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.
   ‘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.

Parlux sues Jay Z over failure of fragrance line, seeks $20 million

Lucire staff/12.46

Parlux Fragrances is suing Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter over his failure to promote the Gold Jay Z cologne which the company makes, and seeks US$20 million.
   Parlux alleges that Carter failed to make six promotional appearances since Gold Jay Z’s launch in October 2013, and has made none. Allegedly, he failed to appear on Good Morning America and at Macy’s, and did no promotion on social media. Parlux also alleges that he kept his $2 million up-front royalty fee, despite backing out of promoting the cologne.
   It is also alleged that he kept five prototype bottles, with solid gold caps, that had cost Parlux $20,000 each to make. The company also says that Carter was meant to approve, in October 2014, three new fragrances, but none have been signed off.
   Parlux seeks the return of the royalty fee, 300,000 shares in Perfumania, US$18 million in compensation, and the cancellation of the contract from the entertainer, claiming it has lost millions in sales and development costs.
   In the papers it has filed at the Manhattan Supreme Court, Parlux notes that it met repeatedly with Carter’s business manager, Desirée Perez, but never received substantive feedback from either Carter or his management team.

Derek Zoolander promotes Fiat 500X in advance of Zoolander 2

Lucire staff/3.46



Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander alter ego, returning to cinemas on February 12 in Zoolander 2, 15 years after the original, advertises the Fiat 500X crossover in a TV campaign that broke during the Golden Globes’ telecast yesterday.
   While the first spots were 60 seconds, 30-second spots break today on US television. The campaign will also reach digital and social media.
   The campaign has been directed by Jeff Mann, who executive-produces Zoolander 2. Background music is Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s ‘Relax (Don’t Do It)’, and Zoolander adopts his ‘Blue Steel’ pose when he sets off a traffic camera. The campaign was created in partnership with Trailer Park.
   The Fiat 500X is Fiat Chrysler’s latest entry in the 500 family, which was revived in 2007. Built on the larger Fiat Punto platform, the 500X is, for the North American market, an all-wheel-drive crossover that adopts the retromodern looks of the 500 supermini, which in turn paid tribute to the 1957, rear-engined nuova 500. Other markets receive a front-wheel-drive 500X model.
   ‘Joining forces with Paramount Pictures and Zoolander No. 2 allows us to align the Fiat 500X with a pop culture moment through one of this year’s most anticipated films,’ said Olivier François, chief marketing officer and Fiat’s global brand head.
   ‘We are thrilled for Derek Zoolander fans around the world to finally see the result of our year-long collaboration with the Fiat team on a campaign so perfectly in sync with his character,’ commented LeeAnne Stables, president of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships at Paramount Pictures. ‘These Fiat spots are a hilarious reminder of the fun that audiences will have when the movie releases next month.’
   Last March, Stiller as Zoolander and Owen Wilson, in his Zoolander role as Hansel, walked the Valentino runway during the autumn–winter 2015–16 collections in Paris.
   Zoolander 2 is directed by Stiller, and sees the return of Wilson. Will Ferrell, Penélope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, Milla Jovovich, Christine Taylor, Justin Theroux and Kyle Mooney also star. The film is written by Theroux, Stiller, Nick Stoller and John Hamburg. Stiller, Stuart Cornfeld, Scott Rudin and Clayton Townsend produce.

Iris Mittenaere, Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais, has been crowned Miss France 2016.
   Mittenaere, 22, is a dental student in her fifth year of studies. 20minutes earlier revealed that she scored the most highly in a general knowledge quiz (17·5 out of 20, above the average of 13·5).
   She succeeds Camille Cerf, who took home the title last year, and who was present to crown her successor.
   Miss Martinique, Morgane Edvige, and Miss Tahiti, Vaimitu Teiefitu, were runner-up and second runner-up respectively.
   The competition was held at the Zénith in Lille, hosted for the 21st time by Jean-Pierre Foucault. Sylvie Tellier, a former Miss France, remains the organizer of the event, which is aired live on France’s TF1 network each year, typically netting 8·5 million viewers and a 40­·5 per cent share of the audience. Thirty-one contestants, who had each won regional pageants, competed for the title this year.
   The top 12 were: Miss Martinique, Morgane Edvige; Miss Provence, Julia Courtes; Miss Tahiti, Vaimitu Teiefitu; Miss Côte d’Azur, Leanna Ferrero; Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Iris Mittenaere; Miss Réunion, Azuima Issa; Miss Bretagne, Léa Bizeul; Miss Aquitaine, Gennifer Demey; Miss Alsace, Laura Muller; Miss Languedoc, Lena Stachurski; Miss Centre–Val de Loire, Margaux Bourdin; and Miss Rhône-Alpes, Nora Bengrine.
   These were then narrowed down to a top five of Miss Martinique, Miss Provence, Miss Tahiti, Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais, and Miss Réunion. The viewing public accounted for 50 per cent of the vote, the judges the other 50 per cent.
   Miss Martinique, Miss Provence and Miss Tahiti tended to top internet users’ polls in France.
   Jean Paul Gaultier chaired the Miss France jury and was joined by actress Laetitia Milot, The Voice: la plus belle voix winner Kendji Girac, Miss France 2009 Chloé Mortaud, singer Patrick Fiori, singer–songwriter Anggun, and rugby union player Frédéric Michalak.
   Gaultier himself emerged on stage during the early part of the telecast wearing a crown of his own creation and a sash, a notable change in raising the judging panel’s profile.
   A regional costume section complemented themed parades referencing the ‘dreams’ of former Miss France winners, including ones based around pirates, cheerleaders, superheroines, toys, Christmas, confectionery, and eveningwear.

Superdry has collaborated with Idris Elba, the Brit whom we at Lucire keep calling ‘the coolest actor on Earth’ and best known for his role in Luther, on a 250-piece collection, launched Thursday at its Regent Street store.
   And what a perfect spokesman for a premium men’s fashion line, not just because of the press Elba brings.
   Superdry’s founders James Holder and Julian Dunkerton felt an affinity with Elba. Said the actor, ‘We’re three British lads who’ve worked hard to get to where we are. I’m passionate about what I do and always give 100 per cent. If I had the opportunity to have any influence in fashion, this is it. I’m not a designer, but I’m passionate about clothes and I know how men want to look. Functionality and durability were key things for me. It’s a “24-hour” collection; clothing guys can look and feel great in from day to night.’
   Celebrities attending the launch included Noomi Rapace, Alexander M. Johnson, Alexander James, David Haye, Oliver Proudlock, Kat Shoob, Camilla Kerslake, and Craig McGinlay.
   The Idris Elba + Superdry Collection reflects the actor’s tastes with deep tonal colours such as midnight blue, graphite grey and jet black, contrasted with cobalt blue. Bomber jackets, mac and trench coats, joggers, Ts, hoods, shirts, and jumpers feature in the range.
   The company identifies the Leading Leather Racer Jacket as the hero piece of the collection, with a down filling, while the Aviator Down Parka has a fur-trimmed hood, monogrammed lining and internal pocket detailing.
   Shown originally in June during London’s menswear fashion week, the collaboration was made available to the public on Thursday, the same day as the launch party.
   The collection is available from Superdry retail stores and via its website.
