A short recap on a few of women who have been winning in the entertainment industry. Highlighting Zendaya’s dip back into music, Zoe Kravits’s Catwoman, and Rihanna’s iconic maternity looks.
After Spiderman: No Way Home, Dune, and Euphoria, Zendaya’s talents and abilities have solidified her place in the entertainment industry today. Her versatile acting skills and gravitational energy through big screens have built her reputation as a force to be reckoned with. But her work doesn’t stop there. Following the season finale of Euphoria, Zendaya released the full-length song, I’m Tired, which was featured in episode four of the series. In collaboration with British singer Labrinth, Zendaya makes a small debut towards the end to close out the expressive song. Her soft, delicate voice ties together all of the emotions felt. The response from fans has been nothing but positivity and appreciation for her return to music. In a recent tweet, Zendaya expressed her gratitude explaining that her love for music has always been there, and support of her “tiny toe-dip” back into music was everything to the star.
The Batman reboot has fans raving and a large part is owed to Zoe Kravits in her role of Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman. Her interpretation of the comic book character has caused a stir in the industry but could be the creation of an added face to the LGBTQIA+ community. Catwoman in the original comics has always been portrayed as bisexual. After eight movies and Catwoman’s later, Kravits finally brings Selina Kyle’s sexuality and true form to the big screen. In the most subtle and sultry way, her reference to her friend, Anika, as “baby” was all that comic book fans needed to hear. Kravits’ take on Catwoman may have been the most intriguing and accurate yet, playing a big role in the movie’s immediate success.
Since her pregnancy announcement last month, Rihanna has been glowing. After successes with her lingerie brand Savage X Fenty and beauty line Fenty Beauty, the iconic singer is entering a new era as a mom-to-be. In true Rihanna fashion, carrying a growing baby doesn’t stop the fashionista from serving looks. In the words of Maddy from Euphoria, “I wouldn’t wear any of the nast maternity clothes. I would just be me, plus pregnant.” To start off Women's History Month, Rihanna was spotted at Dior’s runway show in Paris sporting a sheer lace slip, leather coat, and pointed leather heeled boots. Within the next few days, the star posts yet another OOTD showing off her Stella McCartney blue cut-out jumpsuit, peeking out her round belly, paired with pointed heels and layered gold jewelry. Who can do it like Rihanna? Her confidence and glow during this pregnancy inspire many and are rewriting the norms for maternity fashion.
