Westworld star James Marsden to visit Australia

Leading Hollywood actor and star of HBO’s smash-hit series Westworld, James Marsden, will visit Sydney from April 30 to May 1 to promote the launch of the highly-anticipated second season of Westworld on Foxtel.

The internationally-renowned actor has enjoyed a hugely successful career spanning over 25 years, with credits including The Notebook, Superman Returns, Hairspray, Enchanted, 27 Dresses, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Best of Me, The Butler, Bachelorette and X-Men, where he played the character of Cyclops across the entire X-Men franchise.

Marsden’s latest role sees him play lead character and mysterious android host Teddy in the Emmy- nomated television series Westworld – a handsome transient with a quick draw and a dark past, who longs for a simpler life. He joins an exceptional cast including Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris and Thandie Newton.

Set in the not-too-distant future, Westworld is a futuristic adventure park modelled after America’s Wild West and populated by human-like android hosts. Paying guests immerse themselves in the Westworld universe, where every detail and scenario have been planned, scripted and executed by a team of brilliant scientists and programmers working in close proximity to the park. However, a group of the android hosts soon begin to deviate from their programmers’ carefully planned scripts, in a disturbing pattern of abnormal behaviour.

CHANEL opens SAINT-TROPEZ SEASONAL BOUTIQUE. As you do . . .

This year once again, from April to October, CHANEL is installing its seasonal boutique in the heart of the village of Saint-Tropez. For the last 9 years it has become an essential summer rendezvous, an interlude that combines relaxation with the discovery of a new décor in the La Mistralée townhouse.

It is a new perception of light and space, an invitation to get carried away in an ultra-modern world. From the large living room to the vast conservatory, the walls are covered with big sheets of untreated metal.

A waxed green concrete floor accompanies the steps of the visitor throughout. Inspired by the container and the docks of the Port of Hamburg, the décor pays tribute here to the Métiers d’art 2017/18 collection that will be available from May 31st.

In metal alcoves, on floating tables and on metal rails, the Spring-Summer 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection and its accessories open the season. A selection of Fine Jewellery will also be presented as well as the collection COCO CRUSH and the latest CODE COCO watch in steel or black ceramic.

Outside, the garden furniture is minimalist and geometric: large square-shape poufs surround the swimming pool. The architecture appears to be draped in camouflage, melting it completely into the natural landscape. The pool house is painted in patinated dark green and is pierced with metal frames allowing glimpses of a luxuriant décor.

Inside, the walls are swathed in metal and the floor is covered with waxed dark green concrete. An audacious showcase to present the very first COCO BEACH de CHANEL swimwear and beachwear collection, available from the month of June. The collection is created for the beach and seaside resorts so naturally it makes a stopover in this legendary village.

The CHANEL pop-up boutique in Saint-Tropez opens its doors on April 14th, 2018 and will remain open until October 28th.

Monday to Sunday: 10am – 1.30pm / 3.30pm – 8pm (4.30pm to 9pm in July and August)

Estée Lauder Signs Karlie Kloss

Estée Lauder has announced that it has signed Karlie Kloss, model, entrepreneur and philanthropist, as its newest Global Spokesmodel and Brand Ambassador. Karlie joins the current roster of Estée Lauder spokesmodels Carolyn Murphy, Fei Fei Sun, Gabriella Wilde, Hilary Rhoda, Joan Smalls, Kendall Jenner, Misty Copeland and Yang Mi.

Karlie’s first campaigns will debut beginning in July 2018 across digital, social, TV, in-store and print to support Estée Lauder’s iconic products including Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick, Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup and Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme. These campaigns were shot by Josh Olins in Los Angeles and Palm Springs.

Karlie’s production company, Klossy productions, will also partner with Estée Lauder to create Karlie’s own beauty content to share with over 16 million followers across her social and digital platforms.

“It is a dream come true to join the Estée Lauder family,” said Karlie Kloss. “I am so inspired by the brand’s legacy and values —from the entrepreneurial spirit of Estée herself to the company’s unparalleled commitment to creating best in class products for women around the world. I could not be more proud and honored to be part of such an iconic brand.”
