I’m going to see Haim tonight with a friend and it’s been a really long time since I went to a small gig. From experience comfort is my number one priority, so this evening I am in a pair of super comfy high tops. But as for my make up, well I felt like something dramatic! First up, I tried a plum colour and coupled with dark eyes, it was really, well, a bit much. See below: So I went…

Jessica Chastain at the SAG awards.

I cannot wait to see Zero Dark Thirty , not because I think Katherine Bigelow is an amazing director, and I love how she is leading the way for up and coming female directors. Nope.
