News in brief: Keira Knightley at Begin Again première; Germany wins American Crew competition


April 29, 2014/14.25

On the closing night of the Tribeca Film Festival, Keira Knightley was centre of attention as the lead in Begin Again, whose première was hosted by Chanel.
   Staying true to the brand she represents, Knightley wore a pastel green, mauve and white lamé bodice, embroidered with green, pink and light blue pearls, with a pastel green, mauve, white tulle and organza skirt, from the spring–summer 2014 haute couture collection. At the after-party, it was Chanel spring 2014 couture again, with an above-the-knee corseted dress in powder pink crepe, with slightly flared sleeves above the elbow.
   Staying with Europe: American Crew has held its global men’s grooming competition at the Meo Arena in Lisboa, where Jerome Kantner of Mainz won the 2013–14 All-Star Challenge, and is now recognized as one of the top men’s hairstylists in the world.
   The competition attracted 1,100 stylists from 18 countries, with the final seeing entrants from Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the US.
   ‘Jerome’s look exudes classic American Crew with meticulous barbering skills and refined proportions,’ said Craig Hanson, American Crew creative director. ‘The wardrobe styling was fresh and masculine, and the art direction perfectly captured an authentic message of the modern man.’
   Judges were Raccuglia; Hanson; Sandra Nygaard, Senior Fashion and Grooming Director, Men’s Health; Sergi Bancells, General Manager USA, Spain and Latin America, Estetica; and Pedro José Muñoz, 2012–13 All-Star Challenge Global Champion.
   Meanwhile, Living Nature has also picked up an accolade. The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible has named its foundation its best, following on from acclaim in the Natural Beauty Awards 2014 in the UK. The Bible’s Sarah Stacey and Josephine Fairley noted, ‘This is the highest score for a natural foundation in our books—an impressive achievement for the New Zealand brand’s 100% natural formulation.’
