#50: THE WEEK IN REVIEW
The end (of 2015) is near. But don’t worry; exciting things are beginning too, like Saint West’s life for example. This is a roundup of the fashion and entertainment news from the past seven days.
AND THE NOMINEES ARE…
A new year isn’t only synonymous with resolutions, being endlessly tired and short on money. The start of a new year means award season – so naturally the end of the old one means nominee announcements. During the past week we saw Taylor Swift, The Weeknd and Ed Sheeran clean house in all the key categories for the Grammys, and Beasts of No Nations, The Big Short, Spotlight, Straight Outta Compton and Trumbo get nominated in the category Outstanding Performance by a Cast at the SAG [Screen Actors Guild] awards. The red carpets are waiting to be walked.
DIOR WON’T RUSH INTO SOMETHING NEW
Who’s up next for Dior? No one knows. The powerhouse doesn’t want to rush into a new relationship with a star designer after Raf Simons departure last month. Without a creative director the brand’s in-house team alone will design its S/S haute couture and A/W 16 collections. This while the process to find the perfect successor to Raf Simons is been allowed to take time.
MORE MURRAY TO COME
Sofia Coppola just delivered the dose of Bill Murray we’ve all craved for the holiday season with the Netflix exclusive A Very Murray Christmas, which premiered on 4 December. In other Murray related news, the now 65-year-old actor revealed that he is going to do the voice of a dog in Wes Anderson’s next stop-motion film project. There’s not yet a lot of information about the film except that it’ll be based on a Japanese story. It couldn’t be much more vague than that.
HAVE WE NOT SEEN THE LAST FROM PANEM?
The Hunger Games are finished! With the three existing books all turned into blockbuster films we’ve had to accept the fact that Katniss, Peeta, Gale, et al. are moving on with their lives, and we with ours. But perhaps that’s not the case. Entertainment Company Lionsgate is looking into making one – or several –prequels to the trilogy, which when we read it sounds very logical. It would be good with some more background to the story.
THE ARRIVAL OF THE SAINT
Last but not least on this week’s roundup is the most talked-about birth of 2015: Kim Kardashian’s and Kanye West’s son Saint. We’re still waiting for the clan to blow up our Instagram feeds with pictures and videos of the family’s newest member. Till then we have to rely on grandma Kris for information. In an interview with E!, she said the Kimye family is staying at her house, that Saint looks just like his sister – and is “delicious”. Yeezus!
