In her interview, Rachel talks about how roles for women in movies have become one-dimensional. “If you look at movies that are pre-’60s feminism, women didn’t just have to be sweet and sympathetic,” the actress says. Look at the characters of Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck, Elizabeth Taylor: fierce, powerful, difficult women. After the ’80s, women had to be more likeable. They have to be pleasing, sweet, smiling and subservient. Women are being punished by stories. Probably for feminism.”

Set to hit theaters on September 30th, Rachel Weisz takes on the role of writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt in ‘Denial’. The movie follows the events of how Lipstadt was sued by a fellow historian for libel after she accused him of being a Holocaust denier. When asked about how she takes on a new acting role, Rachel tellsThe Edit, “[The] world of storytelling and make-believe is genuinely part of my make-up. All of my roles are me, and none of them are at the same time. The thing about stories is [they’re] crammed with incredible drama. Real life is so much more ordinary.”

If you thought Jared Leto was excited to wear that green Gucci coat, just imagine his face when he sees this: The first image from his Gucci Guilty fragrance campaign is finally here.

In the image, he stars alongside models Julia Hafstrom, who has the fortune of being naked in the bathtub with him, and Vera Van Erp, who remains clothed on the sidelines, but is the recipient of a lovely handhold from Hafstrom. There will also be a video component, launching in September, that features the trio sexily traipsing around a baroque Venetian palazzo, per WWD. Check out what appears to be a sneak peek of that below.

Leto and crew replace original Gucci Guilty campaign stars Evan Rachel Wood and Chris Evans; the Evan/Evans duo have appeared in equally sexy Frank Miller-shot, film noir-style spots since the fragrance launched in 2010. The new campaign is more in line with the aesthetic of current Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele. Leto, of course, is a friend of Michele's, and the new ads and commercial spots are shot by brand favorite Glen Luchford. Guilty is Gucci's best-selling fragrance.

This isn't Leto's first commercial; previously, he's appeared in spots forHugo Boss fragrances and Coca Cola

We've reached out to Gucci and will update once more details and images are revealed.

Free People Capitalizes on Athleisure with Fall 2016 Good Sport Collection


Is the athleisure trend ever going to stop? As far as we know, the answer is no! Free People has just capitalized on what could be dubbed as the athleisure movement, with a brand new fall 2016 line-up entitled as the ‘Good Sport’ collection that is already available for purchase at FreePeople.com.

Free People Fall 2016 Good Sport Collection

With more than 40 different styles that could be easily flaunted at any occasion, Free People’s Good Sport collection features go-to items especially for the pre-fall transitional season. That said, get ready for tons of cozy garments, warm colors and small details that are absolutely adorable.

As for the line-up’s main influences, aside from athleisure, most of the ensembles could be linked to Gucci’s iconic geek style, as well as Prada’s urban-chic attitude, the lines, cuts and silhouettes of which are perfectly in tune with these colder months’ Nineties-inspired vibes.

The most interesting part is, however, how incredibly harmonized the Nineties and late Seventies are throughout the collection, as it was during those decades that a similar, yet more vintage athleisure trend began to grow. That’s why we get comfy sweatpants combined with super-fancy aviator-style sunglasses, or even laced-up hoodies paired with urban-inspired biker ankle boots.

Free People Fall 2016 Good Sport Collection

As for the overall color palette, Free People focused on grays, dark greens, burgundy and light-blue shades, leaving it up to the cheerful pops of red ochre and yellow to revamp the entire collection.

Following what is going to be one of fall’s leading trends, Free People will provide you with all the essentials you might need to stay warm, from knit beanies to cute socks. Other appealing accessories include sporty-chic watches, glittery headphones and holographic iPhone cases, which could easily become perfect birthday gifts as well.

Back to the clothing section, Free People’s fall 2016 Good Sport collection is not only perfect for those who love the athleisure trend, but for those who are indeed good at sports too. Besides sweatpants and joggers, the line-up also features super cozy pullovers, such as the Yo Yo Pullover, as well as edgy leggings and sports bras, the refined lines and rich colors of which make them perfect for transitioning from day to night just by adding the right accessory and jacket.

Free People Fall 2016 Good Sport Collection

The outerwear section, which varies from coats to hoodies, features two of the collection’s must-haves: the Sedwick Peacot and the Nicholas K Farley Trench. Both are wintery and a perfect transitional season investment accordingly, and will please those who love clean-cut silhouettes, as well as those who prefer structured, airy figures.

Other It-items include the Loud and Proud mini dress with a plunging-V neckline and contrasting hems (which is the result of the perfect mixture of the Preppy and the grunge Nineties styles), and the sensual Nothing But Net bralette, which those who are truly fond of the Nineties could even dare to wear over a plain white t-shirt.

The Free People Good Sport collection is already available at the brand’s, with price tags ranging from below $ to $.

Greek Myth Fashion: Hestia, Hebe, & Demeter


Hello, and welcome to another installment of Greek Myth Fashion, where we draw fashion inspiration from Greek mythology. 

In this article, I will complete the series of outfits inspired by the twelve Olympian gods by showing you three outfits inspired by Hestia, Hebe, and Demeter.

Hestia - Goddess of the Hearth

Hestia is the goddess of the hearth, home, domesticity, and architecture. She is a virgin goddess like Athena and Artemis, and she is known for her chastity, kindness, and non-confrontational nature.

Hestia's duty in Olympus is maintaining the fires of the Olympian hearth using the animal sacrifices made by mortals. She traditionally received the first offering during each sacrifice in the household. Failure to maintain the domestic hearth or the temple fires was considered a failure of domestic and religious care.

Products: DressEarringsBraceletsSandals

For a Hestia-inspired look, simplicity is key. And that can be achieved by pairing an orange maxi dress (reminiscent of the hearth) with a pair of gladiator sandals. Additional colors are introduced in the outfit through the set of bracelets and the earrings. 

Hebe - Goddess of Youth

Hebe is the goddess of eternal youth and the cupbearer of Olympus. She served nectar and ambrosia to the gods and goddesses, until she married Heracles after he gained immortality. (Sorry, Disney fans: The movie is very different from the original myths.)

Hebe was a popular art subject between the 18th and 19th centuries, as many royal ladies were portrayed as the goddess. In paintings, Hebe was often depicted alongside an eagle which was thought to either represent her father Zeus, or have the ability to rejuvenate like a phoenix.

Products: TopSkirtBagRing SetLoafers

To capture the youthfulness representative of Hebe, I put together a schoolgirl-with-a-twist outfit. A white blouse with a Peter Pan collar, pleated navy skirt, and black loafers might bring back memories if you had a school uniform. Now add a green crossbody bag with tassels (because green is the color of rejuvenation) and a set of rings, and you have a preppy look perfect for going to lectures.

Demeter - Goddess of Agriculture 

Demeter is the goddess of the harvest, agriculture, and fertility of the earth. She also presides over religious law and the cycle of life and death. And she is the mother of Persephone

Demeter taught mortals the secrets of agriculture, and is the one who determines how bountiful the annual harvest is. Her wrath would immediately lead to famine due to death of the crops.

Products: PantsTopHeelsNecklaceRing

Demeter's patronage over the harvest is best translated into an autumnal outfit. Transition from summer to fall by wearing a pair of yellow culottes and a rust-colored long-sleeved top. Add khaki block heels and accessorize with a leaf pendant necklace and a floral ring. Now you're ready to greet the end of August in style!
