The Originals’ Claire Holt Marries Andrew Joblon: See Her Dress

The Originals star Claire Holt married fiancé Andrew Joblon on Saturday, August 18.

The Australian actress, 30, posted a photo of the newlyweds on Instagram on Sunday, August 19, confirming the happy news. The couple posed under an arch covered with pink roses in the romantic pic. The bride wore a strapless lace gown and held a gorgeous bouquet, while the groom wore a gray suit and white sneakers. The couple’s dog, Teddy, is also in the pic.

A post shared by Claire Holt (@claireholt) on

Photographer Kelley Raye, who took the photo, also shared it on Instagram on Sunday, writing, “Yesterday with @claireholt and @ajoblon was amazing. Also can we all just take in Teddy’s ‘tuxedo’ for a minute?”

Joblon also shared a shot that showed him kissing his bride.

The Vampire Diaries alum announced her engagement to the real estate executive in December 2017, just eight months after splitting from her first husband, TV producer Matthew Kaplan. Holt and Kaplan tied the knot in April 2016 but he filed for divorce one day before their first wedding anniversary.

Holt revealed in March this year that she had suffered a miscarriage, writing in an emotional Instagram post, “I’ve never felt more broken in my life.”

She said she was sharing her story in the hope of letting other women know they aren’t alone.

“I could not have survived this without the unconditional love of my partner,” Holt added. “Despite his pain, he was my rock and my safety net. I will never know how to thank him.”

She and Joblon adopted Teddy, a rescue puppy, later that same month.

From talks on starting a business from scratch and Facebook Lives on creating a social media following, to a workshop in coping with stress and a lecture on determining what’s not your job, every session served up practical advice and some very inspirational quotes.

Here are some of the best takeaways from the event…

Be fearless:

‘If we eliminated fear, we would fly. The universe only wants good things for us – you just have to be fearless.’ Alesha Dixon 

‘Someone once described me as courageous and it was the biggest compliment I’ve ever been given. You don’t have to be born with courage. If you want it, you can have it.’ Victoria Pendleton

‘The biggest prison we live in is the fear of what other people think – if we change that mindset, we can be whatever we want to be.’ Aimee Bateman

‘Women are socialised to be perfect. We should be socialised to be brave.’ Stephanie Phair

Be open to mistakes:

‘We need to redefine the word “mistake” – mistakes are important and necessary, and that’s true in all walks of life – it’s just that you’ll only find that out in hindsight.’ Pavan Ahluwalia

‘I nearly went bankrupt. I remember crying one night because I couldn’t afford to pay £16k in wages to my staff the next day. I had to go and tell them that I couldn’t pay them, and it was humiliating. But it was a huge learning curve and it changed my entire business, because I had to make sure it would never happen again.’ Rachel Flanagan

Be authentic:

‘You can’t just copy someone else as you’ll only ever go as far as that person. You have to be you to reach your own potential.’ Sebina Hussain

‘I’ve been told my whole life I need to act more like a boy, which is a bit boring, isn’t it? I’m going to be that feminine person, I’m going to do it my way and it’s going to work.’ Victoria Pendleton

‘Be emotional. Be exactly who you are, and if people don’t like it, they’re not your tribe. What three words do you want people to use to describe you? That’s your brand.’ Aimee Bateman

Be open to help:

‘Don’t be a busy fool. I know what I’m worth in my business and every time I put something in my diary, I think “Is that a job a director should be doing?”‘ Rachel Flanagan

‘Be inquisitive. If you’re stuck on a hurdle, ask and people will show you the way. And don’t spend your time doing something someone else can do. You need to be the person who’s improving the top line and bottom line therefore – stick to what you’re good at.’ Anna Gibson

‘Don’t dim your light, shine. It’s ok to be different, we can work together to make collective change. Even superheroes can’t do it on their own.’ Aimee Bateman

Be persistent:

‘When you’re a young girl and you have dreams of your future, the path seems clear, but then reality kicks in. I wanted to be a doctor, and I was told that people like me couldn’t do it. I didn’t listen. When one door closes, you find a window with a tiny crack open and you find every bit of strength inside you to shatter that crack and jump through.’ Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP

‘Let’s not think change happens to us. Let’s take the reigns and be the change makers. That will ensure we are not negatively affected by change – we will be driving the change.’ Brita Fernandez Schmidt

‘You have to communicate why you do what you do. There’s always going to be someone who dresses better than you or uses longer words, but the way you can win is giving people something to connect to.’ Aimee Bateman

Be generous:

‘It’s not about pulling the ladder up behind you, it’s about trying to let down lots of ladders to give other women a leg up too.’ Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP

‘It is such a privilege to be able to help others – we must use that privilege.’ Brita Fernandez Schmidt

‘People will fall in love with you if you give them something to fall in love with.’ Aimee Bateman

Claire Danes and Kerry Washington wow on the 72nd Tony Awards red carpet in New York

CLAIRE Danes and Kerry Washington stole the show at the 72nd Tony Awards red carpet in New York.

The glamorous duo led the star-studded arrivals at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

British star Claire chose an eye-catching animal print dress with ruffled detailing on the neckline, sleeves and hem.

The mum-to-be beamed as she posed for pictures on the red carpet.

Her glam squad styled her hair into a chic up-do and she wore a simple pair of gold and black earrings which complimented her look.

Claire was joined at the event by Scandal actress Kerry who turned heads in a plunging, silver jumpsuit.

She turned heads as she arrived at the fancy ceremony in the Big Apple.

The futuristic outfit had a long train attached to the back which was covered in silver crosses.

Kerry’s jumpsuit was cut out at the back and she made sure photographers took pictures of the futuristic design from all angles.

Carey Mulligan’s floral dress meant she almost matched with the wall of roses which lined the red carpet.

Like Claire, the gown had a high neckline and was cinched in at the waist.

Tina Fey’s sparkling silver dress was finished off at the bottom with feathers that trailed out to one side.

She carried a chic black clutch bag and grinned when she greeted fans and posed for pictures outside the venue.

Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of US Vogue, managed a rare smile when she arrived on the red carpet.

Like Carey, her bright yellow dress had red and white flowers sewn onto it which was complimented by the pretty backdrop.

She was accompanied by her daughter Bee Shaffer at the ceremony.

Andrew Lloyd Webber was at the event to pick up a lifetime achievement gong.

He said beforehand he was excited about picking up the award without having to worry on the night whether or not he would win it.

Claire Foy is ditching palace life as Lisbeth in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel

Liz, is that you?

Claire Foy
British Academy Television Awards, Arrivals, Royal Festival Hall, London, UK – 13 May 2018

If you’ve ever wanted to see Queen Elizabeth tatted up, glittering with facial piercings and rocking black leather, well – you’re still not in luck. That said though, you’ll be able to imagine what a young goth Liz would have looked like when Claire Foy steps into the role of Lisbeth Salander this year: a.k.a. the badass protagonist of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series.

Given that Claire Foy has closed the door on her role as Queen Elizabeth on Netflix’s The Crown, it was only a matter of time before she moved onto something else. She could have done the safe thing and banked on the role that made her famous by doing a good old British period drama, but we’re absolutely ecstatic that she went for the polar opposite in Lisbeth Salander.

The new film is called The Girl Caught In The Spider’s Web and is based on the fourth novel of the bestselling Millenium series revolving around Lisbeth, written by Stieg Larsson. Claire will be the third person to take up the mantle and motorbike helmet as the unsettling crusader, as Noomi Rapace and more recently Rooney Mara played the role.

We got a first glimpse of Claire looking unlike we’ve ever seen her before in a new trailer, where she’s all decked out in white face paint and rocking a short pixie cut. It seems like the new film directed by Fede Alvarez will set her up as a feminist champion who saves women from abusers and is literally referred to as ‘the righter of wrongs’ in the trailer.

While some Twitter users quibbled with Claire’s Svenglish accent, it looks like it’s going to be a pretty cool action hero flick. Unfortunately, Daniel Craig won’t be reprising his role as journalist Mikael Blomkvist (something that devastates me greatly) and instead Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason will be stepping into his shoes.

Stephen Merchant is also set to star in the gritty film, however his role hasn’t been formally announced. Your guess is as good as ours as to why the funnyman is there to begin with.

The film will be released later this year on 9 November, so you won’t have to wait too long. That’s just enough time to reread the entire Millennium series, if you need a little refresher.

Joshua Leonard on His Horror History, Terrifying Claire Foy in ‘Unsane’

Although actor Joshua Leonard has successfully avoided being labeled as “the horror guy” ever since bursting onto the genre scene in 1999’s The Blair Witch Project, that doesn’t mean he’s sworn off scares forever. Movies like The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) and Shark Night 3D kept a big toe dipped in terrifying waters, but his work as Steven Soderbergh’s nice-guy stalker “David Strine” in this year’s Unsane might be this former found footage victim’s most terrifying portrayal yet. Once an urban legend’s prey has now become the hunter, as Leonard’s lovestruck maniac finds himself at the center of Claire Foy’s incarceration nightmare. Sometimes it’s just fun to be bad — though, as you’ll read below, David is far from a lighthearted comic book antagonist.

FANDOM sat down with the performer and picked apart what it took to create David from scratch. As you can expect, Joshua Leonard “the man” is nothing like his on-screen representation in Unsane. This led to discussions about what classic movies were watched to inspire his wicked ways, what creepy art project may or may not have totally freaked Claire Foy out, and how it felt to be a joyous new father whose alter ego was as dark as La Brea’s tar pits. It certainly wasn’t an easy role to stomach, but who can say no to Steven Soderbergh?

FANDOM: In Unsane, you take a typical movie stalker role and make it your own. Were you inspired by any other films or societal occurrences throughout your preparation?

Leonard: When I first got offered the role — and rapidly accepted — I put a call out on social media for stalker film recommendations. I didn’t realize — until doing so — that there is an entire subgenre of stalker films. I don’t think I’d made that correlation in my mind. You start with Misery, then Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, Play Misty For Me, King Of Comedy. There were some others, too. Chuck And Buck — shout out to my dear friend Miguel Arteta for making one of the more epic, awkward indie stalker films.

I watched all of those and then – on a more serious note – talked to female friends of mine who had been the victims of stalking. It’s just a petrifying thing to have happen to you. A true violation of personal space and safety.

Then I spent a couple days cutting pictures of Claire Foy out of magazines and printing them out from the internet. I made a five foot by five-foot collage of [Foy’s character Sawyer Valentini] and David’s life together. That kind of really put me in the headspace.

FANDOM: Method acting is what they call that, I think?

Leonard: [Laughing] That was as method as I got on this one, luckily. It did help, and it was funny because I made this really upsetting, super creepy collage that I didn’t want my wife or our housekeeper to see so I kept hiding it.

FANDOM: Behind a drape or something?

Leonard: Oh yeah. Then I took a couple pictures on my phone and sent them to [Steven Soderbergh] just to say, “Doing a little character work. Hope you appreciate it.” He loved them and texted right back.

Unfortunately I forgot about them entirely until a week into production after a very long day of work. Claire and I were having a dinner bonding session after shooting all day. We were showing each other pictures of our babies on our phones and she scrolled right by one of those. I jumped for my phone…

FANDOM: Did it get a reaction?

Leonard: [Laughing] She said, “What the f–k is that?” I think I had her convinced I was a pretty decent guy by that point, but the picture of the collage that I made destroyed any such notion of that. To her credit, she proceeded to spend another ten minutes zooming in and staring at it, laughing hysterically. Then she made me send her copies of it.

FANDOM: So a happy ending.

Leonard: A happy ending, but it could have gone either way.


Unsane Joshua Leonard Claire Foy
Leonard takes mind games to the next level in ‘Unsane’

FANDOM: Did you know what you were getting into when you accepted the role of David? Did Steven Soderbergh prepare you for the darkness, or provoke more madness on set?

Leonard: I had read the script before I talked to him for the first time. Unsane is one of those projects where the movie we made was in the script.

[Steven Soderbergh] brought together such a wonderful, weird group of actors. Everybody brings something very special and specific to their own part, but in terms of the feel of the piece and the twists and turns and who the antagonist is, we used the script as a blueprint. I totally knew what I was getting into. I don’t mind playing bad guys. It can be a lot of fun. David was not necessarily a fun character to play because he’s not a fun villain. He’s a very sad villain.

FANDOM: Sadly somewhat more realistic, too.

Leonard: A guy with some real problems of his own and a real sense of empty loneliness who then takes that and really destroys other people’s lives with it. It’s not…

FANDOM: You’re not a Tarantino villain or something.

Leonard: Exactly. Or I’m not a Daniel Day-Lewis in Gangs Of New York — Bill the Butcher.

In our first conversation, I told [Steven Soderbergh] that he’d been a hero of mine for 20+ years. I said I would come out and played a chair in his film if he wanted me to – but I’d never played a role like David. I was curious what he saw in me because the script came in as a straight offer. I wanted to know what the qualities were that he thought that I could bring to David specifically that would help him tell his story.

He said it was more a sense of earnestness and the fact that I wasn’t inherently threatening that interested him. In terms of what I worked on when I got on set, I just did the best I could. It’s a film. Some of it’s really heightened, some of it could happen and some of it probably wouldn’t – but in terms of the character work itself, I just tried to keep it as rooted in David’s brokenness as possible as opposed to going outside of that and making him scarier.

FANDOM: Let’s dive into the filmmaking style a bit. How strange was it not to see these giant camera rigs on set because Steven Soderbergh is using cellphones the whole time?

Leonard: For me it was really exciting. I’ve kept a toe in the indie world long enough that I’ve had some cool opportunities to do some big, behemoth productions, but I think the truly unique experience on Unsane that I didn’t even anticipate going in was the fact that we’re so used to iPhones in our lives that they become really easy to forget. That there’s even a camera there.

FANDOM: You just see people on their iPhones.

Joshua Leonard: It’s an omnipresent piece of technology. The iPhone itself doesn’t feel threatening or sacred so I think it gave us a lot more room to play and be in these rooms with each other. You almost forget that you’re making a movie sometimes.

FANDOM: From an audience perspective, framing was a lot wider. Bigger spaces in focus. Rooms were captured in their full view. Someone would enter all the way on one side and have to walk across the whole area in a static hold where you eliminate the tracking of characters.

Leonard: There’s still certain limitations to shooting on the iPhone that I think will be worked out within the next couple years. You’re capturing in 4K native so you’re capturing a very high quality image, but in terms of focus pulling it’s still very tricky. Because of the chip size you’ve still got this huge depth of field on the cameras where everything’s in focus so [Steven Soderbergh] — being a master filmmaker — understood the medium that we were shooting on. He organized the aesthetic of the film around these kind of tableaus where we could walk in and the scene could play out. When he would move the camera it was so fast.

That’s the other thing about shooting on an iPhone and shooting with almost entirely natural light – you’re never waiting between setups. On a traditional movie you’d shoot half a scene then walk away. Maybe grab a burrito? An hour and a half later you come back to shoot the other side of the scene – yet in the case of Unsane, it would sometimes be two minute turnovers. He would just literally take the phone, put it on the other side of the room and go, “Okay. Let’s go.” You move so fast and that also helps to mitigate any self-consciousness that can build.

So for those who might balk at the idea of filming cinema-quality projects on a smartphone, what immediate benefit would you use to convince them otherwise?

Leonard: Speed and price.

FANDOM: Do you think Unsane would have been made without the benefit of smartphone cost savings? Does Unsane then become a harder sell?

Leonard: I think if Steven Soderbergh wants to make a thriller, Steven Soderbergh can make a thriller. He just finished another film that he shot on an iPhone.

FANDOM: So much for his short-lived retirement plans.

Leonard: He was wrapping his film the day before our Unsane premiere, and we just shot this one a little over six months ago. The man is prolific. He’ll put normal humans to shame.

FANDOM: He might have even written Logan Lucky, if rumors are true.

Leonard: [Smirks] He might have.

FANDOM: I can only imagine how many pseudonyms he has at this point.

Leonard: I know of three and I’ve only worked with the guy once. I’m guessing there are some more out there that I don’t know about. I’m not even in the inside circle.

FANDOM: I question the crew size on every Soderbergh movie now.

Leonard: “It’s a funny thing about that actor, Josh Leonard. Not really Josh Leonard. Josh Leonard is just Soderbergh’s pseudonym for his acting.”


Joshua Leonard Blair Witch Project
‘The Blair Witch Project’ kicked off the found footage movie craze.

FANDOM: I wanted to bring up your role in The Blair Witch Project, next. Even though Unsane is a narrative film, were there similarities to shooting a found footage movie versus something on the iPhone? Is it still that guerrilla-style even in traditional formatting?

Leonard: The direct line I would draw between The Blair Witch Project and Unsane is that we were trying to do something that there wasn’t much of a set precedent for. In both cases, the budgets were low enough that creators had total autonomy over their own projects. These filmmakers lived, died and created on their own instincts, under the set of constraints that they had. On The Blair Witch Project, our biggest constraint was that none of us had two nickels to rub together. On Unsane it was that [Steven Soderbergh] chose to use the iPhone and – I believe – used his own money. He was going to make damn sure the project didn’t inflate.

FANDOM: It feels like a natural evolution in cinematic experimentation.

Leonard: Both were experiments. Both had real chances of falling flat on their faces. If they had, not many people would be the wiser but you and I wouldn’t be sitting here talking about them now. Or many other found footage films to this date.

FANDOM: I want to bring up your acting choices because after The Blair Witch Project, you could have become “the horror guy” — but you didn’t. Was that a conscious path or one based on opportunity?

Leonard: A little bit of Column A, a little bit of Column B. Sometimes when you work in a freelance profession, the choices you make are based on the opportunities in front of you while others are made because you need the rent to be paid. There’s certainly a lot of stuff that I’ve chosen not to do over the years. I just think what keeps me interested does not necessarily translate into good branding. Such is the path that I’ve chosen for myself.

FANDOM: I bet you didn’t have a crisis of conscience when Steven Soderbergh asked you to be in his film.

Leonard: I’ll say anecdotally that when I got the call from Carmen Cuba, who’s a friend of mine and [Steven Soderbergh’s] longtime casting director, the project was so top secret that in the first phone call she didn’t even want to tell me that he was making the movie. She said, “I’ve got this indie thriller that’s being shot on an iPhone with a really cool group of people,” but I had an eight-month-old baby at the time. It felt like if I came to my wife and said, “I’m going to go three thousand miles away to make a film for two dollars shot on an iPhone,” that I would have come back with one less testicle.

FANDOM: The leash would tighten, alright.

Leonard: So I said, “I would love to, but with a new kid it’s just not a good time to go do a little movie on the East coast.” She said, “You should at least talk to the director.” I was like, “Come on. You know the director’s just going to convince me to do it. I don’t even want to.” And she said, “It’s Steven Soderbergh.” I was like, “Okay. You’ve convinced me. When do I show up? Fuck the baby.”

FANDOM: So next to Soderbergh, if you had your choice of a filmmaker to work with, who would it be? Who haven’t you worked with that you’re dying to?

Leonard: Robert Altman, but that’s not going to happen.

FANDOM: Nope. That you *can* work with. Let’s caveat that.

Leonard: That I can work with? There’s so many out there. What’s the guy’s name who did Rust And Bone and A Prophet? Jacques Audiard — I think he’s spectacular. I also think Jeremy Saulnier is one of my favorites out there right now. He’s next level.

ENTERTAINMENT DEAL UPDATE:

Claire Foy finally responded to the controversy over her pay discrepancy on “The Crown”

Claire Foy finally responded to the controversy over her pay discrepancy on “The Crown”


Claire Foy finally responded to the controversy over her pay discrepancy on “The Crown”

The Queen has finally spoken! Following the controversial report that Claire Foy, star of Netflix drama The Crown, was paid less than co-star Matt Smith — who played her husband, Prince Philip, a character who was undoubtedly a supporting role compared to the freakin’ Queen of England — the actress revealed that she wasn’t the least bit surprised the news caught everyone’s attention.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly on Friday, March 23rd, Claire Foy said this about the upheaval over her paycheck:

“I’m surprised because I’m at the center of it, and anything that I’m at the center of like that is very very odd, and feels very very out of [the] ordinary,” Foy said. “But I’m not [surprised about the interest in the story] in the sense that it was a female-led drama. I’m not surprised that people saw [the story] and went, ‘Oh, that’s a bit odd.’ But I know that Matt feels the same that I do, that it’s odd to find yourself at the center [of a story] that you didn’t particularly ask for.”

The magnanimous Foy added that she “can’t wait to see” the next season of The Crown. “I’ll be asking to see it earlier than it’s available,” she said. “I think Olivia Colman’s amazing.”

The news was just the latest in a string of ongoing revelations about the state of equal pay in Hollywood.

Another recent example of the gender pay gap in Tinseltown is that of Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg. The actors were paid vastly different amounts while working on the movie All the Money in the World. Wahlberg earned $ 1.5 million for the film’s reshoots, while Williams received a per diem of $ 80/day after offering to do the reshoots for free. Wahlberg was also paid *eight times* more than Williams in the first place, even before the reshoots became necessary.

For its part, the production company behind The Crown apologized to Claire Foy for the pay discrepancy.

“We want to apologize to both Claire Foy and to Matt Smith, brilliant actors and friends, who have found themselves at the center of a media storm this week through no fault of their own. Claire and Matt are incredibly gifted actors who, along with the wider cast on The Crown, have worked tirelessly to bring our characters to life with compassion and integrity,” Left Bank Pictures said in a statement.

Showrunners have also promised that moving forward, no one would get paid more than the Queen.

That’s great for incoming star Olivia Colman, who will portray the Queen during the show’s third and fourth seasons. However, it doesn’t necessarily benefit Foy.

Jared Harris, who played Foy’s onscreen father, King George VI, said he believes the only way to rectify the situation is to compensate Foy with back pay so that her salary retroactively matches Smith’s.

“She deserves to be paid as much as [Smith] was, she worked longer hours,” Harris told Digital Spy. “Her performance is a huge reason why this thing is going to have a season 3, 4, 5 and 6. She’s a massive part of it. They should write a [check], it wouldn’t be that much either what they’re talking about, I’m sure. She wouldn’t have been that far off what he got paid. Send her a [paycheck] and, in retrospect, bring her pay up to parity.”

There’s no word on whether Left Bank will take Harris up on his suggestion. But we wholeheartedly agree with the idea. Paying Claire Foy what she’s owed — and what she deserves — should be a royal decree, don’t you think?

Well, we’ll give you a clue. She’s soft but edgy – and a whole lot 1980s. Read on for the full story on the Paris Fashion Week debut everyone’s been waiting to see…

info@imaxtree.com

Last week at the Dior show in Paris, designer Maria Grazia Chiuri kicked off proceedings with a copy of the 1971 Linda Nochlin essay ‘Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?’ on each seat. Chiuri is of course the first female designer to lead the house, her spring 2017 debut accompanied by a blizzard of headlines to that effect. On Saturday at Paris Fashion Week, fashion took another leap forward towards, um, the 21st century (newness-obsessed industry aimed at, paid for and supported by women, but run by men? Oh, the irony). Another powerhouse woman, ex-Chloe designer Claire Waight Keller, unveiled her first collection for another historic French house at the Givenchy show in Paris. And boy, was it a well-shod leap. But more of that in a minute.

Waight Keller’s take on the easy, breezy Chloe girl was a success, but Givenchy is a much more refined, structured affair. It’s the house that basically invented the LBD – Hubert’s impeccable designs for his close friend Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s are as iconic as the actress herself.  In recent years, previous Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci had us weak-kneed with desire for his darkly glamorous, gothic designs. So Waight Keller had her work cut out. And she definitely cut it – from the shoulders, to be precise.

Combining 1980s and 1960s references from the archive, the new Givenchy show was a grown-up take on the big-shouldered 80s silhouette that’s popping up on catwalks everywhere, peppered with the odd moment of pure Sixties-Audrey heaven – like a black lace-sleeved dress with three perfect gathered satin bows down the front.

There were roomy sleeveless shirts, padded at the shoulder to give them a triangular, 1980s silhouette, shirt dresses spliced with sections of knife pleats, blouson jackets in denim and leather, skinny leather trousers with splits at the ankle and some delightfully Dynasty graphic prints.

Waight Keller’s experience with the floaty flou side of things came through in ruffled dresses, one in delicate tiers of peppermint green chiffon and edged with scarlet lace.

A standout blue-on-blue striped look,  gathered at the shoulders, managed to look graphic but waftily romantic at the same time – quite the feat.

Of course, we’re saving the very best till last. And we’re talking about the accessories. Namely – cowboy boots. But not your old beaten-up tan leather pair from Portobello, mais non. These are a luxurious, Paris-chic hybrid – plunging into a V at the front, but with a narrow high heel, and trimmed with snakeskin. Black or caramel – this will be our dilemma when these hit the shops. If they don’t all sell out before they actually get there, that is.

On the bag front, boxy miniature styles (some attached to belts) with slim gold double chains and square brass Givenchy-logo clasps have ‘It-bag-in-the-making’ stamped all over them. Not literally, of course – Waight Keller is far too chic for ironic slogans.

Claire Danes And Hugh Dancy Summed Up Parenting In Two Sentences

On Monday, celebrities descended on the the Upper East Side for the annual Met Gala.

Humans of New York photographer Brandon Stanton was on hand to talk to famous attendees and shared notable snapshots and soundbites from the likes of Ryan Reynolds, Serena Williams, and Matt Damon.

But perhaps the most spot-one quote came from none other than Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy.

Speaking about their 4-year-old son Cyrus, they told Stanton, “Having a child was the best thing that ever happened to us. But it is constant company with terrible conversation.”

Too real.
