Blanca Li: the dance powerhouse wanted by everyone from Daft Punk to Beyoncé
Guardian (UK) - 4 days
She has blazed a trail from Granada to New York to Paris, rapping, partying and dancing in a latex flamenco dress. Is Britain ready for Blanca Li and her ramshackle dancing robots? I didn’t realise what a big deal Blanca Li was until she smuggled me into a Jean-Paul Gaultier show in Paris. We pulled up, stepped out of the car and hit a barrage of flashbulbs. “This way!” I heard hordes of snappers shout. “Over here!” Young women brandishing microphones rushed towards us for quotes, as the 53-year-old Li posed with dancerly elegance: small frame, wide smile and a hint of flamenco panache. Inside, where Li had a front-row seat, famous photographers came over and showered her with air kisses. Catherine Deneuve stopped to say hello. Li, it seems, is not your ordinary choreographer. She is little-known in the UK: her company’s latest show, in which they dance with robots, marks only their second visit. But you have probably seen Li’s work before– in Daft Punk’s Around the World video, in t ...

Older woman, younger man? A 'valid comic idea' to Woody Allen
Yahoo News - 10 months
After unveiling his latest film, "Cafe Society", in Cannes, featuring a love story between a young woman and powerful older man, Allen was asked if he would ever consider switching the roles -- something still somewhat taboo on the big screen. As if to inspire him, French film queen Catherine Deneuve, 72, drew a standing ovation for a long and passionate kiss with French actor Laurent Lafitte, 42, on stage at the opening of the festival. Allen has had a turbulent personal life clouded by scandal after entering a relationship with Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his former partner Mia Farrow, when Previn was only 21.

Fashion It-Girl Sabine Ghanem Dishes on Her Personal Style and Impossibly Chic Wardrobe.
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Jewelry designer Sabine G came on the scene just two years ago and has rapidly gained attention not only for her jewels, but for her flawless style and the jet-set company she keeps. Profiles by Vogue, W and Harper's Bazaar have immortalized her as a veritable fashion darling. But perhaps she is best known for her nuptials this past May to Joseph Getty which took place over the course of a weekend in Rome. Lavish parties and Liaisons Dangereux costumes headlined the festivities in advance of the wedding to which she wore a regal, showstopping Haute Couture Schiaparelli gown complete with a sun-embroidered cape, and matching shoes. Not one to shy away from drama of the sartorial kind, this fashion it-girl ups her game at every appearance. As a jewelry lover, I am obsessed with her eponymous collection. Particularly her pink sapphire and diamond Harlequin ring [note to husband.] But I would be lying if I didn't admit to a massive case of closet envy. This girl has amazing clothes - and ...

Catherine Deneuve movie to open this year's Cannes festival
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Catherine Deneuve's latest movie, "La Tete Haute", will open next month's Cannes Film Festival, the organisers said Monday. The French film -- whose title translates as "holding one's head high" -- tells the story of a juvenile delinquent, a social worker trying to save him, and a children's court judge. It was made by Emmanuelle Bercot, who previously directed French screen icon Deneuve in a 2013 road-trip movie titled "On My Way". Cannes in the past has often tapped big-budget US productions to kick off the festival and give it some Hollywood glamour, such as "Grace of Monaco" with Nicole Kidman last year, and "The Great Gatsby" with Leonardo DiCaprio the year before.

During an interview at the Cannes Film Festival with Ali Naderzad, Deneuve was asked which was her own favorite film. "I still say it was The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. To do a film completely with music like an opera was an incredible experience. But to work with music all the time, it's such a lift, you know? It's an opera, it's very different." Deneuve continues to work steadily making at least two or three films per year. Deneuve appeared nude in two Playboy pictorials in 1963 and 1965. Her image was used to represent Marianne, the national symbol of France, from 1985 to 1989. As the face of Chanel No. 5 in the late 1970s, she caused sales of the perfume to soar in the United Statesso much so that the American press, captivated by her charm, nominated her as the world's most elegant woman. In 1983, American Home Products retained her to represent their cosmetics line and hired world-renowned photographer Richard Avedon to promote its line of Youth Garde cosmetics, for which she famously proclaimed, "Look closely. Next year I will be 40."
