Christina Ricci and Dianna Agron have been tapped to star in a campaign for footwear brand Roger Vivier.

The Sleepy Hollow actress and Glee star appear in the short film, titled “Abracashoes”, by the luxury French brand’s creative director Gherardo Felloni, who also makes a cameo in the clip.

In the footage, Ricci plays a magician and shoe thief, who is performing in a theatre. She chooses Agron’s character, who is wearing a pair of black Belle Vivier pumps, from the audience to be her volunteer and she lies down in a box.

Ricci’s illusionist performs a trick in which she saws Agron in half, but then steals the shoes from her feet while she’s stuck in the box and runs away. The clip ends with Agron yelling, “She stole my shoes”, and Fellini, as an audience member, laughing hysterically. Ricci is seen putting the shoes in an empty compartment of her magician’s box, revealing that she has been collecting different versions of the Belle Vivier. She stores the pumps away as she whispers, “Abracashoes”.

Explaining why he chose his campaign stars, Felloni described Ricci as “one of my dream actresses who I really admire” and Agron as “a talented young actress… Her beauty and sex appeal seduced me at first sight.”

Felloni creative directed the film, which was helmed by Nicolangelo Gelormini and styled by Elisa Nadin. It was shot over two days at Milan’s Teatro Gerolamo in December.

Abracashoes is the third film Felloni has made since joining the brand in 2018 – the first one starred French cinema icon Catherine Deneuve and the second featured Thelma & Louise actress Susan Sarandon.

Lea Michele is determined to overhaul her beauty routine in 2020 so that she only uses natural products.

The Glee star told her followers via her Instagram Stories that she wanted to replace all of the products in her home with non-toxic and all-natural alternatives.

“Coming into 2020 I have challenged myself to swap as many products in my home to all-natural products,” the 33-year-old wrote. “This means I’ll eventually transition all of my cleaning products, makeup, and beauty products to non-toxic chemical-free.”

Natural beauty products are made using plant-derived ingredients and no synthetic chemicals while non-toxic products are free from ingredients that have been associated with a toxic response in humans.

Lea proved she is already making good progress with her beauty overhaul by showing her followers what natural products she is now using in her routine.

She has swapped her old haircare products for Rahua’s Classic Shampoo and Voluminous Conditioner, which includes hair-strengthening rahua oil, and is loved by fellow celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian, Miranda Kerr, and Emma Watson.

The actress has also opted for The Honest Company Shampoo + Body Wash and finishes off her morning routine with Necessaire The Body Lotion, which contains moisturising ingredients like marula and jojoba oils.

Lea has switched up her skincare routine too and is using Ursa Major’s Fantastic Face Wash, as the foaming gel features soothing aloe and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), and is free from parabens.

Lea Michele is celebrating married life by showing off her stunning new wedding band.

The former Glee star and new husband Zandy Reich tied the knot on 9 March (19) in Northern California, and now the newlyweds are celebrating life as a married couple in paradise.

The actress updated followers on Instagram Stories by showing off her sparkly new jewellery.

“That wife life,” she captioned the post on Monday (18Mar19).

The couple’s bands are both from XIV Karats, but as Lea and Zandy opted for different styles.

“I went with classic gold,” Reich told People, while the brunette beauty paid tribute to her Jewish heritage with simple diamonds and a thin gold band.

“I didn’t want to take attention away from the beautiful (engagement) ring Zandy created for me,” she says.

Reich proposed to Michele in April, 2018, presenting her with a ring he designed with Leor Yerushalmi and The Jewelers of Las Vegas.

But the rings weren’t the only magical thing about Lea’s big day – the 32 year old has also gushed about her post-ceremony look, created by Monique Lhuillier.

“(She) made this amazing dress for me,” the actress and singer told People. “From her new collection, she has this very sexy, black mini dress with long sleeves, and she (made) it special for me, in white. I could definitely see myself putting that dress on from time to time, if I can fit into it after the wedding. I just love it so much, and I will find an excuse to wear that dress again and again.”

Lea Michele can’t wait to wear her custom wedding reception gown again.

The former Glee star and new husband Zandy Reich tied the knot on Saturday (09Mar19) in an intimate Northern California ceremony, during which the bride wore a stunning Monique Lhuillier ballgown.

But it was her post-ceremony look – another Lhuillier creation – that was the talking point of the nuptials, and a dress Lea didn’t want to take off.

“For the dancing dress after the reception, Monique Lhuillier made this amazing dress for me,” she tells People. “From her new collection, she has this very sexy, black mini dress with long sleeves, and she (made) it special for me, in white.”

“I could definitely see myself putting that dress on from time to time, if I can fit into it after the wedding,” she tells the publication. “I just love it so much, and I will find an excuse to wear that dress again and again.”

The big event gave the 32 year old the chance to collaborate with the designer, who she greatly admires.

“I get chills when I think about Monique, and how much I love her,” she shares. “Monique is so beautiful, and so talented and she let me try on every single dress.”

For Michele, the fitting process was her favourite part of the pre-wedding process.

“In the entire wedding process, that was one of my most favourite moments, being at that fitting with (stylist) Brad (Goreski), and with my mom, and letting my mom see me wearing my wedding dress for the first time was so magical.”

Michele celebrated her nuptials alongside former Glee co-stars Becky Tobin and Darren Criss, who performed during her special day, the show’s creator Ryan Murphy and her best pal Jonathan Groff.

Glee star Kevin McHale conquers digestive issues by getting ripped

Former Glee star Kevin McHale has stunned fans with his body transformation after tackling a 12-week Ultimate Performance Fitness plan.

The 30-year-old actor, who played wheelchair bound Artie Abrams on TV, showed off his ripped new look with before and after photos on Thursday (30Aug18), revealing he had lost 8.2 per cent of body fat and gained five pounds of muscle.

“Simply put, I had become ‘skinny fat,'” he explained of what motivated him to tackle the challenge. “I had been working through an intestinal/digestion issue that was eluding diagnosis and that really took a toll on me. I was constantly in pain, I had tried so many different elimination diets – nothing was working.

“It got to the point where I was already feeling miserable, because the intestinal issues and plus the self-added guilt of not getting myself to the gym or eating as healthily as possible. It was a recipe for disaster. I knew enough was enough for a while, but luckily my friend, Scott Mills, texted me out of the blue about Ultimate Performance coming to L.A. and I jumped at the chance to work with them.”

“Now, I feel good, I feel like I know how to properly workout in a gym, I know how to eat well and most importantly I feel like I came away with the knowledge that I’ll be able to use forever,” he added. “No one is beating you over the head with tons of nutritional information or hardcore training tips, over time you pick up these things and they will sprinkle in little ways to help.

“All of that leads to long-term success, a success that you can manage and maintain. I feel confident about that, which for me says something.”

McHale has also shared a sample of his work-out plan and diet, which included plenty of eggs for breakfast, chicken thighs for lunch and lean beef mince for dinner.

He supplemented his three meals a day with treats like plant-based protein powder, hemp milk, and bananas.

Lea Michele will be wearing the first wedding dress she tried on when she weds Zandy Reich.

The former Glee actress began dating AYR clothing brand executive Zandy in July 2017, with the pair getting engaged in April.

Lea and Zandy threw a star-studded engagement party to celebrate their love last weekend, but it appears that the star is already working on wedding plans as she has confirmed to PeopleStyle that she had no hesitation over what gown to wear on her big day.

“I saw a photo, it was the first one I tried on and it was the one that I picked,” she told the publication of her dress. “I’m a very decisive person so they said I was one of the easiest brides that they have ever dealt with.”

Lea didn’t share any further details about the style or designer of the wedding gown. But she did indicate that it will complement the four-carat diamond engagement ring Zandy gave her.

“He really took care of everything himself,” the 31-year-old said of her gorgeous bling. “I think he knows me well enough but I give him all of the credit, and obviously the designer, but he really surprised me and did an amazing job.”

Lea and Zandy’s engagement party on Saturday was attended by a number of celebrities, including Ashley Tisdale, Emma Roberts, Hilary Duff, Billie Lourd and JoAnna Garcia Swisher.

The actress, who previously dated her late Glee co-star Cory Monteith, shared snaps from the event on her Instagram page and explained that the date was important to her because her parents Edith and Mark had also just celebrated their wedding anniversary.

“My incredible parents celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary Friday,” she captioned a snap of her and her mother and father. “I picked out my wedding dress (yesterday) and today is our engagement party. And I look up to you both so much and we love you both more than you know.”

Actress and singer Lea Michele took to Instagram on Tuesday (03Jul18) to share her post-tour relaxation routine with fans.

The star has been on the road with former Glee castmate Darren Criss for a series of shows throughout the U.S. and during some downtime in New York, the 31-year-old unwound with a trip to the spa.

Michele documented her routine via a video story on the photo sharing site – first showing herself wrapped in a towel at Kollectiv, a retreat centre in Manhattan’s East Village.

The footage also included her lounging in an infrared sauna with an IV drip hooked up to her arm, pumping fluids into her system. To wrap up, the brunette beauty enjoyed cryotherapy, which requires the use of a big freeze cyrotank and helps heal damaged tissue. Finally, Lea kicked back with a healthy snack of kombucha, a shot of ginger juice and a vegan maki roll.

Michele wrapped her tour on Sunday (01Jul18) in Charlotte, North Carolina, and marked the occasion the following day, sharing an image of herself relaxing in bed on social media, expressing her wish to relax after an exciting series of shows.

“You can find me here,” she captioned the post. “After 15 cities… 20 something flights… all in 4 weeks! What an incredible month it’s been. So grateful to have the opportunity to sing and see so many amazing places all over our country. Now it’s summer vaca (vacation) time!”

And Michele was still living the dream two days later as she marked American’s Independence Day holiday by posting a snap of herself in a bathing suit sporting a prominent tan line.

Actress Lea Michele calls on pal and former Glee castmate Becca Tobin for support when she needs strength to power through intense workouts.

The former TV co-stars exercise together all the time and their friendship really gets Lea going in the gym.

“We both really love hot yoga,” she tells Us Weekly magazine. “We do hot yoga a lot together. She’s a Barry’s Bootcamp (intense cardio) person, which I can’t do for the life of me and she tries to get me to come do it.”

Although Lea can’t bear the high intensity cardio training at the Los Angeles gym chain, the 31-year-old reveals she and Becca often partner up to sweat it out on the stationary bike in cycling classes.

The two ladies love to cycle with each other so much, they decided to put one of their fitness sessions to good use by raising money for charity and hosting a spin class to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles last Sunday (25Mar18).

“I just think that this is so great. We are not only best friends, but we work out together all the time. So getting an opportunity to come and do something that we do all the time already together, but do it for a really incredible, great cause, feels so organic and for fun for us at the same time,” she smiled.

Although Lea is fuelled by Becca’s workout enthusiasm, she is a lone soldier when it comes to dieting, revealing she has enough willpower to stay on track when it comes to the foods she eats.

“Balancing out working out with eating well (is essential). For me, that’s key,” she stresses. “I think that a large majority of wellness comes from what we put in our bodies, but you always have to work out. You have to do both.”
