The Screen Actors’ Guild Awards sometimes provides an indication of what Hollywood is thinking when it comes to the Oscars, though this year, the number of black actors who were awarded at the SAGs suggests that that might not be the case. Awarded on Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Lucire spotted Laverne Cox, Viola Davis, Kristen Wiig, Emilia Clarke, Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes, Kate Winslet, Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic, Alfie Allen, Amanda Peet, David Benioff, January Jones, Samira Wiley, writer Lauren Morelli, Hannah Bagshawe, Joanne Froggatt, Annie Parisse and Paul Sparks, Christina Ricci, Ariel Winter, Sola Bamis, Sarah Paulson and Jon Hamm, Sarah Hyland, Kathryn Hahn, Diane Lane, Kiernan Shipka, Julianne Moore, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Priyanka Chopra, Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara, Julianna Margulies, Rachel McAdams, Leonardo DiCaprio, Rooney Mara, Naomi Watts, Tina Fey, Dame Helen Mirren, and Anna Faris on the red carpet; Eva Longoria, Julius Tennon, and Amy Poehler additionally at the cocktail reception; Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Uzo Aduba, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Tremblay, and Raquel Cassidy backstage; and, during the show, Demi Moore, Pedro Pascal, Eddie Redmayne, Taye Diggs, Jeremy Renner, Laura Prepon, Susan Sarandon, Ray Liotta and Karsen Liotta, Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen, and Saoirse Ronan.
   Top prizes on the night went to Spotlight, for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, with Billy Crudup, Brian d’Arcy James, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, John Slattery, Michael Keaton and Liev Schreiber collecting the award; Brie Larson won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her role in Room; and Leonardo DiCaprio won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for The Revenant.
   Television drama prizes went to Downton Abbey for best series, Viola Davis for How to Get Away With Murder, and Kevin Spacey for House of Cards. For comedy, the honours went to Orange Is the New Black for top series, Uzo Aduba for Orange Is the New Black; and Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent.
   Alicia Vikander won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for The Danish Girl; while Idris Elba won the Male award for Beasts of No Nation. Queen Latifah won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Bessie, while Elba also won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for Luther.
   Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture went to Mad Max: Fury Road; the television equivalent went to Game of Thrones.
   The legendary Carol Burnett won the SAG Life Achievement Award, the most prestigious offered by SAG-AFTRA. Burnett has already won numerous Emmy Awards, a special Tony, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and both a Kennedy Center honour and its Mark Twain Prize for humour.
   We caught Viola Davis, Queen Latifah, Kimiko Glenn, Lea DeLaria, Beth Fowler, Leonardo DiCaprio in the trophy room after their wins, and Idris Elba, Carol Burnett, Brie Larson, Kevin Spacey, Alicia Vikander, Julianne Moore, and Jeffrey Tambor in the press room.
   The awards were streamed through TNT’s and TBS’s websites and apps as well as broadcast through their TV channels.

Everyone wants to dress like David Beckham, in spring 2016 H&M campaign

Lucire staff/23.24

David Beckham, in his ongoing collaboration with Hennes & Mauritz, has shot his latest campaign for his spring 2016 Modern Essentials Selected by David Beckham collection in Lisboa, Portugal. It is accompanied by a humorous film promoting the line, directed by Fredrik Bond.
   The previous promo showed Beckham discovering that comedian Kevin Hart dressed exactly like him. Its sequel takes things a step further, where Beckham finds that everyone around him is dressed the same as him, including all the hotel staff, an arguing couple, a grandmother, a baby, and skateborders. The accompany print campaign has been shot by Mario Sorrenti.
   The premise is showing off Beckham’s position as a style leader.
   â€˜I always have the best time shooting H&M campaigns. They really understand my style and my sense of humour. It was great to wear such sharp pieces from the Modern Essentials range while having such a good time,’ said Beckham in a release.
   The collection will drop on February 18 and March 19 at all H&M stores that carry menswear, and online at hm.com.

Bang on trend, Karen Walker’s summer ’16 eyewear blasts off into space

Lucire staff/23.55




Above Karen Walker Eyewear’s Cosmonaut, One Orbit and Star Sailor—which we’re choosing as the picks of the season in the wake of David Bowie’s passing.

Karen Walker Eyewear’s Arrowed by Karen summer 2016 collection hits stores today (January 20), with new shapes dubbed Moon Disco, Moonwalk, Star City, and Lunar Flowerpatch, joining Harvest, Super Duper Strength, and Number One. Super Spaceship, One Orbit, One Astronaut and Cosmonaut are the futuristic entries, with super-flat lenses. There are new finishes in rose pink and soft grey, plus a finish called Crazy Tort (with brown and gold shades). Her acetate frames have gold, silver and rose gold metal detail, and champagne and silver mirror lenses.
   Our pick of the bunch: the thin-framed look of Cosmonaut, which leaves others in no doubt that you’re ahead of the style game, and that you’re wearing Karen Walker. Star Sailor and One Orbit are the next on our list. These space-themed ones seem right on the Zeitgeist in the wake of icon David Bowie’s passing: there’s that sense of other-worldliness and futurism to them, and we’re picking that as a style this season.

News in brief: Susan Sarandon for L’Oréal; Toxit’s hand-made sunglasses; lecture by fashion historian at Massey University

Lucire staff/12.30




Top Susan Sarandon for L’Oréal. Centre From Toxit’s latest campaign for its hand-made sunglasses. Above Passage #5 coat-dress and belt, from the Dior spring–summer 2011 haute couture collection by John Galliano, from the collection of the Royal Ontario Museum.

Although it’s been known since December 31, L’Oréal Paris has only this week made it official in a lot of its markets: Susan Sarandon is its new spokeswoman, stating, ‘An Oscar winner, mother, activist, entrepreneur, fighter, and a beautiful example of what it means to age with grace, Sarandon is a true woman of worth. Highly respected by her peers and adored by the public, Sarandon is proving that age is just a number and that happiness is the ultimate beauty tool.’
   â€˜Susan is a cinematic icon. She is strong, charismatic and talented and has a compelling sense of self. Her outspoken activism, captivating film work and authentic charm continues to inspire women to be fearless and believe in their convictions,’ said Cyril Chapuy, L’Oréal Paris brand global president in a release. ‘She is a real woman of worth inside and out. We are honoured to have Susan as a new L’Oréalista.’
   Toxit is a new sunglasses’ brand from Italy with one notable point of difference: they’re made by hand. Italian companies are involved at each stage: the Som Occhiali company in Calalzo di Cadore is in charge of the production process; Toffoli di Toffoli Costantino, in the same town, manufactures the acetate parts; the plastics come from Mazzucchelli SpA; the lenses are made by Sel Optical Divisione Filtri Solari; the cases by Pikappa in Vicenza; and the packaging is made by Scatolificio 2 G, near Padua. The products are 100 per cent reliable and safe, says Toxit.
   Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand advises that on February 9 at 6 p.m., Dr Alexandra Palmer, Nora E. Vaughan Fashion Costume Senior Curator and Chair of the Veronika Gervers Research Fellowship in Textiles & Costume at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), will present a lecture at ‘The Pit’, Te Ara Hihiko, Block 12, College of Creative Arts, Massey University, Wellington on Frock Coats, Redingotes and Dior: Fashion in the Royal Ontario Museum, 1909–2016. Palmer will discuss the significance of ROM’s collection of western fashionable dress collected over the last 100 years, and contextualize it within the museum’s larger textile and costume collection.
   She will also give stories on how key items, both historical and contemporary, were acquired, including ROM’s commission of a spring–summer 2011 Christian Dior haute couture gown, Passage #5, by John Galliano.
   A RSVP to V.Karaminas@massey.ac.nz is essential to secure a place.

Kicking off the Golden Globes’ suites: inspirational, inventive and invigorating

Elyse Glickman/10.53



Elyse Glickman

Pre-award suites have been around for so long that the expression ‘Now, I’ve seen everything’ genuinely applies in many cases. For this reason, Rita Branch’s latest outing, Ultimate in Luxury Red Carpet Style Lounge, was positively brilliant because many of the vendors were making their red-carpet début. Even better, women-owned companies were in the spotlight, as were beauty products from around the globe.
   Marquee sponsors included Visit Santa Barbara (still Hollywood’s backyard playground), Los Angeles’ Dermale skin care, Mommy-and-me gear from Rufflegirl.com and Eve & Nico. New York-based Eve & Nico, which was gifting hand-wrought telephone wire baskets from South Africa to guests, is a woman-founded company that stocks its web store with unique decorative and fashion items crafted by women from a variety of communities around the globe. While proceeds from the bowls, handbags, wall hangings, candles and other items benefit women and families in need, there’s the added pride a consumer feels knowing that someone took her time to make something of beauty and utility.
   And speaking of global travel, Queen Latifah’s ‘Make me international!’ line from the film Last Holiday was a great way to describe the head-to-toe beauty offerings, which dominated the event. There were special golden-handle Denman hairbrushes from the UK (a favourite tool in salons throughout the world), Dermale’s new Purifying product collection line, and MyntSmile, a multi-tasking toothpaste created by New Yorker Lisa Marie Kao that not only whitens and prevents cavities, but protects expensive investment dental work.
   A unisex body scrub and lotion from Israel’s Adore Organic Innovation products, made from Dead Sea elements and other organic ingredients, was also a hit with celebrities. Jakob Pahima, who co-owns Adore’s LA-area boutiques, explained how the collection of cleansers, toners, eye creams, body lotions, nail care, moisturizers, night creams address such issues as wrinkling, sagging, and uneven skin tone.
   Fernanda Japan offered a garden of heavenly delights, with perfumes, colognes, body lotions and hair conditions in a dozen vivacious floral–fruit aromatic blends. British Columbia-based Scentuals tempted people with their herbal, cruelty-free products for men, women and infants. Oleavicen lip balm and first aid ointment made in Santa Barbara draw on the power of olive oil, beeswax and alœ to alleviate dry, sensitive skin and small wounds quickly and without mess. The origins for Brevena Skin Care (from Minnesota) grew out of its original use in burn centres. When doctors gave the manufacturers feedback on how the creams helped their often-washed and overly dry skin, they realized their oat-based proprietary formula could treat a variety of skin ailments, from excessive sun exposure to eczema.
   City Color Cosmetics offered guests a variety of blushes and lip paints in both natural and neon hues. Barbara Orbison, wife of late Roy Orbison, offered a fitting tribute to him with her Pretty Woman fragrance, in perfume, candle and solid-fragrance form. The composition of floral, vanilla, amber, spice and woody essences comes together as something with a warm, old-school feel to it that recalls other classics like Estée Lauder’s Youth Dew. Edda Scandinavian body care and home products, crafted in the US, are inspired by the fresh, natural aromas of Scandinavia as well as their cultural penchant for all things organic and sustainably produced.
   While veteran fashion publicist Kristi Ling was on hand to promote her friends behind Betty Boop-licensed apparel, we’re excited about the new path she’s taken as a life coach. Her insight on how to reinvent and recharge your life is covered in her new book, Operation Happiness. While many books promise big changes in multiple steps, she narrows the path down to three: ‘Change Your View’, ‘Change Your Mornings’, and ‘Create New Habit’. If her self-reinvention is any indication, the book should be a compelling read. Another casual clothing purveyor was Twisted J Apparel, whose designs are inspired, in part, by Native American art forms.
   Of course, there cannot be an awards’ show suite without some bling. Rita and company did not disappoint. On the costume ends of things, Israeli-born Lilach Adoni was a crowd-pleaser with her state and country silhouette medallions in gold and silver tone and crystal embellishments. On the higher end, Nadri unveiled its new line of sterling silver and semi-precious stone pieces that, in terms of appearance and artistry, could give pricier lines a run for their money—especially when fashionable people are looking for conflict-free glamour.
   If you’re a guy who lives in the fast lane, but wants to do it in a way kinder to the environment, you would have found the presence of Tesla Motors (which first appeared in our pages in 2004) to be quite exciting. The California-based company owned by Elon Musk, that has the entire automotive world talking, gave away limited edition prints to celebrities, and sleek key chains to all.
   Celebrities attending included Saffron Burrows (Mozart in the Jungle), Nyle DiMarco (America’s Next Top Model), Sarah Hay (Flesh and Bone), A. J. Buckley (CSI), Richard Portnow (Trumbo), Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), director Klaus Haro and actor Kai Nordberg (The Fencer), Bernardo P. Saracino (Sicario), and Johnny Ortiz (American Crime Show).—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor
