The Tiffany Diamond makes it's 4th historic debut on Gal Gadot in the Kenneth Branagh film 'Death on the Nile’

The incomparable 128-carat Tiffany Diamond, made famous by Audrey Hepburn and last worn by Lady Gaga, will appear in the new 20th Century Studios daring mystery-thriller, “Death on the Nile,” based on Agatha Christie’s 1937 novel.

A recreation of The Tiffany Diamond is prominently featured at the center of the storyline, alongside other Tiffany designs worn throughout the film. “Death on the Nile” stars Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Kenneth Branagh, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hamer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright.

 “The Tiffany Diamond is a priceless symbol of the highest standards of virtuosity and craftsmanship at Tiffany, and rarely makes an appearance beyond its vault,” said Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer. “A central role in the adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic novel is deserving of our priceless diamond.”

The Tiffany Diamond, a rare fancy yellow diamond, was unearthed in 1877 as a 287.42-carat rough diamond from the Kimberley mines of South Africa and procured by Charles Lewis Tiffany. In 1878, the rough diamond was cut in Paris into a 128.54-carat cushion-shape brilliant with an unprecedented 82 facets, revealing thes stone’s extraordinary fire and beauty.

This October, Tiffany & Co. will promote the film in stores and across its digital platforms, highlighting Tiffany’s radiant yellow diamonds and the exceptional collections seen on screen. Select Tiffany stores will feature a “Death on the Nile” curation of diamond-intensive Tiffany jewelry reflecting looks from the film, including exquisite and one-of-a-kind high jewelry pieces, Tiffany & Co. Victoria and Schlumberger® designs.

In addition, store windows that capture the spirit of Christie’s thrilling mystery and feature jewelry from the film will be featured at the Tiffany Flagship Next Door in New York, the Beverly Hills boutique in Los Angeles, and the Old Bond Street location in London.

In “Death on the Nile,” Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, the stunning Tiffany Diamond, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement.

The Rolling Stones to open ‘world exclusive’ flagship store on London's historic Carnaby Street

The rock ‘n’ roll legends that are the Rolling Stones will open a world-first flagship store, ‘RS No. 9 Carnaby’ at 9 Carnaby Street in London’s Soho.

The new store, created in partnership with Bravado, Universal Music Group’s merchandise and brand management company, will feature all the hallmarks of the iconic band and include exclusive new fashion and merchandise under the ‘RS No. 9 Carnaby’ brand available in-store and online beginning 9 September 2020.

The Rolling Stones said: “Soho has always encapsulated Rock ’n’ Roll so Carnaby Street was the perfect spot for our own store. We are confident this exciting project that our friends at Bravado have created will be an unrivalled experience for everyone to come to London and enjoy.”

The collections include exclusive and contemporary collaboration pieces for fans of all ages, including men’s, women’s and children’s fashion and accessories. A special glassware has been developed with Baccarat engraved with the Rolling Stones tongue. The store will feature chairs and scarves from The Soloist, and raincoats and hats from premium Swedish raincoat brand Stutterheim.

The store will also introduce ‘Stones Red,’ the official colour from Pantone which is established from the first use of the band’s iconic logo. A collection celebrating the Rolling Stones official Pantone colour will also launch with the store.

The band’s continuing album and single releases will be at the heart of the shop’s pulse and Bowers & Wilkins speakers will play tracks from the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world including the upcoming release of the remastered Goats Head Soup album and Scarlet single. You can’t always get what you want, but you’ll definitely be able to get what you need.

Jointly curated by the Rolling Stones and Bravado, the shop fit follows the brand colours of red and black and the glass floor features lyrics, while the fitting rooms are adorned with iconic album artwork.

Mat Vlasic, CEO, Bravado said: “With this innovative partnership, the Rolling Stones add yet another cultural touchpoint to their rich legacy. RS No. 9 Carnaby is the result of years of planning and decades of building one of the world’s most recognized brands. It creates a destination where fans can connect and immerse themselves in the music, style and spirit of one of the world’s most iconic and beloved bands.”

For those in the know, the store’s window features a world first soundwave installation – taken from the opening to the 1966 hit track ‘Paint It Black’. One thing is for sure, when this shop opens on 9 September, fans of the band will want to be there.

Shellac or a Parma? Australia's Hospitality and Hair & Beauty Industries join forces to help businesses

The Card Network has partnered with The Restaurant and Catering Association, The Australian Hotels Association and the Hair and Beauty Industry of Australia to launch a range of Gift Cards exclusively available at Woolworths to encourage support for Aussie industries hit hardest in recent months.

The Restaurant Gift Card, The Pub and Bar Gift Card, The Pamper Gift Card and The Cinema Gift Card can be redeemed at any cinema, restaurant, pub and bar or hair and beauty salon that accept eftpos – at no cost to the venue or business.

Chef and restaurateur, Matt Moran of Sydney’s Aria, Chiswick, and North Bondi Fish says “The Restaurant Gift Card is a win for the hospitality industry at a time when they need support most and a win for diners, who can use the card at any of their favourite restaurants or bars around the country”.

Unlike any other gift card syndicate on the market with a small number of participating venues, each gift card in the range can be used Australia wide, with the value redeemed across as many businesses in the industry as the recipient chooses. This allows the gift giver to make personalised decisions about the gift they want to give, while the recipient is free to choose exactly where they want to go.

The range is also the first gift card syndicate of its kind valid in areas outside the inner-city, attracting support from key industry bodies.

“This is a great initiative for people to show their support for their local. Hotels have been in the front line in the battle against COVID-19 and we are proud of the role we have played, but it has come at a huge economic cost, says Australian Hotels Association, NSW CEO John Whelan.

“This gift card is just another way people can help struggling hotels get back on their feet – particularly in the bush.”

TCN hopes to inspire fellow Australians to get behind the hospitality and beauty industries by treating friends, family and loved ones to some much needed indulgence.

“Gift giving doesn’t have to be limited to birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions; there are plenty of reasons to be generous all year around, and this is a really good way to treat the ones you love while investing back into some of Australia’s hardest hit industries, says The Card Network co-founder, Nick Sims.

“By partnering with Woolworths, we’re able to make it convenient for Aussies to get behind their favourite restaurants, pubs, bars and salons at a time when many businesses are trying to get back on their feet. This is more than a short-term initiative; this is about providing long term value,” he says.

The range is available in denominations of $50 or $100 at Woolworths nationally or via TCN’s online store. A digital card can be purchased online and added to a mobile wallet to ‘tap & pay’ with Apple Pay or Android Pay. The cards have a three-year expiry from date of purchase.

This is TCN’s second collection of Gift Cards following the release of Him, Her, Active, Kids, Home and Baby released in Woolworths late last year.

‘Van Gogh Alive’ in Sydney

Emma Triggs, founder and CEO of the M Agency and Promoter of Van Gogh Alive at M-Live, together with creator Bruce Peterson, owner and founder of Grande Exhibitions, are proud to bring Van Gogh Alive to Australia to premiere in Sydney as one of the first purpose-built COVID-aware arts and entertainment initiatives.

Van Gogh Alive is the large-scale, multi-sensory experience that has inspired over 6 million people across 50 cities around the world including Rome, Milan, Berlin, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Moscow and many more. The digital spectacular opens on Friday 18 September 2020 for a strictly limited COVID-aware season at The Royal Hall of Industries. The Royal Hall of Industries is registered as a COVID-safe venue.

This is no ordinary art exhibition. Van Gogh’s works have been exhibited and admired for over a century – but never like this. Van Gogh Alive gives visitors the unique opportunity to immerse themselves into Van Gogh’s artistry and truly venture into his world. From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and fragrance that has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience.

Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life, giving visitors the sensation of walking right into his paintings, a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational. Adults and children delight in the super-scale show, viewing artworks from new angles and discovering unique perspectives. Visitors also have the chance to examine Van Gogh’s sources of inspiration via photographs and video displayed alongside his works.

“Van Gogh Alive presents Van Gogh and his work in an entirely different, contemporary light. It is one of the most immersive and sharable experiences I’ve ever seen. The fact that it is absolutely no-touch makes it ideal in today’s COVID-aware climate,” says Emma Triggs. “We hope everyone enjoys this amazing multi-sensory exhibition. It’s a great opportunity to experience art in a completely new way and to reconnect with creative culture in a safe space.”

The brainchild of Melbourne-based Bruce Peterson, Van Gogh Alive uses Grande Exhibitions’ state-of-the-art SENSORY4™ system that combines multi-channel motion graphics beamed through up to 40 high-definition projectors with cinema-quality surround sound. Set to an evocative classical score, a thrilling display of over 3,000 enormous crystal-clear images is beamed across walls, columns and floors. At such a scale, the vibrant brushstrokes and vivid details of Van Gogh’s work are truly breathtaking.

“We are proud that Grande Exhibitions really has redefined the way art and culture is enjoyed by enormous numbers of people around the world,” says Peterson. “I am absolutely thrilled, especially in these crazy surreal times, to finally be able to showcase our artistry and technical talents in our home country as part of such a successful global tour”.

The blockbuster experience is one of the first large-scale arts events to open with COVID-aware considerations that exceed government public health guidelines. Controlled visitor capacities (that allow for more than the recommended four-square metres per person) and managed visitor flow mean visitors can easily respect social-distancing advice. The exhibition also meets the highest hygiene standards with no touch points, hand sanitisers, masks and daily deep cleaning.

Importantly for Sydneysiders, Van Gogh Alive brings the much-loved Royal Hall of Industries back into cultural life. The 1913 building is aesthetically and spatially ideal for presenting the digital journey into the life and work of the post-Impressionist fin-de-siecle artist Van Gogh.

“The most anticipated exhibition of the year . . . venture into a sensory journey like no other of its kind.” — Forbes
