Here are four delightfully inspirational reasons to reconsider. They flew into Chicago on October 20, 2018. The red carpet, spangled with golden stars bearing their names, was rolled out and ready. Shimmery satin sashes adorned each chair. Portraits of Ukrainian American Hollywood legends peered from each table’s centerpiece and from the video montage on the big screen. From the moment they arrived, the guests of honor at the Ukrainian National Museum’s “Ukrainians in Hollywood” gala were embraced by both old friends and new fans vying for photos in front of the Oscars-worthy “step and repeat.” Lusia Strus, Halia Bahmet, Zorianna Kit … [Read more...] about Ukrainian National Museum’s red carpet gala earns five-star rating
Hollywood red carpet
The Fiji Water Girl was the talk of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, as she photobombed the great and good of Hollywood, while they posed on the red carpet. She became the talk of the night after standing behind stars on the red carpet with her tray of Fiji Water. By the end of the night, there had been over 50,000 tweets mentioning her presence on the red carpet and the phenomena was born. Fast forward to the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards and the Fiji Water Girl was once again on the red carpet but this time it wasn't Kelleth Cuthbert in person but a cardboard cutout version of her and the model that caused a sensation was not happy that she had been used again. So enraged was she, Kelleth, whose real name is Kelly Steinbach, is now suing Fiji Water and its parent company, The Wonderful Company, for allegedly creating a marketing campaign around her viral moment without permission.

Awards season is not, as a rule, a terribly exciting time for men’s fashion. As women dominate the photo opportunities and red-carpet chatter with their extravagant haute-couture gowns, expectations of men have remained fixed for decades: black tie, white shirt, patent-leather shoes, and you’re ready to go. Some variations are permitted, but usually not enough to earn more than a few seconds’ notice. Which is why Michael B Jordan bewildered onlookers at Sunday night’s Screen Actors’ Guild awards by slipping a purple floral harness over an otherwise sleek double-breasted suit. Timothee Chalamet wore a sparkly black version to the Golden Globes last month. Both looks bring to mind the Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon’s fetishwear-inspired tuxedo at last year’s Oscars – shoulderless, so as to give suitable exposure to the leather-and-steel BDSM harness crossing his chest.
