Rebecca Wang Attends BAFTA Awards 2013


Argo beat the competition to take the gong for Best Film at this year's BAFTAs, with Skyfall awarded Outstanding British Film. Leading Actor went to Daniel Day Lewis for Lincoln, Emmanuelle Riva was named Leading Actress for Michael Haneke's Amour, while Christoph Waltz and Anne Hathaway walked away with the awards for Supporting Actor and Actress respectively. Although it garnered the most nominations overall, Steven Spielberg's Lincoln did not receive one for Best Director. That award went to Ben Affleck for Argo.

The 2013 BAFTA award nominations were notable for their variety and quality, representing big-budget blockbusters, stunning international cinema and left-field independent films. The awards were always predicted to be "a wide open race", and this, to quote BAFTA's chairman Michael Willis, "really reflects the health of cinema throughout the world."

Stephen Fry hosted the evening, and a stellar list of nominees and leading members from the film industry were in attendance, including Ben Affleck, Anne Hathaway, George Clooney, Ang Lee, Quentin Tarantino, Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Steven Spielberg, Sam Mendes and Jennifer Lawrence.
Hollywood producer Rebecca Wang attended in her capacity as a member of the Academy Circle, which constitutes the charitable side of BAFTA. She is strongly committed to a proactive role in enabling, encouraging and supporting all art forms of creative talent across the film industry.

In addition to the high-profile awards ceremonies held annually in London, Los Angeles and New York, BAFTA runs a year-round Learning and Events programme aimed at audiences of all ages and backgrounds across the UK and USA. The programme offers unique access via workshops, master classes, lectures and mentoring schemes to some of the world's most inspiring talent.

The Academy has also in recent years extended the range of access to resources that inform and inspire. Its online archive is a treasure trove of features, photographs and interviews.

The 66th BAFTAs took place at London's Royal Opera House on Sunday 10th February, and a post-ceremony dinner was hosted at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

Red carpet coverage was provided by BBC Three and BBC One broadcast the awards ceremony itself. Four new 360-degree cameras were employed to span the carpet, enabling viewers at home to enjoy the evening's proceedings.

The date is set. The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.  In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.  The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.   In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.  By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout. The plan is se

Too Many Fashion Blogs

Is it possible that the world currently has too many fashion blogs? Obviously I understand that fashion is the most interesting subject matter in the universe, but why does everyone wish to blog about it. Although I have not yet completed an official count, I estimate approximately six zillion may be in existence. Here are a few reasons that may possibly contribute to the over population of style relevant blogs: Fashion blogs can make bloggers money (advertising, affiliate programs, etc). Fashion blogging is a creative process. Fashionistas are creative people; it makes sense that they enjoy writing. Fashion bloggers are tired of reading opinions from other people and wish to express their own opinion. Although it is embarrassing to admit, I contribute to several but do NOT derive much of an income for my efforts (yes, this is maybe because I do not write well…). Therefore, I do not think financial gain is the primary reason that the world has to

Fashion Goes in Cycles

They say that fashion goes in cycles.  What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend.  Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs.  One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
