Emma Watson, about to graduate, ponders the next stage of her life

Gracing the April issue of Elle Australia, Emma Watson gives readers the opportunity to realize that despite all her success, she just wants to be normal, and she doesn’t want to be criticized for calling an ‘eraser’ a ‘rubber’, a mistake, she tells Elle, she made during her first week at Brown University. In a few months, she will graduate with a degree in English, and she admits, she has no idea what the next chapter of her life is meant to look like, yet she’s optimistic about the whole ‘post-grad situation.’
   ’Look,’ she tells Elle’s Mickey Rapkin, ‘I just want to know exactly what the next 10 years of my life is going to look like, OK? And to have it organized on a colour-coordinated calendar. Is that really too much to ask for?’ And as most of her graduating class would ask the same question, it becomes clear that, although Watson has graced the film and fashion worlds, she is just like any other “almost graduate” deciding where the next chapter of her life is heading, or at least, trying to figure it out.
   But Watson admits she is jealous of other actresses, whose rise to fame have been less embarrassing to hers, citing her role as Hermione Granger as her greatest, yet not her most stylish, role.
   ‘There are these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two and they get to emerge as this complete human being,’ adding, ‘And I’m so jealous! Because everyone has seen me with my terrible haircuts and my awful teeth and all the terrible things I wore and said.’ But that’s the beauty of Watson, she’s so candid and honest about her own insecurities and afflictions that she seems unable to understand why people love her now as the style icon she is, but Watson worries that her best days are already behind her.
   ‘I’ve got so much left to do and prove,’ she tells Rapkin, adding that her absence from the screen wasn’t due to the lack of offers, but, rather the lack of a challenging character. ‘I was being offered roles that I didn’t feel were very complicated. Women that were one-dimensional. Roles that required me to be one thing, but real women never are.’
   Watson admits that she doesn’t want her real life to happen on screen, remembering a quote she once read by Elizabeth Taylor, ‘She had her first kiss in character on a movie set. It really struck me. I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me. That my first kiss could in somebody else’s clothes. And my experience could all belong to someone else.’ The desire to form her own identity is something that Watson emphasizes, she wants to create her own memories, and not just play the role. As the interview progresses, you get the sense that Watson is just trying to find out who she is, without all the Hollywood hype, the movies, the fashion labels; none of that seems too important to her. Emma Watson is on a course to find a “normal” life, but, as she tells Rapkin, finding answers can be tiresome, but finding a safe place is the ultimate goal.
   ‘If I’ve learned anything, it’s to stop trying to find the answers and certainties.’
   Her desire to feel safe and balanced we all share, even Watson admits her quest is a little mad, but she won’t give up on trying to build a “normal” life. ‘You might think I’m crazy,’ she says, ‘but I was like, “I need to find a way to always feel safe and at home within myself.” Because I can never rely on a physical place.’
   Whatever happens in her quest to build a “normal” life, we hope that Watson continues to dazzle us with her acting performances and that she finally discovers what all graduating students search for: the next chapter of her life.—Snjezana Bobič

Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, Chrissy Teigen share Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, shot in the Cook Islands

Lucire staff/4.29

Three models share the cover honours for the 50th anniversary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for 2014: Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen.
   The 2014 edition was revealed Thursday night on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit blog and débuted on national TV Thursday night in the US on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
   It is the first cover for all three models. Teigen has modelled for the special issue since 2010, and Agdal had her début in 2012. It is Aldridge’s first year.
   The last time three models appeared on the cover was in 2006.
   The cover was shot by James Macari in the Cook Islands. The magazine itself will hit newsstands next week, in print and digital formats.
   Teigen also appears in Air New Zealand’s latest safety video, co-branded with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, which was also shot in the Cook Islands.
   Kate Upton had appeared on the cover over the previous two years.

Scarlett Johansson, Oxfam formally sever ties over Sodastream endorsement

Lucire staff/23.18


Above Scarlett Johansson in an unaired commercial for Sodastream.

Oxfam, which has been under pressure to sever its ties with Scarlett Johansson after she became the spokeswoman for Sodastream, confirmed that it no longer has the actress as a goodwill ambassador.
   Johansson, who has worked with Oxfam since 2005, issued an earlier statement about her departure.
   ‘She and Oxfam have a fundamental difference of opinion in regards to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. She is very proud of her accomplishments and fundraising efforts during her tenure with Oxfam,’ her statement read.
   Sodastream, which is part-owned by Israeli interests, has a factory in a settlement in the West Bank. Oxfam opposes goods produced by Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories.
   Oxfam stated, ‘Oxfam has accepted Scarlett Johansson’s decision to step down after eight years as a Global Ambassador and we are grateful for her many contributions.
   ‘While Oxfam respects the independence of our ambassadors, Ms Johansson’s role promoting the company Sodastream is incompatible with her role as an Oxfam Global Ambassador.
   ‘Oxfam believes that businesses, such as Sodastream, that operate in settlements further the ongoing poverty and denial of rights of the Palestinian communities that we work to support.
   ‘Oxfam is opposed to all trade from Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law. Ms Johansson has worked with Oxfam since 2005 and in 2007 became a Global Ambassador, helping to highlight the impact of natural disasters and raise funds to save lives and fight poverty.’
   Activists had been quick to seize on the Sodastream campaign after it became public on January 13.
   Previously, Johansson had stated, ‘Sodastream is a company that is not only committed to the environment but to building a bridge to peace between Israel and Palestine, supporting neighbours working alongside each other, receiving equal pay, equal benefits and equal rights. That is what is happening in their Ma’ale Adumim factory every working day. As part of my efforts as an ambassador for Oxfam, I have witnessed first-hand that progress is made when communities join together and work alongside one another and feel proud of the outcome of that work in the quality of their product and work environment, in the pay they bring home to their families and in the benefits they equally receive.’
   An advertisement for Sodastream will air during the Super Bowl in the US this Sunday, starring Johansson.
   Sodastream CEO Daniel Birnbaum told the Forward that he would not have located a plant in the settlement himself. He became CEO after the plant had been established in the 1990s, but said he would not close it due to his 500 Palestinian employees, who could not work at another plant on the other side of the Green Line. ‘We will not throw our employees under the bus to promote anyone’s political agenda,’ he said.
   Birnbaum also stressed that if a Palestinian state comes into being, his company would be happy to remain there and pay taxes to the new state.

Lucire’s style round-up: fashionable Instagrams this week, January 14

Anna Deans/0.11

Today’s fashion Instagram round-up includes, first, my current model-crush, Bambi Northwood-Blyth. Here, she is looking effortlessly sexy-chic with her head out a car window. Only Bambi could wear a vintage looking bralette and pink shirt to do this and make it look unsilly. Bambi’s best friend and DJ Bip Ling is also included this week, in a snap from Bambi’s fiancé Dan Single’s Instagram. Bip is looking super-alty and stylish in a peach-pink and green skirt and top set with flamboyant frills. She has paired this with stark white platforms with Nike ankle socks, a wicked pair of sunnies and a tousled, beachy mane. I am dying for this super-original look.
   Also included from Australia this week is model and 4th and Bleeker blogger, Alexandra Spencer. Here she looks über-sexy in a hat over half her face with her sumptuous lips showing underneath. I appreciate the black-and-white element of this shot making it even more edgy-sexy. I have also included world-class blogger from Fashiontoast, Rumi Neely, this week. Rumi is a constant style icon of mine and this week she is wearing a sheer-dusty-grey silk organza T, with a soft-cup barely-there bra underneath. Her make-up is its usual minimal self, with a slight cat-eye, paired with her usual tousled mane.
   The last Instagram shot from a blog this week is from Jak & Jil. This blog is a compilation of renowned street-style photographer Tommy Ton’s imagery. This shot is a true pink confection: Tania Gačić looks fabulous wearing an oversized fuchsia blazer with matching bag and lip. Somehow this Barbie-pink look, even on a blonde, still works.
   I have included two more high-profile celebrities this week, the first a stunning shot of Jennifer Lawrence off Vogue Brasil’s Instagram. I am adoring her vulnerability in this shot where she is wearing a robe, most likely having her make-up done. Her expression and make-up are both soft and this endears her very much.
   Rita Ora makes the last celeb spot this week, as I couldn’t resist but include her fabulous eyebrow-advice shot: it is so true. Ladies, take note from Rita’s advice about keeping your brows a less-dramatic, more natural shape.
   Last, I included a shot from my own Instagram. This week I thought I would mix it up and have a beauty-inspo shot of myself, rather than an outfit. Here, I am having fun with my make-up look wearing my usual minimal make-up paired with a statement orange lip by MAC and a tousled pony. Let me know what you think of my more bold look. And that’s a wrap!—Anna Deans

YSL, first of two bio-pics on Yves Saint Laurent, opens today amid controversy

Lucire staff/7.48

Top Pierre Niney as Yves Saint Laurent and Guillaume Gallienne as Pierre Bergé in YSL. Above Pierre Niney as Yves Saint Laurent and Charlotte Le Bon as Victoire Doutreleau.

The first of two bio-pics on fashion design legend Yves Saint Laurent opens today in France.
   YSL, directed by Jalil Lespert, stars Pierre Niney, whose make-up is so convincing that Saint Laurent’s last surviving dog reportedly mistook him for his master. Saint Laurent’s former partner and business manager, Pierre Bergé, has also called Niney’s performance convincing.
   Women’s Wear Daily noted that Niney studied footage of Saint Laurent and took sewing and drawing classes to prepare for his role.
   Bergé has endorsed Lespert’s film, which covers the period between 1957 and 1976, and provided the producers with access to the Pierre Bergé–Yves Saint Laurent foundation archive.
   Even from the trailer, there is a sense of visual verisimilitude, and the film has already received acclaim from Paris Match and Elle.
   Bergé has said, ‘The film does not take sides, but tells the truth. All men have a dark and a light side. My life with Yves Saint Laurent was not a fairy tale, but I would not change anything.’
   However, critics of Lespert’s film claim that it glosses over Saint Laurent’s genius. Thomas Bidegain, scriptwriter for the rival bio-pic, told The Daily Telegraph that YSL was ‘simply recounted by Bergé, like Mozart recounted by Salieri.’
   One can see the origins of Bidegain’s claim. In a positive review in L’Express, Mathilde Laurelli notes that YSL recounts a ‘pygmalion du couturier,’ and that it could be more objective.
   However, she and other reviewers tended to praise the film for exploring Saint Laurent’s inner demons, and the clothes from the archive.
   The rival film, which also claims “official” status, has the blessing of François Pinault, the owner of the Yves Saint Laurent brand. Saint Laurent, to be released in May, is directed by Bertrand Bonello, and stars Gaspard Ulliel as the designer. Léa Seydoux plays Loulou de la Falaise and Jérémie Renier portrays Bergé.
   Yves Saint Laurent started at Dior in the mid-1950s and succeeded the designer on his death in 1957. He was drafted in 1960 to fight in the Algerian War of Independence. On his return, Bergé, an art dealer who had met Saint Laurent while he was in a military hospital, tried to have Saint Laurent reinstated at Dior, but the house refused. They successfully sued for breach of contract. They went on to start the Yves Saint Laurent label along with some of the Dior staff. Saint Laurent was appointed Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur in 1985. The following year, the company took control of its fragrance business and floated on the stock exchange. In December 2007, President Nicolas Sarkozy appointed Saint Laurent Officier of the Légion d’honneur. Saint Laurent died in 2008.

Grand Prix photography exhibition opens at Getty Images Gallery on February 6

Top Michael Schumacher comes to the Mercedes-Benz pits at the Shanghai Grand Prix, April 17, 2011. Centre John Surtees and others do the opening sprint at Le Mans, July 21, 1964. Above Nina Rindt waiting for her husband Jochen to pass by. He had a fatal accident at Parabolica just moments after this picture was taken, on September 6, 1970.

An exhibition at the Getty Images Gallery, Freeze the Speed, showcases the work of Rainer W. Schlegelmilch, the famed Formula 1 photographer.
   Schlegelmilch began his career as a Formula 1 photographer in 1962. The 50 years’ worth of images form an enviable archive of 350,000 photographs, some of which appears at the Gallery between February 6 and March 1.
   The work includes his first race at the Nürburgring in 1962, taking portraits for his final exam at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie, before he set up his studio 18 months later. From 1970 he began shooting only in colour. He has attended more than 500 Grands Prix, including taking candid pit and trackside shots.
   Schlegelmilch tends to rely on natural lighting rather than digital enhancement. His work has been published in, among others, Auto Revue, Auto Motor und Sport, Powerslide, ADAC, Sports Car Graphic, Car & Driver, Road & Track and Car Review. Philip Morris, Mobil, Shell, Champion, Mercedes, BMW, Tag Heuer, DHL, and Red Bull are among the clients who have featured his work.
   Louise Garczewska, Director of Getty Images Gallery, says, ‘In the run up to the 2014 F1 season, we are delighted to represent this iconic collection and bring it to a wider audience through this latest touring exhibition.’
   The Getty Images Gallery is close to Oxford Circus, London, and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 12 to 5.30 p.m. Saturday.

Miss France 2014 your top story, and Princess Madeleine your favourite newsmaker

Lucire staff/1.19


Bruno Ehrs/Kungahuset

Above HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden was the person you searched for the most this year.

We’ve told you who we thought 2013’s newsmakers were. But who did you want to read about this year?
   In first place: HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden. The younger of HM King Carl XVI Gustaf’s daughters was married this year, to Anglo-American financier Chris O’Neill, and there was plenty of interest from you in the Royal Wedding.
   Keira Knightley and Penélope Cruz held your imaginations in second and third place this year, followed by Kylie Minogue, Leah Remini, Sonam Kapoor and David Gandy.
   Olivia Newton-John proved that she could still get readers’ interest a generation after Grease, while last year’s World Miss University Mia Hasanagic found herself in ninth place after an influx of searches in January. Fearne Cotton and the new Miss France, Flora Coquerel, manage 10th and 11th respectively, with Jay Kay, Honor Dillon and Adriana Lima following. Jeremy Renner and David Beckham were tied at 15th.
   Our top news items of 2013—unless something drastic happens in these final two days—were, as usual, the election of Miss France (right), while you were also very interested in GHD’s Candy Collection of straighteners.
   Pandora showed that it was a favourite among fashionistas, with its Black Friday charm getting plenty of attention.
   Given that Princess Madeleine was the most-searched person, the Royal Wedding slipped in to fourth and fifth on our charts. Another Royal Wedding story, on the couple’s honeymoon destination, was ninth.
   The current James Bond, Daniel Craig, launching the Range Rover Sport in New York came sixth, followed by Lana Del Rey releasing her new film Tropico last month.
   The top Kiwi story was on the Brancott Estate World of Wearable Art winners, in a year where New Zealanders took the top prizes.
   There remained plenty of interest in last year’s World Miss University, with our story on Mia Hasanagic’s win coming in 10th.
   Last year, Whitney Houston’s death made it into our top 10. Bad news, sadly, still sells, though it was the death of photographer Kate Barry (the cause remains unannounced) that came in at 11th.
