Now that Tyra is back at America’s Next Top Model, I’m tempted to watch again. It’s been a long time since the show debuted and the industry has shifted quite a bit, with individuals having more power of their brands. Social media and the “Insta Girls” as Vogue calls them, have changed it, too. Is there a selfie challenge? Or a Snapchat filter face-off?
Kaia Gerber lands her first solo Vogue cover (she previously covered Vogue Paris with her mom). Does this mean the supermodel roll-out is complete, or is American Vogue the ultimate goal? That’s a very tough nut to crack for models as Anna tends to favour non-model celebrities.
A couple of months back, someone wrote in to ask me if there was any tension between Rashida Jones and Tracee Ellis Ross because although the two grew up as family friends through their parents, they didn’t seem to ever overlap on social media or in their social circles. I’m happy to report that not only is there no tension, but these two clearly adore one another. (Lainey: also Rashida plays Bow’s sister on black-ish!)
Sarah wrote about this today. I mean of all actors, Marky Mark.
Before you condemn Wahlberg for this, consider the level of acting talent he’s bringing to this project & then condemn him way more enthusiastically. https://t.co/2t9MxTsXYu— Paul F. Tompkins (@PFTompkins) January 10, 2018
The other day a James Marsden movie was on, followed by Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, and it made me wonder who is more famous, James Marsden or Josh Duhamel. Would you say they are about even? I would have to give it to Josh because he was married to Fergie. And I wonder if that’s why James has never really been able to reach the tipping point – no high profile relationship to push him to the next level.
Do you think Cersei went unrecognized at the Globes because her hair is different? Because honestly, between getting a selfie with Cersei or Jon Snow or Khaleesi, I’m going with Cersei.
I’ve never owned a cat, but bringing home three kittens at once seems like a lot of work.
She doesn’t speak, or move, or even take off her sunglasses, but this 9 second video of Sharon Stone is the best thing I’ve seen today. Maybe this week.
Again, Tessa Thompson has to refocus the conversation away from Lena Dunham and towards the work. You know who’s doing zero to re-center the conversation around Time’s Up? Lena Dunham. But she did do a (now expired) Insta story, thanking people who admire her work and mentioning being part of so many great “movements and moments” for women.
This was not meant as an apology, as much as an attempt to re-center the conversation around the work. The truth remains:— Tessa Thompson (@TessaThompson_x) January 9, 2018
Many women, particularly women of color, don’t feel safe and seen. To those women, like Aurora Perrineau—I see you. I am with you. This must be clear. pic.twitter.com/XOEZZYfGpB
