Yara Shahidi brings her own cosmetics to photoshoots as not all make-up artists cater for her skin tone.

The actress, perhaps best known for playing Zoey Johnson on sitcom Black-ish, was recently named as a brand ambassador for Bobbi Brown and has been tapped to appear in the new Confident Beauty campaign alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Chinese star Ni Ni.

While Yara chose to team with Bobbi Brown due to the company’s extensive colour offerings in foundation and concealer, she has found that make-up artists don’t always carry the right shades for her.

“I love that more brands are doing this. There have been times when I got out of the make-up chair and my skin looked grey,” she recalled in an interview with U.S. Harper’s Bazaar. “It’s why I think every single person of colour usually brings their own make-up kit to set.”

In addition to building a reputation for her fun beauty looks, Yara is quickly becoming one to watch on the red carpet.

Of late, she has sported very glamorous ensembles from a diverse array of designers, including Prabal Gurung, Monse, and Balmain, but when it comes to what she wears when at home, the star prefers a much more relaxed vibe.

“By not showing skin, I’m making a statement,” the 19-year-old insisted. “My clothes need to have movement. For me, fashion is all about joy.”

In addition to appearing in Black-ish, Yara is working on her spin-off Grown-ish, and is voicing a character in animated series 3Below: Tales of Arcadia.

Monse has been unveiled as the latest fashion brand to join forces with Disney, with the cute collaboration raising money for pet rescue charities.

In recent months, Loewe, Coach and Rag & Bone have all teamed up with the animation studio, and now it’s the turn of Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia’s brand to be inspired by Disney’s famous cartoon characters.

Calling on Disney’s most famous dogs, Pluto and Goofy, the label has now launched the Monse x Disney pre-fall line, with 100 per cent of gross proceeds, sans tax, donated to six New York-based pet rescue organisations.

“I love Disney, my family goes every year to Disney World, so it’s been a lifelong dream of mine to collaborate with them,” Garcia, who also helms Oscar de la Renta along with Kim, told The Hollywood Reporter. “Minnie (Mouse) and her friends came to our spring-summer 2018 show, and we’d been in touch for a while to discuss the right opportunity to work together.”

For the accompanying campaign, Monse muse Dilone models the 12-piece collection alongside a furry co-star.

Kim said they came up with the idea to work with Disney after they shot their pre-fall 2019 lookbook, which featured 30 rescue dogs alongside the models.

“When we decided to partner with the pet rescue organisations and feature the dogs up for adoption we immediately thought of Disney and the connection to Pluto and Goofy. We especially loved Pluto, as he reminded us of the dogs being featured in the lookbook,” she added.

Monse has tapped Erin Wasson and Nicki Minaj for a new fashion film.

The American brand, launched by designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia in May 2015, is quickly becoming an A-list favourite, with fans including Sarah Jessica Parker, Daisy Ridley and Margot Robbie.

But instead of holding a show during New York Fashion Week in February (18), Kim and Garcia have decided to unveil their fall/winter 2018 collection via a lookbook and video.

Shot at Coney Island by director Fabien Constant, model Erin plays a working woman on her way home from a long day at work, with hip-hop star Nicki providing the voiceover.

“We used the iconic Coney Island for our location, as it presented the perfect balance between nostalgia and fun,” a brand representative said of the concept. “When we shared the concept with Nicki Minaj and asked her to be involved, she felt inspired to write a narrative of a woman, who after a bad day, was able to collect herself and triumph through it… something that must have rung true for the housewives of that era.”

In the video, Erin is seen in a black top with cutouts and deconstructed trench coat as she packs up her locker at the end of the day. The camera then follows her as she makes her way past a gate and into the empty theme park, where she is depicted wearing a series of different outfits, including an oversize white cotton shirt and boyfriend jeans as she holds a bunch of balloons, as well as a navy hoodie and skirt with handkerchief hemline as she jumps on a carousel ride.

Monse’s latest collection also features tartan skirts, leather jackets with shearling collars, and a deconstructed tuxedo number. Speaking about the range, the designers have explained that they wanted to reimagine the ’50s housewife in the contemporary world.

“We were looking at movies like October Sky and Revolutionary Road, and we were kind of laughing at this idea of the 1950s housewife and how different it is from today’s woman,” Fernando told Vogue.

Paris Hilton is planning numerous outfit changes at her upcoming wedding to actor Chris Zylka.

The Leftovers star Chris went down on one knee in December (17), proposing with a $2 million (£1.5 million) rock during a ski trip to Aspen, Colorado.

Vogue reporters caught up with Paris as she attended the Monse New York Fashion Week party with her sister Nicky on Tuesday (13Feb18), and grilled her on who’ll be designing her wedding dress.

“So many designers have sent such incredible sketches,” she said. “There are so many beautiful choices that I’m definitely going to have to have some outfit changes, for sure.”

Zosia Mamet, Olivia Culpo, and Kat Graham were also at the bash to celebrate Monse, which is the label run by Oscar de la Renta designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia.

While in the Big Apple, the Hilton sisters have also been spotted at the Alice + Olivia show, while Paris also stopped by Rachel Zoe’s Los Angeles presentation earlier this month (05Feb18), where she took in Rachel’s new bridal designs.

As well as her busy show schedule and planning her nuptials, the 36-year-old hotel heiress and beauty entrepreneur has been focusing on her new skincare line and perfume, as well as recently releasing single I Need You.

“I’ve always had big dreams and wanted to be an independent woman at a very young age,” she explained of managing her workload. “As a teenager in New York, you grow up very fast and being from a business family, that was always instilled in me. I don’t stop. Success is something that really drives me and I love it.”
