You can see the world through rose-colored glasses, or you can see the world through Joan Didion’s Celine tortoiseshell ones…that is for $27,000 you can! On this week’s episode, Chioma Nnadi and I discuss the astounding prices and deification seen at Stair Galleries’ Joan Didion auction, the drama surrounding the World Cup in Qatar, how Dominic West is too hot to play Prince–err King–Charles on season 5 of The Crown, what Balenciaga leaving Twitter means for the fashionsphere and the heated Los Angeles mayoral race.
We also have a tear jerker of an interview: Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova–Supernova to fashionphiles–and her long lost sister Jenna, who was adopted at birth, reconnect through a DNA app. We got to speak to the two sisters about their joyful, tearful and, frankly, astounding, reunion, from South Carolina to Paris.
Next, Chioma catches up with Michaela Coel, brilliant mind behind the genre-defying HBO hit show I May Destroy You, and current star of the new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Chioma recently traveled to Accra, Ghana with Coel for Vogue’s November cover shoot and story and the two of them rollerbladed and spent time with Coel’s family. Now they chat about Coel’s next steps, her daunting fitness regimen, and joining the Black Panther family.
