Grace Kelly had the unique distinction of being both Hollywood and Monegasque royalty.

After she gave up her Hollywood career to marry Prince Rainier III of Monaco, Princess Grace remained so effortlessly chic one of the most famous Hermès bags would be named in her honor - the Kelly. We've rounded up her best quotes, looks, and moments, from her early studio days to her life as European royalty.

Neneh Cherry sweeps into the bustle of a Pinterest-pretty Kensal Rise photography studio with smiles, vigorous handshakes and an impish, contagious energy. Yes, she is looking forward to the day’s shoot. No, she doesn’t mind removing her white headwrap so her shower-damp hair can be prepared by the waiting glam team. And, while she has brought her own breakfast ("Soaked oats, made by my husband," she says with a proud smile), she’ll take a tea with "any kinda alternative milk" if we have it. Basically, Cherry is the woman you would expect and hope she would be, if you had been following her from her emergence in 1988 with ‘Buffalo Stance’, to her mega-selling Nineties evolution (‘7 Seconds’, her 1994 duet with Youssou N’Dour, was No1 in France for 16 consecutive weeks), through her years as an abiding streetwear muse, and right up to her current guise as the creatively active matriarch of an expanding musical dynasty. The … [Read more...] about Neneh Cherry: Politics, power, motherhood and style

Jonas Carpignano struck gold with the non-professional cast of his new movie, set among the Roma gypsy community in Calabria – and especially with his terrific teenage lead, Pio Amato. It has been called a resurgence of neorealism with echoes of De Sica and Visconti; Martin Scorsese is executive producer, and you can see his influence in the vibrancy of the family meal scenes. But maybe it’s more an inspired naturalism or instinctualism. There is something euphoric, but also sad, about watching an unschooled performer dominate through some mysterious and serendipitous rightness in the matching of face, performer and material. Will he ever be as good again – that’s if he wants to be an actor? Will life itself ever seem as real to him as this? (Carpignano developed the movie from his earlier short of the same name and his debut feature, Mediterranea, from 2015.) Amato plays a smart, scrappy teenager in a sprawling clan from Ciambra – essentially playing … [Read more...] about The Ciambra review – rush of storytelling and style
