Sarah Michelle Gellar is the New Zealand judge and ambassador for Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year.
   Gellar, best known for her role in Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, and who made a notable impression in last year’s The Crazy Ones‚ÄĒLucire‚Äôs favourite US sitcom of ‚Äô13‚ÄĒalongside the late Robin Williams, joins a panel of judges including designer Alex Perry, TV host Jeremy Corbett, and Specsavers’ style ambassador Pip Edwards.
   The competition is a search for the country’s most stylish spectacle-wearer, celebrating confidence and the love of glasses.
   ‚ÄėI can‚Äôt wait to see New Zealanders stylish entries and help choose a winner,’ said Gellar in a release. ‘As an actress and a glasses-wearer myself, I know how important it is to be proud of your style and to love your frames. I like to look at glasses as an extension of individual style, a way to express a part of your personality that you can have fun with.’
   The winner receives an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Hollywood, including NZ$1,000 spending money, and a new wardrobe of designer glasses from Specsavers.
   Six finalists will each win a trip to Auckland to meet Corbett and a gift bag, including a voucher for an item from Fairley jewellery and two pairs of designer glasses from Specsavers.
   Entrants are asked to submit selfies to the 2014 Spectacle Wearer of the Year website, at loveglasses.specsavers.co.nz.
   Christina Hendricks had previously served as a Specsavers ambassador.

Mindfood Style launches Monday in New Zealand

As Lucire celebrates its 17th anniversary on October 20, another New Zealand name will launch a fashion title. Mindfood Style is set to challenge offerings from large groups such as Germany’s Bauer (Fashion Quarterly) and others.
   Mindfood Style will appear on newsstands with a 350 pp. inaugural issue. Issue one will feature a 36 pp. spring‚Äďsummer 2015 runway report pull-out. Rose McIver (The Lovely Bones) is its first cover girl.
   The masthead adopts a familiar design theme for fashion titles, with a modern typeface, but with the first three letters in Style subtly merging into each other. Bauer Bodoni appears on the cover as Mindfood Style‚Äôs serif family choice. The overall effect is tasteful and minimalist, with Mindfood Style eschewing the messy, multiple headlines of other titles in this sector.
   The magazine will publish twice a year, with spring‚Äďsummer and autumn‚Äďwinter numbers, and will have its own website at the mindfood.com domain. There will be further support on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, and a weekly newsletter.

Actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie can now add the letters GCMG after her name, after receiving an honour at Buckingham Palace from HM Queen Elizabeth II.
   During her audience with the Queen, Jolie was presented with the insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.
   The Queen awarded Jolie the honour from the 1844 room at the palace, for her work fighting sexual violence and for services to UK foreign policy.
   Jolie cannot be addressed as Dame, being a US citizen.
   Jolie chose to wear Ralph & Russo to the Palace. She wore a dove grey, wool crepe peplum jacket and pencil skirt with cinching belt and silk chiffon bow neck tie, inspired by a tailored piece from their spring‚Äďsummer 2014 couture collection.
   She was recognized in the Diplomatic Service and Overseas Birthday 2014 honours’ list.
   Jolie’s husband Brad Pitt and their six children were present. Buckingham Palace said Jolie spent 20 minutes with the Queen.

Hennes & Mauritz

Hennes & Mauritz, with its flagship Fifth Avenue store open in New York alongside other locations in the city, is collaborating with actress Kate Mara (Fantastic Four) and stylist Johnny Wujek to kick off Fashion Week there.
   Mara and Wujek will curate windows in nine H&M New York stores, and introduce their picks in select stores in the US, as well as online.
   On September 4, they will meet fashion students at the Fifth Avenue store for a panel discussion, as the first event of Fashion Week. It also marks the launch of the H&M Studio range for autumn‚Äďwinter 2014‚Äď15.
   The pair are close friends and H&M says the windows will reflect their personalities: Mara with a chic, approachable sensibility, and Wujek with bold and quirky styles.
   Their inspiration has come from black-and-white photography of New York’s cityscape, and its light projections, bridges and building windows.
   ‚ÄėIt was a no-brainer for us to work together on this as we both have a true appreciation for accessible high fashion and our favorite city of New York,’ said Mara in a release.
   Wujek added, ‘Immediately I said yes to work on this incredibly creative project with H&M and Kate. H&M is a pioneer in the field of fashion and being asked to creative-direct their store windows for the opening of New York Fashion Week was my Mannequin dream come true‚ÄĒone of my favourite movies growing up. I can’t wait for people to walk by and see the beauty we make in the H&M windows.’

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman: first official photograph released

Lucire issue 27, with Gal Gadot, photographed by Andrew Matusik.

Director Zack Snyder has revealed the first official image of former Lucire cover girl Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, in the upcoming film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman.
   Gadot, a former Miss Israel who is best known for her role in the Fast and Furious films, takes on the Wonder Woman mantle after a false start under David E. Kelley‚ÄĒhis TV Wonder Woman pilot starring Adrianne Palicki was never aired. On the small screen, Lynda Carter’s portrayal in the 1970s was the best known, and remains the image non-comic book fans have of the character, but there is yet to be a proper big-screen adaptation (even though Superman has had six outings and Batman, in the modern era, has had seven).
   The new film, to be released in two years’ time, is getting its publicity unusually early, but it gives the studio time to build greater momentum for its 2016 release. Warner Bros. is expected to use Dawn of Justice as a springboard for other film series based on the DC Comics characters.

Photographs of actress Riley Keough modelling for de Grisogono at the Grand Hyatt H√ītel Martinez, where she was based during the Festival de Cannes in May 2014, have been released.
   Using one of the suites, Keough modelled wearing various de Grisogono jewellery items, including the latest Allegra line (in Lucire issue 33), as well as designs from the Gocce and Gypsy collections.
   Paris-based Italian photographer Emanuele Scorcelletti, well known for his portraits and his work with luxury brands, photographed Keough.
   The Allegra collection is ‚ÄėDedicated to a new generation of women, who dare to express their radiance, and explore different shapes and jewelled expressions of their individuality,‚Äô says de Grisogono.
   Keough, who is the granddaughter of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, began her modelling career in her teens, and first appeared on an international runway for Dolce & Gabbana.
   Her acting d√©but was in The Runaways (2010), and she soon landed the female lead in The Good Doctor (2011) opposite Orlando Bloom. She has recently completed filming on Mad Max: Fury Road, alongside Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Eva Green previews her Campari 2015 calendar appearance: video and photos

French actress Eva Green is the face of the 2015 Campari calendar, entitled Mythology Mixology. Campari is teasing the calendar with behind-the-scenes images and a video, featuring Green, announcing the project.
   This 16th edition has been photographed by Julia Fullerton-Batten, an acclaimed fine art photographer, and the first female who has shot a Campari calendar.
   The 12 months celebrate Campari’s history and its best loved classic cocktails. Each month tells the story behind the cocktail, with anecdotes and trivia.
   Campari believes that there has been a classic trend over the last decade, and an interest in history, which the calendar attempts to tap into.
   While some may dispute the presence of a classic trend, Campari has been on the pulse in recent years with its calendars. Notably, in 2008, Jessica Alba appeared in its 10th anniversary edition. Other calendar stars include Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, Milla Jovovich, Pen√©lope Cruz and Uma Thurman.
   Green, whose Penny Dreadful series is currently netting her headlines in the lead role of Vanessa Ives, came to prominence in Bertolucci’s The Dreamers (2002), and as Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006), for which she won a BAFTA. She has recently been seen in 300: Rise of an Empire and will soon be seen in Sin City: a Dame to Kill for.
   ‚ÄėTo work with an iconic worldwide brand such as Campari is an honour and a privilege. There is something very special about this year‚Äôs theme as it strikes a compelling and almost magical balance between the classic and the contemporary. At the root of each image is this rich sense of history behind each of Campari‚Äôs best-loved cocktails but they are presented in a way that is ultra-modern, exuding imagination and style. It‚Äôs a thing of incredible beauty and clearly shows that whilst some of these recipes are over 100 years old, they are still relevant to and adored in today‚Äôs world,’ said Green in a release.
   Fullerton-Benton is known for her series, Teenage Stories (2005), which followed the transition of a teenage girl into womanhood. Campari says that the photos will carry her hallmarks of creative settings, unusual locations and cinematic lighting.
   ‚ÄėCampari has always had an inherent ability to recreate itself and keep the brand image fresh, inspiring and imaginative‚ÄĒa goal I constantly strive towards in my own work, too. This year‚Äôs theme was an interesting challenge, as there was an important job to do in terms of taking historical anecdotes and invigorating them with a modern edge. I‚Äôm confident we managed to strike that delicate balance with this year‚Äôs imagery,’ says Fullerton-Batten.
   Bob Kunze-Concewitz, CEO of Gruppo Campari says, ‘Though there has always been a sense of timelessness around our classic cocktails, we‚Äôve been hearing reports from bartenders all over the world that there has been a surging popularity for classic recipes like the Negroni and the Americano. This year‚Äôs Campari Calendar is designed to celebrate those enduring recipes and the heritage behind them, so we‚Äôre very much looking forward to unveiling it later in the year.’

Clémence Poésy launches Chloé Love Story at Paris rooftop party

Coty Prestige has launched its latest fragrance, Chlo√© Love Story, at a rooftop cocktail party on Wednesday at the l’Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris, with actress Cl√©mence Po√©sy the centre of attention as the fragrance’s muse.
   Po√©sy was joined by guests including Rachida Brakni, Maria Jos√©e Croze, G√©raldine Pailhas, M√©lanie Thierry, Karin Viard, Anne Marivin, Hafsia Herzi, Jos√©phine Japy, Jeanne Damas, Jennifer Neyt, and Catherine Baba.
   Jean Mortier, president of Coty Prestige, and Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, CEO of Chlo√©, hosted the function, alongside Chlo√© creative director Clare Waight Keller, and M√©lanie Laurent, who directed the TV spot revealed last night.
   The spot features the song ‘Mi Amor’, performed by Vanessa Paradis.
   Christine and the Queens provided live music at the venue, which was decorated with a metallic structure, inspired by the fragrance’s packaging in the shape of a lock-shaped fla√ßon. DJ Nouvelle Vague followed.
   The lock motif has been inspired by the Pont des Arts in Paris, which is decorated with padlocks.
   The event tapped into old-fashioned motifs of Paris, with Citro√ęn 2CVs and a boat on the Seine serving as guest transport.
   The fragrance was developed by Anne Flipo, who had previously worked on Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia, Alexander McQueen MyQueen, Donna Karan Woman, and L‚ÄôHomme Yves Saint Laurent. It is her first scent for Coty.
   Chlo√© Love Story features orange blossom, neroli and jasmine stephanotis. It follows the signature Chlo√© fragrance, which is also fronted by Po√©sy in its marketing.
   The eau de parfum will retail from September.
