cleo Wade has been dubbed as “the millennial Oprah” by New York Magazine.

The Instagram poet/artist won over the hearts of America with her inspiring book, “Heart Talk”, which gained her worldwide recognition. Now Cleo is partnering up with fashion brand Lou and Grey for their #GirlsTalkReal initiative and working on an inspiring project with Reese Witherspoon.

We talked with Cleo about the importance of working with female-positive brands, the success of Heart Talk and what it’s like working with Reese.

AOL: Why did you feel like ‘Heart Talk’ needed to be written for the world?

CW: I asked myself what type of tool I really needed but felt wasn’t in the world yet. I felt I really needed a book that felt like a friend or a warm blanket on a cold night, so I wanted to create that.

What was it like for you to experience the success of ‘Heart Talk?’ Did you know it would be this big?

I am just so grateful for all of the amazing people I have gotten to meet from putting Heart Talk in the world. I feel so lucky that as I travel around the world each of them gifts me with stories from their lives. I truly treasure that part the most.

From Olivia Culpo to Reese Witherspoon and so many more, you’ve received tons of support (especially on social media) from females. Why is it important for females to see that women actually can support other women?  

It is important that young women see examples of women supporting each other and rooting for each other rather than old archaic examples of us competing with each other or comparing ourselves to one another. The more they see us celebrating each other, the more they know how to do it with the other young women around them.

Why is it important for you to continue to partner up with female-positive brands such as Lou & Grey and OKREAL? 

People, especially young women, really need spaces to feel free and safe to be themselves. I am so proud of brands like Lou & Grey and OKREAL who see that and work to create spaces to support their growth and inspire them.

 

Mandy Moore reveals how she prepares for the emotional scenes in ‘This Is Us’

Originally published on AOL.com

Mandy Moore has officially won over America’s hearts as Rebecca Pearson in “This Is Us”

The 34-year-old actress stepped out last night in New York City at Tao Downtown to celebrate her new DuJour magazine cover. Moore stunned in a ruffled neoprene LWD, completed with sky-high black stilettos and sleek swept over hair.

While Moore is making her press rounds, fans are gearing up for an epic return of season 3. Between the death of Jack Pearson and an emotional ride of relationships, AOL spoke to Mandy about how she prepares to play such a sentient character. 

“It sort of differs episode by episode and scenario by scenario, but normally it’s all about courting myself off, being quiet, reflective, listening to some music. Just like reading the scene over and over again; Anything I can do to just be still and be by myself.”

While it’s no secret that “This Is Us” has arguably become one of the world’s most emotional and relatable shows, Mandy admits there’s still time for fun on set. And the laughs from her funny co-stars aren’t necessarily great for her on-screen prosthetics.

“Sterling is really funny and Justin is hilarious and Chris Sullivan. When I have to do a scene with all three of those guys, it’s not good for anybody because I can’t laugh in my prosthetics. So it’s never a good idea,” the Emmy-winner shared with AOL.

“This Is Us” premieres returns tonight, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m on NBC.

NYFW: Claudia Li sparks cultural conversation with her Spring 2019

Originally published on AOL.com

Claudia Li’s collection delivered key trends for the upcoming season: oversized silhouettes cinched belting and bold prints.

Li showcased bright floral separates, fuchsia silk tunics and hand-stitched flower appliques, but that’s not to say that she didn’t send plenty of classics down the runway too. There was a clean mix of simple trousers and collared shirts paired with tailored shorts. 

The New Zealand-born designer casted all Asian models (35 to be exact) to debut her first runway show, sparking an important conversation about diversity in fashion. 

“Connecting back to the idea of wanting to reflect more of myself, this casting used faces of girls that I understand, grew up with, and look like me to showcase the collection. It helps that it tied into a larger cultural conversation we’re having at the moment. The fact that Awkwafina from Crazy Rich Asians attended and showed her support was the icing on the cake,” Li exclusively explained to AOL.

“The expected standard is only one or two Asian models in any given fashion show, and I so used my show to combat the notion that there’s a singular version of Asian femininity. You meet the girls in my show! They’re all unique and have really amazing but different styles, looks, backgrounds and personalities. The runway helped me show that message to the world, and I thought this was a really important and timely,” the designer added.

Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell open up about their new Lifetime show ‘You’

Originally published on AOL.com

Penn Badgley, Shay Mitchell, and Elizabeth Lail are the stars of Lifetime’s newest hit show “You.” The show gives an alternative view on the dangers of social media stalking and a deep look into the twisted mind of a book clerk portrayed by Badgley, who falls obsessively in love with Elizabeth Lail’s character, Beck.

The cast chatted with AOL Entertainment at the show’s premiere where the former “Gossip Girl” actor opened up about how he mentally prepared for the role of Joe Goldberg, a disturbed stalker turned serial killer. 

“I did a lot of prayer and meditation, to be honest. Because I felt like he’s not a real person, he’s not a real serial killer. Initially, I wasn’t even interested in making him human and then it was learning to trust a lot of the women around me that this was a valuable story to be worth telling because I was so horrified by the idea of this guy. I was compelled by the project but I wasn’t sure that I wanted to play this guy because everyone else can say ‘Oh yeah that’s nice,’ but I’m the one that has to embody him. It was a lot about learning how to trust the women who were apart of this project to encourage the story being told,” Badgley told AOL.

“You,” which premiered last night, has already been picked up for a second season. If we’ve learned anything from watching the pilot episode, it’s that social media can have its up and downs. Shay Mitchel, who plays Beck’s best friend, Peach, has an astounding Instagram following of nearly 21 million, yet the former “Pretty Little Liars” actress understands the importance of being cautious.

“I’ve always been pretty cautious. Whether you’re in the public eye or not, I think everybody should be cautious about what they’re putting out there. The whole world doesn’t need to know where you are in that exact moment.”

However not all Instagram stalking is bad! The 31-year-old actress recalled a time she got a very special like on one of her photos. “Rihanna liked my photo one time and I was very excited about it!”

Roger Federer admits he’s called Anna Wintour for style advice on the courts

Originally published on AOL.com

Known for his dapper style on and off the court, Roger Federer is not just a tennis icon, but a fashion one at that.

After his 20-year contract with Nike ended, die-hard fans were surprised when mega-retailer, UNIQLO, tapped Federer for their latest collaborative collection – but getting a stamp of approval from Anna Wintour was probably confirmation he was making the right move.

“Sometimes I have called her up in the past and asked her for [fashion] advice. I also asked her what she thought of UNIQLO and she thought it was a great idea. She thought it would be a wonderful match,” Federer told press at The Park Hyatt hotel in NYC during an intimate gathering to celebrate the new partnership. 

With his groundbreaking gameday attire, Federer revealed, “sometimes she [Wintour] likes to know what I’m going to wear. She asked me what I was wearing to the US Open and I would show her and she has her comments and sometimes when I have choices, I’ll show her – especially when it comes to New York and Wimbledon – she’s very particular in wanting to know before everybody else what’s going on. I don’t mind as long as Nike in the past or Uniqulo doesn’t mind me showing her. But she’s very trustworthy so I feel like it’s only for the best that I bring cool stuff to tennis. Anna is incredibly supportive and I can’t thank her enough,” he continued.

Federer first stepped out wearing UNIQLO at this past Wimbledon. The Japanese brand will be offering replica game wear worn by Roger Federer at the 2018 US Open and fans will be able to reserve their favorite pieces available for pre-order on UNIQLO.com. The collection was designed around a single tone of deep red which is reminiscent of the brands signature color.  

“I think it starts with the fabrics and the colors for me, and then the tailoring and the fit comes naturally. The question is do we keep it fitted, like the way I have been wearing because when I first started my clothes were pretty baggy. Back in the ‘90s things were different but now it has been very fitted. So the question is, shall we change up that silhouette? There’s a discussion there but I think that the fabrics are very important. I like the colors we chose a lot and the detailing because I think there’s so much we can do,” Federer exclusively told AOL’s Laura Galvan.

The 37-year-old Swiss tennis pro won his 20th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open earlier this year. With not having won the US Open in a decade, Federer admits that it is the toughest championship to win but he doesn’t feel the pressure. 

“I think the US Open announces itself as a very exciting one and a difficult one to win. It’s the last opportunity for everybody to win a slam. Thankfully, I already have one,” Federer said jokingly.

“So at least, I can go into the US Open with less pressure in my opinion. I think it’s a good thing to look at this US Open with not having to win it, but wanting to win it badly – because I have not won it in 10 years. I have some work to do myself but I’ve come very close in recent years. Not the last two, because I haven’t been healthy but this year I feel really good about my chances. It is tough and maybe one of the toughest to win out there. I’m very excited and happy to be back.”

US Open 2018: How Madison Keys conquers game day nerves

Originally published on AOL.com

At just 21-years-old, Madison Keys was ranked No.7 in the world of professional tennis and became the first American female to succeed this milestone since Serena Williams seventeen years ago.  

The now 23-year-old is gearing up for the US Open next week and dishing on her major success at such a young age. AOL.com sat down with Madison at the Hudson Hotel in New York City during Evian’s ‘I Wanna’ campaign launch.  Keys is the first American ambassador for the French water company alongside Maria Sharapova and actor, Luka Sabbat

“I’m excited just to be back there. I had so many fun emotion-filled matches laid on Ashe. Having the crowd’s support is one of my favorite things about being at my home slam. I am really looking forward to being out there again with everyone,” Keys told AOL. “The biggest thing is knowing that I am going to be nervous. I’m going to have remind myself it’s just tennis and I’m not trying to save anyone lives out there. It’s more just leaving last year behind me, it’s a new tournament and not to put too much pressure on myself because I’m going to anyway – just remembering that last year wasn’t perfect either. There were a lot of ups and downs but I managed and I figured it out. It turned out to be amazing.”

Keys turned pro on her 14th birthday and a few months later, she beat out Serena Williams in a set to five games at the World Team Tennis match. During our conversation, she revealed that seeing success early on is one of her biggest motivators and even if it doesn’t work out for other young women professionally, the sport can still open doors.

“It something that means a lot to me, but being very hard on myself makes me want more. I’ve always been very proud of myself but at the same time I’ve also been like ‘well, it’s not enough, I want more,’ so it’s a motivator.”

“The biggest thing to remember is that even if it doesn’t work out professionally it can still open so many doors. I think so many people get caught up in “okay if I don’t make it professionally, I’ve failed” but I have so many friends who ended up going to college and now have amazing jobs that they love because of tennis or they meet new people. It’s supposed to be fun and it’s a sport and you can get to do a lot more than hit a ball over the net,” she added.

Unlike basketball or football, tennis has a predominantly strong female presence on the court. With Women’s Equality Day coming up on August 26th, Keys opened up about the gender equality issues within sports and the changes she’s seen along the way. 

“As far as sports go we’re pretty lucky because tennis is by far the closest to being equal but we’re still not. It’s something that I think we are slowly going to have to chip away at but it’s not going to change overnight. I think more and more men are starting to realize how big the gap is and how different it is, so I think slowly they’re figuring out and we will see some change.”

 

Shaq says his ‘spoiled rich brat days are over’

Originally published on AOL.com

Shaquille O’Neal, who is perhaps one of the most recognizable faces in the world, is not afraid to talk about his humble beginnings.

From transforming his legendary NBA career into becoming a movie star, a musician and fashion designer, Shaq’s life since retiring from the NBA has definitely not been boring. With a new movie on the way and his latest collaboration with JCPenneyAOL.com sat down with Shaq at the unveiling of his exclusive big & tall brand, Shaquille O’Neal XLG.

“A big guy can’t afford a $1000 suit, that will throw everything off. You have to pay rent, you gotta pay the car note, help with the babies, so $1000 will throw you off. $200 is good because at least you can get one nice suit,” Shaq told AOL about his collection with JCPenney. “What I know about men is that when we throw on something nice, it makes us feel good about ourselves. It doesn’t matter what size you are. I don’t wanna do suits that I used to wear, I don’t want to try and sell $1000 suits to the common man. I can’t do it.”

The 7-foot-1-inch athlete may have made hundreds of millions in his career but that hasn’t stopped him from understanding most of the world.

“I respect the common working man and my spoiled rich brat days are over. It was a hard-working man that created the man that I am. My father would never even look at a $1,000 suit,” O’Neal explained.

“What I realized over 20 years of personal research is that every time I go to a Big+Tall store and want to get something cool, they don’t have it. So big guys just say ‘forget it,’ so we have the same old jackets, no pattern in our ties and a stupid white shirt with buttons – and I’m like f*ck that, I wanna dress like Tom Cruise, I wanna dress like Will-I-Am.”

Shaq has a new cameo on the way in Taraji P.Henson’s upcoming film, “What Men Want.” When AOL asked how that project came about, he recalled a story explaining his secret to casting in over 15 movies without using an agent.

“The crazy thing is, growing up I never wanted to be a movie star. A lot of people don’t get calls from a director saying we want you to be in a movie. If I get a call from any director, I’m doing it. I’ve had 15 calls and been put in 15 movies. Some good, some bad but it’s all about the experience. I’m walking down the street one day and the guy says ‘Hey, I’m shooting a movie called ‘Blue Chips,’ and we want you in the movie. I was like ‘huh,’-he said Nicole Nolte is in it. So I said ‘wow, sure I’ll do it!’ and that’s how I’ve always got my movie roles. I don’t have a movie agent like people just call me.

“So Will Packer called me and said, ‘Hey Taraji wants you to be in the movie’ and whatever actor turns down Taraji P. Henson is an idiot.”

Rachel Zoe talks being a strict mother and Beyoncé’s epic Vogue cover

Originally published on AOL.com

Rachel Zoe has had quite an impressive career ever since she first styled the most iconic Backstreet Boys album cover of all time back in 1999, “Millennium.”

After leaving her fashion editor job at YM, a magazine for teenagers, Zoe went off on her own to become a freelance stylist and has never looked back. Becoming perhaps the most famous stylist in Hollywood, the now-designer is a mom of two adorable boys and is not finished building her fashion media empire just yet.

AOL recently caught up with Rachel Zoe to chat about everything from her latest Resort collection, motherhood and of course, Bella, Gigi and Beyoncé.

“I was so excited about it, that I’ve already worn half of it and I’m wearing another one tonight to an event that I’m hosting this evening in Montauk. I was like, ‘It’s a little early to start wearing my collection.’ It comes out in November – I am just so excited about it.” Zoe explained of her latest collection for her namesake label.

“This collection is really about the holiday season, when people start to get in that party, holiday, vacation mode – and I just found that Resort for me should always have that real sexy, glamour, easy kind of dressing. It is very Studio 54. The goal of my collection is to get alot of high impact with very little effort. The clothes do the work for you.”

Rachel recently joined Shire’s screen responsibly initiative in an effort to bring awareness to the importance of prioritizing screen time safely. When I asked if she worries about her sons, Skylar and Kaius, growing up in a fast-paced tech and social generation, she was quick to say “Yes.”

“Yes, I do [worry].  All the time. And I really am strict about it. It’s not necessarily about them being on a screen, it’s about controlling what it is they’re watching or doing on the screen. Having two young boys, they just love it – but I think it is really about teaching them and really monitoring how long they screen time for. They get a certain amount of time and they can have that after school or after camp. Everyone needs a little bit of time to shut their minds down, but I am definitely really crazy about what they watch.”

On her own screen usage:  “I don’t watch a lot of television at all so, I am fortunate in that I get to save in that area. I have so many friends and people in my life that are just glued to television. I am not one of those people, so I find that I screen time primarily for my business.”

Zoe recently took to her Instagram to praise Beyoncé’s September Vogue cover, in which Anna Wintour gave the superstar full control over the editorial and art direction.

On Beyoncé: “OMG! Well, first of all, I think I’m one of the number one Beyoncé fans. I really just have a forever girl crush on her. I think she is just amazing, obviously initially as a performer but also just as such an incredible role model to so many women and really embracing her natural beautiful self and always sharing with the world a little bit about humanizing herself. She’s just such a force. I also think that that particular editorial on the cover was so magnificently beautiful. It just really took me, I froze.”

The stylist-turned-designer has a long list of A-list clients including everyone from Jennifer Garner to Cameron Diaz and Keira Knightly. Zoe runs in a tight crowd of celeb and designer best friends (consisting of Gwyneth Paltrow and Brian Atwood) and is not shy about posting their squad on Insta.

On her favorite celeb style: “I definitely have red carpet favorites and street style favorites. If you take it in the supermodel category, Gigi, Bella and Joan Smalls, Lily Aldridge – I love what they are doing and love how they are wearing clothes during the day. I love how it’s really good sartorial street style. It’s so fun to look at. I love how they turned out at the Cannes Film festival, Kendall Jenner too….But I always love Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett, and Emma Stone. I definitely have some favorites – but I also think a lot of people are playing it super safe on the red carpet now.”
