Mad Men co-stars January Jones and Kiernan Shipka have reunited for Rodarte’s new lookbook.

The actresses, who played mother-daughter duo Betty and Sally Draper on the hit TV series, which ran from 2007 until 2015, have been tapped by designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy to appear in the spring/summer 2020 campaign for their fashion label.

Posing in front of a painted landscape background, one portrait shows January and Kiernan standing side-by-side while sporting strapless silk floral gowns and with white pearls dotted throughout their hair, while another sees them posing in dramatic ballgowns.

Taking to Instagram to upload the images, January wrote alongside one of the snaps, “Casual family portraits are so back in.”

And the photographs caught the attention of the pair’s former Mad Men co-stars, with Christina Hendricks, who played Joan Holloway, noting, “When was this?!! So dreeeeeeemy (sic),” and Alison Brie, who portrayed Trudy Campbell, posting, “HOLY. S**T.”

However, January and Kiernan aren’t the only celebrities to appear in Rodarte’s latest imagery, with actresses Kirsten Dunst, Margaret Qualley, Gabrielle Union, Lili Reinhart, Helena Howard, Rowan Blanchard, and Yalitza Aparicio, as well as Haim musicians Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim, rapper Kilo Kish, and singer-songwriter King Princess also featuring.

The photoshoot was helmed by photographer Daria Kobayashi Ritch and styled by Shirley Kurata and Ashley Furnival. Regarding the decision to unveil portraits rather than a runway presentation, Laura told Vogue that they wanted to merge their interests in fashion and art.

“As we’ve become more confident and comfortable in our design voice and really seeing what our personality is within the design world, it’s been really nice to think artistically about creating a world behind each collection,” she shared.

Carolyn Murphy calls out ‘layers’ of abuse in fashion industry

Carolyn Murphy has taken aim at the “layers” of abuse which occur within the fashion industry.

The Florida-born model rose to fame in the late 1990s, when she was selected as one of the ‘Modern Muses’ for the November 1999 cover of U.S. Vogue and fronted the campaign for Calvin Klein’s perfume Contradiction.

Recently, Murphy has become a vocal advocate of the #MeToo movement – having once been the target of inappropriate behaviour by a photographer – and has spoken about the darker side of the industry in a chat with Harper’s Bazaar Australia.

“The whole mental experience of it can be really unhealthy,” she said of modelling, before going on to emphasise that it isn’t just about photographers targeting models. “You have people in the industry who abuse their power from all sides. It’s not just males trying to coerce young women into bed; there are so many other layers of abuse. Even female editors are making girls feel terrible about themselves, there are agents who judge you … The #MeToo movement has opened our eyes to an unfortunate part of the industry that needed to be exposed, but there’s a lot more there.”

Elsewhere in the cover interview for the September 2019 issue, Murphy discussed her longevity in the fashion business and comparisons to her idol, supermodel Christy Turlington.

She also spoke about being a single mother to her 18-year-old daughter Dylan and what it is like to be an independent woman in 2019.

“It’s never a bad thing, but not always a great thing,” the 44-year-old mused.

Carine Roitfeld, Celine Dion, Kate Moss, Alicia Keys and actress Margaret Qualley also appear in the latest issue of the magazine.

Leonardo DiCaprio despised Once Upon a Time in Hollywood moustache

Leonardo DiCaprio kept “spitting out” his fake moustache during the filming of his new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

In Quentin Tarantino’s hotly anticipated feature, the Oscar winner takes on the part of Rick Dalton, a TV star, who, alongside his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), try to revive their careers in the film industry at the time of the Charles Manson murders in Los Angeles in 1969.

Some scenes in the feature required DiCaprio to sport a pretend moustache for a part in a Western-themed show and later on in a Spaghetti Western, but according to make-up artist Sian Grigg, the actor struggled with the look.

“The moustache drove Leo mad, because I had to leave it really long and it always went in his mouth,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was so hot out and the moustache kept going in his mouth, and he’d be spitting it out. He did the same thing in the scene as they filmed ‘off camera’ when he was supposed to be losing it a bit. It made us laugh as he kept spitting it out and the wig was quite long as well.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Grigg explained that she used WM Creations glue, a professional product used to apply facial pieces, to attach the moustache.

And the make-up expert insisted that DiCaprio’s moustache was meant to appear fake, as means of keeping in line with the setting of the flick.

“It was meant to look phony because they didn’t have good materials back then like we do now,” commented Grigg. “We were copying the style of films shot in that period and also covering Leo’s character up to look different and unrecognisable, which in the movie he’s not used to.”

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, also featuring Margot Robbie, Margaret Qualley, Austin Butler, Dakota Fanning, and Al Pacino, is now showing in U.S. cinemas.

Margot Robbie wowed in a white dress at the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premiere in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Some of the film industry’s biggest stars turned out for the premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, which focuses on the story of TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), as they set out to make names for themselves in the film industry at the time of the Charles Manson murders in Los Angeles in 1969.

Australian actress Margot portrays Sharon Tate in the movie, and for the star-studded event, she opted for a flowing white Chanel number with a deep-V neckline, flowing sleeves and floor-sweeping skirt.

Referencing the time period of the film, the 29-year-old’s hairstylist Bryce Scarlett styled her blonde locks into soft curls, while her make-up artist Pati Dubroff opted for a “hot summer ’70s vibe,” and used Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Make-up Base and the Duo Bronze et Lumiere Clair palette to achieve her bronzed complexion.

Margot accessorised her ensemble with gold chandelier earring and a gold purse.

Meanwhile, Leonardo and Brad both looked handsome in sharp suits, and filmmaker Quentin chose a black suit with a velvet blazer.

Rumer Willis, who plays Joanna Pettet, rocked a beautiful white Grecian gown from Ong-Oaj Pairam and high heels from Christian Louboutin, and was supported by her sisters Scout and Tallulah.

Margaret Qualley, who takes on the part of Pussycat in the film, made it a family affair too, stopping to pose in her sheer Prada dress alongside her father Paul Qualley and sister Rainey.

Rising star Austin Butler, who plays Charles “Tex” Watson, was joined by his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, who looked stunning in a black Armani gown, with other castmembers to turn out for the bash included Timothy Olyphant, Rebecca Gayheart, Bruce Dern, and Zoe Bell.

Additionally, celebrities such as Adriana Lima, Rob Lowe, Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg, Pierce Brosnan, Britney Spears, Robin Thicke, John Stamos, Chris Hemsworth, and Sofia Vergara got dressed to the nines for the night as well.

Damon Herriman has been cast as Charles Manson in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The upcoming crime mystery is set to tell the story of a TV actor and his longtime stunt double as they try to find success in the Los Angeles film industry in 1969, with the actor happening to live next door to Sharon Tate, who is later tragically murdered by the followers of cult leader Manson.

While the shoot is already underway, editors at The Wrap have now confirmed that Herriman is to play Manson in the film, joining already established castmembers such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Al Pacino.

The Australian actor is best known for his role as Dewey Crowe in FX’s Justified, and has also had minor roles in Breaking Bad and Top of the Lake: China Girl, as well as parts in The Lone Ranger and The Water Diviner.

Empire star Rumer Willis has also been cast as British actress Joanna Pettet, a friend of Tate who had lunch at her house just hours before her murder, while Dreama Walker will portray actress and singer Connie Stevens.

Costa Ronin, Victoria Pedretti, Margaret Qualley and Madisen Beaty have landed parts too.

In addition to directing, Tarantino has written the screenplay and will produce the feature in collaboration with Gravity’s David Heyman and Shannon McIntosh, who previously worked with the 55-year-old on his movies Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.

The film was originally scheduled for release on 9 August 2019 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the murders, but is now expected to debut on 26 July.

Lena Dunham was also recently added to the ensemble cast, as well as Kill Bill star Uma Thurman’s daughter, Maya Hawke, and Inglourious Basterds actor Eli Roth’s estranged wife, Lorenza Izzo.

Humberto Leon has swapped fashion for film with new feature The Everything.

The co-creative director of Kenzo, who helms the label with Carol Lim, has written and produced the new movie, which editors at WWD describe as a “lighthearted drama about a family of teenagers with unusual powers that bring them together”.

Resident Evil actress Milla Jovovich stars as the matriarch, with Sasha Frolova and X-Men: Apocalypse stars Alexandra Shipp and Kodi Smit-McPhee featuring as a group of young characters.

Regina Hall, Jay Ellis, Zsela Thompson and Leo Reilly also make up the cast, and filmmaker Spike Jonze has a cameo.

Kenzo’s fall 18 collection features throughout the 27-minute film, and the luxury label’s La Collection Memento No. 3 is also on display.

Leon and Lim, who are also behind U.S. retailer Opening Ceremony, frequently collaborate with writers and directors when it comes to Kenzo campaigns.

They previously teamed with Oscar winner Jonze on My Mutant Brain, an advert for the Kenzo World perfume, which starred The Leftovers’ Margaret Qualley.

“We all have known each other for such a long time. It’s one of our favourite things when we get to work with people we know and admire so well,” the designers previously told Buro24/7 of working with Jonze and Kenzo World’s bottle designer, Patrick Li. “Both of them are geniuses in their respective fields and we were lucky that they were free to work on this project with us.”

A Kenzo representative has spoken out after Taylor Swift was accused of copying one of their adverts in her new music video.

The popstar debuted clips from her new track Delicate at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night (11Mar18), which showed her wildly dancing at a swanky hotel.

However, many fashion fans have noted the similarities between Taylor’s video and that of a previous Kenzo advert directed by Spike Jonze in 2016, and the brand, helmed by designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, has since addressed the controversial claims.

“Listen, Tay, I feel you. It’s hard to stay fresh. Call us, we can help,” a rep from the French fashion house cheekily posted online.

Jonze’s campaign for fragrance KENZO World starred actress Margaret Qualley and depicted The Leftovers star ditching a fancy party before breaking out into an erratic, solo dance routine.

In an article posted on Monday, editors at fashion blog The Cut pointed out the many overlaps between the luxury label’s advert and Taylor’s musical offering.

“While music videos are often a pastiche of influences, the similarities are hard to ignore: The gowns are similar, as is the premise and the setting and the frenetic facial contortions,” they wrote. “Of course, there are also some major differences, primarily when it comes to the quality of dancing. Margaret Qualley is a classically trained ballerina, while Swift is mainly known for her weird arm-dancing at awards shows and something called the ‘dolphin body roll.'”

Many Twitter users also accused Taylor of allegedly ripping off the iconic ad, however, a source close to the Shake It Off hitmaker rubbished these claims in a statement to Page Six, and insisted that her video has a “beginning, a middle and an end”.
