And the Oscar hosting gig for 2017 goes to...
ENVELOPE OPENING NOISE
The 'Late Night with....' host will be taking the stage alongside the little golden man in February for the 89th Academy Awards.
The comedian, who's previous MC resume includes the Emmy Awards, inherits the host's chair (hot seat?) from Chris Rock.
"I really don’t let that stuff get to me."
In a new interview with Complex, Sofia Richie, daughter of music icon Lionel Richie, opens up about the challenges she has faced while working in the modelling industry. The 5-foot-6 model says she's often criticized because of her petite stature. "People obviously don’t respect some of the shoots I do because I’m short," she explained.
However the 18-year-old model she promises she doesn't let criticism faze her. "It’s not like I called and begged these designers to work with me," she says. "They felt my vibe and we were cool and that’s that. I really don’t let that stuff get to me."
Other highlights of the interview? Richie did not want to talk about Justin Bieber. Richie's publicist made it clear that "no questions" could be asked about the former fling. Sad face.
While the status of Sofia and Justin's romance remains unclear, one thing is certain. Right now Sofia is focusing on her career. "I'm super interested in having a fashion line which I am kind of working on, but I really love modelling because I get to be involved with clothes and designers. I get to hear them out and see what they're interested in. I'm kind of taking notes in the corner."
She beat her younger sis Bella & BFF Kendall.
Gigi had an emotional night at Britain's Fashion Awards last night, after being awarded the title of International Model of the Year by one of her idols, Donatella Versace.
To be voted for this award by the @britishfashioncouncil, to stand in front of an audience full of my greatest inspirations, idols, and friends, and to be presented International Model of the Year by my angel @donatella_versace was one of the most humbling and emotional experiences of my life. To walk into that room and feel so at home is a great blessing and I have & will cherish every friend, memory, lesson and adventure this industry has given me, forever. I can't wait to continue to grow and create with all of you, and to see what the future holds !! Make a conscious effort every day to be someone people enjoy working with, and your possibilities will surprise you. ❤️
The award was presented by the British Fashion Council, the force behind London Fashion Week and a champion of British fashion. The council's annual awards ceremony celebrates the best of the best in global fashion.
Other recipients at the start-studded show were Gucci's Alessandro Michele, who won best International Ready-To-Wear Designer, and Jaden and Willow Smith, who received the New Fashion Icons award.
Demna Gvasalia also picked up International Ready-To-Wear Designer for his work at Balenciaga, and his label Vetements won best International Urban Luxury Brand.
All in all, Gigi was among some fashion greats. Watch a clip of her acceptance speech here:
In news that surprises nobody, the 2017 Grammy nominations were just announced, and well, Beyonce slayed (sleighed for seasonality since it's December? No. Cool).
A little record called Lemonade dominated this year's music award nominations, appearing on the short list for 9 categories, including album of the year, song of the year (for 'Formation'), and best video.
Our boy Drake, however, was not far behind—he has 8 nominations, as do Kanye and Rihanna.
Overall, the list wasn't particularly surprising (Adele did pretty well for herself too), bar the somewhat obscure choice of Sturgill Simpson's A Sailor's Guide to Earth in the Album of the Year category. That said—it's a fantastic old school country album that certainly deserves the spot.
Now how many sleeps until February 12?!
