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.

Cardi B heads to nail salon for surreal new Reebok ad

Cardi B has showed off her comedic side in her debut ad for Reebok.

The I Like It rapper was named as a brand ambassador for the sportswear giant last November, and on Tuesday, she dropped her first commercial – called Nails – in which she promotes the updated Club C Classic shoes.

During the short film, Cardi is seen sitting in a salon getting her hair done, as she discusses blocking a man on her phone who had failed to text her two days after they met.

She then notices her pristine white Reebok Classic Club Cs are untied, and rather than mess up her hair and lean over to tie up her shoelaces, she lets her freshly manicured nails do the work.

With her hands resting on her legs, Cardi’s nails grow to the floor, tie her shoes for her and then retract.

At the end of the video, the 26-year-old turns to a fellow customer and simply states: “Nailed it… So anyway, I think I’m going to block him.”

Cardi uploaded the video to her Instagram page too, with Snoop Dogg among the thousands of fans who commented on her post, simply writing: “U 2 Much,” alongside three of fire emojis.

Inga Stenta, senior director of global marketing at Reebok, said she wanted to “take a different path” while working with Cardi on the Club C Classic advert.

“Working with Cardi on Nails, we aimed to create a moment that is authentic to Cardi while breaking convention and doing something more engaging than a typical celebrity cameo. We took a different path, putting her in an everyday-type situation that shifts in an unexpected manner, spotlighting the iconic Reebok Club C in a completely unique way,” she commented.

Nipsey Hussle was first choice to portray Snoop Dogg in Tupac Shakur biopic

Nipsey Hussle turned down the opportunity to portray Snoop Dogg in Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me because he didn’t want to put his community work on hold.

In a new interview, director Benny Boom has revealed that the rapper had been his first choice to join the cast of his 2017 movie, which featured actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Shakur.

“Nipsey was supposed to play Snoop…,” Boom told Too Fab. “We wanted him to play Snoop in All Eyez On Me. We didn’t have any other person that we wanted to play him.”

However, taking on the gig would have meant Hussle spending several weeks on location in Atlanta, Georgia, instead of staying close to his Los Angeles home, where he was known for his philanthropy and local activism, so he declined the role.

“It’s crazy because I didn’t realise, as much as I knew Nipsey – I didn’t realise how much he was driving things in his community,” Boom explained. “And to take him out of L.A. for that amount of time that we needed to come to Atlanta where we shot, would’ve just threw him off his square (schedule) a little bit. Just the timing didn’t work out (sic).”

The part ended up going to actor Jarrett Ellis, but Hussle had been due to work with Shipp Jr. on another project, sports drama series All American.

Boom claimed he had introduced Hussle to producers on the show, who signed him up to portray a gang leader in Crenshaw, Los Angeles for the project’s upcoming second season.

Yet, Hussle didn’t get the opportunity to film his appearance prior to his murder on 31 March, when he was tragically gunned down outside his California clothing store.

Snoop Dogg has teamed with British footwear brand Duke + Dexter to create his own collection.

The Drop It Like It’s Hot rapper has created a limited-edition line comprised of 18 Duke + Dexter styles, including the Duke slipper-style loafers, Reed mules and Dexter slides. Each pair is inspired by the “pool to party” lifestyle and features Snoop Dogg motifs, such as the marijuana leaf, dice and his face.

“I wanted to try to bring something new and fresh to the collaboration and products. Snoop is such a legend and the weight of doing this well was always in mind,” Lee Rogers, head of product at Duke + Dexter, said in a statement.

”I really wanted to find a quote/lyric that could help encapsulate what Duke + Dexter are as a brand and what Snoop represents. The lyric we decided to use was, ‘La di da di, we likes to party we don’t cause no trouble, we don’t bother nobody…'” he added, referring to Snoop’s ’90s song Lodi Dodi, his cover of Doug E. Fresh’s La Di Da Di.

Only 1,000 pairs of each style have been made, with the shoes priced between $202 and $304 (£160 – £240).

The Snoop Dogg collection, which also includes poker chips, playing cards and a tote bag, launched earlier this week. Items are available to purchase from the Duke + Dexter website, the brand’s boutique in London’s Covent Garden, and at the Selfridges department store.

Duke + Dexter, which relaunched in March, boasts celebrity clients like Eddie Redmayne, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Reynolds. All shoes are designed in London and handmade in a family-run workshop in Sheffield, England.

Lupita Nyong’o channels Emma Thompson when she’s on the red carpet.

English actress Emma famously photobombed the Kenyan-Mexican star at the 2014 SAG Awards, the year Lupita went home with the Best Supporting Actress gong for 12 Years a Slave.

While Lupita posed regally for photographers in a teal Gucci gown, Emma jumped in behind her making funny faces. Talking to PorterEdit about her fellow actress, Lupita admits she now takes a leaf out of Emma’s book when it comes to glitzy events.

“Emma Thompson, she’s the realest woman. Observing her on the red carpet and how free and irreverent she was,” Lupita recalled of their 2014 encounter. “She was like, ‘Don’t sweat it. We get to wear pretty dresses and prance around this red carpet, so enjoy it.’ That made it less pressure. I’m like, ‘Okay, I need to channel my Emma Thompson. This is a big moment in my life, but also it’s just a moment.’”

Lupita also bagged the Best Supporting Actress Oscar and BAFTA that year.

Since then, Lupita has become a red carpet regular thanks to roles in box office smashes like Black Panther, The Jungle Book and the Star Wars franchise.

Working with stylist Micaela Erlanger for her premiere and awards looks, Lupita has become known for her fearless fashion choices, and she’s now also experimenting with bold beauty looks too.

At the premiere of her new film with Jordan Peele, Us, at the South by Southwest Film Festival, she showed off eye make-up inspired by a look seen on Annie Lennox in the ‘80s, and a hairstyle based on one Snoop Dogg wore in the ‘90s.

Snoop Dogg has chosen 50 of his favourite recipes for his first ever cookbook.

The Gin & Juice star, who is also co-host of cooking show Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party with Martha Stewart, is showing off his culinary skills in a new book, titled From Cook to Crook.

“You know it’s blazin’ up in my kitchen,” a press release from Snoop reads. “I’m takin’ the cookbook game higher with a dipped and whipped collection of my favorite recipes, ya dig?”

Snoop’s recipes include his own baked macaroni and cheese, baby back ribs and chicken and waffles. And to give non-cooks the chance to shine at parties, the 46-year-old Grammy nominee and father-of-four serves up the dishes by meal and occasion, offering up his own personal entertainment tips throughout.

Snoop, who has been public about his love of marijuana for decades, did not include any cannabis-infused dishes in From Crook to Cook, but he did share some of the items he eats when he gets the munchies, as well as his own gin and juice cocktail recipe.

Snoop’s new cookbook announcement comes just weeks before his TV sidekick, Martha Stewart, hosts her Martha Stewart Wine & Food Experience to New York event in the Big Apple in partnership with USA TODAY Network to promote her own new recipe book, Pressure Cooker.

She will lead cooking demonstrations with recipes from the new title alongside other celebrity chefs at the big cookout, which takes place on 8 September (18) at the The LeFrak Center at Lakeside in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

Snoop’s cookbook is now available for pre-order ahead of its release on 23 October (18).

Rapper Snoop Dogg is encouraging people of every gender persuasion to sport his apparel line.

The Doggystyle legend offers all types of clothes he has designed for sale online and he cringes at the idea his clothing was created just for men.

“No way,” he responds to Elle when asked if the apparel is “just for dudes”.

“It’s for females, it’s for males, and it’s for the in-between, because that’s about to happen in a bigger way,” he says of the transgender community. “And however you want to wear it, regardless of gender, I think that’s great as long as you do it with love.”

Snoop is open to the idea of collaborating with a big brand like Louis Vuitton, Supreme or Gucci in the future, but he is happy to be designing his own clothes for the time being.

“You know, if the offer is right, I would absolutely do it (collaborate with a high-end label), but in the meantime and the between time, I’m going to keep making my own clothing line,” he smiles. “It’s (Snoop’s clothes) on The Snoopermarket.com, and it’s really because sometimes, I just can’t find what’s in my head.

“I like making things I want to wear, and I like trying to promote my own business and my own vision. If any of those big fashion brands get the paper together, I’d love to speak with them, but until then, I’m also really happy making things that people like, and letting them buy it themselves.”

Tom Ford closes men’s show with socks and statement underwear

Tom Ford dressed his models in underwear and woolen socks to bring his fall 2018 men’s show to an end.

The designer debuted his latest collection during New York Fashion Week: Men’s on Tuesday night (06Feb18) and opted to take a less is more approach when it came to his grand finale on the runway.

His selection of models were clothed in statement underwear showcasing a range of materials and patterns, such as metallics and animal prints, which were paired with simple wool socks in black and various shades of nude.

Though the 56-year-old fashion mogul decided to ditch shoes as his show concluded, Ford started the show with an assembly of suede hybrid sneaker-loafers, finished with tassels and thick rubber soles, while other garments to grace the catwalk included metallic blazers, puffer jackets and plenty of eyewear.

Guests, including The Daily Show host Trevor Noah and Snoop Dogg’s model son Cordell Broadus, watched the style spectacle from the front row.

Before the show kicked off, Ford spoke to reporters about the lack of diversity when it comes to the body types of today’s fashion models, and defended his decision to consistently use thin fashion stars.

“There is a practical reason that most models are the same size, and that’s called a sample collection,” he told WWD. “You make a sample collection (according to) a standardised selection of measurements for models.

“I can’t, eight hours before the show when I’m in a fitting and I decide to use a certain girl, custom make an outfit for her. (My clothes) are all made in the same size.”
