Jason Momoa has cemented his status as a style star by rocking a blush pink satin suit to the premiere of his new TV show.

The 40-year-old walked the red carpet alongside his wife Lisa Bonet for the debut of his Apple TV series See on Monday night, wearing the show-stopping Tom Ford suit, a grey cashmere sweater, an opal and turquoise statement necklace, as well as a pair of light grey suede Christian Louboutin boots with a stacked heel.

In a series of posts on his Instagram Stories, Momoa revealed that the necklace was made by Amie Hertzig and was “a very special gift from my wife”.

The former Game of Thrones star accessorised the look with numerous rings from Leroys Wooden Tattoos, Into the Fire Jewelry, Richard Baggett Studios, and Ossua Et Acroamata.

Meanwhile, Bonet stunned in a chic wide-legged black trouser suit and matching heels. She accessorised with several rope necklaces.

Momoa plays leading man Baba Voss in his new series, which is set in a dystopian future where all of humanity has lost the sense of sight. The show, created by Peaky Blinders’ Steven Knight, follows Voss as his wife gives birth to a set of twins who can see.

It isn’t the first time that Momoa has rocked a pink look on the red carpet.

Earlier this year, he sent social media into meltdown when he arrived for the Oscars wearing a custom-designed Karl Lagerfeld pink velvet dinner jacket with matching trousers, along with a pink scrunchie on his wrist in case he needed to pin his long wavy locks up during the event.

And the actor has even created his very own pink sneaker with outdoor brand So iLL. Momoa designed the capsule collection, which includes a series of bags and shoes in a colour he has named Dirty Pink.

Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman marked their wedding with custom “Just Married” jackets.

The Big Little Lies star married the 31-year-old actor and musician at her father Lenny Kravitz’s 18th century mansion in Paris, France on 29 June, and Karl has now shared a sweet detail from their intimate nuptials.

“I believe our stars were written before we met, ‘Karl + Zoe, ride or die into the sunset…'” he captioned a photo on Instagram which showed the couple embracing hours after becoming newlyweds.

In the snap, the Nocturnal Animals star shows off the back of his custom black leather jacket, which features a big heart filled with clouds and a portrait of the 30-year-old X-Men: First Class actress and an unfurled scroll across the bottom of the jacket which reads, “Just Married.”

Zoe also had a matching jacket which featured a portrait of her new husband in the heart.

Karl later tagged artist Samantha Urbani as the creator of the unique piece of artwork on the jacket and wrote: “@samandude made the COOLEST jackets EVER!”

The artist shared a video of the duo dancing in their new jackets and wrote, “Only the coolest couple could inspire the coolest jackets, it was almost as fun making them as watching you get down in them.”

The couple exchanged vows in a chic Parisian ceremony in front of guests including her mother Lisa Bonet, her stepfather Jason Momoa, and her Big Little Lies co-stars Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Reese Witherspoon.

Many of the famous faces invited to the wedding had also joined the bride and groom at their rehearsal dinner at the Laperouse restaurant the night before the nuptials.

Zoe and Karl began dating in 2016, and became engaged in February last year.

Jason Momoa to star in new Netflix revenge thriller

Jason Momoa is set to star in a new revenge thriller for streaming giant Netflix.

In Sweet Girl, the Aquaman actor will play a husband devastated by his wife’s death who vows to bring those responsible for her demise to justice, while protecting the only surviving member of his family, his daughter.

Brian Andrew Mendoza will make his directorial debut on the feature, with the producer having previously worked with Momoa on action drama Braven and Netflix’s historical drama series Frontier. Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson are to produce, while Martin Kistler will serve as executive producer.

“I’m excited to partner with Netflix once again,” the 39-year-old said in a statement. “I’m putting a dream team together from Brad and Jeff to my best friend, Brian, who has been my partner for over 10 years. It’s a dream come true to collaborate with him and deliver his vision.”

Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner wrote the screenplay, with additions and revisions by Will Staples.

And Fierson commented that the project was the “perfect vehicle” for Mendoza.

“Brad and I are ecstatic about bringing another project to Netflix, who have truly made us feel like we have a home to make groundbreaking original features and series,” he praised. “Additionally, Jason and Brian are like family, so to re-team with them on a movie after working for three seasons of Frontier, is a dream come true. When we first read this script, we knew there was only one actor who could bring the gravitas and depth to the role of Cooper, and that’s Jason. And this is the perfect vehicle for Brian to make his directorial debut.”

Momoa, who is perhaps most famous for his role as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, is also set to appear in the upcoming Apple series See and recently wrapped production on the highly-anticipated reboot of Dune.

Fendi has honoured the late Karl Lagerfeld with its fall/winter 2019-2020 couture show.

The German couturier, who had served as the Italian label’s creative director of fur and women’s ready-to-wear since 1965, died at the age of 85 in February.

Accordingly, menswear and accessories designer Silvia Venturini Fendi took the opportunity to honour the godfather of fashion at the latest high-end presentation, which was held at the Palatine Hill and overlooked the Colosseum in Rome on Thursday night.

Titled The Dawn of Romanity, and with the likes of Susan Sarandon, Zendaya, Jason Momoa and wife Lisa Bonet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Zoey Deutch, and Kiernan Shipka, in attendance, Fendi told editors at Vogue.com that the range celebrates the relationship between Fendi and the capital city, as well as Lagerfeld’s groundbreaking vision and techniques.

“(His legacy includes) his attitude to break rules and push boundaries,” said Silvia, adding that for Lagerfeld, “Nothing was ever impossible, and that’s what we all tried for.”

To open the presentation, a model walked the runway in a white suit with blouse-like sleeves, a gauzy shirt, and carried a fur-look handbag. A retro theme was immediately apparent in the ensembles that followed, with Silvia opting for a palette of brown, tan, white, and light blue, as well as a mix of textures, such as dresses matched with furry coats. Sam McKnight was in charge of the hair, with each model sporting a round bob wig dyed to match their outfit, with the colours inspired by the pinks, greys, and apricots of Roman marbles.

Highlights of the collection included a dress with striped panels made from black velvet which was modelled by Candice Swanepoel, a black gown with ruffled skirt featuring deep-V neckline, a black dress with geometric panels worn by Liu Wen, as well as a long silky dress with ’60s-style marble print as modelled by Kaia Gerber.

Tessa Thompson, Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet were among the stars to honour late fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld on the red carpet at Sunday night’s (24Feb19) Oscars.

The fashion and showbiz world were left in mourning last week when Lagerfeld passed away at the age of 85 from a secret battle with pancreatic cancer.

A long list of stars paid tribute to the Chanel and Fendi head in the immediate aftermath of his death on Tuesday, with a number of A-listers and their stylists deciding to also honour him at the Oscars.

Creed actress Thomson was decked out in a black silk bustier Chanel dress from the label’s Spring/Summer 19 couture collection.

Explaining the look, which featured gold sequinned tiers down the dress, her stylists Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald wrote on Instagram: “Honouring Karl… last couture collection x #tessathompson #oscars #chanel. Thank you for your legacy #karllagerfeld x #chanel #couture #tessathompson #oscars.”

They also revealed the 35-year-old’s beauty look was inspired by Coco Chanel.

Married couple Momoa and Bonet went for pink Fendi looks, picked out by stylist Jeanne Yang.

“Thank you @fendi @silviaventurinifendi for @prideofgypsies gorgeous tuxedo #karllagerfeld last pieces he may have ever made,” Yang wrote on Instagram.

“@fendi couture thank you @silviaventurinifendi for #lilakoimoon Oscar gown tonight the last one of #karllagerfeld as the creative director.”

She added to The Hollywood Reporter: “Jason is wearing the last thing Karl had his hand on with Silvia Fendi.”

During an interview with ABC before the Oscars, Bonet said: “We have the honour of wearing Karl Lagerfeld, he designed Jason’s tux personally for him.” Gesturing at her own dress, she added: “And this is from his last couture collection from Fendi.”

Momoa completed his look with a pink velvet scrunchie, also designed by Kagerfeld, which he wore around his wrist.

Meanwhile, Chanel collaborator Pharrell Williams wore a Chanel nameplate necklace as he posed for photographs on the red carpet.

Ashley Graham’s request for Jason Momoa to do the Haka displeases Lisa Bonet

Ashley Graham went viral on Sunday night (24Feb19), after an awkward moment when she tried to get Jason Momoa to do the Haka on the Oscars red carpet.

The 31-year-old model was just one of the famous faces fronting coverage of the awards ceremony for U.S. TV network ABC. And as she chatted to stars on the red carpet, Ashley found herself interviewing Aquaman star Jason and his wife Lisa Bonet. As she concluded her chat with the pair, an enthusiastic Ashley asked Jason: “I’ve got to get one Haka move, just one Haka move.” But Lisa was unimpressed by the request, shaking her hand and raising her hand to say that her spouse wouldn’t be granting her request. However, despite his wife’s clear disapproval, Jason was quick to oblige – sticking his tongue out as he recreated one of the moves of the Haka, the traditional, ceremonial dance of New Zealand’s Maori culture.

Lisa still made her discomfort at the situation clear, putting her head down and shaking it as Jason and Ashley stuck their tongues out.

But Ashley appeared to either be unaware of, or ignore, Lisa’s disapproval, laughing as she told the pair: “Yes! Thank you both so much, enjoy the rest of your night.”

Ashley’s request wasn’t entirely random, however, as Hawaiian native Jason had been performing the Haka during the promo rounds for Aquaman. He also performed the dance during his audition for hit show Game of Thrones.

Despite Ashley’s awkward moment, her Oscars night was otherwise successful. The stunning star showed off her hourglass figure on the red carpet in a black Zac Posen gown, which featured a strapless neckline, nipped-in waist and fishtail hem to highlight her curves in all the right places. Sharing a snap of herself in the ensemble on Instagram, Ashley wrote: “Thank you @zacposen for making my Oscar dress dreams come true.”

To complement her ensemble, Ashley wore her hair scraped back into a high ballerina-style bun, which was adorned with tiny velvet bows from Jennifer Behr to add even more glamour.

Javier Bardem: ‘I would have paid to be in Dune!’

Javier Bardem has joked that he would have paid to star in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming sci-fi drama Dune.

The film, slated for a 2020 release, has attracted an impressive list of stars, including Bardem, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Timothee Chalamet, Josh Brolin, Zendaya and Oscar Isaac.

Bardem says he had no hesitation when Villeneuve approached him about playing Stilgar in his new film.

“The most important thing is that I love Denis, since Prisoners. What a luxury! He asked me if I would ever be interested in being part of Dune. Are you kidding? How much do I have to pay?” he said to Cinema Blend. “It’s one of those blessings that you have in this amazing, blessed life that I happen to have: having a job that I love, and make a living with, and also work with people that I truly admire and respect, and I’m getting inspired by it. It’s a lot.”

Villeneuve is rebooting David Lynch’s 1984 cult version of Dune, which was based on Frank Herbert’s book of the same name, with Dave Bautista, Charlotte Rampling and Stellan Skarsgard also on the cast list.

Lynch’s go-to actor Kyle MacLachlan, who starred in the original, recently shared his thoughts on the remake.

“I’m curious to see what happens, you know, he’s (Villeneuve) getting together a great cast obviously, really talented people,” he said to BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM. “It’s a challenging piece of material to try to bring to the screen, so I wish him luck with that, if anyone can do it, he’ll do a great job. He’s a terrific filmmaker.

“The book, I’m kind of a nerd about the book. I read it when I was 15 for the first time. I know the book very well. There are three sections, you can break that into three movies and still have a lot left over.”

Jason Momoa joins Dune remake

Jason Momoa is in talks to join the star-studded cast of the Dune remake.

The Aquaman actor is reportedly in negotiations to play swordmaster Duncan Idaho in Denis Villeneuve’s reboot of David Lynch’s 1984 cult sci-fi epic.

If he cuts a deal, Momoa will join an impressive cast list which currently includes Timothee Chalamet, Stellan Skarsgard, Javier Bardem, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista and Josh Brolin.

Set in the distant future, Dune tells the story of Chalamet’s character Paul Atreides whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis which is the only source of a drug known as “the spice”, a highly valuable commodity. This sparks a fight for control among competing noble families, and after Atreides is betrayed, he leads a rebellion to restore his family’s reign over the planet.

Momoa’s character Duncan belongs to the house of Atreides and serves as the right-hand man to Paul’s father Duke Leto Atreides, played by Oscar Isaac.

Villeneuve, who helmed films such as Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, is directing and producing from a script he co-wrote with A Star is Born’s current Oscar nominee Eric Roth and Prometheus’ Jon Spaihts. Brian Herbert, the son of Dune author Frank Herbert, will serve also a producer with his daughter Kim, while Kevin J. Anderson, who co-wrote the Dune prequel book series with Brian, will act as creative consultant.

The 1984 movie, based on Herbert’s 1965 novel, starred Kyle MacLachlan and was a critical and commercial failure that went on to become a cult hit and spawn TV shows and video games.

Aquaman 2 officially in the works

Warner Bros. has started work on the Aquaman sequel – hiring David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to write the script.

The film, based on the DC comics character and starring Jason Momoa as the title character, with Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, and Nicole Kidman in supporting roles, was directed by James Wan, and became a huge hit for the movie studio.

It took $68.7 million (£60.2 million) in its opening weekend in North America, and sailed past $1 billion (£778 million) worldwide. And according to editors at The Hollywood Reporter Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote the Aquaman script with Will Beall, has been given the go ahead to start work on the sequel.

Johnson-McGoldrick, who worked with director Wan on The Conjuring 2, first began working on the script for the original movie three years ago after reading the Aquaman comic books during filming for the horror.

In an interview with website Moviehole in December he explained writing the DC Comics franchise was a lot of fun.

“It was a little like getting to go play and I felt like the challenges that were faced were harder for Zach Snyder for Justice League — because he was the one who had to figure out who Aquaman was, he told the website. “Zach cast Jason (Momoa) which completely shattered people’s perceptions and we were able to steer Jason back to the classic Aquaman. I don’t think you could’ve shown him in a suit right out of the gate. He had to show Aquaman was cool.”

At present it’s unclear whether Wan will return to direct the sequel, but he is said to be in talks to return as producer.

The news of Johnson-McGoldrick’s hiring comes after Warner Bros. announced that it is developing a spinoff around Aquaman villain The Trench. Wan and Safran are reportedly set to produce the flick, which is being developed as a lower budget version of Aquaman. However, none of the main cast is set to be involved.

Dwayne Johnson wanted Jason Momoa to play his brother in Fast & Furious spin-off

Jason Momoa was forced to sit out the opportunity to play Dwayne Johnson’s brother in the upcoming Fast & Furious spin-off due to scheduling issues.

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star is reprising his role as U.S. Diplomatic Security Agent Luke Hobbs from the hugely popular street racing franchise for the new action movie, in which he reunites onscreen with Jason Statham – as Deckard Shaw.

Johnson, aka The Rock, has been offering up little insights into Hobbs & Shaw’s plot via his Instagram page in recent months, and on Sunday (27Jan19), he shared an image of himself in character, standing alongside his four movie brothers, played by Training Day actor Cliff Curtis, Battleship’s John Tui, wrestler Roman Reigns, and American footballer Josh Mauga.

“A lil’ HOBBS & SHAW exclusive. THE HOBBS BROTHERS,” he captioned the photo.

Johnson went on to explain the background of his onscreen family, revealing his siblings are based in Western Samoa, where they run the Hobbs Customs car garage, a former illegal chop shop-turned-legitimate business.

Explaining how they play a key part in the film, he continued, “In Samoa we have another saying which is ‘Ou te le tau to’atasi ae matou te tau fa’atasi’ which means, When you fight one, you fight us ALL.

“Biggest showdown the Fast & Furious Universe has ever seen is coming this summer. HOBBS & SHAW AUGUST 2ND”.

Fans were quick to share their excitement about the line-up, but one follower questioned why Aquaman star Momoa wasn’t recruited for the project, suggesting he would have been a perfect fit for the film.

Johnson spotted the comment, and admitted the two actors, who both have Polynesian ancestry, had tried to link up for Hobbs & Shaw, but the timing just didn’t work out.

“tried hard to get him in this movie to play my brother, but his schedule was too packed,” Dwayne responded.

However, he gave fans hope for a future collaboration, adding, “Next Hobbs movie for sure”.

Hobbs & Shaw, which also stars Idris Elba and Helen Mirren, will open in theatres this summer (19).

It’s not the only franchise spin-off in the works – original series star Vin Diesel recently confirmed a female-driven instalment is also in development.
