Tallulah Willis was determined for her fashion label to be size-inclusive, and would not negotiate otherwise.

The 26-year-old, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, launched Wyllis in January, with the brand recently adding childrenswear and shoes to its offerings.

Talking to Tatler about the sizing, which ranges from XS to 3XL, Tallulah revealed she would not budge when it came to offering a varied range of sizes.

“It was one of my absolute non-negotiables before I even designed my pieces or knew what extended sizing would entail. I always felt that I would rather sacrifice the number of pieces we had per collection for quality fabrics and broader size range,” she detailed.

The range also benefits The Loveland Foundation, with 10 per cent of proceeds being donated to the charity, which supports people of colour.

Asked about her own style inspirations, Tallulah didn’t have to look very far.

“I think being a fly on the wall at various fittings and photoshoots throughout my early adolescense really cemented my love for clothing, and the whimsical fantasy it can create,” she smiled. “My style icons are my mom and my sisters.”

And she added: “I will always hold a special place in my heart for Prada. There’s something fundamentally chic about the way that Miuccia has created over the years. I also feel like the innovation that Alber Elbaz brought to Lanvin during his time there was pretty magnificent.”

Demi Moore has ditched her brunette locks for a platinum blonde bob.

The 57-year-old actress took to Instagram to debut the dramatic new look, which she told fans was for her character on the new futuristic TV series, Brave New World.

“Meet Linda. #BraveNewWorld is streaming now on @peacocktv!” Demi wrote alongside the snap.

It’s not yet clear if the Ghost star actually had her long brunette hair chopped up to her shoulders, or if she was wearing a wig.

Her daughter Tallulah Willis was impressed by the new ‘do, and shared the love in the comments on her mother’s photo.

“LINDAAAAAA,” the 26-year-old wrote. “WE STANNNNN LINDA. Tbh (to be honest) you blonde is a whole new truth I didn’t know I needed.”

“Ohhhh she’s BLONDE! Werk!” celebrity stylist Brad Goreski added.

Fans also took to the comments to share their shock at the transformation, with many pointing out the look is similar to that of her character in the 1991 romantic comedy The Butcher’s Wife.

“Brings me back to memories of The Butcher’s wife! Stunning as a blonde!” one wrote, while another added: “Now I want to watch the Butcher’s Wife too!”

Brave New World, which also stars Joseph Morgan, Alden Ehrenreich and Hannah John-Kamen, is set in the year 2540 and follows the citizens of a seemingly idyllic utopian society in London, who begin to unravel when their world isn’t as perfect as it originally seemed.

The adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel is available to watch on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s new streaming service.

KJ Apa and Sofia Carson have been cast as the leads in the upcoming pandemic thriller Songbird.

The Riverdale actor and Descendants star will play star-crossed lovers in the movie, which started filming in Los Angeles last week. They join a cast which includes Demi Moore, Bradley Whitford, Craig Robinson, Jenna Ortega, Paul Walter Hauser, and Peter Stormare.

New Zealand-born actor Apa shared the casting announcement on his Instagram Stories and wrote in the caption, “Very excited for this. Such a strong team.” Carson also retweeted the news.

The independent thriller, produced by Michael Bay, is set two years in the future, when the current coronavirus pandemic is still raging and has become even more serious as the virus continues to mutate. The story follows an essential worker, played by Apa, who has a rare immunity. Like the vast majority of people, his girlfriend, played by Carson, is locked within her home, and the couple has no ability to physically be together. To be with the one he loves, he must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful, well-connected family, led by a matriarch played by Moore, who will stop at nothing to protect her family and maintain her way of life.

Songbird, which is being directed by Adam Mason from a script he co-wrote with Simon Boyes, is one of the first projects to go into production in America following with the lifting of the lockdown, although it was briefly shut down by actors’ union SAG-AFTRA.

Apa has played Archie Andrews in teen series Riverdale since 2017 and has also starred in movies such as The Hate U Give and I Still Believe. Carson, who lead the short-lived TV show Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, was recently seen in Netflix dance movie Feel the Beat.

Michael Bay’s pandemic thriller Songbird hit with ‘do not work order’ by actors’ union

Actors’ union SAG-AFTRA has urged its members to refuse work on Michael Bay’s pandemic thriller Songbird.

It was announced back in May that the low-budget apocalyptic flick, produced by Bay, would begin shooting in Los Angeles, but officials have denounced the plans, citing concerns over safety amid the coronavirus pandemic, and issued a “do not work” order.

The union said production company On A Lark Productions LLC had “failed to complete the signatory process and is therefore not signed to any applicable SAG-AFTRA agreement.”

They also warned members that they may be disciplined if they work on Songbird while the “do not work” order is in place.

“The producers have not been transparent about their safety protocols and that is something we obviously take very seriously. Also, as noted in the Do Not Work order, the producers have not yet become signatory to our agreement. We have no further comment,” a SAG-AFTRA spokesperson said on Thursday.

According to Deadline, Demi Moore and Craig Robinson will star in the movie alongside Paul Walter Hauser and Peter Stormare.

The independent thriller is set two years in the future, and follows a delivery man who has a rare immunity to the virus, and must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful, well-connected family, to be reunited with his girlfriend.

Songbird, which will be in the same vein as hit found-footage films such as Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity, will be directed by Adam Mason from a script he co-wrote with Simon Boyes.

It was also reported that the cast and crew would be abiding by strict social distancing guidelines during filming, and were being trained remotely by the production team.

Demi Moore and Craig Robinson have signed up to star in a thriller based on the current coronavirus pandemic.

It was announced in May that Transformers director Michael Bay would be producing Songbird, which is set two years in the future, when the pandemic is still raging and has become even more serious as the virus continues to mutate.

It has now been revealed by editors at Deadline that Ghost star Moore and This is the End’s Robinson will star in the movie alongside Richard Jewell actor Paul Walter Hauser and Fargo’s Peter Stormare.

The independent thriller follows an essential worker, a delivery man, who has a rare immunity. Like the vast majority of people, his girlfriend is locked within her home, and the couple has no ability to physically be together. To be with the one he loves, the protagonist must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful, well-connected family, led by a matriarch played by Moore, who will stop at nothing to protect her family and maintain her way of life.

Songbird, which will be in the same vein as found-footage thrillers like Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity, will be directed by Adam Mason from a script he co-wrote with Simon Boyes. It will begin shooting in Los Angeles “imminently” and is set to be one of the first films to begin production as Hollywood gets back on its feet following the coronavirus lockdown.

The cast and crew will abide by strict social distancing guidelines and the actors are reportedly being trained remotely by the production team.

Emily Ratajkowski: ‘I capitalise off my image for survival’

Emily Ratajkowski has insisted she uses her sexy image for “survival” in the entertainment industry.

The model/actress, who shot to fame back in 2012 after starring in Robin Thicke’s controversial music video for his hit song Blurred Lines, has discussed her career in an interview for British GQ magazine.

In the chat, Emily asserted that she’s worked hard to control her image because she didn’t expect to become famous.

“I think, for me, the way I use my image and as a model and capitalise off of it has been very much about survival, rather than a representation of who I am,” she told the publication. “Modelling was an amazing way to make money and gain stability; fame came with that and it was a bizarre thing. Fame wasn’t something I had really expected or really wanted – although deep down probably every 20-year-old girl wants to be famous a little bit.”

The Gone Girl star went on to explain that she has previously misjudged women in the public eye based on their appearance, including her hero Demi Moore.

“I realised I had made assumptions about Demi Moore too. I definitely wrote her off a little bit, as an actress, because she was so sexy, because she had that body. And I’m Em Rata, so that’s seriously ironic. It just goes to show how deeply internalised misogyny is,” the 28-year-old shared.

Elsewhere in the interview, Emily revealed that her upcoming book will about her becoming a “victim” of her own image.

“I’d say it’s like a memoir, but with added political thinking,” she added. “I’m trying to use my experience as a model and someone who has capitalised on their image and also someone who has been maybe a victim of their image.”

Dior has incited a call for female solidarity with its latest fashion collection.

Creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri unveiled her fall/winter 2020 line at the Jardin des Tuileries as part of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, with the presentation attracting celebrities such as Sigourney Weaver, Andie MacDowell, Cara Delevingne, Demi Moore, Nina Dobrev, Rachel Brosnahan, Karlie Kloss, and Alexa Chung.

The entrance to the space was decorated with a sign featuring the ambiguous phrase “I Say I”, a reference to the work of collective feminist artist Claire Fontaine as well as the introduction to the manifesto of art critic-turned-feminist activist Carla Lonzi. In addition, illuminated signs with slogans such as “Consent,” “Women’s Love is Unpaid Labour,” “Women are the Moon that Moves the Tides,” and “Patriarchy Kills Love,” were installed in the venue.

“They are the symbol of a joyful singularity, as well as a creative and collective way of approaching the multiple aspects of feminine subjectivity – and the infinite project that femininity represents,” a Dior representative explained of the concept.

To begin, the spectacle kicked off with model Ruth Bell walking the runway in a black suit, white shirt, black tie, fishnet tights, and Mary Jane-style flats.

A number of black outfits followed, with the looks toughened up via the addition of bandanas, tights, and combat boots. Elsewhere, a ’70s vibe was evident in long, embroidered dresses, miniskirts, and pleats and fringe detailing, while Chiuri also drew upon former creative director Marc Bohan’s use of check fabric in his designs during his 30-year-old stint at the French house, as well as founder Christian Dior’s love of the fabric.

To conclude, the designer offered up a selection of chic separates, with highlights including striped metallic gowns, Grecian-inspired dresses with finely pleated skirts and drapery, as well as relaxed takes on classic menswear tailoring and suits.

Gwyneth Paltrow asked guests to wear no make-up to her intimate Goop beauty event on Wednesday.

The 47-year-old encouraged her famous friends, including Demi Moore and daughter Rumer Willis, Erin Foster, Kate Hudson, Rachel Zoe, and Samantha Ronson, to arrive without wearing concealer, foundation, and mascara.

Instead, she told them they could enhance their natural complexion with her GOOPGLOW beauty products, such as their hyaluronic acid and vitamin C-infused serum.

“No make up, no filter. An amazing gathering of some of the best women on planet earth,” Gwyneth wrote on Instagram, alongside snapshots of the bash.

Before the event, guests received a three-piece GOOPGLOW starter kit, which featured five packs of skin-supporting ingestible powder supplements, an overnight peel, and body luminiser.

Attendees then dined on an antioxidant-boosting menu, with dishes including salmon steak with kale, and in between courses, Chinese medicine practitioner Laura Erlich offered treatments to target stress, sleep, and anxiety, according to Vogue.com.

Guests were also treated to a conversation, led by artist Alexandra Grant, about the perception of beauty and ageing.

“What an incredible night makeup-free with these extraordinary women. Thank YOU both for sharing your light, love and wisdom!” Demi wrote on social media, alongside a snap of her with Gwyneth and Alexandra. “Beauty is more than what you see, it is what you feel. So grateful to be included in such a powerful, memorable and meaningful evening! #goopglow.”

Gwyneth also took to Instagram to thank her guests for embracing her unusual request.

“A beautiful gathering in celebration of beauty just the way we come,” the Oscar winner gushed.

Tallulah Willis has honoured her mother Demi Moore by recreating her iconic pixie bowl cut.

The 25-year-old daughter of Demi and Bruce Willis showed off the ’90s-inspired look on Instagram, and told her followers: “We did the Demi.”

Alongside her mirror selfie, Tallulah posted movie stills of her mother rocking the look to honour the actress further.

Demi, who debuted the infamous hairstyle in the 1990 romantic drama Ghost, shared her daughter’s snap on her own Instagram page.

“Like mother, like daughter,” the 57-year-old sweetly wrote.

Tallulah later posted another snap on her Instagram Stories of her rocking the retro cut, and acknowledged the obvious family resemblance by writing in the caption: “YUNG DEMMY THO (sic).”

Her older sister Rumer Willis gave the new ‘do her seal of approval by commenting: “So good,” while their sibling Scout Willis added: “Omg (oh my God) this is my new favorite photo of you, you are so beautiful i am shook and shaking.”

Actress Selma Blair also gushed over Tallulah’s “chic” new look, while American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson wrote, “Living for this hair.”

Last month, Tallulah opened up about her turbulent relationship with Demi during an episode of Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith and discussed how she always felt detached from her mother because she chose to hold back things from her past.

“I think it always made me feel very far away from her. And (it) always made me feel like I didn’t know her very well. I knew she had a career, she met my dad, she grew up in New Mexico, but it was like that was it,” Tallulah explained in the emotional conversation.

Prabal Gurung has named dressing former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama as his biggest fashion moment.

The designer celebrated the 10th anniversary of his eponymous brand and the release of his forthcoming self-titled book with a star-studded bash in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, opened up about the highs and lows of his decade in the industry.

Gurung shared some of his most memorable moments dressing famous faces – including Demi Moore and Oprah Winfrey – but it was creating not one but two dresses in the space of a few months for Obama that was the pinnacle of the 40-year-old’s career.

“The biggest moment for me was when First Lady Michelle Obama wore (the brand) because it validated my mom’s desire. I told her, ‘I’m dressing all these celebrities.’ And she said, ‘Let’s talk,’ and told me why I should dress Michelle Obama. A year later, when I dressed her, I was in Paris and I called my mom,” Gurung recalled.

The former First Lady initially wore Prabal Gurung in March 2010, with the Nepalese-American designer then creating a custom gown for her to wear for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in May later that same year.

Olivia Munn, Laverne Cox, Rachel Zoe, Joan Smalls, Jaime King, and Law Roach were among the guests at the intimate bash too, and Gurung went on to emphasise his desire to keep championing inclusivity and social issues during his shows.

“I came to America as an immigrant with a dream of becoming a fashion designer almost 20 years ago. Tonight is about celebrating people who are different. It’s a celebration of people who are misfits. Whether you’re in the film industry, whether you’re in fashion, any creative field. We all know how it feels to be different,” he shared.
