The Ring Hollywood Insiders Are Wearing To Support Women’s Rights


2018's Golden Globes Award will surely go down in history as the most political yet. From Oprah's iconic speech and the suggested all-black dress code to Sterling K. Brown's historical win and actresses showing up with activists as dates, the Golden Globes was indeed a political battle ground. One brand on the front line? Shiffon, a fine jewelry company founded by Shilpa Yarlagadda. With the motto “wear the change you want to see,” the company donates 50% of the sales of their Duet pinky ring to seed grants for start-ups around the world. The design serves as a daily reminder of the pinky pledge taken to support women. We caught up with founder Yarlagadda to learn more about the brand.

Why Fashion Needs To Join The Golden Globes #Metoo Protest

The powerful Hollywood players behind Time's Up appear to be giving designers an ultimatum: condemn sexual harassment, or risk being boycotted.

In December, it was rumored that women were planning to wear black to the 2018 Golden Globes as a silent protest against Hollywood’s sexual harassment epidemic. The news drew skepticism from many, and outrage from Rose McGowan, who has been vocally protesting Hollywood misogyny since long before #MeToo started trending. Except that the all-black protest was never supposed to be silent. On New Year’s Day, over 300 women in Hollywood unveiled a comprehensive campaign called Time’s Up, which had been in the works for months. The initiative was announced in a full page ad in the New York Times (and Spanish-language paper La...

Hollywood Insiders On The Emotional Side Of Diamonds


It’s true that diamond’s are a girl’s best friend, especially on the red carpet. There’s no other stone so synonymous with the glamour of Old Hollywood, nor one that has greater sentimental value—diamonds are always there to celebrate all of life’s biggest moments. Beyond engagement rings, owning diamond jewelry is a rite of passage— many times these precious, one-of-a-kind pieces are passed down from generation to generation, becoming beloved heirlooms.

In honor of the most timeless of bijoux, we’ve asked industry insiders to share their own diamond stories. Below, some of the experts responsible for keeping stars fresh-faced, well-appointed, and impeccably coiffed tell us what their most precious piece means to them.

Gal Gadot Was Almost Cast In an Iconic Charlize Theron Role

Gal Gadot Was Almost Cast In an Iconic Charlize Theron Role
Actresses Gal Gadot and Charlize Theron have a lot in common. They're both beauties (Theron, a former model; Gadot, a former beauty queen) who can hold their own with the tough boys on screen. They both owe a lot to director Patty Jenkins (who was behind both Gadot's Wonder Woman and Theron's Monster). They both, incidentally, were on the cover of W this year. So maybe it shouldn't be a surprise that sometimes Hollywood has considered them both for the same roles. In fact, as Gadot recently revealed, she was the second choice for a role that ended up going to Theron instead. While appearing on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, Gadot recounted how close she came to landing various roles before finally landing her breakthrough, star-making gig in Wonder Woman. "I had so...

Chrissy Metz: Hollywood’s New Pin-up Girl

"I used to be Kate," admits Chrissy Metz, referring to her wounded but determined character on the break-out NBC family drama, This Is Us. There's a hint of relief in her voice when she adds, "but now, I'm so far removed from that." Sitting in a makeup chair at her photo shoot, Metz is early-morning vamping for her pin-up-inspired portraits. Every time the hairstylist brings over a hairpiece—a set of Betty Page bangs, a swirl of jet-black pin curls—Metz's cat-green eyes fire up; the middle child who loved to entertain her hard-working mom comes out to play. She giggles, pouting her lips duck-style for full goofball glamour. "God, I would've died for these bangs in high school," she says...

Hollywood Legend Zsa Zsa Gabor Dies at 99

Zsa Zsa Gabor, the jet-setting Hungarian actress and socialite who helped invent a new kind of fame out of multiple marriages, conspicuous wealth and jaded wisdom about the glamorous life, has died. She was 99. The middle and most famous of the sisters Gabor passed away Sunday of a heart attack at her Bel-Air home, her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, said. TMZ first reported the news of her death on Sunday night. Gabor had been hospitalized repeatedly since she broke her right hip in July 2010 after a fall at her home. She already had to use a wheelchair after being partly paralyzed in a 2002 car accident and suffering a stroke in 2005. Most of her right leg was amputated...

The Hollywood Reporter Will no Longer Rank Women

Getty Ooh, this is interesting. ​The Hollywood Reporter ​has announced that after 23 years, the magazine will stop publishing their 'Women in Entertainment Power 100' list - an annual ranking of the most influential women in Hollywood.  The longstanding tradition won't be running again, for a pretty powerful reason: uniting women, rather than positioning them against each other. The news was announced in an editor's letter published to ​THR​'s site today, with editor Janice Min expressing her frustrations at an industry that seems "persistently stuck".  "​Twenty-three years ago, in 1992, The Hollywood Reporter created its Women in Entertainment Power 100 list, an annual index of the most powerful women in Hollywood," writes Janice. "​Fast-forward to today. I'm a female editor covering an industry that,...

Bridget Jones’s Baby: Patrick Dempsey Joins The Cast Alongside Rene Zellweger And Colin Firth

Hold on to your big knickers Bridget Jones fans, there’s news from Hollywood about Bridget Jones’s Baby, the third – and probably final – film in the series. It’s been almost a year since Renee Zellweger teased us with the ‘it would be fun’ comment about reprising her role, and even Colin Firth has grown impatient. Talk about the film as a serious goer first began in 2012, but was reportedly stalled by script issues and Hugh Grant’s indecision over whether to get involved. By 2013, with still no word on when filming would begin, Firth said in an interview: “The way it’s going, you might be seeing Bridget Jones’s granddaughter’s story being told by the time we get there,” and sometime last...
