Jaeger-LeCoultre supported the New York premi√®re of Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher at the 52nd New York Film Festival on October 10.
   The film tells the story from the viewpoint of Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, and his relationship with sponsor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz, also an Olympic wrestler. Foxcatcher was the name of du Pont’s farm.
   It has already won Miller the best director prize at the Festival de Cannes earlier this year.
   Channing Tatum plays Mark Schultz, Mark Ruffalo plays Dave Schultz, and Sienna Miller plays Dave’s wife, Nancy. Steve Carell plays du Pont. Vanessa Redgrave plays Jean du Pont.
   Playing host to the cast at a pre-screening cocktail reception, director Miller, producers Megan Ellison and John Kilik, and Sony Pictures’ Michael Barker and Tom Bernard, was Jaeger-LeCoultre president Philippe Bonay.
   Bonay, Carell and Ruffalo each donned a Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control watch.

Out now: Chanel releases new No. 5 campaign with Gis√®le B√ľndchen, directed by Baz Luhrmann

After teasers this week, Chanel has now premi√®red its new No. 5 campaign, The One That I Want, starring supermodel Gis√®le B√ľndchen, and written and directed by Baz Luhrmann. Academy Award winner Catherine Martin oversaw the production design.
   Luhrmann directed the 2004 campaign for Chanel No. 5 with Nicole Kidman.
   In the last 10 years, Luhrmann says that the focus has changed. With the Kidman campaign, he says it was about a woman breaking free, then return to reality. Today, B√ľndchen plays a woman who listens to her heart, free to make her own choices.
   ‚ÄėThe Chanel woman can be with herself on a beach, can be with her child, can have an aspirational and fulfilling work life, and at the same time she can have a true relationship; she can have romance. And in the end, the Chanel woman chooses love,’ says Luhrmann.
   Earlier, the director explained why B√ľndchen was the perfect casting: ‚ÄėShe can be on the beach one moment and incredibly athletic. She has children. She has a very, very significant relationship. And yet, she has a career where she can create aspirational, sensual, incredibly glamorous imagery, and somehow, what‚Äôs most important to her, ‚Ķ is love, to really be fulfilled. And I think that‚Äôs what we try to convey in this little film.‚Äô
   Chanel says the new film, which is 3 minutes 23 seconds‚ÄĒand cut to 30- and 60-second versions, ‘tells the story of a woman who struggles to find space for everything‚ÄĒherself, family, career, and love.’
   The film itself is emblematic of Luhrmann’s earlier work: glamorous, romantic, with mixed historical eras and music playing a huge role.
   Chanel has also released behind-the-scenes videos, including one on the costume design and another on the locations (including Fiji, Montauk, the Queensboro Bridge, and Manhattan), as well as interviews with Luhrmann and B√ľndchen.
   Other Chanel No. 5 campaign directors have included Ridley Scott, Luc Besson, Kathryn Bigelow, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and Martin Scorsese.
   The accompanying music is Lo-Fang‚Äôs cover of ‚ÄėYou‚Äôre the One That I Want‚Äô, composed by John Farrar.

Chanel has teased with more imagery for its upcoming No. 5 campaign with Gis√®le B√ľndchen, written and directed by The Great Gatsby (2013) director Baz Luhrmann, with production design by Academy Award winner Catherine Martin.
   The new images show the supermodel in two more outfits in addition to her surfing one shown yesterday.
   In one, again shot by Hugh Stewart, B√ľndchen is wearing a silver lam√© fringed organza dress from the Chanel haute couture spring‚Äďsummer 2014 collection, with mauve suede sneakers, Plume de Chanel earrings in 18 ct white gold and diamonds, and a Plume de Chanel ring in 18 ct white gold and diamonds. Make-up uses a similar palette, with le Blanc de Chanel, Perfection Lumi√®re Velvet and Les Beiges foundation; Cr√®me de Chanel in R√©v√©lation for the blush; les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Tiss√© Rivoli; Ecriture de Chanel eyeliner in black; Stylo Yeux Waterproof pencil in Noir Intense and the Kh√īl pencil in Clair; Rouge Allure lipstick in Ind√©cise; le Crayon L√®vres in Mordor√© Nude to define the lips; le Vernis for the nails, in Ballerina.
   B√ľndchen’s second outfit sees her wear a black double silk‚Äďcr√™pe dress with silver embroidery from the cruise 2014‚Äď15 collection, with black satin sandals from the spring‚Äďsummer 2014 collection. She wears a Chanel necklace in 18 ct white gold and diamonds, and earrings in 18 ct white gold and diamonds.
   B√ľndchen’s choice, according to Luhrmann in the latest behind-the-scenes video, can be summed up with her multi-faceted nature. ‘She can be on the beach one moment and incredibly athletic. She has children. She has a very, very significant relationship. And yet, she has a career where she can create aspirational, sensual, incredibly glamorous imagery, and somehow, what’s most important to her, ‚Ķ is love, to really be fulfilled. And I think that’s what we try to convey in this little film.’
   He says that she has ‘a new world sensibility. I think that’s both fresh but very true to Coco Chanel. Coco brought the new era to the old world. She was the one who smashed the convention. She was the one who just hung out and was friends with the avant-garde. She was 100 per cent behind the new, 100 per cent behind possibility, and 100 per cent, in her DNA, a self-empowered woman. Gis√®le felt honoured, I felt, to be identified as the No. 5 woman. She has continued to evolve as a woman.’
   B√ľndchen follows in the footsteps of Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, and even Brad Pitt. Luhrmann, meanwhile joins Ridley Scott, Luc Besson, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet as Chanel No. 5 directors.
   Patrick Demarchelier shot the final stills of the campaign.
   Says Chanel, ‘In this new chapter, the story of No. 5 is told in a way that goes beyond the fragrance itself. Ten years ago, No. 5 was the fragrance of a woman who decided to break free from it all and then return to reality, renouncing her desire. Today, through Luhrmann‚Äôs eyes, we see the No. 5 woman deciding to listen to her heart. She is a woman who knows exactly who she is, and is free to make her own choices and listen to her desires. The film tells the story of the modern woman who struggles to make time for everything‚ÄĒherself, family, career, and love.’
   The accompanying music is Lo-Fang‚Äôs cover of ‘You‚Äôre the One That I Want’. The film itself, to be released on October 15, has no words or dialogue.

Kendall Jenner is following the mantra that if you’ve got it, flaunt it. The model stepped out in New York in a showcasing her incredibly toned body in a maroon coloured crop-top, maxi-skirt and C√©line handbag, as she headed to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time fund-raiser.
   Jenner has walked for Chanel, Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana recently, boosting her catwalk cred.
   Meanwhile, Texan-born singer Selena Gomez was happy to channel the Kim Kardashian look at the premi√®re for Rudderless in Los Angeles, with a low-cut red silk dress by Christian Dior, drop earrings and black heels. The film, directed by William H. Macy, is released in the autumn.
   Kristen Stewart was snapped at the Apple store in New York’s Soho. The beauty wasn’t in store for the latest iPhone but to promote her upcoming film Camp X-Ray. Stewart, 24, in a leather dungaree-style dress, took questions from the audience. The actress could be a contender for an Oscar for her role in Still Alice, which Sony Pictures Classics is campaigning for.
   Finally, the Spanish men’s magazine Icon held its first awards’ ceremony at the Italian consulate in Madrid, where model and Valentino muse Nieves √Ālvarez (top) got her share of admirers in her bow tie and double-breasted dinner suit, and Carrera y Carrera Jard√≠n de Rosas earrings in white gold and diamonds.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve‚ÄĒthe multi-layered blended Scotch with honey tones and a woody, fruity flavour‚ÄĒhosted a party with Vanity Fair at the 71st Biennale di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival on Saturday.
   The function kicked off Rankin’s search for the next rising star, with guests including Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Blanca Su√°rez, Marie Nasemann, Paolo Stella, Eleonora Carisi, Manos Gavras, Lavinia Guglieman, Eliana Miglio, Sara Cavazza Facchini, and Bejna Bruijning.
   Guests enjoyed the function at the Westin Europa and Regina, where they saw an exclusive exhibition featuring Rankin’s photography. They also had shots taken in a luxury photo booth, which will begin its travels around Europe from September 2014 to February 2015. Rankin will judge the best from the shots during this period, where the winner will star in an online Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve campaign next year. Those who wish to participate can find out more at the Johnnie Walker website.
   In a release, Rankin said, ‘Over the years, I‚Äôve been lucky to capture many celebrities on their rise to fame. Now, in collaboration with Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, I‚Äôm looking for a new generation of rising stars, who embody the spirit and passion it takes to succeed, in whatever they put their mind to. Putting down the camera, I‚Äôve designed a photo booth which is a new and different way of shooting for me. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Through special treatments and lighting, I will capture the celebratory moments of today‚Äôs rising stars‚ÄĒI am really looking forward to seeing the results.’

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.

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

Lucire staff/14.13

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.’
