Margot Robbie had fun with feathers at the world premiere of Birds of Prey in London on Wednesday night.

The actress, who reprises the role of Harley Quinn in Cathy Yan’s new superhero movie, stepped out at the BFI IMAX in a black silk skirt from Dries Van Noten along with a bralet top with black feathers attached and hot pink gloves.

A photo posted by stylist Kate Young on Instagram also showed Margot posing with a piece of mustard yellow silk around her arms, but the star must have decided to ditch that particular accessory before hitting the red carpet.

Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett was tasked with styling the 29-year-old’s blonde hair into textured waves, while her make-up artist Pati Dubroff played up the colours of her outfit by painting gold glitter onto her eyelids and giving her a slick of pink lipstick.

However, Margot wasn’t the only Birds of Prey castmember to opt for feathers at the event. Jurnee Smollett-Bell, who portrays Black Canary, opted for a quirky black ensemble with feathers attached to the hem of the skirt from Guy Laroche.

And the Australian shared in a chat with Entertainment Tonight that she and her colleagues had unexpectedly coordinated outfits regularly on the press tour.

“We’ve now started texting each other before getting ready. We’re like, ‘What are you wearing? OK, you are wearing black-and-white checkers. I was gonna wear that.’ But now we keep doubling up. I think we’re all just on the same page,” she smiled.

Elsewhere, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Huntress, made a statement in a long red Zuhair Murad gown with a pleated skirt and bow detailing on the shoulders. She accessorised with a dice-shaped purse and jewellery from Bondeye and EF Collection.

Filmmaker Cathy, as well as co-stars Rosie Perez, Chris Messina, and Ella Jay Basco, were also in attendance.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits cinemas from 5 February.

Sylvester Stallone ditches jet-black locks for natural grey hair

Sylvester Stallone has ditched the jet-black hair dye and finally embraced his natural grey hair.

The 73-year-old debuted the new ‘do in a video on Instagram on Tuesday and showcased his silver hair and beard while delivering an empowering message to his 11.7 million followers.

“Keep punching my friends,” Stallone said while travelling in the back of a car. “Sometimes I wake up I feel like doing nothing. Just relaxing. Just very true. If anyone says different, they’re lying – it’s human nature. Then you roll over, get a little mad at yourself, and realise to get anywhere you’ve got to make a deposit in the GOAL BANK. So, I’ll go back to my favourite phrase and do it!!”

Stallone originally planned to follow in the footsteps of his hairdresser father before he became a Hollywood star, and hairstylist Michelle Pugh told People back in 2017 that The Expendables star has even coloured the hair of his three daughters.

“He coloured Sistine and Sophia’s hair blonde when they were younger, and Scarlet had some lightening he had done on her a few months back. He is very much the stamp of approval on whether or not we’ve done a good job,” she shared.

Fans were supportive of Stallone’s hair transformation, with one commenting: “Proud of you with the silver hair,” while another wrote, “Stay true to the grey!! Looks good on ya!”

Hailey Bieber has hit back at trolls who have criticised her “crooked and scary” pinky fingers.

The model took to Instagram on Tuesday night to address negative comments about the appearance of her hands, following the debut of her popstar husband Justin Bieber’s Seasons docuseries.

“OK, let’s get into the pinky conversation… because I’ve made fun of myself about this for forever so I might as well just tell everyone else why they’re so crooked and scary,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories.

Hailey then shared a screen capture from a Wikipedia page and explained that she suffers from a condition called ectrodactyly.

“It causes my pinky finger to look the way they do. It’s genetic, I’ve had it my whole life. So, people can stop asking me ‘WTF (what the f**k) is wrong with her pinky fingers’ here is what’s wrong,” the 23-year-old stated, adding: “Please stop roasting me about my pinky fingers.”

Ectrodactyly is a rare form of a congenital disorder in which the development of the hand is disturbed. Other celebrities with ectrodactyly include radio talk show host and actress Bree Walker, as well as Lee Hee-ah, a Korean pianist with only two fingers on each hand.

New episodes of Seasons, which details the Sorry hitmaker’s comeback with new album Changes and battle with Lyme disease following years away from the spotlight, debuts Mondays and Wednesdays on YouTube.

Gigi Hadid is to help judge the upcoming LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers.

The 24-year-old will work alongside 68 people from the world of fashion and media, including Italian model and influencer Chiara Ferragni, in an effort by the organisers of the competition to appeal to a younger audience.

Gigi will also serve as ambassador in March, when the semi-finalists show their collections to a panel of industry figures, according to editors at WWD.

The model joins influencers Caroline Daur and Leaf Greener, and six other newcomers, including Ibrahim Kamara, senior fashion editor at large for i-D magazine, Natalie Kingham from Matches fashion, and Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo.

Delphine Arnault, executive vice president of Louis Vuitton, thanked the new additions for the “commitment” to the prestigious fashion prize.

“They are witnesses and essential actors of fashion. Their vision helps to discover the most promising talents. I would like to thank them warmly for their loyalty and commitment to our cause,” she said in a statement.

The winner will be decided by a jury comprised of designers from top LVMH fashion houses such as Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Christian Dior, and Givenchy.

The prize is open to designers under the age of 40 who have presented and sold at least two collections of women’s, men’s or unisex ready-to-wear.

A cash prize of $330,000 (£254,000), plus a year of coaching from experts, is up for grabs.

Doutzen Kroes uses acupuncture to ‘plump and lift’ her face

Doutzen Kroes uses acupuncture to combat signs of ageing on her face.

The Dutch supermodel is one of the most in-demand names in the fashion industry, having scored major gigs with the likes of L’Oreal and Victoria’s Secret.

Yet, Doutzen has noticed changes to the texture of her skin in recent years, with her right eye now appearing smaller than her left – but instead of trying Botox or fillers, she is opting for regular “facial rejuvenation acupuncture” sessions.

Noting that her acupuncturist Cas Rooseboom promised her that her face will “look a little more plump” after 10 sessions, the 35-year-old explained in a video for her YouTube channel, “(My face) will have a little bit of a lift. Like, how I would like to be my face is just a little bit more (lifted). It’s not a big difference, but I just feel like my face since a few years has… I don’t know how to explain it… It’s just falling apart.”

Doutzen went on to show how Cas inserts acupuncture needles into her face, hands, and feet, with the theory being that the process will mean “there will be collagen pushed into my face”.

And while the mother-of-two emphasised that ageing is normal, she is determined to do all she can to keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay for as long as possible.

“Because I’m working in the fashion industry people look at me more up close and are maybe looking at ageing a different way. I feel like I’m dealing with insecurities as well when I come to set, and I haven’t seen someone for 10 years and, obviously, I look different now than I did 10 years ago. I like to think that I don’t care about it, but I do,” she shared. “I do care, and I do everything I can to slow down the ageing process. I do facials, I choose very carefully what I put into my body, I have a very active lifestyle, and recently, I discovered acupuncture.”

Designer Misha Nonoo is pregnant with her first child.

Nonoo, who is known for her eponymous line of women’s ready-to-wear clothing and her friendship with Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has revealed that she is preparing to welcome a baby boy.

“We are so thrilled, it’s just really exciting. It’s a very grateful time of life,” she told People. “It’s pure magic. I’m so excited to meet our little baby when he comes!”

The New York-based designer shared that she is enjoying her pregnancy and has got “just a little bit longer to go” before she gives birth.

“I feel very lucky. I’ve had a wonderful pregnancy so far,” Nonoo added. “I think it’s just magical to think that as women we can actually create human life within us, so anytime that I feel tired or a little bit under the weather, I just remind myself of that and the great gift that is. It’s just an extraordinary journey.”

The pregnancy inspired the fashion star, who married Michael Hess in Rome last September, to launch a maternity line in collaboration with HATCH. Nonoo has created a button-down shirt and a shirt dress that are available in white, blue, and black and white stripe fabric – with the items inspired by her Husband Shirt. The pieces are designed to be worn before, throughout, and after pregnancy.

“A lot of my friends who have children already said the Husband Shirt is amazing because often when you’re breastfeeding you need to be able to open your blouse and you need to be able to do that with one hand frequently, and with the style of the Husband Shirt, it lends itself to that already, so we worked with HATCH on a proper maternity fit for both the shirt and the dress,” she commented.

The maternity line launched on her official website on Wednesday.

Alexa Chung urges shoppers to buy vintage clothing

Alexa Chung has urged shoppers to ditch fast fashion and invest in vintage clothes instead.

The model and designer, who is currently co-hosting the new Netflix series Next In Fashion with Queer Eye stylist Tan France, is adamant it is still possible to follow current trends without buying from brands that mass produce items.

“Loads of fashion ideas or trends are regurgitated from the past so you could just buy vintage things,” the 36-year-old told BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat. “They’re readily available, easy and cheap – about three things I’m wearing now are vintage. ”

Alexa also has her own eponymous clothing line, which she was keen to make available to hire for those who would not be able to afford to buy her pieces off the rack.

“It’s something celebrities have the luxury of doing because they borrow from a fashion house and then they send it back and they’re just wearing it for one event,” she explained. “Sharing clothes is such a brilliant idea because it’s true that you might want something special for one occasion, but you don’t want to keep it in your wardrobe.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the TV presenter shared her excitement over Next In Fashion, insisting the programme gives up and coming designers a chance to shine.

“It’s quite typical that you can be one of the most talented people at a company but you’re not necessarily the name of the house. This show gives them a chance if they want to start their own brand and really drive their business forward,” Alexa shared.

Alexa and Tan will serve as both co-hosts and judges on Next In Fashion, as they critique the contestants’ offerings alongside famous faces including designer Tommy Hilfiger, model Adriana Lima, and celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart.

The winner will be awarded a $250,000 (£191,500) cash prize, as well as the chance to create a range for Net-a-Porter.

Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are in talks to make a fifth Lethal Weapon film.

During a recent interview for The Hollywood Reporter’s Producers Roundtable, producer Dan Lin confirmed that he and director Richard Donner are close to bringing Gibson and Glover’s characters, Detective Martin Riggs and Detective Roger Murtaugh, back to the big screen, 22 years after the release of the last movie.

“We’re trying to make the last Lethal Weapon movie. And Dick Donner’s coming back. The original cast is coming back. And it’s just amazing. The story is very personal to him,” he commented. “Mel and Danny are ready to go, so it’s about the script.”

Donner directed all four films in the franchise, with the first Lethal Weapon released in 1987 and the last instalment of the buddy cop flicks unveiled in 1998.

Gibson previously indicated he’d be up for a return, and during a conversation on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America in 2017, commented: “You know, I went to see Dan the other night. He was doing a theatre production in L.A. of a play he made great (sic) 17 years ago, he reprised it. I went to see him with Donner… so we got to talking, so yeah, maybe.”

However, Donner shared during a chat on the Maitlin on Movies podcast in early 2018 that he doubted the project would move forward due to legal problems with the franchise’s studio, Warner Bros., noting negotiations with bosses had been “counter-productive”.

Jason Statham and Kevin Hart are reportedly in talks to team up for new action comedy The Man From Toronto.

The Hobbs & Shaw star will play the world’s deadliest assassin, who reluctantly joins forces with loser Teddy, played by funnyman Hart, after a case of mistaken identity leaves the fate of the world on their shoulders, according to Deadline.

The movie is not related to 1933’s The Man From Toronto, which starred Jessie Matthews and Ian Hunter, and was based on the play by Douglas Murray.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard director Patrick Hughes, who previously worked with Statham on The Expendables 3, will oversee the project, with Robbie Fox penning the script based on a story from Jason Blumenthal.

Hart and Statham briefly shared scenes in last year’s Hobbs & Shaw, which also starred their frequent collaborator Dwayne Johnson.

Sony Pictures officials are eyeing a 20 November release for The Man From Toronto, with production expected to begin in March, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hart is currently revelling in the huge success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel, Jumanji: The Next Level, which has made over $738 million (£568 million) worldwide since its release in December.

The 40-year-old funnyman has also wrapped on upcoming drama Fatherhood, which will be released in January 2021.

Meanwhile, Statham recently reunited with Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch director Guy Ritchie for the revenge action thriller, Cash Truck, which has just finished filming.

Jodie Foster to direct Mona Lisa theft movie

Jodie Foster is set to direct a film about the 1911 theft of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

The project will be based on Seymour Reit’s 1981 book The Day They Stole the Mona Lisa, which delves into how Vincenzo Peruggia, an employee of the Louvre museum in Paris, had managed to steal the portrait and walk out with it hidden under his coat.

Confirming the news to Deadline at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, producer Jeffrey Soros noted that he expects the film to be a thrilling drama.

“This happened in 1911, and it was the thing that made the Mona Lisa so famous… We have got a whole new script for Jodie Foster to direct,” he told the publication. “This is in the mould of (classic movie) The Thomas Crown Affair… It is a fun story, and the crime itself is not sophisticated. Our story mixes truth and fiction, and the focus is on the characters behind orchestrating the theft.”

An Italian patriot, Peruggia believed the famous painting should be exhibited in Italy, and ultimately kept it in his apartment for two years before being caught trying to sell it to an art dealer in Florence. The Mona Lisa was returned to the Louvre in 1914, with Peruggia serving six months in prison over the crime.

Screenwriter Bill Wheeler, known for his work on films like Queen of Katwe, Ghost in the Shell, and The Lego Ninjago movie, will pen the script.

Meanwhile, the film marks Foster’s next major directing gig, with the Oscar-winning actress previously having helmed 1991’s Little Man Tate, 1995’s Home for the Holidays, 2011’s The Beaver, and 2016’s Money Monster.
