Storm Reid made her runway debut during Miu Miu’s Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday.

The Euphoria actress opened the Italian fashion house’s fall/winter 2020 presentation at the Palais d’Iena wearing a bronze crushed satin dress and a dark grey tweed overcoat, with her braids shaped into a ’40s updo.

The 16-year-old later took to Instagram to show pictures and video of her walking the runway and expressed her excitement in the caption.

“Wow. Wow. Wow. Today I walked in my first fashion show. Not only did I walk, but I opened the show. In Paris. For @MIUMIU. Insane right?!?” she gushed. “Thank you to the whole @miumiu team and (stylist) @kegrand for not only allowing but trusting me to do this. I always felt like I could walk in a show, and (creative director) @jasonbolden told me to be patient, and I’m so glad I was. We did it J! This is something that will be etched in my mind and heart forever. XO.”

Storm received praise from celebrities in the comments section, with her A Wrinkle in Time co-star Mindy Kaling writing, “Wow wow wow!! You are (fire) Storm!!” and Janelle Monae posting, “Gooooo stormie !!!!!” with a fire emoji.

The star was joined by the likes of models Adut Akech, Gigi Hadid, and Bella Hadid on the runway, while British singer Rita Ora made a surprise catwalk appearance wearing a floor-length military-inspired navy coat.

Rita shared images from her runway moment on Instagram too, and posted, “So your girl gave you a walk today Hunay on this fine Tuesday! Such an honour to walk for you #MucciaPrada @MiuMiu So amazing to work with such an amazing team thank you (sic).”

The 29-year-old is no stranger to strutting her stuff on the catwalk – she has previously appeared in shows for DKNY and Moschino.

Rita Ora has been tapped to front Thomas Sabo’s whimsical new campaign.

The Let You Love Me hitmaker has signed a two-year deal with the German jewellery firm, with the gig seeing her following in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Poppy Delevingne, and Georgia May Jagger.

Now, Rita is starring in the brand’s spring/summer 2020 marketing imagery, titled Magic Garden, with one snap showing her posing in a sheer lilac top while surrounded by wildflowers, and another depicting her modelling a bracelet with her name on it and a dragonfly necklace.

“Spring awakening creates the desire for something new,” she commented. “Have the courage to be yourself and make your look your message. A style is perfect when it perfectly matches your look!”

The Magic Garden line includes jewellery and watches, including hero pieces such as the hummingbird, kaleidoscope, and dragonfly designs. There are also butterfly pendants, a pair of earrings shaped like rainbows, and charms featuring feather motifs.

The Thomas Sabo x Rita Ora Collection is now available.

Rita, 29, was named as the new global brand ambassador for the company last July and made her debut in the autumn/winter 2019 campaign.

“Rita Ora’s strength, passion, creativity and self-confident styling underline the long-term reorientation of global brand communication and the vision of the multi-faceted Thomas Sabo collections to make jewellery dreams come true for everyone,” a brand rep said in a statement at the time.

Michael Caine is returning to the world of Charles Dickens for a modern-day take on Oliver Twist.

The Oscar winner, who portrayed miser Ebenezer Scrooge in The Muppet Christmas Carol, will play master thief Fagin opposite Game of Thrones star Lena Headey, singer Rita Ora, and comedian and author David Walliams in the new movie Twist.

The film, which will be set in modern-day London, will also feature Jude Law’s son Rafferty in the title role.

Martin Owen will direct from a script he has co-written.

Announcing his casting, Caine commented, “Fagin is such an infamous character, it’s going to be great fun playing him. I’m really looking forward to working with Lena, Raff and the rest of the cast in London when we start shooting.”

While Headey added that she would be taking on the role of Sikes in the project.

“Flipping roles without apology or character softening is a brilliant way to breathe new life into established materials and bring it to new audiences,” she shared.

Production on the movie will kick off later this year. And accordingly, Law can’t wait to get started on his first major role.

“I’m excited to play such a well-loved literary character, and I’m looking forward to working with Martin Owen to bring to life his new take on the character in modern-day London,” the 23-year-old added.

Oliver Twist, Dickens’s second novel, was first published as a serial from 1837 to 1839. The story has been the subject of numerous adaptations over the years, including the musical play Oliver! and the multiple Academy Award-winning 1968 film.

Richard Madden won the Most Stylish Man gong at the 2019 British GQ Men of the Year Awards on Tuesday night.

The Bodyguard star was handed the award by singer Rita Ora at the magazine’s annual bash held at the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall in London.

Madden looked dapper in a midnight blue bespoke suit designed by Hugo Boss, which featured a velvet jacket and classic black tuxedo trousers.

During his acceptance speech, the 33-year-old also touched upon his new role in Marvel superhero movie, The Eternals, and joked that his friends don’t think he deserves the title of Most Stylish Man.

“My friends all find it most amusing that I’ve won this award that they don’t really think I deserve. Actors spend most of the time wearing other people’s clothes, so I’d like to thank Hugo Boss for this,” Madden quipped. “For the next few months, I will be wearing mostly a tight blue cosmic superhero costume, so not much chance of me winning again next year.”

Madden’s Rocket Man co-star Taron Egerton won the award for Best Actor, while Andrew Scott was named Standout Performance of 2019 for his role as The Priest in Fleabag.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who created and starred in the BBC show, bestowed him with the award, and jokingly praised Scott’s performance as “a combustion of charisma, grace, nuance, and complexity… culminating in a 162 per cent rise in religious pornography watched in the U.K.”

Nicole Kidman won Best Actress, 16-year-old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg was given the Game Changer accolade, and pop icon Kylie Minogue was handed the Icon Award by music legend Tom Jones.

Rita Ora is the new global brand ambassador for Thomas Sabo.

The Let You Love Me hitmaker has signed a two-year deal with the German firm, with the gig seeing her following in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Poppy Delevingne and Georgia May Jagger.

Ora will front the brand from July onwards and will appear in Sabo’s autumn/winter 2019 campaign.

“Rita Ora’s strength, passion, creativity and self-confident styling underline the long-term reorientation of global brand communication and the vision of the multi-faceted Thomas Sabo collections to make jewellery dreams come true for everyone,” a brand rep said in a statement.

In addition, Ora will also front marketing imagery for Sabo’s watch line.

The 28-year-old recently shared a sweet thank you note on Instagram to the jeweller, as she posed wearing new pieces.

“Thank you so much @thomassabo for my custom jewellery last night,” she captioned the snap, showing her backstage at one of her Phoenix World Tour shows in the U.K.

Ora has been flexing her design skills lately, having been tapped to co-design a footwear collection for shoe retailer Deichmann and customise fashion label Escada’s classic Heart bag.

And earlier this year, she unveiled a luxe five-piece range with Giuseppe Zanotti, with prices ranging from $895 to $1,995 (£700 – £1,575).

Talking about the collaboration, the celebrity shoe designer explained how he was inspired by the singer’s personality.

“I wanted to create a series of styles that represents the three different facets of Rita: glamour, effortlessness and cool,” he explained.

Sabo is based in southern Germany and operates around 300 stores worldwide.

Stars of the fashion world have gushed over Marc Jacobs’ glamorous New York City wedding.

The designer wed his fiance Charly Defrancesco, who he affectionately calls Char, in an intimate ceremony on Saturday (06Apr19), with the nuptials followed by a huge reception held at a midtown restaurant, Grill Room.

A number of celebrities were in attendance at the party, including Naomi Campbell, who took to Instagram following the bash to upload a snap of Marc and Charly’s five-tier wedding cake.

“#CONGRATULATIONS @marcjacobs@chardefrancesco #marcandcharsweddingBEST WEDDING EVER !! ETERNAL HAPPINESS I LOVE YOU BOTH MY CHOSEN FAMILY #marcandcharswedding,” the British supermodel, who wore a glittering black Balmain outfit, captioned the photo.

While singer Rita Ora uploaded Naomi’s photo to her Instagram page and explained that she was having such a good time at the bash that she forgot to take any pictures.

I definitely felt the love (heart emoji) and thank you @naomi hope you don’t mind I just love this photo you took!! I was so enjoying the night I didn’t take any photos!! Love you guys!

Rita Ora is the latest A-lister to team up with German footwear brand Deichmann.

Following, quite literally, in the footsteps of Ellie Goulding, Demi Lovato and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Rita will be launching a new capsule collection for autumn/winter 2019.

Sharing the news with her 14.6 million Instagram followers, the pop singer excitedly revealed: “So happy to announce I will be the face of the new @deichmann_schuhe #ritaoraxdeichmann OUT in August!”

In the accompanying image, Rita can be seen posing in front of a board full of shoe ideas and swatches of fabric.

The official Deichmann account shared the same photo, with a representative writing that brand bosses are “super happy” with the signing.

Rita is becoming something of a shoe expert, after recently working with Giuseppe Zanotti on a sexy line of heels. The six-piece collection was unveiled in February, with the designs featuring gold chain detailing and available in black, red and perspex styles.

And in a chat with Elle magazine, the 28-year-old admitted that she hopes to add to her Giuseppe Zanotti offerings with some sporty designs.

“Eventually, I would love to do a pair of sneakers with (Zanotti),” she said.

The Italian shoe designer, who has previously described his new collaborator as “so extra and amazing,” added that he was completely open to the idea.

“When you work with somebody, you write a chapter. This was chapter one. We finished a chapter, but not the book,” he smiled.

Rita Ora has launched her shoe collection with Giuseppe Zanotti with a glitzy celebration at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills on Thursday (24Jan19).

It was announced earlier this month that the pair would be teaming up, with Rita bringing her design skills, which she previously honed with collections for Adidas, on a five-piece range.

Modelling the Bonnie design, a towering black sandal featuring perspex straps and a gold chain effect heel, Rita teamed her shoe with an animal print Dundas dress at the launch.

All five of the shoes feature the gold chain heel. The rest of the collection is made up of two slouchy heeled boots in either black and red, and two patent leather sandals, again in red or black.

Prices range from $895 (£684) to $1995 (£1525)

Talking about the collaboration, shoe designer to the stars Giuseppe explained how he was inspired by Body on Me singer Rita’s personality when it came to creating the collection.

“I wanted to create a series of styles that represents the three different facets of Rita: glamour, effortlessness and cool,” he told lofficielusa.com. “Music has always been at the centre of my design ethos and has always been my most powerful muse. The music world is an endless source of inspiration and Rita, with her extraordinary mix of sensuality and strength, proved to be a very powerful muse too.

“So we created knock-out stiletto sandals, to-the-knee, peep-toe boots as well as modern slip-on flats, in luxurious materials, like polished leather, textured suede, and rich silk-satin. But the defining element of the collection is the Cuban Link chain, which is my favourite type of jewellery. The design is immediate, graphic and strong and it resonated perfectly with Rita’s personality and style.”
