We have another new biopic after yesterday's on Out of Africa author! Deadline reports that Ewan McGregor will lead SIMPLY HALSTON mini TV series about the meteoric rise and fall of the first American celebrity fashion designer as he  develops a worldwide fashion empire that’s synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame, literally defining the era he lives in, 1970’s and ‘80’s New York, until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset… the name Halston itself.

HALSTON, working first as a milliner,  rose to fame after designing the pillbox hat Jacqueline Kennedy wore to her husband’s presidential inauguration in 1961. He then segued to women’s wear with designs that were deemed minimalist but sophisticated, glamorous but comfortable. His celebrity clients included Anjelica Huston, Lauren Bacall, Margaux

  1. I must admit I've never heard about Halston. I only know the big names of italian fashion designers. Pity he died an untimely death!
    These people are usually creative and interesting, and so are the movies made about their life ,designs, and customers.

    The actor chosen to play Halston looks very cute! I like his outfit, his hairstyle, and his smile.

    1. I haven't either, but he was probably bought by Revlon before I came to this world :) My fave designer is actually from your part of the world - Elie Saab!

  4. Sounds like a designer that I would like. I always go for simplistic and comfortable, but can also be dressed up a bit if need be.

    1. I also go for simplistic, comfortable plus radiant :) I like to wear things and colours that give energy to the viewers, to radiate warmth and calmness like a lil' ember :)
